I agree. The layout could have been more creative but it works well within it's land constraints. However, the launch, view over the tophat, and the over-banked turns really make this coaster fun. I just wish it was longer because it could have been much more exhilarating and exciting.

The prototype hydraulic launch coaster that still packs a punch. The layout could have been a bit more imaginative, but it's worth the wait just for that take your breath away launch.
