Born of myth and imagination, Apollo’s Chariot soared high up on the list of favorite coasters when it debuted–and hasn’t come down since.
While it’s consistently ranked as one of the top 10 steel coasters in the world, few rides come close to the experience waiting for you here.
Like the Olympian sun god, Apollo’s Chariot races toward daring heights, only to dazzle riders on the way back down with one of the smoothest, fastest trails ever blazed.
Meet Alpengeist. One of the tallest, fastest, most insane coasters in the world. Before you can say “boo,” the floor drops beneath your feet.
The surprises have begun.
What comes next is what many coaster enthusiasts still call the ride of a lifetime. After climbing to an Alpine high 195 feet, riders are hurtled through six staggering inversions at speeds up to 67 miles per hour.
Consistently voted one of the top 10 steel coasters in the world, it’s the spirit of the Alpengeist that will haunt you long after you are finally released from its power.
EUROPE IN THE AIR
This high-tech simulator takes guests on a fun-filled journey across the terrain, over the seas and through the air over Europe.
The continent’s most recognizable landmarks will be featured, like Stonehenge in England, the Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany and the Coliseum in Rome. The journey continues through the streets of Paris, along the Thames River and into the sky over Ireland for a view unlike any other.
Racing through the canals of Italy, carving a path as they go, are the infamous Roman Rapids.
To challenge these mighty waters is to challenge a part of this great and ancient empire itself — and to get seriously soaked in the process.
Climb aboard this raft for six and you’ll feel as if you’ve boarded a water chariot, racing along currents of white water.
Dodge drenching waterfalls, spin through twists and turns, and come out on the other side with a whole new definition of the words “Roman bath.”
