We make the world go round.

Founded in 1982, the family-owned company Gerstlauer Amusement Rides GmbH stands for everything that rotates and moves in amusement parks and fairs worldwide.

We, Gerstlauer Amusement Rides GmbH, are a manufacturer of stationary and transportable amusement rides. Beyond Germany's borders, the name Gerstlauer is the name to know when roller coasters and amusement rides turn and move in amusement and theme parks, at fun fairs or public festivals.

We supply innovative and safe products, as well as individual, customized services in the field of amusement facilities. The world's smallest and largest amusement parks benefit from the high quality standards, flat hierarchies and full range of services offered by our owner-managed family business.

We have long-standing and trustful relationships with our customers and convince with maintenance-friendly and safe rides, which are fun for our customers and their guests. We are proud that many of our customers therefore choose us again and again as a partner for their new attractions and successfully operate several of our installations.

As a leading manufacturer of amusement rides, we are members of the following associations:

We are proud of our employees, some of whom have been part of our team for many years. With their commitment and motivation, they not only create products that bring joy to people around the world, but they are also always aware of the responsibility to create ride fun with safety.


Passenger safety is our top priority. During development, we place the highest value on ensuring that all systems and components are designed to be fault-tolerant and/or redundant, while comprehensive risk analyses help to thoroughly evaluate all aspects of the ride. During production, regular material inspections and quality controls take place, and before your new attraction is available to the public, the equipment is once again thoroughly inspected and tested on site.

Of course, we manufacture our products in accordance with the highest international standards, such as:

  • European standard EN 13814
  • US-American standard ASTM F2291
  • Australian standard AS 3533
  • Russian standard GOST R 53488
  • Chinese standard GB 8408
  • and others.

We gladly cooperate with independent verification organizations to have our products certified by a third party as well. Our rides are successfully in operation with testing and acceptance by the following companies:

  • TÜV Süd
  • TÜV Nord
  • TÜV Rheinland
  • TÜV Thüringen
  • TÜV Nederland
  • R.J. Associates Ltd.
  • NJ Amusement Ride Safety
  • CSEI
  • and others.


Gerstlauer Amusement Rides is known worldwide for manufacturing roller coasters and amusement rides to the highest quality standards. As a certified welding company for EXC4 components according to EN 1090-2 by GSI SLV Munich, we manufacture excellent amusement rides at our location in Münsterhausen, Bavaria. Quality "Made in Germany" is as important a part of our company philosophy as the appreciation of our customers and suppliers. We see ourselves as a partner of both sides and have appreciated the reliability of our regional and globally recognized suppliers for many years.

We have developed extensive expertise in the manufacture of tracks that follow three-dimensional curves. As a result of constant product monitoring and further development, we are now able to further increase our high manufacturing quality thanks to the latest, laser measurement-supported track production. This enables us to offer our customers individually designed roller coasters at the highest technical quality level.

Our qualified team, consisting of engineers, metalworkers, electricians, painters and numerous other experts, delivers results of the highest class. In cooperation with our customers, solutions are developed, products engineered, designed and commissioned, always keeping safety, cost-effectiveness and sustainability in mind. This is how a customer request becomes a real customer benefit.

At our production site, all assemblies are largely pre-assembled and extensive tests are carried out. The control system and programming are also extensively tested at our factory before delivery. This eliminates a large part of the necessary configuration and adjustments on site and the time for installation and commissioning can be used efficiently.

Reliability & Service

Safe and reliable operation of our rides is important to us, which is why our rides are designed to be particularly low and easy to maintain. We know that with an attraction from Gerstlauer, our customers are making a long-term investment in the successful future of their park and we are proud that all of our more than 100 roller coasters worldwide are running since their first hour of operation.

Our customer-focused service already starts with the development of the individually designed rides. A competent and dedicated team supports our customers in the planning and in all matters concerning their new ride. As a full-service supplier, we also offer an experienced team for on-site assembly, which provides professional installation support or carries out the whole assembly of the new attraction.

In thorough training workshops and background seminars on and with the ride, as well as by means of online training sessions, our customers' operations and maintenance personnel learn how to handle their new installation safely. Our competent after sales team is available for further support and spare parts inquiries. If required, we also offer services for the maintenance of the rides.

For reliable and long-term operation, we guarantee our service and the availability of spare parts for the entire life cycle of our rides.
