Worlds of Fun opened its new $8 million wooden coaster, Prowler, on May 2.

Located in the Africa section of the Kansas City-based park, Prowler features an 85-foot spiralling first drop, hitting 51 miles per hour before entering a series of hills and sharply banked turns. You can find out more about the ride here, and a video of it in action is embedded below.

As usual with major new rides, Prowler is expected to attract large crowds during its opening season. TPT recommends that visitors to Worlds of Fun arrive early and head straight to the ride to avoid long a wait.

Have you been on Prowler since it opened? What did you think of it? Let us know in the comments section below.
