Montezooma's is a shuttle loop coaster which means that you get launched forward and eventually go backwards through the course.   Montezooma launches you down a straightaway through a loop, up a hill and back through the loop and the station and up a final hill.

Both Montezooma's Revenge and Six Flag Astroworld's Greezed Lightening use a flywheel launch but only Montezooma's keeps the brakes off as you fly backwards through the station so you head all the way up the back hill for some monster airtime.

Ok, as many of you know I have not been that big of a flat ride fan because I normally get sick on them but thanks to some medication from my doctor (not Dramamine) I have been able to enjoy rides like the Tampico Tumbler.

This ride was so much fun.  You get great laterals but you also get truck loads of airtime while riding it.  So far there are only two copies of this ride anywhere (one at Knott's and one at Camp Snoopy in the Mall of America) but I'd love to see more of these fun rides all over the world.  This is one of those rides you can not help giggling your way through.  I so want one of these at Holiday World (wink wink).
