Who's going to make the next new Inversion

Tuesday, August 13, 2002 8:03 PM
I've been thinking about this for a while but I don't really know. I believe Arrow made the latest Inversion being the Raven Turn. Since B&M has been so quiet lately...I think it;'s going to be them. But, Intamin has been making a few Mega Loopers so they might try something new.

with every new type of roller coaster a new inversion is coined eventhough it has appered on other types of roller coasters, so it will probably be on a B&M flier or a 4D if arrow survives.

I mght be wrong, but isn't it B&M's Pretzel Loop. And I'm not sure, but is the stengel dive considered an inversion?

I was gonna say what you said stitch, I also thing B&M has the latest inversion with the pretzel loop found on S:UF, and also i agree that the stengel Dive is NOT an inversion, but rather an element.

I think those barrel rolls on V2 at SFMW are much more different than any other inversion to classify them as the latest inversion.

Ya know, I think a vertical loop on a 4D would give new meaning to the term loop. Now that's what I've been thinking about a lot. Anyways, what other types of inversion are there to make? I know 4D's a flyers will give a whole bunch more, but what others? What about a zero-g roll that is like a cutback. Kinda like a Stengel Dive but goes all the way upside down. That might cause severe headbanging though...:(

I think that someone should have a launched full circuit that launches into an inclined in-line twist like on the modified V2. That would be tight.

The Stengel Dive isn't an inversion. It is a hybrid combination of an overbank and a hill.

I know an inversion they could make, a Foldover! That's a zero-g roll half way then goes back the same direction. not a complete 360 degree turn, 180 degrees then back! ;)

Thats what PlayerPunk and Speedy were talkin about I think :) You described it a lot simpler though.

Ohh, I C it now, yeah, you guys know what I'm talkin' 'bout, you know, whoever owns Rollercoaster Tycoon, they can make a Foldover on it, just make half a barrel roll left or right, then stop, make the other half the opposite way, if left turn it to the right, if right turn it to the left. You see! ;)

That would definitely be some trick track. lol. That's sounds kinda cool.

I agree with crash. B&M fliers and arrow 4D's will have the newest inversions.

I just thought of an inversion! An Immleman (sp?) followed by a dive loop or vice versa (I know they are the same, you go through the half loop first in the immelman, and then go down, a dive loop does it the other way around). It would look like a heart!

Why is it that we don't see more inclined loops?

The only coasters that I know of which feature inclined loops are RR at SFMM and Mantis at CP and those are both stand ups.

I wouldn't mind seeing an inclined loop used on a floorless or inverted or better yet on a flyer,that would be sweet.
