A solid ride, and a texbook example of a well designed wooden coaster. It lacks the modern envelope pushing design, but still, it's impressive how good coasters designed prior to 1950 can be.
EnjoymentGreat fun. Starts off with a couple of big drops and turns, and concludes with four quick airtime hills in a row.
EffectivenessA popular ride that appeals to everyone. Thrilling for thrillseekers, but good for adventurous families too.
IntensityHeaps of airtime on the final part.
Rider ComfortRan quite well for an older ride.
PacingKeeps a brisk pace throughout, owing to a fairly large first drop and the rest of the hills being a bit lower.
Upkeep/PresentationAn older ride. Nothing visibly damaged, but like most of Knoebels, it still looks old.
