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. Unfortunately, the reopening was short lived and Cliff Hanger has been standing-but-not-operating since 2010.
June 30, 2009 – Cliff Hanger reopens with a new train from Rotational Motion as part of the renovation.
2007 – Renamed Cliff Hanger and undergoes a major renovation.
2003 - 2006 – Ghost Town in the Sky was shut, so the Red Devil did not operate.
2002 – The original Hopkins designed train is retired and the roller coaster is standing-but-not-operating (SBNO).
Inversion: Vertical Loop
Train has five cars with two rows each, seating two abreast per row.
