O.K. I am reaching! How about a hyper backwards?

I know, you are saying why? I dont know. It sounds like it would be an adrenaline rush. It probably wouldnt be a difficult thing to do considering its just high speeds and no loops. Obviously a park wouldnt do it for the whole season but if they did it for like a month, I think it would get rave reviews.

I am not 100% for sure but I think the Morgan Baby Hyper at Sea world in texas called Steel Eel has a backwards train or is capable of running it's trains backwards.

I think there is a video of it going backwards on the discovery.com web site in the thrill section. it's all about rollercoasters and you can even build your own

I like the idea, but medically speaking it might not be so wise: the force you get going forwards presses you into your seat, but going backwards... Ouch. Anyone have an idea about what the fastest speed of a backwards coaster is right now?

I dunno... it would have to be a B&M or Intamin, no Arrow or Morgans.

Well it would be ok if they had horsecollars, althought that may create headbanging.

Might be a bit painful on the shoulders - I know the Boomerangs really do boom and bang and get a little painful.
