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:

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!

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:

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:

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.

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

Can't wait to see more.

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.
