Looping Coaster was a steel roller coaster located at Funtown Pier located in Seaside Park, New Jersey, USA. It opened on August 23, 1989.[1] The attraction was destroyed on October 29, 2012, when Hurricane Sandy washed away the pier.[2]



The ride follows a standard layout, similar to early looping Pinfari Zyklon models. When the ride first opened, the track was golden-brown and the supports were silver. Sometime in 2007, the track was repainted red.


2 trains with 2 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows, for a total of 8 riders per train.
