Are there any parks with 3 or more inverted roller coasters?

I can think of two like SFWOA and Cedar Point but the only one with 3 is SFgam I think.

I think that suspendeds are not considered inverted to me at least because they to would be called inverted coasters not suspended coasters, so SFGAm, is all I can think of right now that does have 3 true inverted coasters to date.

Suspended coasters are totally different if you ask me. You can swing and there are no inversions.

Ah...there's a comment. Suspended coasters don't loop. Technically every SLC made is a Suspended seeing how that's the "S" in SLC. And all of them have 5 inversions. ;)

PKI has the record for the most rides where you ride under the track, Runaway Reptar, Top Gun, Scooby's Ghoster Coaster, and Face/Off

If you count suspended coasters, Kings Island has four with Top Gun, Face/Off, Runaway Reptar, and Ghoster Coaster.

Sorry for not being clear. I did mean inverted as in rigidly attatched cars. Not Arrow or Vekoma suspendeds.

Flying coasters have inverted sections, so counting that way would mean PGA, SFWoA, SFoG, and SFA have 3 inverteds (or if you get technical, 2 1/2 for the Dutchmen parks ;))

SFGAm will have 4 of them next year, if you consider a B&M Flyer as an Inverted (I would). That is, of course, if the rumors are true (I believe it).

Now let's see if SFGAm tries to market their new flyer as a "record breaking coaster" since they will then hold the record for "most inverted coasters in one park". I seriously wouldn't be surprised if they do. ;)

If we really want to be picky, we can't count Vekoma SLCs in this - as they are designed to swing (minimally though).

Each car is equipped with two hydrolics that act as springs. (http://www.totalthrills.com/images/slc.jpg - the red tubes) It is most aparent when the train comes out of the brakes and into the station - they slightly tilt through the corner. They are fixed with a hinge, and have the absorbers to reduce lateral forces.

Personally, if you include SLCs, then by definition, you should include the various suspended coasters (Swing Things, Arrow/Vekoma Suspendeds etc). And then, if you say they must have inversions, then there will be a bit of debate with the Impulses (except maybe the SFMW V2-V2.0). And don't you think it'd be getting a bit picky if you start having multiple criteria for a ride to count. ;) :)

So what if the best coaster in Australia is a second hand Arrow?

Intamin inverts have this too.

What is this confusion?
Suspended, like the Arrows, are train cars that hang, you get into something suspended below the track. The inverts, are trains with mostly just the seats hanging below. Suspended=cars hanging, inverted=seats hanging. There IS a difference, so I could never see the Arrow suspendeds being thought of as the same type of ride as the B&M inverts or any other invert.

I don't think the difference beetween seats and cars is a big deal. It's more the fact that they don't go upside down. The fact that it's below the track, instead of above it, is what makes it "suspended" so all "below the track" coasters are "suspended" coasters, to me. But the "inverts" are inverted in more way than one. They are opposite of a regular coaster, because they are under the track, and they actually "invert", as in go upside down. That is the major difference.

I think that regardless as long as it hangs under the track it counts. They are unique rides and should be both classifed as Suspended, because technically they both are suspended from the track.
