A white knuckle ghost ride. This is essentially a roller coater in the dark. The position of the train triggers various micro switches and trip beams along the way to provide impetuous for the effect cues.

As the train enters the darkness the tracks are highlighted by electroluminescent strip revealing a network loops in the distance. As the train climbs the first ramp the strips fade to zero leaving complete darkness as the train reaches the apex. As the train begins to accelerate over the first peak a loud explosion is heard and blinding strobe strikes. The train hits a water trough and green moving beams break through falling chilled fog as it starts to climb again. As it reaches the top of this climb there is a structural creaking noise and a vibration is felt through the train. The train now accelerates backwards as if out of control. When the train stops abruptly in the dip low level lighting reveal water gushing on all sides of the train. The train now descends through an acrylic tunnel under the water. As it passes through the tunnel sharks and leviathan like creatures attack the tunnel accompanied by the train shaking and loud echoing noises. The train then ascends a spiral track while being attacked by flying creatures as the walls are cracked and apparently lava filled. Again shaking can be felt. Finally the top of the spiral is reached the heat of an out venting flame can be seen and felt and the train accelerates very fast and passes through a cork screw during strobing and chilled fog and moving beams. To the finish.
