Volcano: The Blast Coaster

The current version of this description is at Volcano: The Blast Coaster.

Volcano is an inverted LIM-launched coaster built around a man-made Volcano that occasionally erupts with fire, smoke, and sound effects.

At the start of the ride the train slowly creeps around a corner then launches from 0 to 70 mph in 3 seconds. The train goes full speed around a long flat section of track behind the mountain. As the train approaches the mountain from the rear, another series of magnets blasts the train straight up and out the top of the Volcano. From there, the train circles the Volcano once, makes a right dive back into the mountain and into the brake run. There are three heart line twists while you circle the Volcano.

Volcano is currently rated as the 35th best steel coaster on the planet by Amusement Today (2010). -- Last edited by James Rao on September 16, 2010
