ABC Rides Switzerland has introduced two versions of its new Booster Coaster, intended for young riders. A variety of themed trains is available.
Booster Coaster 150 is the first Kiddie Launch Coaster, allowing youngsters to discover their first launch experience. ABC Rides will use the well-established booster wheel launch technology proven on numerous Intamin Family Launch Coasters. It employs 150 meters (492 feet) of track laid out on an ultra-compact 40 by 14 meter (131 by 46 foot) footprint. Ready to take off in the station, the four-coach train, carrying up to 12 passengers, is accelerated to an initial speed of 41 kph (25 mph) in just two seconds.
Similarly, Booster Coaster 285 consists of 285 meters (935 feet) of track laid out on an ultra-compact 52 by 24 meter (171 by 79 foot) footprint. The 4-coach train, carrying up to 12 passengers, is accelerated to an initial speed of 47 kph (29 mph) in just two seconds. Using two different launch sections allows a more diversified ride experience with multiple track crossings, a giant inclined helix, and eight direction changes.
