We are locals. Anytime we have family out of town we bring them here. They love it. Great ride and a very nice staff.

I rode this coaster with my 75 yr old mom and again by myself. We both loved it! If you want to ride more than once, they offer a discount on subsequent rides. This was a real treat. No long wait in line.

Kinda expensive, but everything is, make sure you get tickets on groupon or sweet deals. Son rode at night and said it was cool.

Family and others visited during the day, then later that night. It was fun and pretty quick around turns. A nice relaxing pull up the hill and then a quick descent with plenty of turns. We all enjoyed it.

At the bottom. Go to ticket booth and buy your tickets. After you load onto the coaster car you will be pulled to the top by a cable on the track.

This can be for two separate. As long as they are tall enough to be on their own. My son and I did this.
