After all the hype about this ride, I came very close to not riding it! Watching the ride builds such a feeling of anticipation, I was terrified before I got in line! Everyone got loaded, and I was on the far left seat in the middle row. You go up the fastest chain lift in the world, taking you up 205 feet. You have a fantastic view of the James river and the surrounding park. Whe you get to the edge, they set the car right on the edge, so everyone can see the drop . . . and leave you there! You sit there for about 3-5 seconds, and then they drop you. It has two 90 degree drops, two Immelman loops, and a splashdown (which wasn't synched up to the ride first thing in the morning). It doesn't have hydraulic brakes, they're water, so it's a very smooth brake at the station. You can stand on a bridge and watch the people drop, and the track goes right under the bridge. It is a fantastic ride!
