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


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 under the same name.[1] The ride was later renamed Laser. It closed in 2008. Right now, it is operating in Germany as Testrecke. It also travels over the world from time to time.[2]

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



It features two consecutive vertical loops and a large helix.


2 trains with 7 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows, for a total of 28 riders per train.
