It was announced in November, and now after just over 7 months it's here! The Tantrum is opening at Darien Lake.

Seven months in the making and Friday June 1 is the big day!

The coaster takes riders straight up at a 90-degree angle to the top of the first drop. And this drop isn't your usual steep coaster fall. No, it's much much steeper!

The track actually bends inward on itself to drop you at a 97-degree angle before twists and curves take you going upside-down, sideways, and to speeds over 50 mph.

The best part? I'll be there for the 4th of July and will be riding this as much as possible so if you can't make it to Darien Lake before then, I'll have a nice review for you when I get back!

In the mean time, take a virtual ride on The Tantrum:
