Blast through the air in a blur of red and gold!

Feel like "The Fastest Man Alive"  on THE FLASH: Vertical Velocity as you bolt out of the station and get to 60 miles per hour in mere seconds.

First you will blast forward through corkscrew inversions up the twisted tower . Then you’ll race backwards, back through the station on your way to the 150-foot-tall vertical tower. When you are barreling through the center at top speed and coming up that vertical tower, you’re moving so fast you basically feel like you are simply about to blast off into outer space. Take a half-breath before you plummet back down that 15 story drop. It’s like throwing a totally vertical free fall into the middle of a roller coaster.

This spiraling, one-of-a-kind suspended coaster, uses an advanced electromanget propulsion system technology that allows this coaster to mimic what it's like to have the Speed Force.
