Cosmic Coaster

Details of The Cosmic Coaster

The Cosmic Coaster includes a starting hill of 97 feet drop that once the ride gets halfway it goes straight into a loop with a diameter of 33 feet. After the loop the ride turns in to a corkscrew that turns in through the inside of the loop. The ride finally finishes with a second corkscrew after the rest of the 97 foot hill.


No ride has a loop and 2 corkscrew and one going through the loop.
