But for thrill-seekers and adrenaline junkies, Roller is one attraction stands out as an absolute must-do! The massive Roller coaster at Hanuman World is a must do activity while being on vacation on the sunny island.

Located within the Hanuman World outdoor adventure park, the Roller is a jaw-dropping steel coaster that provides a wildly exhilarating ride unlike anything else on the island of Phuket.

The Roller is a multi-inversion zip-line  coaster, meaning it features multiple complete upside-down revolutions and gut-wrenching moments of hang-time. It packs an incredible seven inversions into its compact layout, including a dizzying inline twist, an Immelmann loop, a diving loop, and a zero-g roll. You’ll be flipped, whipped, and flung in every direction imaginable.

In addition to the intense inversions, the Roller includes several ferocious airtime hills that will momentarily have you feeling weightless as you soar over the crests. The coaster’s snaking circuit also features high-banked curves, a dark tunnel section, and rapid transitions that will toss you from side to side.

By the time the 1 minute and 20 second ride concludes, you’ll be an breathless, giddy mess – with your adrenaline levels peaked and an ear-to-ear grin plastered across your face. It’s an incredibly smooth, beautifully-crafted coaster experience from start to finish.

The Coaster’s Storied History The thrilling Roller at Hanuman World actually has an interesting backstory and history. When it first opened in 2011, it was originally known as the “Zinga” and was located at a park called TwinOx Mega Parks in Pattaya, Thailand.

Swiss coaster manufacturers ABC Rides designed and built the coaster, utilizing their innovative river rapid ride system technology. The Zinga was the first major coaster installation for the still relatively new ABC Rides company at the time.
