Volcano the Blast Coaster

Friday, June 14, 2002 11:01 PM
I started the thread about the highest inversion, and it was agreed that Volcano's 155ft tall sidewinder held the record. It got me to thinking about something else....is Volcano still the fastest inverted coaster on the planet? And i mean full circuit coaster, not Intamin's impulse shuttles, because they acheive 72mph also, like Wicked Twister, V2, and Superman:Ultimate Escape. I dont think any other full circuit invert reaches 72mph but i could be wrong.......thanks for the help guys :)

Son Of Beast at PKI goes 78 mph with 1 inversion so that would make it faster than Volcano. I'm not sure if there are any faster with an inversion.

I think he meant inverted coaster, not coaster with an inversion.

RCDB lists Volcano as a top speed of 70mph. The next closest full circuit inverted is Alpengeist at 67mph.
