    That would be a very quick MCBR. A 170 ft drop, then probably another element at 130. I would think the MCBR would have to be at 110 ft. to pull off the inline twist and dive like on X-Flight.

    I saw a kid at SFGADV wear a shirt with the name "Numerator" surrounded by an explosion. It sounds like a name Cedar Fair would use. This ride will probably be some version of a "-hawk."

    The inverting drop could always be first and then the straight drop after the MCBR. It could help to conserve space by sending back towards itself after the first drop. I think that's a big reason SFGAM had their's built that way. If Cedar Point wanted to build a good size wing rider but have it fit in the space they have, that could be a good way to do it.

    A straight drop off a MCBR is better than an entry into a downward helix. On the Time Machine you can see the descent kicks the train into a bank.
