I know that there's already a thread going around about blacking out, so just substitue the word red in for black and answer me.

Those are too many negative G's, right? If it is, I can't think of any times that's happened (except when I stand up too fast ;))

Is it just me or does Hypersonic look like one of those coasters you would see on Looney Toons? *** This post was edited by Josh on 1/28/2001. ***

A redout is when the negative g is too strong, and the blood rushes into your head. No coasters cause these, because redouts are much more dangerous than blackouts. You only have to pull around 3 negative g's to have a redout, and more than that can be lethal.

Yeah, that would suck.

Alright... quick question here pertaining to negative G's. Does anybody have a clue as to how many negative G's are on SROS's 3rd hill?

Well, I haven't been on S:ROS, but I'm sure they are probably about the same as on MF's two massive camel backs. MF's first 182 ft. camel back has some unbelievable negative g's, in the 5th car especially. I would say that S:ROS pulls around 1 or 1.5 negative g's. I don't think there are any coasters that pull over 1.5 negative g's.

I think that it pulls more than merely 1.5 it probably does 2-2.5, hopefully they will not add trims in the future.

Wow, if negative 3 g's will give you a redout, then I guess all the guest that rode a certain coaster that I built on RCT all had redouts ;)

Too many g's can cause an anneurism.I believe that if negative g's go over 1-1.5 they start to endanger riders. Keep in mind, it doesn't take much to get you off the seat.

That's complete and utter crap, and entirely incorrect.

Okay, I was off by .5 G's. "Sustained negative Gs above 2Gs will kill too [aneurysm]."

I got my information from GTTP.

If the information is wrong then the source is wrong. I guess I deserved that tounge-lashing.

Well, CPgenius, contrary to what Jeff said, it isn't TOTAL crap, it's just a little off. Keep in mind, the turbo drop side of Power Tower pulls -1.5 g's, and it's completely safe. It doesn't get too dangerous until you start reaching around -3 g's.
