on the rear and front spikes of Wicked Twister, is there a holding break, or do the twists restrict that?

It's been stated numerous times by several folks that other impulse coasters can keep their holding brakes. I for one totally agree with that line of thought. I liked S:UE at SFWOA but actually I found the holding brake to be a bit on the painfull side. It was neat no doubt about it but just not no where as thrilling as being pulled up that backwards spiral.

No, I rode WT a week ago, and I don't think WT would be as good with a holding brake. Amazing ride however, its like nothing you can imagine.

Why do they report power outages on TV?

WT with a holding break would just be weird. The ride is awesome the way it is, and I think a holding break wouldn't make it quite as good.

Just sit back, and enjoy your record breaking ride on Millennium Force!

head over to www.guidetothepoint.com... It's CoasterBuzz's sister site. They have pics of everything Cedar Point.

I like that WT doesnt have a holding brake, and Superman over @ SFWOA does. Its a short distance and two totally different rides. Fun for all on both.

How about if it had both. It would do a full twist and then go straight, and thats where the holding brake would be.

Virtual Midway is also a great site for CP pictures - everything from rides to food places and landscaping.

I think it would have been cool to add a straight piece of track right above the rear twist, so that a holding break could have been added. Looking down at the ground and at the twisted train would be very cool. However, I love it just the way it is and am not disappointed in it's ride performance whatsoever!

I love the way your looking straight down at the beach from even the back seat. Cool improvement to S:UE
