This was one of two interlocking Arrow shuttle loop coasters built in 1978 at Six Flags Great Adventure. In 1993 it was relocated to Frontier City where it has operated every since. Diamondback is a shuttle coaster, so riders get to experience the same section of track with one vertical loop going both forwards and backwards.
