Before arriving at Dorney Park, the roller coaster was located at Santa's Village in Dundee, Illinois. It was called the Cannonball Coaster and later the Snowball Coaster. It closed in 1985.

The ride reopened in 1985 at Dorney Park and was pitched as a family alternative to the Laser. It was called Colossus Junior then the Little Laser, which had the same color scheme as the Laser and a pretend vertical loop.

When Laser closed in 2008, the ride became nameless for a brief period of time before becoming the Steel First, a family version of Steel Force. The ride closed in 2010.


The ride had a simple oval layout with bunny hills.


Single train with 3 cars. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows, for a total of 12 riders per train.
