It's fast, fun and furious! Premiered in May 1997, The Mind Eraser monster coaster is the only suspended looping coaster in New York State. Suspended from a steel track above in a shoulder harness, with legs and feet dangling, riders excite in 125 seconds of sheer exhilaration. They soar over 10 stories skyward, reaching speeds in excess of 60 mph, only to experience spine-tingling dives, spirals, rollovers and spins!
