This ski lift gone wrong thrills riders with six massive inversions and a top speed of 67 MPH. The B&M inverted coaster is consistantly rated among the top 20 steel roller coasters in the world, and takes guests on an incredible Alpine adventure.

In the Busch Gardens camp, fans seem to be either massive fans of Apollo's Chariot or massive fans of Alpengeist. Throw me in the latter camp. Both rides are excellent, but 'geist packs more of what I like into a coaster: unpredictability. The front row of Apollo's Chariot packs wonderfully smooth airtime with beautiful views. The back row of Alpengeist packs an out-of-control, unpredictable, incredibly fast avalanche of a coaster. The ride is appropriate in name. It started as a misstep on a ski hill and snowballed into chaos. Loved it.

And incredible at night, too.

In my opinion, the best ride in the park. It's so crazy, fast, and intense. VERY underrated coaster. It is much smoother in the first row though.
