Etymology

The naming of the mountain coaster is somewhat unclear. While it is now being called 'Erlebnis-Rodelbahn Ruhla', a sign at the ride refers to it as 'Erlebnisrodelbahn Thüringen' linking to the state ('Land' in German) of Thüringen, the park and mountain coaster are located in. On the ride chips however a third name is mentioned, namely 'Alexanderturm-bahn'. This third name makes reference to the 'Carl-Alexander-Turm' or 'Carl-Alexander-Tower' in English, being a lookout tower at the top of the Ringberg mountain in the town of Ruhla. The mountain coaster is situated at the bottom of that mountain. It is uncertain if any of the other names were ever official names of the ride.

Trivia

The ride is being advertised as being the steepest mountain coaster in Germany with an uphill incline of 35% and a downhill angle of 22%.
