I found a roller coaster today that I thought was interesting enough to share, mostly because it was actually in North America, and most roller coasters like it are in Asia. Called Sky Streak, it was a Sansei Yusoki Co. coaster, and it’s very similar to what we’ve seen from Golden Horse, Beijing Shibaolai, Senyo Kogyo, Togo, etc.

Among the more amusing parts of it are the super-angular lift hill,  a turnaround that appears to completely lack any banking whatsoever (and is followed by a laughably abrupt transition), a bunch of great transitions at the tops of its hills (ouch!),  and what was probably the most entertaining part of the layout.

With some coasters, it’s just more fun to make fun of them than ride them…
