A fine scrambler...perhaps a bit faster than is typical. In general a pretty usual ride experience.

5 minutes is a very long cycle for a scrambler. Average speed for a scrambler: Psychodrome's faster, Astrosphere is maybe a little slower. There is a good chance you will get sand in your eye. The operator and grouper for my ride felt it necessary to waste everyone's time before the ride, with a friendly screaming contest with dodgems next door.

Pretty good scrambler when I rode this. The speed was about average, but they ran this for a very long time and I swear it lasted almost 5 or 6 minutes. It was a walk-on too.

Scramblers will forever remain one of my all-time favorite flats, and well, York’s really knows how to run their flats, and their Scrambler is included in this observation. Located across from the Spiral Twirl towards the back of the park, the Scrambler looks no different than any other Eli Bridge scrambler with its dull, gray paint scheme. However, the attraction seemed very clean and didn’t show any wear in the seats like some of the older scramblers do.

Now regarding lines, there never are any. Why? Well, not only does it have a high capacity, but the ride never has a wait despite being one of the park’s best attractions due to the low popularity of the park. The worst I’ve had to wait was 5 minutes or so, the length of the ride’s cycle! However, this scrambler seems to have maintenance issues from what I’ve observed, as often times it is down for maintenance, and one such time the ride was running at half speed due to mechanical problems. Hopefully the park can get these worked out in the next few years.

Once seated on this scrambler, the ride begins and blows me away time and time again. Not only does it have the absolutely insane 5 minute cycle that I touched upon earlier in my review, but also this Scrambler seems to run slightly faster than the others I’ve been on, leading to a wilder, more satisfying ride complete with some great laterals and a really good effect of colliding with the other cars.

Overall, York’s Scrambler is easily one of the park’s best attractions thanks to its surprising intensity and absolutely mind-blowing length. Really my only complaint is the aforementioned maintenance trouble the park seems to have with their great Scrambler. Definitely this is one of the better scramblers I’ve been on anywhere, and it is a must ride during a visit to York’s Wild Kingdom. Heck, even if it were in a bigger, more distinguished park, if it were run identical to the way York’s runs it, it would still be a great attraction.

A good Scrambler, but be sure you like this type of ride before you go because it runs for a long time, a really long time. Great speed and worth the time.

Ok so it’s your average scrambler but they run it for a long time. They also start slow, gets fast then slows down again so you experience everything the ride is capable of.
