Maurer Söhne designed this custom spinning coaster to resemble a giant pinball machine with the cars being the machine's balls. On Sonic Spinball the four-passenger cars are designed to spin uncontrolled for the most of the 1,476-foot long journey, which makes each ride aboard this roller coaster unique.
