well, you start going straight up, turn 90 degrees lateraly (sp) KEEP going up,
flip at the top 180 degrees head straight down, turn 90 degrees in the opposite
direction, and level out....hard to picture??...try taking a paperclip, and
unbending the middle part from the outer part so that it kind of looks like an
"L"...that's SORT OF what it looks like..

I have always wanted more of these type of elements.  The Cutback or Dogleg
on Dracken Fire was the first one that I know of to perform this maneuver.
Granted the Top Hat is much taller with long straight but they are very
similar too.  I think B&M will produce an element like this one day.  Yet I
would like to see a new twist in it.  Once the train is heading straight up
have it perform a 360 deg heartline twist.  Then the Invert.  Upon the
descent they could have another heartline twist or just a straight drop
towards the ground.  The combinations are boundless.

It looks like a bell curve, but tall and thin.
