Great Bear

Great Bear is an exhilarating, looping, inverted steel coaster. You ride below the track, not above it. The ride starts by lifting you 90 feet off the ground. It will then speed up to 61 miles per hour as it rips down the tracks, through a loop then into an immelman - a loop that turns you out at the top and then drops you like a falling star! Then you will cross the sooperdooperLooper, and make an "S" turn before returning to earth.
