Predator

Inverted for an adrenaline kick

When the safety bar is in place, you’re ready to go – riding in the Predator is not for the faint-hearted. Those who dare are rewarded with the ultimate adrenaline kick.

What’s special: to the left, to the right, and upside down

The Predator celebrated its premiere at the Munich Oktoberfest in 2018. The ride in the upside-down ride Predator is spectacular and not for the faint-hearted. Those who decide to ride will experience the following: when the safety bars have been closed, the journey begins. While the platform of the Predator turns to the left, the gondola itself turns to the right in the opposite direction. It’s already too late to get off, because the gondola is raised on two masts. And if you think that’s exciting, you haven’t gotten to the top yet. Then things really get going: The gondola flips over at a maximum height of 16 meters and a speed of 60 km/h. Here, the adrenaline kick is included. Showman Kaiser bought the ride in 2014 and had it completely redesigned. Previously the Predator had several owners, and was known under the names “Transformer 2” and “Star Gate.”

Predator: For adrenaline junkies

A ride in the Predator is just the thing for adrenaline junkies. If you like upside-down rides and want an experience, this is just the place for you. People with weak stomachs, on the other hand, should probably watch from below. Because the sight alone is impressive. All passengers ages 12 and up and 1.40 meters (55 inches) tall are permitted to ride.

Predator for backseat drivers: how astronauts feel

Sitting in the Predator gives you an idea of how an astronaut must feel. The same forces are in effect as in a rocket launch. The acceleration is between 30 and 40 meters per second (3-4 g). By way of comparison, that’s about ten times the force exerted on a person in a car.
