This came through my Microsoft Money investment tracker as news on Cedar Fair today ...
The picture's amusing in a "can't believe they didn't catch that" way. Not like it hasn't been done before, but it makes me snicker every time ;)

Either they fixed it, or I just don't see it.
But I can tell you that the photo is of likely the first flat spin. Labeled 4 here (http://www.dorneypark.com/public/inside_park/rides/thrill_rides/hydra/track_layout.cfm)
