Corkscrew is a steel roller coaster located at Valleyfair in Shakopee, Minnesota, USA. Built by Arrow Dynamics, Corkscrew opened in 1980 and is nearly identical to its sister roller coaster, Corkscrew, at Cedar Point. The only differences are the addition of a final helix and the omission of the camelback before the loop. Corkscrew is currently the only roller coaster at Valleyfair with inversions.

Design[edit | edit source]


The coaster's track was painted blue when it opened in 1980 but was repainted with orange track, yellow inversions and teal supports in 2011.

Trains[edit | edit source]

2 trains with 6 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 24 riders per train.
