I've been on this one several times over the years. It's a classic Schwartzkopf looper that can't really compare to the modern coasters. However, it's worth riding to experience the high forces while going through the old circular loops. The first drop is decent and the loop is cool, but there is really nothing that exciting about this coaster. As far as classic Schwartzkopf coasters go, Mindbender absolutely blows this one away. Still, there is almost never a line for this one and it's a great way to introduce somebody to looping coasters. Also, classic coasters like this are what led to the great technological masterpieces we have today.

Date Ridden: Summer of 2008. Times Ridden: 1 The more I go back and look at the coasters in the land of chocolate, the more impressed I become with what Hersheypark has to offer. With two outstanding woodies, a launch coaster, a unique Intamin 90 degree launched coaster, a B and M invert and couple of nice older rides, this is a destination park for any enthusiast. The Sooperdooperlooper fits into the latter category but is fun nonetheless. At my home park, Six Flags Over Georgia, we have the highly rated Mindbender which is extremely similar to this specific ride. Both are very smooth, both feature inversions without over-the-shoulder restraints, and both offer a fairly lengthy ride. Like Mindbender, SDL uses the terrain in which it is built wisely with many trees and a couple of ponds adding to the experience. Nothing disgusts more than a great ride which is simply sitting in the middle of a parking lot without any terrain whatsoever. SDL features a very lengthy train so based on my one ride and my experiences on Mindbender, the back of the train offers a bit of airtime and a little more intensity. Despite its age, the ride is fun and very smooth without a any hint of roughness. Also, since this is one of Hershey&#39.s older coasters, the line is normally very short with only station waits or near walk-ons. On the day we were there, the trains were running half-empty due to the lack of people in line. Is the SDL the best ride in the park? Definitely not but it is a can&#39.t miss while visiting Hershey. It interacts well with other coasters and offers an experience unique to the casual coaster rider. It gets a solid grade from me.Overall Rating - 8

a solid looping coaster. the drop and loop were very forceful, but the rest of the ride just meandered through the woods which felt more like a train ride than a rollercoaster.

Pretty good looping coaster, though it wasnt as great as I had hoped. Hershey has a two train operation on this and I love the lap bar only trains. The first drop had decent zip to it, but there was no air at all during it. As always, the vertical loop was very intense and had strong Gs and following that came a dark tunnel and a few drops, but they were really slow and tame. However, the helix finale was very intense and it had some of the strongest Gs Ive ever experienced in a helix.

I always have a good time on Schwarzkopf rides. Theyre quick and to the point with an added bonus of inversions with a lap bar. Theyre a dying breed and thats ashame. This is right up there with similar rides like Mindbender.

A really bizaare, but fun coaster. Its called Sooperdooperlooper, but only goes upside-down once that I know of. Must be older, cuz there was no harness (a good thing). After the loop, it was a bit anti-climactic, but still a good old-school steel looper.

I was really excited to ride my first full-circuit Schwarzkopf, and it didnt disappoint! To start with, the lift began almost immediately when the train left the station, which I like, because it is a no-nonsense type deal and improves waiting time. I mentioned that because a few of the other coasters at Hershey did that and I really dont like all the BS meandering that some coasters do before the ride "begins." Okay, now to the fun stuff: Schwarzkopf loops are officially awesomeness in a jar! Man, there is no other loop I have been on that compares to Schwarzkopf-engineered ones! The upper body freedom is great, due to no shoulder harness, the positive Gs are simply amazing from base to top, and its so darn smooth and enjoyable. The rest of the ride is pretty meh to be truthful. It slows down a lot in the middle, then speeds up after a drop right AFTER a trim break. I could only imagine the speed of that drop without the trim. After that drop, the track goes low to the ground with a lot of speed and very good smoothness. The ride is very fun, but simply has a sleep-educing middle! I cant wait to ride some of Shwarzkopfs other rides like Laser, Shockwave, and Mindbender so I can finally find an untrimmed, classic, double looping masterpiece! Sooperdooperlooper, however is a very well landscaped and extremely reridable classic coaster.

Classic, fun and smooth, which is always nice in a looping coaster. This makes it stay very popular ever since it opened in the 70s.
