# Can we clear up this whole inversion thing?

Monday, March 19, 2001 2:01 PM
Correct me if I'm wrong.
Viper at SFMM has the tallest VERTICAL LOOP at 140 ft.
Volcano has the tallest INVERSION at 155 ft.
Here's where it gets a little fuzzy.
Superman: Krypton Coaster has the LARGEST loop?
I just want to clear this issue up once and for all.

Superman: Krypton Coaster has the tallest loop. VIper has the highest off the ground, and Volcano has the highest inversion off the ground...

I thought that S:KC had a loop at 165 ft. Am I right is saying this? IF so, then it qualifies for all three of these records. *** This post was edited by CPgenius on 3/20/2001. ***

For starters

Then we have a whole other debate on weather X or those inverted turns on Millennium Force count as inversions. I doubt anything can be made clear.

The first "real" inversion on X is a reverse dive loop that Arrow is calling a raven turn. This inversion is suppose to be around 160-170ft tall. If this is true, the debate over whether the flipping counts as inversions would be a moot point. At least from that aspect.

i doubt SKC`s loop is 165 ft tall when the ride`s drop is 170 ft. it`s just not possible, it`s actually BKF at round 140.

SKC's loop is defintely bigger, or maybe even the same.

SKC's loop can't be any taller than 160 because its intial drop is only about 170 ft. Viper's first vertical loop towers 144 ft, not 140, just a small correction.
