Western-Expressen is a Vekoma roller coaster located at TusenFryd in Vinterbro, Oslo, Norway.


The ride originally opened in 2001 at Mirabilandia in Italy as Family Adventure. It would eventually close there in 2011, with its former spot standing vacant for many years, eventually being filled up with the station and parts of Desmo Race. It opened in its current Norwegian location in 2012 as Western-Expressen. It later received VR glasses, becoming Steampunk Hunters in 2018. The VR was eventually discontinued, with the coaster reverting back to its previous name. The timeframe for this is currently unknown.
