Spinning Coaster

Galaxy Orbiter

West Edmonton Mall Edmonton, Canada



The new Spinning-Coaster "Galaxy Orbiter" at Galaxyland, West Edmonton Mall (Canada) now marks the biggest addition to the park since it opened in 1985.

The Spinning-Coaster will create a very visible addition to Galaxyland with the track winding its way around the entire park.

Each car on the coaster train will not only wind along the park-wide track but spin on its own axis while doing so, thereby adding a whole new dimension to the traditional roller coaster ride and ensuring no two rides are ever the same.

This will be the first coaster of its kind in Canada and furthermore the first installation of Gerstlauer Amusement Rides in Canada so far.
