Description:The saxophone inversion consists of basically two hairpin turns traveled vertically.  During the first hairpin the car essentially falls over an edge and continues to curve downward - past vertical until it is upside-down and horizontal with the track above.  After traveling horizontally in this inverted position for a bit, the train enters what resembles the second half of a traditional vertical loop, thus returning the car to an upright position.  The second half of the inversion tends to have a larger diameter than the first.  Tracing this inversion from the point where the train changes from right-side-up to the point where it returns to right-side-up creates a shape that looks like a saxophone turned 90 degrees.
