I did say in past posts that I would look for some decent photos of the Tornado well my looking turned out some photos way more than decent maybe even the best.http://members.aol.com/bobcoaster/churchtwo.html
scroll down a little and they will be on the page.
Truly this should be considered the best looking coaster, I don't know of any other coasters built entirely on top of buildings.

Well it's not entirely on top of buildings, but the new Thunder Dolphin at Korakuen Amusement Park in Tokyo is pretty darn close.

Every coaster at IB is on top of something ;)

Hurricane, Corny, and Tigg'r all have buildings under them.

I love how Thunder Dolphin goes through the middle of the Ferris Wheel there, but come on - how lame is that name?

Yeah those are on top of buildings, but they also were designed with the buildings, Tornado had the buildings there and had to be designed to what was there already there.
Also this coaster was great because of its tight high speed turns in a tiny compact area. Where Thunder Dolphin is large and spread out.
