Other information

  • This ride is called Hyper-Twister Roller Coaster in RCT2, and the 4-across train appears as an alternate train for the Steel Twister Roller Coaster in RCT1.
  • In RCT2 and RCT Classic, the six-seater trains for the Hyper-Twister would incorrectly focus the ride window on Car 2 rather than Car 1 when selected despite that these trains do not have an empty head car. This has been fixed in OpenRCT2 as of v0.4.2.

In Real Life

The Hyper-Twister Roller Coaster resembles the Bolliger & Mabillard Sit-Down Hyper. These coasters can go to heights of over 250 feet and can have many airtime hills. An example of this roller coaster in real life is Nitro at Six Flags Great Adventure.

When using the narrow 2-across, six-seater trains, the ride resembles the Giovanola Mega Coaster. Two of these rides were built, and both are in Six Flags parks featured in RCT2 - one is Goliath at Six Flags Magic Mountain and the other is Titan at Six Flags Over Texas. The two rides are similar, with Titan being slightly taller (but having an identical height drop) and having an extra helix before the mid-course brake run.
