  • Two tips for this roller coaster: 1) Don't pay full price. You can get coupons or combo deals (we did a 3 attractions for 57$) which make this way cheaper than paying at the counter. The combo deal we...  more »
  • Make sure to ask about 2 for 1 or other specials when you check in. They may offer coupons if you are staying at the hotel or if you are an M Life Member. Arcade was cute for kids! 
  • Was a lot of fun but a little jerky. I needed an adrenaline rush and got it. Close to the parking lot so if that's all you do you can leave within your free hour. Just didn't like that I had to pay fo...  more »

  • I'm a roller coaster junkie. I live in Florida, which means I have access to many large coasters. I've probably ridden every roller coaster in my state. Anyways, what I'm trying to say is that I have enough experience to say that this ride was not what I expected it to be. It was EXTREMELY rough and bumpy. I got off the ride feeling like I'd been beat up and with a terrible headache. Still, I don't regret riding it. It's definitely a Vegas landmark, and something to check off the bucketlist. If you're gonna ride it, I recommend sitting closer to the front so you don't get that whiplash.
  • I forgot the exact price, but there's a one time purchase ticket or the whole day ride kind of deal. Regardless, the ride was okay and short. It does give a nice view up there though. It'll be great if it was a longer ride.
  • I was looking forward to ride this roller coaster and willing overlook the $14 price, but it was definitely NOT worth it. I was actually scared halfway through that I would come out with an injury it was that bumpy and painful. Vegas is good for a lot of things, this roller coaster is not one of them. Don't waste your money.
  • Fun, but not worth $14. Roller coaster was fun and thrilling, but the ride was short and extremely bumpy. I got off the roller coaster with a headache because your head bangs side to side on the seat because of how rough and bumpy it is.
  • Queue was long, and unorganized. Roller coaster was fun! But a little rough on the neck and shoulders. Friend had pain in his neck the next day
