Set right along the beach, this easily has the best setting of any impulse coaster. It is also unique in that its back spiral is twisted, not straight like all of the other inverted impulse coasters. This ride usually has a short line so dont worry about long lines. As you wait in line the train launches right in front of you making it intimidating. When the train flies through the station there is a big rush of air that follows. Buckle yourself in, be prepared for a great ride! After the ride ops check everyones seatbelts they give the ok, run off the track, and prepare to launch. Your fate rests in the ride op in charge of the button that will launch you 70 mph up and down 2 twisted spikes over 200 feet tall. Sometimes they do the normal 3 2 1 other times they tease you by counting down and launching on a random number. Unfortanutely I got the 3 2 1. Nonetheless, the launch still took me by surprise as were speeding down the track at extremely fast speeds. I was sitting near the back so I didnt get that much twisting the first time up the first spike. Down we go and through the station and up the second tower. Seeing the world twisted below you was disorienting and fun! Down you go and another powerful launch makes you go even faster and you fly up the spike and watch the train get closer and closer to flying off the track! Before you do though, you fly back down, through the station, and up the twisted spike even higher. Sitting in the back made this part the funnest as you are 200 feet up and seeing the ground twisted below you. Down you, up one more time on the twisted spike, and your ride is over. I like the standard vertical tower better then the twisted one because I like rushing towards the ground vertically rather then twisting your way down. For that I like Vertical Velocity just a tiny bit better, but this ride is still fantastic and easily rerideable.

Excellent review. Did you get air-time on the rides spikes? I assume you would.
