The first two roller balls, Wilde Hilde and Nid des Marsupilamis, are actually only 18 metres wide.

Indeed the manufacturer later widened the attraction by adding a piece of track running parallel to the lift in order to easily evacuate riders when the on-board electrical motor of a vehicle stops during the lift.
