Double Loop!

Gladiators... At your ready!

 

You may find that sentence makes no sense, but Twin Looper (the parks second biggest coaster) went through an array of names, including: Iron Wolf (1995) and Gladiators (1996).

 

When the Park was sold by Granada, those names were copyrighted, after the TV show Gladiators, and had to be changed. The names that followed were: Sky Looper (1997 and 1998), Twin Looper (1999 to 2002) and JCB Twin Looper (2003 and 2004). In 2005 the Sponsorship from JCB ran out and the ride name was reverted back to Twin Looper for the 2005 and 2006 seasons.

Originally located at Lightwater Valley as Soopa Loopa, the Rollercoaster was sold to American Adventure in 1994 and began operation at the park in 1995. Twin looper soon became a huge hit with visitors and was a great addition to support the ride line up with wipeout.

 

The Coaster (as the name suggests) has two loops, and nothing really more... apart from a series of Helix's. Overall it was a great addition to the park and saw its time out to the very end.

 

It was sold to a Polish Theme park (Śląskie Wesołe Miasteczko) in 2007 and was Named "Tic Tack Tornado" after the mint sweets, however the sponsorship was dropped in 2010 and it now operates as just "Tornado".
