Thread the Needle

Thursday, October 11, 2001 8:34 AM
I know there are a lot of coasters out there with track that goes through the middle of the loop as well as the couple of coasters that have interlocking loops.  Are there any coasters that have a corkscrew or inline twist going through a loop?  I can't think of any.  Do you think they will ever do this?  Also what about threading a loop on an inverted coaster?  What do you all think?

One of the new Intamin inverted coasters threads the loop; I think it's the only one.

Threading the loop on a B&M inverted coaster has been done. I believe it is the coaster called Pyrenees somewhere in Japan. A VERY tight helix threads a verticle loop.

KBF has Montezooma's Revenge's loop threaded by another coaster entirely, Jaguar.

Ya you are right.  I found Tornado by Intamin is an inverted coaster that runs through the loop.  Thanks
I'm still wondering about having a corksrew, inline twist, or even a cobra roll go through a loop.  Will it be done?

SFAW's stand-up Batman: The Escape threads the needle.

Be sure not to forget the Arrow-designed Nessie and Orient Express. They both have interlocking loops.

If the link does not work, just copy and paste to your browser, it will work that way.

BTW, how do you turn a link into plain text that says something else?

You're using the rich text editing, right Soggy? Just highlight the text and hit the button on the top right above the text box that says URL. It'll pop up a box, and you can type the adress in there.

See? :)

Thanks Intamin2K, but for some reason on my PC at work, I still get the older version of POP Forums, no little buttons above the text box. At home I get the latest version, any idea on that problem... Jeff?

Soggy: It should work on any version of Internet Explorer (Windows) version 4 and later. Or was it 5? I don't actually remember!

The Vekoma inverted Odyssey going up at the UK park Fantasy Island is supposed to be built around the Millenium Roller Coaster. What the Millenium Roller Coaster is I have no idea, the picture of it on rcdb looks funny. Anyways, the invert should twist along the entire ride if the description's on par, it should at least thread a loop, and the existing coaster will probaly thread something on the new one.

Ah... that explains it.  My work has version 4.7 or something.  I guess you need 5.  I could change it, but I'm not allowed. (even though I managed to hack the password)

But from home I think I got it!
