The Star Shape’s name is derived from its gondola arms mounted in a star-shaped pattern with five seats each. These arms turn in circles at the upper end of a 30 meter long main mast. When the gondolas come at 30 meters height to a halt, the stars seem to be within one’s grasp. From up here, passengers are able to have a birds eye view of the entire park and the surrounding landscape. But this moment of repose is only short-lived. As soon as the gondola cross has rotated its full cycle at this dizzying height, the main mast nosedives while rotating around its own axis.
Yet there is more to come. The single gondola arms also turn at an angle of 360 degrees while three different rotational movements spin the passengers around with their legs dangling freely. Riders will experience a great high from this enormous adrenaline rush.
A three times redundant safety restraint system returns your passengers safe and sound to home position. Their heads will still be spinning when they put their feet back on the ground. Simply watching makes you giddy and quickens your pulse.
With its impressive size and its elaborate tower lighting the Star Shape is a landmark and a magnet to visitors. It certainly will be one of the most thrilling, if not the most thrilling, ride adventures your park has to offer.
