It is being called the first impulse coaster. It is a LIM launched inverted shuttle with a vertical twist on one end. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it will go about 75 mph!!

Well, it's actually the second. The first was the Liniar Gale in Japan. They go 70MPH on the last "push" of the LIMs.
