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, wich 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, meening a charge on admission to the viewing area was used. Many more watched the ride than actually riding it. The ride limped along until World War One, until fading into bankruptcy.[1]
