Best Footchoppers

Wednesday, January 8, 2003 10:30 AM

Okay, we all know that most Inverted coasters have footchoppers. But what are some of the closest or some of your favorites?

Mine is probably Wicked Twister. I had to pull my feet up each time the train went into the station from the back tower because I could have sworn that my feet were going to hit that loading platform!

Believe it or not, this is where the much-hated SLC shines.

Antuan, Not every SLC has the FOOT CHOPPER moment, That element is missing from SFKK's T2

Chuck, who is strange and actually likes SLC's because they toss you about a bit and of course have the foot chopper

Is it about coasters or friends? I say both!

Really? Im surprised by that. I would have thought that most Impulses would because they do not have retracting floors on their stations.

Great Bear and Talon have some pretty nice footchoppers in their trenches.

I wouldn't say that T2 has *no* footchoppers. They might not be extreme, but I definatly get a little anxious on the stretch of track after the drop.

The supports on Tornado are pretty scary. And there are some trees pretty close to Batman La Fuga as well. But let's not forget the waterfalls on Nemesis. I like the support-action on El Condor as well.

Ya know that scene in Jurassic Park where the girl falls through the ceiling tile and the veloceraptor jumps up at her as she's being pulled back to safety? I instinctively pulled my feet up at the same moment!

Moosh - also votes for the SLCs.

The castle wall on Ice has to be the best, IMO, followed by the "station fly-by" on the SLCs.

And for the record, T2 @ SFKK is the only coaster where I've actually *hit* my feet/legs on something (do they EVER mow the grass right before the station?)

Grass after the station? I think you mean the trees that have evolved from the lack of lawn mowers. Though, I would have to say I got a little worried about those 10 little piggies dangling below me while riding T2. I think they all where going Wa, Wa, Wa and not even going home.

I like Alpengeist when you go through the little shack thing. And through the ravine near the end. ( I think it's near the end, it's been about 5 years since I have ridden it. Or whatever year it opened. I don't know).

I found Serial Thriller at SFWOA to have awesome footchoppers. Another great footchopper is the wooden valley ramp on Deja Vu at SFGAm when you are in row 1a or 1b.

Any Vekoma SLC has the best Footchoppers in my book.

Otherwise if the Arrow suspenededs like Iron Dragon and XLR-8 got floorless cars they would have better footchoppers than the SLC's.

I can't decide is it BGW or SDC/CC.

No, I mean *before* the station as in the run between the transfer track and the station house. My legs were swimming in weeds :)
