ABOUT THE PROJECT
This state-of-the-art ride incorporates 21st century technology with a metal roller coaster that glows green at night. Riders are launched within a 32,000 pound ride vehicle rather than gravity propelled through a 30 degree inclined tunnel where 220 individual motors and digital motor controllers that are powered by three dc motor generator sets with flywheels produce a 9 megawatt -burst to shoot the car from 0 to 40 mph in 1.8 seconds. In the course of two minutes and 15 seconds, the car runs through seven rollovers and a plunge into two subterranean enclosures.
