Toutatis is a steel launched roller coaster at Parc Astérix in Plailly, Hauts-de-France, France. The ride is an LSM Launch Coaster manufactured by Intamin and opened on 8 April 2023. Once completed, it became Intamin's Steepest roller coaster, at 101°.


The park's managing director initially confirmed the ride in a documentary in May 2018, where he also stated that Taron at Phantasialand was the park's source of inspiration, sparking rumors that Intamin would be the ride's manufacturer.

At IAAPA 2018, Intamin was officially confirmed as the manufacturer, and the ride's layout was revealed in a promotional video.[1] The ride would be located in a new themed area.[2]

In 2020, an environmental study confirmed the ride's name as Toutatis.

The ride was originally intended to open in 2021. However, in July 2019, it was pushed back to 2022 due to planning issues. The layout was also modified slightly at this point. The ride was delayed yet again in June 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic; it is now intended to open in 2023.[3]

Construction started in early 2022.[4] Testing of the ride began in October 2022.[5]

Toutatis opened on 8 April 2023.[6][7]



Toutatis is an LSM Launch Coaster manufactured by Intamin. The ride features two launch tracks, one of which is a multi-pass launch track that will utilize a high-speed switch track to keep the ride from having to slow down in order to accommodate the multi-pass launch. Toutatis will be one of only three rides in the world to feature this; the other two are Pantheon at Busch Gardens Williamsburg and Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure at Universal's Islands of Adventure. The ride will also feature a top hat with a 101° drop and "anticipation stall," hanging riders over the top of the top hat for an elongated period of time.


3 trains with 5 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows, for a total of 20 riders per train.
