- This article is about the track layout. For individual roller coasters called "Wacky Worm", see Wacky Worm (disambiguation).
Wacky Worm, also known as Big Apple, is a roller coaster model produced by many different manufacturers.
The first model to use this layout was Pinfari's Big Apple MB28, production of which began in the late 1970s. Most Wacky Worm coasters produced by other companies have the same dimensions as the Big Apple MB28.
Layout[edit | edit source]
The Wacky Worm is the smallest "stacked figure eight" roller coaster, with the Tropical Track being slightly larger and the Zyklon being the largest. It has a figure-eight layout and a single drop, which in most cases has a trim brake.
