Loop-the-Loop was a sit-down roller coaster located at West 10th Street, Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York, USA.

HistoryEdit

  • When it opened, the ride showcased greatly improved engineering over the Flip Flap Railway. The track was made out of steel, the loop was larger and, most importantly, it was an ellipse shape, which pulled relatively few g's and was therefore a lot safer.

Elements

Vertical Loop

  • Sadly, the public were more inclined to watch the ride than ride it, meaning a charge on admission to the viewing area was used. Many more watched the ride than actually rode it. The ride limped along until World War One, until fading into bankruptcy.[1]
