Fodor's Review

While waiting in line for this incredible coaster, you're ushered past 10 aquariums with more than 3,000 creatures, including 100 species of fish, graceful rays, sea dragons, and sea horses. This alone is fascinating, but the gentle encounter is followed by the sight of row after row of guests being locked down, strapped in, and firmly secured for... what's about to happen. You're suspended horizontally (face down!) beneath a 12-foot, stingray-shaped, roller-coaster car,

which leaps out of the station, attaining speeds of up to 56 mph on a ½-mile race of loops as it spins around and above the aquarium. At times you are so close to the water that the coaster's wings skim the surface. There are four inversions and a drop of more than 10 stories. Halfway through, the ride slows down a bit, and you may think it's over—but it's not. There are more twists and spins ahead. Kids will love the aquarium entrance; daring older children and adults will love the thrill of the ride. Avoid this ride if you're pregnant; suffer from motion sickness; or have back, neck, or heart problems. For people with disabilities: You must transfer to the ride seat, properly use the ride restraint, and be able to grip harness with one hand. Come first thing or late in the day, or use a Quick Queue pass (extra fee required).
