Screaming Condor is a steel launched inverted shuttle roller coaster located at Leofoo Village Theme Park in Guanxi, Hsinchu, Taiwan. It is a Twist & Spike (56m) Impulse Coaster model manufactured by Intamin, and was the only Twist & Spike to be built without a holding brake. The ride opened in 2001, and is the oldest operating impulse coaster still in its original location.



Screaming Condor has a long, straight layout with two "spikes" at either end. One spike is twisted (twisted vertical rollback) and the other straight (vertical rollback). Riders are launched forwards and backwards up both spikes using LIM launch technology.
