Unique elements...all in one

Thursday, April 18, 2002 9:35 AM
I'm thinking of making an RCT creation of a steel twister that has all of the oddball elements that are out there on steel coasters. So far I've got;

Curved Station (like Ninja @ SFMM)
Drop right out of station
Bowtie inversion (Dragon Mountain @ Marineland)
Cutback inversion (Drachen Fire R.I.P.)
Interlocking Loops (Nessie @ BGW)
Steel trick-track (King Cobra R.I.P.)
Mobius racer (Racer @ KW)
Dual lift hills
First lift with launch (Hulk @ IOA)
Last lift hill into station (Red Devil @ GTitS)
Pretzel Loop (S:UF @ SFoG)

Can you guys (and gals) think of any others???

Careful, there's a naughty, dirty word in there! I think the downward sloping brake run on Xcelerator is unique. Don't know if you can do that on RCT.

How can you do a curved station in RCT? And why would you want a ride-ending lift hill? That's the worst element possible, imo.

Its almost impossible to do a curved station. Actually im not going to say its impossible, because i know someone will figure out how to do it.

One more thing, shouldnt this be in the RCT forum?

Somedays it's just not worth chewing through the restraints.

Holy Crap!! Thats gonna be a big coaster, lol. That sounds like it would be fun though. That gives me an idea to build a steel twister with more than 10 lifthills like I did with a wooden twister.

Millennium Force......It has its ups and downs.

Maybe the butterfly inversion that the coaster at Parc Asterix has.

You gotta add a immelman-into-helix combo like Fire Dragon has :o)

A 0-g roll like from any b&m steel loopers.A tunnel like lightning racer where the trains go through at the same time. A airtime hill like S:ros in Movie World. The new overbanked hill from the new Goliath in SFH would be good also.

Thanks James...Fire Dragon doesn't get nearly the love it deserves. It even took me about 100 spins before I truly began to appreciate this UNIQUE inverted.

And, as jay_rider mentioned, the "Stengel Dive" must be absolutely AWESOME...
