Found this on usedrides...

Be sure to look at all the photos as it also shows racking of the ride.

Very creative twist on an old ride. Sure hate to move it though.

Very cool

With those high back jack stands and track track already built on the trailer that is a BIG plus. The original was all separate pieces and built on the ground nothing trailer mounted. and it was heavy.

to me, it looks like a factory upgrade. wonder what year it was made.

Yes this would be way easier to setup/tear down. I seen a old ground mount getting torn down in Mexico a few years back. took them 2 days in the Mexican heat.

Yep, the set-up/tear down looks like it would be much better than the old ones.

Nice looking ride, like the pool of water in the middle with the water fountains.

saw that piece on another site. looks to be a neat piece to ride. always liked riding AofA's swiss bobs. it was a fast piece. maybe someone/manufacturer will come back out with a similar piece that is easier to move and rack

To me, it looks a little smaller than a Kurve/Swiss Bobs. It might be the angle of the photo though. Still even if it is slightly smaller, it's good to see it back out again in a new version.

It's a European ride called Hollentaxi. It doesn't seem as fast or as banked as a Bayern Kurve.
