El Toro

The current version of this description is at El Toro.

Built in 2006, this Intamin Wooden Coaster offers specs that look like a steel mega coaster: a 188-foot lift hill, 176-foot initial drop and a top speed of 70 mph. The initial drop's angle of 76 degrees is the steepest of any wooden coaster in the world. There are two trains that are usually running at full capacity.
This ride is much smoother then other wooden coasters due to the pre-fab design, insane moments of airtime, and has a very fast cable lift-hill(good for all of you who fear the clanking of the slow chain). -- Last edited by Dan Forget on December 7, 2007
