Phaethon (Gyeongju World)

Postby Simba » Wed Jul 25, 2012 1:41 pm

Phaethon is a steel inverted roller coaster at Gyeongju World in South Korea, which is opened in 2007. It is South Korea's first inverted roller coaster, built by Bolliger and Mabillard. The track layout is similar to Raptor at Cedar Point, except Phaethon has no mid layout block brakes, and two corkscrews.

That does look fun! Biggest problem is that it's all the way over in South Korea. :(
