History[edit | edit source]

Photographs of dark green track at a manufacturing facility were posted online in April 2016. It was subsequently determined that they belonged to a clone of Takabisha.[1] Gerstlauer and Triple Five Group officially revealed this coaster and a spinning coaster in November 2017. A model of the two roller coasters was on display during IAAPA 2017.[2]

The name was revealed during the American Coaster Enthusiast's Eastcoaster event on February 2, 2019.[3]

The roller coaster opened with the park on October 25, 2019.[4]

Design[edit | edit source]


TMNT Shellraiser is a clone of Takabisha at Fuji-Q Highland, but with a slightly steeper drop. It begins with a pre-launch section that includes a heartline roll before going through an LSM launch that launches from 0-62.1 mph in 2 seconds . The second half of the ride begins with a vertical chain lift hill and a beyond vertical drop at an angle of 121.5 degrees; the steepest drop in the world.

The roller coaster is intertwined with Shredder, a Gerstlauer spinning roller coaster.

Trains[edit | edit source]

6 cars. Riders are arranged 4 across in 2 rows for a total of 8 riders per car. Riders are held in by over-the-shoulder harnesses.
