Well I beleive that you missed the shuttle loop in australia. It is at that wonderland park. Let me find it if I have time...
EDIT: Oh wait. Nevermind. That is a vekoma coaster. I thought I heard they had a shuttle loop. But I have a question. Do you think that RcNRc, Poltergeist, and Joker's Jinx would fall into the shuttle looper category? And what about Intamin impulses and Hydrolic Launched coasters?

RnRC, Poltergeist, and Joker's Jinx are all complete circuit coasters, so no, they would not be considered Shuttle loopers. They are however launched coasters.
Intamin Impulses, while being shuttles, do not loop. The closest being SFMW's 45° spiral. They are still Shuttle's though. Since Roomraider's list is for shuttle loops only, they are not on it.
And while there is only one Rocket coaster, (CP's "Dragster" is not official yet) is also a complete circuit and does not loop either; therefore it is not a Shuttle Loop.
The question I have, is:
Would Manhattan Express at the NY, NY hotel and Casino in LV, NV be in the heartline category, or is it to iffy?

That is the definition of an inversion. Look at how long you would be upside down on that one!
Great pages, love the heartlines. Do you think that the arrow test pipeline should be in there, since it was working for a lil while, up to you though.

SFMM4LIFE, take a lok at the ME photo. It may just be angles, but it looks like ME's upsidedown part is a little longer. I have ridden ME (and loved it) and that inversion is the best I've been on. The hangtime is amazing and it scared the poo out of me. That's also the reason I ask if ME could beconsidered a heartline coaster.

Hector, that is longer probably, unless they are the same. Since ME is a "dive-loop", is 4th Dimensions a "dive-loop" or immelman? I can't tell by the photo. But I think that those inversions look like some of the best.
P.S. - Dave or anyone, know where I can see anymore pics of 4th Dimension?

That coaster should have been Viper at Great Adventure! It is a lot longer and a lots of fun. I know its a Togo, guys....but it looks like Viper had so much more potential......

TOGO did well on their coasters in Japan. The coasters over here on the other hand didnt work so well. Either TOGO US had some engineering issues, or TOGO doesnt like us. Anyway, be prepared to say 4 cars on XLR8 are turned backwards. I dont know if they will keep it that way or if it was just fright fest, but it was so successful that i think it should be all season long. It was alot of fun.

Hey Dave! Aren't Setpoints creations such as Roller Soaker and Flying Super Satureator suspendend coasters?
P.s. Thanks for the pic.s and info.- I didn't Know they're were TWO heartline coasters in the US. How Cool.

There are two heartline, but one is the kind that cant turn (Ultra Twister) and one isd the later model (Viper)

The PAX Company makes shuttle loopers, too. Don't know much about them, but RCDB lists one in Russia and one in Saudi Arabia. They are weird looking things with striped track.
Great job on the pages, and thanks for tracking down those pics! That's the closest many of us will get to those coasters.
12-07-2002, 07:06 PM
