^I'm thinking it's just whoever wrote the piece coming up with a term for an inversion that's not a standard "loop." Or maybe you will be able to ride it backwards. Who knows... I know the animation is poor, but at least it's something new. That lift is going to be super creepy! A good thing of course.

That lift is one of the coolest things I've seen in awhile!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I love the concept of the lift looking out over the ocean, that's really cool. As far as the ride we'll just have to wait and see.

What's the reference to a backwards loops about? I may be being a moron (it happens quite often I assure you) but it looks forwards to me.


Gonna take a wild guess and assume they're talking about the immelman.

That lift is interesting, it's gonna make it a little more exciting than just a regular lift hill. Just praying the ride is good!

I think it's bad on their part to bill this as a classic reborn, but it does look like a quality ride - that lift should be fantastic, and the layout isn't bad either! Looks pretty on-par with something like Abismo, just replacing the inverted lift with that elevator.
1. Skyrush | 2. Maverick | 3. The Voyage | 4. El Toro | 5. Outlaw Run
6. Millennium Force | 7. I-305 | 8. Medusa: SC | 9. X2 | 10. Phoenix

Coasters: 290
Parks: 51

Counts I305 as 32 credits...

I also kind of disagree with the "Reborn" marketing as well.

It looks like a pretty fun ride though, and the lift hill seems to be the natural successor to the Volare spiral lift. Hopefully it doesn't end up terrible like the Volares are.
