Discover your first adventure with a launch coaster

Discovery Launch Coaster

ZIERER’s bestselling coaster comes now with a launch system as well and is great fun for the whole family. Even young children can experience the launch coaster feeling with our Discovery Launch Coaster. Everyone from the age of 4 is welcome if accompanied by an adult. ZIERER’s Discovery Launch coaster offers great coaster fun for all age groups with its dynamic and lopping-free design.

The train starts in the station and is being transported forward to the launch area. At this section, there is a magnet disk launch (patent pending) catapulting your passengers towards the course. After that, the train goes up a hill and follows the exciting course with twists and turns back to the station. Magnetic brakes at the station slow the train down and stop it smoothly. With an inclination of 28 degrees and a maximum speed of 45 km/h / 28 mph, the Discovery Launch Coaster is the best choice for the first launch coaster experience. Of course, other layouts and speeds are also available.

This brand-new magnet disk launch makes an even more flexible layout possible with shorter acceleration areas or turns right after the station. Moreover, it is low-wear and low-maintenance due to the contactless magnetic drive technology. This is also the reason why the Discovery Launch Coaster doesn’t depend as much on weather conditions and can be operated during very cold and rainy weather as well. The magnet disk drive guarantees a high availability for your ride due to its simpler and more compact technology compared to other launch drives.

Safety matters! Therefore, the Discovery Launch Coaster cars are equipped with a cushioned seat divider and a raised cushioned side arm rest. Additionally, the cars come with cushioned individual lap bars with a grab rail to make sure that children and adults will enjoy their ride safely. Different ratchet positions allow the adjustment of the lap bars to the passenger’s individual size.

You can choose from a number of standard train themes, e.g. airplane, mine train, Indian or pirate, just to name a few. The Discovery Launch Coaster offers a great variety of different themes. Visitors will repeatedly queue up for this coaster drawn by the exhilarating ride experience and the ride’s appealing design.
