Erlebniswelt Seilbahnen Thale (Thale, Saxony-Anhalt, Germany)

Operating since 2003

Roller Coaster · Steel · Flying

Make: Wiegand
Model: All Models / Wie-Hex

Details

Trains:2 cars. Riders are arranged inline in a single row for a total of 1 riders per car.
Facts:This is a single rail flying roller coaster.  So it is a bit of a suspended roller coaster as well.

This is a self-operated ride without an operator present.  Riders go up a set of stairs and lay down on their stomach into the "tube".  There are no restraints whatsoever; you can hold yourself by the bars in the "front window" of the car.  You put a token in the box on your left hand side and when the light turns green, you push the start button.
Etymology:"Hexenbesen" is German for "Witch's Broom(stick)".  In the hills surrounding the place, there are legends of the devil and witches -- this has become local folklore.
