History[edit]

During the 2002 season, an American high school teacher spent 104 days riding Expedition GeForce for 10 hours each day. He went on to raise €10,000 euros for charity by riding Expedition GeForce and Super Wirbel for 49 days in 2003.

Durng April 2010, one of the cars derailed causing the train to come to a sudden stop at the bottom of the first drop. Although no serious injuries were reported, riders had to be evacuated by firefighters.
