Travelling in Germany / Winter Wonderland, Hyde Park, London UK
Olympia Looping is a Schwarzkopf portable roller coaster with five inversions. It is the largest portable roller coaster in the world. The ride appears at many carnivals in Germany, including the Oktoberfest. The ride features 5 vertical loops that are positioned to look like the logo for the Olympics. Because the loops are very circular, rather than teardrop-shaped, they cause some extreme G-Forces.
It also appears annually at the Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park in London, where for trademark reasons it is renamed the Münchener Looping (Munich Looping).
On September 27, 2008, a driving motor failed on the ride stranding over 20 Oktoberfest attendees at the top of the first hill. They were freed with the help of the Munich fire department.
- The ride weighs 900 tons.
- The ride requires a space 85 meters wide by 36 meters deep.
