Formally the Borg Assimilator. The Carolinas' first flying coaster is also the tallest roller coaster in the park. It soars riders through eight inversions, most while flying facedown, zooming toward the ground and turning skyward just in time for the next inversion. The unique rider position offers breathtaking and virtually unobstructed views of the park.

Near the front, it's an 8.5/10. It's smooth and fun! Near the back, it's a 6/10 because it's gets pretty rough and shaky. This ride would be really great if it had more time where you are riding face-down so you can feel the sensation of "flying" for longer.

Takes forever to load. It's good, but B&M flyers are so much better.
