HistoryEdit

Arkansas Twister debuted at Boardwalk and Baseball in Haines City, Florida, USA, and was called the Roaring Tiger. It was briefly renamed to Michael Jackson's Thrill Coaster, and again renamed to the Florida Hurricane, which opened on Febuary 14, 1987. The ride closed along with the park in 1990, and was bought by Magic Springs for $10,000.

The ride was rebuilt at it's current location by Martin & Vleminckx, the total cost of relocation was nearly $900,000. The ride debuted at the park on May 30, 1992, and shut again with the park in 1995. In 2000, the ride opened once again, and has been operating since.
