Ride experience

Once the train is loaded and secured, it dispatches from the station and immediately passes over the transfer track. Afterwards, the train climbs the 325-foot (99 m) chain lift hill. Once at the top, the train drops toward the ground at a 81-degree angle reaching a maximum speed of approximately 95 miles per hour (153 km/h). Following the drop, the train enters a 190-foot (58 m) high barrel turn. It then travels through a high speed s-curve, making its way to the park’s main entrance. Passing over the entrance, the train makes a banked turn to the left leading into a 157-foot (48 m) high horseshoe.

At the top of the horseshoe, the train hits a 91-degree angle before dropping toward the ground and under the guest pathway leading to the park entrance. It then enters a second banked turn to the left, reaching a height of 101 feet (31 m). Following a straight section of track, the train goes over a 111-foot (34 m) camelback hill and makes a near-180-degree turn. It then enters a second camelback hill, followed by a left turn into a third camelback hill that ends with the final brake run. The train makes a 180-degree turn as it returns to the station. According to Carowinds, the total ride time is three minutes and 25 seconds.
