The BigDipper – An overview The first Big Dipper was installed at Walibi Holland and the possibilities for other parks to add one to their repertoire are endless.


FUN FACT:


The soundtrack for Dynamite was created by IMAScore.


creates the effect of quite a narrow opening at the front of the tunnel. Inside the tunnel a small bunny hop is surprising to even the most experienced riders, as this comes with a lot of airtime.” And it doesn’t end there. “The car again gains height to have a nice look over the Wild west city but plunges back down to get more speed into a right turn. A quick transition to the left and you find yourself in a vertical loop that leads directly to a corkscrew over the station. After another left turn around the old breakdance ride you again reach the station. The ride is rather short but filled with a lot of speed, airtime and inversions,” says Roeser. Asked how closely Mack Rides worked with Freizeitpark Plohn to develop the ride, Roeser explains: “As with every ride the layout was tailored to fit to the park and the existing trees. It was important to leave the characteristics of the park set in a beautiful forrest.”

The BigDipper cars – short wheelbase for a maximum of manoeuvre The eight-seater car - together with a steep inclined lift and “extraordinary” tight curves and turns - allows fast transitions and creates compact layouts with a maximum of fun. Each car has two rows with four passengers.


Theme your ride to your story Steampunk, futuristic rockets or oragnic shapes – the fibre-glass covers of the BigDipper Coaster car can be themed to the story you want to tell. Mack’s skilled designers will help you get your very own look.


The reaction, says Roeser has been phenomenal:


“Visitors love the ride – for many of them it’s the first time to ride loopings and to experience a rather high rollercoaster. As Freizeitpark Plohn has a lot of families visiting, it was our main goal that also a lot of people are able to ride and aren’t too scared to try it.” Mack Rides is pleased with the outcome, says Roeser:


“We knew we only would have the budget for a short layout but also wanted to pack a lot of elements into it,” adding that Dynamite achieves exactly that.


Modern seat design No shoulder restraints guarantee a maximum degree of freedom, together with the highest safety category (class 5).


Floorless seating On the BigDipper Mack offers both normal and floorless seating. The outer seats in each of the two rows are arranged next to the track and are higher than the middle seats to make riders feel like they are flying through the air.
