Car runs on steel girder tracks. The car is accelerated out of the station, along level track using Linear Induction Motors. It then coasts up the vertical section of track, and free-falls backwards down the track to return to the station.

In real life
- There are currently 2 operating reverse freefall roller coasters in the world. One is a dueling version in Six Flags Magic Mountain (featured in RCT2), and the other one is in Dreamworld Australia. Until 16 January 2011, none of the rides had the trains run backwards, as they returned facing forward. These where manufactured by Intamin AG.
