This is one of the better Schwarzkopf loopers. This ride has incerdible accelration. The lift is sligtly steeper then most at just over 60 feet tall you get a decent view of the area.The biggest problem with this ride is they only have one train. So when you reach the top of the sixty foot tallift hill there is a tiny drop and curve. You go down the first major hill with some of the best non-launching acceleration i&#39.ve seen. The loop is taken immeidatly after the frist major drop. There is a massive banked turn around curve that goes throught the center of the loop. There is then a triple heliex finally. I call this the &quot.Tornado Finale&quot.. There is then the final brakes. If you don&#39.t push your self against your seat at the end your going to hit yourself on the final brakes, the final brakes are very sudden. This may not be very long but,if in this park. DO not wait more then 20 minutes if you&#39.ve already been on it. Thats just my opinoin do what you want.

Fun for what it is. Despite its size, this scorpion actually has some sting to it with that loop. I went on a busy day and this actually didnt have a line so that was definitely a plus for me. The first drop was nothing to scream about, but that loop was extremely powerful and everything that a Schwarzkopf is known for. The intensity in the loop is comparable to that of loops that are over twice the size of it. However, after that the ride just fizzled out and the helixes had no intensity and speed to them making it a really boring ride for me after that loop. But since it was a walk-on, it was good to ride just to experience that loop, but it just wasnt as intense as other Schwarzkopfs Ive been on in the helixes.

This was a pretty basic looping coaster, but a very fun one. It has a great loop and finale but not much else to offer.

A good ride especially around 9 or 10 years old.
But even good as a teenager.
Just a lil short.
Love the loop.
The helixs are descent.
but thats it a loop and 2 helixs.
To be a great coaster you definately more than one inversion.
Definately worth riding again though.

One of the better Schwarzkopf coasters out there. The first drop, while not that big, is still fun. That vertical loop was amazingly powerful as the ride really piled on the Gs. Following that were two very fast and intense helixes that also had powerful Gs that pinned me to my seat. Only real negative is how quickly its over.

This was another coaster that scared me as I watched it. After riding it, I felt a lot more comfortable. One thing I find interesting about this coaster is the chain lift that actually starts in the loading station. The lapbar is cool, but this loop is so small and circular, it has a very awkward feel to it, almost like it should have shoulder harnesses.

This was a really fun and exciting ride. I always love Schwartzkopfs.

I really liked the restraints(or should i say lack of restraints?)

Anyways, It was pretty smooth for how old it looked like, and had a short line. You definitely shouldnt miss this one.

Very short but fun and classic coaster. It was great with the lap bars and seemed pretty fast, but was over pretty quickly. If they got rid of either of the smaller loopers I hope they are smart and get rid of Python. I prefer this Schwartzkopf over the arrow there any day.

A great little coaster. I reccomend riding this classic ride from Anton Schwarzkopf. I lke the hairpin turns and the loop is awesome. Plus no shoulder restraints is a plus!
