RC70

Tornado, an RC70 installation at M&D's Scotland's Theme Park

With back-to-back vertical loops and a corkscrew, this was the largest Pinfari coaster and the only one with three inversions. The corkscrew was the first and only one built by the company. Two RC70 roller coasters were built. One, Tornado, is still known to exist today however its corkscrew inversion was removed in 2005 due to rider discomfort.
