Title: BACKBONE RAIL FOR A ROLLER COASTER AND ROLLER COASTER ARRANGEMENT
Abstract:
The invention relates to a backbone rail (1) for a roller coaster, comprising two rail pipes (2, 4) designed for vehicles to travel upon, and at least one, particularly main load-bearing backbone pipe (6) not designed for vehicles to travel on, whose second moment of area is greater than the second moment of area of the rail pipes (2, 4), wherein rail pipes (2, 4) and backbone pipe (6) are connected to each other section- by-section by means of stiffening bulkheads (10), whereby at least one bulkhead (10) has the following features: A transverse cross member (8), which extends in the orthogonal direction and connects the rail pipes (2, 4) with each other, and bulkhead plates (12, 14), connecting at least one rail pipe (2, 4) with the backbone pipe (6), wherein at least one bulkhead plate (12, 14) is designed as a longitudinal bulkhead plate, whose main plane of extension extends perpendicular to the bulk- head plane, and which is attached to the backbone pipe (6) in such a way that it runs tangentially into the backbone pipe (6). In addition, the invention relates to a roller coaster arrangement with such a backbone rail.
