What An Intense Loop!

Sunday, February 10, 2002 4:08 PM
My last coaster of the 2001 season was the Revolution @ Libertyland in Memphis, TN, and I have to say that it was the most intense loop that I have ever experienced.  What is your most intense loop experience?

Wild Country USA is coming to Desoto County, Mississippi Memorial Day Weekend 2004! 5000 Acres and 8 operating world-class coasters on opening day! Do the words Giga, B&M, CCI, and Arrow 4D sound familiar?

Shockwave at SFGAm, on the third loop I would start to blackout everytime I rode it last season, except for when I rode it at Fright Fest for some reason.

Boomerang at SFDL going backwards. It is just plain intense. Your head and upper body get pushed forward at it is just great!

They don't come any more powerful than these due to being so circular... http://www.coastergallery.com/2001/AW17.html

There will probably never be loops built that strong again :(

I gotta hand it to the third loops on SGAdv GASM or SFGAm Shockwave.  Blackout material right there.

I would have to say the 2nd vertical loop (the slightly tilted one) on Mantis...before they added the drop trims.  My knees have never felt the same since.

Does CCI know how to make a bad coaster?

 I'd agree with Nate, Swartzkoaph (srry if it's mispelled!) designs were all intense loops, it's hard somewhat to keep those hands up in the loops or loop! ;)

Ditto on Shockwave's third loop (SFGAm) and X-Flight's loop.  Also, does anybody remember Mantis's loop before the trims?  Made me black out almost every single time (in fact, that, I believe, is the reason why CP added trims).  Although I haven't ridden them, the loops on Shockwave at SFOT and Mindbender (Edmenton Mall) are supposed to be among the most intense anywhere.

 Shockwave @ SFOT, was the one of the coasters I rode in January, that was the most intense Shwartzkoph coaster I rode! Especially in the loops! ;)

Yeah, Isn't that ride closed for reasons that have nothing to do with the intensity of the loops?

Going backwards on Greased Lightning, Shwarzkoph shuttle loop. When you go through the loop, it pushes your back forward, it is kinda undesribable, unlike any other coaster feeling. Pretty intense.

Going backwards on Face/Off at PKI.  Can you say "blackout"?:)

I love going backwards through the loop on Greased Lighnin at PGA. The back seat provides the most intensity.
