Twist Coaster Robin (ツイストコースター ロビン) is a steel roller coaster located at Yomiuriland in Inagi, Tokyo, Japan.

Unlike other El Loco roller coasters, Twist Coaster Robin was designed and manufactured in conjunction with Japanese company Sansei Technologies, Inc., the largest share holder of S&S Worldwide. This explains the unusual track layout, track and support style common on Japanese roller coasters.
