Dynamite is a steel roller coaster located at Freizeitpark Plohn in Lengenfeld, Saxony, Germany.

History

In January 2017, Freizeitpark Plohn revealed its plans to retire the 45-year-old Silver Mine roller coaster and install a replacement attraction which would open in 2019.[1] In April, further details were revealed including the type of roller coaster, at the time simply refereed to as a BigDipper roller coaster.

The name was revealed in August 2017 along with some additional details: the ride would be over 40 metres tall and reach a maximum speed of 100 km/h.[2]

Silver Mine was dismantled in November 2017 with groundwork beginning shortly after.[3]

On 12 August 2018, the park revealed Dynamite's layout.

Dynamite opened on 18 May 2019.[4]

Design

Elements

Upon its opening, Dynamite was the single largest investment made by the park.[5]

Dynamite is the second BigDipper installation from Mack Rides, the first being Lost Gravity which opened at Walibi Holland in 2016. It has a tunnel and a dive drop, similar to that of a Bolliger & Mabillard Wing Coaster. There are two more inversions; a vertical loop and a zero-g roll.

Trains

2 cars. Riders are arranged 4 across in 2 rows, for a total of 8 riders per car. The two outer seats on each row are floorless.
