    Tall riders on launch coasters

    Hi everyone. New here, but have been enjoying posts for quite some time. I have a question regarding the headrests on Kingda Ka and other launch coasters, like TTD, Maverick, etc. On Stormrunner my head had to be held back, face facing the sky with the top of the headrest poking my head...

    What makes a launch feel forceful?

    Hi guys.

    Lifthill speeds and launch intensities

    Carowinds | Copperhead Strike | Mack Dual Launch

    Surprised I didn't find a thread for this, but according to Screamscape, Carowinds is set to get a new Mack Rides Double Launch coaster in 2019! http://screamscape.com/html/carowinds.htm This is quite the leak, especially if it turns out to be true! Also yay a proper Mack in the US!
