Ultra Twister was a steel pipeline roller coaster which operated at Six Flags Great Adventure and Six Flags AstroWorld in the United States. It was built by Japanese company TOGO.

History[edit]

The ride was built by TOGO and opened at its original location at Six Flags Great Adventure in 1986. It only lasted three years and closed in 1988. The plot where Ultra Twister stood was left empty until the construction of Viper. It was then moved to Six Flags AstroWorld where it was repainted and subsequent changes to the ride were made.

Six Flags AstroWorld closed permanently on October 30, 2005. Six Flags relocated rides such as Serial Thriller, which became Ednör - L'Attaque at La Ronde to be reopened or put in storage at other parks. Ultra Twister was relocated to Six Flags America where it lied in storage for a number of years before being scrapped.
