In a park with one of the finest collections of roller coasters anywhere Tigris leaves us wondering why they build this? Unfortunately, there is little to say about a roller coaster that's a gimmick. Tigris is one of Premier Rides Sky Rocket II models that have been littered across many parks. While the footprint for this ride is compact the ride experience is not worth waiting more than 5 minutes for. A single train navigates a track consisting of basically two large loops, one non-inverting, over the station. LSM's launch the train forwards, then boosts them backwards and then boosts them forwards again where it finally has enough momentum to complete the circuit. The trains are cramped due to their poor design and feature the ridiculous restraints called "comfort collars"!
