This was a lot of fun but honestly for the time it takes it is a bit on the pricey side. I would still take other family members but the price will stop me from making repeat visits for myself.

"Fun, No Overhead Loops, Great Sharp Turns, Downhill Coaster Ride!"

I have wanted to try this for several years, but my wife wouldn't go, so I finally said "To heck with it, I'll just go by myself!" And, so I did. The location is a little off the beaten path but easy to get to since it's right on HIghway165. Each rider has their own car, they are spaced out very well, probably based on the slowest speed of the carts, so faster folks can't run into the slower folks.. First you have a nice relaxing slow ride to the top of the hill, which is automatic, then at the top of the hill control is turned over to you, and down the hill you go. There are signs posted on the uphill ride giving you your instructions. You totally control your own speed with two bar grips: you push them forward to go fast and pull them back to brake and go slower. Considering I'm OLD I still enjoy a good fast ride, so that's what I did and had a blast. I figured the ride was designed to handle the fastest speed you could attain, so why not go for it! OK, I did put on the brakes a little on a couple of the hairier turns, but I really did enjoy the ride. Oh, and we veterans get a discount as well. I think us children of all ages (although I do think there is an age requirement, because it's definitely not for little kids) will definitely enjoy this ride. I know I sure did.

This is a really fun ride. My husband and I both rode with our kids, during the day. We didn't want to spend the extra money to ride that night, but we did see it all lite up and it was really neat. The only con to it is the Price. It is a little pricey for just one ride.

A little pricey-need to pay for each run. But fun all the way! The day was pretty cold so we didn't have to stay in a long line.
