If the restraints werent so uncomfortable, Id give this ride an 8 or 9. But theres unheard of hangtime on the ride and its still pretty cool. Nothing to get all excited about.

Not as bad as it is made out to e. It is a bit painful, but the pain is tolerable. Im very glad I finally got to ride this always closed ride.

this ride killed my rib cage. Those fricken shoulder harnesses were terrible! other than that. The ride was pretty fun. For some reason, i liked handing up there on this ride more than the top spin ride they have. I just feel more secure on this one although in more pain.

This ones been at Great Adventure for years. It used to have "The Challenger" printed on the bottom on the shuttle. After the Challenger exploded they took it off.

A moderate ride, although incredibly painful at times, it has great hangtime, and is always running now after its 4 year Haitus. I enjoy it, and it has a great spot now that Supermans entrance is right there, I look forward to riding it more often again, with the nicer looking (But still painful) harnesses.

Ive heard so many bad things about this ride, so I decided to see for myself because it was open for once. Well I was very surprised to find that this ride is alot of fun! I didnt find the restraints to be one bit painful, although the harness is kinda weird as it rests on your chest instead of lap. The loops were very slow but fun because of that. The only downside to the ride is that you only get 2 loops. But this ride takes all its running time to make one loop so any more loops would make the wait very long. I also like it when the ship practicly stops upsidedown when shifting direction. Unlike swinging ships and some other looping "kamikaze" type rides, this doesnt make me nauseus; probably because it moves so slowly. The best thing about this ride is when you go on with someone who hasnt been on it before. I took my cousin on it and his expression when the ship crawled through a loop for like, no joke, 20 seconds was priceless. One thing I always wondered was if the ship has ever gotten stuck upsidedown because it uses a tire drive system similar to swinging pirate ship rides. Its improbably but it seems like it could happen...just coordinate everyone in the ship to wiggle around and it should move again I guess. lol

The ride was open once again so I decided to give it a shot. An interesting ride but the restraints are very uncomfortable and it takes a very long time to load/unload. Different from other flips rides though because you are held upside-down for a very long time

This is a painful, terrible, awful, skipable ride. This ride is one of the worse flip rides I have ridden, only a few are worse like the Double Trouble at Six Flags New England.

This flip-over ride is surprisingly painful and rarely runs. Versions of this ride at other parks (for example, the Berzerker at Paramonts Kings Dominion) are more successful because they are more comfortable.
