Awesome Helicam Video of Hades 360

The above video of Hades 360 at Mt. Olympus Theme Park was shot by the Roller Coaster Database - just another reason to love that website!

The video was taken with a helicam, and shows off the new elements that have turned Hades into Hades 360.  That's mainly the enormous inversion that you can see the new Timberliner train roaring through, but also the highly overbanked turn immediately after it.

And just for good measure, here is a shot of Hades 360 completing the inversion as well, taken by the ride's designer, The Gravity Group.  Looks nice!  A few years ago I wouldn't have thought that we'd be looking at an inverting wooden coaster here on NPN... pretty neat to see how fast things can change in this industry we love.
