My husband worked this attraction from Nov 98 to April 2000. When running at full capacity of 23 cars, usually 21-22 cars, we could move almost 1100 guests through the attraction an hour. Most of the breakdowns lasted less than ten minutes and it would not operate during rain. Although taking a lot of criticism, guests always wanted to ride it. Afterall, it was the fastest attraction in the park, beating Space Mountain by 1.3 MPH, until they added more speakers and the weight increased their speed. The track length was just under 5000 feet and the Michelin tires were replaced every two weeks on each vehicle. Unfortunately it could not maintain a monthly average of efficiency of 85%, which is required of all attractions. We believe they could have improved the electronics of the vehicles and cut the down times, but they apparently did not want to invest further in the attraction.
