What is a Wing Rider Roller Coaster?
With the number of wing coasters on the rise, I figured it was time to add a post about them in my series of Coasterology 101 posts. Wing rider roller coasters have seats positioned on either side of the track rather than above or below it. They look similar to 4th dimension coasters, but unlike those rides, the seats are fixed and do not rotate. The seating position allows for unobstructed views. They’ve also been referred to as wing walker coasters.
