The Olympia Looping

The Olympia Looping rollercoaster is impressive, not only because of its size and the five loopings, but also because of its ride qualities and smooth running. Highly recommended for first class events.

The Olympia Looping

Safety first!

The Olympia looping is equipped with full automatic brakes operating even in case of power failure! The blocking system has double security measures and an “occupied/release” switch simultaneously controlling both elevators.

Fast as lightning!

The maximum speed is 100 km/h and is electrically controlled by two elevators.


Each train can carry 20 to 28 passengers.

Get yourself loaded!

The maximum G-load is 5.2 for the vertical and +/- 0.5 for the horizontal level. (G = multiplied by your own weight.)

Waiting sections

The Olympia looping is equipped with four waiting sections providing maximum security. The train passes the reduction brake at 48 km/hour before finally coming to a stop at the station.
