Stanton, CA — Southern California's family amusement park Adventure City will build a first-of-its-kind roller coaster to open later this summer.

Built by Gerstlauer Amusement Rides of Germany, Rewind Racers, will be a "shuttle" coaster and designed to have the train travels both forwards and backwards during the ride.

The $2-million Rewind Racers shuttle coaster is a first-of-its-kind attraction for a US amusement park. Adventure City hopes to have the new roller coaster ready for a summer opening.

Departing from the station, Rewind Racers will begin in reverse with a backward climb up a lift hill. Following a brief show scene or "pit stop" inside a garage, the train will race forwards descending back into and through the station at 30 miles per hour. The roller coaster will continue with a series of banked curves and airtime hills. At the opposite end of the track the train will ascend a second lift hill and enter a second pit stop garage for a second show scene. The train will then descends out of the garage and repeat the course, this time while traveling backwards.

Adventure City hopes to have the ride ready for a May opening, but construction has not yet begun. Rewind Racers replaces Tree Top Racers, a classic wild mouse coaster that was retired in 2012.

Gerstlauer Amusement Rides has built similar family shuttle coasters in both 2011 and 2012 at parks in Europe. R&R Creative Amusement Designs has been contracted for video production and thematic design for Rewind Racers queue, show scenes, station and train.

Adventure City is a two-acre amusement park in Orange County with 11 rides and attractions, especially for children. For more information, visit www.adventurecity.com.
