Upside Down, Atlantic City, c1901
America's first inverted roller coasters emerged around the turn of the century to the delight of thrill seekers at amusement parks and midways throughout the East coast. They may have been exciting, but comfortable they were not. This Flip-Flap coaster opened on Atlantic City's Young's Pier in 1902, mimicking one from Coney Island that had a reputation for jostling even the toughest passengers. It was replaced in 1912 by a less torturous ride.
