Quick little adrenaline rush, and not such a bad view to go with it. No screams but still definitely lots of fun

What an amazing experience. The two staff members were excellent and very helpful. We had to queue for a while but worth it to watch other riders faces and reactions. It was a great experience and not as scary as I was anticipating.
