Absolutely ridiculous how much they charge. Further, the people that work here are obnoxious. You can’t even enjoy the ride without the juveniles that work here playing horribly terrible karaoke - literally screaming over the microphone. Not worth the money.

Great adventure for the whole family. Brought our 14 year old daughter. She and I rode together the first time then she went alone. Lots of fun!!

Fun ride but expensive for a ride that lasts about 2 minutes! Does have its own parking lot which was nice.

We decided when driving by this roller coaster to try it. It was a lot of fun. The young adults ended up going a couple of times. Great fun!

My husband and I give this coaster an A+ . It was a great ride about 7 minutes long and fast. We tried 2 others and this one was our #1 pick.

Yep...don’t use the brakes until they tell you too. You will not fly off.
