Dynamite is a steel roller coaster under construction at Freizeitpark Plohn amusement park in Lengenfeld, Germany. Manufactured by Mack Rides, the roller coaster will reach a height of 144.3 feet (44.0 m), have a top speed of 62 miles per hour (100 km/h), and will feature three inversions. The ride is situated on what was the Silver Mine roller coaster, which was dismantled shortly after the official announcement in 2017.

History[edit | edit source]

In January 2017, the amusement park Freizeitpark Plohn were in discussion with the towns Lengenfeld Technical Committee about replacing the Silver Mine roller coaster in the park for a new attraction in 2019.[1][2] In April 2017, publications by the Lengenfeld Technical Committee hinted that the "Big Dipper" model from Mack Rides would be constructed for the Freizeitpark Plohn.[3][4] Later in August 2017, "Dynamite" was officially announced by the amusement park,[5][6] and initial construction for the roller coaster started soon after in November 2017.[7]

In March 2018, foundation work for the roller coaster began,[8][9] with construction temporarily halting in June 2018 having the tunnel work completed and the roller coasters station begun.[10] On 12 August 2018, the amusement park published an animated point-of-view shot of the roller coasters layout.[11][12]

Ride experience[edit | edit source]

The car hits the lift hill directly after leaving the station, ascending at a rough 45° to the maximum height of 144.3 feet (44.0 m). From there, the train slowly flips over into a "Dive Drop"[13] and then leads into an underground tunnel.[9] Following that is a non-inverting Immelmann loop, and then a low lying 270° clockwise helix that stays very close to the ground around the lift hill. The two remaining inversions, a vertical loop and a zero-gravity role follow directly after that, and a counter clockwise 180° takes riders right into the brake run.[11][12][13]

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

Trains[edit | edit source]

The ride will operate with two open air trains, each consisting of one car that can hold up to eight riders in two rows of four.[13]
