KALEIDOSCOPE<br />

GLÜCKSKÖNIG<br />

Victim to a fire in<br />

Düsseldorf: The “Glückskönig”<br />

Continental Pick stand from<br />

the Schleinitz firm<br />

TAKE OFF<br />

Text & Photo:<br />

Norman Vogt<br />

Since the beginning<br />

of this season, the<br />

“Take Off” from the Ruppert<br />

firm from Bad Wildungen<br />

has surprised<br />

the public with a new<br />

backflash design. The<br />

cheeky, teenage motifs<br />

painted by a Polish artist<br />

in strong and fresh<br />

colours, give the ride a<br />

spectacularly new<br />

overall appearance. ■<br />

Text & Photos: Michael Petersen<br />

The large Continental Pick “Glückskönig” from<br />

the Schleinitz family belonged as much to the<br />

Düsseldorf Rheinwiesen event as the Altbier<br />

belongs to the Düsseldorf medieval city centre.<br />

Every year, thousands of attractive prizes are<br />

presented and paid out from more than 20 front<br />

metres. The attraction numbered among the<br />

largest games operations in the industry. Unfortunately,<br />

this is a thing of the past, as the “Glückskönig”<br />

fell victim to a fire on its traditional Düsseldorf<br />

site the night of 14 th / 15 th July. Woken by<br />

the sound of burning at about 4:40 a.m., a showman<br />

colleague immediately called the fire<br />

brigade. Other alarmed showmen cooled adjoining<br />

caravans, baggage vans and concession<br />

stalls by the aid of hoses up until the arrival of the<br />

fire brigade. While the now engulfed “Glückskönig”<br />

was completely destroyed by the fire, the fire<br />

brigade succeeded in protecting the adjoining attractions<br />

and vehicles from the spreading flames.<br />

The courageous intervention of colleagues and<br />

wet weather may well have prevented more damage.<br />

Initial police investigations ruled out a technical<br />

fault as the cause of the fire, so it is now presumed<br />

to have been an act of deliberate arson.<br />

It was decidedly less than professional that the<br />

organiser omitted to say a single word about the<br />

fire during the opening of the fair on the Friday, or<br />

at the Schützenfest on Saturday. Some words of<br />

comfort would have been reasonable; after all, the<br />

livelihood of the Schleinitz family had fallen victim<br />

to this fire. Many showman colleagues stood by<br />

the Schleinitz family with words, deeds and offers<br />

of help in these difficult times.<br />

ROUE PARISIENNE<br />

KALEIDOSCOPE<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Heiko Schimanzik<br />

Only a few visitors and<br />

colleagues noticed that<br />

on one of the opening<br />

days during the Hannover<br />

Schützenfest, a new test<br />

gondola of closed design<br />

was tried out at the “Roue<br />

Parisienne” Ferris Wheel<br />

from Burghard-Kleuser<br />

for TÜV inspection purposes.<br />

There are plans to (optionally)<br />

equip half the Ferris<br />

Wheel with standard rotating<br />

open gondolas, and<br />

the other half with the new<br />

closed gondolas in the<br />

near future. To be precise,<br />

during the build up, 16<br />

open and closed gondolas<br />

will be mounted to the Mondial<br />

attraction in an<br />

alternating arrangement.<br />

The new gondolas were actually modelled on the<br />

replacement gondola from the “Roue de Paris”<br />

Ferris Wheel from a foreign colleague. The new<br />

“half 'n' half” version is to be presented for the<br />

first time in Hamm (Westphalia) in mid-September.<br />

It was an extraordinary wedding: during the<br />

Pfingstkirmes, both Bergisch Gladbach fairground<br />

organisers, Burkhard and Ute Unrau,<br />

were married at the Dodgem track from the<br />

Barth firm.<br />

On June 11 th , there was first a “short” ceremony<br />

in the wedding room of the Bergisches Gladbach<br />

town hall, as according to law a marriage<br />

ceremony is only allowed to take place in a<br />

dedicated room. An hour later the wedding party<br />

set out to the dodgem track on the fairground,<br />

where the wedding ceremony was held for the<br />

couple once again at the festively decorated<br />

area. Several hundred guests, naturally including<br />

showmen, Bergisches Gladbach residents,<br />

as well as VIPs from the local political<br />

scene (e.g. Wolfgang Bosbach), watched<br />

the extraordinary wedding.<br />

EIS-BOOS<br />

Made by Dietz: ice<br />

cream booths from Boos<br />

Claudia and Wolfgang<br />

Boos from Klingenberg<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Norman Vogt<br />

The new sweet and ice cream booth from<br />

Claudia Boos from Klingenberg celebrated<br />

its première at this year’s Michelstadt<br />

Bienenmarkt.<br />

The 6 metre long construction was built by<br />

the Dietz firm according to the wishes of the<br />

showman firm, and the ideas of Claudia’s<br />

husband, Wolfgang Boos. The result is<br />

quite impressive; the upbeat painting<br />

perfectly harmonises with the neon lighting<br />

(from the Ilmenau ILM firm). The sales booth<br />

was completed only a couple of days before<br />

the opening of the Bienenmarkt, from<br />

where it travelled on to events in Speyer and<br />

Erbach.<br />

By the way, the previous model, also built<br />

by Dietz as a skip container (6 m) in 2002,<br />

is also still touring.<br />

William Fischer (3. f. l.)<br />

with his life partner, Tina Kalwa,<br />

was honoured by Lord Mayor<br />

Dirk Elbers (r.) and President<br />

Lothar Inden in Düsseldorf<br />

As is tradition, on the<br />

first Monday of the<br />

Düsseldorf Fair, one of<br />

most exceptional<br />

showmen participants<br />

is chosen by the organiser<br />

to be specially<br />

honoured for his or<br />

her service to the<br />

event. This time the<br />

chosen candidate was<br />

William Fischer.<br />

In the Düsseldorf city<br />

hall, the Lord Mayor<br />

Dirk Elbers presented William “Menzie” Fischer<br />

this honorary award. With his Giant Slide, “Toboggan”,<br />

William Fischer has thrilled the visitors<br />

with a special show at the Rheinwiesen for years.<br />

His slick announcements over the microphone<br />

accompany his guests on their way up on the<br />

conveyor belt, with young and old enjoying the<br />

little accidents of those braving the attraction,<br />

which is hardly without (harmless) falls and hilarious<br />

contortions. This still provides much fun to<br />

all participants over and over again. In addition<br />

to the Lord Mayor and the St. Sebastians, William<br />

Fischer also explicitly thanked his life partner<br />

Tina Kalwa after the ceremony.<br />

(M. Gregoire): and gastronomy: XXL Snacks (J. M.<br />

Vermolen). This time, the "audience award” went<br />

to the “Mission Space” from T. Kroon. The certificates<br />

and cups were presented to the winners by<br />

Joost Möller (City of Tilburg). As usual, the prize<br />

winners are automatically approved for the event<br />

the following year (and for the same fairground<br />

fees), no further applications being required.<br />

By the way, this would also have applied to a<br />

prize winner from 2010; namely the “Teststrecke”<br />

from the Steiger firm. However, as this option<br />

could not be realised in 2011 due to a tight<br />

schedule, the automatic approval for the Looping<br />

Coaster was postponed to the following year<br />

– by mutual consent with the city of Tilburg. ■<br />

FLY ZONE<br />

Première in Troyes; “Fly Zone”<br />

from Steven Bourgois<br />

Text & Photos: Norman Vogt<br />

The first “Loop Fighter” from Technical <strong>Park</strong>, was<br />

introduced to France by the showman Yohan Krismann<br />

under the name of “Loop Zone” last year, a<br />

second ride of this type, celebrated its French<br />

première in Troyes this season; namely, the “Fly<br />

Zone” from Steven Bourgois.<br />

The next venue on its tour schedule was the renowned<br />

Foire du Trone in Paris. In contrast to the “Loop Zone”,<br />

the “Fly Zone” has a backflash with motifs from aviation<br />

sport. The LED lighting system, which provides<br />

perfect lighting for the ride after sundown, is now<br />

almost standard. With the purchase of the “Fly Zone”,<br />

Steven Bourgois, who had already bought the “Streetfighter”<br />

swing called “Number One” from the Italian<br />

manufacturer in 2004, once again decided in favour of<br />

a ride from Technical <strong>Park</strong>. During the summer months,<br />

Bourgois will present his novelty ride at the Luna <strong>Park</strong><br />

in Vias and in the autumn in Firminy.<br />

Munich Oktoberfest<br />

Text:<br />

Karl Ruisinger<br />

Heiko Schimanzik, Norman Vogt, Archive<br />

Another 58 days, 1 hour, and 12 minutes until the<br />

tapping of the keg – that was as things stood when<br />

the event manager Gabriele Weishäupl took the microphone<br />

at the press conference on July 21 st for<br />

the 178 th Oktoberfest: According to the Wiesn<br />

manager, a countdown clock discovered on the Internet<br />

and counting even the seconds up until it is<br />

“Ozapft is!”, proves how much not only the locals,<br />

but also fans from all over the world are longing for<br />

the most famous Volksfest event of all.<br />

Four days earlier, the build up of the gigantic Wirtsbudenstadt,<br />

or beer tent city, had begun. Actually,<br />

the Wiesn is on the agenda the whole year round, not<br />

least for the press and in local political life. Throughout<br />

the year, articles have appeared that ranged in<br />

subject from the long overdue sentence for the “Robber-Duo”,<br />

who had robbed and beaten up Oktoberfest<br />

visitors at the Wiesn 2010, to the “criminal Wiesn ripoff”<br />

on the Internet with illegal reservations of fiercely<br />

contested seats inside the beer tents at horrendous<br />

prices. Party-political in-fighting became clear around<br />

the proposal to install photovoltaic modules on top of<br />

the Wiesn tents (Die Grünen), or the attempts by the<br />

aspirants to the office of Munich Lord Mayor (from SPD<br />

and CSU) to outdo each other in respect of finding original<br />

names for the historic Wiesn; with the “Oide Wiesn”<br />

(“Old Wiesn”, as rendered in Bavarian) from the “red”<br />

economic counsellor, Dieter Reiter, being the winner.<br />

anniversary” in 2010, has now been established as a<br />

permanent fixture at the Oktoberfest (with the exception<br />

every four years during the “small Wiesn”), and is<br />

in the focus of this year's advertising in the state capital<br />

of Munich. Nostalgia and Bavarian folk music, local<br />

customs and tradition are the keywords, emphasizing<br />

The Wiesn 2010<br />

Embroidered Wiesn<br />

The “Oide Wiesn”, which due to it being so highly<br />

The Oktoberfest 2011 will be held from September 17 th<br />

to October 3 rd and will spread across a total area of 34<br />

hectares. From the 1,459 applications for the coveted<br />

sites, 617 showman operations were approved. The<br />

break down is as follows: 172 showman attractions,<br />

293 sales stalls, 141 gastronomic operations (including<br />

17 large tents and 21 medium-sized operations)<br />

plus service facilities. All in all, some 12,000 people will<br />

be working at the Wiesn. The price for a litre of beer<br />

has increased by 3.6 percent, meanwhile ranging from<br />

8.70 to 9.20 Euro. In theory, those who want to drink<br />

their beer sitting down have a choice of some 115,000<br />

seats.<br />

Showman Wiesn<br />

New 2011: HP Maier’s<br />

“Monster” swing in Munich<br />

for the first time<br />

the return to the cosy Volksfest charm of former times.<br />

This is perfectly reflected in the plain and somewhat<br />

simple Wiesn poster with embroidered images of classic<br />

motifs, such as lederhosen and dirndl, a Ferris<br />

Wheel and chain ride, a beer mug and Brezn, gingerbread<br />

hearts, and “Bleamin” (little flowers), “auf Bayerisch”),<br />

which is also for sale as a hand-made seat<br />

cushion. Apart from this, the advertising brims with exuberant<br />

superlatives, such as “larger than usual” (an<br />

additional 3 hectare area of ground for the “Oide<br />

Wiesn”), “lasting longer than normal” (17 days due to<br />

the public holiday on October 3 rd ), “more secure than<br />

ever” (triple cordoned-off circles around the area, the<br />

outer one 6 kilometres long; 180 traffic bollards within<br />

the inner circle, 80 of them retractable and flashing,<br />

utilising the latest technology). Moreover, all the high<br />

tower constructions and rides stacked one on top of<br />

The showman sector will offer two novelty attractions<br />

this year. With “Rio Rapidos”, Wiesn visitors will be able<br />

to enjoy a rafting experience. Even though the “Wild’n<br />

Wet” rafting construction from Löwenthal already<br />

made a guest appearance in 2006, the “Rio Rapidos”<br />

is now to be a completely new attraction at the Wiesn:<br />

“With spraying rapids, torrents and a veritable waterfall,<br />

a ride on the Rio Rapidos offers watery fun and a<br />

family-friendly adventure. At the brand new rafting ride<br />

from the French manufacturer Cedeal Rides, boats<br />

rotate 360 degrees through the rapids, with the current<br />

determining the running direction. “Portholes in the<br />

fairway offer an unobstructed view of the passengers,<br />

enabling the audience to participate in the speedy<br />

fun.” [Press Release]<br />

Only after the scheduled world première in Rudolstadt,<br />

which will however take place after this issue goes to<br />

press, will it be known what the attraction really has to<br />

offer and what it looks like. The owner of the “Rio Rapidos”<br />

is Sascha Kaiser, for whom it will be the first appearance<br />

on the Theresienwiese with his own ride.<br />

Other family members appearing will be father<br />

Siegfried (Skater), Jasmin (High Energy), and Tanja<br />

(Wellenflug) – four large attractions from the one family.<br />

The novelty ride will be built up at the east side of<br />

the Schaustellerstraße, in the section between Straße<br />

2 and 3.<br />

It was only a matter of time before an XXL swing would<br />

make an appearance at the Wiesn. Several Munich<br />

showmen considered investing in a construction like<br />

this during the last few years. From the two XXL<br />

applications for 2011, HP Maier's “Monster” was chosen.<br />

The giant swing will be built up at the top-end site<br />

of Straße 2, where the attraction with a height of 40 metres<br />

and an outward swing of 47 metres visible from<br />

any distance, will attract many visitors. Despite its<br />

“monster” theme and spectacular ride pattern, the<br />

swing has a slightly Bavarian charisma due to its white<br />

vicinity of Renoldi's rustic “Wild-Stub'n”.<br />

Sascha Kaiser and HP Maier are Wiesn debutantes;<br />

their rides were included in the Munich ride contingent<br />

as additional attractions. Nonetheless, almost all the<br />

large showman attractions from last year will appear<br />

again this year. The only attractions missing will be<br />

Hohmann’s “Magic” (which was presented at the<br />

Wiesn for the first time precisely 20 years ago, but did<br />

not apply this year), and the water ride from Löwenthal,<br />

which will be replaced by the construction from<br />

Meyer-Steiger according to a rotation scheme. While<br />

on the one hand, it has been possible to create additional<br />

space by relocating several attractions to the<br />

“Oide Wiesn” area, a former site for large attractions<br />

has been removed, due to its entrance being at the<br />

top-end of Straße 5.<br />

A look at the fairground map shows that the Wiesn organisers<br />

have succeeded in perfectly incorporating<br />

smaller predecessor of the “Monster”, being built up in a direct visual line<br />

and immediate vicinity of the towering novelty ride, where it might well be<br />

at a big disadvantage in respect of visitor attendance. As every junction<br />

in the showman area was supposed to be occupied by a different type of<br />

ride, it is hard to fathom why the “Musik-Express” and “Rund um den<br />

Tegernsee” will be built up opposite each other. Moreover, the “Rocket”,<br />

which was located in a relatively quiet area for a novelty already last year,<br />

will have to compete with the neighbouring Ferris Wheel in Straße 5 (always<br />

a difficult location), where it will probably not be able to fully present<br />

its striking height.<br />

Gastronomy Wiesn<br />

A number of novelties from the gastronomic sector are also at the starting<br />

block. True, there has been a wine tent at the Wiesn for some time now,<br />

but a public bar serving wine or champagne in a cosy setting, such as at<br />

the new “Weinlaube” from Claudia Aigner “in the shape of a “rustic wooden<br />

barn” [press release], has not been available so far. Nonetheless, those<br />

cosily enjoying several glasses of wine will not forget that they are still in<br />

the middle of the Oktoberfest hustle and bustle. After all, the new outlet is<br />

located at the foot of the “Alpinabahn”, with its trains occupied by screaming<br />

passengers thundering past. Last year, the tower at the Augustiner<br />

beer tent was built up again. Increased by five metres, the 30 metre construction<br />

will tower over the Wirtsbudenstraße as the landmark of the traditional<br />

tent this year. Another novelty well worth mentioning in the beer tent<br />

section is the piping in of beer from a 'mains supply' and its dispensing<br />

from a closed-circle arrangement of taps inside the “Bräurosl”. Moreover,<br />

nine beer tents will offer smoking areas, demonstrating tolerance towards<br />

nicotine aficionados.<br />

Oide Wiesn<br />

Despite all the aforementioned novelties, the “Oide Wiesn” is the focus of<br />

media attention prior to the event. Will it be as successful as in 2010? Can<br />

the relaxed atmosphere be preserved – with opening hours extended to<br />

10 p.m.? Will the visitors accept the entrance fee of € 3 again, even though<br />

the “exhibition” sector will hardly be represented? After all, the museum<br />

tent and the racing track, and the inclusion of an animal tent providing visitors<br />

with an understanding of all the aspects of “culture” and “tradition”,<br />

had largely contributed to the special flair last year. However, both attractions<br />

were unique elements of the anniversary event and are no longer part<br />

of the “Oide Wiesn”. The contingent of old rides and Walk-through con-<br />

structions is also somewhat smaller than in 2010.<br />

Moreover, it is striking that some of the best-known attractions<br />

have moved from the “normal” Wiesn to the<br />

“Oide” section, such as Stey’s multi-storey carousel,<br />

Schmack’s swing boat, Tille’s Jumbo-Flug, Trollmann’s<br />

Punch and Judy Show, and – most remarkable – Kalb’s<br />

chain ride. They all had been morsels of nostalgia in<br />

the modern Wiesn bustle and technology, but their<br />

move to the quieter section is quite sensible. Over the<br />

years, the chain ride for example, had to cope with the<br />

ever increasing competition from the “Star Flyer” and<br />

Wave-Swingers built up in its direct vicinity. Now – as<br />

was the case in former decades – it will be built up in<br />

the centre of a small but pleasant amusement area, being<br />

the “towering” centre of that fairground area. At a<br />

fare of EUR 1 (obligatory at the “Oide Wiesn”), its 48<br />

chairs will hopefully be quickly boarded and filled by<br />

passengers.<br />

The two ride hits at last year’s “Historic Wiesn” also pin<br />

their hopes on full gondolas: Both Schleifer’s “Fahrt ins<br />

Paradies” and Winheim’s “Calypso” are returning to the<br />

event with high expectations. While the “Humoristisch<br />

also be presented this year<br />

Velodrom” - now under the ownership of the Löwenthal<br />

family - will also appear again, the kiddie track ride<br />

from Anett Katzschmann will be presented for the first<br />

time. It was built in the 1950s and was the “most beautiful<br />

track ride in the former GDR”. Even though it was<br />

carefully modernized over the years, the music is still<br />

played to this day by a barrel organ built as “54-Wilhelmbruder”<br />

in 1898, and rebuilt into a 33-Ruth organ<br />

with double roll in 1938. GDR Nostalgia at the “Oide<br />

Wiesn”: Why Not?<br />

As was the case last year, there will be two festival tents<br />

in the “Oide” section. While the “Tradition” provided<br />

visitors with food and drink already in 2010, the “Zur<br />

Schönheitskönigin” will celebrate its première, replacing<br />

the “Herzkasperl-Zelt”. Moreover, the new musicians<br />

and folk singers tent will offer “lively traditional folk<br />

music for old and young alike, for listening enjoyment<br />

and singing along”. Among other highlights, there will<br />

also be a Bally-Prell song contest, in which the Wiesn<br />

director Weishäupl has already promised to participate.<br />

come a Wiesn fixture herself during her term in office.<br />

Beer tent patrons and showmen alike have come to<br />

appreciate the “down-to-earth”, experienced and<br />

competent event manager. The Wiesn 2011 will contain<br />

two minor farewell presents for her. The first will be<br />

the “Pemperlprater”, the first ride from her childhood,<br />

which will return to the Wiesn once again after a break<br />

of several years.<br />

Secondly, the Munich showmen have dusted off and<br />

renovated the “Pressewagerl” (media wagon), a caravan<br />

from the 1930s which she had used as an on-site<br />

press office at the beginning of her term in office, to be<br />

reactivated for a last appearance, and placed next to<br />

the service centre. At 11 p.m. on October 3 rd , Weishäupl,<br />

who does not drink a drop of alcohol after the<br />

obligatory litre of beer at the opening ceremony up until<br />

the closing of the Wiesn, will open a bottle of wine<br />

inside the wagon and drink to her staff with the toast;<br />

“thanks that everything worked out smoothly”. Those<br />

still sitting in one of the emptying beer tents or Wiesn<br />

beer gardens should raise their 1-litre beer mugs in the<br />

direction of the “Pressewagerl”.<br />

150 YEARS ROSENHEIM HERBSTFEST<br />

Text: WVR, Ralf Schmitt<br />

SInce 1861 a Volksfest is held on the Loretowiese<br />

in Rosenheim. An agricultural district festival with<br />

an industrial show in former times, the event increasingly<br />

developed into a true Volksfest, but<br />

one that was not always held regularly.<br />

IN 1873, for example, the Volksfest had to be cancelled<br />

due to the cholera epidemic, and was also<br />

cancelled at the outbreak of the First World War (1914<br />

to 1918), and only came back in 1925 with large beer<br />

tents, a wine tent, and as many as 19 showmen. In<br />

the post World War II years, 1946 to 1949, the “Bavarian<br />

Showman Association” organised an annual<br />

spring festival on the Loretowiese, up until its revival<br />

in 1949. The “Wirtschaftlicher Verband Rosenheim<br />

e.V.” became the organizer and renamed the Volksfest<br />

as the “Rosenheimer Herbstfest” shortly afterwards.<br />

The then autumn festival committee also set<br />

the duration of the event to 16 days, which remains<br />

the case to this day, with the scheduling of the start<br />

on the last Saturday in August. With this decision they<br />

also succeeded in winning the large showman enterprises<br />

from all over Bavaria, and indeed the whole of<br />

Germany, for the autumn festival.<br />

This year, the Rosenheim Volksfest will celebrate its<br />

150 th anniversary. The celebrations were already<br />

heralded with the showman meeting of the Bavarian<br />

Showman Association at the Kuko Rosenheim in February<br />

2011. Additionally, the city museum in the Mittertor<br />

opened a special exhibition called “Lockruf und<br />

Tradition – 150 Jahre Rosenheimer Herbstfest” in<br />

May, which will be open up until the end of the anniversary<br />

event on September 11 th . The exhibition includes<br />

historic pictures, posters, postcards, showman<br />

equipment, historic badges and 1-litre beer<br />

mugs, as well as a large exhibition of local costumes.<br />

The drummer pin is also available, which is at the<br />

same time the “festival symbol” for the historic festival<br />

procession on the first Sunday of the event. On<br />

August 14 th , the Rosenheim Bavarian folk music<br />

archive held a promenade concert in the Riedergarten<br />

under the motto “historic autumn festival music”. From<br />

2 p.m. to 4 p.m. a 9-member brass band played<br />

marches, waltzes, polkas and popular music. To mark<br />

the occasion of the 150 th anniversary, this year's event<br />

opens its gates one day earlier, with the traditional<br />

procession of the beer tent patrons and service staff<br />

on the Friday evening of August 26 th . The historic procession<br />

on the first event Sunday (August 28 th ) will<br />

certainly be the highlight of the anniversary celebra-<br />

HAANER <strong>KIRMES</strong><br />

Text: Michael Petersen<br />

The 625 th anniversary Haan Fair is to be<br />

merrily celebrated this year from September<br />

23 rd to 27 th with many special events,<br />

an additional opening day, a historical<br />

market, and a small exhibition at the<br />

premises of the Sparkasse bank.<br />

The fair event, which is traditionally celebrated<br />

in the town centre, is the highlight in the<br />

calendar of events in the garden city located<br />

between Wuppertal and Düsseldorf. A<br />

35,000 m 2 area will be occupied by fairground<br />

attractions of all kinds, amounting to<br />

a front length of about 2,000 metres. The<br />

largest fair event in the Bergisches Land region<br />

has always been happily celebrated,<br />

and ranks among the autumn events in<br />

North-Rhine Westphalia that boast the highest<br />

turnover. Rainer Skroblies from the Haan<br />

town authorities has successfully organised<br />

the event for many years, always carefully<br />

choosing novelty attractions for this venue,<br />

while at the same time also approving regular<br />

participants.<br />

To mark the occasion of the anniversary, the<br />

Haan Fair will be opened already on Friday<br />

at 6 p.m. An hour earlier, an ecumenical<br />

church service will be held in the Catholic<br />

Church in the Köngisstraße. This will be followed<br />

by a festival procession with a nostalgic<br />

tractor and many traditional flags, which<br />

will proceed to the Ferris Wheel, where the<br />

625 th Haan Fair will be officially opened. Additionally<br />

, a minor anniversary exhibition with<br />

historic mounts and numerous pictures of the<br />

Haan Fair will be held on the premises of the<br />

Sparkasse bank. This year, a historical market<br />

on the Königsstraße will be both the heart,<br />

and the most impressive feature of the<br />

event. An ample fairground with<br />

nostalgic rides will be built up in the<br />

centre of a park, including attractions<br />

such as the Caterpillar Ride<br />

(Steiger/Buchholz), Gallopers (Fellerhoff),<br />

Ferris Wheel (Feldmann), “Der<br />

Selbstfahrer” (Müller), “Land des<br />

Lächelns” (Steiger/Buchholz), a<br />

Punch and Judy Show (Wilmering),<br />

and “Hau den Lukas” (Schmidt),<br />

along with tractors, baggage vans<br />

and caravans, as well as a colourful<br />

mixture of nostalgic concession stalls.<br />

Sixteen large ride and funhouse attractions<br />

were chosen for the anniversary<br />

event, including three novelties<br />

for Haan: the “Aqua-Labyrinth” (Markmann),<br />

“Salto Mortale”<br />

(Gusowski/Langenberg), and the<br />

family coaster “Willy der Wurm”<br />

(Roos). While the two annually changing<br />

sites will be occupied by the<br />

“Breakdance No.2” (Bonner) and the<br />

dodgem track “Drive In” (Schmidt),<br />

the following attractions will be deployed<br />

on the Kaiserstraße and the<br />

market: “Südsee-Wellen” (Barth), the<br />

Ferris Wheel “Wonder Wheel”<br />

(Bruch/Schneider), “Octopussy”<br />

(Markmann), “Bayernwippe”<br />

(Krüger), “Turbo Force” (Schäfer),<br />

Wave-Swinger (Hanstein), “Schloss<br />

Dracula” (Schütze), “Looping the<br />

Loop” (Von Olnhausen), “Phoenix”<br />

(Gusowski), and the Musik Express<br />

(Krause). Moreover, younger visitors<br />

will be able to enjoy thirteen different<br />

kiddie rides this year.<br />

On Sunday, interested visitors will be<br />

able to participate in a backstage tour:<br />

Details and terms of participation are<br />

available at www.haaner-kirmes.de<br />

On Saturday, the city authorities, the<br />

showmen and the bakeries will invite<br />

120 seniors to the traditional plum<br />

cake eating event. On Monday at 9:30<br />

a.m., a church service will be held at<br />

the dodgem track, and the evening<br />

will be dedicated to the motto: “Golden<br />

Oldies”. On Tuesday evening, the<br />

fair event will be closed with a fireworks<br />

display. The opening hours at<br />

the Haan Fair: Friday from 6 p.m., Saturday<br />

and Tuesday from 2 p.m., Sunday<br />

from 11 a.m., and on Monday<br />

from 10 a.m. for the 'early tipple'<br />

event.<br />

PREMIÉRE<br />

Première in Düsseldorf:<br />

Hempen’s “Big Bamboo”<br />

The “Big Bamboo”, the new funhouse<br />

construction with show<br />

elements from Robert and<br />

Michael Hempen from Oldenburg,<br />

successfully celebrated its<br />

première and attracted a high<br />

number of visitors at the largest<br />

fair on the Rhine in Düsseldorf,<br />

providing high spirits and fun<br />

from the very beginning.<br />

Big Bamboo<br />

and good ideas that are realized as perfectly<br />

as possible. Nonetheless, there is<br />

always a significant residual risk. Will the<br />

public actually accept the new funhouse?”<br />

says Robert Hempen. In the case<br />

M<br />

ichael Hempen grew up with shows and caused of the “Big Bamboo”, the answer to this question is<br />

a great furore with the attraction “Das Omen”, most definitely “Yes”. At the Düsseldorf Rheinwiesen,<br />

setting very high standards for himself. His son Robert the construction was not only very well attended but<br />

is now following in his father's footsteps – energetically also provided visitors from all age groups with much<br />

supported by his partner Nadine Ludewigt, and of<br />

course his father. Although Robert Hempen had had<br />

the basic idea for the “Big Bamboo” theme as long ago<br />

as 2007 – the name evoking the magic of the South<br />

Seas, the love of life, the beautiful weather, endless<br />

beaches, the good life, beautiful men and women and,<br />

most significantly, the magical element of water –<br />

preparations and the realization of this new theme<br />

were time-consuming and labour-intensive. While, the<br />

Mike Tegen Studio from<br />

Schleswig-Holstein,<br />

which had already exquisitely<br />

themed “Das<br />

Omen” and “Psycho”,<br />

was contracted to realize<br />

the theme concept<br />

for this Funhouse, the<br />

experienced and absolutely<br />

reliable Dietz<br />

company was chosen<br />

to build the construction.<br />

Together they set<br />

out to bring to life the<br />

project “Big Bamboo”.<br />

PREMIÉRE<br />

Treacherous: the course in the<br />

lower section over shaking footbridges<br />

and bridges, and crossing<br />

on a raft<br />

fun. The visual appearance is<br />

light, friendly and inviting, with<br />

almost every section being<br />

clearly visible to the visitors.<br />

The construction can be divided<br />

into two sections: In the<br />

front, the completely open<br />

course is dominated by the<br />

20,000 litre water basin. Having<br />

bought the tickets, the fun<br />

begins with the visitors being<br />

welcomed and handed a colourful floral Hawaii garland<br />

(which they are allowed to take home) at the<br />

Caribbean bar by friendly staff in appropriate outfit.<br />

Next, visitors have to overcome many obstacles in the<br />

PREMIÉRE<br />

Show effects: Live music<br />

and music videos on the<br />

multimedia screen<br />

water pool in order to reach the big bamboo hut, such<br />

as a short raft trip, shaking bridges, water fountains,<br />

various effects and other surprises. After this, the<br />

course goes across a 10 metre upwardly inclined<br />

bouncing suspended walkway into the inside the bamboo<br />

huts, where visitors encounter further animations<br />

and experiences. It has to be mentioned that an<br />

alternative route up might well be a good idea, as the<br />

movements of the bridge are somewhat too strong for<br />

many a visitor. On arrival at the top, visitors are awaited<br />

by a path through the bamboo jungle, with a<br />

simulated tropical climate across footbridges, bridges<br />

and nets. Attention, though! At the sound of the warning<br />

signal visitors should hold on to something, as a<br />

powerful tropical storm blows<br />

through the “Big Bamboo”. Having<br />

passed the moving and beautifully<br />

decorated “Bora Bora Queen” shipwreck<br />

in the lower section, the magic<br />

of the South Seas is over – and the<br />

visitors go “ashore” across a<br />

treacherous landing stage.<br />

Temporary show acts with pretty<br />

dancing girls rounded off the<br />

Caribbean feeling in Düsseldorf. The<br />

“Big Bamboo” logo, designed by the<br />

afaw firm, is dominantly mounted at<br />

the front of the construction, along with<br />

the some 10 m 2 LED multimedia<br />

screen, continuously showing music<br />

videos matching the theme. Soon,<br />

there will also be live scenes of visitors<br />

making their way through the course of<br />

the entertainment. Visitors should take<br />

their time looking over the attraction,<br />

with its many large and small, lovingly designed decoration<br />

elements that provide this attraction with a unique<br />

and cheerful appearance. Technical details: The “Big<br />

Bamboo” requires three transport vehicles, two of which<br />

are incorporated into the construction that boasts a front<br />

length of 22 metres, a depth of 13 metres and a height<br />

of 16 metres. The collapsible water basin pool holds<br />

20,000 litres of water. Further venues of “Big Bamboo”<br />

will be in Augsburg, Crailsheim and Bremen. ■<br />

Relocating requires three<br />

transport vehicles<br />

PREMIÉRE<br />

Première in Düsseldorf:<br />

Sebastian Küchenmeister’s XXL<br />

Swing “Konga”<br />

The première of the brand new<br />

KMG “XXL” Swing, “Konga”,<br />

from Sebastian Küchenmeister,<br />

was rescheduled to an earlier<br />

date at short notice. Due to exceptional<br />

circumstances, there<br />

was a site left at the Düsseldorf<br />

Rheinwiesen – and Küchenmeister<br />

seized the opportunity to present<br />

his ride for the first time<br />

even at this event, before travelling<br />

on to the Hamburg Sommerdom<br />

as scheduled, where the<br />

“Konga” Swing was nonetheless<br />

officially inaugurated. Up until<br />

now, the family Küchenmeister<br />

has already successfully operated<br />

snack and games booth attractions.<br />

In addition to these<br />

operations, Sebastian Küchenmeister<br />

will now also tour his<br />

first personally owned ride.<br />

During the rescheduled première appearance<br />

in Düsseldorf, the Kirmes & <strong>Park</strong> Revue<br />

interviewed the “Konga” owner, Sebastian<br />

Küchenmeister:<br />

The theme I chose will be further extended; additional<br />

decoration elements and effects are to follow,<br />

with the elements fire and water playing an important<br />

role.<br />

PREMIÉRE<br />

First of all, we would like to congratulate you<br />

on this impressive attraction. What brought<br />

about the decision to purchase this ride?<br />

Although our family has been extremely successful<br />

with games and snack booths up until now,<br />

we also notice lower turnover – especially in the games<br />

sector. I have considered purchasing a ride attraction<br />

now for some time.<br />

When did you finally get serious about it?<br />

It’s a well-known fact that you should dare to invest<br />

and make the right step into a successful future<br />

in economically depressed times. I was searching<br />

for a ride attraction that stood out from other rides,<br />

which offered a timeless ride experience. An overthe-top-ride<br />

was out of the question however, as the<br />

ride was to appeal to as many age groups as possible,<br />

and entice them to take a ride. As swinging is<br />

associated with carefree fun, I probed the market<br />

and hit lucky with the large swing from KMG.<br />

Was KMG your first contact partner?<br />

Yes! Actually I already knew what I wanted when<br />

I contacted them, namely a large swing from KMG.<br />

How did the talks and negotiations with KMG<br />

go?<br />

Who did the painting?<br />

The in-house DB Decorateur artist from KMG<br />

realized the design according to my requirements.<br />

The painting was done with paintbrush, in complete<br />

contrast to former comic paintings.<br />

How was the ride received in Düsseldorf?<br />

It was very well received by the colleagues,<br />

many organisers, our passengers and fairground enthusiasts.<br />

They were highly impressed not only by<br />

the predominating green colour, but also by the large<br />

name sign on the central axis.<br />

So you did everything right?<br />

I think so. I have not yet come to a standstill<br />

though. I carry a lot of responsibility, and it will still<br />

take some time until everything runs smoothly. I<br />

would like to take the opportunity to thank first of all<br />

the St. Sebastianer fairground committee for making<br />

this successful première possible at the largest fair<br />

on the Rhine, as well as the organizers in Hamburg,<br />

Schwelm, Neheim-Hüsten, Hamm, Stuttgart, and<br />

Rheine – my other venues this year. I would also like<br />

to thank my family, without the unquestioning support<br />

of whom I could not have managed a project like<br />

this.<br />

■<br />

“Konga” owner Sebastian<br />

Küchenmeister (l.) with<br />

grandmother Hertha Langner,<br />

as well as his parents Kornelia<br />

and Dieter Küchenmeister<br />

Negotiations were excellent, it could not have been<br />

better. They took their time to explain the ride to me<br />

in minute detail. The technology is impressive. All the<br />

vehicles are incorporated into the ride. additionally,<br />

building up and dismantling this huge swing does<br />

not require a crane. This is perfect and cuts operating<br />

costs considerably.<br />

When did you sign the purchase contract?<br />

In October 2010, when everything was settled<br />

and delivery was scheduled for the first week of July.<br />

Who came up with the name “Konga”, and<br />

the matching theme?<br />

Both came from me as, I wanted a fully themed<br />

ride. The name “Konga”, derived from King Kong,<br />

stands for height and strength.<br />

The design is imposing. Will anything be added<br />

to it?<br />

SPECIAL<br />

Distel’s “<strong>Ikarus</strong>” at its first<br />

Wiesn appearance in 1985<br />

It was the ride that formed the impressive<br />

skyline of the worldfamous<br />

Munich Wiesn from 1985<br />

to 1995 – the “<strong>Ikarus</strong>” from Distel.<br />

It was truly a sensation when this<br />

major ride was built up as a striking<br />

Oktoberfest novelty at the<br />

junction of Mathias Pschorr-<br />

Straße and the Schaustellerstraße<br />

exactly 26 years ago.<br />

What followed on from there was<br />

a colourful life story of this ride,<br />

replete with light and shade, and<br />

now as of the spring of this year,<br />

probably its “good-bye”, as the<br />

“<strong>Ikarus</strong>” has been sold to South<br />

America.<br />

<strong>Ikarus</strong><br />

The 'liaison' Distel/<strong>Ikarus</strong> had begun on October<br />

29 th 1984; the very day of Distel signing<br />

the pre-purchase contract for a “Condor” from the<br />

Bremen manufacturer, Huss. Before the Munich<br />

showman family signed the contract, they had the<br />

opportunity of getting an impression of the “Condor”<br />

from the Stuttgart show woman Juliane<br />

Schmidt, which had just gone into operation – and<br />

they decided in favour of this ride instead. There<br />

were however, also other Munich showmen who<br />

were interested in this construction at that time;<br />

first and foremost the Goetzke firm. In the end, the<br />

decision was in favour of the Distel family. Even<br />

though the showman enterprise was still operated<br />

under the German corporate designation<br />

“GbR” with father Heinz Distel and Eugen Distel's<br />

brother-in-law Wolf Clauß as partners, Eugen Dis-<br />

Eugen Distel<br />

tel was in charge of the deal. The reason for<br />

choosing this type of enterprise was due to the<br />

sad fact that Eugen Distel was in poor health at<br />

that time. He had been diagnosed with cancer,<br />

and nobody was able to foresee the course of the<br />

disease. In spring 1985 the time had come: the<br />

“<strong>Ikarus</strong>” was ready to be collected from Huss; but<br />

just an “aside” worth noting – during the dismantling,<br />

Eugen Distel happened to see the skeleton<br />

manufacturer: a construction called “Breakdance”...<br />

SPECIAL<br />

Build up impressions during<br />

the Distel era<br />

From the Bremen premises, the ride travelled<br />

directly to its première venue, the Maimarkt in<br />

Landau/Palatinate, where the ride could be enjoyed<br />

in all its glory, indeed, the Distel firm had<br />

always presented its attractions in individual,<br />

unique designs. In this case, it set out already with<br />

the current name: “<strong>Ikarus</strong>” was the idea of Wolf<br />

Clauß, and the Distel firm even succeeded in having<br />

the name “protected” at the Huss firm for five<br />

years. Due to its equipment and design – a kind<br />

of “refined antique look” – the ride soon enjoyed<br />

the reputation and the rank of a “noble ride”.<br />

But let us return to the première in Landau – a<br />

venue of excellent reputation at that time: Eugen<br />

Distel recalls that in the course of the event, his<br />

father, his brother-in-law, and he himself were increasingly<br />

disappointed. What had happened?<br />

Answer: The brand new ride had almost no passengers!<br />

Initially, it was not clear whether or not that<br />

was due to respect or simply because the public<br />

was afraid of the 30 metre height. The owners had<br />

watched this fiasco for a number of days before<br />

one of them said: “What in the world have we<br />

done?!” Should the ride really turn out to be a failure<br />

against all expectations? Apprehensively,<br />

they travelled on to the second venue, the<br />

Bergkirchweih in Erlangen, where a heavy burden<br />

fell from the owner’s shoulders from the very opening,<br />

as the “<strong>Ikarus</strong>” was veritably besieged by the<br />

public. This indeed turned out to be the omen of<br />

its ultimate success. Eugen Distel notes; “We had<br />

to organise security due to the rush!” As business<br />

48


SPECIAL<br />

Dismantling scene:<br />

The top mast section is lowered<br />

was also good at the next venues during the<br />

première season which included, among others,<br />

Schweinfurt, Würzburg, Düren, Bad Kreuznach,<br />

and Worms, all doubts were truly dispelled.<br />

Then came the first Wiesn appearance on the<br />

exposed site at the corner of Mathias Pschorr-<br />

Straße and the Schaustellerstraße. An observer<br />

from that time still recalls the eve of the opening<br />

with the lighting test and even a number of free<br />

rides, as well as the breath-taking impression<br />

provided by the ride’s height, its movements, and<br />

lighting array. As a result of the enormous mass<br />

of visitors besieging the attraction also in Munich,<br />

the trailing cable had to be replaced. The station<br />

and waiting area had to be temporarily extended<br />

and a so-called “emergency paybox” was added,<br />

despite the fact that the fare at a Wiesn ride had<br />

reached the “pain threshold” of 5 Marks. Talking<br />

of the “D-Mark”, when the Huss firm launched the<br />

“Condor”, the price was a proud 1.75 million<br />

Marks. Eugen Distel enjoyed the success of the<br />

“<strong>Ikarus</strong>” at the largest Volksfest in the world, even<br />

though he could only watch it from the window of<br />

his caravan, as his disease (which, mercifully, he<br />

ultimately overcame) prevented him from playing<br />

an active role back then. At this stage, his brotherin-law<br />

Wolf Clauß managed the ride. Further<br />

venues following the first Wiesn appearance were<br />

Soest and Wiesbaden. After his recovery, Eugen<br />

Distel gradually perfected the appearance of the<br />

ride, by measures such as adding 'surround<br />

sound' and self-produced jingles. It was the<br />

beginning of the some 5-year heyday of the<br />

“<strong>Ikarus</strong>”.<br />

In 1994, it was decided to redesign<br />

the gondolas. Heinz<br />

Distel had clear ideas for the<br />

redesign and contracted the<br />

An “<strong>Ikarus</strong>” gondola prior<br />

to the redesign in 1994 and a<br />

snapshot from 1996, during the<br />

short “<strong>Ikarus</strong>” period under the<br />

management of Rüdiger in Austria<br />

Has toured almost every<br />

major fairground in Germany:<br />

the “<strong>Ikarus</strong>” in Eisleben, Fürth<br />

and Hamburg (f.l.t.r.)<br />

Göhlert firm to realize them. Eugen Distel recalls;<br />

“My father even moved in there for a week back<br />

then up until all four sample gondolas precisely<br />

matched his ideas.” The result was an impressive<br />

graduation of the colour scheme of the gondolas<br />

that shimmered in all the colours of the rainbow.<br />

By the way, it did not take long until Heinz Distel's<br />

ideas were copied, not least by the “Breakdance”<br />

owners, who adopted the “gondola design”<br />

theme that had not been conceived until then. The<br />

mast of the “<strong>Ikarus</strong>” was covered with reflecting<br />

foil, also shining in all colours after sundown.<br />

Looking back, Eugen Distel also recalls special<br />

events, incidents, and anecdotes he has<br />

experienced during his 11 seasons with the<br />

“<strong>Ikarus</strong>”. For example, looking up from the operator<br />

stand to the highest point of the rotating ride<br />

one evening during an appearance in Würzburg,<br />

he could hardly believe his eyes when he saw a<br />

passenger swap gondolas during the slow sightseeing<br />

round at a height of almost 30 metres! After<br />

a short moment of shock – when the said passenger<br />

had reached the other gondola – Distel<br />

stopped the rotating element, brought it down and<br />

confronted the man. It was an inebriated American<br />

soldier, who explained in a drunken slur: “I<br />

wanted to go to my wife in the other gondola”. Eugen<br />

Distel will also always remember an appearance<br />

at the Frühjahrsmess in Kassel. Due to a<br />

change of staff, Distel had to climb up himself<br />

while dismantling the ride in the early morning<br />

Snapshots from the<br />

Hofmann/Jehn era.<br />

Due to the rush at the Berlin<br />

Christmas Market a borrowed<br />

“Magic” paybox was used<br />

50


hours, forgot an important<br />

step in the procedure,<br />

and was stuck at<br />

the top. As nobody from<br />

the staff knew what was<br />

required to rescue him,<br />

his brother-in-law Wolf<br />

Clauß – who was luckily<br />

not too far away in<br />

Gießen – was called.<br />

Nonetheless Eugen Distel<br />

had to hold out in cold<br />

temperatures until his<br />

“rescuer” arrived who,<br />

after having had a good<br />

laugh at seeing his helpless<br />

brother-in-law stuck on the<br />

top of the mast, freed him from<br />

his predicament. In 1995, the<br />

decision to purchase a new ride<br />

(“Jumping” from Huss) meant<br />

parting with the “<strong>Ikarus</strong>” at the<br />

same time. “In the last few<br />

years, our passengers were almost<br />

only families, so business<br />

grew increasingly weak in the<br />

evenings,” explains Distel, this<br />

being the reason for the<br />

change. The “<strong>Ikarus</strong>” was traded<br />

in for the new ride at Huss<br />

and, surprisingly, showed up<br />

again in Austria at the start of<br />

the 1996 season – presented by<br />

the Rüdiger firm. However, this<br />

new era lasted only about one<br />

Under Blume-Wollenschlaeger,<br />

the “<strong>Ikarus</strong>” developed into a<br />

“myth”, realising a comeback<br />

for the ride – and its renovated<br />

exit<br />

Partner Blume left the GbR<br />

– the “<strong>Ikarus</strong>” was then operated<br />

under the name of Wollenschlaeger<br />

51


SPECIAL<br />

The “<strong>Ikarus</strong>” on<br />

its last journey in Germany,<br />

from Berlin to the Hamburg container<br />

port<br />

April 2011: On arrival<br />

at the Hamburg port, the ride<br />

was reloaded and prepared<br />

for transport by ship to South<br />

America<br />

and a half years. Even in the summer of 1997, the<br />

ride returned to Germany under the management<br />

of the Hofmann/Jehn GbR firm from Leipzig/Eisenach.<br />

In the beginning, it was only toured throughout<br />

Eastern Germany (among other venues, in<br />

Dresden, Peitz, Leipzig, Eisleben, and Magdeburg),<br />

where the “<strong>Ikarus</strong>” was a novelty at many<br />

a fairground. From the second season however,<br />

the “<strong>Ikarus</strong>” also reappeared at its former venues,<br />

being present even at major fairgrounds such as<br />

Bremen, Hamburg, or Fürth. However, as apart<br />

from the occasional exception, its success left<br />

much to be desired, the “<strong>Ikarus</strong>” was temporarily<br />

decommissioned in 2003. Even though a Dutch<br />

52


showman enterprise announced the comeback of<br />

the “<strong>Ikarus</strong>” for 2004, this was in fact never realised.<br />

The ride was then purchased by a completely<br />

different firm, the specially founded<br />

“Blume-Wollenschlaeger GbR Berlin-Bremen” –<br />

cooperation between Charles Blume and Thilo<br />

Wollenschlaeger. They treated the now ageing<br />

attraction to the finest technical and visual overhaul<br />

that captured the hearts of many “<strong>Ikarus</strong>”<br />

fans. The colour of the transport vehicles was<br />

changed from the still existing “Distel red” to<br />

“Blume blue”. Moreover, a new neon name sign,<br />

a powerful Uhlenbrock sound system, plenty of<br />

additional lighting elements, spotlights, and a<br />

fresh colour scheme turned the attraction into a<br />

veritable jewel – without changing its original<br />

character. Additionally, “Der Mhytos” was added<br />

to the name. The new visual appearance was<br />

strongly emphasized by kitting the staff out in Roman-style<br />

costume, and professional commentators<br />

making announcements over the microphone.<br />

Blume-Wollenschlaeger stepped into the<br />

new “<strong>Ikarus</strong>” era at the German-American Volksfest<br />

2004, and after an appearance at the<br />

Freiburg Herbstmesse, they finished the season<br />

at the Christmas Market in front of the “Palast der<br />

Republik” in Berlin. With their operation style and<br />

the racy ride pattern, they apparently tried to<br />

establish the ride as a “Thrill” construction rather<br />

than a family ride, but with limited success. When<br />

Blume left the GbR after almost two seasons,<br />

Wollenschlaeger<br />

put the “<strong>Ikarus</strong>”<br />

into storage. Thilo<br />

Wollenschlaeger<br />

only built up the<br />

attraction again at<br />

the Neukölln Maientage in Berlin in spring 2009 for<br />

TÜV approval and inspection by prospective buyers,<br />

who were also able to examine the ride at the<br />

German-French and the German-American Volksfest<br />

in the capital the same year. And very successfully<br />

too: there was a serious prospective buyer<br />

from South America who, although he not wanting<br />

to sign the purchase contract in October 2009,<br />

made a down payment to underline his serious interest.<br />

After a long period of silence, things finally<br />

got going in early 2011 and the purchase contract<br />

was signed. This April, the “<strong>Ikarus</strong>” transport vehicles<br />

may well have set out on their last journey<br />

through Germany, from Wollenschlaeger’s premises<br />

near Berlin to the Hamburg container port. The<br />

destination of the sea voyage was Santiago de<br />

Chile, the capital of Chile, and then further on to the<br />

“Fantasilandia” amusement park. It has not yet<br />

been revealed when the attraction will go into<br />

operation there.<br />

We would like to end the life story of one of the most<br />

prominent German rides from the last decades with<br />

an unforgettable quote of Hilde Distel, Eugen Distel’s<br />

mother who, sadly, recently passed away: “The<br />

<strong>Ikarus</strong> was our most beautiful ride.<br />

■<br />

Bye Bye “<strong>Ikarus</strong>”...<br />

Thanks to this record-breaking result almost all the<br />

showman operations reported good to very good<br />

turnover. Due to its very modest fair price, the Alpina-<br />

Bahn from Bruch enjoyed great popularity in Wolfsburg,<br />

and the major and round<br />

ride attractions also appealed to<br />

the public. The “Booster Maxxx”<br />

was virtually besieged in Wolfsburg, but the “Rocket”,<br />

the “Around the World” chain ride, and the “Atlantis-<br />

Rafting” were also very well attended.<br />

Placing the “Happy Sailor”, the “Venzianische Pferdekarussell”<br />

and the “kiddie-Baroque-chain ride”<br />

next to each other was somewhat unfavourable<br />

though. They would have fared much better if there<br />

had been a little bit more space between them. This<br />

year’s daily changing programme inside the Marris<br />

beer tent, with the Schützenfest Dinner on Ascension<br />

Day, the show programme from “Captain Cook” and<br />

many VIPs from the political scene as highlights, was<br />

very successful.<br />

All in all, the organizers, the police, and the Red Cross<br />

talked about a peaceful and harmonious family Volksfest<br />

without any unpleasant incidents.<br />

SCHÜTZENFEST HANNOVER<br />

The Schützenfest in Hannover 2011, which<br />

was held from July 1 st to July 10 th and rejoiced<br />

under the grandiose title “largest Schützenfest<br />

in the world”, is now a thing of the past.<br />

Given that the event has pretty much gone<br />

down the tubes during the last few years, an<br />

organizing team headed by Klaus Timaeus<br />

from the Lord Mayor's office had made every<br />

effort to devise a new concept for this traditional<br />

Schützenfest.<br />

On the last opening day almost all the participants<br />

were quite satisfied with the new initiatives, such<br />

as live music acts, a Gardeners Night and the<br />

NDR party. Even the President of the Lower Saxony<br />

Showman Association, Arthur Armbrecht,<br />

concurred with the new concept and reported<br />

positive trends on the Schützenplatz in the state<br />

capital. This year visitor attendance, which according<br />

to the organizer was felt rather than was<br />

real during the last few years, was accurately<br />

logged and announced to have been in the order<br />

of 1 million visitors. Additionally, the new and ap-<br />

Schützenfest skyline<br />

section in the direction of<br />

“The Tower” (Blume)<br />

pealing actions from the Hannover<br />

breweries, which attracted<br />

an increasing number of visitors<br />

to the fairground, earned a<br />

lot of praise as they not only led<br />

to higher beer consumption,<br />

but also benefited the showman<br />

attractions. After continuous<br />

rain during the first weekend,<br />

the weather improved on the<br />

Tuesday, resulting in a noticeable<br />

increase in visitor numbers<br />

from Wednesday on. The Family<br />

Day, the second Fireworks<br />

Friday and the final Saturday<br />

could almost describe the<br />

Schützenplatz as being<br />

thronged with visitors. Such an<br />

event hadn't been seen in<br />

years, and with the considerable<br />

increase in families attending with children,<br />

made most of the participants feel confident. The<br />

operator of the Ferris Wheel appearing at the<br />

Schützenfest for the first time was very much interested<br />

in returning there next year, and operators<br />

of major rides and round rides, reported quite<br />

satisfying results in Hannover. One can only hope<br />

that with the support of the administration and the<br />

Lower Saxony Showman Association, the positive<br />

trend will continue in the coming years and that<br />

“Hannover” will become a special July Volksfest<br />

in the calendar of events once again. ■<br />

ANNABERGER KÄT<br />

“Frisbee” (Zinnecker) in<br />

Annaberg-Buchholz<br />

Text & Photos: Rolf Orschel<br />

From June 25 th to July 3 rd , the 491 st Annaberg<br />

Kät once again enticed ten thousands of visitors<br />

to the large district town. The most traditional<br />

Volksfest in Saxony offered a skilfully<br />

laid out fairground with a number of prominent<br />

novelty ride and funhouse attractions.<br />

As is tradition, the oldest and largest Volksfest in<br />

the Erzgebirge is always held 14 days after<br />

Pentecost. Due to Pentecost falling late this year,<br />

the event began only on the last weekend in<br />

June, overlapping with other large national<br />

events. Nevertheless, visitors from all age<br />

groups were able to enjoy a total of 100 traditional<br />

and modern ride and Funhouse attractions,<br />

as well as many concession stalls on the more<br />

than five hectare fairground below the Pölberg<br />

this year. The “Euro Coaster”, “River-Rafting”,<br />

Lagerin‘s giant chain ride “Luxor”, the “Columbia”<br />

Ferris Wheel (Burghard-Kleuser), Kutschenbauer’s<br />

“Magic House” and the dodgem track<br />

56


“Golden Cars” from Meyer were chosen as Kät<br />

novelties. (Incidentally, the dodgem track from<br />

Hickmann, which has been among the regular<br />

Kät attractions for decades, had a contract for<br />

the Schützenfest in Hannover, which began on<br />

the second Kät weekend.) Other attractions<br />

presented were the Musik Express (Baier),<br />

“Frisbee” (Zinnecker), “Magic” (Müller-Volklandt),<br />

“Breakdance” (Pilz), “Geistervilla” (Zinnecker),<br />

“Sound Machine” (Welte), “Extrem”<br />

Propeller (Boos), “Crazy Outback” (Hofmann-<br />

Jehn), chain ride (Krause), die “Euro Rutsche”<br />

(Kutschenbauer-Roden), and a simulator. Moreover,<br />

children could enjoy the “Super-8-Truck”<br />

from Katzschmann family, Illgen‘s “Bimmelbahn”,<br />

Katzschmann’s kiddie ride, the “Dschungel<br />

Express” (Walther), Fieseler‘s “Kinder Taxi”,<br />

the Jet Ride from Tschou and the pony ride from<br />

Glaß. The selection of attractions was rounded<br />

off by a varied mixture of concession stalls of all<br />

kinds. Although the ride contingent offered a lot<br />

of fairground fun, visitors missed a large first<br />

class attraction this year.<br />

Moreover, it was noticeable that there were an<br />

unusually large number of Dutch showman<br />

operations. Fairground director Christian Eberhardt<br />

commented on the selection criteria and<br />

placement of the rides as follows: “It was pure<br />

coincidence that so many Dutch showmen were<br />

represented at the Annaberg Kät. Initially, it was<br />

not particularly noticeable to us that many of these<br />

operations belonged to Dutch owners or operators.<br />

In the end, this was not important though as<br />

all agreements and contracts were fully met and<br />

realized. We cannot say for sure whether or not<br />

the Kät was on their tour schedule, although we<br />

know that the “Euro Coaster” and the River-Rafting-Bahn<br />

were originally to appear in Bayreuth.<br />

Due to the terraced fairground, the selection and<br />

placement of the attractions not only depends<br />

on their attractiveness and uniqueness, but<br />

more importantly on their ground measurements<br />

and the logistics issues involved in their build up<br />

and dismantling.”<br />

Despite the efficient<br />

placement of the<br />

novelties and the appealing<br />

layout of the<br />

fairground, a large<br />

coaster or looping<br />

track, a higher Ferris<br />

Wheel, and a giant<br />

swing were sadly<br />

missed by many a<br />

visitor. In addition to<br />

the annually repeated<br />

highlights, showmen<br />

and visitors were<br />

offered a special<br />

highlight from Monday<br />

to Wednesday,<br />

namely, scenes for a crime-thriller being shot at<br />

the Kät for the first time. The private television<br />

station, “Constantin Television GmbH München”<br />

produced scenes for the TV series “Die<br />

Draufgänger” with leading actors Dominik Boeer<br />

and Jörg Schüttauf for three days. In these<br />

scenes they fought criminals and recklessly endangered<br />

people, right in this fairground setting.<br />

The scenes were shot mainly in the mornings,<br />

among other sets on rides, inside and outside<br />

the beer tent, and on the adjoining sports field.<br />

To capture the special Kät flair, a number of<br />

shootings were also made during opening<br />

hours.<br />

Even though it is indisputable that the Annaberg<br />

Kät is the largest Volksfest in the Erzgebirge,<br />

advertising for the event urgently requires<br />

intensification and to be more widely dispersed.<br />

Only a few posters in the direct vicinity and in the<br />

town, as well as a banner spanning the B 95 federal<br />

highway called attention to the event. It is<br />

preposterous that there was not a single poster<br />

to be seen in the surrounding region and larger<br />

neighbouring cities, such as Zwickau and<br />

Chemnitz.<br />

Additionally, the fairground<br />

was poorly marked for non locals<br />

arriving by car from the direction<br />

of Aue. It is also hard to<br />

fathom that no politicians from<br />

the state government showed<br />

up at the fairground for the<br />

opening or during the Kät.<br />

Nonetheless, the Annaberg<br />

Kät was well worthwhile seeing,<br />

but a carefully prepared<br />

“pick-me-up” would not harm<br />

the largest Volksfest in the<br />

Erzgebirge.<br />

This year’s traditional Kunigundenfest (July 1 st to 5 th )<br />

in Lauf / Pegnitz suffered from adverse weather conditions.<br />

Particularly poor weather on Sunday even led to the<br />

cancellation and postponement of the festival procession<br />

to Monday. The fairground on the Helschen Wiese<br />

was once again occupied by appealing attractions,<br />

however it was lacking a larger ride for young adults.<br />

Further attractions presented this time were the “Happy<br />

Family” (Rüth), “Fliegender Teppich” (Hartmann),<br />

“Hexentanz” (Markmann), “Caesars Wheel” (Landwermann/Henschel),<br />

“Golden Star” (Holler), as well as a<br />

mixture of concession stalls from all sectors. ■<br />

WUNSIEDEL<br />

The ride attraction at the<br />

Volks- und Wiesenfest in Wunsiedel<br />

The 10,000-resident district town in<br />

Upper Franconia celebrated its traditional<br />

Volks- and Wiesenfest for five<br />

days in early July (1 st to 5 th ).<br />

Wunsiedel is not only known for its<br />

porcelain industry, but also for the<br />

Luisenburg Festival and the “Sech-<br />

58


sämtertropfen” liqueur. Heiko Perz from Fürth, who<br />

was in charge of the event for the first time, celebrated<br />

a successful première.<br />

A new broom sweeps clean, as they say, and so there<br />

were a number of new initiatives which were well received<br />

and appreciated by the public. A new feature<br />

was the layout, which led the public past every attraction.<br />

It replaced the old layout with the two streets,<br />

one of which had always been “good”, the other<br />

“bad” – resulting in “winners” and “losers”. This time,<br />

there was an equal chance for all attractions. 23 societies<br />

participating in the opening procession from<br />

the market square to the beer tent set a new record.<br />

Also new this year was Bastian Schuhmann with his<br />

large tent. He would like to return and is confident<br />

about the excellent potential to extend his menu,<br />

which always includes fresh spiced knuckles of ham<br />

and spit-roasted chicken in Franconia. All in all, the<br />

list of participants included 24 showmen, among<br />

which the ride trio – the “Sweety Star” from Werner<br />

Hoech & Sohn, “Polyp” from Manfred Schinkel, and<br />

the “Top Spin” from Hartmut Langhoff as a surprise –<br />

were the highlights. For 40 years, the Perz family has<br />

appeared in Wunsiedel, presenting varying ride attractions<br />

– currently the large dodgem track. They are<br />

familiar with the situation and always combine the<br />

wishes of the town authorities with reality, while at the<br />

same time giving deference to regular participants.<br />

In contrast to the last few years, greater importance<br />

was attached to Wiesenfest procession of school<br />

children this year, and for the finale there was a première<br />

in Wunsiedel – a fireworks display accompanied<br />

by music – which enthralled everybody. The meeting<br />

of the showmen on Monday in the presence of the<br />

town authorities was also livened up with discussions<br />

about the further development of the event. The Police<br />

Chief Inspector praised the five-day event and was<br />

highly satisfied with the newly introduced deposit on<br />

beer mugs, which substantially reduced the usual<br />

amount of broken glass and the number of crimes.<br />

Mayor Karl-Willi Beck gave a highly positive review<br />

and wants to continue the success story, and the<br />

participating showmen talked also of a generally upward<br />

trend. There is still potential for improvement<br />

however, for example, the toilet facilities inside the<br />

tent, which did not come up to standard and required<br />

short-term improvising, due to the sanitary container<br />

on the fairground having been deliberately destroyed<br />

by vandals prior to the event. Moreover, the town<br />

authorities might well improve the advertising of the<br />

Volks- and Wiesenfest on the internet, as it deserves<br />

to be as remarkably well presented on the internet as<br />

at the local Brunnenfest.<br />

SCHWÄBISCH HALL<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Ralf Schmitt<br />

The fair adjoining the Jakobimarkt in Schwäbisch<br />

Hall was held from July 22 nd to 25 th under the management<br />

of the new organiser PL-Event.<br />

The Jakobimarkt consists of a bric-a-brac market<br />

with 130 marketers on the Haalplatz (organised by<br />

the city authorities), and the fair on the Kocherwiesen<br />

in the district of Steinbach. The style of the new organizer<br />

showed in novelty features and changes.<br />

Positively worth mentioning was the clearly improved<br />

and extended advertising for the event. A new beer<br />

garden as a small oasis for resting and relaxing –<br />

slightly off the fairground course and an alternative<br />

to the large beer tent – was very well received. The<br />

kiddie rides built up in this new garden however, did<br />

not really fit in, and did not achieve good results either.<br />

Moreover, two additional large attractions were<br />

built up on the fairground. This may well have<br />

pleased the visitors, but it also decreased the proportions<br />

of the individual showman attractions in the<br />

overall turnover. Strangely enough, the Ferris Wheel<br />

was place on a concession stall site, where it could<br />

not serve as a visual landmark of the fairground, visible<br />

from any distance (especially after sundown).<br />

attended, and the fireworks display had already<br />

been held at the opening on Friday.<br />

The largest fair on the Rhine was ill-fated this<br />

year. Due to cold and rainy weather, financial results<br />

fell far short of expectations. According to<br />

the organizers, visitor attendance at the Rheinwiesen<br />

was about 1 million down on previous<br />

years, despite this year’s event being extended<br />

by one day.<br />

As a result, there has to be a corresponding decline<br />

in turnover. The adverse weather was particularly<br />

bad for the kiddie ride sector, where business was<br />

weak on weekdays as the weather forecast kept<br />

families from visiting the event. The weather may<br />

well not have been the only reason for the decrease<br />

in visitor numbers. As school holidays began only<br />

on the second opening weekend, the kiddie rides<br />

and game booths did not have the usual family public<br />

in the early evening hours. Especially disappointed<br />

was the operator of the Rhine ferry between the<br />

fairground and the medieval city centre, who<br />

achieved the worst turnover ever since he began<br />

the ferry service. This year, the fair opened already<br />

on a Friday for the first time. Unfortunately, the organizer<br />

had failed to advertise this fact. As a result,<br />

the countless posters did not mention the additional<br />

opening day but only the duration of the event.<br />

A LOOK BACK<br />

No pleasure to look at –<br />

but required: the effects<br />

of the new security concept<br />

An opening fireworks display would certainly have<br />

emphasized the importance of the additional day.<br />

However, due to the high costs of the new security<br />

concept, there was no money left for a second fireworks<br />

display.<br />

The opening of the fair took place at the main entrance<br />

near the Oberkassel Bridge on Friday at 2<br />

p.m. Unfortunately, the deliberate arson attack on<br />

the “Glücks-König” Continental Pick Stand cast a<br />

shadow over the opening day. When police investigation<br />

and the dismantling of the burnt down ruin<br />

was over, the gap was filled by another Continental<br />

Pick Stand and a kiddie ride. In the afternoon of the<br />

new opening day, business was quite modest. As<br />

visitors started to arrive at the fairground only at<br />

about 7:30 p.m., business on the additional day im-<br />

A LOOK BACK<br />

STATISTICS<br />

Due to a strong police<br />

presence, the<br />

Rheinwiesen fair was<br />

once again an unusually<br />

peaceful<br />

event, with only minor<br />

disputes, 47 people<br />

banished from the<br />

fairground, and 15<br />

thefts. 725 people received<br />

on-site treatment<br />

and 105 people<br />

were taken to hospital.<br />

The Public Order<br />

Office towed away<br />

420 illegally parked<br />

vehicles and issued<br />

2,500 parking fines.<br />

proved only in the evening hours, with the aforementioned<br />

consequences for a number of sectors.<br />

After the opening of the Schützenfest on Saturday<br />

however, visitors rushed to the fairground, and the<br />

event enjoyed a high visitor attendance in the early<br />

afternoon. Unfortunately, heavy rainfall at the best<br />

time of the day prevented excellent results this day.<br />

Nonetheless, it was amazing how long the visitors remained<br />

on the fairground despite the poor weather.<br />

On the first Sunday, Düsseldorf had a dream day<br />

with masses of visitors, as many indeed as on its<br />

best days to date, and guests were not exactly<br />

reluctant to spend their money. The promising Sunday<br />

was quickly followed by disillusionment due to<br />

business on the otherwise 'strong-turnover Pink<br />

Monday' being weak; indeed, to an extent never before<br />

experienced. While business on the weekdays<br />

was also rather slow, the Friday fared somewhat<br />

better, including a fireworks display exceeding all<br />

previous dimensions, and due to the Rheinbahn<br />

transport service transporting 800,000 passengers<br />

on the day. Indeed, the use of public transport was<br />

more popular than ever before: 85 percent of the<br />

visitors arrived at the fairground by bus or tram.<br />

Nonetheless, sales of the favourable combi-ticket<br />

were low – only 1,000 tickets were sold. Due to<br />

criss-crossing of visitor masses, something of a logjam<br />

occurred in front of the Alpinabahn in the<br />

evening hours. After a 20-minute impasse, the new<br />

security concept intervened. The security personnel<br />

were able to channel the visitor masses and<br />

reroute them along the illuminated escape routes.<br />

While super Friday was followed by a very good<br />

Saturday, the closing day was virtually washed<br />

away, bringing about further losses.<br />

Never before had a gap between winners and<br />

losers on a fairground been so wide. Financial results<br />

in a number of sectors were not only affected<br />

by the weather, the placement also played an<br />

important role. Open rides and beer gardens suffered<br />

more seriously from the weather than roofed<br />

rides and beer tents, the latter having been always<br />

well frequented. What about the Füchschen and the<br />

Uerige tent: Were they really missed? No, the<br />

guests simply switched to other tents. The new twolevel<br />

(but somewhat spartan) Diebels tent and the<br />

new Schumacher barn could not really complain<br />

about a lack of visitors. Those drinking Füchschen<br />

beer were served their usual brand of beer in the<br />

“Tiroler Dorf”, where they celebrated happily. Talking<br />

of the “Füchschen”: In the festschrift of the organizer,<br />

the brewery announced that it will “have a<br />

hell of a party at the Rheinwiesen 2012”. How can<br />

they make such a proclamation? The approval<br />

decision is made by the organiser, and not by the<br />

applicant, or not? While the majority of gastronomic<br />

operations and beverage outlets were first-class<br />

and well worth seeing, the appearance of a beverage<br />

attraction on the former “Uerige” site was more<br />

than pathetic. A more appealing showman attraction<br />

would have been preferable in this location.<br />

As Sebastian Küchenmeister's giant swing “Konga”<br />

was approved to the largest fair on the Rhine<br />

at the very last minute, two new attractions celebrated<br />

their début at the Düsseldorf Rheinwiesen. The<br />

Hempen firm also managed to punctually open its<br />

novelty “Big Bamboo”. The anxiously expected “Rio<br />

Rapidos” rafting ride from the Kaiser family, however,<br />

was unfortunately not completed in time for<br />

the event. Due to the cancellations of the rafting ride<br />

62


as well as the announced “Höllentaxi”, there were<br />

a number of changes on the site map, which affected<br />

the layout of the fairground significantly. As a<br />

result, all the towering giants were built up in direct<br />

proximity to each other – except for the “Star Flyer”.<br />

“Konga” and “Booster-Maxxx” were placed back to<br />

back, “High Energy” occupied the bay within sight<br />

of the “Flash”, together with the Ferris Wheel and<br />

the “Power Tower” – quite a sensory overload. However,<br />

it offered many appealing motifs for the photographers.<br />

It must also be said that there are also unfavourable<br />

sites for ride attractions, for example, the one occupied<br />

by the “Flash” this year. In previous years, the<br />

“Airwolf” and the “Phoenix” had already struggled<br />

to cope there. From this location, visitors apparently<br />

only had eyes for the large attraction occupying<br />

the bay on the banks of the Rhine, where the “Fünfer-Looping”<br />

was presented as another top attraction.<br />

Even the nostalgic “Der Selbstfahrer” dodgem<br />

track did not fare too well in the vicinity of the steel<br />

giant. Richard Müller presented the track with new<br />

backflash tarpaulins, fences and name signs.<br />

Moreover, he exhibited an old dodgem car and an<br />

old traction unit.<br />

While layout mistakes like this are not noticeable to<br />

the visitors, they may well mean heavy financial<br />

losses for the showmen. It speaks in favour of the<br />

organizer however, that it was a very different<br />

Rheinwiesen than during previous years. The<br />

tragedy during the Duisburg Love parade has left<br />

its marks in the layout of fair events. Delays due to<br />

the new security concept, the cancellation of a<br />

large novelty, the fire at the Continental Pick Stand,<br />

short-term cancellations, and newly approved attractions<br />

changed the image of the fair almost hourby-hour.<br />

Moreover, more sensible relocations were<br />

not always possible, as many showmen had already<br />

built up their attractions. This was also the<br />

reason for the concentration of the “highlights”.<br />

Next year, everything will look even better in Düsseldorf<br />

and the time schedule will be changed.<br />

There will be no more pressure caused by the new<br />

security concept, as the new additional escape<br />

routes and escape staircases are now determined.<br />

Fortunately, the head of the fairground committee,<br />

Thomas König, is always willing to take a risk. True,<br />

premières of major rides or Funhouse attractions<br />

present a risk. Nonetheless two large attractions<br />

were able to make their début in Düsseldorf this<br />

year.<br />

Due to the arson attack and an accident at a ride,<br />

this year’s fair attracted a lot of local and national<br />

media coverage. During the run-up to the event,<br />

there were many reports about the cancellation of<br />

the two beer tents, which was tantamount to an<br />

earthquake. Then there was the arson attack on the<br />

opening day, and finally a child fell out of a ride and<br />

was slightly injured. The latter incident was largely<br />

blown out of all proportion by the local reporters,<br />

who described exaggerated flight heights which,<br />

were they accurate, the child would surely have<br />

been able to fly! The hyperbole of many reporters<br />

truly knew no bounds! Moreover, there was once<br />

again the well-known biased report about the<br />

prices on the fairground; neither could the press do<br />

without the usual testing of fairground attractions<br />

this year. Is that really necessary over and over<br />

again?<br />

That was the Rheinwiesen 2011 that the showman<br />

industry had pinned its hopes on. Summary: The<br />

expensive security concept was excellent; all the<br />

visitors kept calm in the pushing crowd on Friday<br />

evening and were rerouted by the security personnel<br />

after just a short time. Financial results fell far<br />

short of the Düsseldorf possibilities, for which the<br />

weather was largely to blame. However, there were<br />

also a number of things that require changes. The<br />

additional Friday has to be intensely advertised and<br />

livened up by special actions, such as a happy hour<br />

in the afternoon, and a fireworks display in the<br />

evening hours. On dry days Düsseldorf has<br />

demonstrated its possibilities and just how many<br />

IN MEMORIAM<br />

On July 7 th 2011, Gottlieb Löffelhardt,<br />

founder of Phantasialand,<br />

passed away at the age of 76<br />

years in Brühl, after a long illness.<br />

With his death, the industry<br />

has lost a showman of the old<br />

school, held in the highest esteem<br />

by all within the professional<br />

sphere, who succeeded<br />

unfailingly in realizing all his visions,<br />

and did so within so many<br />

sectors of the amusement industry.<br />

With the numerous ride attractions<br />

that he presented either<br />

on the fairgrounds or in his own<br />

amusement parks, he enthralled<br />

millions of people throughout<br />

his life, bringing them unforgettable<br />

and truly distinctive hours<br />

of entertainment – be it in Germany,<br />

Brazil, or Italy.<br />

The young Gottlieb Löffelhardt<br />

with his father and the “Höllental-Express”<br />

GOTTLIEB LÖFFELHARDT<br />

Gottlieb Löffelhardt was born in Berlin on December<br />

25 th , 1934. As the christian name<br />

“Gottlieb” had been handed down from generation<br />

to generation within the showman dynasty of Löffelhardt<br />

ever since 1851, he already ranked as the<br />

fourth “Gottlieb”, also called “Sohni” by many. His<br />

father Gottlieb Löffelhardt was a Wall of Death rider,<br />

just as were his brothers Peter and Franz. He began<br />

his career himself in the very same capacity as a<br />

rider on the Hugo Haase Wall of Death, which he<br />

took over himself later on, and where he met his future<br />

wife Hertha, whom he married in 1932. The<br />

young Löffelhardt family settled down in Berlin Treptow.<br />

In 1936, his father added<br />

the first ride, “Raketenfahrt zum<br />

Mond”, to the Wall of Death. Due<br />

to its great success, he purchased<br />

yet another attraction,<br />

namely the “Großglocknerbahn”<br />

shortly afterwards. Both<br />

attractions were toured in the<br />

Gottlieb Löffelhardt during one of his last<br />

public appearances: In Rome in October 2010<br />

Berlin region, and in the eastern regions of Germany.<br />

With the Second World War approaching, the Löffelhardts<br />

started a second career so to speak, by<br />

founding a haulage firm. Despite the terrible war, the<br />

haulage company worked at full capacity, whereas<br />

the two rides and the Wall of Death were closed<br />

down. In this way, the Löffelhardts were able to survive<br />

the war. In 1948 they moved their offices to<br />

Hamburg, giving up the haulage firm and concentrating<br />

on the showman business. The Wall of Death<br />

was reactivated and a Ghost Ride called “Höllental<br />

Express” was purchased.<br />

At the age of 18, he made the first major decision in<br />

his career and joined his parents' firm in 1950. His<br />

father offered him two options; either a salary of<br />

2,500 marks as a manager or 70 marks “pocket<br />

money” and a 30 percent share in the property of<br />

the family. Gottlieb Löffelhardt chose the 30 percent<br />

and became a partner in the family enterprise. As<br />

business boomed, further attractions were purchased<br />

in the following years, an additional multistorey<br />

Ghost Ride taken over from Austria, and a<br />

dodgem track from Zierer. One of the two Ghost<br />

Rides was elaborately rebuilt into the “Globetrotter”<br />

by Anton Schwarzkopf in Münsterhausen.<br />

Next, the manufacturer Mack was contracted to<br />

build the racy “Fahrt zum Mars” Ghost Ride. At this<br />

point in time, if not sooner, the future core competency<br />

of the Löffelhardt operations was clearly discernible:<br />

Ghost Rides. In 1955, a daring step was<br />

taken and the “Düsenspirale” ordered from<br />

Schwarzkopf. The project was however, almost a financial<br />

disaster. The time-consuming construction of<br />

the complex and heavy construction was marred by<br />

numerous delays, almost ruining both Löffelhardt<br />

and Schwarzkopf. When it eventually joined the tour,<br />

66


Franz Schwarzkopf had to come along as chief engineer<br />

in order to ensure the build up and dismantling,<br />

as well as the operation of the clumsy “Düsenspirale”.<br />

After these troublesome experiences, business<br />

relations between Schwarzkopf and Löffelhardt<br />

were put on hold for the first time. Over the<br />

years, the existing “Globetrotter” was repeatedly redesigned<br />

and thrilled its passengers as the “Orient<br />

Express”, or as “Spukschloss” to the very end of its<br />

service. Looking back, Löffelhardt summarised it<br />

thus: “Among all the Ghost Rides we owned, the<br />

‘Spukschloss’ was the most successful."<br />

In 1963 Löffelhardt took over the “Geisternacht im<br />

Urwald” from Willenborg. In the meantime, a number<br />

of attractions were operated as partnerships<br />

and with relatives as leaseholders, such as Walter<br />

Löffelhardt or Christel Löffelhardt, who together with<br />

her husband Paul Stratemans, operated a Ghost<br />

Ride on a contract basis in order to purchase it at a<br />

later date.<br />

During the period of Germany's so-called economic<br />

miracle, the booming enterprise benefited from the<br />

sound understanding between father and son Gottlieb.<br />

They continued to invest in attractive and appealing<br />

ride attractions, such as a “Jaguar” Musik-<br />

Express and the “Luftwipper” from the Mack firm<br />

from Waldkirch. When the latest ride attractions from<br />

the Klaus firm from Memmingen were in strong demand<br />

a little later, the “Hula Hoop”, “Tolle Jolle“,<br />

“Mondtaxi”, and an Allround were operated under<br />

the management of the “Löffelhardt Betriebe”. As<br />

competition for profitable events, such as the<br />

Cannstatt Wasen, Munich Oktoberfest or Bremer<br />

Freimarkt became increasingly fierce, Gottlieb Löffelhardt<br />

searched for a 'competitive edge' and discovered<br />

the system of the Scandinavian Tivolis,<br />

whereupon he organized permanent sites for a<br />

number of his operations in Copenhagen, Gothenburg<br />

and Stockholm. According to a closed swap<br />

system, rides such as the “Hula Hopp” were built up<br />

for a whole season, so the attraction paid for itself<br />

over an extended period of time. Löffelhardt operated<br />

within this distinctive system up until 1965.<br />

On December 16 th 1960, Gottlieb Löffelhardt married<br />

Astrid Ercoli, the daughter of an Italian-German<br />

showman. At the same time, the 25 th anniversary of<br />

the “Löffelhardt Betriebe” was celebrated. In 1964<br />

their son Robert Gottlieb Löffelhardt was born, followed<br />

by their daughter Astrid in 1969. Gottlieb Löffelhardt's<br />

chance meeting with the puppeteer<br />

Richard Schmidt at the world-famous Berlin Wintergarten<br />

Varieté had far-reaching consequences. In<br />

many conversations about how<br />

to use the lovingly and elaborately<br />

carved puppets and stage<br />

scenery, particularly after the decline<br />

of the great film era, they ultimately<br />

came up with the crucial<br />

question: “Why not found a fairytale<br />

theme park?” The idea of<br />

Phantasialand was born! While<br />

Richard Schmidt made the first<br />

figures and scenes in a vacant<br />

chair factory, Löffelhardt was in<br />

charge of the commercial promotion.<br />

The decision in favour of<br />

Brühl was not entirely coincidental,<br />

as Schmidt lived in Brühl,<br />

where he knew everybody, from<br />

the Mayor to the director of the<br />

bank. The new park of the two<br />

visionaries was built on the former<br />

brown coal field, “Berggeist”.<br />

On the very day of the<br />

opening, Brühl’s former Mayor<br />

Robert Ehl warned them; “...<br />

don’t go bankrupt too soon!”<br />

His worries were unfounded<br />

though, as 400,000 visitors were<br />

welcomed to Phantasialand<br />

even in the first season. Gottlieb<br />

Löffelhardt recalled: “The visitors<br />

virtually besieged the park even<br />

“Globetrotter” and “Düsenspirale”<br />

Löffelhardt rides:<br />

“Luftwipper”, “Hula Hoop”, and<br />

the “Mondtaxi”<br />

on opening day on April 30 th 67


IN MEMORIAM<br />

“Polyp” and the<br />

suspended Ghost Ride<br />

“Fliegender Teppich”<br />

At Phantasialand:<br />

gondola ride “1001 Nacht”<br />

and the water ride<br />

1967. Our wives gave us all<br />

the required support. At first,<br />

we wanted them to join us in<br />

the tour of the park along with<br />

the guests of honour, but the<br />

rush of visitors was simply too<br />

great, and so they sold ice<br />

cream and popcorn clad in<br />

cocktail dresses”. The visitors<br />

were enchanted by the<br />

scenes in the fairytale forest,<br />

experienced an artful puppet<br />

theatre on the open-air stage, or enjoyed themselves<br />

in the adventure playground. They were also<br />

able to do a round-the-world tour in a veteran car,<br />

go on the western-style railroad to the cowboys and<br />

Indian venue, or enjoy a Viking boat ride, or a bathtub<br />

ride on the lake. There were days when the<br />

streets all around Brühl were blocked for many kilometres.<br />

Even in the early morning hours, lines of<br />

cars rushed in the direction of Phantasialand.<br />

Richard Schmidt stood inconsolably at the Autobahn<br />

exit and waved the disappointed families on<br />

when the park had already been closed due to overcrowding.<br />

Nobody could have guessed that the<br />

small fairytale park would develop into one of the<br />

largest amusement parks in Europe over the next 40<br />

years.<br />

Löffelhardt, together with his parents, continued to<br />

operate his successful showman emporium in addition<br />

to the newly opened Phantasialand. In 1966,<br />

the Memmingen Klaus firm built a “Polyp” for Löffelhardt.<br />

As he was not satisfied with the delivered<br />

metal sheet gondolas, the Phantasialand employee<br />

Hoffmann created the typical fish-chaise, which was<br />

then installed in both Löffelhardt “Polyp” rides. In the<br />

meantime, the shape was copied by numerous firms<br />

and can be found today on many Polyp rides and<br />

Ghost Rides. Only twelve years after the disaster<br />

with the Düsenspirale, Löffelhardt purchased a new<br />

ride from Anton Schwarzkopf; the travelling suspended<br />

Ghost Ride “Fliegender Teppich”. It was a<br />

magnificent ride in an oriental design, equipped<br />

with a lushly decorated façade and marked the<br />

beginning of a long-term, trustful and friendly cooperation<br />

between Gottlieb Löffelhardt and Anton<br />

Schwarzkopf, which proved to be very successful.<br />

On September 17 th 1969, Gottlieb Löffelhardt suffered<br />

a cruel blow of fate when his parents, Gottlieb<br />

and Hertha Löffelhardt, died in a serious traffic accident<br />

near Hiltpoltstein on their way to the Munich<br />

Oktoberfest. Notwithstanding this tragedy, the park<br />

was extended thereafter from year to year.<br />

In 1970, the Schwarzkopf Gondola Ride “1001<br />

Nacht” was added, which was modelled on the suspended<br />

Ghost Ride “Fliegender Teppich” and the<br />

“Alt-Berlin” theme area was inaugurated. Henceforth,<br />

the “Phantasialand-Jet” Monorail, built in Münsterhausen<br />

as was the Gondola Ride, supplemented<br />

the compliment at the Phantasialand. On the fairgrounds<br />

however, the brand new, imposing “Geister<br />

Rikscha” from Mack went into operation, which<br />

was to be the last newly purchased travelling ride<br />

for the Löffelhardt Betriebe. A cooperation was embarked<br />

upon with the Rick firm from Hannover, and<br />

together they operated the “Jumbo Jet” coaster –<br />

huge by the standards of that time – until they were<br />

able to sell it to the USA. As Gottlieb Löffelhardt decided<br />

to concentrate on the park from then on, the<br />

first notices of sale appeared. One of the two Klaus<br />

“Polyp” rides was built up in Phantasialand, while<br />

the remaining attractions – including materials –<br />

were sold. Shortly after the opening of Phantasialand,<br />

Löffelhardt and Schmidt made further investments,<br />

as the amusement park industry continued<br />

to boom. They invested for example, about three<br />

quarters of a million into the first German Lion <strong>Park</strong><br />

in Tüddern, run by the animal trainer and artist Hans<br />

Rosenberg, to offer the Germans the pleasure of a<br />

safari. As another investment, Gottfried Löffelhardt<br />

bought a share in the “Playcenter” in São Paulo,<br />

Brazil. Due to the energetic support from Gottlieb<br />

Löffelhardt and the numerous used rides from German<br />

manufacturers that he brought to Brazil, the<br />

São Paulo <strong>Park</strong> became a top venue. The park in<br />

Brühl-Badorf continued to grow. When the first water<br />

ride in Germany was built by Löffelhardt himself,<br />

it provided the park visitors a welcome cooling down<br />

in summer. In the western theme area, the large An-<br />

ton Schwarzkopf Coaster “Bobbahn 1” (later on<br />

“Gebirgsbahn”) was built up, which was covered by<br />

an artificial mountain range during the following season.<br />

Another coaster, the “Bobbahn 2” – an Alpenblitz<br />

from Schwarzkopf, which was later known as<br />

“Grand Canyon Bahn” – was incorporated into the<br />

“Bobbahn 1”.<br />

The large fire on May 1 st 2001 belongs to the darker<br />

side of the history of the park. Due to a technical<br />

fault, a fire broke out on the “Grand Canyon Bahn”<br />

and spread to the mountain range, so that both rides<br />

quickly burnt down. Luckily, all the passengers were<br />

able to be rescued, thanks to the determined action<br />

taken by the staff. Another landmark was the opening<br />

of the “China-Town” theme area in 1981 after a<br />

construction time of two years, where hundreds of<br />

construction workers, craftsmen, and artists from<br />

Taiwan assembled millions of individual sections<br />

delivered from China. Schmidt and Löffelhardt were<br />

the first Europeans to be awarded with the “Chinese<br />

Culture Medal” in Taipei.<br />

In 1987, the magicians Siegfried and Roy presented<br />

Phantasialand with two white Bengal tigers for its<br />

20 th anniversary, and to mark the 25 th anniversary<br />

visitors were able to enjoy an appearance of the two<br />

magicians themselves. In May 1996, Löffelhardt<br />

pulled off a much-noticed PR coup, when he enticed<br />

Michael Jackson to Brühl – where the legendary star<br />

opened the brand new Vekoma Mine Coaster as the<br />

“Colorado Adventure – “The Michael Jackson Thrill<br />

Ride”, no less! The creative Richard Schmidt had already<br />

retired in 1994 and sold his share to Löffelhardt’s<br />

son, Robert. As a result, Phantasialand became<br />

purely a family enterprise. About 4 years later,<br />

Robert Löffelhardt took over the sole management<br />

of the park, which he had operated with his father<br />

Gottlieb until then. At the same time, the share<br />

in the Brazilian “Playcenter” was sold off, while Gottlieb<br />

Löffelhardt was offered an opportunity in Italy almost<br />

simultaneously. The Mirabilandia <strong>Park</strong> near<br />

Ravenna in Italy, opened by a financial syndicate in<br />

July 1992, enticed only about 650,000 visitors annually,<br />

instead of the targeted 2 million. After numerous<br />

problems, the park was sold to Gottlieb Löffelhardt<br />

and his partner Giancarlo Casoli in November<br />

1996, for which the sophisticated Löffelhardt<br />

even moved to Italy. Within only a couple of years –<br />

marked by high investments into appealing attractions<br />

such as the B&M Coaster “Katun”, or the huge<br />

prominent Ferris Wheel from PAX – annual visitor attendance<br />

increased to some 1.5 million. In 2006,<br />

Mirabilandia was sold to the Spanish chain Parques<br />

Reunidos. Löffelhardt no longer participated in business<br />

affairs after that, “I am, and remain in retirement”,<br />

he said.<br />

Indeed, Gottlieb Löffelhardt – who enthralled the<br />

public – has always avoided the limelight. He once<br />

told a journalist: “Nobody knows Gottlieb Löffelhardt;<br />

you had better<br />

interview my partner,<br />

Richard Schmidt. He<br />

has much more to<br />

tell, and his work is<br />

much more conspicuous.”<br />

Nonetheless,<br />

regular visitors to<br />

Phantasialand knew<br />

his face, as he had a<br />

house with access to<br />

the park, which he<br />

used for his daily<br />

tours of the park until the very last.<br />

Throughout all these decades he has never forgotten<br />

his roots, and so tirelessly stepped in to show<br />

support for all showman industry concerns at a social<br />

and political level. He could be regularly seen<br />

on various fairgrounds talking to old-time fellow travellers<br />

and friends such as Fritz Hoppe. Additionally,<br />

he worked as an expert advisor for amusement<br />

and event parks for the DSB (German Showman<br />

Association), while he also travelled as an ambassador<br />

for the European Showman Union. He also attended<br />

showman industry events, such as the annual<br />

IAAPA or the “The European Theme <strong>Park</strong> Legends”<br />

forum at the EAS 2010 in Rome, where he<br />

spoke about his ample experiences, and his rich<br />

lifetime's work.<br />

With his commitment, his courage and his visions,<br />

Gottlieb Löffelhardt made Phantasialand into one of<br />

the largest and most popular amusement parks in<br />

Europe. With his cheeky and fine sense of humour,<br />

his willingness to help and his respect for other people,<br />

he made friends all over the world. On one<br />

hand, the Phantasialand founder will always be remembered<br />

as a brilliant entertainer, and on the other,<br />

as a tough but fair businessman whose motto in<br />

life was to “make people happy”.<br />

TOP ACT<br />

BA view from the lift<br />

hill onto the new attraction:<br />

in background the Intamin<br />

coaster<br />

A real pirate needs his own treasure<br />

island, and most probably<br />

that’s exactly what Djurs-Sommerland-Boss<br />

Henrik B. Nielsen<br />

must have thought when placing<br />

the “Skatteoen“ (Treasure Island)<br />

without further ado next to his Intamin<br />

MegaLite-Coaster, and<br />

with that upgrading the Pirate<br />

Land of Djurs massively.<br />

Text & Photos: Tim Herre<br />

Not only the new water<br />

coaster, but the great theming<br />

is a an eye catcher<br />

Skatteøen<br />

Initially the reactions were more or less reserved –<br />

after all “Skatteoen” looked to be no more than a<br />

half clone of the “Poseidon” on paper. But the eyes<br />

take in a ride as well, and there’s quite a bit of choice<br />

visible on the snappy ride. The condition of the construction<br />

at the opening was quite remarkable for<br />

these days as well: it appears that Djurs doesn’t<br />

work according to custom, because in this case the<br />

ride was totally completed before handing it over to<br />

the public.There were no construction fences and<br />

no scaffolding – at Nimtofte novelties are presented<br />

on the first day as though they were always<br />

there. In actual fact this should be taken for granted,<br />

but unfortunately – particularly in Europe – the<br />

situation has developed to being socially<br />

acceptable over the past years to offer ride<br />

guests structural equipment even in the case of<br />

the most standard of rides, and the decoration,<br />

if there is any, is delivered step by step over the season.<br />

In such cases it’s quite regularly the “hard winter”<br />

that was responsible for making building work<br />

impossible. On that note one must ask the question<br />

as to whether the weather in northern Jutland is<br />

different to anywhere else in Europe!<br />

The park has installed an authentic little pirate<br />

village in cooperation with the theming specialists,<br />

the Danish firm Creation Group from Ringsted.<br />

Everything appears very upmarket and continues<br />

the ever-present high quality of the rest of the<br />

“Pirate Land”. Even the artificial rocks, mixed with<br />

gunned concrete and small pebbles, manufac-<br />

RIDE FACTS<br />

tured by the Danish Rockbuilder firm from Odense,<br />

give the whole area an authentic appearance.<br />

The station is in the style of a small castle ruin; however<br />

before even reaching the station, guests must<br />

walk through a complete area – similar to that of big<br />

brother at Europa-<strong>Park</strong>. There’s nothing left to be<br />

desired for the junior pirate: ship wreck, scull-rocks<br />

– everything’s there. In the station the first figures<br />

are waiting: a creepy pirate skeleton sends the ride<br />

guests off in the search of treasure. The ride travels<br />

past other victims of the greedy ones, as the pirate<br />

colleagues all appear to be rather emaciated,<br />

not to mention bony. The treasure can be admired<br />

a short time later, but unfortunately a huge<br />

octopus has cleverly put it under its<br />

tentacles. Oh well then, it’s off to the top:<br />

the following lift stretches 28 metres into<br />

the air, which is followed by a large bend<br />

to the right, a small decent and through the<br />

block brakes, which is all followed by the<br />

first large curvy drop that sends the boat<br />

almost to ground level, then into a wide<br />

right curve that causes an ascent to almost<br />

20 metres. Following another block brake,<br />

which during normal operation doesn’t<br />

really have any braking function, there are<br />

two other drops, which in the process become<br />

steeper with a resulting impressive<br />

airtime effect that is so cherished on the<br />

“Poseidon”. The boat in this case also<br />

drops into a cave and flies then with panache over<br />

a small airtime hill veiled in water spray, before<br />

disappearing into a huge bow wave. And naturally<br />

the obligatory “soak zone” can’t be missing on the<br />

“Skatteoen”, which on the day of our visit was<br />

sensationalised by a number of obstinate Danes,<br />

despite the moderate temperatures.<br />

Summary: The best parts of “Poseidon” have been<br />

packed into the “Skatteoen” with refreshing<br />

application. The ride has been excellently choreographed<br />

and is lots of fun from the first to the last<br />

second. Even in the point of staging, “Skatteoen” is<br />

at the very least very worthy.<br />

COASTER<br />

The new “Gipfelstürmer”<br />

at Freizeitpark Ruhpolding<br />

is a family-Boomerang<br />

Germany’s coaster world has<br />

been enriched by a new construction<br />

without a great amount<br />

of fuss or public sensation.<br />

Whilst the Movie <strong>Park</strong> Germany<br />

novelty, Heide-<strong>Park</strong>, and<br />

even Bayern <strong>Park</strong> are well<br />

courted and attract much<br />

attention, Freizeitpark Ruhpolding<br />

simply put its “Gipfelstürmer”<br />

into operation.<br />

Gipfelstürmer<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Jochen Peschel<br />

The park and its attractions<br />

don’t want to be noticeable<br />

at just any price, but offer more<br />

of a nature experience<br />

It was originally founded by Ernst Schuster as a<br />

fairytale park in 1967, but very soon he had other<br />

plans, and built the Franconian Wunderland that<br />

opened in 1976. He sold the area in Ruhpolding in<br />

1979 to Peter Aigner Sr. who had already started to<br />

build up a fairytale park in 1970 in Marquartstein,<br />

only 30 kilometres away from Ruhpolding. In the<br />

interim the attractions have been taken over by his<br />

sons. The older son Peter Aigner Jnr. operates the<br />

Märchen-Erlebnispark Marquartstein, whilst Ludwig<br />

Aigner has managed Ruhpolding since 1997.<br />

A few years later, he changed the name into<br />

Freizeitpark Ruhpolding. But an amusement park<br />

needs a coaster, and so already at the turn of the<br />

century the decision had been made to extend the<br />

supply of attractions. Initially though investment<br />

was made in the infrastructure, and in the years<br />

from 2004 to 2006 the restaurant “Tischlein deck<br />

Dich” was constructed, with the simultaneous closing<br />

of the area north-west from it. It was first in 2009<br />

that thoughts regarding the coaster became more<br />

concrete again.<br />

74


The park is located on a forested mountainside,<br />

which on the one hand contributes to a setting with<br />

lots of atmosphere, but at the same time this also<br />

means that there is hardly any level area available<br />

of a considerable size. So it was obvious right from<br />

the start that the coaster had to fit in with the topography.<br />

Additionally the construction was to be<br />

something special: “We couldn’t score with the<br />

length, so we needed a good idea, a special gag”,<br />

explained Ludwig Aigner. So the focus was on a<br />

Shuttle Coaster right from the beginning, which<br />

travels the same course forwards and then reverses.<br />

Ludwig Aigner then contacted Gerstlauer Rides<br />

with these specifications; no other manufacturer<br />

was approached. Although a wooden coaster was<br />

discussed for a short time because this type of<br />

attraction would have integrated excellently into the<br />

overall park picture, but space conditions and extreme<br />

dampness during the traditionally snowy winter<br />

in the area put an end to the idea very quickly.<br />

Following the conclusion of the contract in the<br />

spring of 2010, Gerstlauer began work on the construction<br />

details. A Shuttle Coaster had not yet been<br />

built by the firm, so there were a number of new<br />

aspects to take into consideration. These concerned<br />

in particular the friction drive lift at the end of the<br />

course. A free roll of the operating motors allows the<br />

The track course near the<br />

ground and clinging to the<br />

mountainside is a very special<br />

characteristic of this coaster<br />

The station area will be attractively<br />

designed by next<br />

season<br />

75


COASTER<br />

The ride begins with<br />

a reverse lift, before going<br />

downhill<br />

A trendy parallel turn that<br />

could be found on big coasters<br />

is also built into the course but<br />

in this case is travelled through<br />

too slowly to achieve airtime<br />

train to be taken over smoothly as soon as its speed<br />

corresponds to the speed of the friction drive system.<br />

The ideal contact pressure is determined during<br />

the start up. When the train travels down the<br />

second lift backwards again, the rolling direction of<br />

the friction drive wheels is reversed.<br />

A definite opening date was not scheduled initially,<br />

because the weather in particular can very quickly<br />

have an effect on a timetable. Although Pentecost<br />

was kept in view, “summer” was scheduled as a<br />

precaution. “We had snow from the 10 th of December<br />

until the end of January” said Ludwig Aigner,<br />

so the infrastructure could be completed by the<br />

middle of April without any hectic. The subfloor<br />

comprises of a two to eight metre thick bed of clay<br />

over the rocks, in which anchors were affixed that<br />

carry the 38 foundations. The construction was built<br />

up by the middle of May, followed by putting the attraction<br />

into operation and the TÜV inspection.<br />

And without much ado, the<br />

“Gipfelstrümer” was released to the visitors<br />

on Pentecost Saturday. Although the<br />

station is still very provisional, this will<br />

change in the near future, and the dimensions<br />

are already recognisable on<br />

the massive timber framework. The wood<br />

comes from the family owned sawmill,<br />

and some of the processed trees had<br />

stood in the area that the coaster has<br />

been built on. Currently the roof is covered<br />

with slate shingles, and with that fits<br />

in smoothly with the optical impression of<br />

the park. “In winter we have up to two metres<br />

of snow, which means a snow load of<br />

390 kilos per square metre”, explained<br />

<strong>Park</strong> Manager Aigner. The the interior finish<br />

were developed by an artist: wooden<br />

carvings of the local animal world will replace<br />

temporary decoration from building<br />

timber. The animal world can also be seen<br />

in the train design, as the front car is decorated as<br />

the head of an ibex including impressive antlers.<br />

The seats are divided, and each one has its own<br />

lap bar. In combination with the additions on the bar<br />

pipe that prevent passengers being able to stretch<br />

their legs out of the car, the attraction has been released<br />

for children with a height of one metre as<br />

well. Those under six years of age must be accompanied<br />

by an adult in the same car.<br />

The ride begins with the train being pulled out of<br />

the station backwards and onto the lift. In the case<br />

of “Gipfelstrümer” the height is nine metres, and<br />

due to the sloping site is not more than 1.5 metres<br />

above the ground. Finally the train comes to a<br />

standstill in an almost horizontal position, whilst the<br />

lift chain catch goes into the predetermined position.<br />

In order to increase the passenger tension, the<br />

vehicle holds this position for a short time. And then<br />

it’s downhill, with the train travelling through the station<br />

at nearly 50 kilometres per hour. This is followed<br />

directly by a three quarter right curve, after which<br />

the train ascends and travels over and away from<br />

the station exit. This hill offers a directional change<br />

that however is travelled through a little bit too slowly,<br />

but naturally the same intensity can’t be expected<br />

as on a large coaster. The moderate speed is<br />

however comfortable owing to the following backward<br />

section. In the meantime, the course leading<br />

to the left travels close to the ground again, and an<br />

S-formed swerve ends with the second lift. Amazingly<br />

the train is seized by the friction drive wheels<br />

jerk-free here, bringing the vehicle once again into<br />

an almost horizontal position that is the same height<br />

as the section on the other end of the track. These<br />

two end sections of the lift were planned for effect<br />

and also to eventually install housing. However, the<br />

view from the first lift onto the mountain setting is so<br />

impressive that this would mar the experience. The<br />

reverse section of the ride now begins, with the train<br />

being braked at the end of the station, coming to a<br />

at the peak of the reversing<br />

section<br />

stop a little out of the area. After a short shunting<br />

and approximately 45 seconds ride time, the enjoyment<br />

is over.<br />

Just as the “Schlange von Midgard” at Hansa-<strong>Park</strong>,<br />

the “Gipfelstürmer” is also convincing with its unbelievable<br />

smooth running. The train glides over the<br />

course with a suppleness that is often not experienced<br />

even on kiddie coasters. “We have a wolf in<br />

sheep’s clothing here” said Ludwig Aigner not without<br />

good reason. Up to four times the force of gravity<br />

provides enough load in the valleys, and the two<br />

turns remind one not only optically of coasters in the<br />

larger calibre. And not to forget the fact that reverse<br />

riding wasn’t implemented on rides with these dimensions<br />

until last year. The “Gipfelstürmer” is very<br />

popular with the smaller park visitors, and adults<br />

also have their fun. The park and manufacturer have<br />

done everything well, and with an investment<br />

amount of a little over one million Euro, there may<br />

well be more “Gipfelstürmer” in the future. ■<br />

At long last! Holiday<br />

<strong>Park</strong> will be a theme park.<br />

But can the mega-coaster<br />

“Expedition GeForce” live<br />

in harmony with kiddie<br />

comic figures?<br />

Holiday <strong>Park</strong> celebrates its 40 th<br />

birthday this year, and at the<br />

same time, big television stars<br />

are moving into the park such as<br />

Maya the Bee, Wickie, Tabaluga<br />

and the Anubis House. All the<br />

more reason for us to present a<br />

revue of the park over the past 40<br />

years, and to take an exciting<br />

look into the future.<br />

No question about it: Maya<br />

the Bee and her friends are the<br />

darlings of the public<br />

In November last year, Holiday <strong>Park</strong> was the first<br />

German park to become a member of the Belgian<br />

theme park group Plopsa from media company<br />

Studio 100, which was founded in 1996 as an<br />

internationally operating company. In Germany, the<br />

big television stars Maya the Bee, Wickie, Tabaluga<br />

and the series “Das Haus Anubis” belong to the<br />

Studio-100-Family, and with that Holiday <strong>Park</strong> has<br />

apparently received just what was missing over the<br />

years: the correct themes. And in actual fact the<br />

new operator is using the large parks such as<br />

Disney as a model, but the way there will still have<br />

to take some time.<br />

The first outside influences can already be seen in<br />

the first season after the takeover. The old mascot<br />

Holly has been joined by Maya the Bee and Flip,<br />

Tabaluga and Wickie. They already all greet visitors<br />

at the entrance, and naturally also in the complete<br />

park area.<br />

The first successful rebuilding step can already be<br />

seen on the large area before the “Freefall Tower”,<br />

the “Tanzenden Fontänen” that has upgraded the<br />

rather dismal “Platz der Nationen”, and offers water<br />

fun for the smaller and older kids. At long last the<br />

waiting area for the Freefall Tower has been newly<br />

designed, and prettified with scenes from Haus<br />

Anubis: there are a number of pictures and video<br />

sequences from Haus Anubis inside, and on the<br />

roof of the building there is also a large video<br />

screen, showing excerpts from the television series<br />

that can be seen from afar.<br />

“Holly’s Fahrschule” is located before the Wild<br />

Mouse “Holly’s Wilde Autofahrt”, which only opened<br />

last year, and fitting to the theme, small visitors can<br />

have their first experience in driving a car on the<br />

attraction. A special highlight here is the petrol station.<br />

With smiles from ear to ear, almost every child<br />

stops to hold the nozzle to fill up the car, and there<br />

are no tears regarding the current high petrol prices<br />

either. The cars are naturally battery operated and<br />

are recharged daily by personnel.<br />

A number of rides came into being right on time for<br />

the start of the main season, in particular for children.<br />

A number of attractions have disappeared,<br />

among others the aged track ride “Tour des Fleurs”<br />

that has been replaced by the track ride arena “Flip<br />

der Grashüpfer” from Metallbau Emmeln. The curvy<br />

course travels through a colourful flower world, and<br />

78


past figures from the well known series. The chaises<br />

in the form of grasshoppers move up and down<br />

smoothly during the comfortable 172 metre long<br />

course.<br />

The kiddie Freefall Tower “Majas Blumenturm”, a 12<br />

metre high tower from Zierer, which was not completely<br />

themed as a huge sunflower with seats in<br />

the form of petals at the beginning of the season,<br />

stands directly nearby.<br />

Another family attraction is located in the new Maya<br />

the Bee area: “Herr Frosch” from Zamperla is a<br />

small roundabout with bright green frog figures<br />

travelling up and down in a circle. Some may, without<br />

a doubt, already know “Herr Frosch” from other<br />

Plopsa-<strong>Park</strong>s in Belgium or the Netherlands.<br />

Other already existing ride constructions fit in<br />

amazingly well with their design into this new bee<br />

area – did perhaps the earlier <strong>Park</strong> Manager Wolfgang<br />

Schneider foresee years ago that Maya would<br />

move into his park? Other than that, the new park<br />

management has discovered the target group of<br />

children up to 3 years of age, a group that has been<br />

somewhat neglected by Holiday <strong>Park</strong> for many<br />

years.<br />

The “Anno Tobak”, the canal water ride that came<br />

into being in 1974, is now the “Tabalugas Abenteuer”.<br />

Although the 260 metres long boat ride continues<br />

to travel through the spruce forest since July,<br />

which is now called “Tabalugas Grünland”, there<br />

are also promised themed highlights for the whole<br />

family with many special effects and ten deceptively<br />

authentic looking animatronics figures. Passengers<br />

will undertake an adventurous journey with the<br />

small dragon and his friends in order to save visitors<br />

to Arktos from the evil ruler of “Eisland”, in<br />

imaginatively designed boats with onboard-audio.<br />

The “Dancing Fountains”<br />

in front of the Freefall Tower<br />

will become the centre point of<br />

the park after the erection of<br />

the new entrance arbor<br />

The merchandising has<br />

been (almost) completely changed<br />

– here and there are still a<br />

few earlier Holiday <strong>Park</strong> souvenirs<br />

available<br />

79


“Flip” from Metallbau Emmeln<br />

opened punctually to the<br />

main season; and since then<br />

it’s all about travelling through<br />

fields of flowers on the back of<br />

a grasshopper – perfect theming<br />

can be so simple when<br />

one knows how<br />

“Herr Frosch” from Zamperla<br />

asking for a dance<br />

This update of the ride comes at a cost of 750,000<br />

Euro, and is the result of close agreement with<br />

musician Peter Maffay, in co-production with<br />

Heimotion (the successor firm of Heimo), and Goldbogen<br />

Entertainments.<br />

The History of the <strong>Park</strong><br />

Even though themed attractions are missing at Holiday<br />

<strong>Park</strong> in many corners, the park has played a<br />

leading role over the past 40 years, by the adaption<br />

of ground breaking innovations that were often<br />

installed only later at other parks – an advantage of<br />

owner-operation that doesn’t require long term<br />

decision-making. Holiday <strong>Park</strong> remained in private<br />

hands for 40 seasons, and that’s reflected throughout<br />

the whole park. Erika Schneider, founder of<br />

the park and being a show-woman,<br />

hoofed it initially through the country<br />

with a midget group, and purchased<br />

the “Pfälzer Märchenpark” in Hassloch<br />

in 1970. A stationary midget<br />

village came into being there, together<br />

with a midget circus. As extension,<br />

a dolphin show and a zoo were<br />

added, and already in the first year<br />

70,000 visitors could be counted. The<br />

first vaudeville theatre opened in<br />

1972 with 600 seats, and the success<br />

of the dolphin show was celebrated<br />

with a new dolphinarium with 1,800<br />

seats.<br />

Holiday <strong>Park</strong> considered a varied<br />

show programme to be of importance<br />

quite early, and in the following years<br />

also busily set about establishing a<br />

choice in gastronomy, offering cafés<br />

and restaurants. In 1978 the first<br />

180°-cinema in Europe was opened, and in 1979<br />

the still currently presented “Superwirbel” went into<br />

operation – a Corkscrew attraction from Vekoma,<br />

which in the first years after opening retained its<br />

charm and was considered a novelty. There were<br />

constant extensions and rebuilding in the whole<br />

park, new restaurants, and with the “Pfälzer Dorf”,<br />

the only theme park area in the park.<br />

The larger park attractions came after son Wolfgang<br />

Schneider took over: the “Donnerfluss” went<br />

into operation in 1984, and was the first Whitewater<br />

Rafting construction in Germany with a rotating<br />

platform as entrance. In the following years attractions<br />

such as the “Burg Falkenstein“ were added –<br />

a ride through medieval scenes in a lovely setting,<br />

and the “Teufelsfässer”, a water attraction with, at<br />

that time, the longest drop in Europe. The records<br />

continued: the “Freefall Tower” from Intamin was the<br />

first in 1997 in Germany, and a huge sensation. 30<br />

years Holiday <strong>Park</strong> was celebrated in 2001 with one<br />

of the largest coasters in Germany, and even today<br />

“Expedition GeForce” with its 82° inclines has no<br />

equal in Germany. The park is particularly proud of<br />

the long history of its waterskiing stunt show that entertains<br />

with a new show programme almost every<br />

year, and will be able to celebrate its 30 year existence<br />

in the 2012 season. A lovely extension to the<br />

waterskiing-lake is the “Lighthouse Tower”, an 80<br />

metre high “Starflyer” from Funtime, which opened<br />

in celebration of the park’s 35 th year anniversary in<br />

2006.<br />

Holiday <strong>Park</strong> was able to present innovative novelties<br />

and played a leading role as example for other<br />

German parks for some time. However during the<br />

past years the park could no longer hold this position,<br />

a fact which was reflected in the visitor numbers.<br />

Another reason could also be the lack of a<br />

successor within the Schneider family, resulting in<br />

80


a steady sinking of willingness to invest. Insofar, it<br />

remains to be hoped that the entry of the new characters,<br />

the transformation into a real theme park,<br />

and a consistent structure can tie the park to its past<br />

success, and that visitors very soon can submerge<br />

themselves for a whole day in the fascinating world<br />

of Maya the Bee, Tabaluga and Wickie.<br />

At any rate the first half of the new season under<br />

new management broke all records: an unbelievable<br />

60% visitor increase to the same period in the<br />

previous year! Steve van den Kerkhof, CEO of the<br />

Plopsa-Group:”We were sure that the Studio100<br />

characters and the new concept would bring a<br />

large response, but we hadn’t counted on such an<br />

increase in visitor numbers.”<br />

As a result this year’s investment amount is to be<br />

two million Euro, followed by a further nine million<br />

Euro next year. The two million will be used to realize<br />

or more specifically extend the “Biene Maja” theme<br />

area (between the current entrance and the “Anubis”<br />

Freefall Tower”). And at long last seven million<br />

will be used for a real entrance arbour between the<br />

parking area and the Freefall Tower. An estimated<br />

amount of 25 million Euro will be used for the redesign<br />

and extension of Holiday <strong>Park</strong> into a theme<br />

park over the next five years. An indoor park independent<br />

of weather conditions is also a possibility.<br />

The target is however to change the regionally orientated<br />

park into a nationwide family attraction with<br />

the help of the well known TV-characters. Patrick<br />

Elmendorff from Studio100 Media (earlier EM.TV)<br />

explained that their own characters have a 3 generation<br />

potential, which is something that other<br />

comic figures lack, for example Spongebob.<br />

“Majas Blumenturm” from<br />

Zierer which unfortunately isn’t<br />

designed as a flower tower at all<br />

The redesigned water ride<br />

will be the only attraction with a<br />

Tabaluga theme for the time<br />

being – not well known enough<br />

according to <strong>Park</strong> Management<br />

Anubis”<br />

The decades old “makeshift”<br />

next year<br />

Plopsa’s Strategy in Germany<br />

The defined goal of the Plopsa-Group is to establish<br />

four locations in Germany by 2020, for which a total<br />

amount of 100 million Euro has been set aside, the<br />

half of which is for the new flagship Holiday <strong>Park</strong><br />

(incl. purchase). The three other locations have not<br />

been decided but should be across the country, so<br />

that national advertising pays off. For cost reasons<br />

there is a look out for already existing theme parks<br />

or indoor parks explained Steve van den Kerkhof at<br />

the press conference at the end of June. The erection<br />

of a new park together with a strong partner is<br />

not out of the question however.<br />

One could suppose that one of these strong partners<br />

could well be the German television station<br />

ZDF. At the very least, since the takeover of the<br />

EM.TV licences for Maya, Wickie, Tabaluga and<br />

other characters, there has been a stable business<br />

relationship between ZDF and Plopsa/Studio100.<br />

Besides that, the cooperation with the German<br />

television station has resulted in the new version of<br />

the Maya the Bee comic series (produced in Paris<br />

and London), which will be aired from 2013 – and<br />

with that actually being one year too late for the best<br />

possible marketing – with Maya flying around looking<br />

somewhat rounder and in rather glarier colours<br />

in 3D optic. The bizarre aspect of the whole thing<br />

is that of all people, the earlier <strong>Park</strong> Manager of<br />

Holiday <strong>Park</strong> Wolfgang Schneider – together with<br />

Fritz Wurms (Hollywood- and Safaripark Stukenbrock),<br />

and the recently deceased Gottlieb Löffelhardt<br />

(Phantasialand) – successfully sued against<br />

the planned ZDF-Mediapark, and with that prevented<br />

the construction of a theme park realized with<br />

public monies.<br />

MAXX WATERPARK<br />

Text:<br />

Frank Lanfer<br />

Photos: Polin<br />

The Turkish water slide manufacturer Polin only<br />

introduced this new slide idea at the previous<br />

IAAPA 2010 event, and only six months later, in<br />

June 2011, the first “King Cobra” went into<br />

operation.<br />

Two parallel sliding lanes start<br />

from a mutual platform, where<br />

park guests climb into twoseat<br />

tubes. After sliding<br />

through a type of partially<br />

covered figure-8-element, the pipes open again,<br />

followed by an approximately eight metre drop at<br />

up to 50 km/h. However at the other end of this<br />

Boomerang-element, the name giver cobra<br />

snake, tries to devour its passengers. The tube<br />

slide dives into the throat for a short time and<br />

disappears behind fog, sprays of water, and<br />

sound effects before shooting towards the ground<br />

again by the aid of gravity, and so avoiding the<br />

poisonous snake. In addition to these special<br />

effects, the complete colouring of the slide is<br />

particularly noticeable, making it something very<br />

special among water slides optically.<br />

84


The location of the first “King Cobra” is the 40<br />

hectare sized MAXX-Hotel-resort in Belek on the<br />

Mediterranean coast, around 45 kilometres from<br />

Antalya. The establishment’s own water park is<br />

10,000 m 2 in size and contains 10 different slides<br />

that all stem from the Polin firm, which was<br />

founded in 1976. A second “King Cobra” was<br />

opened in the Russian Djubga water park on the<br />

11 th of June, and will be followed by five other constructions<br />

of the same type for 2012.<br />


SPRING VALLEY BEACH<br />

The water slide “360Rush” from<br />

SplashTacular that was introduced<br />

at the IAAPA exhibition in<br />

2009 has been realized for the<br />

first time. And the location of the<br />

world novelty is the small water<br />

park Spring Valley Beach in<br />

Bluntsville in the US State of<br />

Alabama.<br />

Basically the “360Rush” is a Bowl-slide that however<br />

has a lot higher start point, and with that<br />

a considerably higher sliding speed. And above<br />

all – and this is actually a world première – it is<br />

used by two persons at the same time. This is<br />

made possible – the third improvement of a Bowl-<br />

Slide – by the exact simultaneous start by way of<br />

the very popular trapdoor mechanics in the meantime.<br />

So, two dauntless sliders take their place<br />

in the two individual cabins at a 17.5 metre<br />

height. Then the countdown starts and the floor<br />

claps away from under their feet at exactly the<br />

same moment. They shoot at a nearly vertical<br />

angle through the 81 centimetre wide pipes that<br />

smoothly change into the horizontal, releasing the<br />

passengers at nearly 60 km/h into the bowl. The<br />

two slide ends deliver an exciting race into the<br />

13.7 metre diameter container. However as both<br />

inlets are on opposite sides there is at no point the<br />

possibility of coming too close to one another. The<br />

run area is located in the centre of the element<br />

that is exited over small stairs and a small bridge.<br />

Almost all park guests can take part. They must<br />

only have a minimum height of 1.22 metres and<br />

can only have a maximum weight of 140 kg. The<br />

manufacturer of this unusual slide construction is<br />

SplashTacular, which was founded in 1994, and<br />

is located in Kansas.<br />

AQUATICA SAN ANTONIO<br />

Text:<br />

Frank Lanfer<br />

After the SeaWorld <strong>Park</strong> in Orlando had introduced<br />

a new water park in 2008 (see KPR<br />

5/2008), the Texan SeaWorld is also to be extended<br />

with a bordering water park. As is the<br />

case in Orlando, this area will also be called<br />

Aquatica, but different to Florida, it will not be<br />

newly erected.<br />

The new Aquatica is a separated part of SeaWorld<br />

San Antonio, and replaces the “Lost Lagoon” area<br />

that has been in existence since 1993, the use of<br />

which was included in the admittance price. That<br />

will change after the new opening planned for the<br />

end of May 2012. “For that though, visitors will experience<br />

a complete new theming in an extended<br />

seven hectare water park”, explained Dan Decker,<br />

the President of SeaWorld San Antonio.<br />

The “Wave Wash Pool” with a 7,500 m 2 sized beach<br />

area and lawn for sunbathing, the Lazy River “Castaway<br />

Crusin’”, the three-level water playground<br />

“Splash Attack”, and a number of water slides were<br />

already in existence. Now however the number of<br />

attractions will increase to 38, among them the main<br />

attraction “Dolphin Plunge”, which has a 76 m long<br />

see-through pipe that also leads through a water<br />

basin where dolphins romp about. This construction<br />

is already known from Aquatica Orlando, which<br />

is extremely popular. The new water slides have<br />

been supplied by the two Canadian firms ProSlide<br />

and WhitewaterWest.<br />

DISCOVERY COVE<br />

Whilst a section of the successful<br />

and exclusive theme park<br />

has been closed due to the urgent<br />

need of restoration after<br />

which it will be equipped with an<br />

unknown new attraction, the<br />

6,000 m 2 sized extension “Grand<br />

Reef” with a depth of up to 3.6<br />

metres and 6.6 million litres of<br />

water and a large sandy beach<br />

and a couple of hundred sun<br />

beds, was opened in June 2011<br />

as compensation.<br />

SeaWorld’s Zoological<br />

Director Reid Miller has the responsibly<br />

for 10,000 animals<br />

(here shortly before the opening<br />

of the new “Grand Reef”<br />

Just as earlier in the old “Tropical<br />

Reef”, visitors can snorkel to their<br />

heart’s content and not only observe<br />

1,000 colourful fish, stingrays, and eels as well<br />

as artificially grown coral reefs, but also have<br />

surprising eye-to-eye meetings with sharks and<br />

other dangerous predatory fish (behind glass<br />

panes).<br />

The approximately 20-minute “Sea Venture”<br />

adventure is also being offered as a further<br />

novelty and additional up charge attraction – a<br />

type of guided underwater stroll.<br />

Participants are equipped with a 75<br />

pound diving helmet that only<br />

weighs 15 pounds under water and<br />

causes a comfortable feeling of<br />

weightlessness.<br />

In actual fact guests are only a few<br />

feet under the water during this dive,<br />

but it feels and looks as though it’s<br />

20 metres.<br />

By the way, the important salt water<br />

for the sea dwellers is kept clean<br />

and germ-free by a new ozone filter<br />

system from Siemens.<br />

Around 800 personnel look after the maximum<br />

number of 1,000 daily visitors, and the around<br />

10,000 sea creatures; 95 zoo keepers and trainers<br />

are responsible for the well being of the 45<br />

dolphins – all a personal and cost intensive business<br />

that justifies the all-inclusive admittance<br />

price from 199 $ (including 14-day entrance to<br />

another SeaWorld <strong>Park</strong>).<br />

This would be a great further development for<br />

other aircraft museums around the world: the<br />

adaption of a water park!<br />

On the 6 th of June the normal Evergreen Aviation<br />

and Space Museum in McMinnville (US-State of<br />

Oregon) put the indoor water park Wings & Waves<br />

containing 10 slides from WhitewaterWest, into operation.<br />

A decommissioned Boeing 747-100 has<br />

been mounted on the roof of the up to 19 metre high<br />

roof of the building, with the four rear emergency<br />

exits being used for slide departure: the largest is<br />

170 metres long and the fastest 110 metres long.<br />

Inside the 6,000 m 2 building there is amongst others,<br />

an “Aquaplay” water playground over which a<br />

somewhat minimized fire fighting helicopter empties<br />

water over the heads of the parks guests every<br />

few minutes from a container... And peaple say that<br />

a museum is dry! The operator of both the museum<br />

and the water park is the freight airline company<br />

Evergreen International Airlines.<br />

ADVENTURE WORLD WARSAW<br />

The announcement resulted in<br />

unbelievable and absolute astonishment:<br />

the first modern theme<br />

park in Eastern Europe is to<br />

be erected in Poland. Building<br />

should begin already next year,<br />

and the opening of the complete<br />

resort including hotel and entertainment<br />

facilities is already<br />

planned for 2014. Another project<br />

that will never be realized?<br />

By no means!<br />

Text:<br />

Frank Lanfer<br />

Peter Jan Mulder (left) and<br />

the town Mayor Grzegorz<br />

Benedykcinski at the press<br />

conference in Warsaw<br />

When one looks closely, the location is ideal.<br />

After the fall of the Iron Curtain, it was particularly<br />

Polish residents who headed for the nearest<br />

entertainment world. As a result for example,<br />

the North German Heide-<strong>Park</strong> experienced its<br />

strongest visitor years in its existence in the 1990s,<br />

due to the countless Polish guests. And it’s still<br />

Germany’s neighbour that makes up for the larger<br />

part of the guests at the indoor water park Tropical<br />

Islands near Berlin that opened in 2004. Both German<br />

attractions are still popular – for example two<br />

busses travel from Warsaw daily to Tropical<br />

Islands – after all there is no similar facility in Poland.<br />

Why not then establish a theme and water<br />

park within the country, thought the resourceful<br />

businessman Peter Jan Mulder.<br />

In actual fact Mulder’s announcement is a declaration<br />

of war on the abovementioned<br />

establishment:<br />

“Naturally we hope to bring<br />

back many visitors”. And for<br />

this reason the Adventure<br />

World Warsaw has to be a<br />

fully adequate theme resort<br />

with a mature park and attractive<br />

indoor water park<br />

according to western standards<br />

right from the beginning.<br />

And there’s more: the<br />

aim is to be rated with<br />

Disneyland, Efteling and<br />

Europa-<strong>Park</strong>, or perhaps be<br />

even a little better.<br />

In order to achieve this, the native Netherlander<br />

who founded the Las Palm LLC has gathered a<br />

type of “Dutch connection” around himself.<br />

Hans van Driem from International Destination<br />

Strategies (earlier Creative Manager at Walibi park<br />

group) is responsible for consulting. The Vekoma<br />

Rides Manufacturing is the main rides and attractions<br />

supplier and is also involved in the engineering<br />

support. Jora Vision is working on the master<br />

planning and theming for the park and the main<br />

hotel. AGS Architects are responsible for the<br />

drafts for the Aquadome, Hotel, and building<br />

planning. Tebodin B.V. (more precisely the subsidiary<br />

of Tebodin Poland) is responsible for<br />

project management, and Imtech NV (Imtech<br />

Polska) is the construction company, which<br />

specialised in large projects.<br />

After having to distance themselves<br />

from a 40 hectare sized ground area<br />

on the outskirts of Warsaw due to<br />

problems with residents, a property<br />

was found in autumn 2010 in the<br />

small town of Grodzisk Mazowiecki,<br />

located approximately 30 kilometres<br />

from the capital. The future possibility<br />

to erect something other than<br />

a theme park and entertainment<br />

district on the 240 hectare area that<br />

is ideally located directly on the<br />

freeway from Warsaw to Berlin that<br />

will be completed in 2012, such as<br />

a financially lucrative shopping mall<br />

or factory outlet centre is out of the<br />

question. According to the mayor of<br />

the town, Grzegorz Benedykcinski,<br />

the area concerned has been<br />

zoned as a recreation area. In actual<br />

fact there were already a number of attempts to<br />

establish a theme park in Warsaw. For example<br />

Michael Jackson wanted to erect a subsidiary of<br />

his Neverland-Ranch there, and Denmark's Tivoli<br />

proclaimed the intention a number of years ago of<br />

building an almost identical inner city park as in<br />

Copenhagen in Poland’s capital city. This time<br />

however, everything is different, assured the likeable<br />

initiator P. J. Mulder: the point of no return has<br />

been overstepped because an 80-person team is<br />

no longer working on the design, but already on<br />

the realization.<br />

The first building phase is estimated to cost 400<br />

million Euro, and is to already commence in the<br />

spring of 2012. It will contain the theme park, water<br />

park, and hotel and entertainment village with a<br />

cinema complex, restaurants, pubs, and discos.<br />

The second phase is planned to be completed by<br />

2020, and will comprise of a second theme park,<br />

a conference centre with additional hotel and a<br />

luxurious wellness centre for an additional 350 million<br />

Euro. A 90 metre diameter and up 30 metre<br />

high dome is planned to be erected for the indoor<br />

water park “The Palm” containing ten water slides<br />

and themed in a Caribbean style, and will be an<br />

architectural master feat.<br />

The planned entrance to the theme park reminds<br />

one strongly of the area at Disneyland Paris, because<br />

visitors here will also have to use the hotel<br />

underpass to reach the park. The park theme will<br />

lean strongly towards the myths and legends of<br />

the world, and will be divided into five theme areas,<br />

similar to the situation at the Universal Islands<br />

Of Adventure in Florida: the Mainstreet “Adventure<br />

Harbour” will entice visitors with merchandising<br />

and restaurants, the “Creature Lagoon” will be in<br />

cartoon-style, the medieval “Castle Island” will be<br />

associated with the current Harry-Potter-hype, the<br />

“Legendary Island” will unite the temple constructions<br />

of the Maya and the Inca, and the<br />

“Polski Plaza”, opened all year round with principally<br />

indoor attractions, is a homage to historic<br />

Warsaw. A total of 25 attractions and shows will<br />

spread over the park grounds.


The fact that the Dutch manufacturer Vekoma as<br />

main partner will naturally supply most of the ride<br />

constructions is logical, among them are the<br />

Junior Coaster “Pegasus Taxi”, the mine attraction<br />

“Merlin’s Rainbow Hunt”, the Junior-Boomerang<br />

“Ra’s Challenge”, the Madhouse “Twardoski’s<br />

Mansion of Magic”, and a “Sky Shuttle” viewing<br />

tower. Only a “Twist ’n’ Splash” from Mack, a Rapid<br />

Ride from Hafema, a number of kiddie and smaller<br />

round rides from Zamperla, and various water<br />

slides from ProSlide have been additionally purchased<br />

to attain a balanced spectrum of attractions.<br />

Peter Jan Mulder is very sure about his project of<br />

a lifetime: “The fact that there is a huge demand<br />

is proved by the many Dino-<strong>Park</strong>s in Poland that<br />

have an unbelievably large clientele, although<br />

there’s not much to see except 20 or 30 stiff plastic<br />

dinosaurs.” Although there are a number of Lunaparks,<br />

they are only comparable to third-class fairgrounds.<br />

Naturally the local average wage has to<br />

be kept in mind. Mulder, who is married to a Polish<br />

woman, explains: “The Poles don’t save as the<br />

Dutch do, but spend everything.” This is the reason<br />

that the many shopping malls in the country<br />

are always full, and he considers a future admittance<br />

price of 24 Euro as reasonable. This project<br />

is also using the possibility to profit from the EUgrants<br />

of nearly 70%. In the official press announcement<br />

however there was something quite<br />

vague mentioned to the tune of an “international<br />

consortium of private and institutional investors<br />

having a registered seat in Luxembourg.”<br />

The projected total visitor number of two million<br />

visitors annually for the theme and water park,<br />

together with the entertainment complex appears<br />

realistic, however the question remains as to<br />

whether this number justifies such an expensive<br />

theme resort. In comparison: Efteling und Europa-<br />

<strong>Park</strong> have over four million visitors – and that without<br />

a cost intensive indoor water park. Wouldn’t it<br />

be more sensible to erect a park for “just” 50 million<br />

Euro at the start such as Belantis in East Germany<br />

that had to start with nil initially? However it’s<br />

all about the will of the initiator team to be Tropical<br />

Islands, Europa-<strong>Park</strong> und City Walk all at the same<br />

time – perhaps too much of a good thing all at<br />

once.<br />

However this plan does have a great chance of<br />

realization, as one fact speaks volumes: it will be<br />

the first modern theme park in Eastern Europe that<br />

the 38 million consumer friendly population of<br />

Poland wants desperately. Initiator Peter Jan Mulder:<br />

“This project will change Poland, and the<br />

country will never be the same as before.” Looking<br />

at it from a recreational angle, the time is right.<br />

It remains to be hoped that the opening will take<br />

place in three years.<br />

Rubicon Group Holding wants to erect a huge<br />

holiday resort in the Jordanian vacation city of<br />

Aqaba on the Red Sea.<br />

The centre point is to be a new type of theme park<br />

with a Star-Trek-theme that will be designed by the<br />

right holder Paramount Recreation (licensed by<br />

CBS Consumer Products). Interactive attractions<br />

and ride constructions will be put to use in particular<br />

in order to – as the saying goes – bring a “theme<br />

park of the 23 rd century” into being. In addition to<br />

the Star-Trek theme, other entertainment offers are<br />

to be realized on the 74 hectare area, with the<br />

themes being orientated on Babylonian, British,<br />

and Roman influences that actually existed in<br />

Jordan. The architecture offices Callison will be<br />

responsible for the planning of the 714 million Euro<br />

priced resort. The resort offer on entertainment will<br />

be rounded off by a cinema complex, an evening<br />

entertainment complex, and hotels and shopping,<br />

explained Rubicon’s Manager Randa S. Ayoubi.<br />

The opening is planned for 2014.<br />

Krause Bohne GmbH<br />

An investment group intends to erect a 381<br />

million Euro residential area and theme park on<br />

the German-Polish border near the city of<br />

Görlitz.<br />

The idea stems from the Aachen architectural office<br />

of Krause Bohne, who has designed hotels for 25<br />

years. Standing behind the project are in addition<br />

to Tom Krause, the project development company<br />

from Ulrich Halder, the Polish project developer<br />

Ryszard Wolczyk, and the owner of the Joachimstein<br />

Castle. The Resort Berzdorfer See will be<br />

subdivided into four locations: the Hargenwerd<br />

Peninsula will become an island with pier, market<br />

place, promenade, and apartments, and two golf<br />

courses will come into being on the “Blauen<br />

Lagune”. The Joachimstein Castle on the Polish<br />

border will be turned into a luxury hotel. And on the<br />

so-called “Südstrand”, recreational facilities and a<br />

cross-border thermal complex are to be erected.<br />

Tom Krause: “We are not working on the border, but<br />

over the border.The many small bridges over the<br />

border river will make our project the first resort that<br />

oversteps an international boundary in Europe.” For<br />

the realization there will not be any public grants<br />

used by the way. The money is to come from the<br />

international US-fonds of a private-equity-group<br />

that in return requires political support and infrastructural<br />

measures. The Berzdorf Lake has an area<br />

of 960 hectares and came into being by the flooding<br />

of an opencast mining hole.<br />

BAVARIA PARK<br />

When a good 15 years ago the<br />

boss at the time of Disney, Michael<br />

Eisner, sat together with his<br />

people because a second park in<br />

Disneyland Anaheim was a<br />

decided fact and had to be drawn<br />

through even if only for economical<br />

reason, and a theme for the<br />

park had to be found. Eisner<br />

decided that it should be “California”.<br />

Text:<br />

H. Jürgen Kagelmann<br />

Photos: Bavaria <strong>Park</strong><br />

Doubts that one didn’t need to show the advantages<br />

and objects of interest were swept from<br />

the table by Eisner and it all came as it had to come:<br />

Disney's California Adventure was realized – however<br />

with few impressive attractions, due to the reserved<br />

investment willingness. Not taken to by the<br />

public as hoped initially, Disney is still working on<br />

pepping up the park so that it somehow pays. Disney<br />

has enough funds to continue on with a nonfunctioning<br />

park, but it’s doubtful that this is the<br />

case in the following situation.<br />

An “initiative team” plans to open the Bavaria <strong>Park</strong><br />

(or Bavaria World) in Bavaria, 25 autobahn kilometres<br />

from Munich. The teams includes architect and<br />

earlier manager of the Building Directorate of the<br />

city of Munich Horst Haffner, architect and initiator<br />

Thomas Neff, the lawyer and earlier manager of the<br />

Augustiner Brewery Dr. Gerhard Ohneis, the PR-<br />

Agency owner Thomas Reinecke, and two unknown<br />

traders. The location is 18 hectares of uncultivated<br />

land, the transport connection is solvable,<br />

and the approval of the communal politicians<br />

seems to be on hand. The population is as always<br />

of a divided opinion, and the financing of the 320<br />

million Euro project is vague at this early stage.<br />

There should be a concept that would pass a feasibility<br />

check, and be interesting enough that investors<br />

step in. The basic conditions are not bad<br />

as the metropolis of Munich has enough well earning<br />

inhabitants that would come into question as<br />

potential visitors (6 million). The city has up until<br />

now no theme park nearby (Skyline <strong>Park</strong> is 80 kilometres<br />

and Legoland and Bayern-<strong>Park</strong> are 130<br />

kilometres away by car). However people these<br />

days are very spoilt as far as what’s on offer at a<br />

theme park. If one wants to have many visitors and<br />

in particular multiple return guests, then something<br />

really unusual has to be offered. Is that the case<br />

here?<br />

The new Bavaria <strong>Park</strong> will not be a typical admittance<br />

park initially, but only a roofed over, sound<br />

insulated area (90,000 m 2 ) with various offers that<br />

have to be paid for separately. This reminds one a<br />

little of the Prater-concept, but there could be a lot<br />

to discuss about its attractiveness. The Neufahrn<br />

park will be – according to the official press release<br />

– a “theme and culture world around the theme<br />

Bavaria”, a “journey through historic Bavaria from<br />

original customs to future high-tech. The culture<br />

area will offer music and theatre stages as well as<br />

the famous tavern gastronomy. The recreational<br />

area will offer nostalgia, games, and a kiddie area,<br />

as well as three interesting theme houses. There<br />

will also be two theme hotels and small retail shops<br />

selling only products with a certificate proclaiming<br />

‘Original from Bavaria’. “<br />

This causes critical questions: Why should the locals<br />

or tourists drive there when Munich has the<br />

original flair, and there are enough gastronomy, entertainment<br />

and local products there?<br />

And the experience factor? A coaster will definitely<br />

not be installed, assure the initiators. Maybe the<br />

cost factor plays a role in the decision, as well as<br />

the non aesthetic or other loud reasons. The coaster<br />

decision was probably a hasty decision, because<br />

what is going to draw the aimed-at two million<br />

(!) visitors, 50% of them tourists, to the trading<br />

estate Mintraching? What are the basic attractions<br />

to be? The envisioned attractions make one fear<br />

the worst as far as boredom is concerned: In the<br />

“…’Bavaria Lernwelt’, children experience and<br />

learn actively and in practice the real world in the<br />

areas of society, education, money, energy, mobility<br />

and media…”<br />

In the event that a small science museum is in<br />

planning one must be reminded of the fact that of<br />

the dozens of them in Germany, there’s probably<br />

only one that is profitable. And as far as the<br />

planned theme area “Bavaria Aktiv”, the initiators<br />

should inform themselves very quickly about the<br />

embarrassing fate of Munich’s “Olympic Spirit”.<br />

In truth however there is at least one ride planned,<br />

The sketches and models<br />

cannot be surpassed in coldness<br />

and missing empathy<br />

which is based on an idea from Bavaria’s favourite,<br />

King Ludwig 11: his “balloon cable car with peacock<br />

gondolas”, which was as it were a “Soaring<br />

King”. The joke of the idea of the favoured Bavarian<br />

King was a romantic flight from the<br />

Neuschwanstein Castle over the Alp Lake, and<br />

there’s not a castle or a lake available in Neufahrn.<br />

And whether or not 5,000 people come to see a<br />

colourfully decorated cable car every day from the<br />

year 2014 is an interesting question. And just as a<br />

sideline, the capacity of this balloon ride would be<br />

far too low for it to be taken seriously.<br />

Summary: Munich has needed a theme park for a<br />

long time, but a proper one! That what has been<br />

revealed about the “Bavaria <strong>Park</strong>” is contents-wise<br />

very lean, thematically unattractive, and additionally<br />

unbalanced, and economically and from a<br />

touristic angle, very questionable… or to say it with<br />

the words of a local politician, a probably oversized<br />

retail centre with Oktoberfest ambience.<br />

This Bavaria <strong>Park</strong> is definitely not a theme or<br />

amusement park. Whether or not it will ever be realized<br />

is very questionable and not only because<br />

of the presented concept. Shortly after the announcement,<br />

agitation on the part of the locals began<br />

once again – a not unusual situation in Germany.<br />

The theme park plan was used as a reason<br />

for a proper culture battle; some of the sceptics<br />

with their quick rejection of a park concept stepped<br />

way over the borders of offence. For example a<br />

catholic parish sued because the Christian culture<br />

and values have been sacrificed for the sake of<br />

commercialism, because the future park will also<br />

be open on Sundays and public holidays. It all<br />

promises to be very interesting.<br />

MAGIC WORLD RUSSIA<br />

Text:<br />

Frank Lanfer<br />

The Californian resident and businessman of<br />

Russian descent Gennady Moshkovich intends<br />

to erect the first modern theme park in the country<br />

50 kilometres from the gates of Moscow, and<br />

has engaged the well known Goddard Group for<br />

the design and development.<br />

Moshkovich’s US-firm Moschanko Investment<br />

Group (MIG 2000) wants to erect a multi-park<br />

resort together with an entertainment district and<br />

hotels on a total area of 250 hectares, with an<br />

investment volume of an unbelievable 2.5 billion<br />

US-Dollar.<br />

In addition to tow separate water parks and a<br />

15,000 person concert hall, the planned theme<br />

park will comprise of the following experience<br />

worlds:<br />

In “Hollywood Studios” visitors will be able to<br />

experience the world of film and become<br />

emotionally connected. The “Magic Family <strong>Park</strong>”<br />

will contain coasters and other ride constructions<br />

especially for children and families. The “Nanopolis<br />

Children’s <strong>Park</strong>” will be based on the failed<br />

USA Wannado-park project where children can<br />

slip into adult professions. The “<strong>Park</strong> Russia” is to<br />

bring Russian culture and achievements from<br />

science and astronautics closer to the visitor. The<br />

“Thrill Ride <strong>Park</strong>” will contain various coasters and<br />

other large attractions. The “Extreme Sports <strong>Park</strong>”<br />

will offer free access to a skating park and climbing<br />

garden. The “Winter Garden Magic Fountain<br />

<strong>Park</strong>” will offer light shows and parades every<br />

evening. The “St. Petersburg City Street” will be<br />

the all-evening entertainment quarter, similar to<br />

Universal’s “City Walk”.<br />

And a special mention must be made of the<br />

“World without Boundaries” leisure park where all<br />

attractions will be designed by physicians and<br />

therapists that are ideal for children with intellectual<br />

and physical disabilities – this would be an<br />

absolute novelty for the theme park branch, and<br />

if for no other reason, one wishes all the best for<br />

this plan.<br />

Unclear at this stage is whether these individual<br />

theme areas will be so large that special admittance<br />

fees will be demanded, or if it will be a<br />

classic all inclusive theme park. It’s quite common<br />

when a project with illusions of grandeur cannot<br />

be surpassed that one never hears of it again.<br />

Construction start for Magic World Russia will<br />

apparently begin in the summer of 2012. We are<br />

all waiting with bated breath!<br />

THE BLACKSTONE GROUP<br />

MAGAZINE<br />

Text:<br />

Frank Lanfer<br />

Blackstone is out! A few months ago we already<br />

reported that The Blackstone Group intended to<br />

sell its part of the theme park.<br />

Universal Orlando Resort. And now it’s official: NBC<br />

Universal LLC purchased the still missing 50% for<br />

1,025 billion Dollars, and with that is the sole owner<br />

of Universal Orlando Resort (Universal Studios<br />

Florida, Islands of Adventure und City Walk) – whilst<br />

NBC Universal LLC itself was taken over by Comcast<br />

Corporation a number of months ago (see KPR<br />

4/2011). At the end of 2000, Blackstone had purchased<br />

half of the company from the co-proprietor<br />

at the time, Rank Group Plc, for 275 million Dollars<br />

– with changing partners on the part of Universal.<br />

Outsiders may well have wondered that a privateequity-group<br />

held onto something for so long, in this<br />

case a recreational resort. The answer though may<br />

well be that after the terror attacks of the 11 th of September<br />

there were no reasonable prices to attain for<br />

a long time, and one just held on.<br />

It was first last year after the opening of the theme<br />

area “The Wizzarding World of Harry Potter”, and<br />

the newly attained new visitor record (plus over<br />

40% in comparison to previous years) that the sale<br />

value of the park increased so much. Despite a<br />

long-term capital lock-up, the result is acceptable:<br />

a profit of over 370% could be attained within<br />

eleven years, when at the same time a private-equity-group<br />

usually expects to reach such a figure<br />

within two to three years. Tom Williams, President of<br />

Universal <strong>Park</strong>s & Resorts is however very happy<br />

and promised the 16,000 affected employees stability<br />

and growth for the world’s largest and most<br />

profitable Universal-Resort in one sentence: “This<br />

is a very special and positive moment for us.” The<br />

purchase will be financed by various loans, among<br />

others from other subsidiary companies of the<br />

parent company Comcast. Universal Orlando is<br />

encumbered with approximately 1.5 billion $. This<br />

amount is also expected to be reduced over the<br />

next years.<br />

No Market Power in Orlando<br />

But the dream of being serious competition to the<br />

local mouse empire is over. Had Universal Orlando<br />

and Wet n’ Wild, together with Legoland opening in<br />

a few weeks (owned by Blackstone’s subsidiary<br />

Merlin Entertainments Group), SeaWorld Orlando,<br />

Busch Gardens Tampa, Discovery Cove und<br />

Aquatica (all owned by Blackstone), become a new<br />

economical and marketing power in central Florida,<br />

the Disney company would have had to have concerns.<br />

As it is however, everything remains just the<br />

same as before with the sale: There is Disney, and<br />

there are many small and larger parks.<br />

Merlin Entertainments Group<br />

In the meantime Blackstone has already reduced<br />

its European “engagement” with the Merlin Entertainments<br />

Group from 54 to 34 %. And it appears<br />

unfortunately to be only a question of time that the<br />

Busch-Gardens and SeaWorld-<strong>Park</strong>s that were purchased<br />

in October 2009 for 2.7 billion Dollars, will<br />

be “passed on” with a comfortable profit. ■<br />

POTTS PARK<br />

Lionel Heiwy<br />

Lagotronics, Lionel Heiwy<br />

The design sketches for the<br />

interactive cable control tower<br />

There are almost 80 Heegecable<br />

control towers worldwide,<br />

so it’s no wonder that<br />

they continue to be produced<br />

unchanged since 1995, and<br />

carry on being erected with<br />

new types of themes. And now<br />

– there is a further development<br />

of this bestseller: the<br />

interactive Upgrade-Kit from<br />

Smartrides/Lagotronics.<br />

The very first cable control tower manufactured<br />

by Heege, and simultaneously the first tower in<br />

coloured pencil design is located at the German<br />

Potts <strong>Park</strong> near Minden. And this tower has<br />

become the world’s first interactive cable control<br />

attraction this season.<br />

The idea came from Ralf Caspar, long-term Sales<br />

Manager with Heege, who contacted the Dutch<br />

manufacturer Lagotronics last year. The so-called<br />

“Lagotrics” system has already been proven on<br />

various ride constructions already, among them<br />

“Atlantis” at Europa-<strong>Park</strong>. Lagotronics was not<br />

reluctant to install its system on the tower, and so<br />

the utilization possibilities shown here came into<br />

being. The many attractions designed as a light<br />

102


house will also be able to be presented with a<br />

fitting themed concept soon.<br />

Potts <strong>Park</strong> had shown great interest even before<br />

the idea was completely thought out, and made<br />

an order right after the test run presentation. The<br />

idea to place four trees around the tower came<br />

from Henrik Pott personally. Each tree carries 16<br />

targets, each with a different value and recognisable<br />

in colourful LEDs. They are so placed that<br />

they can only be hit at a certain position,<br />

ascending and descending during the rotation.<br />

Essential is a well functioning team – one riding<br />

guest operates the laser pistol; the other has to<br />

attain the correct height – if one<br />

wants to leave the attraction a<br />

winner. A display in front of the tower<br />

shows the winner of the actual<br />

ride, the previous ride, and even<br />

the day’s and season’s best.<br />

The interactive extensive can be<br />

installed on existing towers without<br />

problems, as this is a completely<br />

independent system with the complete<br />

control located in an external<br />

control cabinet, and there is only<br />

little mechanical interfacing. ■<br />

TAUNUS WUNDERLAND<br />

Text:<br />

Frank Lanfer<br />

Photos: Taunus Wunderland<br />

Taunus Wunderland celebrates its 45 th anniversary<br />

this year, and naturally visitors have to receive<br />

new attractions in the jubilee season.<br />

The new type of tube slide “AirRace” came into<br />

being together with Willy Walser from abc rides,<br />

and fits to every type of ground area, and can be<br />

operated by the passenger. In this case the 80 m<br />

long slide meanders through an existing forest<br />

area. The speedy ride in the tubes begins with an<br />

imposing starting ramp, being used for the first<br />

time on this type of attraction. The two-seat tubes<br />

reach speeds of up to 30 km/h in the 4.5 m slide<br />

basin on a thin water film. Otto Barth is proud of<br />

this novelty and is sure that with the small investment<br />

he has a great attraction: “Mothers and<br />

fathers have just as much fun with their children as<br />

young adults do”. On average, the sliding period<br />

is just around 10 seconds.<br />

The attraction is very affordable in both manufacture<br />

and operation, as the sliding course can be<br />

integrated into the terrain and therefore does not<br />

need a support construction. Only construction<br />

components such as the control, slide mats, and<br />

tubes were delivered by abc rides.<br />

Another novelty at Taunus Wunderland is the used<br />

“Dino” monorail from the closed Panorama <strong>Park</strong>.<br />

This construction also had to be integrated into the<br />

area, for which abc did the planning and statics.<br />

Paul Maxheimer from Wiesbaden opened Taunus<br />

Wunderland in 1966 as a fairytale, zoo and adventure<br />

park. At the end of 1998, the showman<br />

family Barth took over the 40,000 m 2 sized area in<br />

the middle of the countryside, and continued to<br />

extend the park constantly. “It’s our business to<br />

deal with rides and shining children’s eyes” said<br />

Otto Barth, who had taken over the park together<br />

with his father Rudolf. And how does the showman<br />

see his engagement as park operator when he<br />

looks back? “Naturally we had a lot of hurdles to<br />

overcome in the beginning, when we changed<br />

Taunus Wunderland from a zoo and fairytale park”,<br />

said Otto Barth, “but we have realized a dream<br />

here, and would do it all again.”<br />

NEW BOOKS FOR CHILDREN<br />

Theo Michael Zwermann, <strong>Park</strong> Manager of<br />

Erlebnispark Steinau had a really nice idea with<br />

the publication of three mini kiddie books.<br />

The books came about due to the occasion of the<br />

erection of the new kiddie playground “Räuberwald”<br />

this year, with the park mascot Erli having a<br />

different adventure in each book.<br />

The stories were written by Sascha Ehlert, and<br />

illustrated by Jose Antonio Martin Vilchez. One of<br />

the mini-books is dedicated to his father.<br />

Senior Manager Theo Zwermann who was also an<br />

active author, and who had brought out a remarkable<br />

booklet a few years ago about the history of<br />

his other park in<br />

Lochmühle, Germany,<br />

published by himself.<br />

This book and the three<br />

new mini-books, each<br />

with 18 pages and in<br />

children’s format (12 x<br />

12 cm) are available at<br />

the parks. The new children<br />

booklets have<br />

been put on the market<br />

by Titus Verlag, Wiesbaden,<br />

and are available<br />

in book shops for<br />

1.50 Euro each. ■<br />

NEW BOOK<br />

Asurprisingly good book has just appeared on<br />

the market, with a competent overview of<br />

Germany’s roller coasters. Author of the book is<br />

coaster expert Ralph Latotzki, who is very well<br />

know, particularly for his longstanding activities<br />

with “Freundeskreis Freizeitparks FKF”. 152<br />

pages introduce nearly every roller coaster in<br />

Germany, and are not frugal with technical<br />

information and large coloured photos either.<br />

Because of the clearly presented geographical<br />

outline, each coaster tour can be better planned<br />

beforehand, but the book is not ideal take along,<br />

as the 25 x 32 hardcover belongs in the larger<br />

book sector. Additionally the author also gives information<br />

about the German manufacturers and<br />

various coaster types, and one illustrated chapter<br />

is dedicated to transportable constructions. The<br />

publication “Deutschlands Achterbahnen – Germany’s<br />

Rollercoasters” has been presented in<br />

both <strong>English</strong> and German text by the <strong>Park</strong>team AG<br />

and the Vista Point Verlag from Cologne.<br />

The book can be ordered in book shops or directly<br />

on www.parkscout.de at a price of 34.90 Euro –<br />

postage and handling is free within Germany, in<br />

the EU countries plus 6 Euro. (ISBN 978-3-86871-<br />

Ausschreibung einer<br />

Sonder-Themenfläche<br />

Anträge auf Betreibung einer Sonderfläche zu den drei DOM-Veranstaltungen<br />

des Jahres 2012 sind in Form eines Konzeptes mit<br />

Flächenplanung/Illustration bis spätestens 15. Januar 2012 an die<br />

Freie und Hansestadt Hamburg<br />

Behörde für Wirtschaft, Verkehr und Innovation –<br />

Stabsbereich Norddeutsche Zusammenarbeit, Marketing<br />

und Tourismus – Volksfeste und Sonderveranstaltungen<br />

Alter Steinweg 1-3 • 20459 Hamburg zu richten.<br />

Gegenstand der Veröffentlichung ist die Nutzung einer (Teil-) Fläche in der Größe von ca. 2.500 qm auf dem Heiligengeistfeld in<br />

20359 Hamburg. Die Gestaltung dieser Fläche soll thematisch der jeweiligen Jahreszeit (Frühjahr, Sommer und Herbst/ Winter)<br />

angepasst werden und die gleichzeitig stattfindenden Veranstaltungen des Hamburger DOM attraktiv ergänzen. Dabei soll die<br />

Bespielung der Fläche vor allem für eine mediale Beachtung der Domveranstaltungen sorgen und zusätzliche Besucherschichten<br />

zu einem Besuch des Hamburger DOM animieren. Das Konzept der Sonderfläche muss sich dabei deutlich vom Volksfestcharakter<br />

der zum gleichen Zeitpunkt stattfindenden Domveranstaltungen abgrenzen sowie ein bestimmtes Thema präsentieren.<br />

Thematisch passende Gastronomie-Stände dürfen nur sehr eingeschränkt und nach Absprache mit der ausschreibenden Behörde<br />

in die Fläche integriert werden.<br />

Veranstaltungszeiträume: Frühjahrsdom: 23.03.2012 bis 22.04.2012<br />

Sommerdom: 20.07.2012 bis 19.08.2012 • Winterdom: 09.11.2012 bis 09.12.2012<br />

Die Auf- und Abbauzeiten orientieren sich in der Regel nach den Auf- und Abbauzeiten der zugleich stattfindenden Domveranstaltung<br />

und werden im Vorwege mit dem Nutzungsgeber der Fläche abgestimmt.<br />

1. Für jeden Veranstaltungszeitraum ist ein gesondertes Konzept einzureichen.<br />

2. Maßgebend für den Zeitpunkt des Eingangs der Bewerbung ist das Datum des Poststempels.<br />

3. Bewerber/innen, die ihr Konzept verspätet oder unvollständig einreichen, scheiden bei der Entscheidung über die Zulassungen<br />

grundsätzlich aus.<br />

5. Die Entscheidungen über die Zulassung bzw. Nichtzulassung erfolgen für jede Veranstaltung in einem voneinander getrennten<br />

Verfahren. Zur Wahrung des Gleichheitsgrundsatzes werden bis zum Abschluss des Zulassungsverfahrens keine Auskünfte über<br />

Zulassungen, Ablehnungen oder Platzierungen erteilt.<br />

6. Frühere Zulassungen geben keine Gewähr dafür, dass Ausführung und -gestaltung weiterhin den Vorstellungen des Veranstalters<br />

zur Durchsetzung der Festkonzeption entsprechen.<br />

7. Ergänzungen bzgl. des eingereichten Konzeptes sind bis spätestens zwei Monate vor Veranstaltungsbeginn einzureichen, um im<br />

Vergabeverfahren Berücksichtigung finden zu können.<br />

8. Eine Haftung dafür, dass der Hamburger DOM tatsächlich und zum/zur angegebenen Zeitpunkt bzw. Zeitdauer stattfindet, wird<br />

nicht übernommen.<br />

9. Wird nach Ablauf der Bewerbungsfrist ein Mangel an geeigneten Bewerbungen zur Durchsetzung des Gestaltungswillens des<br />

Veranstalters festgestellt, kann der Veranstalter geeignete Betreiber (auch für kürzere Veranstaltungszeiträume) anwerben und<br />

nachträglich ein Konzept abfordern.<br />
