Amusement Technology – Boomerang Coaster Train – Wonderla Park Bangalore (IND)
Two type Sunkid Heege SCT1200 trains were delivered to two sites in India for customer Wonderla
The customer - Wonderla Holidays Limited – is a leading company in design and operation of amusement parks in India. The company operates two additional parks apart from its flagship park in Bangalore. A fourth one is in the planning stage.
The customer installed two Boomerang runs for its two parks in Bangalore and Hyderabad last year. The trains running there to date are now being replaced by Sunkid trains of type SCT1200. The one in Bangalore is already in operation. The train already delivered to the amusement park in Hyderabad will take up operation in spring 2018.
The decision for a Sunkid train was made after an extensive Wonderla visit to the Walibi Rhône Alpes (FRA) amusement park. Since 2014, a Sunkid train has given the old ride built in 1988 a second lease of life with an entirely new feel. After many test runs and clearing up of technical detailed questions in German production, the customer was convinced of the Sunkid quality – and continues to be.

in this water park
