Venus GP (Japanese: ヴィーナスGP) was a steel roller coaster located at Space World in Yahata Higashi, Kitakyushu, Fukuoka, Japan. It was one of the first roller coasters built by Maurer AG, and it was built in conjunction with Anton Schwarzkopf.
The control and pneumatic systems were provided by Gerstlauer.
The ride closed on December 31, 2017 alongside the rest of Space World. On the park's closing day, the ride's final train had fireworks launching out of it.
Design[edit | edit source]
When it first opened, Venus was painted turquoise with white supports. It was later repainted green with blue supports.
