Longest RollerCoaster train in the world?

Does anyone know which ride has the longest train in the entire world?

Not off hand. I rode Nightmare at Boblo back in the day and I remember it had an incredibly long train, like 40 seats or something outlandish. The length of the train, turns out, did the ride no favors.
I rode it again after it was moved to Six Flags in Houston but I believe the train was cut down in length considerably. Still, not a very good ride.
Now it lives outdoors In Amarillo at Wonderland as the Hornet. I haven't ridden it, RCDB lists all three rides as having 12 cars, but Nightmare's train was definitely longer much longer.

It's one of your beloved Vekoma rides, but you knew that already.

How's that for a non-answer answer?

Chaos at Opryland also had a 40 car train, accommodating 80 riders.

Every time I ride Blackbeard at GrAdv, I wonder about that. It certainly doesn't have 40 cars, but that damn thing seems to cover more than half the total track length!

I know it's not the longest, but the new design on the B+M hypers is pretty freaking long

The Vekoma Illusion rides have 40 car trains.

You might want to read that webpage again, Bannister. It says, "Trains:Single train with 30 cars. Riders are arranged inline in 2 rows for a total of 60 riders."

Let me rephrase. One of the two Illusions had a 40 car train:

I was always told length doesn't matter.

So which coaster train has the biggest girth?

Girth is where it's at. That's what "they" say.

It's certainly "what SHE said" at least. *laugh*

Isn't El Toro a pretty long train? It always seems to be.

I would venture a guess that it's probably Griffon.
