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.

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