In 'Rollercoaster loop shapes', (Pendrill 2005 Phys. Educ. 40 517) the author started from the observation that although textbook loops are often circular, real rollercoaster loops are not. In this paper the mathematical description of various possible loop shapes, as well as their riding properties was discussed and also how a study of loop shapes can be used in physics education.
