Head Spin

Geauga Lake's Wildwater Kingdom

Go upside down six times in just under two minutes on Geauga Lake's Head Spin roller coaster. The track on this "Boomerang" roller coaster does not form a complete circuit, so therefore the train shuttles both forwards and backward during the ride. Between the two 116-foot lift hills is 875-feet of track that is twisted into three inverting elements – a "boomerang" or cobra roll double inversion and a "vertical loop".
