If you need or want to fill in some time and do some thing different this is the place to go. Its getting old and dated but it filled in time for us.

Love going on this roller coaster; I go every time I come to Vegas and it never gets old. Something happened while we were waiting in line, and we had to wait almost 30 minutes. There was not a long line, the line was just not moving. Very frustrating.

For $30 two can ride this ride unless you're staying at NYNY, then if you show your room keys it's two for one for $15.

We walked in right before the coaster opened and this proved to be a good plan from what we heard from others. The cost to ride just the coaster is $15, but you get your money's worth. I couldn't see from where I entered the building, but it does go upside down, corkscrews and drops and if you don't scream,... More

The roller coaster is an older attraction, but still a good thrill. It's pricey for one ride, so if you're an adventure seeker or looking to kill some time, go early and splurge on the all day pass. The all day pass is just a few bucks more and you can take advantage of day and night rides, both offering... More

We had a Vegas PAss and this ride was included. Must admit it was very rickety, and threw me around all over the place. Don't think its worth the $16 usual charge, good fun though.

Its been around for awhile, but still a gas! Ride it at night for that much more thrill!! Lines can be long on the weekend, but lines are long for everything during weekends in Vegas. Highly Recommended.

From the moment it left the station I could tell it was old. It was creaking all over the place and once we went down the steep drop it was rough sailing from there. It really knocks you around. If you get light headed easily, you probably should avoid. Also know you have to put all your stuff in lockers... More

$15 is a little steep especially if you have a big family. It is fun though! Just be prepared that it is a pretty rough ride. We went early in the day and line was not long yet. Went back later in the day and thenline was really long.

This is definitely an old roller coaster. Perfectly safe and definitely a 'to do' on my vegas list however I feel like I got whiplash from the lack of padding on the seats and suspension on the track! I love coasters but won't be going on this again until it is upgraded!
