Do you guys think Millennium Force should be considered a Giga-Twister? It really doesnt have the classic out and back design of most big steel coasters, yet there isnt a helix.

Just call it a "Freeform" coaster.

Well, I think, in a way you could consider it a double out and back twister hybrid.

Out-Up the lift hill, down the first drop, up the second hill
Back-Down second hill towards station
Out-Turns left away from from station, over the hill, and does it's twisty thing out on the island.
Back-Over another hill towards the station, and turns left for it's last hill and break run.

I'll stick with freeform also.

A true giga twister would be a very scary thing.
Just think 90 mph straight into a huge helix and then corkscrews and vertical loops.

Millenium Force is not a giga twister. How many times does it cross over or under itself? I don't belive it does at all. To get an idea of a giga-twister, think Raging Bull +100 feet! That would be a wicked ride!

It goes under itself on the island right before the second lagoon hop

Oh. I guess I was wrong. I wanna change my story now... How about this: To be a twister, it has to go over and under itself many times! :-P

Actually, MF goes over and under itself 3 times on the island if you want to get technical. I wouldn't call it a twister though. I like free form coaster, that fits.

It's a Giga-Coaster. Does it need another name or classification?
