I was just wondering what your favorite type of inversion is, and on what type of coaster? My favorite is a Zero-G roll on an inverted coaster.

Really large loops like those found on Arrow's Tennessee Tornado. Also, Cobra Rolls on Beemers.
Is it just me or does Hypersonic look like one of those coasters you would see on Looney Toons?

I'm all about the cobra roll...Inverts, that is.
There's nothing like a woodie...

My two favorite inversions are the "heartline spin" (zero-G roll) on inverts and the dive loop like on Mantis.
You can laugh if you want, but I do like the roll over after the first drop on Vekoma SLC's.

Definitely Zero-G Rolls and the Schwartzkopf Shuttle loop (Nice and big!)

I love corkscrews on large Arrow loopers when you feel like you are going to fall out. This effect is best over the water on Anaconda at PKD and the height on Vortex's at PKI also increases the thrill.

On sit down I'd have to say corkscrews, you get the feeling of flight for a sec. On inverted whatever they throw at me is all good.
You build it, I'll ride it...eventually

I'd take B&M's camel-back over any other inversion. I got to experience it for the first time not long ago on the Kraken and again on the Kumba. It is much more exciting and gives much more air time than any other inversion I've been on.
In-line twists on inverteds are also good when they're long enough so as to not be too violent.

I basically live for Montu's Immelman and Kraken's heartline roll. Anyone who says their favorite inversion element is something other than a sit-down heartline roll, hasn't been on one. ;)
Just kiddin' of course.

'That Kumba thing', otherwise known as an inverted camelback. Floating while upside-down is a funky sensation.
Everybody calm down, the coasters do not open for another fifteen minutes.

My favorite inversion would have to be the first one on Hulk. Coming out of that tunnel, flipping right into that nice dive. yeah baby! Is there a name for this kind of inversion?

I would have to say the zero-G rolls on B&M sit downs (particularly Kumba's) are better than the ones on inverteds. Also, Manhattan Express' "twist and dive" is pretty cool.

I prefer the Cobra Roll's on Inverted's as well as the zero-gravity roll's.

My favorite is Zero-G rolls on Inverteds, and that unique pretzel element on Dragon Mountain at Marineland..

Sea Serpant on Floorless, Dive-Loop on Stand-ups and in-lines on inverts.

Well my absolute fav is the Vekoma SLC heart-shaped roll-over (and yes legendary, I have experience the 0-g roll on Hulk ;)) After that, would have to be Arrow boomerangs/B&M Batwings.
--who for some strange reason really liked the flatspins/wingovers/corkscrews on B:KF @ SFO.
By the way, as I know it, there are NO zero-G rolls on inverteds. The 'inline twist' is not really a zero-G roll as it is relatively flat as opposed to the parabolic shape of the zero-G rolls on Kumba, Kraken and the like.

Darn right, Goliath! Medusa West all the way!!
Although my vote would be the zero G roll on it, in the front middle right seat.

Well, I love all inversions, but if I had to choose my favorites, I'd say zero-g rolls, dive loops and the sea serpent element on Beemers. Peace. :)
Medusa at Marine World: the best in the west!

I'd have to say zero-g rolls and the large loops on sit downs and just plain old loops on the inverts(especially on Batman).
