Well, all parks that have racing out-and-backs.

Blackpool Pleasure Beach does, I think. Big Dipper looks like a O&B, Rollercoaster is a O&B, and Grand National is kind of a double-O&B racer.

Sonofmagnum, you're right. It's very easy to mix up coasters. Except for the bruises and headaches, RWB is pretty darn forgettable in it's current state! (For me, that is)

What's the difference between a regular wooden coaster and an out-and-back?

SecondSon: An Out and Back woodie is a woodie that goes out to the farthest point of the track and then returns to the station. A double out-&-back does this twice and a triple out-&-back does it thrice.

PC has 3 or 4 depending on your opinion. It has Thunder Road (racing coaster), Hurler, and Scooby Doo (is this considered and out-and-back?)

SecondSon:

Wooden coasters are generally divided into 2 types, out & backs and tristers. Actually these designations can also be applied to steel coasters as well. As there names imply twisters twist around a lot in a kind of boulwl of spaghetti pattern. Out and backs run out with a series of hills then turn around and come back with another more or less straight series of hills. Out & backs are often doubled going out and back twice to save space or bent into an L shape to fit the available area.

For a classic out and back try Shivering Timbers. www.coastergallery.com/GA/M10.html

For a twister Roar is an excellent example http://www.rcdb.com/installationgallery485.htm?Picture=4

Phoenix is a double out and back http://www.rcdb.com/installationgallery143.htm?Picture=2

CP still has 2 wooden out & backs - blue streak and gemini. MF doesn't seem like an out & back, but magnum definitely is.

just my opinion, but I consider RT in its current state to be more of an "ouch my back!" than an "out and back"...

And Gemini is most definitely a STEEL coaster...wooden supports.

wondering about Rebel Yell at PKD, and its (well-hidden, perhaps hibernating) Grizzly...and PKI has Beastie and Racer/Recar!

rollergator, what about Hurler thats more of an Out & Back than Grizzly at PKD. I would call Grizzly more of a terrain coaster.

I would also include Big Chief's in the category of multiple out & back's. And for some spanish flavor, Port Aventura has Stampida (Triple Racing CCI) and a junior CCI out and back (Tomahawk).
