This wooden coaster designed by Don Rosser originally operated as the Florida Hurricane at Boardwalk & Baseball in Haines City, Florida. In January 1990, the coaster was sold for $10,000 and relocated to Magic Springs & Crystal Falls. This 3,500 foot long wooden roller coaster has an "out and back" layout that starts with 92-foot first drop from a ten story lift hill. Two trains travel the circuit while reaching speeds of up to 50 mph.
