Attractiepark Toverland, Sevenum, Limburg, Netherlands -
A few days ago, Vekoma announced that Attractiepark Toverland will be the home of their first Motorbike Launch Coaster. This new innovative ride was first shown at IAAPA 2003 and received great interest.
This new innovation, now named Booster Bike, will combine the thrills of riding a roller coaster with the freedom experienced by riding a motorbike. Vekoma went to great lengths to mount the "bikes" to the train and keep the feel as close to the real thing (riding a motorbike) as they could.
Booster Bike will be around 1968 feet long, 49 feet high, and go from 0 to 46.6 miles per hour in just 3 seconds. This latest Vekoma creation is set to open in early July of 2004.
