Rodelban (German rodelbahn) - "summer sled", which is a symbiosis of a bobsled sled and a rail "roller coaster".
In the mountain resort of Rosa Khutor, rodelban works all year round, perhaps this is what gives it an advantage over other attractions.
Rodelban on Rosa Khutor is a dynamic open-air attraction, where anyone can ride and experience the thrill.
In rodelban, for downhill, the natural existing height difference of the terrain is also used. The descent is carried out in a "sleigh" on laid rails, with simultaneous overcoming of rings-turns at a speed of up to 40 km/h. The design feature of the rodelban is that it simulates a luge or bobsleigh track, in relation to all-season operating conditions.
During the descent on the Rosa Khutor rodelban, beautiful panoramic views are opened.
Riding takes place in a two-person rodelban sled (you can ride both together and one at a time), equipped with a manual brake, speed and approach control, automatic ascent to the starting point.
A trip on a rail track involves passing 3 rings-turns, while the sled slides along the rails at a speed of up to 40 kilometers per hour. For those guests who find this speed too fast, you can press the brake and, thereby, suspend the movement of the rodelban sleigh.
