Sidewinder

For roller coasters called "Sidewinder", see Sidewinder (disambiguation)

Sidewinder on Millennium.

A sidewinder is a roller coaster element that inverts riders once. It can be found in over 80 roller coasters.

It consists of the first half of a vertical loop followed by a half-corkscrew. The train exits the element roughly 90 degrees to the left or right. It can also be taken in reverse.

The sidewinder is somewhat similar to the immelmann and makes up half of a cobra roll.
