In 1975 this roller coaster opened as the Corkscrew at Knott's Berry Farm (Buena Park, California) and became the world's first modern roller coaster to go upside down. This roller coaster has been an important part of roller coaster history and was relocated to Silverwood Theme Park from Knott's in 1990.
