As reported by Blooloop, The Fantawild group — which opened the park — collaborated with Vekoma Rides to recreate a fighter jet experience. Not only does the ride simulate what it’ll feel like to take off in a fighter jet, but it also simulates a “dogfight” where two jets battle in the sky.

Launching eight guests at just a little over 60 miles per hour in three seconds, these new ‘pilots’ experience five weightless moments, four inversions and the world’s first-ever rollover camelback. Another jet races alongside them, with several near-miss maneuvers.
