CUSTOM Roller Coaster TRAINS

 Re-defining safety, comfort and design as only Gerstlauer can.


From custom-designed trains on proprietary track systems (Iron Rattler), to updating classic Schwarzkopf trains (sooperdooperlooper), to wooden coaster trains (Arkansas Twister), Gerstlauer’s custom coaster vehicles combine the latest technology, utmost safety and rider comfort.

Cutting Edge Design

Extreme performance requires extreme safety.  With these trains, it’s no problem. Every vehicle features four self-supporting seats with either U or T-shaped lap bars. The use of two hydraulic cylinders allows each lap bar to be infinitely adjusted as well as adds redundancy for maximum safety. Add stadium-style seating for a perfect view from every seat.

Uncompromising Quality

A commitment to high quality standards is the cornerstone of the Gerstlauer corporate philosophy. These trains employ the most advanced German engineering technology and are manufactured in strict conformity with the stringent DIN and ASTM standards.


Gerstlauer’s custom trains can be installed on any roller coaster – regardless of the manufacturer – making them an ideal choice for both new projects and as retrofits on older, aging attractions. In addition, the fiberglass bodies can be fully customized to satisfy any customer’s theming or even lighting requirements.

Simply put: with Gerstlauer’s unparalleled craftsmanship and design, the possibilities are endless!
