Great coaster for introducing young ones to going upside down. Smooth, and very fun. Not intense at all. - Jeff K
Still a great ride. A great starter ride for kids. Anton Schwarzcof built this one and it still gives a great ride after all of these years. - Joe Schwartz
This is an awesonme scqwawrf coaster - Steven D
Ride at night. The lack of lighting makes this usually-okay ride a very exciting one. Lap bar restraints are very comfortable on this ride. - Jamie Bennish
SooperDooperLooper is an amazing and historical ride. It was my 2nd Favorite ride at HersheyPark. The lines were almost non-existant and it was a very great ride. After the loop it takes a great big break with a bunch of swooping curvs and a tunnel. Definetly a MUST-RIDE!!! - Dakota S
i enjoyed this ride. the line usually isn't long, which is great on really crowded days. with a little optimism, the trees seem to whoosh by. great warmup coaster before great bear, and the loop has some serious Gs. - Victoria Jurkowski
Nothing special here. Very little thrills, not very smooth, dated but still an okay warm-up coaster. - Derrick O. Foreman
