    Veil of Dark

    Apparently this just opened up in Tokyo, Japan. Now, I did a little research on the ride and there are officially 5 things I absolutely LOVE about this ride:

    1) It is indoors
    2) It is a spinning coaster
    3) It incorporates the aspects of a dark ride shooter onto this ride.
    4) It launches. Yes, LAUNCHES!

    and last, but definitely not least,

    5) It has an inversion.

    Yes, this ride has a couple of worlds firsts running for it. The first launched spinner and the first spinner that has an inversion.

    I will be sure to post more about it when I get home.

    Edit: This resides in Tokyos Joypolis. Here is an article that features the ride:

    I heard at the 4:00 minute mark there is video of this coaster. There is footage of the girl with the curls getting on the coaster car, the car going through the curve into the inversion. Then some of the scenes are shown with the launch.

    There is the train in the inversion. It went from left to right.

    Did this replace the previous two person coaster that went outside, or was that at a different Joypolis?
