Of the eight TOGO stand-up coasters, five are still in operation. Here
is a complete list of the stand-up rides and their current status:
- (1979-present) Momonga Standing and Loop Coaster at Yomiuriland in Japan. It operates with one stand-up and one sit-down train.
- (1984-2001) King Cobra at
Kings Island. Stored until scrapped in 2006.
- (1985-present) Standing Coaster at Rusutsu Resort in Japan
- (1985-2014) SkyRider at
Canada's Wonderland. The coaster, seen here, was relocated and became
(2015-present) Freestyle at Cavallino Matto in Italy
- (1985) Star Jet at Expo'85 in Japan. Coaster was relocated and became
(1986-present) Star Jet at Brazilian Park Washuzan Highland in Japan. Operates with one stand-up train and one backwards facing sit-down train.
- (1986-2015) Shockwave at
Kings Dominion. Was offered for sale for a few years, but ultimately was scrapped.
- (1991-present) Milky Way (formerly Ultra Twin and Fujin-Faijin) at Greenland in Japan. Consists of two side-by-side tracks. Originally
used stand-up trains on both tracks, now has sit-down trains on one track.

closed down permanently shortly after this accident.
