The Tennessee Tornado @ Dollywood is a megalooper without a vertical loop.

the first inversion on Tennessee Tornado is a loop!
Anyways, all the old Arrow corkscrew coasters had no loops (the second generation ones did, though). Ultra Twister, X, and a couple out of the ordinary coasters don't have loops.

The first inversion on the Tennessee Tornado is a loopscrew, which most closely resembles a B&M diving loop. The T.T. has three inversions: 110ft.tall loopscrew, Bowtie element. check rcdb.com if you wish, I believe i'm right (even though I've been wrong before)

Aside from standard Corkscrews, I believe that DF is the only Arrow coaster with inversions but without a vertical loop.  While the Tennessee Tornado does have a vertical loop-like element, it is called a "loopscrew" and is quite different from Arrow's standard "teardrop" loop.

I could be wrong, but I think that DF would have been the only Arrow coaster with something resembling a zero-G roll, had it not been replaced by the camelback following the first drop.

TT's first inversion is a vertical loop, no matter what Arrow calls it.  The only difference is that there's just a very slight bend in the track at the top of the loop.  It's not like a diving loop that turns the train 90 degrees.  It only turns like 10 degrees.

i hope your joking, but if you arent...
first of all, PR doesnt have any inversions so its not a looper, 2nd of all, its a morgan coaster (cept for the first drop and lift)

Well, of course I was joking... geez!  (and I hope there's not seriously a kleptomaniac deranged monkey in your pants, either. ;) )

Anywho, PR isn't technically a Morgan coaster.  The drive mechanisms, computer programs, rolling stock (except for seating) and, yes, the first two hills are all Arrow.  It's a hybrid, and was built as a looper, it isn't any more, blah blah blah....

pervert, im not the master of my genetalia.  and im pretty sure that PR got a new computer to deal with the entirely different layout that PR has.  or maybe it was just a good update op, who knows...
 
and PR is almost all morgan, it is a hybrid, but it is a morgan.  everything after the top of the 2nd hill is morgan, so its morgan because there is more morgan than arrow in it.

Okay, I'm not arguing, I'm not flaming, but I know where I'm coming from being that I helped build the thing.  The computer and its program are the exact same for PR and SP.  No changes were made since the only part of the ride that was altered was the "gravity section."

This whole thing started as a joke, and I'm about to just delete all of my posts in this topic.  Morgan is 90% of the track and the top half of the trains.  Everything else is Arrow.
