My first stand-up coaster. Scared the hell out of me because a girl fainted on it while I was in line.Had to wait about 30 more minutes for the girl to wake up. Well worth the wait,scary as hell, and huge airtime on the bunny hops. Uncomfortable seats gives it a 9.

The only stand-up coaster in Virginia. Definite must-ride even though the train seats are complex and uncomfortable.

TOGO has managed to build fun stand-up coasters. This and King Cobra are just a hoot. Its no top of the line ride, but is a good space filler. The bunny hills provide for the best part of the ride as you get some scary stand-up airtime!

This ride was painful. The first time I rode it (in 1992), I enjoyed it, but on my most recent trip to Kings Dominion, this was my LEAST favorite ride by far. If you missed it, youre not missing anything.

Looks more fun than it is. The stand-up feature is fun, but the ride is relatively painful and uninspired.

It provides some decent thrills at first, but then becomes a rough, headbanging painfest. The restraints are very uncomfortable. The first drop is fiar but not overly thrilling. The vertical loop is quite fun but then the ride bombs out as soon as you go into the helix. The last half of this short ride involves getting airtime and then immediately being jerked into turns, resulting in serious headbanging. TOGO needs to learn some lessons from B&M on how to build goos standup coasters.

Very uncomfortable restraint system. Not one of my favorite steel coasters. Pretty rough. If they inproved the restraints it could be a fun coaster. Nice hill and loop but painful. One ride was enough for me.

This thing hurts. Its an eyesore too. The first drop and loop is fun, but its all downhill from there.
