Unique Coasters & their Inversions

Thursday, August 23, 2001 7:08 AM
This Arrow coaster in Korea has three corkscrews in a row followed by two vertical loops! As seen in this photo & another. It's called the Loop & Spiral Coaster, more info & photos can be found here. Someone said they would rather have this coaster than SFMM's Viper (Same colors too!)

Check out this neat photo of the Butterfly element on Goudurix, a Vekoma Sitdown 7-Looper at Parc Asterix, France.

Any other unique coasters or inversions that have captured your attention?

That Loop and Spiral Coaster looks interesting, I don't think that even gives you enough time to breathe! Looks fun though....

Rollercoaster!  magazine did an issue on Japanese and Korean coasters a couple years ago.  Almost all of them had cool quirks like that.  One had a big helix before the first drop.  One was a shuttle loop, only the backwards track was really shallow grade, like 20 degrees.  And then there was the water coaster that actually jumps the track over a gap into a pool of water!  And the racing coasters where one side was stand-up, the other sit-down.  Cool stuff.

Nah, I would rather have Viper. That looks real short, not very tall, and only 5 inversions? Quite mediocre compared to the Arrow "mega-loopers". It is real photogenic and pretty looking though I must say.

Dangit!! That butterfly on Goudurix is almost exactly what I had "invented" on paper a few months ago. I guess Vekoma beat me to it, how embarassing to be bested by them! My plan was to have that on a B&M inverted as the first 2 inversions, though.

"X" marks the spot in 2001!

Here's a few i found interesting...

Superman: The Ride

Mind Bender

Lethal Weapon Pursuit

Though Mind Bender only has loops, the swooping drops on it look awesome.

The Lethal Weapon Pursuit looks really nice.
