Aesthetically pleasing coasters

Sat May 19, 2012 8:18 am

I don't think there's a topic for this yet, so here goes...

There are many, many coaster out there and some of them look particularly awesome. Post pictures and information on roller coasters that you think look good, or amazing pictures of roller coasters, etc...

I'll start off with the reason I started this topic; Playcentre's Looping Star:

I love those colours! It's a shame they haven't been able to keep it looking quite like that now. :/

Here's an off-ride and its RCDB too.


So that's what I found. Would anyone else like give praise to any particularly good-looking coasters?

Aesthetically pleasing coaster combo! (Plus lake)

A photo I took at SFGA of El Toro, with Kingda Ka in the background, and the lake section of the Mine Train in the foreground.

Kumba's a good shout, but I'd say that pretty much everything at Busch Gardens is aesthetically pleasing. It's a beautiful park!

Why the HELL have they painted Crystal Wing yellow and blue!?!

EDIT : Ignore that initial post, I see that it's an S&S coaster!

^ It's one of S&S's recent air-powered launch coasters, remember seeing a video for it not too long ago, will have a look in a minute!
If you go down to the Towers today, you\'d better ride Th13teen. :P

They have.

It was a good ride, and now it's cheap.

Oh well, that's an aesthetically pleasing coaster ruined!

Another aesthetically pleasing coaster is, of course, Nemesis.

I've always liked the simple elegance of B&M coasters.  Couple that with Mamba's spectacular landscaping and you've got a visually stunning ride.

Enough said tbh! One of the most stunning looking rides in the country IMHO, even with its rust and oil stains!

It's a shame they leave it to rot.

That loop, dive loop and zero-g in the first picture looks insane, the track looks beautiful and the ride- and the park in general- is stunningly landscaped.

I totally agree, heading down the Ocean Boulevard on a sunny day, the track looks amazing.
