General info: 

Some say it´s the best roller coaster in Vegas, some say it´s too rough. One things for sure, there is speed. The Roller Coaster right in front of the NYNY Hotel&Casino takes you to over 200 feet and makes you twist and turn ways you never imagined.

The view from the top is great but before you know it, you're plummeting down a 144-foot drop. The intensity continues with loops, corkscrews and hills, speeding up to 67 miles per hour.

The combination of high speed and inversions make this roller coaster a bit rough on you neck. However it is fun and energizing so if you can take a bit of shaking, it is worth it.
