Flight Deck

California's Great America

Seated on trains suspended from the overhead inverted steel track, Flight Deck takes you on a ride designed to resemble a fighter jet. Here you'll experience a nine-story drop into a vertical loop, a weightless zero-G roll over the entrance and a thrilling finale consisting of a corkscrew inversion into high-speed helix while flying over a body of water at California's Great America.
