Kind of a boring ride. I think this is a little rough of a coaster. Plus, it is very short.

what a great double loop this coaster has! i loose my vision nearly every time i ride. it is also very exciting being on a looping coaster with only a lap bar. the ride is packed with some very high positive gs, both on the loops and on the following 2 helices. there have been rumors for a couple years now of this ride being removed for a new coaster. that would be a huge mistake. i can only hope that if they do, they sell it to either SFNE or Funtown, USA so that i may continue to enjoy this great coaster every year.

What a rush!!! This ride is awesome! I closed my eyes when i went through the first loop, but when i opened them, i was in the second on!!! I love the spirals and smoothness of the ride. However, the ride itself is a bit short and the lift is way, way, WAY, to long!!!

A Schwarzkopf portable double looper that found a home at Dorney in 1986. Formerly known as Colossus, it has a lot of track (almost 2300 feet) in an area scantly 75 yards by 35. What I like about this coaster are the headchopper effects, the lapbars (thats right no horse collars or seatbelts), the water filled "footers", the exit bridge over the brake run and the positve Gs. There is no air on this ride; its fast and furious and full of laterals.

On the down side, it takes a bit of steam to get the train started up the lift hill. When there is a wait in line this can add to the tedium. The queueing is serial meaning location in line determines seat location. To get the back seat which I think is better than the front, you have to be in the last pair of the group let through the turnstile. Given the length of the train the front seat does not deliver much of a drop. At a scant 89 feet the first car seems to creep a little too far down the drop as the back of the train clears the lift.

The layout is simply two helices sandwiching a double loop. The drop twist back along the lift hill into 2 quick loops. The counter clockwise helix then passes the train through the second loop and then between them before taking up a clockwise helix under the drop that abruptly brings the train to the brake run. It all goes fairly quickly. if your napping on the lift hill this will wake you up.

Not a criticism but a heads-up this ride is a little rough, it rides like wooden coaster so for little kids the height requirement is well advised.

Laser is an enjoyable ride but the ride was much shorter than I expected. Its like The Demon in PGA only less scenery and less thrills.

it is pretty much a classic but a sucky classic if u ask me. i think people just like it because it was built by anton.

This is a short but enjoyable ride. It was fast throughout and pulled some nice G-forces. Laser definitely looks nice with the new neon paint scheme. Schwartzkopf loops are quite intense due to the fact that they are round instead of teardrop-shaped like most loops. The Laser is smooth like most of Antons rides. Overall, it is a short but fun coaster.

I very much enjoyed this coaster. From the top of the lift hill to the end brake run is very short, but intense. The only major problem I had with this coaster was how slow the lift hill went. I think that between when we started up the lift and us at the top of the lift, Little Laser did about 3 laps. j/k.

This is a nice little Schwarzkopf (may he rest in peace) double looper. The lift hill is notoriously slow, but after that it is all speed. The double loops are really intense as are the helices that follow. There are some very good head chopping effects when you are in the helices as well. Dont let the looks deceive you, this is not a timid coaster…

The loops were good. But the thing was way to short.
