With all these great compact coasters KK now has, I'm beginning to think that the strict height restriction they work under is somewhat of a blessing in disguise!

This is just a perfect addition for this park. A coaster that's an absolute blast for every demographic that has an ultra-low height requirement when you're competing with Holiday World to attract families is brilliant.

It's a quick ride but I think everyone will be happy. 3 rides just wasn't enough for me.

Great report! I expected nothing less from this coaster considering just how great Gravity Group's other smaller wood coasters are. They're airtime machines!

Maybe they were referring to the height? Which the coaster only hits 47ft.

It feels faster than 35, which is a good thing because this is indeed a very nice coaster for its size. Lots of airtime pops on the coaster (Especially the backseat), and a wonderful middle-ground family/starter coaster for sure.

Earned my Wings last night. Like everyone is saying it's a solid coaster, with some great airtime. Love how it looks along the back of Hurricane Bay. Can't wait to get back tomorrow, to ride some more, on opening day.
