The Experience

* Arrangement: Riders are arranged 4 across, 4 seats per car for a total of 32 riders per train.
* Notes: Located in the Rockville area of the park. Built at a cost of $20 million USD.
* Structure: Classic Superman red track with Superman blue column supports. Trains are blue and red with yellow restraints.
* Elements: Ascend the lift hill while turning around 90° on top of the cliff and doing a near-miss of the canyon wall straight down into a 124 ft vertical loop, from here race back up and dance on top of the cliff once again into a 370° helix before dropping back into a zero-G roll, facing head long into a 78 ft cobra roll over the water, race toward the cliff again and at the last second make an S-turn through the mid-course brakes. Finally you dive down into a double corkscrew, a sharp banked 180° helix and into the station.
* Features: The apex of the lift hill and the helix after the vertical loop extend over the cliff wall.

The Verdict
One of the longest ride times in the business makes for an enjoyable ride. Arguably the best floorless coaster in the world. With the interaction you get between the cliff walls and the quarry, it makes it that much more exciting.
I rate it 7 Star's
