The Exterminator - Ride Facts

Dark Ride or Roller Coaster? It's both! The Exterminator is a high-speed roller coaster in the dark! But that's not the only twist. The individual cars spin as they travel the twisting, turning track. Once inside the car, the rider in essence becomes the rat and travels through underground utilities and sewers to escape the enemy...Exterminators. Hairpin turns, dark & intimidating surroundings, spinning...riders can never quite be sure what's next.
