The track has been laid at Chessington for the new Maure Sohne spinning coaster, including the long-awaited first drop. It looks like the constructors have saved the best till last - like the Pepsi Max Big One, the turning drop is so steep the angled descent gives the illusion it's almost vertical.

See www.cwoaguide.com for more details and some superb photos.

Let's just settle one thing - Chris Bailey (the website author) calls the element after the drop an Immelman turn, but I'm sure that can't be right - I'd rather call it an overbanked turn, or, to be fancy, an alternative top hat. There's a similar turn on Spinball Whizzer at Alton Towers.

Immelmans keep the train going in roughly the same directios and involves a double inversion, right?

Yeah , its been open for a month now , not a big deal really as it can only manage 497 people an hour and its the same design as spinball whizzer and its Q is usually 2 hrs
