With this photo of John and Draven in the back seat it is pretty easy to see that you get plenty of airtime as you come rocketing over the top of Sky Rocket's "top hat".

Sky Rocket is the first coaster at Kennywood to have inversions since Steel Phantom turned into Phantom's Revenge in 2001.

Sky Rocket's first inversion is a "cutback".

The cutback is a highly banked turn around that is banked enough that you are inverted.  It is a fun way to change directions and flip you upside down at the same time.
