Gold Rush opens at Attractiepark Slagharen

Slagharen, Overijssel, Netherlands

Attractiepark Slagharen opened Gold Rush, the park’s new Gerstlauer triple LSM launch coaster today. Using a shuttle style launch where the train goes forward and backward and forward again through the station, the coaster reaches a top speed of 56 mph (90 km/h). At an estimated $5.3 million (€5 million) cost, the coaster also features two inversions – a dive loop and a first-of-its-kind sling loop. Gold Rush replaced Thunder Loop, the park’s classic Schwarzkopf Looping Star coaster that operated from 1979-2016. Click the headline for more information
