History: Ride was built in 1985 and previously was in a traveling carnival operated by Amusements of America. Moved 100 feet from its previous position next to the Kentucky Rumbler for the 2006 season. A new train was purchased and the ride was briefly renamed - and I do mean "briefly" - Brief Encounter before the park settling on its present name almost as if it were a joke.
Don't fret! Photos for Looping Star are forthcoming!
