Expedition GeForce is a steel roller coaster located at Holiday Park in Haßloch, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. Built by Intamin in collaboration with Werner Stengel, it was constructed onsite by RCS GmbH and opened on 18 June 2001.


Expedition GeForce opened on 18 June 2001, the 30th anniversary of the park.

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 both Expedition GeForce and Super Wirbel for 49 days in 2003.[1]

In 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.[2]

For the 2015 season, a roof was added to the station.[3]
