Ride historyEdit

Announcement and constructionEdit

Construction on the attraction began October 15, 2001, when Aquarium was demolished. Wicked Twister was announced by park officials on November 20, 2001. The coaster's first steel pieces were erected onto the ride structure on December 15, and the first pieces of track were installed four days later, on December 19, 2001. The coaster's construction was complete sometime from January - April 2002.

OpeningEdit

The coaster held a media day on May 2, 2002, and opened publicly three days later, on May 5, 2002. 

2003 remodelingEdit

Before the park opened for the 2003 season, the park added two yellow supports to the ride's structure to connect the track to the top of the main support structure.

Ride synopsisEdit

After the riders are loaded into the train, the train accelerates at 72mph out of the station and up the first hill. It then descends the hill backwards and up the other hill backwards. This pattern constantly continues throughout the ride's period, until the train hits the brakes and reenters the train station.
