12 inversions? The current record for NA is 9 which is held by Steel Curtain. I could see SF going for that record
Coaster Count: 142 total 94 steel 48 wood
Favorite Steel Coaster: Skyrush at Hershey Park
Favorite Wood Coaster: A tie between The Voyage at Holiday World and T Express at Everland

Another thing I discovered is if you add all the coasters with inversions in SFGADVs history together you get 11 (lightning loops counting as one) which means that if this is a coaster it would be the 12th with inversions.

I think it's 12 crossovers. West Coast Racers has a similar number of them. Dueling Raptors?

^ My thought, too. Possibly the number of interactions, like how WCC has 14 (at least per RCDB). This would make sense if it’s a dueling coaster like many of us think.

Aren't there usually 12 cars on a scrambler?

That's true, but Great Adventure already has a Scrambler.

Hmm...I'm not seeing how that would stop Six Flags from buying a scrambler.
