KALEIDOSCOPE<br />

PIRATENSCHAUKEL<br />

Christopher Nitsche<br />

and his “Piratenschaukel”<br />

Text & Photos: Norman Vogt<br />

Last year, Christopher<br />

Nitsche from Erpolzheim<br />

(Palatinate) took over the<br />

“Piratenschaukel” from<br />

Erich Winter from Worms,<br />

who had built this kiddie<br />

swing himself in 2006.<br />

The light-weight swing (6 m<br />

front, 8.50 m with paybox) is<br />

completely made of aluminium<br />

and can be towed by car<br />

for transportation. After the<br />

takeover, the front was newly<br />

sheeted and newly painted by the Baumann Atelier<br />

firm from Flomersheim. The five boats were dismantled<br />

and equipped with a new floors and seats. All the<br />

screws were removed and replaced by new, highquality<br />

steel examples. Moreover, the lamps were<br />

replaced by LEDs. Finally, a new undercarriage<br />

tarpaulin was mounted. This done, the attraction was<br />

ready for its première under new management at the<br />

Martinsmarkt in Erpolzheim. The five “Piratenschaukel”<br />

boats were newly and variously painted. The pink<br />

boat quickly turned out to be the favourite boat of the<br />

girls, who often even put up with a protracted waiting<br />

time to be able to swing in their boat. Boys, however,<br />

prefer the “Black Perl” boat. Nitsche’s “Piratenschaukel”<br />

is presented at smaller events in<br />

Palatinate.<br />

■<br />

New: “Bora Bora”<br />

BORA BORA<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Norman Vogt<br />

Bernhard (l.) and Walter<br />

Parpalioni at the opening<br />

“Bora Bora” is the name of<br />

the new games booth from<br />

Bernhard Parpalioni from<br />

Stuttgart that went into<br />

operation at the Mainz<br />

Johannisfest. It is a modern<br />

coin-operated attraction<br />

with a total of 118 modern<br />

games, which were ordered<br />

from a firm in Brussels.<br />

Previously, Bernhard Parpalioni<br />

toured together with his<br />

father Walter with the large<br />

Continental Pick stand “City Shop”. His new attraction<br />

is entirely open, and while the showman built the<br />

9 x 4.50 m wagon himself, he contracted the Afaw<br />

firm to realise his design ideas for the “Bora Bora”:<br />

namely; beach, ocean and a South Sea “feel”. Other<br />

striking features are the light-green flooring and the<br />

latest lighting system. The games booth has<br />

electrical requirements of just 18 kW. Next to the<br />

attraction benches have been put up, inviting<br />

guests to linger and enjoy. Further decoration<br />

elements are palm trees and reeds. During the<br />

première in Mainz, a team of entertainers<br />

guaranteed a party atmosphere, presenting<br />

every guest with a Hawaiian flower garland. ■<br />

CORTINA JET<br />

KALEIDOSCOPE<br />

The Lauwers firm has<br />

introduced the “Cortina Jet”<br />

in Belgium<br />

The ride was last put into<br />

storage at a Finnish<br />

amusement park<br />

Text: Ton Koppei<br />

Photos: Ton Koppei, Archiv Tykkimaki<br />

There are ride attractions which remain ageless<br />

and enduringly fascinating despite their<br />

advanced age. The "Bayernkurve", built by the<br />

now defunct Anton Schwarzkopf firm, is one of<br />

those attractions. Wherever an attraction like<br />

this appears, it is always highly popular with<br />

passengers and spectators alike.<br />

The Belgian showman René Lauwers, who had<br />

been looking for a suitable example of this classic<br />

ride for some time, finally hit it lucky in far away Finland<br />

in late 2011, where a Bayernkurve “Cortina<br />

Jet”, last operated in the Tykkimaki amusement<br />

park, had been in storage for some time.<br />

Even though it had been<br />

built in 1970, the<br />

construction was in very<br />

good technical condition.<br />

Lauwers purchased<br />

the attraction, overhauled<br />

it in his limited<br />

free time, prepared it for<br />

touring and presented it<br />

at this year’s Pentecost Fair in Antwerp.<br />

Despite most of the decoration elements not then<br />

being completed and adequate lighting largely<br />

missing, the attraction was nonetheless highly<br />

popular with the public. Lauwers will build up the<br />

attraction at two to three further fairgrounds this<br />

year.<br />

■<br />

Goetzke’s “Breakdance”<br />

BREAKDANCE<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Norman Vogt<br />

The visual appearance of the classic round<br />

ride “Breakdance” (Huss) from Alexander<br />

Goetzke from Munich has been successfully<br />

modernised.<br />

Its backflash and gondolas now feature wellknown<br />

figures from the world of movies – even<br />

the amusement park, where the “Breakdance”<br />

had made a temporary guest appearance was<br />

immortalized on one of the gondolas. Restyling had<br />

started already last year, with artist Pryzbilla demonstrating<br />

his skills on the “Breakdance”, having completed<br />

his job at Goetzke’s “Alex Airport” beforehand.<br />

A striking feature on the rear sides of the new gondolas<br />

is the many LEDs, which provide a spectacular and<br />

colourful lighting after dusk. The lighting pillars in the<br />

front area are now equipped with six LED screens. Restyling<br />

has not yet been completed; among other<br />

features, the name sign is to be changed to match the<br />

new design.<br />

the Plaenert & Schieck firm:<br />

Plaenert, and their son Hugo<br />

The guards in front of the<br />

“House of Horror”<br />

Text & Photos: Rolf Orschel<br />

Since late April last year, the “House of Horror”<br />

Walkthrough construction has been touring under<br />

new management. The young couple, Stephanie<br />

Schieck and Patrick Plaenert from Weberstedt in<br />

the Thuringia district of Unstrut-Hainich, have<br />

taken over the attraction from the Hiddenhausen<br />

showman enterprise Johann Spindler & Sohn.<br />

Having successfully toured the attraction all over<br />

Germany for almost 20 years, the previous owner<br />

parted with the construction due to health reasons.<br />

In 1993, the attraction was built by the Soest Fahrzeugbau<br />

firm as “Das Haus” for the showman Johann<br />

Spindler, and was redesigned as the “House of<br />

Horror” 12 years ago. In order to give the construction<br />

a new individual design, many ideas from Johann<br />

Spindler and his son Sascha were realized. The front<br />

was newly painted with scenes from the world of<br />

horror and ghosts by the Kowalik Airbrushstudio, and<br />

creepy new effects were installed inside the construction.<br />

Finally, the larger-than-life sized guard welcoming<br />

the guests in front of the entrance to the construction<br />

was fitted out with a new set of black leather<br />

outfit.<br />

Two years ago, Stephanie Schieck and Patrick Plaenert<br />

founded their joint business, originally planning to<br />

tour a ride attraction. However, when they learnt last<br />

year that the “House of Horror” was up for sale, they<br />

inspected the construction, quickly struck a deal with<br />

Johann Spindler, and took it over in excellent condition<br />

in April. Shortly after that, on 27 th April, they opened<br />

their new acquisition at the Mai-Kirmes in Wesel.<br />

Even though the attraction was handed over in perfect<br />

condition, the MSR-Service firm in Mansfeld/Großörner<br />

was contracted to thoroughly overhaul the electrical<br />

equipment according to the latest standards. At the<br />

same time, the lighting system was equipped with<br />

LEDs. Moreover, additional decoration elements were<br />

mounted and new effects were installed inside and<br />

outside the attraction. Under the management of the<br />

Plaenert & Schieck GbR, the “House of Horror” will<br />

continue to provide creepy fun for the general public<br />

on two storeys. The “Folterkammer” (torture chamber)<br />

and the “Dachboden des Schreckens” (attic of horror)<br />

provide a creepy atmosphere. In addition two live actors<br />

haunt the inside and the outside of the attraction –<br />

in the afternoon modestly out of consideration for<br />

younger visitors, and horribly for adults in the evenings.<br />

During this season, the “House of Horror” will be<br />

presented, among other venues, in Zerbst, Kamenz,<br />

Weinböhla, Tangermünde, and Neuruppin. ■<br />

SKATER / SALTO MORTALE<br />

®<br />

Text & Photos: Norman Vogt<br />

For some years, the Spanish showman<br />

firm FAF has been touring the<br />

Top Scan “Skater”. Originally, this<br />

Mondial ride went into operation in<br />

Germany under the name of “Salto<br />

Mortale” in 1997.<br />

After the first owner Mike Ahrend had<br />

sold the ride to France, it went on to the<br />

south of Europe; specifically to Spain.<br />

Unfortunately, the “Salto Mortale”, which<br />

had been effectively designed by the<br />

Elfering firm at that time, has lost much<br />

of its former visual glory. Merely a<br />

couple of stars on the arm and the<br />

occasional name sign below the seats<br />

still hint at its German past. ■<br />

CHAOS AIRPORT<br />

It will not be long before the<br />

new “Chaos Airport” Funhouse<br />

from Andrea and Mario Haberkorn<br />

from Erfurt will celebrate<br />

its première. Up until now, the<br />

Haberkorn family has been<br />

touring with Continental Pick<br />

stands, a kiddie ride, a pennypusher<br />

and a snack and drink<br />

booth. As they shut down their<br />

large Continental Pick stand<br />

“Gewinn Express” some time<br />

ago, the Haberkorms decided<br />

to have this construction rebuilt<br />

into a Funhouse. Last<br />

year, they eventually came up<br />

with the idea of the “Chaos Airport”<br />

Walkthrough construction.<br />

The renowned Dietz ride<br />

manufacturer from Schwalmstadt<br />

was contracted for the reconstruction.<br />

The theme<br />

design of the attraction is to<br />

depict an airport with a terminal,<br />

a check in, a tower, a conveyor<br />

belt, an aeroplane starting<br />

up, and other details. The<br />

course through the “Chaos Airport”<br />

is to be equipped with<br />

classic Funhouse effects.<br />

From the terminal visitors can<br />

choose between the course<br />

via a slide resembling the escape<br />

hatch of an aeroplane, or<br />

via stairs to get out of the construction.<br />

“Chaos Airport” is to<br />

celebrate its première at the<br />

Autumn Festival in Nürnberg<br />

and will be presented at the<br />

Oktoberfest in Erfurt. ■<br />

Production at KMG will be operating at full capacity<br />

until September 2014. Moreover, the ride<br />

manufacturer announced a new ride concept for<br />

late 2014 / early 2015 – and was pleased with the<br />

delivery of the tenth KMG ride for its loyal Swiss<br />

customer H.P. Maier.<br />

Maier’s novelty called “Super Chaos” is the second<br />

example of the “Sicko” Swing from KMG, and will<br />

make its first appearances in Romanshorn and<br />

Wetzikon in August. According to KMG, Maier’s<br />

“Super Chaos” has been equipped with a number of<br />

special features, such as an additional large name<br />

sign and a sound system from Hofmann. As is well<br />

known, the prototype of the Sicko, the “Air One Maxx”,<br />

went into operation under the management of French<br />

showman Dominique Lerendu last year. On completion<br />

of the “Super Chaos” for H.P. Maier, the<br />

following constructions will be built and completed at<br />

KMG up until the end of the year: one “Speed” each<br />

for Fiesta Shows in the USA, and Golden Way<br />

Amusements in Australia, as well as “Freak Out”<br />

H.P. Maier has already received his<br />

novelty “Super Chaos” (type “Sicko”)<br />

Swings for B&B Amusements (Australia), Alpine<br />

Amusements and Butler Amusements (both USA).<br />

Afterwards new constructions will be built for<br />

customers in Germany, Great Britain, Australia,<br />

Norway and the US up until September 2014. In late<br />

2014 / early 2015, KMG will introduce a new ride<br />

concept, the prototype of which will be delivered to a<br />

customer in Australia.<br />

SPASS-MOBIL<br />

Text & Photos: Uwe Holzmann<br />

At this year’s Schützenfest in Hannover, the<br />

Kirmes & <strong>Park</strong> Revue had the opportunity to see<br />

“on tour” the “Spass-Mobil” from the Oliver<br />

Steinecker firm from Schwanewede near Bremen.<br />

It is a compact Walkthrough construction with a<br />

front length of 17 metres and a depth of 6 metres,<br />

which was created for both young visitors and<br />

adults - but primarily for families with children -<br />

and went into operation at the Bremerhaven<br />

Freimarkt 2012.<br />

Already in 2011, the plan to build a small Walkthrough<br />

construction was born within the Steinecker family,<br />

who also tour three hook-a-duck constructions<br />

throughout Northern Germany. They came into<br />

contact with Mrs Witte from Hamburg, whose<br />

“Geisterschiff” Walkthrough construction had been<br />

put into storage and was up for sale. Oliver<br />

Steinecker succeeded in convincing Mrs Witte of the<br />

worthiness of his plans, and she finally sold him the<br />

“Geisterschiff”. Energetically supported by his son<br />

Lucas, it took Oliver Steinecker about half a year to<br />

rebuild the construction himself, before the Uwe<br />

Siefert artist workshop carried out the colourful<br />

painting on the construction. When the new attraction<br />

commenced operation, even the previous owner, Mrs<br />

Witte, was highly satisfied with and positively surprised<br />

by the result – an attraction under the motto<br />

“The Large Flower-Power-Family Fun”, providing a<br />

water course with rotating discs and shaking bridges,<br />

an obstacle course through colourfully painted<br />

corridors, and a mirror maze spanning a distance of<br />

some 60 metres. The 1970s design results in a colourful<br />

mix and provides a striking spot of colour on the<br />

fairgrounds.<br />

For the season 2014, there are plans for another<br />

extension of the attraction, according to which the<br />

paybox with an additional corridor is to be moved in<br />

front of the attraction. At the same time, an additional<br />

wagon will be incorporated into the construction,<br />

positioned along its right side. On two levels there will<br />

be further distance and effects added, resulting in the<br />

front length of the construction to extend to a<br />

maximum of 20 metres. This year, Oliver and Bettina<br />

Steinecker, together with their son Lucas, will present<br />

their “Spass-Mobil” at, among other venues, Bremerhaven,<br />

Diepholz, Meppen and Vegesack. ■<br />

At the time of going to press,<br />

the new “Horror Lazarett”<br />

Walkthrough construction<br />

from Lehmann-Weeber was<br />

nearing completion.<br />

As planned, the final steps in<br />

the construction could be<br />

completed on the firm’s<br />

premises in Worms during the<br />

last few weeks, so that the<br />

attraction could be ready for<br />

the first “doctor’s consultations”<br />

at the Erbach Wiesenmarkt.<br />

A detailed report on<br />

the première in the Odenwald<br />

region of the “Horror Lazarett”<br />

Currently, everybody in the showman industry<br />

is talking about Technical <strong>Park</strong> as<br />

the Italian manufacturer will introduce as<br />

many as three ride novelties this year.<br />

The first example of the “Wild Spark” ride with<br />

jumping movements has celebrated a<br />

successful première in Istanbul, Turkey. Due<br />

to the gondolas being newly constructed (of<br />

carbon fibre and equipped with plenty of light,<br />

as well as individual safety restraints) accommodating<br />

three people each, the ride is hard to compare with<br />

similar rides of this type. There are already orders for<br />

another two “Wild Spark” rides; one of them for a<br />

customer in South America and another for Turkey.<br />

Also delivered to Turkey will be the first “Pegasus 16”<br />

example, namely on 30 th August, 2013. A second<br />

version, ordered by a customer in the USA, is currently<br />

being built. With “Pegasus 16”, Technical <strong>Park</strong> aims<br />

at potential customers interested in presenting an<br />

attraction with a ride pattern differing from the constant<br />

trend towards swing and propeller rides. The same<br />

sales argument applies to the “Aerobat” ride, where<br />

passengers can control their side gondola loopings<br />

themselves. The first two constructions will be delivered<br />

to customers in Turkey and Ukraine.<br />

578 th Crange Kirmes<br />

At a press conference in late April, the Herne<br />

Lord Mayor, Horst Schiereck presented reports<br />

and photos of the 578 th Crange Fair, celebrated<br />

from 2 nd to 11 th August, to media representatives.<br />

The renowned fair event, which enjoys an excellent<br />

reputation at home and abroad, is an<br />

indispensable promotional and economic factor<br />

for the entire region, as money cannot only be<br />

made on the fairground but also out of the fair<br />

event itself. In addition to being an invaluable<br />

advertising medium for the city, it is above all the<br />

suppliers of almost all types of products who<br />

benefit from the event. Moreover, the event leads<br />

to a substantial increase in turnover of public<br />

transport, and the taxi companies also treasure<br />

the fair event.<br />

“When Crange calls, people come; because they<br />

love Crange,” said the Lord Mayor at the opening of<br />

the press conference at the Herne city hall. This<br />

flattering and self-confident statement is<br />

impressively supported by facts regarding the<br />

event. Although the duration of the event will again<br />

be reduced by half a day this year, more than 4<br />

million visitors are expected. Guests have to pass a<br />

five-kilometre front length to see all the fairground<br />

attractions. Visitors to the largest fair event in North-<br />

Rhine Westphalia will be able to enjoy about 500<br />

showmen with well-known and popular attractions,<br />

among them a number of novelties for Crange, as<br />

well as more than 50 ride and Funhouse constructions.<br />

be traded, horse-riding articles will be sold, and a<br />

horse-riding programme will be held. To this day,<br />

the horse market marks the historic origins and<br />

preserves the tradition of the Crange event. While<br />

the ride attractions are still closed on Thursday<br />

evening, the Ruhr region is celebrating its most<br />

extravagant party with all its advantages, but also<br />

disadvantages, at the “Citizen Night” in the Bayernfesthalle<br />

beer tent; the latter much to the detriment<br />

of the showmen, who have to protect their attractions<br />

from vandalism and “wild peeing”. The 578 th 10-<br />

day Crange Fair will eventually be opened on Friday<br />

at 2 p.m. by Lord Mayor Schiereck, accompanied<br />

by famous politicians and sponsors, tapping the<br />

keg inside the festival hall. As star guest at this<br />

year’s opening event, Michael Wendler will create a<br />

party atmosphere inside the Bayernfesthalle beer<br />

tent.<br />

Many Novelties<br />

Even though it is not possible to present only novelty<br />

attractions at an event the size of the Crange Fair,<br />

the organiser succeeded in putting together a very<br />

attractive entertainment contingent that will no<br />

doubt live up to the highest expectations. One of the<br />

most popular photographed motifs will have a new<br />

design this year. The “Circus” Wave-Swinger and<br />

the “Bellevue” Ferris Wheel have already been<br />

photographed together thousands of times. This<br />

year, the Wave-Swinger from Wendler will come to<br />

the Rhein-Herne-Kanal, and the Ferris Wheel will<br />

once again be the landmark towering over the fairground.<br />

The “<strong>Park</strong>our” round ride (Aigner) will make<br />

a first-time appearance in Herne, and at the same<br />

time its second appearance in North-Rhine Westphalia.<br />

Other novelties presented will be “The King”<br />

from Zinnecker and Ahrend’s “Flasher”. Originally,<br />

the some 65-metre looping ride was to celebrate its<br />

première already last year. With the “Air Race”<br />

(Bartels/Geibel), it was possible to engage a newly<br />

designed Miami.<br />

Attractive Occupancy<br />

This year Kaiser’s “Rio Rapidos” rafting ride will<br />

provide a welcome cooling down and the “Wildwasserbahn<br />

3” water ride from Löwenthal will also<br />

be presented once again. In the “Loopingschaukel”<br />

(Von Olnhausen) and the “Superhopser” (Weiß)<br />

visitors will experience fairground nostalgia, and<br />

Manfred Howey will celebrate a milestone anniversary<br />

this year, with his “Happy Sailor” appearing<br />

at Crange for the 35th time. An overview of further<br />

ride attractions being presented: “Big Monster”<br />

(Krameyer), “Breakdance” (Bonner), “Beach<br />

scheme, the “Olympia Looping” will come to the<br />

Rhine-Herne-Kanal again this year, and with the<br />

“Spinning Racer” (Bruch) another large coaster was<br />

approved. The offer of Ghost Rides will remain<br />

unchanged, with “Die große Geisterbahn” (Schütze)<br />

and the “Geisterschlange” (Lehmann) once again<br />

providing a creepy atmosphere, along with the<br />

“Panic Room” (Lemoine), which celebrated its<br />

première at Crange last year. Moreover, the show<br />

and fun sector will be represented by the “Fight<br />

Club” (Schultz/Häsler), the “Lach+ Freu-Haus”<br />

(Distel), “Psychodelic” (Häsler), “Rotor” (Pluschies),<br />

and the “Super Marci World” (Markmann). The five<br />

dodgem tracks, “Diamond” (Hartkopf/Osselmann),<br />

Schmidt’s “Drive in”, “Millennium Drive” (Quante),<br />

“Starlight” (Petter), and Isken’s “Number 1” will retain<br />

their traditional sites. For the younger visitors,<br />

the Crange Fair will present 13 different kiddie rides<br />

this year. This is a remarkable occupancy with attractions<br />

of all kinds.<br />

Directly at the Crange gate many new fan articles<br />

will be available once again. The 5,000 fair pins<br />

featuring the Crange Fair mascot, available since<br />

April, may again be sold-out after a couple of<br />

opening days. The popular fair and gastronomy<br />

passes, available in an edition of 15,000 pieces<br />

each since early July, provide substantially reduced<br />

prices.<br />

Supporting Programme<br />

According to tradition, there will be two fireworks<br />

displays; one for the opening and another one for<br />

the finale. On the Saturday, the long festival<br />

procession will wind through Herne, and on the Sunday<br />

a church service will be held inside the beer<br />

tent, which will also be the venue for committed<br />

Herne residents on Monday, celebrating children on<br />

Tuesday afternoon, and the coronation of the new<br />

Ruhr King on Tuesday evening. Wednesday will be<br />

the popular Family Day, and the Bild-Festzelthammer<br />

will rock in the Bayernfesthalle beer tent in<br />

the evening. As is tradition, Senior's Day will again<br />

be held on Thursday. The ample variety of wellchosen<br />

additional events will guarantee a substantial<br />

visitor attendance, even on weekdays.<br />

These were the plans at the time of going to press.<br />

This list is not exhaustive and subject to change. ■<br />

Fairground director Jens Siemer from the city authorities succeeded in<br />

engaging several novelty attractions for the Stoppelmarkt this year,<br />

such as the giant chain ride “Alex Airport” (Goetzke), the giant swing<br />

“Artistico” (Köhrmann), the Funhouse constructions “Aqua Velis” (Hofmann)<br />

and “Freddy´s Circus” (Zinnecker), the simulator “Traumgenerator”<br />

(Häsler/Lemoine), and the Miami “1001 Nacht” (Elsässer). Presented for<br />

the second time will be the “Poseidon” water ride from Heitmann/ Schneider.<br />

Moreover, the popular family coaster “Wilde Maus” from Barth is an<br />

absolute “must” at the Stoppelmarkt. Other attractions presented will be<br />

the Ferris Wheel (Wilhelm), the “Breakdance”(Dreher/Vespermann), the<br />

dodgem tracks “Formel Eins” (Schneider) and “Top-In” (Robrahn/Böker),<br />

the “Looping the Loop” (Marquis), “Schloss Dracula” (Schütze), “Octopussy”<br />

(Markmann), “Turbo Force” (Schäfer), the “Aqua Labyrinth” (Markmann),<br />

“Disco Swing” (Tacke), “Wellenflug” (Hanstein), “Booster” (Löffelhardt),<br />

Musik Express (Krause), “Piraten Rutsche” (Meyer), Top Spin<br />

(Ludewigt), and the “Live Boxen”<br />

boxing booth from the show sector.<br />

All in all, more than 500 showman<br />

operations were approved to the<br />

event, including 24 Funhouse and<br />

large ride attractions, as well as 20<br />

weatherproof restaurant tents.<br />

After the historic procession with<br />

motif floats, marching bands and<br />

groups on foot on the Thursday, the<br />

Stoppelmarkt will be opened by<br />

Mayor Helmut Gels at the Amtmannsbult.<br />

Further highlights in<br />

the supporting programme will be<br />

the popular backstage tour, offered<br />

by the Verein reisender Schausteller<br />

Vechta (Vechta Association<br />

of touring Showmen) for the<br />

seventh time on Friday. On the Friday<br />

afternoon from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.<br />

there will be a Happy Hour (pay<br />

once – ride twice), and on Sunday<br />

at 10 a.m., showman pastor Fuchs<br />

will hold a church service inside<br />

the Niedersachsenhalle. On Monday<br />

at 7 a.m., there will also be the<br />

traditional horse and cattle market,<br />

where deals are still struck by<br />

merely a handshake, and at 11<br />

a.m. a reception will be held for the<br />

guests of honour. Tuesday will be<br />

the designated Family Day with<br />

reduced prices up until 6 p.m. and<br />

a magnificent fireworks display will<br />

mark the end of the Stoppelmarkt<br />

at 10 p.m.<br />

In addition to sufficient parking<br />

facilities available in the immediate<br />

vicinity of the fairground, the Nordwestbahn<br />

will take the visitors<br />

directly to the Stoppelmarkt. Now<br />

for the 18 th time, the Verein reisender<br />

Schausteller Vechta will offer<br />

the popular Stoppelmarkt pin, the<br />

revenues from which are traditionally<br />

used for the maintenance and<br />

decoration of the entrance gates to<br />

the fairground, as well as for<br />

financing the flower arrangements<br />

on the showman float in the Stoppelmarkt<br />

procession, the “Kinderfinder”<br />

(lost children) pin, and the<br />

1,500 Stoppelmarkt gingerbread<br />

hearts distributed to the spectators<br />

of the procession.<br />

The Plärrer entices<br />

visitors to the Kleinen Exerzierplatz<br />

in Augsburg twice a year<br />

AUGSBURG HERBSTPLÄRRER<br />

Text & Photo: Ralf Schmitt, Rolf Orschel<br />

Poetic Justice: When the Augsburg Osterplärrer<br />

begins, as it always does on a Sunday, the city’s<br />

second major Volksfest, the Herbstplärrer will have<br />

already opened its gates the preceding Friday,<br />

resulting in 17 days of Volksfest fun from 23 rd<br />

August to 8 th September.<br />

As was the case at many other events, this year’s Osterplärrer<br />

in Augsburg suffered from adverse midwinter<br />

weather and loss in turnover. As a general rule, the<br />

Augsburg public loyally returns without fail to the Volksfest<br />

events. At this year’s Herbstplärrer, visitors will be<br />

able to experience as many as three novelties on the fairground.<br />

The major “Flasher” ride from the FTE Ahrend<br />

firm, the “Comic Trip” Miami from Benedikt Hirschberg,<br />

and the “Roll Over” Shake from Patrick Zinnecker will<br />

make their début in Augsburg. They will be joined by<br />

the “Expo Star” Ferris Wheel from Bruch, the Wave-Swinger<br />

from Baumgartner, the “Breakdance” from Karoline<br />

Diebold and the “Geheimnisse des Orients” labyrinth<br />

from Moser. Moreover, the “Rio Rapidos” rafting ride<br />

from Siegfried Kaiser Jnr., which was already presented<br />

at the Osterplärrer 2012, will make another appearance<br />

in Augsburg before it makes its way on to the Munich<br />

Oktoberfest. Naturally, there will also be numerous kiddie<br />

rides and concession stalls within all sectors, and the<br />

gastronomic operations at the Plärrer will offer the usual<br />

spicy specialities and smooth, delicious beer. Opening<br />

hours at the Herbstplärrers: Monday to Friday from midday<br />

to 11 p.m., Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m.,<br />

and Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. By the way,<br />

according to official records, the first Herbstplärrer was<br />

held as far back as 1878 – thus the event is already 135<br />

years old.The Augsburg Plärrer on the Kleinen Exerzierplatz<br />

HISTORY<br />

A painting from the<br />

good old days: Showman<br />

Loosen touring the dodgem<br />

track<br />

On the occasion of the 375 th<br />

anniversary of the Düren Annakirmes,<br />

there were many additional<br />

events added to the usual<br />

line up. This most outstanding<br />

and popular event in the town’s<br />

calendar entices some 1 million<br />

visitors to the fairground on the<br />

Rur banks every year.<br />

Anniversary Annakirmes<br />

Exhibition: Showman Art<br />

The anniversary exhibition is<br />

still open up until the 18 th August<br />

To get the public attuned to the anniversary fair<br />

beginning on 27 th July, the Leopold-Hoesch-<br />

Museum in the Düren town centre presented a<br />

special exhibition. In the museum, many exhibits<br />

were effectively displayed on several floors. The<br />

exhibition, professionally laid out and operated<br />

down to the smallest detail, documented the life and<br />

work of the showmen in the last few centuries. The<br />

exhibits were put together from other museums,<br />

private collections and loans made available by the<br />

showmen. Moreover, private individuals displayed<br />

an ample selection of pictures. Outstanding exhibits<br />

were the Moppen booth (sweets) from 1935 and the<br />

28


historic Swing Boat from 1929. Old dodgem cars,<br />

mounts, artwork, carousel horses, figures and<br />

decoration elements take visitors on an interesting<br />

journey through time. Moreover, many historic<br />

photos from all sections of the showman industry<br />

were effectively presented. A number of old fairground<br />

models in various scales rounded off the<br />

well-worthwhile exhibition. In addition to the<br />

stationary objects, there were also moving pictures.<br />

In the exhibition rooms films from the Düren Annakirmes<br />

throughout the last few decades were<br />

presented, providing a 'goose pimply' atmosphere.<br />

Visitors were astounded by the attractions that have<br />

appeared in Düren throughout the past decades.<br />

Historic Fair<br />

Another highlight to mark the anniversary fair was a<br />

historic fair held around the Leopold-Hoesch-<br />

Museum from 28 th June to 7 th July. Rides presented<br />

were the “Selbstfahrer”, a nostalgic Chair-o-Plane,<br />

the “Moulin Rouge” show booth, a nostalgic Ferris<br />

Historic photos bring back<br />

memories of former attractions<br />

HISTORY<br />

Fun at the<br />

attractions. Particularly interesting was the kiddie<br />

carousel from the Katzschmann family from Mittweida<br />

in Saxony, which was presented in North-<br />

Rhine Westphalia for the first time. The Kirmes &<br />

<strong>Park</strong> Revue has already published a detailed report<br />

about this carousel. Nonetheless, its unique and<br />

lovingly made mounts are always well worth seeing.<br />

Even the original sandman made his rounds in a<br />

helicopter. One can only congratulate the town of<br />

Düren on both events, giving a first-class presentation<br />

of the history of the showman industry and the<br />

Düren Annakirmes.<br />

■<br />

Wheel, a Looping Swing and a Galloper. Games<br />

booths of that time, Hi-Strikers, historic vehicles,<br />

sweets and an organ rounded off the selection of<br />

The exhibition took<br />

old organs<br />

On the occasion of the 75 th anniversary of the<br />

Stuttgart Frühlingsfest this year, visitors were<br />

able to be taken on a journey through the<br />

history of the event as a result of a large<br />

number of loans provided by the showmen from<br />

the “Ländle”, as Baden-Württemberg is lovingly<br />

called by its residents. The Historic Wasen<br />

gave visitors free-of-charge insights into the<br />

history of the colourful and fascinating world of<br />

the showman industry.<br />

From 20 th April to 9 th May between 1 p.m. and 8<br />

p.m., visitors had the opportunity to get a look into<br />

the good old days and gather numerous impressions<br />

of the fairgrounds from the year dot. On an<br />

area of some 1,200 square metres, the showmen<br />

presented historic tractors and caravans, Galloper<br />

mounts, fairground organs, carousel decoration,<br />

advertising posters and an exhibition tent displaying<br />

snapshots and countless pictures. Most of<br />

them were black-and-white photos larded with<br />

many stories of showmen and their families.<br />

Wasen fans were also given an understanding of<br />

sound and informative details. The exhibition was<br />

very well received, and despite decreasing visitor<br />

numbers due to the weather, the Historic Wasen<br />

was a big success. Coming from the car park area,<br />

it was located directly at the entrance to the festival<br />

grounds, where a large number of pictures and<br />

photos on the fences enticed visitors to the exhibition.<br />

Passing through the festively decorated<br />

entrance gate, visitors found themselves in the<br />

middle of the exhibition. Immediately, their attention<br />

was drawn to a beautiful and well-kept<br />

“salon caravan” from Heinrich Mack, which showed<br />

the limited space showmen on tour used to live<br />

in. The caravan was built for the Rick firm from<br />

HISTORY<br />

Old mounts spread a<br />

nostalgic flair<br />

The way showmen lived<br />

earlier when touring<br />

Hannover in 1927, and was given to Roland Koch<br />

as a wedding present in the 1960s.<br />

Today his son Thomas Koch is the owner of this<br />

gem, which was lovingly restored and is not<br />

exhibited very often. Various historic fairground<br />

organs accompanied the event with their classic<br />

tunes. A special example was placed in the<br />

entrance area of the tent. It was built by the Ruth<br />

und Sohn firm and presented itself in perfect<br />

condition. Both older and younger visitors lingered<br />

and stayed in front of it for a long time to listen to<br />

the music.<br />

The large number of tractors and traction units<br />

were also much admired and examined. On show<br />

were several different examples once used to<br />

transport the attractions from one fairground to<br />

another. Among the typical showman traction units<br />

from that time numbered, for example, the 40-HP<br />

Hanomag R40, built in 1948 and the 1950s Deutz<br />

built by the Klöckner-Humboldt-Deutz AG, which is<br />

lovingly preserved and cared for by Robert Lehmann.<br />

A visual highlight was the Lanz Bulldog HR<br />

7 from 1939. Another much admired vehicle was a<br />

Kramer all-wheel-drive, still requiring some restoration.<br />

Panels provided a lot more information than<br />

only HP, drive and braking systems. In the outside<br />

area, there was a number of more modern traction<br />

units used for transport to this very day, such as an<br />

MB Actros 1851 from the showman enterprise<br />

Joachim Kritz & Sohn.<br />

Tradition continued inside the festival tent, where<br />

several precious objects and many requisites were<br />

exhibited, showing the history of the showman<br />

industry from the 19 th century to this day. Moreover,<br />

a number of old dodgem track chaises, swing<br />

boats, wooden horses, and historic, original front<br />

HISTORY<br />

Tradition continues in<br />

the festival tent<br />

An aerial view of the<br />

Wasen in the 70s<br />

parts with the name sign “Der wilde Weinberg”<br />

could be admired. Many pictures on the walls<br />

showed the development of the dodgem tracks<br />

and also different Switchbacks, which used to be<br />

built only from wood. Also exhibited were some<br />

modern ride and funhouse attractions, which<br />

provided an appealing contrast. The king-sized<br />

“showman book” containing photos of regional<br />

showman families and their ride attractions may<br />

well have been a unique exhibit. A lot of background<br />

information on different showman generations,<br />

valuable information about the years the<br />

individual attractions were bought right up to today<br />

– everything was listed in chronological order.<br />

There was even a detailed overview of the number<br />

of Ghost rides from the Lehmann family. In addition<br />

to the “Geister Schlange” known today, photos of<br />

the “Geister Grotte”, the “Geister Schlucht”, and<br />

the “Geister Burg” documented the host of attractions<br />

from the family enterprise. Moreover, there<br />

were many photos from the Fritz Kinzler family,<br />

regularly presenting current and breath-taking<br />

rides in Stuttgart, ranging from the “Ski Lift”<br />

purchased in 1963, the “Jumbo Jet” from 1970, the<br />

“Looping Star” (1978), the “Korkenzieher-Achterbahn”,<br />

and the “Heartbreaker” (1980) to the<br />

current “Breakdance No. 1”. In addition to the ride<br />

and funhouse attractions there were also pictures<br />

from many a snack and sweets booth.<br />

The Historic Wasen was a successful exhibition<br />

with many relics and documents from the good old<br />

days, mainly collected and arranged by the showmen<br />

Stefan Kinzler, Joachim Kritz, Nico Lustenauer,<br />

and Roland Maier.<br />

GASTRONOMY<br />

SLUSH & EIS FACTORY<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Norman Vogt<br />

New: The “Slush & Eis<br />

Factory” from Jasmin Scherrle<br />

At the Würzburg Frühjahrsvolksfest,<br />

Jasmin Scherrle from Stuttgart<br />

opened her new “Slush &<br />

Eis Factory” attraction. After the<br />

so-called “pre-opening” in<br />

Würzburg, the attraction was<br />

officially inaugurated at the subsequent<br />

venue, the Frühlingsfest<br />

in Stuttgart.<br />

The young woman has been touring<br />

as an independent showwoman<br />

for nine years now. Four<br />

generations of her family have already<br />

travelled with ice cream wagons to many prestigious<br />

events throughout the entire federal territory.<br />

The new sales wagon was built by the Dietz firm<br />

according to the suggestions and ideas of the customer.<br />

Its modern visual appearance with ice cream<br />

and slush motifs in the front area is highly appealing,<br />

and the gearwheels in the upper front area, emphasizing<br />

the “factory” theme, are an eye catcher. After sundown,<br />

the LED and neon lighting make a very harmonious<br />

impression, and the interior lighting of the<br />

“Slush & Eis Factory” is equipped with day and night<br />

mode settings. For the first time, the Dietz firm has incorporated<br />

a remote-controlled “Mover-System”,<br />

retracting both axles into an attraction. As a result, the<br />

sales wagon can be hydraulically lowered to the<br />

ground without a problem. Apart from various types of<br />

ice cream, the product range also includes the<br />

“Factory Twister Eis” which can optionally be mixed<br />

with Smarties, roasted almonds, biscuits or fresh fruits<br />

in a kind of shaker. Also offered are refreshing slush<br />

drinks in many flavours and different sizes. The<br />

première in Stuttgart was followed by appearances in<br />

Freiburg, Nördlingen, Pforzheim and Würzburg. This<br />

season, Jasmin Scherrle will present her new attraction<br />

in, among other venues, Hof, Crailsheim and at the<br />

Cannstatt Wasen in Stuttgart. The wagon has ground<br />

measurements of 7 x 3.50 metres, a height of 6.20<br />

metres, and a power demand of 20 kW.<br />

Thomas Schmidt from Bremen<br />

opened in November last year<br />

his rustic style mobile bar<br />

"Waldhütte" built by the Dietz<br />

Fahrzeugbau firm, at the new<br />

Mannheim "Märschenwald"<br />

Christmas Market.<br />

The attraction which naturally is<br />

also used on Volksfests and other events, is built as<br />

a container on a wagon, is hydraulically folded, and<br />

offers place for up to 20 guests. Standing and<br />

sitting possibilities invite visitors to linger<br />

and enjoy. The sitting area is comfortable<br />

with stools that are covered with artificial fur<br />

that emphasis the flair of a "forest hut". The<br />

outside area during the première in Mannheim<br />

was orientated on the theme "fairytale<br />

forest" with the roof windows installed at an<br />

angle.<br />

Moose "Manni" quickly became the public's darling,<br />

humming lively songs from under the roof. ■<br />

EXOTIC<br />

Since summer 2012 in<br />

Germany: Nickel’s<br />

“Fliegender Teppich”<br />

In the summer of 2012, Romano<br />

Nickel from Ingelheim took over<br />

a “Fliegender Teppich” ("Flying<br />

Carpet") from the Schäfer family<br />

from Switzerland. In Germany,<br />

this ride type is primarily associated<br />

with the construction of<br />

the same name built by Zierer.<br />

The “Fliegende Teppich” from<br />

Nickel, however, was built by the<br />

former Italian manufacturer SDC<br />

– and thereby is a truly exotic<br />

ride.<br />

Flying Carpet<br />

Text & Photos: Norman Vogt<br />

Romano Nickel with his<br />

partner Jessica Frankholz<br />

Under the management of its previous owner<br />

Schäfer, the ride built in 1984 was a very<br />

popular guest at many events in Switzerland, and<br />

that was one of the reasons why he remained true to<br />

it for almost 30 years. The SDC attraction is slightly<br />

similar in construction to the carpet version created<br />

by the German Fähtz firm. In contrast to other<br />

carpet examples, its gondola accommodating 40<br />

people is completely roofed. The ride was built onto<br />

two trailers, which are incorporated into the<br />

construction. Building up the 20 x 8 metre construction,<br />

which according to the manufacturer has<br />

electrical requirements of 180 kW and a height of 14<br />

metres, requires a small crane. The backflash,<br />

featuring typical oriental motifs from the Arabian<br />

Nights legend, comes from the 1980s. The missing<br />

name sign is currently being rewired and is to be<br />

mounted in the near future.<br />

EXOTIC<br />

As a special feature, the<br />

gondola accommodating 40<br />

people is roofed over<br />

For Romano Nickel, who<br />

operates the attraction together<br />

with his partner Jessica<br />

Frankholz, it is the first ride that<br />

the couple have owned. After<br />

the takeover last year, the<br />

attraction was built up on the<br />

premises before it was presented at a small event in<br />

Bendorf for the first time. Behind the backflash,<br />

there are two electrical control boxes holding the<br />

entire electronic control system for the ride sequence<br />

and the lighting system. Both drive motors<br />

are located on the two supports, to which the arms<br />

are mounted. In addition to other planned changes,<br />

the backflash is also to be newly painted before too<br />

long. By the way, the gap in the backflash originally<br />

used to be the exit. Nowadays however, passengers<br />

embark and disembark in the front section.<br />

While it takes one day to build up, dismantling is<br />

accomplished within 7 to 8 hours. Romano Nickel will<br />

tour this Italian version of the “Fliegender Teppich”<br />

mainly throughout South-West Germany. ■ Side view during the<br />

KIDDIE RIDES<br />

Robert Hoffmann’s<br />

new purchase: the kiddie<br />

ride “Abenteuerland”<br />

At the Wurzen Frühlingsfest,<br />

showman Robert Hoffmann from<br />

Schkeuditz presented his newly<br />

purchased used kiddie track ride<br />

“Abenteuerland” for the first<br />

time.<br />

Diana Neutzsch<br />

In October 2011, Robert Hoffmann founded his<br />

own showman business with the “Formel 1<br />

Monaco” kiddie track ride he took over from his<br />

grandfather, showman Hans Dieter Splitt. Originally,<br />

this kiddie ride had been a kiddie dodgem track<br />

built by the Ihle firm in Bruchsal for the showman<br />

enterprise Levi/Stoner. In the early 1980s, the<br />

kiddie dodgem track was rebuilt into a kiddie track<br />

ride by a ride manufacturer in Spain, with the track<br />

and the course platform being integrated into the<br />

former dodgem track. After its completion, the<br />

“Formel 1 Monaco” caused a veritable 'kiddie track<br />

ride boom' in Germany, together with the “Zauberwelt”<br />

from the Levy showman enterprise, the first<br />

kiddie track ride touring throughout Germany,<br />

which had also been rebuilt from a kiddie dodgem<br />

track in Spain. The Levy/Stoner firm operated the<br />

kiddie ride for about 7 years before it was taken<br />

over by Hans Dieter Splitt in the early 1990s, who<br />

went on to successfully operate the construction<br />

for more than 20 years. After the takeover, Robert<br />

Hoffmann loaded the kiddie track ride on a threeaxle<br />

roller. Due to the lack of space, he occasionally<br />

builds up the construction without a roof, which<br />

is quite risky though, as water finds its way into the<br />

upper track in rain. “Formel 1 Monaco” has ground<br />

measurements of 18.5 x 10 metres and electrical<br />

requirements of 40 kW.<br />

Takeover at the Beginning of 2013<br />

Early this year, Robert Hoffmann took over the<br />

“Abenteuerland” kiddie track ride, built for the<br />

Augsburg showman Josef Diebold by the Dietz<br />

firm in Schwalmstadt in 1997, in order to be more<br />

KIDDIE RIDES<br />

“Formel 1 Monaco”<br />

is presented without a roof<br />

flexible on tour and to expand his business. As the<br />

construction was handed over in first-class<br />

condition, no technical or visual overhaul was required.<br />

It will not be long though before several<br />

additional decoration elements will be mounted, to<br />

give the kiddie track ride a distinctly personal<br />

touch. Due to a staff and baggage container being<br />

built on an interchangeable flat-bed unit hauled by<br />

a traction unit, relocating the kiddie track ride requires<br />

only one transport. Robert Hoffmann presents<br />

the two kiddie track rides together with his<br />

girlfriend Diana Neutzsch, mainly at Volksfest<br />

events in Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, Thuringia and<br />

Brandenburg. “Abenteuerland” has ground<br />

measurements of 14 x 7.5 metres and electrical<br />

requirements of 40 kW.<br />

SALZBURG<br />

Text & Photo: Claudia Castellazzi<br />

Over the years, the Salzburg Dult, known as the<br />

largest Volksfest in Western Austria, has become a<br />

well-established event. This year, the event celebrated<br />

a special anniversary, namely, the 40 th Dult<br />

held in the Salzburg exhibition centre, where everything<br />

was dedicated to a fair section, festival halls,<br />

market merchants, partying and numerous special<br />

events for nine days, from 18 th to 26 th May.<br />

Despite the sometimes rainy and stormy weather, the<br />

event enticed 131,000 visitors, much to the delight of<br />

the organiser, “Our region is not frightened off by low<br />

temperatures!” This year, a long procession with more<br />

than 650 members of the association followed by an<br />

opening ceremony with 500 guests of honour directly<br />

at the fairground heralded the beginning of the Salzburg<br />

Volksfest. Even this opening march through the<br />

medieval city centre caused a furore, due not least to<br />

the large number of spectators. It's not for nothing that<br />

the Salzburg Dult is known as the largest Volksfest in<br />

Western Austria, as visitors were not only awaited by<br />

more than 160 showmen, market merchants and<br />

booths, but also enthralled by a well-thought-out and<br />

attractive supporting programme for nine days, be it<br />

the Traditional Costumes Day, Family Day, Fire Brigade<br />

Day, Seniors' Day, or the Country Weekend held on the<br />

second Dult weekend. The Dult organisers succeeded<br />

in attracting all kinds of target groups to the festival<br />

area and in creating a real synergy between the<br />

festival halls, fairground and market hall. Particularly<br />

well-received by the exhibitors and the showmen were<br />

the promotional tools with a voucher booklet, the expanded<br />

family programme and the company events.<br />

As a result, fixed bookings for the Dult from renowned<br />

companies could be extended and increased. “We<br />

owe the large number of bookings to the reopened<br />

market hall with free entry, the good live musical acts,<br />

the culinary delicacies inside the festival halls and the<br />

frenetic sales talks in the run-up to the Dult,” said<br />

Michaela Glinz, in charge of the Dult, which will be held<br />

from 7 th to 15 th June next year.<br />

■<br />

NEUWIED<br />

The fairground was more<br />

appealing than in the previous<br />

years<br />

Text & Photo: Michael Petersen<br />

The Heddesdorf Pfingstkirmes, held from 17 th to<br />

21 st May this year, combines ancient customs with<br />

a modern fair event. Every year, the well-known<br />

and popular event entices not only the residents,<br />

but also many guests from the surrounding<br />

towns, to the Pfingstwiese-fairground.<br />

It must be said though, that the unpaved fairground<br />

is in a desolate condition. For some years now the<br />

showmen have fought in vain for improved<br />

conditions of the fairground, but due to empty<br />

coffers there is unlikely to be any improvement in the<br />

near future. Moreover, there have been ongoing rumours<br />

that due to a garden show, the complete area,<br />

or at least a large part of it, will fairly soon no longer<br />

be available for events. For the second time now the<br />

fair event already began on the Friday before Pentecost,<br />

and closed on the following Tuesday evening.<br />

To mark the traditional opening on Saturday, the Heddesdorf<br />

fraternity and the Pfingstreiter (Pentecost<br />

Riders) invited the public to the “Nobersch Bank”,<br />

whereas the second part of the opening was<br />

celebrated on the fairground afterwards. Two heavy<br />

horses drew a decorated festival wagon followed by<br />

the Pfingstreiter Burschenschaften (Pentecost Rider<br />

fraternities), local politicians, the showmen and<br />

many guests. Afterwards, the event was officially<br />

opened by the Mayor tapping the keg and the traditional<br />

cannon salute. The closing day was once<br />

again completely dedicated to the Pfingstreiter. At 10<br />

a.m. they set out for the Pfingstritt (Pentecost Ride)<br />

at the “Vadderdach” on Bimsstraße, from where they<br />

first ride to Rommersdorf and then on to Engers,<br />

where the riders collect their tribute around noon.<br />

This way, an ancient tradition of the Heddesdorf<br />

fraternities and the Engers Bürgerverein (Engers<br />

resident association) is preserved. Too bad though<br />

that the Pfingstreiter do not celebrate their own party<br />

42


with music, dancing, and food and drink on the<br />

Pfingstwiese-fairground.<br />

This year’s Pentecost Fair was much more attractive<br />

than in the last few years, with some 70 showmen<br />

presenting their attractions on the 15,000-m 2 fairground.<br />

Most prominent among them were the cosy<br />

beer gardens, which were very well received.<br />

The area was effectively laid out as a classic circuit<br />

course. The “Movie Star” Ferris Wheel (Henschel)<br />

provided its passengers with a perfect view of the<br />

attractions offered, namely the “Spinning Racer”<br />

coaster (Bruch), “Circus Circus” (Bruch/Gründler),<br />

“High” (Oberschelp), “Flash” (Weber), “Turbo Force”<br />

(Schäfer), and Dodgem Track (Meyer). With the<br />

“Pirates Adventure” (Schneider), “Remmi Demmi”<br />

(Janßen), “Panic Room” (Lemoine), and the “Motodrom”<br />

(Ganslmeier), there was something of a<br />

surfeit of attractions from the show and fun sector.<br />

The event was intensively and prominently advertised,<br />

with large advertising billboards being put up<br />

mainly in the more frequented areas. Well worth<br />

praising was the advertising campaign organised by<br />

the showmen Lanser, Schunk, Bruch and Meyer in<br />

the Neuwied and Heddesdorf pedestrian precincts,<br />

where 90 large gingerbread hearts placed in the<br />

retailers’ shop windows promoted the Pentecost Fair.<br />

The stakes for next year's event are quite high now.<br />

However, visitor numbers proved that the Pentecost<br />

Fair certainly presents strong potential. The challenge<br />

now is to keep up the standard achieved. ■<br />

SCHIFFERSTADT<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Norman Vogt<br />

Schifferstadt is located in the Rhine-Neckar metropolis<br />

region, in the heart of the Central Palatinate.<br />

Every year in early June, the 20,000-resident town celebrates<br />

its Rettichfest, or Radish Festival. The name<br />

comes from the fact that Schifferstadt is one of the<br />

largest radish growing areas in Germany. This year,<br />

the festival began on 31 st May and ended on 4 th June.<br />

After the opening, the supporting programme, which<br />

changes daily, offered an ample choice of events once<br />

again this year. Be it the traditional Rettichlauf on Saturday,<br />

the open shopping Sunday, or the Family Day on<br />

the last opening day, they all spurred visitors to take part.<br />

Unfortunately, this was not reflected by the showmen’s<br />

revenues, which were given as quite poor at the close of<br />

the event. However, this was not new for the participating<br />

showmen, who have experienced a steady decrease<br />

in visitor numbers and therefore also in turnover, for some<br />

time now. However, it must be said that the promotion of<br />

the event was woefully inadequate; one would imagine<br />

that a respectable placement of advertising in the local<br />

press and a satisfactory poster promotion would have<br />

been quite “manageable”. On the fairground a number<br />

of appealing ride attractions was presented once again.<br />

For the second time, Wingender’s “Air Crash” appeared<br />

in Schifferstadt. In addition to a nostalgic dodgem track<br />

visitors encountered the “Himalaya” Switchback from<br />

Michael Spangenberger as well as the “Break Dance”<br />

(Spangenberger). The younger visitors enjoyed two<br />

classic rides and a bungee construction, and the fairground<br />

was replete with booths and stalls. ■<br />

OBERHAUSEN-STERKRADE<br />

Text: Michael Petersen<br />

Photos: Nils Benthien<br />

The opening day of this year’s Sterkrade Fronleichnamskirmes,<br />

held from 29 th May to 3 rd June,<br />

suffered from heavy rainfall. The fairground holy<br />

eve, highly popular with the Sterkrade citizens,<br />

was “washed away”. Heavy downpours and<br />

autumn temperatures spoiled the usually happy<br />

fairground atmosphere.<br />

Nevertheless, a few tireless visitors met at “their”<br />

beverage stalls and resolutely remained there, as<br />

only very few visitors wanted to stroll across the fairground.<br />

While the gastronomic operations attained<br />

at least some revenues, the other participants earned<br />

hardly any money at all. Rain was followed by<br />

sunshine though, and the fairground was virtually<br />

besieged by masses of visitors on Thursday. From<br />

the city and from all over the Ruhr region visitors<br />

rushed to the Sterkrade district to happily celebrate.<br />

The rides operated to the limits of<br />

their capacity and the sales stalls<br />

and gastronomic operations were<br />

quite crowded. On Corpus<br />

Christi Day, not only did the sky<br />

brighten up but also the mood of<br />

the showmen. In the following<br />

days, Sterkrade was spared any<br />

rainfall and the fairground was<br />

very well attended. Therefore,<br />

the review of the fair was quite<br />

positive. According to the organiser,<br />

visitor attendance was up on<br />

the previous year, exceeding the<br />

one million mark. However, the<br />

financial results achieved are<br />

much more important than visitor<br />

numbers.<br />

The largely successful layout of<br />

the Corpus Christi Day Fair<br />

matched up to expectations. The<br />

novelty attraction “Alpen-Hotel” would certainly<br />

have been more effective on a top-end site though.<br />

Markmann’s “Octopussy” was built up on the site<br />

where the “Krake” has already made successful<br />

appearances several times. Due to this arrangement,<br />

the attraction could not provide a novelty<br />

effect however. With only one side of the ramp between<br />

the market and the station being occupied<br />

this year, this area was better presented and less<br />

crowded. The fair attractions usually being presented<br />

in this area were built up near the station this time.<br />

Also interesting were corresponding entries in the<br />

fairground forums on the Internet, which revealed<br />

the common desire for a changed layout of the fairground.<br />

The market and the Hirschhügel fairgrounds<br />

were particularly criticised. Some one<br />

million visitors seemed not to be bothered, however.<br />

From Thursday they celebrated the traditional<br />

Corpus Christi Day Fair with the benefit of perfect<br />

weather.<br />

BIELEFELD<br />

A LOOK BACK<br />

Text & Photo:<br />

Nils Benthien<br />

From 24 th to 26 th May, the 40 th Leineweber-Markt took<br />

place in the Bielefeld city centre. The city festival<br />

was held for the first time in 1974, when it marked<br />

three occasions; namely, the 25 th anniversary of the<br />

German Basic Law, the visit of then Federal<br />

President Gustav Heinemann and the beginning of<br />

a Berlin Week for showmen, trade and gastronomy.<br />

Since 1975, the city festival is called “Leineweber-<br />

Markt”.<br />

The three-day event is organised by the Bielefeld<br />

Marketing GmbH. On six stages and three action<br />

areas, more than 1,000 actors offered a first class programme.<br />

The colourful mixture of live music, street magicians,<br />

acrobats and fairground attractions, as well as<br />

the offering of many interesting delicacies, was well<br />

received by the visitors. While a nostalgic market with<br />

Nessel’s horse carousel and the nostalgic Ferris Wheel<br />

from Feldmann was held on Jahnplatz, Krause’s Musik-<br />

Express and the “Formel 1” dodgem track (Schneider)<br />

awaited the public at the city hall. At the Kunsthalle the<br />

“Movie Star” Ferris Wheel from Henschel provided<br />

visitors with a view across Bielefeld, and the Jodokus<br />

Kirchplatz accommodated a medieval market for the<br />

first time. The younger visitors were able to enjoy a<br />

pony ride, walking-waterballs and various kiddie rides<br />

built up in the city centre. A number of sweet stalls,<br />

games and sales booths rounded of the entertainment<br />

contingent. Unfortunately, the planned target of<br />

300,000 visitors was not achieved. According to the<br />

organiser, adverse weather conditions – continuous<br />

rain and low temperatures – resulted in noticeably<br />

fewer visitors coming to the 40 th Leineweber-Markt. ■<br />

HALVER<br />

Text & Photo: Michael Petersen<br />

“Things never turn out the way you expect” – a<br />

saying that perfectly defines the changed selection<br />

of attractions presented at the Halver Kirmes<br />

(31 st May to 3 rd June). There were significant<br />

changes in the list of participants published by the<br />

Halver city authorities, due to the cancellation at<br />

short notice by the rafting ride and three other previously<br />

announced attractions.<br />

With neither the “Tornado”, “Scheibenwischer” and<br />

“Sky-Flyer”, nor the “Raftingbahn” (heralded as the<br />

main attraction to appear at Halver), the usually<br />

perfectly laid out fairground offered noticeable failings<br />

this time. Bonner’s “Breakdance”, the newly<br />

added “Twister” from Freiwald, and the “Sky Glider”<br />

(Prumbaum) for example, were built up in direct<br />

vicinity to each other on limited space, while no large<br />

ride attraction at all was presented on Hauptstraße.<br />

The “Miami” from Freiwald stepped in as a replacement<br />

on the site in front of Sparkasse building, with<br />

Weber’s “Rocket” taking its passengers high up to the<br />

sky on the top-end site. Built up in the area of the<br />

former railway station were the “Drive in” dodgem<br />

track (Schmidt) and the “Booster” (Havermann-Spelbrink).<br />

Moreover, visitors were able to enjoy the<br />

Simulator and once again the Musik Express from<br />

Wendler erected on the former loading platform, with<br />

the Musik Express being partially hidden by the<br />

large “Happy Family” Funhouse from Heine. Built up<br />

with its narrow side facing the circuit, the latter was<br />

not very effective though; certainly an avoidable layout<br />

misjudgement.<br />

Cancellations and Layout Misjudgement<br />

In short, there were many inconsistencies in Halver.<br />

Not everything can be excused<br />

by cancellations, however.<br />

One would be well-advised<br />

not to contract ride attractions<br />

that are not already on<br />

tour!<br />

Due to good weather conditions,<br />

the showmen - who also<br />

benefited from the slightly<br />

lower number of ride attractions<br />

offered - achieved<br />

satisfying results. One can<br />

only hope that Halver will be<br />

spared from cancellations<br />

next year so that the citycentre<br />

fair can be laid out<br />

according to its usual quality<br />

standard.<br />

Text & Photos: Helmut Bresler<br />

Even prior to the event the arrangement was just<br />

perfect, promising the most attractive fairground<br />

for years, a new and reliable beer tent operator, as<br />

well as the “Oberfrankenausstellung” consumer<br />

fair with free entry. However, rainfall and low temperatures<br />

quickly shattered all hopes for an outstanding<br />

and enjoyable event.<br />

In the end, Jan Kempgens and Marc Ermer from the organising<br />

“Bayreuth Marketing & Tourismus GmbH” were<br />

quite disappointed, as the dismal weather gave rise to<br />

disastrous results. They were however quite satisfied<br />

with the choice of the new beer tent patron, Jochen Mörz<br />

from Allgäu, who really hit it off well with the people in<br />

Upper Franconia. His daughter Nadine Mörz, in charge<br />

of the organization and management, enthused about<br />

a cooperative partnership lasting well into the future.<br />

While the strong demand for food, especially for traditional<br />

hax'n spiced pork and cheese was a surprise for<br />

her, she was at the same time critical of the burgeoning<br />

choice of snack booths on the fairground. Jan Kempgens,<br />

for whom it was his eleventh Volksfest as the fifth<br />

beer tent patron, understandably hopes for a more permanent<br />

solution with regard to the participating publicans.<br />

Although there was no Ferris Wheel on the fairground,<br />

it was nonetheless the most common motif in all<br />

advertising media. The fairground was characterised<br />

by three major rides; namely, Goetzke’s “Star Flyer”,<br />

Ahrend’s “Flasher” and “Der Burner” from Zinnecker, as<br />

well as Vorlop’s large coaster “Rock & Roller”. The show<br />

and fun sector was conspicuously represented by the<br />

boxing booth from Lemoine-Heinen, Fellerhoff’s<br />

“Geisterstadt”, Hofmann-Jehn’s “Freddy’s Company”,<br />

and Kinzler’s “Omni”. Highly successful was the festival<br />

procession at the beginning of the event, which is growing<br />

ever longer and boasting more participants every<br />

year. Both the opening fireworks display on Friday and<br />

the one held at the finale on the eleventh opening day<br />

were accompanied by rainfall. What a pity.<br />

WUPPERTAL<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Michael Petersen<br />

The second Wuppertal Mega Fair was held with<br />

the benefit of almost impeccable fairground<br />

weather from 7 th to 10 th June. Several thousands<br />

of visitors rushed to the stadium at the zoo to<br />

celebrate a peaceful, four-day Volksfest event.<br />

“It was a peaceful family event that exceeded all our<br />

expectations,” Peter Fuhrmann, Chairman of the<br />

Wuppertal Showman Association summarized the 2 nd<br />

Wuppertal Mega Fair in his review. The Showman<br />

Association did not rest on its laurels with regard to<br />

the success of the première fair, but further increased<br />

the already high advertising budget, particularly as<br />

the novelty effect of the fairground had already been<br />

exhausted. Preparations for the 2 nd edition of the event<br />

began right after last year’s fair. The event was once<br />

again scheduled for the second Sunday after Corpus<br />

Christi Day, immediately after the Sterkrade<br />

Fronleichnamskirmes. In response to popular<br />

demand a section of the additional football pitch was<br />

also built up on this time. Preparations for the Wuppertal<br />

fair focussed on extensive advertising<br />

measures including 650 posters, huge displays put up<br />

at the cable car stations and 31 commercials on the<br />

local radio stations, as well as advertisements placed<br />

in the Westdeutsche Zeitung newspaper. The event<br />

was closely covered by the Wuppertal press and radio<br />

stations even during the build up, and was even<br />

covered live from the fairground by the regional WDR<br />

television station in its series “Lokalzeit Bergisch<br />

Land”. From some 500 applications received after the<br />

invitation for tender, 100 of them arriving only two<br />

weeks before the opening, it was possible to engage<br />

the “Spinning Racer” from Bruch as the main attraction.<br />

Thus a large coaster eventually came to the<br />

‘cable car city’ once again after a break of 30 years.<br />

The coaster quickly turned into the promotional<br />

emblem for the fair, soaring 55-metres high up into the<br />

sky in close proximity to the cable car from Tuesday<br />

on.<br />

The area on the Wupper was successfully laid out<br />

once again, with the “Pirates Adventure” (Schneider)<br />

and the “Venezianische Pferdekarussell” (Langenberg)<br />

built up directly in front of the cable car station.<br />

The first site inside the stadium accommodated the<br />

“Kettenflieger” (Fuhrmann), “Booster Maxxx G4”<br />

(Hoefnagels/Denies), a kiddie carousel, and the<br />

“Circus Circus” from Bruch/Gründler. The “Saturn-<br />

Flieger” from Bauer was once again placed in front of<br />

the stadium stand, and in the section constituted by<br />

the additional football pitch, visitors encountered a<br />

kiddie ride and the mega “Konga” Swing from Küchenmeister<br />

- another novelty for Wuppertal - and the<br />

aforementioned “Spinning Racer” Coaster caused<br />

quite a furore directly on the pitch. Also presented at<br />

the event was the Simulator from Sterzenbach.<br />

Novelties to be admired among the concession stalls<br />

were Plesser’s Brezel, von der Gathen’s Arcade<br />

Machine, Ritter’s Bar and “Marktplatz Nr. 1”, to name<br />

but a few. The opening day turned out to be a the first<br />

highlight, with the crowd quickly filling the fairground<br />

even in the afternoon, leaving barely any room to<br />

move for the new synchronous fireworks display in the<br />

evening. Saturday however suffered from the hot<br />

weather, which kept visitors from attending the fairground.<br />

On Sunday, the fairground was once again<br />

well frequented, just as on the Family Day on Monday.<br />

The second Wuppertal Mega Fair was opened by DSB<br />

President Albert Ritter. Throughout the quiet event the<br />

police did not have to deal with any fights, thefts, or<br />

damage to property. There were not even any<br />

complaints about the noise and positively worth<br />

mentioning was the fact that showmen left the fairground<br />

well-swept and clean.<br />

Summary: a four-day family-friendly fair without any<br />

unpleasant incidents, ideal fairground weather, satisfied<br />

showmen, and enthralled visitors. Truly, the 2 nd<br />

Wuppertal Mega Fair was real fun! All in all, the costly<br />

advertising measures, almost reaching the financial<br />

limits of the Showman Association, have paid off in<br />

numerous ways, bringing the event into the gaze of<br />

the Wuppertal public for this one, fun week. ■<br />

popular attractions in Mainz<br />

Text & Photos: Norman Vogt<br />

Those who think that carnival is the only event<br />

happily celebrated in Mainz are quite wrong. The<br />

Johannisnacht event, which was held from 21 st to<br />

24 th June this year, is highly popular with the<br />

“Meenern” - as Mainz residents are affectionately<br />

called. Therefore it is not surprising that the city<br />

centre and the banks of the Rhine are buzzing with<br />

activity and that the party goes on far into the night<br />

for four days.<br />

Not only locals like to go to their festival, but indeed<br />

people come from all over the entire greater region to<br />

join in an excess of fun and frolics. Undoubtedly, the<br />

fact that some 500,000 visitors are welcomed to the 4-<br />

day event every year speaks for itself. The Johannisnacht<br />

is organised by the Mainz city authorities, who<br />

also choose the attractions presented at its largest fair<br />

event every year. The event offered a harmonious<br />

mixture once again, and this year enjoyed sunny, dry<br />

weather and pleasant temperatures. Therefore it was<br />

no wonder that visitors rushed to the festival area and<br />

enjoyed the fine entertainment contingent.<br />

On the Saturday evening there was barely any room<br />

left in the city area and visitors had to have a lot of time<br />

and patience. The programme offered typical Johannisnacht<br />

attractions, such as the jolly and watery<br />

“printers baptism”, also known as Gautschen (an<br />

ancient trade guild custom, according to which the<br />

sins of the years of apprenticeship and the lead dust<br />

is washed off), as well as theatre, cabaret, jugglers, live<br />

musical acts on six stages, the cabaret night, the<br />

Johannis book market and the artist market on the<br />

banks of the Rhine.<br />

Among the ride and funhouse attractions spread along<br />

the banks of the Rhine and in the city centre, were a<br />

number of novelties to be tried out. Zinnecker’s “Der<br />

Burner”, with long queues forming in front of its<br />

operator stand after sundown numbered among the<br />

most spectacular among them. Another new feature<br />

and also very well frequented was Fellerhoff’s “Geisterstadt”<br />

attraction, which provided a creepy atmosphere<br />

and was built up in Mainz for the first time.<br />

Göbel’s Ferris Wheel, numbered among the regular<br />

guests in Mainz, as did the “Super-Wellenflug”, which<br />

provided visitors with a magnificent view across the<br />

Rhine. The selection of attractions built up on the<br />

banks of the Rhine was rounded off by Sottile’s<br />

“Simulator”, Barth’s “Skooter“, Wingender’s “Break<br />

Dance” and various kiddie rides. In the city centre,<br />

visitors encountered further kiddie rides, as well as the<br />

“Aqua Velis” Walkthrough construction from Hofmann<br />

and the “Show Time” show booth from Haas, which<br />

was slightly hidden away and could not be discovered<br />

at first glance. Well worth seeing was the fireworks<br />

display on the Rhine, which was held on Monday and<br />

heralded the closing of the 46 th Johannisnacht event.<br />

The festival was a great success for all the participants,<br />

and after the long, lean period with snow, rain and low<br />

temperatures in spring, satisfying financial results<br />

were eventually achieved again. “I would not mind if<br />

this went on up until the Christmas Markets,” said a<br />

good-humoured ride owner – starting up his fully<br />

occupied ride.<br />

WERNIGERODE<br />

Text & Photo:<br />

Rolf Orschel<br />

The Summer Festival in the “colourful town in the<br />

Harz Uplands” located at the foot of Mount<br />

Brocken, was held from 1 st to 9 th June under the<br />

management of Mario Siewiera from Quedlinburg.<br />

After a promising start, the public’s interest in the<br />

event noticeably dwindled after Family Day.<br />

What does the popular tourist destination with its wellpreserved<br />

historic town centre and its elaborately<br />

restored timber-framed houses offer? The well-known<br />

sights, such as the town hall on the market square -<br />

which was officially documented for the first time in<br />

1277 and ranks among the most beautiful town halls<br />

in Europe - the leaning house, the smallest house, the<br />

oldest house and the castle, the latter majestically<br />

enthroned above the town, entice masses of<br />

domestic and foreign guests at any time of the year.<br />

While there were pushing crowds in the pedestrian<br />

precinct at the time of our visit on the second Saturday,<br />

the fairground on the castle car park in Halberstädter<br />

Straße (properly paved) only a few minutes’<br />

walk away, was not really such a crowd puller. Due to<br />

generally low visitor attendance, the showmen have<br />

not attached great importance to the Volksfest events<br />

in Wernigerode for some time now. As a result, it was<br />

no surprise that only three large attractions were presented<br />

this year; namely, Hermann’s “Magic”, Welte’s<br />

“Jaguar” and the labyrinth “Atlantis – Die versunkene<br />

Stadt” (Siewiera/Drechsler). The younger visitors were<br />

able to enjoy Eckermann’s kiddie railway, the kiddie<br />

track ride from Pönitz, and the horse carousel from<br />

Drechsler/Siewiera. Moreover, a Continental Pick<br />

stand, a bowling alley, a ball throwing stall and a<br />

shooting gallery were built up in the circuit course,<br />

along with two snack booths and a sweets stall that<br />

provided visitors with food and drinks. Despite the low<br />

number of visitors during the second half of the<br />

summer festival, the participating showmen fared<br />

quite well due to relatively short journeys. ■<br />

58 operators enticed<br />

visitors to the festival grounds<br />

on Niederwerner Straße<br />

Text & Photos: Helmut Bresler<br />

On the eleventh and final opening day of the largest<br />

Volksfest event in Lower Franconia, the showmen<br />

were well satisfied with their financial results.<br />

After bitter disappointments at previous events,<br />

such as in Erlangen and Bayreuth, business proved<br />

much better in Schweinfurt.<br />

With 58 attractions - among them “real highlights”,<br />

such as Bruch’s “Alpina-Bahn”, Blume’s “Tower Event<br />

Center” and Lehmann’s “Geister-Schlange” - the fairground<br />

on Niederwerrner Straße was well occupied.<br />

Moreover, the Ahrend firm had built up its “Flasher” for<br />

particularly daring visitors. The Bavarian State Exhibition,<br />

under the motto “Main and Sea”, will entice<br />

visitors to the 'city of ball bearings' up until October,<br />

and for Frank Reppert, head of the organising Office<br />

of Public Order and Environment and concerned very<br />

much with the issue of water consumption, it made<br />

sense to adopt an “aquatic theme” for the 104 th Volks-<br />

fest event. Examples for this approach were Markmann’s<br />

“The Real Nessy” swing and his “Aqua-Labyrinth”,<br />

Krug’s “Beachwalking”, Henn’s “Lustige Seewelt”,<br />

Howey’s “Happy Sailor”, and Ahrend’s “Käpt’n<br />

Jimmy” – unfortunately, the latter two were placed<br />

directly opposite each other. Many cities have already<br />

had to cope with the withdrawal of the Americans, and<br />

now it is Schweinfurt’s turn. As a result, huge areas will<br />

be available for new purposes. Even a new fairground<br />

altogether is being considered, even though there are<br />

at present no details, and currently, nobody is particularly<br />

eager to move location. Very well established<br />

is the “Comedy-Frühschoppen” (morning beer and<br />

comedy show) with free entry to the Hahn beer tent and<br />

an exquisite performance by the impersonator, Wolfgang<br />

Krebs. Another two classic promotional media<br />

for the Schweinfurt Volksfest have lost none of their<br />

appeal; namely the lottery inside the beer tent (1 st<br />

prize: a cruise in the Caribbean) and the 16-page<br />

Volksfest paper as an insert in the daily press at the<br />

beginning of the Volksfest. Positively noticeable was<br />

the expansion of the so far limited toilet facilities by<br />

Helmut Dölle and his hygiene team. Robert Orth,<br />

contact person for the showmen of many years standing<br />

- legendary for always finding a solution to their<br />

problems - on the occasion of his resignation, received<br />

fulsome praise from the mayor in his opening<br />

address, evoking a long and well-deserved applause. ■<br />

ASCHAFFENBURG<br />

“The King” – one of the<br />

countless novelties at<br />

Aschaffenburg<br />

Text & Photos: Norman Vogt<br />

Before the popular Aschaffenburg Volksfest<br />

(open until 24 th June) could start on 14 th June,<br />

there was some commotion within the organising<br />

body, the Aschaffenburg Kongress and Touristikbetrieben,<br />

as due to continuous rain, the Main<br />

River breached its banks, flooding the fairground.<br />

And once the floods had receded and the first showmen<br />

had assembled their attractions, the water<br />

came back again. At this point in time, the beer tent<br />

from Franz Widmann, the large water ride from<br />

Löwenthal, as well as a number of games booths had<br />

already been built up. Some showmen were able to<br />

remove their booths in time and the city authorities<br />

succeeded in dismantling their power boxes, before<br />

the river level rose again. The expert surfboarder<br />

Philipp Schramm used the Main flood to race across<br />

the water-flooded fairground accompanied by a<br />

camera. Towed by a car, he presented acrobatic<br />

tricks – and the local press reported on the “Crazy<br />

50


Trip” across the fairground. After the water had<br />

slowly receded and the fairground was reasonably<br />

dry again, the 75 operations were able to build up on<br />

the 40,000-m_ area, and there were no further<br />

obstacles in presenting the 86 th Volksfest.<br />

The organiser was able to present many novelties<br />

this year. Believe it or not, as many as eight<br />

débutantes provided the visitors with ample variety<br />

throughout the 11-day event. At 7 p.m., the event was<br />

officially opened by Mayor Klaus Herzog inside the<br />

beer tent, before the brilliant fireworks display was<br />

held in the late hours. Among the further highlights<br />

there were the Senior's Day on Monday, the Day of<br />

Companies and Associations, the Family Day, as<br />

well as the closing fireworks display with illumination<br />

of the castle on 24 th June, which once again enticed<br />

many spectators. The Ferris Wheel occupied a new<br />

site this year. It was built up on the other bank of the<br />

Main where the “Bellevue” Ferris Wheel from the<br />

Bruch firm had previously been built up, causing<br />

quite a furore back in the 1990s. Novelties presented<br />

this year included the “Artistico” from Köhrmann,<br />

“sandwiched" almost to the very millimetre between<br />

two booths, Janßen’s “Crazy Mouse“, Dölle’s “Hot<br />

Shot“, Zinnecker’s “The King“, Schäfer’s “Voodoo<br />

Jumper”, as well as the “Top Jack” Simulator from<br />

Böhm, Hempen’s “Big Bamboo”, and Fackler’s<br />

“Après Ski Party”, which replaced a ghost ride at<br />

short notice. They were joined by Schmitt’s dodgem<br />

track, Fackler’s “Rallye Monte Carlo“, Keller’s chain<br />

ride, Brambach’s “Mäuse Stadt“, Hohmann’s “Rund<br />

um den Tegernsee”, and the “Revolution” from Kinzler-Nickel.<br />

Moreover, younger visitors were able to<br />

enjoy an impressive and varied selection of attractions.<br />

A kiddie ride, kiddie track ride, compressed air<br />

ride, a Samba-Balloon, mini-dodgem track, walkingwaterballs<br />

and a bungee-trampoline captured many<br />

kiddies' hearts. In the end, the organiser looked<br />

back on a successful event, despite the initial<br />

problems with high water.<br />

Congratulations, President Albert Ritter!<br />

A reception full of atmosphere celebrated his 60 th birthday in Essen<br />

Over 500 guests from the whole of Europe<br />

celebrated with ESU President Albert Ritter<br />

his 60 th birthday on the 2 nd July in the<br />

Essen Grugahalle. The European Showman<br />

Union together with the German Showman<br />

Association, the working group of the<br />

Showman Association in NRW, the Historic<br />

German Showman Society, and the Showman<br />

Association Essen/Ruhrgebiet von<br />

1919 e.V. invited guests to a reception in<br />

Ritter's home town.<br />

As representative of 70,000 showman colleagues,<br />

Honorary President Heimo Medwed<br />

congratulated the celebrated. Medwed, who<br />

was ESU President from 2001 to 2006, thanked<br />

his successor, who not only has the ambition<br />

and abilities, but also a huge showman<br />

heart, for the "often difficult work as<br />

ESU President". Medwed contined: "However<br />

what really important is – you take the time<br />

because the concerns of your European colleagues<br />

are of prime importance. Through<br />

your engagement in France, Spain and Brussels<br />

– actually the whole of Europe – you<br />

have proved that you are a real European,<br />

without neglecting your base however."<br />

In addition to the many official speeches and<br />

greetings, this 60th birthday celebration was<br />

a great event. Guests could enjoy the evening<br />

<br />

The ESU friends congratulate their President<br />

with sociable drinks according to the showman<br />

way with music and fairground specialities.<br />

ESU sets guidelines for the cultural recognition of the<br />

European Volksfests<br />

■ International exchange of experiences in Brussels<br />

■ Implementation of the Europanorm 13814 should be reviewed in court<br />

■ A warm welcome to the new French member association<br />

President Albert Ritter (centre) with the Presidents of the French<br />

Showman Association UDAF Jean Claude Peillex (r) and UDAF<br />

Vice President Eric Ciceron.<br />

Over 30 representatives from seven member states of the<br />

European Showman Union had discussions with international<br />

experts on the 19 th June in Brussels about current<br />

themes of the European showman branch.<br />

The central point was the recognition of the European<br />

Volksfests as an immaterial cultural asset as well as the<br />

standardized implementation of the Europanorm 13814<br />

for ride constructions in the EU member countries.<br />

Jens Geier, member of the European Parliament (right with President<br />

Albert Ritter), supporting the interests of the showmen.<br />

In the beginning, Dr. Rob Belemans,<br />

Director of the Flemish<br />

Institute for Immaterial Cultural<br />

Assets and longstanding UN-<br />

ESCO-specialist, together with<br />

Marc Jacobs, spoke about the<br />

process and necessary steps to<br />

be taken for the application for<br />

the admission of the traditional<br />

European Volksfests as immaterial<br />

cultural asset into the World<br />

Heritage listing. ESU-members<br />

must initially make an application<br />

to the National Ministry<br />

of Culture in their own country.<br />

The ESU will therefore prepare<br />

an example with recommendations,<br />

which will be available to<br />

the national Associations.<br />

During the second part of the<br />

discussions held at the cultural<br />

centre FARO, detailed information<br />

was given about the implementation<br />

of the Europanorm<br />

13814 initiated already<br />

ten years ago for ride constructions<br />

in EU member countries.<br />

The ESU demands a European<br />

wide uniform implementation<br />

and criticized the mode of Germany<br />

that doesn't guarantee<br />

any special protection for owners<br />

of older attractions, who as<br />

a result would be disadvantaged.<br />

The ESU representatives agreed<br />

unanimously to take legal<br />

action against this solo effort on<br />

the part of Germany in the European<br />

court of law.<br />

Further themes discussed in<br />

Brussels were the traffic problems<br />

particularly of Irish showman<br />

colleagues, the battle to<br />

safeguard the traditional fair<br />

Sinksenfoor in Antwerp, the development<br />

of educational opportunities<br />

for showman children<br />

in Europe, as well as the current<br />

situation regarding tax<br />

rights.<br />

A hearty welcome was given to<br />

representatives of the French<br />

Showman Association UDAF as<br />

new member of the European<br />

Showman Union by President<br />

Albert Ritter. And just as hearty<br />

European showman representatives during discussions<br />

in Brussels.<br />

a welcome to the ESU circle was given to the<br />

President of the Scottish section of the British<br />

Showman Association, the British Showmen<br />

Guild, Mr Alex James Colquhoun, by Albert<br />

Ritter.<br />

Following a busy day, the participants were<br />

more than satisfied with the results of the<br />

trade discussions.<br />

President Albert Ritter: "There are still<br />

countless challenges standing before us.<br />

And so the work of a strong professional<br />

association is most important. The ESU as<br />

umbrella organisation is the only effective<br />

weapon and spearhead to fend off disasters<br />

for the European showmen." The<br />

Scottish President Alex James Colquhoun<br />

declared: "The showmen in Europe all have<br />

similar problems. If we work together,<br />

these problems will be easier to solve."<br />

section of the British Showmen Guild.

The grand opening of a completely<br />

is still an unusual sensation<br />

within the satiated European<br />

amusement park branch. And<br />

this year, all eyes turned<br />

towards the metropole of Istanbul<br />

where the first large and<br />

modern theme park has been<br />

opened in Turkey.<br />

<strong>Vialand</strong><br />

Turkey’s Prime Minister<br />

Erdogan opened the <strong>Vialand</strong> /<br />

Operations Manager Cem Tuna<br />

<strong>Vialand</strong><br />

The fact that it’s one of the largest construction<br />

projects that the Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan<br />

has been attempting to manifest during his already<br />

10 year term of office is irrelevant to mention. However,<br />

although the <strong>Vialand</strong> project was generally<br />

approved of by the population, other large and intended<br />

mega-projects of his – such as for example<br />

the intended construction of the world’s largest<br />

mosque (and with that causing the possible<br />

UNESCO World Cultural Heritage title revocation)<br />

or the development of Taksim <strong>Park</strong> (destroying one<br />

of the few green areas in the metropolis) – have<br />

caused more than discontent for the citizens of<br />

Istanbul.<br />

Nevertheless the <strong>Vialand</strong> project stands for the<br />

successful conversion of an industrial wasteland,<br />

which is located in the centre of the Istanbul city<br />

district of Eyüp, around eight kilometres from the<br />

historic district. The park came into being as a joint<br />

venture of the Via Grup (Bayrakter Insaat) and the<br />

Gürsoy Grup, the two Turkish construction and<br />

54


investment companies, which are not unknown in<br />

the domestic shopping mall and real estate<br />

sectors. The main economic ingredient of the 60<br />

hectare sized grounds is the 35 hectare shopping<br />

mall of the same name, whilst the actual net<br />

footage of the theme park is at the moment 11<br />

hectares, which in future can be extended to 20<br />

hectares.<br />

Due to the unusual property on the rise of an earlier<br />

quarry, the park has a very interesting and almost<br />

unique overal master plan, as it is accessible to<br />

visitors top-down. A grandiose view of a part of<br />

Istanbul and the imminent park area can be seen<br />

from almost every vantage point. Although the<br />

surprise effect of the yet undiscovered is<br />

reduced, the view of the park and the surrounding<br />

area and the anticipation of the<br />

attractions is great. The thematic challenge of<br />

the attractive design of all buildings and<br />

attractions being seen not only from the<br />

facades but also from above has almost been<br />

perfectly resolved. The park design and master<br />

plan was the responsibility of the ANM<br />

Group International. The complete architecture<br />

was by the Dome Partners architectural group.<br />

And parts of the park (the kiddie land and the<br />

spillwater) were themed by Spanish TAA<br />

Industries.<br />

Originally the opening up of the park was<br />

planned to be bottom-up, and the main<br />

entrance was to be between a generous area<br />

that is currently under the “<strong>Vialand</strong> Express”<br />

station and the imposing waterfall (similar to<br />

Canada’s Wonderland). The area of the current<br />

outside parking section should have been<br />

included which would have resulted in the park<br />

being twice as large as it is now, right from the<br />

beginning. However the trick of having the<br />

entrance above was genial – particularly viewing it<br />

from an economical aspect: all theme park visitors<br />

have to pass a part of the shopping mall in order<br />

to arrive at the entrance.<br />

<strong>Vialand</strong> Tema <strong>Park</strong> is not only the only theme park<br />

in Turkey, but also the only one worldwide that<br />

contains Turkish themes – a fact that is rather<br />

astonishing as due to Turkish history, there’s room<br />

for many characteristic themes (Europa-<strong>Park</strong> is the<br />

only one that has or would think about a Turkish<br />

theme).<br />

The Family Coaster could<br />

go into operation in the middle<br />

of July<br />

Diligent work continues as<br />

before at <strong>Vialand</strong> <strong>Park</strong><br />

Opening Without Main Attractions<br />

The start of construction of the <strong>Vialand</strong> project took<br />

place in September 2011, and the completion date<br />

was announced to be the 23 rd April 2013, but with<br />

a delay of only one month, the celebration of the<br />

opening could take place: On the 29 th of May the<br />

<strong>Vialand</strong> Tema <strong>Park</strong> was opened on the day of the<br />

conquest of Constantinople by the Ottomans in the<br />

year 1453, by the Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan<br />

– unfortunately however without the three largest<br />

attractions. One of them is the family coaster<br />

“Maceraperest” (“The Adventurer”) from Intamin,<br />

which could go into operation on 13 th of July. The<br />

attraction has a length of 600 metres, and a height<br />

of 22 metres. The openly visible track course can<br />

only be described as extremely innovative for a<br />

family coaster, containing characteristics that are<br />

in actual fact more typical for the so-called “Mega-<br />

Lite Coaster” one of which as example is the<br />

“Goliath” at Walibi Holland: the drop converts into<br />

a curve near to the ground, and is followed by<br />

among others two intensive parallel turns. Another<br />

large attraction that will apparently be completed<br />

by August is the 4,000 square metres sized indoor<br />

water ride “Fatih’in Rüyasi” (“Fatih’s Dream”) from<br />

Intamin, which tells the story of Sultan Mehmet<br />

Fatih, the conqueror of Istanbul (1432 – 1481) with<br />

116 figures and animatronics from Heimotion,<br />

whilst the water course also contains a small drop.<br />

Sadly the main attraction of <strong>Vialand</strong>, the 660 metres<br />

long LIM-coaster “Nefeskesen” (“Breath Taker”)<br />

56


from Intamin will have to wait. In actual fact this 100<br />

kilometre per hour coaster should have gone into<br />

operation at the end of April, but since the placing<br />

of the initial order the location of the coaster was<br />

suddenly changed, which made new design drawings<br />

and calculations necessary, and there’s also<br />

the fact that the supports were definitely to be<br />

made in Turkey. The result: The tracks, despite the<br />

new location were delivered punctually by Intamin,<br />

however the supports were still not finished (after<br />

a good number of improvements had to be made<br />

and the supports were still not satisfactory, they<br />

were finally ordered from Intamin at the end of<br />

April). The current opening date has been<br />

announced as October. Definite is the fact that<br />

once the Launch Coaster has been erected, the<br />

complete picture of the park will be decisively<br />

influenced, as the 45 metres high Top Hat element<br />

will tower over the high cliff of the earlier quarry,<br />

and will present 72 metres height to the ground.<br />

Vertical <strong>Park</strong> Experience<br />

However, even without these three large attractions<br />

<strong>Vialand</strong> <strong>Park</strong> still looks complete. The exposed<br />

location high over the roofs of Istanbul is particularly<br />

unusual, and is most probably only surpassed<br />

by the Tibidabo theme park in Barcelona. The park<br />

entrance is located on the highest geographic<br />

point where the “<strong>Vialand</strong> Satosu” is situated, an<br />

architectural symbiosis of the Disneyland castles<br />

and Istanbul’s Topkapi-Palace, where the four<br />

One of the main attractions<br />

is without a doubt the “Starshape”,<br />

simply and affectionately<br />

known here as “360”<br />

Zierer’s “Jet Ski” also enjoys<br />

great popularity in Turkey<br />

57


parking levels connect up. Located here are the<br />

two storey carousel from SBF/Visa, the 160 metres<br />

long indoor water ride “Hayal Makinesi” (“Dream<br />

Machine”) from Intamin and Heimotion, a modern<br />

and extensive version of the Disneyland “It’s a<br />

Small World” with Asiatic and European countries,<br />

and the extremely generous kiddie area “Oyuh<br />

Dünyasi” (“Play World”), with a consistent soft floor<br />

– a step that could be followed by all other parks.<br />

There are nine ride constructions for children here<br />

with a minimum size of 90 centimetres, among<br />

them also the “Wacky Worm” kiddie coaster, which<br />

are however presented at all of the many small<br />

Lunaparks in Istanbul.<br />

The strongly slanting street “Bir Zamanlar Istanbul”<br />

(“Once Upon a Time Istanbul”) leads down to the<br />

second level by the name of “Efsaneler Dünyasi”<br />

(“History World”), which contains a generous area<br />

with restoration possibilities, the Wave Swinger<br />

“Saray Salincagi” (“Palace Swinger”) from Zierer,<br />

the entrance to the still not completed indoor water<br />

attraction “Fatih’in Rüyasi” behind an Ottoman<br />

fortification themed facade, and the 50 metres high<br />

Freefall Tower “Adalet Kulesi” (“Tower of Justice”)<br />

from Fabbri. The last mentioned is really something:<br />

only the tip of the tower shows out of the<br />

building, and not only reveals a surprising and<br />

breathtaking view of the park and Istanbul to passengers,<br />

but the following freefall can only be<br />

described as surprisingly intensive. The previewshow<br />

from Heimotion and the building are also<br />

decidedly successful – modelled on the Maiden’s<br />

Tower (on the Asian site of Istanbul) its firmament<br />

design is rich in traditional detail.<br />

Serpentine steps lead visitors down to the main<br />

level called “Macera Dünyasi” (“Adventure World”).<br />

Most of the attractions can be found here: the 480<br />

metre long Spillwater attraction “Viking” from<br />

Intamin with two drops of a 10 and 14 metre height<br />

respectively (the first being substantially wetter than<br />

the second), the family coaster “Maceraperest” from<br />

Intamin, the water attraction “Jet Ski” from Zierer,<br />

58


and the 60-seat 4D-cinema “Hayal Perdesi” (“The<br />

Dream Curtain”) from simworks (two separate<br />

entrances give the impression that there are really<br />

two attractions, however only two constantly changing<br />

films from nWave are shown in the show room).<br />

A large part of this level is comprised of an independent<br />

African theme land, which doesn’t quite fit<br />

into the stereotypical picture of Turkey, and unfortunately,<br />

being the only area in <strong>Vialand</strong>, has only dusty<br />

gravel paths. The attractions here on the other hand<br />

are all first class: the 13 metre high, 35-seat and<br />

beautifully theme “King Kong” from Huss Rides, the<br />

27 metre high “360” Starshape from Zierer offering<br />

wild inversions, and the 425 metre long and<br />

refreshing “Cilgin Nehir” (“Crazy River”) Rapid Ride<br />

from Intamin.<br />

A slightly sloping path to the lowest and still nameless<br />

level (on the same height level as the outside<br />

parking area), is equipped with two indoor attractions<br />

on the edge of the path: the “Safari Tüneli” is<br />

an interactive Darkride from ETF, Alterface, and<br />

P&P Projects on which riding guests are able to<br />

shoot at various targets. And the “Zindan” (“Dungeon”)<br />

is a not particularly kiddie friendly Ghost<br />

Ride from ETF and Heimotion, which contains a<br />

track course with a number of creepy stops, short<br />

reverse sections, and wet special effects. Both<br />

Darkrides are equipped with seven respectively<br />

ten trackless “Mystic Mover” cars<br />

from ETF from the Netherlands.<br />

In general the Turks are<br />

very fond of children – which is<br />

reflected in the relatively large<br />

kiddie area “Oyuh Dünyasi”<br />

59


Room for Further Attractions<br />

Somewhat disappointing is the current conclusion<br />

of the theme park, the originally planned entrance<br />

area. Around 30 metres under the not yet completed<br />

Launch Coaster there’s still enough area for<br />

future attractions and extensions, however the<br />

huge artificial waterfall that is a great eye catcher<br />

even when driving towards <strong>Vialand</strong> is a dead end.<br />

Steps lead halfway to the top of the cliff, and the<br />

path ends in a small cave at the back of the<br />

waterfall.<br />

There could have been a Darkride or a Walkthrough<br />

placed here, or even caves leading to the<br />

beginning of the park, in order for visitors to be able<br />

to make a complete circuit of the park. As it is there<br />

are only two possibilities for visitors to land at the<br />

entrance-exit again: either they make their arduous<br />

way back on foot, or they can use the “<strong>Vialand</strong><br />

Express”, a street train from Delta Trains, back to<br />

the top.<br />

A viewing ride in the form of a Ferris Wheel or an<br />

Observation tower is not needed at <strong>Vialand</strong> by the<br />

way, as the available typography almost always<br />

offers an interesting view of the park area and<br />

beyond. <strong>Vialand</strong> could however do with a large<br />

show or street entertainment.<br />

Although there are 8,000 free parking spaces and<br />

nine free bus line services that connect <strong>Vialand</strong><br />

and Istanbul up to 12 times daily, a not yet available<br />

connection with local transport services is<br />

needed urgently, as 30 million visitors are<br />

expected annually. In relation to this it’s interesting<br />

to note that the annual visitor numbers were<br />

increased during the planning time from three to<br />

five million. There are (still) not many modern<br />

shopping malls in Istanbul, and modern theme<br />

parks (still) don’t exist in the whole of Turkey – no<br />

wonder then that <strong>Vialand</strong> sees itself as a prominent<br />

tourist destination, which even promises a 15<br />

percent increase in the total tourist number of<br />

Istanbul.<br />

60


Merchandise & Islamic Influences<br />

Istanbul’s Summer Resort<br />

In addition to fast-food stands and restaurants<br />

there are also Turkish coffee houses in the park<br />

area in original ambience. And even the shops<br />

have unusually good interior design in oriental<br />

style for a theme park. Nevertheless there are<br />

hardly any <strong>Vialand</strong> memorabilia that can be purchased<br />

(and there aren’t any on-ride-photos either),<br />

but only trinkets and travel souvenirs, in particular<br />

for Istanbul tourists. This reflects against the<br />

expected visitor numbers, as in addition to the<br />

local visitors, financially strong guests are expected<br />

from the Arabian countries. As it is, Turkey is a<br />

popular holiday destination for Islamic tourists, as<br />

the burka, Carsaf and Chador wearer is more readily<br />

accepted here as in other countries of Europe.<br />

Somewhat disconcerting for non-Muslim visitors is<br />

the summons to prayer five times a day, heard from<br />

the countless minarets of the city. And even in front<br />

of <strong>Vialand</strong> the unmistakable summons continues<br />

as there are two mosques in the immediate<br />

vicinity of the park. And since the imam has<br />

set up audio equipment, music and the<br />

happy cries of visitors are drowned out at<br />

the park. In general the Turkish population<br />

is unperturbed by the call to prayer. On the<br />

one hand the religion allows two hours time<br />

after each summons in order to be able to<br />

turn towards Mecca (there are no prayer<br />

rooms in the park), and on the other hand<br />

those in liberal Istanbul are a lot less<br />

religious than those in the country – something<br />

that the current Prime Minister<br />

Erdogan is well known to want to change,<br />

forcing the adoption of the shariah and the<br />

abolishment of separation of religion and<br />

state (and with that violates not only EUrights,<br />

but also part of the constitution that<br />

the founder of modern Turkey, Mustafa<br />

Kemal Atatürk, had established in 1923).<br />

<strong>Vialand</strong> is well worth a visit alone<br />

due to its location. Visitors have a<br />

breathtaking view of parts of Istanbul the whole<br />

year through. But a visit is particularly pleasant<br />

during the summer months as the park in the<br />

heights and the shopping mall’s alleys always<br />

offer refreshing breezes.<br />

And at the very latest, after all attractions have<br />

been opened, <strong>Vialand</strong> will be up to the standard of<br />

other parks in the European branch. Further along,<br />

the 350,000 square metres outdoor shopping mall<br />

(with 150.000 net square metres) makes<br />

additional offers, and in the upcoming year will be<br />

opening a 5-Star hotel with 250 rooms, not to<br />

mention cosmopolitan Istanbul as well. This 17<br />

million resident city is a vibrating world metropolis<br />

and a melting pot of various cultures, and well<br />

worth a visit.<br />

The imposing setting puts<br />

“King Kong” right in the scene<br />

<strong>Vialand</strong> is located high<br />

over the roofs of Istanbul<br />

61


The Rapid Ride and the 4D<br />

cinema with two entrances<br />

The interior architecture is<br />

also convincing at <strong>Vialand</strong> <strong>Park</strong><br />

Since End of May <strong>Vialand</strong> is open daily from 10:00<br />

a.m. to 7 p.m., on the weekends until at least 9 p.m.<br />

A day ticket on the weekend costs 79 Turkish Lira<br />

(around 31 Euro), on week days 55 TL (21 Euro)<br />

from Monday to Thursday. Children between 4 and<br />

11 years of age pay 63 TL and 44 TL respectively<br />

(approx. 25 and 17 Euro). The theme park is only<br />

closed from the beginning of January to the middle<br />

of February. The shopping mall directly next door<br />

is open daily from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.<br />

Interview with Cem Tuna<br />

General Manager Mehmet Emeç, who<br />

had worked for Walt Disney World previously,<br />

was involved in <strong>Vialand</strong> right<br />

from the start. However, shortly after<br />

the opening, he left the company, and<br />

Cem Tuna, who was actually Operations<br />

Manager at <strong>Vialand</strong> <strong>Park</strong>, took<br />

over the role of <strong>Park</strong> Manager.<br />

Mr Tuna, what did you do earlier?<br />

I worked at Dreamworld and White Water<br />

World theme parks in Australia during the past 5<br />

years, last as Events and <strong>Park</strong> Operations<br />

Manager.<br />

What were the biggest challenges before<br />

the opening?<br />

The education of the 200 permanent employees<br />

took a lot of time and was important, as up until<br />

now there has been no modern operated theme<br />

park of western standards in Turkey. We are the first<br />

one, so within two months we had them up to the<br />

mark, especially as far as safety matters are concerned.<br />

Naturally my experiences at Dreamworld<br />

and White Water World played a role. As a result<br />

we are well prepared for children who have lost<br />

their parents, and the discreet surveillance of the<br />

public conveniences is also of the highest level.<br />

62


We have safety codes and the most modern<br />

communication structure.<br />

Are there however differences between<br />

<strong>Vialand</strong> and Dreamworld?<br />

The biggest difference is park experience:<br />

Dreamworld has 35 years experience in theme<br />

park operation, <strong>Vialand</strong> has just started with extra<br />

high standards in safety, and we have more<br />

personnel at rides to control guests.<br />

And what are the differences between<br />

<strong>Vialand</strong> and ORA World, the first, but also much<br />

smaller park project in Istanbul that opened in<br />

May 2012, but closed permanently only a few<br />

months later?<br />

ORA World had major management issue, and<br />

unfortuanetly didn’t have strong support in finances<br />

and from the city government. ORA was a private<br />

investor’s dream but<br />

couldn’t make the finish<br />

line. <strong>Vialand</strong> is a partnership<br />

with two major<br />

development companies<br />

with the support of the City<br />

Council. Also, one of the<br />

partners owns a large<br />

building company that built<br />

the whole <strong>Vialand</strong> project.<br />

What is the capacity<br />

of <strong>Vialand</strong> <strong>Park</strong>?<br />

When all attractions<br />

are in operation including<br />

shows and the not yet<br />

completed large constructions,<br />

then we will<br />

come to an hourly capacity<br />

of 8,000 guests.<br />

The “Old Istanbul Street” and impressive waterfall<br />

The interactive indoor construction “Safari Tüneli”<br />

and the horror attraction “Zindan”<br />

63


The Launch Coaster will<br />

open at the end of 2013<br />

Is the American concept “theme park in a<br />

shopping mall” behind the <strong>Vialand</strong> project, or<br />

can or must <strong>Vialand</strong> <strong>Park</strong> exist without a shopping<br />

mall?<br />

by the state having a more massive influence<br />

on the tourist sector and with that <strong>Vialand</strong> as<br />

expected?<br />

We are already counting up to 10,000 visitors<br />

on the weekends. Istanbul has 17 million residents,<br />

and we are of the opinion that alone in this metropolis<br />

there are six million potential visitors. Added<br />

to that, nine million tourists visit annually, many of<br />

them from the Arabian countries. For this reason we<br />

believe initially we can target four million visitors<br />

annually. Now and again we do invite schools, to<br />

fulfil our important social responsibilities.<br />

Also because the Turkish government is<br />

also involved in the <strong>Vialand</strong> project?<br />

The face of the park: not<br />

all employees speak <strong>English</strong><br />

but nevertheless are friendly<br />

and extremely helpful<br />

The indoor water ride from<br />

Intamin/Heimotion is planned to<br />

open in August<br />

In North America there are only indoor parks.<br />

We are however the world’s first outdoor-theme<br />

park with a shopping mall. And we have attractions<br />

and a theming design that can match larger parks.<br />

For this reason the park can naturally do without as<br />

well.<br />

Up until now, very often whole schools are<br />

invited in the first week of operation to simulate<br />

a full park. Are the government-critical<br />

demonstrations which have been advanced on<br />

The complete project is privately financed –<br />

an investment amount by the way of 1.15 million<br />

Turkish Lire (approximate conversion 460 million<br />

Euro). It is the largest private construction project<br />

since the coming into being of the Turkish states,<br />

in other words since 1923! Nevertheless the<br />

grounds are still owned by the city of Istanbul, as<br />

due to the horrendous real estate prices, there’s no<br />

way a project of this size could be realized. The<br />

deal: after 30 years, <strong>Vialand</strong>, including properties<br />

and holdings will be handed over to the state.<br />

Mr Tuna, thank you for the interview, and we<br />

wish you a lot of success.<br />

COASTER<br />

The 8-seat cars have<br />

been noticeably designed<br />

rich in detail<br />

Everything that Erlebnispark<br />

Tripsdrill tackles is “... done<br />

with love.” This nice advertising<br />

slogan of the park is known by<br />

almost everybody in the branch<br />

in the meantime. But it really is<br />

so, or is quite similar at the<br />

Swabian theme park, with a proper<br />

portion of local atmosphere.<br />

There has never been just<br />

any sort of attraction “off the<br />

rack” installed at the park, but<br />

completely individual designs<br />

have been realized, which make<br />

the attractions, and with that the<br />

park into something really<br />

special. So it is not by chance<br />

that the very new roller coaster<br />

“Karacho” has turned out to be<br />

something really unusual.<br />

Rides have realized<br />

50 coasters in only 15<br />

years, and “Karacho” is the<br />

anniversary edition of the<br />

Swabian manufacturer! Our<br />

heartfelt congratulations!<br />

Karacho<br />

Already shortly after the installation of the last<br />

large coaster five years ago – the wooden<br />

coaster “Mammut” from Cordes Coaster – a survey<br />

showed that visitors wanted a fast looping<br />

coaster. “We were happy to comply” said 27 year<br />

old Benjamin Fischer, who has become a member<br />

of management since the beginning of 2013, and<br />

travels all over the world<br />

together with his father<br />

Ronald and uncle Helmut<br />

to compile ideas for their<br />

own coaster. It was to be a<br />

Launch Coaster, determined<br />

right from start. “And<br />

we wanted something<br />

similar to ‘Oblivion’ at<br />

Alton Towers, where the<br />

train drops into a tunnel.<br />

We’ve got that now, but<br />

much smaller”, smiled<br />

General Manager Helmut<br />

Fischer. And at our park<br />

we drop into the tunnel<br />

with a dive loop; that’s<br />

unique worldwide”,<br />

added nephew Benjamin proudly. “A Heartline-<br />

Roll directly at the start as at Thorpe <strong>Park</strong> and<br />

Hansa-<strong>Park</strong> appeared interesting for us during internal<br />

family brainstorming”, explained Helmut<br />

Fischer, “but we didn’t want a vertical lift in the<br />

middle of the track, as in our opinion it would have<br />

hampered the smooth ride sequence”. As a result<br />

the elements of the coaster were decided on step<br />

by step, and the feasibility checked together with<br />

manufacturer Gerstlauer and the Stengel offices.<br />

The end result is called “Karacho”, a coaster with<br />

an incredible layout!<br />

66


However, how do the world’s most popular ride<br />

figures combined into one construction really ride?<br />

Remarkably well, as despite the variation of the<br />

most different elements on the relatively short 700<br />

metre track course, the interaction can only be<br />

described as perfect. And because the eight-seat<br />

cars have no shoulder restrains but laudably only<br />

lap bars, the ride fun will not produce any unpleasant<br />

surprises even after quite a number of years<br />

of operation. Additionally, the cars are equipped<br />

with a completely spring mounted chassis, which<br />

also has a positive effect on ride comfort.<br />

We take our places in one of the eight slightly<br />

heightened seats, put on the comfortable lap bars,<br />

and we’re ready to roll. In a leisurely 180° curve<br />

we say goodbye to all those waiting and roll into<br />

darkness. But here there’s no comfortable Darkride<br />

sequence waiting for us, but without any<br />

warning we shoot six metres upwards into a Heartline-Roll,<br />

which is followed by an also unexpected<br />

short but intense drop that lands us on the straight<br />

acceleration section. At a flying start we catapult<br />

at 2,000 horse power in only 1.6 seconds to 100<br />

kilometres per hour. We race in the open where a<br />

any price, but integration into<br />

the landscape! In the background<br />

“G’sengte Sau”, the first work<br />

“Karacho” leaves the dark<br />

“garage” onto the track rich in<br />

experiences / if it’s too much of<br />

a good thing then the “Kotz-<br />

Tonne” in the station can be<br />

used (Hofmann Figuren)<br />

“Top Hat” rams us into the skies 30 metres<br />

vertically. Wow what a brilliant overture! In the<br />

lofty heights there’s hardly any time to take a<br />

breath, as we race almost immediately with abundant<br />

airtime vertically towards the ground...only<br />

to win height subsequently once again – this time<br />

in the form of a vertical loop, that is run into and<br />

then exited from at the side. A straight stretch<br />

leads us into an overbanked steep curve leading<br />

again down towards ground level. Following a parallel<br />

turn we travel into the trim brakes. A short<br />

breather and the conclusion begins. Whilst most<br />

looping coasters only offer a helix or at the most a<br />

last simple twist, “Karacho” offers a sheer breathtaking<br />

finale: after a 360° curve we twist through<br />

an Immelmann that begins the wrong way around,<br />

and drop headlong into the misty tunnel, only to<br />

reach the open a split second later with a simple<br />

corkscrew. It’s only then – after these thrilling<br />

moments – that the magnet brakes take a grip and<br />

we roll into the station. Phew, made it...but what an<br />

experience!<br />

Once again operator family Fischer has done<br />

everything right, as with the medium sized roller<br />

coaster, the Gerstlauer team has delivered a<br />

masterpiece, and a layout that can’t be found<br />

anywhere else in the world. And when by spring<br />

2014 the sophisticated outside design and the<br />

theming of the station area are completed, Tripsdrill<br />

has another non-typical attraction that<br />

radiates Swabian humour, and is up to the<br />

standard of the big ones in the branch. ■<br />

It’s still only a building site<br />

but the model already shows a<br />

sophisticated design<br />

Speedy curves, nearground<br />

underwater tunnel challenge<br />

all passengers<br />

Fårup Sommerland has an exceptional<br />

position in Denmark:<br />

the park is situated in a well<br />

frequented holiday region, and<br />

is located not far from the large<br />

cities of Aalborg and Arhus.<br />

However it is in a permanent<br />

competitive situation with a park<br />

that although situated 150 kilometres<br />

away, serves almost an<br />

identical target group: Djurs<br />

Sommerland. And so in Jutland<br />

there’s a curious race taking<br />

place with only one sure winner:<br />

the visitor.<br />

Text & Photos: Tim Herre<br />

Managing Director Per<br />

Dam Jensen and a view into the<br />

station area<br />

Orkanen<br />

And as friendly as the relationship between<br />

Fårup-Chief Sören Kragelund and Djurs-Boss<br />

Henrik B. Nielsen may be, when it’s about plans<br />

for the future, there’s naturally absolute silence<br />

and poker faces between the two companies. And<br />

it can happen that one park is in front of the other<br />

as far as ideas are concerned.<br />

And that’s how it happened in the area of water<br />

attractions: in 2011 Djurs presented the Mack<br />

water coaster “Skatteoen” – and according to<br />

rumours, Fårup was also interested in a Spillwater<br />

type of attraction. But one has to get the edge over<br />

its competitor. What’s the solution? Build a water<br />

attraction when the competitor has just built one?<br />

Not Fårup. Denmark’s first Family Suspended<br />

Coaster from Vekoma came into being in Saltum,<br />

which, following Gröna Lund’s “Kvasten”, is only<br />

the second construction of this type in Scandinavia,<br />

and the third in Europe.<br />

“Orkanen” is the name of the new attraction that is<br />

erected on the lake and the bordering grounds,<br />

which in this area of the park, results in a real<br />

family-thrill-concentration with two main attractions.<br />

“Orkanen” and “Falken” share a common<br />

souvenir shop, which, due to necessity, has to be<br />

driven through, however their entrances are far<br />

apart from each other so that on peak days no<br />

70


unwanted congestion situations occur.<br />

Responsibility for the design of “Orkanen” was in<br />

the personal hands of designer Rasmus Altenborg<br />

and park chief Sören Kragelund. The outside of<br />

the construction was fitted to the theme: debris lies<br />

around everywhere; the hurricane apparently has<br />

caused a lot of damage. Even in the station there<br />

is not one stone left upon the other. Here in particular<br />

the terrific design must be mentioned due to<br />

Sören Kragelund. Authentic tools and workshop<br />

cupboards, which function very practically as<br />

storage space for the bags and backpacks of the<br />

riding guests, were searched for all over Denmark.<br />

And the Würth-calendar with bikini girls can’t be<br />

missing either – after all fishing and boat building<br />

is a male domain.<br />

In the station things really take off as the processing<br />

can’t be any quicker. In parts, the train has a<br />

standing time of only 50 seconds. This is due to<br />

the fact that those at Fårup have waived additional<br />

belts on the from overhead lap bars. The<br />

resulting theoretic capacity of 670 persons per<br />

hour is reached in practice, and is for a park like<br />

Fårup Sommerland adequate. “When the day is<br />

slow we send the train on for a second round”<br />

explained Manager Per Dam Jensen.<br />

Whereas two rounds one after the other on “Orkanen”<br />

could be a little too much for a part of the<br />

family public, as the attraction is a little too intense<br />

for a family Inverter, and can hardly be compared<br />

to both constructions of the same type – Gröna<br />

Lund’s more or less tranquil rounds on “Kvasten”<br />

Almost all of the track<br />

course runs over a water<br />

surface area<br />

<strong>Park</strong> Germany. The first drop offers lots of airtime<br />

in the back seats, and the rest of the course is<br />

travelled through at a crisp and permanently high<br />

tempo, which is due in particular to the fact that<br />

the ride actually doesn’t win on height again.<br />

Additionally, the course travels near to natural<br />

surroundings and past the theming elements<br />

consistently. “This contributes enormously to the<br />

feeling of freedom that the passengers experience<br />

during the ride” said Per Dam Jensen, showing his<br />

satisfaction of the ride. “One has the feeling of<br />

almost being able to touch the surroundings whilst<br />

flying past.”<br />

Ride on a Watersurface<br />

And the park did a lot to achieve this. The highlight<br />

here is the first drop that leads through a foggy<br />

tunnel under the water surface of the lake. And the<br />

fog effect functions perfectly. The walls of the<br />

tunnel have been painted a matt black so that passengers<br />

really can’t see anything – a great effect that<br />

maybe colleagues from Alton Towers should take a<br />

look at in order to upgrade “Oblivion”. Following the<br />

tunnel, the 10-car train travels into a Horseshoe element,<br />

a curve with heavy overbanking. The g-forces<br />

here shouldn’t be disregarded, but at no time<br />

does one feel unsafe in the strongly angled seats<br />

to the back. The train is then led near to and over<br />

the water surface and absolves a right curve in the<br />

direction of the station, whilst the course elevates<br />

slightly. The next highlight is a helix that clings to the<br />

station building and reaches the maximum acceleration<br />

of 3.8 g here. Passengers are pressed strongly<br />

into their seats, and this is the exact spot where<br />

one must pose the question as to whether the ride<br />

befits a family coaster. Doesn’t matter – the passengers<br />

seem to like it, which results in a high number<br />

of repeat rides.<br />

72


Following the killer-helix, an ascent follows over<br />

and away from the station – some passengers pull<br />

their legs back fearfully, although there is naturally<br />

enough space. Positive to note is that the element<br />

over the station is not just absolved straight ahead<br />

but that there’s been a little swerve added. The next<br />

helix is already waiting on the other side of the<br />

station building, left and upwards once again – and<br />

this also leads so near to the ground that a small<br />

trench had to be dug under the course. The speed<br />

here is phenomenal. The attraction appears a lot<br />

faster than it actually is. And that’s the way it should<br />

be – not vice versa. The helix is followed by a turn<br />

and a right curve before it travels once again<br />

under the water surface, and then through a destroyed<br />

boat house and over a small dip. Work has<br />

been done here also with fog and the effect functions<br />

similarly as well as in the tunnel after the first<br />

drop. A powerful curve and the train narrowly<br />

misses a stranded fishing boat before it’s back into<br />

the station, where due to the last curve the train<br />

comes to a standstill at an ample tilt.<br />

A Family Coaster Not Only for Families<br />

Summary: Is this still a Family Suspended Coaster<br />

in the classical sense? Actually it’s not. Is “Orkanen”<br />

a powerful coaster on which the whole family<br />

can have a lot of fun? Absolutely! “Orkanen” is<br />

without a doubt the most mature FSC from<br />

Vekoma. The ride characteristics are excellent;<br />

there are no bangs, but lots of speed and diversity<br />

instead. With “Orkanen” both Vekoma and Fårup<br />

Sommerland have proved once again that an FSC<br />

is not obliged to belong in a kiddie area, but can<br />

be staged as a main attraction!<br />

WATERPARK<br />

Eleven new water<br />

slides from Polin enrich<br />

the Avonturenpark Hellendoorn<br />

in the Netherlands<br />

If there was something of plenty<br />

during the past months, then it<br />

was one thing: water. A whole lot<br />

of water, but unfortunately in a<br />

form that was very unpleasant<br />

for operators of amusement<br />

facilities – snow, heavy rains,<br />

right up to massive flooding. The<br />

new slide park Aquaventura<br />

however will cause a lot more joy<br />

for both the operators and the<br />

visitors about water – at least if<br />

the weather is on their side!<br />

Text & Photos: Marc Spies<br />

Aquaventura<br />

Due to the competence in operation<br />

of water parks, it is no wonder then<br />

that this year’s novelty at Hellendoorn<br />

is a slide park. Its name is<br />

Aquaventura, and all water slides<br />

Since 2011, the Avonturenpark Hellendoorn stem from the Polin Waterpark & Poolsystems firm.<br />

belongs to Looping, a subsidiary of H.I.G. The total number of eleven slides and the small<br />

Capital Europe. The company under director kiddie area are located among other areas on the<br />

Laurent Bruloy and a 30 percent minority holding earlier section of the “Exclaibur Stunt Show”. The<br />

of the earlier owner Compagnie des Alpes, also 2012 erected Huss Enterprise “Tarantula Magica”<br />

operates Parc Bagatelle and the Cobac <strong>Park</strong> (both also had to make way and is now situated in the<br />

in France), Pleasurewood Hills (in Great Britain), direct vicinity of the Top Spin “Montezuma’s<br />

Isla Magica (in Spain) and a number of water Revenge”, so that enough space could be created<br />

for a water park parks throughout Europe.<br />

area.<br />

74


Four Tower Constructions on Strip of Land<br />

As the grounds are elongated, four slide towers<br />

had to be erected. Unusual also is that there is no<br />

common pool where the slides end, but each slide<br />

has its own run-off area. This is an advantage of<br />

course in the minor area available, and is also<br />

cheaper with a smaller sized filtration plant.<br />

Unfortunately the water park does not have a<br />

larger pool where visitors can swim or splash<br />

around. On the other hand there are relaxing<br />

zones available with a sandy beach atmosphere,<br />

palms, and deck chairs. Entrance to Aquaventura<br />

only costs an extra six Euro in addition to the<br />

normal theme park ticket.<br />

Children in particular can experience<br />

their first slide platform<br />

at a height of three metres. The<br />

slides between a 17 to 31<br />

metres length from the Polin series<br />

“Pirates Splash” (Compact<br />

Slide), “Funtasy” (Wide Slide)<br />

and “Purple Torpedo” (Freefall)<br />

offer varied slide experiences.<br />

For more adult Aquaventura<br />

visitors there are other start<br />

towers available. The 67 metres<br />

long compact slide “Tornado<br />

Twist” starts from a 7.5 metre<br />

slide tower, and the “Double<br />

Trouble” from one level lower at<br />

five metres.<br />

When all this is not enough then<br />

there’s the next slide tower<br />

supported by five slides. All of<br />

them start at a height of ten<br />

metres, but are of varied construction:<br />

“Twist & Twirl” offers a<br />

curvy 88 metre layout going downhill, the “Dark<br />

Devil” tube slide requires on the other hand a tube<br />

for one or two persons for the one and half time<br />

helix and daylight effects. A completely different<br />

slide experience is offered by the “Green Fall”<br />

freefall slide, which is even a challenge for thrill<br />

seekers: a 36 metre length and a maximum speed<br />

of 41 km/h all speak for themselves. The U-shaped<br />

Boomerang Slide “Wacky Wave” brings passengers<br />

to a speed of 46 km/h travelling downhill<br />

steeply initially before stabilising like a Halfpipe.<br />

At the same time, up to four passengers can have<br />

a race on the 65 metre long “Rainbow Racer”<br />

simultaneously.<br />

WATERPARK<br />

Illustrative overall view<br />

of the new slide area at<br />

Hellendoorn<br />

The slide park was opened<br />

by the Hellendoorn Lord Mayor<br />

Anneke Raven and Willian<br />

Kleinjan fromAvonurenpark<br />

Hellendoorn<br />

The longest slide makes its start from a 14 metre<br />

high slide tower, where its name is also its programme:”Xtreme”<br />

initially offers open slide fun on<br />

a total length of 140 metres before mutating into a<br />

pipe slide together with daylight effects: Polin<br />

places semitransparent rings in the pipes, so that<br />

the lighting effects are not supplied by the usual<br />

electronics .<br />

Unfortunately not all slides were completed by the<br />

official opening at the end of June, however all<br />

attractions are now in operation. Distinctly obvious<br />

was the not completely finished grouting on<br />

individual slide elements that cut down on slide<br />

comfort considerably. This type of work was<br />

scheduled for the fine-tuning phase – the complete<br />

water park area was closed again after the<br />

official opening – temporarily.<br />

Résumé: The idea of combining water and theme<br />

park is not new, and in actual fact always promises<br />

success. However whilst it’s in the Scandinavian<br />

parks of all places that the combination of outdoor<br />

water park and theme park exists more frequently,<br />

it is not widespread in Central Europe – actually<br />

a shame as this practice has advantages for both<br />

the operator and the visitor: more attractions, a<br />

larger visitor capacity in accordance to size, operation<br />

costs can be well planned, and there’s fun<br />

for the whole family simultaneously.<br />

The Hellendoorn slide portfolio also offers a fitting<br />

slide for every visitor, from the small child right up<br />

to the thrill seeker. It remains to be seen however<br />

whether the visitor wants to visit a pure slide park<br />

where there is no normal pool or even a smaller<br />

one for little children, especially having to pay<br />

extra in addition to the regular park entrance price<br />

– there is no separate entrance from outside and<br />

is not one in planning. As the Netherlander are not<br />

known to be water shy, Aquaventura should be a<br />

complete success – so long as the weather plays<br />

along!<br />

being used”, he continued.<br />

And when looking at the big<br />

players in the Darkride area,<br />

one has to agree: in the cases<br />

of “The Amazing Adventures of<br />

We definitely didn’t want an interactive ride, Spider-Man”, “Harry Potter and the Forbidden<br />

and have been asked often why. It’s quite Journey” or Disney’s Indiana-Jones-rides there’s<br />

simple: because the impression of the ride is no banging away either. Naturally “Thors Hammer”<br />

has only been blessed with a fraction of the<br />

basically changed. People only pay attention to<br />

shooting and not on the story that is told”, explained<br />

Tusenfryd’s General Manager Bj¢rn Hårvard erence is only on the monetary level as “Thors<br />

sional for us” related Bj¢rn Hårvard Solli. “But P&P<br />

had something that one could build on, and we’re<br />

very happy with the result.”<br />

Interesting Story<br />

The story is also really original: the Nordic gods<br />

return to the armoury of Walhalla for the great<br />

battle of Ragnarök. Heimdall takes his horn, Odin<br />

his spear, Sutr fetches his flaming sword, and<br />

finally Thor takes his trusty Mj¢lnir, his hammer. But<br />

was that really Thor? No it is the evil Loki who had<br />

disguised himself as Thor!<br />

The task of the ride guests therefore is to bring<br />

back Thor’s hammer, right in the middle of Nordic<br />

unpredictability.<br />

“Thors Hammer” uses the gigantic spaciousness<br />

of an artificial cave here, which had previously<br />

been occupied by the simulation show “Viking<br />

Toktet”. This curious show had its fans by all<br />

means, but “it’s time had come” said Björn Harvard<br />

Soli. Actually a pity as the show in which visitors<br />

took their place on an enormous Viking ship<br />

had a somewhat “special” charm; however the<br />

placid multimedia swing was no longer modern.<br />

The new ride in comparison is all the more current:<br />

one travels past through 10 screens which present<br />

high resolution 3D pictures. The six-seat chaises<br />

from ETF move as fully functional simulation platforms<br />

that turn completely on their own axis and<br />

can also lean in all directions. Due to this freedom<br />

of movement and the resulting forces, a classic<br />

rocky cave<br />

Tusenfryd’s General<br />

Manager Bj¢rn Hårvard Solli<br />

ride system with central tracks was chosen, instead<br />

of the popular trackless system from the<br />

same manufacturer. The richly curved ride<br />

travels through creepy forests, over huge<br />

rivers and into icy caves. It becomes warm,<br />

cold, windy and wet. And countless rough journeymen<br />

obviously have something against<br />

Thor getting his hammer back – among them<br />

prominent representatives such as the Midgard<br />

Serpent. And so this is the way the 6-<br />

member crew fights its way through. They experience<br />

a number of unsightly encounters<br />

with Loki and his frightening offspring, until in<br />

an impressive showdown when the chaises remain<br />

standing in front of a 180° screen for about<br />

15 seconds and ride guests experience a<br />

flight sequence, Thor’s hammer is saved, and<br />

the god personally thanks the successful assistants<br />

for a short while.<br />

“Thor’s Hammer” is not a Ghost Ride, but is<br />

creepy and exciting. And it’s certainly nothing for<br />

really small children, so that’s the reason that the<br />

minimum size (tentatively) has been set at 1.2<br />

metres. Additionally the chaises go through really<br />

fast movements now and again during which time<br />

passengers have to hold on. Just how thrilling<br />

“Thors Hammer” really is, could be experienced<br />

one day before opening by Norway’s Minister of<br />

Labour, Anniken Huitfeldt, who was filmed during<br />

the experience and appeared relatively disorientated<br />

to readers of the online edition of a large daily<br />

newspaper. Apparently this type of ride was a new<br />

experience for the 43 year old.<br />

Résumé: “Thors Hammer” presents a new generation<br />

of Darkride. It’s technically challenging<br />

and offers an impressive ride experience despite<br />

a narrow budget frame, which most financial controllers<br />

would cry down as “not possible”. Certainly<br />

5.7 million Euro is no steal, but for many companies<br />

has to be financed. The story is lively and<br />

easy to understand, and makes ride guests accomplices<br />

of the most popular of all gods in Nordic<br />

mythology. Congratulations to Tusenfryd and<br />

Parques Reunidos for deciding on a ride that won’t<br />

break any records, or must appear in the newspapers<br />

particularly. And above all things, for a ride<br />

where the ride experience is paramount – and not<br />

a number on a LED display.<br />

EVENT<br />

Even an imaginatively<br />

illuminated theme park can<br />

be an unusual party<br />

location with atmosphere<br />

The Spanish theme park resort<br />

calls itself the “European Destination<br />

Resort”, and as such<br />

wishes to offer its visitors very<br />

special highlights with the best<br />

records.<br />

White Nights<br />

And all this is not enough: With the<br />

“White Nights” event, which takes<br />

place five times a year, Port-<br />

Aventura Resort offers the longest<br />

opening times in the European<br />

It is an undisputed fact that PortAventura has theme park scene.<br />

much on offer that is unique, and which is not Whilst at central European parks it’s the absolute<br />

available anywhere else in Europe. For example exception to the rule to remain open until 8 p.m.<br />

the world’s first Wing Coaster (Intamin, built in now and again, the Spanish park remains open<br />

in the park portfolio (from 100 cm height, CCI, built North American Disney parks that have a longer<br />

the park has one of the roller coasters hour-action. Naturally it must be mentioned that<br />

opening time with their annual once a year 24-<br />

“White Nights” is a complete success and is<br />

strongly frequented with 35,000 visitors – 10,000<br />

more than on normal operating days. And it’s no<br />

wonder, as almost all attractions remain open,<br />

among them not only all coasters but also most of<br />

the kiddie attractions! Added to that, there are also<br />

lighting concepts, special shows, and a number<br />

of party locations such as foam parties and openair<br />

discos. This special atmosphere not only<br />

entices the young, but also quite noticeably, many<br />

families.<br />

The “White Nights” was first presented in 2012.<br />

This year all park night owls attended, or alternatively<br />

can get their fill on the following dates: 18 th<br />

May, 29 th June, 27 th July,, 17 th of August, and 7 th of<br />

September.<br />

SEA WORLD ORLANDO<br />

SeaWorld-<strong>Park</strong> located in the<br />

amusement capital Orlando,<br />

opened a new attraction at the<br />

end of May together with a new<br />

theme area: “Antarctica: Emipre<br />

of the Penguin”<br />

Text:<br />

The merger of ride constructions with animals<br />

was until recently one of the most prominent features<br />

of the northern American SeaWorld- and<br />

Busch-Gardens-<strong>Park</strong>s. Recently the European<br />

Merlin Entertainments Group also found favour with<br />

the idea of bringing this unusual relationship profitably<br />

into its portfolio. Officially the fact that from<br />

both park groups Steve Schwarzman and his<br />

Private Equity Blackstone is one of the larger investors<br />

is irrelevant. The fact is that they are apparently<br />

inspired by the North American park highlights<br />

of this type: for example “Zufari” at Chessington<br />

World of Adventures (KPR 6/2013), “Polar<br />

Xplorer” at Legoland Billund (KPR 7/2012) or also<br />

“Achtung: Pinguine” at the new Ocean Abenteuer<br />

<strong>Park</strong> (KPR 6/2013).<br />

At the moment the combination of ride attraction<br />

and penguins appears to be highly popular, especially<br />

as SeaWorld Orlando has also opened its<br />

new attraction “Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin”.<br />

At the same time it’s the largest extension in the<br />

park’s history, as it not only contains ride<br />

84


MAGAZINE<br />

constructions but also a completely new theme<br />

land together with a huge animal habitat. And it’s<br />

there that the visitors dive into the Antarctic with<br />

temperatures at almost under 0° Celsius, icy winds<br />

and snow covered mountains. In the process, Puck<br />

the little gentoo penguin takes them into his world<br />

and his colony of over 250 species. The participants<br />

conquer the way there in quite large cars from<br />

Oceaneering accommodating up to 8 persons.<br />

Visitors may choose from two different intensity<br />

levels. Both routes are quite similar, the impressions<br />

vary however due to the vehicle movements – when<br />

compared to “Wild Expedition”, visitors observe the<br />

surroundings better when choosing “Mild Expedition”.<br />

In both cases the ride itself is relatively short,<br />

however caters to all the senses – the temperatures<br />

become colder from room to room, the vehicle<br />

moves around freely in the room ( so perceived),<br />

and multimedia scenes provide for much variety.<br />

The coldest attraction in the theme park metropolis<br />

Orlando is the family friendly adventure ride, which<br />

is also an educational expedition tour.<br />

EURASIA RESORT LAS VEGAS<br />

This is a project – in the event<br />

that it happens – that could only<br />

be built in Las Vegas. In that city<br />

there are already replicas of<br />

Venice, Paris, Rome, and New<br />

York.<br />

Text:<br />

Frank Lanfer<br />

Now however a Russian<br />

conglomerate from<br />

Novosibirsk plans to reproduce<br />

it all again – a<br />

copy of a copy so to speak<br />

– on a huge abandoned<br />

airport area, only a few kilometres<br />

away from the city<br />

borders. Whether or not it’s<br />

a great business idea has<br />

to be decided by those<br />

concerned. Those who are<br />

convinced of the idea can<br />

become a partner: all investors are heartily welcome<br />

with an investment amount beginning at 10,000 US<br />

Dollars. According to unconfirmed rumours, the<br />

Canadian shopping mall operator Triple Five is one<br />

of the first large investors, as the world’s largest<br />

shopping mall is also being planned on the 485 hectare<br />

grounds. Further along there is also an indoor<br />

and outdoor theme park in the planning with a 243<br />

m sized Ferris Wheel. The official head office of the<br />

Eurasia Resorts International Ltd., is Nassau. ■<br />

AMERICAN DREAM<br />

The title, the largest shopping<br />

mall in the world, appears to be<br />

very lucrative. The world’s<br />

largest in China stands shortly<br />

before completion, and another<br />

two further projects have already<br />

been announced: the first – once<br />

again, and for that reason maybe<br />

a question mark should be<br />

placed here – a location in Dubai,<br />

and the other in Las Vegas.<br />

Text:<br />

Frank Lanfer<br />

And in the process the Triple Five Group from the<br />

Canadian-Iranian family Ghermezian is merging<br />

in with the market very strongly.<br />

Already the group’s eye has been cast towards a<br />

very lucrative location in the immediate vicinity of<br />

New York City, taking over the earlier project called<br />

Xanadu, a shopping and entertainment centre in<br />

New Jersey, which in actual fact should have already<br />

opened in 2006 with a Ferris Wheel and<br />

coaster.<br />

In the meantime the project called American<br />

Dream Meadowlands is striving towards an opening<br />

in 2014. The huge building including an indoor<br />

ski run has been completed for years; however<br />

Triple Five wants to build the shopping mall, a water<br />

park, and an indoor theme park before the<br />

opening.<br />

Currently the football club New York Giants is<br />

suing against the scheme as the football<br />

association fears that the predicted 40,000 daily<br />

visitors to the mall will create a traffic chaos that<br />

cannot be coped with on match days, not to<br />

mention the filled to capacity suburban trains of<br />

New York.<br />

The newly erected Metlife Stadium is also located<br />

in East Rutherford on the opposite side of the very<br />

long street, around 10 kilometres away from<br />

Manhattan.<br />

In the theme park OCT East Resort, Shenzhen, the<br />

erection of a new “Shoot-the-Chutes” is well<br />

underway.<br />

A construction team has rebuilt and extended an<br />

existing lake at the mountain park, to make enough<br />

room for the ride attraction. In the meantime the<br />

landmark of the park, the White Water attraction is<br />

undergoing intensive repair work, following a fire in<br />

the artificial rock facade.<br />

■<br />

Large extensions are currently being undertaken<br />

at the impressive Changzhou theme park China<br />

Dinosaur <strong>Park</strong>. At the present time a new family area<br />

is being erected in the front area. “Dinotoon” will<br />

offer a choice of urgently needed attractions for the<br />

younger visitors, who have been more or less forgotten<br />

until now.<br />

At the back end of the park that may well become<br />

the front section, another large project is being<br />

realized – “Adventure<br />

Port”. Similar to the Universal<br />

City Walk, there<br />

will be a mixture of<br />

restaurants and rides<br />

here, however there will<br />

also be indoor rides<br />

installed: Italian manufacturer<br />

Zamperla is delivering<br />

a “Mini Jet 6”, a<br />

small Ferris Wheel, a<br />

dodgem ride, a “Demolition<br />

“Aero Top Jet”. ■
