europe's only twin-track racing coaster

Grand National

Designed for those who like their thrills with a competitive edge, the Grand National is Europe’s only twin-track racing coaster. The two racing trains leave the station at the same time, on a track which is a Mobius loop, then it’s a race to the finish! Expect high speeds and high thrills, especially with its double-dip on the first drop. 

The ride was designed by Charles Paige in 1935, and the art deco-inspired ride station was designed by Joseph Emberton who also designed the Casino Building.
