Slope Shooter

This aerial view shows most of Slope Shooter's track.  Note how there are no steep descents anywhere on the ride.  This is due to the limitations of "Side Friction" coasters where the car isn't locked onto the track.  It is a little hard to appreciate the slope of the hill, but this part of the zoo does have a large change in elevation.  Just look at the stairs located to the right of the lift hill.
