Sky Racer


Tivoli Friheden Aarhus, Denmark

Following the enormous popularity of the Sky Roller, Gerstlauer presents in 2017 the first Sky Racer which brings the advantages of the “Sky”-series to a compact dimension.
In the Danish amusement park Tivoli Friheden, now up to 10 persons fly through the air at the same time with the Sky Racer “Sommerfuglen”. Once the 10 comfortable single-rider gondolas are raised to approx. 4m, there is not stopping. The gondola breaks are released and thanks to the control wings on each side of the seat each rider is able to roll over.

Depending on one’s fancy and skill the ride with “Sommerfuglen” can either be a hair-raising flight adventure or a scenic flight. “Sommerfuglen” is for everyone!
Gerstlauer’s successful “Sky” concept can now also be found in the Danish amusement park Tivoli Frihelden.
