The Experience

* Arrangement: Riders are arranged 4 across, 4 seats per car for a total capacity of 32 riders.
* Notes: Conceived and developed Doppelmayr, an Austrian leader in cable cars, chair-lifts, ropeways, and funiculars. Based on Input's Mountain Glider model. Located in the central part of the park. Built at a cost of 3.8 million .
* Structure: Track and column supports are blue-silver gray. Each car weighs in at 920 kg. The loading station is built on the former site of Tornado, the first looping roller coaster in Europe built in 1979 and was removed during the construction.
* Elements: A unique elevator lift engages each car and ascends to the top in 13 seconds while suspended on a cable and races high above the park from tower to tower sometimes ranging in length from 150 to 200 meters between them. The final tower brings the cars through a 480 helix before descending and landing in the station.
* Features: Cars are launched every 18 seconds and is attached by cable and by rail.
* History: The park had hoped to have the ride open during the 2006 season. However technical difficulties arose in trying to level the cars as well as some wireless communication problems between the cars pushed the opening until 2007.
