Anaheim, Calif. — Adventure City is proud to kick off the construction of its newest roller coaster Rewind Racers, expected to open this summer. At a cost of over 2 million dollars, this coaster will be Adventure City’s largest single investment to date in its 20 year history.
Gerstlauer Amusement Rides GMBH, a well-known German ride manufacturer has been tasked with building Rewind Racers, the first family shuttle coaster in North America. The coaster will move both forward and backwards and will accommodate riders of all ages. With a mere 39″ height requirement, the coaster’s unique design comfortably seats both small children and adult passengers, allowing the whole family to join in on the fun. Themeing for the ride ride, queue, station and video production for the building interiors will be provided by R&R Creative Amusement Designs of Anaheim, Calif.
For many of our visitors, an Adventure City coaster is their first roller coast ride, said Allan Ansdell, President of Adventure City. We are so excited that this summer, Rewind Racers will be many children’s first coaster ride, in reverse!
Family owned and operated, Adventure City opened its gates in 1994 and has been known as Southern California’s
“Little Theme Park That’s Big on Family Fun.” Located on the border of Anaheim and Stanton, Adventure City boasts a variety of rides including Adventure City Express Train, Drop Zone and Rescue Ride for the whole family to enjoy. Also, not-to-miss attractions like live entertainment in the children’s theater and friendly animals to meet in the petting farm.
