About

Previously named The Power Surge, the ride was rethemed and renamed Black Widow for the 2014 season.

The ride features 6 arms on a hub, with groups of 4 seats at the end of each arm that can flip. The hub spins. The hub is on the end of an arm that is lifted up from the horizontal loading position to near vertical. The mounting point of of the hub twists around. These combined movements cause the seats to flip randomly throughout the ride.
