Wiegand Summer Toboggan Run

The classic made of stainless steel

The classic summer toboggan run in flume form, also called the trough or channel run colloquially, is “the mother” of all our toboggan runs and enthuses millions of tobogganists worldwide of all age groups again and again.

In the summer toboggan run the tobogganer is also actively integrated in the ride experience, as they determine their driving style and the duration of their downhill run themself.

The experience

  • tobogganing jamboree alone or as a pair in comfortable toboggan
  • speeds up to 40 km/h
  • sporty toboggan position during speedy ride through the steep curves
  • individual speed control by using the break lever

Tobogganing without ice and snow

Our flume toboggan

The rapid ride through steep curves, small jumps, curved and straight segments of the ground level track produces similar adrenalin-charged emotions to the tour through the winter sports ice channel of bob sport.

Bridges and roundabouts make the action perfect. Families, senior citizens with their grandchildren, company and school trippers love the ultimate thrill.
Take a test run – you will also be thrilled!

Frequently asked questions:

On the Wiegand Summer Toboggan Run, the trough parts are laid in the ground, deep-drawn parts in the bends boost the fun for the visitor.
In wet conditions, the track can be operated under certain conditions after it is retrofitted with wet brake shoes.

The Alpine Coaster by Wiegand is a track-guided all-weather toboggan run that can be operated all year round. It can be elevated up to 5 m to compensate for any differences in terrain and offer the tobogganist a varied ride. It comes complete with numerous safety components.

Bridge and roundabout constructions are no problem with either type of track.

Each system is individually adapted to the respective terrain, so it is not possible to give figures at the moment. The price depends on a variety of factors, for example:

  • Are bridge constructions necessary?
  • Which uphill transport system will be used, which gradient will be overcome?

 

To give you a quotation suitable for your location, all we need is a map with contour lines or a google placemark.

Initial course designs are drafted on the basis of terrain maps and or terrain inspections In conjunction with our project managers. You also receive a corresponding price quotation. These track designs can be used for initial discussions with the local authorities.

In the further development of the project, the detailed planning, the final version of the track is projected directly in the terrain. During this detailed planning on site, you and our project manager will position the installation as best as possible in the terrain available. The marked course of the track must then be surveyed by a local surveyor. This survey then serves as the basis for the detailed planning and the production.

Once all the preliminary work has been completed and the required components have been produced, shipped and delivered on site, one or two experienced Wiegand fitters are sent to the construction site. The system is assembled under their guidance. The customer must provide at least 10 able and willing helpers for this work. This also reduces the basic assembly time and the assembly costs as well.

It is a good thing if the future operating personnel are already among the helpers. During this time, these persons have the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the assembly and functioning of the toboggan run.

After completion of the assembly work, the future operating personnel are trained by our fitters. In this context, the operator also receives an operating and maintenance manual for the system, which contains all information on operation and necessary maintenance work and intervals.

Our customers are not left alone even after successful commissioning: our service department also offers inspections incl. further consultations if required.

If we have not answered all your questions,

then simply write to us and we will get back to you.
