Wicked is a launched roller coaster located at Lagoon in Farmington, Utah. It opened on June 1, 2007. Wicked is manufactured by Zierer and is made more thrilling due to the forces it creates, the lap bar restraints, and the elements it has.

The ride is located at the front-side of the park and is easily seen from the I-15. It is in the South-Midway section of the park.

The ride has green track. The supports on the tower are yellow, while the rest are silver.

Ride ExperienceEdit

Wicked Launch Tower

The main attraction of the ride, the vertical launch tower.

Wicked Zero-G Roll

The ride's inversion, a zero-g roll

The ride starts by turning in a dark tunnel. A siren sounds with a large boom, sending riders shooting straight up the verticle 110 feet tall launch hill at 40 mph, cresting and going down the other side, reaching speeds of 55 mph on the vertical slope. Riders then travel over an airtime hill with a trim brake, before going up and quickly flipping around a sharp overbanked turn. The track levels out, and riders are sent through a zero-g roll. The track then descends, and riders are sent through a small shallow turn into the mid-course brake run. Riders descend into a double half-pipe, then being twisted to the right, left then into a right downward helix, then twisting to the left, then descending into a trench covered by a tunnel. The track then ascends and levels out into the final brake run, before returning to the station.

TrainsEdit

6 single-car trains. Riders are arranged 4 across in 2 rows for a total of 8 riders per train.

NameEdit

The ride is rumored to of been named by the daughter of Dal Freeman (a designer/engineer of Magnum XL-200) as "Wicked" after the famous musical and book, or after the fact that the design looked "Wicked" to her.

Early ProblemsEdit

A welding problem was discovered before the ride's intended opening, and parts of the track had to be rebuilt or replaced. The problem was discovered while checking the structural integrity of the columns using x-ray. Also, on one of its first test runs when the launch was not near full power as it is now; the train did not clear the overbanked turn, and rolled back, and valleyed between the bottom of the launch hill and the airtime hill.
