INFINITY COASTER

The Infinity Coaster is the Gerstlauer platform suited to medium to large thrill coasters.

About

The Infinity Coaster came out of years of research. Gerstlauer developed the Infinity Coaster with the goal of meeting the needs of every client. With record-breaking installations at parks like Hansa Park in Germany and Adventureland in Iowa, the Infinity Coaster is considered one of the attraction industry’s best roller coaster platforms.

Restraint

The Infinity Trains utilize some of the industry’s most comfortable and safest restraints.  This redundant restraint secures a wide range of guests.  In addition, the seats, which are raised off the floor and slightly reclined, offer unique feeling of openess and comfort.  These are just some of the reasons Gerstlauer’s Infinity Trains are regarded as some of the best in the industry.

Lift System

Gerstlauer pioneered the use of an vertical lift without an anti-rollback. During the ascent the ride vehicle pushes magnetic braking fins out of the way and they return into place once the vehicle as passed. Should a power outage occur the train will slowly return backwards to the bottom of the first hill. This allows an evacuation to happen at the bottom of the lift hill

Launch System

While Linear Synchronous Motors (LSM’s) have been utilized in the industry since the mid-90’s, the Gerstlauer system is different from anything amusement parks have seen to-date. We examined the various acceleration methods and settled upon the LSM because of the low energy draw and system reliability.

This launch system is simple, affordable and when used in conjunction with a Gerstlauer energy storage unit has a short peak around 300 kW! The capacitor is simple for parks to use and easy for maintenance staff to work with.
