KALEIDOSCOPE<br />

HULLY GULLY<br />

Ludwig Roder from<br />

Karlsruhe has purchased a<br />

“Hully Gully”<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Norman Vogt<br />

Showman Ludwig Roder from Karlsruhe has<br />

taken over a “Hully Gully”, which he presented at<br />

the Easter Market in Karlsruhe for the first time.<br />

The showman, who also tours a dodgem track, a<br />

kiddie ride, a crêpe stall and an American ice stall,<br />

had been searching for a family ride for some time.<br />

He finally hit it lucky on the internet, where Oldenburg<br />

showman Meinecke offered the Mack classic,<br />

built in 1968, for sale. Once they struck the deal,<br />

the transports (one centre trailer and one baggage<br />

van) quickly rolled from the north to the south. To<br />

waste no time, the restoration of the centrepiece<br />

started immediately on its arrival at the premises,<br />

where it was sandblasted and newly painted. The<br />

electronic system was also overhauled and the<br />

motor, the hydraulic system and the gearing were<br />

upgraded to the latest standard, or replaced. Finally,<br />

the attraction was successfully certified by the<br />

TÜV.<br />

Ludwig Roder also plans to make a number of<br />

changes to enhance the visual appearance of the<br />

family ride, such as re-mounting the canvas between<br />

the light strips on the rotating member and<br />

the gondolas, and repainting the backflash. Further<br />

venues this year will be at, among others<br />

events, Oftersheim, Sandhausen, Kehl, Oberkirch<br />

and Laudenbach. The ride has ground measurements<br />

of 18 x 18 metres, is 6.70 metres high and<br />

accommodates a maximum of 40 people per ride.<br />

This “Hully Gully” may well not be completely unknown<br />

in this region, as some years ago the showman<br />

Spagerer had presented the ride at small and<br />

medium sized events throughout the region, before<br />

finally parting with it after many years of service,<br />

and selling the “Hully Gully” to a purchaser in the<br />

north of the country.<br />

BOOSTER MAXXX<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Norman Vogt<br />

It almost seems as if collecting giant propellers has<br />

been the new hobby of the French showman Gregory<br />

Kopp from Cannes for several months now. The<br />

“Airmaxx” (Capriolo) and the “Maxximum 2” (Capriolo<br />

10) that he purchased last year have now been<br />

followed by the third example; a “Booster Maxxx”,<br />

which he presented in Nancy for the first time.<br />

While the first two constructions are of Dutch origin, the<br />

new propeller was built by the Italian manufacturer<br />

Fabbri, which also built the 55-metre towering ride for<br />

the Denis-Kipp showman enterprise. All that the nice<br />

Frenchman said when asked how the takeover of the<br />

“Booster Maxx” came about, was that everything had<br />

happened so fast that before he was even aware of it,<br />

he was the new owner of the giant propeller! For the<br />

time being, he does not intend to part with any of his<br />

rides to accommodate the newcomer.<br />

From Nancy, the “Booster Maxxx” will travel to Metz,<br />

Strasbourg and Mulhouse, where it was heralded as a<br />

novelty. At the forthcoming venues it will be joined by<br />

the “Maxximum 2”, on which the gondolas can be rotated<br />

on their own axis. It may well prove to be a novelty<br />

in itself that one and the same showman operates two<br />

propeller attractions on one fairground. With the “Booster<br />

Maxxx”, the “Bomber Maxxx” and the “V-Maxxx”,<br />

three structurally identical constructions from Fabbri<br />

are now touring throughout France. Gregory Kopp<br />

parted with his “Swinger” some time ago though. The<br />

Wave-Swinger from Zierer has been only rarely presented<br />

lately.<br />

KALEIDOSCOPE<br />

DÜSSELDORF SCHAUSTELLERVERBAND E.V.<br />

LETTER TO THE EDITOR<br />

We received a response<br />

from a reader relating to the<br />

‘A Look Forward’ article on<br />

the Osterkirmes in Iserlohn<br />

in the April issue which,<br />

among other issues, dealt<br />

with the poor condition of the<br />

site. Mr Christian Maletz,<br />

member of the “Gesellschaft<br />

der Circusfreunde e.V.” (Association<br />

of Circus Friends),<br />

Schwabach observes that;<br />

“It is not always the circuses<br />

that are responsible for the<br />

deplorable condition of the<br />

site; many of these enterprises<br />

meticulously keep the<br />

site clean. However, not all<br />

of them do so!<br />

Text: Michael Petersen<br />

According to tradition, the general meeting of the<br />

Düsseldorf Showman Association was held at the<br />

“Schlüssel” brewery. In the very medieval city centre,<br />

the 51 members entitled to vote elected Oscar<br />

Bruch Jnr. as their new Chairman. With Oscar<br />

Bruch Jnr. receiving 26 votes, only one vote more<br />

than Bruno Schmelter, the incumbent Chairman of<br />

32 years, the election turned out to be extremely<br />

close and marked the end of a long era.<br />

Ever since the tender age of 18, Bruno Schmelter has<br />

been on the board, stepping in for both his female and<br />

male colleagues throughout the past 50 years. During<br />

his term in office he often used blunt words which a<br />

particular showman, Schütze, politician or some such<br />

other personage did not care to hear! Now it is Oscar<br />

Bruch Jnr.'s turn, a Chairman with good connections<br />

to the Düsseldorf 'body politic'. This is a big advantage<br />

in terms of coping with many minor and major problems<br />

in the Düsseldorf calendar of events. The very<br />

first issue to arise after the election was the organisation<br />

of the Osterkirmes on the Staufenplatz and the<br />

Frühlingskirmes on Tonhallenufer held on the banks of<br />

the Rhine. According to Oscar Bruch Jnr., there is also<br />

need for action with regard to the many minor Schützenfest<br />

events, which are no longer particularly lucrative<br />

for the showmen. For this reason, the Christmas<br />

Markets are growing increasingly important for local<br />

showman enterprises. As a result, Oscar Bruch Jnr. recognises<br />

a need for action also as far as the Düsseldorf<br />

Christmas Markets are concerned. As the Stuttgart<br />

event agency, which took over the organisation of<br />

the notably strong-turnover Christmas Market on<br />

Schadowplatz from the Düsseldorf Marketing Tourismus<br />

Agency last year, is currently gathering applications<br />

for this year’s Christmas Market, the new<br />

chairman demands that Düsseldorf showmen should<br />

be given priority in the approval procedure. After all,<br />

the future of a number of showmen is at stake, as in the<br />

long run no showman can survive on the revenue from<br />

the minor Schützenfest events and the large Rheinwiese<br />

Fair alone.<br />

We wish Oscar Bruch Jnr. great success as Chairman<br />

of the Düsseldorf showmen and thank Bruno Schmelter<br />

for his excellent cooperation with our editors. ■<br />

AMERICAN FLYER<br />

Text & Photos: Michael Petersen<br />

Year by year, for lovers of exotic rides it becomes<br />

increasingly worthwhile visiting the Bochum<br />

Osterkirmes. Following last year's surprising appearance<br />

of a “Sprungschanze”, or Flying Coaster,<br />

this year visitors were able to admire and try out a<br />

hand-built ride from the former GDR.<br />

Sven Feldmann from Plettenberg surprised the<br />

public with a presentation of the “Flyer” round ride<br />

he took over from the showman Mario Kühn from<br />

Weinböhla in the Meißen district some time ago.<br />

In the early 1980s, the ride was built by engineer<br />

Holger Hölzel from Neugersdorf in Upper Lusatia,<br />

in accordance with his own ideas and specifications.<br />

At that time, the construction was strongly<br />

influenced by the “Twister” rides from the VEB<br />

Zentralzirkus, highly popular in the GDR. On completion,<br />

the exotic ride was introduced<br />

at the Spring Festival in<br />

Bautzen in 1981. Four years later,<br />

it was sold to showman Steffen<br />

Heinze from Oderwitz, who founded<br />

his own showman enterprise<br />

with this ride. Since 1992, Mario<br />

Kühn has been touring the construction<br />

mainly in the Dresden<br />

region. This season, Sven Feldmann<br />

will present the ride with its<br />

pleasant and unspectacular ride<br />

pattern mainly at smaller Volksfest<br />

events in North-Rhine Westphalia<br />

and the Sauerland. Further information<br />

about this homemade<br />

ride can be looked up in the<br />

special publication “Schausteller<br />

und Volksfeste der DDR”. ■<br />

AWARD<br />

KALEIDOSCOPE<br />

The pretzel experts: Kevin,<br />

Andreas, Vivien and Sabine<br />

Grimmer (f.r.t.l.)<br />

AWARD<br />

Text & Photo: Ralf Schmitt<br />

The “Bretzel” (pretzel) from the Hamburg Grimmer<br />

family has recently been awarded the "Silberner<br />

Preis", or Silver Award of the DLG (German Agriculture<br />

Society).<br />

The Grimmer Bretzel was thoroughly checked according<br />

to the strict testing and quality criteria of the DLG.<br />

The inspection was carried out by experts from the<br />

ICE AGE<br />

Text & Photo: Ralf Schmitt<br />

The long winter has also affected the spring Volksfest<br />

events.<br />

In fact, almost all spring events had to cope with<br />

lower numbers of visitors. Due to enduring freezing<br />

temperatures, a number of sectors had to close down<br />

or could not even open at all. This was the case with<br />

regard to, among other sectors, the water rides,<br />

where ice floated in the water course instead of passenger<br />

boats. Funhouse constructions with water<br />

effects were not working either. Moreover, flower<br />

fields of science, inspection, food industry and handicraft<br />

– without being aware of the manufacturer, brand<br />

or purchase price. This is why DLG tests are considered<br />

to be scientifically up-to-date, independent and impartial.<br />

The official certificate for the bretzel has already<br />

found a place of honour in the travelling “Bretzelbäckerei”<br />

from the Grimmer family, and many congratulations<br />

on the award can also be found on the<br />

showman family’s Facebook page.<br />

■<br />

lotteries could not open for a while as the plants would<br />

surely have frozen solid. Particularly tragically affected<br />

were the 300 artists at Robert Birk's flea circus. On<br />

its way to the Easter appearance at the “Jahrmarkt<br />

anno Dazumal” on the Rhine open air museum in<br />

Kommern, the fleas froze to death in their polystyrene<br />

pet carrier.<br />

■<br />

The Verkehrsverein in<br />

Speyer has thought up<br />

something special for<br />

this year’s Brezelfest<br />

(11 th to 16 th July): they<br />

wish to achieve an entry<br />

into the Guinness Book<br />

of World Records.<br />

On the largest Volksfest in<br />

Oberrhein on the 13 th of<br />

July there are to be as<br />

many women as possible<br />

dressed in the traditional<br />

Dirndl. The outfit must<br />

comprise of a bodice and<br />

a skirt (one or two piece),<br />

and blouse and apron. The<br />

current world record<br />

stands at 1,176 participants<br />

who attended the<br />

Gäubodenvolksfest in<br />

Straubing.<br />

The strict regulations have<br />

been defined by the London<br />

firm “Guinness World<br />

Records” and have to be<br />

adhered to, or the record<br />

attempt will not be acknowledged.<br />

Interior view – fun for both<br />

young and old<br />

Text: Nils Benthien<br />

At the Frühlingsjahrmarkt in Osnabrück, held from<br />

15 th to 24 th March this year, the showman family Cornelius<br />

from Wallenhorst celebrated the successful<br />

première of their newly purchased 3-level Funhouse<br />

“Die verrückte Farm”. The attraction offers<br />

fun for both young and old all around a farm theme.<br />

“Die Verrückte Farm” is the first Walkthrough construction<br />

built by the WOATT Rides firm from Worms.<br />

While the draft came from the Elfering firm, the Atelier<br />

Siefert Company was responsible for its realisation.<br />

Moreover, the Dröge firm provided the electrical equipment,<br />

installing only LED lights. The construction has<br />

ground measurements of 18 x 4 metres and is 11<br />

metres high. A total of 20 effects have been installed<br />

along the obstacle course that visitors have to negotiate<br />

inside the construction.<br />

At the start, the course leads visitors through a rolling<br />

barrel (which can also be bypassed), a stylised car<br />

wash, brave a moving staircase, a tilting moving floor,<br />

rolling belts, and work their way past punching balls,<br />

across a number of rotating discs, a moving bridge, a<br />

suspension bridge and a Toboggan slide! Later this<br />

season, additional air and water effects, soap bubbles<br />

and fog are to be installed inside the construction,<br />

which consists of two wagons. While one of them is incorporated<br />

into the construction, the second one holds<br />

the paybox and the slide.<br />

This year, “Die verrückte Farm” will also be presented<br />

at, among others venues, in Lower Saxony, Hessen<br />

and North-Rhine Westphalia; for example, at the Volksfest<br />

events in Bruchhausen-Vilsen and Ibbenbüren. In<br />

addition, the Cornelius family will continue to operate<br />

the “Around the World” Ferris Wheel.<br />

Among the novelties evoking great enthusiasm<br />

at Volksfest events in 2013 will also be the compact<br />

Looping Coaster “Cobra” from Angelo<br />

Agtsch. A detailed report on the construction’s<br />

launch into the season will be published in the next<br />

Kirmes & <strong>Park</strong> Revue edition. Here are some<br />

photos from its first venue, the Palmkirmes in Recklinghausen.<br />

REGENSBURG<br />

These days, <strong>Regensburg</strong> has some<br />

180,000 residents and just as many inhabitants<br />

throughout the surrounding<br />

region. After Munich, Nürnberg, and Augsburg,<br />

<strong>Regensburg</strong> is the fourth largest city<br />

in the Free State of Bavaria. It is the capital<br />

of the Upper Palatinate district and has<br />

been a UNESCO World Heritage Site<br />

since 2006. In this interview, Reinhard Kellner<br />

introduces, among other factors, the<br />

attractions at the May Dult event.<br />

Did you want to be Fairground<br />

Director way back then and play a substantial<br />

part in organising the Dult<br />

event?<br />

Yes and no. As food inspector I seemed<br />

to meet the job description. Over the<br />

years, my popularity of and understanding<br />

for the world of showmen and marketers<br />

has steadily increased – this could be<br />

taken as “yes”. “No”, as I guessed how<br />

much of an administrative workload was<br />

involved.<br />

How did you get this job?<br />

As my predecessor was no longer<br />

available all of a sudden, I was entrusted<br />

with the organisation of the Autumn Dult<br />

1993 ten days before the start of the event.<br />

I was thrown in at the deep end and had<br />

to learn quickly how to “swim”.<br />

Do you regret the last twenty<br />

years?<br />

Reinhard Kellner (photo) works<br />

for the <strong>Regensburg</strong> City Authorities<br />

in the Department for Public<br />

Policy and Transport. For precisely<br />

20 years, he has been fairground<br />

director at the two <strong>Regensburg</strong><br />

Dult events in early<br />

May and in late August.<br />

Not for a second! All in all, I am highly<br />

satisfied with my job and do it with passion,<br />

even though the administrative workload<br />

is much greater now than I would ever<br />

have guessed. The Dult events are an essential<br />

part of my life and, to be honest,<br />

preoccupy my mind the whole year round.<br />

What other tasks do you have?<br />

Text: Helmut Bresler<br />

Photos: Helmut Bresler, Stadt <strong>Regensburg</strong><br />

A lot of other events are held on the<br />

Dult site, such as circus appearances, flea<br />

markets, exhibitions, or car and truck driving<br />

and safety trainings. Moreover, there<br />

are the municipal markets, and not to forget<br />

the Christmas Market - the highlight of<br />

the Advent season.<br />

10


Which of the two Dult events is the most popular one?<br />

Basically, both events are equally popular, at least with the visitors.<br />

The May Dult is noticeably more coveted among the showmen though.<br />

This is due to the lack of competition from other events and the public's<br />

longing for outdoor activities after the long winter break. This year, the<br />

event will even be extended to 18 days and will already be opened on<br />

Thursday, 9 th May, Christi Ascension Day.<br />

What is the origin of the <strong>Regensburg</strong> Dult events?<br />

The Dult events in the city district of Stadtamhof were first documented<br />

in 1398. Thus they are more than three times as old as the Munich<br />

Wiesn and will celebrate their 625 th anniversary next year. For me, there<br />

is truth in the saying “Tradition does not mean preserving the ashes but<br />

keeping the flame alight”. The locations changed and the last serious<br />

change was made in 1972, when the events were moved to the current<br />

location – the <strong>Regensburg</strong> Dult site with the characteristic triangular<br />

square on the bank of the Danube.<br />

55 Meter<br />

100 km/h<br />

What do you remember in particular?<br />

For example, the opening of the May Dult 20 years ago. It was the<br />

first appearance of the beer tent patron family Hahn, and after the tapping<br />

of the keg, the Jetzendorf Hinterhofmusikanten gave a concert. In the<br />

beginning, their rustic style and their music played rather by metric value<br />

rather than by notes came as a big surprise. But in the end, they captured<br />

the audience in the tent and it was a fantastic evening. An exceptional<br />

spectacle was the world première of the “Free-Fall-Tower” from the<br />

Michael Goetzke family at the Autumn Dult 1997. The whole industry<br />

watched <strong>Regensburg</strong> anxiously.<br />

How many applications do you receive?<br />

It is hard work for the postman – meanwhile we can choose from<br />

some 1,000 applications for both events.<br />

The Dult at night<br />

The offer is well-received by the Dult visitors.<br />

How many visitors do you have?<br />

Which novelties will be presented at the<br />

<strong>Regensburg</strong> May Dult?<br />

I am not a fan of astronomically large visitor<br />

numbers. We attach much importance to a good<br />

family-friendly Dult and our participants are handpicked.<br />

In beautiful weather, visitors at each Dult<br />

outnumber locals by far. The event is highly popular<br />

in the surrounding region, and visitors come from a<br />

radius of up to 100 kilometres, as can be seen from<br />

the vehicle licence plates.<br />

Due to increasing visitor attendance, further toilet<br />

facilities have been arranged for, even though the<br />

number has already been steadily stepped up in the<br />

last few years.<br />

A whole lot – four attractions will celebrate their<br />

première; namely the “Booster Maxxx” from Hoefnagels-Denis,<br />

the “Flip Fly” over-the-top ride from Thomas<br />

Clauß, the “Rio Rapidos” water ride from Siegfried<br />

Kaiser Jnr., and the “Bootsfahrt” from Sascha<br />

Barth for our young visitors. After a break of more than<br />

10 years, I also consider the “Super Mario World”<br />

glass maze from Hubert Markmann as a novelty. The<br />

“Show and Fun” sector will be represented by the<br />

“Geisterschloss” including animation from Kunz, and<br />

the “Lach & Freu Haus” from Geno Distel. But that is<br />

not all…<br />

Hallo <strong>Regensburg</strong> – wir sind wieder mit dabei !<br />

Eugen Distel – Moderne Vergnügungsbetriebe<br />

Memlingstr. 11 • 81479 München • Tel. 089/795363 oder 0171/6501158 • E-Mail: mail@eugen-distel.de<br />

Will you continue to present classics?<br />

Of course, they are highly popular and simply an indispensable<br />

must. Textbook examples are, among<br />

others, the dodgem track from Hanna Lindner and Willenborg’s<br />

tall Ferris Wheel. They simply cannot be left out.<br />

I myself prefer sitting in a Willenborg Ferris Wheel gondola,<br />

enjoying the magnificent view across the Dult<br />

and the city. Moreover, the new perspective often<br />

gives rise to new ideas.<br />

What is the importance of the adjoining<br />

market?<br />

Which culinary delicacies will be offered at the<br />

Dult?<br />

The culinary offering will leave nothing to be desired.<br />

In addition to the ample variety of food offered<br />

by snack booths, there will be the two large tents from<br />

Hahn Glöckl, along with three fish stall from Fisch Maier,<br />

Hofmeister, and Schmalzl, as well as the “Amigos”<br />

Steakhouse from Balanowski. Moreover, the Kübler<br />

firm will invite the public to its “Bierdorf” and live music<br />

will also be offered inside “Bauers Weinstadl”.<br />

The combination of the commodity market with the<br />

fairground is something special, as Volksfest events<br />

often present only showman attractions along with the<br />

beer tents and snack booths. As is tradition, the <strong>Regensburg</strong><br />

Dult events focus on the sales stalls on the<br />

commodity market though, offering first-class quality<br />

at reasonable prices, convincing novelties and trends,<br />

and competent expert service. As a result it has<br />

achieved local and regional importance.<br />

Who is in charge of advertising?<br />

Which ride do you prefer – Ferris Wheel or<br />

Break-Dance?<br />

While Goetzke’s Break-Dance is a modern<br />

classic ride and highly popular with young people,<br />

Our experts, the “Werbegemeinschaft der <strong>Regensburg</strong>er<br />

Dulten” with Michael Frank, publican Michael<br />

Hahn, Isidora Hörmandinger, and beer tent patron Alfred<br />

Glöckl. They press every button and regularly come up<br />

with new ideas in addition to the standard programme.<br />

17


SPECIAL<br />

What will be on offer?<br />

An ample selection including the festival procession,<br />

two fireworks displays, Ladies Night, two Family<br />

Days and two Senior's Days, as well as the popular<br />

Dultmaus chips. Moreover, the Dult bus will go every<br />

20 minutes from the spacious car park to the Dult-fairground<br />

again. This is a free service we offer to the<br />

visitors.<br />

Seit 30 Jahren<br />

ein bewährter<br />

Partner<br />

What is most important for you at the Dult?<br />

A family-friendly layout and a harmonious mixture<br />

offering something for all age groups – in a safe<br />

surrounding. We do not want to offer a binge-drinking<br />

party atmosphere, but rather a classic, first-class<br />

Volksfest event. This includes high-quality ride attractions<br />

and entertainments, as well as food and drinks.<br />

Will the Dult event remain a municipal event?<br />

A view over the household<br />

goods market (Warendult)<br />

Of course it will, and the city authorities will continue<br />

to be the organiser, with the Department for<br />

Public Policy being in overall charge. I always say:<br />

“Security and public order is not all, but without security<br />

and public order, everything is nothing." ■<br />

ERLANGEN<br />

Text:<br />

Helmut Bresler<br />

City of <strong>Erlangen</strong><br />

It is a phenomenon, an indescribable<br />

cult event that is unique throughout<br />

Germany. The <strong>Erlangen</strong> Bergkerwa is<br />

unparalleled in the ample selection of<br />

Volksfest and Schützenfest events,<br />

parish fairs and village festivals. Introduced<br />

in 1755, the Berg event has put<br />

up a brave fight for two and a half<br />

centuries, and is more popular than<br />

ever these days. There are two essential<br />

elixirs of life that keep it young at heart;<br />

namely the university and the Siemens<br />

firm. Those who have been to <strong>Erlangen</strong><br />

once, no matter on what occasion and<br />

smelled the aroma in the beer cellars<br />

will surely return at Pentecost, and without<br />

bothering with an entry in their<br />

laptops or diaries. They simply 'feel it';<br />

Pentecost means Berg – full stop!<br />

It is all happening at the Berg, and visitors<br />

who are to attend are faced with a<br />

difficult question at the end of Bergstrasse,<br />

“Do we turn right or left this<br />

year”? Those turning left, will find themselves<br />

in an endless beer paradise;<br />

while those turning right will enter an<br />

amusement area with numerous ride<br />

attractions, among them a Ferris<br />

Wheel, shooting galleries and Continental<br />

pick stands; all in all some 100<br />

operations. Nine hundred people work<br />

at the Berg, one of the largest traditional<br />

events in Bavaria, looking after more<br />

than 1 million expected visitors from all<br />

over the world. A total of 15,000 seats<br />

are waiting for crowds of visitors so that<br />

more than 5,000 hectolitres of beer<br />

might once again have been served by<br />

the end of the event. Now it is time to<br />

drain the beer steins! In other words –<br />

the Berg event is about to open for the<br />

258th time, and with a special novelty<br />

in addition to all this. For the first time,<br />

the traditional tapping of the keg in<br />

“Dinkel’s Frankendorf” will be carried<br />

out with Kitzmann Bier. Welcome!<br />

For more information:<br />

www.der-berg-ruft.de<br />

The Bergkirchweih introduced in 1755<br />

numbers among the oldest Volksfest<br />

events in Germany. Actually, it dates<br />

back even further into the past. In the<br />

late 17 th century, the first rock-cut cellars<br />

of the breweries were built at the<br />

foot of the Burgberg. Due also to students’<br />

reports, the Bergkirchweih<br />

evolved into a popular beer festival<br />

enjoying cult status in the middle of<br />

the 19 th century, attracting visitors<br />

from Nürnberg and Fürth even back<br />

then. Despite interruption during the<br />

two World Wars, the “Berg” steadily<br />

developed into an event where these<br />

days visitors far outnumber the <strong>Erlangen</strong><br />

locals.<br />

19


It was a game of life and death – and a true Berg<br />

motif from the 1970s. A very special sensation,<br />

always besieged by the public was the “Krokodil<br />

Ringkampf”, or crocodile wrestling match,<br />

with showman Helmuth Schulze as “Carello”,<br />

fearless artist much-vaunted in the parade,<br />

plunging into the water – and surviving! The<br />

highlight and final was the presentation of his<br />

own head in the dangerous jaws of the huge<br />

saurian.<br />

For a good decade, there has been a new tradition<br />

at the Berg – on Carnival Sunday its most<br />

loyal fans meet at the cellar, bringing beer and a<br />

snack, looking forward to the tapping of the keg<br />

on the Thursday before Pentecost. By the way,<br />

this ceremony is held in any weather – as a general<br />

rule it is snowy and freezing temperatures.<br />

The “Berg and wine”; this is simply a must! For<br />

the fourth time this year, Sabine (r.) and Nadja<br />

Kunstmann (l.) will present their “Erlanger Berghütt’n”.<br />

They take the juice of the vine from its hiding<br />

place and put it into the centre of their operation.<br />

Oh yes, - wine works up an appetite, which<br />

is why they serve freshly baked Flammkuchen, or<br />

Tarte Flambé, in numerous variations.<br />

It is not really possible to name the most celebrated<br />

duties of the <strong>Erlangen</strong> Lord Mayor at the<br />

Bergkirchweih. One may just as well ask for the<br />

best drop of beer being filtered out of a 100-<br />

litre barrel.<br />

"At the end of the day, all duties at our 'Berg' are<br />

fun. Despite all the cheerfulness, my duties are<br />

not only mere fun far from the city hall. They also<br />

include serious and important discussions, for<br />

example with the representative from the<br />

Ministry of Finance about changing the<br />

abandoned US military base into a modern<br />

future suburb that took place some time ago."<br />

Armin Mangold (r.) is the new municipal Berg<br />

organiser, supported by Ina Baus-Böwing (l.).<br />

Currently contributing their long-term experience<br />

are Ute Völklein and Werner Schachameyer.<br />

The <strong>Erlangen</strong> Road Traffic Licensing<br />

Department and the Public Order Office are in<br />

charge of organising the Berg event. From more<br />

than 500 applications received, the 100 most<br />

appealing attractions from all over Germany<br />

were chosen.<br />

The Berg goes wild – in the <strong>Erlangen</strong> pubs from<br />

midnight on, this is guaranteed. The Berg is disqualified<br />

as to being the aperitif for a long party<br />

night by spending money in the pubs not at the<br />

Berg event. At 10 a.m. the fairground is deserted,<br />

and when it's hustling and bustling 10.30<br />

p.m. it is not long before it has to close. These<br />

two contradictory aspects are hardly harmonious.<br />

It is high time to take action!<br />

Unique throughout Germany is the invention by<br />

<strong>Erlangen</strong> showman Hans-Dieter Schultze who,<br />

thrilled by the park version of the Domino at the<br />

Vienna Prater, worked diligently for a long time to<br />

create a transportable version. A preview was<br />

made at the Bamberg Frühjahrsplärrer 1985, before<br />

the ride made its official première at the Berg<br />

event. Under the management of the showman<br />

Heinrich Michel from Hessen, the ride has been<br />

successfully operated abroad for many years.<br />

20


The way up the Bergstrasse whets the appetite<br />

for happy beer drinking and ride fun. The public<br />

gets properly attuned to the Berg from the Schützenweg<br />

at the latest, where it is blinking and<br />

glittering, and one can clearly read: The Berg is<br />

calling! Schweizer’s Knusperhaus is the perfect<br />

entrance gate. Adolf Schweizer had originally<br />

come up with the idea for the effective theme,<br />

and now his son Werner Schweizer is in charge.<br />

Play a fanfare! The very beginning was in 1948,<br />

when Fritz and Maria Liebermann sold fried sausages<br />

and fish rolls to the <strong>Erlangen</strong> public at the<br />

entrance to the Berg fairground. Today they sell<br />

chicken and hocks at the Altstädter Schießhaus;<br />

to describe the quality would be similar to carrying<br />

coals to Newcastle. Congratulations to Fritz<br />

and Annette Stahlmann on their 65 th Berg<br />

Anniversary from Berg spokesman Konrad Beugel<br />

(m.).<br />

The flag consecration ceremony took place at the<br />

BLV-Delegiertentag, of the Bavarian Showman<br />

Association, in <strong>Erlangen</strong> in January 1995. Willy<br />

Kunstmann (l.) and Ludwig Keppner (r.) proudly<br />

present the new showpiece.<br />

Oktoberfest at the Berg. Two publicans drink to<br />

the Berg’s success, and are decidedly pleased<br />

with the unique ambience, marvelling at how<br />

smooth the operation has been even under<br />

stress. They want to return: Wiggerl Hagn from<br />

the Löwenbräu beer tent (r.) and Peter Schottenhamel<br />

from the Schottenhamel tent to his left.<br />

<strong>Erlangen</strong> – during Pentecost.<br />

As space was limited, it had to be measured to<br />

the very millimetre to plan the attraction for<br />

<strong>Erlangen</strong> conditions.<br />

What fits perfectly to <strong>Erlangen</strong> is also good for<br />

Nürnberg, Schweinfurt, Würzburg, Rosenheim<br />

and Munich, thought Heini Schäfer, and commissioned<br />

his ride at the Schwarzkopf firm in<br />

Münsterhausen, Swabia. His plan worked out<br />

well. “Die Geister bitten zur Kasse” was presented<br />

at the Berg and enjoyed huge success<br />

for many years.<br />

Erich Reim (2 nd f.l.) has shaped the Berg as no one<br />

else before or since. As a civil servant at the <strong>Erlangen</strong><br />

city authorities he has taken care of many<br />

details, and with his vision he has stamped his<br />

own distinctive mark on the Berg event. The<br />

credit for the ride site at the end, and the toilet<br />

facilities in the middle of the area, as well as the<br />

underground power supply, go to him. Some<br />

years ago he was awarded the Federal Cross of<br />

Merit, among other honours, due to his numerous<br />

voluntary commitments; well and truly deserved!<br />

Yet he has always been extremely modest about<br />

this conspicuous recognition.<br />

Exactly 30 years ago, after continuous rain and<br />

freezing temperatures at Pentecost, the Bergkirchweih<br />

1983 was extended for the first time in<br />

its history. The public split into two camps –<br />

traditionalists vehemently opposed an extension,<br />

declaring it “outrageous”, whereas<br />

more open-minded Berg fans were happy<br />

about two additional days of operation and encouraged<br />

a general extension of the Kerwa.<br />

Almost 50 years ago, a Munich showman was<br />

interested in a site at the Berg event. Heini Schäfer<br />

was determined to have a special Ghost Ride<br />

built, which he wanted to present at the strongest<br />

turnover fairground throughout Germany –<br />

No easy terrain – the Berg.<br />

Too narrow, too steep, too lopsided? No<br />

problem! What does not fit is made to fit. This<br />

has also been the case with Werner Rudolph’s<br />

kiddie rides; fire engine, motorbike and tram<br />

make their rounds reliably.<br />

The <strong>Erlangen</strong> breweries’ advantage<br />

was decisively due to the rockcut<br />

cellar in the Burgberg, where<br />

they were able to store and mature<br />

their beer at constant low temperatures;<br />

in 1750 there were 14<br />

breweries. When Carl Linde invented<br />

the refrigeration machine in<br />

1876, the advantage of the cellars<br />

was gone, and a reliable export<br />

started to go downhill. Survivors to<br />

this day are the Kitzmann and the<br />

Steinbach brewery.<br />

The Berg – a mass phenomenon.<br />

Yesterday, today, and probably<br />

also tomorrow.<br />

There are only a few events as well<br />

received by all classes of the population;<br />

with Maier sitting next to<br />

Müller, where blue-collar workers,<br />

white-collar workers, and university<br />

professors raise their glasses to<br />

each other and the community is<br />

alive. This was already the case in<br />

the 1960s, when the “Wilde Maus”<br />

wooden coaster was the highlight<br />

at Berg.<br />

The <strong>Erlangen</strong> dialect poet Hermann<br />

Riedmüller (1903 – 1990)<br />

memorialised the Berg in a poem.<br />

His verses are as current today as<br />

in the late 1950s when he wrote<br />

them, probably drinking a litre of<br />

fresh Kerwa beer during the time.<br />

Die Bergkerwa<br />

Will mer Erlang richti kenna,<br />

Even though the legendary <strong>Erlangen</strong><br />

publican and restaurateur Toni<br />

Trautner, who strongly shaped and<br />

influenced the Berg event passed<br />

away 21 years ago this summer, he<br />

is still on the mind of many Berg<br />

visitors. The “hen house” in his tent,<br />

the publican’s performance on the<br />

kettledrums, the flower parade, or<br />

– high up on the stage – the emptying<br />

of his special beer mug in one<br />

draught, will always be remembered.<br />

It is high time to pay tribute to<br />

his merits – with the “Toni-Trautner-<br />

Strasse”. It remains to be seen if<br />

the Lord Mayor and the Berg<br />

spokesmen will eventually succeed<br />

in the realisation of this plan.

Attractions & Novelties<br />

Happy Sailor – Manfred Howey<br />

The unrivalled “Happy Sailor” Mack ride from<br />

Manfred Howey is a classic round ride for all<br />

generations.<br />

Lovingly equipped with many details and always<br />

in tip-top shape, it is without a doubt a<br />

feast for the eyes. The singing captain in the entrance<br />

area will once again cause quite a furore.<br />

Attention – please get on board, the next ride is<br />

about to start.<br />

The Tower – Charles Blume: This year, the Berg<br />

novelties will take the visitors high up in the sky.<br />

This is also true for the largest transportable skyscraper<br />

in the world. Charles Blume will build up<br />

his “The Tower” skyscraper in the middle of the<br />

Berg-fairground. The attraction offers, among<br />

other features, superb 3-D-effects, the observation<br />

platform on the ninth floor, the singing rocker<br />

granny, and the lounge on the ground floor. The<br />

large LED video screen in the outside area – and<br />

the Tower is steadily extended. By the way, visitors<br />

are welcomed by Master Salvatore himself.<br />

Power Tower 2 – Ewald Schneider<br />

The tallest Berg-attraction, even taller than the<br />

Ferris Wheel, is the largest transportable Freefall<br />

Tower in the world. The gondola climbs to an<br />

impressive height of 59 metres up into the sky,<br />

before plummeting down towards the ground at<br />

a top speed of 15 m/s. The passenger carriers<br />

can virtually dance – up and down in various<br />

patterns – on their way down the long mast. All<br />

travelling Freefall Towers have already appeared<br />

at the Berg event; this year it will be the best!<br />

Twister – Coaster Edmund Kaiser & Sohn<br />

Every year, the Berg event has to do without a<br />

coaster, as the fairground is simply not suitable<br />

for large constructions. Edmund Kaiser will now<br />

bring a compact track construction for the<br />

whole family to the Berg; namely the Twister.<br />

Please get on board the coaster for a ride along<br />

ascents and descents in rotating gondolas.<br />

Cyber Space – A.E.Kaiser: Loopings without<br />

end, racing through the sky at a top speed of<br />

100 km/h – that’s the “Cyber Space”, providing<br />

visitors with a surge of adrenaline. The Kaiser<br />

family has been tied to the Berg event for decades,<br />

for example with the pony ride at the entrance<br />

to the Berg-fairground, or with the “Night<br />

Fly”, presented a good 10 years ago. This year,<br />

they will introduce another attraction, which will<br />

surely blow the socks off even the most experienced<br />

parachutists, built up on their private site.<br />

It is and remains the Berg-landmark. The 300-<br />

ton “Europa-Rad” takes its passengers up to a<br />

proud 55 metres, from where they have a view<br />

over Franconia Switzerland and the neighbouring<br />

cities of Nürnberg and Fürth, which<br />

seem to be almost within reach. For 24 years,<br />

the Kipp showman family has been a popular<br />

It will once again be the classic meeting<br />

point for the younger generation: the dodgem<br />

track. In 1959, the <strong>Erlangen</strong> Kunstman<br />

showman firm opened up with the self<br />

operated ride and has regularly brought<br />

new, modern constructions to the Berg<br />

during the last decades. The family first appeared<br />

at the Berg in 1920 – back then with<br />

PREMIÈRE<br />

New in Germany:<br />

a “Street Fighter” with looping<br />

The first “Street Fighter 16 Revolution”<br />

from the Italian ride<br />

manufacturer Technical <strong>Park</strong><br />

from Melara has been more than<br />

well received in Germany – in<br />

every conceivable sense. At the<br />

Palmkirmes in Recklinghausen,<br />

the brand new ride celebrated its<br />

successful première.<br />

Text: Karl Ruisinger<br />

The decoration was<br />

modelled on the movie giant<br />

“Hulk”<br />

The Beast<br />

According to its proud owners Alwin and Monika<br />

Zinnecker from Neumarkt St. Veit, it was the<br />

perfect decision to purchase this attraction. Previously,<br />

the Bavarian showman couple (Alwin and<br />

Monika have been together for 32 years, and they<br />

will celebrate their “100th birthday” this year) had<br />

considered the change (or rather “return”) from a<br />

Funhouse (“Geistervilla”) to the thrill attraction as<br />

something of a risk. But now, after the successful<br />

première, they are both relieved and happy to<br />

have started a new chapter of their lives with a<br />

very “young” ride attraction, and at the same<br />

time a new traction unit.<br />

The scepticism of the occasional self-appointed<br />

“experts”, who feared the new and unusual “The<br />

Beast” concept – where every single passenger<br />

can opt for a ride with or without somersaults –<br />

would be hard to realize, proved to be entirely unfounded.<br />

Also immediately working out well was the<br />

build up of the station area and the sign posting of<br />

the access points. They were both so successfully<br />

carried out that there are no problems in organising<br />

the two passenger types (on the one hand thrill<br />

34


Especially the younger<br />

generation took the chance to<br />

go on the 360° trip<br />

seekers opting for somersaults, on the other more<br />

“cautious” swinging friends). Families easily found<br />

their way to 120° of swinging, while more daring<br />

passengers purposefully went for the entrance to<br />

the 360° ride. However, it was noticeable that there<br />

was a predominance of somersaulting passengers<br />

mainly in the evening hours.<br />

As the theme of the attraction – which was awarded<br />

the FKF Cup at its première – was modelled after<br />

the well-known movie blockbuster “Hulk”, shades<br />

of green are the predominant colours of the “The<br />

Beast” combined with a sophisticated LED-light system,<br />

providing the entire construction with a fantastic<br />

atmosphere with the aid of ingenious colour<br />

changes. With this innovative illumination, “The<br />

Beast” takes the top position among the compact<br />

constructions. Its technical data are identical to<br />

those of the prototype, which was introduced as<br />

“High Energy 2” in France last year: 16 passengers,<br />

PREMIÈRE<br />

Première in Cologne: the<br />

third “Inversion” for Germany<br />

The Cologne spring Volksfest<br />

was the première location for<br />

the third major ride of type<br />

“Inversion” from manufacturer<br />

KMG, located in Germany<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Michael Petersen<br />

Avenger<br />

The Cologne Frühlingsvolksfest was the première<br />

venue for the third type “Inversion” KMG<br />

major ride based in Germany. Thomas Weber from<br />

Herford was the first German showman to decide<br />

to purchase a looping swing of this type, touring<br />

under the name of “Flash”. A short time later, the<br />

Clauß family from Munich ordered an example with<br />

a completely different design, which is touring<br />

under the name of “Flip Fly”. In Cologne, the Holzem<br />

family from Düren has now introduced the<br />

third construction of this type. Indeed, when it be-<br />

38


came known that the Holzem family had ordered<br />

another “Inversion” example, rumours that a scrap<br />

merchant had bought a looping swing quickly<br />

spread, as the name of Holzem could not be<br />

connected to the showman industry. There are a<br />

few facts that stand in contradiction to these<br />

rumours though. It is indeed correct that Dirk Holzem<br />

has successfully operated a scrap and metal<br />

trade for many years. Yet at the same time, Anja<br />

and Dirk Holzem's family has far-reaching roots in<br />

the showman sector.<br />

Their looping swing clearly differs from the two<br />

constructions already touring throughout Germany.<br />

The “Avenger” features a convincing, completely<br />

different and unusual design. Red, blue and<br />

silver are the predominant colours of the attraction.<br />

The entire lighting arrangement perfectly matches<br />

the harmonious, varied and unobtrusive overall<br />

theme of the attraction, which is based on the American<br />

box office hit “The Avengers”. The ride was<br />

discreetly painted by Daniel Geibel, known for his<br />

successful artistic design of a number of Dietz Funhouses.<br />

After its appearance in Cologne, the backflash<br />

is to be equipped with further lighting effects.<br />

The backflash-staff wagon, as well as the paybox,<br />

were built by showman Peter Heinen.<br />

This year, the “Avenger” will be presented at,<br />

among other venues, Bremerhaven, Cuxhaven,<br />

Michelstadt, Berlin, Kassel (Zissel), Aachen,<br />

Oesede, and Mayen.<br />

WOLFSBURG<br />

This year, an XL version of the popular and<br />

largest Schützenfest between the Harz Uplands<br />

and Luneburg Heath will be celebrated in<br />

Wolfsburg – famous for its car manufacturing industry<br />

in Lower Saxony. Due to Easter being early<br />

this year and so with its effect on the other church<br />

holidays, the week of Ascension Day will fall on the<br />

traditional date of the Schützen and Volksfest event<br />

in Wolfsburg, close to Labour Day. As a result, the<br />

planners came up with the idea of extending the<br />

event by three days, and holding the 63 rd Schützen<br />

and Volksfest from 30 th April (Tuesday) to Sunday,<br />

12 th May 2013<br />

Once the Wolfsburg city authorities had approved<br />

the application for a one-time extension of the<br />

traditional event (the 'brainchild' of "Colonel Schützen”,<br />

Rolf Wolters in October 2012), and the realization had<br />

been coordinated with beer tent patron Marris, the<br />

contracted fairground director (and himself a showman)<br />

Peter Vorlop was able to begin with the plans and<br />

approvals for the Volksfest, now lasting thirteen days.<br />

As a “Tanz in den Mai”, or “Dance into May” event has<br />

not been established at the Wolfsburg Schützen and<br />

Volksfest, a pyrotechnic spectacle called “Aller in<br />

Flammen” is now to be held on the opening day, when<br />

attractions will open at 5 p.m. Designed and carried<br />

out by pyrotechnic expert Sven Schneider, this highlight<br />

consisting of a Bengali fireworks display on the<br />

River Aller bank and a volcano effect on an observation<br />

hill nearby, is to entice the public to the<br />

Allerpark. Further additional incentives,<br />

apart from the “affixed” dates such<br />

as Labour Day, Ascension Day<br />

(“Father's Day”) and Mother’s Day will<br />

be a Family Day on Wednesday 8 th<br />

May and a large fireworks display on<br />

Saturday 11 th May 2013.<br />

Advertising measures have been increased<br />

for the Wolfsburg city area<br />

and the surrounding region, and was<br />

banners, canvases and more than 200 back-lit<br />

City-Light posters in public spaces and at bus stops<br />

will be set up in the run-up to and during the event.<br />

Inside the festival hall from the Marris firm a changing<br />

music and show programme will be presented, the<br />

highlights being the traditional dinner of the Wolfsburg<br />

Schützengesellschaft e.V., an evening with the show<br />

band “Chari Vari” for Wolfsburg societies and enterprises<br />

on 8 th May, and a varied tent programme on Ascension<br />

Day on 9 th May from 11 a.m. with the Stadtwerke<br />

Wolfsburg AG orchestra and the Austrian folk<br />

music stars “Ladiner” inviting visitors to dance and<br />

entertainment.<br />

Numerous Novelties<br />

Fairground director Peter Vorlop once again succeeded<br />

in putting together a fairground peppered with<br />

numerous novelties in Allerpark this year. The some 65-<br />

metre high double-propeller “Flasher” from the FTE<br />

Ahrend firm will provide visitors with a surge of adrenaline,<br />

just as will the “Artistico” Ferris Wheel from<br />

the Köhrmann family commanding a fantastic view<br />

across the surrounding region,<br />

which will return to Wolfsburg<br />

again after its successful première<br />

tour in 2012. Further fairground<br />

novelties will be the<br />

Funhouse “Freddy’s Company”<br />

from Hofmann-Jehn, the<br />

“Beach-Jumper” from Wegener,<br />

and the “Devil-Dance”<br />

from Welte. The track attraction<br />

sector will be represented<br />

by the “Haunted Mansion”<br />

from Hinzen providing a creepy<br />

atmosphere, Dark Coaster<br />

“Black Hole” from Schierenbeck,<br />

the richly curved “Katz &<br />

Maus” construction from Klünder,<br />

the large “Auf Manitus<br />

Spuren” Water Ride from Heitmann-Schneider,<br />

and the<br />

“Bayern Rutsch'n” from Schierenbeck.<br />

Moreover, the round<br />

rides “Jaguar-Express” from<br />

Konny Ahrend, the “Wellenflug” from Blume, the<br />

double storey horse carousel “Venetian Carousel” from<br />

Langenberg, the “Big Monster” from Krameyer, and<br />

the ageless “Break Dance” from Welte will provide<br />

round ride fun for young and old alike. The “Looping<br />

the Loop” Swing from Marquis will be a “nostalgic<br />

novelty” for Wolfsburg, and the huge Ferris Wheel from<br />

the Hannover Wilhelm firm with new and terrific lighting<br />

effects will tower over the selection of ride and Funhouse<br />

attractions.<br />

Naturally, the “Route 66” dodgem track from P. Vorlop<br />

will not be absent either. Moreover, younger visitors will<br />

be able to enjoy the kiddie rides, namely; “Flying Air<br />

Dance” from Wilhelm, “Fantasialand” from Berweke,<br />

“Teddyland” from Kucklack and the popular “Kinder-<br />

Barockflieger” from Urbigkeit. Furthermore, the successful<br />

and high-quality selection of concession stalls<br />

of all kinds and sectors will provide for a fair event of<br />

special quality at Allerpark.<br />

Thus, one can only hope that beautiful weather will<br />

bring the showmen and the organisers of the Wolfsburg<br />

Schützen and Volksfest 2013 high visitor numbers<br />

and matching turnover after the extremely long<br />

winter.<br />

Salzburg Dult<br />

Opening of the “Salzburg<br />

Dult 1975” at the exhibition<br />

centre in Liefering<br />

From 18 th to 26 th May, the popular Dult event will be<br />

held in Salzburg again. This year, a special<br />

anniversary will be celebrated; namely the Messezentrum<br />

Salzburg being the venue for the 40 th time.<br />

Apart from markets providing everyday necessities to<br />

Salzburg residents, two traditional fairs, where also<br />

non-resident marketers sold their goods, were held in<br />

the ancient city of Salzburg.<br />

On these historic occasions the Salzburg residents<br />

were able to buy imported goods at favourable prices.<br />

Moreover, the combination in those early years of markets<br />

and fairs with showmen, tightrope artists, jugglers,<br />

bear trainers and puppeteers, as well as tooth pullers<br />

and quack doctors, offered a popular variety.<br />

The autumn Dult, which lives on in “Rupertikirtag”<br />

these days, had its roots in the feast of St. Rupert<br />

celebrated on 24 th September, and was first documented<br />

in 1331. “Tult” was the original term for the<br />

“feast of a Saint”, and its meaning changed into fair or<br />

Volksfest over the course of time. From the 14 th century<br />

on a second fair was held in the Lenten season,<br />

around the day of St. Rupert’s death on 27 th March. This<br />

spring Dult was steadily moved to the warmer season<br />

in the following centuries, evolving into the traditional<br />

“Pfingstdult”.<br />

While the fairgrounds initially spread all around the<br />

cathedral, they were extended to the Alten Markt and<br />

other squares in the medieval city centre later on. In<br />

1856, the Dult was moved to Mirabellplatz before making<br />

its final move to the Neustadt district, and eventually<br />

ceased in 1896 with large Volksfest events taking<br />

its place. In 1924, the Dult was revived for two days as<br />

a large trade exhibition including a Volksfest event and<br />

folklore events on the area of today’s Großes Festspielhaus,<br />

but thereafter it was no longer possible to<br />

stage a Dult fairground in this location due to major<br />

building operations in the Festspiel district.<br />

After the Second World War, the Dult was reopened,<br />

being first held in the Volksgarten (Franz-Josef-<strong>Park</strong>)<br />

and from 1957 in Baron-Schwarz-<strong>Park</strong> in Itzling. Apart<br />

from the entertainment industry, firms presenting sales<br />

exhibitions and new products were also represented<br />

at both the Pentecost Dult and the Autumn Dult. The<br />

last Pentecost Dult in Schwarzpark was held in 1969<br />

and enticed 35,000 visitors.<br />

After a five-year break, the Dult was revived by the<br />

“Salzburg Dult” Association in the new exhibition<br />

centre at Glanspitz in Salzburg-Liefering during the<br />

Pentecost period in 1974, with the 50 th anniversary<br />

since the resurrection of the Dult in 1924. As a result,<br />

the 40 th Dult will be celebrated at the Salzburg Messezentrum<br />

this year. The major attractions to be presented<br />

will be given in the "Preview" section in this issue.<br />

Anzeigenschluss für das Juniheft ist Freitag, 10. Mai


SCHRIESHEIM<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Norman Vogt<br />

Warm spring weather<br />

attracted many visitors to the<br />

fairground<br />

After the winter is before the winter! And what<br />

is in between? For a couple of days it was<br />

spring in the midst of climactic confusion, at<br />

least at Bergstraße and on the very day the<br />

region’s first spring festival was held this year.<br />

Yet punctually for the opening day of the 434 th<br />

Mathaisemarkt (1 st to 10 th March), visitors were<br />

able to enjoy sunshine and spring temperatures<br />

(at least by day) on the fairground at the foot<br />

of the Strahlenburg Castle.<br />

The spring weather lasted up until the last opening<br />

day, whereas winter was back one day later,<br />

bringing an end to the short spring interlude.<br />

Nonetheless, the Mathaisemarkt was a great<br />

success as far as visitor numbers and turnover<br />

were concerned. Although there were a couple of<br />

showman operations that, as usual, didn't fare too<br />

well, most of the participants were satisfied with<br />

their financial results at the end of the event. According<br />

to a regional newspaper, visitor numbers in<br />

Schriesheim matched those of previous years.<br />

This may well have been true, as the fairground<br />

was quite crowded on peak days and there was<br />

barely any room left to move on the fairground at<br />

peak times. On Friday evening alone, the fire<br />

brigade registered 12,000 guests – in a town with<br />

only 15,000 residents! Among the highlights of the<br />

event there were, among other spectacles, a festival<br />

procession, a boxing event, and a marching<br />

band procession on the second opening Sunday,<br />

as well as a demonstration of mid-sized firms,<br />

where the Saarland Prime Minister Annegret<br />

Kamp-Karrenbauer gave a not particularly exhilarating<br />

speech. Moreover, the total of 110,000 visitors<br />

were also offered a varied fairground with as<br />

many as four novelties vying to entice the public;<br />

namely Oberschelp’s “High Impress”, Zinnecker’s<br />

“Der Burner”, Kaiser’s “Twister” coaster, and Hartmann’s<br />

“Krumm & Schiefbau”. They were joined<br />

by classic rides such as the “Jupiter” Ferris Wheel<br />

(Göbel), the “Number One” dodgem track (Haas),<br />

and the “Südseewellen” (Barth). Various kiddie<br />

rides rounded off the selection of attractions.<br />

Prior to the event, there were already many reports<br />

about the new beer tent built up on Bergstraße<br />

for the first time. The front of the new tent<br />

needs some getting used to though, as it rather<br />

more resembled a trade fair tent than a festive<br />

beer tent. The menu in the tent - operated by Hans<br />

Peter Küffner - was fantastic however, offering different<br />

tasty dishes and delicious wines. On the<br />

final day, the 434 th Schriesheim Mathaisemarkt<br />

was closed with a magnificent fireworks display at<br />

9 p.m. ■<br />

BRUCHSAL<br />

Text & Photos: Norman Vogt<br />

It was “Schneeflöckchen, Weißröckchen”, or<br />

to put it another way, “snowflakes” at this<br />

year’s Bruchsal Frühjahrsmarkt from 16 th to<br />

24 th March, which suffered from wintry temperatures.<br />

The winter weather not only affected<br />

visitor attendance, but also the showmen’s<br />

revenues. The poor weather was not the only<br />

problem on the showmen’s mind, as this year’s<br />

Frühjahrsmarkt may well have been the last<br />

spring event on the Messplatz.<br />

Due to urban development, the event is to be relocated<br />

to a new ‘home’, if a suitable one can be<br />

found. City authorities are currently searching for<br />

an adequate replacement site, and the local<br />

council will make a decision before long.<br />

Sven Wipper, Chairman of the BranchenBund-<br />

Bruchsal, liaised with the showmen and wants to<br />

campaign for the continuation of the Frühjahrsmarkt<br />

on the Messplatz, with a view to the successful<br />

liaison between the fair event and the<br />

open shopping Sunday. Currently, there is nothing<br />

left to do but wait for the pending decision.<br />

As regards to ride attractions, the Frühjahrsmarkt<br />

once again benefited from the Schriesheim Mathaisemarkt<br />

that ended on the previous Sunday, in<br />

that a number of operations moved on from<br />

Bergstraße to Bruchsal. From the ample choice of<br />

33 different attractions, fairground director Klaus<br />

Lippolt and Susanne Filder, Chairperson of the<br />

Karlsruhe Showman Association, succeeded in<br />

putting together an appealing fairground. With<br />

Kaiser’s “Twister”, a family coaster was once<br />

again presented after a break of many years. Another<br />

highlight for Bruchsal was Oberschelp’s<br />

“High Impress”. The Ferris Wheel from Göbel,<br />

Massel’s “Tropical Trip”, the “Musik Express 3000”<br />

(Spangenberger), the “Number One” dodgem<br />

track (Haas), the “Crazy Town”, and Göbel’s<br />

Slide rounded off the entertainment contingent.<br />

Moreover, younger visitors enjoyed a number of<br />

kiddie rides. The Family Day on Wednesday, the<br />

open shopping Sunday, as well as the fireworks<br />

display on Friday were once again the highlights<br />

of the event.<br />

An aerial view of the Send<br />

The participants at the Frühjahrssend in Münster (2 nd<br />

to 10 th March) had certainly expected more from the<br />

very start and into the new fairground season. The<br />

first large fair event in North-Rhine Westphalia was<br />

characterised by noticeably decreased visitor numbers<br />

and the entailing losses in turnover. The showmen<br />

on Schlossplatz found themselves out in the<br />

cold - in the literal sense of the phrase. Due to<br />

Easter being early, it was actually still winter in the<br />

calendar when this year’s Send event began. And<br />

winter displayed its full force once again, especially<br />

on the second opening weekend.<br />

With occasional sunshine and temperatures in the<br />

single-digit range, business was still quite good. The first<br />

three weekdays were the first days of spring, and warm<br />

temperatures made for a promising start. Considering<br />

the relatively fine weather, visitor numbers were nonetheless<br />

too low to bring about better results. Even the<br />

reintroduced Family Day on Thursday let down the showmen.<br />

It was certainly a mistake to hold no Family Days<br />

last year, as it will now take some time for visitors to accept<br />

this special action again. On the second weekend,<br />

winter returned with freezing temperatures and snowfall.<br />

The fireworks display on Friday turned out to be a disappointment,<br />

as the Schlossplatz was crowded only for<br />

a short time; it was simply too cold for the visitors.<br />

The occupancy was essentially very good, yet a crowdpulling<br />

novelty was disappointingly missing at the Send,<br />

and the layout of the fairground was somewhat lacking<br />

a clearly defined course. The Münster city authorities<br />

and the showmen alike do not think too much significance<br />

should be attached to the bad start into the new<br />

season. Frost, snow, and ice simply do not whet the appetite<br />

for a visit to the fairground. Nevertheless, there<br />

are reasons to give thought to future Send events. This<br />

year, the largest change will be the extension of the<br />

Autumn Send to nine opening days, limited to a twoyear<br />

trial period. One can only hope that the plans will<br />

work out for the showmen. True, the Send is well-attended,<br />

especially at the weekends, and it is more lucrative<br />

for large ride attractions to be set up for nine, rather than<br />

five opening days. However, it is a truism that extensions<br />

have not proven particularly successful very<br />

often. Currently, a study on the future of the Send is<br />

being drawn up in cooperation with the Münster Technical<br />

College, which includes representative surveys.<br />

The result of this study will be published after the<br />

Autumn Send.<br />

Currently, a reorganisation of the Summer Send is already<br />

being discussed. This may well mean that the<br />

event will have to do without large rides. The number of<br />

gastronomic operations, music acts and stages is to be<br />

increased, and these will replace the roller coaster and<br />

the Ferris Wheel. All this is in accordance with the event<br />

motto: “no longer a fair event, but city festival”.<br />

It remains to be seen if this is the right course to be taking.<br />

The three Send events are tantamount to three major<br />

fair events a year. Basically, this should not be changed,<br />

and there are sufficient possibilities with regard to promoting<br />

the event and in laying out the Schlossplatz to<br />

clearly improve the standing of the Send.<br />

SOLINGEN<br />

Text & Photo:<br />

True to the motto “Leise rieselt<br />

der Schnee”, or “Silently falls<br />

the snow”, the Solingen Frühjahrskirmes<br />

(15 th to 24 th March)<br />

took place under decidedly<br />

adverse weather conditions.<br />

Freezing temperatures, ice and<br />

snow affected the visitor numbers<br />

and results at the first<br />

major fair event in the Bergisches<br />

Land region. Indeed,<br />

due to continuous snowfall,<br />

even the usually well-attended<br />

Family Day was a dead loss.<br />

The top attraction “Pirates Adventure”<br />

had been placed,<br />

most effectively, in the entrance area of the appealingly<br />

laid out fairground. The Musik Express<br />

was relocated from its traditional site towards the<br />

centre of the fairground, which certainly enhanced<br />

the overall fairground image. Built up all<br />

around the “Drive in” dodgem track were the “Sky-<br />

Trip”, a Simulator, the “Breakdance” and the<br />

“Heartbreaker”. A number of kiddie rides, sales<br />

and games booths, as well as a shooting gallery,<br />

rounded off the selection of fairground attractions.<br />

There was also interesting news from the Showman<br />

Association; in Solingen, it seems, another<br />

large fairground is being sought to hold a further<br />

fair event in summer or autumn.<br />

■<br />

RECKLINGHAUSEN<br />

Text & Photos: Michael Petersen<br />

Light and shadow characterised this year’s Palmkirmes<br />

(15 th to 24 th March) in the city belonging to<br />

the Münster district, which numbers among the<br />

top events in North-Rhine Westphalia, boasting<br />

some 1 million visitors every year.<br />

Approaching the fairground in the direction of the<br />

Saatbruch area, one could see numerous large and<br />

small posters, some of them also advertising the<br />

Palmkirmes, which were almost completely hidden<br />

away by the massive poster advertising campaign for<br />

the Circus Roncalli making a concurrent appearance.<br />

The circus also covered the advertising spaces that<br />

usually featured the Palmkirmes posters. Despite<br />

songs sung by the Chairman of the Showman Association,<br />

the old-fashioned-style opening ceremony,<br />

poorly-attended this time, was not particularly convincing.<br />

Far and away the most positive observation<br />

would be perfect catering provided by Bruno Dreßen<br />

in his travelling gastronomic operation “Dorfwirt”.<br />

This year, the Palmkirmes scored well with a variety<br />

of Recklinghausen premières and even two German<br />

ones. Two of the attractive rides presented were the<br />

“Cobra” coaster and “The Beast” swing. While the<br />

“Cobra” coaster was perfectly placed on the novelty<br />

site at the Vestlandhalle, “The Beast” was unable to<br />

present its striking appearance to its very best, built<br />

up at a side entrance. The “Booster Maxxx G4” Propeller<br />

was also intelligently placed and livened up the<br />

section at the southern entrance. While the layout of<br />

the fairground was quite satisfying at a first glance, a<br />

closer look revealed some drawbacks. Unattractive<br />

and relatively large thoroughfares for ambulances affected<br />

the atmosphere in a number of fairground<br />

47


sections, leading to the question as to whether or not<br />

thoroughfares more than 10 metres wide are really<br />

necessary. The large gaps they left could be seen<br />

next to the “Cobra”, the “Diamond” dodgem track, the<br />

“Amazonas”, and in the southern entrance area.<br />

These sections could have been easily livened up by<br />

a couple of colourful canvasses. Unfortunately however,<br />

it looked very ugly the way it was.<br />

The Palmkirmes provided an even uglier image on<br />

the final opening day, with preparations being exaggerated<br />

at several attractions and blending almost<br />

seamlessly into dismantling. This behaviour is<br />

damaging to the image of the entire showman industry.<br />

Due to ice and snow, especially on the strongturnover<br />

Family Day, results fell far short of the expectations<br />

this year. But that is not all; the opening<br />

fireworks display from a Berlin pyrotechnic firm did<br />

not work out as planned, with burning and glowing<br />

parts falling from the sky, damaging tarpaulins at a<br />

number of showman attractions, and causing significant<br />

property damage. Fortunately, nobody was<br />

injured.<br />

BRAUNSCHWEIG<br />

Text & Photos: Uwe Holzmann<br />

Easter being early in the year, the Frühjahrsmesse<br />

on the Braunschweig Schützen-fairground was<br />

held at an unusually premature time (8 th to 24 th<br />

March). Prior to the event, fairground manager<br />

Gaby Grandt from the Braunschweig Schützen, explained<br />

that this was the reason why the showmen<br />

had started earlier than usual. This also provided<br />

for the possibility to attract spectacular new rides<br />

to the Hamburger Straße. The disadvantage<br />

though was that the early date also entailed some<br />

risks, and indeed the frost and icy conditions proved<br />

to be of no use to anybody, and quite catastrophic<br />

to all participants.<br />

The organiser, Frank Berweke was able to contract<br />

every type of novelty and attraction, such as the<br />

“Flash” from Weber, “Tornado” from Zinnecker, the<br />

“Magic House” from Kutschenbauer and the freshly<br />

renovated “Rock & Roller Coaster” from Vorlop. The<br />

ride contingent on the very well laid-out fairground<br />

was complemented by the “Jaguar-Express” from<br />

Ahrend, the “Jamba Laya” from Stange, the “Break<br />

Dancer No.1” from Franzelius, “Top Spin 2” from<br />

Scheele, the “Walk of Fame” labyrinth from Zinnecker<br />

and the dodgem track from Peter Vorlop. The younger<br />

visitors were able to enjoy the “Fantasialand” from<br />

Berweke, the “Piratenrutsche” from Schulze, the “Top<br />

Drive No.1” from Ahrend, a Swing Boat from Reins, the<br />

“Kindertraum” from Slawik, and a Bungee-Trampoline.<br />

Naturally, visitors also encountered a high number of<br />

speciality operations, beverage outlets and confectionery<br />

stalls, providing them with food and drink, as<br />

well as classic concession stalls such as a shooting<br />

gallery, a Continental pick stand, a hook-a-duck, a<br />

ball-throwing stall, or the popular pick up trolleys with<br />

fantastic prizes.<br />

Unfortunately, the event not only suffered from the<br />

much-dreaded frost, but worse still enduring freezing<br />

temperatures reaching as low as minus 10 °C, not to<br />

mention repeated fresh snowfalls, icy patches due to<br />

burst or frozen water pipes, and generally dismal winter<br />

weather. All this gave rise to disastrous results.<br />

Those fair-goers coming to the fairground during the<br />

few opening days that were blessed with a little sunshine<br />

in the afternoon – such as the final Sunday –<br />

could not make up for the earlier poor results that left<br />

the showmen depressed.<br />

What a pity! Considering the conspicuous effort made<br />

by all participants, it could have been a first-rate Frühjahrsmesse,<br />

but finally all that was left was a prevailing<br />

hope that spring would 'spring' and better Easter<br />

venues, and those further into the year would prove<br />

more successful.<br />

SOUTHAMPTON (GB)<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Marcus Gaines<br />

Southampton is home to the south coast of<br />

England's largest fair. Situated on The Common,<br />

an area of park land on the outskirts of<br />

Southampton, the Easter fair ran from the 28 th<br />

March to the 7 th April.<br />

The lessees, B Cole & Sons, always ensure a<br />

good selection of rides is on offer and 2013 was<br />

no different. Among the big attractions at the fair<br />

were “Oxygen” Booster (Edward Danter), “Midnight<br />

Express” Matterhorn (George Brewer Jnr.),<br />

“Orbiter” (John Wall Jnr.) “Superbowl” (Craig<br />

Danter) and “Tagada” (Guy & John Evans). The<br />

large number of novelties was joined by the<br />

usual collection of British favourites including a<br />

Waltzer (Robert Cole), “Screamer” Miami<br />

(Robert Cole), “Sizzler” Twist (Robert Cole) and<br />

“Meteor” Round Up (John Searle) plus two Ghost<br />

Trains and three Fun Houses.<br />

Families with kids were very well catered for with<br />

many inflatable and juvenile rides including a<br />

junior Waltzer and a “Runaway Train” kiddie<br />

coaster (Charles Ive).<br />

Among the strong line up of rides there were a<br />

couple of repetitions: two Superstars from John<br />

Wall Jnr. and Leigh Danter, and two sets of Bumper<br />

Cars from William Cole and John Wall Snr.<br />

Fortunately the fair is laid out in a straight line<br />

with only a couple of rides off the central path,<br />

with the Superstars being positioned at opposite<br />

ends of the fair.<br />

Both Thursday's of the fair were crazy price day<br />

with all rides costing just £1 (€1.20). Despite this<br />

promotion starting the fair, some showmen were<br />

disappointed by the first few days. One showman<br />

claimed that there were more people in attendance<br />

on the Easter Sunday than the previous<br />

three days combined. Even then the Easter Sunday<br />

didn't seem that busy, with rides operating<br />

with only a handful of riders at a time. Despite<br />

plenty of sunshine, the unseasonably freezing<br />

cold weather appeared to have put off many<br />

families, as the Easter weekend was the coldest<br />

in the UK since records began.<br />

A sign of how quiet the fair was, despite the short<br />

opening hours of 2 p.m. to 9 p.m., on several<br />

nights a number of rides had closed and others<br />

were winding down already at by 8 p.m. Even on<br />

the second crazy price Thursday, many showmen<br />

couldn't justify the cost of keeping going<br />

until 9 p.m. as snow showers seemingly kept<br />

away the crowds.<br />

The Easter Fair is held in<br />

“The Common” <strong>Park</strong><br />

Leigh Danter’s<br />

“Superstar” and Edward<br />

Danter’s “Oxygen” Booster<br />

Leigh Danter’s “Superstar”, Cole’s Waltzer, Craig<br />

Danter’s “Superbowl”, Guy & John Evan’s “Tagada”,<br />

George Brewer’s “Midnight Express”, John<br />

Wall’s “Orbiter”, Charles Ive’s “Runaway Train”<br />

The closing weekend saw the weather improve<br />

greatly with much higher temperatures and<br />

sunny skies, and happily the fairground was<br />

much busier, but still the rides were running far<br />

from full capacity.<br />

Reflecting on the start of the new season one<br />

showman said it was a shame the fair isn't closer<br />

to the city centre as it would help with attendance<br />

and create a much better atmosphere. After a<br />

terrible 2012 he hoped that the poor first few<br />

days of the main season weren't a sign of another<br />

bad year ahead.<br />

NOSTALGIA<br />

The Bothmann ride<br />

from Hermann Fellerhoff<br />

The Hermann Fellerhoff family<br />

is the owner of three nostalgic<br />

kiddie carousels, largely<br />

preserved in their original<br />

condition. As a general rule<br />

they are built up only once a<br />

year; namely at the Düsseldorf<br />

Christmas Markets on<br />

the Rathausplatz, Schadowstraße,<br />

and the Gustav-<br />

Gründgens-Platz.<br />

Nostalgia Carousels<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Michael Petersen<br />

VDuring the pre-Christmas season, a Galloper<br />

built by the Gotha Karussellfabrik Fritz Bothmann,<br />

makes its rounds in front of the Düsseldorf<br />

city hall. In 2004, Hermann Fellerhoff purchased<br />

this carousel, which was preserved almost in its original<br />

condition, from a private individual from the<br />

Cologne region. The nostalgic 16-section horse<br />

carousel features 25 ride accessories, including a<br />

rotating gondola, boats and a sleigh, in addition to<br />

the classic carousel horses, with the two pigs, as<br />

well as the somewhat rare giant elephant still being<br />

highly popular with the passengers. According to<br />

the owner, the ceilings and the funnel still feature<br />

their first oil paint coating. Also interesting is the<br />

this show piece made a one-time guest appearance<br />

at the anniversary fair in Werne, in addition<br />

to its appearance at the Christmas Market.<br />

Fellerhoff’s Hennecke carousel was built up at the<br />

Christmas Market on the Düsseldorf Schadowstraße.<br />

The classic ride with ground measurements<br />

of 3.80 metres was built in 1942, and has been under<br />

the ownership of the family ever since. The<br />

young visitors could enjoy a total of nine different<br />

mounts.<br />

At the Christmas Market on Gustav-Gründgens-<br />

Platz in Düsseldorf, Hermann Fellerhoff presented<br />

a more than 100-year-old, 14-section horse<br />

carousel. The name of its builder remains lost to ob-<br />

GASTRONOMY<br />

ZUM LEUCHTTURM<br />

Dieter Schmidt’s beverage<br />

attraction “Zum Leuchtturm”<br />

The rolling “Leuchtturm”<br />

Text & Photos: Kai Morawetz<br />

The beverage attraction “Zum<br />

Leuchtturm” from Dieter<br />

Schmidt from Grabow (Mecklenburg)<br />

was built for the Meinecke<br />

showman enterprise from Lower<br />

Saxony by the Friesland-based<br />

Fahrzeugbau Ellers firm in Altjürden in 1994.<br />

Later on, the attraction was taken over by the Schuhmann<br />

firm from Rostock, which toured it for one year<br />

before selling it to showman Dieter Schmidt from<br />

Grabow. After the takeover, the Schmidt family transformed<br />

the unique beverage attraction with a maritime<br />

theme into a small showpiece, featuring many decorative<br />

elements. A number of bar tables, seating, and<br />

a canopied beach chair provide a seaside feeling and<br />

invite visitors to linger and enjoy. The roof protrudes<br />

far above the seats at the counter, offering<br />

sufficient protection from rain. Depending<br />

on available space, the "Zum Leuchtturm”<br />

attraction can be built up as a side stall with<br />

or without a backflash in a centre row. The<br />

cosy beer garden can also be adapted to the<br />

available area. The attraction is equipped with<br />

a high-performance refrigerated counter and<br />

storage facility. The drinks menu ranges from<br />

non-alcoholic beverages, draught beer, wine, champagne<br />

and cocktails, to various coffee specialities. The<br />

range is supplemented by different types of homemade<br />

cold punch. After sundown, the signal light from<br />

the lighthouse on the roof of the attraction is visible<br />

from a considerable distance. The Schmidt family<br />

tours this maritime beverage attraction mainly through<br />

Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, but also through<br />

Brandenburg and Saxony-Anhalt. Last year, "Zum<br />

Leuchtturm” was presented for the first time at the Harbour<br />

Birthday Festival in Hamburg. Due to the wellthought-out<br />

construction of the trailer, building up and<br />

dismantling the beverage attraction requires only a<br />

couple of hours; only the lighthouse is dismantled and<br />

secured for transportation. The attraction has ground<br />

measurements of 7 x 8 metres and electrical requirements<br />

of about 12 kW. In addition to the "Zum Leuchtturm”,<br />

Dieter Schmidt also operates a kiddie railway<br />

and a restaurant tent.<br />

depth of 2.50 metres, was<br />

built by the Pfaff firm. The interior<br />

consists of high-quality<br />

coffee machines that Dettinger hunted down in Italy,<br />

where he also fortuitously found his coffee supplier. The<br />

high-quality coffee, sporting the Hardy label, comes<br />

from a small roasting house. Apart from coffee specialities<br />

such as the familiar Cappuccino, Latte Macchiato,<br />

Espresso, Mocha, and the classic Café Crema,<br />

the menu at the "Café Alexa” also includes specialities<br />

such as Caramellita or Vanilla, an espresso with milk<br />

and syrup. By the way, the name "Café Alexa” refers to<br />

the name of his wife, Alexandra Dettinger. The "Café<br />

Alexa” was presented at, among other venues, the Bietigheim<br />

Pferdemarkt, the Spring Festival in Stuttgart,<br />

and at the Wurstmarkt in Bad Dürkheim.<br />

Hearts Beat Faster at the Historic Jahrmarkt<br />

When the first historic Jahrmarkt opened its<br />

gates at the Bochum Jahrhunderthalle six years<br />

ago, the simultaneous signal also fell for a row<br />

of successful events, which entices tens of thousands<br />

of fairground fans to the old industrial<br />

buildings every year. Also attending at the invitation<br />

of ESU-President Albert Ritter were showman<br />

colleagues from Ireland and Portugal, at<br />

the beginning of March 2013.<br />

Whether a Caterpillar Ride from the 1920s, the Ferris<br />

Wheel from the turn of the century, or a horse carousel<br />

built in 1878 – the presidium members of the<br />

Portuguese Showman Association Associação Portuguesa<br />

de Empresas de Diversão, and the Irish<br />

Showman Association, the Irish Showmen’s Guild,<br />

were enthralled by the unique choice of historic<br />

fairground attractions. Together with President Rit-<br />

ter, they inspected<br />

carousels, caravans,<br />

traction engines<br />

and mechanical<br />

Baroque concert<br />

organs. The fact that<br />

the Volksfests and<br />

fairgrounds are a<br />

matter of the heart<br />

for showmen need<br />

not be especially<br />

mentioned. However<br />

it was noticed<br />

that the hearts of<br />

the guests from Portugal and Ireland beat faster<br />

during the tour through the "Volksfest-Museum<br />

auf Zeit".<br />

ESU-Solidarity with Portugal's Showmen<br />

Presidium meets in Antwerp<br />

On the 17th March 2013, the Presidium of the<br />

European Showman Union met up in the Belgian<br />

Volksfest city of Antwerp to discuss current association<br />

themes. Taking part in the meeting<br />

were, in addition to President Albert Ritter, also<br />

Vice President Nicole Vermolen and Franck Delforge,<br />

as well as General Secretary Steve Severeyns.<br />

Detailed discussions were undertaken by<br />

the presidium about help for Portuguese showman<br />

colleagues, who, since the beginning of the<br />

year, have undertaken countless protest actions<br />

against the increase of the reduced VAT rate.<br />

President Ritter declared that there would be no<br />

stone left unturned on the part of the ESU to<br />

achieve the withdrawal of the tax measures in question.<br />

The ESU has regular contact with the Portuguese<br />

Showman Association Associação Portuguesa<br />

de Empresas de Diversão (APED), and its President<br />

Luís Paulo Fernandes.<br />

In addition to the tax burden for the showman industry,<br />

discussions also turned to the theme<br />

environmental zones, another main point at the<br />

presidium meeting in Antwerp. The situation in individual<br />

member countries was discussed in depth<br />

by the presidium, and affirmed the demands of the<br />

ESU for an exemption of a driving ban on showman<br />

vehicles. The discussions about the environmental<br />

Portugal's showmen fight against the tax<br />

increase<br />

Poto: ESU<br />

zones included the current transport problems of<br />

Irish showman colleagues.<br />

Following the decision of the German Government<br />

to enter into a UNESCO-agreement in December<br />

2012 in order to retain immaterial cultural assets, it<br />

meant for the ESU according to President Ritter "to<br />

now bundle together all our strength to ensure the<br />

recording of the traditional European Volksfests as<br />

immaterial cultural asset in World Cultural Heritage."<br />

"The European Volksfests have long fulfilled<br />

the criteria for acceptance as they are a unique and<br />

unusual witness to a centuries old cultural tradition",<br />

declared the ESU-President.<br />

MODEL CONSTRUCTION<br />

WILDE MAUS<br />

Stefan Schulmerich from Dachau<br />

is 46 years old and works as an<br />

accountant. Ever since he can<br />

remember, the colourful world of<br />

fairgrounds has always been,<br />

and is still, his passion. As a<br />

young boy he watched the build<br />

up of the Dachau Volksfest for<br />

days. At the age of 15, he built his<br />

first fairground models, and later<br />

on he made both his love for fairgrounds<br />

and model construction<br />

his hobby.<br />

Text:<br />

Rolf Orschel<br />

Photos: Stefan Schulmerich<br />

The paybox area designed<br />

according to the builder’s ideas<br />

– The tracks were made from<br />

H0-scale model railway flexible<br />

tracks - The station platform<br />

can be removed for repair<br />

In 1987, Stefan Schulmerich began to build 1:50<br />

scale fairground models. Initially, he built<br />

models of a number of ride and funhouse attractions<br />

as well as a couple of concession stalls.<br />

Building a showman camping trailer, he gained<br />

his first experiences in ride manufacturing.<br />

Eleven years ago, he began to realize his longstanding<br />

and ambitious wish to build a true-tooriginal<br />

fully functional model of a “Wilde Maus”<br />

coaster. “Templates” for the building of the<br />

model were a number of photos from the<br />

coasters of the showman enterprises Münch and<br />

Kinzler. In addition, the model builder drew his<br />

own scale drafts.<br />

The model has ground measurements of 90 x 45<br />

centimetres, and the maximum height of the<br />

track is 42 centimetres. The base was made of<br />

box-sectioned profile sections and brass tubes.<br />

For the tracks he used flexible tracks from a H0-<br />

scale model railway. While the tight curves were<br />

carefully bent without any gauge, the radii for the<br />

ascents and drops were adapted with a suitable<br />

glass bottle serving as a gauge. Next, the sleepers<br />

of the flexible tracks were fixed with instant<br />

glue at a spacing of 1.5 cm. While the trusses<br />

are made of rectangular tube and brass sections,<br />

the lift, paybox case and station were<br />

made of metal sheeting. The lettering consists of<br />

polystyrene boards and cardboard. The ladders<br />

and handrails were glued together from steel<br />

wire, and the mice and flower pots were formed<br />

from a modelling compound. For the chassis of<br />

all three gondolas, Stefan Schulmerich used<br />

bogies from H0-scale freight wagons, to which<br />

the painted bubbles made of cardboard were<br />

glued. Underneath the gondola floors there is a<br />

lug, onto which the bolting of the chain drive is<br />

latched. Along the drive chain there are always<br />

two bolts set at three equal distances. While the<br />

first bolt latches onto the lug underneath the gon-<br />

60


dola, the second one serves as the roll-back protection<br />

behind the second axle of the chassis.<br />

Building and adjusting the brakes was a test of<br />

the builder’s patience. After many a trial, simple<br />

cardboard strips glued on and set between the<br />

sleepers turned out to be the best solution.<br />

“Super glue” was liberally applied to the cardboard<br />

strips as “brake pads”. Next, the cardboard<br />

strips were painted with vehicle paint, so that<br />

they could be perfectly fitted into the curve radii<br />

and carefully decelerate the gondolas. The mice<br />

were formed from modelling compound, flamehardened<br />

and painted. Small model railway<br />

trees were glued into the flower pots made of<br />

modelling clay. As all the single components<br />

were glued with model construction and “Super<br />

glue”, the model cannot be dismantled. For the<br />

lighting, a total of 2,850 light diodes with a diameter<br />

of 2 and 3 mm were installed. The electronic<br />

controls for the running light and the ride<br />

programme were built by a friendly electronics<br />

engineer. To prevent the gondolas from colliding<br />

in the station, sensors were fixed to the lift and<br />

tiny magnets to the gondolas. Driving past, the<br />

magnets trigger the sensor contacts, which in<br />

turn open or close a barrier in front of the station<br />

entrance. Finally, standard Preiser figures were<br />

partly changed in accordance with a photo in the<br />

Kirmes & <strong>Park</strong> Revue, newly painted and provided<br />

with real hair. After a construction time of 10<br />

years, Stefan Schulmerich was able to open his<br />

largest and most ambitious fairground model so<br />

far, last year. In the meantime, he began to build<br />

another concession stall, and there are plans to<br />

build the vehicle fleet for the “Wilde Maus” in the<br />

near future.<br />

■<br />

The figures were changed according to a<br />

photo in the Kirmes & <strong>Park</strong> Revue – The handrails<br />

were self-made, bent from steel wire<br />

The railings are made of<br />

aluminium weave from the<br />

model railway – The lettering of<br />

the name sign is modelled on<br />

the original – The three chaises<br />

are occupied by redesigned<br />

Preiser figures – The chaises<br />

are made from H0-scale model<br />

railway bogies and painted<br />

cardboard<br />

The mice formed of<br />

modelling compound were<br />

hardened in the oven


COASTER<br />

Lateral banking at up<br />

to 153°, two inversions and<br />

an 81° steep drop are unique<br />

worldwide on a wooden<br />

coaster<br />

It’s not only the European but<br />

also the North American theme<br />

park industry that moaned at the<br />

onset of winter. So how good it<br />

was that the new wooden coaster<br />

at Silver Dollar City in the<br />

US State of Missouri was mostly<br />

completed already by autumn<br />

2012. As a result, the spectacular<br />

new attraction could already<br />

go into its soft-opening-phase<br />

in the middle of March, before its<br />

official opening took place on<br />

the 13 th of April.<br />

The photos down show<br />

the successful theming<br />

Outlaw Run<br />

Six Flags Over Texas, by fitting a new track<br />

bed of steel (see KPR 4/2012). By contrast<br />

“Outlaw Run” is the first attraction that<br />

RMC has newly constructed from scratch.<br />

And this construction really is something,<br />

During the test period, operation had to be abandoned<br />

for a number of days due to the weather coaster category: the world’s steepest drop, the<br />

and offers a number of singularities in the wooden<br />

being so icy. The new attraction from RMC (Rocky only attraction at the moment with inversions, and<br />

Mountain Construction) on the other hand ran without<br />

any problems – even though it is the first work In comparison to the “New Texas Giant”, there are<br />

further along, very unusual ride figures.<br />

from the firm from Idaho. Apart from the fact that no massive steel tracks out of I-profiles but the socalled<br />

Topper Tracks of steel are held together by<br />

RMC has been established in the North American<br />

amusement industry since already 2001, the company<br />

was more involved in the build up and main-<br />

of a wooden coaster or about a hybrid coaster is an<br />

iron “pliers”. However whether or not one can speak<br />

tenance of coasters and other ride constructions for open question. Absolutely certain however is that<br />

other manufacturers, and particularly contracts the 895 metre long result has turned out to be an<br />

from the “home park” Silverwood Theme <strong>Park</strong> in exciting, intensive and different type of ride experience<br />

without trimbrakes. Without a doubt, the newly<br />

Idaho. It was first in 2011 that the company could<br />

make its (own) name with the complete overworking<br />

of the ageing wooden coaster “Texas Giant” at der restraints are also a valuable<br />

developed trains with lap bars and without shoul-<br />

contribution.<br />

62


Tracks with considerable steel facing – three inch<br />

thick steel on 6-ply wooden tracks – wind their way<br />

over an impressive wooden construction, through<br />

hilly and thickly forested grounds in the back section<br />

of the park: an almost 33 metre high lift follows<br />

directly after the station. Having reached the top,<br />

the train angles over the highest point, without immediately<br />

dropping into the almost 50 metre<br />

depths. An effective but unfortunately far too rarely<br />

used pre-drop follows, which allows the train to race<br />

into the following almost vertical first drop energetically<br />

and with guaranteed airtime in all seats. This<br />

is followed by an element with 153° banking (a type<br />

of approaching but not completely executed “Revolution”),<br />

more airtime hills, near-ground curves, a<br />

parallel turn, a 90° steep left curve, and a right<br />

curve that is just as inclined with an orderly amount<br />

of “hang time”, before “Outlaw Run” offers its grand<br />

finale with two real inversions in the form of a<br />

corkscrew, also called “double barrel roll”.<br />

Ride Résumé<br />

Together with its also extremely successful<br />

theming, “Outlaw Run” is an unusual wooden<br />

coaster with a refreshingly different type of layout.<br />

Particularly remarkable is the fact that both an<br />

operator and a manufacturer have found a way to<br />

realize the vision of a functional Wooden Looping<br />

Coaster – despite (or perhaps because of?) the<br />

disasters that occured around the large construction<br />

“Son of Beast” at the American theme park<br />

Kings Island. “Outlaw Run” is only one-third as long<br />

as the earlier and last year demolished millennium<br />

attraction from RCCA. Due however to its new type<br />

of construction it will without a doubt have a much<br />

longer life cycle. And we have spoken about this<br />

with Fred Grubb, who together with his wife Susanne<br />

Dedmon founded the family firm Rocky<br />

Mountain Construction Company and with Brad<br />

Thomas, Senior Vice President of Silver Dollar City<br />

Attractions.<br />

Interview with Fred Grubb<br />

If it had been constructively and financially<br />

possible, would you have been able to save the<br />

highest wooden coaster in the world, the “Son<br />

of Beast”, by one of your methods?<br />

As for the Son of Beast we did not do a feasibility<br />

study to know if it could be saved.<br />

You have one of the most innovative coaster<br />

designers on board: Alan Schilke, who once developed<br />

the revolutionary 4 th Dimension Coaster<br />

for Arrow. Are similar trailblazing constructions<br />

to be expected from RMC in the future?<br />

Yes Alan is the designer and he is a great<br />

partner. We do have more ideas that are made<br />

possible by our track system.<br />

Is there another large project waiting at the<br />

starting block?<br />

Yes<br />

Are you concentrating on the North<br />

American market, or have you already cast an<br />

eye towards Europe and Asia?<br />

We are working with Vekoma to develop the<br />

European and Asian markets.<br />

Interview with Brad Thomas<br />

How did this unusual attraction come<br />

about? Did you contact a number of manufacturers<br />

for suggestions regarding a wooden Looping<br />

Coaster?<br />

We are constantly doing research with our<br />

current guests and our potential guests. We want<br />

to always understand how we can better meet our<br />

their ever-changing expectations. Our market<br />

research showed that a dynamic wood coaster<br />

would be a draw to our park.<br />

Branson is not an urban market, but a tourism community.<br />

Our biggest challenge is always to ensure<br />

our shows, festivals, rides and attractions are highly<br />

entertaining for a guest to travel several hours to<br />

visit us. Thus, our search began to find a unique<br />

wood coaster experience. And Rocky Mountain<br />

Construction Company created a concept that<br />

included the world’s steepest drop on a wood<br />

coaster, the 2 nd fastest wood coaster, as well as<br />

3 inversions.<br />

As it didn’t escape your notice, there<br />

were problems with the world’s first wooden<br />

looping coaster “Son of Beast” at Kings<br />

Island theme park since its opening in 2000,<br />

resulting in its dismantling last year. Why<br />

have you made the decision for a Lopping<br />

attraction from wood despite this fact?<br />

The three inversions on “Outlaw Run” are<br />

thrilling and unique; the design and technology<br />

64


are vastly different than previous inversions on<br />

wood coasters. The first inversion occurs almost<br />

immediately after the 162’ drop. This inversion<br />

features a 153 degree angle, literally taking riders’<br />

feet over their heads. The second and third inversions<br />

are at the end of the ride experience and<br />

occur with 2 back to back 360-degree barrel rolls.<br />

Rocky Mountain’s innovative approach to the track<br />

on top of the traditional wood structure allowed the<br />

unique features of “Outlaw Run” to become reality.<br />

In the case of “Son of Beast” many and<br />

sometimes serious changes had to be made –<br />

all without success. Do the possible pending<br />

maintenance costs not cause you concern?<br />

Rocky Mountain’s track design has actually<br />

been shown to save maintenance dollars as opposed<br />

to traditional wood coasters.<br />

The layout is simply breathtaking. Did the<br />

track layout suggestion come from RMC?<br />

“Outlaw Run’s” layout was designed by RMC,<br />

with modifications from our internal team.<br />

The theming and the choice of name of the<br />

new coaster are very successful. What came<br />

first: the theme idea or the desire for such an attraction?<br />

We actually made the decision to build a wood<br />

coaster, and as we began the search process for<br />

the manufacturer and design, we were simultaneously<br />

developing the storyline and name of the<br />

ride. We desired to build an amazing ride experience<br />

with a Western/stagecoach theme. In addition,<br />

we very much want to ensure that “Outlaw<br />

Run” encourages kids of today to aspire to be<br />

“good guys” in all they do. Our statement “the Good<br />

Guys always win” celebrates the lawmen of yesterday<br />

and today – but also is a strategic statement<br />

and passion to encourage kids to make the sound,<br />

and good choices today and for years to come. For<br />

our grand opening weekend, we actually found 10<br />

kids doing significant things in their communities.<br />

They received a trip to Silver Dollar City where they<br />

met and dined with law enforcement professionals.<br />

They of course concluded their time together with<br />

an action packed ride on “Outlaw Run” – just proving<br />

in fact that the good gyus really do win! ■<br />

COASTER<br />

Definite speedy drops<br />

and particularly a successful<br />

indoor area are the<br />

characteristics of this new<br />

coaster<br />

The two-headed feathered<br />

snake Quetzalcoatl has found<br />

new lodgings at the animal and<br />

theme park Bellewaerde, in the<br />

form of a Zierer coaster that<br />

leads visitors into a temple<br />

where the mighty god of the<br />

elements Huracan has been<br />

closed in.<br />

Text & Photos: Rik Engelen<br />

Photos show the station,<br />

two rooms in the Darkride section,<br />

and the ascent<br />

Huracan<br />

The park that opened in 1959 has been known<br />

for its lush surroundings, laid back atmosphere<br />

and a good mixture of rides and animal exhibits,<br />

but until now it has not been known for its<br />

coasters. Although the park is home to the world’s<br />

first, and still in great condition “Boomerang”<br />

coaster from Vekoma, as well as a large Zierer Tivoli<br />

coaster, it’s only now after 29 years that<br />

“Huracan” joins its coaster siblings as a custom<br />

made, themed, indoor-outdoor coaster.<br />

Bellewaerde <strong>Park</strong> was home to the 1991 Mack<br />

Darkride “Los Piratas”. Deemed to have become<br />

too expansive in repairs, it was decided to remove<br />

it from the large building, and to replace it with a<br />

new ride construction. “Huracan” is the name of<br />

the new attraction that has been placed in the<br />

existing building situated next to the atmospheric<br />

Mexican plaza in the far eastern part of the park,<br />

surrounded by the “Boomerang” and the Topple<br />

Tower “El Volador” from Huss.<br />

Flanked by statues, the entrance of the ride<br />

creates a lot of attention, and visitors reach the<br />

station area by way of a large and winding queue<br />

through mine shafts and mural decorated hallways.<br />

The consistent and good theme, and various<br />

lighting effects are very effective. Guests<br />

however are only let into the station area per ride<br />

cycle, depriving the successful station unfortunately<br />

of well deserved attention from the waiting<br />

riders.<br />

The snake-train offers comfortable seats and<br />

enough room. Separate lap bars make it possible<br />

for passengers to partake of the ride with a height<br />

66


from one meter, and the story is told through a<br />

sound system behind the head rests (4 speakers<br />

per car). Unfortunately the backrests are so high<br />

that there’s hardly any uninterrupted view to the<br />

front, not even from the lead car. The question<br />

therefore comes to mind as to whether the park<br />

shouldn’t have opted for the ESC-type coaster<br />

from Zierer (Elevated Seating Coaster). These are<br />

more open, and more accessible for loading and<br />

unloading, and would have probably increased<br />

the feeling of riding on the snake’s back.<br />

Shortly after the snake gets moving, it travels into<br />

the dark ride section and moves slowly through<br />

several chambers with various elements, past two<br />

impressive waterfalls, a chamber of fire, a room<br />

filled with mist, and a large area with wind. The<br />

theming by TAA (Theming and Animatronics<br />

Industries S.A.) is beautiful, and has been effectively<br />

done. Bellewaerde <strong>Park</strong> indeed succeeded<br />

in creating the required atmosphere and storytelling.<br />

The train moves at a speed of 6 km/h per<br />

friction drive propulsion, but this speed is<br />

adjustable by the park according to crowds. All<br />

the while when moving through these chambers,<br />

the custom composed music is played through<br />

the sound system and every room has its own<br />

piece. It is very refreshing to see the work put into<br />

this, as opposed to just playing a single piece of<br />

music right through.<br />

A swift lift brings the train from Huracan’s temple<br />

upwards and outside of the building. The transition<br />

from top to drop is fairly slow but this allows<br />

for a nice view of the Mexican square and is great<br />

for onlookers as well. Although having enclosed<br />

coasters popping out of the building is an interesting<br />

feature seen elsewhere before, it also<br />

enhances the experience and it gives the spectators<br />

a small idea what to expect indoors.<br />

A mild but great curve drops to the right and back<br />

into the building. This is where “Huracan” then<br />

starts unleashing its power, as the building is<br />

pitch black, which gives riders the feeling of disorientation.<br />

The coaster has a total length of 500<br />

meters, but the dark section makes it seem longer.<br />

The train accelerates during the good and long<br />

drop in the dark building, and unexpected curves<br />

and turns follow at a fast pace. Apart from a bit of<br />

a slower section, the speed of the attraction is<br />

very good.<br />

Following a final curve to the left, the train goes<br />

into the final magnetic brakes, facing into a neat<br />

tunnelled laser effect. The train waits here until the<br />

station is free, and the snake then crawls back into<br />

its starting position. Returning to the Mexican<br />

square one can see kids and adults alike running<br />

towards the queue for another ride, which is<br />

always a very good sign that everything was done<br />

well.<br />

“Huracan” is very good family coaster and a great<br />

addition to Bellewaerde <strong>Park</strong>. The story as well as<br />

the theming are original and fit in well with the<br />

existing Mexican part of the park. The dark ride,<br />

exterior section, fast dark section and end effect<br />

make for a great mix, and Zierer offers a silent and<br />

smooth ride experience.<br />

It may not be the most thrilling coaster on the<br />

planet but this wasn’t the park’s goal either.<br />

Bellewaerde <strong>Park</strong> aims to be a family oriented<br />

park and with “Huracan”, it plays the market well.<br />

The ride should show up on everyone’s 2013<br />

calendar and will no doubt be a hit with visitors<br />

and fans alike.<br />

lately the Canton Tower is also<br />

playing in this league – a little<br />

higher however.<br />

Canton Tower<br />

The Canton Tower was the highest<br />

tower in the world at that<br />

time, until the Tokyo Skytree<br />

was completed in March 2011.<br />

Although work was not ready,<br />

Guangzhou, better known as Canton, is an the tower was inaugurated for the Asian games in<br />

industrial city in southern China with a good October 2010, which took place in Guangzhou.<br />

10 million residents, and is located slightly more The opening took place in December 2011, and<br />

than 100 kilometres from the <strong>Special</strong> Administrative<br />

Region of Hong Kong. It is considered as the metres has been officially opened. After pur-<br />

since then the viewing platform at a height of 455<br />

factory of the world, and so it’s no wonder that the chasing tickets in the basement, visitors must go<br />

Canton Tower has become an architectural landmark<br />

in China’s emerging economy. The laying of part between the outside of the tower and the<br />

through a security check initially. A lift travels in<br />

the foundation stone took place in 2005, and the cladding up to the Cloud Observation Deck on the<br />

highest point was completed in 2009. The complete<br />

height including antenna reaches 600 met-<br />

also allows for entry to the Star Observation Deck<br />

107 th floor. The 150 RMB (a good 18 Euro) ticket<br />

res – in comparison, the 350 metres height of the one floor higher at 433 metres, and to the open<br />

Stratosphere Tower seems slight.<br />

air deck at 455 metres.<br />

In this area however there are even more intense<br />

safety requirements: backpacks of any description<br />

are taboo – presumably the platform is an<br />

enticing spring point for base jumpers. However<br />

even without a parachute Canon Tower offers<br />

enough thrills. The view for example, when the sky<br />

is not thickly clouded over, as it was on the day of<br />

our visit, and quite often. Those who wish for an<br />

even higher experience can travel to the Look Out<br />

for an additional 338 RMB (41 Euro). The addition<br />

33 metres – when considering the price – is more<br />

for the prestige of the visitor, rather than a better<br />

view.<br />

However there are also cheaper thrills, for example<br />

the “Bubble Tram”. This construction has 16<br />

gondolas and travels around the viewing tower at<br />

a slanted angle. Each gondola accommodates 6<br />

passengers and requires 20 to 40 minutes for one<br />

circulation, coming at a price of 180 RMB (22<br />

Euro). The attraction was planned by Shanghai<br />

Amusement Machine Engineering, and built by<br />

Shanghai Xidu Amusement Equipment Manufacturing.<br />

The regularly used description of “horizontal<br />

Ferris Wheel” applies only minimally, as the<br />

course is only angled at 15.5°.<br />

The “Sky Drop” has been available since January<br />

2012 for the somewhat more<br />

daring visitor. For a price of 150<br />

RMB or a kombi-ticket, visitors<br />

receive an armband at the entrance<br />

to the viewing platform<br />

with two stubs. Casting a<br />

glance at the giant drop from<br />

the platform, one may well ask<br />

whether the extra money was<br />

worth it, and looking at the type<br />

plate the first impression is confirmed:<br />

at 27.6 metres in height,<br />

it’s less of a drop, and rather<br />

more a “droplet”.<br />

The original assessment however<br />

changes abruptly after taking<br />

one’s place on the seat<br />

bench accommodating a maximum<br />

of four guests, when the<br />

safety restraint is closed, and<br />

the gondola is pulled upwards.<br />

The Canton Tower<br />

comprises of a hyperbolical<br />

structure of two moving<br />

ellipses<br />

Passengers are not standing with their backs to<br />

the edge of the platform anymore, and it all becomes<br />

very clear that they are already at a 455<br />

metre height before anything even happens. Even<br />

with bad visibility the view is awesome, and the<br />

slow ascent doesn’t make it any better.<br />

When one doesn’t look straight down at the<br />

platform and with that has a reference point, but<br />

looks somewhat into the distance, then the low<br />

drop height becomes irrelevant. As the time of<br />

release and the first metre of drop are the most<br />

intensive moments in freefalling anyway, it’s<br />

hardly of any consequence that the first magnetic<br />

brakes already take a grip after approximately<br />

15 metres.<br />

Whilst one is getting over everything and collecting<br />

deposited belongings, probably the first<br />

thought is when to cash in the second stub for<br />

another ride. This thought is suddenly interrupted<br />

by personnel who lead visitors to the other side of<br />

the tower, where a second fall is waiting – also with<br />

a four-passenger gondola.<br />

One notices at the very latest when place has<br />

been taken that something is somehow different<br />

when compared to the experience that took<br />

place just around a minute ago. The seat is more<br />

of a saddle than a seat. The planner was also<br />

sadistic enough to increase the thrill factor for the<br />

second ride, so that nobody gets the idea of<br />

getting accustomed to the effect. The queasy<br />

feeling during ascent softens a little, but then<br />

there’s an even more unease when the gondola<br />

tips forward at the highest point before decoupling<br />

– a principle that is already known as “Tilting<br />

Tower”, for example the “High Fall” at Movie <strong>Park</strong><br />

Germany.<br />

In actual fact one can recognise the manufacturer<br />

of the “Sky Drop” already on the basis of the characteristic<br />

form of the seat bench, the sit-downspur<br />

and the lift, but at the latest at the stand-upspur<br />

that it’s a product from Intamin. Confirmation<br />

can be seen on the type plate that the supplier<br />

was Ride Trade International Corp. Est. This company<br />

was from the Intamin Group before restructuring,<br />

and all amusement attractions were<br />

pooled together into the Intamin Amusement<br />

Rides Int. Corp. Est.<br />

As already mentioned, a visit to Canton Tower is<br />

not a really cheap experience. Although there is<br />

a packet price for entrance in combination with<br />

the “Bubble Tram” or the “Sky Drop”, this is only<br />

slightly cheaper than the total sum of both single<br />

prices. And a ticket with all three components<br />

included is not available. On the other hand,<br />

visitors are offered an unusual experience that<br />

remains long in their memory.<br />

KIDDIE RIDE<br />

Two year old Legoland<br />

guests can already ride this<br />

attraction from Mack Rides<br />

Traditionally the new season begins<br />

with the Easter holidays.<br />

However it was not only the very<br />

early Easter dates this year, but<br />

also the unusually cold weather<br />

that made life difficult for all theme<br />

and amusement parks.<br />

Whilst a number of German<br />

parks delayed opening unceremoniously<br />

(among others Belantis<br />

and Movie <strong>Park</strong> Germany),<br />

there were others – particularly<br />

those with overnight possibilities<br />

– who could do nothing else<br />

other than open. And so was the<br />

case with the German Legoland.<br />

Temple X-pedition<br />

Text:<br />

Fotos:<br />

Frank Lanfer<br />

Frank Lanfer, Legoland<br />

And it may well have been due to a little foresight<br />

that this year’s Legoland-novelty by the<br />

name of “Temple X-pedition” is an indoor attraction.<br />

Similar to the already known constructions at<br />

other Legoland parks worldwide, it is an interactive<br />

Darkride where ride guests in two-seat<br />

jeeps, drive through an abandoned temple building.<br />

The adventurers – big and small – meet up<br />

with various Lego-figures, mummies, snakes, and<br />

skeletons during the three minute ride – all are<br />

naturally of Lego-bricks. Travelling on the just 68<br />

metre course through the dark labyrinth means<br />

also shooting various targets and figures with light<br />

guns.<br />

As is usual in the meantime with such attractions,<br />

the points are counted up, and the total number is<br />

shown at the end. The number of points achieved<br />

for each target can be seen on a board in the waiting<br />

area, which by the way is happily not too long:<br />

after a small roofed over waiting area, the path<br />

leads to a small room, and after that straight to the<br />

station area. Long waiting times appear to be as<br />

good as impossible. No wonder, as this attraction<br />

harbours – as is the case already at Legoland<br />

Billund – a classic, strong capacity, endless ride<br />

system from Mack Rides.<br />

Passenger loading takes place during operation<br />

without a rotating conveyor band. Despite this,<br />

FAST FACTS<br />

KIDDIE RIDE<br />

passenger loading is not difficult due to the<br />

relatively low speed of only 1.3 kilometres per hour,<br />

whilst the ride through the eight themed rooms is<br />

perceived to be substantially faster, as the twoseat<br />

jeeps rotate almost permanently on their own<br />

axis. Additionally, the track layout is quite curvy,<br />

so that the other ride guest gondolas only very<br />

rarely slide back into the visual field. This all<br />

makes no difference to the younger Legoland visitors<br />

however, because of the fact that “Temple X-<br />

pedition” is one of the few attractions at Legoland<br />

Deutschland approved for children less than 4<br />

years of age. And in this case all visitors from the<br />

age of two years are allowed to experience the<br />

quite speedy dark adventure in the company of an<br />

adult, when at the same time the quite heavy<br />

pistols are not easy to handle for them.<br />

The new 6,000 square metre sized theme area<br />

“Reich der Pharaonen” has come into being together<br />

with the “Temple X-pedition”, and initially<br />

only contains this one attraction, and is “geographically”<br />

located outside the normal circuit – to be<br />

more precise, in the second row behind the other<br />

original Legolands. Visitors reach the new indoor<br />

attraction over stone steps, where a five metre<br />

high Pharaoh out of 275,000 Lego-bricks awaits<br />

them as an eye catcher. At the same time the<br />

opportunity to expand was taken advantage of, to<br />

replace the more or less temporary back entrance<br />

with a more adequate one, through which all overnight<br />

guests of the Legoland holiday village use<br />

as entrance to the park.<br />

NEW LEGOLAND-HOTELS IN CALIFORNIA AND IN GERMANY<br />

It was first last year that the<br />

world’s first Legoland hotel<br />

opened at Legoland Windsor.<br />

This year, two are to be added:<br />

in California and in Germany.<br />

However the two are vastly different to each<br />

other. Whilst the Californian hotel version is<br />

confusingly similar to the high class hotel in England,<br />

the “Ritterburg” in Bavaria can’t quite match<br />

up to the previously mentioned 4-Star hotels.<br />

However the Bavarian park has already been<br />

operating the 11 hectare Legoland holiday village<br />

since 2002 with 72 individual bungalows. The<br />

central reception as well as restaurants can also<br />

be used by the new “Ritterburg”, with its 34<br />

themed rooms.<br />

Although the design of the facades is<br />

unfortunately very bold, it does fit very well to the<br />

area of “Land der Ritter” at Legoland, but is<br />

however about a 10 minute walk away. The<br />

Legoland holiday resort now has over 612 beds<br />

available.<br />

The new three-storey hotel at Legoland California<br />

has 250 themed Lego-rooms, a reception with<br />

thousands of Lego-figures, a themed restaurant,<br />

a “Skyline Café”, and – in accordance with the<br />

weather there – naturally also a pool area. ■<br />

GARDALAND<br />

Text & Photos: Matteo Crepaldi<br />

Who wouldn’t want to have the choice; spend a<br />

day at your favourite theme park or enjoy some<br />

of the best chocolate in the World? On March<br />

23rd and 24th it was possible to do both because<br />

Gardaland, the most visited Italian theme park,<br />

hosted for the first time in its history the largest<br />

European chocolate exhibition: the “Eurochocolate”.<br />

For two entire days, guests could enjoy, at a very<br />

special admission rate, most of all the amazing<br />

attractions this resort can offer as well as a wide<br />

variety of games, animations, demonstrations and<br />

workshops related to the world of chocolate. This<br />

meant that throughout the entire park, it was possible,<br />

not only to enjoy chocolate in every existing<br />

form, but also to take part in games and contests<br />

and bring home some very sweet souvenirs.<br />

The official season opening took place on the 28 th<br />

of March with the introduction of<br />

“Madagascar Live!” This brand<br />

new show, which takes place in the<br />

earlier “Pala Raptor”, is based on<br />

the popular DreamWorks animated<br />

movie Madagascar 3. The show,<br />

after travelling through the most<br />

important European cities, is now<br />

settled at Gardaland.<br />

For those who had a chance to see<br />

similar shows in other parks, this<br />

one is more similar to the one held<br />

in Everland, Korea, than the one at<br />

Chessington’s World of Adventures,<br />

England. Whilst the one at<br />

Everland takes place inside an enclosed<br />

theatre and has a longer<br />

and more detailed storyline, the<br />

one at Chessington is more like a<br />

street show.<br />


DISNEYLAND SHANGHAI<br />

A photo of a model of the new<br />

Shanghai Disneyland, set to<br />

open in 2015, was revealed to<br />

shareholders at their recent<br />

meeting in Phoenix, Arizona.<br />

The park will be very generously<br />

designed – with enough<br />

grounds for building. And so for<br />

example there is to be a total<br />

ground area of 44,500 m 2 of<br />

green space, and plans are for<br />

the erection of the tallest Enchanted<br />

Storybook Castle of all<br />

six Disney parks worldwide.<br />

“With Shanghai Disneyland,<br />

we’re creating a one-of-a-kind<br />

destination that is authentically<br />

Disney and distinctly Chinese,”<br />

CEO Bob Iger said.<br />

The building of the infrastructure and support<br />

facilities for Disneyland Shanghai are almost<br />

completed, and design details and installation of<br />

features in the theme park will begin this year.<br />

Some major structures will take shape in the theme<br />

park at the end of this year, which will open in<br />

Chuansha in the Pudong New Area, said Zhou<br />

Xianqiang, Assistant Director of Shanghai International<br />

Tourism and Resorts Zone Management<br />

Commission.<br />

The 168 hectare Disney-resort (with Disneyland,<br />

hotels, parking areas, and extension areas), will be<br />

the new heart of a 20 km 2 sized tourist area. Following<br />

completion of the rest of the grounds, streets,<br />

and rivers this year, the commission will hand over<br />

the area for further construction to the officials of<br />

Disney in the United States, announced<br />

Zhou. He also added<br />

that the future theme park will be<br />

surrounded by a water way, in<br />

order to separate it from the outside<br />

world.<br />

Disneyland Shanghai will contain more Chinese elements<br />

in order to differentiate it from other Disney<br />

parks, explained Dao Shuming, Director of the<br />

Shanghai Tourist Bureau. Initially though, there will<br />

be a concentration on shows, festival events and<br />

souvenirs. “The entrance price to the future park will<br />

be similar to those of other Disney parks worldwide,<br />

but will take into consideration the salaries of visitors<br />

from Mainland China”, added Zhou.<br />

Following Tokyo and Hong Kong, this will be the<br />

third Disneyland in Asia, and the projected costs of<br />

the first building phase are 24.5 billion Yuan (3<br />

billion Euro).<br />

World’s most visited, seasonally operated park,<br />

was showered with honours and prizes during<br />

the past off-season period – and the first<br />

European Star Award on the occasion of EAS<br />

Berlin in category “Best <strong>Park</strong>” was only one of<br />

them (see www.kirmesparkrevue.de/eas).<br />

No wonder then that the Mack family has to divide<br />

the many award occasions among themselves:<br />

while at the beginning of the year Miriam and<br />

Michael Mack travelled to Los Angeles to receive<br />

the THEA Classic Award, Europa-<strong>Park</strong> GmbH & Co.<br />

Hotelbetriebe KG received the “Jobmotor”1 st prize.<br />

Whilst Europa-<strong>Park</strong> employs around 3,400 personnel<br />

during the season, the 5 park-owned hotels<br />

have alone around 1,000 workers. The award was<br />

received by Thomas Mack, sister Ann-Kathrin and<br />

Matthias Kirch.<br />

Currently Europa-<strong>Park</strong><br />

is starting into the new<br />

season. Punctually 200<br />

years after the first edition<br />

of the “Kinder- und<br />

found a new home<br />

in the “Märchenwald”-<br />

area, which in light of<br />

current events will be<br />

known as “Grimm’s<br />

was the case of<br />

other fairytale areas in<br />

Europa-<strong>Park</strong> earlier,<br />

most of the new additions<br />

have interactive<br />

movements. ■


MOVIELAND PARK<br />

Despite the news that saw it<br />

closing within a few years,<br />

Movieland <strong>Park</strong> is now celebrating<br />

its 10 th anniversary with the<br />

opening of one of the most<br />

unique and exciting attractions<br />

ever created.<br />

Text & Photos: Matteo Crepaldi<br />

Located in Lazise, a beautiful small town on the<br />

southern coast of Lake Garda, just a few<br />

kilometres away from the well known Gardaland<br />

Resort, Movieland, as its name suggests, is an<br />

action movie based theme park, which has<br />

always been known to have a very special selection<br />

of rides and attractions.<br />

Just to have an idea, Movieland is still one of the<br />

very few in the world to own and operate a first<br />

generation Intamin Freefall Tower, and probably<br />

the only one to have a submarine simulator which<br />

perfectly recreates the naval battle scenarios<br />

from the second World War.<br />

And it’s just as important to spend some words on<br />

another very particular attraction: “Magma”, a<br />

ride where professional stunt drivers take the<br />

guests on their extremely powerful trucks around<br />

a recreated South American power plant recently<br />

hit by a deadly earthquake. Movieland is not new<br />

to attractions where the thrill factor is introduced<br />

by the skill level of the crazy personnel who<br />

operate the vehicles and manually control the<br />

whole experience, rather than expensive ride<br />

constructions. This applies perfectly to the “Kitt<br />

Superjet”.<br />

The theme of “Kitt Superjet”, unveiled to the public<br />

officially on March 29 th , is themed around the very<br />

famous TV show of the eighties: Knight Rider with<br />

David Hasselhoff, and known as in Italy as<br />

Supercar.<br />

30 years after his first appearance, Michael<br />

Knight is back again at Movieland <strong>Park</strong> with a<br />

motorboat, sharing the same special characteristics<br />

of Kitt Supercar – which is due to, as has<br />

often happened at Movieland – the clever implementation<br />

of a well know theme, bypassing<br />

licence rights.<br />

The whole action takes place on the artificial lake<br />

used also for the “Rambo Stunt Show”. This area<br />

is totally invisible from around the park and the<br />

only way to see Kitt in action is to ride the Backstage<br />

Panoramic Tour.<br />

80


When approaching the ride, guests are welcomed<br />

by the giant Knight Industries truck which<br />

hosts part of the queue line. Once inside, cast<br />

members give the riders a bright red life vest and<br />

direct them in the boarding area where they can<br />

wait for their turn to ride.<br />

The vehicles on which they are about to embark<br />

are three very powerful motorboats similar to the<br />

ones used in New Zealand to give thrill seekers a<br />

tour of the Kawarau River. Each one of them can<br />

carry up to 14 passengers, and only some minor<br />

modifications were made to better fit inside an<br />

amusement park. The Mercury motors produce a<br />

maximum power of 600 HP. This huge amount of<br />

energy is then transmitted to a Hamiltonjet water<br />

jet, which uses advance fluid dynamics principles<br />

to accelerate and control the boat.<br />

As soon as everyone has found a seat, a short<br />

video, featuring Michael Knight himself, explains<br />

the unique characteristics of the ride, and creates<br />

When the preshow is over, the motors are started<br />

and the boat is gently pulled outside the boarding<br />

dock and into the ride arena. At this point the<br />

storyline is that “Kitt Superjet” is attacked by a<br />

helicopter and bad guys shooting automatic<br />

weapons and it must find a way to escape. To do<br />

so, the motorboats perform quick accelerations,<br />

sharp turns, 360° spins and abrupt stops. All of<br />

this surrounded by many different special effects<br />

recreate feelings of a real life threatening situation.<br />

Since the attraction is completely human controlled,<br />

every ride can be different from the previous<br />

one depending on the mood of the pilot.<br />

Also, the wetness level of each ride can change<br />

depending on the type of manoeuvres that are<br />

performed, and the distance from some of the<br />

special effects.<br />

Overall, “Kitt Superjet” is a very exciting, unique<br />

and unpredictable ride, and the perfect way for<br />

a nice anticipation for what lies ahead.<br />

Movieland to celebrate its 10 th birthday! ■<br />

PROJECT: A NEW PARK IN PAKISTAN?<br />

Text: H. Jürgen Kagelmann, Verena Kagelmann<br />

Bin Laden has made it possible, or more precise:<br />

his death has. Sounds a little macabre, but<br />

as is known, the key figure of 9/11 was killed in<br />

his hiding place in Abottabad in Pakistan by the<br />

special forces unit Navy Seals in May 2011. However<br />

this now could have unusual consequences.<br />

The local district government wishes to bring<br />

tourism to the area. For this reason it plans an over<br />

20 hectares sized theme park with countless additional<br />

attractions such as a zoo, adventure sports<br />

and a restaurant. Additionally there will apparently<br />

also be a World Cultural Heritage centre and<br />

artificial waterfalls. The project –<br />

in cooperation with private and<br />

public investors who are unknown<br />

however – is to be financed with 30 million<br />

US $, and is to enhance the image of the city. A later<br />

and generous extension of the grounds is possible.<br />

Building should have started at the end of March,<br />

but nobody has heard anything since.<br />

Reference to the earlier terrorist boss is – understandably<br />

– heard reluctantly, and one is even less<br />

enthusiastic about being linked to him.<br />

In general Pakistan belongs among the underdeveloped<br />

touristic areas, and if there were any<br />

tourists at all, they would without a doubt be only<br />

Islamic. For well-to-do families from Islamabad,<br />

Abottabad has become a popular destination. For<br />

travellers from the west, the country remains, as<br />

before, one of the most unsafe in the world. ■<br />

Swarovski Kristallwelten<br />

Over 11 million visitors since the start in 1995,<br />

makes the Swarovski Kristallwelten in Wattens/<br />

Tirol one of the most popular attractions in the<br />

whole of Austria.<br />

With after all 700,000 guests annually, it has<br />

become one of the permanent “big boys” in the<br />

tourist sector. In order to entice even more visitors<br />

to the fascinating world of crystal, the Swarovski<br />

management has announced a very generous<br />

extension: the complete area is to be extended from<br />

3.5 to 7.5 hectares – with investment costs of 34<br />

million Euro.<br />

Swarovski is targeting the families especially, and<br />

wants to install new attractions in the outside area,<br />

to newly position the company. Completion is<br />

planned for 2015; the turning of the spade will take<br />

place this year.<br />

REVIVAL: HUSS CLASSIC RIDES<br />

This photo example<br />

shows a “King Kong” at<br />

Bobbejaanland, a “Giant<br />

Frisbee” at Cedar Point,<br />

and a “Condor” at Serengeti<br />

<strong>Park</strong> Hodenhagen<br />

Huss <strong>Park</strong> Attractions is currently experiencing<br />

a renaissance of its so called classic rides,<br />

particularly those from the 1980s that were very<br />

popular and couldn’t be missing from any fairground<br />

or park.<br />

As the Bremen manufacturer recently announced,<br />

the new Chinese park Ningo Romon World has<br />

ordered 4 Huss constructions at the same time: a<br />

“Suspended Top Spin”, a 42 metre high “Giant<br />

Frisbee”, a 55-seat “Pirate Ship”, as well as a threearm<br />

ASR-”Breakdance”.<br />

Additionally, the new safari park Chong Qing in<br />

China will receive a 38-seat “Suspended Top Spin”<br />

and a 24-seat “King Kong” ride.<br />

Two other Chinese parks have ordered a 26 m high<br />

“Condor” each. This ride was sold 30 times in the<br />

80s and 90s. According to General Manager Mirko<br />

Schulze, they will receive the “Condor 2-G”, which<br />

is in the same format but has a worked over ride<br />

design.<br />

Further deliveries in this year will go to Vialand in<br />

Turkey and the IMG Theme <strong>Park</strong> in Dubai. ■<br />

LE WATERPARK BELLE MARE<br />

MAGAZINE<br />

Text & Photos: H. Jürgen Kagelmann<br />

Actually it’s quite astounding that there is a<br />

water park on Mauritius, after all it’s an island<br />

with pleasant warmth and is surrounded by<br />

marvellous turquoise coloured water.<br />

All the same there are three good reasons for the<br />

erection of Le Waterpark: on the one hand, many<br />

of the 1.2 million Mauritians can’t swim, and therefore<br />

prefer a safe water park, and secondly there<br />

are a number of slides here and no sharks, which<br />

is exactly the opposite on a natural beach.<br />

Le Waterpark was erected in 2000 on the east side<br />

near the town of Belle Mare, is around 10 hectares<br />

in size, and is since then a focal point particularly<br />

for families – and accordingly, the attractions are<br />

more of a modest thrill. And one hopes to entice<br />

many tourists – after all, the island is a holiday<br />

stronghold, and is the second most important line<br />

of business for tourism.<br />

However, preferred mostly are other recreational<br />

amusements such as watching dolphins, playing<br />

golf, or the casino. The locals spend their time<br />

mostly among themselves, but for over half of<br />

them, a cheaper entrance price probably plays a<br />

role as well. (Tourist price: Adults and children pay<br />

345 or alternatively 185 Rupees, converted, about<br />

8.50 € and 4.50 €). As these amounts are still<br />

relatively expensive for most of the population, the<br />

visitor numbers are held within limits. Hence there<br />

are again announcements that the owner (the<br />

Mauritian Sugar Investment Trust is the largest<br />

public company on the island), is considering<br />

closing the park. This has not happened to date,<br />

however the water park is in obvious need of<br />

renovation.<br />

The theming is relatively simple, nice, and fitting:<br />

old “aging” colonial buildings. From outside it<br />

looks dilapidated; inside is dominated by the<br />

pirate motive. After entry one meets up with<br />

“Pirate’s Plaza” with an impressive and huge skull,<br />

and a shipwreck in which visitors can climb about.<br />

Here also is the huge 1,000 seat restaurant “La<br />

Table des Pirates”.<br />

For friends of well cared for water thrills, there is<br />

only a mediocre offer. Apart from the kiddie pools<br />

and the usual Lazy River that quite originally<br />

travels though the imitation shipwreck, there is<br />

also the longest slide in the park at 125 m, the<br />

“Black Hole”-pipe slide, and a multi-lane-slide.<br />

The wave pool is not uninteresting with a programme<br />

that allows for seven different configurations<br />

of waves; visitors can and are allowed to surf<br />

there as well.<br />
