Coaster Question?

Do you think an inverted coaster like Face Off or Two Faced would work as a complete circut coaster? I know some may not like the idea of riding the whole ride backwards, but others might. Would anyone be against this type of coaster?

What an interesting idea. I never thought of anything like that - it would be like reversing some of the seats on a Batman - type coaster. Some going forwards and others back is something that is occasionally done on racing coasters, often for special events - then one has a choice of which direction to face. Of course it involves turning the whole train around, not just some of the seats. Yes,I would ride such a coaster - try each direction just for a different perspective. But then, there's really no type of coaster I wouldn't try out - if I didn't like it I wouldn't ride it again.

There was a looping Soquet steelie called SooperLooper which used to be located at Lightwater Valley in England, and then a park called American Adventure, which had this seating configuration. I think the coaster was removed last year so I have no idea where it is now.
