Ninja, Six Flags St. Louis - Review

Ninja - Review

Six Flags St. Louis

Ride Facts and Info

A Vekoma Steel Looper, with four inversions: a Vertical Loop, a Clothoid Loop (Half Loop and Corkscrew), and a double Corkscrew.


Ride Layout

The ride is 110 feet high, and features a right-hand turnaround after the lift hill. The first drop leads into the Vertical Loop, which is immediately followed the Clothoid Loop. The drop is not very big, so the following inversions are not too intense. Leading out of the Clothoid Loop, the train takes a small drop under the lift, just inches below the chain; this is total decapitation I swear! The train then navigates a very tight and uncomfortable 270-degree turn before hitting the mid-course brakes.

The train then takes a small drop leading into a right-hand turnaround and another drop, before entering the double Corkscrew; this is where the headbanging worsens. A right-hand banked turn then follows, before a ground level left-hand helix that leads up onto the brake run.


Ride Evaluation

The ride starts off okay, but the headbanging gets progressively worse, it's also uncomfortable on the shoulders if you are tall.
