Lasso Loop was a steel launched roller coaster previously located at OK Corral in Cuges-les-Pins, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, France.


The ride originally operated at German fairs, travelling with Goetzke. Its exact closing date on the fairs isn't known, but it eventually reappeared in the USA, opening at Nickel's Midway Pier in 1985. Its closing date at Nickel's isn't known either, but it wasn't in operation for long, since it would resurface at Parque de Atracciones de Madrid in 1990, a mere five years later. It only operated in Madrid for three years however, being sold to its current final operational park; OK Corral in France.

Corral eventually sold the coaster to Dutch Showman Leon Snep after operating for eleven years. Snep planned on renaming the coaster to "2 Fast 2 Furious" and tour over the Dutch fair circuit with the ride. This hasn't happened however, and the future of the ride isn't known.



Colour scheme

Yellow track and white supports. The ride opened with blue track and white supports on the german fair. It retained this colour scheme in the USA, but recieved a new scheme in Spain. Its track would be repainted to a lighter blue, with the supports gaining multicoloured stripes. It would eventually recieve its final scheme in OK Corral.


Single train with 5 cars. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows, for a total of 20 riders per train. The train has been modified when the ride operated at OK Corral, every other car was removed, leaving a 5 car train on a 9 car train body.
