Wow, roller coaster really have come a long way. The loop and the corkscrew were all the rage back then. Now we got Immelman's, Cobra Rolls/Boomerangs, heartline twists- pretty much any inversion one can name there at at least 10 to 20 or more coasters out there that have it.
Nice pictures and article btw.
The loop was built in Germany for testing. The loop was then moved to Magic Mountain and the rest of the ride was built.
Building rides at the factory is something that still goes on. The most recent examples that pop into my head is Hypersonic which ran for several years at the S&S factory, and a small portion of the 4D coaster at the Arrow factory. In a slightly unrelated question, does anybody know if that segment of the 4D coaster at the Arrow plant ended up being part of X, or is it still there?
