DesignEdit

Elements

Vertical Loop

Greezed Lightnin' launched from the station to a top speed of 57 mph (92 km/h) in a total of six seconds. Next, the ride traveled through a vertical loop and up a 70 degree incline. At this point, the ride fell backwards through the entire design and past the station to another incline. After climbing and falling down that incline, the train slowly braked into the station.
