The Kiddy Racer was a model of steel kiddie roller coaster previously manufactured by German manufacturer Gerstlauer. It is the smallest Gerstlauer roller coaster model. It debuted in 2013, though the truly first installation isn't known due to missing dates. It was discontinued in 2022, being officially replaced with the Bob Coaster as the smallest coaster model by Gerstlauer. The Bob Coaster does allow adults to ride, being a possible reason for it replacing the Kiddy Racer.
The Kiddy Racer has an oval layout with a curved drop, single hill and a left-hand turn and is designed for children between 0.9 metres and 1.2 metres. It has a track width of 250 Millimeters. The Kiddy Racer is the only Gerstlauer roller coaster product to only feature 1 layout. No custom layouts exist either. This even goes for the colour scheme; every installation has red track and yellow supports. The supports of the kiddy racer are fitted on a base frame instead of using footers. This allows the model to fit on all kinds of terrain without having to pour footers, bringing the overall cost down. This was also seen on the compact layouts of the Euro-Fighter. This also returned in the Bob Coaster, being the Kiddy Racer's spiritual succesor.
Kiddy Racers feature a single car which seats a single rider. Riders are held in by a lap-bar restraint. These cars are all designed like soapboxes, including non-functioning steering wheel. All the installations use this same car design. The colour of the car's interior is always blue, except for Huracanito where it is red. It is unknown if this was done by the park itself or by Gerstlauer. The Kiddie Racer can be operated by either park staff or the parents of the riding kid.
