When it comes back down, you can't feel your legs, it is such a high drop but I think it is a good ride =]

OMG Such a rush! Its like 5... 4.... 3... and then it leaves without warning! It was going so fast that my butt lifted off the seat! And I thought I was going to smash into the ground!!!! XD

- Jadesola,

AMAZING ride, the suspense at the top kills me. SPOILERS!Easy way to tell when you will drop is listen for a click another click then a hiss of air then you are thrown at gravity's disposal.
