One track operates with red trains, while the other track has blue trains on it. Each track is 3,935 feet long. In the ride's first 30 years, Gemini completed over 3.5 million circuits. With that amount of rides, the trains have traveled the distance equal to 105 times around the world, or more than five round trips to the moon! The two tracks are parallel during the entire ride except the tracks diverge in separate 360° turns right before the trains return to the station. Those turns are very tight turns and happen close to ground level. It is a nice finish to the ride.
Gemini cost $3.2 million when it was built. That is equivalent of $11.5 million today.
