here are a couple more. Drop of Doom and Scream.

Drop of Doom had a couple weird bumps going up. I guess that's why it shows 3 airtime moments. Or it could have been something at the end of the drop by looking at the graph.

Hope to get some Knott's rides next week.

But super cool app!

26 airtime moments! I mean ik TC has a lot of air, but something tells me it's not that much

^Recounting with the POV's, there are 23 drops/inversions on Twisted Colossus...not including the little pre-lift bumps, some of which are kind of forceful. I believe it!

I guess if the app counts inversions, transitions, and the pre-lift hops I could see how it would draw that number. Now I really want to see Steel Vengeance

I tried it out on my iPhone XS in my zippered pocket today on Reese's and Kisses Triple Tower, but every time I try to look at the detailed results, the app crashes and takes me out of the app and back to my home screen. I checked to see if it is the latest version and it is.

^ You were at Hersheypark and didn't think to use the app on the big rides?

This is awesome! I don't have an iPhone or Apple Watch, but it's so cool to see the graphs you guys are posting.

Have you considered plotting altitude vs time, color-coded by -- or overlaid with -- the force data? That would give a sort of stretched-out track profile.
