Christopher Nitsche

and his “Piratenschaukel”

Text & Photos: Norman Vogt

Last year, Christopher

Nitsche from Erpolzheim

(Palatinate) took over the

“Piratenschaukel” from

Erich Winter from Worms,

who had built this kiddie

swing himself in 2006.

The light-weight swing (6 m

front, 8.50 m with paybox) is

completely made of aluminium

and can be towed by car

for transportation. After the

takeover, the front was newly

sheeted and newly painted by the Baumann Atelier

firm from Flomersheim. The five boats were dismantled

and equipped with a new floors and seats. All the

screws were removed and replaced by new, highquality

steel examples. Moreover, the lamps were

replaced by LEDs. Finally, a new undercarriage

tarpaulin was mounted. This done, the attraction was

ready for its première under new management at the

Martinsmarkt in Erpolzheim. The five “Piratenschaukel”

boats were newly and variously painted. The pink

boat quickly turned out to be the favourite boat of the

girls, who often even put up with a protracted waiting

time to be able to swing in their boat. Boys, however,

prefer the “Black Perl” boat. Nitsche’s “Piratenschaukel”

is presented at smaller events in

Parpalioni at the opening

“Bora Bora” is the name of

the new games booth from

Bernhard Parpalioni from

Stuttgart that went into

operation at the Mainz

Johannisfest. It is a modern

coin-operated attraction

with a total of 118 modern

games, which were ordered

from a firm in Brussels.

Previously, Bernhard Parpalioni

toured together with his

father Walter with the large

Continental Pick stand “City Shop”. His new attraction

is entirely open, and while the showman built the

9 x 4.50 m wagon himself, he contracted the Afaw

firm to realise his design ideas for the “Bora Bora”:

namely; beach, ocean and a South Sea “feel”. Other

striking features are the light-green flooring and the

latest lighting system. The games booth has

electrical requirements of just 18 kW. Next to the

attraction benches have been put up, inviting

guests to linger and enjoy. Further decoration

elements are palm trees and reeds. During the

première in Mainz, a team of entertainers

guaranteed a party atmosphere, presenting

every guest with a Hawaiian flower garland. ■




The Lauwers firm has

introduced the “Cortina Jet”

in Belgium

The ride was last put into

storage at a Finnish

amusement park

There are ride attractions which remain ageless

and enduringly fascinating despite their

advanced age. The "Bayernkurve", built by the

now defunct Anton Schwarzkopf firm, is one of

those attractions. Wherever an attraction like

this appears, it is always highly popular with

passengers and spectators alike.

The Belgian showman René Lauwers, who had

been looking for a suitable example of this classic

ride for some time, finally hit it lucky in far away Finland

in late 2011, where a Bayernkurve “Cortina

Jet”, last operated in the Tykkimaki amusement

park, had been in storage for some time.

Even though it had been

built in 1970, the

construction was in very

good technical condition.

Lauwers purchased

the attraction, overhauled

it in his limited

free time, prepared it for

touring and presented it

at this year’s Pentecost Fair in Antwerp.

Despite most of the decoration elements not then

being completed and adequate lighting largely

missing, the attraction was nonetheless highly

popular with the public. Lauwers will build up the

attraction at two to three further fairgrounds this


Goetzke’s “Breakdance”

The visual appearance of the classic round

ride “Breakdance” (Huss) from Alexander

Goetzke from Munich has been successfully


Its backflash and gondolas now feature wellknown

figures from the world of movies – even

the amusement park, where the “Breakdance”

had made a temporary guest appearance was

immortalized on one of the gondolas. Restyling had

started already last year, with artist Pryzbilla demonstrating

his skills on the “Breakdance”, having completed

his job at Goetzke’s “Alex Airport” beforehand.

A striking feature on the rear sides of the new gondolas

is the many LEDs, which provide a spectacular and

colourful lighting after dusk. The lighting pillars in the

front area are now equipped with six LED screens. Restyling

has not yet been completed; among other

features, the name sign is to be changed to match the

new design.




Under new management of

the Plaenert & Schieck firm:

The “House of Horror”

Stephanie Schieck, Patrick

Plaenert, and their son Hugo

The guards in front of the

“House of Horror”

Text & Photos: Rolf Orschel

Since late April last year, the “House of Horror”

Walkthrough construction has been touring under

new management. The young couple, Stephanie

Schieck and Patrick Plaenert from Weberstedt in

the Thuringia district of Unstrut-Hainich, have

taken over the attraction from the Hiddenhausen

showman enterprise Johann Spindler & Sohn.

Having successfully toured the attraction all over

Germany for almost 20 years, the previous owner

parted with the construction due to health reasons.

In 1993, the attraction was built by the Soest Fahrzeugbau

firm as “Das Haus” for the showman Johann

Spindler, and was redesigned as the “House of

Horror” 12 years ago. In order to give the construction

a new individual design, many ideas from Johann

Spindler and his son Sascha were realized. The front

was newly painted with scenes from the world of

horror and ghosts by the Kowalik Airbrushstudio, and

creepy new effects were installed inside the construction.

Finally, the larger-than-life sized guard welcoming

the guests in front of the entrance to the construction

was fitted out with a new set of black leather


Two years ago, Stephanie Schieck and Patrick Plaenert

founded their joint business, originally planning to

tour a ride attraction. However, when they learnt last

year that the “House of Horror” was up for sale, they

inspected the construction, quickly struck a deal with

Johann Spindler, and took it over in excellent condition

in April. Shortly after that, on 27 th April, they opened

their new acquisition at the Mai-Kirmes in Wesel.

Even though the attraction was handed over in perfect

condition, the MSR-Service firm in Mansfeld/Großörner

was contracted to thoroughly overhaul the electrical

equipment according to the latest standards. At the

same time, the lighting system was equipped with

LEDs. Moreover, additional decoration elements were

mounted and new effects were installed inside and

outside the attraction. Under the management of the

Plaenert & Schieck GbR, the “House of Horror” will

continue to provide creepy fun for the general public

on two storeys. The “Folterkammer” (torture chamber)

and the “Dachboden des Schreckens” (attic of horror)

provide a creepy atmosphere. In addition two live actors

haunt the inside and the outside of the attraction –

in the afternoon modestly out of consideration for

younger visitors, and horribly for adults in the evenings.

During this season, the “House of Horror” will be

presented, among other venues, in Zerbst, Kamenz,

Weinböhla, Tangermünde, and Neuruppin. ■

For some years, the Spanish showman

firm FAF has been touring the

Top Scan “Skater”. Originally, this

Mondial ride went into operation in

Germany under the name of “Salto

Mortale” in 1997.

After the first owner Mike Ahrend had

sold the ride to France, it went on to the

south of Europe; specifically to Spain.

Unfortunately, the “Salto Mortale”, which

had been effectively designed by the

Elfering firm at that time, has lost much

of its former visual glory. Merely a

couple of stars on the arm and the

occasional name sign below the seats

still hint at its German past. ■

It will not be long before the

new “Chaos Airport” Funhouse

from Andrea and Mario Haberkorn

from Erfurt will celebrate

its première. Up until now, the

Haberkorn family has been

touring with Continental Pick

stands, a kiddie ride, a pennypusher

and a snack and drink

booth. As they shut down their

large Continental Pick stand

“Gewinn Express” some time

ago, the Haberkorms decided

to have this construction rebuilt

into a Funhouse. Last

year, they eventually came up

with the idea of the “Chaos Airport”

Walkthrough construction.

The renowned Dietz ride

manufacturer from Schwalmstadt

was contracted for the reconstruction.

The theme

design of the attraction is to

depict an airport with a terminal,

a check in, a tower, a conveyor

belt, an aeroplane starting

up, and other details. The

course through the “Chaos Airport”

is to be equipped with

classic Funhouse effects.

From the terminal visitors can

choose between the course

via a slide resembling the escape

hatch of an aeroplane, or

via stairs to get out of the construction.

“Chaos Airport” is to

celebrate its première at the

Autumn Festival in Nürnberg

and will be presented at the

Oktoberfest in Erfurt. ■

Production at KMG will be operating at full capacity

until September 2014. Moreover, the ride

manufacturer announced a new ride concept for

late 2014 / early 2015 – and was pleased with the

delivery of the tenth KMG ride for its loyal Swiss

customer H.P. Maier.

Maier’s novelty called “Super Chaos” is the second

example of the “Sicko” Swing from KMG, and will

make its first appearances in Romanshorn and

Wetzikon in August. According to KMG, Maier’s

“Super Chaos” has been equipped with a number of

special features, such as an additional large name

sign and a sound system from Hofmann. As is well

known, the prototype of the Sicko, the “Air One Maxx”,

went into operation under the management of French

showman Dominique Lerendu last year. On completion

of the “Super Chaos” for H.P. Maier, the

following constructions will be built and completed at

KMG up until the end of the year: one “Speed” each

for Fiesta Shows in the USA, and Golden Way

Amusements in Australia, as well as “Freak Out”

H.P. Maier has already received his

novelty “Super Chaos” (type “Sicko”)

Swings for B&B Amusements (Australia), Alpine

Amusements and Butler Amusements (both USA).

Afterwards new constructions will be built for

customers in Germany, Great Britain, Australia,

Norway and the US up until September 2014. In late

2014 / early 2015, KMG will introduce a new ride

concept, the prototype of which will be delivered to a

customer in Australia.

At this year’s Schützenfest in Hannover, the

Kirmes & Park Revue had the opportunity to see

“on tour” the “Spass-Mobil” from the Oliver

Steinecker firm from Schwanewede near Bremen.

It is a compact Walkthrough construction with a

front length of 17 metres and a depth of 6 metres,

which was created for both young visitors and

adults - but primarily for families with children -

and went into operation at the Bremerhaven

Freimarkt 2012.

Already in 2011, the plan to build a small Walkthrough

construction was born within the Steinecker family,

who also tour three hook-a-duck constructions

throughout Northern Germany. They came into

contact with Mrs Witte from Hamburg, whose

“Geisterschiff” Walkthrough construction had been

put into storage and was up for sale. Oliver

Steinecker succeeded in convincing Mrs Witte of the

worthiness of his plans, and she finally sold him the

“Geisterschiff”. Energetically supported by his son

Lucas, it took Oliver Steinecker about half a year to

rebuild the construction himself, before the Uwe

Siefert artist workshop carried out the colourful

painting on the construction. When the new attraction

commenced operation, even the previous owner, Mrs

Witte, was highly satisfied with and positively surprised

by the result – an attraction under the motto

“The Large Flower-Power-Family Fun”, providing a

water course with rotating discs and shaking bridges,

an obstacle course through colourfully painted

corridors, and a mirror maze spanning a distance of

some 60 metres. The 1970s design results in a colourful

mix and provides a striking spot of colour on the


For the season 2014, there are plans for another

extension of the attraction, according to which the

paybox with an additional corridor is to be moved in

front of the attraction. At the same time, an additional

wagon will be incorporated into the construction,

positioned along its right side. On two levels there will

be further distance and effects added, resulting in the

front length of the construction to extend to a

maximum of 20 metres. This year, Oliver and Bettina

Steinecker, together with their son Lucas, will present

their “Spass-Mobil” at, among other venues, Bremerhaven,

Diepholz, Meppen and Vegesack. ■

At the time of going to press,

the new “Horror Lazarett”

Walkthrough construction

from Lehmann-Weeber was

nearing completion.

As planned, the final steps in

the construction could be

completed on the firm’s

premises in Worms during the

last few weeks, so that the

attraction could be ready for

the first “doctor’s consultations”

at the Erbach Wiesenmarkt.

the première in the Odenwald

region of the “Horror Lazarett”

will be published in the

Currently, everybody in the showman industry

is talking about Technical Park as

the Italian manufacturer will introduce as

many as three ride novelties this year.

The first example of the “Wild Spark” ride with

jumping movements has celebrated a

successful première in Istanbul, Turkey. Due

to the gondolas being newly constructed (of

carbon fibre and equipped with plenty of light,

as well as individual safety restraints) accommodating

three people each, the ride is hard to compare with

similar rides of this type. There are already orders for

another two “Wild Spark” rides; one of them for a

customer in South America and another for Turkey.

Also delivered to Turkey will be the first “Pegasus 16”

example, namely on 30 th August, 2013. A second

version, ordered by a customer in the USA, is currently

being built. With “Pegasus 16”, Technical Park aims

at potential customers interested in presenting an

attraction with a ride pattern differing from the constant

trend towards swing and propeller rides. The same

sales argument applies to the “Aerobat” ride, where

passengers can control their side gondola loopings

themselves. The first two constructions will be delivered

to customers in Turkey and Ukraine.

578 th Crange Kirmes

At a press conference in late April, the Herne

Lord Mayor, Horst Schiereck presented reports

and photos of the 578 th Crange Fair, celebrated

from 2 nd to 11 th August, to media representatives.

The renowned fair event, which enjoys an excellent

reputation at home and abroad, is an

indispensable promotional and economic factor

for the entire region, as money cannot only be

made on the fairground but also out of the fair

event itself. In addition to being an invaluable

advertising medium for the city, it is above all the

suppliers of almost all types of products who

benefit from the event. Moreover, the event leads

to a substantial increase in turnover of public

transport, and the taxi companies also treasure

the fair event.

“When Crange calls, people come; because they

love Crange,” said the Lord Mayor at the opening of

the press conference at the Herne city hall. This

flattering and self-confident statement is

impressively supported by facts regarding the

event. Although the duration of the event will again

be reduced by half a day this year, more than 4

million visitors are expected. Guests have to pass a

five-kilometre front length to see all the fairground

attractions. Visitors to the largest fair event in North-

Rhine Westphalia will be able to enjoy about 500

showmen with well-known and popular attractions,

among them a number of novelties for Crange, as

well as more than 50 ride and Funhouse constructions.

horse-riding programme will be held. To this day,

the horse market marks the historic origins and

preserves the tradition of the Crange event. While

the ride attractions are still closed on Thursday

evening, the Ruhr region is celebrating its most

extravagant party with all its advantages, but also

disadvantages, at the “Citizen Night” in the Bayernfesthalle

beer tent; the latter much to the detriment

of the showmen, who have to protect their attractions

from vandalism and “wild peeing”. The 578 th 10-

day Crange Fair will eventually be opened on Friday

at 2 p.m. by Lord Mayor Schiereck, accompanied

by famous politicians and sponsors, tapping the

keg inside the festival hall. As star guest at this

year’s opening event, Michael Wendler will create a

party atmosphere inside the Bayernfesthalle beer


Many Novelties

Even though it is not possible to present only novelty

attractions at an event the size of the Crange Fair,

the organiser succeeded in putting together a very

attractive entertainment contingent that will no

doubt live up to the highest expectations. One of the

most popular photographed motifs will have a new

design this year. The “Circus” Wave-Swinger and

the “Bellevue” Ferris Wheel have already been

photographed together thousands of times. This

year, the Wave-Swinger from Wendler will come to

the Rhein-Herne-Kanal, and the Ferris Wheel will

once again be the landmark towering over the fairground.

The “Parkour” round ride (Aigner) will make

a first-time appearance in Herne, and at the same

time its second appearance in North-Rhine Westphalia.

Other novelties presented will be “The King”

from Zinnecker and Ahrend’s “Flasher”. Originally,

the some 65-metre looping ride was to celebrate its

première already last year. With the “Air Race”

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

designed Miami.

Attractive Occupancy

This year Kaiser’s “Rio Rapidos” rafting ride will

provide a welcome cooling down and the “Wildwasserbahn

3” water ride from Löwenthal will also

be presented once again. In the “Loopingschaukel”

(Von Olnhausen) and the “Superhopser” (Weiß)

visitors will experience fairground nostalgia, and

Manfred Howey will celebrate a milestone anniversary

this year, with his “Happy Sailor” appearing

at Crange for the 35th time. An overview of further

ride attractions being presented: “Big Monster”

approved. The offer of Ghost Rides will remain

unchanged, with “Die große Geisterbahn” (Schütze)

and the “Geisterschlange” (Lehmann) once again

providing a creepy atmosphere, along with the

“Panic Room” (Lemoine), which celebrated its

première at Crange last year. Moreover, the show

and fun sector will be represented by the “Fight

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

(Distel), “Psychodelic” (Häsler), “Rotor” (Pluschies),

and the “Super Marci World” (Markmann). The five

“Starlight” (Petter), and Isken’s “Number 1” will retain

their traditional sites. For the younger visitors,

the Crange Fair will present 13 different kiddie rides

this year. This is a remarkable occupancy with attractions

of all kinds.

Directly at the Crange gate many new fan articles

will be available once again. The 5,000 fair pins

featuring the Crange Fair mascot, available since

April, may again be sold-out after a couple of

opening days. The popular fair and gastronomy

passes, available in an edition of 15,000 pieces

each since early July, provide substantially reduced


Supporting Programme

According to tradition, there will be two fireworks

displays; one for the opening and another one for

the finale. On the Saturday, the long festival

procession will wind through Herne, and on the Sunday

a church service will be held inside the beer

tent, which will also be the venue for committed

Herne residents on Monday, celebrating children on

Tuesday afternoon, and the coronation of the new

Ruhr King on Tuesday evening. Wednesday will be

the popular Family Day, and the Bild-Festzelthammer

will rock in the Bayernfesthalle beer tent in

the evening. As is tradition, Senior's Day will again

be held on Thursday. The ample variety of wellchosen

additional events will guarantee a substantial

visitor attendance, even on weekdays.

These were the plans at the time of going to press.

Fairground director Jens Siemer from the city authorities succeeded in

engaging several novelty attractions for the Stoppelmarkt this year,

such as the giant chain ride “Alex Airport” (Goetzke), the giant swing

“Artistico” (Köhrmann), the Funhouse constructions “Aqua Velis” (Hofmann)

and “Freddy´s Circus” (Zinnecker), the simulator “Traumgenerator”

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

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

Moreover, the popular family coaster “Wilde Maus” from Barth is an

absolute “must” at the Stoppelmarkt. Other attractions presented will be

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

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

the “Looping the Loop” (Marquis), “Schloss Dracula” (Schütze), “Octopussy”

(Markmann), “Turbo Force” (Schäfer), the “Aqua Labyrinth” (Markmann),

“Disco Swing” (Tacke), “Wellenflug” (Hanstein), “Booster” (Löffelhardt),

Musik Express (Krause), “Piraten Rutsche” (Meyer), Top Spin

(Ludewigt), and the “Live Boxen”

boxing booth from the show sector.

All in all, more than 500 showman

operations were approved to the

event, including 24 Funhouse and

large ride attractions, as well as 20

weatherproof restaurant tents.

After the historic procession with

motif floats, marching bands and

groups on foot on the Thursday, the

Stoppelmarkt will be opened by

Mayor Helmut Gels at the Amtmannsbult.

Further highlights in

the supporting programme will be

the popular backstage tour, offered

by the Verein reisender Schausteller

Vechta (Vechta Association

of touring Showmen) for the

seventh time on Friday. On the Friday

afternoon from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.

there will be a Happy Hour (pay

once – ride twice), and on Sunday

at 10 a.m., showman pastor Fuchs

will hold a church service inside

the Niedersachsenhalle. On Monday

at 7 a.m., there will also be the

traditional horse and cattle market,

where deals are still struck by

merely a handshake, and at 11

a.m. a reception will be held for the

guests of honour. Tuesday will be

the designated Family Day with

reduced prices up until 6 p.m. and

a magnificent fireworks display will

mark the end of the Stoppelmarkt

at 10 p.m.

In addition to sufficient parking

facilities available in the immediate

vicinity of the fairground, the Nordwestbahn

will take the visitors

directly to the Stoppelmarkt. Now

for the 18 th time, the Verein reisender

Schausteller Vechta will offer

the popular Stoppelmarkt pin, the

revenues from which are traditionally

used for the maintenance and

decoration of the entrance gates to

the fairground, as well as for

financing the flower arrangements

on the showman float in the Stoppelmarkt

procession, the “Kinderfinder”

(lost children) pin, and the

1,500 Stoppelmarkt gingerbread

hearts distributed to the spectators

of the procession.

The Plärrer entices

visitors to the Kleinen Exerzierplatz

in Augsburg twice a year


Text & Photo: Ralf Schmitt, Rolf Orschel

Poetic Justice: When the Augsburg Osterplärrer

begins, as it always does on a Sunday, the city’s

second major Volksfest, the Herbstplärrer will have

already opened its gates the preceding Friday,

resulting in 17 days of Volksfest fun from 23 rd

August to 8 th September.

As was the case at many other events, this year’s Osterplärrer

in Augsburg suffered from adverse midwinter

weather and loss in turnover. As a general rule, the

Augsburg public loyally returns without fail to the Volksfest

events. At this year’s Herbstplärrer, visitors will be

able to experience as many as three novelties on the fairground.

The major “Flasher” ride from the FTE Ahrend

firm, the “Comic Trip” Miami from Benedikt Hirschberg,

and the “Roll Over” Shake from Patrick Zinnecker will

make their début in Augsburg. They will be joined by

the “Expo Star” Ferris Wheel from Bruch, the Wave-Swinger

from Baumgartner, the “Breakdance” from Karoline

Diebold and the “Geheimnisse des Orients” labyrinth

from Moser. Moreover, the “Rio Rapidos” rafting ride

from Siegfried Kaiser Jnr., which was already presented

at the Osterplärrer 2012, will make another appearance

in Augsburg before it makes its way on to the Munich

Oktoberfest. Naturally, there will also be numerous kiddie

rides and concession stalls within all sectors, and the

gastronomic operations at the Plärrer will offer the usual

spicy specialities and smooth, delicious beer. Opening

hours at the Herbstplärrers: Monday to Friday from midday

to 11 p.m., Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m.,

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

according to official records, the first Herbstplärrer was

held as far back as 1878 – thus the event is already 135

years old.The Augsburg Plärrer on the Kleinen Exerzierplatz

fairground entices the public twice a year. ■

A painting from the

good old days: Showman

Loosen touring the dodgem


On the occasion of the 375 th

anniversary of the Düren Annakirmes,

there were many additional

events added to the usual

line up. This most outstanding

and popular event in the town’s

calendar entices some 1 million

visitors to the fairground on the

Rur banks every year.

Exhibition: Showman Art

The anniversary exhibition is

still open up until the 18 th August

To get the public attuned to the anniversary fair

beginning on 27 th July, the Leopold-Hoesch-

Museum in the Düren town centre presented a

special exhibition. In the museum, many exhibits

were effectively displayed on several floors. The

exhibition, professionally laid out and operated

down to the smallest detail, documented the life and

work of the showmen in the last few centuries. The

exhibits were put together from other museums,

private collections and loans made available by the

showmen. Moreover, private individuals displayed

an ample selection of pictures. Outstanding exhibits

were the Moppen booth (sweets) from 1935 and the


historic Swing Boat from 1929. Old dodgem cars,

mounts, artwork, carousel horses, figures and

decoration elements take visitors on an interesting

journey through time. Moreover, many historic

photos from all sections of the showman industry

were effectively presented. A number of old fairground

models in various scales rounded off the

well-worthwhile exhibition. In addition to the

stationary objects, there were also moving pictures.

In the exhibition rooms films from the Düren Annakirmes

throughout the last few decades were

presented, providing a 'goose pimply' atmosphere.

Visitors were astounded by the attractions that have

appeared in Düren throughout the past decades.

Historic Fair

Another highlight to mark the anniversary fair was a

historic fair held around the Leopold-Hoesch-

Museum from 28 th June to 7 th July. Rides presented

were the “Selbstfahrer”, a nostalgic Chair-o-Plane,

the “Moulin Rouge” show booth, a nostalgic Ferris

carousel from the Katzschmann family from Mittweida

in Saxony, which was presented in North-

Rhine Westphalia for the first time. The Kirmes &

Park Revue has already published a detailed report

about this carousel. Nonetheless, its unique and

lovingly made mounts are always well worth seeing.

Funfair atmosphere with

old organs

On the occasion of the 75 th anniversary of the

Stuttgart Frühlingsfest this year, visitors were

able to be taken on a journey through the

history of the event as a result of a large

number of loans provided by the showmen from

the “Ländle”, as Baden-Württemberg is lovingly

called by its residents. The Historic Wasen

gave visitors free-of-charge insights into the

history of the colourful and fascinating world of

the showman industry.

From 20 th April to 9 th May between 1 p.m. and 8

p.m., visitors had the opportunity to get a look into

the good old days and gather numerous impressions

of the fairgrounds from the year dot. On an

area of some 1,200 square metres, the showmen

presented historic tractors and caravans, Galloper

mounts, fairground organs, carousel decoration,

advertising posters and an exhibition tent displaying

snapshots and countless pictures. Most of

them were black-and-white photos larded with

many stories of showmen and their families.

Wasen fans were also given an understanding of

sound and informative details. The exhibition was

very well received, and despite decreasing visitor

numbers due to the weather, the Historic Wasen

was a big success. Coming from the car park area,

it was located directly at the entrance to the festival

grounds, where a large number of pictures and

photos on the fences enticed visitors to the exhibition.

Passing through the festively decorated

entrance gate, visitors found themselves in the

middle of the exhibition. Immediately, their attention

was drawn to a beautiful and well-kept

“salon caravan” from Heinrich Mack, which showed

the limited space showmen on tour used to live

in. The caravan was built for the Rick firm from



Old mounts spread a

nostalgic flair

The way showmen lived

earlier when touring

Hannover in 1927, and was given to Roland Koch

as a wedding present in the 1960s.

Today his son Thomas Koch is the owner of this

gem, which was lovingly restored and is not

exhibited very often. Various historic fairground

organs accompanied the event with their classic

tunes. A special example was placed in the

entrance area of the tent. It was built by the Ruth

und Sohn firm and presented itself in perfect

condition. Both older and younger visitors lingered

and stayed in front of it for a long time to listen to

the music.

The large number of tractors and traction units

were also much admired and examined. On show

were several different examples once used to

transport the attractions from one fairground to

another. Among the typical showman traction units

from that time numbered, for example, the 40-HP

Hanomag R40, built in 1948 and the 1950s Deutz

built by the Klöckner-Humboldt-Deutz AG, which is

lovingly preserved and cared for by Robert Lehmann.

A visual highlight was the Lanz Bulldog HR

7 from 1939. Another much admired vehicle was a

Kramer all-wheel-drive, still requiring some restoration.

Panels provided a lot more information than

only HP, drive and braking systems. In the outside

area, there was a number of more modern traction

units used for transport to this very day, such as an

MB Actros 1851 from the showman enterprise

Joachim Kritz & Sohn.

Tradition continued inside the festival tent, where

several precious objects and many requisites were

exhibited, showing the history of the showman

industry from the 19 th century to this day. Moreover,

a number of old dodgem track chaises, swing

boats, wooden horses, and historic, original front

A reunion with old round

rides with historic




Tradition continues in

the festival tent

An aerial view of the

Wasen in the 70s

parts with the name sign “Der wilde Weinberg”

could be admired. Many pictures on the walls

showed the development of the dodgem tracks

and also different Switchbacks, which used to be

built only from wood. Also exhibited were some

modern ride and funhouse attractions, which

provided an appealing contrast. The king-sized

“showman book” containing photos of regional

showman families and their ride attractions may

well have been a unique exhibit. A lot of background

information on different showman generations,

valuable information about the years the

individual attractions were bought right up to today

– everything was listed in chronological order.

There was even a detailed overview of the number

of Ghost rides from the Lehmann family. In addition

to the “Geister Schlange” known today, photos of

the “Geister Grotte”, the “Geister Schlucht”, and

the “Geister Burg” documented the host of attractions

from the family enterprise. Moreover, there

were many photos from the Fritz Kinzler family,

regularly presenting current and breath-taking

rides in Stuttgart, ranging from the “Ski Lift”

purchased in 1963, the “Jumbo Jet” from 1970, the

“Looping Star” (1978), the “Korkenzieher-Achterbahn”,

and the “Heartbreaker” (1980) to the

current “Breakdance No. 1”. In addition to the ride

and funhouse attractions there were also pictures

from many a snack and sweets booth.

The Historic Wasen was a successful exhibition

with many relics and documents from the good old

days, mainly collected and arranged by the showmen

Stefan Kinzler, Joachim Kritz, Nico Lustenauer,

and Roland Maier.

New: The “Slush & Eis

Factory” from Jasmin Scherrle

At the Würzburg Frühjahrsvolksfest,

Jasmin Scherrle from Stuttgart

opened her new “Slush &

Eis Factory” attraction. After the

so-called “pre-opening” in

Würzburg, the attraction was

officially inaugurated at the subsequent

venue, the Frühlingsfest

in Stuttgart.

The young woman has been touring

as an independent showwoman

for nine years now. Four

generations of her family have already

travelled with ice cream wagons to many prestigious

events throughout the entire federal territory.

The new sales wagon was built by the Dietz firm

according to the suggestions and ideas of the customer.

Its modern visual appearance with ice cream

and slush motifs in the front area is highly appealing,

and the gearwheels in the upper front area, emphasizing

the “factory” theme, are an eye catcher. After sundown,

the LED and neon lighting make a very harmonious

impression, and the interior lighting of the

“Slush & Eis Factory” is equipped with day and night

mode settings. For the first time, the Dietz firm has incorporated

a remote-controlled “Mover-System”,

retracting both axles into an attraction. As a result, the

sales wagon can be hydraulically lowered to the

ground without a problem. Apart from various types of

ice cream, the product range also includes the

“Factory Twister Eis” which can optionally be mixed

with Smarties, roasted almonds, biscuits or fresh fruits

in a kind of shaker. Also offered are refreshing slush

drinks in many flavours and different sizes. The

première in Stuttgart was followed by appearances in

Freiburg, Nördlingen, Pforzheim and Würzburg. This

season, Jasmin Scherrle will present her new attraction

in, among other venues, Hof, Crailsheim and at the

Cannstatt Wasen in Stuttgart. The wagon has ground

measurements of 7 x 3.50 metres, a height of 6.20

metres, and a power demand of 20 kW.

Christmas Market.

The attraction which naturally is

also used on Volksfests and other events, is built as

a container on a wagon, is hydraulically folded, and

offers place for up to 20 guests. Standing and

sitting possibilities invite visitors to linger

and enjoy. The sitting area is comfortable

with stools that are covered with artificial fur

that emphasis the flair of a "forest hut". The

outside area during the première in Mannheim

was orientated on the theme "fairytale

forest" with the roof windows installed at an


Moose "Manni" quickly became the public's darling,

humming lively songs from under the roof. ■

Since summer 2012 in

Germany: Nickel’s

“Fliegender Teppich”

In the summer of 2012, Romano

Nickel from Ingelheim took over

a “Fliegender Teppich” ("Flying

Carpet") from the Schäfer family

from Switzerland. In Germany,

this ride type is primarily associated

with the construction of

the same name built by Zierer.

The “Fliegende Teppich” from

Nickel, however, was built by the

former Italian manufacturer SDC

– and thereby is a truly exotic


Flying Carpet

Text & Photos: Norman Vogt

Romano Nickel with his

partner Jessica Frankholz

Under the management of its previous owner

Schäfer, the ride built in 1984 was a very

popular guest at many events in Switzerland, and

that was one of the reasons why he remained true to

it for almost 30 years. The SDC attraction is slightly

similar in construction to the carpet version created

by the German Fähtz firm. In contrast to other

carpet examples, its gondola accommodating 40

people is completely roofed. The ride was built onto

two trailers, which are incorporated into the

construction. Building up the 20 x 8 metre construction,

which according to the manufacturer has

electrical requirements of 180 kW and a height of 14

metres, requires a small crane. The backflash,

featuring typical oriental motifs from the Arabian

Nights legend, comes from the 1980s. The missing

name sign is currently being rewired and is to be

mounted in the near future.



As a special feature, the

gondola accommodating 40

people is roofed over

For Romano Nickel, who

operates the attraction together

with his partner Jessica

Frankholz, it is the first ride that

the couple have owned. After

the takeover last year, the

attraction was built up on the

premises before it was presented at a small event in

Bendorf for the first time. Behind the backflash,

there are two electrical control boxes holding the

entire electronic control system for the ride sequence

and the lighting system. Both drive motors

are located on the two supports, to which the arms

are mounted. In addition to other planned changes,

the backflash is also to be newly painted before too

long. By the way, the gap in the backflash originally

used to be the exit. Nowadays however, passengers

embark and disembark in the front section.

While it takes one day to build up, dismantling is

accomplished within 7 to 8 hours. Romano Nickel will

tour this Italian version of the “Fliegender Teppich”

mainly throughout South-West Germany. ■ Side view during the

In October 2011, Robert Hoffmann founded his

own showman business with the “Formel 1

Monaco” kiddie track ride he took over from his

grandfather, showman Hans Dieter Splitt. Originally,

this kiddie ride had been a kiddie dodgem track

built by the Ihle firm in Bruchsal for the showman

enterprise Levi/Stoner. In the early 1980s, the

kiddie dodgem track was rebuilt into a kiddie track

ride by a ride manufacturer in Spain, with the track

and the course platform being integrated into the

former dodgem track. After its completion, the

“Formel 1 Monaco” caused a veritable 'kiddie track

ride boom' in Germany, together with the “Zauberwelt”

from the Levy showman enterprise, the first

kiddie track ride touring throughout Germany,

which had also been rebuilt from a kiddie dodgem

track in Spain. The Levy/Stoner firm operated the

kiddie ride for about 7 years before it was taken

over by Hans Dieter Splitt in the early 1990s, who

went on to successfully operate the construction

for more than 20 years. After the takeover, Robert

Hoffmann loaded the kiddie track ride on a threeaxle

roller. Due to the lack of space, he occasionally

builds up the construction without a roof, which

is quite risky though, as water finds its way into the

upper track in rain. “Formel 1 Monaco” has ground

measurements of 18.5 x 10 metres and electrical

requirements of 40 kW.

Takeover at the Beginning of 2013

Early this year, Robert Hoffmann took over the

“Abenteuerland” kiddie track ride, built for the

Augsburg showman Josef Diebold by the Dietz

firm in Schwalmstadt in 1997, in order to be more



“Formel 1 Monaco”

is presented without a roof

flexible on tour and to expand his business. As the

construction was handed over in first-class

condition, no technical or visual overhaul was required.

It will not be long though before several

additional decoration elements will be mounted, to

give the kiddie track ride a distinctly personal

touch. Due to a staff and baggage container being

built on an interchangeable flat-bed unit hauled by

a traction unit, relocating the kiddie track ride requires

only one transport. Robert Hoffmann presents

the two kiddie track rides together with his

girlfriend Diana Neutzsch, mainly at Volksfest

events in Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, Thuringia and

Brandenburg. “Abenteuerland” has ground

measurements of 14 x 7.5 metres and electrical

requirements of 40 kW.

Over the years, the Salzburg Dult, known as the

largest Volksfest in Western Austria, has become a

well-established event. This year, the event celebrated

a special anniversary, namely, the 40 th Dult

held in the Salzburg exhibition centre, where everything

was dedicated to a fair section, festival halls,

market merchants, partying and numerous special

events for nine days, from 18 th to 26 th May.

Despite the sometimes rainy and stormy weather, the

event enticed 131,000 visitors, much to the delight of

the organiser, “Our region is not frightened off by low

temperatures!” This year, a long procession with more

than 650 members of the association followed by an

opening ceremony with 500 guests of honour directly

at the fairground heralded the beginning of the Salzburg

Volksfest. Even this opening march through the

medieval city centre caused a furore, due not least to

the large number of spectators. It's not for nothing that

the Salzburg Dult is known as the largest Volksfest in

Western Austria, as visitors were not only awaited by

more than 160 showmen, market merchants and

booths, but also enthralled by a well-thought-out and

attractive supporting programme for nine days, be it

the Traditional Costumes Day, Family Day, Fire Brigade

Day, Seniors' Day, or the Country Weekend held on the

second Dult weekend. The Dult organisers succeeded

in attracting all kinds of target groups to the festival

area and in creating a real synergy between the

festival halls, fairground and market hall. Particularly

well-received by the exhibitors and the showmen were

the promotional tools with a voucher booklet, the expanded

family programme and the company events.

As a result, fixed bookings for the Dult from renowned

companies could be extended and increased. “We

owe the large number of bookings to the reopened

market hall with free entry, the good live musical acts,

the culinary delicacies inside the festival halls and the

frenetic sales talks in the run-up to the Dult,” said

Michaela Glinz, in charge of the Dult, which will be held

from 7 th to 15 th June next year.

The Heddesdorf Pfingstkirmes, held from 17 th to

21 st May this year, combines ancient customs with

a modern fair event. Every year, the well-known

and popular event entices not only the residents,

but also many guests from the surrounding

towns, to the Pfingstwiese-fairground.

It must be said though, that the unpaved fairground

is in a desolate condition. For some years now the

showmen have fought in vain for improved

conditions of the fairground, but due to empty

coffers there is unlikely to be any improvement in the

near future. Moreover, there have been ongoing rumours

that due to a garden show, the complete area,

or at least a large part of it, will fairly soon no longer

be available for events. For the second time now the

fair event already began on the Friday before Pentecost,

and closed on the following Tuesday evening.

To mark the traditional opening on Saturday, the Heddesdorf

fraternity and the Pfingstreiter (Pentecost

Riders) invited the public to the “Nobersch Bank”,

whereas the second part of the opening was

celebrated on the fairground afterwards. Two heavy

horses drew a decorated festival wagon followed by

the Pfingstreiter Burschenschaften (Pentecost Rider

fraternities), local politicians, the showmen and

many guests. Afterwards, the event was officially

opened by the Mayor tapping the keg and the traditional

cannon salute. The closing day was once

again completely dedicated to the Pfingstreiter. At 10

a.m. they set out for the Pfingstritt (Pentecost Ride)

at the “Vadderdach” on Bimsstraße, from where they

first ride to Rommersdorf and then on to Engers,

where the riders collect their tribute around noon.

This way, an ancient tradition of the Heddesdorf

fraternities and the Engers Bürgerverein (Engers

resident association) is preserved. Too bad though

that the Pfingstreiter do not celebrate their own party


with music, dancing, and food and drink on the


This year’s Pentecost Fair was much more attractive

than in the last few years, with some 70 showmen

presenting their attractions on the 15,000-m 2 fairground.

Most prominent among them were the cosy

beer gardens, which were very well received.

The area was effectively laid out as a classic circuit

course. The “Movie Star” Ferris Wheel (Henschel)

provided its passengers with a perfect view of the

attractions offered, namely the “Spinning Racer”

coaster (Bruch), “Circus Circus” (Bruch/Gründler),

“High” (Oberschelp), “Flash” (Weber), “Turbo Force”

(Schäfer), and Dodgem Track (Meyer). With the

“Pirates Adventure” (Schneider), “Remmi Demmi”

(Janßen), “Panic Room” (Lemoine), and the “Motodrom”

(Ganslmeier), there was something of a

surfeit of attractions from the show and fun sector.

The event was intensively and prominently advertised,

with large advertising billboards being put up

mainly in the more frequented areas. Well worth

praising was the advertising campaign organised by

the showmen Lanser, Schunk, Bruch and Meyer in

the Neuwied and Heddesdorf pedestrian precincts,

where 90 large gingerbread hearts placed in the

retailers’ shop windows promoted the Pentecost Fair.

The stakes for next year's event are quite high now.

However, visitor numbers proved that the Pentecost

Fair certainly presents strong potential. The challenge

now is to keep up the standard achieved. ■

Schifferstadt is located in the Rhine-Neckar metropolis

region, in the heart of the Central Palatinate.

Every year in early June, the 20,000-resident town celebrates

its Rettichfest, or Radish Festival. The name

comes from the fact that Schifferstadt is one of the

largest radish growing areas in Germany. This year,

the festival began on 31 st May and ended on 4 th June.

After the opening, the supporting programme, which

changes daily, offered an ample choice of events once

again this year. Be it the traditional Rettichlauf on Saturday,

the open shopping Sunday, or the Family Day on

the last opening day, they all spurred visitors to take part.

Unfortunately, this was not reflected by the showmen’s

revenues, which were given as quite poor at the close of

the event. However, this was not new for the participating

showmen, who have experienced a steady decrease

in visitor numbers and therefore also in turnover, for some

time now. However, it must be said that the promotion of

the event was woefully inadequate; one would imagine

that a respectable placement of advertising in the local

press and a satisfactory poster promotion would have

been quite “manageable”. On the fairground a number

of appealing ride attractions was presented once again.

For the second time, Wingender’s “Air Crash” appeared

in Schifferstadt. In addition to a nostalgic dodgem track

visitors encountered the “Himalaya” Switchback from

Michael Spangenberger as well as the “Break Dance”

(Spangenberger). The younger visitors enjoyed two

classic rides and a bungee construction, and the fairground

was replete with booths and stalls. ■

The opening day of this year’s Sterkrade Fronleichnamskirmes,

held from 29 th May to 3 rd June,

suffered from heavy rainfall. The fairground holy

eve, highly popular with the Sterkrade citizens,

was “washed away”. Heavy downpours and

autumn temperatures spoiled the usually happy

fairground atmosphere.

Nevertheless, a few tireless visitors met at “their”

beverage stalls and resolutely remained there, as

only very few visitors wanted to stroll across the fairground.

While the gastronomic operations attained

at least some revenues, the other participants earned

hardly any money at all. Rain was followed by

sunshine though, and the fairground was virtually

besieged by masses of visitors on Thursday. From

the city and from all over the Ruhr region visitors

rushed to the Sterkrade district to happily celebrate.

The rides operated to the limits of

their capacity and the sales stalls

and gastronomic operations were

quite crowded. On Corpus

Christi Day, not only did the sky

brighten up but also the mood of

the showmen. In the following

days, Sterkrade was spared any

rainfall and the fairground was

very well attended. Therefore,

the review of the fair was quite

positive. According to the organiser,

visitor attendance was up on

the previous year, exceeding the

one million mark. However, the

financial results achieved are

much more important than visitor


The largely successful layout of

the Corpus Christi Day Fair

matched up to expectations. The

novelty attraction “Alpen-Hotel” would certainly

have been more effective on a top-end site though.

Markmann’s “Octopussy” was built up on the site

where the “Krake” has already made successful

appearances several times. Due to this arrangement,

the attraction could not provide a novelty

effect however. With only one side of the ramp between

the market and the station being occupied

this year, this area was better presented and less

crowded. The fair attractions usually being presented

in this area were built up near the station this time.

Also interesting were corresponding entries in the

fairground forums on the Internet, which revealed

the common desire for a changed layout of the fairground.

The market and the Hirschhügel fairgrounds

were particularly criticised. Some one

million visitors seemed not to be bothered, however.

From Thursday they celebrated the traditional

From 24 th to 26 th May, the 40 th Leineweber-Markt took

place in the Bielefeld city centre. The city festival

was held for the first time in 1974, when it marked

three occasions; namely, the 25 th anniversary of the

German Basic Law, the visit of then Federal

President Gustav Heinemann and the beginning of

a Berlin Week for showmen, trade and gastronomy.

Since 1975, the city festival is called “Leineweber-


The three-day event is organised by the Bielefeld

Marketing GmbH. On six stages and three action

areas, more than 1,000 actors offered a first class programme.

The colourful mixture of live music, street magicians,

acrobats and fairground attractions, as well as

the offering of many interesting delicacies, was well

received by the visitors. While a nostalgic market with

Nessel’s horse carousel and the nostalgic Ferris Wheel

from Feldmann was held on Jahnplatz, Krause’s Musik-

Express and the “Formel 1” dodgem track (Schneider)

awaited the public at the city hall. At the Kunsthalle the

“Movie Star” Ferris Wheel from Henschel provided

visitors with a view across Bielefeld, and the Jodokus

Kirchplatz accommodated a medieval market for the

first time. The younger visitors were able to enjoy a

pony ride, walking-waterballs and various kiddie rides

built up in the city centre. A number of sweet stalls,

games and sales booths rounded of the entertainment

contingent. Unfortunately, the planned target of

300,000 visitors was not achieved. According to the

organiser, adverse weather conditions – continuous

rain and low temperatures – resulted in noticeably

fewer visitors coming to the 40 th Leineweber-Markt. ■

“Things never turn out the way you expect” – a

saying that perfectly defines the changed selection

of attractions presented at the Halver Kirmes

(31 st May to 3 rd June). There were significant

changes in the list of participants published by the

Halver city authorities, due to the cancellation at

short notice by the rafting ride and three other previously

announced attractions.

With neither the “Tornado”, “Scheibenwischer” and

“Sky-Flyer”, nor the “Raftingbahn” (heralded as the

main attraction to appear at Halver), the usually

perfectly laid out fairground offered noticeable failings

this time. Bonner’s “Breakdance”, the newly

added “Twister” from Freiwald, and the “Sky Glider”

(Prumbaum) for example, were built up in direct

vicinity to each other on limited space, while no large

ride attraction at all was presented on Hauptstraße.

The “Miami” from Freiwald stepped in as a replacement

on the site in front of Sparkasse building, with

Weber’s “Rocket” taking its passengers high up to the

sky on the top-end site. Built up in the area of the

former railway station were the “Drive in” dodgem

track (Schmidt) and the “Booster” (Havermann-Spelbrink).

Moreover, visitors were able to enjoy the

Simulator and once again the Musik Express from

Wendler erected on the former loading platform, with

the Musik Express being partially hidden by the

large “Happy Family” Funhouse from Heine. Built up

with its narrow side facing the circuit, the latter was

not very effective though; certainly an avoidable layout


Cancellations and Layout Misjudgement

In short, there were many inconsistencies in Halver.

Not everything can be excused

by cancellations, however.

One would be well-advised

not to contract ride attractions

that are not already on


Due to good weather conditions,

the showmen - who also

benefited from the slightly

lower number of ride attractions

offered - achieved

satisfying results. One can

only hope that Halver will be

spared from cancellations

next year so that the citycentre

fair can be laid out

according to its usual quality

Even prior to the event the arrangement was just

perfect, promising the most attractive fairground

for years, a new and reliable beer tent operator, as

well as the “Oberfrankenausstellung” consumer

fair with free entry. However, rainfall and low temperatures

quickly shattered all hopes for an outstanding

and enjoyable event.

In the end, Jan Kempgens and Marc Ermer from the organising

“Bayreuth Marketing & Tourismus GmbH” were

quite disappointed, as the dismal weather gave rise to

disastrous results. They were however quite satisfied

with the choice of the new beer tent patron, Jochen Mörz

from Allgäu, who really hit it off well with the people in

Upper Franconia. His daughter Nadine Mörz, in charge

of the organization and management, enthused about

a cooperative partnership lasting well into the future.

While the strong demand for food, especially for traditional

hax'n spiced pork and cheese was a surprise for

her, she was at the same time critical of the burgeoning

choice of snack booths on the fairground. Jan Kempgens,

for whom it was his eleventh Volksfest as the fifth

beer tent patron, understandably hopes for a more permanent

solution with regard to the participating publicans.

Although there was no Ferris Wheel on the fairground,

it was nonetheless the most common motif in all

advertising media. The fairground was characterised

by three major rides; namely, Goetzke’s “Star Flyer”,

Ahrend’s “Flasher” and “Der Burner” from Zinnecker, as

well as Vorlop’s large coaster “Rock & Roller”. The show

and fun sector was conspicuously represented by the

boxing booth from Lemoine-Heinen, Fellerhoff’s

“Geisterstadt”, Hofmann-Jehn’s “Freddy’s Company”,

and Kinzler’s “Omni”. Highly successful was the festival

procession at the beginning of the event, which is growing

ever longer and boasting more participants every

year. Both the opening fireworks display on Friday and

the one held at the finale on the eleventh opening day

were accompanied by rainfall. What a pity.

The second Wuppertal Mega Fair was held with

the benefit of almost impeccable fairground

weather from 7 th to 10 th June. Several thousands

of visitors rushed to the stadium at the zoo to

celebrate a peaceful, four-day Volksfest event.

“It was a peaceful family event that exceeded all our

expectations,” Peter Fuhrmann, Chairman of the

Wuppertal Showman Association summarized the 2 nd

Wuppertal Mega Fair in his review. The Showman

Association did not rest on its laurels with regard to

the success of the première fair, but further increased

the already high advertising budget, particularly as

the novelty effect of the fairground had already been

exhausted. Preparations for the 2 nd edition of the event

began right after last year’s fair. The event was once

again scheduled for the second Sunday after Corpus

Christi Day, immediately after the Sterkrade

Fronleichnamskirmes. In response to popular

demand a section of the additional football pitch was

also built up on this time. Preparations for the Wuppertal

fair focussed on extensive advertising

measures including 650 posters, huge displays put up

at the cable car stations and 31 commercials on the

local radio stations, as well as advertisements placed

in the Westdeutsche Zeitung newspaper. The event

was closely covered by the Wuppertal press and radio

stations even during the build up, and was even

covered live from the fairground by the regional WDR

television station in its series “Lokalzeit Bergisch

Land”. From some 500 applications received after the

invitation for tender, 100 of them arriving only two

weeks before the opening, it was possible to engage

the “Spinning Racer” from Bruch as the main attraction.

Thus a large coaster eventually came to the

‘cable car city’ once again after a break of 30 years.

The coaster quickly turned into the promotional

emblem for the fair, soaring 55-metres high up into the

sky in close proximity to the cable car from Tuesday


The area on the Wupper was successfully laid out

once again, with the “Pirates Adventure” (Schneider)

and the “Venezianische Pferdekarussell” (Langenberg)

built up directly in front of the cable car station.

The first site inside the stadium accommodated the

“Kettenflieger” (Fuhrmann), “Booster Maxxx G4”

(Hoefnagels/Denies), a kiddie carousel, and the

“Circus Circus” from Bruch/Gründler. The “Saturn-

Flieger” from Bauer was once again placed in front of

the stadium stand, and in the section constituted by

the additional football pitch, visitors encountered a

kiddie ride and the mega “Konga” Swing from Küchenmeister

- another novelty for Wuppertal - and the

aforementioned “Spinning Racer” Coaster caused

quite a furore directly on the pitch. Also presented at

the event was the Simulator from Sterzenbach.

Novelties to be admired among the concession stalls

were Plesser’s Brezel, von der Gathen’s Arcade

Machine, Ritter’s Bar and “Marktplatz Nr. 1”, to name

but a few. The opening day turned out to be a the first

highlight, with the crowd quickly filling the fairground

even in the afternoon, leaving barely any room to

move for the new synchronous fireworks display in the

evening. Saturday however suffered from the hot

weather, which kept visitors from attending the fairground.

On Sunday, the fairground was once again

well frequented, just as on the Family Day on Monday.

The second Wuppertal Mega Fair was opened by DSB

President Albert Ritter. Throughout the quiet event the

police did not have to deal with any fights, thefts, or

damage to property. There were not even any

complaints about the noise and positively worth

mentioning was the fact that showmen left the fairground

well-swept and clean.

Summary: a four-day family-friendly fair without any

unpleasant incidents, ideal fairground weather, satisfied

showmen, and enthralled visitors. Truly, the 2 nd

Wuppertal Mega Fair was real fun! All in all, the costly

advertising measures, almost reaching the financial

limits of the Showman Association, have paid off in

numerous ways, bringing the event into the gaze of

the Wuppertal public for this one, fun week. ■

Those who think that carnival is the only event

happily celebrated in Mainz are quite wrong. The

Johannisnacht event, which was held from 21 st to

24 th June this year, is highly popular with the

“Meenern” - as Mainz residents are affectionately

called. Therefore it is not surprising that the city

centre and the banks of the Rhine are buzzing with

activity and that the party goes on far into the night

for four days.

Not only locals like to go to their festival, but indeed

people come from all over the entire greater region to

join in an excess of fun and frolics. Undoubtedly, the

fact that some 500,000 visitors are welcomed to the 4-

day event every year speaks for itself. The Johannisnacht

is organised by the Mainz city authorities, who

also choose the attractions presented at its largest fair

event every year. The event offered a harmonious

mixture once again, and this year enjoyed sunny, dry

weather and pleasant temperatures. Therefore it was

no wonder that visitors rushed to the festival area and

enjoyed the fine entertainment contingent.

On the Saturday evening there was barely any room

left in the city area and visitors had to have a lot of time

and patience. The programme offered typical Johannisnacht

attractions, such as the jolly and watery

“printers baptism”, also known as Gautschen (an

ancient trade guild custom, according to which the

sins of the years of apprenticeship and the lead dust

is washed off), as well as theatre, cabaret, jugglers, live

musical acts on six stages, the cabaret night, the

Johannis book market and the artist market on the

banks of the Rhine.

Among the ride and funhouse attractions spread along

the banks of the Rhine and in the city centre, were a

number of novelties to be tried out. Zinnecker’s “Der

Burner”, with long queues forming in front of its

operator stand after sundown numbered among the

most spectacular among them. Another new feature

and also very well frequented was Fellerhoff’s “Geisterstadt”

attraction, which provided a creepy atmosphere

and was built up in Mainz for the first time.

Göbel’s Ferris Wheel, numbered among the regular

guests in Mainz, as did the “Super-Wellenflug”, which

provided visitors with a magnificent view across the

Rhine. The selection of attractions built up on the

banks of the Rhine was rounded off by Sottile’s

“Simulator”, Barth’s “Skooter“, Wingender’s “Break

Dance” and various kiddie rides. In the city centre,

visitors encountered further kiddie rides, as well as the

“Aqua Velis” Walkthrough construction from Hofmann

and the “Show Time” show booth from Haas, which

was slightly hidden away and could not be discovered

at first glance. Well worth seeing was the fireworks

display on the Rhine, which was held on Monday and

heralded the closing of the 46 th Johannisnacht event.

The festival was a great success for all the participants,

and after the long, lean period with snow, rain and low

temperatures in spring, satisfying financial results

were eventually achieved again. “I would not mind if

this went on up until the Christmas Markets,” said a

good-humoured ride owner – starting up his fully

occupied ride.

The Summer Festival in the “colourful town in the

Harz Uplands” located at the foot of Mount

Brocken, was held from 1 st to 9 th June under the

management of Mario Siewiera from Quedlinburg.

After a promising start, the public’s interest in the

event noticeably dwindled after Family Day.

What does the popular tourist destination with its wellpreserved

historic town centre and its elaborately

restored timber-framed houses offer? The well-known

sights, such as the town hall on the market square -

which was officially documented for the first time in

1277 and ranks among the most beautiful town halls

in Europe - the leaning house, the smallest house, the

oldest house and the castle, the latter majestically

enthroned above the town, entice masses of

domestic and foreign guests at any time of the year.

While there were pushing crowds in the pedestrian

precinct at the time of our visit on the second Saturday,

the fairground on the castle car park in Halberstädter

Straße (properly paved) only a few minutes’

walk away, was not really such a crowd puller. Due to

generally low visitor attendance, the showmen have

not attached great importance to the Volksfest events

in Wernigerode for some time now. As a result, it was

no surprise that only three large attractions were presented

this year; namely, Hermann’s “Magic”, Welte’s

“Jaguar” and the labyrinth “Atlantis – Die versunkene

Stadt” (Siewiera/Drechsler). The younger visitors were

able to enjoy Eckermann’s kiddie railway, the kiddie

track ride from Pönitz, and the horse carousel from

Drechsler/Siewiera. Moreover, a Continental Pick

stand, a bowling alley, a ball throwing stall and a

shooting gallery were built up in the circuit course,

along with two snack booths and a sweets stall that

provided visitors with food and drinks. Despite the low

number of visitors during the second half of the

summer festival, the participating showmen fared

quite well due to relatively short journeys. ■

On the eleventh and final opening day of the largest

Volksfest event in Lower Franconia, the showmen

were well satisfied with their financial results.

After bitter disappointments at previous events,

such as in Erlangen and Bayreuth, business proved

much better in Schweinfurt.

With 58 attractions - among them “real highlights”,

such as Bruch’s “Alpina-Bahn”, Blume’s “Tower Event

Center” and Lehmann’s “Geister-Schlange” - the fairground

on Niederwerrner Straße was well occupied.

Moreover, the Ahrend firm had built up its “Flasher” for

particularly daring visitors. The Bavarian State Exhibition,

under the motto “Main and Sea”, will entice

visitors to the 'city of ball bearings' up until October,

and for Frank Reppert, head of the organising Office

of Public Order and Environment and concerned very

much with the issue of water consumption, it made

sense to adopt an “aquatic theme” for the 104 th Volks-

fest event. Examples for this approach were Markmann’s

“The Real Nessy” swing and his “Aqua-Labyrinth”,

Krug’s “Beachwalking”, Henn’s “Lustige Seewelt”,

Howey’s “Happy Sailor”, and Ahrend’s “Käpt’n

Jimmy” – unfortunately, the latter two were placed

directly opposite each other. Many cities have already

had to cope with the withdrawal of the Americans, and

now it is Schweinfurt’s turn. As a result, huge areas will

be available for new purposes. Even a new fairground

altogether is being considered, even though there are

at present no details, and currently, nobody is particularly

eager to move location. Very well established

is the “Comedy-Frühschoppen” (morning beer and

comedy show) with free entry to the Hahn beer tent and

an exquisite performance by the impersonator, Wolfgang

Krebs. Another two classic promotional media

for the Schweinfurt Volksfest have lost none of their

appeal; namely the lottery inside the beer tent (1 st

prize: a cruise in the Caribbean) and the 16-page

Volksfest paper as an insert in the daily press at the

beginning of the Volksfest. Positively noticeable was

the expansion of the so far limited toilet facilities by

Helmut Dölle and his hygiene team. Robert Orth,

contact person for the showmen of many years standing

- legendary for always finding a solution to their

problems - on the occasion of his resignation, received

fulsome praise from the mayor in his opening

address, evoking a long and well-deserved applause. ■

there was some commotion within the organising

came back again. At this point in time, the beer tent

from Franz Widmann, the large water ride from

Löwenthal, as well as a number of games booths had

already been built up. Some showmen were able to

remove their booths in time and the city authorities

succeeded in dismantling their power boxes, before

the river level rose again. The expert surfboarder

Philipp Schramm used the Main flood to race across

the water-flooded fairground accompanied by a

camera. Towed by a car, he presented acrobatic

tricks – and the local press reported on the “Crazy


Trip” across the fairground. After the water had

slowly receded and the fairground was reasonably

dry again, the 75 operations were able to build up on

the 40,000-m_ area, and there were no further

obstacles in presenting the 86 th Volksfest.

The organiser was able to present many novelties

this year. Believe it or not, as many as eight

débutantes provided the visitors with ample variety

throughout the 11-day event. At 7 p.m., the event was

officially opened by Mayor Klaus Herzog inside the

beer tent, before the brilliant fireworks display was

held in the late hours. Among the further highlights

there were the Senior's Day on Monday, the Day of

Companies and Associations, the Family Day, as

well as the closing fireworks display with illumination

of the castle on 24 th June, which once again enticed

many spectators. The Ferris Wheel occupied a new

site this year. It was built up on the other bank of the

Main where the “Bellevue” Ferris Wheel from the

Bruch firm had previously been built up, causing

quite a furore back in the 1990s. Novelties presented

this year included the “Artistico” from Köhrmann,

“sandwiched" almost to the very millimetre between

two booths, Janßen’s “Crazy Mouse“, Dölle’s “Hot

Shot“, Zinnecker’s “The King“, Schäfer’s “Voodoo

Jumper”, as well as the “Top Jack” Simulator from

Böhm, Hempen’s “Big Bamboo”, and Fackler’s

“Après Ski Party”, which replaced a ghost ride at

short notice. They were joined by Schmitt’s dodgem

track, Fackler’s “Rallye Monte Carlo“, Keller’s chain

ride, Brambach’s “Mäuse Stadt“, Hohmann’s “Rund

um den Tegernsee”, and the “Revolution” from Kinzler-Nickel.

Moreover, younger visitors were able to

enjoy an impressive and varied selection of attractions.

A kiddie ride, kiddie track ride, compressed air

ride, a Samba-Balloon, mini-dodgem track, walkingwaterballs

and a bungee-trampoline captured many

kiddies' hearts. In the end, the organiser looked

back on a successful event, despite the initial

problems with high water.

ESU sets guidelines for the cultural recognition of the

European Volksfests

■ International exchange of experiences in Brussels

■ Implementation of the Europanorm 13814 should be reviewed in court

■ A warm welcome to the new French member association

President Albert Ritter (centre) with the Presidents of the French

Showman Association UDAF Jean Claude Peillex (r) and UDAF

Vice President Eric Ciceron.

Over 30 representatives from seven member states of the

European Showman Union had discussions with international

experts on the 19 th June in Brussels about current

themes of the European showman branch.

The central point was the recognition of the European

Volksfests as an immaterial cultural asset as well as the

standardized implementation of the Europanorm 13814

for ride constructions in the EU member countries.

Jens Geier, member of the European Parliament (right with President

Albert Ritter), supporting the interests of the showmen.

In the beginning, Dr. Rob Belemans,

Director of the Flemish

Institute for Immaterial Cultural

Assets and longstanding UN-

ESCO-specialist, together with

Marc Jacobs, spoke about the

process and necessary steps to

be taken for the application for

the admission of the traditional

European Volksfests as immaterial

cultural asset into the World

Heritage listing. ESU-members

must initially make an application

to the National Ministry

of Culture in their own country.

The ESU will therefore prepare

an example with recommendations,

which will be available to

the national Associations.

During the second part of the

discussions held at the cultural

centre FARO, detailed information

was given about the implementation

of the Europanorm

13814 initiated already

ten years ago for ride constructions

in EU member countries.

The ESU demands a European

wide uniform implementation

and criticized the mode of Germany

that doesn't guarantee

any special protection for owners

of older attractions, who as

a result would be disadvantaged.

The ESU representatives agreed

unanimously to take legal

action against this solo effort on

the part of Germany in the European

court of law.

Further themes discussed in

Brussels were the traffic problems

particularly of Irish showman

colleagues, the battle to

safeguard the traditional fair

Sinksenfoor in Antwerp, the development

of educational opportunities

for showman children

in Europe, as well as the current

situation regarding tax

Guild, Mr Alex James Colquhoun, by Albert


Following a busy day, the participants were

more than satisfied with the results of the

trade discussions.

President Albert Ritter: "There are still

countless challenges standing before us.

And so the work of a strong professional

association is most important. The ESU as

umbrella organisation is the only effective

weapon and spearhead to fend off disasters

for the European showmen." The

Scottish President Alex James Colquhoun

declared: "The showmen in Europe all have

similar problems. If we work together,

these problems will be easier to solve."

The grand opening of a completely

new erected theme park

is still an unusual sensation

within the satiated European

amusement park branch. And

this year, all eyes turned

towards the metropole of Istanbul

where the first large and

modern theme park has been

opened in Turkey.

Turkey’s Prime Minister

Erdogan opened the Vialand /

Operations Manager Cem Tuna


The fact that it’s one of the largest construction

projects that the Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan

has been attempting to manifest during his already

10 year term of office is irrelevant to mention. However,

although the Vialand project was generally

approved of by the population, other large and intended

mega-projects of his – such as for example

the intended construction of the world’s largest

mosque (and with that causing the possible

UNESCO World Cultural Heritage title revocation)

or the development of Taksim Park (destroying one

of the few green areas in the metropolis) – have

caused more than discontent for the citizens of


Nevertheless the Vialand project stands for the

successful conversion of an industrial wasteland,

which is located in the centre of the Istanbul city

district of Eyüp, around eight kilometres from the

historic district. The park came into being as a joint

venture of the Via Grup (Bayrakter Insaat) and the

Gürsoy Grup, the two Turkish construction and


investment companies, which are not unknown in

the domestic shopping mall and real estate

sectors. The main economic ingredient of the 60

hectare sized grounds is the 35 hectare shopping

mall of the same name, whilst the actual net

footage of the theme park is at the moment 11

hectares, which in future can be extended to 20


Due to the unusual property on the rise of an earlier

quarry, the park has a very interesting and almost

unique overal master plan, as it is accessible to

visitors top-down. A grandiose view of a part of

Istanbul and the imminent park area can be seen

from almost every vantage point. Although the

surprise effect of the yet undiscovered is

reduced, the view of the park and the surrounding

area and the anticipation of the

attractions is great. The thematic challenge of

the attractive design of all buildings and

attractions being seen not only from the

facades but also from above has almost been

perfectly resolved. The park design and master

plan was the responsibility of the ANM

Group International. The complete architecture

was by the Dome Partners architectural group.

And parts of the park (the kiddie land and the

spillwater) were themed by Spanish TAA


Originally the opening up of the park was

planned to be bottom-up, and the main

entrance was to be between a generous area

that is currently under the “Vialand Express”

station and the imposing waterfall (similar to

Canada’s Wonderland). The area of the current

outside parking section should have been

included which would have resulted in the park

being twice as large as it is now, right from the

beginning. However the trick of having the

entrance above was genial – particularly viewing it

from an economical aspect: all theme park visitors

have to pass a part of the shopping mall in order

to arrive at the entrance.

Vialand Tema Park is not only the only theme park

in Turkey, but also the only one worldwide that

contains Turkish themes – a fact that is rather

astonishing as due to Turkish history, there’s room

for many characteristic themes (Europa-Park is the

only one that has or would think about a Turkish

An important economical

component of the Vialand area

is the shopping mall in the

The Family Coaster could

go into operation in the middle

of July

Diligent work continues as

before at Vialand Park

Opening Without Main Attractions

The start of construction of the Vialand project took

place in September 2011, and the completion date

was announced to be the 23 rd April 2013, but with

a delay of only one month, the celebration of the

opening could take place: On the 29 th of May the

Vialand Tema Park was opened on the day of the

conquest of Constantinople by the Ottomans in the

year 1453, by the Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan

– unfortunately however without the three largest

attractions. One of them is the family coaster

“Maceraperest” (“The Adventurer”) from Intamin,

which could go into operation on 13 th of July. The

attraction has a length of 600 metres, and a height

of 22 metres. The openly visible track course can

only be described as extremely innovative for a

family coaster, containing characteristics that are

in actual fact more typical for the so-called “Mega-

Lite Coaster” one of which as example is the

“Goliath” at Walibi Holland: the drop converts into

a curve near to the ground, and is followed by

among others two intensive parallel turns. Another

large attraction that will apparently be completed

by August is the 4,000 square metres sized indoor

water ride “Fatih’in Rüyasi” (“Fatih’s Dream”) from

Intamin, which tells the story of Sultan Mehmet

Fatih, the conqueror of Istanbul (1432 – 1481) with

116 figures and animatronics from Heimotion,

whilst the water course also contains a small drop.

Sadly the main attraction of Vialand, the 660 metres

long LIM-coaster “Nefeskesen” (“Breath Taker”)


from Intamin will have to wait. In actual fact this 100

kilometre per hour coaster should have gone into

operation at the end of April, but since the placing

of the initial order the location of the coaster was

suddenly changed, which made new design drawings

and calculations necessary, and there’s also

the fact that the supports were definitely to be

made in Turkey. The result: The tracks, despite the

new location were delivered punctually by Intamin,

however the supports were still not finished (after

a good number of improvements had to be made

and the supports were still not satisfactory, they

were finally ordered from Intamin at the end of

April). The current opening date has been

announced as October. Definite is the fact that

once the Launch Coaster has been erected, the

complete picture of the park will be decisively

influenced, as the 45 metres high Top Hat element

will tower over the high cliff of the earlier quarry,

and will present 72 metres height to the ground.

Vertical Park Experience

However, even without these three large attractions

Vialand Park still looks complete. The exposed

location high over the roofs of Istanbul is particularly

unusual, and is most probably only surpassed

by the Tibidabo theme park in Barcelona. The park

entrance is located on the highest geographic

point where the “Vialand Satosu” is situated, an

architectural symbiosis of the Disneyland castles

and Istanbul’s Topkapi-Palace, where the four

One of the main attractions

is without a doubt the “Starshape”,

simply and affectionately

known here as “360”

great popularity in Turkey


parking levels connect up. Located here are the

two storey carousel from SBF/Visa, the 160 metres

long indoor water ride “Hayal Makinesi” (“Dream

Machine”) from Intamin and Heimotion, a modern

and extensive version of the Disneyland “It’s a

Small World” with Asiatic and European countries,

and the extremely generous kiddie area “Oyuh

Dünyasi” (“Play World”), with a consistent soft floor

– a step that could be followed by all other parks.

There are nine ride constructions for children here

with a minimum size of 90 centimetres, among

them also the “Wacky Worm” kiddie coaster, which

are however presented at all of the many small

Lunaparks in Istanbul.

The strongly slanting street “Bir Zamanlar Istanbul”

(“Once Upon a Time Istanbul”) leads down to the

second level by the name of “Efsaneler Dünyasi”

(“History World”), which contains a generous area

with restoration possibilities, the Wave Swinger

“Saray Salincagi” (“Palace Swinger”) from Zierer,

the entrance to the still not completed indoor water

attraction “Fatih’in Rüyasi” behind an Ottoman

fortification themed facade, and the 50 metres high

Freefall Tower “Adalet Kulesi” (“Tower of Justice”)

from Fabbri. The last mentioned is really something:

only the tip of the tower shows out of the

building, and not only reveals a surprising and

breathtaking view of the park and Istanbul to passengers,

but the following freefall can only be

described as surprisingly intensive. The previewshow

from Heimotion and the building are also

decidedly successful – modelled on the Maiden’s

Tower (on the Asian site of Istanbul) its firmament

design is rich in traditional detail.

Serpentine steps lead visitors down to the main

level called “Macera Dünyasi” (“Adventure World”).

Most of the attractions can be found here: the 480

metre long Spillwater attraction “Viking” from

Intamin with two drops of a 10 and 14 metre height

respectively (the first being substantially wetter than

the second), the family coaster “Maceraperest” from

Intamin, the water attraction “Jet Ski” from Zierer,


and the 60-seat 4D-cinema “Hayal Perdesi” (“The

Dream Curtain”) from simworks (two separate

entrances give the impression that there are really

two attractions, however only two constantly changing

films from nWave are shown in the show room).

A large part of this level is comprised of an independent

African theme land, which doesn’t quite fit

into the stereotypical picture of Turkey, and unfortunately,

being the only area in Vialand, has only dusty

gravel paths. The attractions here on the other hand

are all first class: the 13 metre high, 35-seat and

beautifully theme “King Kong” from Huss Rides, the

27 metre high “360” Starshape from Zierer offering

wild inversions, and the 425 metre long and

refreshing “Cilgin Nehir” (“Crazy River”) Rapid Ride

from Intamin.

A slightly sloping path to the lowest and still nameless

level (on the same height level as the outside

parking area), is equipped with two indoor attractions

on the edge of the path: the “Safari Tüneli” is

an interactive Darkride from ETF, Alterface, and

P&P Projects on which riding guests are able to

shoot at various targets. And the “Zindan” (“Dungeon”)

is a not particularly kiddie friendly Ghost

Ride from ETF and Heimotion, which contains a

track course with a number of creepy stops, short

reverse sections, and wet special effects. Both

Darkrides are equipped with seven respectively

ten trackless “Mystic Mover” cars

from ETF from the Netherlands.

In general the Turks are

very fond of children – which is

reflected in the relatively large

kiddie area “Oyuh Dünyasi”


Room for Further Attractions

Somewhat disappointing is the current conclusion

of the theme park, the originally planned entrance

area. Around 30 metres under the not yet completed

Launch Coaster there’s still enough area for

future attractions and extensions, however the

huge artificial waterfall that is a great eye catcher

even when driving towards Vialand is a dead end.

Steps lead halfway to the top of the cliff, and the

path ends in a small cave at the back of the


There could have been a Darkride or a Walkthrough

placed here, or even caves leading to the

beginning of the park, in order for visitors to be able

to make a complete circuit of the park. As it is there

are only two possibilities for visitors to land at the

entrance-exit again: either they make their arduous

way back on foot, or they can use the “Vialand

Express”, a street train from Delta Trains, back to

the top.

A viewing ride in the form of a Ferris Wheel or an

Observation tower is not needed at Vialand by the

way, as the available typography almost always

offers an interesting view of the park area and

beyond. Vialand could however do with a large

show or street entertainment.

Although there are 8,000 free parking spaces and

nine free bus line services that connect Vialand

and Istanbul up to 12 times daily, a not yet available

connection with local transport services is

needed urgently, as 30 million visitors are

expected annually. In relation to this it’s interesting

to note that the annual visitor numbers were

increased during the planning time from three to

five million. There are (still) not many modern

shopping malls in Istanbul, and modern theme

parks (still) don’t exist in the whole of Turkey – no

wonder then that Vialand sees itself as a prominent

tourist destination, which even promises a 15

percent increase in the total tourist number of



Merchandise & Islamic Influences

Istanbul’s Summer Resort

In addition to fast-food stands and restaurants

there are also Turkish coffee houses in the park

area in original ambience. And even the shops

have unusually good interior design in oriental

style for a theme park. Nevertheless there are

hardly any Vialand memorabilia that can be purchased

(and there aren’t any on-ride-photos either),

but only trinkets and travel souvenirs, in particular

for Istanbul tourists. This reflects against the

expected visitor numbers, as in addition to the

local visitors, financially strong guests are expected

from the Arabian countries. As it is, Turkey is a

popular holiday destination for Islamic tourists, as

the burka, Carsaf and Chador wearer is more readily

accepted here as in other countries of Europe.

Somewhat disconcerting for non-Muslim visitors is

the summons to prayer five times a day, heard from

the countless minarets of the city. And even in front

of Vialand the unmistakable summons continues

as there are two mosques in the immediate

vicinity of the park. And since the imam has

set up audio equipment, music and the

happy cries of visitors are drowned out at

the park. In general the Turkish population

is unperturbed by the call to prayer. On the

one hand the religion allows two hours time

after each summons in order to be able to

turn towards Mecca (there are no prayer

rooms in the park), and on the other hand

those in liberal Istanbul are a lot less

religious than those in the country – something

that the current Prime Minister

Erdogan is well known to want to change,

forcing the adoption of the shariah and the

abolishment of separation of religion and

state (and with that violates not only EUrights,

but also part of the constitution that

the founder of modern Turkey, Mustafa

Kemal Atatürk, had established in 1923).

Vialand is well worth a visit alone

due to its location. Visitors have a

breathtaking view of parts of Istanbul the whole

year through. But a visit is particularly pleasant

during the summer months as the park in the

heights and the shopping mall’s alleys always

offer refreshing breezes.

And at the very latest, after all attractions have

been opened, Vialand will be up to the standard of

other parks in the European branch. Further along,

the 350,000 square metres outdoor shopping mall

(with 150.000 net square metres) makes

additional offers, and in the upcoming year will be

opening a 5-Star hotel with 250 rooms, not to

mention cosmopolitan Istanbul as well. This 17

million resident city is a vibrating world metropolis

and a melting pot of various cultures, and well

worth a visit.

Since End of May Vialand is open daily from 10:00

A day ticket on the weekend costs 79 Turkish Lira

(around 31 Euro), on week days 55 TL (21 Euro)

from Monday to Thursday. Children between 4 and

11 years of age pay 63 TL and 44 TL respectively

(approx. 25 and 17 Euro). The theme park is only

closed from the beginning of January to the middle

of February. The shopping mall directly next door

is open daily from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.

Interview with Cem Tuna

General Manager Mehmet Emeç, who

had worked for Walt Disney World previously,

was involved in Vialand right

from the start. However, shortly after

the opening, he left the company, and

Cem Tuna, who was actually Operations

Manager at Vialand Park, took

over the role of Park Manager.

Mr Tuna, what did you do earlier?

I worked at Dreamworld and White Water

World theme parks in Australia during the past 5

years, last as Events and Park Operations


What were the biggest challenges before

the opening?

The education of the 200 permanent employees

took a lot of time and was important, as up until

now there has been no modern operated theme

park of western standards in Turkey. We are the first

one, so within two months we had them up to the

mark, especially as far as safety matters are concerned.

Naturally my experiences at Dreamworld

and White Water World played a role. As a result

we are well prepared for children who have lost

their parents, and the discreet surveillance of the

public conveniences is also of the highest level.


We have safety codes and the most modern

communication structure.

Are there however differences between

Vialand and Dreamworld?

The biggest difference is park experience:

Dreamworld has 35 years experience in theme

park operation, Vialand has just started with extra

high standards in safety, and we have more

personnel at rides to control guests.

And what are the differences between

Vialand and ORA World, the first, but also much

smaller park project in Istanbul that opened in

May 2012, but closed permanently only a few

months later?

ORA World had major management issue, and

unfortuanetly didn’t have strong support in finances

and from the city government. ORA was a private

investor’s dream but

couldn’t make the finish

line. Vialand is a partnership

with two major

development companies

with the support of the City

Council. Also, one of the

partners owns a large

building company that built

the whole Vialand project.

What is the capacity

of Vialand Park?

When all attractions

are in operation including

shows and the not yet

completed large constructions,

then we will

come to an hourly capacity

of 8,000 guests.

We are already counting up to 10,000 visitors

on the weekends. Istanbul has 17 million residents,

and we are of the opinion that alone in this metropolis

there are six million potential visitors. Added

to that, nine million tourists visit annually, many of

them from the Arabian countries. For this reason we

believe initially we can target four million visitors

annually. Now and again we do invite schools, to

fulfil our important social responsibilities.

Also because the Turkish government is

also involved in the Vialand project?

For this reason the park can naturally do without as


Up until now, very often whole schools are

invited in the first week of operation to simulate

The complete project is privately financed –

an investment amount by the way of 1.15 million

Turkish Lire (approximate conversion 460 million

Euro). It is the largest private construction project

since the coming into being of the Turkish states,

in other words since 1923! Nevertheless the

grounds are still owned by the city of Istanbul, as

due to the horrendous real estate prices, there’s no

way a project of this size could be realized. The

deal: after 30 years, Vialand, including properties

and holdings will be handed over to the state.

Mr Tuna, thank you for the interview, and we

wish you a lot of success.



The 8-seat cars have

been noticeably designed

rich in detail

Everything that Erlebnispark

Tripsdrill tackles is “... done

with love.” This nice advertising

slogan of the park is known by

almost everybody in the branch

in the meantime. But it really is

so, or is quite similar at the

Swabian theme park, with a proper

portion of local atmosphere.

There has never been just

any sort of attraction “off the

rack” installed at the park, but

completely individual designs

have been realized, which make

the attractions, and with that the

park into something really

special. So it is not by chance

that the very new roller coaster

“Karacho” has turned out to be

something really unusual.

General Manager Helmut

Fischer and his nephew



Gerstlauer Amusement

Rides have realized

50 coasters in only 15

years, and “Karacho” is the

anniversary edition of the

Swabian manufacturer! Our

heartfelt congratulations!


Already shortly after the installation of the last

large coaster five years ago – the wooden

coaster “Mammut” from Cordes Coaster – a survey

showed that visitors wanted a fast looping

coaster. “We were happy to comply” said 27 year

old Benjamin Fischer, who has become a member

of management since the beginning of 2013, and

travels all over the world

together with his father

Ronald and uncle Helmut

to compile ideas for their

own coaster. It was to be a

Launch Coaster, determined

right from start. “And

we wanted something

similar to ‘Oblivion’ at

Alton Towers, where the

train drops into a tunnel.

We’ve got that now, but

much smaller”, smiled

General Manager Helmut

Fischer. And at our park

we drop into the tunnel

with a dive loop; that’s

unique worldwide”,

added nephew Benjamin proudly. “A Heartline-

Roll directly at the start as at Thorpe Park and

Hansa-Park appeared interesting for us during internal

family brainstorming”, explained Helmut

Fischer, “but we didn’t want a vertical lift in the

middle of the track, as in our opinion it would have

hampered the smooth ride sequence”. As a result

the elements of the coaster were decided on step

by step, and the feasibility checked together with

manufacturer Gerstlauer and the Stengel offices.

The end result is called “Karacho”, a coaster with

an incredible layout!


However, how do the world’s most popular ride

figures combined into one construction really ride?

Remarkably well, as despite the variation of the

most different elements on the relatively short 700

metre track course, the interaction can only be

described as perfect. And because the eight-seat

lap bars, the ride fun will not produce any unpleasant

surprises even after quite a number of years

of operation. Additionally, the cars are equipped

with a completely spring mounted chassis, which

also has a positive effect on ride comfort.

We take our places in one of the eight slightly

heightened seats, put on the comfortable lap bars,

and we’re ready to roll. In a leisurely 180° curve

we say goodbye to all those waiting and roll into

darkness. But here there’s no comfortable Darkride

sequence waiting for us, but without any

warning we shoot six metres upwards into a Heartline-Roll,

which is followed by an also unexpected

short but intense drop that lands us on the straight

acceleration section. At a flying start we catapult

at 2,000 horse power in only 1.6 seconds to 100

kilometres per hour. We race in the open where a

“Top Hat” rams us into the skies 30 metres

vertically. Wow what a brilliant overture! In the

lofty heights there’s hardly any time to take a

breath, as we race almost immediately with abundant

airtime vertically towards the ground...only

to win height subsequently once again – this time

in the form of a vertical loop, that is run into and

then exited from at the side. A straight stretch

leads us into an overbanked steep curve leading

again down towards ground level. Following a parallel

turn we travel into the trim brakes. A short

breather and the conclusion begins. Whilst most

looping coasters only offer a helix or at the most a

last simple twist, “Karacho” offers a sheer breathtaking

finale: after a 360° curve we twist through

an Immelmann that begins the wrong way around,

and drop headlong into the misty tunnel, only to

reach the open a split second later with a simple

corkscrew. It’s only then – after these thrilling

moments – that the magnet brakes take a grip and

we roll into the station. Phew, made it...but what an

Fårup Sommerland has an exceptional

position in Denmark:

the park is situated in a well

frequented holiday region, and

is located not far from the large

cities of Aalborg and Arhus.

However it is in a permanent

competitive situation with a park

that although situated 150 kilometres

away, serves almost an

identical target group: Djurs

Sommerland. And so in Jutland

there’s a curious race taking

place with only one sure winner:

the visitor.

Text & Photos: Tim Herre

Managing Director Per

Dam Jensen and a view into the

station area


And as friendly as the relationship between

Fårup-Chief Sören Kragelund and Djurs-Boss

Henrik B. Nielsen may be, when it’s about plans

for the future, there’s naturally absolute silence

and poker faces between the two companies. And

it can happen that one park is in front of the other

as far as ideas are concerned.

And that’s how it happened in the area of water

attractions: in 2011 Djurs presented the Mack

water coaster “Skatteoen” – and according to

rumours, Fårup was also interested in a Spillwater

type of attraction. But one has to get the edge over

its competitor. What’s the solution? Build a water

attraction when the competitor has just built one?

Not Fårup. Denmark’s first Family Suspended

Coaster from Vekoma came into being in Saltum,

which, following Gröna Lund’s “Kvasten”, is only

the second construction of this type in Scandinavia,

and the third in Europe.

“Orkanen” is the name of the new attraction that is

erected on the lake and the bordering grounds,

which in this area of the park, results in a real

family-thrill-concentration with two main attractions.

“Orkanen” and “Falken” share a common

souvenir shop, which, due to necessity, has to be

driven through, however their entrances are far

apart from each other so that on peak days no


unwanted congestion situations occur.

Responsibility for the design of “Orkanen” was in

the personal hands of designer Rasmus Altenborg

and park chief Sören Kragelund. The outside of

the construction was fitted to the theme: debris lies

around everywhere; the hurricane apparently has

caused a lot of damage. Even in the station there

is not one stone left upon the other. Here in particular

the terrific design must be mentioned due to

Sören Kragelund. Authentic tools and workshop

cupboards, which function very practically as

storage space for the bags and backpacks of the

riding guests, were searched for all over Denmark.

And the Würth-calendar with bikini girls can’t be

missing either – after all fishing and boat building

is a male domain.

In the station things really take off as the processing

can’t be any quicker. In parts, the train has a

standing time of only 50 seconds. This is due to

the fact that those at Fårup have waived additional

belts on the from overhead lap bars. The

resulting theoretic capacity of 670 persons per

hour is reached in practice, and is for a park like

Fårup Sommerland adequate. “When the day is

slow we send the train on for a second round”

explained Manager Per Dam Jensen.

Whereas two rounds one after the other on “Orkanen”

could be a little too much for a part of the

family public, as the attraction is a little too intense

for a family Inverter, and can hardly be compared

to both constructions of the same type – Gröna

Lund’s more or less tranquil rounds on “Kvasten”

Almost all of the track

course runs over a water

surface area

or even “Jimmy Neutrons Atomic Flyer” at Movie

Park Germany. The first drop offers lots of airtime

in the back seats, and the rest of the course is

travelled through at a crisp and permanently high

tempo, which is due in particular to the fact that

the ride actually doesn’t win on height again.

Additionally, the course travels near to natural

surroundings and past the theming elements

consistently. “This contributes enormously to the

feeling of freedom that the passengers experience

during the ride” said Per Dam Jensen, showing his

satisfaction of the ride. “One has the feeling of

almost being able to touch the surroundings whilst

flying past.”

Ride on a Watersurface

And the park did a lot to achieve this. The highlight

here is the first drop that leads through a foggy

tunnel under the water surface of the lake. And the

fog effect functions perfectly. The walls of the

tunnel have been painted a matt black so that passengers

really can’t see anything – a great effect that

maybe colleagues from Alton Towers should take a

look at in order to upgrade “Oblivion”. Following the

tunnel, the 10-car train travels into a Horseshoe element,

a curve with heavy overbanking. The g-forces

here shouldn’t be disregarded, but at no time

does one feel unsafe in the strongly angled seats

to the back. The train is then led near to and over

the water surface and absolves a right curve in the

direction of the station, whilst the course elevates

slightly. The next highlight is a helix that clings to the

station building and reaches the maximum acceleration

of 3.8 g here. Passengers are pressed strongly

into their seats, and this is the exact spot where

one must pose the question as to whether the ride

befits a family coaster. Doesn’t matter – the passengers

seem to like it, which results in a high number

of repeat rides.


Following the killer-helix, an ascent follows over

and away from the station – some passengers pull

their legs back fearfully, although there is naturally

enough space. Positive to note is that the element

over the station is not just absolved straight ahead

but that there’s been a little swerve added. The next

helix is already waiting on the other side of the

station building, left and upwards once again – and

this also leads so near to the ground that a small

trench had to be dug under the course. The speed

here is phenomenal. The attraction appears a lot

faster than it actually is. And that’s the way it should

be – not vice versa. The helix is followed by a turn

and a right curve before it travels once again

under the water surface, and then through a destroyed

boat house and over a small dip. Work has

been done here also with fog and the effect functions

similarly as well as in the tunnel after the first

drop. A powerful curve and the train narrowly

misses a stranded fishing boat before it’s back into

the station, where due to the last curve the train

comes to a standstill at an ample tilt.

A Family Coaster Not Only for Families

Summary: Is this still a Family Suspended Coaster

in the classical sense? Actually it’s not. Is “Orkanen”

a powerful coaster on which the whole family

can have a lot of fun? Absolutely! “Orkanen” is

without a doubt the most mature FSC from

Vekoma. The ride characteristics are excellent;

there are no bangs, but lots of speed and diversity

instead. With “Orkanen” both Vekoma and Fårup

Sommerland have proved once again that an FSC

is not obliged to belong in a kiddie area, but can

be staged as a main attraction!



Eleven new water

slides from Polin enrich

the Avonturenpark Hellendoorn

in the Netherlands

If there was something of plenty

during the past months, then it

was one thing: water. A whole lot

of water, but unfortunately in a

form that was very unpleasant

for operators of amusement

facilities – snow, heavy rains,

right up to massive flooding. The

new slide park Aquaventura

however will cause a lot more joy

for both the operators and the

visitors about water – at least if

the weather is on their side!

Text & Photos: Marc Spies


Due to the competence in operation

of water parks, it is no wonder then

that this year’s novelty at Hellendoorn

is a slide park. Its name is

Aquaventura, and all water slides

Since 2011, the Avonturenpark Hellendoorn stem from the Polin Waterpark & Poolsystems firm.

belongs to Looping, a subsidiary of H.I.G. The total number of eleven slides and the small

Capital Europe. The company under director kiddie area are located among other areas on the

Laurent Bruloy and a 30 percent minority holding earlier section of the “Exclaibur Stunt Show”. The

of the earlier owner Compagnie des Alpes, also 2012 erected Huss Enterprise “Tarantula Magica”

operates Parc Bagatelle and the Cobac Park (both also had to make way and is now situated in the

in France), Pleasurewood Hills (in Great Britain), direct vicinity of the Top Spin “Montezuma’s

Isla Magica (in Spain) and a number of water Revenge”, so that enough space could be created

for a water park parks throughout Europe.



Four Tower Constructions on Strip of Land

As the grounds are elongated, four slide towers

had to be erected. Unusual also is that there is no

common pool where the slides end, but each slide

has its own run-off area. This is an advantage of

course in the minor area available, and is also

cheaper with a smaller sized filtration plant.

Unfortunately the water park does not have a

larger pool where visitors can swim or splash

around. On the other hand there are relaxing

zones available with a sandy beach atmosphere,

palms, and deck chairs. Entrance to Aquaventura

only costs an extra six Euro in addition to the

normal theme park ticket.

Children in particular can experience

their first slide platform

at a height of three metres. The

slides between a 17 to 31

metres length from the Polin series

“Pirates Splash” (Compact

Slide), “Funtasy” (Wide Slide)

and “Purple Torpedo” (Freefall)

offer varied slide experiences.

For more adult Aquaventura

visitors there are other start

towers available. The 67 metres

long compact slide “Tornado

Twist” starts from a 7.5 metre

slide tower, and the “Double

Trouble” from one level lower at

five metres.

When all this is not enough then

there’s the next slide tower

supported by five slides. All of

them start at a height of ten

metres, but are of varied construction:

“Twist & Twirl” offers a

curvy 88 metre layout going downhill, the “Dark

Devil” tube slide requires on the other hand a tube

for one or two persons for the one and half time

helix and daylight effects. A completely different

slide experience is offered by the “Green Fall”

freefall slide, which is even a challenge for thrill

seekers: a 36 metre length and a maximum speed

of 41 km/h all speak for themselves. The U-shaped

Boomerang Slide “Wacky Wave” brings passengers

to a speed of 46 km/h travelling downhill

steeply initially before stabilising like a Halfpipe.

At the same time, up to four passengers can have

a race on the 65 metre long “Rainbow Racer”




Illustrative overall view

of the new slide area at


The slide park was opened

by the Hellendoorn Lord Mayor

Anneke Raven and Willian

Kleinjan fromAvonurenpark


The longest slide makes its start from a 14 metre

high slide tower, where its name is also its programme:”Xtreme”

initially offers open slide fun on

a total length of 140 metres before mutating into a

pipe slide together with daylight effects: Polin

places semitransparent rings in the pipes, so that

the lighting effects are not supplied by the usual

electronics .

Unfortunately not all slides were completed by the

official opening at the end of June, however all

attractions are now in operation. Distinctly obvious

was the not completely finished grouting on

individual slide elements that cut down on slide

comfort considerably. This type of work was

scheduled for the fine-tuning phase – the complete

water park area was closed again after the

official opening – temporarily.

Résumé: The idea of combining water and theme

park is not new, and in actual fact always promises

success. However whilst it’s in the Scandinavian

parks of all places that the combination of outdoor

water park and theme park exists more frequently,

it is not widespread in Central Europe – actually

a shame as this practice has advantages for both

the operator and the visitor: more attractions, a

larger visitor capacity in accordance to size, operation

costs can be well planned, and there’s fun

for the whole family simultaneously.

The Hellendoorn slide portfolio also offers a fitting

slide for every visitor, from the small child right up

to the thrill seeker. It remains to be seen however

whether the visitor wants to visit a pure slide park

where there is no normal pool or even a smaller

one for little children, especially having to pay

extra in addition to the regular park entrance price

– there is no separate entrance from outside and

is not one in planning. As the Netherlander are not

known to be water shy, Aquaventura should be a

complete success – so long as the weather plays

Interesting Story

The story is also really original: the Nordic gods

return to the armoury of Walhalla for the great

battle of Ragnarök. Heimdall takes his horn, Odin

his spear, Sutr fetches his flaming sword, and

finally Thor takes his trusty Mj¢lnir, his hammer. But

was that really Thor? No it is the evil Loki who had

disguised himself as Thor!

The task of the ride guests therefore is to bring

“Thors Hammer” uses the gigantic spaciousness

of an artificial cave here, which had previously

been occupied by the simulation show “Viking

Toktet”. This curious show had its fans by all

means, but “it’s time had come” said Björn Harvard

took their place on an enormous Viking ship

had a somewhat “special” charm; however the

ride system with central tracks was chosen, instead

of the popular trackless system from the

same manufacturer. The richly curved ride

travels through creepy forests, over huge

rivers and into icy caves. It becomes warm,

cold, windy and wet. And countless rough journeymen

obviously have something against

Thor getting his hammer back – among them

prominent representatives such as the Midgard

Serpent. And so this is the way the 6-

member crew fights its way through. They experience

a number of unsightly encounters

with Loki and his frightening offspring, until in

an impressive showdown when the chaises remain

standing in front of a 180° screen for about

15 seconds and ride guests experience a

flight sequence, Thor’s hammer is saved, and

the god personally thanks the successful assistants

for a short while.

“Thor’s Hammer” is not a Ghost Ride, but is

creepy and exciting. And it’s certainly nothing for

really small children, so that’s the reason that the

minimum size (tentatively) has been set at 1.2

metres. Additionally the chaises go through really

fast movements now and again during which time

passengers have to hold on. Just how thrilling

“Thors Hammer” really is, could be experienced

one day before opening by Norway’s Minister of

Labour, Anniken Huitfeldt, who was filmed during

the experience and appeared relatively disorientated

to readers of the online edition of a large daily

newspaper. Apparently this type of ride was a new

experience for the 43 year old.

Résumé: “Thors Hammer” presents a new generation

of Darkride. It’s technically challenging

and offers an impressive ride experience despite

a narrow budget frame, which most financial controllers

would cry down as “not possible”. Certainly

5.7 million Euro is no steal, but for many companies

has to be financed. The story is lively and

easy to understand, and makes ride guests accomplices

of the most popular of all gods in Nordic

mythology. Congratulations to Tusenfryd and

Parques Reunidos for deciding on a ride that won’t

break any records, or must appear in the newspapers

particularly. And above all things, for a ride

where the ride experience is paramount – and not

a number on a LED display.

end of May together with a new

theme area: “Antarctica: Emipre

The merger of ride constructions with animals

was until recently one of the most prominent features

of the northern American SeaWorld- and

Busch-Gardens-Parks. Recently the European

Merlin Entertainments Group also found favour with

the idea of bringing this unusual relationship profitably

into its portfolio. Officially the fact that from

both park groups Steve Schwarzman and his

Private Equity Blackstone is one of the larger investors

is irrelevant. The fact is that they are apparently

inspired by the North American park highlights

of this type: for example “Zufari” at Chessington

World of Adventures (KPR 6/2013), “Polar

Xplorer” at Legoland Billund (KPR 7/2012) or also

“Achtung: Pinguine” at the new Ocean Abenteuer

Park (KPR 6/2013).

At the moment the combination of ride attraction

and penguins appears to be highly popular, especially

as SeaWorld Orlando has also opened its

new attraction “Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin”.

At the same time it’s the largest extension in the

park’s history, as it not only contains ride



constructions but also a completely new theme

land together with a huge animal habitat. And it’s

there that the visitors dive into the Antarctic with

temperatures at almost under 0° Celsius, icy winds

and snow covered mountains. In the process, Puck

the little gentoo penguin takes them into his world

and his colony of over 250 species. The participants

conquer the way there in quite large cars from

Oceaneering accommodating up to 8 persons.

Visitors may choose from two different intensity

levels. Both routes are quite similar, the impressions

vary however due to the vehicle movements – when

compared to “Wild Expedition”, visitors observe the

surroundings better when choosing “Mild Expedition”.

In both cases the ride itself is relatively short,

however caters to all the senses – the temperatures

become colder from room to room, the vehicle

moves around freely in the room ( so perceived),

and multimedia scenes provide for much variety.

The coldest attraction in the theme park metropolis

Orlando is the family friendly adventure ride, which

is also an educational expedition tour.
