This coaster originally opened as Top Gun - The Jet Coaster.  Built by Bolliger and Mabillard in 1999, this ride became the fourth Top Gun coaster in the Paramount Parks chain.   Top Gun at Paramount's Kings Island, Top Gun at Paramount's Great America, and Top Gun at Paramount's Canada's Wonderland were the first three to open.  Despite sharing the same name, all four coasters are unique.  This ride, and the other three, changed names when all four parks dropped the Paramount name in 2007.
