Olympia Looping (also known as Munich Looping) is a travelling roller coaster with five inversions. It is the largest portable roller coaster in the world, with a track length of 4,101 feet and a mass of 900 tonnes. The ride appears at many carnivals in Germany, including the Oktoberfest. The ride features five vertical loops that are positioned to look like the Olympic rings. The loops are more circular than on most roller coasters, this creates higher g-forces of up to 5.2G.
The roller coaster was designed by Schwarzkopf and Ing.-Büro Stengel GmbH and fabricated by BHS. The roller coaster was premiered at the 1989 Oktoberfest in Munich.
