Lift hill - The Ride!

El Diablo or The Devil is quite fitting because the monotony of this supposed roller coaster is hell!

The first drop straight out of the station may fool you into thinking this is going to be a good fun ride & even as you slowly climb the first of three lift hills & see portions of the 3300 foot track in front of you your excitement builds... it's all a complete anticlimax though!!

The worst part is after scaling the second lift hill, where after your mine cars turn a corner & pick up speed to what must be an eye watering 4/5 mph you race into the next set of air brakes before... yes, you've guessed it, another painfully slow lift hill!!

Seriously Arrow, who designed this & was it on an 'Etch a Sketch' with only one working control??!!
