Cyclone is a 1000% better pin than comet, better gameplay, better art, and better sounds, better playfield toys,ramps,ferris wheel. Go cyclone!
C'mon now Erik.... 1000%?
Alright here is my diatribe about the *coaster* pins...... Ready?
I played a butt load of Comet in the mid 80's. Enough, in fact, to make sure I had one in the collection. On a side note, my mom used to go to Riverview park when she was little. She really didn't remember the Comet ride, but she did remember the parachute thingys....I seriously think Rivervire would've gave Gurnee Great America a run for the money if it were still around!
The artwork and sound calls are basically the same, but I'll compare the two... First is Comet.... You get the corkscrew ramp on the left (very cool design), the main Comet ramp, and the Cycle jump ramp.....And how can I forget the "million" shot! Which I think is one of the best shots in a pin!
Now to Cyclone.... You get the Ferris wheel (cool eye candy), the Comet/Cyclone ramp and a skill shot and a backglass wheel.....
Like I said previously, I like Cyclone a tad better but Comet is real close! If Cylcone had a better interpetaion of the *Million* shot; it would've made it better.....
Man, I'm tired!
