Someone should build a coaster with an underground loop - where you'd plunge into a tunnel, like the bottom of the first drop of Raging Bull, but there would be a loop ! Or, a corkscrew might work better, since they wouldn't need to be as "deep". Or...some sort of hybrid between a Flight of Fear type coaster and a hyper twister - where the coaster appears "normal", but at some point enters a dark building where the elements/inversions are hidden. This would be so intense !
Current favorite coasters:
Wooden: 1) Beast 2) Raven 3) Son of Beast 4) The Boss 5) The Legend
Steel: 1) Raging Bull 2) Millennium Force 3) V2 4) Wild Thing 5) Mr. Freeze

Luna Park Sydney's Big Dipper looks like a Junior Hypercoaster but has two inversions, a Sidewinder & Vertical Loop hidden behind Coney Island - a large building. Most of the peeps don't know this & they get a surprise. Those who don't like inversions are in for a nasty shock! :)
Lethal Weapon Pursuit @ WBMW Germany has the loop for each track hidden in a building & a Barrel Roll as both tracks exit; www.coaster-network.com/bm/intamin/pursuit.htm

This is a fun video & the Roll is mind-boggling.
The Taipan, Australia's most venomous snake - also the name of my model coaster in personal photo.

well as most of us know, Space Mountain at DLP does have inversions inside its building(3 actually) But if you knew nothing about the ride, The Inversions will really catch you out and you could get a Big Suprise depending if you like inversions or not.
