Wow! What an amazing ride!! Easily my number one roller coaster. The loops are filled with positive Gs while the ending is filled with negative Gs. This ride has a great combination of G forces and is a ture, great classic. Schwarzkopfs are the best!!

its a classic. Another JRS view, one side highway, other side park. I love it. like i said in the JRS review, you can wave at all the people on the highway. i like waving while im in the loops. anyways, its an overall GREAT ride. its so much fun and its so smooth. I love it. I give it a 10

Whats up with the chain lift? Its so slow its funny! Anyways, Id ride this before you rode TX Giant or Titan bc otherwise the drop isnt going to be as enjoyable. The loops are intense tho I think maybe as intense as the helixes in Titan! Thank god there are only lap bars or otherwise it wouldnt be as fun. It has some pretty good airtime and stuff after the loops but Ive been on better. And its getting pretty old and rough and afterwards I get a little dizzy but I still ride it bc the lines arent ever very long.

This is my favorite roller coaster. I love its speed and smoothness, and I love the very small track. It is like you are flying. I also love how it lifts you out of your seat. The lines are never long, either.

My only complaint is that it is too short of a ride.

God Bless Anton Schwarzkopf. He was building these funky original coasters while people were "ooohing" and "aaaahing" over John Allen’s retro creations in the 1970s.

Classic ride, although I dont like the new colors, it makes it look like Mindbender in SFOG. But other than that, it had great drops and turns, I liked the drop into the go-carts and the helix around the pond, but other than that it was a litte rough and the cars looked a little worn-out.

This ride is a cool experience. GOing through the loops with out shoulder restraints is cool and the loops are actually pretty intense for the age of this ride. The rest of the ride is pretty lame though.

this ride was good but th only good part was the double loop. after that it got slow and it is a very short ride anyways. the line was short so that was good.

Great ride. Double loops are fantastic.
A must ride for SFOT.

This was the first looping coaster I ever rode. It has an old coaster charm to it, but its kinda short and its not that scary. Would be better if it was a little more intense.
