My girlfriend Jamie is taking this class for her mechanical engineering degree, and
book. Anyone know what coaster it is? *** Edited 6/6/2007 12:07:42 AM UTC by Jeff Young***

Medusa at Gadv.

Looks like Chang at SFKK before it was repainted to yellow track and blue supports. Presuming that's a stand-up train (and it looks that way to me). *** Edited 6/6/2007 12:12:13 AM UTC by prabe***

On my Algebra two book there is a picture of some Schwarzkopf coaster and I have always wondered what which one it was.

I think I'm going with prabe on this one. Based on the support you see in the top right corner I don't think it could be medusa. I think it's the inclined loop on Chang with the coaster going away from you on the cover of the book.
It's sorta hard to tell if the train is coming or going. If it is coming toward us, then it can't be chang either. *** Edited 6/6/2007 12:35:49 AM UTC by Jason Hammond***

Yep, and I think that's my brother's picture. We have several others on textbook covers...it's pretty cool :)

I see an Arrow mine train in the background... It's gotta be Medusa.

Well, now that I'm looking at it again, I guess it could be the first half of the Cobra roll on Medusa. I guess if it were Chang, you'd be able to see more of itself in the background.
You've got a good eye Donald. *** Edited 6/6/2007 12:56:14 AM UTC by Jason Hammond***

Theirs the Great American Scream Machine ( SFGAD ) in my math book. As for the book it looks as though the guest are standing so I would say that it is Chang. *** Edited 6/6/2007 1:02:39 AM UTC by Coasterkid200***

Colors can be easily manipulated in Photoshop. It's Medusa. This topic has come up before.

There are also clearly trees in that picture, which easily eliminates SFKK.

It's absolutely a floorless. If the train is coming at us then then is no lead car and it can't be stand up. If the train is going away from us, it's performing an Immelman (or variation) and no stand ups do that.
Medusa for the win.

The train is entering the cobra roll, going away from the camera.

What is Medusa at SFGA

Bookmark it, Audioslaved :)

I believe that the coaster on the cover of the algebra 2 book is actually that steel at Castles N Coasters in Arizona if I remember that correctly. Its been quite a few years now.
I could be wrong.
This pic definitely looks like a floorless train though.

There's a hand drawn coaster loop on my Entry-level Engineering Dynamics book. Typical Arrow style track. Made me not want to study it because if Arrow is associated you know it might be a 'shaky' read (I'm hilarious!)

You can click for a larger image on Jeff's original post link too.

Amazons larger image is larger. But I did not know you could click on that at B&N.
