It's actually really good! Nice pops of airtime and good pacing right the way round. The inversion is more of a marketing line than an actual inversion but it's a fun turn none-the-less.

I for one am very happy to have such a good ride only a short drive away instead of the usual plane journey!

^Great! I'll be visiting the park in September and I haven't really been on a lot of decent wooden coasters so this should be fun.
I think the Mr Freeze rides should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch ;)

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?
The G force is strong with this one.

This just confirms that the turn is overbanked (the angle is greater than 90°), not that it is an inversion. Granted, there is a lot of debate regarding the definition of inversion, but generally, it is when the track angle is greater than 135°. That is the point where the track is more above the car than to the side.

I've attached a crude drawing to show the angles that I am talking about. The last picture (bottom right) shows the track at 135°, which is right at the borderline of non-inversion and inversion. Any greater angle than this and it is definitely an inversion, imo. In the picture posted, the angle more resembles the 115° picture, which would be a stretch to call an inversion.

^ I understood your original post as "I don't notice the overbanking" or something like that, hence the screenshot. ;)

That was actually just my first post in this thread, I was replying to both you and Paradox, and I guess anyone who wants to try and call this an inversion :)

^ Mmmm just love it! Great video!

And the 'lines' are so clean and swift in the circuit of it.
(Just me trying to describe it...)

No inversions, and this coaster is just fine. :airtime:

I saw this video earlier yesterday and it's a superb video highlighting the ride. It's a fantastic ride too and the general public around there seem to be loving it. I'm really hoping some of the British parks take note of how successful Cu Chulainn is and bring more woodies!

^I don't think the fact the coaster is a woodie is what attracted people to ride in the first place. I feel that was more due to the fact its the first major coaster in Ireland. Still even though the ride has received great reviews I can't imagine Merlin or other British parks will take note. As long as Blackpool keep Wild Mouse operating I have all the awesome woodies in the UK I need :lol:

^. Yes. Blackpool's Wild Mouse is still one heck of an awesome ride.
