Loop Roller Coaster is a steel roller coaster located at CJ Barrymore's Family Entertainment Center in Clinton, Michigan, USA. Built by Pinfari, it originally opened in 1996 at Playland's Castaway Cove and was the only inverting roller coaster at the park. It was removed in 2015 along with the Flitzer to make way for GaleForce, a launched roller coaster from S&S Worldwide. The roller coaster was then purchased by CJ Barrymore's, where it reopened on May 9, 2016.[1] As of February 2024, the ride is currently listed for sale.[2]
