Accelerator rollback question
Question on rollbacks

Alright so I was wondering, have any accelerator coasters ever rolled back multiple times in a row? I saw a stupid video where someone was obviously slowing it down/speeding it up/ stopping it. It did spark some interest for me. Anyone know if this has actually happened?

You'd think it could happen 2 or even 3 times in a row but I believe somewhere I might of heard they launch a little harder after a rollback. The ride operator doesn't put it in "turbo" or anything, the launch mechanism just does it. If not, most rollbacks are caused by wind, and a sudden gust of wind will go away and not keep blowing like wind does. (There's not a helicopter up there or anything). KK and TTD I know for a fact close in very windy or very damp overall days. Smaller accelerator coasters typically don't roll back as much.
