Scorpion is one of the few roller coaster remnants of famous designer Schwarzkopf. The manufacturer is famed for its circular loops (compared to the clothoid, tear-shaped loops used by his followers) which produce extreme forces at the top of the loop instead of the sides. Beyond the loop, though, it's a fairly standard, smooth family coaster and a great introduction to inversions.
