Does anyone know which park is it being built at and how is it coming along?

Yes, its a record breaking coaster, but 4 consecutive inline twists? Uh-oh!

Actually. It's five!

But the last on is in the opposite direction.

Its the 4 consecutive ones I'm worried about, like being in a washing machine.

No, it's not 5 consecutive inline twists. There are 4 consecutive ones, and 1 by itself.

Do your own homework!

Inline twists - what ever the direction, are still inline twists. There are five in a row. Nuff' Said!

Hey!! Now call me pedantic if you will, and I don't appreciate coaster know-it-alls either, but I must insist that there are 4 in a row, then a 180 degree bend to the left, and then the 5th. Either way, I'm not going on it after lunch!! *** This post was edited by colin mcwilliam on 8/12/2001. ***

Ok Ok, I'm not trying to be a know-it-all!!! That was a bit of a joke! Call me that thing you said you were, but I dont appreciate people being TOO serious about a little inversion!!
I just think that there are five in a row, simply because they are the final five inversions.
For arguement's sake - your right, Colin! *** This post was edited by Dan the Coaster Fan on 8/12/2001. ***

Dan,! they're all zeroG rolls anyway!! is there a difference?

I don't know...5 inline twists sounds great to me !!! That's my favorite part of B:TR.
Current favorite coasters:
Wooden: 1) Beast 2) Raven 3) Son of Beast 4) The Boss 5) Timber Wolf
Steel: 1) Raging Bull 2) Millennium Force 3) V2 4) Wild Thing 5) Mr. Freeze

I have only heard the phrase " ZeroG roll" on an inverted coaster,not on a sitdown.

welcome one and all, y'all come have a ball!
Things a bear-y fine, ridin' on the old knott's bear-y line!

ever heard of Kumba, Millennium?

There are lots of names. The inversion on Kumba is called a Camelback acording to B&M (they do have names for their inversions apparently!) but this Zero-G roll, seems to have come from Islands of Adventure, as they say the Hulk has a zero-G roll. Does it really give zero-G?? I would have though it would be high in the laterals.
Again for arguement's sake, an Inline Twist, is the same as a barrell roll, which is the same as a heartline twist which is the same as...and so on!

If we get too into the semantics of what inversions are called, maybe we need a fighter pilot on this board...just kidding, keep on coastering!

Whoa, thats wierd. Half of the ride you are doing inline twists. The endless possibilities
