Anybody seen that "Americas Greatest Rollercoaster Thrills volume 1" where arrow has the pipeline coaster that simulated snaprolls like a fighter jet? It was supposed to come out in 1992. Supposedley, they had no way of protecting the riders heads from the track...any thoughts?

<BR>All they to do was enclose the tops and make the track bigger.

It looked like a very innovative concept, but it was pretty obvious that it had issues.

There is one pipeline in existience. I have seen pictures of it. I believe it is in a mall in Korea or somewhere in Aisa. This is no joke they did make one. I am not positive if it was arrow but there is one.

<BR>The first and last picture are from Spiral Coaster in Lotte World, Korea. I think it was moved to Kuwait a few years ago. The first element is a barrel roll. The last element is a diving turn.

<BR>The second picture is from the Arrow pipeline prototype, the element is snap roll.

the one Pipeline that was built was built by Intamin. Also, couldnt you kinda consider Ultratwister a type of pipeline coaster

I would consider Ultra Twister a pipeline even though it is a TOGO. I wish there were more of these the look pretty good.

Yeah I think those coasters look really fun, but I think the only one in the U.S. is supposed to get torn down...thats a true shame.

Back on topic, I never knew Intamin made a pipeline coaster, if that is the one in that mall, it looks like a lot of fun, of course I'd ride anything once. Twice, if the first time wasn't what I expected, and assuming it wasn't painful.

That looks fun,I wish a park would buy one.

The togo one is useally called a heartline coaster. The one already built is intamin,but its really short and is powered launch,not really a proper coaster. The arrowpipeline was actually sw1 and sw2,but got cancelled.

Ultra Twister is crazy because on the inline twist (more like a pipeline twist) it feels as if you're not moving at all. So you feel like you're rolling around on the ground rather than through an pipeline twist

I think that Arrow should build a pipeline coaster and a park that a chain uses to test prototypes (like Paramount's test park is PKD)
and see how that works. I just wish they didn't cost so much.

It didn't work beacuse it was to expensive to make that Arrow didn't even put it on the market. It is a shame because it would be very unique. I think a park should buy a Premier Pipeline coaster, which are basically the same as TOGO's, but the park should get it longer, higher, and slightly more twisted. That would be awsome.

Imagine this ride review...

The ride was great. Very nice first drop and that snap roll... you had to see the look on my girlfriends face when I bashed the left side of my head in. It's something I'll never forget.

I dont know if its considered a true pipeline but it definently has a pipeline element thrown in there. Sort of a Super Pipeline.

Plus, I think to be a true pipeline the track cant turn.

Okay, there is a true pipeline coaster existing today. It's quite unique because not only is it located inside a mall/amusement park, but it's the only operating pipeline coaster in the world. It's called Spiral Coaster and it was designed by Intamin. It's located at Lotte World, Seoul, South Korea. You guys heard of this before.

Nope, not at all. It just has the rings around it for decoration. (I'm not being sarcastic)
