KALEIDOSCOPE<br />

THEME „HALLOWEEN”<br />

BOOK<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

The Leipzig Kleinmessen<br />

events, which<br />

have been held since<br />

1907, rank among the<br />

oldest German Volksfest<br />

events. Even in the 19 th<br />

century, the Leipzig<br />

Trade Fairs were characterised<br />

by an ever increasing<br />

number of fairground<br />

attractions.<br />

Gabriele Klunkert’s now<br />

published dissertation<br />

The Halloween festival famously<br />

celebrated in the USA<br />

has also become increasingly<br />

popular in Europe over the<br />

past years – and is now also<br />

a frequent theme on the fairgrounds.<br />

The showmen at the fair held in<br />

the Belgian city of Liège last<br />

Autumn seized upon Halloween<br />

as a welcome occasion<br />

to entice visitors with specially decorated attractions<br />

and special initiatives. Almost all attractions<br />

featured Halloween decorative elements,<br />

such as spiders, ghosts, broomsticks<br />

and pumpkins. On the main day (November 2 nd )<br />

wizards and magicians strolled across the fairground,<br />

and little presents were distributed to<br />

the youngest visitors. The creepy Halloween setting<br />

was further enhanced by the fantastic location<br />

of the Liège fair, where the showman operations<br />

are built up in close proximity to each other<br />

beneath the many trees along the 1.5 kilometre<br />

Boulevard d'Avroy. Thanks to these special<br />

Halloween events, the six-week event was well<br />

attended right up until its closing day. ■<br />

“Exhibitions and Public<br />

Entertainment at the<br />

Leipzig Messen in the 19 th<br />

century – a survey of economic<br />

and social history”,<br />

is the first systematic<br />

record of almost all the exhibitions<br />

held at a fair town<br />

for the entire 19 th century.<br />

For this dissertation, the<br />

author analysed files covering<br />

some 8,300 individual<br />

fairground concessions,<br />

coming across many<br />

showman name. The book<br />

is published by the Cuvillier<br />

Verlag, 576 pages, with<br />

images and a showman<br />

INAPPOPRIATE<br />

Norman Vogt<br />

During a visit to the fair in<br />

Stiring Wendel / France<br />

(20 kilometers from Germany)<br />

we discovered a<br />

Hook-A-Duck where the<br />

“first prize” was living fish,<br />

which eked out a living in a<br />

small plastic aquarium just<br />

half the size of a shoe box,<br />

with no regard to prevailing<br />

temperatures. The aquarium<br />

is “enhanced” by a little<br />

plastic palm tree, which is<br />

apparently meant to create<br />

a “nice view” for these poor<br />

creatures to enjoy. This was thought absolutely<br />

inappropriate, even by visitors to the fair in Stiring-Wendel,<br />

who stood in front of the little container<br />

shaking their heads, feeling pity for the unfortunate<br />

little creatures. In this case, the first<br />

prize is a guaranteed 'dud'!<br />

Since the season of 2010, the showman family<br />

Löffelhardt has operated its “Aviator”. The<br />

family ride built by the Fähtz firm has thereby<br />

adopted a very successful theme, and is now<br />

presented in its third design. Originally, the attraction<br />

went into operation many years ago as<br />

the “Hollywood Star”, and was last operated by<br />

Schaak under the name of “Stardust”. ■<br />

For the last Dürkheim<br />

Wurstmarkt, Anja<br />

Ruppert-Keller came<br />

up with a clever feature:<br />

a ride vehicle from her<br />

Dietz ride was converted<br />

into the “Wurstmarkt<br />

car”. The beautiful Mercedes<br />

convertible was<br />

equipped with the typical<br />

symbols of the largest<br />

wine festival in the<br />

world, such as the characteristic<br />

“Dubbeglas”<br />

glass, the Ferris Wheel,<br />

the names or logos of<br />

the wine producers,<br />

and the origin of the<br />

wines or grapes. ■<br />

NEW PRODUCTS<br />

Zena Roberto’s<br />

“Aviator”<br />

Zena Roberto’s “Aviator” is<br />

the only “Baby Aviator” example<br />

still touring throughout<br />

Italy. This unusual track<br />

ride was built by Technical<br />

<strong>Park</strong>, who also manufactured<br />

a number of stationary park<br />

versions of this ride type.<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Norman Vogt<br />

Aviator<br />

Leonardo DiCaprio and Cate Blanchette, which<br />

was a huge success in the box office in 2004,<br />

and presented the life of pioneer aviator Howard<br />

Hughes (1905 to 1976).<br />

Zena Roberto<br />

The five aeroplanes, fixed to<br />

a guide track on their undercarriages,<br />

accommodate a<br />

total of 20 people (4 people per<br />

plane). The “Aviator” ride is<br />

suitable for both children and<br />

adults. To start off, the complete<br />

aeroplane group is taken<br />

up to the highest point of the<br />

track, before the ride speedily<br />

drops down. On the curves, the<br />

aeroplanes swing outwards<br />

providing a lot of fun to the passengers.<br />

The gondola train is<br />

powered by several motors, located<br />

between the individual<br />

gondolas.<br />

The train travels around the<br />

track a couple of times before<br />

returning to the station platform<br />

- and terra firma. The design of<br />

the ride by the Turin showman<br />

Zena Roberto is based on the<br />

“Aviator” movie, starring<br />

NEW PRODUCTS<br />

The ride from<br />

different perspectives<br />

Transport requires<br />

two centre<br />

trailers, one of<br />

which is also<br />

used as the station,<br />

while the<br />

paybox is loaded<br />

on a separate<br />

trailer. The “Aviator”<br />

has ground<br />

measurements of 20 x 18 metres, and is 7<br />

metres high. Zena Roberto’s “Aviator” is<br />

mainly presented at Lunaparks in the north<br />

of Italy, its tour schedule includes, among<br />

other venues, Arona, Pavia, Andorra, Novi<br />

Ligure, Vigevano, Legnano, Savona and<br />

Turin.<br />

PREMIÈRE<br />

The huge Funhouse<br />

“España” from Valeriano<br />

Diana<br />

A new Walkthrough construction<br />

has turned out to be<br />

the hit on the fairgrounds in<br />

Northern Italy – namely, the<br />

brand new XXL-sized Funhouse<br />

“España” that the Italian<br />

Royal <strong>Park</strong> firm from Spilamberto<br />

has built for Valeriano<br />

Diana from Meleo. In addition<br />

to its extra large size<br />

and unusual theme, the two<br />

centre trailers - both being<br />

assembled into the construction<br />

at an angle to the rear<br />

rather than in a straight line<br />

with the fairground course –<br />

are another special feature of<br />

the attraction, making it look<br />

even larger.<br />

Text & Photos: Norman Vogt<br />

Diana (l) and Angelo Diana<br />

España<br />

The measurements speak for themselves: the “España”<br />

has three levels, a total front length of 27 metres,<br />

is 11 metres high and 6 metres deep and has a<br />

course length of more than 300 metres – that’s “jumbo<br />

sized” without any doubt! The novelty<br />

from Valeriano Diana celebrated<br />

its successful première at the<br />

Luna <strong>Park</strong> in Viareggio (Tuscany),<br />

where it was not only admired by the public but also<br />

by an extraordinarily large number of colleagues, who<br />

came just to look over the attraction. Due to the high<br />

visitor attendance, the investment made by the showman,<br />

who is also the owner of two other Funhouses,<br />

has already paid off. The première in Viareggio was<br />

followed by events in Lucca, Lissone and Legnano. At<br />

the end of, and as the highlight of this season, the attraction<br />

will be presented in Genoa, where one of the<br />

PREMIÈRE<br />

Spanish love of<br />

life and traditions are<br />

depicted on the façade of<br />

the Walkthrough construction<br />

largest Italian fair events will open its gates on December<br />

4 th . In addition to the slanted arrangement of<br />

the attraction, the suspension bridges on the third level<br />

and the wobbling steps provide for an unusual visual<br />

appearance of this construction. The countless<br />

obstacles along the interior and the exterior course, offering<br />

a mixture of proven and popular elements, such<br />

as rolling barrels, various kinds of moving floors, a<br />

glass labyrinth, sliding poles, vibrating floors, conveyor<br />

belts, compressed air jets and folding staircases,<br />

leave the visitors hardly any time to breathe. The owner<br />

is particularly proud of the laser tunnel, as well as<br />

The laser tunnel in the<br />

inside area of the “España”<br />

PREMIERE<br />

View from the side<br />

at the upper level<br />

Clearly noticeable: the two<br />

centre trailers of the attraction<br />

placed at an angle<br />

the spiral slide, which – as an exceptionally novel feature<br />

- can turn itself around by way of an electronic control<br />

system. Water is also generously dispersed along<br />

a foggy section of the course. With the aid of a special<br />

PLC system many of the effects can be meticulously<br />

controlled, and thereby perfectly fine-tuned to the respective<br />

visitor groups from the paybox by the operator.<br />

The construction is monitored by a modern camera<br />

system. The design of the huge front is dedicated<br />

to Spanish customs and traditions, including scenes<br />

from the controversial topic of the corrida de toros, or<br />

“bullfighting”. Anyway, the design with pictures of<br />

proud toreros fighting in the bullring, the raging crowd<br />

The spiral slide turning<br />

around itself<br />

or senoritas clad in magnificent dresses, the design<br />

has been perfectly matched to the theme “Spain”.<br />

Power-saving LED lighting as well as spotlights in the<br />

Spanish national colours of red and yellow provide the<br />

perfect illumination for the construction after sundown.<br />

Even the music matches the short trip to Spain on the<br />

fairground, with vivacious Spanish folk music being<br />

played over the loudspeakers, which also entertains<br />

the public in front of the attraction. Every now and then,<br />

a loud “Viva España” ” can be heard from the loudspeakers<br />

with the individual letters of the name sign<br />

“dancing” to the rhythm. “Olé!”<br />

SPECIAL<br />

Scenes from the <strong>Dult</strong> 2010<br />

in <strong>Salzburg</strong><br />

As was the case last year, the<br />

winter months are an ideal opportunity<br />

to publish reports and<br />

– more importantly still – photos<br />

concerning highly prominent<br />

Volksfest events in Europe.<br />

This time, the focus will be<br />

on selected events in France,<br />

Spain and Italy – and the opener<br />

is a portrait of the largest Volksfest<br />

in Western Austria, the<br />

<strong>Salzburg</strong> <strong>Dult</strong>, with a tradition<br />

stretching back more than 900<br />

years.<br />

years. This time the Austrian<br />

showmen were joined by colleagues<br />

from Germany and<br />

Holland, who brought their attractions<br />

to <strong>Salzburg</strong>. In<br />

Since the 1970 s , the nine-day event has been held 2010, it was possible to engage a total of 97 attractions<br />

for the <strong>Dult</strong> – that was 25 up on the previous<br />

on the spacious exhibition grounds, both inside<br />

the exhibition halls and in the outside area, and always<br />

begins at Pentecost. After<br />

year. By the way, the event management’s motto for<br />

the <strong>Dult</strong> had seen some lacklustre<br />

years during the last decade,<br />

and there had even been signs of<br />

a creeping decline, there is now a<br />

noticeable upward trend. Contracting<br />

an exhibition team that<br />

tried out many new ideas was a<br />

decision that already paid off in<br />

2009, as it noticeably increased<br />

the number of international participants<br />

during the last two<br />

SPECIAL<br />

Appealing background<br />

setting for the “Black Hole”<br />

the <strong>Dult</strong> 2010 was “XXL”. “We have more operators<br />

than ever, including many new ride attractions which<br />

have never been presented in <strong>Salzburg</strong> before,” said<br />

<strong>Dult</strong> director Michaela Glinz at the press conference<br />

prior to the event. In 2010, there was a change of operator<br />

of the main gastronomic operation; in other<br />

words the beer hall located directly at the entrance<br />

to the fairground. While this important <strong>Dult</strong> fixture<br />

was operated by a Munich firm in 2009, this year’s<br />

operator was the “Team Kongress Gastronomie<br />

<strong>Salzburg</strong>”. Under the management of its General<br />

Manager, Josef Voithofer, it was not only in charge of<br />

the gastronomy in the large “Stieglhalle” but also of<br />

the new “<strong>Dult</strong>stadl” in hall 7. While the traditionalists<br />

among the visitors got their money’s worth of traditional<br />

music, cold Stiegl beer and culinary delicacies<br />

in the Stieglhalle, the programme in the “<strong>Dult</strong>stadl”<br />

was focused more on young people, offering interactive<br />

events, such as a song contest, and Austrian<br />

pop and karaoke competitions. By the way, the<br />

grounds, the entrance<br />

with automatic visitor logging<br />

mechanism, and the top attraction<br />

SPECIAL<br />

Free fall experience<br />

for younger visitors in<br />

Stampfer’s “Drop Zone”-Tower<br />

“Breakdance” (Rüdiger),<br />

“Sombrero” (Wiesbauer) and<br />

“Round Up” (Gschwandtner)<br />

entrance to the <strong>Dult</strong> (open daily from 10 a.m. to midnight)<br />

is free – and accessible only through the main<br />

entrance to the exhibition grounds. It is a smart factor<br />

that one of the turnstiles at the entrance registers<br />

the actual visitor numbers to the fairground – this<br />

time precisely 124,700 visitors were registered between<br />

May 22 nd and May 30 th - 20,000 visitors up on<br />

the previous year.<br />

The opening day was very well attended. This may<br />

well have also been due to the great procession,<br />

featuring many groups and 50 horses proceeding<br />

from the city centre (Residenzplatz) to the exhibition<br />

grounds, and which was enjoyed by many a visitor.<br />

From there on it was just “have fun”! Strolling across<br />

the <strong>Dult</strong> was quite an enjoyable experience and held<br />

many surprises for the visitors, as due to the combi-<br />

nation of the open air fairground and the roofed-over<br />

exhibition halls they could not take in all the attractions<br />

offered in just one glance. In the first “open air”<br />

area, located just beyond the aforementioned Stiegl<br />

beer hall, visitors were enticed by the “Breakdance”<br />

(Rüdiger), the Ejector Seat “Hot Shot” (Dölle), “Sombrero”<br />

(Wiesbauer), “Round Up” (Gschwandtner),<br />

“Alpenrausch” (M. Kollmann), Rutsche (Göbel), Simulator<br />

(Falthauser), “Kamikaze” (Strassmeier),<br />

“Drachenpalast” (Medwed) and the “Geisterspuk”<br />

(Bachmaier). Next followed the hall with kiddie rides,<br />

most of which were from the showman Alfred Winkler,<br />

who presented as many as six kiddie attractions,<br />

including the “Taga-J”, a pony ride, the<br />

Bungee-Trampoline and “Samba-Balloon”. These<br />

were joined by the “Crazy Boat” and the “Snow Convoy”<br />

from the Raab firm, as well as kiddie rides and<br />

from Bachmaier and Strassmaier’s<br />

a number of well-chosen<br />

concession stalls.<br />

At the end of the hall,<br />

visitors were able to<br />

catch the first glimpse<br />

of the main fairground<br />

through the huge glass<br />

façade, with the<br />

“Bellevue” Ferris<br />

Wheel from the Bruch<br />

firm forming the visual<br />

“centrepiece” (now for<br />

the second time). On<br />

this occasion, the fairground accommodated the two<br />

and “Black Hole” (Schierenbeck), as well as the ride<br />

attractions “No Limit” (Thurner), “Drop Zone”, and<br />

“Crazy Wave” (Stampfer), Autodrom (Gschwandtner)<br />

“Petersburger Schlittenfahrt” (Bachmaier), the<br />

“Booster” and the “Flipper” (Rüdiger).<br />

The Rüdiger family from Graz, which has participated<br />

in the event since the very first <strong>Dult</strong>, built up four<br />

large attractions this time. “The <strong>Dult</strong> is a fixture in our<br />

tour schedule, and we are happy to be approved to<br />

the event every year,” says Helmuth Rüdiger. Next<br />

was for the first time a new festival thoroughfare,<br />

though, as a new hall is being constructed. In any<br />

case, this new section without doubt livened up the<br />

2010 event. This new thoroughfare was occupied by<br />

special crowd pullers, such as the go-kart track<br />

and on Whit Monday, the Family Day on Tuesday,<br />

presented by multiple award-winning Christian<br />

Czech and his team. Moreover, the “Line Dance<br />

Convention” attracting more than 2,000 dancers and<br />

visitors, was held on the exhibition grounds during<br />

the last two opening days, attracting additional visitor<br />

attendance. By the way, a coupon on the <strong>Dult</strong> flyer<br />

provided the visitors with free use of the <strong>Salzburg</strong><br />

city bus services.<br />

At the end of the event, the General Manager of the<br />

Messezentrum, Henrik Häcker, provided a positive<br />

review of the fair: “The <strong>Dult</strong> 2010 was a big success!”<br />

And then on behalf of the event management,<br />

Michaela Glinz added: “Visitor attendance was particularly<br />

overwhelming at Pentecost. On the opening<br />

day there were already twice as many visitors as last<br />

year.” Moreover, much to the delight of the beer tent<br />

operator Josef Voithofer, 10,000 grilled chickens and<br />

25,000 half-litres of beer were served.<br />

The overall success was due not least to the exhibition<br />

team’s professional marketing which included,<br />

among other strategies, the exemplary website<br />

www.dult.at. The <strong>Salzburg</strong> <strong>Dult</strong> 2011 will be held from<br />

Juny 11 th to 19 th .<br />

OLDIE<br />

The Schmetterlingsbahn<br />

“Die goldenen 50er”<br />

from the Stoll family<br />

After a thorough restoration<br />

and a number of test runs during<br />

spring, the Stoll family<br />

from Erfurt presented its<br />

completed, newly purchased<br />

Schmetterlingsbahn, or Butterfly<br />

Ride, “Die goldenen<br />

50er” at the autumn market in<br />

Nordhausen. The name of the<br />

ride is derived from 1955 –<br />

the year it was built.<br />

The Golden 50’s<br />

Ivonne and Torsten Stoll<br />

Built by the Gundelwein firm of Wutha near<br />

Eisenach, the small Switchback was toured<br />

for more than 40 years before being decommissioned<br />

in the late 1990s. Two years ago, Jürgen<br />

Stoll purchased the ride from the showman<br />

Camillo Franzelius from Schkeuditz, who had<br />

taken it over from his brother and had eventually<br />

put it into storage on his property. After the purchase,<br />

the ride was transported to Erfurt and unloaded.<br />

Originally, the Stoll family had planned<br />

to merely preserve its new acquisition and repair<br />

and restore only the bare necessities.<br />

The Ride was Completely Renovated<br />

However, when the ride was built up in the hall,<br />

they found that it was largely built out of wood,<br />

had badly suffered from the ravages of time. Af-<br />

they decided in<br />

favour of a complete<br />

restoration and to<br />

equip the ride with<br />

the best available<br />

technology. Having<br />

dismantled the attraction, Jürgen Stoll and his<br />

son Torsten immediately began, in the winter of<br />

2008, to create a new base out of heat-immersion-tempered<br />

galvanised steel in the winter of<br />

2008. The axle of the small centre trailer was removed<br />

and replaced by rollers so that it could<br />

be transported on the newly built baggage van.<br />

Next, the platforms were rebuilt. The frames<br />

were also built out of heat-tempered galvanised<br />

steel and fitted with high-quality steel sheeting<br />

afterwards. Moreover, new floor segments and<br />

■ 2 transport vehicles<br />

(1 baggage van + paybox)<br />

The paybox comes from a<br />

“Polyp” ride and was newly furbished<br />

stairs were built during the last<br />

two winters. The newly built<br />

and padded gondolas were<br />

equipped with pneumatic tyres<br />

and the lighting system and the<br />

electrical equipment were<br />

completely renewed, and the<br />

drive system was modernised.<br />

The worn out slip ring motor<br />

was removed and replaced by<br />

a cage motor. In addition, the<br />

water starter was replaced by<br />

a frequency converter for continuous<br />

control of the motor rotational<br />

speed with a joystick during both forward<br />

and reverse rides. The modern drive with overhauled<br />

gears guarantees a smooth run with a<br />

high initial torque. Moreover, new light strips for<br />

the arms and a high-quality steel crown were<br />

built for the centre of the ride and equipped with<br />

a LED-lighting system. Finally, the old series<br />

lamps were removed from the light grid rings and<br />

replaced by neon clefs and stars.<br />

The Paybox stems from a “Polyp“<br />

By the way, the paybox comes from the former<br />

“Polyp” ride from Dieter Rausch. It was equipped<br />

with a new roof and modern interior furnishing.<br />

Additionally, the Stoll family equipped the ride<br />

with a new roof and a centrepiece canvas. The<br />

restored and carefully modernised Schmetterlingsbahn<br />

celebrated its première at the Volksfest<br />

in Nordhausen, where the nostalgic-looking<br />

ride roused pleasant childhood memories in<br />

many older visitors.<br />

STUTTGART<br />

Ferris Wheel and “Airwolf”<br />

at the Cannstatter Volksfest<br />

Text:<br />

Photos:<br />

Ralf Schmitt<br />

Ralf Schmitt, Norman Vogt<br />

Wasen highlights<br />

for years: “Transformer” and<br />

“Star Flyer”<br />

Due to the weather, the first days of the Cannstatt<br />

Wasen (September 24 th to October 10 th 2010) fell far<br />

short of expectations. However, during the second<br />

week (and especially the final weekend), autumn<br />

presented itself to its very best, so that by the conclusion<br />

of the event some 3.8 million visitors had<br />

provided satisfactory financial results.<br />

Due to the 98 th "Landwirtschaftliches Hauptfest" agricultural<br />

festival also being held on the Wasen fairground<br />

during the first opening week of the Volksfest,<br />

the showmen moved closer together again – and the<br />

public was presented an altogether attractive fairground.<br />

There were no striking layout mistakes or inconsistencies<br />

this time, as has been the case in the<br />

past, particularly in the section behind the fruit column<br />

(this area was not available this time due to the agricultural<br />

festival). While the Ferris Wheel from the<br />

Hablützel & Bruch AG made its first-time appearance<br />

at the Cannstatt Wasen, replacing the Steiger-Ferris<br />

Wheel that had been presented at the event for<br />

decades, was “responded to” by the Steiger OHG by<br />

taking out an advertisement in the “Cannstatter Volksfestzeitung”<br />

(free-of-charge fairground newspaper),<br />

sending a friendly though perhaps somewhat smug<br />

message of greeting to Swabia, expressing “...best<br />

wishes from the world’s largest transportable Ferris<br />

Wheel from Oldenburg”. The large beer tents had been<br />

further equipped with additional gardens, galleries<br />

and a sometimes elaborate decoration and accessories.<br />

“With the tents we’ve made it into the Champions<br />

League,” said the speaker for beer tent operators,<br />

Werner Klauss, qualifying his statement “but the<br />

turnover has only reached European League status.”<br />

Many a visitor missed the large Almhüttendorf (Renol-<br />

34


di), merely a smaller version of which was built up on<br />

another site this year. And the entrance area (at the<br />

bric-a-brac market) gave rise to many a dismayed<br />

frown, as the magnificent wooden entrance gate had<br />

disappeared. It was replaced by a simple garland of<br />

pennants, which might have been suitable for a village<br />

fête, but by no means for the largest showman festival<br />

in the world! There were rumours among the showmen<br />

that this – just as may have been the case with the<br />

widening of the footpaths on the bric-a-brac market –<br />

was the organiser’s short-term reaction to the previous<br />

tragic incidents at the love parade in Duisburg. Be that<br />

as it may, this was visual evidence of inadequacy. It<br />

would be interesting to know the legal basis on which<br />

the security personnel at the entrances barred visitors<br />

(even harmless senior citizens) from taking even the<br />

smallest of plastic water bottles with them into the fairground.<br />

Could they really pose a threat? Negative<br />

repercussions resulting from the demonstrations<br />

protesting the “Stuttgart 21” urban project, focused<br />

primarily on the Stuttgart Central Railway Station,<br />

which gradually approached a climax at the time of the<br />

Volksfest, affected the event only marginally; a beer<br />

tent operator, for example, explicitly banned the shrillsounding<br />

whistles that had characterised the protests<br />

inside the tent. On a more positive note, the police announced<br />

that the number of crimes committed at the<br />

Volksfest had decreased. After the finale, Andreas<br />

Kroll, General Manager at the in.Stuttgart summed up<br />

the event: “The final opening weekend was one with<br />

the highest visitor attendance in the Wasen history. All<br />

in all, we registered 3.8 million visitors who celebrated<br />

on the Wasen fairground during the 17 days.” The<br />

showman spokesman Joachim Hohl also proffered his<br />

positive review: “Visitor attendance on the Family Days<br />

has increasingly improved from year to year. In particular,<br />

the second Family Day can be almost compared<br />

with a Saturday or a Sunday.”<br />

■<br />

The 98 th Landwirtschaftliches<br />

Hauptfest was also held on the<br />

Wasen fairground<br />

Banned from the beer tent:<br />

shrill-sounding whistles<br />

This year, not a feast for<br />

the eyes: the dreary entrance<br />

WINZERFEST ALZEY<br />

“Flipper” (Meeß) and<br />

“Golden Wheel” (Jost) in Alzey<br />

Text & Photos: Norman Vogt<br />

When the days gradually get shorter again, wine<br />

growers harvesting their grapes herald the autumn<br />

season. And once the grape harvest and the processing<br />

of the grapes are over, festivals are held in<br />

most wine-growing towns. Such is the case in<br />

Alzey, where the wine festival begins on the third<br />

Friday every September (this year from 17 th to 18 th ).<br />

The festival was first held in 1933 and was only cancelled<br />

during the Second World War from 1941 to<br />

1946. This wine festival - which is well-known and popular<br />

far beyond the Rhein Hesse region - is a mixture<br />

of a wine festival, a cultural festival and a fair event in<br />

the Alzey town centre. Organised by the city authorities,<br />

the 5-day event attracts more than 100,000 visitors<br />

every year. The centrepiece of the festival is the<br />

wine and champagne terrace on the Kronenplatz,<br />

where the wine growers from the Alzey<br />

region offer their products in 16 beautiful<br />

pagoda tents. As part of a wine tasting on Saturday<br />

during the wine festival, the city awards<br />

a public figure for his or her merits to wine and<br />

the wine culture in the Rhein Hesse region with<br />

the “Scheuplakette”. This year, the prize winner<br />

was the TV celebrity chef Horst Lichter. All<br />

in all, 60 showman attractions were approved<br />

to one of the two fairgrounds, which are connected to<br />

each other by a thoroughfare of marketer stalls. While<br />

the “Beach Party” from Milz/van den Bosch, the “Magic<br />

House” (Kutschenbauer) and the dodgem track<br />

from Nickel were placed on the first fairground this<br />

time, the “Breakdance” (Bruch), “Flipper” (Meeß) and<br />

the “Golden Wheel” Ferris Wheel (Jost) were the attractions<br />

built up on the second fairground. A pony ride,<br />

kiddie carousel, kiddie track ride and Jet Ride were<br />

spread across the whole entertainment area. The original<br />

“Rheinhessische Dorf”, or “Rhein Hesse Village”,<br />

offering seating for up to 1,000 visitors, offered the<br />

guests culinary delicacies and a varied entertainment<br />

programme. On Monday, the fireworks display at the<br />

72 nd wine festival enticed a large number of visitors and<br />

on Tuesday most of the participating showmen were<br />

able to report positive results.<br />

WUPPERTAL<br />

Michael Petersen<br />

Première in Wuppertal:<br />

the Schwebebahnkirmes<br />

From October 22 nd to 25 th<br />

the “Schwebebahnkirmes”<br />

was held for the first time<br />

on the Wuppertal Circusplatz<br />

on the Carnaper<br />

Straße. This new event<br />

also marked the end of this<br />

year’s fairground season<br />

in the largest city in the<br />

Bergisches Land region.<br />

36


The Wuppertal Showman Association had gone to<br />

great lengths to establish the new fair event, twice<br />

publishing advertisements and up-to-date reports<br />

during the week of build up in the Wuppertal daily<br />

newspaper with the widest circulation, to call attention<br />

to the coming event. Moreover, new posters<br />

had been drafted, which were not however, printed<br />

according to the design ordered. While the primary<br />

colour ordered was bright red, the posters<br />

were delivered with a brown background. Even<br />

though the size of the text was too small, about 100<br />

of the misprinted posters were put up along Wuppertal’s<br />

main streets. The fairground was fully<br />

fenced-in and information panels announcing<br />

rules of conduct were put up. Throughout the event<br />

security personnel from an Essen firm patrolled the<br />

fairground. These measures effectively prevented<br />

incidents and fights, and provided for a peaceful<br />

and orderly fair event. For the first time in years, the<br />

Carnaper Platz could be appealingly filled to capacity<br />

and laid out with appealing ride attractions<br />

and a glass labyrinth. Contrary to our preview,<br />

there were a number of changes, yet it must be said<br />

that these had a positive effect on the overall image<br />

of the fair. As the fairground can only be laid<br />

out as a classic circuit course, the Family Coaster<br />

“Twister” from Kaiser and a Bungee-Trampoline<br />

(Smith) were built up on the southern top-end site<br />

of the fairground, whereas the “Fliegende Teppich”<br />

(Hartmann) and - for the first time - Noack’s “Musik<br />

Express”, were built up on the northern side. The<br />

sites in the inner circle of the fairground were occupied<br />

by the dodgem track from Fuhrmann,<br />

Jansen’s “Breakdance”, the “Aqua-Labyrinth”<br />

(Markmann), “Höllentaxi”(Senk) and the “Free<br />

Style” from Agtsch, with the swing effectively<br />

placed on a corner site opposite the main entrance.<br />

The heralded “Sky-Glider” (Prumbaum)<br />

however could not be presented due to a technical<br />

fault. For the first time, the fair on the Carnaper<br />

Platz opened on the Friday and closed the following<br />

Monday. On the opening day, visitor attendance<br />

was much lower than the showmen had<br />

hoped for though. Nevertheless, the first opening<br />

day of the Schwebebahnkirmes closed with a brilliant<br />

fireworks display, and on the Saturday afternoon<br />

the event was mainly attended by families<br />

with children. After the promising start to the day,<br />

its conclusion was quite disappointing due to<br />

strong downpours that discouraged the public.<br />

Unfortunately, this proved also to be the case on<br />

the Sunday. Although many visitors rushed the fairground<br />

once again on Family Day, losses incurred<br />

due to continuous rain at the weekend could not<br />

be made up for. As a result financial results fall<br />

short of expectations. Summary: With the new concept,<br />

a shorter duration of the event, a new schedule<br />

and an intensive advertising campaign, the<br />

Wuppertal Showman Association is definitely<br />

heading in the right direction. Apart from one game<br />

stall, the Schwebebahnkirmes was occupied by<br />

attractive fairground attractions at its première and<br />

offered appealing entertainment for both young<br />

and old. Unfortunately, the weather was not at all<br />

ideal and put a bit of a “downer” on the event. ■<br />

look back to a long tradition: dating<br />

back to 1627. In addition to the<br />

“Caesars Wheel”, Musik-Express,<br />

“Breakdance”, “Geisterhotel”, and<br />

the “Paderborner Bodenmühle”,<br />

the novelty swing “Rocket” and the “Bayernwippe”<br />

Hopser were deployed on the 500-metre fair-mile.<br />

Among the concession stalls visitors encountered not<br />

only well-known operations from the large Groß-Libori,<br />

but also attractions not standing a chance of being<br />

approved to the Hauptlibori. This time there was a<br />

quite simple Chinese snack booth and the undecorated<br />

ski hut from a local hotel owner.<br />

Although it was no record<br />

Freimarkt event, the overall visitor<br />

number at the end of the 17-<br />

day fair (October 15 th to 30 th ) hit<br />

the usual 4 million target, despite<br />

the rainy second weekend.<br />

The topic much discussed in the<br />

days prior to the Freimarkt opening<br />

was the short-term absence of the<br />

Steiger Ferris Wheel, which had<br />

been so seriously damaged in a dismantling accident<br />

(thankfully without any personal injuries) at the Oldenburg<br />

Kramermarkt on Monday that its appearance had<br />

to be cancelled. The Freimarkt team, under the management<br />

of Claudia Lange, organised an adequate replacement<br />

ride on the same Monday evening, namely<br />

the “Europarad” from the Kipp family, who miraculously<br />

made the impossible possible, relocating the<br />

wheel from the company premises in Bonn to Bremen<br />

and building it up ready for operating at the Freimarkt<br />

opening on Friday. Claudia Kipp said: “When we learnt<br />

about the decision from Bremen, countless friends and<br />

colleagues spontaneously offered to help. We were<br />

very impressed!” Despite continuous drizzle many<br />

visitors made a first stop at the Freimarkt event on the<br />

Bürgerweide fairground on the opening evening. During<br />

the opening, a première took place in the Bayernzelt,<br />

where David McAllister was the first Prime Minister<br />

of Lower Saxony to give a guest speech. He tried<br />

to win over the public with the rhetorical question<br />

“What are 200 years of Oktoberfest in Munich compared<br />

to 974 years of Bremen Freimarkt?” Carl-Hans<br />

Röhrßen, General Manager of the Bremen Showman<br />

Association, disclosed the reason for inviting McAllister:<br />

“50 percent of our visitors come from Lower Saxony.<br />

We thought that on the occasion of the 975 th anniversary,<br />

it was high time a representative from the<br />

neighbouring German state had a say.” There were<br />

once again complaints from the "City-Initiative" retailers,<br />

who would like to have the Freimarkt procession<br />

postponed from the second Saturday to the following<br />

Sunday, arguing that the procession impeded the access<br />

to their shops.<br />

As usual the small Freimarkt was held on the market<br />

square in the city centre, where visitors encountered a<br />

new “original carousel" this time, namely the historic<br />

fairytale carousel from the Mondorf family, which replaced<br />

the multi-level carousel. The seats on the giraffe<br />

and zebra mounts of the carousel from 1898 were<br />

much coveted among the younger visitors, and the<br />

sculpture of the Bremen Town Musicians set up by<br />

Mondorf was a popular, much-photographed and filmed<br />

motif. Back on the Bürgerweide fairground, the Freimarkt<br />

novelties, “Lach+Freu-Haus” (Distel), “Rocket” (Goetzke)<br />

and “Transformer” (Schmidt) were highly popular<br />

with the public, just as were the Freimarkt debutantes<br />

“Omni” and “Hex'n Wippn”. Moreover, the roofed over<br />

attractions, such as the “Troika” (Heine) and the “Petersburger<br />

Schlittenfahrt” (Burgdorf), were very well<br />

attended (and not only due to frequent rainfalls). The<br />

superb live show at the “Geisterschloss” from Judenhofer-Kunz<br />

caused a huge furore. The swing “Flash”<br />

38


(Weber) was also very well received. Placed on a generally<br />

unfavourable site, it made a magnificent visual<br />

impression on this location thanks to its distinctive ride<br />

pattern. Only very few will have known that Roie’s<br />

“Crinoline” (next to the Ferris Wheel) made its last<br />

rounds at the Freimarkt before being sold. If this had<br />

been announced in the Bremen daily press or at the<br />

ride itself, many Freimarkt visitors would certainly have<br />

been enticed to take one or a number of rides on this<br />

carousel once again.<br />

Well worth mentioning are the information panels that<br />

the Freimarkt organisers had initiated at prominent attractions,<br />

giving<br />

valuable information<br />

on the history of the rides concerned. The 27-<br />

year old sailor Dominic Heinke set a new record on his<br />

favourite ride “Breakdance” (Dreher), being whirled<br />

around on the cult ride for precisely 12 hours and 12<br />

minutes in a single stretch – and (supported by the<br />

Dreher/Vespermann family) raising funds for the<br />

Deutsche Knochenmarkspenderdatei, or German<br />

Bone Marrow Donor Centre (DKMS) with this stunt. A<br />

look forward: The Bremen Freimarkt 2011 will be held<br />

from October 14 th to 30 th .<br />

The Mannemer<br />

Oktobermess 2010<br />

Text & Photos: Norman Vogt<br />

The largest Volksfest in the Pfalz region was<br />

opened on September 25 th – and after many years<br />

there was also a traditional beer tent at the Mannemer<br />

Mess (until October 10 th ) on the Neuer<br />

Messplatz fairground.<br />

Previous history: A few days after last year’s Oktobermess,<br />

another organiser held the Oktoberfest on the<br />

Alter Messplatz, about one kilometre away, which<br />

was occupied with a Ferris Wheel, a number of<br />

booths and a large tent (seating for 2,000 guests),<br />

proving to be a huge success. The tent alone registered<br />

more than 14,000 visitors last year. Under the<br />

motto: “Home of the Hosewackler” the beer tent is<br />

now to become a part of the traditional Oktobermess<br />

on the new fairground, where a classic tent had been<br />

absent of late. The two organisers, Thomas Sprengel<br />

A LOOK BACK<br />

Fun at the Veteran<br />

Car Ride and the thoroughfare<br />

approaching the beer tent<br />

from the City Events Mannheim (Oktobermess)<br />

and Arno Kieglele from DeMi-Promotion (Oktoberfest),<br />

have now amalgamated the events<br />

– so that both of them will benefit. Prior to this<br />

merger, the idea had also been largely positively<br />

received by the showmen. Inside the<br />

tent, Bavarian specialities such as grilled<br />

chicken, pork knuckles and Weisswurst were<br />

offered, together with Helles beer and Weissbier<br />

– accompanied by authentic Bavarian live<br />

music. The entrance fee was five Euros. Next<br />

to the tent, a beer garden was built up, with free<br />

entry for everybody. On the weekends, the<br />

beer tent was well attended – although not jampacked,<br />

but on weekdays visitor attendance<br />

was quite modest. As for the new fairground: Novelties<br />

for Mannheim were the Family Coaster “Mexico<br />

City” and the “”River Rafting” water ride. There were,<br />

bizarrely, two rides called “Eclipse”: firstly, a Korten’s<br />

Propeller Ride, and secondly the “Bratpfanne” from<br />

Störzer. Other rides presented were Spangenberger's<br />

“Magic”, Nickel’s “Super-Wellenflug”, Schmidt’s<br />

“Beach-Party”, Zinnecker’s “Bayern-Breaker”,<br />

Lagerin’s “Virus”, Hofmann’s “Aqua Velis”, Kipp’s “Action<br />

House”, Zinnecker’s “Geister Villa”, Kollmann’s<br />

“Top Spin”, Sterzenbach’s “Seesturmbahn”, Göbel’s<br />

“Rutsche”, and Tedesco’s Simulator.<br />

Both Family Days were very well attended, the second<br />

one boasting a higher turnover. At the conclusion<br />

of the event, the showmen's reviews ranged broadly<br />

from poor to very good.<br />

HAAN<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Michael Petersen<br />

A section of the Haan Fair<br />

from above<br />

From September 25 th to 28 th , the<br />

garden city of Haan was once<br />

again transformed into a fairground<br />

with an unparalleled atmosphere,<br />

with attractive fairground<br />

attractions being<br />

placed in the city centre, the<br />

Kaiserstraße and side streets,<br />

as well as on the entire city<br />

squares.<br />

This year, the 624 th Haan Fair yet<br />

again attracted thousands of visitors. Meanwhile, the<br />

Wednesday prior to the opening has developed into<br />

a true highlight for the locals, as the large fairground<br />

attractions are allowed to be built up only on this day.<br />

In the industrial area near the A46 autobahn, the<br />

showmen in their vehicles were already impatiently<br />

waiting for this moment. Shortly before 2 a.m. the imposing<br />

convoy finally set out for the city centre. On<br />

Thursday, the concession stalls were built up. This<br />

time, there is no denying that neither the assembling<br />

of the participating showmen nor the official opening<br />

brought much joy for the Mayor, as the increase of<br />

fairground fees had resulted in massive showman<br />

protests. There is also no denying that the 20-million-<br />

Euro loss of trade tax revenue is not exactly peanuts<br />

for a small city like Haan. And the fairground fees<br />

from the showmen will certainly not make up for this<br />

loss. The fees in Haan have already reached break-<br />

40


ing point anyway.<br />

On a more positive note, however, at the opening<br />

ceremony Rolf Ostermann was honoured for his<br />

commitment to the fair events in Haan and Witten.<br />

During the Haan fair, the showmen are allowed to<br />

park their traction units and baggage vans for free<br />

on his premises. The strikingly strong turnover weekend<br />

at the Haan Fair was followed by disappointing<br />

business on the weekdays. Although turnover<br />

dropped due to poor and rainy weather, the participating<br />

showmen were quite satisfied with their results<br />

when the 4-day event was over. The layout of<br />

the fairground precisely conformed to the preview in<br />

the Kirmes & <strong>Park</strong> Revue, issue<br />

Nr.158, and the selection<br />

and presentation of the attractions<br />

was very successful.<br />

Next year, the 625 th Haan<br />

Fair will be celebrated with a<br />

number of additional events<br />

and changes. To mark the<br />

anniversary, it will be opened<br />

as early as the Friday, at<br />

about 5 p.m. Moreover, a<br />

nostalgic fair will be built up<br />

in the adjoining city park. ■<br />

BOCHOLT<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Michael Petersen<br />

The weather was quite beautiful throughout the Bocholt<br />

Fair, which was held on the third weekend in<br />

October (15 th to 18 th ). As it did not rain throughout<br />

the event, apart from the opening day, losses incurred<br />

on the first day could largely be made up for<br />

on the remaining three days.<br />

Fairground director Markus Kock had carried out a<br />

number of changes - giving the largest fairground of<br />

the Bocholt Fair, the Berliner Platz, a new character. For<br />

example, the sites of the two dodgem tracks were<br />

changed. While the “Drive In” dodgem track moved to<br />

the centre row, the “Formel 1” example was built up on<br />

the traditional Ghost Ride site. The outer row of the<br />

Berliner Platz (town hall side) was prominently occupied<br />

this time; next to one of the dodgem tracks appeared<br />

the “Shake”, the large “Daemonium” Ghost<br />

Ride, and the “Breakdance”. The site of the Bocholt<br />

cult ride “Octopussy” however remained unchanged.<br />

Also on the Berliner Platz visitors were able to enjoy the<br />

“Wonder-Wheel” Ferris Wheel, the large “XXL” Swing,<br />

the “Star-Flyer, a nostalgic chain ride, the “Phoenix”<br />

and the “Musik Express”.<br />

The “Loopingschaukel” Swing was placed in the access<br />

area to the Bayernfestzelt, and both the “Intoxx”<br />

and the “Bayernrutsche” slide were built up on the<br />

Meckenemstraße. However, the site of the slide was<br />

unfavourable, as it was built up in the entrance area<br />

and was therefore presented from its rear side. As a<br />

result, it could hardly present its remarkable visual<br />

appeal to its very best.<br />

The placement of the “Drop Attack” Free Fall Tower,<br />

built up slightly off the circular course in the Schanze<br />

area and hidden away behind trees, was another mistake.<br />

The sites of the “High Impress”, the “Remmi Demmi”<br />

Funhouse and the chain ride were, however, very<br />

effective. These bold decisions with regard to relocations<br />

are generally well worth praising, as it resulted in<br />

a completely new and exciting layout of the Berliner<br />

Platz. The programme in the always very crowded Bayernfesthalle<br />

provided a happy partying atmosphere,<br />

with Olaf Henning celebrating his 10 th performance at<br />

the Bocholt Fair. Michael Wendler was not absent either;<br />

he sang at the closing of the fair. As is tradition,<br />

numerous guests from the neighbouring Netherlands<br />

happily celebrated inside the Bayernfesthalle on the<br />

Saturday evening.<br />

Despite continuous rain on<br />

the opening day, most of<br />

the showmen were highly<br />

satisfied with their financial<br />

results, but there were also<br />

sections with low turnover<br />

on the fairground. The operations<br />

built up on the left<br />

side of the Aa bridge, for example,<br />

are somewhat “off<br />

the beaten track”, as most<br />

of the visitors follow the circuit<br />

course on the right side<br />

over the Schanze and towards<br />

the city centre. ■<br />

From September 1 st to 5 th , an<br />

amalgam of a fair event, a street<br />

festival, live performance and a<br />

sales fair awaited the public in<br />

the Ginneken suburb of Breda.<br />

Many stalls offering handcrafted<br />

articles, local specialities and<br />

clothes were built up and invited<br />

the visitors to meander through.<br />

Due to beautiful weather and live<br />

music, the beer gardens, bars and<br />

restaurants filled quickly and the<br />

showman attractions on the adjoining<br />

fairground enticed the public.<br />

Other rides presented were the<br />

“Crazy Dance Machine”, “Mirage”,<br />

“Beach Polyp”, de Weijer’s “Techno<br />

Dance”, the dodgem track<br />

“Route 66”, “Halloween” and the<br />

“Jet Bob”. The younger visitors enjoyed<br />

a Bungee-Trampoline, Horse<br />

Carousel, Minicar, pony ride, “Circus<br />

Race” and a Jet Ride. ■<br />

The small town of Geldrop is located five kilometres<br />

east of Eindhoven.<br />

IIn the 19 th century it was a classic factory town<br />

(wool and textiles), but production ceased for many<br />

decades before being resumed in the early 1960s.<br />

For the fair event (September 4 th to 8 th ), the 38,000-<br />

resident city was transformed into a fun mile, with<br />

showman attractions and stalls being placed along<br />

the pedestrian precinct and the adjoining squares.<br />

The Funhouse “Rue de Paris”, Stroucken’s “Rock It”<br />

and the “Enterprise” celebrated their Geldrop première<br />

this year. While the “Booster” Propeller rotated<br />

by the houses at the entrance to the fairground,<br />

the “Breakdance”, the “Tornado”, and the second<br />

Walkthrough construction “Walking Street” attracted<br />

the public to the rear section of the fairground.<br />

The selection of fairground attractions was rounded<br />

off with the Family Coaster “Bugs and Bees”, a<br />

dodgem track and various kiddie rides. ■<br />

Norman Vogt<br />

This year’s Forbach Kirb (October 8 th to 17 th ) surprised<br />

the public with what were, for this fairground,<br />

a surprising number of novelties.<br />

One of the most striking changes was the replacement<br />

of the often-presented “Halloween” Ghost Ride<br />

with the multi-storey attraction “Hook the Old”. Moreover,<br />

the Family Coaster “Le Cobra” was turned by<br />

90° - thereby managing to occupy a top-end site.<br />

While the regular guest, the go-kart track was absent<br />

this time, the “Speed Maxx” Propeller from Martin<br />

Rudy, which had celebrated a successful debut last<br />

year, appeared again. The two-storey Walkthrough<br />

construction “Brasil” also made a<br />

second appearance this year.<br />

The “Move It” from Laurier, virtually<br />

“sandwiched” between the<br />

“Taiga Jet” Matterhorn and<br />

Kiener’s “Crazy Dance”, was contracted<br />

as the top attraction. The<br />

“Discovery” rocket was also presented<br />

again. Further attractions<br />

built up were the very beautiful<br />

“Tourbillon” Caterpillar Ride, the<br />

“Toboggan” slide and the “Le’s<br />

Barjot’s” Walkthrough. ■<br />

EXHIBITION IN OER-ERKENSCHWICK<br />

For the 11 th time, the Stimmbergpark-Hotel<br />

in Oer-Erkenschwick<br />

was the meeting point for circus<br />

and fairground model builders<br />

from Germany and Europe during<br />

the first weekend in November.<br />

With free admittance, visitors<br />

were able to admire 60 dioramas<br />

and more than 1,000 models<br />

built to all common scales, in the<br />

large ballroom of the hotel.<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

It was noticeable that many reproductions and models<br />

were designed true-to-detail. On close inspection,<br />

“I love you” could be read on the gingerbread<br />

hearts in a fairground diorama, and looking through<br />

the window of a circus caravan, a teddy could be discovered<br />

sitting on the bed. Once again, model<br />

builders and other interested parties used the opportunity<br />

for a lively 'experience exchange'. A number of<br />

exhibitors also offered models and accessories for<br />

sale, and the exhibits covered almost everything relating<br />

to fairgrounds and circuses. Also interesting was<br />

the ample selection offered by small series manufac-<br />

turers. 1:24 scale models of old circus vehicles complete<br />

with interior furnishing were presented by<br />

Thomas Kind. In addition to their size, these filigree<br />

models with their large expanse of detail were an impressive<br />

sight. He also presented his new Circus<br />

Barum models for the first time at an exhibition, with<br />

the paybox wagon being particularly noticeable, re-<br />

produced true to detail. On a 6 m 2 ground area, Nico<br />

Bundt presented his imposing 1:87 scaled Circus Krone<br />

diorama. This model of the largest circus in Europe<br />

made quite an impression due to its picturesque design,<br />

with a medieval city district and the large circus<br />

vehicle fleet. Many little details and skilfully reconstructed<br />

everyday scenes rounded off this extraordinary<br />

presentation. Among other models there were<br />

also a number of 1:160 scaled fully-functional<br />

carousels. Mischa de Graaf from the Netherlands once<br />

again presented his new fairground diorama on a 1:87<br />

scale. A Dutch nostalgic ride could also be admired,<br />

the ride sequence of which is identical to the original.<br />

This fairground model was also reproduced in detail,<br />

including fairground posters and power junction boxes.<br />

In addition to parts of his fairground shop presentation,<br />

Rolf Sommer (www.kirmeswelt-hamburg.de)<br />

also presented several novelties. The models of most<br />

impressive designs were a popcorn carriage, the vehicle<br />

fleet of the showman Bruno Dreßen, and a waffle<br />

bakery. All the models are now available in kit form. The<br />

1:87 scale Circus-Krone<br />

model and the fairground<br />

The highlights at the exhibition also included Barth's<br />

spectacular Flying Circus ride, which had been skilfully<br />

and expertly reproduced trueto-original<br />

on a scale of 1:87. This<br />

year, Stefan Hirschfeld presented<br />

a number of novelties on his miniature<br />

fairground, which is equipped<br />

with fantastic lighting elements,<br />

with the Höllentaxi built by Werner<br />

Meinhardt being certainly the most<br />

noticeable. Stefan Hirschfeld had<br />

also equipped this model with a<br />

complete lighting system – a feast<br />

for the eyes. Christian Geist presented<br />

a confectionery wagon with<br />

an interior furnishing not previously<br />

thought possible! Taking a closer<br />

look at this extraordinary 1:16<br />

scale model one could hardly believe<br />

their eyes. Erich Moorhofer has busied himself<br />

with fairground model construction for decades. This<br />

time, he presented two build up dioramas of, among<br />

other attractions, the Revolution and the Happy Sailor<br />

models. Vehicles and figures for an American circus<br />

procession were built by Guido Ross.<br />

EXHIBITION<br />

The dinosaur among<br />

the exhibitions in the<br />

amusement industry<br />

returned to Orlando ten<br />

years ago<br />

The world’s largest trade exhibition<br />

for the amusement industry<br />

will now apparently be<br />

presented in the world capital<br />

of entertainment for quite a<br />

while. Ten times in Orlando in<br />

Florida in a row is far better<br />

than another experience in Atlanta<br />

in Georgia or some other<br />

city that cannot offer anything<br />

to trade visitors due to closed<br />

theme parks at that time of the<br />

year, but to bind to only one<br />

place of issue for such a long<br />

period is hugely presumptuous<br />

on the part of the umbrella<br />

organisation IAAPA, as far as<br />

future visitor numbers are concerned.<br />

IAAPA Expo<br />

Despite all the criticism, an annual rotation<br />

between Las Vegas and Orlando, as was<br />

originally planned, would have been without<br />

a doubt more appealing, nevertheless: the<br />

Greater Orlando area with its many different<br />

theme and amusement parks, evening<br />

entertainment, and not least the pleasant<br />

climate at that late time of the year, is a big draw<br />

for all trade visitors.<br />

50


For example Orlando entices with its three latest<br />

large attractions: the Flying Coaster “Manta” from<br />

B&M at SeaWorld (see KPR 7/2009), the innovative<br />

coaster “Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit” from<br />

Maurer Söhne at Universal Studios (See KPR<br />

12/2009), and naturally the new theme area “The<br />

Wizarding World of Harry Potter” at Universal<br />

Islands Of Adventure (see KPR 7/2010). This<br />

year’s social event took place there, and 2,200<br />

paying guests could enjoy an exclusive evening<br />

with Harry and his friends.<br />

The fact that this IAAPA summary appears more<br />

straightforward as the year before is not only due<br />

to the fact that there is naturally a lot less news to<br />

report due to the EAS event in Rome taking place<br />

only a few weeks previously, but also that this<br />

year’s event was substantially smaller than two<br />

years ago, when the IAAPA-expo took place in<br />

Orlando. In actual fact a good quarter of the huge<br />

exhibition hall was not occupied, however this<br />

was so well concealed that it was not noticeable<br />

to most of the 14,800 trade visitors.<br />

All novelties that were already mentioned in our<br />

EAS review two months ago are not mentioned<br />

again in this report, so reference should be made<br />

to the KPR-edition 11/2010 in this respect. In<br />

addition to the many new installations for 2011<br />

that can happily be announced (or have already<br />

been done so), there were even a number of real<br />

novelties to be found in the sense of new creations<br />

at the stands of a number of exhibitors. And<br />

because this has become quite rare in a once<br />

very innovative branch, we are introducing these<br />

attractions as a priority.<br />

The “Hollywood Rip Ride<br />

Rockit” at Universal Studios<br />

EXHIBITION<br />

Splashtacular as of<br />

now offers water slides and<br />

also pipe slides with<br />

interactive Light Points<br />

splashtacular<br />

The most creative manufacturer among the water<br />

slide firms, once again introduced a number of<br />

creations rich in ideas this year. For example the<br />

further development of the Bowl Slide under the<br />

name of “Double Balls Eye” with two two-seat<br />

tubes/rafts that give the possibility to circle in the<br />

huge funnel simultaneously.<br />

Interesting also is the installation of LED-“Point<br />

Lights” areas that have to be touched by the<br />

sliders in order to attain the highest possible<br />

number of points.<br />

The “Moving Ride” slide however appears to be<br />

particularly spectacular. In this case not only is<br />

the starting ramp lifted upwards mechanically, but<br />

a point of pipe turns during the drop. However,<br />

one side of this section is only a mockup and quite<br />

unusual for viewers to look at. The real pipe section<br />

does however offer a drop, a hill, or a side<br />

redirection for the sliders, depending on the<br />

actual position.<br />

The rotating part of the<br />

slide looks spectacular to all<br />

viewers, and is extremely<br />

unusual for water slides<br />

EXHIBITION<br />

Despite the crazy 85 metre<br />

total height, the “Mission Space”<br />

attraction is transportable<br />

The KMG-team at the<br />

IAAPA-Expo proudly presenting<br />

its world novelty<br />

KMG<br />

“Mission Space” is the name of the new attraction<br />

from the manufacturer from the Netherlands,<br />

which already reveals a lot about the height: a<br />

total of 82 metres will be reached by the transportable<br />

attraction, which is currently under construction<br />

and will go to showman Tony Kroon in<br />

the second week of April, celebrating its première<br />

in Rotterdam. The two ten-seat suspended gondolas<br />

will be lowered hydraulically for passenger<br />

loading, and even during the ride itself move up<br />

and down ten metres three times a minute, whilst<br />

the centre piece construction that looks similar to<br />

a building crane turns on its own axis, providing<br />

a flight path of 80 metres diameter. The maximum<br />

ride height will be 62 metres, ground measurements<br />

25 by 21 metres, and buildup will not require<br />

a crane.<br />

KMG is also working to capacity this year as usual:<br />

a 24-seat “Afterburner” with new lap restraints<br />

instead of the usual overhead restraints used until<br />

now will go to the American Morey’s Pier amusement<br />

park in March 2011, a 16-seat “Freak Out”<br />

and a Miami will be delivered to two unnamed<br />

customers in the USA, a “Booster” will go to New<br />

Zealand, Sweden and France will each receive a<br />

“Speed”, and in August 2011 the German showman<br />

Küchenmeister will take delivery of a large<br />

“XXL”-swing.<br />

Huss Rides<br />

The Bremen manufacturer revealed a number of<br />

new developments on the quiet, which will be<br />

mixed into the amusement branch. There are apparently<br />

five new ride ideas that will be upgrades<br />

of classic Huss attractions, keeping the technical<br />

prototype risk for operators to a minimum, but<br />

giving significant novelty effects. One will be the<br />

further development of the “Enterprise” or alternatively<br />

“Fly Away” adult ride, and there is also a<br />

tower based construction in the development<br />

phase, which can function as an up to 60 metre<br />

high landmark of the park concerned, and will be<br />

marketed accordingly. One eagerly awaits other<br />

realizations by Huss over the next years.<br />

Concrete projects will be a maritime designed<br />

“Airboat” to be delivered to a park in California,<br />

and at the same time a number of attractions – a<br />

“Giant Frisbee“, a “Top Spin” and a 120 metre<br />

high “Skytower” will be delivered to a new theme<br />

park from the Chinese OCT-Group in Buhan.<br />

A comparison of the “X”<br />

track cross-section (above) with<br />

that of the Dietrich plans<br />

Even in comparison with<br />

the train segments of the “X”<br />

(front) the lighter structure is<br />

impressive<br />

Jordan Dietrich<br />

Two coaster sensations were offered at the same<br />

time, and not from the well known manufactures<br />

either, but from an individual inventor from the<br />

USA. One of his ideas is a “2-in-1” coaster, a type<br />

of Duelling or Racing coaster, whereby the<br />

American Jordan Dietrich concept can be used<br />

on both sides on a number of track sections.<br />

Whether or not the real g-forces can be controlled<br />

so easily as on the model remains anybody’s<br />

guess initially. The idea to use one track for two<br />

coasters is however noteworthy.<br />

Even more innovative is the new interpretation of<br />

a 4D-coaster. Inspired by the problems that Arrow<br />

Dynamics (later taken over by S&S) had with the<br />

realization of its new type of “X”-coaster at Six<br />

Flags Magic Mountain, Dietrich had developed a<br />

more compact track system with only one<br />

additional steel pipe running in the centre, which<br />

mechanically controlled the rotation of<br />

the seats. The technology on the<br />

coaster cars has also been essentially<br />

reduced so that the block train, in<br />

comparison to the Arrow/S&S versions,<br />

can be considerably lighter and<br />

at the same time have more pleasurable<br />

rotations.<br />

Both ideas have been patented by<br />

Jordan Dietrich, and can be called for<br />

by interested manufacturers. Insofar,<br />

a realization may well be questionable,<br />

but it would be great to come<br />

upon more of this type of spectacular<br />

4D-coaster.<br />

The cross section of the<br />

track makes it easier to understand:<br />

S&S<br />

Ownership changes have come about at the earlier<br />

compressed air specialist company S&S Power<br />

from the US-Mormon state Utah in that long<br />

time shareholder Larsen MacColl Partners LP has<br />

united all shares for itself, whilst General Manager<br />

Rich Alan and Sales Manager Kevin Rohwer<br />

have retained their positions.<br />

New also is the extended portfolio through the<br />

“Small Rides Division” which now contains kiddie<br />

and family attractions. Two of them were presented<br />

in the outside area during the IAAPA-Expo: a<br />

“Frog Hopper” and a compressed air operated<br />

swing in a miniature format – at least when compared<br />

to the “Screamin’ Swing” construction of<br />

this type. Children can already partake with a<br />

height of 90 centimetres. The ready to ride “Junior<br />

Swing” was very attractively designed with large<br />

cockatoo and butterfly figures. At the exhibition<br />

stand itself, a part of a train of the third Launched<br />

Coaster of the new generation was presented,<br />

which will go into operation following the installations<br />

“ring°racer” at Nürburgring and “Shangrila<br />

Snowfield” at the Chinese Happy Valley Shenzhen<br />

in 2011, in another Chinese <strong>Park</strong> in Wuhan.<br />

By the way Nürburgring: the so-called “ring°racer”,<br />

once publicized as the fastest coaster in the<br />

world with its 217 kilometre per hour speed, is<br />

supposedly definitely opening in May 2011.<br />

abc rides<br />

Merlin Entertainments signed a contract during<br />

the exhibition for the purchase of another indoor<br />

Freefall Tower for the new Blackpool Dungeon.<br />

Additionally a River Rapid and an interactive water<br />

attraction called “Muschelkarussell” will also<br />

be delivered in the 2011 season.<br />

The “Marbel Race”, introduced at the EAS (and<br />

introduced in our EAS summary) caused a lot of<br />

potential customer interest in particular. Also interesting<br />

for visitors<br />

was the interactive<br />

“Seashell Ride” according<br />

to abc Manager<br />

Willy Walser, which in<br />

actual fact had already<br />

been introduced two<br />

years ago, opening the<br />

new Smart Rides product<br />

series at the time.<br />

“In the case of our<br />

product” emphasized<br />

Walser, “the platform<br />

does not have to be lifted<br />

or lowered for passengers<br />

to have dry feet<br />

during loading. The<br />

gondolas turn automatically<br />

towards the out-<br />

EXHIBITION<br />

The interactive “Seashell<br />

Carousel” from abc rides<br />

Two further projects in the<br />

Smart Rides segment from abc:<br />

“Zeppelin” and “Ice Bear”<br />

side”. The “Seashell Ride” is available in various<br />

designs, measures 13 metres in diameter and<br />

accommodates four passengers in one of the<br />

eight gondolas. Equipped with water pistols, passengers<br />

can also spray each other.<br />

Once again Willy Walser from the Swiss manufacturing<br />

company abc rides, introduced new<br />

ride construction ideas in the Smart Rides series,<br />

which appear to have hit the pulse of the times:<br />

new types of interactive attractions for reasonable<br />

installation and maintenance costs. For example<br />

the “Ice Bear” available also with other themes<br />

where four pairs set forth on each of the oppositely<br />

rotating platforms. But the classic attractions<br />

also belong in the Smart Rides portfolio,<br />

such as the ten metre high “Riesenschaukeln”, in<br />

this case powered mechanically, or the “Zeppelin”<br />

(ten metres in diameter and five metres<br />

high). Newly introduced was a “Twin Wheel” variation<br />

in a mining design. The gondola accommodating<br />

a maximum of two passengers reaches a<br />

ride height of up to eight metres.<br />

Dynamic Motion Rides<br />

New structuring at the Austrian 5D Explore have<br />

been announced: whilst the firm with the same<br />

name continues with the theming of constructions,<br />

film realization and also the marketing of the<br />

Vienna Riesenradplatz, David Vatcher and Dr.<br />

Michael Prager, company lawyers for 5D until<br />

now, are now responsible alone for the marketing<br />

and erecting of the “Flyboard” attractions with<br />

their newly founded Dynamic Motion Rides<br />

GmbH. Following the successful continued operation<br />

of the prototypes at the Vienna Prater and in<br />

<strong>Salzburg</strong>, a double construction will be delivered<br />

in the year 2012 to an as yet unnamed Six Flags<br />

park.<br />

Mondial Rides<br />

From non-confirmed sources, the litigation<br />

instigated by Funtime against Mondial has had<br />

negative results. In any case, the manufacturer<br />

56


EXHIBITION<br />

And another two ride<br />

ideas from Willy Walser:<br />

the viewing ride “Twin Wheel”<br />

and the “Riesenschaukel”<br />

from the Netherlands has gone on the offensive<br />

and offers in addition to the four 95 metre high<br />

huge flyers that will go into operation in the spring<br />

at four Cedar-Fair-<strong>Park</strong>s, a further variation of the<br />

“WindSeekers”. Interested park operators now<br />

can choose from versions with a height between<br />

65 and 95 metres, or constructions with 24 suspended<br />

seats instead of 64.<br />

Ride Entertainment Group<br />

Italian theme park is to receive an undefined attraction<br />

as well. Six Flags Over Texas has already<br />

been delivered three attractively themed trains for<br />

the “Texas Giant” coaster erected in 1990, which<br />

will have to go through a gender reassignment by<br />

March 2011: the 43 metre high and 1,500 metre<br />

long wooden coaster (1990 erected by Dinn/Summers)<br />

will receive steel tracks and with that will<br />

become a so-called Hybrid Coaster.<br />

Typical Texan: the front<br />

car of the new coaster train is<br />

designed with a longhorn for<br />

the “Texas Giant” oozes power<br />

and arrogance<br />

Austrian “Starflyer” manufacturer Funtime was not<br />

present at the IAAPA exhibition this year personally,<br />

but was represented by its American agent.<br />

Adam Sandy from Ride Entertainment announced<br />

that Funtime will be delivering two huge chain<br />

rides to Six Flags Inc. – Six Flags Discovery Kingdom<br />

(California) will receive a 45 metre high<br />

version, and Six Flags St. Louis (Missouri) will be<br />

erecting a 70 metre high standard version.<br />

Gerstlauer<br />

Gerstlauer Amusement Rides can look back at a<br />

very successful year, as in addition to the already<br />

announced “Eurofighter”-attraction for Six Flags<br />

Over Georgia, Canobie Lake <strong>Park</strong> is also to received<br />

a coaster of this type, however the exact<br />

size has not yet been revealed by Siegfried Gerstlauer.<br />

Further along, the North German Hansa-<br />

<strong>Park</strong> has ordered a family coaster from Gerstlauer,<br />

following the opening of its “Eurofighter” in 2009,<br />

which, as is the case of the spectacular “Fluch<br />

von Novgorod” is to have a Viking theme. The Belgian<br />

Plopsa Coo near Spa will receive a not yet<br />

named Spinning Coaster from the manufacturer.<br />

And the earlier “Gremlins Invasion”- hall at Movie<br />

<strong>Park</strong> Germany will also have a coaster installed<br />

by Gerstlauer, most probably with a Darkride<br />

sequence. <strong>Park</strong> Manager Wouter Dekkers is very<br />

happy about the new attraction that will open<br />

officially in June 2011. “We’re really happy that our<br />

new owner Parques Reunidos has approved<br />

investment in a new attraction”. Additionally, an<br />

The Spanish Theming Attractions and Animatronics<br />

had most probably erected the most creative<br />

exhibitor stand in Orlando: a wrecked pirate<br />

ship, with which Capitan Udo Weisenburger had<br />

already successfully arrived at the EAS in Rome.<br />

The heavily expanding company will be responsible<br />

for the theme concept and the design realization<br />

of the Indoor Coaster at Movie <strong>Park</strong> Germany<br />

as well as the design execution of the new<br />

Dive Coaster at Germany’s Heide-<strong>Park</strong>, which will<br />

be set into the scene impressively as an octopus.<br />

Further contracts from Merlin Entertainments<br />

were the realization of the Egyptian themed<br />

overnight huts at Legoland Deutschland, and the<br />

inside design of the SeaLife Centre in Dallas.<br />

Chance Morgan<br />

A second major ride type “Unicoaster” will be<br />

erected during the 2011 season at the San Diego<br />

Mission Bay Boardwalk – purchaser is the San<br />

Diego Coaster Company (operator of the classic<br />

wooden coaster “Giant Dipper”), and not the<br />

operating company of the rest of the attractions<br />

on the same location, which recently had to file<br />

for bankruptcy. The adult ride will be called<br />

“Octotron” and has a two-seat gondola on all<br />

eight arms, which somersault according to the<br />

wishes of the passengers, sometimes more,<br />

sometimes less. The company is also completing<br />

the contracted 60 metre high Ferris Wheel “Sky-<br />

Wheel” by Landmark/Bussink, which with its 42<br />

LED-illuminated gondolas, will open in May 2011<br />

at the entertainment and amusement area Myrtle<br />

Beach Landing (South Carolina). The operator will<br />

be the Myrtle Beach Sky Wheel, LLC., a joint venture<br />

between Koch Development Co. and Pacific<br />

Development, both from St. Louis (Missouri).<br />

Further along, Ronald Bussink announced the<br />

construction of a new type of Ferris Wheel, which<br />

can at long last be realized after five years of development.<br />

It will be an 80 metre high construction<br />

with only six and not the usual and in general<br />

eight supports (the highlight: the front masts are<br />

able to withstand pressure and wind), which also<br />

lightens transport and build up considerably. A<br />

round in one of the 54 cabins accommodating up<br />

to eight passengers takes between 15 to 20<br />

minutes. Before operation and construction was<br />

taken over by Dutch Wheels (Vekoma), the prototypes<br />

were built by Maurer Söhne according to<br />

agreements made, and will be ready for testing<br />

58


on the Munich company<br />

grounds, punctually to<br />

the Oktoberfest 2011,<br />

said Bussink.<br />

US Thrillrides<br />

Bill Kitchen, the inventor<br />

of the “Unicoaster”, “Skycoaster”<br />

and “SkyVenture”<br />

attractions had already<br />

introduced his new<br />

“SkyQuest” idea at last<br />

year’s IAAPA-show. This<br />

is a type of hang-glider<br />

concept as a closed system,<br />

whereby – as is the<br />

case of a cable car – the circular cable is accelerated,<br />

and not the gondola. In Orlando the first<br />

customer for such an attraction was announced,<br />

and will be produced by Kitchen for the first time<br />

together with a subcontractor. The Indianapolis<br />

Zoo will receive the world’s first “SkyQuest” from<br />

US Thrillrides for the 2012 season – however it will<br />

be downgraded as a “people mover” or alternatively<br />

a normal cable car, as acceleration on the<br />

round course is not scheduled.<br />

SBF / Visa<br />

The Italian manufacturer presented two of its latest<br />

rides in the exhibition hall, ready for testing:<br />

the kiddie free fall tower “Heli Hopper” is available<br />

in various sizes and designs. And the round ride<br />

named “Airborne Shot” has eight loosely suspended<br />

arms each for two persons, which at a<br />

speed of 13 r.p.m. produces a flight circle of 13.2<br />

metres<br />

undoubtedly breathtaking<br />

“High Five” element works<br />

Lower pictures: the “Wie-<br />

Flyer” from Wiegand Slides<br />

The Gravity Group<br />

The specialist for Hybrid Coasters (wooden<br />

tracks on steel constructions) is erecting a<br />

double-wooden-coaster for the Chinese OCT<br />

Happy Valley <strong>Park</strong> in Wuhan, which will simultaneously<br />

be China’s first Racing Coaster at the<br />

opening of the park in autumn 2011. Both of the<br />

1,100 metre long tracks offer not only partly<br />

dissimilar track sections (for example the first<br />

drops are different from one another), but as<br />

highlight the so-called “High Five” element will be<br />

used here for the first time, in that the parallel<br />

running tracks run tilted at 90° for a short moment,<br />

so that the heads of the passengers near each<br />

other. The construction and the buildup are as<br />

usual by Gravity, the completion by Martin &<br />

Vleminckx.<br />

And three further coasters from the Gravity Group<br />

will be completed by 2011: already in March, a<br />

“Twister” will go into operation at the Swedish<br />

theme park Gröna Lund, to be followed by “Zippin<br />

Pippin” at Bay Beach <strong>Park</strong>, and “Wooden Warrior”<br />

at Quassi Amusement <strong>Park</strong>, both in the USA.<br />

Wiegand Slides<br />

As a further development of the “Hexenbesen”,<br />

Wiegand presented the so-called “Wie-Flyer”, in<br />

which from the spring of 2011, ride guests can fly<br />

through the air at up to 40 kilometres per hour in<br />

closed all-weather gondolas. Two passengers sit<br />

behind each other in the futuristic airplane<br />

gondola that is equipped with an infinitely variable<br />

electrical motor, controlled by the pilots. An automatic<br />

distance control on the 500 metre long section<br />

prevents collisions. The location will be the<br />

new Inselsberg-Funpark that has come into being<br />

around the already existing 1,000 metre dry toboggan<br />

run. Further adaptations will be erected<br />

by Heege here: “Flying-Fox”, “Nautic-Jet”, “Luna<br />

Loop” and “Sky Dive”.<br />

Further information was given by Junior Manager<br />

Hendrik Wiegand about the sale of four new<br />

“Alpine Coasters” for the North American market.<br />

The company is particularly proud of the past season:<br />

in the business year 2010, 24 constructions<br />

were erected by the Wiegand company worldwide.<br />

The theming of two interactive<br />

towers from Heege at the<br />

Spanish park Port Aventura<br />

Heege<br />

Eleven (!) cable control towers will be opened<br />

worldwide in the year 2011, and leading the way<br />

are three examples each of this beloved classic<br />

to the new Legolands in Florida and in Malaysia.<br />

They will have the typical Lego-design, as still<br />

known from other parks of this group. Further<br />

along a tower will each go to Estonia, the Swedish<br />

holiday resort Camp 2000, and to the Italian<br />

Rainbow Magic Land. Two especially interesting<br />

examples will be erected in the Spanish theme<br />

park Port Aventura, which will be installed in the<br />

new “Sésamo Aventura” theme area with further<br />

kiddie attractions, with appropriate design. Last<br />

but not least, a cable car will be delivered to<br />

Greece.<br />

SB International<br />

The Swedish manufacturer of kiddie driving<br />

schools that recently delivered three to Ferrari<br />

World, and is also very much present at various<br />

Legolands, is probably to erect a further example<br />

at Wildpark Lüneburger Heide. In this case<br />

however it would have a special theme and will<br />

be presented from 2011 as the “Children Farm”.<br />

The design of the scenes would be taken over by<br />

the Bremen wood construction firm Ghepetto.<br />

Garner Holt<br />

The animatronics specialist has been contracted<br />

by the Galasso family to extend the natural grotto<br />

Howe Caverns in Cobleskill in the US-State of<br />

New York with a new attraction. Emil Galasso: “My<br />

vision is to create a destination resort. Even during<br />

these tough economic times, we're getting<br />

nearly 200,000 visitors a year to Howe Caverns.<br />

We want to give them more to do while they're<br />

here”. An important component should form the<br />

new 20 hectare sized “Dinosaur Canyon”, giving<br />

the visitors the opportunity to interact with the 24<br />

prehistoric creatures from Garner Holt.<br />

Mack Rides<br />

We have already reported about the “Twist ’n’<br />

Splash” with Spongebob-theming for Blackpool<br />

Pleasure Beach, however for 2011, Maximilian<br />

Röser from Mack promises a completely new type<br />

of ride that will also celebrate its première in England<br />

– unfortunately no further information was<br />

given. And after the company-owned Europa-<br />

<strong>Park</strong> was able to successfully put into operation<br />

the Launched Looping attraction “blue fire” in<br />

2009, Mack has announced a strong interest for<br />

this type of large coaster, for example the Italian<br />

Etnalandia has ordered a 30 metre high and 500<br />

metre long coaster example. The attraction however<br />

is to have a normal lift system without looping,<br />

but offering lots of airtime-hills and wild<br />

directional changes.<br />

Additionally a Powered Coaster for Ocean <strong>Park</strong> in<br />

Hong Kong is being produced,<br />

and another “Twist ’n’ Splash”<br />

has been ordered. Already a<br />

Spinning Coaster has been<br />

contracted by the French Parc<br />

Le Pal, which will be operated<br />

with a block train similar to the<br />

“Sierra Sidewinder” at Knott’s<br />

Berry Farm. The layout however<br />

is to be designed to be substantially<br />

faster than the Californian<br />

version. And visitors to<br />

the Austrian Märchenwald am<br />

Neusiedlersee will also be happy<br />

about a novelty from Mack in<br />

the near future.<br />

EXHIBITION<br />

Vekoma<br />

Four attractions for the Italian Rainbow Magic<br />

Land (“Madhouse”, “Sky Shuttle”, “Minetrain”,<br />

“Junior Coaster”) have already been delivered to<br />

the customer, and the Chinese Red Sun <strong>Park</strong> will<br />

be handed over a “Motorbike Coaster” in February,<br />

which will more than likely be followed by the<br />

new type of “Junior Boomerang” at <strong>English</strong> Drayton<br />

Manor <strong>Park</strong> in April, “That has to be visualized<br />

as a classic Vekoma-“Boomerang” said Charlotte<br />

van Etten, “but without inversions.” More information<br />

was not available from the company due<br />

to customer requirements. Further installations for<br />

2011 are a “Giant Inverted Boomerang” for Jin<br />

Jian <strong>Park</strong> in Shanghai, and a “Junior Coaster” for<br />

the ORA Themepark in Turkey.<br />

ProSlide<br />

The company was particularly proud of this year’s<br />

IAAPA award “Best New Water Ride” given to the<br />

Canadian water slide manufacturer for its “Topsy-<br />

Turvy” slides that were erected at a number of<br />

water parks during the past season – for example<br />

at Wild Wadi (Dubai), Aquatica (Florida), Darien<br />

Lake (New York) and Adventureland USA (Iowa).<br />

The “Duelling Hydro Magnetic Mammoth” slide<br />

was introduced in a model form as a new creation.<br />

As it is, press speaker for Pro-Slide, Tara Casey,<br />

is very certain that the “Hydro Magnetics” belong<br />

in the future. This is shown by the success of the<br />

very large construction “Wildebeest” at Holiday<br />

World, which went into operation during the past<br />

season.<br />

The large attraction<br />

“Wildebeest” at Holiday World<br />

(USA Sate of Indiana) has a<br />

number of magnetic catapult<br />

sections in the track system<br />

Premier Rides<br />

The largest installation for Premier Rides for the<br />

upcoming year will be erected in Indonesia, as<br />

the Para Group in Bundung is opening a new<br />

shopping mall together with the largest indoor<br />

park in the country. And highlight of the Trans Studio<br />

will be a Catapult Coaster with magnetic<br />

operation. Similar to the American “Mr. Freeze“<br />

variations, the train shoots per<br />

magnetic operation (from zero<br />

to 112 kilometres per hour in 3.8<br />

seconds) initially towards a<br />

Top-Hat, before, following a<br />

second LIM-section, the train<br />

runs off a vertical ramp and returns<br />

to the station backwards.<br />

Both attractions at Six<br />

Flags Magic Mountain: the<br />

“Reverse Freefall Coaster” and<br />

the new “Green Lantern”<br />

Intamin<br />

Intamin was awarded “Best New Product” for its<br />

“Family Coaster with Freefall” (namely “Thirteen”<br />

at the <strong>English</strong> <strong>Park</strong>, Alton Towers). Inasmuch then,<br />

it’s no wonder that a second example of a similar<br />

type (with freefall sequence and launch section)<br />

but with a different layout, is planned for a European<br />

theme park for 2012.<br />

Already the order books for 2011 are well filled:<br />

for Six Flags Magic Mountain there will be a delivery<br />

of a “Zac Spin Coaster” (same layout as in<br />

Gröna Lund), but also a newer, more open and<br />

lighter car for the already existing “Reverse<br />

Freefall Coaster”. A 40 metre high “Surf Rider” has<br />

been ordered by Volker Meyer from Atallah <strong>Park</strong><br />

in Saudi Arabian Jeddah, and a similar ride will<br />

go to Disneyland Hong Kong (identical to the attraction<br />

at Disneyland Paris). A new 55 metre high<br />

“Topside Impulse Coaster” with LSM-operation,<br />

whereby both ends will be slightly kinked inwards<br />

will be delivered to a new Chinese park. New here<br />

also is the seat order to the side of the tracks,<br />

which is similar to “Zac Spin” cars.<br />

There have also been heavy enquiries within the<br />

areas of water attractions and tower constructions,<br />

emphasised Sascha Czibulka from Intamin:<br />

the Chinese Dinosaur <strong>Park</strong> will receive a 25 metre<br />

high “Spillwater” with vertical lift, the Italian park<br />

in Valmontone has contracted a 20 metre high<br />

“Spillwater” and a large Rapid Ride. Ocean <strong>Park</strong><br />

in Hong Kong will also be erecting a Rapid Ride.<br />

In the tower segment, in addition to the reconstruction<br />

at the Swedish Liseberg (the existing<br />

View Tower will become a Freefall Tower), there<br />

will be two new viewing towers erected: a 110 metre<br />

high construction in Taipei and a 150 meter<br />

high version for the Texas State Fair. Further along<br />

there will be a new Monorail track erected in<br />

Europe, Africa, and China, however not in theme<br />

parks, but to be used as urban transport.<br />

Sascha Czibulka also advised that a new product<br />

separation has come to Intamin/Ride Trade: in<br />

future there will only be Intamin Transportation<br />

and Intamin Amusement Rides. Both sections will<br />

have their head office in Liechtenstein; the last<br />

mentioned encompasses all products for the<br />

amusement industry. Intamin also promises many<br />

new attractions for 2012 (especially in the coaster<br />

segment) about which naturally we will be reporting.<br />

EXHIBITION<br />

A COMMENTARY TO INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS<br />

INFO<br />

Text:<br />

Jochen Peschel<br />

The printed images here are<br />

all original pages from the<br />

catalogue Chinese Amusement<br />

Rides 2010 that was<br />

distributed at the IAAPA Expo<br />

in Orlando. The firm or alternatively<br />

the exhibitor calls itself<br />

in two different ways: Beijing<br />

Zhongli Weiye Amusement<br />

Facility Co., Ltd, and also Universal<br />

Amusement. ■<br />

On this page there are two<br />

united illustrations that have<br />

both been taken over from<br />

other manufacturers: “Flying<br />

Mars” is the “Star Fire” from<br />

Preston & Barbieri, and “Space<br />

Flying” actually is called<br />

“Swinger” and is from Mondial<br />

Even manufacturer Huss<br />

Rides wasn’t spared: the pictured<br />

“Giant Frisbee” is in actual<br />

fact a “Giant Frisbee” in a new<br />

Chinese park<br />

The large branch exhibitions of<br />

the amusement industry return<br />

every year. And with the same<br />

regularity there are complaints<br />

about violations against intellectual<br />

property rights.<br />

So the time is very near for juridical<br />

action to be taken against<br />

these violations. During only a<br />

few exhibition days speedy decisions<br />

have to be made as to<br />

whether an injunction be applied<br />

for and finally enforced. Whilst<br />

copyright and trademark infringement<br />

lead to a decree without<br />

any problems, as was the<br />

case at the EAS 2008 in Munich,<br />

this action can prove difficult<br />

particularly in the case of patent<br />

infringements. However, must<br />

the situation always lead to juristic<br />

means immediately? This always<br />

involves effort and expense.<br />

An alternative could be an extrajudicial<br />

agreement. This basically<br />

is none other than a contractual<br />

agreement, whereby one is obligated<br />

to certain behaviour in<br />

the written form. To express a<br />

declaration of intent however, the<br />

authorized representative person<br />

must be present, or at the<br />

very least be available in the<br />

short-term. Additionally neither<br />

party would be likely to rush<br />

rashly into such a commitment<br />

without receiving legal counsel<br />

first. A quick solution to this type<br />

of conflict in this way is then not<br />

to be expected. Much more sensible<br />

appears to be a more informal<br />

way: the involvement of a<br />

neutral mediator.<br />

Such a mediator should be principally<br />

from the exhibition organiser.<br />

In the case of IAAPA, the<br />

exhibition regulations and the<br />

tenancy agreement for the stand<br />

contain certain passages regarding<br />

intellectual property, but<br />

however hardly refer to the issues<br />

in general. Interesting is the<br />

66


code of behaviour, non compliance<br />

of which leads to expulsion<br />

from the organisation – enforced<br />

and not only voluntary. For reasons<br />

of credibility, the implementation<br />

of these rules should not<br />

fall through.<br />

Naturally nobody can expect the<br />

organiser to undertake a hasty<br />

review of patent infringements.<br />

And it is understandable that he<br />

does not wish to alienate the<br />

alleged violator – after all he is a<br />

customer. However on the other<br />

hand, the holder of rights is also<br />

a customer. For the organiser it’s<br />

a thankless situation, however he<br />

should not remain inactive. He<br />

should sit each party down for<br />

discussion, and in the case of evident<br />

infringement the violator<br />

should be required to desist in<br />

continuing previous actions –<br />

when this order is not carried out,<br />

the organiser should not allow<br />

continued participation for the<br />

duration of the exhibition. This is<br />

the very least that one can expect.<br />

EXHIBITION<br />

PERSONALITY IAAPA EUROPE<br />

Interview:<br />

Frank Lanfer<br />

Andreas Veilstrup Andersen<br />

is leaving. Karen Staley<br />

is arriving. We met up<br />

with the still Executive<br />

Director of IAAPA Europe<br />

and his designated successor<br />

at the IAAPA-Expo,<br />

and conducted a short interview<br />

with both.<br />

Karen, you were up<br />

until now, together with<br />

Andrea Kolar, responsible<br />

for the EAS exhibition.<br />

What were your duties?<br />

Karen Staley: I was already working for IAAPA<br />

earlier, and when in 2004 the merger with the Euro<br />

Attractions Show took place, I was to unite both<br />

exhibitions as harmoniously as possible. This also<br />

entailed explaining to members where we came<br />

from, what we want, and how we can best achieve<br />

our objectives together.<br />

In the earlier years there were a number of<br />

resentments about the IAAPA influence. Could<br />

the situation be placated?<br />

And despite all this you have decided to<br />

leave IAAPA?<br />

Andreas Veilstrup Andersen: Although I would<br />

have liked to remain for a longer period with IAAPA<br />

Europe, especially as we still have so much to do<br />

for the future, but I simply couldn’t say no to the offer<br />

from Sweden. It’s like coming home, once a park<br />

operator, always a park operator. I’m really looking<br />

forward to my new role as General Manager at<br />

Liseberg.<br />

Karen Staley: The EAS exhibition was already<br />

a good product, when it was taken over by IAAPA,<br />

but we were able to formalise all matters somewhat,<br />

and internationalise. Membership of IAAPA Europe<br />

and with that of the international umbrella organisation<br />

is a supplementary membership. We definitely<br />

do not want to compete with the national associations<br />

with which we, in almost all cases, have a<br />

good and continually growing relationship. Furthermore<br />

I wish to emphasis that we follow a European<br />

agenda and therefore we are loyal to our<br />

members.<br />

Did you receive the tempting offer from the<br />

<strong>Park</strong> Manager Mats Wedin personally?<br />

Andreas Veilstrup Andersen: That would have<br />

been very simple. No, I was chosen from more than<br />

100 candidates. But naturally I have a good relationship<br />

with Mats, and I did have already a good<br />

relationship with him during my time at Tivoli in<br />

Copenhagen.<br />

Karen, you also speak exelent German. How<br />

did that come about?<br />

Andreas, have things changed over the past<br />

years?<br />

Andreas Veilstrup Andersen: Oh yes, these<br />

days there are a lot more products, better press<br />

communication, new advanced training measures<br />

such as for example safety seminars, and happily<br />

more members. When I took over the position three<br />

years ago, there were 500 member companies;<br />

today IAAPA Europe unites 800! We are therefore a<br />

stronger and influential part of the umbrella organisation<br />

of IAAPA.<br />

Karen Staley: Unfortunately not really perfect.<br />

But I lived in the city of Crailsheim near Stuttgart<br />

until I was 13 years old, before my parents moved<br />

to Maryland and Virginia in the USA. When I was<br />

young there, I loved to visit Hersheypark, and it’s a<br />

dream come true that I can work in the amusement<br />

branch.<br />

Dear Karen and dear Andreas, thank you<br />

very much for this interview. I wish you both a<br />

lot of success in your future duties and challenges.<br />

TROPICAL ISLANDS<br />

Tropical Islands<br />

Overnight stays at the water park in the world’s<br />

largest self supporting hall have not been an<br />

insider tip for a long time. Around the clock<br />

swimming and/or holidays in one of the many<br />

stylish beach bars even entice families as well as<br />

young adults – in particular and naturally during<br />

the cold seasons of the year, when the hall temperature<br />

hardly sinks below 25° Celsius.<br />

However without a doubt staying overnight on a<br />

sun lounger direct on the “South Seas” pool or in<br />

one of the 2 or 4-man tents in the sand dunes is<br />

not everybody’s beer. And for this reason there are<br />

really exclusive overnight stays possible since a<br />

few weeks ago, under the 107 m high hall roof in<br />

so-called standard and premium lodges.<br />

92 individual apartments will be ready by Christmas,<br />

and the premium class especially, of a 4-Star<br />

category, will leave nothing to be desired.<br />

Breakfast – as is for other overnight possibilities –<br />

will be served in some generous themed restaurants.<br />

Overnight prices vary between 98 Euro (for a normal<br />

lodge) to 169 Euro per room (for a premium<br />

lodge). In comparison: tents cost 24 to 37 Euro per<br />

person, the basic night surcharge “under the free<br />

hall construction” is 15 Euro per head (in addition<br />

to a day pass, 28.50 Euro). The teepee-tent-village<br />

continues to be in operation and there is also the<br />

first completed Novasol-holiday apartment directly<br />

near the Tropical Island dome. All in all – and in<br />

comparison to many experience baths and thermal<br />

baths – a relatively affordable short holiday in<br />

the tropics.<br />

ASTERIX IN THE MUSEUM<br />

MAGAZINE<br />

Text:<br />

Frank Lanfer<br />

A special exhibition at the Musée de Cluny has<br />

taken place for two and half months, and will close<br />

on the 3 rd of January. An exhibition that has been<br />

dedicated to the most successful comic character<br />

in Europe, a character which simultaneously is a<br />

type of national hero for the French: Asterix.<br />

On the occasion of the 50 th birthday of the comic<br />

heroes, the Musée de Cluny in Paris has exhibited<br />

the Roman “Frigidarium Thermae” that once was<br />

excavated from the northern area of ancient Gaul<br />

and is these days integrated into the museum. And<br />

even after the exhibition comes to an end, the<br />

exhibition catalogue is still available in hardcover<br />

Uderzo and Goscinny even<br />

make fun of a “work of art”<br />

which is particularly well known<br />

in France: in Asterix the Gaul a<br />

comic hints at the historic<br />

painting “Vercingetorix throws<br />

down his arms at the feet of<br />

Julius Caesar”, by Lionel Noel<br />

Royer<br />

form in various languages, for example<br />

in German for 12 Euro from<br />

Ehapa Verlag (www.ehapa-comiccollection.de;<br />

ISBN 978-3-7704-<br />

3378-0). In the exhibition as in the Asterix<br />

in the Museum catalogue, there<br />

are countless treasures previously<br />

unpublished from the private<br />

archives of the families Goscinny<br />

and Uderzo. Among them are the<br />

original drafts and sketches from<br />

Albert Uderzo, and manuscripts<br />

from René Goscinny. Photos from<br />

the history of origin of the comic<br />

success, an in-depth chapter about<br />

the architecture that can be seen in<br />

the comics and pictures, historic<br />

paintings and graphic interpretations,<br />

round off the overview of the<br />

huge comic success on 48 pages<br />

in format DIN A4.<br />

EUROPA-PARK<br />

For the winter period Europa-<strong>Park</strong> has once again<br />

thought up something very special as compensation<br />

for the closed rides during the cold period of<br />

the year, and has engaged an additional and temporary<br />

attraction – the “Bellevue” Ferris Wheel from<br />

showman Oscar Bruch. The back park area “Island”<br />

was chosen as an ideal location, where all<br />

other attractions, with the exception of the coaster<br />

“blue fire”, are also open during the winter period.<br />

<strong>Park</strong> guests can enjoy a 55 metres high round trip<br />

while drinking their glogg in one of the 42 almost<br />

closed cabins until the 9 th of January, with the<br />

exception of the Christmas days.<br />

HEIDE-PARK<br />

Europa-<strong>Park</strong><br />

There have been speculations about the next<br />

large investment at Heide-<strong>Park</strong> (Merlin Entertainments)<br />

for a long time. But even the interim<br />

confirmed rumours that there were intentions to erect<br />

the highest coaster<br />

in the world with a<br />

150 metre height<br />

proved to be unfounded.<br />

Nevertheless there<br />

will be a mega attraction<br />

for Heide-<br />

<strong>Park</strong> in 2011, and<br />

one can say even for<br />

the whole of Germany:<br />

the first B&M<br />

Dive Coaster in the country will be erected there!<br />

Although with a length of 476 m it will be the second<br />

shortest B&M coaster of all times following the<br />

“Oblivion” at Alton Towers, even the only 350 m<br />

long Dive Coaster in England has convinced park<br />

guests for over 12 years, so one can really be happy<br />

about the new adaption at Heide-<strong>Park</strong>. The<br />

coaster at Heide-<strong>Park</strong> will be named “Krake”, will<br />

have a track difference of 40 m, and as in England,<br />

will have a tunnel (with a track difference of 54 m).<br />

But this will be phenomenally designed and will<br />

give the passengers, 6 in each row, the illusion of<br />

dropping down the throat of a huge octopus. After<br />

a few moments in pitch darkness the survivors will<br />

be expelled by an imposing water effect. An Immelmann<br />

and a Camelback follow on the next track<br />

stretch before the station is reached once again.<br />

Additionally there is to be an impressive water<br />

section on the park lake, known from substantially<br />

larger constructions of this type in the USA, hence<br />

the name “Krake”.<br />

Different to earlier plans, the “National Roller<br />

Coaster Museum of America”, in short NRCMA,<br />

has not been able to bring its own building<br />

designs to reality, with available funds being<br />

only sufficient for a type of barn construction<br />

without windows and without an appealing<br />

exterior design.<br />

For many years money has been gathered from<br />

private donations, particularly from coaster fans,<br />

but it was finally the 25,000 US-Dollar donation<br />

from Gary and Linda Hays, owners of the Cliff’s<br />

Amusement <strong>Park</strong> in Albuquerque, that made construction<br />

possible. And that was more urgent than<br />

ever as there had been many exhibits gathered<br />

that have to be displayed – or at the very least<br />

appropriately stored. An adequate exhibition is<br />

not possible, but without a doubt the situation is<br />

better than nothing. This shows however that<br />

unfortunately even in the USA, where the culture<br />

of amusement receives much stronger support<br />

and appreciation than for example in Europe and<br />

especially Germany, where theme parks and fairgrounds<br />

are still not considered noteworthy by the<br />

educated classes, is not considered worthy of<br />

sponsorship.<br />

Additionally aggravating also is that the states still<br />

have to accrue cultural contributions from private<br />

or alternatively economic initiatives. And so the<br />

idea and the financial support of the Coaster<br />

Museum is a purely personal issue that the state<br />

doesn’t have anything<br />

to do with, and definitely<br />

not in a monetary<br />

aspect. And that’s the<br />

way it is in a free enterprise<br />

system: no better<br />

than a socialistic system,<br />

both of which<br />

every now and again<br />

struggle with which<br />

culture belongs to<br />

mankind and which<br />

doesn’t.<br />
