History:Lightwater Valley sold this roller coaster back to the manufacturer, Soquet, who then sold it to Granada Theme Parks who placed it at American Adventure as the "Iron Wolf". In 1998 the ride was renamed "Twin Looper" due to the Gladiators being copyrighted to Granada, who had by this point sold the park to John Broome's (mastermind of Alton Towers) Ventureworld Ltd. In 2003, the ride was renamed and repainted again, this time to "JCB Twin Looper", to tie in with the nearby JCB World attraction. The JCB sponsorship ended in 2005 and the JCB was removed from the ride's name and the surrounding JCB World has become "Digger Depot".
Theme:Iron Wolf was opened by 'The Wolf' gladiator.
