Details

Facts:Only three Silberpfeil models were made. Currently they exist at Busch Gardens Tampa (Tampa Bay, Florida USA), Loudoun Castle (Galston, Scotland) and one travels Africa with Magic World Amusement Park under the name "Looping Star".

Which of these three Silberpfeil roller coasters this one is hasn't been determined. The Busch Gardens Tampa one is a park model and has been at Busch Gardens Tampa since 1980, making this an unlikely choice. The African Silberpfeil first traveled the German fair circuit with showman Robrahn. This could be the OK Corral Silberpfeil or perhaps the Loudoun Castle unit made it's first stop at OK Corral.

This Silberpfeil was replaced by another Schwarzkopf roller coaster described as "Looping". Perhaps this was a Looping Star model. It wasn't the parks' Lasso Loop (Schwarzkopf Katapult model) which was described separately in the same text.
Etymology:"Silberpfeil" may not be the name this roller coaster operated as. "Silberpfeil" is the model name in German which in English is "Silver Arrow".
