The coaster used to do two circles around the Maliboomer, a stock "Space Shot" ride from S&S Sports.  The ride differed from other similar rides because each over-the-shoulder restraint had a plexiglass shield that was placed in front of each rider's face.  This odd solution was in place to minimize the noise of riders' screams, a strange result of the park being so close to residential dwellings.   The Maliboomer was made up to resemble the old test-of-strength games where people would use a hammer to see how hard they could hit a target.  The ride was built in 2001 when the park opened and was removed in 2010.
