Formally the Borg Assimilator. The Carolinas' first flying coaster is also the tallest roller coaster in the park. It soars riders through five inversions, most while flying face-down, zooming toward the ground and turning skyward just in time for the next inversion. The unique rider position offers breathtaking and virtually unobstructed views of the park.

The headbanging and extreme nausea is completely unbearable. The rides restraints are uncomfortable at best, the lines are way to long and the ride is overall a skip it even if you have the time.
