Will AIR have inversions????

I was wondering if AIR will have inversions...If it doesn't, well, then the Vekoma FD will still come out on top i think...however much I hate to say that. Can someone answer this question.

A great coaster doesn't need inversions. Ever heard of hypers or gigas? And they do have enough height at Alton to make inversions. Most likely, they will be zero G rolls and corkscrews although Nemesis had a vertical loop. My guess is that if B&M makes it, it will be good. And if this one doesn't have them, others to come will. I don't think a company like Vekoma would ever get a better reputation than one like B&M. I'm sure their flying machines will come out on top.

A Vekoma "coming out on top" of a B&M? First for everything, I guess. ;)

It just that not having inversions would be very weird....I don't know why but I hope it does...regardless it should be a great coaster!

Technically, the whole ride is an inversion. Anything else would be an anti-inversion. ;)

I think (This is about 80% accurate) that there will be only one inversion on the ride. This seems viable after looking at the footprint, which is a very short layout with only about four turns in it. I really hope B&M/John Wardley doesnt dissapoint, if they do, they can wave goodbye to their squeaky clean reputation.

Doesnt Alton Towers have that tree top limit, meaning nothing can be built above treetops? I think it is so you might want to kiss a hyper away
