The Amusing Ads Archive - Togo 1995

You have to admit, it's a pretty good ad. If only the rides that Togo created were as good as their advertising!

The company was known for their Stand Up, Heartline, and Ultra Twister style coasters, though the rough reputation of these attractions always seem to proceed them. Only a handful of Togo rides ever opened in the U.S., and now only a few of those remain. Probably most notable of them is the "Roller Coaster" at New York, New York in Las Vegas.

From the ad above it looks like they were hoping for their "mega heartline" coaster to take off, though we all know how that turned out. Rest in melted down pieces, Viper.
