Jardin d’Acclimatation Adding New Gerstlauer Coaster And More
The classic Jardin d’Acclimatation in Paris, France has descided to undergo a renovation. Along with new steampunk themes spread throughout the park, two new rides are also being added — Speed Rockets and L’astrolabe.
The Speed Rockets coaster is a custom design of the Gerstlauer Bobsled wild mouse coasters. The ride will stand 36.1 feet tall, have a course of over 1312 feet, and reach speeds in excess of 27 miles per hour. Each ride on the Speed Rockets will cost two tickets ($6.80) and lasts 3 minutes. When the new coaster opens, it’ll be the fifth coaster at the historic gardens.
Also new this summer is L’astrolabe. This new ride will take 24 riders on a dizzying, thrilling journey. Like Speed Rockets, L’astrolabe is also draped in a steampunk overlay.
This sneak peek video was recently released by the park.
Both new rides are expected to open on June 1st. For tickets and more information, visit the official Jardin d’Acclimatation website by clicking here.
