A very mediocre ride. The first drop is nothing special and the bunny hop is kinda painful, but the loop is fun and so are the corkscrews. Its pretty rough but considering its age, it isnt terrible. Gets an extra point for looking very nice over the midway.

I did not find this ride to be that rough. Actually, it was much better than I thought. The first and second drops gave some good airtime in the back. Nothing great but nothing bad here.

The most surprising part of my ride was the fact that it was pain free. I have heard so many people talk about how painful it is, but yet I was able to enjoy the ride without worrying about hurting myself. There isnt much to say for the ride, but it was better than I had imagined.

An old and EXTREAMLY jerky ride with good airtime. Dont get me wrong I ride Corkscrew everytime I go to Cedar Point but it could use some improvements. Your head bangs against the harness if your shorter (Im 57). Needless to say I spend the wait removing any jewlery that could cause me to bleed from head which includes 5 sets of earrings. Dont over look this ride at all, its great. But take precautions before riding it, and remove earrings in the cartlige of your ear, it will save you some headaches, I have learned the hard way!

RESPECT YOUR ELDERS! come on people. this ride is a classic, with a fantastic location, and is a quality ride. granted, shes no Demon, but heck, the little bunny hill gave some airtime, and the rest of the ride is fun as can be. This is a classic that gains much respect from me. Quality ride.

I really do not like this ride. My current trip to Cedar Point confirms this. First, the safety measures prove to be more of a danger than anything else. Witness the modifications to K-woods Phantom - the horsecollars are not necessary. Being of adult proportions the cars are a tight fit. The headrest dug into my back and wedged me tight against the OTSR. Ouch! There is no air, no fun and no way I will go on this again. Coaster technology has come along way. I think this coaster should be replaced with another great idea.

Good points? No wait and it is fairly short which limits the pain. It does look good though spiraling down the midway.

AIRTIME!!! I actually got some really nice and strong AIRTIME on an Arrow Corkscrew!! That just blew me away. Ride the back seat and just love the drops and then the loop ... it was just a wild and exciting surprise. The corkscrews over the people in the midway add some nice suspense and fun to an other wise common looking ride. Full points to CP for turning the ordinary into anything but with this ride.

This ride is pretty cool. But not such a rush like the Mantis or the Raptor. I like how it goes over the Midway.

This ride kinda defines an arrow looper. It has a great location and no lines. Not as good as orient express or vortex though. No Wait Fun Ride.

Corkscrew has a great location as well as capacity, running 3 trains on a short circuit. The ride itself is smooth, especially for an Arrow and delievers a nice pop of air on the hill before the loop. A good starter coaster for the youngsters.
