The Big Family Fun

Great fun makes children's hearts beat higher! The Bob Coaster by Gerstlauer Amusement Rides offers just that, as it is adjusted to specific demands of the young guests. Child-friendly accelerations turn the ride into an adventure for little thrill-seekers!

Best of all, the trains have room not only for the young ones, but also for the whole family. The passengers do not sit next to each other as usual – they can enjoy the real racing bobsleigh feeling sitting behind each other, with the smallest ones safely in their parents' laps. This allows parents to accompany their children on their first big roller coaster ride and experience this unique moment together.

More Information


Instead of the traditional side-by-side seating arrangement, up to 3 passengers (two adults and one child or one adult and two children) take their seats behind each other in one of the maximum 5 vehicles. The front bench seat with its own backrest is shaped in such a way that a child can sit together with an adult and thus start the ride adventure well protected.

Thanks to moderate accelerations, all passengers are secured by individual lap belts that include automatic pretensioners and electronically lockable buckles. A visual indicator signals the locking status to the operator.

If desired, the train can be equipped with a reverse vehicle to offer additional variety and an extra portion of family-friendly excitement.


Excitement builds as the train climbs the chain lift before rushing over hills, through valleys and curves with up to 45 km/h.

However, the Bob Coaster is not only available with a classic chain lift, but also with a friction wheel launch.

Both systems are designed in such a way that the trains can pass through the layout several times directly one after the other as desired. This allows the Bob Coaster to offer maximum fun for the whole family even in the smallest of spaces.
