Wicked Twister was built by Intamin AG, a Swiss company most notably known for building Millenium Force. It stands 215 ft tall and features two 450 degree spikes on both ends. Because of the double twisted spike, it makes the it the only Double Twist Impulse Roller Coaster at the moment. The roller coaster reaches 72 mph although it does not reach top speed until the 3rd or 4th run through the station.
Wicked Twister has been plagued with mechanical problems throughout the 2002 season, much due to its unique and pioneering structure. This may or may not have played a decision in the design of Cedar Fair's next Impulse Roller Coaster "Steel Venom" at Valleyfair!
