Somewhat a part of enthusiast folklore, the beast goes on for a very long time, and really feels like you've travelled for miles into the woods, and at night that feeling is further enhanced. The layout is unique, with long straights and helices. It's a good ride, but could have a bit more action along the way.
EnjoymentA good ride, just for it's monumental scale, which is largely unmatched. Its pretty "untamed.
EffectivenessRemains ever popular. Having spot lights ruins the night time aspect a little bit, for no good reason.
IntensityModerate intensity. The long helix is perhaps the most intense part, and has some decent headchoppers too. Not a great deal of airtime.
Rider ComfortA bit rough.
PacingThe pace is killled in a couple of spots with brakes, and the multiple lift hills, but at the same time there are sections of sustained high speed, and the ride does go for a VERY long time.
Upkeep/PresentationIn reasonable repair, but at the same time is nearing 40 years old.
