Take A Trip On Abismo

And this is Abismo at Parques De Atracciones in Spain. It's a Maurer Sohne extended SkyLoop roller coaster, and I think it looks like fun! I can't comment on the restraints as I haven't been on it, and those would be important as you hang upside down that high off the ground!

It opened in 2006 and is the only Maurer Sohne extended SkyLoop coaster that's been built thus far. It's closest American relative is X Coaster at Magic Springs, which has the first section of the above ride only.

It's still a pretty short ride, even considering it's an 'extended' version of the base model. Unique it is, though, and I can only imagine what an even bigger one than this would be like!

Believe it or not I've actually been on this ride. Positives: The sky loop is great and that part where your just hanging staring at the track upside down is awesome. Also when you fly through the station and youre thinking the thing broke. The restraints are cool but painful. Negatives: Its short, the loading is aweful, nad it breaks down a lot.
