Just an idea

But surely someone would have spotted them in the carpark, and they wouldn;t just leave them outside in the snow. Also where would the old cars go.

What looks like a board is what I believe to be a support beam with supports either side to allow track to go underneath this piece of straight track.

Smiler most inversions on a coaster although 2 dont actually count.

Also someone earlier mentioned about Oblivion's cars changing to floor less, i doubt they would because that would mean re-designing the station wouldn't it ?

If you look at the picture on the left you can make out ever so slightly the snow on the track which I have shown on the right image. If you flick your eyes from the right to the left image you will see it. Now from the other end we have seen the track make a downward left turn and go even more banked which the only thing it could really do it complete a barrel roll and level out on the straight track above.
The only problem I have, is the lack of brake fins on that current straight track. If there is to be a secret element after the barrel roll then they are running out of space to brake the train in time, have room for a washing machine element and also fit the lift before you reach the concrete slabs that have been constructed to keep the wall back at which the 1st lift hill will travel above.
