Geisterbahn used to be Germany's largest travelling ghost train, and permanently operates at Skyline Park since 2019. It has a facade of 36 meters wide and spans 3 floors.
It was built in 1979 by Mack Rides and since 1980 operated on the German funfair under the name Geisterschlange (Ghost Snake), where it was owned by the Lehmann family. The Lehmanns owned a total of 4 ghost trains throughout the generations. Geisterschlange was sold to Skyline Park, where it opened in 2019 under the name Geisterbahn (Ghost Train).
Throughout 2021 and 2022, the ride was revised to incorporate a story featuring explorers leading guests through the ride. New animatronics were added by the German company Hüttinger Animatronics. Some old animatronics, like the giant gorilla outside, were revised by Hüttinger and others completely replaced. Additionally, a soundtrack was composed by IMAscore.
Before operating at Skyline Park, Geisterbahn made at least one, but perhaps more appearances during the 'Horror Nights' in Europa-Park.
