The Experience

* Arrangement: Riders are arranged 2 across, 6 seats per car for a total of 30 riders per train.
* Notes: Footprint area consists of 12 acres. Built at an estimated cost of $20 million USD.
* Structure: Track is made of Douglas-fir & column supports are Southern Yellow Pine. All in all, 1.65 million board feet of lumber was used in the construction. The since removed loop was made of steel. Originally ran with 6 cars per train. Each train was shortened a car for the 2006 season. These trains are subject to change once again for the 2007 season.
