The world's tallest, fastest and steepest wooden roller coaster, standing at 165 feet tall, and featuring a sharply-angled 45 degree lift hill. On reaching the top of this, riders will plummet down a 180 foot drop at an 85 degree angle into an underground tunnel, hitting a top speed of 72 miles per hour.

The remainder of the circuit includes a 180-degree zero-g roll, that emerges into a traditional vertical loop. Riders will then pass through a new element dubbed the "inverted zero-g stall", which consists of a camelback-style hill and a 180-degree inversion, so that riders crest the hill in an upside-down position.
