Over recent years, German roller coaster manufacturer Maurer Rides has been expanding its presence in both mature and high-growth markets through the signing of numerous high-profile design and build contracts.

The Munich-based company – a subsidiary of Maurer Sohne Group, which also develops structural steelwork and structural protection systems – currently has 10 new rides ready to begin operation, the biggest of which is the Launch-Coaster in Abu Dhabi, followed by three other X-Car coasters, numerous SkyLoops and a Spinning Coaster.

Maurer’s credibility as a supplier of quality thrill rides has been cemented following the signing of several new agreements, including a double order for the new, E200m Rainbow Park in Rome, Italy; a landmark first Chinese order for a new SkyLoop at the soon-to-open World Joyland park in Changzhou; and the company’s latest installation, a high-tech, record-breaking megacoaster, which opened last year at the Universal Studios, Florida, US.
