I Need to Know Tonight!!!!

Wednesday, May 2, 2001 10:40 AM
Hey, its time for you to do some thinking!!! Can anyone tell me a wooden coaster that doesn't use trims on the first drop? If you know, I also need the height and speed of it. Remember its important. I need 5 wooden coasters. I need to know tonight!

I am puzzled. Seems to me I don't see trims on woodies I have been on. Naive of me? Yow, I hope not! I have ridden my share and maybe some do. But take Boulder Dash for instance. I just remember it really rips down its curving first drop (114') and gets going to 60+ mph. Trims? None that I could see and none on the hill the drop leads to. Maybe even none on the ride at all (this is getting away from me!).
Please tell me it ain't so for most woodies.
oh well a touch of grey kind of suits you anyway

Not many woodies have trims on the first drop. Just don't pick a Dinn/Summers woodie, and it probably won't have trims on the first drop.

Mean Streak? You've got to be kidding. That has some of the most severe brakes on the first drop of any coaster I have ever been on.

I know for sure in New York:

Silver Comet- Martin's Fantasy Island
The Predator- Six Flags Darien Lake
The Comet- The Great Escape.

Neither of those coasters use trim breaks.
