This ride is nearly 50 feet tall and 1,340 feet long.  It has an operating capacity of about 1,000 riders an hour.  The coaster has the capability to operate with eight 4-passenger cars at one time.

When I rode Ricochet, several trim brakes were used during the ride.  Close to the end of the course, one brake brought every car to nearly a complete stop.   This is a shame because the ride is not at all interesting when the cars travel very slowly.
