The ride is a bobsleigh type ride. Carts are conveyed uphill from a bottom station loading area by a surface ropeway system. Carts then roll downhill from the top station (by gravity) over a smooth flume shaped stainless steel track with multiple corners. The cart accommodates one or two passengers (passengers can sit behind each other) and is controlled by a handbrake located between the rider's legs. Pulling the handbrake handle causes the cart to stop; pushing of the handle causes the brakes to release, allowing the cart to accelerate.

Rider’s hand was caught between the cart they were riding and the track (flume) system.
