What coaster has the tallest loop?

Thursday, March 1, 2001 7:38 AM
This isn't the tallest inversion. I tallest VERTICAL LOOP. Doesn't BKF have the tallest loop? The tallest loops I thought are:
Batman Knight Flight
Riddler's Revenge
Mantis
Kraken
Montu
Alpengeist
Raptor
(No particular order)

Well, I have heard it was Superman: Krypton Coaster, but the actual height of the thing seems to be in question. I know for sure that Medusa West's is taller than RRv, Mantis, Kraken, and all the inverteds. Also SFMM's Viper is up there, 145' I think.

The Viper has the tallest loop. The loop of Superman: Krypton Coaster is the biggest loop.

I have heard that the tallest inversion is the first vertical loop in the Hulk Coaster.

The tallest loop is on Superman: Krypton Coaster which stands at 160ft. Viper has the highest loop off the ground, but it is not higher than S:KC's.

ummm, is that possible? the height of the coaster is only 168 feet and I don't think that the train can pull that much momentum to make that loop.

You are correct Everdred, except that Viper's loop is shorter than S:KC's anyway you look at it at 144 ft.

Doesn't Superman: Krypton Coaster drop into a big pit? I guess that could extend the drop, making it possible to go through a 160' loop.

Eh, just throwin' that out there. I really have no clue on its stats or layout.

Your all wrong. on Extreme Rides 2000. They said Volcano had the tallest Element on the earth at 155ft I think. It beats Viper, Any Inverted, Any Sitdown Coaster, Any Floorless coaster. Except SuperMan; KC. SO its Volcano or SuperMan.

No, your right, but not on the right subject. We are talking about the BIGGEST LOOP, not highest of the ground which some say is viper. Its the BIGGEST. Which is Superman: KC.

Lynch it does, but that's included in the drop. You also have you to take into account that the train picks up a considerable amount of speed in the turn off the 175 foot lift, before dropping. By the way, it was Claude Mabillard who said 160 feet, I think he's reliable enough. *** This post was edited by Millennium Force on 3/1/2001. ***

I highly doubt Raptor would've been able to get even nominated for highest loop. The ride is only what...130 or 140 ft. tall? It would have to be a loop that is like 100 ft. tall.

Now if we are talking about how high the loop is when it starts then viper can be included but if we are talking about how high it is when it start then viper wouldnt be in. since viper goes up like 120 ft before it does a loop.

Millennium Force has the Biggest Loop at 169 feet ;).

Does anyone know the Loop which has the biggest radius ? I think whatever one that is has the right to be called the biggest loop

The world's biggest loop belongs to Superman Krypton Coaster at SFFT with an amazing height of 160 feet. Don't believe it? Tell it to Walter Bollinger, who said that height at SFFT opening day.
