This is a typical Arrow corkscrew. Its in good condition and its pretty smooth, but its too short. They need to run it through twice, especially on slower days, and while the OTSRs dont play ping-pong with your head like they do on some coasters, when they do hit they hit HARD, making extra padding a missing necessity. Nevertheless I enjoyed this particular model better than the Python at BGT.

As I read reviews I am becoming more and more baffled. I really liked the look of this park and had a nice day, but this ride getting a 9 or 10 is just not possible. The banging on this is to be expected due to its age and the company that made it. The paint is weird in the fact that the park has a light and happy feel then this is black and yellow so it seems out of place. Even if you give it age points it is a two corkscrew coaster that is very short and has a drop that is barely longer then the train. Short, slow and mildly rough. Not even the best of this layout I have been on. Not to mention the 2+ minutes I spent sitting in the station as the ops jacked around with who knows what. Worse then the clone at MIA so my rating is also worse.

Canobies only inverting ride is a pretty poor one at best. I actually like the rides iconic yellow paint job and it the ride just really seems to fit in with the park. Lines usually are around 10-15 minutes at worst for this. I did find the cars on this one to be more cramped than on other loopers Ive been on. Well, the ride is very short like all Arrow corkscrews, but the first drop gives some pretty good air in the back and theres only a little headbanging during the first corkscrew and thats it. Its still worth a ride or two while at Canobie, but just not nearly as good as the many other coasters out there.

The only corkscrew coaster model Ive been on, and I think I prefer it over the Vekoma Boomerangs that you see everywhere nowadays. Wish it was longer and a bit more smooth but its still in line with what Canobie does in the moderate rides rather than sheer thrills. The headbanging can be bad but I usually dont find it too overbearing, and the first drop occassionally can give some decent air in the back. Not that important but still worthy of mentioning-- the new paint scheme is actually one of my favorite paint schemes of all time and makes the coaster still look new.

You know what to expect here. Its a nice ride, and I found it to be rather smooth, but its short. Can anyone really justify complaining about that though. Its pretty straight forward, theres no way not to notice the length. Line moves at a good pace, as it should, but you dont gain much from this ride. Nothing unexpected, nothing unusual, its a corkscrew.

Unfortunely this ride may be the most beautiful looking Arrow ride put on the face of the Earth, but its still an Arrow. Short, dull, and boring.

Come on guys, this is a great ride!

If you sit in the back, you get some amazing ejector airtime when your going down the first drop. The rest of the ride is great too. The corkscrews are pretty smooth, and then theres a nice turn to the station.

The ride is always a walk-on, and has a nicely landscaped area that it is located in.

rrggghh...this was fine for its time, but this is nothing at all compared to any modern looping coaster. Its way too short, too.
