12 coasters?

Friday, May 10, 2002 1:23 PM

On the SFGAm commercial they show V2 and Deja Vu and say "with our two world class coasters that makes 12 amazing coasters in one park" What is the 12th coaster? Lets see going around the park clockwise we have

1. Shockwave
2. Batman TR
3. V2
4. Spacely's Sprocket Rockets
5. Iron Wolf
6. American Eagle
7. Deja Vu
8. Demon
9. Whizzer
10. Raging Bull
11. Viper
12. ?

What are they referring to as their twelfth coaster? Do any other park maybe add in a drop tower as a coaster? How can they false advertise like that?

You are correct, RCDB lists only 11.

American Eagle as two. Classic marketing.

I wondered about that myself. Maybe they're counting both sides of the Eagle.

Carowinds does the same thing, saying they have 11 coasters, but even couting Thunder Road as 2 I still only get 10.

I think racers count as two, but that's just my opinion.

I personally count Eagle as two separate coasters, as the return legs are completely different.

Carowinds has 10 coasters (counting Thunder Road once):

Taxi Jam, Ghoster Coaster, Top Gun, Vortex, Cyclone, Thunder Road, Ricochet, Super Saturator, Mine Train, and Hurler.

While this is a classic coaster-geek type of arguement. I find myself compelled to reply every time i see it.

I feel that Racing coasters are only to be counted as one ride. One station, one ride. But then again i don't think that Superman at SFMM is a coaster, but the Superman at SFWOA is....

i only think they count racers if they are 2 seperate circuits, not a mobius where the train goes to the other station each time. although, SFMM colossus and superman are counted as one ride, so if they wanted to get really dirty they could say they have 17 coasters and kill Cedar Point, but i thnk they wont do it, besides, cedar point has a racer as well, Gemini, oh well.
