Italian mythology tells of the god Apollo who stole his father's chariot that carried the sun across the sky. But the untrained son flew too high, then too low, freezing and scorching the earth. Now, this hypercoaster from B&M (renowned for its smoothness and grace) follows in his parabolic flight of weightless hills and oversized turns.
