Maurer Rides, the theme park-oriented division of German engineering conglomerate Maurer Sohne Group, has successfully installed a new Spinning Coaster ride at the soon-to-be-opened Rainbow Magic Land near Rome, Italy.

Occupying the site of the old Terra Magica theme park, the €200m Rainbow Magic Land resort is scheduled to open early next year, and recent images taken of the site suggest construction is on track.

Maurer has been enlisted to develop an X-Car Launch Coaster and an indoor/outdoor SC3000 Spinning Coaster with a base area of 40m x 60m.

"We have handed the SC over to the customer as ‘ready for testing’, and it should be ready for the park opening, which is scheduled for spring 2011, with seven S-Cars and a capacity of 850 people per hour," the company said.
