    Then that means RCDB is wrong?

    I thought it was around 6g's on one of those vertical tower rides...

    Mindbender at Galaxyland is right. Moonsault Scramble doesn't exist anymore, and Thriller has been nuetered.

    Whatever happened to Drier Looping?

    At 0.1 g under, it's Tower of Terror at Gold Reef City... (got confused with Dreamworlds Tower of Terror...)

    The Tower of Terror at Gold Reef looks pretty cool, with some nice mine themeing.

    I've heard that Invertigo and Face/Off both pull 5 g's

    I believe it because riding backwards through the first camelback I almost always gray or black out.

    [url]http://www.rcdb.com/qs.htm?quicksearch=face%2Foff[/url] rcdb confirms this. Therefore tis true.

    Can you read?

    edh stated what coaster it was in his post.

    Also, don't double post, just use the edit button.

    Matt, I think Drier Looping may be more intense than Thriller or Olympia Looping. There was a traveling one at the Georgia State Fair, and in the back it was insanely intense!

    Does anyone have a picture of this "Drier Looping" coaster? Is it a traveling coaster?
