Huracan is a steel roller coaster at Belantis amusement park in Leipzig, Germany. Huracan is one of two Gerstlauer Euro-Fighter model roller coasters in Germany, the other being Fluch von Novgorod.
Huracan was originally intended to be delivered to the proposed F1-X Dubai amusement park in Dubai, but the Financial crisis of 2007–08 and the Great Recession led to the cancellation of the coaster’s installation in Dubai. Instead, the coaster was acquired by Belantis amusement park for €5,000,000 and the coaster was opened on 26 June 2010. Nikolaus Job, the CEO of Belantis has stated he expected the installation of Huracan would lead to a 10 to 15 percent growth in visitor volume.
