Fast and intense with just enough rickety action to remind you it's a woodie without frying your brain. A very fun woodie that I would appreciate at my closest regional park. After the relentless runaway Lightning Rod, however, the ride doesn't pack as much of a wallop or showcase as cool surroundings as some of the other coasters in the park. Still a solid ride and well worth doing, especially for woodie fans.
