Wicked Twister reviews
Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Wicked Twister, a roller coaster at Cedar Point. (The minimum height to ride is 52 inches.)
Written by Dan Forget
Using a LIM launch system, riders blast out of the station at 50 miles per hour, gradually increasing it's speed to a top speed of 72 MPH. Following a U-shaped track with twin 215-foot, 450-degree twisting towers, Each ride launches out of the station five times--three forward and two backward.
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
7- Nice ride, enjoyed the launch, sit in very front or very back for best results. - Justin Vuong
8-Commendable. Fast and twisted, but the backwards deceleration at the end of the ride left me feeling somewhat nauseous, a first for a roller coaster. The queue line is adjacent to the beach, which provides a mercifully cool breeze while you wait. - Joshua Counsil
Usually has fairly short lines. I enjoyed this ride. I wish it went higher, though. The initial launch is great and is my favorite part. We rode it about ten times, and found the very back to be the best spot. 8 out of 10. - Roger S
I waited a little longer than what I thought was worth it for this. It takes them a while to load because (I think) all the seats need to be filled? Regardless of that, it was a decent shuttle. I was a little dizzy afterwards, but nothing too serious. Try it. - Beth Bickar
