Getting way off topic, I have been on a few alpine coasters with lifts.
Also, can confirm: frightened people in front of you suck.
Without derailing the Orion thread anymore maybe it’s best to have an alpine coaster thread.
Seems as though my quick research has returned a mixed bag as to why an alpine coaster isn’t a Giga. I’ve quickly seen lack of continuous drop, user controls, lack of lift (despite some having one), top speed. Seems like a very mixed bad as to why alpine coasters have their own classification outside of height.
