Try to wrap your mind around the startling sight of a stunning bright red nest of rail towering in the sky. You’re about to strap into this steel inverted looping coaster, suspended from the track over your head, with your feet just dangling in the air below you. Then try to exhibit some mental control as you climb up a gnarly tangle of crimson track so twisted you won’t believe they can even get a roller coaster to run on it.
Now that your body is fully committed, your brain isn’t going to be much use to you, so you might as well turn it off and just hang on as you haul up to the top of the first 11 story hill.
Right away you will plummet down a merciless 90 foot curve. Next is the heartline loop – a startling inversion in the shape of a heart. Your brain and stomach will scramble as you flip head over heels, twice, in two seconds, at a pulse-pounding 55 miles per hour.
At a loss for words yet? How would you describe the sensation of flying through a half loop and a half corkscrew and pulsing out at a nearly vertical angle? We call it a “sidewinder.” But don’t worry your poor brain with that, because you’ll need all your focus to get through a seemingly endless pair of 360 degree rolls.
You seriously will have no idea which way is up and which way is down through this section of the track. Now what was it you were thinking?
