In 1978, Busch Gardens unveiled the Loch Ness Monster, the biggest, baddest, steel looping coaster to date. Still one of Arrow's best known coasters, the Monster was the first coaster to feature two vertical, interlocking loops. Located in the Heatherdowns, Scotland section of the park, the coaster sits in a low valley over a large body of water. A walkway across the water gives park visitors some spectacular close-up views of the coaster.

In addition to the two loops, the ride's finale features a fast, enclosed helix with flashing lights and mist. While shadowed in thrill factor by newer, more modern coasters, the Loch Ness Monster still holds some fun and history for new riders and coaster enthusiasts.
