Pinfari offering "tilt" coaster as well

Posted Monday, December 18, 2000 6:04 AM | Contributed by Jeff

With all of the buzz surrounding Giovanola's tilt model coaster, it's no surprise that another manufacturer is also offering a similar product.

Check out Pinfari's version on their Web site.

If i remember correctly, this one has been out for a while. I think it uses a elevator to turn the track up or somthing like that

Soggy's avatar I saw that Vekoma also has a tilter called Cliffhanger. Their website has a nice animation of it too.

Interesting to see if ANY of these ever make it into a park.

The Vekoma version is in testing so it shouldn't be too long before it's released!?

Pinfari's had this since about '98.

I'm surprised nobody has commented on following things:
1. It appears that unlike Giovanola's tilt model, Pinfari's tilt coaster does not have a LIFT hill; riders load the train in the staion, and the station portion of track is lifted up, then tilted. (Zero-G kind of touched on this one)
2. Giovanola's tilt model is the only one which goes PAST the 90 degree vertical point
