This is the world's only roller coaster that is literally built on the side of a mountain. Cliff Hanger is unique because the station is actually built higher than the loop. Riders experience the vertical loop within 7 seconds of beginning the ride. Cliff Hanger was originally named Red Devil, but when Ghost Town in the Sky announced they would re-open, fans were given the chance to rename the roller coaster in a contest. Cliff Hanger is expected to return to operation in 2008.
