most G's ever

Monday, March 5, 2001 4:01 PM
Well? What coaster allows you to experience the most G's? In the guiness book of records 2001, it says that the Mindbender has the most. (6.5?)
But then again, they could be wrong, so Im here to ask the experts!

Most G's lateral, vertical, negative?

I know that the Taz's Texas Tornado at Astroworld is UP there in Gs. Too bad Mr. Shwarzkoph never got to release his figure-eight design, that thing looked absolutely insane.

The old Meisho (Japanese Vekoma) Shuttle Loop Moonsault Scramble pulls about 5-6Gs. No wonder why as it's hills are 207' tall & the loops... well look for yourself!!!

That ride looks wicked. I cant believe Germany had that ride as a traveling coaster when they used it. Wow, its intense looking and very, very, very, very, colorful. Oh, did I mention it was very colorful? LOL. Take a look at this pic.

That's because Taz has CIRCULAR Loops! Schwartz must have been drunk when he designed it. ;)

Actually the loops are perfect spirals. Has anyone ridden it? I never puke from loops, but I reckon I would going through the first two loops. :) *** This post was edited by CoasterGod on 3/6/2001. ***

CoasterGod, that is how Schwartzkopf designed most of his loops.

Yeah I know, that was a joke as you can see from my :)

Has anyone been on Olympia Looping Bahn? From Schwartz official site, it pulls 5.2Gs. And in 1989 upon opening was and is still the first and only coaster to have FIVE Vertical Loops!

http://schwarzkopf.coaster.net/ESolympia-loopingGF.htm

Taz or as it used to be Thriller; http://schwarzkopf.coaster.net/ESthrillerGF.htm

The Gs are not listed. I wonder why? :);):)

The numbers vary, the highest I've seen are 6.5Gs for Mindbender, Moonsault Scramble and Dreier Looping (First Schwarzkopf triple-looper).

Damn CoasterGod, the Olympia Looping Bahn is wicked looking to, and also very,very,very,very colorful. It definitely looks like Schartzkopf traditional loops.

Yeah, Turn of the Century (Not sure if this one) pulled 12Gs & broke riders' necks!!!

Speaking of 12Gs, Jet Fighter Pilots routinely pull 12.5Gs when turning their jets around in just 500ft at 500mph. Don't forget they wear G-Suits. It's true!

Shockwave at SFOT pulls major G's. It has cicular loops too. People that ride in the front have said that they blacked out. But I always ride in the back for the air time.

Do check out this INSANE Schwarzkopf creation - Katapult. It's a Figure 8 coaster bent 90 degrees in the middle with a Horizontal Loop & a Vertical Loop. It's propelled by their traditional friction wheels along the whole track except for the top half of the loop. Also is the only Schwarzkopf coaster to have a 9 car train = 36 people.

http://schwarzkopf.coaster.net/ESkatapultGF.htm

I don't know what the Gs are, but once the train has hit it's top speed there's got to be heaps of lateral Gs in the Horizontal Loop as it's not banked very steeply. Ouch, my neck hurts! Loading/unloading's got to be a pain!

Well, I guess we can all agree that Shwarzkoph's coasters have the most g's!

Becuase the Mindbender is a Shwarzkoph design too.

He was the king of G's!

Yes, I've been on many Schwarzkopfs. Of all the rides I've been on, I'd have to say Mindbender in the edmonton mall pulls the most incredible amount of g's through the third loop. I wish I could have gone on Taz's texas tornado, but it was closed when I was at astroworld :( So, I don't know, but mindbender definitely pulls more than goliath, or any other Schwarzkopf I've been on.

Texas Tornado (not Taz Texas Tornado anymore) reportledly pulls 6.5 G briefly.

Still, my experience on Goliath's helix seemed more intense. It was less G, but over a much longer span of time.

Schwarzkopf coasters are great! They all have phenomenal G's and they have compact intense layouts except for a few. Does anyone know if any of them have horsecollars cause i've only ridden Laser and SDLooper. Horsecollars would ruin the experience.

Revolution has horsecollars. Mindbender has a weird thing that goes over your shoulders, but it's not very uncomfortable unless you are tall. My brother couldn't ride. It made me mad. What an awesome ride, and he had to sit out! :(

The highest I've seen is 4.66, on like 4 different coasters.
