Super strong ejector air with only a buzz bar. The people at the park said it was WI state law that only 18+ ride the last car, and they have that written in black marker on a wooden handrail near the entrance to the station.
Cyclops was my 50th coaster and the only place I wanted to sit was the back seat and all I have to say is major air time. Words can't describe this awesome rush, you just have to ride in the back to see what I am talking about.
There were some other guys that showed up after my wife and I marathoned the coaster and I told them about the back seat as they wanted to know what the big deal was, lets just say they were in the back seat for at least 20 laps in a row after that.
Avalanche is better...so no, not on the planet. I think the air on Cyclops is actually a bit too strong as it hurts me every time and does not feel like flying as much as just having my legs wacked with the buzz bar, but that is just my opinion. I do really like the air on the second hill however.
Before I visited Mt. Olympus last June all I heard was "Ride Cyclops in the last seat, the airtime is amazing!" and "OMG the last drop on Cyclops is the best ever!" and on and on and on.
So I rode it. Yeah, its good air but it didn't live up to the hype. At the very least it suffered from overhype or anticipointment. Sitting in the last row I thought the air coming off the lift was better than that on the last drop. And I didn't think the last drop was any more or less intense than other infamous "5th Drops" on Raven, Ghostrider, and others.
In fact none of the three MtO woodies lived up to the pre-trip hype, especially Zeus which I had hoped would be a better version of Timber Terror.
That is just it with Cyclops...it is not a good drop, but it still makes you wack that buzz bar harder than any other coaster I have been on. The strong air on Raven and ST are a lot more fun, but it does not eject you as fast.
While the rest of the ride was just O.K., that drop on Cyclops is the only one to literally put my ass on the seat divider. Georgia Cyclone has come close but Cyclops was the only one to actually do it.:)
