The ride opens in May of next year and will have a record breaking climb up it's first hill of 306 feet. This is followed by a 80 degree drop. The ride will be 5,486 feet long and will include giant camelback hills reaching 180 feet, along with a hammerhead turn at 115 degrees that crosses above the front gate of the park. Speed freaks will also be satisfied as the coaster reaches a top speed of 148 kph or 92 mph.
