In my book. Not a very exciting ride. Not very smooth and you can not see anything. - Joe Schwartz

Short and sweet. And I love the acceleration. 7-Good. - James Rao

This was actually my favorite coaster until Gatekeeper came out! It provides amazing thrills all throughout! There is never a wait over 30 mins and it is worth it even if there was! The launch to 72 mph feels awesome and the spirals are insane!! I wish the ride was a little longer, but it's still a must ride coaster! - Joe Strutz

Great coaster with an intense launch. I love how every time it shoots through the station it gains more speed. Ride 3/4 of the way back or 2/4 of the way to the front. Not the middle unless you have a fear of heights and don't want to enjoy what makes this thing so good: the height. - Bradley Keith

i rodthis ride three times in one day first time i rode in the middle and i wont lie it was probully the worst coaster i ever rode then my freinds convinced me to ride again and that time i chose the front thats when it started getting good if ur in the front seat u actually get to the top of the spiral so it was much more fun then going half way up after that i had so much fun and got in line again and rode in the back the back made this coaster one of my favorates at cedar point first u get the whole launch then when u come back after the first drop and start ur ascent to the top of the spiral u are not sure when the top is its trully amazing the back gives u some amazing airtime so basicly back is more fun front is better view and middle sucks - ed shaheen

Wicked Twister is an amazing ride that really captures speed and height all at the same time. A fun ride to ride and the best part is it usually isn't that long of a wait. This is a must ride when visiting Cedar Point 9/10 - Shayne Nissen

A fun ride with a short line. It is breathtaking at the end in the back. I must say that it is a bit too short and it kind of nauseates me. Still a must ride at the point. 8/10. - Edward Morgan

WT's location is excellent, though it can get cold standing in line at night. Ride in the very back seat; the view looking down from the top of the back spiral is amazing. - Jamie Bennish
