A Schwarzkopf looping roller coaster. The first roller coaster with back-to-back vertical loops.

I am so tired of seeing people at the park look at this coaster and walking off saying it looks too "kiddy" it is everything but kiddy. this is one of few coasters that are actually traditional looping coasters such as revolution and texas the frontier cities silver bullet and not modern multi inversion high speed coasters such as superman and hulk. I hope this ride is not reaching the end of its life

Not sure how this coaster made it into Amusement Today's Top 50 - not sure at all. Slow, dated, dilapidated, and sitting right on the edge of a highway, this clunker is past its prime. Way past. The double loops still bring the trills, but the rest of the ride is a real dog. Woof!
