Windjammer was quite unique, a bit rough on the ears, but not too bad. I can't think of another coaster quite like it. Too bad about the rollback problem.

I love the Manhattan Express. Too bad it costs $10 per ride.

What else has TOGO made?

Togo also made the Viper at SFGadv, which is a twister style coaster. (A twister coaster is one with little cars which can twist 360 degrees in a straight track, but most of these can't do turns, the cars simply go up an incline, and then go through a different section backwards).

Long Live Cedar Fair :)

King Cobra at PKI and Shockwave at PKD... ugh. No wonder the guy jumped off of Shockwave last year.

To say that the Manhatten Express is brutal is an understatement. I'll never go on it again. Besides,didn't they build the Windjammer at Knott's? That ride is going to be just so much scrap iron soon from what I've read in the trades.

Yes, say "buh-bye" to the Windjammer at KBF. If you have not yet ridden, too late! I am sure they would sell it, I don't think there are any buyers out there. Hey... maybe you could enclose it in a building, re-theme it like a space dock...wait a minute, we don't need 2 of those. (just kidding DT fans...) Actually, enclosing it would make wind a non-factor, the wind is what was causing the rollbacks, right?

Actually, if the law suit if settled in their favor, TOGO will have to remove the ride themselves in addition to giving them a large sum of money. Talk about adding insult to injury!

Only TOGO I ever rode was King Cobra. Rode it six times in a row without having to get off. Nine times total in two days. Loved every second of it.
To me King Cobra is better than Mantis.

I have been on the King Cobra, it is also called the Sky Rider at Paramount's Canada's Wonderland. CLONE!!!! I will be calm about this. How can the King Cobra possibly be better tyhen the Mantis? It only has one type of inversion. The only thing it has that the Mantis doesn't is that little helix. All of Mantis' high speed "whip" turns make up for that. Then King Cobra hass all of those pointless bunny hills. (Since when are stand-ups for airtime?) I think Mantis' 3 other inversions make up for that. Now, just asking(I know it is somebody's opinion) seriously, you really think it is better, MFBound??

I think you are combining Viper and UltraTwister (now in Texas)
Viper is an oval configuration with heartline rolls, and does not go backwards.
