What if there was a coaster like X but you always stayed righside up? Like the first drop would be vertical like a drop tower. Then your seat doesnt spin so it would be crazy through like loops and corkcscrews. You would never go upsidedown. IT would be awesome.

Actually RollrCoastr00, X's drop is kind of like that I think.

u would go backwards down the first drop....unless u leave the station backwards

I've thought about something similar to that.
the train would be bottom heavy and could be both regular and inverted in that if you went through a loop at the top of the loop it would straighten out like an immelman.The train would be like an inverted train but the passengers would be going backwards.this could also be done in the reverse. the track could already be inverted drop downunder itself and go in the opposite direction now on top of the track with passengers going in the opposite direction they were.
with bottom heavy trains you would rock alot but only flip if you hit a loop fast or drop fast.
I think X will probbably be alot like this

Nitro 2k1, X does leave the station and drop backwards too.

joey isch, the Seizmic (sp?) coaster isn't quite like that. It rides a little like X, except absolutly no seat spinning. It constantly stays in the same position, like any standard inverted, except the seats are to the side of the track. For some reason, I want to think it accually is 2 trains that can separate at points. Does anyone know if thats true, or am I dreaming?
ExForceCoaster, you don't need to tell us you're relived that this isn't anime boy's topic. If you are, good, just don't feel as though you must point that out.
Hey, SFGAm management, can I buy a couple cages of Sky Whirl?

How about a 4D + Flying coaster hybrid ? You would be in the flying position, but the seats would rotate on a heartline axis, rather than a summersault axis (like a barrel roll).
Current favorite coasters:
Wooden: 1) Beast 2) Raven 3) Son of Beast 4) The Boss 5) Timber Wolf
Steel: 1) Raging Bull 2) Millennium Force 3) V2 4) Wild Thing 5) Mr. Freeze
