    The rides were shut because they were broken I reported it to the website Viator and they still have not refunded my money. Highly upsetting.

    Roller coaster was really nice. Tickets from Viator were not found/valid by the entrance guy, he was nice and let us through nevertheless
    Such a great thrill
    Rebecca_B, May 2023
    I've been to Vegas on numerous occasions, but never got around to riding the coaster. Girls trip this time around and the coaster was definitely on the to do list. Awesome and exciting
    Best value on the strip.
    Donnie_H, Apr 2023
    Best value on the Strip. Most bang for your buck by far !! We enjoyed this more thsn about anything else we did in our six day stay in Vegas.
    Kids blown away
    Luis_M, Apr 2023

    Fraudulent seller!
    Wendy_A, Dec 2022
    It was closed! We deserve a refund and I will be contacting American Express. You sold tickets while it was closed!
    Was not able to ride or get a refund
    Carolina_F, Dec 2022
    Got charged by Viator for a ride that is closed for maintenance. Would like a refund for a ride we could not take
    Worth the Experience
    staceyspears1, Oct 2022
    As a roller coaster fanatic, this coaster is a definite must-do at least once! Very rough, but that was expected. I would definitely do it again!
    No refund
    Nicole_B, Oct 2022
    I wasn’t able to get on. Waste of money and didn’t get a refund. I was looking forward to it my whole trip but got sick.
    Great roller coaster,...
    Laurie_H, Sept 2022
    Great roller coaster, great views, flips and turns amazingly high for a roller coaster. Taller that the Statue of Liberty. Try it you won’t be disappointed.
    Looks can be deceiving
    Jeremy_T, Sept 2022
    The thing that everyone tells you to do, because it’s a thing to do. Not a Six Flags/Cedar Point ride. Wanted it to be much faster, but I’m a ride junkie. Overall ride is average at best completely overpriced for what it is but I checked it off the list
    Make sure you have a ticket with a QR code on it
    Cari_A, Aug 2022
    We presented our tickets previously paid for & then coaster people would not accept our tickets and told us they were bogus. They finally did let us on the ride and said they had never heard of Viator and asked to keep our tickets so they could investigate. But it was very stressful
    Thrill seekers delight!
    James_M, July 2022
    Best ride ever in the front row. Filled with lots of twist and turns. I went twice in the same day, but don’t wear a hat of any kind while in the front row you will lose it!
    A fun ride next to the Vegas Strip!
    Joe_M, July 2022
    No line! Loves that aspect! The coaster ride was a blast! My daughter and I are adrenaline junkies! This ride helped scratch that itch!
    Jerky and short
    Phil_H, May 2022
    Big first drop was fun but after was jerkier than expected. What part that was fun was not a very long.
    April_J, May 2022
    I kept my eyes closed 99.9 % of the time and screamed my face off! Absolutely terrified! Great tho!!
    Loved It!!
    aisha_s, May 2022
    Fast lines and VERY scary ride, kinda shook my neck but nothing major, overall a great ride and I will definitely be back!!
    Rafael_P, May 2022
