MY VERDICT

This rollercoaster throws you around A LOT. It goes upside-down eight times (if you haven’t read the facts) so you feel dizzy at the end. I think the best part is the first and biggest (vertical) loop. The other types of loop are a diving loop, a zero-G roll and a cobra roll, then there are two interlocking corkscrews.
