Oddly enough, probably my favorite coaster at PKI. Just something about these old Custom Looping Coasters that I like. They may not be spectacular... but they are solid.

After the first time I rode this, in which I left in the park ambulance, I grew to love it more and more. The more you ride it the more you learn to control your neck and head to avoid any headbanging, and then its just plain great. I rode it three times yesterday, more than any other ride at PKI.

This ride is a great steel coaster IMO. It has 6 inverions and is really alot of fun other then the brakes in the middle of the ride. If you know how to turn your head with the coaster you dont get banged up on the shoulder restraints. I ride it a few times when I visit the park. I especially like to ride it at night because there are no lights on it and its more disorienting.

I went on this ride again recently I was going to wait to review this again, but with the stuff some have been saying I decided to review it NOW. I knew what to expect this time so my head didnt bounce around as much. So i rose the rating some points. The brakes are still rough however. I also noticed that the track shakes as the ride train goes by. I was wondering what the rattling sound was.

An overall fun ride, although it looks a lot more impressive than it is. Was pretty rough, and the mid-course brakes almost brought the ride to a complete stop. Some good airtime, although slamming back down into my seat afterwards was more painful than I was expecting. Definately worth a ride.

Good coaster, lots of fun. The only negative was the atrocious mid-course brakes slowing the train down to lift-hill speeds. Ruined the rest of the ride for me, even with the hangtime on the corkscrews. I was not expecting to pop out of my seat on the hill right after the lift, and cut my knee on the front of the car, which was REALLY surprising. Anyway, good looper.

this is another must ride for me everytime i go to kings island. idk why, but i have a very special spot for this coaster. maybe its because it was my first looping coaster?? or maybe the fact that this coaster is the only one not cloned like any other. idk, but all i can say is that the beating i get from this coaster is worth it everytime i ride it. the lines may look long, but this coaster is a people eater with 3 trains and you get on reasonably fast. if you have ever ridden this monster at night, you are in for a real treat! i was impressed at how much more thrilling it was as most rides are better at night, but all in all i love this coaster so i give this 18 year old arrow a full 10.

A little rough, and even a little rickety at some points, but the layout is cool, and the batwing is the best part of the coaster.

I like how the first drop doesnt have a loop, but instead dives back up. I got some airtime when sitting in the back. Its a little rough, to be exptected from an Arrow looper, but has held up nicely.

A decent looper in its time. Lacks the action of newer inverted and stand ups. I wish PKI would add many more coasters to their list and i would return there.
