Teststrecke (German for Test Track) is a portable steel roller coaster that travels around Germany and occasionally the Netherlands. It was located at Wurstelprater in Vienna, Vienna, Austria. The ride is owned by German company Steiger Achterbahn GmbH & Co. KG.

History

The ride operated at Playcenter São Paulo in Brazil and was originally called Looping Star. The attraction initially had a single vertical loop, but a second one was added after two years of operation, and the coaster was renamed Colossus. It was later located at Dorney Park where it opened on 3 May 1986.[1] The ride was later renamed Laser. It closed in 2008 and has since become a travelling roller coaster.[2]

From March 30 until 5 September 2019, Testrecke operated at Wurstelprater.
