An inverted looping roller coaster
Originally opening as Top Gun (yep, named after the Tom Cruise movie), Flight Deck has been thrilling guests for more than 25 years! With a reputation as one of the most underrated coasters in the Bay Area, this ride features 3 inversions and an intense finale over the water.
Flight Deck gets a 5/5 intensity. Although it doesn't look tall, Flight Deck features incredibly intense inversions and maneuvers. Like most early B&M inverted coasters, Flight Deck features high positive and lateral G forces throughout its course. For this reason, Flight Deck is recommended for only the most seasoned thrill seekers!
