I was just curious as to how many of these coasters are left in the U.S.? The only one that I can think of is Viper at SFoG which used to be the Tidal Wave at SFGAm (Man, do I miss that ride!) Schwartkopf did a great job on this ride back then. I just checked PGA information and the other shuttle looper that I know of is Greased Lightnin (Formerly named Tidal Wave).

In Angola, Indiana, there is one called Afterburner. The park is called Fun Spot. The last time I was on it, I was like 10-11. I thought it was cool because I liked roller coasters, and it went backwards. The ride ops were dumb because they would let us re-ride even if no one else was on the loading platform. This sucked because we had to run down 5 flights of stairs and then up again.
Where did the Python go? It was at Adventure World (SFA) but was removed (I suppose for Two-Face, good choice =]). It was much like the old 'Screamin' Demon' at Kings Island, with the six flights of stairs yada, yada, yada.
P.S. Remember all the boomerangs and invertigos are shuttle loopers too....
Paramount's Carowinds in Charlotte North Carolina had one a long time ago. It was called White Lightning (for good reason to!). I just found out that it was bought by a theme park in South Africa and moved there shortly after it was torn down. That's one more in the world.
There is another one from Schwarzkopf It is in Belgium in the theme park Walibi WAvre which is rumoured to become Six Flags Belgium in 2001. It once was called Scorpion but in 1997(?) it got stuck in the looping and was rethemed for the next season. It is now the Turbine with an enclosed looping.
