Layout[change | change source]

The ride slowly creeps up the lift hill to 65ft (20 m). the ride-shuttle-cars turn a almost 180-degree turn towards a holding brake. The ride-car hangs over the edge for 7 seconds or shorter. and shoots down 180ft downwards. and instantly comes back up at a 45 degree angle and goes into a small banked curve upwards and downwards into a slight incline into a brake run.
