The Exhilirating Ride on the Octopus

The Polyp by Gerstlauer promises turbulent fun for its passengers. Three controlled rotation axes as well as freely rotating gondolas provide rapid acceleration changes from multiple G-acceleration to moments of near weightlessness during the unpredictable ride.

But the Polyp not only provides family-friendly fun for its passengers, the simultaneous movements also have a fascinating effect on spectators and make the ride a real eye-catcher. The individual theming and optional lighting package make the Polyp an entertaining attraction for young and old alike.

Theming Options

In order to perfectly integrate the Polyp into your themed area, we manufacture the fast-paced ride adventure according to your ideas and individual design concepts.

In addition to the gondolas, which can be themed as cars, ships or animals, for example, the constantly rotating and tilting sculpture on the central structure offers an almost hypnotic performance for the spectators.

Optional on-board sound and light provide a particularly immersive ride experience and extraordinary effects, even in the evening hours.
