I sat in the front and I was fine! It was somewhat rough, but I enjoyed it! Maybe the seats behind it are excessively painful. - Ryan Pickhardt

Hurt really bad and the whole ride looked like it was ready to collapse. The rode shakes more than a shake weight and I mean basically swaying. I think it was about to fall apart. - Andrew Dougherty

When I was waiting in line, there happened to be somthing everyone was pointing two on the ride. They were watching just how much this ride shakes and wiggles while on its course. And this isnt some little shaking you find on coasters such as Top Thrill Dragster, this was MASSIVE shaking. The ride itself was super rough, good air, but the bottoms of the hills were horrendus. After I rode the ride shut down due to tech. difficulties. But then I saw people hamering the loose pieces of wood on the ride lol Trust me im serious! what i want to ask to future people who will type a comment is that does this always happen??? Does the ride always shake back and forth on the overbanked turn opposite side of the first drop?? - Joey Till

Some retracking love and some over-ambitious braking additions have served to make this old coaster ride-able. But sadly because of the over-braking and other slow-down issues, there's not much to this ride after a very promising and fun first drop. The Cyclone is definitely a good candidate for the Iron Horse solution used on the Texas Giant at Six Flags Over Texas as the layout would provide some excellent thrills if the coaster was allowed to operate at full speed. - James Rao

Worst and roughest coaster I've ever ridden. Little to no airtime and at the bottom of every hill I felt like I broke a rib. I had to walk gingerly the for 20 minutes afterward. This ride should be demolished. - David Garey
