Sunday, June 24, 2007 2:15 AM
I was curious: which steel and wooden coasters have the most tunnels? Thanks!

Doesn't Voyage have the most on a wood?

I was thinking Voyage also for wood. For steel, I am not sure.

Does Hades have the longest tunnel of any coaster?

The longest tunnel would either be Hades or Dragon Mountain I believe.

Big Thunder Mountain at Disneyland Paris got 4 or 5... The last one is very long! You get in the tunnel on the backside of the mountain, drop under the water, blast through a turn and then go up near the station in the final brakes.

What about Loch Ness and Beast for longest tunnel?

Yes Voyage has the most of any coaster. And Dragon Mountain in Niagara Falls has the most amount of tunnel length.

Accrding to Marineland website -

"Dragon Mountain also features more travel through tunnels - 1,163 feet - than any other coaster in the world."

According to Funworld Magazine, Hades' tunnel is 1400 feet long, meaning it has *far* more tunnelling action than Dragon Mountain.

Marineland just love to stretch or "forget to update" the truth. Between putting 300 feet combo towers on a hill and then claiming they're 450 feet towers and the dubious claims about Dragon Mountain, I would not exactly trust them!

For steel, what I can come up with, is California Screamin with 4 tunnels I believe. Also, Adventure Express at KI has 4 tunnels. I can't think of any coasters with 5.

Lochness has 1 tunnel nd Beast I believe has 2 tunnels, but I have no clue how long because you fly through both of them too fast to tell.

My only other coaster that I can think of it, Space Mountain at Disney. Even though the entire coaster is enclosed, if you've ridden it, it definitely has tunnels in it. But haven't been in a while, though.

Dragon Mountain at least held the most-tunneling track length for a long time. Could take the record back just by enclosing that weird helix....a theming project going on 25 years, LOL. ;)

Yes, but I was referring to steel coasters. Sorry man, put the whole quote in context. but i'll try to make it clearer to understand.

Big Thunder Mountain (DLP) got the following tunnels:

1-tunnel from station to top of lift A, you go under the river.

2-short tunnel between lift A and B

3-tunnel during the helix

4-another tunnel during the helix

5-short tunnel after the helix

6-headknocker tunnel before the C lift. Keep your hands down! I almost broke my right hand hitting the top of the entrance...

7-C lift, like in the states.

8-final tunnel where you turn, see some bats and then proceed to drop under the river, do an insane turn and then exit out on the main land. You then arrive in the final brakes.

That ride is amazing and at 4500 feet long, possibly the longest mine train in the world! *** Edited 6/25/2007 2:11:36 AM UTC by Absimilliard***

Tremors has four tunnels with the first one going under the gift shop.

I thought Voyage only had 3 tunnels.

Somewhat different approach for my answer. How about Flight of Fear which has 2705 feet of track?

I'll flip it and mention that the world's longest enclosed coaster is the boring "Temple of the Night Hawk" at Phantasialand. 4200 feet long with 3 lifts! Surprisingly, Vekoma built it in the late 80's.
