June 6, 2015 was the grand opening Rewind Racers at Adventure City in Anaheim, California and guests of all ages were lined up to ride Gerstlauer’s newest attraction
Rewind Racers, Gerstlauer’s first Family Shuttle Coaster in the Western Hemisphere, was a hit with riders of all ages. Adventure City's president Allan Ansdell Jr. stated “We wanted something that was unique that would be exciting but smooth for the kids,”
Adam Sandy, Chief Business Development Officer for Ride Entertainment commented on the experience being different than anything else you will find for thousands of miles.
Sandy went on to explained, “Riders are pulled up the first lift hill backwards, go down the drop and the course forwards, rise up a second lift, and then experience it all again backwards. It is an awesome ride!”
Taking riders 39 feet in the air at a top speed of 39 MPH, the 593 foot long coaster is suitable for riders 39 inches and taller.
For now, sound and video effects augment the ride and in the future additional themed elements will be placed atop the lifts. Rewind Racers is sure to be a must do ride for the entire family!
