The Best!!! The launch was like WHOA! The climb was like WHOA! The top was like WHOA! the fall was like WHOA! the Gs at the base of the hill was like WHOA! The rest of the ride was like HUH?
It lacked any more thrill after that. the launch was amazing, and haveing the lauch work just like fighter jets, well, I really felt like a fighter pilot (It could be named like "Mach 1" or something with a fighter jet theme) I just wished it would be more of a coaster based ride than just up, down, turn, down, stop. It seemed not like a coaster, but like a launching thrill ride. But dont let this review fool you, this is one hip coaster!

It is definitley a rush blasting off, but the rest of the ride leaves a lot to be desired. I guess they figured that you would be in so much shock from the take-off that you wouldnt notice that the rest of the track gives you about as much enjoyment as the Ricochet. Not that im berating the ride itself, the take off is ma-jorly good that I will give it an 8 on the awesomeness scale.

The only ride I can think of where you may actually crap your pants. The launch is about as close to a religious expirience as you can get on a roller coaster. The launch definatly makes up for its short ride length.

the launch is great especially waiting. The excitemant grows because you dont know when you going to launch until the green light comes on then the fun begins. After going straight up looking down at the crowed of people is great. I thought I was going to get stuck up there. You should ride if traveling there anytime soon.

I love the launch but is there really anything else cool about it?

I though the launch was amazing, but the rest of the ride was lame, and i was stapled to i recieved no air, and the brakes on the small airtime hill were very annoying.

WOW,the launch totally BLEW ME AWAY. 0-80mph in less than 2 seconds- incredible. The only problem I had with this ride was that it needed a little something else; it was just too short. I still give it a ten though.

Whoa! An awesome laucnching coaster, one-of-a-kind! It scared me seeing that huge hill in front of you, and saying, "Crap! Im about to go all the way up there!". The launch is incredible. The biggest rush of my life. The launch itself diserves a ten. But finally at the top, the hill just hurts! The airtime was great, but it hurt because of the weird crest. It was too short though. But it was different.

A GREAT LAUNCH! This launch totally blew me away- much faster than I have ever accelerated in my life. The rest of the ride is lacking however, and is rougher than I would have expected, especially with car tires on the trains. A great first ride but it has low re-ridability
