Steel roller coaster

(Redirected from Steel)
A steel coaster.

A steel roller coaster is a roller coaster that has a track made of steel. These roller coasters have earned immense popularity in the past 50 years throughout the world. Incorporating tubular steel track and polyurethane-coated wheels, steel roller coasters have the ability provide a taller, smoother, and faster ride with inversions, unlike traditional wooden roller coasters.

Arrow Dynamics first introduced the steel roller coaster to feature tubular track to the thrill industry with their creations of Matterhorn Bobsleds at Disneyland Park in 1959 and Runaway Mine Train at Six Flags Over Texas.
