A unique wooden-tracked bobsled-style coaster modeled after a 1920s-era design by John Norman Bartlett and John Miller, and built in-house.

Smooth and fun, but overrated and always has a long wait.

It took 7 years of construction and testing to get this ride up and running but Knoebels certainly got it right! The 4- car trains negotiate a small lift hill and S curve before negotiating a larger lift hill and taking off. The sensation of slithering along banked turns without benefit of a track is both exciting and exhilarating. Flying indeed! I found this coaster to be far superior to the only other bobsled coaster I'd ridden. It's as smooth as can be and what a fun ride!
