The Mind Eraser is a steel inverted roller coaster at three different Six Flags and CNL theme parks. Built by Vekoma, they are of the most common and standard Suspended Looping Coaster model that is found in many theme parks; at least fifteen other parks around the world have exactly the same ride under other names. The Mind Eraser was introduced in 1995 and was one of the first suspended looping coasters built in the world.
Ride experience[edit | edit source]
The train dispaches and climbs the 109-foot (33 m) lift hill, before dropping down a steep, curved drop. The train then enters the roll over, followed by a hill with a banked turn to the left. At the bottom of the hill comes a sidewinder (similar to an Immelman loop), followed by a 270 degree turn to the right. Next comes two inline twists. A turn to the left is then entered, followed by some banked rises and descents and the brake run.

History[edit | edit source]
All four of the Mind Erasers are Vekoma Suspended Looping Coaster models, also known as SLCs. They are the standard model. Dozens of SLCs identical to Mind Eraser exist around the world, and even more exist if you take into account slight modifications to the layout, and even completely different layouts.
