This is a quasi "mirror-image" of the transportable "Dreier Looping". The "Mindbender" features two more meters in height, some more meters in tracklenght and does not use a second lift hill. The coaster started operation in 1985 and is completely enclosed, because the amusement park is part of a giant shopping mall. The trains are one-of-a-kind, very safe, and consist of three coupled, twinaxled leading cars.
