First Overbanked Turn

Tuesday, November 5, 2002 4:04 PM
I was wondering what was the first overbanked turn was. I know about DF's crossback, but was that the first or were there others before?

-----------------
I talked with the Dippin' Dots guy and he assured me that Cedar Point was to get that 10-inversion terra-woodie-invert-stand-up because Magnum is sinking. The current construction is for the new super-Dippin' Dots stall he is to run.

I am guessing Freeze's, but I am really not sure.

I would say that the cutback on DF is a full inversion. Doesnt Orient Express at Worlds of fun feature this inversion as well? Another one could be found on Space Mountain at DLP.

With "0verbanked turn" do you mean an element like the ones on MF and Mr Freeze? In this case, I think that the inverted coasters are the first to feature this element. EUROSTAR (the mobile inverter by Giovanola) features an overbanked turn after the first loop, before it hits the zero-g-roll. This was built in 1995.

Orient Express feature a Kamikaze Curve, which later became known as the Boomerang, which can be found on SFGAdv's GASM, SFMM's Viper, and SFGAm's former Shockwave.

You mean "Viper" not "Predator" at SFDL.

The old Arrow/Vekoma portable coasters such as the one at Kneobles are quite old (well, old-ish) and have a really nasty overbank.
