15 "Wacky Roller Coasters!"

Postby robbalvey » Wed Aug 07, 2013 3:43 pm

Hey everyone!

Travel Channel has published another one of my blog articles, this time about the world's "wackiest" roller coasters! This is about some of the most interesting and strange roller coasters in the world.

We'd really appreciate all of you clicking the link, and clicking that Facebook LIKE button you are on the first photo! (Feel free to tweet the link also!)

Thank you!

I wish there was more Gravity Max-style rides, at least a few in America.
Favourite Coaster: Steel Vengeance
Other Favourites: SkyRush, Storm Chaser, Lightning Run, Magnum XL-200, Voyage, Apollo's Chariot, Phoenix, Outlaw Run, and Storm Runner

Obsessed with S&S Screamin Swings

If Magnum XL-200 dies we riot

I have never seen the ToT is South Africa before! Who is the manufacturer? Is it like a 1st Gen Intamin drop ride like Demon Drop?

Really neat list. I already "liked" the article and shared it on Facebook. Well done!

I'm really glad the Wacky Worm made the list or I would have called shenanigans.

PalmTree55, the Tower of Terror in South Africa is like a B&M dive machine with amazing mine shaft theming.
