Was missing a little speed on the first drop and missing air time throughout. But it certainly has some pretty good elements.

I loved the speed/forces going into and out of the third helix. Great use of the terrain along the quarry wall and a pitch black tunnel going through the quarry wall. The ride was dramatically smoother in the front car versus the last car. Be warned: In the back you can hit your lower ribs pretty hard on the seat divider if you ride with your hands up in the air. Lastly, the trims stop the train fairly violently, which is not the roughness I want from a woodie.

this used to be my favorite roller coaster until the first hill was modified. The initial drop is not as steep or as tall so it also goes much slower, but when they modified it, they got rid of the double drop on the second hill and made it a fan turn which gives you awsome airtime and speed. But, because it was somewhat mutalated, im going to have to give it a 9. If it still had that initial drop, itd be at a 10. Also, i wish theyd get rid of the 3 circles on the cliff and make a couple drops up there instead. after the first circle, they get a little boring, but i always, for some reason, start laughing on that part of the ride. Anyways.... sorry rattler, but you got a 9.

Hard to believe they can stack wood this high. The ride is above average but the triple helix get tiresome. Ride looks better than it rides, but it is a very good ride. Looking forward to riding it again.

Am i the only one here who thinks a wood coaster should beat the crap outa you. If you want smooth go to steel. What i love about wood coasters is that they throw you around and rattler does it for me. its intense and blends perfectly with the surounding area. it has an amazing first drop, one of the steepest ive ever ridden on a wood coaster.

This ride is fun till point. The brakes going into the helix almost bring the trains to a complete stop. The drop into the tunnel is not thrilling. Ride in the back for a smooth ride.

Here is A Woodie that you would Love if you like to kill your back I loved the Coaster untill the triple circles. after and before them circles the coaster is great. but I give this one a five but its still a great American Woodie. I really think this coaster would be Hands Down My favorite Woodie If they would take out them Circles.

This ride is good but not to wait 45 or longer. the first drop is alsome for a sec. you are in mid air flooting.The back of the ride is the best for time in the air.

I re-rode this one recently and its safe to say that they have done something to it. This ride was much better than I remember it. They have eased up on the trims before entering the helix, so now you go much faster and the helix is a bit more exciting. I could not believe how much better this ride was. I loved it! I hope to ride it again soon.

This is just ok. The first drop is steep but it doesnt go as fast as youd think. The rest of the ride is nothing after that, with 2 trim brakes, killing it.

Good ride over all, but it could be a little ruffer. Not really worth the 1hour 20min wait I had to go through(it was pure Hell).
