A very short and not very thrilling roller coaster that is overlooked because of the great coasters at this park. Basically its a small somewhat "kiddie" coaster aside from the one loop. As much as it was boring, it would be a great coaster for kids who want to conquer their fears of going upside down. Gets a 7 because of that and that I loved this park.

I had heard about this ride and knew it was a classic Schwartzkopf, and that made me excited, as it would be my first major coaster by the Father of the Modern Rollercoaster. I was both happy and disappointed with Scorpion. I thought the loop w/o OTSRs was alot of fun, but the pullout of the first drop and beginning of the loop were a little bit rough. The ride has alot of headchopper effects, but its age is apparent in that it isnt kept up the best and is starting to get a little bit rough. Its still worth a ride though, if nothing else but to say youve been on a classic Schwartzkopf looping coaster.

A good ride for first time roller coaster riders. it only has one inversion and is really short but still delivers a good ride. Its a much better ride than the Python.

Ah good old Schwarzkopf. This ride is very nice and although its small, it still packs a punch. The loop and the helix pack in some nice gs and the pretzel turn-around is a nice, creative touch.

It may look small, but the Scorpion is actually really cool. It is great for first time riders, but also for people who want an exciting ride. Trust me, it is worth it.

I had ridden all the other rollercoasters except this one! It was pretty cool! I loved the fact that you completed a full 360 degree loop w/ out over the shoulder restraints! Nice overlapping spirals too at the end! WAY better than the Python! I also like it b/c there wuz no line and we rode it like 8 times w/ out getting off and we kept switching seats like every time it stopped!

Yea it was a short ride. But the loop without OTSRs scared the poo out of me. Just as Montezumas Revenge.
