Scorpion

Scorpion was a troika style flat ride which sat next to the pier on the west side of Adventure Island.

The ride, a Tivoli Scorpion, was a smaller version of the popular Huss Troika three-armed spinning ride. Each arm held a wheel containing seven gondolas which each seated two people side by side. As Scorpion's central column span, each wheel would spin in the opposite direction at an angle, inducing a strong centipetal force on the riders at high speed.

Scorpion closed at the end of the 2018 season, and its site is now occupied by Dragon's Claw which was moved to make way for Axis.
