A great coaster, easily the best in Wildwood. It has good drops and its compact structure makes it a little scary. The first drop is really fun, and the hills towards the end throw you right out of your seat. It never really slows doen either, without any strangely placed brakes. It has gotten a little rougher over the years, but hey it is on the beach! The best part is there is hardly ever a long line!

A wooden coaster using a steel support frame, it gives you the look of the sea side coasters of long ago. A fast start out of the station that dives into a tunnel under the pier and turns you 180 degrees toward the lift hill and the ocean. The first drop seems very steep and fast and from there the ride hardly slows down until the turnaround after the last bunny hop on the way home. Even after that turn around it gives you one more good drop and rise before the final break run and the station. Even with this though the ending seems to be the only "weak" part of an otherwise incredible ride. This coaster is great at night especially around full moon as look out over the crest of the lift hill at the moonlit Atlantic Ocean.

Not the tallest or fastest woodie ive ever been on, but it is definatetly fun! Easily the best ride on the Wildwood piers. from the first drop under the boardwalk, to the finishing camelbacks over the beach, this is a great ride.

I love how the train drops under the boardwalk as it leaves the station. Not the greatest wooden coaster, but it is a fun one. Its a good ride with a great view.

Great coaster. One of the best Ive been on. The start off goes right into the darkness of under the boardwalk. The the first 100 foot drop is great and so much fun as well as the tons of bunny hops and hills. This coaster is great and a must ride at Wildwood.

Built in 1996 this steel framed coaster uniquely starts off with a nice drop beneath the boardwalk, as if being swallowed by a "great white" from there you are cranked up a hill only to be raced down a 100 foot drop, the ride features some nice banking turns and since its opening seems to have gained some air time on the out and back bunny hills!

Great wooden coaster!! It is nice that my home state has a classicly designed seaside roller coaster--this is missing today. The First drop is wonderful, and there are many excellent curves and bunny hills. The drop and tunnel between the station and the lifthill is a nice touch.
