Manufactured by Premier Rides, Poltergeist is a steel roller coaster tht launches guests from 0 to 54 miles per hour in just 3 seconds. The ride's original over-the-shoulder restraints were replaced in 2002 with a more comfortable lap bar system.

While the launch is the highlight, Poltergeist's circuit also features a number of inversions, including a cobra roll, a sidewinder and a corkscrew.
