History[edit | edit source]

Design[edit | edit source]
Ride experience[edit | edit source]
After turning right out of the station, the train climbs the chain lift hill. Riders are then dropped into back-to-back vertical loops, and a banked right-turn around. Then a double corkscrew follows, leading into the mid-course brake run. Then, a helix to the right follows, eventually leading back to the station.
Trains[edit | edit source]
Big Loop originally used trains built by Arrow Dynamics. For the 2010 season, these were replaced with Vekoma rolling stock from the defunct Corkscrew at Alton Towers in Alton, Staffordshire, England, United Kingdom.
Confusion[edit | edit source]
Big Loop is often mistaken to be much bigger than it really is; this is because a larger Vekoma SLC with the same colour scheme stands behind it.
