Twist Coaster Robin (ツイストコースター ロビン) was a short-lived steel roller coaster located at Yomiuriland in Inagi, Tokyo, Japan. The attraction was only operated in March 2014. It was closed and ultimately demolished after an incident in its opening month.

While it shared similar elements to El Loco roller coasters, this roller coaster was designed and built by Japanese company Sansei Technologies, Inc., the largest share holder of S&S Worldwide.

Incident

On March 19, 2014, a car ascending the lift hill rolled back around five feet and crashed into a car in the station. None of the three riders were injured.[1] After two years and many attempts to reopen the ride, Yomiuriland eventually demolished Twist Coaster Robin in March 2016.
