Consistent: Gerstlauer Elektro Becomes Gerstlauer Amusement Rides

 

“Gerstlauer Elektro GmbH” is now “Gerstlauer Amusement Rides GmbH”. According to company sources, considerable expansion in the product palette rendered the change necessary. In addition, the long-time manager of operations, Siegfried Gerstlauer, has been appointed Managing Director - alongside Hubert Gerstlauer.


Construction work has begun on Gerstlauer’s new spinning coaster at “Galaxyland”  in West Edmonton Mall, Alberta/Canada. The 455-metre long spinning coaster will be the largest new attraction since the park’s opening in 1985. Its tracks will wind through the whole park, making them visible to all guests. This spinning coaster is the first of its kind in Canada and also Gerstlauer’s first installation in the country. Gary Hanson, General Manager of West Edmonton Mall had this to say about the new investment: “As the largest indoor show in the world, we are constantly on the lookout for new attractions for our guests. The new coaster is definitely going to live up to expectations.” (eap)
