Check out this crazy ride! The drop is steeper than 90

Just though this ride looked cool. http://youtube.com/watch?v=-FxeUp8SgUc
There are quite a number of roller coasters that have drops steeper than 90-degrees.

My video is of the second coaster in your list. *** Edited 12/5/2006 4:26:34 AM UTC by david m***

These are the Gerstlauer Eurofighter coasters. You may have heard more about them recently as the Mall of America wants to put one in there for 2008, and Dollywood is currently building a more elaborate version called Mystery Mine.

Yup! There's definitely some airtime going over the first bunny hill. I saw a picture of a car going over the bunny hill and all the road wheels were off the track! The only thing stopping them was the upstop wheels.

EDIT: Found that picture over on RCDB. Here's the link:

It's a truly amazing picture- would bring a tear to an airtime junkie! :) *** Edited 12/10/2006 3:37:18 PM UTC by RCoasterNY***

I think this thing might beat all of those with angles. I seems to go into the lift. Anyone else ever see the Screamin Squirrel

Yes, most everyone has. What is WITH this latest "crop"? Methinks I need to quit reading until the Banhamma(TM) has a chance to make its presence known ...

That's Just hope their not to bumby, their not that tall but have a steep drop.
Dunno 'gator, wait a little while, if all things go right, CoasterKid85 or Audioslaved might be able to give you a trip report about it ;)

Well, that's what they're there for.
