Does anybody know the name of the coaster at the South Florida Fair? When I was down in that area for Christmas I saw some commercials for the South Florida Fair and they showed a coaster in them.
Does anybody know the make also? If so then we could add it to the database.

If you are thinking of the double looper it is called the Dopple Looper or something close to that.

If it's the coaster I'm thinking of, it's probably Conklin Shows' Doppel Looping
, a Schwarzkopf looping coaster remarkably similar to the Lazer
at Dorney Park.
One thing to be careful of in managing a database is that the coaster in question is portable. I saw it DDM in Tampa in 1996; I rode it in Toronto last fall. Perhaps the best way to identify such a coaster is not by the location where it operated, but rather by the carnival that owns it. In this case, Conklin Shows.

I rode that ride last March in Dade Co. pretty good.
