Steepest Coaster -- By what stats?!

Steepest Coaster -- By what stats?!

Post by b.. » Tue, 15 Oct 1991 23:24:27

Recently, I've seen several articles which
state the world's steepest roller coasters
are currently made by Arrow Dynamics, listing
a tie at a 60 degree drop for Magnum XL-200
(Cedar Point) and Excalibre (Valleyfair!).
Ok, fine, but where does that leave coasters
like TOGO's Ultra Twister (Astroworld), which
features a 90 degree first drop, or Schwarzkopf's
Mindbender (Fantasyland), which features a 76
degree first drop?  

Buck, curious to know...
