While the Z64 is not as common as the Z42 version, I have had the chance to ride three other copies of the Z64 Zyklon in addition to this one: One ride was Zyklon at Branson USA in Branson, Missouri in 2000 and 2001, but it ran as Zyklon at the Saginaw County Fairgrounds in Michigan from 2003 to 2006 before it was relocated once again and became Nebraska's largest coaster, the Big Ohhhh! at Omaha's Fun-Plex. A second example is El Bandido at Western Playland near El Paso, Texas, and I will be adding pictures of that ride later in January. The last copy operated as Zyklon at DelGrosso's Amusement Park in Tipton, Pennsylvania from 1987 to 2003. It did a stint as the Blue Diamond Streak at Blue Diamond Park in New Castle, Delaware until that park closed in 2007. Since 2013, it has been the Sand Blaster at Boardwalk Amusements in Daytona Beach, Florida.
