    Yeah, Six Flags in San Antonio...this just looks like a neat twist on a rollercoaster. I know the travelling carnivals have had kid versions on a merry-go-round on for years...too slow

    NUTS! Another idea I had and never thought to persue!

    I love riding the twisties, love to drag a boot edge, peg, centerstand. Yet, I literally cannot "stomach" rides like Batman and others which have you legs dangling below you while stapped into a seat. At Cedar Point back in 2001, I did one ride on the Batman in the morning, and spent the rest of the day doing metal calculations of the coasters sitting on the ground.

    But later in the day I rode a coaster with the "car" hanging from a track above, with a bar to grip ahead of me. I thought, "hey, like a bike!" I enjoyed the ride anticipating the turns and leaning into the corners. Got me thinking, someone should make a coaster ride like sitting on a sport-bike in the hilly twisties, sitting on the seat with my hands on the grips.

    Those would be even more cool if you could control your own speed and actually race. I'd love to drive into one of those 360 degree loops.

    It would make one appreciate the feeling folks have when they are sitting behind us...they also have little control...well, except for the rib punches
    Those loops look pretty interesting!
