Wood

Son of Beast at Kings Island had a single inversion when it opened in 2000. However, it has been excluded due to the fact that inverting wooden roller coasters existed in the 19th century. Also, it's questionable whether this was a true wooden inverting roller coaster due to the loop being made of steel.
