It is an extended standard model, with additional helix, of the Suspended Looping Coaster manufactured by Vekoma. It is an intense but rough coaster, and 4.5G's are experienced during the sidewinder inversion. A model Panavia Tornado fighter jet is seen on top of the station for decorative purposes.
