The Black Belt of Roller Coasters!
A ninja is not just strong, precise, and a master of technique, but the Ninja is also a master of stealth. He sneaks up on you, delivers his punches and kicks, and is gone before you even look up. Slicing through the air at 55 miles per hour over 2,430 feet of track, you’re about to learn the way of the black belt!
Riding Ninja is like an education in the art of looping. You’ll take on two “butterfly” loops, during which you’ll twist once on the way up, and once on the way back down the inversion. And how many trained assassins do you know who could, in one maneuver, fly through a half loop and a half corkscrew, then back out at a nearly vertical angle? There’s only one martial artist that comes to mind. At Ninja school they called that trick a “sidewinder” loop.
Including a sanity-warping double corkscrew, there are a total of five inversions.
Ninja employs its famous stealth as it takes the low banking curves so close to the ground you’d swear you never saw a roller coaster race by… unless of course, you were riding it.
Deep beneath Ninja is a secret laboratory.
In this laboratory, mad scientists create new roller coasters and other attractions using toothpick models and thousands of timid white mice.
Until recently these mice have enjoyed their role in growing theme park technology — most of the advancements that have taken place over the last 20 years are due to their effort. However, things changed just last week after an experiment involving some sponge cake and a frialator went horribly, horribly wrong.
One by one mice disappeared from their cages. The locks on the cages appeared to have been gnawed through from the outside. It’s as if these useful, but simple, creatures have joined together to free each other.
Now growing bands of rodents crawl through the vents, emerging at night below the tracks of Ninja. They roam the queuing areas in search of unsuspecting individuals…seeking to satiate their unquenchable taste for human flesh.
Once their prey is cornered, they flow over the victim’s body and begin to feed. Screams don’t deter them–it just makes them angrier. Blood only increases their ferocity. Bones are picked clean and, in an instant, keen, high-pitched rat cries pierce the night’s cover.
No Ninja ride vehicle is safe. Red cars are especially vulnerable. Noise and smell attract these former scientific “sacrifices” to their potential prey. Speed, height, and constant movement are the only methods of avoidance. If one rat is spotted, the other thousand are sure to be right behind.

What Our Guests Say
"The Ninja is my family'sf favorite ride. My 7 year old son said "DAD WE HAVE TO RIDE THE NINJA 10 TIMES" as soon as we enter the park!"
"The Ninja is, in my opinion, the coolest upside down roller coaster. Every loop is more exciting than the next. I love that in the middle of the ride you slow down and have a sense that its over! But not yet the Ninja has a few more surprises in store!"
"You don't see what's coming... then it hits you... loops, corkscrews and speed."
"The Ninja was just as fun as I remembered! Loved the corkscrew turns!"
"The Ninja is great because of the various loops and unexpected twists. The double barrel roll near the end of the ride is one of the unique experiences in the park."
