Notes:Luneur's website claims this ride is "Directly from the USA".  This roller coaster didn't really come from the USA.  It was previously themed as "Great American" and this could be the source of the confusion.
Owner / Operator:The Looping Star was leased to Luneur by Bembon Rides and in 2007 was purchased by William Bird (Sales) Ltd. of Ireland who intends on touring Ireland with it.  The first stop was Funderland Dublin from December 26th, 2007 to January 13th, 2008 where it operated under the name "Shockwave".
