Talk about Weightlessness on a zero-g roll

Monday, August 13, 2001 9:22 PM
Zero-g rolls are the best element a ride can have. They even sometimes feel better than the drop. The back seat feels best on this inverion. But, do zero-g rolls feel best on inverted, floorless, or sit-down coasters? Forget the giant loops, why not add a giant zero-g instead? You will actually feel like falling out. Please reply with what you think of this great inversion.

I haven't experienced them on anything other than a Invert, but they are my favorite element of Batman: The Ride and Raptor !

I've been on a zero-g roll on a sitdown, a floorless, and multiple inverts. My favortite type of coaster to have this on is the floorless. Medusa at SFMW has a simply amazing zero-g roll.

The thing with Zero-G rolls on inverts is...they really don't feel like a zero-g roll at all. they kinda hold you into the seat because they rotate you around the track instead of actually rotation the track around you.
Intamin, OTOH, has the right idea with invertedt barrel rolls. the fact that the train almost rotates around you is extremely cool.

Medusa at SFMW "zero-g-roll" is the best. If you are seating in the far left in the front row, that is the best seat for weightlessness on the "zero-g-roll."

Wouldn't a giant zero-g roll on a sit-down coaster just be a corkscrew? Or am I picturing this wrong? *** This post was edited by KenK on 8/14/2001. ***

I think B&M should have never named the invered's 0-G roll a 0-G roll at all. On B:TR, I was stuck to my seat, blacking out! It was cool and all, but hardly 0-Gs. Too bad they can't construct them like the do on sit-down loopers, or you'd probably end up with a red out (if the train went through accually on your heartline, like it should.)

SFMW zero-g is best on the 5th row far left. Top Gun at PGA didn't feelo much like a zero-g roll scince it is inverted.

I argee in prinicple with TrBiggar and Raven-Phile. The "inline twist" on B&M inverts is hardly a "zero-g roll". On the other hand, the "camelback inversions" on like Kraken and Hulk ARE zero G rolls.

With that in mind, the original is still the best. KUMBA ROCKS!

Right on! Kumba was my first true 0-g roll, and still is my favorite.

I liked the zg rolls on Talon better than Raptor. I actually felt weightless which I don't on Raptor.

Keep your shoulder harness extremely loose on a zero g roll and see what happens. I did it numerous times on Superman Krypton Coaster. Zero g roll is definitely my favorite element.

I hear ya Buzzo. I thought I was gonna get flung out. I have never felt like that on a coaster. I went from my seat to floating and back down all in matter of seconds. It was the best feeling I have ever had on a coaster.

I agree, it's the best inversion on that coaster. I haven't been on too many others (Top Gun at PGA and Batman at SFMM) but of the ones I have been on, it's the best. :)

Kumba has the original. It's good, but I prefer Kraken.

Come to think of it, Florida's got more zero-g rolls then any other state. I think there's 6, including the inverts.

They are much better on sitdown's. I also say that Kumba has the best one that I've been on. The Hulk's zero-roll wasn't nearly as good.
