Sidewinder is a shuttle loop coaster designed by Arrow Dynamics that features a straight section of track with a single vertical loop between five-story platforms at opposite ends. A catapult launch mechanism propels the train off each platform. During the one-minute ride you'll pass through Sidewinder's vertical loop while traveling both forwards and backwards.
