    The trains that the riders are seated are the Millennium Flyer trains” which have 12 cars per train.

The slim and stream lined design allows the passengers to fly through tight areas at high speed!

    Before the announcement of the new ride there were teasers put out by the Worlds of Fun theme park. The teasers they released included a mysteriously large storage crate at the front of the park. This crate was “delivered” by the “International Wildlife Organization” or the “IWO”. After this was announced there were more details of this strange delivery being released on the theme parks blog, this started to become a regular occurrence as the IWO storyline continued. The tease was finally over on September 1st, 2008 when the park released the information of the new roller coaster that was on the way!
