The Looping, sometimes also called a Vertical Loop, is without a doubt one of the most iconic and classic Elements a Roller Coaster can have. It typically has a elliptical shape to it, resembling a inverted Teardrop. This non-circular design helps with reducing the G-Forces experienced by the Human Body. The first Roller Coaster to feature a Looping following this design principle was The Great American Revolution at Magic Mountain, though compared to other Looping design it is still more round in shape. This is somewhat of a Trademark for a lot Roller Coasters build by the same company as Revolution, namely Schwarzkopf.
