Year of the first Shuttle Loop?

Thursday, December 21, 2000 12:51 PM
What year was the first year of the shuttle loop coaster. Also when was the first Antwon Schwarskof (spelling, no idea) coaster built in a park.

Some other rides I would like to know the first year operating are:
-Swinging Boat
-Top Spin
-Break Dance
-Alpine Bobs
-Monster (at CP)
-Flying Carpet
-Dumbo Ride at Disneyland
-Himalaya (at CP)
-Arrow Log Flume

I think that is all, but if you know any more flat rides that are not on there, and the year they were introduced, fell free to put them in a post.

Please help if you know any of these, Thank You. *** This post was edited by Feel_The_Force on 12/21/2000. ***

It was '76, at the launch coaster capitol of the world, Kings Dominion, I think it was moved to Great Brittain where it has an indoor loop now (?). Have you been to Schwartzkopf CoasterNet? It's all there......

I am making a RCT park, and it is going to be realistic, and I want the rides to open in the right year.

Originally, I said: "I thought the first shuttle loop was in Myrtle Beach or Ocean City... I'll look."

After about five minutes of searching, here's what I came up with. - p_c_r is correct. King Kobra, PKD, 1977-1986. Then it was moved Jolly Roger Amusement Park in Ocean City from '87-'89.

If you care, which I'm sure you don't, I've been there.
