Silver Star is a steel hyper roller coaster located at Europa-Park in Baden-Württemberg, Germany. It is currently the second tallest roller coaster in Europe (after Shambhala) and was the tallest roller coaster built by Bolliger & Mabillard before Leviathan opened. It 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 under the age of 11 or under 140 cm (55 inches) is allowed to ride.
