Twisted Twins/Twisted Sisters is a wood, twister, dueling roller coaster. It was built by CCI and designed by Larry Bill and Dennis McNulty. It was built in 1998. It is 75' tall, and it is 2,641' long. It has a large capacity, long duration, it is fast, fun, and rerideable. There are two unique trains, one named Lola and the other Stella. They embark on dual tracks and oppose each other 3 times during the course of the ride.
Ive rode both sides several times over a 3 year period and to be honest its probally the worst coaster I have ever rode except ofr maybe Son of Beast. Its too rough and way too boring, only thing really good about it is the cars themselves which have a cool look to them, and also the fact that one train passes by the road so you can wave at people driving by.
this is a very fun coaster to ride. :O
I saw no sign indicating names for each of the trains, but I believe I was on the blue train. I remember looking over and saying, "Wow what a strange color train over there," so Im pretty sure the other side was pink. The coaster couldnt have been half full when I rode both times. I had the second to back seat and just stayed on it. I unfortunitely didnt get a chance to go on the pink train.
I was looking forward to this, Im a huge wooden coaster fan, and this was my first CCI. The ride started out with three or four good high speed turns BEFORE the lift, and I wondered how they got the train to go that fast before a hill. The first drop was great, as I got a lot of air surprisingly. Then I thought that CCI really was all it was hyped up to be. Unfortunitely I didnt like much else on the ride as a number of the hills were capped off too high to produce any air. I remember a few moment of completely straight track and really there werent many good turns or hills that really got my blood pumping. I only counted two duels; one on the first drop and one mid ride, but I guess there is one more somewhere. My favorite part of the ride was probably the hill and headchoppper after the mid ride duel as it was one of the only well-done elements besides the first hill.
There were a lot of good lateral G moments, and I guess CCI is famous for those. I know this ride had more potential than it executes, and I can see why CCI is a great company, but I know this is not one of their better rides. I was not very dissapointed, but I think this was the worst major coaster at SFKK, thus the average rating.
These are really two coasters with the dueling element being nothing spectacular. On their own, they are quite good, except for those light weight Gerstlauer trains.
I didnt hate the ride. I didnt love it either. Lots of "blah"-ness to it. I got little to no air, the layout is pretty uninspiring, and the dueling features arent done well at all. Not one bit. The trains suck, but the ride wasnt too rough for me so that didnt matter. How it wasnt rough, between the G-trains and CCI insistance on limiting banking, is beyond my coherence. However, I will also give them a good word for running both sides and dispatching at the same time - this is the only time I saw this on a regular basis other than on Lightning Racer, very cool. Neither side stood out as better than the other. However, a dull ride with nothing terrible warrants a pretty standard score.
I can go sleep on this coaster. It is so boring.
The cars on this coaster are really cool/attractive, and the ride is pretty long and enjoyable. They often do not have both sides working, which is sad, and the coaster is on the tame side overall. It has steel supports rather than wood, which does not make it as visually appealing as Thunder Run. But it does give a fun ride and is worth riding a few times!
Rode on Stella (Blue Side) the only side running. I would have liked to see both sides running. First off these restraints are horrible on a woodie with violent turns. The restraints are inverted U shaped made individual for each seat. The problem is that it bangs the hell out of your legs if you sit in the back, ruining the lateral gs. Sit in the front and you just dont get a wild ride. This is one of the few woodies that I will say is too painful. In the back the first two drops eject you out of your seat but it is too painful to enjoy. The last helix into the station makes the restraints dig into your legs.
This ride was hard for me to find, as the park is badly layed out. Only one side was open, and surprise running only one train. I only rode once, and I dont remember much about it excpet I didnt feeling like waiting for a second ride.
