With the start of the new season, Djurs Sommerland in Denmark put Denmark’s highest, fastest and most impressive GYRO SWING named “TIGEREN” into public operation.
TIGEREN, meaning “Tiger” in Danish, is themed in connection to the powerful and mighty animal living in the Asian jungles. Located at the Wild Asia themed area of the park it joins DRAGE KONGEN, Intamin’s SUSPENDED FAMILY COASTER (installed in 2017), PIRATEN, Intamin’s MEGA LITE COASTER and JUVELEN, the FAMILY LAUNCH COASTER (both opened in 2013).
The swinging pendulum of TIGEREN reaches a top speed of 100km/h combined with a comfortable slow rotation speed of the gondola. Most important of all is the suspended seating arrangement for 40 passengers, all facing outward, producing a sensational feeling of flying. As the pendulum passes through the vertical position, the passengers experience the thrill of increased G-forces. Swinging to a height of up to 45 meters with a 120degree angle of swing, the sensation of almost complete weightlessness is dazzling any rider daring to try out TIGEREN.
Besides the seats and the restraint, which both are guaranteeing highest passenger comfort, also the main drive represents a highly innovative design. Executed as a direct drive, it is the most powerful on the market and at the same time almost noiseless. Intamin’s GYRO SWING is not only the most spectacular, it is probably the quietest round ride of this class and size.
Intamin is proud of having contributed once again to the success of Djurs Sommerland and would like to sincerely thank the entire team for the great cooperation.
