This coaster is smooth as silk, and fast as lightning. It hugs the terrain and turns on a dime, sweeping through the course effortlessly. While Prowler is not the best wooden coaster I have ever ridden (Outlaw Run at Silver Dollar City holds that honor), it is an excellent ride. Be sure to ride this coaster at night because there is complete darkness after the lift hill, which lends itself to an amazing "midnight" ride - the best ride in the park. 9-Outstanding.

The ride races through twists and turns smoothly with a good bit of airtime. Much more fun than what it appears to be in a POV video. As mentioned, really good night time ride. Increases the sensation of speed and the ride is in complete darkness away from other attractions at the park. The first time you ride is especially exciting because you are unable to see the track in advance so the whole thing is a surprise. (9/10) day and (10/10) night.

This should be your top priority at Haunt. Sit in the back for best experience. 10 at Haunt/regular night and 9 at daytime.
