This attraction was removed after the 2007 season. HyperSonic XLC was the world's first compressed-air launch coaster. Unique acceleration, zero gravity airtime and free-fall sensations combined to make HyperSonic a one-of-a-kind roller coaster experience. Pneumatic tires and specially designed shock absorbers provided an unbelievably smooth ride.
