    I'm sure there's a term for this, but I don't know it.

    What do you call it when a coaster jolts you out of your seat at a forty-five degree angle -- sort of half-upward and half-sideways?

    Some coasters I experienced this on: Invadr, Grizzly (KD), The Comet (SFGE), Boulder Dash. I'm sure there are many more.

    It's a banked/twisted airtime hill I guess.

    I usually say 'sideways airtime', not sure if there's a consensus around that one. Experienced it on Lech Coaster, Formula 1, Wicked Cyclone and... Apollo's Chariot :eek:

    If there's anything you'll experience it on it would be Steel Vengeance. However, I've experienced it mostly on Mystic Timbers.

    Yeah, I haven't experienced this on Mystic Timbers, at all. The biggest culprit of this is Taron, after the first 'straight' hill (first launch).
