Tantrum is set to open for the 2018 season at Darien Lake. It's the first new coaster since MotoCoaster opened in 2008.

Darien Lake took to social media to post photos of the progress of the coaster's construction.

Darien Lake describes the new ride like this on their website:

Tantrum riders will embark on a 98-foot vertical lift at a 90-degree angle – straight up the coaster’s first hill. In a matter of seconds, upon reaching its apex, the train plummets into a 97-degree drop and pretzel inversion. Reaching speeds of 52 mph, the coaster snakes through the structure over a bunny hop, keeps riders wondering which way is up or down during an Immelman turn, and finishes with a tilted loop.
