17 October 2018 Rockin’ all over the world!
Popular family ride continues to make waves
One of Zamperla’s most popular family rides is without doubt the Rockin’ Tug, an ideal attraction for all ages and the perfect solution for children’s and family areas in any park with its minimal dimensions. Suitable for use both indoors and outdoors, the ride has previously been awarded the Best New Product award at the IAAPA Attractions Expo in the US, cementing its success, and is one of many innovative rides available from Zamperla.
The Rockin’ Tug can be found at venues throughout the world, with recent installations including those at Walibi Rhône Alpes, Jardin D’Acclimatation and Festyland in France, Ravensburger in Germany and Dreamland in the UK, and incorporates a unique ride concept based on the combinatoin of a flat ride motion and a roller coaster ride. Featuring 24 seats and offering a capacity of approximately 600 riders per hour, it is certainly one of Zamperla’s best selling attractions, proven by the fact that over 160 examples have been installed since it was first introduced in 2002, these featuring more than 20 different themes.
It was also the precursor to the well-known Disk’O ride, a larger attraction which incorporates a similar ride movement to the Rockin’ Tug over a longer track.
