Stinger (previously known as Invertigo) is a Vekoma Inverted Shuttle Coaster located at Dorney Park. It replaced the Laser. It was previously located at California's Great America and known as Invertigo.

General Info[edit]

Stinger is an inverted shuttle coaster featuring special back-to-back seats. The train car is pulled up a tower in reverse and released through a cobra roll element and a vertical loop. The train then ascends another tower and drops to run the course in reverse. The ride is painted royal blue and features a scorpion theming.


On August 10, 2009 at California's Great America, the ride stopped on the lift hill, stranding a full train of riders for over three hours. Riderd had to be evacuated by fire crews. No injuries were reported.[1]

On June 6, 2012, the train stalled again on the lift hill. Riders were stranded for 90 minutes before being lowered into the station.[2]
