Does anybody have any insider info on this design? I love inverted coasters, and this could well be the first to surpass Nemesis' glory (then again, maybe not).

I don't have any concrete information, but I've heard it's likely to be a Vekoma, as the park's other coaster is too. It's also worth noting that Fantasy Island's claims are not to be trusted - they said Millennium Coaster would be the biggest looping coaster in Europe, which is plainly isn't, so who knows how Odyssey would turn out? To be the tallest in the world, it'd have to be over 195 feet, and I'd love to see that but somehow doubt we will.

What I have read is that it is an inverted Vekoma similar to the SLC TraumaTizer at Pleasureland. It is said to be considerably taller then the Big One at BPB. That's all I know about it at this time.

Jersey Joe PS: Cal, check out my pages for a nice shot of Kumba. I know how much you like that ride!

Now I know I'm not strictly Cal, but I had a peek at your page Joe. I hadn't seen them before - excellent photos. And there's even some which allow me to put names to faces around here..

Great pictures, Joe - and it's nice to think I've ridden a lot of those!

Hey, Moose, glad you liked the photos! I have more to add, eventually, it's just that I've been so busy lately. I'm glad I put those URC poster photos up, because a lot of people have e-mailed me to say they like the fact they have a clue who their talking to. I'll let you know when I update the pages.
