    Inversions Location Headbanging Tear it down! Layout

    In staunch contrast to its reptilian sister an hour away at Busch Gardens Williamsburg, Anaconda is a travesty—standing for everything that makes Arrow loopers awful. Anaconda does feature a relatively unique layout for its time—but that is likely because Arrow could never manage to achieve what they set out to do with Anaconda. The underwater tunnel is a nice touch, but it can never make up for the layout that follows. Truly painful through and through.

    Location Hangtime Discomfort

    Not as bad as most people make it out to be. It's not the most comfortable ride in the world but I didn't think it was much worse than many other Arrows I've done. I rode this last in the late season so it wasn't running the fastest and that turned out to be a good thing. Ended up getting plenty of hangtime through the corkscrews. The location over the lake is also pretty cool. Not terrible but I think a replacement wouldn't be bad either.

    Intensity Headbanging Discomfort Tear it down!

    My main problem with this ride is that it's very boring. It has some awful transitions in the second half, but it takes them way too slow for them to be especially bad. I did actually really like the first half of this ride, it was way more intense than I expected and is fairly smooth.

    Can I even put into words how much head banging there was, it gave me a migraine for another hour. Not to mention that it was my 2nd to last ride of the day. This ride sucks.

    First Drop Hangtime Rattle Discomfort

    I didn't find it to be nearly as bad as what other enthusiasts say, but it's not particularly memorable. The first drop into the underwater tunnel is pretty cool and there's some nice hangtime moments, but it's a one and done kind of coaster. There's also a noticeable rattle.

    Hangtime Rattle Headbanging Discomfort

    While I have a bias towards Arrow loopers, this is not a very comfortable ride. As a native Virginian, I go to Kings Dominion at least 10 times a year, though I rarely remember having a good ride on this coaster. While the hangtime on the corkscrews offers good hangtime, they are rough and due to the over-the-shoulder restraints your head will bang into them, and as a tall person, I rode this and have had neck pains for the rest of the day. If this is not your home park, I suggest riding this coaster for the credit then moving on to something else, I would not recommend a second ride, definitely with a better multi-looper in the park that offers a much better ride. Also, one year I rode this, I had my glasses in my case in my pocket, at the end of the ride not only was the case broken but the glasses as well.

    Inversions Location Headbanging Tear it down! Dead spots

    Vortex died in vain, because this is Cedar Fair's worst Arrow looper. Why does such a big ride only have four inversions? Why is there no awesome drop? Why is so much potential energy wasted on the worst designed turns in the history of American steel coasters? Why does the midcourse hit so hard? Where's the final helix? Now it's not all bad, because the inversions are quite good, and the location is excellent, but that's about it. Anaconda is such an anomaly, and this enormous land plot over the water is way better suited for a kickass Mack launched coaster.

    Location Pointless

    I wish it was the Anaconda (the movie) of rides. It needs to be bonkers and could use Jon Voight with a stupid accent to make it better. Its very boring and uninspired. It has a cool location but its a nonsensical tame layout. It struggles rather uncomfortably to get through its odd profiled turns and slow corkscrews. I don't think it will last much longer. Hopefully. On the plus side...its far from the most uncomfortable arrow looper I've ridden.

    Layout

    By no means the worst Arrow concoction, but by no means the best either. Smoother than it looks, however the layout is somewhat on the less inspired side.

    Location Hangtime Rattle Pointless

    Anaconda isn't as bad as many make it out to be. There is a slight rattle, but I've never found it distracting. The ride is absolutely beautiful over the lake. Unfortunately, the ride is kinda boring. It has a lot of slow, circle-like maneuvers, with wonky transitions. The corkscrews were actually my favorite part because you get some hangtime going through them so slowly.
