Shuttle Roller Coaster Records

Superman: Escape From Krypton Six Flags Magic MountainInformation about record breaking shuttle roller coasters. To qualify for the shuttle category the roller coaster track must not form a complete circuit, thus requiring the train to travel both forwards and backwards during the ride.

The record categories for shuttle roller coasters are:
Angle of Descent | Height | Length | Speed

Tallest

The height of a roller coaster is measured from the tallest point of the track to the ground directly below. While some roller coasters may use tunnels or ravines to increase the drop, this does not increase the height.
