Dr. Fabrizio Sepe, owner and CEO of Serengeti-Park & Zoo says:


“We are a classic excursion destination for families. So far, our theme park offers many innovative and partly unique action rides for the bravest adventurers. These include our jet and speed boats, as well as monster trucks, quads and much more. But to make sure that younger park visitors have a lot of fun with us, we have deliberately chosen a new attraction for children this year. “This 270 metre long ride is


more exciting than you might think; the high ascent and the tight curves at the bottom of the track create a fast-paced riding experience with amazing gravitational forces. “The new family roller


coaster is for adventurous children from the age of four years (who up to now could only use “simple” rides due to the safety requirements of the “big rides”). We are very happy to offer


a great attraction for children with the Batukai Racer and its really powerful, but cute rhino at the top. The visitor feedback so far proves us right - we see children’s eyes beaming at the exit.”

interesting prospect for large theme parks.


Were there any challenges during the construction phase prior to the pandemic? How did you overcome these? The engineering of the company was already organised and perfectly technically equipped for smart working. Our teams were already used to having meetings online, so the day the lockdown was announced we were able to switch to remote working totally overnight.


We experienced a production delay because of


a mechanical supplier that had to lock down for infection containment, otherwise delivery would also have been anticipated.


Talk me through the ride the experience? The ride is surprising from the start thanks to the silent anti-rollback. It is located in a Zoo, near bungalows, so the noise limit was critical despite it being a coaster made for screaming people! The coaster replaced an old and larger unit


dismissed at the end of 2019, and the target of the project was “family” with passengers from 0.9 metres tall; the speed, course and cars have all been designed to achieve this. The layout is compact but allows for a very pleasant and exciting ride.


Can you provide some technical data/fun facts ? As I have already said, the ride accommodates passengers from 0.9 metres; the ride’s dimensions are approximately 20x40x15 and it reaches a maximum speed of 16m/s. The independent single restraints and other steering


axles on the front and back of the cars are remarkable elements too.


Now that gates are open, what has been guests’ reaction to Batukai Racer? It’s had an enthusiastic reaction; despite not being experts, guests have been pleasantly surprised by the innovation evident in the ride. This “young and lively rhinoceros” has replaced what now seems like an “old dinosaur” in comparison.
