Bite-Sized Review: Whizzer is very unique and a perfect starting coaster for people who might be afraid of them. The spiral lift hill is super fun to ride up, even if it isn’t really an element that impacts the ride that much. There are also a lot of crazy banked turns on the ride that get riders incredibly close to the ground. These sort of act as near-miss elements, which are definitely the most interesting part of the ride.
ATTRACTION GRADE: 6/10
