How many operating Schwarzkopf shuttle loop coasters our left in the U.S? I know they are getting hard to find so I want to know how many are left. When the last Schwarzkopf shuttle loop coaster goes down it will be a sad day in coaster history.

I Hate Coaster Fans That Complain About Everything
Schwarzkopf shuttle loops are absolutely wonderful rides. Greezed Lightning at SFKK is Six Flags Great America's former Tidal Wave. That was the ride that got me interested in coasters, way back in 1982! I have also been on Montezoomas Revenge at Knotts Berry Farm, and it was a hoot too. Back in 1996, I visited Paramount's Great America, and at that time they still had their Tidal Wave (ours was removed in 1991 to make way for Batman in 1992. Great rides, they are, and there should be more.
I love Schwarzkopf Coaster's in general. I was really sad when PGA took theirs out. (they took it out to replace it with nothing ) But it's even sadder it's just rusting up in SFMW lot. Irks me to no end. I rode that coaster alot. First ride was in 77 I waited nearly 2hrs to ride. The last time I rode it you could walk on and reride almost all you wanted. Kind of sad too. Rode Knott's again this year, still a fun ride. I'm pretty sure these were the first shuttle coaster designs made too.

Bits and pieces of it are sitting up there still rusting away, but GL/TW has been picked over pretty heavy as spare parts for Kentucky Kingdom's Shuttle. So PGA's ride lives on, just in pieces on the other side of the country, (not to mention a few other funny places.)
