Launch Coaster


Fårup Sommerland Saltum, Denmark



The wait is over: Take off in less than 2sec from 0 to 50mph with the new Launch Coaster by Gerstlauer Amusement Rides GmbH.

The unique coaster at the Danish Fårup Sommerland offers a variety of different high speed experiences: the first part takes you out of your seat with a 66 ft top hat and a floating airtime hill. 

The second part turns you upside down. It starts with a sudden 180° twisted drop which ends in a zero-g-roll. Hold your breath as you fly through an immelmann turn ending upside down in a flatspin. The exciting ride finishes with a helix near to the ground.
