Ride ExperienceEdit

After the chain lift hill a turn to the Left follows. Then a holding brake stops the train at the top of the drop for aprox. 3 seconds, then dropping the train down the drop. At the bottom of the drop, funnels scoop water from the artificial lake, spraying water several feet in the air. The train then goes into a Immelmann. An air-time hill follows, then it leads back to the final brake run.
