The ride first opened in 1976 at Geauga Lake & Wildwater Kingdom, where it was called Cyclone. Cyclone closed in 1980, and was relocated to Holiday World, where it operated from 1981 to 1997 as the Blitzen and then the Firecracker. It was then sold to John Hofeditz, who placed it at Jolly Roger Amusement Park during 1998 and later I-X Indoor Amusement Park from 1998 to 1999. It was then purchased by Amusements of America. The ride then made annual appearances at the Ohio State Fair from 1999 to 2009 under the name Avalanche.
