It is a well-known fact that complaints<br />

from residents can sometimes affect<br />

opening hours of a fair event, or restrict<br />

the use of music equipment.<br />

What strange ideas can be produced by the<br />

desire for quiet could recently be seen in<br />

Paris where, apart from other ride attractions,<br />

the giant Propeller "V-Maxx” lured the<br />

public to the summer Fete Foraine des Tuileries.<br />

Its passengers were fairly astonished<br />

to have a Plexiglas bubble lowered over<br />

their heads prior to being taken up to the<br />

sky. The transparent bubbles stifled the<br />

screams usually made by passengers on<br />

attractions like this, thereby preventing visitors<br />

to the adjoining park and to a nearby<br />

museum from being disturbed. As loud announcements<br />

over the microphones or music<br />

are not very welcome at this event, "V-<br />

Maxx” owner Cohen took this unusual measure.<br />

The sight of the passengers’ heads<br />

behind the transparent noise protection and<br />

watching them ride without hearing any joyful<br />

cheering, but only the hissing from the<br />

rotating element, was a strange and spooky<br />

experience.<br />

A Ferris Wheel originally domiciled<br />

in Germany has returned to Europe<br />

after a stopover in the USA.<br />

It’s the Mondial wheel, which toured<br />

throughout Germany with the Cornelius<br />

firm, before being operated as an attraction<br />

at the Alabama-Theme <strong>Park</strong> in<br />

the USA for a number of years. The Elegant<br />

Wheel Company Ltd (Keith Emmett<br />

Jnr. & John Parrish) has brought<br />

the Ferris Wheel back to Germany.<br />

Having been duly renovated and newly<br />

painted, the "Elegant Wheel” was<br />

presented in Blackheath, England. ■<br />

WATER-WALKINBALLS<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Norman Vogt<br />

The probably largest Water-Walkingballs attraction<br />

may well have been presented at this<br />

year’s Backfischfest in Worms, where the<br />

water balls rolled in a large permanent fountain-equipped<br />

basin.<br />

It was the idea of the showman and Water-Walkingballs<br />

operator Stefan Becker and the Worms<br />

market authorities to use the fountain basin, built<br />

several years ago at the entrance area to the<br />

Backfischfest, and not the usual mobile basin.<br />

As a result, the colourful water balls could be<br />

clearly seen even from the main entrance. As a<br />

Worms’s novelty, the water spectacle was constantly<br />

in heavy demand especially, quite naturally,<br />

by the kids.<br />

There was only one drawback for Stefan Becker<br />

and his staff. Due to the large surface area, they<br />

sometimes had to walk long distances in their<br />

protective rubber clothing; for example when the<br />

time inside the balls paid for by the individual<br />

kids was over, and the ball was inconveniently at<br />

the other side of the basin. This looked unintentionally<br />

funny. Due to its great success however,<br />

Water Walkingballs operator Stefan Becker<br />

said with a smile on his face, "this is free live<br />

entertainment for spectators.”<br />

KALEIDOSCOPE<br />

HOT<br />

Fully air-conditioned<br />

confectionaries stall at the<br />

Kreuznach Jahrmarkt<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Norman Vogt<br />

On the third weekend in August, the high<br />

pressure system named “Achim” made<br />

temperatures in Germany rise to almost<br />

40 degrees.<br />

The unusual heat also affected the showmen,<br />

with all open air events suffering from<br />

tropical temperatures, and most of the fairgrounds<br />

standing empty up until the<br />

evening hours. Among the hottest places in<br />

Germany was Bad Kreuznach, where the<br />

fair event coincided with this very heat<br />

wave. Due to the extreme temperatures, the<br />

refrigeration systems frequently failed to<br />

cool drinks adequately, and at a number of<br />

slush ice machines the display often read<br />

"error”, "reset”, or "fault”, as the sweltering<br />

heat made the thermostats go crazy.<br />

Especially affected were the sweets booths.<br />

A showman from Worms, who presented his<br />

confectionery stall at the Kreuznach<br />

Jahrmarkt, came up with a particularly<br />

clever solution to the problem: he covered<br />

the whole open sales area with a specially<br />

made transparent foil, with an air-conditioning<br />

system inside this area protecting the<br />

goods. The sweets were then simply sold<br />

through two openings for serving the goods<br />

and collecting the money. A clever idea! ■<br />

Text & Photos: Helmut Bresler<br />

Alfred Störzer from Höchstadt/Aisch<br />

has thoroughly modernised his Mack<br />

dodgem track to meet the demands of<br />

the future.<br />

In addition to a new paint job presenting<br />

speedy racing car motifs and new cars<br />

on the track, Alfred Störzer has also invested<br />

in a modern LED lighting system.<br />

The programme offers different effects in all colours<br />

according to a 15–minute rotation scheme. The modernisation<br />

will be completed by a new backflash, which<br />

is currently a simple tarpaulin, but will be assembled<br />

from solid segments, and is to surprise visitors with<br />

new lighting effects in the future. Incidentally, the 2-pillar<br />

dodgem track has an interesting past; it used to be<br />

presented at the largest Volksfest in the world, the Munich<br />

Oktoberfest, under the management of the Zierer<br />

firm. The touring schedule of the Störzer dodgem track<br />

mainly includes venues in Northern Bavaria and<br />

events in Nürnberg and the surrounding region. ■<br />

GALACTOR COMEBACK<br />

Text:<br />

The Hofmann firm<br />

converting the “Galactor” into<br />

the “Vogeljakob”<br />

After Renoldi’s “Star World”<br />

had been rebuilt as the “Höllenblitz”,<br />

and went on to travel<br />

through the mine in the spring<br />

of 2007, it did so minus the<br />

large characteristic outside<br />

figure. “Galactor” had gone<br />

into retirement and had been<br />

put into storage. Yet now the<br />

former 'landmark' will make a<br />

comeback in a new outfit!<br />

During our visit to the workshop<br />

of the Hofmann firm in Bad Rodach,<br />

in the northernmost corner<br />

of Bavaria in early September,<br />

the dismantled figure had been<br />

loaded on three transports, with<br />

its torso standing in the outdoor<br />

area, and all the other parts inside<br />

the big hall. New shoes<br />

were being fitted, a female staff<br />

member was sewing together a<br />

large jacket, and braces were<br />

being tried on. After a fire at the<br />

Renoldi’s Bremen premises – in<br />

which also the 18 metre tall figure<br />

weighing 33 tons was damaged<br />

– the process of restoring<br />

and redesigning it had moved<br />

apace. Its first venue will be the<br />

Almhüttendorf at the Wasen in Stuttgart, where the figure<br />

will entertain the guests as "Vogeljakob”, speaking,<br />

gesticulating and playing music. The head alone will<br />

perform nine different movements. Due to the heavy<br />

weight of the speaking bird sitting on its left hand, the<br />

statics of the figure had to be recalculated. But this is<br />

not the only scheduled venue, as the "Höllenblitz” is<br />

also to be visually and acoustically supported after a<br />

thematic adaptation. The original figure was built 20<br />

years ago, in 1992, for the Renoldi track "Magic Mountain”,<br />

and will now receive its third theme. The Hofmann<br />

firm, founded as a toy factory in 1878, is now a world<br />

leader in moving animated figures. Many showmen<br />

and amusement parks use their products. ■<br />

The “Galactor” had<br />

served its time, with the end<br />

of “Star World”<br />

animated horror film – with a torrent of blood and<br />

a chainsaw; all providing for a terrifying atmosphere<br />

enhanced by shocking effects. Not for the<br />

faint-hearted! The non-retractable front was covered<br />

with a foil depicting, among other creepy<br />

images, blockbuster figures such as "Hulk” or "X-<br />

Première at<br />

Bietigheim: “Flasher”<br />

With the “Flasher”, presented<br />

by the Ahrend firm at the<br />

Bietigheim horse market (31 st<br />

second example of the<br />

Mondial novelty “Turbine”<br />

Just as was the case with the prototype "Turbine”,<br />

which celebrated its première in Eindhoven<br />

in early August, there was also a slight delay<br />

in delivery of the "Flasher”. As a result, the<br />

NEW PRODUCTS<br />

“Flasher”:<br />

in detail and in action<br />

originally scheduled appearances in Darmstadt<br />

and Heilbronn had to be cancelled, and even the<br />

Crange Fair in Herne had to do without this novelty<br />

attraction. In the end, the little town of Bietigheim<br />

in Baden-Württemberg was chosen to be the premiere<br />

venue. After a successful technical inspection<br />

carried out by the TÜV Süd on the Mondial<br />

premises in the Netherlands, the transports set out<br />

in the direction of Bietigheim, where there were<br />

four relatively relaxed days left for build up. There<br />

was only one minor problem: due to the wide flight<br />

radius, a section of the front of the neighbouring<br />

Walkthrough-construction "Omni” could not be unfolded,<br />

so the first two letters of the name sign had<br />

to be lowered. The colour plan of the "Flasher” (silver<br />

and blue) as well as several details of the paintwork<br />

strongly resemble those of an Austrian beverage<br />

manufacturer, whose primary product purportedly<br />

"gives you wings” – undoubtedly appropriate<br />

for the ride experience offered. Moreover,<br />

numerous scantily-clad women are displayed on<br />

the backflash, along with motifs from the world of<br />

motorsport. The two gondolas are painted silver,<br />

with the 10 orange seats per gondola providing a<br />

noticeable contrast. Only the two propellers<br />

above the gondolas have each been painted in a<br />

different colour. According to Thomas Clare, who<br />

operated the "Flasher” on site, the name sign in<br />

the centre and the two lighting masts in the station<br />

area, which were missing on the première fairground,<br />

will be delivered and installed before<br />

long. The "Flasher” was very well received by the<br />

public in Bietigheim, and it was interesting to see<br />

that the ride was very popular with both the younger<br />

and older generations. From Bietigheim, the attraction<br />

went on to the Wiesenmarkt in Eisleben,<br />

the largest Volksfest in Central Germany. The tour<br />

schedule for the rest of the year includes, among<br />

other venues, the Winterdom in Hamburg. ■<br />

WILD MOUSE<br />

New spinning mouse<br />

for Bufkens & Florens<br />

Text & Photos: Ton Koppei<br />

The “Wild Mouse” that the<br />

Belgian showman partners<br />

René Bufkes and<br />

Nicolas Florens received<br />

in the summer of 2012, and<br />

subsequently presented<br />

in Turnhout, was the second<br />

delivery of a compact<br />

rotating mouse from<br />

French manufacturer<br />

CeDeal.<br />

The first example of the CeDeal coaster, built in<br />

Portugal, was also delivered to Belgian, where it<br />

is operated by Marc Bufkens. This latter example,<br />

called "Bad Trip”, was built up at the Lunapark<br />

in Guerande, France, throughout the summer<br />

months.<br />

A third example from this series is destined for<br />

the Dutch Hendriks-Hinzen firm, which will present<br />

the coaster under the name of "Crash Test”<br />

in an unusual design. Unfortunately the coaster<br />

could not be presented at the Tilburg Fair as<br />

originally planned, due to a considerable delay<br />

in delivery.<br />

BUMPER BOATS<br />

The “Bumper Boats” from<br />

Thomas and Fabian Klar<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Rolf Orschel<br />

With the “Bumper Boats” the showman enterprise<br />

of Thomas and Fabian Klar from<br />

<strong>Berlin</strong> has been presenting an attraction<br />

similar to a water dodgem, where children<br />

can cruise on water in little rubber boats.<br />

Last year, inspired by similar attractions in a<br />

number of amusement parks, the young<br />

showmen decided to give up their "Walking-<br />

22


Waterballs” to rebuild the existing construction<br />

to transform it into the "Bumper Boats”.<br />

The children can now cruise the six existing<br />

one-seat boats with electric motors themselves,<br />

through the shallow 10 x 10-metre water<br />

basin. The motors are powered by a regular<br />

car battery. The capacity of the batteries<br />

provides for several hours of continuous operation,<br />

and their padded covers serve as<br />

seats. For embarking and disembarking, the<br />

boats are pulled to the edge of the basin with<br />

a boat hook. A continuous electricity supply<br />

for the motors is switched on externally so<br />

that the children can fully concentrate on<br />

steering the boats running<br />

at a very low<br />

speed. The rubber<br />

boats are made in China<br />

and, as they are inflatables,<br />

they are capsize-proof<br />

and unsinkable.<br />

Crashes are gently<br />

cushioned due to the<br />

boats being filled with<br />

air so that the children<br />

can safely cruise on the<br />

water alone or race<br />

against each other. ■<br />

Up to 6 boats can ride<br />

simultaneously in the 10 x 10<br />

metre basin<br />

In the late 1990s, Lange’s predecessor, Wolfgang<br />

Ahrens, was investigated<br />

on the suspicion of corruption.<br />

Even though this could not be<br />

confirmed due to lack of evidence,<br />

the Bremen city<br />

authorities had become increasingly<br />

aware of the (possible)<br />

temptations and seductions<br />

inherent to this position.<br />

This resulted in the decision to<br />

replace fairground directors<br />

after a number of years henceforth,<br />

to prevent corruption.<br />

Back then, the vacancy was<br />

taken over by Claudia Lange –<br />

initially on a provisional basis<br />

and later officially. In the beginning,<br />

most of the showmen were sceptical<br />

about a woman filling this position. "It took some<br />

time until they got used to it, as showmen are often<br />

quite conservative,” Claudia Lange recently<br />

told the Bremen Weser-Kurier in an interview on<br />

the occasion of her pending farewell, in which<br />

she also commented on the issue ‘keeping a distance<br />

from showmen’. "This has never been a<br />

problem for me. If I wasn’t friends with individual<br />

showmen, I could not do this job objectively.”<br />

To give no rise to any suspicions, Claudia Lange<br />

always took at least one colleague with her<br />

on fact-finding visits to other major Volksfest<br />

events throughout Germany. As Bremen fair-<br />

SPECIAL SECTION<br />

The new Bremen<br />

Fairground Director since mid-<br />

September: Raimund Klug (33)<br />

ground director, she was not only responsible for<br />

the large Freimarkt, but also for its smaller version,<br />

the Osterwiese, held in the same location<br />

around Easter, as well as the (not exactly unimportant)<br />

Bremen Christmas Market.<br />

The Freimarkt 2012 will be the last event still<br />

planned by Claudia Lange, and she will make<br />

her own clearly noticeable and distinctive mark<br />

on the event, which has been characterized<br />

mainly by repeatedly daring location changes of<br />

rides and tracks in the past – even of regulars<br />

participants – to give the Freimarkt a new overall<br />

image – but at the same time retaining the fixtures<br />

of the Bremen Freimarkt. Together with her<br />

team, she even managed the difficult task of devising<br />

and realising new thoroughfares required<br />

because of the new construction of "Halle 7” on<br />

the Bürgerwiese (during her term in office). "That<br />

was not easy, as this meant that there was considerably<br />

less space available for the Freimarkt,”<br />

she told the Weser-Kurier.<br />

All in all, Claudia Lange did a top job as fairground<br />

director of one of the largest Volksfest<br />

events in Germany – which nobody or only few<br />

can deny. This opinion is also reflected in the official<br />

statement, the Bremen city authorities made<br />

on the request of the Kirmes & <strong>Park</strong> Revue,<br />

"After more than one successful decade in her<br />

position as Bremen fairground director, Claudia<br />

Lange changed to the Senate for Environment,<br />

Housing and Transport in early July 2012. During<br />

the last few years, she and her team have<br />

succeeded in shaping the Bremen event, such<br />

as Osterwiese, Freimarkt, and the Christmas<br />

Market into top German events. As Mrs. Lange<br />

has also planned the Freimarkt 2012, she will accompany<br />

its build up on-site, helping her successor<br />

in words and deeds, showing him the ample<br />

and difficult task the position as fairground<br />

director entails. In reply to questions about Claudia<br />

Lange’s successor, the Bremen city authorities<br />

briefly answered: "The 33-year-old Raimund<br />

Klug, living in the Bremen region, will succeed<br />

Claudia Lange as fairground director from mid<br />

September 2012.” Thus a smooth transition<br />

seems to be guaranteed. Claudia Lange’s final<br />

quote in the Weser-Kurier interview was: "To mark<br />

the occasion of my farewell, this year’s Freimarkt<br />

will be particularly attractive”.<br />

To this end, the last Bremen Freimarkt planned<br />

by Claudia Lange will once again present a number<br />

of novelties and relocations. One striking<br />

change will await visitors already at the (main)<br />

entrance to the Bürgerweide-fairground, where<br />

the first attraction on the right will no longer be<br />

the traditional "Cafe Schultze” – as has been the<br />

case for decades – but the "Almhütte” from the<br />

Howey’s “Happy Sailor”<br />

will return to its old Freimarkt<br />

site<br />

A gingerbread heart is<br />

wrapped around the “Bremen<br />

Roland” on the market square<br />

for the Freimarkt opening<br />

Renoldi firm, the old site of which will be occupied<br />

by a "beverage outlet/snack booth” according<br />

to the site plan – no name given as yet. The<br />

"Cafe Schulze” however will probably not be built<br />

up at this year’s Freimarkt, as it is not mentioned<br />

in the official list with 22 engaged prominent gastronomic<br />

operations (including among others<br />

"Etagencafe”, "Cafe Keese”, Heitkamp’s "Mühle”<br />

or the "Riverboat”). For the first time, Johann<br />

Hinzen KG will present an attraction on the traditional<br />

Ghost ride site with an annually changing<br />

occupancy; namely its multi-storey "Haunted<br />

Mansion” with gondolas running below the<br />

tracks. In the sector of classic Funhouses "Freddy’s<br />

Company” from the Hofmann-Jehn firm will<br />

celebrate its Freimarkt première. The attraction,<br />

which has been introduced only this summer<br />

and promises "non-stop laughing” will occupy<br />

the site Hempen’s "Big Bamboo” held last year.<br />

The 6-D-Show-Theatre "The Game” from Ronny<br />

Weber will be another novelty at the Freimarkt,<br />

built up on the site occupied by Kollmann’s "Future<br />

World” last year. The "parade site” for Funhouse<br />

constructions (first top-end site after the<br />

entrance) in the Klangbogen area has been allocated<br />

to "Der große Irrgarten” from the Rasch<br />

firm this time, and the "Mäuse-Circus” from<br />

Brambach-Luch as well as the "Rotor” from<br />

Pluschies (in the same location as last year and<br />

the year before) are the attractions in the Funhouse,<br />

show and Ghost Ride sector presented<br />

at the Freimarkt 2012.<br />

novelty in the operator list – and built up in the<br />

same location as the Suspended "Euro-Coaster”<br />

in 2011. It will be interesting to see what impression<br />

this coaster with rotating gondolas will make<br />

in this location with its "short” side forming the<br />

entrée. Further coasters presented at the<br />

Freimarkt will be the "Fünfer-Looping” (Barth),<br />

"Wilde Maus” (Kinzler), and the indoor-construction<br />

"Höllenblitz” (Renoldi) – all retaining<br />

their usual sites – just as two other "major attractions”,<br />

the water ride from the Löwenthal firm,<br />

and the Ferris Wheel from Steiger oHG. There will<br />

also be three novelties among the round rides,<br />

namely Aigner’s "<strong>Park</strong>our” celebrating its<br />

Freimarkt debut, as are the "Big Spin” from Deinert<br />

and the "Devil Rock” from Hanstein. While the<br />

"<strong>Park</strong>our was allocated the top-end site after the<br />

water ride (last year: "Breakdancer”), the "Big<br />

Spin” can be encountered on the 2011 site of the<br />

"Round Up”, and the "Devil Rock” will take last<br />

year’s site of the "Power Tower”. Other round<br />

rides built up will be the "Breakdancer” (Dreher),<br />

"Happy Traveller” (Gack & Co.), "Wellenflug”<br />

(Hanstein) and "Troika” (Heine KG). After a onetime<br />

relocation last year, Howey’s "Happy Sailor”<br />

will return to its traditional site of many years –<br />

and that is just as well.<br />

The contingent of major rides at this year’s<br />

Freimarkt will include "Booster Maxxx” (Hoefnagels-Denies),<br />

"Airwolf” (Eberhard), "Flash”<br />

(Weber), "Hot Shot” (Dölle), "Top Spin”<br />

Freimarkt novelty:<br />

Hinzen’s “Haunted Mansion”<br />

will be presented for the first<br />

time<br />

were approved from 1,141 applications received<br />

for this year’s Freimarkt. Two rides, both regular<br />

guests for years, will be missing on this year’s<br />

Bürgerweide-fairground (for different reasons);<br />

namely the "Krake” and the Shake "Commander”.<br />

As to issues controversially discussed on the<br />

sidelines and behind the scenes of the<br />

Freimarkt: while the initial big stir caused by a<br />

discussion on "minimum wages at the Freimarkt”<br />

started by local politicians during the event last<br />

year has in the meanwhile subsided, the question<br />

as to whether, how and to what extent the<br />

showmen should contribute to the costs for the<br />

renewal of the ramshackle power supply system<br />

at the Bürgerweide-fairground, has been a permanent<br />

topic all the year. The showmen are fighting<br />

back, as they fear being forced to pick up<br />

the bill for this scheme in the shape of increased<br />

fees.<br />

INFO<br />

The 977 th Bremen<br />

Freimarkt will be open<br />

daily (19 th October to 4 th<br />

This year, the Bremen main railway station,<br />

through which almost every Freimarkt visitor<br />

walks on their way to the event, is the prize<br />

winner of the competition "Germany’s most<br />

customer-friendly station” in the category<br />

“large city” hosted by the "Allianz pro<br />

Schiene” (alliance per rail). Pointed out as<br />

main reasons for the decision were the "attractive<br />

entrance portal”, "lively interior in a<br />

friendly, bright hall”, as well as "customerfriendly<br />

staff”. The jurors will certainly not<br />

have inspected the station during the<br />

Freimarkt event, where the forecourt in particular,<br />

located behind the exit in the direction<br />

of the Bürgerweide-fairground has not<br />

been a pleasant sight for years. This area<br />

has developed into quite a meeting point for<br />

Freimarkt visitors extensively pre-partying<br />

prior to the Freimarkt visit, leaving behind<br />

rubbish and broken glass. This is not a<br />

pretty sight for "normal” Freimarkt visitors –<br />

but unfortunately cannot be prevented. ■<br />

The cry “Off to the Wasen!” – can<br />

and most important festival in<br />

Baden-Württemberg begins on<br />

Last year’s visitor figures were – weather related<br />

to the "golden autumn” with temperatures<br />

up to 26 degrees – very positive. The official goahead<br />

for the 2012 presentation is on Friday the<br />

28 th September, when at 7 p.m. Stuttgart’s Lord<br />

Mayor Dr. Wolfgang Schuster will open the 167 th<br />

Cannstatt Volksfest with the traditional tapping of<br />

the keg in the Schwaben Bräu-tent from operator<br />

Michael Wilhelmer. The fairground will already<br />

open at 3 p.m. on that day. In addition to many<br />

well known and proven operators, there will also<br />

be a (manageable) number of novelties in the<br />

showman sector – and there is also a new tent.<br />

Actually the tent is more of a house: named<br />

"Württemberg-Haus”, offering a total of 1,000<br />

seats on two levels plus a beer garden – and the<br />

new tent operator is called Marco Grenz. The<br />

construction will be located in the immediate vicinity<br />

of the fruit pillar – the landmark of the Volksfest.<br />

The new publican describes his gastronomy<br />

with the words "Swabian tradition with a<br />

modern touch”, and wishes to spoil his guests<br />

with dishes typical of the region, an extensive<br />

wine list, as well as a varied music programme.<br />

FROM ONE DAY TO 17 DAYS<br />

The Cannstatt Volksfest has its longest duration at present, when<br />

considering its earlier history.<br />

In the 19 th century the event was presented for one single day, somewhat<br />

later three days, then four, and from the late 1920s in the 20 th century there<br />

were five Volksfest day celebrations. After the Second World War at the<br />

beginning of the 1950s the period was extended to 10 days, then 12, and<br />

since 1972 to 16 days duration. Since 2007 the Fest lasts for 17 days, as<br />

the opening was moved to a day earlier, from Saturday to Friday.<br />

■<br />

the Stamer family, which didn’t receive approval again, and had<br />

to make way.<br />

A focus on tents later, as initially we wish to devote time to the rides<br />

and constructions on the festival grounds. New is the family coaster<br />

"Willy der Wurm” from Frank Roos that will close the present gap<br />

in the supply of kiddie attractions. Adults naturally are also able<br />

to take part in the ride. First time at Stuttgart is the 6D-show-spectacle<br />

"The Game” from Ronny Weber, who has been able to put<br />

together a remarkable tour route in his second season again, and<br />

will be appearing at the Bremen Freimarkt and the Hamburg Winterdom<br />

after Stuttgart. Initially the ride with the jumping gondolas<br />

was planned at Stuttgart in the round ride sector – the season’s<br />

novelty "Voodoo Jumper” from the Schäfer firm. However the operator<br />

cancelled the Wasen- guest appearance – quite possibly<br />

he had been made aware that there would probably be problems<br />

in being approved. Last year the "Space Roller” was located on<br />

this site from the Jolliet firm, which, after the cancellation of the<br />

ride type "Smashing Jump” – at least as far as is known at time of<br />

copy deadline of this edition of the Kirmes & <strong>Park</strong> Revue – is<br />

planned to be located on the same site again this year.<br />

The prominent ride novelty at Stuttgart is the "Gladiator” from<br />

Remo Kriek. The propeller attraction from manufacturer Mondial<br />

with the company name of "Turbine” had celebrated its première<br />

shortly before the Wasen-schedule at the Frankfurt Herbstdippemess.<br />

The construction is planned to be placed in the righthand<br />

street after the fruit pillar – and on the left side there. The<br />

"Gladiator” will be in direct competition with the very successful<br />

"Booster Maxxx” from Hoefnagels-Denies at the Cannstatt Volks-

The site map of the<br />

Cannstatt Volksfest (as of:<br />

11 th September, 2012)<br />

fest. And about three weeks before the Wasenstart,<br />

the organiser in.Stuttgart Veranstaltungsgesellschaft<br />

mbH made a decision that surprised<br />

everyone: the Ahrend firm did get approval<br />

as substitute – with the "Flasher”, which is<br />

structurally identical to the "Gladiator”. Earlier<br />

the organiser had been confronted with – in addition<br />

to the cancellation of the "Voodoo Jumper”<br />

– another rejection from the Fleur firm from<br />

France with its Freefall Tower "Countdown”. And<br />

with that there will be a double edition of the Mondial-propeller<br />

this year (as well as the "Booster<br />

Max” with a similar ride pattern), as was the case<br />

in 2011 with a similar double edition made possible<br />

by the approval of the structurally identical<br />

large swings "XXL” and "Konga”. But so be it.<br />

And where is what located? Fact is that due to<br />

the late approval of the "Flasher” the original layout<br />

had to be intensely revamped. The situation<br />

at time of copy deadline on the 11 th September<br />

was as follows: Kriek’s "Gladiator” remains on its<br />

already mentioned location behind the fruit column,<br />

and the site of the "Booster Maxxx” at the<br />

front area of Straße A has also not been<br />

changed. The "Flasher” on the other hand will be<br />

placed in the planned area for the "XXL” (Denies<br />

& Kipp) on the (top) site in Straße D. The "XXL”<br />

will therefore be located on the corner site between<br />

B-Straße and Straße 5. The "Space Roller”<br />

from Jolliet has to make way there, and will be<br />

placed again on the thankless location right at<br />

the end of Straße D. In other words exactly where<br />

it stood in 2011 and where this year the "Voodoo<br />

Jumper” was to be built up. So far – so complicated.<br />

The actually planned site for the<br />

"Countdown” (diagonally opposite the "Europa”-<br />

Wheel from Kipp, at the exit to the parking area),<br />

where in 2011 the "Konga” swing from Küchenmeister<br />

hardly received any attention due to the<br />

spot – will remain unoccupied following the cancellation<br />

of the attraction. A merry situation indeed,<br />

moving rides around shortly before the<br />

start of the festival, where in the end there will<br />

naturally be winners and losers. And if there are<br />

other changes by the beginning of the Volksfest<br />

– we will naturally report about the situations in<br />

our review of the event. Aside from the propeller<br />

constructions in triple form, the mixture of the rest<br />

of the ride, Funhouse, Ghost Ride and coaster<br />

attractions is not bad – even if there is a lot of<br />

repetition to last year. "Teststrecke”, "Spinning<br />

Racer” and "Wilde Maus” are the three large<br />

coasters this year. In the list of rides there are, in<br />

addition to the regular participants, also the<br />

"Flipper” from Hugo Levy for the first time, and<br />

an encore appearance for the Hopser "Disco-<br />

Fieber” from Danny Schramm, following its successful<br />

première last year at Stuttgart. Additionally<br />

there are also, among others, 5 classic Funhouse<br />

attractions, 2 labyrinths, 2 Ghost Rides –<br />

and not to forget the Ferris Wheel from Bruch and<br />

Kipp, as well as the water attraction from Löwen-<br />

will be managed by the Stuttgart restaurant operator Marco Grenz,<br />

who has been running the traditional Stuttgart "Alte Kanzlei” successfully<br />

for 10 years. The new host has enhanced the "Württemberg-Haus”<br />

on two levels by offering cosy niches instead of the<br />

usual beer benches, and a trendy champagne bar. As novelty at<br />

the Cannstatt Volksfest there are also quality wines from 43 wineries<br />

available on the beverage list, and the menu offers everything<br />

from Swabian onion roast to a half a duck with red cabbage and<br />

potato dumplings, right up to grilled salmon portions on wild<br />

mushroom-cream pasta, in a wide range of culinary delicacies.<br />

And there’s no Volksfest without its supporting programmes – here<br />

the most important of them: on Friday the 28 th September, the official<br />

opening takes place in the Schwaben Bräu-festival tent. On<br />

Saturday the 29 th September, the "Traditional Morning” takes place<br />

in front of the fruit pillar with music, dancing, and a moderator. On<br />

Sunday the 30 th September a church service will be held at 10 a.m.<br />

in the Schwaben Bräu-festival tent, and 11 a.m. is the start of the<br />

large paradegoing to the Cannstatt Wasen. The Volksfest hot air<br />

balloon competition begins on Wednesday the 3 rd October at 3<br />

p.m.. The family days with reduced prices are on the 4 th and 10 th<br />

of October. Closure and highlight is the large music-fireworks display<br />

on Sunday the 14 th October from 9:45 p.m. – the finale of the<br />

167 th Cannstatt Volksfest. And the dates for 2013 have already<br />

been decided: in the upcoming year the Volksfest will take place<br />

from the 28 th September to the 14 th October.<br />

On Monday, 15 th October,<br />

some 122,000 Hersfeld residents<br />

and many guests from<br />

near and far will once again<br />

celebrate the 8-day Lullusfest,<br />

the oldest Heimatfest in<br />

Germany. The nationally<br />

renowned fair is a showcase<br />

event for the city, just as a<br />

football team in the German<br />

premier league would be for<br />

other locations.<br />

Lollsfest ever”. The showman attractions<br />

– more than ever before – will<br />

Accompanied by the impressive battle cry "Enner,<br />

zwoon, dräi – Bruder Lolls", or "One, two, high-tech constructions, the event concept also<br />

be built up on limited space. In addition to speedy<br />

three – Brother Lolls”, the Lullus bonfire will be lit focuses on family-friendly attractions, offering an<br />

precisely on the stroke of 12 of the clock on Lolls- all inclusive experience appealing to all generations<br />

alike – from grandchildren to grandparents.<br />

the market square dates back to a medieval custom.<br />

The "Fierche” was the symbol of the "Lullus-<br />

According to a rotation scheme, the "Bellevue”<br />

and taxes during the festival. Moreover, the Lullus which was approved for its first appearance at the<br />

bonfire is also of practical use. In low temperatures,<br />

a stroll across the fairground is perfectly suit-<br />

on tour for 18 years, celebrates its 10 th Lullusfest<br />

event already during manufacture, and has been<br />

able for warming up. According to an ancient custom,<br />

children throw chestnuts into the fire and enularity,<br />

and a ride providing passengers with a fan-<br />

anniversary this year. It enjoys unflagging popjoy<br />

their bursting in the embers. This cherished tastic view, is simply a must for all Hersfeld residents.<br />

The build up on extremely limited space<br />

custom is an essential part of the Lullusfest and<br />

well worth preserving, as it contributes to atmosphere<br />

and emotions that the public inextricably vehicles travelling through the pedestrian precinct<br />

works very well in the meantime, with the transport<br />

ties to the event. Even though increased security – enthusiastically noted by passers-by, and even<br />

measures have caused changes in Bad Hersfeld applauded by the fans. Without even having to<br />

The “Fierche” is a symbol<br />

of the Lullusfest<br />

However, as the two events will overlap this year,<br />

the Ferris Wheel staff will have a break between<br />

the Schueberfouer in Luxembourg and the Lullusfest.<br />

The time will be used to paint the supports –<br />

in the same colour.<br />

Despite being presented in a simple version due<br />

to the lack of space, the "Wilde Maus” (Münch) will<br />

provide pure ride fun for the whole family. The attraction,<br />

as well as the dodgem track from Distel,<br />

will arrive at the Lullus directly from the Munich Oktoberfest.<br />

The season novelty will be the 22-metre<br />

over-the-top wwing "Intoxx” (Pandel), in which<br />

passengers will be subjected to 3 g at maximum<br />

speed. Speedy ride experiences can also be enjoyed<br />

in the "High Impress” round ride (Oberschelp),<br />

which had celebrated its successful Lolls<br />

première four years ago. "Night Style” (Armbrecht)<br />

with its horizontal, vertical, and diagonal inversions<br />

will provide visitors with more than just a surge<br />

of adrenaline. Moreover, the "Breakdance” (Grünberg),<br />

a ride hit that last appeared at the Lullusfest<br />

five years ago in 2007, will guarantee a stomach-churning<br />

ride experience. There will be another<br />

Lolls première in the Funhouse sector with<br />

the funniest construction site in the world, the<br />

"Krumm und Schief Bau” (Hartmann), coming to<br />

Bad Hersfeld with a climbing and obstacle course,<br />

slides, a glass and mirror labyrinth, and other effects.<br />

The simulator "Fantastical Trip” (Kunze) was<br />

approved and engaged again after its successful<br />

debut in 2000. Children will be able to enjoy the<br />

mini dodgem track "Car for Kids” (Wegener) – another<br />

Lolls debutante, the water ride "Die Bootsfahrt”<br />

(Barth), an appropriate alternative for the<br />

youngest guests, and the "Piratentrip” (Schultze),<br />

another for small visitors to be built up opposite<br />

the "News Café”. The "Circus-Circus” (Berger)<br />

built up at the Lingg monument, and the children’s<br />

attraction "Fantasia” (Bodem) will round off the selection<br />

of kiddie rides. Further Lolls novelties will<br />

be the dart booth "Robin Hood” (Winter), the concession<br />

stall "Promitreff” (Merkl), and the "Goldener<br />

Westen” (Müller) laser shooting attraction. The<br />

gastronomic sector will be represented by the<br />

"Thüringer Feuerhütte” (Geibel) offering fried<br />

sausages and Currywurst in eight different grades<br />

of spiciness, and the "Flammlachs” (Traber). After<br />

a break of a year, the "Vegetarische Spezialitätenmühle”<br />

(Roie) will offer vegetarian specialities<br />

such as Hungarian Langos. "Blumenkohl im<br />

Bierteig” ("cauliflower in beer dough”) (Stockmar),<br />

and pretzels (Plesser) will also be on offer. Naturally,<br />

the market square will also accommodate<br />

well-known and traditional meeting points, such<br />

as the Bulldozer, the shooting gallery, as well as<br />

numerous snack and confectionery booths.<br />

All in all, 50 operations will be represented at the<br />

traditional Heimatfest, 14 of them making their de-<br />

The Lullusfest 2012 site map<br />

(subject to change)<br />

but, 12 approved to the Lollsfest according to a<br />

regular or irregular rotation, and 24 being regular<br />

participants. Thus 52 % or more than half of the<br />

participants have been changed, compared to the<br />

previous year. As a result the fairground will have<br />

a completely new look. The fact that so many<br />

showman attractions can be accommodated on<br />

only 10,500 square metres is due to precise site<br />

management with CAD planning and site measuring<br />

to the very centimetre. Manoeuvring their attractions<br />

one-to-one according to the plan is always<br />

a big challenge for the showmen. The planer<br />

and organiser Wilfried Roßbach, "Mister Lolls”<br />

as the locals call him, is always extremely relieved,<br />

once build up has been completed and all attractions<br />

occupy their sites.<br />

The lighting of the Lullus bonfire and the procession<br />

on Lolls Monday (15 th October) will be the highlights<br />

of the Heimatfest, the motto of which will be<br />

"Wir sind Lolls ... seit 1160 Jahren”. Further highlights<br />

will be the Lullus bric-a-brac market with 130<br />

sales stalls on Wednesday (13 th October) and the<br />

open shopping Lolls-Sunday (21 st October), when<br />

the local retailers with their ample product choice<br />

will also open from midday to 6 p.m. On Lolls-Sunday<br />

at 9 p.m. a fireworks display accompanied by<br />

music will be held on the tower of the nearby<br />

Stadtkirche church. Due to an ample supporting<br />

programme, the Volksfest will be a real highlight,<br />

which will start off with a marathon with thousands<br />

of runners on Sunday morning (14 th October).<br />

There will be a Punch and Judy show almost daily,<br />

and on the occasion of the "Lollsfestival” on Thursday<br />

afternoon (18 th October) a music theatre for<br />

children will give performances on the Linggplatz.<br />

Visitors will also be able to enjoy the rock band<br />

"Take Five” during the evening programme from<br />

8.15 p.m. The Lolls festival will be sponsored by<br />

the VR-Bank Bad Hersfeld-Rotenburg. To cut pollution<br />

from traffic emissions, a free park and ride<br />

service will be available on Wednesday and Sunday.<br />

tended to the evening hours by the "Lollsticket”.<br />

As a special motivation to leave the own car behind,<br />

passengers will receive a price reduction.<br />

Souvenir collectors will enjoy a new Loll pin again<br />

this year showing typical Lullusfest symbols. The<br />

Volksfest event will be closed on October 20 th with<br />

a family day (with reduced prices) and a lottery<br />

draw; the first prize being a new Mercedes A-class<br />

car.<br />

The Lullusfest is held in honour of the city’s<br />

founder, the Mainz Archbishop Lull (710 to 786), a<br />

pupil of holy Bonifatius, known as the Germans’<br />

apostle, who founded the future imperial abbey<br />

Hersfeld. The church festival was created to mark<br />

the canonisation of Archbishop Lull in 852 attended<br />

by pilgrims travelling to the shrine in the newly<br />

built abbey. The pilgrimages resulted in an important<br />

market with merchants, jugglers and cheerfully<br />

celebrating participants. While the pilgrimages<br />

became less important, the Lullusfest developed<br />

into a Volksfest event. Nowadays, the<br />

Lullusfest is deeply embedded in the hearts of<br />

people throughout the entire region. In October<br />

the "Lolls”, as the locals call their market, will take<br />

place, and a visit to the event is simply a must: No<br />

excuses accepted, the entire region has a heart<br />

for the Hersfeld event! The festival opening has a<br />

special noteworthy feature: it is the only Volksfest<br />

event in Germany that begins on a Monday. With<br />

the Loolsfest a new calendar, the "Lollsyear” begins<br />

for the "Herschfeller”, who divide the year into<br />

"before the Lolls” and "after Lolls”.<br />

The Lolls-flyer has now a QR-Code, providing<br />

smart phone owners with fast access to the Lolls<br />

website with all relevant information. To mark the<br />

anniversary, the assortment of promotional articles<br />

has been extended by among others, fan<br />

scarves and carrier bags, as well as a commemorative<br />

publication. Moreover, the North Hessian<br />

transport consortium will contribute a quite unusual<br />

action to the event, a "train baptism” will be<br />

held in Bad Hersfeld during the Lolls-week. While<br />

the first visitor survey was conducted as early as<br />

1993 and the first "open house day” was held in<br />

1995, a backstage tour will be organised this year.<br />

Even though marketing campaigns were not<br />

known back then, the organisers in Bad Hersfeld<br />

always recognised what was good for the event.<br />

Due to the revised and supplemented Lolls security<br />

concept, the use of liquid gas will now be subject<br />

to strict surveillance and completely prohibited<br />

around the Konrad-Duden library due to the<br />

short distance to the building. Showmen placed in<br />

this area will have to switch over to the more expensive<br />

but safer electricity alternative. To this<br />

end, the power distribution on the market square<br />

See you at the Lullusfest<br />

in Bad Hersfeld<br />

was renovated and the street lights were separated<br />

from the fairground. Apart from radio commercials,<br />

poster advertising and press advertising,<br />

the marketing concept now also provides for huge<br />

poster advertising in the surrounding region. On<br />

the weekend before the Lolls event, there will even<br />

be a promotion stall with "fire-master” Udo Rossbach<br />

and showmen advertising the top event with<br />

actions and flyers in Fulda.<br />

During the planning phase for the Lullusfest 2012,<br />

a ride operator had filed an objection against his<br />

cancellation and the approval of a competitor.<br />

However, as the court confirmed the plan of the<br />

Lullusfest committee, the originally designated<br />

track ride will be built up. It goes without saying,<br />

that the action "Lolls ohne Prolls”, or "Lolls without<br />

lager louts” will be continued, with the Diakonie<br />

(social welfare institution) serving non-alcoholic<br />

cocktails at its juice<br />

stall "Saftig” in front of<br />

the Lingg monument.<br />

Preparations are going<br />

at full swing for the<br />

meeting of the German<br />

market and Volksfest<br />

directors held in the<br />

civic centre of Lolls<br />

Wednesday to Friday. Fifty Volksfest organisers of<br />

large city events, such as the Munich Oktoberfest,<br />

the Cannstatt Wasen, the Crange Fair, and the<br />

Hamburg Dom, or prestigious traditional events<br />

such as the Bad Dürkheim Wurstmarkt, the Soest<br />

Allerheiligenkirmes, or the Eisleben Wiesenmarkt<br />

have been invited, as was a delegation from the<br />

Schobermesse in Luxembourg. The Chairmen of<br />

the two German Showman Umbrella Associations,<br />

the Deutscher Schaustellerbund e. V. and the Bundesverband<br />

Deutscher Schausteller und Marktkaufleute<br />

e. V. will also be participating. Topics on<br />

the agenda will be, among others, security concepts,<br />

statutory noise, GEMA-fees (Society for<br />

Musical Copyright Enforcement), and marketing<br />

activities. The Lollsfest differs from other Volksfest<br />

events due to its tradition, the identification between<br />

the residents and their event, and the showman<br />

attractions. The start these days remains as<br />

in the past, Monday – a unique feature in Germany.<br />

The attempt of individual showmen to change this<br />

to the weekend is utter nonsense. After all, nobody<br />

in the Rhineland would think of holding the legendary<br />

Carnival Monday Parade on "Carnival Sunday”.<br />

The Lolls has atmosphere and emotions –<br />

and the product "Lullusfest” means living culture.<br />

BOOK<br />

SPECIAL SECTION<br />

There are many commemorative<br />

publications on<br />

the occasion of milestone<br />

anniversaries of a good<br />

event. They are often<br />

dominated by historical references<br />

and written by<br />

scientific authors. Reinhard<br />

Rauche, who has immersed<br />

himself in the history of the<br />

oldest Heimatfest in Germany,<br />

and has introduced a coffee-table book to<br />

mark the occasion of the 1160th anniversary, has<br />

chosen a different approach. His book is dedicated<br />

to the showmen – celebrated in text and photos.<br />

Mr. Rauche, what are your connections to the<br />

Lullusfest?<br />

Reinhard Rauche: It is very much a part of my life<br />

and has dominated it for almost seven decades. I have<br />

been working on the Lullus festival committee for 35<br />

years, and have therefore been able to actively shape<br />

the event. We continue the tradition, but at the same<br />

time we have to face the challenge of keeping the<br />

event attractive for all classes of the population.<br />

What is your profession?<br />

I have been a newspaper publisher for 25 years,<br />

and these days I own a wholesale and retail firm for Italian<br />

wines. In addition, I am in charge of the ‘Lolls-Promotion’,<br />

helping to improve the promotional programme<br />

for the Lullusfest.<br />

How do you evaluate your contact with the<br />

showmen?<br />

It is a good, close and amicable relationship. As<br />

I have known many operations and participants for<br />

many decades and visit several Volksfest events a<br />

year, it is quite normal to build up personal relationships.<br />

I am altogether pleased, and certain that I have<br />

gained a great deal of quality in my life, thanks to my<br />

colleagues from the showman industry.<br />

Why did you choose the distinctive approach<br />

of dealing with history and the present on an equal<br />

footing?<br />

Because I am firmly convinced that the present<br />

and its familiar faces mean much more to readers than<br />

meticulously researched historic facts. Naturally they<br />

are included, but for me they are merely the preface to<br />

a present day Lolls visit, and the reader has to know<br />

that a good festival requires good showmen.<br />

What is the reason for the success of the<br />

Lullus festival?<br />

There are three mutually dependent pillars, which<br />

can only lead to success if they are equally strong: a<br />

committed city administration with a highly experienced<br />

and competent fairground director, loyally returning<br />

fans within the population who want to celebrate a<br />

traditional and, at the same time, modern Volksfest –<br />

as well as highly effective and innovative showmen. ■<br />

publication<br />

BOCHOLT<br />

Text:<br />

Michael Petersen<br />

The days are gradually getting shorter, the leaves of the trees are<br />

changing to an aurora of magnificent colours, and people are enjoying<br />

the last warming rays of the sun. Autumn has come and the<br />

fairground season is drawing it to a close with a large number of<br />

first-class autumn Volksfest events. During this season, the Bocholt<br />

Fair, which is traditionally held around the third Sunday of October<br />

(this year 19 th to 22 nd ), numbers among the top events in Germany.<br />

With the <strong>Berlin</strong>er Platz, the town centre of Bocholt boasts a spacious<br />

area, suitable for accommodating large ride attractions. From there the<br />

fairground spreads out across the Schanze, past the Bocholt Town Hall


up to the Gasthausplatz, incorporating any free<br />

space into colourful entertainment. The Bocholt Fair<br />

is held in high esteem by the visitors due to its attractiveness,<br />

its ample variety and, naturally its size.<br />

"The Bocholt Fair is a cult and quite simply a 'must'”<br />

– this is also the annual proclamation of thousands of<br />

Dutch visitors, who have chosen Saturday as their Bocholt<br />

fairground day. In addition to the large rides, the<br />

Dutch in particular appreciate the vast number of fairground<br />

gastronomic operations offering an ample variety<br />

of dishes. This is the main difference between<br />

German and Dutch Volksfest events. While our neighbours<br />

traditionally prefer ride fun and games of<br />

chance, the Germans particularly enjoy the culinary<br />

delicacies offered on our fairgrounds.<br />

The Bocholt Fair will start into its four event days at<br />

full speed, with the popular "Happy Hour” and reduced<br />

ride fares that especially entice 'ride junkies'.<br />

A spectacular fireworks display provides a fantastic<br />

start on the very first day. During the opening ceremony<br />

inside the beer tent, the rides outside run at full<br />

speed. It is a terrific atmosphere, enhanced by the<br />

unparalleled blaze of light reflecting in the glass<br />

façade of the town hall and the water of the Aa River.<br />

The Stadtmarketing Verwaltungs-Gesellschaft mbH,<br />

with its General Manager Ludger Dieckhues, is responsible<br />

for this fair event, and Markus Kock has<br />

been the fairground director for years. Well-known<br />

and traditional attractions are skilfully mixed with new<br />

ones. As a result the Bocholt Fair is never boring and<br />

a particularly attractive experience every year.<br />

The <strong>Berlin</strong>er Platz is divided into three wide fairground<br />

streets offering sufficient space for large ride<br />

attractions, Ghost Ride and the Funhouse attractions.<br />

In the western section of the <strong>Berlin</strong>er Platz, the<br />

"Wellenflug” (Wendler), the Musik Express "Disco Jet”<br />

60


(Heitmann), and the "Phoenix” from Ralph Gusowski<br />

will entice the public this year. The centre street will<br />

be occupied by the "Wonder Wheel” Ferris Wheel<br />

(Bruch/Schneider), Häsler’s "Psychodelic”, Schäfer’s<br />

"Shake”, the dodgem track "Drive in” (Schmidt) and<br />

– as a novelty for Bocholt – Goetzke’s "Rocket”. Moreover,<br />

the eastern fairground street will accommodate<br />

the "Breakdance” (Bruch), Kaiser’s "High Energy”, the<br />

"große Geisterbahn” (Schütze) as well as the "Highway<br />

Nr.1” dodgem track (Schneider), and the indispensable<br />

classic "Octopussy” (Markmann) will once<br />

again be built up on its "special site”. The Meckenemstraße,<br />

running to the west of the <strong>Berlin</strong>er Platz, will<br />

also provide visitors with fun and entertainment.<br />

While Fischer’s "Toboggan” will offer visitors 'malicious<br />

joy', Klaasen’s will attract the younger generation.<br />

Built up on the access road to the Bayernfesthalle<br />

will be the "Looping the Loop” (von<br />

Olnhausen), the Simulator "New World 3000” (Welte)<br />

and the major ride "Turbo Force” from Schäfer. Those<br />

leaving the <strong>Berlin</strong>er Platz crossing the Aa River in the<br />

direction of the town centre will first encounter the<br />

second novelty for Bocholt, the "Voodoo Jumper”<br />

from Schäfer. Between the Schanze and the market<br />

square in front of the town hall, visitors will be enticed<br />

by the "XXL” Swing (Denies-Kipp), the "Venezianische<br />

Pferdekarussell” (Langenberg), the nostalgic<br />

chain ride from Baese, and on the market square the<br />

"Circus Circus” (Bruch/Gründler) will be whirling<br />

around. Located slightly off the hustle and bustle on<br />

the Gasthausplatz, the beautiful "Twister” (Berghaus)<br />

will take its passengers high up into the sky. A well<br />

selected mixture of kiddie rides will perfectly round<br />

off the ample cornucopia of attractions.<br />

SHOW<br />

Birk Flea Circus at the<br />

Jahrmarkt anno Dazumal in<br />

Kommern 2012<br />

Before the eyes of the children in<br />

the first row, who were reluctant<br />

to pass on the magnifying glass,<br />

ballerina “Vroni from Munich”<br />

and her co-artistes “Reserl from<br />

Nürnberg”, and “Franzi from<br />

Hohenwart” are pirouetting with<br />

skirts flying, for one last time. At<br />

the end of their performance,<br />

they are carefully picked up from<br />

the small stage with a pair of<br />

tweezers and put into a small<br />

wooden box. Until their next performance<br />

– if all goes well, just 10<br />

minutes afterwards – they can relax<br />

in the darkness and cool off<br />

in their rest chamber.<br />

Vroni, Reserl, and Franzi belong<br />

to the revered cast of some 180<br />

female fleas in what may well be<br />

the last flea circus operated by a<br />

showman in Central Europe.<br />

Flea Circus<br />

Even though the flea circus, now operated by<br />

Robert Birk, can also be booked for various<br />

events, it makes its biggest appearance at the<br />

Munich Oktoberfest every year. As soon as the public<br />

descends upon the Wiesn, the circus director<br />

opens his small menagerie, accommodated behind<br />

a wooden front only five metres wide and held<br />

in a beautiful, old wood-slatted caravan, equipped<br />

with roof lights. It does not take long until the first<br />

short queue is waiting to enjoy the eight-minute performance<br />

in front of the wooden paybox. When visitors<br />

in the next queue ask, even while the previous<br />

performance is still running, when the next performance<br />

is to begin, Birk looks at his electronic hourglass<br />

and informs those impatiently waiting of the<br />

remaining time of the performance. Birk presents<br />

up to five performances an hour. Having been<br />

presented at the Oktoberfest since 1948, the<br />

flea circus is one of the oldest regular attractions<br />

at the event, and has long since attained<br />

cult status.<br />

Apart from the Oktoberfest, Robert Birk, who<br />

was actually a "private person” and has already<br />

feathered his nest due to his wife's successful<br />

haulage firm, appears at only a couple of venues<br />

throughout the region; the Jahrmarkt in<br />

Memmingen and the Pfaffenhofen Volksfest. In<br />

2012 however, he let himself be enticed into making<br />

a long journey for the first time. Asked to come<br />

to the 18th "Jahrmarkt anno Dazumal” at the LVRopen<br />

air museum in Kommern in the Eifel region,<br />

he immediately agreed, and from there he travelled<br />

on to Roncalli’s "Historischer Jahrmarkt” in Aachen-<br />

Kornelimünster, and then further on to the "Historischer<br />

Jahrmarkt” in Friedberg, Hesse, also<br />

organised by the Roncalli Event GmbH for the first<br />

time. The flea circus was very well received by the<br />

public everywhere, which is important for the circus<br />

director, as he presents the tiniest artists in the<br />

world at his own risk at every venue.<br />

Thus the Birk flea circus may well be called the only<br />

touring showman enterprise of this kind in con-<br />

is Marco Assmann from Lautenthal in the<br />

Harz Uplands, with his excellent flea circus performances.<br />

But just as is the case with his other wellstaged<br />

attractions modelled on historic examples<br />

– such as the "Original Übersee-Kuriositätenschau”<br />

or his illusion show "Heute Hinrichtung”, adapted<br />

from corresponding presentations at the Munich<br />

Oktoberfest and the Jahrmarkt in Kommern – Assmann’s<br />

shows can only be booked at a fee. Moreover,<br />

the Birk flea circus is the oldest flea circus still<br />

existing in Europe. According to documents, its history<br />

dates back to the second half of the 19 th century;<br />

its predecessor being "Roloff’s Floh-Circus”.<br />

Flea Trainer Bertolotto<br />

Isolated information about presentations of "trained”<br />

fleas, date back to the early 17 th century. According<br />

to Gabriele Klunkert’s doctoral thesis on<br />

"Shows and entertainment at the Leipzig Messe in<br />

the 19 th Century”, the earliest evidence of a flea circus<br />

was from the Italian scholar Ulisses Adrovandi.<br />

In a work published in 1629, he reported about<br />

a Dutchman and a Venetian who toured the world<br />

with trained fleas. Another report about a flea circus<br />

performance in Paris can be found in the "Vollständiges<br />

Materialien-Lexicon” (Comprehensive<br />

Materials Encyclopaedia) by Nicolas Lemery, in<br />

1721. As there is no further evidence of flea circuses<br />

up until the early 19 th century, they may initially<br />

have rather been just a side show among relatively<br />

frequent animal exhibitions. According to files at<br />

the Leipzig city archive, the Italian flea circus director<br />

L. Bertolotto presented fleas that, among<br />

other feats, danced, fought duels, pulled a coach<br />

and even a battleship. On his "showman flyer” advertising<br />

his travelling show, he also offered private<br />

performances: "Private performances can be arranged<br />

on request. Magnifying glasses for the shortsighted<br />

are available.” For the flea duel, Bertolotto<br />

glued miniature swords to the forelegs of the fleas.<br />

The fleas ‘attempt’ to get rid of those weapons caused<br />

the impression of a sword fight. L. Bertolotto is<br />

repeatedly called the pioneer of this kind of show,<br />

in the history of flea circuses not yet sufficiently researched.<br />

He became popular all over the world via<br />

a little book on the history of the flea and several<br />

amusing stories that he wrote in 1830, which was<br />

initially published in French and later in four <strong>English</strong><br />

editions from 1834 to 1876. The fact that just as in<br />

this publication, his full first name was never given<br />

in any other sources, such as his advertising flyers,<br />

makes it difficult to research his life story. Genealogical<br />

investigations to be found on a website, identify<br />

him as in all probability being the very Louis Bertolotto,<br />

whose name appears on a tombstone in a<br />

cemetery in Port Hope, Canada. The very same<br />

website also refers to entries in the Port Hope register<br />

of deaths, according to which Louis Bertolotto<br />

was born in Genoa in 1802. Further evidence<br />

throws light on his life from the age of about 25<br />

years, when he was already a well-travelled man.<br />

His first daughter, Emily, was born in England; his<br />

second, Elise, in Genoa in 1829.<br />

His first demonstrations of a flea<br />

circus presented all around the<br />

globe are further documented in<br />

the 1830s, in 1833 in a house in<br />

Regent Street London (his<br />

house, perhaps?), 1835 in New<br />

York, and 1844 in Toronto. He<br />

also travelled to Paris (probably<br />

Messe 1881 and 1887 (Leipzig<br />

city archive)<br />

as early as 1830, as the first edition of his book written<br />

in French suggests), Copenhagen and Moscow.<br />

In the meanwhile, Bertolotto also presented his flea<br />

circus in other German towns – in addition to his appearances<br />

in Leipzig proven by Klunkert – such as<br />

on the occasion of the Bremen Freimarkt 1842,<br />

where he erected the small flea stage in a house on<br />

Seemannstraße. For a quarter of a Thaler, visitors<br />

could watch fleas "of <strong>English</strong> origin” walking the<br />

tightrope and ballet dancing, and finally pulling<br />

small caravans in a "horse race”.<br />

Before long Bertolotto was running a renowned<br />

enterprise, but not without competitors. In 1840, the<br />

"Der Bayerische Volksfreund” newspaper, issue 17<br />

wrote: "Bertolotto, the flea trainer, has found a rival.<br />

In Kassel, a Mr. Fiarenzi from Genoa announced<br />

that he had trained ‘ants’ to march in rank and file,<br />

climb scaling ladders and storm a fortress built of<br />

sugar. They could also, on command, retreat from<br />

a fire storm, rescuing oat grains, bread crumbs and<br />

cheese chippings at the same time, so that they<br />

looked like people bringing their belongings<br />

‘tucked under the arms’ to safety. Never let it be said<br />

that our century did not produce great men: Bertolotto<br />

and Fiarenzi darkened the spirit of all times”.<br />

Flea Trainer in Germany<br />

In 1856, after the death of his first wife Julia, his remarriage<br />

in 1850 or 1851 and the birth of his son<br />

Louis Jnr. in 1851, and his daughters Emily and Elise<br />

having married in Chelsea and London, Louis<br />

Bertolotto decided to emigrate to Canada, where<br />

he found respectable employment as a steward to<br />

a Governor General who, according to records, had<br />

become quite excited about Bertolotto's flea arts.<br />

In 1859, he presented his flea circus in New York.<br />

In 1860, he lived with his second wife and Louis Jnr.<br />

in Quebec, where his daughter Ida was born. From<br />

that point on, it is not clear if Louis continued to tour<br />

his flea circus himself. In any case, he was employed<br />

as a butler to a lord, when the Governor General<br />

retired in 1861. In 1875, Louis moved to Port<br />

Hope (with his wife, daughter and son?), where he<br />

spent his last years until he passed away in 1887,<br />

living with his daughter Emily, who had apparently<br />

been abandoned by her husband. There is vague<br />

evidence that Louis Jnr. had occasionally presented<br />

his flea arts during this period. After the Bertolotto's<br />

one-time appearance at the Leipzig Michaelismesse<br />

in 1837, performances by flea trainers at<br />

the event are documented again only from 1862: in<br />

1862, 1863, and 1878 by Johann Elias Ferdinand<br />

Avé from Hamburg, a merchant and a benchmark<br />

maker by trade, who had travelled with a flea circus<br />

since the early 1860s. At the Ostermesse 1875,<br />

Carl Aufrichtig, probably coming from Lobkowitz or<br />

Vienna, presented his flea theatre at the Leipzig<br />

Ostermesse. The illustration on one of his showman<br />

flyers showed a menagerie full of flea artists: on flying<br />

trapezes, balancing on bottles, doing headstands<br />

on a swaying mast, playing the guitar, tightrope<br />

artists or as passengers hanging under a<br />

steam locomotive or running along a rope. Later on,<br />

according to his advertisement for the Oldenburg<br />

Kramermarkt 1891, Carl Aufrichtig called his enterprise<br />

"Großes Original-Europäisches Floh-Theater<br />

und Circus für Dressur und<br />

Abrichtung der Flöhe”, or Large<br />

Original European Flea<br />

Theatre and Circus for the<br />

Training and Conditioning of<br />

Fleas. In a newspaper advertisement<br />

he advertised the<br />

performance of three hundred<br />

flea artists, while at the same<br />

time reassuring still doubtful<br />

readers: "The honourable ladies<br />

and gentlemen are protected<br />

from any deserters.”<br />

"Desertion impossible” –<br />

notes like these were repeatedly<br />

found on showman flyers<br />

and newspaper advertisements<br />

from flea circus directors.<br />

Quite a number of them<br />

made appearances at the<br />

Leipzig Messe. According to<br />

Gabriele Klunkert, a flea show<br />

can be evidenced at almost<br />

every subsequent Leipzig<br />

Messe after the appearance of G. Uhlmann at the<br />

Ostermesse 1883. In 1884, it was Hermann<br />

Gaitzsch, probably coming from Hannover; between<br />

1885 and 1907 Johannes Maria Günther<br />

from Coswig with his "Paris Floh-Circus with its 300<br />

well-trained human fleas”; Georg Max Ackermann<br />

at the Michaelismarkt 1890; Friedrich Christian<br />

Blässig at the Ostermesse 1899; Leonhard Meyer<br />

at the Ostermesse 1909; Richard Hausschild from<br />

Reusrath at the Messe events between 1909 and<br />

1915, and Heinrich Tischer at the Michaelismesse<br />

1917, as well as the Ostermesse 1918. The high<br />

number of flea circus operators that are connected<br />

with the Leipzig Messe events should not obscure<br />

the fact that presentations of these "tiniest artists”<br />

have always been a mere side show compared to<br />

other animal exhibitions. On the occasion of a<br />

Volksfest, many flea circuses had initially been presented<br />

in houses located near the fairground, before<br />

their directors decided to join the showmen on<br />

the fairground with their own booths. It is of course,<br />

very much in the nature of the spectacle that the<br />

flea circus booths were comparatively small. After<br />

all, the artistic spectacle could not be watched by<br />

more than twenty to thirty spectators per performance,<br />

either with the naked eye or with a magnifying<br />

glass passed from hand to hand. After the<br />

last war, there were still several flea circuses travelling<br />

throughout Germany, even though their number<br />

had already decreased since the 1920s. The last<br />

flea circus performances may well have been presented<br />

in the 1950s – with the exception of the<br />

enterprise founded in the 19 th century, which is still<br />

operated by Robert Birk to this very day.<br />

Flea Circuses Travelled Around the Globe<br />

Just as many of his colleagues, particularly Bertolotto,<br />

the aforementioned founder of Birk’s flea<br />

circus, Roloff is said to have travelled all over the<br />

world for many decades. If the company history<br />

compiled by the previous operators of this flea circus<br />

is anything to go by, Roloff’s flea circus appear-<br />

India, and in other countries around the<br />

world. It is said that even prominent figures<br />

repeatedly admired the performing arts of the fleas.<br />

In 1898, Roloff had been given five gold pounds after<br />

a performance for the British Queen, Victoria.<br />

Even Pope Leo XIII and Emperor Wilhelm II are said<br />

to have admired the tiny artistes – probably for<br />

dancing, fighting duels, juggling balls, walking the<br />

tightrope, and pulling coaches and canons, as was<br />

suggested by a poster created by the well-known<br />

Hamburg printer, Adolph Friedländer, which also<br />

showed a picture of Wilhelm Roloff. Later on however,<br />

there is said to have also been an absolutely<br />

inglorious engagement. In an informational flyer,<br />

distributed to the public even until long after the last<br />

war, and the graphic design of which is more in line<br />

with the 1930s, the company claims not without<br />

some pride that it "had been called no less than four<br />

times to <strong>Berlin</strong>, to give special performances with<br />

its fleas for Hitler and his staff.” Another source, unverified<br />

however, mentions that there were three<br />

performances in the Chancellery of the Reich, for<br />

which the flea circus director had received a black<br />

dinner jacket together with a coat and top hat – and<br />

an additional 200 Reichsmark. Due to his<br />

deteriorating eyesight, which was certainly detrimental<br />

to the business given the barely visible tiny<br />

creatures, Roloff handed over the circus to his<br />

great-nephew Peter Mathes in 1948. The very same<br />

year the Mathes family made its first appearance at<br />

the Munich Oktoberfest – with a<br />

newly redesigned operation;<br />

specifically, the caravan and<br />

front having been significantly<br />

modified. To this very day it has<br />

appeared in this form, with no<br />

more than minor modifications.<br />

the front with the incorporated<br />

paybox and a box room behind<br />

it, was built by Popp-Fahrzeug-<br />

adjoining the side of the caravan not only accommodates<br />

the flea box and other requisite boxes as<br />

well as the small stage, but it is also the presenter’s<br />

day room from where he gives the performances<br />

through a window of the caravan. Therefore the<br />

little space inside the just 4-metre-long caravan can<br />

be used almost entirely as an auditorium. Three<br />

rows of benches, deployed all around a stage<br />

measuring not even one square metre, offer seating<br />

to some 25 spectators. In former times however, the<br />

caravan also had to serve as accomodation for the<br />

Mathes family of four. At the rear side of the small<br />

room, two bunk beds were mounted, which were<br />

folded up prior to the performances, and a small<br />

oven stood opposite the stage adjoining the side<br />

wall. To this day, there is a tiny corner cabinet in<br />

which the family kept their belongings, located at<br />

the corner to the front of the caravan. The Mathes<br />

family worked together with a Hamburg presenter,<br />

who also had to be accommodated in the small caravan,<br />

and made his bed on the benches at the end<br />

of the opening day. By day, the presenter gave the<br />

performances, for which he paid Mathes "rent”. In<br />

the evenings Peter Mathes and his wife took over<br />

the performances – on average<br />

three presentations an hour. In<br />

1972 Peter Mathes handed over<br />

the flea circus to his son Hans<br />

and his wife Ingrid. From then on,<br />

Hans Mathes – an industrial clerk<br />

in 'real life’, sacrificed his annual<br />

holiday to operate the enterprise<br />

at the Munich Oktoberfest. Due<br />

to health reasons, Hans Mathes<br />

had to give up his Oktoberfest<br />

presentations in 2002 however. Eventually, he<br />

handed over the circus to his friend Robert Birk,<br />

who had already helped out at the enterprise, and<br />

was therefore familiar with the matter of feeding and<br />

presenting the fleas. The flea circus made its first<br />

appearance under Birk’s management at the<br />

Munich Oktoberfest in 2005.<br />

Flea Circus Director Birk<br />

180 fleas accompany Robert Birk on his venues. 50<br />

of his fleas are "engaged”, as Birk calls it, all their<br />

life, which, if everything goes well, lasts one year.<br />

They are harnessed to a tiny loop, the wire of which<br />

is fastened to a small chariot, carousel or other miniature<br />

object. Even since the end of the 19 th century,<br />

the flea circus no longer uses human fleas, as<br />

thanks to improved hygiene standards, they have<br />

become hard to find. While fleas could be acquired<br />

at dog breeders and animal dealers in former times,<br />

Birk has other sources these days. The only thing<br />

he gives away, however, is that railway station cats<br />

number among his suppliers.<br />

"Only female fleas are suitable for circus performances,<br />

male fleas would be too weak for artistic<br />

stunts,” the circus director points out. "Before I can<br />

use a flea, I have to find out if it prefers high jumping<br />

or running. The ‘jumpers’ I can use for playing<br />

women’s football. They try to free themselves from<br />

small balls, shooting them with their rear legs and<br />

scoring goals.” Other running fleas pull carts and<br />

caravans through a miniature village: "Fiaker-Fritz”,<br />

"Nero” with the Roman chariot, Hans with the state<br />

coach, Bene with the dolly, 20 miniature vehicles –<br />

including many valuable heirlooms from the company<br />

history – all belong to Birk’s line-up of props<br />

SHOW<br />

village<br />

The fleas’ miniature<br />

and personalities – even the tiny carousel rotated<br />

by the "Starker Augustin”. Astonishingly, as much<br />

as 30 grams can be moved by a female flea.<br />

If the fleas are disinclined to perform, Birk asks the<br />

audience in the first row to breathe on the female<br />

artists. "This warms them up, and when it is warm,<br />

the fleas begin to fidget.” explains the director.<br />

"Normally, I carefully warm up the fleas between my<br />

fingers.” It must be at least 23 degrees inside the<br />

flea circus, otherwise the performance does not<br />

work. Therefore, the flea circus will hardly be found<br />

at a Christmas Market.<br />

Long before the first performance begins, Birk has<br />

to feed his large troop of fleas. Early in the mornings,<br />

he puts the first female on his arms. Nobody<br />

else can help him with this time-consuming feeding,<br />

as the fleas suck blood only from one and the same<br />

'donor'. Feeding and performance are the only occasions,<br />

when the fleas come out of their small storage<br />

boxes into the light of day, or to the artificial<br />

light of the circus wagon, as fleas need darkness<br />

and cannot stand any sound. In dark, small boxes,<br />

cooled to slightly below 10 degrees, they feel<br />

better than on the circus stage.<br />

What will be the future of the flea circus? For Robert<br />

Birk, who had to experience the decline of his once<br />

booming transport company, the takeover of the circus<br />

was the right decision. "Compared to the former<br />

competition, this circus operation is quite relaxing,”<br />

Birk enthuses. Martin, a good friend, assists<br />

him with the performances, son Christian<br />

occasionally also lends a helping hand, and even<br />

his four-year-old daughter can already present the<br />

female fleas' football match. "Sometimes she cries<br />

when she is not allowed to help”. This raises hope<br />

for the future of Germany’s oldest flea circus.<br />

CONFECTIONERY<br />

NASCHWERKSTATT<br />

On the last weekend in April, Peter<br />

and Jaqueline Hickman from<br />

Plauen, Vogtland, celebrated the<br />

successful première of their<br />

brand new “Naschwerkstatt”<br />

confectionery stall at the Frühjahrskleinmes<br />

the Hickmann<br />

family continues the family’s<br />

confectionery tradition in a modern<br />

style. Their grandparents<br />

and parents toured an ice cream<br />

parlour as well as specialising in<br />

selling sweets. In the 1950s, Peter<br />

Hickmann’s mother operated<br />

a caterpillar ride and a spider<br />

ride together with her brother.<br />

and a view into the interior<br />

Due to the consistent short supply that characterised<br />

the economy of the former GDR, the sweets<br />

stall was given up in favour of a dodgem track, which<br />

was later taken over by Peter Hickmann. In 1989, the<br />

Hickmann family began selling sweets once again. After<br />

the German Reunification, they renewed their<br />

contacts with their old suppliers and engaged the<br />

Freiberg ride manufacturer Peuckert to build the<br />

confectionery sales wagon “Zuckerparadies”,<br />

which was successfully operated by Jaqueline<br />

Hickmann. The hydraulically removable container<br />

trailer was built by the Pfaff ride manufacturer<br />

from Buchheim, which also carried out the functional<br />

interior furnishing according to the wishes<br />

and specifications of the Hickmann family. The<br />

moulded plastic front was lovingly decorated with<br />

more than a dozen Heinzelmännchen (the famous<br />

'house gnomes' of Cologne, who according<br />

to legend performed the chores of the city's idle inhabitants).<br />

The whole construction<br />

was painted with airbrushes. The interior<br />

walls are made of painted aluminium<br />

and the work surfaces of<br />

high-quality steel. Both a cool and a hot counter have<br />

been installed for the presentation of the goods. The<br />

canopy and the bays can be hydraulically elevated or<br />

moved back. The product choice mainly includes<br />

chocolate coated fruits, many different kinds of nuts,<br />

gingerbread hearts, ice cream and other sweets and<br />

goodies. The “Naschwerkstatt” requires a 9 x 4 metre<br />

ground area, is 5 metres high, has electrical requirements<br />

of 30 kW, and can be built up within about 20<br />

minutes.<br />

The 50 th German-French Volksfest in <strong>Berlin</strong> was<br />

held from 15 th June to 15 th July. The anniversary<br />

event was opened by the French Ambassador<br />

Maurice Gourdault-Montagne, together with<br />

<strong>Berlin</strong>’s Lord Mayor Klaus Wowereit.<br />

True to the motto "Love <strong>Berlin</strong>”, a touch of French<br />

savoir vivre was brought to the central fairground<br />

at the Kurt-Schumacher-Damm for 31 days. The<br />

German-French Volksfest came into being after<br />

the signing of the German-French Friendship<br />

Agreement by General de Gaulle and Chancellor<br />

Adenauer in Bonn. According to the organiser, the<br />

<strong>Berlin</strong> Showman Association e. V., the event<br />

unique in Germany is also the largest Volksfest in<br />

<strong>Berlin</strong>. To mark the milestone anniversary, more<br />

than 150 showman operations were engaged, and<br />

the built-up attractions were certainly worthy of a<br />

Volksfest in a large city. The first-class top attractions<br />

presented to the visitors this time were the<br />

"Eclipse” Propeller (Korten), "Rock & Roller Coaster”<br />

(Vorlop), "Frisbee” (Robrahn), the turbulent<br />

looping ride "Devil Rock” (Hanstein), the "Poseidon”<br />

water ride (Heitmann-Schneider), and the<br />

go-kart track (Fackler). They were joined by the<br />

"Bayern-Rutsch´n" (Schierenbeck),<br />

the "High Explosive”<br />

coaster (Vorlop), "Schlittenfahrt”<br />

(Noack), "Apres Ski-Party”<br />

(Fackler), the "Walk of<br />

Fame” labyrinth (Schürmann),<br />

the "Verrücktes Hotel”<br />

(Burghard), and the "Tourist<br />

Wheel” Ferris Wheel (Kriek).<br />

Other ride and Funhouse attractions<br />

as well as concession<br />

stalls from several <strong>Berlin</strong><br />

A LOOK BACK<br />

50 th German-French Volksfest in<br />

<strong>Berlin</strong><br />

showmen and other regular participants were two<br />

dodgem tracks (Noack and Müller), the "Breakdance”<br />

(Dinali), "Magic” (Hainlein), Wave-Swinger<br />

(Barthel), "Melodie Star” (Müller), and "Tanz der<br />

Vampire” (Nitzsche). Younger visitors were able to<br />

enjoy several kiddie rides, a Jet Ride, a kiddie railway,<br />

a motor boat ride and a bungee trampoline.<br />

A number of games and concession stalls,<br />

Continental Pick stands, gastronomic, confectionery<br />

and beverage operations rounded off the<br />

cornucopia of attractions. In the centre of the fairground,<br />

the Französiches Dorf "French Village”<br />

was built up, which was operated by the<br />

Bergmann Eventgastronomie according to a completely<br />

new concept. The new city setting with typical<br />

alleys and matching flair featured many green<br />

spaces and was planted with blooming flowers as<br />

well as ornamental trees and shrubs. A 14-metre<br />

tall "Moulin Rouge” towered over the appealing<br />

and cosy scenery. The gastronomic operations<br />

offered an ample choice of<br />

French specialities and beverages,<br />

accompanied by chansons<br />

and French accordion<br />

sounds from the music pavilion.<br />

To mark the anniversary, the<br />

<strong>Berlin</strong> Showman Association<br />

had come up with a special idea<br />

to thank visitors. As a way of expressing<br />

appreciation to all<br />

coming to the fairground turning<br />

50 during the 4-week event, visitors were presented<br />

a 50 voucher upon presentation of their<br />

identity card. On 8 th July, the actual birthday of the<br />

Volksfest, free lottery tickets were distributed to the<br />

visitors between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m., the prize being<br />

an iPhone 4S. Further highlights of the event<br />

were four long fireworks displays held on every<br />

Saturday evening and the French National Holiday<br />

(14 th July) when the sky over the central fairground<br />

was illuminated in the French national colours.<br />

Moreover, Family Days with fare prices reduced by<br />

half at all rides and tracks were held every<br />

Wednesday.<br />

Financially, the 50 th German-French Volksfest was<br />

a bitter disappointment for the participating showmen;<br />

most of them called it a "failure”. Apart from<br />

the European Football championship and continuous<br />

rain on almost all the peak days, the wellknown<br />

problems at the central fairground were responsible<br />

for the failure. To this day, the only on-<br />

Fairground impressions<br />

site signposts pointing out the Volksfest are the<br />

Ferris Wheel dummy from the Showman Association,<br />

a huge poster and "Zentraler Festplatz”<br />

direction signs. Moreover, the fairground is still<br />

hidden away behind a high earth wall. At least a<br />

100-metre section of the earth wall is to be carried<br />

away between now and next year's event, so that<br />

the fairground can be seen from the Autobahn.<br />

Even though the long-time, tireless commitment of<br />

the <strong>Berlin</strong> Showman Association is honoured by<br />

this measure to a certain extent, it does not<br />

change anything as regards the 'wrong location<br />

policy' of the political decision makers. ■<br />

Many novelties could be encountered at the<br />

Landshut Bartlmädult (17 th to 26 th August) – the<br />

second largest annual Volksfest in the city apart<br />

from the Frühjahrsdult. Unfortunately, business<br />

on the Grieserwiese fairground was rather slow,<br />

due to the spell of hot weather.<br />

Even though the originally engaged ride novelty<br />

"Flasher” could not celebrate its première in Landshut<br />

due to a delay in completion (it was replaced by Zinnecker’s<br />

"Streetfighter” Swing), there were nonetheless<br />

as many as three debutantes namely the large<br />

"Rock & Roller” Coaster (Vorlop), the unique "Reggae”<br />

(Winter), and a Musik Express from the north<br />

(Fa. Baier). They were joined by the dodgem tracks<br />

from Sonntag and Kollmann, the "Magic House”<br />

(Kutschenbauer), Simulator "Fantastical Trip” (Kunze),<br />

"Circus Wheel” Ferris Wheel (Rosai), Hopser<br />

"Bavaria Dance” (Thalkofer), Twister "Hawaii Swing”<br />

(Neigert) and, after a break of several years, the magnificent<br />

"Hexentanz” (Markmann).<br />

A novelty among the gastronomic operations was Felber’s<br />

"Bier-Alm”, an interesting alternative to the two<br />

large beer tents. Additionally, the large merchant Dult<br />

offered a high-quality product choice. The supporting<br />

programme included the opening Dult church<br />

service, seniors' day, lost-items auction, fireworks<br />

display accompanied by music, and the Family Day<br />

with reduced prices. On this day, children were also<br />

able to enjoy a magic show, a kiddie make-up event<br />

and a clown, as well as stilt-walkers drawing much<br />

attention as they went on their rounds across the fairground.<br />

Who would have thought it possible<br />

five years ago? It is once<br />

again trendy to celebrate Kiliani<br />

at the Talavera! With 1 million<br />

guests, new record-breaking<br />

visitor numbers were achieved,<br />

according to Würzburg city authorities.<br />

"We have left the vale of tears”, said<br />

showman Heiner Distel, putting it<br />

very much in a nutshell. Twenty or<br />

thirty years ago, the 17-day event<br />

used to be a guarantee of turnover;<br />

then came the steep decline. The<br />

event gained new attractiveness with the approval of<br />

the Stadl patron, controversially discussed at the onset.<br />

Together with the engagement of prominent<br />

restaurateurs from the local gastronomic scene, this<br />

turned out to be the revitalizing element. There was a<br />

new Stadl patron, offering a perfect rustic-styled ambience<br />

– yet unfavourably placed on the sidelines of<br />

the fairground. His operation really has to be built up<br />

in the centre of the fairground! Most dominant is and<br />

always has been Michael Hahn with his large beer tent,<br />

who has pushed the Kiliani event to the very top and<br />

always has a fully occupied tent, even on weekdays,<br />

thanks to the good music programme. A skilfully laid<br />

out fairground with 75 showman operations left nothing<br />

to be desired – including three attractions from the<br />

show and Funhouse sector; namely the "Geister-<br />

Schloss” with surprising effects, the boxing-show, as<br />

well as the "Crazy Outback” Walkthrough construction.<br />

The veteran car parade on the final Sunday was an unexpected<br />

success. This year, there were even more<br />

people on the fairground, leaving hardly any room on<br />

the festival streets. A big compliment to the city of<br />

Würzburg must be acknowledged in the slogan appearing<br />

on the event's official poster: "Meine Stadt.<br />

Mein Volksfest”.<br />

The “the largest fair on the<br />

Rhine” in Düsseldorf<br />

Text: Michael Petersen<br />

Photos: Ralf Schmitt, Heiko Schimanzik<br />

The largest fair on the Rhine was opened with<br />

the traditional tapping of the keg and two perfect<br />

blows of the mallet by Düsseldorf’s Lord<br />

Mayor Dirk Elbers. At that point in time, the<br />

avowed fairground fan Elbers was still in good<br />

spirits and cheerily announced, “We all know<br />

that St. Peter has always been a fairground<br />

fan”.<br />

Unfortunately, this statement turned out to be<br />

wrong this year. The 111 th Rheinwiesen Fair was<br />

not spared from rain and even threatened to be<br />

entirely "washed away”. Indeed, due to continuous<br />

rain, the start of the event was pretty dismal;<br />

a bitter irony, given the contrasting good fortune<br />

of the city's Fortuna Düsseldorf football team,<br />

which has recently made it back into the first division.<br />

The showmen grew increasingly disappointed,<br />

with the owners of uncovered rides suffering<br />

most from the wet weather. Visitor attendance during<br />

the first weekend fell far short of expectations,<br />

and poor weather forecasts kept non-resident visitors<br />

from coming to Düsseldorf. After all it is not<br />

possible to just go to the Rheinwiesen Fair in one’s<br />

own car, as there are no parking possibilities in the<br />

direct vicinity of the fairground, and considering<br />

the forecast, only a few families were prepared to<br />

put up with using public transport. While business<br />

was poor during the first two opening days, it was<br />

highly satisfying on Sunday, but very modest<br />

again on Monday and Tuesday due to repeated<br />

rainfall and low temperatures. Wednesday was the<br />

first really good day for all showmen, but after a<br />

pretty modest Thursday, the event entered a fan-<br />

A LOOK BACK<br />

Larger than ever:<br />

Füchschen brewery tent<br />

Düsseldorf novelty: the<br />

“Voodoo Jumper” from Schäfer<br />

tastic "finishing straight”. As was the case during<br />

the previous years, the day of the fireworks display<br />

was the day with the highest visitor attendance.<br />

More than 500,000 visitors came to the fairground,<br />

and another 500,000 people lined the bridges and<br />

the banks of the medieval city centre. That was the<br />

Rheinwiesen at its best, masses of free-spending<br />

visitors besieged the largest fair on the Rhine, as<br />

used to be generally the case in the good old<br />

days. That was Düsseldorf as the showmen love it<br />

and as visitors know it. In the end, the organiser<br />

reported some 4 million visitors – an increase of<br />

about 400,000 visitors on the previous, also somewhat<br />

rainy year.<br />

The Rheinwiesen Fair is a crowd puller in the Düsseldorf<br />

calendar of events. However, one could<br />

easily ask the question as to why the Franzosenfest<br />

(French Festival) had to be celebrated on the<br />

banks within the medieval city centre during the<br />

first weekend again. According to the local press<br />

some 70,000 visitors went to the festival, but did<br />

they also visit the Rheinwiesen?<br />

Even a good two weeks prior to the opening, the<br />

largest fair on the Rhine was very 'present' in the<br />

Düsseldorf media, with repeated and detailed reports.<br />

The Düsseldorf Express even ran a short series<br />

introducing a number of showman families.<br />

The amusing family chronicles were accompanied<br />

by historic photographic material. That was much<br />

fun and provided a distinctive contrast to the<br />

sometimes very unimaginative press coverage.<br />

Apparently, the annual "Fairground-Check” is another<br />

indispensable must. This time, there was a<br />

"horror & thrill check”, in which all the rides did<br />

well. The inevitable comparison of today's prices<br />

with those of the last four years showed that the<br />

prices on the fairground had increased only very<br />

slightly. Considering exploding energy costs and<br />

the cost of living, this is certainly a positive result<br />

for a change. It was however completely deplorable<br />

and unnecessary to rehash last year’s minor<br />

accident again. Clearly noticeable to those<br />

driving through Düsseldorf was the large number<br />

of new banners put up as eye catchers throughout<br />

the whole city. Advertising on taxis was also<br />

very noticeable, a superb and highly conspicuous<br />

advertising idea. To sum up, the advertising measures<br />

have been considerably modified and have<br />

become more effective. All that is missing now is<br />

a really good website for the event, such as the<br />

website for the Crange Fair in Herne or the<br />

Stuttgart Wasen, to name but a few.<br />

The layout of the Rheinwiesen fairground met up<br />

with our preview. Due to local peculiarities, the<br />

largest fair on the Rhine has its fixtures, such as a<br />

large number of Funhouse attractions being built<br />

up on Radschlägerstraße in order to reduce the<br />

noise level out of respect for the complaining,<br />

noise-sensitive Oberkassel residents. The large<br />

attractions, such as the "Bellevue” Ferris Wheel,<br />

coasters, water ride and Ghost Rides, as well as<br />

the beer tents retained their usual sites, apart from<br />

just a few exceptions. This year, for example, the<br />

extended "Füchschen” tent was relocated to the<br />

site of the Bayernfestzelt which is no longer pre-<br />

90


sented at Düsseldorf. Of course, almost all the<br />

concession stalls also retained their traditional<br />

sites, and this will also be the case in the future in<br />

the interest of the relevant showmen. Nevertheless,<br />

fairground architect Thomas König changes<br />

the appearance of the Rheinwiesen Fair as much<br />

as possible every year, certainly making daring<br />

decisions, but also admitting layout mistakes,<br />

even if they are sometimes not recognisable as<br />

such beforehand.<br />

This year, for example, there was a historic fairground<br />

section, which did not altogether work out.<br />

The unavoidable question in this regard is if this<br />

out-of-the-way area makes any sense at all. After<br />

all, the showman operations that followed the<br />

"Schwarzwald-Christel” in this area did not fare too<br />

well, as only a few visitors leave the main thoroughfare<br />

and turn right. Last year, not even crowd<br />

pullers, such as the unique "Toboggan” or the<br />

mega swing "Konga” were able to liven up this<br />

area. A deliberately laid out twisting course would<br />

not only help all the showmen in this section, but<br />

also provide new top end sites. Among the attractions<br />

in the historic Rheinwiesen section,<br />

which according to Thomas König will not be laid<br />

out again next year, only the looping swing and the<br />

Caterpillar Ride achieved satisfying results, as<br />

they were built up facing the Radschlägerstraße,<br />

the main thoroughfare, while the novelty "Rio Rapidos”<br />

was placed somewhat unfavourably with its<br />

back facing the course through the area. This<br />

spectacular water ride would truly have deserved<br />

a better site.<br />

With regard to the occupancy it should also be<br />

mentioned that there are some – very few, it must<br />

be said – attractions in Düsseldorf that simply<br />

have no place on this major fair due to their visual<br />

appearance. Strongly weathered fronts are unsuitable<br />

for the requirements of a modern fair and<br />

should at least be repainted. Particularly annoying<br />

for years have been a number of toilet wagons on<br />

the fairground: Having to pay 70 Cents to relieve<br />

oneself in a completely dirty toilet wagon simply<br />

will not do. Given this, as good as a showman’s<br />

offering may be, a single visit to the toilet will make<br />

the visitor immediately forget this very good, fast<br />

and friendly service, but always remember the<br />

dirty toilet.<br />

The Rheinwiesen Fair has a very good visitor mix<br />

and offers fair attractions of the highest standard.<br />

Therefore dirty toilets or construction trailer-style<br />

toilets are an absolute no-go! This requires urgent<br />

action! Moreover, one or two showmen would be<br />

well advised to empty the overflowing refuse bins<br />

in front of their attractions every now and then – it<br />

simply looks better.<br />

In a remarkably frank interview with the Westdeutsche<br />

Zeitung after the fair, fairground architect<br />

Thomas König, provided<br />

readers with a look behind the fairground<br />

scenes, commenting on<br />

the estimated visitor numbers,<br />

and expressing his disappointment<br />

with regard to a number of<br />

issues. These included the fact<br />

that it has not been possible to find<br />

an operator for a first-class gastronomic<br />

operation; and this in<br />

Düsseldorf! Due to the new security<br />

concept, which worked<br />

smoothly this year, the traditional<br />

fair had to be newly laid out. The<br />

additional costs could only be<br />

paid with the support of sponsors,<br />

according to the organiser, results<br />

are "zero Euros in the black”. Many showmen were<br />

surprised and annoyed by the strange statements<br />

by the Kinderschutzbund (Child Welfare Organisation)<br />

in the Rheinwiesen flyer, which not only set<br />

down "rules of conduct”, but also asserted that the<br />

fair was not for children under 3 years of age. What<br />

an insult, especially for kiddie ride operators! One<br />

could easily ask the question as to why the Kinderschutzbund<br />

was offered this platform. "For us, that<br />

was the lesser evil, as otherwise employees of the<br />

Kinderschutzbund would have strolled across the<br />

fairground together with the press, searching for<br />

shortcomings. This way, we ‘silenced them’ beforehand,”<br />

said Thomas König. Well, perhaps so;<br />

but what could they possibly have found? There<br />

may well be hardly any more attractive and exciting<br />

place for children than a fair event.<br />

Summary: there was marvellous sunshine, dark<br />

clouds and rain at the Düsseldorf Rheinwiesen –<br />

both concretely and figuratively speaking. There<br />

are only a few things that have to be changed to<br />

maintain the high quality standards. Advertising is<br />

heading in the right direction, with extensive advertising<br />

measures in the neighbouring cities<br />

guaranteeing high visitor attendance. After all, the<br />

Rheinwiesen could not survive from Düsseldorf<br />

visitors alone. In dry weather the Rheinwiesen Fair<br />

has once again proved its enormous potential as<br />

the largest fair on the Rhine and its excellent reputation<br />

among German fair events.<br />

■<br />

A LOOK BACK<br />

Not all attractions<br />

presented met the high standard<br />

of the Rhein-Kirmes in<br />

Düsseldorf. Also questionable:<br />

the price policy and the cleanliness<br />

of several toilet wagons<br />

PORTRAIT<br />

MAZES FROM SCHAU FOR MORE THAN 35 YEARS<br />

“Is’ ja irre”, or “It’s amazing”,<br />

as rendered in dialect, can be<br />

heard from the sound system<br />

of the Schau family. It’s all in<br />

the name and the jingle; after<br />

all, the Schaus are showmen<br />

and have specialised in<br />

mazes for more than 35<br />

years. It all started at the<br />

Hamburg Dom. Back then,<br />

newly-wed Peter Schau – descendant<br />

of one of the oldest<br />

still existing showman dynasties<br />

in the Hanseatic city –<br />

wanted to become a self-employed<br />

showman with a Walkthrough<br />

construction, as the<br />

shooting gallery of his parents<br />

could not go on feeding<br />

two families.<br />

management of Knossalla. Below:<br />

Vera and Peter Schau<br />

At the very same time, another regular participant<br />

at the Dom was thinking about retiring<br />

from "the road” for reasons of age. Herbert Knossalla,<br />

a former Wall of Death artist, had handicraft<br />

firms build one of the first post war mazes according<br />

to his plans, and successfully toured this attraction<br />

throughout Germany as early as 1957. It<br />

was not long before the glass maze was a fixture<br />

also at the Hamburg Dom. With Peter Schau, Knossalla<br />

eventually found a worthy successor for his<br />

operation. "Well, my son, see that you get the<br />

money,” he advised his young colleague once they<br />

had agreed on the takeover. The Hamburg Sparkasse<br />

bank, which had already enjoyed good experience<br />

with the Dom showmen, granted Schau<br />

the required loan to finance not only the maze, but<br />

also his winter quarters beyond the gates of Hamburg,<br />

and a new caravan for his young family. However,<br />

as moving into the cottage in the winter of<br />

1976 was out of the question, the future living room<br />

was converted into a workshop without much ado,<br />

where the now ageing maze was completely restored<br />

and carefully modernised. After all, its decoration<br />

was state of the art. The construction’s dark<br />

blue corrugated metal sheet front with yellow wooden<br />

letters and coloured fluorescent tubes were replaced<br />

by a new, flat metal sheet façade, which was<br />

to be painted and marked with a new name sign.<br />

To this end, Peter Schau engaged the artist Mike<br />

Tegen from the Holsteinischer Panker, who was still<br />

largely unknown in the industry at that time. The<br />

new illuminated letters were delivered by the Dom<br />

electrician Otto Busch. At the start of the season,<br />

the glass maze was presented in the fresh, new look<br />

of the 1970s without losing its original character. To<br />

this day, the latter has been retained, despite repeated<br />

further modernisation measures. "I am<br />

pure,” the showman explains the concept. His<br />

maze is meant to be nothing other than what its<br />

name says, and what visitors can already see from<br />

the outside. This way, there are no disappointments<br />

or unpleasant surprises. "Many visitors do not like<br />

all the shaking,” says Schau referring to the competitors'<br />

modern Walkthrough constructions. That is<br />

why his traditional attraction does without any moving<br />

staircases, rotating floors, or rolling barrels. In<br />

the long run, the Schau family were unable to completely<br />

ignore modern developments though. When<br />

an increasing number of showman colleagues<br />

ordered sophisticated new constructions from<br />

manufacturer Dietz in the early 1980s, Peter Schau<br />

also got inspired. As a result, he took the opportunity<br />

to make a trip to the Dietz factory in Ziegenhain,<br />

together with two satisfied Dietz customers from<br />

92


among his own relatives, where two brand new<br />

Walkthrough constructions were just being built;<br />

namely Finnendahl’s double-floor labyrinth "Fluch<br />

des Pharao” and the two-storey "Showboot”. The<br />

trend clearly went to larger heights, but the Hamburg<br />

showman did not like the elaborate construction<br />

of the multi-storey attractions. Even way back<br />

then, he suspected that it would become increasingly<br />

difficult to find suitable staff able and prepared<br />

to put in the required elbow grease, and with just<br />

his two daughters, there were no other assembly<br />

helpers among his own family either. That is why –<br />

together with Heinz Dietz and his son Andreas, who<br />

was still in the middle of<br />

his training at that time -<br />

he puzzled out a system<br />

to build a double-floor<br />

Walkthrough construction<br />

on a single trailer with as<br />

little effort as possible.<br />

Junior owner, Andreas<br />

Dietz, eventually came up<br />

with the ground-breaking<br />

idea of the floor and façade<br />

segments being hydraulically<br />

extended on<br />

the basis of a pulley principle.<br />

As a result, Peter<br />

Schau ordered the twofloor<br />

funhouse and labyrinth<br />

combination "Crazy<br />

Town” as the first compact<br />

construction of its<br />

kind - once again according<br />

to a draft from his house artist, Mike Tegen. The<br />

classic comic book style façade decoration was<br />

created in the Dietz factory itself, and resulted in<br />

many a subsequent order – among others, for the<br />

legendary "Psycho” and the "Omen”.<br />

With the Dietz construction, the Schau family forged<br />

new paths, with the incorporated labyrinth being<br />

only a section of the course from that time on. A<br />

rolling barrel at the exit, clearly visible from outside,<br />

which led to a crowd forming in front of the attraction<br />

whenever visitors intentionally or unintentionally<br />

performed their "tricks”, was now the central eye<br />

catcher for the first time. The rest of the course and<br />

1980: The first hydraulically<br />

extended multi-storey Funhouse<br />

from Dietz: “Crazy Town”<br />

from Peter Schau<br />

the built-in surprise effects remained largely hidden<br />

from the spectators however. After all, the days of<br />

the Italian Walkthrough attractions with their open<br />

construction were still far away. The "Crazy Town”<br />

was toured throughout Northern Germany, from<br />

Flensburg to Emden; and naturally in its home town<br />

of Hamburg three times a year.<br />

The good old glass maze was initially put into storage<br />

during this period. However, a themed Funhouse<br />

construction also had its drawbacks and required<br />

new plans for the tour schedule almost every<br />

year – except for Hamburg. Only a couple of organisers<br />

wanted to approve the same attraction<br />

several times in succession. At some point in time,<br />

the attraction even had to be re-themed. As a result,<br />

the "Crazy Town” was rejuvenated in the early<br />

1990s, mutating from a<br />

quite funny cartoon town<br />

into the mystical "Terra X”,<br />

named after a popular TV<br />

series of that time. This<br />

time, the rebuild was carried<br />

out on site with the expert<br />

help from the ride<br />

manufacturer Heinz Röhl,<br />

and the not yet so prominent<br />

electronics expert<br />

Klaus Kairies from<br />

Neumünster, who provided<br />

a matching light system.<br />

Henceforth, the balcony<br />

on the first floor was<br />

hidden by a gigantic name<br />

sign. In practice however,<br />

the oversized "X” turned<br />

out to be extremely labourintensive,<br />

and now it took<br />

an additional man to buildup<br />

and dismantle the attraction.<br />

This mistake was<br />

Another rebuild in the late<br />

1990s; “The Relikt”. In 2008 it<br />

was renamed into “Labyrinth”,<br />

which is operated by Schau &<br />

Horlbeck<br />

not repeated during another redesign into "Das Relikt”<br />

later on. The name sign was much smaller and<br />

was mounted virtually at eye level. In the meantime,<br />

Peter Schau had even put up his old maze for sale.<br />

… "But fortunately nobody was interested in it back<br />

then”, he recalls. Consequently, the showman<br />

made a virtue of necessity, and built up the once<br />

again freshly renovated glass maze each spring<br />

and summer at the Hamburg Dom, while his<br />

daughters presented the Dietz construction at<br />

venues such as Süderbrarup, Vechta, or Bruchhausen-Vilsen.<br />

Today, his daughter Jasmin tours<br />

the attraction alone with her husband Lars Horlbeck<br />

and her family, and the attraction has in the meantime<br />

once again been redesigned by Mike Tegen,<br />

and is now also presented under the traditional<br />

name of "Labyrinth”. Due to<br />

health reasons, Peter Schau<br />

and his wife are taking it<br />

easy, however. They loyally<br />

build up their traditional attraction<br />

only at the Hamburg<br />

Dom, as ever offering visitors<br />

a relatively low priced enjoyment<br />

without any gimmicks.<br />

"Naturally, this is only possible<br />

if you no longer have any<br />

debts,” says Schau. "But we<br />

get by and we make ends<br />

meet.” Indeed, his regular<br />

customers are grateful for<br />

this. By now, many of them<br />

have brought along their<br />

children and grandchildren<br />

telling: "This is the maze I<br />

have already walked through<br />

when I was a child”! ■<br />

KIDDIE RIDES<br />

SCHMÖKELS NOSTALGIE CAROUSEL<br />

In addition to a modern kiddie<br />

ride and a shooting gallery,<br />

Karin Schmökel from Eisenach<br />

also operates a nostalgic horse<br />

carousel. Built by the Thuringia<br />

Karussellfabrik Gundelwein in<br />

Wutha-Farnroda 61 years ago,<br />

the carousel for small children<br />

is a rarity these days and is one<br />

of only a few Gundelwein<br />

carousels still touring the fairgrounds.<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Rolf Orschel<br />

Up until the 1990s, these<br />

cars were on Schmökel’s horse<br />

carousel<br />

The wooden horses were lovingly<br />

restored. Right: Even a<br />

pedal car modelled on the Soviet<br />

Moskwitsch 408 was in use<br />

The carousel has been under the permanent<br />

ownership of the family for 45 years. It was taken<br />

over by Manfred Schmökel in 1967, who founded<br />

his showman enterprise with "Schmökels Kindertraum”.<br />

Despite having been carefully restored several<br />

times since then, the attraction has been largely<br />

preserved in its original condition. Apart from the<br />

organ room, which was painted by<br />

the daughter of the legendary GDR<br />

ride artist Horst Patzer, the carousel<br />

was painted with flower motifs,<br />

funny animal motifs from fairytales<br />

and animated cartoons, as well as<br />

other figurines by Willi Mathei from<br />

Steinach. The painting in the organ<br />

room and on the inner circular rim<br />

has been preserved and is covered<br />

by several layers of clear varnish at<br />

regular intervals. The rounding<br />

board pictures, worn-out by wind<br />

and weather, were newly painted<br />

with funny animal motifs<br />

matching the carousel’s<br />

character by the M & L Werbetechnik from<br />

Werningshausen some time ago. Up until<br />

the 1990s, the mounts were small wooden<br />

horses, two Ferris Wheel gondolas, and<br />

various tin and pedal cars. Except for the<br />

horses, the mounts were scraped little by<br />

little and replaced by modern animals and<br />

vehicles built by the Dietz firm in the 1990s. Ever<br />

since Manfred Schmökel passed away suddenly<br />

and unexpectedly in 1996, Karin Schmökel has continued<br />

to operate and lovingly preserve the nostalgic<br />

Gundelwein carousel, on which several generations<br />

of little children took their first rides.<br />

"Schmökels Kindertraum” is 7 metres in diameter,<br />

has electrical requirements of 4 kW, and requires<br />

one transport vehicle for relocation.<br />

The Future of the Antwerp "Sinksenfoor” Ensured<br />

Plaint against traditional Belgian fair settled<br />

Showmen and city, hand in hand for the Volksfests<br />

The Volksfests in Europe are an outstanding<br />

sign for custom and tradition, consciousness<br />

of tradition, and live culture.<br />

They bind people together regardless of<br />

borders. The city of Antwerp is considered<br />

to be one of the most worthwhile European<br />

metropolis to visit, and operates one of<br />

the largest Volksfests in Belgium with the<br />

"Sinksenfoor”, with more than 150 showmen<br />

and one million visitors annually.<br />

European Showmen’s Union<br />

Europäische Schausteller-Union<br />

Union Foraine Européenne<br />

International non-government organisation (NGO) • Established in 1954<br />

President Albert Ritter<br />

A wonderful example of the safeguard of<br />

the cultural asset Volksfests.<br />

The fact that the Sinksenfoor has been<br />

safeguarded to remain as an inner-city fair<br />

in the future is significantly due to the<br />

commitment of both the showmen and the<br />

city – they put up a fight together. And business<br />

people, restaurants and local owners<br />

"nailed their colours to the mast” for the<br />

continuance of the fair. They referred to the<br />

The Sinksenfoor: Traditional Fair in Belgium<br />

economical importance of the Volksfest for<br />

Sinksenfoor 1970<br />

the retail, hotel and gastronomy industries.<br />

The biggest encouragement however came<br />

from the fairground visitors. 17,000 people<br />

declared solidarity with the Sinksenfoor<br />

over the social network Facebook, and demonstrated<br />

their support impressively.<br />

TERMIN:<br />

ESU-Kongress<br />

in BRÜSSEL<br />

25.-26.10.2012<br />

The Sinksenfoor has had its permanent<br />

position in the historic harbour area of Antwerp<br />

since 1969. However there were always<br />

problems with the location. Already<br />

ten years ago the residents wanted to drive<br />

the popular fair out of the city area due to<br />

noise pollution. The lawsuit was unsuccessful.<br />

And this year there was another attempt<br />

by a real estate investor. Background:<br />

the city area where the Sinksenfoor<br />

takes place has developed into an attractive<br />

residential area over the past<br />

years with expensive shops, restaurants,<br />

and art galleries, and the real estate prices<br />

are correspondingly high. The fair event<br />

was in the way of the real estate investor,<br />

as he had envisioned using the festival<br />

grounds for the construction of a small<br />

harbour for private yachts, in order to increase<br />

the value of the adjacent shops,<br />

houses and apartments. Supported by a<br />

handful of local residents, he took legal<br />

action. However a week before the start of<br />

this year’s Sinksenfoor, the judge dismissed<br />

the case as arbitrary. The resulting appeal<br />

by the plaintiffs was also unsuccessful.<br />

ESU-President Albert Ritter: "Collective<br />

negotiation and solidarity are important”<br />

ESU President Albert Ritter described the<br />

common success of showmen, city, and<br />

fairground visitors as a "wonderful example”<br />

for the safeguard of the Volksfest cultural<br />

asset in Europe. "The Sinksenfoor<br />

has shown once again the importance of<br />

common action and solidarity of all involved”,<br />

emphasised Ritter.<br />

In the meanwhile the city of Antwerp has<br />

declared the festival grounds as an official<br />

event area.<br />

The European cultural asset Volksfest<br />

lives on!<br />

at Parc Astérix has a<br />

remarkably varied layout<br />

Three years ago it was already<br />

decided by Parc Astérix in Plailly,<br />

located 30 kilometres north<br />

east from the gates of Paris, that<br />

the next theme area would be<br />

Egyptian. “Asterix and Cleopatra”<br />

is one of the most successful<br />

comics in the series, and the<br />

associated films were a huge<br />

success in France a number of<br />

years ago. The drawing card for<br />

the area was to be a coaster that<br />

would definitely be different to<br />

other constructions at the park.<br />

Hence the choice became an Inverted<br />

Coaster, and B&M, as<br />

market leader in this segment,<br />

was the desired supplier.<br />

A look into the station<br />

OzIris<br />

The design concept was decided within the parent<br />

company Compagnie des Alpes, which had<br />

developed exact ideas and plans. All outside work<br />

was carried out by Neverland Themepark Projects<br />

from Belgium, and the inside of the station building<br />

was done by AZ décors from France. The theme<br />

area extends the park area by ten percent, and contains<br />

in addition to the new coaster “OzIris” only the<br />

integrated Tivoli Coaster “SOS Numerobis”, which<br />

until now had carried the names “Trans’Arverne”<br />

and “Périférix”.<br />

The coaster can already be well recognised from<br />

the autobahn A1 that travels from Paris to the north<br />

in the direction of Lille. The effects that until now<br />

were not recognisable from the highway should<br />

really not be underestimated. A pleasant anticipation<br />

of a visit is without a doubt contributed to by<br />

the uninterrupted view of the lift and the first drop<br />

from the park’s own exit.<br />

102


Having arrived at the park, the circuit course leads<br />

visitors past the water attraction “Le Grand<br />

Splatch”, the Bob “La Trace du Hourra”, and under<br />

the supported course of the “Menhir Express” anticlockwise<br />

in the new theme area. Here guests discover<br />

a large forecourt that to the greater part nestles<br />

among the new blue tracks, however is still designed<br />

relatively openly. An obelisk is located in the<br />

centre in the form of the Eifel Tower – the first taste<br />

of the many allusions that the “OzIris” holds ready.<br />

The Temple of Iris rises prominently behind the<br />

obelisk. This is not a character from the comics but<br />

an Egyptian magician and hypnotist from the film<br />

“Asterix Conquers Rome”. One of the twelve tasks<br />

that the hard-hitting Gaul duo has to overcome is to<br />

withstand the gaze of the magician. Whilst they are<br />

waiting for their trial Asterix and Obelix see another<br />

patient fly through the waiting area that the Iris<br />

had made believe is a bird – the gimmick that bears<br />

a relation to the Inverted Coaster.<br />

The name of the attraction is put together out of the<br />

name of the magician and the use of the silver “Oz”<br />

suffix that correlates with the imperative of the<br />

French verb “oser”, which in turn means “trust yourself”<br />

or “dare something”. Following the “Le Défi de<br />

César”, the new coaster is the second large new attraction<br />

that bears a relation to the theme Asterix.<br />

The earlier three novelties – “Oxygénarium”, “La<br />

Trace du Hourra” and “TransDémonium” had no<br />

branding. Using the park’s guiding theme once<br />

more is without a doubt the correct step.<br />

The adventure beings when entering the waiting<br />

area through a large entrance gate lined with statues,<br />

where a test seat is located as a precautionary<br />

measure. The queue line leads under and beside<br />

a part of the coaster – there is no theming here,<br />

but the relaxed route and the taut netting over the<br />

path gives a view of what is to be expected.<br />

The vertical looping<br />

An action packed ride<br />

103


Luckily the “Oziris” is not<br />

a standard “Batman” layout<br />

Alternative and exciting<br />

sky high and near to the ground<br />

sequences<br />

The four rooms in the station building have a capacity<br />

for a 20 minute queue line. The first room is<br />

designed as the waiting room of Iris, whilst the second<br />

room is dominated by a huge statue of the<br />

magician, and a number of funny wall paintings depict<br />

some of his accomplishments. The way then<br />

leads though a sarcophagus into a laboratory, after<br />

which the station level is reached over a staircase.<br />

Having arrived, the waiting guests are divided into<br />

eight rows of four in the antechamber designed as<br />

a temple hall. The walls show the development of<br />

the hypnotised right up to the bird, followed by a<br />

stylised display of the track course.<br />

Now well prepared, the flight may begin at long last.<br />

Baggage can be deposited in one of the three lockers<br />

allocated to each train on the opposite wall. Following<br />

the obligatory safety check of the restraints,<br />

eyes turn for a short time to the stone tablet at the<br />

exit of the station, and the train rolls smoothly into<br />

the chain lift. The train goes immediately into the<br />

first drop – without the usual, more or less strongly<br />

distinctive pre-drop on B&M Inverters. With that, the<br />

back part of the train is literally pulled over the highest<br />

point whilst passengers in the first row have an<br />

uninterrupted view towards the unusually steep first<br />

drop.<br />

104


But this is not the last feature of “OzIris”. The first<br />

drop winding to the left travels into a right curve at<br />

its lowest point, which marks the entrance to the first<br />

inversion, a Dive Loop. This is not approached from<br />

the front, but to the side in a curve, ending however<br />

in the usual half vertical looping.<br />

Through this constellation the ride figure appears<br />

very unusual, depending on the perspective. A<br />

supported and slightly inclined right curve follows<br />

that passes over a relatively small but high vertical<br />

loop. And there’s another surprising moment here:<br />

the exit of the loop leads not only distinctly banked<br />

into a tunnel, but also gives the end of the train a<br />

surprising vertical impulse, which gives the feeling<br />

that the seat sags slightly. The train then travels<br />

though the third inversion, an Immelmann, and then<br />

back in the direction of the lift hill. This is followed<br />

by a right curve that breaks off from the parallel<br />

tracks in front of the station building, and continues<br />

directly towards an area of water between the<br />

obelisks and the station. The makers here had generously<br />

provided a second tunnel that leads under<br />

the water, filled with thick spray mist. This not only<br />

provides a refreshing cool down, but also prevents<br />

even passengers in the first row from seeing the<br />

next part of the track course, and with that, they are<br />

also surprised by the Flat Spin turning anticlockwise.<br />

This element goes into a long drawn out right<br />

curve, and is followed by the second left curve after<br />

the first drop. This leads down into a depression<br />

The new central area is<br />

simultaneously the centre point<br />

of the new theme area<br />

Even a water tunnel has<br />

been built into the track layout<br />

The layout can be well<br />

viewed from nearly all vantage<br />

points<br />

below ground level, to go directly into the fifth and<br />

last inversion, a Zero-g-Roll. The weightless roll<br />

travels very closely past the roof edge of the station<br />

building, and with that offers a “near miss” element<br />

as a further optical effect. And it’s not all over<br />

yet as there follows an ascending three quarter<br />

curve with typically strong and positive forces that<br />

push the riders into their seats. Just for a change<br />

there’s a small airtime hill under the lift before a right<br />

curve in the final brakes provides a small farewell<br />

for the last time with a little pressure. A scant minute<br />

after the exit from the lift, and the flight is over, followed<br />

only by a 180° return to the station.<br />

As it so often is there comes the cardinal and controversial<br />

question: at the back or in the front? It’s<br />

obvious that the front promises, as with every Inverter,<br />

an uninterrupted view. But for those who prefer<br />

the ride dynamics experience, there’s nothing<br />

better than the last or at the very least the second<br />

last rows. Here the ride is distinctly crisper, each<br />

curve and inversion is more intense,<br />

to say nothing of the first<br />

drop. And all this with a running<br />

smoothness that hardly differentiates<br />

in the front or the back.<br />

The question of seating is in no<br />

way unimportant because<br />

those who do not only visit the<br />

park because of “OzIris” most<br />

probably will only manage one<br />

ride. And this is not just a<br />

prophesy as Parc Astérix is either<br />

overfilled or closed. Naturally<br />

there are slower visitor<br />

days; however the park still<br />

manages even then to level out<br />

the waiting time to one hour<br />

through consistent loading operation<br />

– for the first row an<br />

added 15 minutes has to be calculated. The structurally<br />

identical entrance for single riders is rarely<br />

used, so that even when there is a two-train operation,<br />

a number leave the station half full sometimes.<br />

The hopefully only initial operational teething problems<br />

cannot hide the fact that with “OzIris” Parc<br />

Astérix has enriched the European coaster scene<br />

with a terrific construction. The ride dynamics are<br />

harmonious from the beginning to the end, contributed<br />

to without a doubt by the attraction having<br />

no block brakes. Added to this is the design of the<br />

new theme area and the station, for which approximately<br />

half of the total investment costs of 20 million<br />

Euro was used – after all, completely themed<br />

coasters are higher-priced than those that have to<br />

enthral purely by their ride sequence.<br />

The new coaster<br />

restraint from Intamin is<br />

also in use here, and provides<br />

a level of freedom on<br />

Freefall Towers unknown<br />

until now<br />

Not content with having the prestigious<br />

title “Roller Coaster<br />

Capital of the World”, having<br />

more coasters than any other<br />

park in the world with 17 coaster<br />

attractions, the Californian park<br />

Six Flags Magic Mountain can<br />

call another world record its own<br />

now: “Lex Luthor’s Drop of<br />

Doom” opened on the 7 th July to<br />

become the highest Freefall<br />

Tower in the world.<br />

Text:<br />

Chris Murray,<br />

Lex Luthor / Superman<br />

Pinguino Kolb,<br />

Six Flags Inc.<br />

Standing 121 metres tall, the Freefall Tower<br />

sends its riders plummeting straight down at a<br />

speed of 125 kilometres per hour since this season.<br />

Riders get to enjoy or alternatively endure five<br />

seconds of pure freefall before being gradually<br />

brought to a halt by magnetic brakes.<br />

When it came to building such a tall ride, Six Flags<br />

Magic Mountain was fortunate to have an existing<br />

structure as carrier of the long vertical tracks,<br />

which saved a lot of costs. “Superman: Escape<br />

from Krypton”, the parks 126 metre high Reverse<br />

Freefall Coaster, also built by Intamin, provided a<br />

suitable frame for the installation of “Lex Luthor’s<br />

Drop of Doom”. And that’s pretty much what they<br />

did, bolting the drop tower guide rails onto both<br />

sides of the coaster’s tower. Quite appropriate, as<br />

Lex Luthor is Superman’s arch nemesis.<br />

The two ride gondolas on opposite sides of the<br />

tower are winched up at the same time on individual<br />

cables, which join together at the mid way<br />

point, so that a single cable is wound onto a single<br />

drum. The two gondolas, each carrying eight<br />

passengers are then dropped at exactly the same<br />

time.<br />

The “Lex Luthor’s Drop of Doom” tower attraction<br />

is genuinely terrifying. Even experienced theme<br />

park goers are unnerved by the sheer height, and<br />

the long 60 second accent builds up further<br />

tension.<br />

And the subsequent never ending freefall at an<br />

incredible speed increases the thrill factor<br />

immensely. After what feels like an eternity riders<br />

reach the magnetic brakes and are brought slowly<br />

back down the last few metres.<br />

When perfectly timed, the sight of the cars of<br />

“Superman: Escape From Krypton” racing the<br />

gondolas of “Lex Luthor Drop of Doom” down the<br />

sheer drop is quite spectacular. For those on the<br />

drop tower, it makes the ride even scarier, as the<br />

up and down movement of the speeding coaster<br />

cars make the tower sway dramatically up to 60<br />

centimetres.<br />

The Six Flags Magic Mountain erected construction<br />

isn’t unique however. Dreamworld in Australia<br />

opened the “Tower of Terror” in January<br />

1997. It was to be the first coaster to reach 160<br />

kilometres per hour and at 115 metres became the<br />

world’s tallest coaster. But its record was short<br />

lived, as the almost identical “Superman The<br />

Escape” opened just a few months later in March,<br />

with two tracks instead of one, and a height of 126<br />

metres.<br />

The other change that Six Flags Magic Mountain<br />

made to this coaster in 2011, followed in the footsteps<br />

of Dreamworld that had made the change a<br />

year earlier: the 15-seat cars were replaced by<br />

substantially lighter versions, as due to the weight<br />

and the instable American power supply system,<br />

the previous cars could never reach the complete<br />

height. Simultaneously the ride direction was<br />

The high tower<br />

construction is now used<br />

jointly by two attractions<br />

111


changed so that riders launch backwards out of<br />

the station and up the vertical climb, before dropping<br />

face down back down the sheer drop. It remains<br />

however uncertain as to why only one side<br />

of the double-track attraction at Six Flags travels<br />

“backwards” – as there could have been two<br />

different experiences offered.<br />

And the adaption of a freefall on the tower construction<br />

of the “Reverse Freefall Coaster” was<br />

also copied from the Australia park. Already in<br />

1998 Dreamworld had installed two 118 metre<br />

long vertical tracks on its “Tower of Terror” construction.<br />

Now, fourteen years later Six Flags<br />

Magic Mountain was able to go 10 feet higher (3<br />

metres) to gain the title “World’s Highest Freefall<br />

Tower” for itself.<br />

The entrance area to the<br />

new indoor adventure<br />

Nemesis Sub-Terra<br />

Approaching the site, on the hill overlooking the<br />

original “Nemesis” inverted coaster from Bolliger<br />

& Mabillard, guests find a large metal shed<br />

surrounded by security cameras, tanks and fencing,<br />

and are greeted by operations staff in black<br />

military dress.<br />

Moving through the queue line, TV screens recount<br />

the story of the Nemesis with a series of archive<br />

video clips and new animations, and reveal<br />

more about the secret underground work being<br />

carried out by the Phalanx. Arriving at the facility<br />

entrance, the Phalanx operatives begin shouting<br />

orders at guests. Anyone not moving quickly<br />

enough or doing exactly what they’re told find<br />

themselves on the receiving end of even louder<br />

shouting. Adding to the secure and secret nature<br />

of the facility, guests must pass through (fake)<br />

metal detectors when entering the building. Once<br />

inside, the ride operators separate guests into two<br />

groups for the pre-show film. Guests are then<br />

hastily ushered, with even more shouting, into<br />

elevators for the decent to the caves below. Sadly<br />

the vibrations, light and sound effects, used to<br />

simulate the lift descending are rather poor, in fact<br />

quite a dated way of doing it. A shame the far more<br />

impressive system used for the Great Glass Elevator<br />

segment of the “Charlie and The Chocolate<br />

Factory” Darkride, wasn’t employed here.<br />

Once “deep below ground” it’s time to exit the elevator.<br />

After walking along a short corridor, themed<br />

to look like a tunnel bored through underground<br />

rock, guest find themselves in a large chamber. In<br />

the centre is the Nemesis egg, and on each side<br />

of the room there is seating for the four drop towers.<br />

Anyone not knowing what “Nemesis Sub-<br />

Terra” actually is would be unaware of what they<br />

are sitting on, in part thanks to high quality theming,<br />

but more due to a crucial aspect: unlike<br />

114


many normal drop towers, this ride actually begins<br />

by boarding at the top part of the tower and not<br />

the bottom, so the drop and the tower shaft are<br />

hidden.<br />

Once everyone is secure the TV screens reveal<br />

more information about the egg which was first<br />

thought to be dead, but recently signs of life have<br />

been seen. At this point the lights begin to flicker<br />

and after a brief moment of darkness it becomes<br />

apparent that the egg has hatched. Another Nemesis<br />

creature is loose in the room and breathing<br />

his wet breath on the visitors. Then without warning<br />

the ride drops into another underground<br />

chamber that’s filled with eggs, some of which<br />

have also hatched. Trapped in the seats the<br />

creatures breath on passengers, stab them in the<br />

back, and brush against their legs.<br />

After a short while riders are slowly raised back up<br />

to the first chamber with the smoke, light and<br />

sound effects continuing. With the lap bars released,<br />

Phalanx operatives begin shouting again,<br />

rushing guests back into the elevators to return to<br />

the surface. But escaping the Nemesis creatures<br />

isn’t that easy, as during the accent the lift begins<br />

to shake violently. There’s loud banging, the lights<br />

go out and parts of the elevator walls begin to<br />

bend and fall away. But fortunately guests reach<br />

the surface before the Nemesis can break in, and<br />

another Phalanx operative encourages everyone<br />

to run for safety.<br />

Nice Concept, but...<br />

Overall the concept, theming and atmosphere<br />

created by the typical character of the 18 year old<br />

ride can’t be faulted. But unfortunately the “Nemesis<br />

Sub-Terra” awoke great expectations in thrill<br />

seeking park guests, which the not bad but more<br />

The Nemesis-egg has<br />

been released for viewing<br />

UPDATE<br />

Following guest feedback<br />

from the first few months of<br />

operation, Alton Towers have<br />

attempted to make the experience<br />

more terryfying. The exit<br />

path from the final lift scene<br />

has been extended and converted<br />

into a live horror maze.<br />

The exit path has been lined<br />

with caged walls which live actors<br />

wearing gas masks rush at<br />

and bang on in a bid to send<br />

riders running and screaming<br />

for the exit doors. Whilst this<br />

may extend the experience<br />

and provide a last minute<br />

scare, it still doesn’t improve<br />

the core part of the ride, the<br />

tame drop tower ride. ■<br />

The name giving attraction,<br />

the “Nemesis” coaster<br />

from 1994, remains as before<br />

an example of the successful<br />

theming of a coaster<br />

Another novelty of 2012 is<br />

the new 3D film “Ice Age” that<br />

RIDE FACTS<br />

■ Opening: 24 th March 2012<br />

■ Drop height: 7 m<br />

■ Total ride time: 5 min<br />

■ 4 freefall towers, each for<br />

10 passengers<br />

■ Manufacturer: abc rides,<br />

■ Operator: Alton Towers,<br />

Alton/Staffordshire, England<br />

It’s expected that a new<br />

coaster will be installed again<br />

next year<br />

of a family friendly drop tower can’t fulfill. Although<br />

it provides a surprising element, it’s not very<br />

intensive. Very good though are the addition of<br />

physical effects, more commonly felt in 4D cinemas<br />

than a drop tower. Leg ticklers, back stabbers<br />

and water misters all come as an unexpected<br />

surprise. Starting the ride at the top of the tower is<br />

also believed to be a world’s first.<br />

The actual ride hardware has been supplied by<br />

Swiss manufacturer abc rides in the form of four<br />

ten seat Freefall Towers. The actual height of the<br />

drop hasn’t been revealed but can be assumed to<br />

be seven metres as this is the height of the similar<br />

“Extremis Drop Ride to Doom” tower rides<br />

found at London Dungeons, Hamburg Dungeons,<br />

Edinburgh Dungeons and more recently Blackpool<br />

Dungeons. All these examples have a 1.2 m<br />

height restriction but “Nemesis Sub-Terra” has a<br />

1.4 m requirement. The high height requirement<br />

further leads to the impression of an extreme ride<br />

on par with the “Nemesis” coaster.<br />

Maybe the height restriction for “Nemesis Sub-<br />

Terra” could be reduced in the future, so that<br />

younger family members who are too short to ride<br />

the coaster “Nemesis” can still enjoy being a part<br />

of the story and not feel left out. Most probably, if<br />

the ride had been promoted as a family experience<br />

rather than an extreme one, expectations would<br />

have been lower, and perhaps there would be less<br />

criticism.<br />

There have been talks of adding a similar attraction<br />

to Gardaland as a support attraction for the<br />

“Raptor”. It would be wise perhaps to adapt to the<br />

restrictions and the actual ride experience right<br />

from the start here.<br />

Further Novelties at Alton Towers<br />

On the opposite side of the park in the “Cloud<br />

Cuckoo Land”, an attraction for all ages has<br />

opened: “Ice Age The 4D Experience” is a shortened<br />

version of the 3D cinematic movie “Ice Age<br />

Dawn of the Dinosaurs”. Further enhancing the<br />

movie are physical effects like falling snow, leg<br />

ticklers, vibrating seats and water misters. Being<br />

an edited version of the Hollywood blockbuster,<br />

the film itself was of superb<br />

quality, and not cheap looking<br />

like some theme park 3D films<br />

can appear.<br />

Secret Weapon 7<br />

In the weanwhile work is well under<br />

way for a new roller coaster<br />

set to debut in 2013. Currently<br />

using the code name “SW7”,<br />

planning permission was granted<br />

earlier in the year for the ride<br />

to be built on the former “Black<br />

Hole” site. Contrary to previous<br />

reports in the KPR the “Submission”<br />

and “Enterprise” will<br />

not be closed. Construction<br />

plans have been altered to allow<br />

both rides to operate this season.<br />

It’s not yet known which<br />

company is responsible for the<br />

new ride.<br />

More Attractions in 2013<br />

In 2011, Aqua Fantasy decided to expand<br />

once more with an “Uphill Navigator”<br />

from Polin. The new ride, especially<br />

designed for the park, uses the same<br />

starting tower as the two extreme slides<br />

erected the year before. The commonly<br />

known Uphill-Waterslide in dark blueturquoise<br />

colour combinations is a fast<br />

slide with two uphill portions. The height<br />

of the slide is 14.68 meters and the length<br />

is 131 meters.<br />

<strong>Park</strong> Director Muharrem Atilla: “The<br />

adrenaline is high, people are so happy,<br />

and the queues are very long. We have a<br />

great relationship with Polin and they understand<br />

our needs, so we decided to<br />

bring in a signature ride by the same<br />

manufacturer in 2013 too.”<br />

Efteling<br />

This year, the park in the Netherlands celebrates<br />

its 60 th birthday, and since the end of May has<br />

offered its guests a very special novelty: by the<br />

park’s own account, the largest fountain show in<br />

Europe. Apparently 17 million Euro was spent for<br />

the “Aquanura” in order to make the attraction the<br />

third largest water show in the world following the<br />

Dubai Fountain (Middle East) and the Fountain s of<br />

Bellagio (Las Vegas, USA).<br />

Four frogs transform the central park lake, direct at the entrance, into a symphonic water<br />

ballet and “set fire” to a fountain that sets off a gigantic water show, which is from elegant<br />

to imposing. Efteling’s characters are also included when for example abstract figures<br />

emerge from a sea of flowers – accompanied by well known Efteling fairytale melodies.<br />

The interaction of the elements water, fire, music and light takes about 10 minutes for each<br />

presentation, and can be viewed by 6,500 visitors simultaneously.<br />

The RGH Themed Entertainment, a division of<br />

Rubicon Group Holding, is currently planning<br />

and developing the Red Sea Astrarium.<br />

The large project in the Jordanian city of Aqaba will<br />

apparently cost in total 1.5 million US-Dollars, using<br />

the licences from Paramount <strong>Park</strong>s & Recreation<br />

and CBS Consumer Products, in order for example<br />

to be able to erect a complete “Star Trek” theme<br />

area. Very recently the integration of a further large<br />

attraction has also been announced: the construction<br />

of a 5D-cinema of a special type. In the “Wonders!”<br />

attraction, passengers take their place in a<br />

flight simulator designed according to customer<br />

requirements, before they hover over the Seven<br />

Wonders of the World. The attraction harbours the<br />

ride system “i-Ride” from Vekoma Rides Manufacturing<br />

and Brogent Technologies.<br />

The Red Sea Astrarium will celebrate and join<br />

together the various cultures, regions and times, on<br />

an area of 75 hectares. In addition to the theme park<br />

there will apparently also be four luxury hotels, a<br />

botanical garden and a type of CityWalk for evening<br />

entertainment realised in a number of phases. ■<br />

DYNAMIC ATTRACTIONS<br />

Dynamic Attractions<br />

Recently the Canadian industry group Empire<br />

Industry Ltd and its subsidiary Dynamic Attractions<br />

have announced the delivery of a “Flying<br />

Theatre” for an unnamed park in the United Arab<br />

Emirates in 2013.<br />

As is known, the manufacturer (under the name of<br />

Dynamic Structures) had realised the nearly<br />

structurally identical and fantastic Disney attraction<br />

“Soarin’ Over California”. General Manager Mr.<br />

Peter Schnabel<br />

also advised of the<br />

company’s awarded<br />

contract to<br />

change the tracks<br />

of the “Big Thunder<br />

Mountain Railroad”<br />

completely at Magic<br />

Kingdom (at Walt<br />

Disney World in<br />

Florida), in order to<br />

improve the ride<br />

quality and to minimise maintenance. This coaster<br />

was erected in 1980 by Arrow.<br />

Falcon’s Treehouse<br />

The largest water park in the Caribbean occupies<br />

an area of 14,000 m 2 and was opened in March<br />

in Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. And with<br />

that the first building phase of a huge project has<br />

been completed – a 526 hectare sized destination<br />

zone for entertainment,<br />

which is located<br />

about 5 kilometres<br />

from a superb<br />

beach, and<br />

comprises of a total<br />

of seven projects.<br />

The theme park near the city of Madrid received<br />

an additional coaster this season in the form of<br />

a new Family Coaster from Gerstlauer Amusement<br />

Rides.<br />

“TNT Tren de la Mina” has been designed as a Mine<br />

Train and promises a speedy ride experience due<br />

to its 17.5 metre height and a speed of up to 55 km/h<br />

through a mine.<br />

The track leads all 18 passengers through a minetower<br />

directly after the chain lift, absolves steep<br />

curves, sudden drops, and offers spins and directional<br />

changes through the rocky, 90 by 50 metre<br />

sized area. At the end of the ride the fail-safe magnetic<br />

brakes bring the coaster train smoothly to a<br />

standstill.<br />

MAGAZINE<br />

Two trains each with nine cars operate on the 450<br />

metre course. Individual shell seats, large foot area<br />

and individual restraints provide for adequate<br />

comfort and optimal safety. The capacity according<br />

to the manufacturer is 1,000 passengers per<br />

hour.<br />
