Hi, On my Physical science textbook there is a roller coaster. It has a white track and green supports. the supports are stripped yellow. I know for a fact its a Schwarzkopf because not only is the track indentical, but it only has lapbars which are yellow. I tryed to search for this but I couldnt find anything. Can someone help?

Don't be so sure! Sounds like Desert Storm to me, an OD Hopkins coaster. In fact, I think my brother took that picture. Does this look right? http://www.coastergallery.com/2001T/CnC.html

I do not belive that it is a Swartzkopf(sp?) actually. It is a Hopkins looper at Castles N' Coasters in Pheonix called Desert Storm.

I live only 30 mins away from that coaster, and you wouldn't believe how the locals marvel at it " It goes upside down, TWICE, and you go like 100 mles per hour !" It is funny.
Welcome one and all, y'all come have a ball!

I went to Sandusky, but there was no Callahan factory

My math book has Thunderbolt@Kennywood, Texas Giant, and Great American Scream Machine in it. IT also has another steel freeform coaster (track look like the Lisberghan), but all the people were wearing Yankees, Brooklyn, and Jets clothing. What coaster could that be?

Long ago, I had a math book too! :) Mine happily featured Valleyfair's Corkscrew, much to my delight.

I've got a picture of Montezuma's Revenge in MY physics book. There is also a lot of paint chips and drywall markings in it from me throwing the damn thing across the room so much.

I remember from high school that my physics book had a picture of SFoT's Shockwave, and also one o' those spiraling rides. I think they have one at Coney Island.
