On the 09th July 2022, Familypark located in the province of Burgenland, successfully opened “Biberburg”, Austria’s highest Flume Ride.

Biberburg” translated “Beaver Castle”, is the park’s new major attraction taking riders on a four minutes long, adventurous and unique family-friendly adventure. This beautifully themed water ride was built on the former area of the petting zoo and covers an area of almost 5’000 square meters.

Leaving the station in tree trunk themed state-of-the-art 8-passenger boats, riders can prepare for a splashy and fun filled experience on the 325 meters long water ride.

After the first drop right out of the station, riders get to enjoy a nicely themed floating section before arriving at a dead-end fast-moving platform which changes the floating direction of the boat from forwards to backwards. The boats then drop backwards into the next floating section, making their way to the highlight of the ride, a 17 meters high vertical lift. The lift takes the boats right to the top while revealing stunning views over the park. On top of the lift, the boats are back in their forward position, before whizzing down the drop reaching top speeds of approx. 65 km/h. Austria’s highest drop on a Flume Ride is followed by a camel back hump before experiencing an impressive splash.

Intamin congratulates Familypark on their new attraction and expresses its gratitude for the cooperation.
