Usually I find these Space Shots to pale in comparison to turbo drops, but this one was one of the best Ive been on. The launch was very fast and forceful and at the top I got a great view combined with some great floater air at the top.

Appearance very well maintained drop tower. Gives great view of the park. Capacity high. Ride duration long.Very fast and smooth ride with floater air at the top. Fun factor high I rode it 5 times when I visited. I rank it as one of the top attractions at the park.

Ok... It looks scary before you get on. But trust me... It is the most funniest ride I have ever been on. It will take you up and then drop you. When you get to the top, You are pritty much weightless. By the way, It is an increadible view of the Altoona (Sorry if I spelled the city wrong) metro area. Yes, Lars, you are correct! Now, The sad thing is that they dont have the high schoolers and the old people anymore. (At least the last time Ive been at Adventureland. Make sure to get on this ride!

I found this to be one of the best launch rides. APPEARANCE-8 It is very clean looking and well maintained, but pretty bland. I scored the extra couple points because of the view from the top and the way it just pops out of the trees when you view it from other rides in the park. CAPACITY-8 Only one tower, but they had three ride ops and they didnt fiddle around. Also the retiree running it was really having a good time. RIDE QUALITY-10 Very smooth, fast launch with floater air at the top. FUN-10 I rode it four times and had just as much fun on the first time as the last. RERIDE-10 My second favorite ride at this gem of a park whose service rivals any park I have been to. OVERALL-46 AVG-9.2 9 average and a great ride at a great park.

Nothing special? With an incredible view of the Des Moines metro area and the comedy (Chuck, you put it perfectly!), this ride comes in the top five at Adventureland. The faces of riders as they shoot into the sky makes the wait in the que line well worth it and once you ride it, you cant wait for another turn. Ive riden similar rides elsewhere, but this one, for some odd reason, takes the cake!

The only large S&S space shot to give me sustained floater air. The ride ops at this park are a mix of retiries and high schoolers, the comedy that results is priceless.
