A rather standard up-and-down launch-and-drop ride. There’s not much story or theming here, but the views of the park are superb — assuming you are brave enough to keep your eyes open at the top of the 199-foot tower, from where you will drop 150 feet.

Mediocre ride. If you have the luck to be placed in a spot where you can see the park it's A LOT better... My problem with this ride is that the first 5 seconds are thrilling but the rest is jut MEH. The lack of theme can be a minor problem if the ride is great...this is not the case. 5/10.

A great first launch and great views of the park don't completely make up for the brevity. Great if the line is not long. 8/10

Its good but if there is a long line is not worth it 7/10
Kelly Clemens
Great ride with some of the best views of the park. . .if you can stop screaming and pay attention.

WOAHHH THIS RIDE IS SHORT! It's thrilling, but short. Not worth waiting more than 25 minutes for. 7/10.

I like it but I think there should be more to it 8/10

The queue theming is pretty great despite the cartoony-ness. But the ride itself is lackluster and short, vertically and time wise. Even tower rides at some Six Flags parks seem to have a better launch.

if only this ride was longer!!! I love the anticipation of not knowing when it's going to launch, but I do wish it did a few more free falls!

I usually always skip this one but it offers a fun first launch and a great queue! The rest is blah. However, like I said, the theming and set up for the attraction is really great. I love the whole "Doom Alley" side street that it is located on. It's very daunting and creepy.

While it is not a bad ride, it is definitely disappointing. The queue, while a little substandard, gets you pumped up and a little terrified about the ride. The first launch off is INTENSE, but then the ride chickens out on itself and transforms into a very slow, gentle drop zone. The ride is worth doing for the intitial launch and the beautiful view you get of the park. If it is a really crowded day, skip it and come back later if there is time. This is not a must-do attraction. 7 out of 10.
