SooperDooperLooper

The SooperDooperLooper is a ride at Hersheypark, and the first looping coaster on the East Coast. It was designed as a terrain coaster by Werner Stengel, and built by Anton Schwarzkopf.

Elements
  • Vertical loop
  • 165-foot (50 m) tunnel
  • Double-up


Rider Experience
The train first goes up a hill, makes a small left turn, and then descends and enters a loop. It then makes a sweeping left turn that travels through the middle of the loop and enters a tunnel. The ride concludes with a series of bunny hills and helixes. The trains on the SooperDooperLooper use a single lap bar to hold riders in the seat. This design works because the forces from the loop (and helix) press riders in their seats, and are a common feature with looping coasters. The tunnel that occurs part-way through the ride used to house a mechanical spider prop that would drop down towards the train. The ride opened with three trains. It now currently runs with two.

Additional Information

The ride is often considered a "walk-on" by enthusiasts due to lines normally not exceeding 2-3 minutes. In October, when Hersheypark is decorated in a Halloween theme (Hersheypark in the Dark), the SooperDooperLooper is dubbed the SooperBOOperLooper.
