The Whirlwind opened in April 1984 in the space just east of Jet Star 2. This was the same location as three other Huss rides that were at the park for a short time. Tri-Star was located there from 1979-1981 and moved west across the Midway when UFO took that space in 1982. The Whirlwind operated there for the 1984 season followed by Cyclone in 1985. Tri-Star then returned to that location until 1990 when it was removed.
