"Pony Express" is a Zamperla design that places riders on one of 16 "horses," which launch from zero to 38 mph in three seconds. The Pony Express-themed ride takes riders through a series of banked turns and hills over a 1,300-foot track.


It's an ok coaster. The launch is very weak, however the fact that your riding on a horse adds to the thrill. After the launch, you do some cool elements, but they'd the ride ends. Overall, this ride is way too short. Yeah it's fun, but it's usually not worth the wait.
Yeah, it was short, but it was fun! The feeling of being on a horse was different and exciting but at the same time I felt secure. I thought the launch had a good amount of force and the hills (even though they hardly count as hills) were enjoyable. Even though it was very brief, so was the line. In the end the ratio of riding to waiting was probably the same as any other coaster in the park. (7.5/10)
Nice concept. Lame implementation
