                  Wild Rating--

When I entered the line for the corkscrew, I was expecting the worst.  I've ridden Vekoma built coasters before, and they were always rough.  Add to that the fact that this coaster is a decade old, and I was looking forward to a monster headache.  Once on the ride, I was pleasantly surprised.  The ride was one of the smoothest Vekoma coasters I've ridden, and unlike a lot of corkscrew coasters, it was a fairly long ride.

The ride begins with a noisy lifthill.  Once at the top, it goes down a short, turning drop before the big hill.  It drops down and pops up before hitting a corner and going into 2 back to back corkscrews.  After that it turnsaround and goes over a couple of bunny hops.  From there it enters an awesome double helix before going through some head choppers and around a final corner into the brakes.
