Kennywood's Laser Loop Reincarnated as Chapultepec Park's Cascabel

Pittsburgh's Kennywood Park is the one of the great family amusement parks in the U.S. Kennywood's first looping roller coaster, the Laser Loop, operated from 1980-1990, when it was removed to make room for the Steel Phantom.

Thanks to the That's Church blog, I found out that the ride was moved to Chapultepec Park in Mexico city, where it has been operating as the Cascabel since 1994.

I actually rode the Laser Loop shortly after it opened in 1980.  My date, who was far more of a roller coaster enthusiast than I, coerced me into riding it multiple times, including once in the front seat.
