The train normally makes two circuits for each ride, although on quiet days it has been known to run for three or more circuits. The ride runs alongside the Congo River Rapids, with which it shares a tunnel section. Passengers must be at least 0.9m tall to ride with an adult, and over 1.1m tall to ride separately.

As of 2013 it is officially the park's oldest roller coaster, after The Beastie was removed prior to the 2013 season.
