The Dolphin Jumper

Yes, of course it flips.

This silly little dolphin gets wound up by your classic spring and gearbox mechanism. It then gets aimed towards a ramp, and once the tail hits the ground as the dolphin ascends the ramp, the pre-loaded spring shoots the dolphin forward through the hoop, doing a flip, and landing on the downramp.
