Galaxy Orbiter is the 4th roller coaster to be built at Galaxyland Amusement Park indoors at the West Edmonton Mall in Canada. This exciting "spinning" roller coaster is nearly 1,500 feet long and takes riders on a wild ride descending from 44 feet to reach a top speed of 30 mph. Adding to the thrills, Galaxy Orbiter's specially designed four-passenger cars spin like toy tops throughout the ride. Since the spinning of the roller coaster cars is uncontrolled, each ride on Galaxy Orbiter should be a one-of-a-kind roller coaster experience.
