Ultra Twister is a great coaster in my book. This was my favorite ride at Astroworld when I first visited many years ago, and I was eagerly anticipating riding again on my recent visit. It is so unique, and definitely the best Togo creation Ive come across. The clickety-clack trip up the lift hill is a little unnerving, and it seems very steep, even if it is just a 45-degree angle. I cant imagine what it would have felt like back when it was at a 90-degree angle. The drop itself is almost straight down. Weve seen steeper and much taller drops lately, but this one is still absolutely gut-wrenching, especially the way the car is sort of flung down it. We get a neat bunny hop before the first barrel roll. Two more barrel rolls are encountered on the backwards trip, directly below what we just did. These are excellent inversions. We execute them very quickly, but it does sort of seem as though it is somewhat in slow motion, as you can see the world spinning around you and you can feel yourself lift off of your seat while upside down each time. What an awesome sensation. I think the individual cars and the rings that surround the entire track add two more unique aspects to the ride. Heres an idea: When Astroworld closes, how about sending Ultra Twister to Six Flags Magic Mountain? It could take the place of Flashback, as both of them take up a comparable amount of area. This would put poor Flashback out of its misery and keep Ultra Twister close to me all the time!

Love the first drop. The climb up the hill on this coaster feels is very steep and the drop feels like it is straight down. The barrel rolls are tremendous and doing them in reverse is awesome. My only complaint with this ride is length...WAY too short. This is definitely a concept that Id love to see developed into a full-length coaster.

This ride ROCKS! If you sit in the front row, you get a great pipeline view. The vertical drop is really fun, and the secon hill provides alot of air. The rolls are fun too.

Interesting ride but at 6-3 the restraint system was very uncomfortable which cost it a point. Youll like the twisting action. Never rode one like this before so it will get memory points.

Ultra Twister = Put Me To Sleep this coaster should be a kiddie coaster. it is a Very boring ride. The only good thing about it would be the first Drop. After that I would bring something to rest your head on and go to sleep its a cool design and its cool how it goes from the top track to the bottom, but there is no thrill in this ride
