Opening Thursday according to this German article.


Ring roller coaster ride starts on Thursday for the premiere

After years of neglect, the roller coaster at the Nürburgring on Thursday (31.10.) To start their first trip with visitors on board. The spokesman said the ring administrator, Pietro Nuvoloni, on Tuesday, the news agency dpa.


The final operating license for the so-called Ring Racer Ahrweiler district administration had already granted at the beginning of October. Originally the car had to go to the opening of the amusement park on the ring already in operation four years ago. But the approval dragged on, which justified the district administration about missing documents and once with high security requirements.


Even with all of this said, I will believe it when I see riders boarding a train.

^^Totally forgot about OR!! I think Scenic World gave up on it.


I e-mailed Scenic World about Orphan Rocker back in April and here is their full response:


Hello Jack,


Thank you for your enquiry on the Orphan Rocker.


The Orphan Rocker has never been open to the public. Construction began in the late 80’s, it was designed and built on site making it an interesting yet challenging project. It needs to comply with the Australian Standard AS3533 which was being developed on as we developed the ride, consequently modifications to the ride were required once it was nearly complete. Due to other developments occurring site work on the Orphan Rocker stopped in about 1996.


At this current point in time the Orphan Rocker is part of the long term Strategic Plan for the business, but no date has been set for its redevelopment.


I hope that this information has answered your questions.


Kind Regards,


Kathleen Munro
