Small coaster with a big ride! I love the fact that it has just a lapbar instead of OTSRs. Its over before you know it, but all the more reason to step back in line to do it again!

Pales in comparison to Montu and Kumba. I didnt care for the heavy Gs.

Your average steel singl looper, very rickety and short but worth a ride.

Once again here I am to love Anton! Scorpion is a single-looping Schwarzkopf installation that isnt as impressive looping as others. The first drop isnt as steep as some or as twisted, and with only one loop and some helices the ride doesnt look to be great. However, its like the little looper that could because a lot of good is packed into the quarter acre it sits on. The loop is intense as expected, but the helices were as strong as any out there. Even a Schwarzkopf lover loke myself, used to the pounding forces, couldnt keep my hands up the whole time. Some may find this part of the ride repetitive and boring but on the contrary, I found it to be stong and thrilling as we hit the brakes and roller back into to the station. Lap bars, G-forces and a smooth ride add up to a 7.5, but Ill settle with a 7 for now. I going to re-align my ratings soon anyhow

Fun, continuous positive Gs, but short. I like the cute little station, but how would you form a line to get in front row when there is hardly enough room for one person to stand waiting for a row? The station is narrow! I love how the station gets the train out of it... by the lift! Its a cute little ride which Id love to have in my back yard.

Great fun to ride a looper with no horsecollar! Mr. Schwarzkopf, we miss you. Every one of your rides is a delight!

A little weak for my liking, but is good for what it is, an old coaster trying to make it in a new age.

A very good, older steel looping coaster. this coaster was the trademark of the park before kumba was built. not to mention it has a great location, right along side the octoberfesthaus!
