^A "roll", singular, is typically where the track goes from standard position to upside down while traveling in a fairly straight line. Barrel rolls are like this: http://rcdb.com/1412.htm?p=6546 and zero-g rolls are like this: http://rcdb.com/80.htm?p=1320

Cobra rolls kind of break the terminology there... but what are you going to do, we're bad at keeping standards ;)

It sounds like this supposed roll in the valley is a zero-g roll, but I'll hold my breath until the announcement or photos are posted. With all the surprises this coaster has thrown, who knows what's really been spotted or what the track is actually going to do.

This B&M donkey is so smooth!

I'll catch on soon enough, I just hope whatever they do it's not another SoB!

The announcement is coming soon like within a week or two, right? Is that when parks release specs?

Let us not forget that this ride has given us the all new element. Guy's Inverted Camel Toe. GICT for short. :lover:

I am Guy and I approve this message. =)

It could be like the Carousels that have the ringy dingy ding-a-ling dings you have to grab! That really would be amazing.

And within 30 minutes, the site is now password protected...The double barrel roll was the final element just before turning in to the brakes/station, and there looked to be a few decent airtime moments and two big overbanks throughout the rest of the ride!
