Here's the 1, significant downside to this one: trim brakes. Several times you slow down a lot before a drop re-accelerates you. In fact, it almost feels like 4 separate mini-rides smushed together into one big coaster. Fortunately, the sum of it all is quite good, even if it would have been better with smoother transitions between segments. There's an initial vertical lift, some steep drops, quality inversions (including a nice vertical loop with some twisting) and an unusual, slalom-like section before you hit a good helix. The coaster's gimmick is also a plus: when boarding, you use a touchscreen to select a personal soundtrack song. I recommend going with "Sabotage".

This rollercoaster is one of the best I have ridden. You go up a giant 90 degree hill (yes, straight up) and then you plunge down into insanity. Some features of this ride include a giant loop with a corkscrew at the top, and multiple instances of going sideways. In addition, you can pick a song to listen to while riding via a touchscreen built into your lap bar. This is a very good rollercoaster, but your head bangs around a LOT because of the lack of a properly cushioned headrest. I have to say, a small headache is a fair price of riding a rollercoaster like this.
