The first coaster in the world to go upside down three times. Designed by Arrow Dynamics, it was built in 1976. It features an airtime hill, a vertical loop and a double corkscrew that turns riders directly over the midway.

It is just kind of there. Ride it once. Its not worth more.
Never again. Too easy to get whiplash. Go in the back.

Tight turns make you an easy victim to neck pain

I like the historic significance and it's a good ride for people who like inversions but not too many. It is however quite uncomfortable at times especially the loop. The best features are the corkscrews over the midway, which is also a great photo opp location. Rating: (6/10)
There's almost nothing redeeming about this ride. I doubt it will ever go anywhere, as the ride doesn't take up much space and is somewhat of a defining feature of the Gemini Midway, but I don't have any desire to ride this one again.
Corkscrew may have had some merit in the past, and does provide some great views along the midway, but the ride is just “meh”. A one-and-done coaster for us. 4-Weak.
