Built in 2006, this Intamin Wooden Coaster offers specs that look like a steel mega coaster: a 188-foot lift hill, 176-foot initial drop and a top speed of 70 mph. The initial drop's angle of 76 degrees was the steepest of any wooden coaster in the world when it was built, now eclipsed by the new Texas Giant's 79 degrees. There are two trains that are usually running at full capacity. This ride is much smoother then other wooden coasters due to the pre-fab design, insane moments of airtime, and has a very fast cable lift-hill (good for all of you who fear the clanking of the slow chain).

El Toro is a masterpiece, one of the best coasters ever built. It would be difficult to imagine how anyone could construct something equally perfect. The initial drop is thrilling in the extreme and the remainder of the course is coasting at its best. The final drop provides the best ejector airtime I've ever experienced while the twisted finale is as good an ending as any I can think of.
