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 vertical loop. Corkscrew is currently the only roller coaster at Valleyfair with inversions.
