Great wooden! Maybe a bit bumpy, but it has a long and intense ride throughout the entire ride, and is basically a great coaster! It is a big jerky and you can get some bruises on the sides of your legs from the middle divider and side of the lap bar (especially if you have hard things in the lower pockets of cargo pants). But a great ride! Even better at night, too.

It&#39.s a great ride if you fight back. When it jerks to the left, make yourself jerk to the right and vice-versa. I think the people who whine about it being too rough are the people who lounge in the seat, not preparing for the turns ahead.

Great wooden coaster.Maybe the greatest with all the airtime you get. Its a smooth ride the day after a good rain.

One of my favorite woodies! This one is great because it lasts a while. Once I broke my glasses but thats when I forgot to take them off so I put them in my pocket. Bad Idea. Now I just wear them because its not too rough.

The first time I rode this thing, I thought it was fun and rough, almost too rough. Not to mention the brake run almost gives you whiplash. The second time I rode it, I was amazed at how much better it is the second time. I love the roughness; maybe it was smoother way back when, but now, its perfect. Thats how wooden rollercoasters should be. Its fast. The end is amazing, when you go hauling over the end hills. The best. Although, me and my friend rode it even faster then normal, we broke down by the lift hill, and the train hit the lift hill faster, thus making the whole ride faster. That was awesom. Great ride.

Very good wooden coaster. It wasnt intense as Id expected but really fun. The brakes could have been on softer to make a more furious finale, but the finale is still awesome. Had 3 good moments of air, and the rest of the ride was one fun element after another.

Definately this is an awsome ride! And it does show who is the boss. Cute topping before going over the first drop with the Cyote and Road Runner. Can we discuss this? It does really apply! A must for wooden coaster enthusiasts. But my heart is still with the Phoenix in Knobles.

You have to ride it twice to appreciate it. The first time I rode, I absolutely hated it. The second, time, I loved it. The first drop sucks, but what I love about the ride is, it gets going so quick at the end, due to tiny hills and short turns. It really hauls ass.
