Other Information

  • Gives a more intense ride than a sit-down roller coaster, so the track requires careful design to avoid high G forces, especially lateral G's.
  • This ride is called Stand-Up Steel Roller Coaster in RCT1 and Stand-Up Roller Coaster in RCT2 and RCT3.

In Real Life

  • This type of Stand-up coaster is made by the defunct Japanese company TOGO. This company made the first stand-up trains and also made many other revolutionizations to the coaster industry. The rides were notoriously rough and were driven away from being built due to the introduction of the much smoother Intamin stand-ups, Those Intamin Stand-ups paved the way for the even more unique Bolliger & Mabillard Stand-Ups. Both the Intamin and the B&M stand-ups were used in Six Flags parks but were not apart of the parks in RCT2. Riddler's Revenge was in Six Flags Magic Mountain (still operating).
