Cyclone debuted in March 1980 as the first coaster in the world to flip riders upside down four times. The ride features two vertical loops, two corkscrews, and a helix to finish off the ride. Still a popular ride after 25 years, the Cyclone has proven to be a joy to countless riders.

We rode it once, and that was enough. The loops are too tight and the corkscrews are a little on the rough side. It just wasn't all that much fun.

The loops were suprisingly smooth but the corkscrews were intense. I hate corkscrews on Arrow coasters. That's too bad, because that was their trademark thing, and all arrow loopers I know of have those dang double corkscrews.
