Winjas is a pair of spinning roller coasters located at Phantasialand in Brühl, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. They are situated in Wuze Town, an indoor area of the park. The rides were built by Maurer Söhne.


Winjas helix

The ride has two tracks, which mirror each other, but also feature some unique sections.

The cars are raised via an elevator lift, rather than a traditional lift hill. While on the lift, the cars tilt. The Winjas feature another unique hinged section of track about halfway through, with Fear collapsing forward and Force banking sideways in order to continue.

Both tracks race each other, as the cars start simultaneously and are intertwined in the main hall of Wuze Town. At the very end of the ride, a little surprise element is built in, which shortly drops a section of track a few feet and raises it again.


Winjas car

A car from the ride

14 cars. Riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 4 riders per car Both rows face away from each other.

The cars are able to spin after the first drop. Unlike most spinning roller coasters, the rotation is controlled most of the time allowing for optimal use of the car's momentum, forcing the car to move in certain ways.


The ride is themed to fit in with the Wuze Town area - a fictional deep underground city of myths and fantasy. It is a long lost civilization that women rule. The rides are named after the character Winja, who is the main character of the area. The ride also has its own soundtrack, which can be heard in the queue line. Two samples of the soundtrack for the 2000 Disney film Dinosaur are also used during the ride, respectively the lift and hinged sections.
