Ride historyEdit

Early Years (2009)Edit

As part of the 2009 Nurburgring Race Track project, ring racer was opened for the first time on August 15, 2009. After months of the ride going smoothly, terror struck on September 3, 2009 when a series of explosions in the ride's pneumatic system caused injuries and broken windows. The ride was immediately closed and has been testing for reopening ever since.

Testing and Reopening (2010-2013)Edit

On Halloween 2013, ring racer reopened after successfully testing over the last two years. It is still the holder of the fastest coaster record.

Ride synopsisEdit

The ride begins at a launch pad with a countdown. It then speeds up at 135mph in 2 seconds up a titled 37.5 degree hill. It then goes down a hill and into the main building for half a minute. It then curves back outside and into its station.
