General Overview

Park History
Currently closed indefinitely.

Special Info
This ride was designed with separate load and unload stations and able to simultaneously load and unload two cars at once. The system featured a load station in the same position that guests board today, with an unload station back around the 90 bend just after the ride's brake run.

In 2002 the park stopped using the separate unload station, instead unloading passengers in the second load area.

In 2004 the ride's control system was completely overhauled using more modern computer and PLC systems to control the ride's block system, and it is not known whether under this new system is able to load and unload passengers using the original two platforms.
