Ah, I see what you mean! Yes, there are a lot of laterals on it — mainly in that second half. Legend was quite a bit more brutal when I rode it, but Ghost Rider is at its smoothest right now. They both share extended lateral helixes (Helixi?)

^^ I don't either. Where was it located, in the park? :?r

The earliest I have been to Knott's is 1975, but don't remember it back then.

^^Yup. Greezed Lightening, aka Whirwind. Used to be on the spot where the scrambler and gliders on the Boardwalk are now, next door to the old Dolphin/Skate Show Theater.

Didn't know it still existed (barely). Where is that?

It operated from 1976 until 1999 in the Roaring 20's/Boardwalk section of the park, it was removed for Perilous Plunge.
