Wicked Twister is a 215 foot tall Intamin impulse coaster at Cedar Point. For those of you who don’t know what that is take a look at this picture:
Yes, the track stops at the tops of those delicate looking towers, basically the track is a big U that twists on the way up. The coaster is situated on the beach so we get a nice view of Lake Erie while waiting in line. We get into the seats that are situated below the track (it is an inverted coaster) and pull down the shoulder restraints. The ride operators put their thumbs up and we know that it will begin soon. Wham!!! Wicked Twister shoots forward faster and faster and then we shoot up the first tower, the front car twists a little but we don’t get anywhere near the top. We fall backwards through the station and being launched that direction up into the second tower. The train falls back into the station where we launch yet again to the ride’s top speed of 72 Miles per hour, and to the first spire again. We know that we are going to get a lot higher this time and the front car comes within 20 feet of the top. Back through the station we go to the second tower yet again where we get some airtime before we drop. There is a short trip to the first tower where we get about halfway up before returning to the station for the fifth and last time
Wicked Twister is fun although it is at Cedar Point and there are better coasters within a 10 minute walk. I am giving it a 7 out of 10.
