Other information

  • The ultimate speed of this ride is controlled by the length of straight track - to achieve maximum speed, a very long length of acceleration track must be built before the slope upwards.
  • The ride is called Reverse Whoa Belly/Freefall Coaster in RCT1.
  • Track loops are not allowed on this ride.

In real life

  • There are currently 2 operating reverse freefall roller coasters in the world. One is a dueling version in Six Flags Magic Mountain (featured in RCT2), and the other one is in Dreamworld Australia. Until 16 January 2011, none of the rides had the trains run backwards, as they returned facing forward. These where manufactured by Intamin AG.
