Guess The Coaster

Enthusiast coaster & amusement park chatter about whatever. If it's not about coasters & parks, it'll go to the garbage file. Keep it on-topic and flame-retardant, please.

Guess The Coaster

Post by Paul Drabek » Sun Jun 30, 2013 8:20 pm

Ok...we haven't done this in a a long time. The rules are simple I have posted a picture. If you can guess the name of the coaster and park it is your turn to post a picture for others to guess on. When someone guesses correctly you let them know and then the responsibility passes on to them. No photoshopping photos other than cropping and if it goes for more than a day then drop a hint.

Here's the first one...there are two coasters in this photo so just give me the name of the one with a train on the lift.

The lack of a dip right after the lift means it's not a standard Corkscrew.
That narrows it down, as does the Pinfari(?) coaster in the foreground.

Unfortunately, that narrows it down to coasters I've never seen in person, so I'm at a loss on this one.

OOOOO... that's NOT the lift. Now I'm really baffled.

Isn't Apocalypse on the West coast at Magic Mountain? Either way that was a head scratcher...

Well that's Tornado at Avonturenpark Hellendoorn in the Netherlands.

For whatever reason I am unable to upload the great photo I have and am leaving town for the weekend. Spencer, post another coaster photo please.

Everyone enjoy Independence Day. We live in a great country, even if it is declining.

Firstly: I call foul on the hint about it sharing a name with an EAST coast SF coaster.

Secondly: this is a good lesson for folks who get to post future entries.... it might help to change the name of the picture before you post it, if the filename has the name of the coaster in it!

Oops. Okay well I hope I only do that once!

Oh and the coaster on the EAST coast was Iron Wolf, when it got relocated.
