Storm is a Pinfari sit-down roller coaster currently believed to be travelling.

HistoryEdit

The ride was first located at Dreamland in Margate, Kent, England, UK, where it opened during the late-nineties. It was named Looping Star and was brought in as a temporary replacement for another Looping Star, which had been relocated to Loudoun Castle in Scotland. It had white supports, black track and blue trains. The ride only lasted a few seasons before being moved. Another Looping Star took its place in 2001.

The ride was relocated to Camelot Theme Park in Chorley, Lancashire where it opened from 2001 to 2006 as the Gauntlet. After leaving Camelot, it received new trains (the same type as those on the former Looping Star at Sauble Beach Fun World) and a new paint scheme: red track and blue trains and supports.

The ride opened as Storm at New Pleasureland Southport on the former spot of Traumatizer. It operated from Easter 2008 to October 2008. It is believed to now be travelling.
