  • This ride shoots you straight into the sky and from the perspective on the ride, the only thing you can see is sky and the ground in which it appears you are going to plummet down to. I've been going on this ride for 20 years and it never gets boring. If you want to ride it and you don't have the strongest stomach, I suggest doing so before you fill your belly with a large meal
  • The big shot is absolutely amazing! Definitely go at night . a must if local. The darkness makes it even more scary absolute Delight not a big fan of the stratosphere but I'll just big shot three stars just because everything else there is not that great
