The pretzel loop looks like a very cool element, but not any more revolutionary than the Cobra roll or anything like that in my opinion.

You guys are all acting like you've never seen it before. That pic was available like last month. I have to say, though, it really does look like a pretzel;)

I agree, and it will be the same type of revolution like the raven turns. This element will only be possible on flying coasters and 4D's, just like the raven turn.

SFOGeorgia,

I thinkn it is very possible we could see this element pop up on a floorless, inverted, or other variation coaster in the future. Of course, it would have to be modified a bit, but the shape of the element would be very similar. Let me explain.

Imagine you are riding an inverted coaster. You head up into what looks like a zero-g roll, but as soon as the train is upside down, it rockets downwards to the ground, then back up, then once the train is upside down again, it would simply rotate so riders are non upside down.

A simpler explanation could be a ' zero-g roll with a loop'. The prototype version of the Arrow Pipeline had a similar element also.

The batwing inversion on Montu and Top gun is very similar to what the acceptable pretzel loop would be like on a invert.
