Joker's Revenge

What is this coaster? It seems short and only goes backwards?!? Can someone describe the ride to me in detail or point me to some pics. I did a search on the site and came up with minimum. 37 of y'all have it in your track record so could someone teach me please
T.I.A.

One interesting thing about that ride is that it's the only coaster to negotiate a corkscrew in reverse. It's made by Vekoma, a 75 foot drop pushes it through 3 inversions over slightly less than 2000 feet. Interesting queue...

Yeah, the ride wasn't TOO cool, it was just fun. The best part was the backwards corkscrew. That was interesting.

I was most surprised by the fact that the ride doesn't beat your head around.

The ride was quite smooth with very little head banging. The "funhouse" station was cool as well.

I can't tell from the pictures, Is it a backwards coaster?

Yeah, It got a lot of publicity here a while back when one of the members had a great deal of respect for that ride.

So is this ride basically like an Arrow looper only the trains run backwards the entire circuit?

This ride was purchased before Fiesta Texas became a Six Flags. SF decided to run the trains backward as an extra thrill. Not a bad Idea if you ask me.
