Silver Star is a steel hyper roller coaster located at Europa-Park in Rust, Baden Wuerttemberg, Germany. Opened in 2002, it is currently the fourth tallest roller coaster in Europe (after Red Force, Hyperion and Shambhala), drew with Der Schwur des Kärnan, and was the tallest roller coaster built by Bolliger & Mabillard before Leviathan at Canada's Wonderland opened in 2012.[1] The attraction was also the first roller coaster in Europa-Park that was not built by Mack Rides.

As all rides in the park have age (as well as height) restrictions, no one aged 11 or less or under 140 cm (55 inches) is allowed to ride.


In the summer of 2001, Europa-Park announced that Silver Star would be added to the park.[2]

Silver Star opened to the general public on 23 March 2002.




3 trains with 9 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 4 across in 2 rows, for a total of 72 riders per train.
