Special Info
The original electric spiral lift was replaced with a regular chain hill when the ride was moved to Adventure World.

Under the previous system each train was equipped with electric motors which powered a rubber tyre which ran on a gripped steel track on the centre of the track. For the lift section there was a another electrified rail in the middle of the track to power this motor. This system proved to suffer from significant maintenance and operational issues and as such the system was replaced with a standard chain powered lift hill.
