A new kind of hybrid 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.

I would love to see ANY of these happen to MilForce:

Old Schwarzkopf Jet Star trains ala Whizzer

A train of Zamperla spinning mouse cars

Old PTC buzz bar trains.

That leads me to a question... why haven't we ever seen honest-to-God woodie trains (with different chassis) on any of these steel non-looping coasters?

Hell, even Steel Force would be kick butt with some old-school PTC style trains on it.

Well they kind of did it with that Hopkins coaster in Texas that added PTC'S trains.
Life is short....have fun!

You talking about Texas Tornado?

They were PTCs, but they weren't woodie PTCs by any stretch, any more than those B&M trains on Psyclone were even remotely like other B&M trains.

How about Diamondback trains on El Toro?
