The Calypso is a flat ride. It is average speed, fun, rerideable, it has a large capacity, and a long duration.

When I go to parks, I am a big fan of good old-fashioned flat rides as much as I am the newer thrillers. And Calypso is exactly that - a good solid flat ride that has been around awhile but still delivers a quality ride experience. Calypso looks great, especially at night with the many lights that adorn it. The ride offers a unique take on the typical scrambler-type ride, as cars sitting on a permanently tilted turntable spin one way, while the whole turntable spins the opposite way. The resulting ride is full of spinning fun, with just the right amount of speed to give a good thrill while entertaining the whole family. The only real knock I can give Calypso is that its cycle is disappointingly short. Take a ride aboard Calypso, and you will be happy with the exciting ride that follows, filled with laugh-inducing fun on this good flat ride overall.

Calypso was fun, but it seemed a bit dated. The rides speed has gotten slower over the years, but it still can provide a dizzying and unique ride. This one does have a pretty short cycle though.

A decent and historic flat ride that was run at a resonable spped. I appreciated that they played themed music.

An okay ride. It is a little different from other scramble rides being that it tilts, but still a little boring.

Located in a place that Ive never seen with anyone in it, Calypso is a decent ride, but nothing mindblowing. A good family flat ride, but if youve ridden one, youve ridden them all - and this one is no different.

Its a neat sensation with it being tilted. Not the greatest ride, but because of it being a classic ride, I give it a 7

This has got to be the most boring flat ride Ive ever been on. It was a merely a "tilted" scrambler. I really hope Cedar Point gets some high-tech, new flats over the next couple of years. I wouldnt mind seeing Calypso go. The only good thing is that the ride ops gave us 2 cycles. Too bad the ride wasnt worth it.

It was ok, I dont know if Id call it a 9 or a 10 considering the rest of the rides around it. Its a nicely maintained carny ride that isnt all that bad.
