First Drop Theming Intensity Rattle Harness Layout
Very intense ride, probably 2nd most intense B&M inverted (Flight Deck). However, the layout is literally a copy of 50 other rides in the world, the harness is way too tight, and overall it's just not a comfortable experience. It tries to get intense in the second half, but really it just ends up being really loud and painful. It's hard to enjoy this, especially when it's just a copy of 100 other rides. Flight Deck at CGA does a much better job with this, and makes a cloned layout creative.

Theming Inversions Intensity
Absolute classic coaster, one of the OGs and symbols here at CGA. I can't say enough about the pros, because pretty much every factor is going in its favor. First, the layout is absolutely superb, and those 2 vertical loops are extremely forceful and can cause anyone to gray out. The tunnel before the ride and in the loops is fantastic theming. Awesome first drop, and those corkscrews are equally as intense. It's not rough at all, it's more forceful and intense which may be a bit too much for the more faint of heart, which is why some don't like it. The corkscrews are perfectly smooth. The pacing is superb, because it does not slow down during the inversions, and the elements keep flying at the rider. Headbanging is never really an issue on roller coasters, because if you know how to properly ride a roller coaster you will have no issues. Advice for people who have experienced headbanging on this: make sure to keep your head back at all times, and only tilt your head in the direction the ride is moving. Improper riding techniques will result in you not liking this ride, but if you know how to ride a roller coaster, the speed, layout, and of course, the iconic Demon rock corkscrew make this one of the best, if not the best, Arrow loopers in the world. This is the best ride at the park even though it's almost 50, which is incredible.

First Drop Masterpiece Intensity Headbanging Too short
Jesus Christ. There is so much that can be said about it. I was scared just by reading about this. Videos don’t do it justice. The most unique coaster I have ever been on. You will never find anything like this anywhere in the world. We went at a time with only a 30 minute wait, which made it even more worth it. There are also issues, like the head banging (I got a smack on the head towards the end that was unavoidable), and it feels a bit too short. But the scariness of this ride rivals any other ride in the world. The first drop into a fireball, oh my lord. Insane intensity, and every element was full of wows. Completely disorienting and one of the most fun things I have done. Even with its issues, the pros make it the best ride at the park. Ride once a visit, but the best roller coaster in the world from my point of view.

Inversions Launch Pace Theming Capacity Harness
Literally only 12 can ride at a time, which creates gigantic wait times making this ride not worth it. The station literally is a paint and fabric, the worst themed station I’ve ever seen. Launch is good, inversions are excellent, duration is really good and the racing is more competitive than twisted colossus. However, harness was really uncomfortable and choked me at times. Not really worth the really high wait, but definitely ride once.

Nice surprise! Smoothness Layout Rattle Harness Dead spots
This is an interesting one. First of all, if you lay your head back throughout the ride you will get NO HEADBANDS AND THE RIDE WILL BE PERFECTLY SMOOTH FOR YOU. However, the harness can cause a bit of discomfort. The layout is amazing, it’s a classic coaster, and it goes pretty damn fast. However, the loops don’t really offer any intensity, and there are some dead spots. This shouldn’t be torn down in any respect, those talking about discomfort didn’t ride it properly. This just needs a fresh coat of paint and polish, and it’ll be a must do again.

Airtimes First Drop Fun Layout
Overall, a fantastic must ride. The first drop is the best on any wooden coaster I’ve ridden, and it’s perfectly smooth throughout. Zero G rolls are great and the lap bar helps with the intensity. Only problem is the racing aspect; I think they should have two different stations or a leaderboard systems for more competitiveness. Also, most of the layout besides the eye-catching spots were a bit middling, but overall some key elements make it incredible.

Airtimes First Drop Masterpiece
The first flying coaster I ever rode, but one hell of an experience. Super intense and it was our first ride of the day, so some insane views. But it’s one of the top rides at the park. Pretzel loop was absolutely fantastic, even though some people dislike it. Exceeded all expectations, a worthy 5/5
