Colossos is an extreme roller coaster that has made it into the Guinness Book of World Records as the steepest wooden coaster on Earth. This enormous thrill ride boasts a sense of flying and weightlessness for those daring enough to get on board. You’ll be whizzing through the air, as high as 60 m (197 ft), at speeds of almost 120 km/h (75 mph) and steep drops at a 60 degree angle.
Desert Race is a roller coaster that may not be among the tallest, but it makes up for that in sheer speed. As the coaster launches you from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.4 seconds (!), you’ll feel the force of gravity at about 4.7G!
This extreme roller coaster twists and turns sideways at dizzying speeds that will leave your legs wobbling and your heart pounding at the end.
Being one of Germany’s largest water rides, the Mountain Rafting is a great summertime experience. You sit in your raft with five other passengers, you’ll sail through waterfalls, whirlpools and dangerous plunges. Be sure to bring your bathing suit or waterproof clothes for this one. You’re virtually guaranteed to get wet!
