The Reader's Choice Spotlight:
Lightnin' Loops
When Six Flags purchased Great Adventure, the first major new attraction added was a state of the art roller coaster, more thrilling than anything the park had seen before.  Arrow Launch Loop coasters were something many parks were installing in the 1970's, but Great Adventure took the concept to the next level building two interlocking loops.

With the end of the 1980's, Lightnin' Loops was no longer the popular ride it once was, and was removed to make way for the next generation of state of the art roller coasters.
