Built by Gravity Logic. Bermed roller coaster with small tabletops in between switchbacks. Fast downhill and really sharp berms. This upper sections has some steep turns that tend to get really bumpy. This top section is probably the most difficult part before you get to the meadow.

Pretty dusty, but still able to follow a train. Better than down below on the latter half of Tidal!

 Dear everyone that rides this trail: the braking bumps are getting ridiculous. Just trust the berms!
