Wow what a rush. I love it at the top and then the straight drop back down.

This is an amazing coaster. The launch is incredible. I sat in the back and up front and front is definatley the best. Its worth waiting for. If you goto PKD you must ride this.

HOLYFREAKINGCOW!!!!!!!!!!!That is about the only way to describle the acceleration and G-forces on this coaster. The launch is simply incredible. The vertical climb up pulls tremendous G-forces and the vertical drop is quite fun. The only problems with this ride are that it is very short nad is accompanied by a very long wait. The ride also has a tendancy to shut down. But the ride is extremely smooth and so fast that it is over before you know it. You gotta ride this just for the great acceleration.

Had a 3 Hr. wait...(It shut down twice while in line + chose to sit in the front) The ride is totally unique...no doubt about it. If only the ride capcity was greater and the ride itself was longer...but this is a pioneer coaster with some quirks that have to be worked out. A lot will be learned from it and bigger and better things will come....

It was a letdown. The launch is exciting but you only go straight down not any more than 50 feet. The rest of the ride is jerky and not that fun.

the launch makes up for the brevity of the ride and the long lines.

Its a one trick pony, but its one heck of a trick. Shot out of a cannon, straight up, over the top with good air, then straight back down. While the ride is great there are serious problems with capacity. On 7/18, it was still only operating at a capacity of only 320 riders per hour; and thats when its running, which it isnt half of the time. That means in an average 10:30-10:00 park day it can only handle about 1800 riders. Some coasters can carry that many in an hour.

This ride still has a breakdown problem but I waited an hour on a slow day and thought it was worth it. 0 to 80mph in 1.8 seconds will definately get you attention.
