Mindbender at Six Flags Over Georgia
Mindbender is a Schwarzkopf looping coaster at Six Flags over Georgia. It was said to be the first ride to flip guests upside down three times, although the second “loop” is just a highly banked turn.
The ride starts with a very slow lift to the top of the first hill. At the top we take a turn before diving down to the ground. The first loop is circular so it creates some powerful g-forces (the correct way to make loops is to have them look like upside down teardrops). After the first inversion we fly up another hill where we take a turn and dive into a ravine, this is where the alleged second inversion is, it is shown in the foreground of the picture above. We rise up again and then dive into the ravine a second time, up another hill where we turn around and fall into the ravine yet again. This is where the real second inversion is, it’s another circular loop. The train rides into a tunnel and around a turn before the final brakes.
Mindbender was a bit rough. The loops are kind of painful too. I am giving it a 5 out of 10
