Seated in trains suspended from the overhead, inverted steel track Flight Deck takes you on a wild 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 ride's 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.
