As the world amusements industry continues to buck the global economic downturn, 2011 promises to be one of Gerstlauer Amusement Rides.

"We are very pleased with the continued success," said Siegfried Gerstlauer, the German company’s managing director.

"The company is not only busy, but we are involved in many unique projects across the globe. We are particularly excited because we will be introducing two new family coaster concepts at the IAAPA convention."
