Ben said:Potential?, It HAD so much potential, now it's just an eyesore on it's way out.
Evan said:Nope it hasn't had a full repaint in years. I can't think of the last time it got repainted since they changed it from black and purple to red, yellow, and green.

The last time it was painted was for the 2001 season. So it's pushing a dozen years since that color scheme change!
The last time I rode it was in 1999 when it tried to decapitate me and realign my spine so I'd love to see the ride leave the park for good! It's a piece of crap with almost zero ridership. It's practically a lake ornament in KD.

Unagi, other than the figure eight section, which is complete and total garbage no matter where you sit, Anaconda is pretty comparable to other Arrow Loopers of its time frame. Arrow wasn't exactly the best when it came to the transitions between elements. I mean I'm still dumbfounded as to why the turnaround is banked so much going into the double cork, it's so awkward...

I have seen a couple pictures, and I've noticed that it looks like an orange thing hang off the harness. This seems unnecessary, and probably makes the loading process a whole lot longer because the ride ops probably have to bend all the way down to check it. Also, I go on LNM all the time, and I think it is a very smooth ride except for the jolt when you start the turn after the first drop, and the part after the first loop. So the question is, is it as bad as you guys say?
