could anyone tell me the technical name for this section of coaster? It's on the 'Scream' at Magic Mountain too.

Thanks in advance.

That is either known as a zero-g roll or a camelback.

But normal humans simply call it a Zero-G Roll ;)

B&M aren't normal guys. They're swiss. They drink lots of cocoa.

B&M have also called it a "revolution in weightless condition." It seems there is no set terminology on the part of the manufacturer.

That is clearly the mind altered rantings of men loopy on spiked cocoa :)

"Mommy, why do Walter and Claude smell like my math teacher?"

Clearly the mind-altered rantings of men loopy on spiked cocoa after a marketing "guru" has coached them...

People claim that the "Kumba-thingy" is a different element from a traditional zero-g. Something about having a sharper change in angle at the top or some such thing.

I haven't found much difference in any zero-g's. (Though inverts are slightly different from sitdowns)

Is this really a technical question? Sounds more like nomenclature to me. ;)
