...Riddler's Revenge for actually having a custom B&M stand-up layout

 

 

What About All the Other Stand-Up Coasters? They're all Custom Layouts

 

Chang/Green Lantern and Mantis are similar... and I think he means with more difference than the other layouts.

One of the carnival companies in Ohio actually has a one of a kind coaster - its a shuttle coaster built by ARM with wing rider style seating. According to the internet, it sucks.

 

Also, somewhere deep in Australia's back country or something lurks Cool And Fresh, SBF's most retarded creation with its beyond vertical first drop and mag brakes the whole way down.

Most coasters are one of a kind in terms of Layout except a few for example Slc, Cyclone layout, Batman, boomerangs, superman flyers, etc...

 

THIS!

 

Also, look at Mitch's Poll. All unique coasters are listed while clones are grouped togther

Most roller coasters are unique in terms of layout or have unique elements, but there are relatively few that are unique by design. Here are a few one of a kind rides that immediately come to mind (both operating and defunct):

 

Arrow Dynamics 4th Dimension: X2

Intamin AG Space Diver: Flashback

Intamin AG Suspended Catapult Coaster: Volcano, The Blast Coaster

Premier Rides Dueling LIM Shuttle Loop Coaster: Batman and Robin: The Chiller

 

I'm sure there are plenty more, but these are the ones I usually think of as coasters that are unique by design.

Runaway Mine Train at M&D's was an obscure spinning coaster with a spiral lift hill made by Barbisan, called Jamming, which was later converted into a unique, but more conventional, mine train coaster with a straight lift hill.

 

Also, Cyber Space at Grove Land and Galaxia at Wiener Prater are pretty odd, also made by Barbisan. Fish shaped, roofed cars, sort of like a Chance Toboggan, and a semi-enclosed track layout, kind of like Pirate's Cove or whatever that thing is in New Jersey by Wisdom Rides.

 

Speaking of that, that Wisdom roller coaster Pirates Cove or whatever it was is a one of a kind, I think. Kind of pointless from TPR's POV, as well.

X/N0 Way Out, as it was the first backwards in the dark coaster and remains as the only one to date.

TH13TEEN, The first roller coaster to feature a free-fall drop

Ultimate, was the longest coaster in world when it opened and correct me if i am wrong but a lot of it was made in house.

I've been having a tough time with this question, even though it sounds simple enough. It seems like a lot of wooden coasters especially wouldn't have exact clones (or have lost any former clones to time).

 

That said, I think I've come up with a couple.

 

Ice Mountain Bobsled at Enchanted Forest, Oregon: Small terrain steel coaster designed in-house. Enclosed cars. Partial mountain themeing (enough to get it labeled "the poor man's Matterhorn"). The ride used to be a twin-track alpine slide before being converted to a coaster, and you can still see remnants of the other track.

 

Lost Coaster of Superstition Mountain, Indiana Beach, Indiana: Once a dark ride, this was converted into an unusual wooden coaster by CCI. It features an elevator lift, enclosed cars (each with two backward-facing seats), and various mountain-themed indoor sections.
