The forces in this are going to be crazy, this is by the best looking euro-fighter.
But it's just too short to be the best euro-fighter. Looks much better than Rage though.

I think this looks amazing!
And i don't care about how short it is, that's a part of the charm of it.
Also, it doesn't need to be any longer, because the amazing looking elements in the layout makes up for it.

OK, here's a top-down plan of the ride. This doesn't make the elements look any more "normal".



If that's a Norwegian Loop, it's the widest one yet, and what I thought was an Immelmann might actually be a cutback? Yikes, I need to get back to Texas and try this baby out.

Yep, because a Norwegian loop enters at the top, not the bottom :)

It's still crazy stuff though, here's hopnig for good trains and round track for a change ;)

^ Aha!

I say that there is 3, just to be simple. The overbank doesn't really count...

The overbank is more inverted than the loop though... ;)

Whoops, my bad.

Doesn't this ride *technically* only have 1 inversion?
I agree. One 'true' inversion. The rest aren't quite there, IMO.

Still looks fun.

Not sure of the sharks at either side, can't help but think it'd be better if it had one large one as the whole car, but, it's got F'KING LAP BARS <3

It does :) If you look closely the eyes are both pointed inwards. It's just that the mouth is... snarling? The middle is closed, but the mouth edges are open. At least I think so...

Yeah I can see what you mean now actually, it's just the angle of the photo, it looks VERY odd, I'd like to see it from different angles to see how it really looks.
