Former names:Riverside Cyclone (6/24/1983 to 1999)
Trains:2 trains with 6 cars per train. Riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 24 riders per train.
Built by: Philadelphia Toboggan Coasters, Inc.
Facts:For the 2001 season the first drop shortened by about 15-20 feet.  It is still possible to see the old track beneath the new.

When the Riverside Cyclone opened it had two 3-bench PTC trains with single position lap-bar restraints.  In 1984 the trains were damaged and the two damaged trains were combined to make one good train.  In 1985 two new trains were purchased from Morgan.  For the 2000 season, two new PTC trains replaced the Morgan trains.
