Wicked Twister, a wicked
impulse roller coaster, will begin to start twisting guests in May 2002.
But what is a impulse roller coaster you ask? A impulse roller coaster is a
new type of roller coaster in the industry. Below is a description of what
will be a wicked ride aboard Wicked Twister.
aboard Wicked Twister will board a car that is suspended below the track,
in which their feet will dangle freely. Once the ride starts, the train will
be launched forward from 0-50 mph in 2.2 seconds! Following the launch the
train will turn 90 degree upward and head up into the sky on the forward
spike. The first time going up the forward spike, the train will only go
about halfway up before stalling and coasting back into the station. When
the train enters the station it will be shoot backwards at 63 mph and head
backwards into the sky. While heading into the sky backwards the train will
be twisted 450 degrees on the backwards spike. The train will only have enough power to go about
3/4 of the way up before stalling and coasting back into the station/launch
time upon entering the station/launch area the train will be blasted forward at 69
mph. The train will head up the forward spike, and will be twisted 450
degrees. Upon stalling at the time, the train will twist back down and
enter the station/launch area and will be rocketed backwards again but at 72 mph. Once
again the train will be twisted 450 degrees on the back tower, before
stalling and returning to the station/launch area to be blasted for the last time at 62
mph. This time the train will only make it halfway up the forward spike
before stalling and returning to the station, where the ride will be
brought to a smooth, final stop.
