Named after the Zugspitze cable car, its Munich variant doesn't master a comparable elevation gain, but instead of that goes way faster.
The name of the Münchner Zugspitzbahn refers to the Zugspitze Railway, which was opened in 1930, six years before its Munich counterpart was built. This makes it the oldest thrill ride at the Oktoberfest. The Zugspitzbahn is a very fast variant of the classic caterpillar ride with swinging cars and steep hills. The extraordinarily decorated ride is the oldest, still travelling one of its kind and even older than the carousels at the Oide Wiesn.
