Germany’s Fort Fun Abenteuerland debuts Air Race 8.2

The Air Race 8.2 Thunderbirds is a custom, bird-themed thrill ride installed in the new Native American themed area recently opened at Fort Fun Abenteuerland in Germany.

Launched on May 29, the Air Race takes riders on an amazing journey which replicates the experiences and sensations of an acrobatic aeroplane flight, with banks, loops, dives and weightlessness that will test even the most experienced thrill seekers. The action takes place up to 7.6m (25ft) above the ground and “pilots” experience accelerations of almost 3G, right side up and upside down. The class 5 over-the-shoulder restraints incorporated into the seats allow riders from 120cm (48 inches) to participate in what is an amazing “flying” experience.


In addition, thanks to its heavy theming and hypnotic movement, the visual impact of Air Race is also truly impressive.
