The Verdict
Riding in the front yields the best view, but the back gives you quite a kick. So far with it's unique standing position, you actually do not feel the G's as you would sitting down. The track is not as long as other stand-ups, not as fierce as Mantis or Chang, but is fun and is the tallest stand-up in the Southeast. The very back car lends itself to the familiar B&M kick as the rest of the train pulls you over. Also this B&M does not have the familiar flat brake run platform as others, presumably because the ride time is shorter. All in all, a very nicely done coaster for SFOG, it was designed within the terrain limitations right outside the park's entrance.
I rate it 7 Star's

It is very good, not jerky at all. It would be better with more inversions and longer ride time ... but other than that it's really good.

This was a very fun ride. However it seemed like it was very short in length. I ranked it 3rd on my list for stand up coasters. I would recomend it to other coaster fans to ride it.
