out and back or twister

Saturday, April 27, 2002 11:23 AM

would you prefer to ride an out and back or a twister design woodie/hypercoaster?

i would personally go for twister on both as i find twister style much more thrilling than out and backs.

How about an out and back twister? :)

it all depends

out & backs = Good Air time ( usually )

Twisters = Good laterals

I perfer out and backs

1) I Enjoy air time more than gettin slamed side to side

2)Out & backs tend to hold up better than twisters.... ie Mean Streak

3) Most out & backs run faster than their twisting counterparts

I love both, but my ideal coaster would be a wooden twister with Shivering Timbers' first three hills and LOADS of airtime. My number one requirement is airtime, then wooden, then laterals, then smoothness. If you get all four in one ride, great. But as long as it delivers airtime, I'm happy.
Favorite out & backers-- Shivering Timbers & SFNE's Superman
Favorite Twisters -- Knnoebel's Twister & Hershey's Wildcat

Well i enjoyed Yankee Cannonball more then the SFNE Cyclone which is a Twister, again out and backs usually get a lot of airtime, YC gets soooo much airtime, and has some laterals, cuz i remember being thrown around.

Well... Roar (SFMW), is currently my favorite wodden, but then again, I haven't really been on many woddies. The only REAL out n' back woddy I'ved tried, is Colossos at Heide Park, and the experience is not really good. Talking about hyper coasters, I'ved only been on two of them, and they're both twisters, but they are also good, I'm gonna ride both Silver Star, and The Big One this summer, so maybe I'ved changed my dicition, when the time comes...

Brunetts for sure.

I prefer twisters. Twisters have good laterals and sometimes good air as well. (a.l.a Viper)

Same thing with steel hypers. A layout like Raging Bull, Millenium Force, Superman (SFNE) or Goliath (SFH) is always more welcome than a simple out and back. It's not that I don't like out 'n backs, rides like Nitro or AC rank very well on my list, the issue is the layouts are just, well, dull. A twister can combine the goodies that an out 'n back has and make it a heck of a lot more interesting.

I like twister becuase with alot of out ands back coaster there is somthing that usaly messes with the amount of airtime you get ,such as seat divders,seatbelts or being stapeled to the seat by a tight lapbar, also On blue streak at Cedarpoint I kelpt hitting my head on the hard headrest! As with a Twister design your being tossed around the car more, and with that when the car changes direction you get airtime and it just feels like everything is wrong, yet its so rigth.

Ot and back and twisters combined *cough*The perfect coaster*cough*. SRoS @ SFNE is both, the first part is out and back, then it turns into a sweet twister section, then some bunny hops, but to compare SRoS to other coasters is just unfair.

I was actually arguing w/ CoasterGuy about this the other day. Goliath looks fun, but would be way better if they had more than that one measly camel back (heard it's weak like B&M air) and if the drop was steep. Had they added 1 2 or 3 bunny hops at the end, changed to the station location, and made the drop 10-20* steeper, the ride would be crazy, but a 60* drop on a modern day hyper and a single airtime hill just doesn't utilize the speed if you ask me.

Whichever one I'm standing in front of at the time and is ready for me to ride it. Same answer for the other question too.

I'll take airtime over laterals any day. Although a combo of both is always great.

It all depends on what I'm looking for...if I want airtime, out and back. If I want laterals, twister. I like them both the same but it just depends on what I feel like riding.

The Lakeside Cyclone is a combination coaster. Best of both worlds.

If you want a good combo, try Hurricane Category 5 at the Myrtle Beach Pavillion

Lakeside Cyclone = fun

I used to enjoy Out and Backs much more than I do now. Twisters seem to be rising in excitement for me.
