There's a fair bit of competition at Thorpe
Park as to what deserves to be called the park's signature coaster.
Overall though in terms of both ride ranking and iconic status I'd
have to give it to this one.
Layout wise it's very simplistic. It sees you launching down a long
strait , at the end of which the track veers up a steep vertical
spike. At the top you twist 90 degrees to the left and go over a
hill, where you head back down, where you traverse over a second
much smaller hill before you hit the brakes.
The iconic status is in the most part thanks to the height of the
ride. At 205 foot tall it's a major landmark from within the park,
and the first thing your likely to see when approaching Thorpe Park.
It's a shame it doesn't hold up quite as well close up. A nice job
has been made in giving the station a 50's hot rod racing theme, but
there's a lot of empty paved space around the ride, that with the
addition of some more theming and an extra ride or two could be
turned in to a nice themed area.
