Big Apple MB28 was a mass-produced model manufactured by Pinfari. It was the first roller coaster to use the now ubiquitous Wacky Worm layout. The model is now offered by Interpark and D.P.V. Rides, albeit with modifications to the original design.

Mushroom shaped ticket booths and giant solid apples are common features on this model.
