Wooden rollercoasters are considered to be wild, thrilling and nostalgic. But even today, new rides are installed.

To celebrate the 100th birthday of the oldest rollercoaster in Europe that still exists, Up & Down presents every ride installation during the modern era of the wooden rollercoaster in Europe up to the present day and provides insights into the technical development of this ride type.

Additionally, this book includes portraits of the people and companies involved in the construction of those imposing structures.

Packed with colour photographs of every surviving wooden rollercoaster in Europe, along with the stories of their development and operation, this large book is the ultimate reference source for wooden rollercoasters in Europe.
