Wicked Twister not the first

Monday, April 8, 2002 6:45 PM
I saw on another forum that Wicked Twister is not the first double twisting impulse coaster. Look at this map and the orange brown coaster on the side looks double twisting. http://www.leofoo.com.tw/village/west.htm It's name is screaming condor and is located at Leofoo vilage theme park. Here are some stats http://ft.coasterwire.com/intamin/leo.htm but the person at the forum said these stats were wrong. Can anyone tell me more about this coaster and confirm that is double twisting and maybe show a picture.

If you play around with the site (sorry, couldn't directly link to it) you can find a picture of the coaster. From the looks of it, there's only one twisted spike.

Yeah, go into the map. Click the 2nd button on the right, then go to the second link under that so an arrow is pointing at the Impulse and you will see a picture of the ride and it only has ONE twisting spike. Sorry to burst your bubble. If you go by what park mpas say then S:TE has 2 cars on one track, Deja's loop goes through the cobra roll, and Ghostrider has no MCBR.

Well, that was difficult to get to that photo. Thanks, Spongebob.

Um, the train is sitting there in the spike with all of the seats on the same side. Sure doesn't look like it's twisting to me. Not only that, but why would Intamin's president get up and say that Twister is the first double-twisting Impulse? I'm fairly certain he knows what he has built!
