Bob (or Bobbaan in Dutch) is an Intamin AG bobsled roller coaster located at Efteling in Kaatsheuvel, North Brabant, Netherlands.

NameEdit

The name seems to be inconsistent across the website, the park and signs. "Swiss Bob", "Bob", "Bobslee" or "Bobbaan" can be seen, however just "Bob" is used on the ride's entrance, and thus is the name Coasterpedia uses.

Design & general informationEdit

The ride's station has an Australian-Alps theme. The ride is smooth, especially since the original steel wheels were replaced by softer ones in order to comply with the night-opening license. The ride meanders through the trees, and has some nice drops, curves and points where the ride really picks up some speed.

TrainsEdit

Single car trains. Riders are arranged 2 across in 3 rows for a total of 6 riders per car


The ride used to have cars with inline seating. These were later sold to Six Flags Over Texas for use on their La Vibora roller coaster and replaced with ones that sat two across. The trains were sold in an attempt to raise the ride's capacity.
