El Toro's 176-foot drop is an amazing 76-degree plunge that provides airtime to all riders, but especially those in the back of the train.
When the ride opened, this was the steepest drop on any wooden roller coaster. In 2008, it was beaten by another Intamin "prefab" coaster. T Express in Everland in South Korea topped it with a 77-degree drop.
