It features several large turns, with a long inline twist, and a finale turn over the lake. The ride also features a different seating arrangement to other Intamin Accelerator coasters, where the seats are attached to the side of the barrel themed trains. This gives the riders the ultimate floorless feeling, with no track beneath or above them, and no floor beneath them either. This arrangement has now been commonly dubbed as 'wing walker' trains.
Furius Baco is 850 meters long, lasts 55 seconds and cost 15 million euros to build.
Since opening, the ride has experienced some technical problems, and as a result has had to shut down for varying periods of time during opening hours.
