1978

 

So one day, I was just sitting in my office minding my own business when my coworker brought me a newspaper telling me that I should read the front page.

It read:

 

NEW THEME PARK OPENS IN CHATTANOOGA!

Yesterday on June 17th 1978, The newest theme park in Tennessee: Cypress Adventures has opened to the public! Home to 2 family coasters and rides fun for the whole family!

People having fun on the park's signature ride: Runaway Express

 

Excited, I made plans to visit Cypress Adventures next weekend on the 24th. I couldn't believe that a theme park opened just 15 minutes away from where I lived! I loved theme parks, and I always visited Silver Dollar City in Tennessee and Opryland, but both parks were about 2 hours away.

 

Flash forward to June 24th, I stepped into Cypress Adventures for the first time. It was a nice park!

20180928190939_1.thumb.jpg.f797a1cf38b53466ca5515cee06ba4e1.jpg

I'm here!

20180928191005_1.thumb.jpg.b7265c8fd72a9e1782b7b50a3b3a1a80.jpg

This park's landscaping is beautiful! I should mention that this park doesn't have a "main street" like most parks do

20180928191102_1.thumb.jpg.d45c66ebbd705d5f3a8e0e35aeec4d2c.jpg

Decided to take the path on the right and the first ride I encountered was Gunslinger. The line was pretty long for it.

20180928191116_1.thumb.jpg.24a4a30d27ac1c5255b4028384d809e6.jpg

I wasn't lying about the line.

20180928191146_1.thumb.jpg.044bc333927de80e106701e555a84c90.jpg

I was surprised when I saw this park has a trokia! I actually love these rides!

20180928191158_1.thumb.jpg.ed6db91a597bec1c16f3f1861dfe8f0c.jpg

One of the 2 stops for the train which circles the park.

20180928191206_1.thumb.jpg.86f043d6452dfa650113dc1932955fd1.jpg

Time for me to check out the biggest (bigger than the kiddie coaster) coaster at the park: Runaway Express! The line was posted at a 3 hour wait!

20180928191241_1.thumb.jpg.41430af321888bf7640064238ff7dcdb.jpg

Runaway Express really uses its terrain well, and you can't even see most of the layout! This is the most of the layout you'll see from the path.

20180928191334_1.thumb.jpg.cfa7ab05ce8624853826a74ecbfa35db.jpg

I wasn't allowed to bring my camera on the ride, but it followed the terrain nicely with a surprise final drop that no one can see coming. It seemed a lot steeper than it looked.

Here' the park's log flume: Cypress Plunge

20180928191451_1.thumb.jpg.b6176fdeb6b9aeacb86ec45c7332d9c9.jpg

I like the wheel you can see from the queue

20180928191527_1.thumb.jpg.a50ebd0ecb681598de6e09e37a80196e.jpg

Basically the ride sits on a hill, you go up the lift and then just go around in random turns, until the final drop, where you forget you're on a hill, so you don't see how big the drop is until you're on it!

The park's observation tower: Skyrama

20180928191604_1.thumb.jpg.5291287e2dd28fd0b37b5fcc7d8fb701.jpg

It's pretty tall

20180928191650_1.thumb.jpg.4560b88b8f913933710958ec983e7a9b.jpg

and it provides some awesome views!

Big Wheel

20180928191817_1.thumb.jpg.4a13a2851ac7f8bb719cf6da5e06421b.jpg

Here's the park's fantasy section. It was very crowded

20180928191831_1.thumb.jpg.0aaff72134a3fd18d7646cf0a39c3cb8.jpg

I wonder what's inside this mysterious castle styled building

20180928191839_1.thumb.jpg.56a66ea4b26b240facb5d56771d1c80f.jpg

Castle Crash bumper cars!

20180928191852_1.thumb.jpg.1642d7096dde6a5ecdab968a1c6c7e4e.jpg

Cypress Adventure's kiddie coaster, Dragon run was pretty popular with the kids

20180928191939_1.thumb.jpg.6a044ddc2095b24a0b4ca9f8d66befaf.jpg

but the carousel did not have that much attention, surprisingly

20180928191728_1.thumb.jpg.3cb064ea19a8d79de92126d76dec2169.jpg

I decided to ride the train before I left and I'm glad I did! It goes through part of Runaway Express's course! Here's the big final drop I was talking about!

On my way out, I picked up a postcard that showed the park from above. I can't wait to see what this park brings in the future!

October 1978

 

I decided to visit Cypress Adventures one last time before the season ended. I did not intend to make a trip report, but I discovered something new that I just had to take photos of and share:

20180929161619_1.thumb.jpg.ca12647052b3f4a9b9f824d80f117db4.jpg

I'm here one last time before the end of the 1978 season!

20180929161107_1.thumb.jpg.07d4db17b0dfcd1686637c4b16f38c59.jpg

The usual lake. Wait... Somethings different...

20180929161144_1.thumb.jpg.1136d2cf197afbbc9486992571f8da8d.jpg

First thing I did was take a ride on Skyrama just for a shot of what appears to be a new coaster being built!

20180929161020_1.thumb.jpg.81f5657b64d00aa278b0f5fd31063f7f.jpg

I snuck my camera onto Cypress Plunge just so I could take a picture of this new coaster!

20180929160933_1.thumb.jpg.464f987cab4a177787ef4d05a5fa8a36.jpg

and this is a zoom shot of the coaster I took over the construction walls that was blocking off the path to the coaster. It appears to be an arrow coaster. A corkscrew model perhaps? The park did state that they're announcing something in 2 days, so we'll just have to wait and see...

NEW FOR 1979!

 

Cypress Adventures introduces its first looping roller coaster: TWISTER where you go upside down not once, but TWICE!

Seek shelter and hang on! a wild twister is making its way in 1979, sending you down a 62 ft drop through 2 corkscrew inversions and around a helix before the storm ends!

 

See you next year!

April 1979

 

Today is the official public opening of Cypress Adventure's new coaster, Twister! I honestly did not expect a new coaster to open on the 2nd season of operation. The owners are really investing in this park!

 

Without further ado, here is my trip report of Twister's opening day:

20180930142153_1.thumb.jpg.921f6f4de22f83be57653e5502c9622d.jpg

I decided to check on the Runaway Express to see if Twister took away the crowds, but it didn't surprisingly!

20180930142248_1.thumb.jpg.28c3e6be2af90d03633c6960b7ff01a6.jpg

Quick ride on Rodeo since it was a 10 minute wait

20180930142327_1.thumb.jpg.fdf21f0822e05ea3a9e62b3fbf642b37.jpg

hmm I wonder where this crowd is heading to?

20180930142345_1.thumb.jpg.a30e276729ebde6ea905f82130d4179f.jpg

Ooo what is that up ahead?

20180930142539_1.thumb.jpg.fb444869eec427f2ef0f9389664c93a4.jpg

Twister!

20180930142716_1.thumb.jpg.50791b5ecf4401c79960d4e8a747bdf6.jpg

The line was posted at 3 hours long

20180930142619_1.thumb.jpg.82b8fe321e7a3cc5e54f6e0e0e31a2c4.jpg

But Twister flys right above out heads to keep us entertained!

20180930142651_1.thumb.jpg.bd9941777ac02649ebb4dbc04c2d7862.jpg

This is my favorite shot

20180930142753_1.thumb.jpg.91f591a6a3a206205b989eb5fde90303.jpg

Up the lift it goes

20180930142938_1.thumb.jpg.62849a4b9350a6577cbeeb7be030efdc.jpg

I didn't take this shot just to show that I got the front row, but to also to show the perfectly framed shot of Cypress Plunge's drop from the exit

20180930143153_1.thumb.jpg.54c1a5719b0c40998e75c5d7105d2c70.jpg

Well, it was your basic Arrow corkscrew, but it actually had a helix at the end of the ride, which I think makes this particular model unique

20180930143515_1.thumb.jpg.4b11e5b5249f8d44721c64079b2e2af4.jpg

Rode the train to prove that this corkscrew had a helix at the end of the ride

20180930143522_1.thumb.jpg.a5e9b59263fa6519142f7339055c261f.jpg

And here's Twister's train!

20180930144054_1.thumb.jpg.c6881d97c4853eec89839b2e40505a7a.jpg

And I'm ending this report with a shot of Twister from Skyrama! See you next time!

October 1979

 

Wanted to make a quick trip report before the off season, and I noticed something new!

I noticed this new sign added before the final drop

20181008195017_1.thumb.jpg.72af06ce98d3e230f7e87e3071ff2ce9.jpg

The log flume was open for some reason, so I decided why not

I've got NO guesses on the new coaster... But what ever it is, I look forward to seeing it come together!!

 

I LOVE the Twister sign. It looks amazing! Great job.

 

I didn't take this shot just to show that I got the front row, but to also to show the perfectly framed shot of Cypress Plunge's drop from the exit

 

Okay, that's freaking awesome the way it frames Cypress Plunge's drop. Nice touch.

 

Can't wait to see more.

April 1980

 

Well, It's the start of the 3rd season for Cypress Adventures, I purchased a new camera sometime in February and I wanted to try it out here! While I was there, I noticed a few things added to the park this visit.

20181008200530_1.thumb.jpg.8743fd2c3f11c7a4f686a448fa45f603.jpg

New for this year was Octopus, a thrilling flat ride which is fun for the whole family!

20181008200554_1.thumb.jpg.ea06ac017afe04a26f66c7cebbbc496f.jpg

It isn't ready to open yet (hence the blocked off entrance in the first photo), but I look forward to riding it later this year!

20181009205159_1.thumb.jpg.bf6ab04a62a8ee85fffebeea159fbb58.jpg

Random Fantasy Village building

20181009211055_1.thumb.jpg.2df7aaf935c7434bc4596f16cde1762e.jpg

A new (blocked off) Bridge was built near the Fantasy Village train station. I believe they are planning on expanding the park within the next 2-3 years!

20181009211124_1.thumb.jpg.db3c06685ef84bb80778219cb3aab932.jpg

I heard that the Castle Crash bumper cars may be removed at the end of the year to make way for a new ride

20181009211336_1.thumb.jpg.5dd75ce88b6c3ceb3d13fbd910a26228.jpg

So I decided to take one last ride on it. It really does have a "temporary" feel to it, like the ride was built, but the building was meant for something else.

20181009211713_1.thumb.jpg.40d5fe3248d6241a4950634c050414c2.jpg

Castle Crash exit

20181009211727_1.thumb.jpg.bc7203c81a332ab59f8e6da616091fed.jpg

Someone should make this photo a postcard for the park. (Heck, the park should hire me for postcard photos!)

20181009211858_1.thumb.jpg.2ff47e3c147243424f025541be9ac1d5.jpg

Twister is always worth the wait!

20181009212303_1.thumb.jpg.f7816948012f7c76105a92515d9bbbdd.jpg

And I ended my day with a ride on the still popular Runaway Express! See you when Octopus opens!

Quick update on this park, I just can't get enough!

20181011210358_1.thumb.jpg.d7c052a752b8108372554b0fa683c798.jpg

Surprisingly, a month after Octopus opened, it lost its "new ride" popularity

20181011210444_1.thumb.jpg.6e007786e68cd3e99359c3253c429287.jpg

Close look at the cars

20181011205725_1.thumb.jpg.7522cebc04f94d14509c71a36034c1a0.jpg

The rumors are true, Castle Crash was closed. I wonder what they will put in its place

20181011211026_1.thumb.jpg.5e52b43278e0cd42e9e26096312fb042.jpg

Another postcard worthy shot

Up the lift it goes

20181011211458_1.thumb.jpg.0491a03292eb785430fab1b7f74f80ae.jpg

There was hardly a line for Runaway Express, so I caught a ride on it on the way out!

June 1981

 

Checking out the new Castle expansion to Fantas- I mean Medieval Times. Here's my report from today.

20181024205140_1.thumb.jpg.8a7242eaeb2b5734e10a51812ae5c60b.jpg

20181024205404_1.thumb.jpg.57aa24088fc41c2fb885b20ba05c491e.jpg

Some activity around the old Castle Crash ride. This arch wasn't here before

20181024205417_1.thumb.jpg.378ba27df3553cab3dddc169904160cf.jpg

Some additional theme pieces added to the queue. I really wonder what they're doing here. Only time will tell I guess

20181024205531_1.thumb.jpg.9f9c66b22e6467ea142f98b2b89416aa.jpg

Dragon Run's ride program was allowing 2 laps this time instead of one. It just made the line longer in my opinion

20181024205549_1.thumb.jpg.9aa132841a03ae0ccb8394dc411e30ab.jpg

New path now unblocked!

20181024210133_1.thumb.jpg.ea98daa3fed737ea3c1e3e2eb44234cf.jpg

That's all! Until next time!

Coming in October 1981!

 

Originally a 1982 addition, Cypress Adventure's Owners, Max and Rolfe Geffrey, decided it would be more fitting to open their new ride, Castle of Horror, early in October, which is also the last month of the season. Replacing the bumper cars attraction, Castle Crash, Castle of Horror will take you through an abandoned castle where your worst fear lives. Do you dare ride?

Well they opened their 1982 addition a little early. The former Castle Crash bumper cars has been transformed into a haunted house dark ride. Let's check it out shall we?

20181031212806_1.thumb.jpg.c4104bcbee9611b3f602f0e60283e6b1.jpg

I honestly never seen the park THIS crowded!

20181031212823_1.thumb.jpg.752ef75ab03f0e4fce2a74448499d8cf.jpg

Everyone wants to ride Castle of Horror!

20181031212845_1.thumb.jpg.7f94058eda13d1ba349f4f66614b98da.jpg

Line is posted to be at 265 minutes. Gonna be here a while...

20181031212858_1.thumb.jpg.6d9858034e299e3265927cd8b2cd2d09.jpg

They reused the Castle Crash queue. It's just covered now

I spent so much time in that queue that it's already night!

20181031213414_1.thumb.jpg.ca457f0d2edd504d705119fe71af1816.jpg

Decided to take a night ride on Twister before I left!

March 1982

 

First day of operation for the 1982 season! The off season felt like it took forever, Here's my trip report:

20181103213507_1.thumb.jpg.c5d129bd466651320235a9b923a43ada.jpg

They updated the entrance sign

No one cares that much about octopus...

20181103213928_1.thumb.jpg.fe1927fca969cc12c923160841f75a57.jpg

I stopped to get a smoothie and this guy was awesome! He's very friendly!

20181103213948_1.thumb.jpg.73e63b6b90ede1ff7ecbca5cf7e32bb2.jpg

I'm starting to think Dragon Run is too popular

20181103214113_1.thumb.jpg.d3eac437f2b05109a606df4aaf3a9a54.jpg

Also I should mention that it was VERY crowded today

20181103214218_1.thumb.jpg.423b70823055c1c5b7a1f3baf1f8e48a.jpg

I think I'll skip Castle of Horror due to the long line...

20181103214340_1.thumb.jpg.1e122c39d0b47ea8d0bffd7beed038a4.jpg

I decided to ride skyrama since I haven't been on it in a while

Just a small report, but a major coaster is being built! I can't wait to ride it when it opens!

20181104180633_1.thumb.jpg.e80f7547e7a3d55082e2fc0e117a8e00.jpg

Cypress Plunge is always a must on a hot day

Decided to ride the 2nd level of the carousel

20181104170238_1.thumb.jpg.cc9a58414ded34cd4d1485db5f5f8de1.jpg

So much has been built since last time!

The soon to be signature coaster of the park peeking through the trees!

August 1982

 

Announcement for Cypress Adventure's new coaster happened today! I made sure to show up early so I can witness the announcement up close. They announced the new coaster's name and showed off a few concept art of the coaster itself, but not the layout.

20181105212825_1.thumb.jpg.b3013137610a62466bf40bf3cd9f5bfd.jpg

The owners explains about how excited they are to announce the new coaster!

20181105213047_1.thumb.jpg.2d635ded4501143c91d8f20dc759dd55.jpg

There was a lot of confetti as they revealed the name of the coaster

April 1983

 

Well Excalibur has been open for 2 weeks now, but I wasn't able to get there until today due to my job.

 

My thoughts on Excalibur: Awesome! The coaster has some great pops of airtime, especially since it's nothing but airtime hill after airtime hill. The trick track is kind of a unique element, but it doesn't add much to the experience. I highly recommend riding Excalibur in the back row!

 

Here's my report:

20181121202506_1.thumb.jpg.1b862d7d77fc3a0f10925164bdd49849.jpg

Octopus is closed off and has its signage removed.

20181121202606_1.thumb.jpg.ce47e35f66d867c0faab52bc86b3339b.jpg

I wonder where this crowd is heading to

20181121202640_1.thumb.jpg.ba0eb7db9972f55a00eb63e97db1ed75.jpg

20181121202708_1.thumb.jpg.74660dbecb4e07081ddbb15a85e2eead.jpg

No more walls blocking off the Excalibur section!

20181121202756_1.thumb.jpg.5cdf775addf6065c3913819438b5347e.jpg

Excalibur's entrance

20181121202855_1.thumb.jpg.417b64152993968b775c173aa2a90331.jpg

You can only see the lift from the queue

20181121202906_1.thumb.jpg.0da7484ec7643077babb66965d3e587e.jpg

This photo shows how long the line is

You can see most of the layout in this shot

20181121203130_1.thumb.jpg.559c269c99c022d152a891a68675c3ad.jpg

the trick track section

20181121203450_1.thumb.jpg.89d80b0ba77042d24e4897fef2a277eb.jpg

I decided to check if Excalibur affected the other coasters popularity, Twister's line has gotten a bit shorter, but it's still a popular ride

20181121203544_1.thumb.jpg.363b47d081a4d223a3bb17c6d2b25369.jpg

Runaway Express is still very popular! Makes sense since this is the only coaster that families can enjoy due to the 42" height. Excalibur and Twister are both 48" rides.

20181121203732_1.thumb.jpg.a26ad75e0189dad249c96d4a4bfc1b99.jpg

Ending this report on this shot of Excalibur. I'll be waiting for the back row now.

July 1983

 

I'm starting to hear rumors that Cypress Adventures is starting to do poorly financially and they closed some rides to save some money. I decided to check out the park to see what has changed.

20181126132057_1.thumb.jpg.2ac1aad8cc67ce0b9c37d8db637a1016.jpg

Octopus and its queue was removed.

20181126132812_1.thumb.jpg.21fe8aaedd8bf47a2b61be99309e0ef7.jpg

On my way to grab some lunch at Joe's Tavern, I saw that they're teasing a 1984 addition. I don't know if they are making a good choice to push a new addition for next year, I guess we'll see soon.

20181126132905_1.thumb.jpg.82b5df51f73e7b96b9a51423b5ffde73.jpg

I think I'll skip Excalibur this trip...

20181126132942_1.thumb.jpg.dcf8968d9c30a03d482522ae110011f4.jpg

Big Wheel was closed

20181126133440_1.thumb.jpg.1d3d7edbb81c74b47bbcd70e5e4cad94.jpg

Runaway Express just reopened after a breakdown, so I took advantage of the empty line

20181126133135_1.thumb.jpg.8a2ab59730341c52e8194c490fd2984e.jpg

Rodeo was also closed.

20181126133555_1.thumb.jpg.aaa381318d8ad54b8d267b29faa9ceef.jpg

Rode Gunslinger before leaving. See you next time
