Very impressive winged coaster! While there are not many winged coasters out there, this one is certainly the standard by which all others will be measured! - Dwayne Kilbourne

It's very smooth, but it didn't have the thrill factor I was expecting. Maybe the number of great rides at CP have made me a tough customer? Unlike MF, Raptor, Dragster, Magnum or Maverick, it's not a ride I want to go on again and again. There wasn't any part that provided a "wow" moment. I really wanted to LOVE this ride, but my reaction at the end was, "That was it?" My 13-year-old daughter called it "boring." She gave it a 6/10 - and said she was being generous. We had no desire to ride it again that day. On day 2, we rode on the opposite side, but it didn't make a difference for us. Also, the shoulder restraint had tightened so much by the end that it was causing me significant discomfort...and I'm a skinny guy. I thought, "If this tightens any more, it'll break my collarbone." I've never had a restraint get THAT tight on a coaster. Overall, I guess we share the feelings of a guy we overheard as we exited the ride: "It's not bad, but it's not great." - Roger S
