The vertical loop uses a triangular lattice of steel tubes. The only other roller coasters that use this support type are Revolution at Six Flags Magic Mountain, Cliff Hanger at Ghost Town in the Sky and SooperDooperLooper at Hersheypark.
The trains on Golden Loop are painted the colours of the South African flag. The track was originally painted blue, but is now yellow.
Golden Loop launches out of the station straight into a vertical loop and up a 70 degree spike. The train falls back down backwards through the loop, past the station, and up a second spike. Finally, the ride falls back down and is stopped in the station.
