Really smooth fun family coaster. I enjoyed it for the ride it is. - Andrew Dougherty

The Whizzer is just a plain fun ride that everyone enjoys. It was the first coaster in the park, yet still is one of the smoothest. Only one like it in America! - Joey Till

Although i care for this ride id much rather have this than shockwave this is a one of a kind roller coaster - Bob Miller

This is a family favorite. Not too rough. It provides just enough of a thrill to make it fun for younger riders, but it's not too scary for them. - Trisha Levine
