Wooden Twister or Out and Back?

Thursday, February 21, 2002 9:01 AM
I was just curious who likes wooden out and backs and who prefers a wooden twister.  Just curious.  I myself prefer a out and back layout as opposed to a twister layout.

I like twisters better...they typically have better visuals and choppers.

As long as the ride is good, I like em all. CP's BlueStreak is great and Knotts GhostRider Rules!

Mr. G, well both Blue Streak and GhostRider are out and back variants...

Me, I like em Twisted. The more twisted the better. The Legend, Lightning Racer, Son of Beast, and Viper (SFGAm) are four of my top five woodies (the neither twister nor out'n'back Raven being the 5th). For the most part, out & back layouts bore me...no suprises...fun, but not AS fun as not knowing which way you'll turn next.

Out and backs!  I can't get enough of those!  Mostly because I love airtime!

Out-n-Backs for me as well, they generally have more air.

2Hostyl - one could classify Legend as more of an out-n-back with twister elements than a full-on twister.  Twisters are usually more compact than Legend.  From Legend's lift it goes out to the swoop drop, then back to the lift and over to the helix, and back to the station....in a "T" shape.

Man, I love them both.  They need to make more of those coasters where the first half the ride is out-and-back, then the other half is a twister.

I like air-time, and Out & Back wooden coasters are your best bet...


...however, I love to create coasters, and creating wooden twisters are much better because they allow for much more originality.


Both can have their share of problems with roughness, however... as is the case with the simpliest of out & back's... Blue Streak at Cedar Point!!!

Well Im kind of torn,

I love airtime and thats a plus for out-and-backs

I love feeling "out-of-control" thats a plus for twisters

I probably like twisters more because they are more thrilling

I gotta say I love terrain coasters :)

I like out and backs that don't feel out and backie.  To me BD's whole return run is just basically the same thing over and over.  Timbers is the same thing over and over.  I like a good mix of air, latterals and combinded air/latterals.  Raven, Legend Villain and Cheetah are 4 of my favorite coasters because they mix it up so good and offer explosive airtime moments when they happen.

I like Timbers,  I just think there is no surprise element to it. What you see it what you get, otherwise it is a very good coasters.

Chuck, who says variety is the spice of life :)

I prefer twisters because I have been on more twisters that out and back. Twisters give good laterals and nice headchoppers, yet out and backs normall only provide some laterals and good airtime.

Simple for me, both. I've only been on 2 (3) twisers, Viper and Gwazi(s). Viper is the best non-stop airtime macine ever built, Gwazi just plained sucked (extremely rough, no airtime, not dueling.)

Out and backs, I've been on 2. American Eagle and Zeus. American Eagle is good, up to the helix, and out of the helix, but in either of the 2 (4) helixes, it's too slow and rough. It needs retracking and less braking at those points. Zeus is one kick butt ride, right from the first drop it's airtime, poistive, airtime, positive, repeat a few times with a double up slipped in, an awesome, powerful turnaround with a nice green pond in the middle, a double down (which I myself find uncomfortable), and a couple hills, followed by whizzing through the station, and doing it all once again.

Then there are 2 that I've been on that are not terrain, not out and back, and not twisters (though Cyclops could be dending on how strict your categorization method is, it does cross under itself once or twice) Cyclops is just a little lift hill, a drop to the left, up, turn left, a pathetic excuse for a hill, a turn to the right, and then comes pure ecstacy (the most intense airtime you can have plus intense laterals at the bottom.) Then there is also Pegasus, a little circle-ish layout ride with no thrills except a tree that needs to be trimmed so it won't hit your hands when you're holding them up. Not much there.

So the only kind of wooden coaster I still have to ride would be a terrain coaster (Pegasus could be considered a go-kart terrain coaster, it follows a go kart track quite well), and every kind of wooden coaster you can think of has at least one ride that sets it well above all others, until you ride that other ride in another category that sets it above all others until you ride the first ride again.

I agree with "Mr. I Have a Problem With Green B&Ms", twisters are better. I love to be surprised. Plus they look cool.
