Anyone know what coaster this is?


Recommended Posts

A pic of this coaster was used on the textbooks we use to have for the High school I went to. All the while, I've been wondering what coaster it is...and never mind what I said about vekoma.

I hate math, but I love coasters. What a combo. Lol.

Both of them look like Arrow/Vekoma's from the track/train design.

 

By the way, speaking of school books and coasters... I get to talk about rollercoaster designs/physics/history to 10th grade science classes for volunteer service hours in April! Going to be so fun trying ot explain that sorta stuff to the "GP"!

Is the textbook in the OP Australian? If not, it's a bit random to pick the Corkscrew of all coasters. Maybe that was the one the publishing company just found in the stock library used.

 

That said, I love the Corkscrew , great little coaster despite its short length and still awesomely smooth to ride. Shame it goes on a boring maths textbok though.

We had a similar one for Grade 11, though I could never figure it out...

 

 

No logo on the front of the train, either. Kinda looks like a snake (Viper?) or at least it has scales.

 

That's gotta be Sidewinder from Elitch Gardens. Or some other Arrow shuttle, because of that walkway at the bottom of the loop.

The coaster on the cover of the mathbook in the first post has an unusual feature---a left-hand corkscrew. That picture may have been printed backwards, as there are very few Arrow or Vekoma corkscrews with a left-hand twist. A flag in the background looks like it could be the French flag, but I wasn't able to tell for sure.

 

Those are a couple of clues as to what ride this is.
