History[edit | edit source]
Originally called Sirocco, the ride, excluding the two spikes at either end, was enclosed for the 1999 season to reduce noise. In addition, the coaster was renamed Turbine that same year.
Turbine closed in 2008 and reopened in 2013 as Psyké Underground. It was given a renovation, including a new Gerstlauer train, a new LIM launch to replace the flywheel launch and enclosing the spikes. The ride is now completely enclosed, making it the first indoor shuttle loop. It also has the ability to operate on rainy days.
