Arrangement: Riders are arranged 2 deep, 2 seats per car for a total of 24 riders per train.
Notes: Based on Vekoma's Custom MK-700 design and is Texas' first indoor roller coaster.
Accident & Safety Record: In 2001, a 13-year old boy unfortunately suffered broken hip, pelvis, ankle, and face bones caused by a train accident sustained after being thrown from the first car. Case was settled out of court 2 years later. Cause ultimately pointed to the ratchet teeth on the restraining T-bars had worn down. Vekoma specifications caution bars need to be replaced if more than 20% of the teeth are worn away.
Structure: Track and column supports are black. Train cars are white with black interior. Restraints are orange. The unique T-bar restraint telescopes out from the bottom and angles down against your lap before locking into place where two sets of teeth clamp down together.
Elements: Nicknamed the The Toilet Bowl because of the helices the train endures.
Features: Loading station dims lights as each train is dispatched.
Super ride for families. The bobsled styled cars allow for more than one rider and take you into the darkness for a fairly fun ride. When boarding the train from the queue gates, keep in mind it is usually a free for all. This means the track curves and you will find yourself guarding your car before others get to it and might be without a seat in this confusing setup. I rate it 4 's
