    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.

    The aftermath of this ride gave me a migraine that felt as bad at a 10 foot long pole inserted into my brain. It was agonizing. The ride's color scheme looks like VOMIT. It's not even pretty over the drying up lake. It's just a neglected ride that has been sitting in a neglected park decaying for decades. The queue line has 0 theming, same as the station. The ride's restraints are bulky and restrictive. After going up the rusting lift hill, you go into a somewhat large drop which isn't steep at all. At the bottom of the drop you flat out into an underwater tunnel. So far the ride is pretty fun not gonna lie. You go into a vertical loop and a sidewinder, they are forceful but you start to feel the headbanging, but it gets worse. You jolt into the mid-course brakes which give you massive headbanging and better yet, slow the train to the halt. You proceed to go into random horribly profiled turns which give zero forces and a lot of headbanging. You turn into your final two inversions which are corkscrews, these are fun. The final element is a pointless airtime hill provides nothing, and then you finally jerk into the final brake run. I hate this ride so much.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Location Hangtime Discomfort

    Towards the bottom of the arrow list but had some good moments. The drop underwater was fun and I rode this in the cold which gave me some awesome Hangtime in the corkscrews. The setting is really nice but the ride is noticeably rough and uncomfortable at times.

    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.
