Galaxi car

A car from the now-defunct Galaxi at Funtown Splashtown U.S.A.

The Galaxi (Sometimes called "Galaxy") is a mass-produced portable roller coaster model primarily manufactured by Italian company S.D.C, who went bust in 1993. The design was first produced in the 1970s, and over fifty copies have been produced since[1].

Sixteen Galaxi roller coasters are currently in park-based operation across North America, Europe and Australia, with another standing but not operating. Over 36 amusement parks have operated, or are operating a Galaxi ride, excluding travelling funfairs.

DesignEdit

The Galaxi is a steel roller coaster made of steel. It is designed to be transportable, and disassembles onto seven trailers.

The ride is similar in design to the Zyklon model, manufactured by the now defunct Pinfari, also Italian.

TrainsEdit

Single car trains. Riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 4 riders per car

In popular cultureEdit

In the Season 4 CSI episode "Turn of the Screws",a Galaxi coaster is the main subject of the investigation. A sabotaged train with five riders derailed and landed in a nearby carpark, killing the passengers and revealing the body of a park employee hidden in the trunk of a car[2]. The roller coaster used for filming was Screaming Mummy at Pharao's Lost Kingdom[3].

InstallationsEdit

Due to the sheer amount of Galaxi coasters produced, and how difficult it is to track them, this list may be inaccurate.
