Afterburner was a steel launched shuttle roller coaster located at Fun Spot Indiana in Angola, Indiana, USA.

History[edit]

The ride was first built at Circus World (later called Boardwalk and Baseball) in Florida, USA. It operated under three different names: Double-O, Flying Daredevil and Zoomerang. It was the only Arrow Dyanmics Launched Loop to feature a lift which transported riders to and from the station. It was discontinued after a couple of seasons. The roller coaster closed with the park on January 17, 1990.

In 1991, the ride reopened as Afterburner at Fun Spot in Indiana, USA. It closed with the park after the 2008 season and remained standing but not operating until it was demolished in February 2017.
