Backlot Stunt Coaster
Midway through the ride, the coaster comes to a complete stop for about twenty seconds to see a "show" happen around the track. At this point the helicopter rises up and "shoots" at the train. Bullets seem to cause explosions of flame from several locations. Bullet hits are simulated by air cannons in water barrels.
Sadly, the last time that I visited Kings Island, many of these special effects were not working.
