Ride ExperienceEdit

After climbing the 85 feet lift hill, a 1/3 turn follows. Riders get a glimpse of the Wild Mouse, Spider, and Wicked coasters, before plummeting down to the left, and straight through the 65 foot back-to-back loops, with riders experiencing G's of up to 4.9. Two helix turns follow, the first of which is very large, arching over the "bridge" or elevated part of the queue, the up and through the center of the second loop. After that the train passes over the roof of the station, then down and around, turning diagonally through the middle of the two loops into the G-inducing helix. There are a few more curves, then the final brake run.
