The Experience

* Arrangement: Riders are arranged 2 across, 6 seats per car for a total of 18 riders per train.
* Notes: This is an enclosed Windstorm design. Storyline starts sometime during the 1880s and the local town is on fire. Many volunteer firefighters are needed to help put it out. As a rider on the coaster, you become a member of the volunteer fire department. As you travel through the dark ride elements gaining more details to the story such as the panicky yet futile efforts of the locals to combat impending disaster, you never suspect of actually traveling up a spiral lift hill. The burning town features early animatronic characters and a collapsing bridge, but all this flees from your mind when it quickly becomes apparent that you have no idea where you're being taken in the dark. In the end, you’ll quickly see the only remedy for the situation you've gotten yourself into is ... splashdown!
* Structure: Similar to Silver Dollar City's Fire in the Hole. Train cars are brown with black blaze marks. Theming is quite extensive both inside and outside.
* Elements: Powered through non-drop segments such as the dark ride story, spiral lift hill, 3 drops, and the final super saturating finale.
* Features: A "powered" roller coaster with an interesting twist. Some would consider it a dark ride or at the very least an indoor themed ride with quick gravity powered drops. It's an unconventional approach to coaster design in its combination of dark/water/coaster elements that work beautifully.

The Verdict
It's great seeing people ride this for the first time. You know something is askew when the train returns to the station more than a little wet. I must confess I did not know what to expect my first time - it's a very good ride, you can't see where you're going and you hear screams in the distance while waiting in the queue area.
I rate it 4 Star's
