Ultra Twister

Has anybody been on this coaster. Well, if you have, then would you please tell me what it is like. It looks cool, but I know what their restraint can feel like. Is it really cool, or really painful?

The Ultra Twister is fun. Not the smoothest ride in the world, but it's no Vekoma either.

I tested the japanese version in Tokyo seven years ago and it was brilliant fun and very thrilling. No headbanging, but quite a wild ride.
By the way it features a mechanoical seesaw-like junction to tilt the car to go backwards. So what is all this Tilt-coaster panic about?

It looked really cool. They have a system where the cars are slowly moving as you get in. I was sitting in the seat, I had to slide down so much, and I didn't fit, so I had to crawl out before the ride started going up the lift. I fit on every other ride in the world, just not that one, so I assume it's not too comfortable. I don't know, however, since I wasn't strapped all the way in!

Are they going to add any more of these coasters or what?

The Ultra Twister design concept never really caught on in the US. I doubt it if we will see more here in the states. Japan has something like 4 or 5 of them. I guess since TOGO is in Japan it caught on better there.

So you want a coaster in your backyard? I hope you have a big backyard.

As far as I can see (besides Ultra Twister) TOGO is really bad. Considering Viper and it's stand-up- they weren't that good.

I like it... besides the fact that if its raining the car will fly through the brakes a little and curve up a little before it stops to drop down to the lower track.
