Anton Schwarzkopf was introduced into the industry with his father’s involvement with the design of specialized trailers used to transport circus equipment. The company eventually transitioned into creating amusement rides. In 1960, Schwarzkopf took over his father’s company leading to the creation of his first actual roller coaster, The Wildcat, in 1964. Schwarzkopf also designed the first launched roller coaster in the world by means of weight-drop technology, the Shuttle Loop. The first installation was King Kobra at Kings Dominion in Virginia. This coaster was later moved to Alton Towers, where it became well known as Thunder Looper. After its third move, it now resides at Hopi Hari in Brazil as Katapul.
