This twisted impulse coaster is just plain fun! Steel Venom features a single train suspended from an overhead steel track. Using "Linear Induction Motors" the train is accelerated both forwards and backwards multiple times until it has enough momentum to rise up the forward spiraling and then the reverse straight vertical spikes. Riders will reach heights of up to 185-feet and experience speeds of up to 68 miles-per-hour. Beware there is a scary surprise on Steel Venom, but we won't spoil that here.
