A lot more fun than it likes. Similar to Hurricane at Adventureland, NY in that respect. The dive turn is the highlight but you do get multiples pops of air throughout the ride. The helixes are intense. If you like Wildcats you would love this as it is a like a Wildcat on steroids. What else would you expect so close to Balco Labs?

A decent windstorm. These coasters are surprisingly fun, and provide some great forces. The highlight of the ride is a sudden dive turn. It almost always catches me off guard! The rest of the coaster is fun too. There are a few moments of airtime, and some of the helixes provide great laterals. This could use a paint job, and it is quite jerky. Still a very fun ride.

I actually really like this ride, it gives you some pretty intense drops, even though its only about 50 feet high.

I thought it was pretty fun. Plus, there wasnt any wait at all for it.

Hurricane was a pretty good, medium-sized steel coaster, reminiscent of the type you might find at a traveling carnival. There were no huge drops and it was not super fast, but there were tight turns and spirals that created some intensity. There was also a twisting dive midway through that really yanks you quite forcefully. The Hurricane is also noteworthy because it, along with a few kiddie rides, are built on top of the building that houses the bumper cars and some restaurants.

Above average, but only slightly. Drops are meant to go 50 feet down, not 10 feet down 5 times. The last helix was fun though, very disorienting. Just a standard wild mouse coaster, with a few twists (no pun intended).

Ok, this WOULD be a great roller coaster but it never really builds enough speed. A couple of the dips and turns are fun, but the coaster goes so slow you feel like youre going to fall out if you dont hold on. If you do choose to ride this, dont sit on the right hand side.. youll feel like youre going to scrape your face on the ground during that last helix.

saved from neutrality by one fierce twisting drop
