An Intamin accelerator coaster, themed to be flame-emblazoned '57 Chevys, taking you from zero to 82 mph in 2.3 seconds. You launch up 205 feet in the air, then drop straight back down. Adds 2.2 gs during the acceleration.

The launch was awesome, the name really fits the coaster well. I liked how much the ride slows down over the top hat, it gives you a chance to look around and it feels like you might not make it all the way over! The next little complementary element was a nice thought but it really did nothing. The funny thing about this ride it the drop is typically where the thrill comes from, but on Xcelerator it is the way up. Best ride at Knott's by far (9/10)
