Roller Coaster Vehicles

Gerstlauer offers some of the most versatile roller coaster trains on the planet. They have completely redefined the concept of coaster vehicles their bold new design.


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

Cutting Engine Design

The use of two hydraulic cylinders allows each lap bar to be infinitely adjusted and offers maximum safety. Gerstlauer’s train has the option of stadium seating, meaning a perfect view for every rider.
