Booster is an amusement ride made by Fabbri.

It is a pendulum ride, similar to the later Speed by KMG (which, due to its similarity to the Fabbri ride, is often referred to as the KMG Booster).[citation needed].

There is another ride from the Italian company, Zamperla. Zamperla made a booster like ride called Turbo Force made in 2001.[citation needed]
