Six Flags Over Texas

This is another masterpiece from coaster designer Anton Schwarzkopf. The coaster begins with a 40-foot drop into two consecutive vertical loops followed by a double out and back layout of multiple drops that offer plenty of airtime. It's no surprise that Shockwave is loved by coaster enthusiasts.
