is the heart shaped inversion found on Vekomas SLC

This inversion is crazy, it would be awsome on a huge B&M where it would be smooth.

Medusa SFMW has this element. B&M call it the Sea Serpent. Vekoma call it the 'Heart-Shaped Rollover' and their LSM coasters have it - Superman The Ride at SFH and Rock 'n' Rollercoaster at Disney MGM Studios.

If you mean on a B&M Inverted, yeah, it would be awesome. However this may be an exclusive for Floorless machines as it is with B&M's other styles, i.e. Incline Loops on Stand Ups can't be found on other styles and SU don't have Cobra Rolls or Batwings etc.

I thought it was a sea serpent element to.What do they call the element? I think it would be cool to have on inverted coasters.The element makes me feel like im spin around in the air.On the rockin rollercoaster.:) *** This post was edited by # 1 coaster fan on 2/11/2001. ***

It is a sea serpent. It is the same element, just wider.

I enjoy the element on SLC'S and Rock N Roller Coaster more than a traditional cobra roll. Never been on Medusa.

I thought it was called a "sidewinder". Medusa had to market it as the first time it was ever used, but of course they are false. I also like the element on Serial Thriller.

Hey punk, but it looks totally different on Medusa. Way wider, etc.
