This has been bothering me for awhile but there was never a close enough picture to tell. But is it just me or does the inline twist not look very smooth? It just doesn't look like it flows well. Almost like the first piece over-rotates and then the second piece goes straight for awhile then continues to roll. It may be just my imagination, but to me it doesn't look like it flows. I'm sure it won't have a major affect on the ride at all, just a thought.

It's coming in from a really steep upward helix (or "carousel"). So I'm certain part of that curve on the first part you mentioned is the track ending the carousel, then it straightens out before transitioning into the roll.

I think it also has to do with the turn prior to the inline. That straight-ish piece might be the point where your body is transitioning from the positive vertical gs of the helix, to the lateral gs of the inline. I'm pretty sure its shape a particular way for the forces to smoothy transition from one to another, rather than jerk from one type of sensation to the next like an old Arrow.

You know... Holiday World was never on my "Must Visit" park list. I can say that Thunderbird has changed that. I can't wait to get out to the park and experience their new coaster!!

 

It should be on your list. It's a great park even beyond the awsome coasters.
