Sitting proudly at the top of Samurai Summit, you’ll see a fierce beast made of bright red, orange, and yellow steel. This is no ordinary coaster…this is a dragon.
Tatsu is a flying roller coaster with an utterly unique way to ride—face down. This mad twist puts you in a one-on-one stare-down with planet Earth, as you fly at speeds up to 62 miles per hour. The structure itself is 170 feet tall, but when combined with the height of the mountain it’s sitting on, you’re in for a 263-foot elevation change over the course of the journey.
You will truly feel like a dragon in flight as you face the gauntlet—3,602 feet of steel track twisted into scream-inducing heights and dips. By the time you reach the top of the first hill, you might have some idea of what you’re in for. Face down, with the track behind you, there is nothing between you and the ground! You won’t even be able to see the track at all, just the dirt and sky racing past you in a dizzying blur.
You’ll corkscrew down 104 feet, zooming around the track at top speeds and right into 96 feet of zero G roll. If you don’t feel like you’re flying yet, just add an 80-foot tall horseshoe. Then get ready to roll because the 124-foot tall pretzel loop with your name on it is simply unreal. As if that wasn’t enough, you’ll whip around a 77-foot-tall in-line twist, completing your soaring journey over the park, before Tatsu is done with you and ready to breathe fire on the next batch of dragon slayers.
