A well named coaster with a nicely themed queue. The coaster resembles a real anaconda, a big twisting piece of metal over a murky lake that then dives into the lake.

Being over the water the whole time really makes this ride different. In the front you can anticipate the jarring and if you keep you head back you can minimize the head banging. In the back its harder to minimize the banging. I dont know if there is an official term for the swooping turns prior to the double corkscrew, but I found that part the roughest.

I found this ride to be less rough than most of its kind, but still not exactly comfortable. I guess it depends on random things like height, sensitivity, and so forth, because my husband didnt find it uncomfortable at all. In my experience, the lines are short and the ride ops are very efficient, which makes it hard to resist riding it at least once each time I visit the park.

An interesting Arrow looper that is surprisingly smoother than other Arrows. The lady that rode in the train in front of us had puked all over herself and it had to be one of the funniest coaster moments I have ever had. She returned to the station laughing with puke all over herself and the ride ops wouldnt even come close to it! All they did was mop the seat down and threw some kittly litter type stuff on it and sent the train on a few laps. Thankfully, when they restarted operation, we got on the pukeless train. It was kind of hard to follow the puke story up but the ride was pretty cool. I really liked the initial tunnel after the first drop and the raised Arrow inversions.

this was one of the best rides at king dominion... under Hypersonic XLT and Volcano. Wonderfull elements of the ride was the ending corkscrews and the tunnel, and the loop coming out of the tunnel was cool too. very good, though doesnt deserve a ten in my books.

I would say this is my favorite Arrow looping coaster. One thing that i dont care for though is how jerky it is in the front during the butterfly turns and the corckscrew. The back is actually a bit smoother to me. Plas its cool to watch the other cars in front of you.

Ma-jor props to this ride for its scenery. PKD really knew what they were doing here. At some points you feel like youre going to be the first person to fall into the lake. I especially like sitting in the front seat to get optimum leg room. The only negative (which doesnt factor into the final score) is the fact you cant get a really good picture on this ride. Ive done about 20 rides and about 1 picture has been worthy of purchase. My home park is Carowinds, so I often compare this with the Carolina Cyclone. I try to be fair when I balance out the two because I believe (and correct me if im wrong) that there is like 13 years difference in age between them.
The only real nitpick with this ride is minimal headbanging which has left me discontorted a couple of times.

I loved this ride the drop and the part were you go through a tunnel under the water. Even though water shoots out of the lake, theyre trying to fool you. This was a great ride.

Awesome Ride, very smooth especially for an Arrow. Tunnel and Corkscrews are the best parts although the whole ride is awesome.

I like this ride. I do not remember it much. I rode it six years ago. All I remeber is diving in the water in the first drop. The entire rode took place high above the water and dived in to the water once (well a tunnel). It remined me of the Movie Anaconda when the snake is flying threw the air. Great Ride.

A good Arrow coaster, very exciting in the front, and I love the swooping helixes, and the nice headchoppers, but its really rough in the back, the tunnel is nice with the water spraying effect.
