Other Information

  • A good Suspended Roller Coaster requires plenty of curves and helixes to provide the high lateral G's required to swing the cars.

In Real Life

The Suspended Swinging Coaster is based on Arrow's original suspended coaster design. This was the first instance of the Inverted Roller Coasters now popular among many parks around the world. It was first introduced in the 1980's as a prototype built by Arrow Dynamics with cars that swing around curves. Vekoma and B&M presently build inverted roller coasters with inversions and stationary cars.

The floorless vehicles for the coaster are based on Vekoma's suspended floorless vehicles manufactured for both their own designs and for pre-existing Arrow models.[1] These trains are perhaps most famously seen on Vampire at Chessington World of Adventures.
