Chura Racer was a steel family roller coaster previously located at Serengeti-Park in Hodenhagen, Lower Saxony, Germany.

History

The ride originally opened as Marienkäferbahn in 1983. The train resembled a ladybird at this time. This was changed to a frog theme in 1999, the name of the coaster was changed to Froschflitzer to reflect this change. The ride met its final name change in 2016, being known as Chura Racer from then on.

The coaster gave its final rides in 2019, closing for good at the end of that season due to high maintenance costs and its overall age. A piece of the track, along with part of the train would be displayed in the park to serve as a memory to the ride. It was replaced with Batukai-Racer in 2020.
