FEEL THE EXTREME THRILL!

Accelerating to top speed in a matter of seconds combined with our dynamic layouts make Zamperla’s Launch Coasters a market leader. 

Our Lightning Launch Coasters are capable of hourly capacities from 500 to 2,000 pph.

The 1074 meters layout shown on this page is our standard two-launch layout.

Three launches propel the 1043-meter coaster across one of the tallest Top Hats in the world: riders launch forward-backwards-forwards before rocketing over 128 m (420 ft) in the air. 

However, we can custom design a ride to fit your site and budget. 

Launch Coasters utilize the Lightning vehicle, which is our thrill platform. 

We partnered with the leading manufacturer of roller coaster LSM systems.

This ensures our launch system consistently has great uptime. 


Highlights:

  • Restraint and Seat: The Lightning features open seating that keeps riders safe with a comfortable, redundant lap bar. The goal was to create a vehicle that was ergonomic while also creating open seating. 
  • Capacity: The train’s open design allows for a higher real hourly capacity. Guests can enter and exit the train much faster than the competition. 
  • Re-Imagined Car Body: The entire chassis is aluminum-milled. This not only allows the vehicle to weigh less; it dramatically reduces the amount of NDT (Non-Destructive Testing) required every off-season. This minimizes the cost of ownership when compared to traditional roller coaster vehicles.
