This ride gets things started with a 211-foot drop at a 74° angle.  Being over 200 feet tall, the ride is classified as a hypercoaster.

As of 2020, fewer than 70 hypercoasters have been built, and six of them are defunct.  Nine of these coasters are shuttle coasters which some enthusiasts feel make them ineligible for the hypercoaster title. (For the record, five coasters are less than 200 feet tall but have a drop of over 200 feet due to terrain elevation changes, and those are included in these totals.)
