Wow, I LOVE this ride! I don;t know what attracts me to it though. It just looks like an average coaster, but its really a lot of fun! Maybe its because there was absolutely NO line at all so I rode 5 consecutive times without getting up from the seat!

A fun ride and not as rough as I thought that it would have been. Nice effects with the splash down into the tunnel and I really liked the layout after the mid course breaks. Creative on Arrows end with the swooping helices and that banked turn into the corkscrews gives a weird but cool feeling of laterals. I also like the setting over the lake

My all-time favorite coaster at PKD. For an Arrow, its quite smooth. The right-twisting drop has to be one of the greatest drops on a coaster. It may not be the fastest, tallest, coaster. But the inversions and the underwater tunnel are great. Shooting up into the loop and the sidewinder is great. The turn onto the brake run is a lttle rough. After that, the Butterfly turns are great but they knock your head around. The corkscrew finale is one of the greatest endings of a ride, and give you that great dizzying feeling. A must ride!

Anaconda was a nice suprise. The first drop and tunnel was very cool with great visuals, and the corkcrews were great. The twisting part after the midcourse was a little rough but nothing I couldnt handle. Overall, its one of the better looping coasters Ive ridden.

A fun arrow coaster. Great visuals as you dive down above Rebel Yell and also as you go into the corkscrew section. I was expecting it to be rough (like Viper at SFDarien Lake), but the transitions are much smoother.

UPDATE: It has gotten rougher over the years. Of course, I rode in back this time... always a rougher ride on this type of coaster I believe.

Good loops, good tunnel, very smooth running and a fine drop. Whats not to like?

An exciting ride, which combines a good drop, four fun-filled inversions, and a nifty underwater tunnel. Although the brake strip halfway through the ride does slow it down to an extent, the train definitely has enough speed to hurtle through the two corkscrews. And whats more, the coaster looks spiffy in its new coat of paint. As for roughness, this coaster was smooth as a babys bottom. I recomend this ride to anyone who likes looping coasters, and to anyone who has never tried one before.

Not a fan of looping coasters, this ride is, none-the-less, one of the better ones out there. Relatively smooth and in an ideal setting, the coaster navigates its course without much bruising. The tangled end of the track is more exciting than it looks.

It is an Arrow. That should explain everything, but it is a surprisingly painless Arrow, and has a very unique underwater tunnel, which makes this one better then most.

MY absolute favorite rollercoaster of all time!!! i have yet to find its equal! i cant really say why, or what happened the first time i really saw it, it just looks the way a rollercaoster should look. i mean, the beauty, and the beautiful sound of that chain, and the underwater tunnel, everything is just completly in sync with this ride. if u have ever been in love, you will know how i feel about this ride. if it was a human, i would marry it, really!!! i dont know what it is exactly about it, but i think its the combination on the location (Virginia, and that great lake!), the the simplistic beauty, and color (which i am sad to say has been changed since my last ride, but i think it still looks great!!), and the ride design itself. the way it goes into the water, and then into the reverse dive loop, and the vertical, and the corkscrews. i can still remember my uncle trying to explain the difference between a loop, and a corkscrew to me!! so many memories, and such a great ride. GO RIDE IT!!!!!!
