Zero-g rolls are the best element a ride can have. They even sometimes feel better than the drop. The back seat feels best on this inverion. But, do zero-g rolls feel best on inverted, floorless, or sit-down coasters? Forget the giant loops, why not add a giant zero-g instead? You will actually feel like falling out. Please reply with what you think of this great inversion.

The thing with Zero-G rolls on inverts is...they really don't feel like a zero-g roll at all. they kinda hold you into the seat because they rotate you around the track instead of actually rotation the track around you. Intamin, OTOH, has the right idea with invertedt barrel rolls. the fact that the train almost rotates around you is extremely cool.

I think B&M should have never named the invered's 0-G roll a 0-G roll at all. On B:TR, I was stuck to my seat, blacking out! It was cool and all, but hardly 0-Gs. Too bad they can't construct them like the do on sit-down loopers, or you'd probably end up with a red out (if the train went through accually on your heartline, like it should.)
------------- Hey, SFGAm managment, can I buy a couple cages of Sky Whirl?
Right on! Kumba was my first true 0-g roll, and still is my favorite. ------------- "Thank you for challenging the Raging Bull. We hope you enjoy the rest of you're day, here at Six Flags Great America."
I hear ya Buzzo. I thought I was gonna get flung out. I have never felt like that on a coaster. I went from my seat to floating and back down all in matter of seconds. It was the best feeling I have ever had on a coaster.

I agree, it's the best inversion on that coaster. I haven't been on too many others (Top Gun at PGA and Batman at SFMM) but of the ones I have been on, it's the best. :)
