Bobsled Coaster

Van Helsing's Factory

Movie Park Germany Bottrop-Kirchhellen, Germany



The newest rollercoaster at Movie Park Germany is only for the brave! Opening in June, 2011 ‘Van Helsing’s Factory’ takes guests on a creepy vampire hunt set in the 1960’s.

Utilizing the popular Bobsled Coaster system, this indoor attraction combines a thrilling roller coaster with an extraordinarily-themed dark ride. The biggest challenge of this project was to integrate the roller coaster in an existing hangar. But once again the specialists of Gerstlauer Amusement Rides succeeded in showing the adaptability of the Bobsled Coaster concept and created a ride that gives you the creeps.

During the 400 meter long ride guests are taken through several dark ride parts and classic roller coaster sections. The ride features steep drops, camelbacks, banked curves, helices and Wild Mouse turns. Two lift hills approximately 8 meters tall will keep the coaster cars going.

Jump in one of the themed vampire mobiles and enjoy a never seen before themed indoor roller coaster ride. ‘Van Helsing’s Factory’ is a bloody good roller coaster experience by Gerstlauer Amusement Rides.
