This coaster was originally silver when it was built in 1978, but it got painted brown in the 1980s. This is how the ride appeared in 1990. Today the track, the supports, and sometimes this small bit of water water, is colored green.
The end of the ride is built on lower terrain which really helps the train speed along the course. And check out the tunnel after the second loop! During the 2009 flood, this entire area was under water. The high water mark was almost half way up this loop!
