I’m Going to Ride a Coaster for the First Time in 3 Years – My Thoughts

I am going to ride a roller coaster that I haven’t ridden in 3 years. The last time I rode the coaster was on July 3rd, 2015 and I had a HORRIBLE ride on it.

The worst ride I have ever had on that ride ever, the worst ride in the park, and the worst experience on a roller coaster.

And that coaster is Corkscrew at Cedar Point.

To be completely honest, I have no idea what to expect. I am not looking forward to riding it.

Yes, the ride is a classic. It opened in 1976 being the first coaster to have three inversions. Everyone gets that. But it’s the worst coaster at the park by far and you get so much headbanging.

Hopefully, it isn’t too bad now that I know some techniques to avoid headbanging.

I AM VERY NERVOUS! Of course, it is an Arrow Dynamics coaster like Magnum XL-200, but can it at least be rough and fun as Magnum is.

It is ridiculously rough which takes away the fun of the ride and actually makes it a horrible coaster to ride.

My old rating from that last ride was a 46/100 and I’m hoping the ride at least gets a D when I ride it at Cedar Point. I am not expecting it to be better than that.

Hearing things from my fellow coaster friends, it is around a high D rating so I’m excited to try it out.

Also for some quick stats about the ride:

The famous Ron Toomer designed it just like Magnum and it is 85 feet with a drop of 65 feet at a 45-degree angle. There are 3 inversions, of course, and the 2,050 feet of track lasts 2 minutes.

Hopefully, it’s like Carolina Cyclone at Carowinds which I rode back in March!

My final conclusion about these rides is they are hit or miss. Sometimes I had a good experience with them and a bad experience.

When I visited Carowinds for 3 days in March and only rode Carolina Cyclone a few times, I got 1 bad ride, 2 okay rides, and a few good rides.

I will be sure to do a review and share my experience with you soon after I ride it! Wish me good luck!
