Wow… that coaster is only 5.8ft tall? That’s legitimately about the same height as I am barefoot… (according to Google, 5.8ft is a little below 1.77m, or about 5’9.5”; my exact height). Being the same height barefoot as a Gerstlauer Kiddy Racer is certainly an interesting enthusiast milestone, if nothing else…I'm pretty sure Gerstlauer's Kiddy Racer is smaller than that. It's higher and a lot more interesting, as well.

I wonder what speed the car reaches from the top of its lift hill? I can’t imagine it would be fast…
I’ll admit that I can’t even begin to fathom how tiny these things look in person… even pretty small-looking things like Dino Chase at Paultons (Zierer Tivoli Small) are actually surprisingly substantial in person!
As for the record-breaking Gerst; I reckon that it could be Glenwood Caverns. Gerst said that it was getting announced at some point in the summer, and Glenwood Caverns would certainly satisfy the brief of a “challenging location”. I’m excited; Gerstlauer said it was one of their largest projects ever!
