Are Togos really that bad?

10 posts in this topic

Togos coasters is somthing me and the miss's have allways wanted to give a shot at riding, allways thought back when RCT3 first came out that they where just some Wacky coaster idea that would only exist in a game and yeh could't believe my eyes when I first seen a video of one.

Do coaster company's still manufacturer these types of coasters?

Manhattan Express at NYNY rides horribly. It beats you up, is slow and boring after the MCBR but doesn't actually make you wail in agony like a particular YouTube POV would have you believe.

From what I remember of Thunderbolt it was much worse.

I've only been on two, the Vegas one, which I notice has changed it's name again - lol, maybe they change the name occasionally so that lawsuits record against a previous name of the coaster. Boring and painful.

The stand up at Canada's Wonderland was pain free, but boring. I did ride it defensively though.

I'm glad not too many Togos escaped Japan. I absolutely marvel at the ineptness of design of Winjammers at Knott's - though the park did sign off on it.

I have never ridden one myself but the story of Togo Coasters has always interested me as well. From my understanding any Togo coaster in its homeland of Japan are generally much more bearable than their overseas counterparts. Hence Togo were able to make Fujiyama, which was at the time the tallest coaster in the world (and probably the fastest too, I'm not sure). Whatever caused Windjammer, the coaster that killed Togo, to be so horrifically painful to ride and unreliable beats me but it was bad enough for Knott's Berry Farm to drown them in paperwork XD
