Loop-to-coaster ratio

Thursday, March 22, 2001 6:06 AM
What park do you think has the most coasters, but with the fewest loops? What park has the most loops with the fewest coasters?

These are just guesses, but I would say Kennywood (5 coasters, O loops), and for the latter question, perhaps BGW or Port Aventura.

Most inversions with fewest coasters=BGT with 17 inversions and 5 coasters.

Most coasters with the least inversions=Kennywood.

The highest loop to coaster ratio would be Terra Encantada, which has 1 coaster and 8 inversions. The least would be all the parks without a coaster that inverts...

Check out http://www.rcdb.com , it has a feature on the number of loops in a park.

Actually Everdred Terra Encantada has a kid coaster Piui or something like that. so then that would make it 4inversions for 2 coasters. The most I found was Sea World Florida which has one coaster Kraken that has 7 inversions. Unless you count JTA. Then IoA would have the most with 4.25 inversions per coaster. Man, I have NO life. lol.

I'd noticed that every coaster (except Gwazi, which wasn't open when I was last there) at BGT has inversions, whereas out of the 14 coasters at CP, only 3 have inversions. I've wondered why CP doesn't build more coasters that would attract the inversion-bound, but I do like the wide variety they have. I would think that a park that offered nothing but coasters with inversions/loops would lose some business from those riders that would rather stay upright.

IOA also has 5 coasters with 17 inversions. However, 2 of those are little bitty coasters. Oh well...guess they count. :)

IOA also has the most 'inverteds' / coaster ratio, with wither 50% or 60% depending on how you count Dueling Dragons.

Most coasters with the fewest loops? How about Blackpool Pleasure Beach? Eleven roller coasters, and a total of one loop.
