Flight Deck Intensity

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!
