A TRIBUTE TO
WILLIAM L. COBB
The Arkansas Twister is one of William L. "Bill" Cobb's many masterpieces in roller coaster engineering. Shotly before his death on Dec. 17, 1990, Mr. Cobb assisted Magic Springs in the early phases of relocateing this classic "Out and Back" style woodie from Boardwalk & Baseball in Florida.
The Twister is just one of the many wooden coasters in the world that Mr. Cobb either designed or engineered, includeing Judge Roy Scream at Six Flags Over Texas, and Le Monster in Canada.
The excitement you are about to experience is part of the "Cobb Legend" known worldwide.
Thanks, Mr. Cobb, for the thrill.
