Yup, Superman: Ultimate Escape wasn't
the first impulse in the world, the first one was Linear Gale
at Korakuen which I think is in Aisa.

This is common knowledge. SUE was the first to feature the spiral.

I don't think Linear Gale was ever called an impulse. It doesn't even have the twist.

LG dosn't have brakes on the back tower either. And it's in Tokyo, Japan.
I've got laser eyes, and I know what you're thinking. It comes to no surprise, the Christmas lights are blinking.

They never said the first in the world, they said the first in The US!

Who Cares, a name is just that; a name. If I call Superman:Ultimate The Escape the first schznooze berry-filkel dinker, would you contest me, saying Linear Gale was the first?
Same goes with Hypercoasters and Gigacoasters. It's all arbitrary.

Linear Gale is an impulse just a boring one.

From the looks, I'd hardly call that boring, it's just that we have an advanced version here, so we might not think it's all that great, but if we had no V2's or S:UE, then i think we'd be saying otherwise. BTW, anyone know where there's more pics? I've heard so much, yet seen so little.
B&M+SFGAm=3 excellent coasters.

Jesus Christ people, do you have to be so freakin' harsh? I didn't know that Linear Gale was the world's first Impulse! Come on! Make fun of me too!
Not everyone is a coaster expert. That's what this site is here for. If you wanna go feel self-important about yourself, go start up CoasterExperts.com and have yourself a freakin' blast.
