Corkscrew Knott's and Silverwood. Who has ridden

Friday, August 30, 2002 12:03 PM

Hello All,

Wondering who here has ACTUALLY ridden this coaster at both locations.

It doesn't draw to much of a crowd at Silverwood, but it does still scare people; because, "it goes upside down!"

I actuallyl really REALLY enjoyed this coaster at Silverwood. I forgot just how intense the G's are if you ride in the front.

To compare with WildThing at Enchanted Village, the track just isn't bent the same even though the layout is nearly identical. I find WildThing to be tamer, though dispite this the transistions into and out of the corkscrew are a real headbanger if sitting in the wrong car.

I'd really like to hear more opinions from others that have ridden these coasters.

I'm glad Silverwood has this coaster. Anyone that hasn't been to Silverwood should make an effort to go. It exceeded my expectations.

Rob - Moosh + Gator = Haters. An old joke that I refuse to let die, even if I'm the only one that thinks it's funny. :)

Dude, I can't wait. This is going to be a blast.

Ridden it at both locations. Never really thought much about it other than the fact that it is a piece of history. Reminds me of 'The Chicago Loop' formerly at the now defunct Old Chicago. The Matterhorn and mine-trains may have been first but it was Corkscrew that started the modern steel revolution.
