Different features

Thursday, February 14, 2002 10:58 AM
What are some different features on roller coasters you've been on?  Example:I've never been on it, but Tremors has a gift shop it goes through.  Some others I can think of are head choppers and tunnels.  Superman has two mist filled tunnels.  What are some?  What are  your favorites?

just this week, I have fallen in love with Fire Dragon, so I'll say the sharply dropping downward-helix on that ride creates the kind of positive Gs I'm used to finding only in Schwarzkops...(oh and the Big G, Goliath)...

Hulk and TG:TJC both have nice tunnels under walkways where the fog/mist is great...but being a flat-lander, I'm really jealous of the Northerners and their subterranean tunnels...

Another one I thought of-the tunnel on Anaconda (??) at PKD.  I believe it's an underwater underground tunnel.  I saw a picture in Guide To Ride, and it looked pretty cool.

Krakons waterfall/underground tunnel turnaround is really fun.

That part of Ran-a-way Mine Train is cool, but I was more surprised and delighted by the trip through the old saloon / drop / headchopper. What an unexpected treat!

Later,

In RCT, I remember using walls next to cutbacks to give you the feeling of bouncing right off of it.  Are there any coasters with such a feature?

 Well, the Drachen fire was originally the only coaster in the world that, I know of, that had a cutback on it, and it didn't have a wall though. ;)

The curve before the helix on Nitro is very disorienting
