Banana roll

Banana roll on Takabisha

The banana roll is a roller coaster element that inverts riders either once or twice. It is similar to a cobra roll but the track does not level out near the top of the inversion. It is also similar to an inverted top hat. Five roller coasters have a banana roll, with a sixth on the way.
