I was shocked at how much this structure moved when the trains went by. While all wood coasters have some give to them, this ride gave way more than I have ever seen on any other coaster. Even the rebuilt section at the top had a ton of lateral movement.
The trains on Twister were built by Philadelphia Toboggan Coasters. The old PTC trains were comprised of five 2-row cars. In 2003, Elitch Gardens began using new PTC trains with four 3-row cars.
