Cyclone Sam’s is a themed dark ride. There is a pre-ride waiting area with a couple of TV monitors to set up the experience. The attraction itself is a standard Chance Morgan Wipeout ride sitting on a black top, surrounded by special effect props and a strobe light or two.

How does anyone hate this! This is just adorable. I loved it for the cheesy mess it was. 8/10
Cyclone Sam’s is a valiant attempt at a themed dark ride, however it fails on so many levels that it is hard to like the attraction. The pre-show waiting area has a couple of LCD monitors that used to set up the story for the attraction, but now they just play "FUN TV". Ugh, I hate "Fun TV". The attraction itself, once you SLOWLY make it in, is nothing more than a standard Wipeout ride on a dodge ball black top, surrounded by special effect props about as good as those found at the local city theater. Oh yeah, it also has a strobe light or two. Having said all that, Cyclone Sam’s is a better attraction than it should be, just because it is in the dark and has a slight theme. It would be nice to see the special effects, queuing area, and ride itself upgraded with a strong attention to the details of the theme. But no matter how well the theme is upgraded, the ride will still be a Wipeout in a barn. 6-Fair.
I enjoyed the ride but theming was awful 7/10
