I've heard that some people get tired of out-and-backs because the layout is so simple. I'm curious if that will ever happen to me. Personally, I like them a lot because of the airtime.


The only really good ones I've been on are wooden.


1. Giant Dipper (10/10)

2. Timber Terror (10/10)

3. Coaster Thrill Ride (8/10)

To me, I like the strict description of out and back. A coaster that goes out, turns around and follows basically the same path back. Examples are Blue Streak at CP, Racer at KI, RebelYell at KD, Starliner at Miracle Strip/ Cypress Gardens, for wood. Apollos Chariot for steel. Hands down, Blue Streak for wood and Apollo for steel. After that , there's modified O&B's, Modified figure eights, Dog leg O&B's etc, ie, White Lightning. All are good, but for pure out and backs, I go with Blue Streak at CP. Not to nit pick but there is a difference depending on how technical one wants to get. I like them all though, so any mods to the strictest definition dont really matter a whole lot .

I have always been a huge fan of Screamin' Eagle at SFStL. I think it's setting really adds to it, too. Same goes for GASM at SFOG, but its airtime is even more intense.


What was Dania Beach Hurricane's layout considered?
