History[edit | edit source]

The roller coaster began operation in 1969 at Wurstelprater in Austria. It closed in 1993 and subsequently reopened at Holly Park in Échemiré, Pays de la Loire, France in 2001 or earlier. It closed with the park after the 2014 season. After a refurbishment, the coaster now travels.

Design[edit | edit source]

The ride is themed to the Winter Olympics bobsled event and has a large recreation of the Olympic Rings, somewhat like Olympia Looping. It has turquoise supports and white track. The theme was added before opening at Holly Park. It originally had red supports and red track.
