Very fun. Both kids said they had a blast!(ages 6 & 4). Adults must ride with kids under 56in in height. Comfortable seats and not to jerky.

Our family of four, kids are 12 and 5, had so much fun riding the coaster. My youngest and I rode tandem, and he had so much fun. We never touched the brake on the downhill slopes and it never felt out of control, only really smooth and fun. It was a longer coaster than I anticipated, which was a pleasant surprise. The staff were all friendly and helpful. They were taking the time to clean between every customer, but we waited only a few minutes to board. One of the guys checking our safety harness even took the time to show our kids some baby birds in the edge of the wall before he sent us up the mountain. Overall, I would come back again and again.

We enjoyed this mountain coaster. It is a longer ride than the others in the area, with 5 lift hills. I am an older lady and I had fun on this ride, as did my 19 year old coaster enthusiast. It really is a ride that would suit most anyone. The staff was friendly and professional. Definitely recommend.
