The Verdict
This one has gotten rougher over the years, there's a lot of twisting. If you put your head back on the rest when you go into a loop and raise it up when you are coming out of the loop, you will fair well and reduce the head banging. Also way too short for my tastes. The new paint job makes it look outstanding.
I rate it 5 Star's

Granted this coaster tends to be rough at times, but the Ninja offers one of the most unique riding experiences. The back to back butterfly loops totally disorient you, and provide you with headchoppers when entering and exiting the loops. This ride probably also has the best headchopper effects of any steel coaster I've ridden on. If you sit in car seven, first row I find that area to be the smoothest. The sidewinder loop is probably the area of the coaster you would want to brace yourself the most where as entering the loop you tend to shuffle back and forth! It's a great coaster overall, and its placement over the lake provides an incredible aesthetic look for the coaster.

At the beginning, there is a drop in your gut, and then you slowly go up a hill, and whoosh, you drop at least 50 feet, and into 5 inverts, a corkscrew, and you get thrown to the end.
