Apocalypse, Gold Rusher, X2, and Twisted Colossus at SFMM all make left u-turns toward the lift hill, but that same park also has other coasters that turn to the right.

This is one of those odd questions that I've never thought about, but I'm seriously pondering it now that it's been brought up. :lol:

Coasters don't turn to the right. They turn to the left three times.

Have you ever been to a park outside of Texas?

Twisted Timbers literally only makes right turns. So you can assume all other coasters must too

How are we going to quantify coasters with multiple lift hills such as Twisted Colossus or The Beast? And what about coasters with extensive pre-lift sections such as Thunderation or Kennywood's Jack Rabbit?

Maybe the designers didn't watch enough NASCAR growing up?
