The Hoosier Hurricane, many dreamt of this coaster but few thought it was possible until 1994 when Indiana Beach made this dream come true. Read more in the editorial by Richard Zellner. Also see two dozen fantastic photos of the Hoosier Hurricane in the new Hoosier Hurricane Gallery, plus a new Lost Coaster of Superstition Mountian Gallery with pictures of the old mountain and some new pictures of the renovation in progress.

So is Superstition Mountain a coaster or just a gravity powered ride? RCDB does not list it as a coaster. I haven't been on it yet, so I don't have an opinion. What do you think?

It was part Gravity and part motorized with the same kind of drive system that is on the Den Of lost Theves ride at IB.
Beer, My Baby, and Coasters. Is this a great country or what? ;)

'The Underground' is listed as a coaster. I suspect this one will be, too. It's also gravity powered, as far as I know.

Superstition Mountain was originally a motor powered ride. Each car had a motor. There was one section where is coasted over the water, but is was not classified as a coaster. The Superstition Mountain is being renovated, the new ride is an indoor coaster. Much of the ride will be outdoor as well. When the new ride by CCI is done I am sure that it will be listed in rcdb as a roller coaster.

Sorry to sound uninterested, but, this website has a picture of naked people riding a Top-Spin like ride in Australia! And you can increase the size of the picture! Those crazy Australians.

The naked people are not on my site, I just have a news link to another site with naked people riding. The site is Theme Park Adventure Online and actually you don't sound uninterested Intamin Fan you must have clicked to increase the size of the picture to know how it worked. I think you found that somewhat interesting.

LOL! "You may lose your clothes on this ride". :) Hey that's a great Hurricane feature. Many of us have set it aside in light of the recent additions, but I still find it to be one of the best mild-mannered CCI's! It's nice to see how ideas develop.
