New thrills on the “Karacho” rollercoaster

 

Project data

Project

Construction of the “Karacho” rollercoaster in Tripsdrill

Location
Cleebronn near Heilbronn

Purpose
new rollercoaster, 30 m high and capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in only 1.6 seconds, allows 960 riders per hour to experience the effects of gravity combined with speed.  

Formwork systems
  • XXL variant NOEtop wall formwork 
  • NOEtop R 275 circular formwork


Special features
Among the particular challenges faced by the Amos team were the short construction time of only 6 months, the difficult weather conditions - it rained almost every day - and the different levels of the foundations. The foundations were almost all to be concreted separately so as to prevent transmission of the vibrations from the operating rollercoaster. Almost all the concrete buildings are completely or partially covered with earth and therefore cannot be seen by the visitors.

"Wir sind mit den Produkten und Dienstleistungen der Firma NOE sehr zufrieden. Seit Jahren erstellen wir fast alle horizontalen Betonelemente mit der NOEtop. Die Arbeitsvorbereitung ist sehr gut, vor allem bei den 10 m hohen Wänden erleichterten uns die NOE-Schalpläne die Arbeit wesentlich." Polier Matthias Duran
