Translated the name means "Bobsled" in German. Heide Park's Bobbahn is a Bobsled coaster or modern-day, steel version of the classic Flying Turns. It's also the largest and longest of its kind in the world. Designed by Mack, seven-car trains travel in a U-shaped trough, swaying back-and-forth throughout the layout. Since the trough is not a precise track allowing the vehicle to make its own path, each ride experience on Bobbahn will be unique. Each seven-car train is decorated with the colors and flags of various countries – Canada, Denmark, Switzerland, Sweden, and United States of America.
