    Inversions Location Fun Rattle Dead spots

    This was my second ever rollercoaster and my first-ever roller coaster with an inversion, and lastly my one of my favorite Arrow Dynamics Looper. While this is far from the most exciting ride in the park, it is still very fun with a semi intense helix and the two intertwining loops. Though this ride is not perfect and its age shows. This ride has a noticeable rattle, while not painfully overbearing it is still there, and the classic rough arrow transitions are there also and may cause a soft headbang. Despite this, it is very re-rideable and I ride this around three or four times every trip to the park, and during my seasonal shifts, I give it a good ride every day. The other problem with this ride is that there are two lift hills, while the second one feels faster, it is still there and it hurts the pacing of the ride. I still find this a fun ride, though its age shows, it is a very essential credit when going to Busch Gardens Williamsburg and I suggest giving it a ride, as it is still a great arrow looper despite its age.

    Airtimes Location Duration Headbanging Dead spots

    Lochness is a very scenic ride that takes place over the Rhine river. It is smoother than most arrow loopers and has a very unique layout consisting of two vertical loops, A tunnel, a second lift, and various turn around. Besides the obvious interlocking appearance, the loops are't special and the turn arounds are boring. The Tunnel and second lift are a huge dead spot. The ride does give ejector airtime in the back row on the first drop.

    Really fun Arrow. No headbanging anywhere. Almost lost my hat because I accidentally wore it on this ride.

    Location Fun Layout Headbanging

    A true Arrow classic! The ride gets things off into a lift hill that takes a very long time. The coaster then does a straight down drop to the Rhine River before flying through a turn into the first vertical loop. The two loops on this coaster are very forceful, the hill before the mid-course brake run has a great pop of airtime and the majority of the ride is actually pretty smooth... until the tunnel. The tunnel holds what I call "The Helix Of Death", many people say it on other coasters... this is helix is what I define as a that term. This helix is nothing but pure headbanging torture. I'd say keep your head very still in order to not get beat up. The coaster itself is beautiful and enjoyable, probably my favorite Arrow (I haven't been on Magnum XL-200 or Tennessee Tornado by the time of this review).

    Magnum notwithstanding, Loch Ness Monster is one of my favorite Arrow coasters. It's scenic, smooth, and cinematic. Great swooping drops over the water, two excellent loops, and a long tunnel helix with special effects makes for a wholly enjoyable classic ride.

    Loch Ness Monster is an amazing Arrow. The loops are fantastic. The ride is beautiful. The helix is fun. However, there are a few moments where the ride shows its age. There's some rough transitions, particularly after the first hill and after the helix. The trains are uncomfortable for taller riders. However, the ride is extremely fun in spite of its flaws.

    Nice surprise! Rattle

    僕は嫌いじゃないし、当時のコースターならではの尖り方があっていいと思います。

    This was an awesome unique Arrow. My third favorite Arrow overall only behind Magnum and Tennessee Tornado. The two loop are great and look awesome over the river and the theming with the lights and audio in the tunnel is a fun touch. Awesome classic coaster.

    Inversions Intensity Discomfort

    The transitions on this Arrow looper weren't as bad as some others, but it was still uncomfortable. The helix was laughable; I could feel every track piece transition into the next, as if they couldn't even track a continuous curve properly. The interlocking loops, while picturesque, felt like crashing into a truck, and the OTSR did not agree with my shoulders.

    Location Fun Headbanging

    Loch Ness Monster was the first coaster I rode at Busch Gardens Williamsburg. It’s the best Arrow looper I have ever ridden, beating Tennessee Tornado by a slim margin due to its surprisingly intense interlocking loops and the awesome helix-that-goes-on-forever in a faux cavern. However, the worst moment of the ride is the ascent just after the second loop; I hit my head pretty hard on the restraint, so thank goodness the ride hit the brake run right then and there. The hill and turn that wraps around the Land of the Dragons kids area is not super enjoyable either. All in all, the scenic setting along the Rhine river combined with aforementioned reasons above make Lochy a pretty fun classic coaster.

    Location Masterpiece Layout Dead spots

    Loch Ness Monster is one of the most beautiful roller coasters in the world. From its design to its placement—it just doesn't get better than this. That's not to say the coaster isn't great though. LNM remains one of the smoothest Arrow loopers I've ever ridden (in a similar league as Tennessee Tornado in my honest opinion). Loch Ness Monster is a timeless, classic, great steel coaster which holds its own amongst a park full of modern coasters she helped to inspire.
