I was at Knoebels this past Saturday (7/9) and there is a sign posted where the Whirlwind once stood that states Knoebels will be getting a "vintage Looper" this season. Does anyone know anything more?

No idea, and everyone I know that MIGHT know something wouldn't tell me anyway....LOL!

Herschel Looper, flat ride, as has been discussed ad nauseum on here before.

It's an old Allan Herschell flat ride sometimes known as the "Hampster Cages."
I'm too lazy to find a picture right now but Whalom Park has/had one.
Chance had a modernized version called the "Rok N' Roll."
The ride has been site all season (I saw it on opening day near the Whirlwind's old spot). It might be out getting rebuilt/repainted right now.

You mean we can't get the Herschell Looper *and* a looping steel coaster? ;)

Do you really want a *vintage* looping steel coaster? They just got rid of one!

If we can PRY that Anton shuttle from the SFMW parking lot, then YES, I *do* want a Vintage looping steelie... :)
