Description

Looking at the element from the side it looks very much like a pretzel and similar to the "Pretzel Loop" element used on flying coasters. In both cases, the train rides above the track at the bottom of the loop.  Since the train on a sit-down roller coaster rides above the track, versus hanging below on a flying coaster, the "Norwegian Loop" needs additional twists before and after resulting in something more resembling a dive loop followed by a juxtaposed Immelmann.
This element was first introduced on the Speed Monster at TusenFryd (Vinterbro, Oslo Norway).
