Stinger is a Vekoma Inverted Shuttle Coaster located at Dorney Park in Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA. It replaced another roller coaster, Laser. It was previously located at California's Great America, where it was known as Invertigo.


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. It is one of only four Invertigos built by Vekoma.


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]
