Notes:After comparing Sanborn maps and topography maps it seems the layout of the roller coaster was changed between Moxahala and LeSourdsville.

The Cyclone was dismantled and moved from Moxahala in 1940.  It isn't confirmed it opened at LeSourdsville in 1940, so the date could be off by a year.
Owner / Operator:James Figley owned the Cyclone / Space Rocket from about 1960 until 1966 when the park owner Howard Bernie purchased it from James Figley.
