  • Dreamworld, Queensland, Australia
  • Magnetic induction shuttle coaster

Using magnetic motors like the Superman ride at Six Flags Magic Mountain, Tower of Terror (which has nothing to do with the same-named Disney drop tower rides) launches straight ahead, rises up an L-shaped track, stops at the top, and retraces its route backwards reaching 100 mph in both directions.
