The lift hill has been topped on Dreamworld's blue and yellow Cyclone. Track pieces are lying beneath the ride waiting for installation so there shouldn't be much more waiting before Cyclone is finished.

P>ONT face="Verdana, Arial, sans-serif" size=2> ONT face="Verdana, Arial, sans-serif" size=2>Actually, Big Dipper looks better in its old location, where there trees, a building, and the helix over the water was a beautiful setting. It gave the ride a more fit in and settle look, also adds to thrill. Never the less, its original location is better than being built on a plot of dirt. I hope Dreamworld adds trees and some theming to it or the ride will just look thrown out there. I just noticed something strange, B>both loops are athe very end of the ride!/B>/P>

What type of ride is this, an arrow mega looper???

Wow! I sure hope they do get the second lap bar train. That could start a new revolution of lap bars for old Arrow coasters.

I second that! (Pun intended.)
Ride It; I have the layout somewhere in my room - can't find it for now. You can figure out the layout from these old photos I took.
B&M ROCKS; it's an Arrow Junior Hyper/Double Looper.

Taipan: Thanks for the link to the photos. Quite an odd layout. Can I assume that was a custom job by Arrow?

It is a custom Arrow with 2 inversions. After the lift, it turns 180 degress, and then does a straight drop. it curves upward 180 degress and runs along the lift, the cuts another 180. It then zigs zags near the inversions, and does an upward 270 degree helix into a half boomerang, and a vertical loop before hitting the brakes.

Mamoosh: you're welcome mate.
Kraken got it. It was custom designed to fit in LP. Coney Island (gray building in photos) was in the way, so Arrow put a helix & two inversions behind/next to it. Quite often people were surprised when they got off the ride as those elements were hidden from sight. I'm sure people who hate being inverted received a nasty shock on this ride :).
