Fodor's Review

Looking like an endless strand of spaghetti, this half-mile-plus coaster loops, twists, dives, and winds above and through Production Central. After you're locked into your seat, you'll select your personal soundtrack (choose from heavy metal, techno, country, rap, and pop) to accompany the video (starring you) that's shot as you scream your way along. And you will scream! It all starts as you're hauled nearly 17 stories straight up before you drop nearly 17 stories straight down before being lifted again into a towering loop and released into what seems like a never-ending series of twists, curves, sideways slings, and snap rolls at speeds up to 65 mph. By the time you return to the station, you might be woozy and a little spent – but you might spend a little more: the video with the soundtrack you selected is available for purchase. Off-season, the line never seems too bad. In season, consider using a Universal Express pass. The ride isn't suitable for expectant mothers;

anyone with neck, back, or heart problems; or people with a fear of heights. For people with disabilities: This does include closed-captioning, and guests using wheelchairs must transfer to a ride vehicle. Come early or late or choose the single-rider line—and be sure to stow loose items in the available lockers.
