HYDRA The Revenge
The first inversion, often called the "JoJo Roll" by enthusiasts, happens as the train leaves the station and before it even goes up the lift hill! Hydra is the second coaster in the United States that features an inversion before the lift hill. Red Devil at North Carolina's Ghost Town in the Sky was the first coaster to have this distinction. However, that coaster, which has been called Cliff Hanger since 2007, sat dormant from 2002 to 2008, ran a few months in 2009, and is now "Standing But Not Operating" again as the park has been closed for a few years.
