 Review of Cyclops Roller Coaster, The @ Mount Olympus Theme Park

My favorite coaster at Mt. Olympus, Cyclops is unique in the sense that it provides more forces and airtime than some coasters twice its size. It took me a few circuits to have the confidence to ride hands-up in the back row (buzz bars just make me nervous), but once I did, I was rewarded by many great trips on one of the pound-for-pound (length-for-length?) best wooden coasters I’ve ever been on. The airtime in the back row is phenomenal, with at least three moments (first drop, second drop, and ravine drop) of stand-up air. Rough but rarely uncomfortable, it pushes the limits without making you feel as though the coaster desires to kill you (something that I can’t always say about Gravity Group coasters). My favorite seat ended up being in the last row, right hand side, which I must have ridden in for at least half of my 13 rides over 2 days. Ultimately, this is a perfect example of how less can be more, and how a well-designed and placed coaster can do great things even when its statistics would suggest otherwise.
