Alpine Coaster completed in Portugal and Serbia -


Order from Azerbaijan

End of 2012, we received a request from the public company "Ski Resorts of Serbia" for two Alpine Coaster in the ski resorts Kopaonik and Zlatibor-Tornik.

After a very sophisticated tender we got the contract for both facilities in the summer of 2013.

The Kopaonik National Park is located in 1056 m to 2017 m altitude and is a perfectly developed ski resort in the heart of Serbia. A total of 21 lifts, of which 12 chair lifts, 9 drag or platter lifts and 3 conveyor belts are available to the guests in the winter.

In order to make the area interesting even in summer for visitors, the customer has opted for our Alpine Coaster. In September of last year, about 580 m long course was accepted by German TUEV.

About 200 km away the second Serbian Alpine Coaster in was built in the ski resort Zlatibor Tornik in the summer of this year. In addition to a a chairlift you will find there still two drag lifts and conveyor belts.
Mid-August, the nearly identical system was successfully tested and approved by German TUEV and released to operate.

Meanwhile, Portugal is not a blank space on our reference map.

In addition to numerous other activities such as ziplining, paintball, canyoning, Segway and off-road tours, canoeing and paddle boating, the Alpine Coaster offers the active users thrills and spills.
The assembly was not always easy, but the device
