The ride is located in the park’s China themed area, and intersects with the Dragon Khan roller coaster, crossing it several times. Due to the ride’s length, it extends up to the Polynesia area. The ride goes past a lake with fountains, and a pedestrian pathway.

Following the first drop, the track curves upwards into a 190 feet (58 m) airtime hill before dropping again and racing through a sweeping high-speed ‘&’ shape helix. Following this comes some small-size camelbacks and a big splash after a drop and another tunnel. The track ends with 2 more camelbacks and a 180 degree turn into the station.
