  • This is a great roller coaster! It is pretty long and you go through the casino at the end. it has loops, corkscrews, everything you could ask for from a roller coaster. 
  • This is a great steel coaster! Very fun! It has 2 big hills, a loop and surprise corkscrew. However it had the worst harness I've ever experienced (and I've been on a lot of roller coasters). The way ...  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
