^Well...They basically look the same. The only difference is the direction the train goes through them.

I can definitely say I prefer dive loops to immelmans. I wish Virginia had a good dive loop but I can settle for the second half of cobra rolls.

Yesterday at Great Adventure, I overheard a girl telling the person she was with that during Fright Fest they "twist the tracks on Batman" in the opposite direction.

Dive loops and Immelmanns look very similar, but dive loops enter from the top of the inversion, diving into it, hence the name. Immelmanns enter from the bottom of the inversion. Fun nerd fact, the inversion is named an immelmann after a German World War I pilot who developed the maneuver for aerial combat.
