Best coaster, In my point of view. Just cause somebodys ride is bigger doesnt mean its better. the bunny hops at the end are awesome. the mist is refreshing. the hills are great. very fun.

This ride is great for a first time hypercoaster rider. The first drop is one of the best there are out there, and the visual of the ride that you get when you ride up gets my adrenaline flowing every time. Unfortunately if youve been on tons of hyper-coasters or even a giga-coaster this ride will not satisfy you totally. The ride has a few badly paced parts such as the long staight track after the first helix and the exit from the second helix into the bunny hills. The most exciting part of the whole ride for me is the exit of the first helix and the entrance to the second. All Ill say is keep your hands up if you dare!

After the first drop and initial turn on this ride it gets very boring. The helixs provide great speed but they are too long which makes them boring. There is also entirerly too much strait track. The airtime on the 3rd hill is incredible but after that the ride is too slow. I would say its not worth the time to wait but sadly enough this is the best ride in the park. Ride SROS at Six Flags New England instead.

This is easily the parks BEST ride. The first drop is the best part, with the steep drop and mist over the water. The turns are a little repetative, except that near- miss with the support on the left side! The final drops are fun, and make for a good ride picture. Add one point to make it a 9 if you ride it in the dark!

The first hill is nice, but it just seems like the rest of the ride was designed merely to help slow the ride down. There isnt anything too different after the first hill that cant be found on smaller rides... Its good, but I cant help feel there should be something more.

Ive rode better, because I dont like ejector airtime, I love to float and thats it. Nice speed, and drops, return hops were medium.

This ride was very cool. Good airtime, especially towards the end.

It has a great start, a mediocre middle, and a decent ending. Easily the best coaster in the park.
