Corkscrew was a steel roller coaster previously located at Genting Theme Park in Genting Highlands, Pahang, Malaysia.


The coaster was originally sold as a travelling coaster to Fritz Kinzler & Oskar Bruch, named Super Spirale. It would appear on the Annakirmes fair in Düren, Germany the next year, in August of 1979. It would be its first and final appearance on fairs, and it would be sold to Traumlandpark immediatly afterwards, reopening at the park only a month later. It would close in 1986 as the park struggled to attract more visitors, and was rebranding itself to Neue Traumland.

Its new home would be at Jolly Roger Amusement Park in Ocean City, Maryland, USA. It opened here in 1987 as Time Twister. Its final season of operation would be in 1993, after which the coaster would be sold a final time. Its former spot was converted into a car park.
