Insane Coaster Wars (TV Series)

Thu Aug 16, 2012 5:06 pm

Insane Coaster Wars

A US TV series from the travel channel taking a look at 4 coasters at a time which then go into a vote to see which the public think is top of its category. Here is a Link to the episodes for anyone who has missed this or yet to see it.

http://www.1channel.ch/tv-2734615-Insane-Coaster-Wars

While it does have that typical US style of program and some of the narration can be annoying the footage is top notch. I have to say some of the public votes are quite a surprise for a couple of categories.

Worth a watch at 20mins an episode. I prefer to use the putlocker links to stream the episodes but there are plenty of alternate hosts.

Episode 3 was a good one looking at 4 wooden coasters , check out the little boy riding EL TORO  his faces are brilliant.. Let us know what you think of some of the vote results too.

I'm sure it will be syndicated eventually, give it a year or two. It's on Travel in the USA so it will get here eventually.

Here are the direct Putlocker links for each episode so you can watch online right now.

For those who have never used it before just wait for the count down to finish then hit the continue as free user button. Close any annoying pop ups normally its just one with no sound. Then use the play triangle button to the right on the main window.

Episode 1 : G-Force Giants (July 14 2012) http://www.putlocker.com/file/2ECEB826BD4B4D9C#

Episode 2 : Hang Em High http://www.putlocker.com/file/71C64142E3E2FEA4

Episode 3 : Splintering Speedsters http://www.putlocker.com/file/77F3968D431B2E53

Episode 4 : Wrong Way Up http://www.putlocker.com/file/CDCEC27242ACD1D6

Episode 5 : Extreme Heights http://www.putlocker.com/file/4C425100252D9758

Episode 6 : Speed Demons http://www.putlocker.com/file/05C5BCE42035E20C

Episode 7 : The Top Ten  40mins  (August 14th A lot of repeated footage but interesting ranking) http://www.putlocker.com/file/A884312AA0440C3F


Contains a good mix of old and new US coasters running up to 2012. some very strange choices in there and weird categories but the footage is good. Enjoy ..

Any discussion on the results / ranking you might want to hide under spoiler mask so as not to ruin it for people yet to see the show.

I actually can't stand it.
Yes, a coaster program is great for someone like me, but most of the coasters are all "higher!" "faster!" or Six Flags.
