Once the tallest roller coaster in the world, Shock Wave was also among the first to feature back-to-back vertical loops. Manufactured by Anton Schwarzkopf, it underwent a major refurbishment in 2008.

For 2016, riders on Shock Wave will optionally be able to wear a virtual reality headset which will take them on a high-speed journey in a fighter jet that is taking on an alien invasion, synchronized with the movements of the coaster itself.
