    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

    Got charged by Viator for a ride that is closed for maintenance. Would like a refund for a ride we could not take

    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

    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,...

    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

    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!

    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, Jul 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!!

    Rafael_P, May 2022
    Very nice ride for my vacations. My next time in Las Vegas I want another ride. I recommended …………..
    Sold me a time when they were closed!!
    Margo_V, May 2022
    This website let me book a time, 10pm and then upon arriving at this time. The rollercoaster was closed! And this website doesn’t allow refunds. So I’m out 50 dollars because I left that next morning and couldn’t come back. Don’t bother with this place.
    Terrible experience
    Brandon_G, May 2022
    Bought tickets the night before for our last night and went to enjoy the ride, when we get their they shut down the ride for winds and they wouldn't give us a refund. As much money as you guys are already making off these people but you won't give money back for a canceled ride. Gross
    Worth a visit if you like roller coaster rides
    Mark_T, Apr 2022
    Rolling back the years since I last did a roller coaster ride. Definitely worth the money for the thrill ride as it doesn't disappoint.
