Here's another bit of fun for you, hopefully self explanatory:

0 - Python in Bamboo Forest
1 - Flying Aces
2 - Twisted Colossus
3 - Eejanaika
4 - Nemesis
5 - Flying Dinosaur
6 - Pyrenees
7 - Helix
8 - Dragon Khan (default)
10 - Colossus
14 - Smiler (default)

Glad to see that's all the possible numbers for now, until the Steel Curtain falls.

Nice topic, an opportunity for more good use of the old spreadsheet.

0 - Shammy B (out of 182 ridden with 0 inversions)
1 - Hyperion (out of 12 ridden with 1 inversion) - special mention to Flying Aces
2 - Twisted Colossus (out of 19)
3 - Lech (out of 21)
4 - Nemmy (out of 12)
5 - OzIris (out of 12)
6 - Riddler's Revenge (out of only 1 - surprisingly)
7 - Helix, obviously (out of 5)
8 - Dragon K (only 1)
10 - Colossus (only 1)
14 - :)

I wouldn't have guessed my most ridden number of inversions (after 0) was 3 - I guess it's all the boomerangs which I'm counting as 3 rather than 6.

I never realised before that Steel Curtain will be the first in the world with 9 inversions. It will have the most inversions of any coaster on the continent too.

Interesting that I usually had to work further down my rankings the higher the inversion count, with the exception of my favourite “10” being higher up than my favourite “5” I suppose.
