HYDRA The Revenge

The lift hill is 95 feet tall, but the first drop is 105 feet thanks to this boulder-filled ravine.

The two holes visible in the track's spine shown on the upper left were placed there in case trim brakes were needed to moderate the train's speed during the second half of the ride, but it was found during testing that speeds were acceptable and brakes were never installed here.
