Gerstlauer Trains

Thursday, December 5, 2002 8:09 PM
In 2004, there will be a Gerstlauer coaster built in Bobbejaanland Family Park (Belgium) whose trains will be 4 across in 2 rows for one car. RCDB says the coaster will have 8 cars. That's 64 people on one train! Has there ever been this much capacity on a coaster before?

Look closely at the pictures RCDB has. The train is only 2 car because on car, clearly a lead, is attached to a rear car with the slow speed bumper. RCD should have said it has 8, two rows of four pasenger trains.

There has been much more. Chaos at Opry land had 40 2 passanger cars for a whopping 80 person train! (The station was "U" shaped)

Pepsi Ripsaw at Camp Snoopy holds a lot. I think 40, I can't remember exactly how many rows, but I want to say 20. I just remember it was the longest train I've ever seen.

Revolution at Bobbejaanland is said to have a very long train. While it's "only" for 60 riders per train you all sit inline like on a mAck bobsled. This makes it to a very looooong train. Would be cool to ride it.

I've been on that ride many many times because a very close friend of mine loves it. :) It actually has the longest roller coaster train in the world. I believe it features 40 coaches, each accomodating 2 people. That's 80 people in one train! IMHO, Revolution is very nice dark coaster, which beats the Intamin power presented in the form of Goliath (Six Flags Holland)..

Isn't one car for a ride with two loops and two corkscrews a bit unusual?

Yes the Tivoli coasters all have long trains (20 2 side by side cars) But, Chaos and it's clone in Europe had 40 cars that were 2 front to back!

Windjammer (Rest in Pieces) only had 2-car trains and it had loops.

Rest in pieces is right. I look at my new hubcaps and think "Wow, Windjammer is actually giving a smooth ride!" ;)
