Hey people, listen here I need input, I have never in my short life of 16 years been on an inverted coaster. For those who have rode Talon, give me just a short summary of what it is like, please!
Dorney Park just... rules!

Really, in my 15 years of life I have done a lot of inverted coaster funness.
Anyways, you go up a fast lift hill,and do a 120ft. twisting drop. Then you hug the ground at 4 ft. up before kicking the sky through the loop. Then, you hug the ground again before flying up and through the sweet zero-g roll. Next, you dive into a trench at 56 mph and fly up into the immelman. This is followed by a hard right turn into the incline twist in which you spiral at a 110 degree angle 35ft. above the earth. Then you catch your breath as you meander to the finale of the ride. You plummet under the lift hill and catch some air then they snap your picture. After the picture, you fly at a 90 degree angle and swerve up into the corkscrew. After the corkscrew, you suddenly fly into a tight helix at a near 90 degree angle. Then you drop down and cruise up to the final brake run.
The ride is so action-packed and intense it easily cruises up to my favorite invert spot and is one of my top-5 favorites. Enjoy!

Hey, don't forget, just because your 16, doesn't mean you havn't had as much time to go on inverted, the technology is only 9 years old! But Talon is like this: Awesome. It must be. How could it not be? It is the decendent of B:TR, and that is a great coaster, and pics of Talon make it look better than B:TR! Oh, if it is like B:TR, expect some good Gs on a few parts. (yeah, I know, the layouts are extremely different)
I can be rude. I'm going to try to be nicer on these boards from this date forward, May 21, 2001

Wildcat forgot to mention all the footchoppers from the supports and, canopys. Some areas the crossovers are so close it doesn't look as if a train yet even dangling legs will fit thru the opening. Also after the final helix there is a support the train flies toward just missing it. Talon has some great visuals. It's not the most intense invert but it's lots of fun. I love that Dorney has the queue in the center of the layout. Watching Talon run as your waiting only pumps you up more for the ride.
