HELP

Silver Star is a steel hyper roller coaster located at Europa-Park in Rust, Baden Wuerttemberg, Germany. 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. 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 aged 11 or less or under 140 cm (55 inches) is allowed to ride.

History

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