Gerstlauer Euro Fighter Hydrus Highlight


Casino Pier Seaside Heights, New Jersey, USA



In Seaside Heights in the US state of New Jersey, roller coaster fans are now enjoying a ride with a rare view: "Hydrus" in Casino Pier is just a few meters from the sea shore. The new Euro-fighter of Gerstlauer offers its passengers at the North Atlantic beach an exciting driving experience.

From a distance 'Hydrus’ will catch visitors’ eyes with its bright blue vertical lift. When the car reaches the highest point at 98 ft eight passengers will enjoy a stunning view over the pier and the open sea. The beautiful view will last for only a few seconds though. Slowly the vehicle slopes over the highest point and then falls into the depth with a maximum inclination of 97 °! Only a few seconds later, the passengers race back toward the sky and head for the first time in the looping. This is followed by a combination of inline loop, banked turn and heartline roll and camelhump, which complete the ride with the "Hydrus".

A special location - practically directly over the sea - and near-miss elements, thanks to the compact layout, make this Euro-Fighter of Gerstlauer Amusement Rides GmbH a unique ride that leaves no eye dry.
