A Wing Coaster is a roller coaster model line designed by Bolliger & Mabillard which features winged seats. Riders are suspended on either side of the track, secured with over-the-shoulder restraints.
Intamin has developed a similar ride, known as a WingRider. It is actually an Accelerator Coaster with modified trains that suspended on the sides of the track. The only ride of its type, as of 2012, is Furius Baco at PortAventura Park. Intamin also has another similar ride, known as a Wing Coaster. It features traditional above track seating, with additional wing seating. The only two coasters of this type, as of 2021 are: Skyrush at Hersheypark and Flying Aces at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi.
This ride is similar to a 4th dimension roller coaster. However, their cars spin, while Wing Coaster cars do not (they stay in a stationary forward position).
