Hey all,

After a little break from building coasters I'm back with a recreation
of the Excelsior Park Cyclone.  It's a quirky little L shaped out and
back with some decent air and a wicked headchopping helix.  Head on
over to www.Negative-G.com to give it a ride.

Have Fun!

From what I've heard of here in minnesota, High Roller at Valleyfair!
is a replica of the coaster at Excelsior.  Could I be wrong?  This
doesn't look like the one at valleyfair.  It is an L shaped out and
back but just 2 turnaround turns and 2 90 degree turns.  pretty basic,
but one of the funnest, nonetheless.

That's a new one.  Usually I hear "that white coaster at Valleyfair is the
one that used to be at Excelsior."  I don't have a lot of success convincing
people that it's not.  They've got it in their heads, and refuse to let it
dislodge.

Yeah, Walt Wittmer, the former head at Valleyfair! said that the park
wanted to do nothing about this rumor as it keeps perpetuating the
name of Valleyfair! and is great word-of-mouth advertising.

That makes sense.  And it certainly causes no harm.

And besides, they DID get Excelsior's carousel.

As well as its Trabant, Super Cat (I think) and a Flying Scooter (no longer there).
