Pretzel curve

The pretzel curve on Fluch von Novgorod can be seen in this picture on the left-hand side.

The pretzel curve is an element that is similar to a batwing, except it has two helixes. It consists of a continuous left or right turn which varies in radius such that, in the middle, the track passes either over or under both the entrance and exit of the element. The train exits the element parallel to the entrance, but in the opposite direction. It is found on Magnum XL-200 at Cedar Point and Fluch von Novgorod at Hansa Park.
