- The difference between the Hypercoaster and the Hyper-Twister Roller Coaster is that the Hyper-Twister can be banked on a slope and that the track on the Hypercoaster looks like Arrow track and the Hyper-Twister track is B&M track.
- In the original RCT, the Hypercoaster was built by selecting the Corkscrew Roller Coaster, by NOT using inversions in your track design and selecting Hypercoaster Trains.
In Real Life
This ride is based on the 'Hyper Coaster' by Arrow Dynamics and DH Morgan. The first was built in 1989 at Cedar Point and now there are five Arrow Hyper Coasters built around the world.RCDB Entry
The style of the cars and track, however, appear to be based off of the "Big One" at Blackpool pleasure beach.
