*Go Fast Pass accepted here.

No one has actually seen it. No one knows where it came from or why it's here. We don’t know what the beast is but we do know what it is capable of. We know it hunts humans and is a master of stealth, for you will never see anything but shadows. We do know it’s big and we know it’s hungry.

As you are gliding along the wooden track, you can feel him climbing all around you. The structure will violently shake and rattle alerting riders that something is wrong. You can feel his breath on the back of your neck making all the hairs on your body stand on end. He will pounce behind the car and you can hear him scratch like nails on a chalkboard. Growling fills your ears as you are being rocked and rattled through the dark wooden tunnels. Riders are snatched from their seat without a trace to never be seen again.

Head our warning: Most riders do make it through, but the next guests in distress could very well be you.
