Shuttle Loop

 A Shuttle Loop is a type of steel launched shuttle coaster designed by Reinhold Spieldiener of Intamin and manufactured by Anton Schwarzkopf.  A total of 12 installations were produced between 1977 and 1990. These 12 installations have been located in a total of 22 different amusment parks.

DesignEdit

The train is launched out of the station at a speed of between 53 and 60 miles per hour (85 and 97 km/h) before passing through a vertical loop and up a 138-foot-tall spike (42 m). Once the momentum of the train run outs on the 70° spike, it begins to traverse the track backwards. Upon reaching the station, it passes through it and goes up another 70° steep spike which stands at 105 feet (32 m) tall until it stalls again and rolls forward back into the brake run and station.
