The Mindbender is the pinnacle thrill ride in Galaxyland. Built for the parks expansion in 1986, it was open for only a few months before it suffered a tragic accident, which resulted in the deaths of three people. The coasters’ safety record has been near-flawless ever since.
The coaster was built by Schwarzkopf in the final years before its bankruptcy. The ride is is 44.1 meters (145 ft.) tall. It features three loop-the-loops, and a staggering 38.7 meter (127 ft.) drop. It currently has three trains, each with a capacity of 12 people. The trains can reach speeds of nearly 100 kph (~60 mph).
It is the world’s largest indoor triple loop roller-coaster, and has been in use ever since the park’s opening in 1983.
