Somebody once mentioned an Outer Limits clone that was outside. I had never heard of it, so I went looking. Is it SFA's Joker's Jinx? The track length is identical, but the speeds and heights are different. Are they one and the same? I know that since JJ was made 3 years later the LIM quality could increase the speed, and terrain could make it higher. Can anyone help me out?

Actually I think there are more than 3 clones! There is Jokers Jinx, Poltergiest, Mad Conra, and I think theres another one! I think the speed was slighly increased on Poltergiest and Jokers Jinx. Also one of them doesnt have a block brake in the middle of the ride.

I was thinking the same thing when I first saw Joker's Jinx. The second half is nearly identical (without a block brake), but I think the first few inversions are a little different. Both are obviously Premier Rides rides, but I'm not sure.

I rode both Outer Limits and Jokers Junk. here's how I rate them from roughest to rough.
I don't know if it's the block brake missing or being outside but It doesn't seem as bad as the other two. They are all still headbangers.

Try out Poltergeist - It did not seem as rough as either Outer Limits rides... Im not sure why this is exactly. Maybe it was faster and/or I was expecting worse.
