Cutback

DrachenFireCutback.jpg

A cutback is an inversion similar to a corkscrew, except the second half is mirrored, so that the train exits the inversion in the opposite direction from which it entered. Cutbacks are more painful than over-banked hills, which feature a balanced excitiment and intensity.

Three roller coasters have featured a cutback: Drachen Fire at Busch Gardens Williamsburg (now defunct), Iron Shark at Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier and Sky Rocket at Kennywood.
