I was looking at some pics of this coaster and it just made my mouth water. I love Schwarzkopf coasters and I couldnt help but notice the 2 sweet loops that only Schwarzkopf could create. How is this coaster?
========================= "The Peoples Elbow" or "The Spinaroonie?.
Cant decide which is the most electrifying move in sports entertainment!!! LOL

The lift is hysterically slow, but once the ride gets going, you really feel the G's. Laser is a very good little coaster.

Basically it's a real nice Schwarzkopf portable, and that's a pretty good thing for a coaster to be.

The Laser is awesome and it is actually my favorite coaster in the park!
I have grayed out between the first and second loop, and the positive g's on this ride are intense. Yes, the lift hill is insanely slow, but it's worth the wait. So when you see a big line at Steel Force or Talon, run over to the Laser and spend some time there instead.

Don't let the small size of this coaster fool you... it packs quite a punch for being so small. If you want to ride it more than once in a day, I'd reccommend spacing out your rides. Once is enough to make even a seasoned coaster rider a bit dizzy!

It's a Schwarzkopf Doppel Looping
, just like any other Schwarzkopf Doppel Looping.

Yes, I agree that you could read a newspaper going up the lift of Lazer. As for the ride, man is it intense! What got me this time out wasn't the loops, but the two helix-like turns. Can you say excessive g-forces and gray-outs? I know you can.

The lift is horibly slow and I think it somewhat adds to the ride with antipation.

And what would a Schwarzkopf coaster be without his legendary excessive g's?..I thought the coaster was a huge surprise. When I was riding it, Scorpion immediately popped into my head. Those two coasters are soo much alike..Well, except for the fact, Scorpion's lift hill is a little faster.
Dayuum, Your HOT!

I dont know about anyone else, but I black out on that ride

Laser was my first Schwarzkopf looper (sadly there aren't many left in the area of the country I've been to). I was totally blown away. This is why I'll take a short but almost-too-fast-to-stop-in-the-brake-run coaster to one that's long and slow. It's amazing to me that thing is a portable.
The thing that immediately caught my eye as I was waiting in line was the turn coming out of the second loop. It doesn't look right. At first I thought, "quick transition, very Arrow-like, not good." It exits the loop and grazes the station. Smooth as glass, just amazing.
They just don't build them like this anymore, folks!

Damn fun coaster, also one of my favs there. I was thinking the same thing about the turn out of the loop. But I never noticed any roughness or anything from that transition. Just a whole lot o fun in the front or the back.
Any resemblance to living or

one of the coolest looking rides of that time period. I enjoyed that thing back in the early 90's

True, except I can't think of another Schwarzkopf that gives THAT much anticipation time before the first drop...kept wanting to get out and PUSH the train up the lift...

I really love the Laser. Its a great little coaster. Excellent layout for being compacted in such a small footprint. Schwarzkopf was the man back in the day. :)
