The Experience

* Arrangement: Riders are arranged 2 across, 4 seats per car for a total of 24 riders per train.
* Notes: Based on Premier's Spaghetti Bowl design. Located in the Rockville section of the park.
* Structure: Track is yellow with teal column supports. Trains are purple with teal stripes and black headrests. Theming is stylized after a spooky manor with the station inside of a house.
* Elements: Acceleration from 0-60 mph in 3.4 sec using LIM launching technology from Force Engineering down a long tunnel, followed by a cobra roll, sidewinder, and a generic corkscrew.
* Features: This ride only uses the magnetic LIMs (Linear Induction Motor) for the initial launch unlike rides such as Batman And Robin: The Chiller or Mr Freeze that also utilize booster LIMs as well.
* History: Originally trains had horsecollar restraints; during the 2002 season these were replaced with comfy and very tight lapbars.

The Verdict
If you dare enter onto the manor's property and even up into the boarded up house, prepare yourself for a dizzying 60 mph launch into a bowl of twisted track! After the restraints were changed on this ride it is more enjoyable.
I rate it 5 Star's
