Tatsu is 170 feet tall and 3,602 feet long and features a 111-foot drop. It is the world's tallest and fastest flying coaster. It was the longest flying coaster until March 2016 when the Flying Dinosaur opened at Universal Studios Japan. That ride is just a little less than 90 feet longer than Tatsu.
This flying coaster has three 32-passenger trains. A large lap bar, a slightly flexible over-the-shoulder restraint, and ankle restraints help keep each rider safely secure in the train. Two rigid black bars link the orange lap bars to the train. These provide a nice handhold for riders.
