This is a pretty good coaster. It's the tallest coaster I've been on, so that's awesome. This might surprise some people, but probably the most intense part of the ride is the spaghetti bowl of twists and turns. I put my hands up and had to put them down because the g force was so powerful! This one gets a three and a half out of five stars. - Super Sam

Read a lot of reviews saying it was a smooth ride. As of October 2013 it is not very smooth anymore! But still a great ride! - Dennis O'Brien

This is my favorite ride at SFMM - it is an intense, fast coaster with a heckuva drop - yet it is also smooth. Love it - could ride all day. - Johnny Lawless
