Greezed Lightnin is one great coaster. These Schwarzkopf shuttle loop coasters were so far ahead of the time of the modern launched coasters, yet, in my opinion, they are equally as thrilling. How do you not love instantaneous speed leading to that perfect vertical loop? Backwards is almost as good, but the true icing on the cake comes from the forward drop down the back tower (sit in the back of the train for the best drop). And, like most Schwarzkopfs, its only a lap bar holding you in. Perfect!

Love this ride!! The operators are the friendliest in the park. Great launch. I love to hold my hands up in the loop, especially while going backwards, you feel like youre gonna fall out. The back spike is awesome, especially in the last car, cause its a long, steep drop and you get good air.

A classic shuttle. They dont make em like they used to. I think I liked this one better than SFOGs old Viper model because the train doesnt trim on the bacwards trip. THE BACK SEAT RULZ!!!!

Seven for the ride and one for historical significance of offering sling shot start and a loop, as well as backwards through the loop. Reminds me of the Laser Loop which preceded the STeel Phantom at Kennywood.

Fun! Fun! 2 Short? This Coaster from looking at it you would Think that the one loop and straight Track would not be fun. Let me tell you Shooting out of the Station at 60 Mph in 3 secs and Hitting a Loop with just a lap bar holding you in your seat is Heart Pounding Fun. this coaster gets a 6 from me, but would be more if it was a little longer

Great ride that WOULD get a 10 if it werent so short (about 35 seconds). Back seat is best for some reason. Everyone on the ride puts their arms up usually, and youre shot off very quickly - 0 to 60 in about 5 seconds (0 to 30 in the first 2 seconds alone). The whole track is mostly in-line. After about 200 feet of straight track, you hit a high loop at 60mph, trying to keep your arms up. After that, you soon reach the end of the track - a 70 degree incline that reaches 140 feet into the air. After you apex, you go down backwards, through the loop, past the launch area, and into a rear incline that matches the one at the opposite end (this is the best part). Then you go forward again and abruptly stop at the launch area. It may be short, but the excitement-to-duration ration is higher than almost any other coaster at the park, and youll defintely step off with a smile on your face.
