Shuttle Loop was a steel launched shuttle roller coaster located at Toshimaen in Mukouyama, Nerima, Tokyo, Japan. The ride was built by Schwarzkopf and opened in 1980.


The ride would be put in storage after its removal in 2008, and was eventually bought by Dutch bushiness-man Henny van der Most. The ride was intended for the then new Attractiepark Rotterdam. The park eventually opened after numerous delays, with the coaster missing from the park. The plan of it operating in the park had been canceled, and it would be listed for sale, sitting in storage until a potential buyer would show up. It is unknown if this buyer eventually showed up.



The ride had a single vertical loop which riders passed through once forwards and once backwards. The vertical loop was covered with a soundbarrier on the right side to prevent screams from reaching the nearby residential area.
