Product Highlights


The Mountain Coaster – launched in Belfast in July 2021

A unique monorail system and unrivalled riding dynamics is the trademark of the Mountain Coaster. Its sophisticated build makes it particularly cost effective and the track design is customised to individual conditions on site and customers wishes. Photo points provide guests with pictures and can be a lucrative source of income for operators. The individual toboggans are light weight permitting many transport solutions, even using existing infrastructure. The Mountain Coaster would be an exciting addition to any recreation or tourism facility such as forest parks, wildlife parks or zoos and can be fully customised to customer’s wishes. A thrilling ride for the whole family and a commercially viable proposition for year-round tourism, with a fast ROI.

The Tower and other Family Rides

Perfect for limited space, the Sunkid Tower is a family ride and lookout tower in one! With interactive controls, seat units are easily pulled up by rope, even by young children, as the Sunkid Tower itself slowly rotates around its own axis. Passengers observe the world around them from a 360-degree perspective at a height of just over 9 meters. Each Tower has a capacity of up to 320 persons per hour (4 seat units with 2 people each) with a 3-tower version available for up to 960 persons/hour. It boasts a low space demand with the 3-tower version possible on only 144m2. It is indoor and outdoor capable, and themes are fully customisable (design, light and sound effects).  So, give your visitors a whole new perspective with these beautifully crafted and fully interactive Towers.


Other family rides, like the nearly 300 times sold Skydive ropeway ride, the “jumping boat ride” Nautic Jet, or the Loopster where passengers can do 360 degrees vertical rotations: a great range of well-established attractions add to the complete offering of high-quality family rides by Sunkid.
