Trick track is usually a section of very low profile "rabbit hops" placed just before the station brake.

My favorite trick track element is on the PGA B&M stand-up coaster, Vortex. It's right before the flat spin and spiral curve combo, and it saves the coaster from being a total bore.

Actually trick track is a straightaway. Except, you are slanted to one side, then another (except on Villain where you just go to one side) It is all the same level.

I know it is on Villain and Shivering Timbers.

Yes, Harry Traver made trick track famous, it was used on the Crystal Beach Cyclone.

The trick track on Villain is barely noticable, but I hear that Shivering Timbers has this feature and it's much cooler? ST fans?

Yes, ST delivers a good left to right slamming, but not too bad. It does exactly what trick-track is supposed to do, slam you from side to side, without breaking your ribs. (Crystal Beach Cyclone)

The trick track is sweet on Shivering Timbers!! It throws you to one side then it kinda just jostles you but it manages not to be rough!!!!!

Shivering Timbers' trick track is a perfect blend of roughness and lateral movement. It is a great change of pace, just in case you get tired of all of the hills and airtime before hitting the helix.

One of the best coasters in the world. It is the MF and S:ROS of woodies. If you haven't been on it, make the trip, no matter how far away or inconvenient it might be.

BoulderDash at Lake Compounce has a trick track, but it's just a small dip.

I would have to agree. Shivering Timbers trick track is great. You definately know when you hit it and it is just rough enough to jolt you and not crack your ribs. ST is one of the best wooden coaster out there at the moment.
