    That looks like the equivalent of going on Ultimate's second half on a tea tray with a car seat belt to hold you in place!

    What makes those seem stranger still is when you realise that it actually has a two car train, and you see how they are coupled...

    This contains 10 rare and unusual rollercoasters. Quiet an interesting watch including Alton's mouse and Drayton's G force, the washing machine element can be seen at 13.16

    Also take a look at Cobra's restraints can be seen at 9.48 :eek:



    Edited, also this one containing strange rollercoasters. The first one looks very dodgy, looks like a DIY job and those metal harnesses :eek:

    Also that plastic T tray of a rollercoaster on those plastic piping also looks like a DIY job

    Here's the weird and perhaps not so wonderful Texas Tornado at Wonderland Park before and after the inversion modifications...

    You have to wonder how they got it so wrong!

    I mean this is totally stretching the definition of thread but still bizarre.

    Anyone fancy breaking out the gauntlets and heading to the local fair?

    Here's a great video I found about a proposed 700ft tall Arrow coaster for the Stratosphere in Las Vegas that never happened:



    This would have been an interesting coaster had it been built!

    Been there got the cred.

    It's a lot older than 2010. I remember riding this in the early 2000s. I'm sure it'll be on an old film somewhere.

    Might have been mentioned before, but Objectif Mars at Futuroscope is now open... and it's really bizarre!

    Just having a drop track in the light makes it strange!

    It’s like they went on The Smiler, Th13teen and Spinball and said ‘yeah, I want all of that’.
