Motocoaster at Adventureland Sharjah

Adventureland was already a great partner for Zamperla. They had previously purchased two custom Powered Coasters and our engineers wound them through this fantastic indoor family entertainment center.

The park returned to us and asked us to see if we could squeeze our Motocoaster system into the busy indoor space. One added challenge was that we had to isolate the ride’s vibrations from the building structure.

After a lot of analysis we were able to create a unique custom layout that fit in their space. First, we were able to make it work by splitting the lift hill in half so it went two different directions. After taking the train halfway up the track turned and then continued toward the ceiling. For the foundations we created a custom dampening system that ensured the vibrations from the coaster would not effect the building’s substructure.

The resulting coaster layout was a huge success for the park. Our engineers created an exciting MotoCoaster experience that many thought was impossible in such a tight space.

The MotoCoaster system was updated to our Family Thrill Launch Coaster.
