KALEIDOSCOPE<br />

HOLLYWOOD STAR<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Holger Kramer<br />

The Klinkerfuß firm has recently parted with its<br />

Fähtz ride “Hollywood Star”, which it had<br />

successfully toured for more than 20 years.<br />

The major ride, perfectly preserved to this day, was<br />

built for the Regensburg showman Horn 33 years<br />

ago, before moving into the hands of the Becker<br />

family from Kaiserslautern. It has now been taken<br />

over by the young showman Holger Kramer from<br />

Mainz-Kastel, who had previously parted with his<br />

“Twister”, which he sold to the Wiesbaden showman<br />

Horst Bockermann. With his newly purchased<br />

ride, Holger Kramer opened the new season at the<br />

fair in Idstein, followed by the Frühlingsfest in Wiesbaden.<br />

The classic ride is particularly well received<br />

by the family public. Currently, the backflash<br />

wagon, which also holds the paybox and most of<br />

the ride’s sections, is being newly designed. The<br />

attraction requires two transport vehicles for relocation.<br />

This year, the well-looked after veteran<br />

ride will be presented at, among other venues,<br />

Rheinböllen, Wiesbaden-Schierstein and at the<br />

Spießbratenfest in Idar-Oberstein. The “Hollywood<br />

Star” has ground measurements of 20 x 24 metres,<br />

a maximum height of 14 metres, and electrical<br />

requirements of 60 kW.<br />

OUTBREAK<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Norman Vogt<br />

Already in November last year, French showman<br />

Alexander Kiener from Saargemünd took over<br />

the “Outbreak” from Austrian showman Josef Stessl<br />

from Graz, who had successfully operated and presented<br />

the "Super Star” at many events in Austria for<br />

years.<br />

For France, the “Outbreak”, built by Northern<br />

Amusement Rides in England and introduced to the<br />

tour circuit in 2000, is the first over-the-top ride of this<br />

type. In Austria it was, and remains, the only travelling<br />

ride of its kind. After its appearances in Le Mans<br />

and Saint-Dizier, the ride is to also be tried out in<br />

Evreux, Dourdan and, later in the summer, at the<br />

Lunapark in Barcarés. Further events are currently<br />

still being planned. Moreover, a number of changes<br />

have been made, and more are still to be carried out<br />

to the ride. A laser for example, one of the new features,<br />

provides an additional eye catcher after sundown.<br />

CANCELLATION: GERMAN-AMERICAN VOLKSFEST EVENTS<br />

DÜREN<br />

In Düren, the 375 th anniversary<br />

of the Annakirmes will be celebrated<br />

from 27 th July to 4 th<br />

August. To mark this occasion,<br />

an interesting festival programme<br />

will be offered beginning<br />

already on 24 th May.<br />

From the start of the event until<br />

26 th May, an organ weekend<br />

will be held in the Düren town<br />

centre, with large and small<br />

fairground organs being played<br />

at various locations, getting<br />

locals and guests into the<br />

spirit of the anniversary fair.<br />

From 9 th June to 18 th August,<br />

many photos and exhibits related<br />

to the history of the Annakirmes<br />

will be presented in an<br />

exhibition. A special highlight<br />

of the anniversary will be the<br />

nostalgic fair, held in the Düren<br />

town centre from 28 th June to 7 th<br />

July. The historic festival procession<br />

on 28 th July may well<br />

be another highlight of the programme.<br />

A detailed preview of<br />

the Düren anniversary fair<br />

event will follow in the Kirmes<br />

No German-American Volksfest events in Grafenwöhr,<br />

in Hohenfels or in Ansbach/Katterbach!<br />

The event in Vilseck, which has not taken<br />

place for two years, is not to be revived again.<br />

No cancellatio, howeverin Berlin – where the<br />

German-American Volksfest will be held as<br />

planned.<br />

With deep regret, the Commander of the US Army<br />

Garrison Grafenwöhr announced in late April that<br />

the 56 th German-American Volksfest event in the<br />

military training area, is not to take place. This difficult<br />

decision was due to the tense fiscal situation<br />

in the USA. The entire US Department of Defence<br />

has cut expenses mercilessly. Cost-cutting measures<br />

include the cancellation of all entertainment<br />

events in Europe, the Pacific Rim and the USA this<br />

fiscal year. The Commander of the US Army<br />

Garrison Grafenwöhr, Colonel James E. Saenz,<br />

assured that “we will continue to honour our<br />

obligations toward our German partners, and will<br />

work hard to find a new date in the near future for<br />

this traditional event of more than half a century<br />

standing.”<br />

No Festival Grounds, No Money<br />

This was a heavy blow for participating operations,<br />

as there will not be any compensation for<br />

losses in turnover. Organiser Peter Renner has put<br />

all his energy into the continuation of the tradition,<br />

and wants to once again approve all showmen<br />

considered for this year, to next year’s event. “This<br />

is a serious blow,” he noted, summarizing the disappointment<br />

regarding the unexpected decision.<br />

Last year, the three-day event had enticed more<br />

than 100,000 visitors not only from all over the<br />

Upper Palatinate but also from the Nürnberg,<br />

Fürth and Erlangen region. The German-American<br />

Volksfest in Hohenfels in late April and early May<br />

was cancelled as well, leaving the Hohenfels<br />

Mayor, Bernhard Graf, completely flabbergasted<br />

when he heard about the decision. “I am shocked!<br />

For us, it is a catastrophe,” he said, and continued<br />

“It was a unique chance for the ordinary<br />

citizens to strike up and deepen friendships, and<br />

get an insight into the world of the Americans”.<br />

According to Graf one can even link clothing to<br />

just how much the Americans identify with the<br />

Germans and vice versa. “While the GIs were clad<br />

in dirndls and lederhosen, we wore their new cowboy<br />

boots”. Now the organising showman Karl<br />

Übel is fighting for the Hohenfels Volksfest to be<br />

held in 2014. After a long break, the event was to<br />

be revived and match to its former success in the<br />

Ansbach suburb of Katterbach this year; but indeed,<br />

this remains a goal.<br />

In Vilseck in the Upper Palatinate, the event has<br />

not been held for two years; ever since the massing<br />

of troops in Grafenwöhr.<br />

Berlin Celebrates<br />

The strict cost-cutting measures do not affect the<br />

German-American Volksfest in Berlin however,<br />

which will be held as planned for the 53 rd time on<br />

the festival ground near the main railway station<br />

from 26 th July to 18 th<br />

August 2013. “It will be<br />

our last appearance in<br />

the area – the site will be<br />

built on from next year.<br />

Moving the event to the<br />

south of the federal<br />

capital, specifically to<br />

the area of former Tempelhof<br />

airport would be<br />

ideal,” said showman<br />

Thilo-Harry Wollenschläger.<br />

The German-<br />

American Volksfest in<br />

Berlin is very well received<br />

by the populace,<br />

and a strong-turnover<br />

event in the Berlin<br />

metropolis.<br />

DEMONSTRATION IN ROSTOCK<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Kai Morawetz<br />

On 5 th April, some 50 showmen from Germany<br />

and the Netherlands together with the President<br />

of the German Showman Association, Albert<br />

Ritter, protested on the Neuer Markt in Rostock<br />

against plans to build a new theatre in the<br />

Bussebart/ Fischerbastion area, which has<br />

been the strongest turnover section of the<br />

Rostock Christmas Market for many years.<br />

Three sites were under discussion for the planned<br />

theatre, with the Bussebart/Fischerbastion and the<br />

Christinenhafen area being favoured by the city<br />

authorities. The Fischerbastion was already used<br />

as the festival area for, among other events, the<br />

Rostock Pfingstmarkt and circus appearances<br />

during GDR times. For many years, this site has<br />

been an indispensable section of the Rostock<br />

Christmas Market, accommodating the winter fair’s<br />

large ride attractions, which always entice<br />

hundreds of thousands of visitors to the Hanseatic<br />

city during the pre-Christmas period. However, the<br />

rides and coasters at the Fischerbastion are not<br />

only a crowd puller but also a feature unparalleled<br />

on the Christmas Markets in Northern Germany.<br />

Showmen from all over Germany and the Netherlands<br />

with their traditional flags joined their colleagues<br />

in Rostock to loudly protest against the<br />

development plans. Following the demonstration<br />

in front of the city hall, there was a press conference<br />

with Nicole Vermolen (Vice-President of the<br />

European Showman Union) and Albert Ritter, inside<br />

the travelling gastronomic operation from the<br />

Hamberger family. Jörg Vogt (General Manager of<br />

the Großmarkt Rostock GmbH) reported that the<br />

Christmas Fair is one of the most important factors<br />

for the financing of the Rostock Christmas Market.<br />

The loss of these revenues would result in significant<br />

cuts in all sections. Albert Ritter pointed out<br />

that “the theatre costs millions of Euro, while the<br />

showmen bring in millions” and “the largest Christmas<br />

Market in Northern Germany will lose its<br />

character if it is split into two sections, with sales<br />

stalls and ride attractions located far apart.”<br />

According to Marlies Urbigkeit from the Mecklenburg-Western<br />

Pomerania Showman Association,<br />

the showmen’s professional livelihood is put at risk<br />

and the Rostock Christmas Market will shrink<br />

considerably and lose its special flair if the plans<br />

go ahead. “The losses incurred by the showmen at<br />

the Fischerbastion could not be made up for on<br />

remote alternative sites, and would force many of<br />

them to close down their operations,” said Norma<br />

Urbigkeit, Vice-Chairman of the Mecklenburg-<br />

Western Pomerania Showman Association. “Without<br />

the Christmas Market in its current shape, we<br />

could not continue our operations,” showman Igor<br />

Upleger agreed afterwards. In the end, Albert Ritter<br />

concluded, “A theatre would be OK, but not in<br />

a location within this traditional Christmas Market<br />

area.” It cannot be allowed that one cultural asset<br />

is destroyed by another one.<br />

On 8 th April, the members of the Rostock Showman<br />

Association once again emphasized how important<br />

the Fischerbastion site is for them. They arrived<br />

on the Neuer Markt with 20 traction units and<br />

signs proclaiming that although it was only 20 this<br />

time, it could easily be 200 next time!<br />

This question bothered the organiser of the Nürnberg<br />

Frühlingsfest. The contracted wheel from Christina<br />

Jost and her son Torben had vanished into thin air.<br />

There were no clues as to its whereabouts. A couple<br />

of days before the opening on Easter Saturday, it was<br />

known that the wheel had been sold to France and<br />

was no longer available for the metropolis in<br />

Franconia.<br />

There was a lot of frantic telephoning going on – and all<br />

the owners of more than 50-metre-high Ferris Wheels in<br />

Germany announced their interest in stepping in. It was<br />

just bad luck that due to the short term nature of this<br />

'emergency', there was no time for planning. Eventually,<br />

the Oscar Bruch Jnr. firm, stepping in with the “Expo-Star”<br />

Ferris Wheel, came to the rescue of the event, providing<br />

the Nürnberg Dutzendteich fairground with an entirely<br />

ON TOUR IN AMUSEMENT PARK<br />

Text & Photo: Helmut Bresler<br />

Currently two special attractions can be encountered<br />

at Freizeit-Land Geiselwind, located between<br />

Nürnberg and Würzburg. With the “Fahrt zur Hölle”<br />

and the “Wilde Maus”, two new crowd pullers will<br />

entice the public from early May up until the middle<br />

of September.<br />

While Peter Münch has been contracted with one half<br />

of his Double Mouse for the peak season already for<br />

the second time, the “Fahrt zur Hölle” Ghost Ride from<br />

Heinz Jollberg, moved on to the park near the Autobahn<br />

A3 from the Frühjahrsplärrer in Augsburg. Both<br />

showmen want to finish their guest appearance shortly<br />

before the Oktoberfest and participate at the Wiesn.<br />

Both attractions were stormed by the public in the first<br />

few days, and are considered as spectacular novelties<br />

by the public. As there has never been anything like it<br />

before, the Ghost Ride was particularly well received.<br />

new skyline. The new wheel, much higher than the “Royal<br />

Bavarian Wheel” that has been presented in Nürnberg<br />

for more than 20 years, majestically towered over the fairground.<br />

In the early 1990s, the Jost firm began its Nürnberg<br />

appearances with the smaller “Circus Wheel”, which<br />

was succeeded by the Bavarian-style wheel that celebrated<br />

its première at the Interschau in Düsseldorf in<br />

1992, and had been a regular guest in Nürnberg ever<br />

since. There have been intensive discussions among the<br />

showmen about which wheel – and which firm – would<br />

appear at the Volksfest event in autumn. Due to its spontaneously<br />

stepping-in this spring, it will be the Oscar<br />

Bruch Jnr. firm again. “According to current plans, the<br />

Bellevue wheel and the Expo wheel are already under<br />

contract at this point in time – thus the elegant white<br />

'Wheel of Vision' with closed gondolas is free for an appearance<br />

in Nürnberg from 23 rd August to 8 th September<br />

2013,” said management assistant Richard Krolzig. ■<br />

Both attractions fully built up and including decoration<br />

and light elements, have been keenly talked about by<br />

the visitors. The two showmen are pleased with this<br />

engagement, which did not incur any significant stress<br />

during build up and dismantling or excessive transport<br />

costs. Equally pleased were the park owners, who have<br />

attractive crowd pullers and at the same time perfect<br />

promotional media, without having to make multimillion-Euro<br />

investments. With conditions on tour getting<br />

increasingly difficult, arrangements like these may<br />

well be quite common in future. The Freizeit-Land Geiselwind<br />

began as a small bird / pony / fairytale park almost<br />

45 years ago. In 1989, the first four ride attractions<br />

were added, heralding the change from an animal and<br />

bird park to a modern amusement enterprise. Highly<br />

popular with the visitors are, among others, the “Boomerang”<br />

coaster shuffling forwards and backwards,<br />

Blauer Enzian, Enterprise, Break-Dance, Wave-Swinger,<br />

Ferris Wheel, Ranger, Ikarus and an observation<br />

tower. This season, the “Die Wikinger” Swing Boat from<br />

Zierer will take a break for renovation.<br />


PERFECT ILLUSION<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Helmut Bresler<br />

The legendary "half-lady" and "Spidora, the Spider<br />

Girl” are classic fairground illusions. The eye beholds<br />

something that cannot be true – yet even<br />

seemingly within reach. A highly sophisticated<br />

illusion has been conjured up by the video artist<br />

and designer Till Nowak.<br />

For months, his ride video has been fervently discussed<br />

within the showman scene and at many a 'round<br />

table' alike. He has perfectly combined reality and<br />

fiction and seems to have truly created seven<br />

ludicrous ride ideas. It is high time to bring the 31-yearold<br />

artist, who has just become a father, and the showmen<br />

together. Yet he hesitates at this thought,<br />

suspecting fierce resistance from the touring showmen.<br />

However, curiosity wins through – and there is a<br />

'morning pint' at the Hamburg Frühlingsdom on a quiet<br />

weekday – with Rudi Robrahn, Christian Uhse, and<br />

Thomas Meyer – which is continued in Nürnberg a few<br />

days later, with Ewald Schneider joining the<br />

discussion.<br />

Till Nowak brings a lot of electronic equipment along<br />

with CDs, trade magazines and deceptively real-looking<br />

sketches and drafts of his fantastic rides to Hamburg.<br />

He meets curious showmen, who make him very<br />

welcome and give him their initial response to the<br />

video. “It looked absolutely convincing, utterly realistic.<br />

I simply could not believe what I saw! It took some<br />

moments till I was certain – wow, this is just not possible!”<br />

These were the sentiments expressed by all!<br />

There were immediate discussions, and Till Nowak<br />

described his enduring fascination with fairgrounds<br />

since his childhood. He constantly filmed the crazy<br />

rides, yet did not have any spontaneous idea for a story<br />

and finally dropped the material. Eventually, he came<br />

up with the idea of a further development with new ride<br />

movements – and set to work in his studio. With meticulous<br />

accuracy and professional tools he created a<br />

modern classic of the ride industry. He is truly a professional,<br />

and founded his first company at the age of<br />

just 18, establishing an excellent reputation as video<br />

artist on the international scene. He has received<br />

many prizes for his productions in numerous countries,<br />

including Taiwan, Spain, Australia, Italy, and the US<br />

cities of Chicago and New York. He works for large<br />

companies, a number of well-known TV stations, and<br />

media companies also avail themselves of his skills.<br />

Whatever he does – he does it perfectly! However,<br />

what looks easy in a video is often the result of many<br />

days' work. “Two or three minutes of the complete film<br />

is often the work of several weeks,” says Till Nowak.<br />

After two hours, the meeting ends with the showmen’s<br />

admiration for the ingenious masterpiece of a young<br />

artist, and relishing the insight that as 'outsiders', they<br />

have had into a world so alien to their experience. Till<br />

Nowak has promised the showmen faithfully to take up<br />

their invitation of a backstage tour, by this year's<br />

Winterdom at the latest.<br />

LA ACADEMIA<br />

José Luis San Maximo<br />

Text & Photos: Norman Vogt<br />

At the Fira del Ram on the Spanish holiday island<br />

of Majorca, showman José Lius San Maximo from<br />

Seville celebrated the première of his new Walkthrough<br />

construction “La Academia” (the academy),<br />

created and built especially for children.<br />

The children had much fun negotiating the varied and<br />

imaginative course that ran over, among other elements,<br />

two suspension bridges, various climbing<br />

frames, slides, a moving belt or a see-saw. A special<br />

highlight, and probably unparalleled feature, was a<br />

short glass maze that they had to traverse on their<br />

knees. As the inside of the construction is clearly<br />

visible, parents can watch their children negotiating<br />

the obstacles from the outside. The kiddie Walkthrough<br />

construction, which requires only one transport<br />

vehicle, was built by the Spanish Carrocerias Chicharra<br />

firm from Villena near Alicante, within only a<br />

couple of months. Many ideas of the showman were<br />

realized in the construction of the attraction. José Luis<br />

San Maximo has already gained relevant experiences<br />

with his Walkthrough construction “Grand Prix”, which<br />

he has been successfully presenting at the largest and<br />

best known Spanish events for some years. With “La<br />

Academia”, he is now able to present a thrilling<br />

adventure also to children. The compact construction<br />

can be built up within a couple of hours. Its backflash<br />

is collapsible and has been designed to match the<br />

attraction’s theme. Moreover, the façade and the backflash<br />

are decorated with a number of cartoon characters.<br />

After its première in Majorca, the attraction will travel<br />

on to the showman’s home venue, Seville – the largest<br />

and best-known event in Spain. Moreover, this<br />

year’s tour schedule also includes, among other venues,<br />

the events in Malaga and Huelva. For the Spanish<br />

fairgrounds “La Academia” is an unparalleled enrichment,<br />

different from the numerous kiddie rides and<br />

Walking-Waterballs and provides a successful novelty<br />

effect for younger visitors.<br />

FLIP FLY XXL<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Norman Vogt<br />

In Germany, the name “Flip Fly” is inseparably<br />

associated with the KMG Swing from the Munich<br />

Clauß firm. Antonio and Laura Garcia from<br />

Spain have also decided in favour of a looping<br />

ride boasting this name.<br />

However, they did not order their looping swing<br />

from the Dutch manufacturer KMG, but rather the<br />

Italian Technical <strong>Park</strong> firm, which sold its first “Loop<br />

Fighter” to Spain in 2010. The prototype “Inverter”<br />

was not very well accepted by the local public however.<br />

That was one of the main reasons why the<br />

Garcia's opted for the Italian version from Melara.<br />

After the purchase, it was not long before the<br />

Spanish show couple were able to present their<br />

example. As there is an outright excess of swing<br />

attractions at events in most European countries,<br />

they wanted to at least distinguish themselves with<br />

the “Flip Fly XXL”. As a result, the swinging movement<br />

is joined by a looping, providing an additional<br />

surge of adrenaline. Even though the attraction<br />

does not have a backflash, as is the case with most<br />

of the rides touring in Spain, a number of decorative<br />

elements resemble the example touring throughout<br />

Germany, such as the two prominent parachutists<br />

to the left and the right of the supports. Their parachutes<br />

featured on the “Flip Fly XXL” name sign, as<br />

well as the hot-air balloons on the façade, also<br />

feature the name of the attraction. The ride is painted<br />

in red, orange and yellow, and fully equipped<br />

with LEDs that provide a spectacular light show after<br />

dark. “The looping spectacle is very well received<br />

by the Spanish public,” says Antonio Garcia,<br />

who skilfully controls the ride and makes clever announcements<br />

over the microphone. The “Flip Fly<br />

XXL” is the second “Loop Fighter” variation to enrich<br />

the fairgrounds of Spain.<br />

INVERSION 360°<br />

Following the “New Energy 2” (formerly “High<br />

Energy 2”), another Streetfighter of the “Revolution”<br />

type celebrated its première in France last<br />

year. The somersault swing called “Inversion 360°”<br />

and built by Technical <strong>Park</strong> was presented at the<br />

Fete Foraine in Moissac for the first time. The owner,<br />

the French showman Cédric Baptiste from<br />

Clermont-Ferrand, who took over the brand new<br />

attraction in May 2012, enjoyed a very successful<br />

season last year. Apart from its home town appearance<br />

in Clermont-Ferrand, the tour schedule<br />

included, among other venues, the events in<br />

Toulouse and Nancy. The simple but appealing<br />

design of the swing is dominated by the colours<br />

pink, white and blue with a harmonious lighting<br />

system of LEDs and neon lights. This year, the<br />

“Inversion 360°” will be mainly presented at events<br />

in central France. Moreover, there are plans to tour<br />

the attraction throughout the coastal region in the<br />

south of the country.<br />

VOODOO DANCER<br />

A brand-new lifting arm Break Dance was<br />

delivered recently to the British showman<br />

Jonathan Hart. The ride made its debut just<br />

before Easter in Yiewsley near London after a<br />

journey of more than 1,700 km from its factory<br />

in Hungary. The 16-car, four-arm machine,<br />

which occupies a footprint of approximately<br />

15 x 18 metres, packs onto just one load.<br />

Originally its owner planned to buy a Freak Out<br />

style construction from the same manufacturer<br />

but soon realised that, as the one of only two<br />

Break Dance rides currently travelling the UK, he<br />

would find it easier to secure ground at some of<br />

the country's larger fairs. His first high profile<br />

engagement with the attraction was an appearance<br />

at Kirkcaldy Links Market in Scotland at the<br />

end of April.<br />

The ride's name and decor, of course, is “inspired”<br />

by Schaeffer's Voodoo Jumper, but this was<br />

not the first theme considered by Hart, who was<br />

previously going to call it Free Styler. This name<br />

can still be seen in metal-flake on the seats. So<br />

far the only lighting other than spotlights is LEDs<br />

in the cars, but lights will soon be added to the<br />

backflash, along with a new sign and extra<br />

decorative features such as flame effects. Clearly<br />

it will take Hart a while to get fully accustomed<br />

to his new purchase, but if he can convince other<br />

showmen of its potential he is hoping to act as an<br />

agent for the manufacturer, who we can identify<br />

as “Misi at Stumpf & Partner.”<br />

It will be interesting to see if Voodoo Dancer can<br />

capture British hearts as Break Dances have<br />

never really been a massive hit with the nation's<br />

fair-goers. This could be for a number of possible<br />

reasons: because they are too similar to a Waltzer<br />

or Twist, because they have not been operated<br />

with the right razzamatazz, or perhaps<br />

because a “proper” Huss machine has never<br />

toured the country. Yet before one gets too dewyeyed<br />

over the German classic, it's worth noting<br />

that if a showman were to place an order for a new<br />

Huss machine today, it too would be manufactured<br />

in Hungary.<br />

On 22 nd March, the brand new kiddie roller coaster<br />

“Kuddel, der Hai” celebrated its première at the<br />

Hamburger Frühjahrs-Dom. The construction, built by<br />

the Italian manufacturer SBF Visa, is owned by Sascha<br />

Belli from Hamburg. With ground measurements of 29<br />

x 18 metres, “Kuddel” is quite large for a kiddie<br />

coaster. The attraction’s theme design features colourful<br />

motifs from the world of sailors and pirates, and the<br />

train and tracks are both newly repainted in blue.<br />

During the event, figures and further details were added<br />

to the attraction. Following the Dom event, the<br />

coaster made an appearance in Braunschweig, and<br />

currently the attraction is being presented at the Schützenfest<br />

in <strong>Hannover</strong>.<br />

Rocket Tower, Teststrecke, Eclipse, Konga, Roue<br />

Parisienne, Wildwasser and Schnauferl – the very<br />

names of the rides presented at the 484 th<br />

<strong>Hannover</strong> Schützenfest from 28 th June to 7 th July<br />

2013, present the promise of varied entertainment<br />

for the whole family ranging from high-tech thrill<br />

to nostalgic fun.<br />

Some 75 days prior to the highlight in the<br />

<strong>Hannover</strong> calendar of events, Klaus Timaeus,<br />

General Manager of the organising “<strong>Hannover</strong>sches<br />

Schützenfest e.V.” Society, answered questions<br />

from the Kirmes & <strong>Park</strong> Revue.<br />

Mr. Timaeus, what are the highlights to be<br />

presented at this year’s largest Schützenfest in<br />

the world?<br />

true novelties as well as long-term participants will be<br />

presented on the fairground. They will once again<br />

include, among other attractions, the large “Break-<br />

Dance” from Stuttgart, the sensational “Booster<br />

Maxxx”, the large water ride, a “Wilde Maus”, and the<br />

speedy “Eclipse” ride.<br />

And what attractions will families be able to<br />

enjoy?<br />

My personal wish was the approval of a nostalgic<br />

veteran car ride, and I am convinced, the<br />

“Schnauferl” will be very well received by the family<br />

public. As the Schützenfest falls within the school<br />

holidays this year, we issued a “Holiday Pass” providing<br />

children and adolescents with reduced fares on<br />

Euro 5, contains ride vouchers worth Euro10.<br />

And what about the attractions for younger<br />

visitors?<br />

SPECIAL<br />

The people from the surrounding region and our<br />

guests from near and far can look forward to an<br />

appealing mixture of thrills and relaxation. From the<br />

spectacular giant chain ride “Rocket Tower” to the<br />

Ferris Wheel presenting nostalgic charm, the large<br />

double-looping coaster “Teststrecke” and the giant<br />

“Konga” Swing to the veteran car ride “Schnauferl”,<br />

An ample selection of kiddie rides will be available,<br />

once again including the baroque kiddie chain<br />

ride from Worms, and the “Lustige Seefahrt” from Berlin.<br />

Moreover, children will be able enjoy another<br />

novelty, the small “Kuddel der Hai” coaster from Hamburg,<br />

where their parents can also ride with them. In<br />

addition to the holiday pass for pupils, a free Punch<br />

construction, providing the visitors with a jungle adventure. The large<br />

highlights - a total of 13 major and round rides - will once again be<br />

accompanied by everything that gives a fairground a special atmosphere,<br />

such as 4 large beer tents, the “Gay People Tent” of course –<br />

highly popular in <strong>Hannover</strong> – 5 event sections from the <strong>Hannover</strong> pub<br />

scene with a lot of live music, more than 50 snack and beverage outlets,<br />

11 kiddie rides, 3 dodgem tracks, a go-kart track, 8 shooting galleries<br />

and various Continental Pick stands, as well as games and confectionery<br />

booths and sales stalls. All in all, we expect some 240 operations on<br />

the fairground, 25 of which will be first-time guests in <strong>Hannover</strong>.<br />

What would you like to tell us about the festival programme and<br />

“tradition”?<br />

Being the organiser, we always try to forge elegant links between<br />

the traditional Schützenfest and the modern Volksfest event. After the<br />

swearing in of the Bruchmeister at the city hall and the official opening<br />

of the event on the Schützenplatz, in which “Günther der Treckerfahrer”<br />

will once again participate with his Lanz tractor, the next highlight will of<br />

course be the long Schützen procession on the first opening Sunday,<br />

which will also be broadcast by the regional NDR television station. On<br />

29th June, the first opening Saturday, a “Festival der Blasmusik” with up<br />

to eight different brass bands will be held in the round section on the<br />

festival ground once again. A new feature will be the so-called “Vogelschießen”<br />

with many prizes, and on 5th July a long show programme<br />

with Heino and Jürgen Drews will be presented inside the beer tent.<br />

I am convinced this evening will attract visitors in droves to the festival<br />

ground. Moreover, there will once again be events for allotment holders,<br />

craftsmen and handicapped people. On the occasion of the largest<br />

Schützenfest in the world, the Schützen Associations from the Harz Uplands<br />

and from the Luneburg Heath will of course also be our guests.<br />

What is the special appeal of the <strong>Hannover</strong> Schützenfest?<br />

In <strong>Hannover</strong>, there is a special, close-meshed network between<br />

organiser, Schützen and showmen, and it is a lot of fun to organise the<br />

largest Schützenfest event in the world. This year, a life-sized “Ballerkalle”<br />

figure – the Schützenfest mascot of many years standing – will<br />

extensively advertise the event for the first time. The advertising<br />

campaign will begin already in early June, and Ballerkalle will be<br />

present wherever the action is. Naturally, this also includes Ballerkalle’s<br />

Facebook website. One week prior to the Schützenfest, a Bürgerschießen<br />

advertising the pending Schützenfest with plenty of music and<br />

promotions will once again be held in the <strong>Hannover</strong> city centre. The<br />

Schützenplatz in <strong>Hannover</strong> with its beautiful round section surrounded<br />

by greenery is considered to be the most beautiful fairground in<br />

Germany - and rightly so. Ample live music, the new Vogelschießen<br />

event and fantastic first-rate showman attractions will certainly further<br />

liven up this unique event and attract more visitors to the festival ground

I am now in my third year as General Manager<br />

of the “<strong>Hannover</strong>sches Schützenfest e.V.” Society.<br />

Earlier, as manager in the Lord Mayor’s office, I used<br />

included, among others, events relating to the 2006<br />

FIFA World Cup, the Church Congress in <strong>Hannover</strong><br />

with more than 100,000 participants, and the<br />

“Lena-Reception” held after her victory in the<br />

“Eurovision Song Contest”. In the meantime, the<br />

“largest Schützenfest in the world” has grown dear to<br />

my heart, and with the cooperation of the showmen,<br />

the Schützen and Günter Arand, the fairground<br />

director, I would like to bring our event back to the<br />

very top of the German Volksfest events. ■<br />

ulliver must have experienced something<br />

similar once, when he woke up one morning on<br />

a foreign beach in the legendary kingdom of Lilliput.<br />

When we flew over the 'tent camp from the toy box'<br />

on the Schützenplatz on board a Cessna light plane<br />

on a Saturday morning, we ourselves felt like<br />

Gulliver. From high up in the skies, we saw a colourful<br />

army of ants proceeding through the <strong>Hannover</strong><br />

city centre. Of course, we could not hear the hustle<br />

and bustle as the drone of our small plane spoilt the<br />

acoustic experience of the procession and the <strong>Hannover</strong><br />

Schützenfest. The lively filigree of the<br />

Schützenplatz, the star of beer tents surrounding the<br />

roundabout of poplars, the cobweb of coasters, the<br />

roulette of rides and the glistening circle of the Ferris<br />

Wheel captivated us even without the accompaniment<br />

of fairground music.”<br />

This article in the <strong>Hannover</strong>schen Presse from 9 th July<br />

1969 gives a perfect description of the special<br />

appeal and delightful flair of the “largest Schützenfest<br />

in the world” on the Schützenplatz in the state<br />

capital of <strong>Hannover</strong> – and 44 years later, with the<br />

484 th <strong>Hannover</strong> Volksfest being celebrated this year<br />

– the Schützenfest and the Schützenplatz have lost<br />

none of this great atmosphere.<br />

In former times, the Schützen associations were<br />

mainly meant to protect the town from assaults by<br />

hostile rulers and sovereigns, who wanted to restrict<br />

the town’s rights. To this end, <strong>Hannover</strong> was split into<br />

four military districts, which is reflected in the four<br />

Schützen groups with their four Bruchmeister (representatives<br />

of the city) participating in the Schützen<br />

procession still today. Only in the late 18 th<br />

century, a Volksfest with Vogelschießen, dancing,<br />

beer tents, jugglers, rides and nostalgic wheels<br />

developed in parallel to the annual Schützen competitions.<br />

The annual festival became increasingly<br />

important and was held on a parade ground located<br />

in the south of the city, which later on developed into<br />

the some 10-hectare Schützenplatz with the roundabout<br />

of poplars at its centre.<br />

The Turn of the Century, Pre and Post<br />

World War 2<br />

Around the turn of the century the Schützenplatz was<br />

dominated by horse carousels, nostalgic wheels,<br />

Crinolines, swing boats, and chair-o-planes. Thanks to<br />

the “Karussellkönig”, or Carousel King, Hugo Haase,<br />

who had founded an additional regional office in <strong>Hannover</strong><br />

in 1909 and had an impressive villa built in the<br />

east of the town, sensational large ride attractions<br />

came to also be presented at the Schützenfest. These<br />

included the carousel palace with the tiered carousel<br />

from 1902, the neo-baroque Switchback, the “electric<br />

Switchback”, the “Zeppelin-Weltflug” and a number of<br />

his various coasters.<br />

In addition to the figure-of-eight carousel from Haase,<br />

the Sputnik from Willenborg (later Ahrend), the swing<br />

boat from Karl Vorlop and the legendary Toboggan<br />

from Vorlop (Berni’s Bobbahn) caused a furore on the<br />

Schützenplatz in the years after the Second World War.<br />

Economic Miracle, Change and Progress<br />

From the early 1960s, the German Volksfest events<br />

underwent a distinct change; the carousels became<br />

more sophisticated and were also often named after<br />

the latest dance crazes. Moreover, the first space<br />

flights were also reflected in the showman industry.<br />

Steel coasters replaced wooden ones, Ferris Wheels<br />

grew taller, and carousel rides became speedier.<br />

Walter Rick from <strong>Hannover</strong> was a pioneer of the<br />

showman industry, who began with a labyrinth in the<br />

1930s and operated a “Teufelskutsche” and a<br />

“Wilde Maus” in 1935. In 1950, he added a “Bob-<br />

Schleife” from Mach, which was too heavy for the tour<br />

and sold to Brazil in 1952. Apart from the “Wilde<br />

Maus”, Walter Rick then also operated rides that he<br />

had also helped to develop. “Swing-O-Plane”,<br />

“Bossa Nova”, “Liebeskutsche” and “Twister” are still<br />

recalled by older <strong>Hannover</strong> residents to this day. In<br />

1968, the wooden mouse was replaced by a steel<br />

curve, celebrated its première in neighbouring Hildesheim<br />

two weeks prior to the <strong>Hannover</strong> Schützenfest.<br />

Already in late 1970 the successor, the “Jet<br />

Star 2” with a newly developed spiral tower ascent<br />

and a good 700-metre track length was introduced,<br />

and together with Gottlieb Löffelhardt, Rick brought<br />

a still larger coaster, a Jumbo-Jet also called “Jet-<br />

Star 3”, to the German fairgrounds.<br />

In the 1960s and 1970s, almost every new and<br />

sensational attraction in the Federal Republic of<br />

Germany appeared on the <strong>Hannover</strong> Schützenplatz<br />

fairground; Ferris Wheels of different sizes and the<br />

“Motorboot-Regatta”, the coaster “Jet-Star”, “Super-<br />

Acht”, “Blizzard”, “Racing”, “Jumbo-Jet”, “Silber-<br />

and “Der fliegende Holländer”, as well as rides such<br />

as “Tolle Jolle”, “Polyp”, Titan”, “Hula-Hoop”, “Air<br />

Liner”, “Round-Up”, “Allround”, “Swing-Around”,<br />

“Hollywood-Swing”, “Schwabinchen”, “Mondlift”,<br />

Popular Switchback constructions such as “Santa-<br />

Fé-Express”, “Orion”, “Musik-Express”, and “Petersburger<br />

Schlittenfahrt”, as well as the new major ride<br />

creations “UFO”, “Tri-Star”, and “Enterprise” were<br />

veritably besieged by the public.<br />

Sensations – Premières on the Schützenplatz<br />

Repeatedly, large and sensational ride attractions<br />

have celebrated their premières at the <strong>Hannover</strong><br />

Schützenplatz, often receiving even nationwide<br />

media coverage.<br />

In July 1969, the “Zeppelin I.” from Rosenzweig<br />

performed its maiden flight on the Schützenplatz,<br />

with the press reporting about the unique attraction<br />

28 metres high and weighing 135 tons.<br />

In 1970, the “fastest train in the world”, the “Tokaido-<br />

Express” from Tiemann, celebrated its première on<br />

the Schützenplatz; a ride attraction the Volksfest<br />

visitors had never seen before, as it was the prototype<br />

of a track ride built by Mack. Its successor from<br />

Otto Tiemann, the modified “Hitachi-Express 2”,<br />

celebrated its première in <strong>Hannover</strong> as well, in 1972.<br />

A huge ride attraction went into operation in <strong>Hannover</strong><br />

on 2 nd July 1971. After a construction time of<br />

several years, the “Apollo 14” from Anton Beuermann<br />

from Berlin had been transported on 17<br />

railway wagons from Münsterhausen in Swabia to<br />

the city on the Leine River, where visitors gaped at<br />

the moon globe 18 metres in diameter, watching in<br />

awed fascination the flight of the Apollo capsule.<br />

Back then, the <strong>Hannover</strong>sche Allgemeine Zeitung<br />

wrote with a somewhat ironic tone, “When the Apollo<br />

14 journey to the moon begins, the Capri fishermen<br />

cast out their nets over the loudspeakers”. Nonetheless<br />

– just five months earlier, on 5 th February<br />

1971, the genuine “Apollo 14 space capsule” had<br />

landed on the moon.<br />

The next sensational world première at the Schützenfest<br />

was celebrated in 1980, when the more than<br />

60-metre high transportable Ferris Wheel from Steiger<br />

could go into operation only around midnight<br />

after an exciting countdown, as a number of electronic<br />

components were delivered late. The <strong>Hannover</strong><br />

press published reports about the world<br />

première of the 380-ton construction, its TÜV<br />

inspection and the load test with 336 beer barrels in<br />

its 42 gondolas. Moreover, Lord Mayor Schmalstieg<br />

also made a première spin as guest of honour.<br />

Four years later, in July 1984, railway wagons had<br />

again rolled from Münsterhausen to <strong>Hannover</strong>, holding<br />

the “Dreier Looping” from Rudolf Barth, which<br />

was built up for the first time and celebrated its world<br />

première in <strong>Hannover</strong>. Once again, the Volksfest<br />

visitors were enthralled by this new looping attraction<br />

with its unique, speedy drop, and long queues<br />

formed in its station area. Unfortunately, this proved<br />

to be a big disadvantage to the large “Münchner<br />

Bahn”, which had not been dismantled after the 1984<br />

Spring Festival on the Schützenplatz. Due to its sensational<br />

competitor, it was not as well received as expected.<br />

Modern Times – the 1980s<br />

Even though the 1980s are still derided as “the<br />

decade of bad taste” these days, they brought very<br />

many good novelty attractions, and many of them<br />

made one or more appearances on the <strong>Hannover</strong><br />

Schützenplatz. A Bremen manufacturer in particular<br />

produced many great, new ride attractions that proved<br />

highly popular with the public, including the<br />

“Pirat”, “Ranger”, “Rainbow”, “Condor”, “Ikarus”,<br />

“Flipper”, and “Magic”, and these appeared almost<br />

every year. Having evolved from the “Projekt 17”, the<br />

“Break-Dance”, more than 40 examples of which<br />

have been sold in Germany since 1985, proved to<br />

be the absolute top Volksfest hit. Meanwhile, it<br />

numbers among the Volksfest classics and is an outright<br />

cult ride, just as is the dodgem track and the<br />

Musik-Express.<br />

26


In the 1980s, they were joined for the first time by<br />

travelling water rides, multi-level Ghost Rides and<br />

large coasters with and without looping elements.<br />

New Ferris Wheels of different sizes and types were<br />

built, and prototypes, small series of attractions and<br />

one-off constructions repeatedly provided surprises<br />

to the Volksfest scene, such as the large Flying<br />

Carpet “1001 Nacht”, the “Wellenflug”, “Hexentanz”,<br />

“Happy Sailor”, the exotic “Happy Traveller”, the<br />

“Sky-Rider”, “Drachenflug” and the “Galactica”. With<br />

“Cinema 180” and “Omnivision”, cinematography<br />

with a completely 'new look' enticed the visitors into<br />

domed halls, providing them with a compelling new<br />

type of cinema and movie experience. While many<br />

of these attractions have successfully survived to<br />

this day, some of them have, unfortunately, far too<br />

quickly disappeared from the fairgrounds.<br />

Spectacular, Distinctive and Unique<br />

This final chapter focuses on the 1990s and the years<br />

around the turn of the millennium, which saw the<br />

“Wilde Maus” come back to the fairgrounds as a<br />

steel construction, sometimes even as a double-<br />

Mouse, such as presented at <strong>Hannover</strong> by the Kinzler<br />

firm in 1994. The Triple-Looping was replaced by<br />

the “Olympia-Looping”, a five-loop construction and<br />

frequent guest in <strong>Hannover</strong>, just as was the “Alpina-<br />

1988: Flipper, Kinzler –<br />

1983: 1001 Nacht, Vorlop<br />

1998: Star World, Renoldi -<br />

1999: Olympia Looping, Barth –<br />

1995: Evolution, Eberhard –<br />

2005: Eurostar, Bruch


HISTORY<br />

2004: Crinoline, Roie<br />

Bahn” which had evolved from the Himalaya-type<br />

construction. In 2005, the sensational “Euro-Star”<br />

provided <strong>Hannover</strong> visitors with a surge of adrenaline.<br />

While the richly curved “Spinning-Racer” and<br />

the “Magic Mountain” indoor coaster, later on renamed<br />

“Star-World”, were repeatedly built up in <strong>Hannover</strong>,<br />

the “Phantasia”, “Extrem” and the “Horror<br />

Vision” made only a single appearance on the Schützenplatz.<br />

Of course, the ride sector was also represented by<br />

sensational attractions in <strong>Hannover</strong>, with “Evolution”,<br />

“Flying Circus”, “Salto Mortale”, “Airwolf”, “Shot'n<br />

Drop”, “Power Tower” and “Star-Flyer” being new<br />

highlights. In the meantime, the “Crinoline”, also<br />

highly popular in <strong>Hannover</strong>, had unfortunately left<br />

Germany, and a once-only event was presented in<br />

<strong>Hannover</strong> in 2006. This presented the spectacular<br />

sight of people soaring across the <strong>Hannover</strong> Schützenplatz<br />

on the steel cables of the “Mach 1”<br />

construction from the Traber brothers - just as did<br />

that tiny Cessna in 1969.<br />

■<br />

“MEGA”-FAIR IN WUPPERTAL (7 th to 10 th JUNE)<br />

A LOOK FORWARD<br />

Text: Michael Petersen<br />

From 7 th to 10 th June, the 2 nd Wuppertal “Mega”<br />

Fair will take place, last year’s success of<br />

which was a surprise even for eternal optimists.<br />

Considering its size, the name of the<br />

event seems quite exaggerated however.<br />

According to the organiser, the Wuppertal<br />

Showman Association, they stuck to the provocative<br />

name of “Mega” Fair, as they have<br />

again succeeded in putting together an<br />

appealing fairground with outstanding attractions<br />

for the second staging of the new fair in<br />

the 'cable car city'.<br />

However, the unexpected success of last year’s<br />

“Mega” Fair also whetted the appetite for an extension.<br />

Moreover, many visitors expressed their<br />

wish for a Ferris Wheel or a coaster.<br />

Within only a couple of days of the call for bids for<br />

the 2 nd Wuppertal Mega-Kirmes, the organiser received<br />

more than 500 applications, giving rise to<br />

consideration of a sensible extension of the fair.<br />

The topography of the site set limits to this idea<br />

however, as the stadium forecourt is not available<br />

for hire, and the car park is reserved for the guests<br />

of the sports association. There is however another<br />

artificial grass football pitch in the stadium<br />

area that resembles a sports hall floor. After intense<br />

negotiations and assurances from both<br />

sides, a section of this pitch can now be built up<br />

on. Nevertheless, it has to be remembered that<br />

the effective weight restriction is less than 5 tons<br />

per square metre. Even though not suitable for a<br />

Ferris Wheel, a ride attraction, a water ride, or a<br />

coaster can be built up in this area. Thus, a large<br />

steel coaster will once again come to Wuppertal<br />

for the first time after a break of 30 years; namely<br />

the “Spinning Racer” from Bruch. The last coaster<br />

to cause a furore on the Kötterplatz was the<br />

“Doppellooping” in 1983. Of course, the attraction<br />

with rotating gondolas will first feature in the<br />

advertising for the fair.<br />

From the 500 applications received, the organiser<br />

was able to put together a fairground with the<br />

largest number ever of true top attractions, including<br />

six novelties for Wuppertal. On the forecourt<br />

of the “Zoo/Stadium” cable car station, Schneider’s<br />

“Pirates Adventure” will surely cause quite a<br />

furore, which being moved still closer to the cable<br />

car station will make an even more imposing<br />

impression. Langenberg’s “Venezianisches Pferdekarussell”<br />

however will stand in the "open”, thus<br />

presenting its magnificent visual appearance to<br />

its best advantage. Also built up in the stadium<br />

area will be Rolf Fuhrmann’s “Kettenflieger”; this<br />

nostalgic ride has attained cult status in Wuppertal.<br />

Next to it, the “Circus Circus” round ride<br />

(Bruch/Gründler), appearing in Wuppertal for the<br />

first time, will hold the top-end site. Of course, the<br />

selection of attractions not only provides for<br />

family rides, but also for thrill attractions. These<br />

include the giant “Booster Maxxx G4” Propeller<br />

(Hoefnagels/Denis), which will be presented in<br />

Wuppertal for the first time. Another top attraction<br />

contracted will be the “Konga” (Küchenmeister).<br />

Built up close to the cable car, the mega swing<br />

will be a unique advertising medium, showing itself<br />

to its full advantage. In addition to the large<br />

attractions, younger visitors will be able to enjoy<br />

kiddie rides from Kretz and Hartmann, as well as<br />

the “walking waterballs” from Kretz. An ample<br />

choice of games booths, shooting galleries and<br />

sales booths, as well as snack and beverage<br />

stalls leaving nothing to be desired, will round off<br />

the selection of attractions.<br />

Advertising measures for the 2 nd “Mega” Fair have<br />

been stepped up, including some 650 posters<br />

being put up at clearly visible spots throughout<br />

the city, and huge posters being installed at every<br />

cable car station. In addition, full-colour<br />

advertisements will be placed in the newspapers,<br />

and the programme of the Kinopalast will also repeatedly<br />

feature a full-colour advertisement.<br />

Naturally, the event will also be advertised on the<br />

local radio stations and the local television station.<br />

Moreover, 15,000 flyers and thousands of<br />

stickers will be distributed. For the first time, a synchronized<br />

fireworks display will be held in Wuppertal<br />

this year, with rockets and firework bombs<br />

shot into the sky from the north and the south<br />

stand of the stadium at the same time. Accordingly,<br />

visitors will be able to enjoy the pyrotechnic<br />

spectacle from any vantage point.<br />

The Family Day on the Monday, with reduced<br />

prices at all the attractions, will be another highlight<br />

of the event. The cable car, closed on Saturday<br />

and Sunday due to construction work, will be<br />

replaced by buses that will bring the visitors<br />

directly to the fairground, and there will be free<br />

parking facilities available around the site. ■<br />

FRONLEICHNAMS<strong>KIRMES</strong> IN STERKRADE (29 th MAY TO 3 rd JUNE)<br />

A LOOK FORWARD<br />

Text: Michael Petersen<br />

From 29 th May to 3 rd June, the 184 th Corpus<br />

Christi Day Fair will be held in the Oberhausen<br />

district of Sterkrade. The sites along the some<br />

2.5-km circuit course of the traditional street<br />

festival and Volksfest event in the city centre<br />

will once again be occupied by a varied selection<br />

of rides, including Ghost rides, a coaster<br />

and a Ferris Wheel. The atmosphere in the<br />

narrow streets and at the fairgrounds is fantastic,<br />

and attracts more than one million visitors<br />

to the revered and much-loved, first-class event<br />

every year.<br />

For many years, the Corpus Christi Day Fair has<br />

offered a varied and appealing selection of fairground<br />

attractions, and therefore enjoys great<br />

popularity. As a detailed advertising campaign has<br />

enticed an increasing number of visitors to this<br />

traditional Volksfest in the city centre over the past<br />

years, the event is also held in great esteem and is<br />

very popular with the showmen. This year, fairground<br />

director Sina Illmann has carefully chosen<br />

380 showman operations and 30 market merchants<br />

from some 1,300 applications received, for<br />

one of the coveted sites. Due to constant changes,<br />

the street festival and Volksfest event seems to<br />

offer a different overall image every year, replete<br />

with both regular participants and novelties. While<br />

a number of rides retain their traditional sites, serving<br />

somewhat as landmarks, others cannot be<br />

moved to other sites due to their size.<br />

Obvious Changes<br />

This year, there will be a number of modifications,<br />

clearly changing the usual aspect. This year, the<br />

"Bellevue” Ferris Wheel will neither perform its<br />

rounds next to the city hall, nor at in any other<br />

location, as the “Roue Parisienne” Ferris Wheel<br />

from Burghard-Kleuser will make an appearance<br />

in Sterkrade this time. The Ferris Wheel, sporting<br />

both open and closed gondolas, will be built up on<br />

the Hirschhügel, where it will serve as the principal<br />

landmark of the fair. In addition to the Ferris Wheel,<br />

visitors will encounter the “Starlight” dodgem track<br />

(Petter), “Große Geisterbahn” (Schütze), “Raupenbahn”<br />

(Steiger/Buchholz), “Breakdance” (Bruch),<br />

and the “Auf Manitus Spuren” Water Ride (Heitmann/Schneider).<br />

At the city hall, visitors will be<br />

taken high up into the sky by Nülken’s giant “Sky-<br />

Dance” chain ride that will provide a stunning view<br />

this year. Next to the chain ride, Wegener’s “Beach<br />

Jumper” will provide pure ride fun.<br />

As in the past few years, the well-organised and<br />

festive opening of the Corpus Christi Fair will be<br />

held in Albert Ritter’s large 'experience beer<br />

garden' which will retain its usual site. In the front<br />

section of Eugen-zur-Nieden-Ring there will not be<br />

a Funhouse construction, but rather a large snack<br />

booth this time, and near the steps leading to the<br />

Hirschhügel, the “Venezianische Pferdekarussell”<br />

(Langenberg) will make its début, flaunting its<br />

magnificent appearance. Further along the street,<br />

in front of the bunker, the “Shake & Roll” from Schäfer<br />

will perform its rounds this year. In front of the<br />

steeple of St. Clemens Church, the mega Swing<br />

“Konga” from Küchenmeister will celebrate its<br />

début, and the popular classic ride at the Corpus<br />

Christi Day Fair, the “Love-Express” from Michael<br />

Kreft, will occupy its usual site in this area.<br />

Prominently Occupied Neumarkt<br />

This year, visitors will encounter a prominently<br />

occupied Neumarkt, with the “Spinning Racer”<br />

once again being effectively built up in the centre<br />

of the fairground. The coaster will be surrounded<br />

by the “Wellenflieger” (Wendler), “Circus Circus”<br />

(Bruch-Gründler) and the “Schloss Dracula”<br />

(Schütze), as well as the “Salto Mortale” (Gusowski<br />

/ Langenberg). As a result, the Neumarkt will<br />

offer an independent fairground offering ride fun<br />

and a creepy atmosphere for all visitor groups.<br />

In accordance with another change, only one side<br />

of the course will be occupied by attractions in the<br />

direction of the Zilianplatz/Ostrampe; a good<br />

decision, considering the crowded ‘bottleneck’<br />

that developed in this area last year. This year, the<br />

“Alpen-Hotel” (Rasch) and the “Octopussy” (Markmann)<br />

will make their début on this site, while the<br />

large “Diamond” dodgem track (Hartkopf-Osselmann)<br />

will occupy its traditional site in this location.<br />

Finally, Robrahn’s “Frisbee” will cause a something<br />

of a furore in front of the railway station.<br />

Mascot ”Kira”<br />

At long last, a fairground mascot will be offered this<br />

year. “Kira” the raven is sure to capture the hearts<br />

of the younger visitors in particular. The Sterkrade<br />

heraldic emblem was chosen in a special competition.<br />

Among the highlights of the event there will be: Two<br />

happy-hours at the start of the 6-day event,<br />

followed by the official opening ceremony in Ritter’s<br />

beer garden at 5 p.m.; the special event “Hits<br />

für Kids” on Saturday; and the brilliant fireworks<br />

display for the finale of the Corpus Christi Fair on<br />

the Monday.<br />

Halveraner Kirmes<br />

HALVER<br />

31.05.– 03.06.2013<br />

Michael Petersen<br />

Freitag 18.00 Uhr:<br />

Musikalische Eröffnung mit Fassanstich<br />

Montag Familientag & Feuerwerk<br />

Kirmes inmitten der Stadt<br />

Fourteen days after Pentecost (31 st May to 3 rd June), the Halver Kirmes will<br />

attract not only the locals to the town centre in the Sauerland, as many former<br />

Halver residents will also take the opportunity to enjoy themselves with old<br />

acquaintances at the popular fair event. The fair-mile on the Bahnhofsstraße<br />

and Frankfurter Straße, providing a varied entertainment contingent of ride<br />

and Funhouse attractions – including several novelties for Halver – as well<br />

as snack booths and beverage stalls, will leave nothing to be desired.<br />

The traditional fair is organised by the town authorities and supported by many<br />

voluntary helpers, and has always been and always will be celebrated in the town<br />

centre. This is a clear statement and the position of those in charge of the towncentre<br />

fair, which is one of the town’s outstanding promotional media. This statement<br />

is strongly underlined by the marketing survey of the DSB (German Showman<br />

Association). It is a well-known fact in Halver though that a town-centre fair<br />

does also have its perfidies and imponderables, such as limited space and many<br />

obstacles to be overcome. That is why<br />

the town authorities already took farsighted<br />

decisions many years ago,<br />

according to which street signs and<br />

flower tubs can be temporarily removed<br />

without any difficulties. Everything<br />

else impeding the fair is removed in<br />

good time in a pre-calculated, combined<br />

effort. 120 attractions were<br />

chosen from more than 400 applications<br />

received this time, including both<br />

regular participants as well as<br />

appealing attractions new to Halver.<br />

The varied potpourri of rides is<br />

appreciated by locals and guests<br />

alike. All of them look forward to new<br />

rides, coasters and show booths, providing<br />

the fair with a new overall<br />

image every year. As is tradition, the<br />

Halver Fair will be opened with the<br />

obligatory beer tapping ceremony,<br />

accompanied by rustic music, on the<br />

Friday at 6 p.m. The showmen will be<br />

allowed to open their attractions for a<br />

little “warm-up” already in the afternoon.<br />

This year’s supporting programme<br />

will provide three further<br />

highlights; namely the 1-Euro Day at<br />

the beverage outlets on Sunday – a remarkable<br />

event taking place on one of<br />

the peak days; the Family Day also<br />

providing considerably reduced<br />

prices on the last opening day; and for<br />

the finale, a brilliant fireworks display<br />

in the evening. The “Wildwasser-Raftingbahn”<br />

from the Kriek family will be<br />

presented as the main attraction at the<br />

event this year. Moreover, the equally<br />

attractive “Formula 1” Booster from<br />

Havermann-Spelbrink will provide<br />

visitors with a surge of adrenaline.<br />

While visitors will be able to experience<br />

swinging fun on Weber’s “Rocket”,<br />

they will require muscular strength to<br />

make it up into the sky in Prumbaum’s<br />

“Sky-Glider”. With Bonner’s “Breakdance”<br />

and Zinnecker’s “Tornado”,<br />

two further large round rides will be<br />

available, along with the “Drive in”<br />

dodgem track (Schmidt), Musik Express<br />

(Wendler), “Sky Flyer” (Zimmermann),<br />

and the “Pirates” Miami (Menges).<br />

Additionally, the show and fun<br />

sector will be represented by the<br />

“Happy Family” (Heine) and the<br />

“Movie World” (Hortmeier). Of course,<br />

there will also be an ample choice of<br />

kiddie rides for the younger visitors.■<br />

PREMIÈRE<br />

Première in Recklinghausen:<br />

“Cobra” from Angelo<br />

Agtsch<br />

In late summer last year, showman<br />

Angelo Agtsch surprised<br />

the industry with his purchase of<br />

the compact “XenoX” Looping<br />

Coaster, which had successfully<br />

toured throughout Switzerland<br />

under the management of the<br />

showman Andreas Bauer from<br />

Zuchwil. The first venues were<br />

the Volksfest events in Detmold<br />

and Lemgo. After redesigning<br />

the attraction during the winter<br />

months, Angelo Agtsch celebrated<br />

the successful and muchnoticed<br />

première with the redesigned<br />

Looping Coaster, renamed<br />

as “Cobra”, at the Palmkirmes<br />

in Recklinghausen.<br />

Text & Photos: Michael Petersen<br />

Cobra<br />

In autumn 2011, Angelo Agtsch and his partner<br />

Miriam Blume decided to add a ride attraction to<br />

their firm's inventory, with the “Xenox” coaster being<br />

at the top of their wish list. The Looping Coaster had<br />

attracted their attention during an appearance in<br />

Basle at the same time. The construction’s compact<br />

measurements and the exciting ride it offered,<br />

considerably increased their interest in this attraction.<br />

Moreover, the fact that the compact coaster fills a<br />

niche in their tour schedule, and does not further<br />

contribute to the excess supply of swings and<br />

propellers, tipped the scales in its favour. As a result,<br />

Angelo Agtsch contacted the Bauer family expressing<br />

his interest in purchasing the attraction. While the<br />

coaster was bought after brief negotiations as early<br />

as the spring of 2012, it was taken over only after the<br />

Basle Herbstmesse, the traditional end of the season<br />

in Switzerland, as was agreed. In the meantime, they<br />

had thought about a new theme for the ride. With<br />

“Cobra” an appropriate name was easily found, and<br />

the idea for the design came from their circle of<br />

friends. The MP Design firm, which had already been<br />

responsible for designing the adventure construction<br />

“Amazonas”, was contracted to carry out the plans.<br />

Perfect Outfit<br />

To begin with, the coaster was dismantled in Switzerland<br />

and transported to Munich. Next, the Gams firm<br />

repainted the tracks, supports, and the cars. As the<br />

tracks were covered with a special varnish paint<br />

containing luminous pigments, they light up as spotlights<br />

are trained on them in the evenings, providing<br />

the Looping Coaster with a truly extraordinary illumination.<br />

The last decoration elements arrived one day<br />

after the opening of the Palmkirmes and were mounted<br />

immediately. This done, it turned out that the MP<br />

Design firm had realised the design draft true almost<br />

to every last detail. The paybox and entrance area<br />

were elaborately decorated with many signs, the<br />

coaster's logo, wooden beams, paraffin lamps, an oil<br />

barrel and benches. Particularly striking are the large<br />

cobra heads, mounted on top of the paybox and the<br />

tower, as well as at the highest point of the coaster,<br />

and the palm trees with their small palm leaves<br />

38


PREMIÈRE<br />

Large Cobra heads<br />

dominate the new decoration of<br />

the coaster<br />

moving in the wind can hardly be distinguished from<br />

genuine palm trees. The well-considered decoration<br />

leaves nothing to be desired and provides the<br />

coaster with a perfect outfit.<br />

Construction by Werner Stengel<br />

The attraction designed by Werner Stengel was built<br />

by the Interpark firm four years ago with a front length<br />

of 31 metres, a depth of 21 metres and a track height<br />

of 31 metres. Two trains accommodating 10 people<br />

can travel along the tracks at the same time, secured<br />

by three blocks. The trains are equipped with the<br />

latest shoulder restraint system and provide additional<br />

foot rests, thus also allowing for children, although<br />

they are required to be not less than 130 cm in height.<br />

39


PREMIÈRE<br />

Angelo Agtsch, Miriam<br />

Blume, and Pastor Sascha<br />

Ellinghaus at the inauguration<br />

of the coaster<br />

The lift chain runs only once the train has passed the<br />

first sensor.<br />

In the long run, this design saves a lot of power.<br />

Particularly striking is the coaster’s triangular base<br />

plan due to which the construction requires hardly any<br />

more space than a large round ride. The station is<br />

on the coaster, so that the public can watch the entire<br />

drop into the twisted looping as well as the speedy,<br />

twisty ride up to the station. This coaster provides pure<br />

ride fun, not least due to its impressive looping.<br />

AACHEN<br />

Novelty in Aachen: “The<br />

King” from Zinnecker<br />

Text & Photo: Michael Petersen<br />

The “Öcher Bend”, organised by Eurogress<br />

Aachen, enjoys a high rating in popularity among<br />

the Volksfest events in the three-border triangle.<br />

For this year’s edition of the Osterbend, beginning<br />

on 30 th March and ending on 15 th April, 125<br />

showman operations were chosen from the more<br />

than 1,100 applications received.<br />

In addition to family rides, thrill rides offered something<br />

for everybody on the some 40,000-square<br />

metre fairground near the city centre. As the organiser<br />

deliberately refrained from making any<br />

changes, the layout of the area with cross rows was<br />

almost the same as in the years before. However, a<br />

number of showmen would like to have the “old”<br />

circuit course back, which had the advantage that<br />

visitors inevitably had to go past all the attractions<br />

and no showman operation was located off the beaten<br />

track. However, it has to be said that this is not<br />

possible due to stricter rules allowing for rapid<br />

evacuation of the Bend-fairground.<br />

This year, the “Europa-Rad” from Kipp was placed<br />

in the centre of the fairground, clearly visible from<br />

any distance. Kriek’s giant Propeller “Gladiator”, the<br />

novelty at the Bend, towered over the Ferris Wheel<br />

by several metres. Another novelty at the Osterbend<br />

was the new swing “The King” (Zinnecker), built up<br />

at the main entrance. Further highlights included the<br />

“Voodoo-Jumper” from Schäfer and Fackler’s<br />

“Apres Ski Party”. The “Große Geisterbahn” from<br />

Schütze provided the finest creepy fun, and the funhouse<br />

sector was represented by Kutschenbauer’s<br />

“Magic House” and the “Kristallpalast” from Sturm.<br />

With the “Spinning Racer” from Bruch and “Willy der<br />

Wurm” (Roos) there were also two completely different<br />

track rides available. The selection of rides was<br />

rounded off by Schäfer’s “Shake”, the Musik Express<br />

from Milz-v.d.Bosch, Barth’s “Südseewellen”, and<br />

the two indispensable dodgem tracks from Loosen<br />

and Grass. Moreover, there were numerous and<br />

varied kiddie rides for the younger visitors. Positively<br />

worth mentioning were the many seating possibilities<br />

in the gastronomic operations, which enticed<br />

the visitors to stay longer. Additionally, an ample<br />

variety of special events even turned the weekdays<br />

into a special experience. To begin with, two happy<br />

hours were held prior to the official opening of the<br />

Osterbend. Furthermore, the supporting programme<br />

once again included two Students' Days, two<br />

Family Days and a Ladies Day, and Ryanair even<br />

gave away a number of flight tickets in a promotional<br />

campaign. On the last evening, which once again<br />

brought about good financial results for the showmen,<br />

the event was closed by a brilliant fireworks<br />

display. This time, the Aachen Osterbend was not<br />

spared from cold weather, which was inevitably reflected<br />

in turnover.<br />

■<br />

Première in Iserlohn:<br />

“Brasil” (Schürmann)<br />

ISERLOHN<br />

Text & Photo: Michael Petersen<br />

As was the case with all the other Easter fair events,<br />

the Iserlohn Osterkirmes - held in the Seiler Lake<br />

recreation area from 30 th March to 7 th April - suffered<br />

from an unusual 'replay' of winter. However, considering<br />

the snowy and cold weather, most of the<br />

participating showmen were pleasantly surprised<br />

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

During the few sunny and dry hours, visitors came to the<br />

Seiler Lake-fairground and enjoyed themselves at the<br />

traditional Easter Fair, which was well laid out and offered<br />

an ample selection of ride, games, and sales attractions.<br />

Apart from the regular participants, the Iserlohn<br />

event always provides a variety of new ride and funhouse<br />

attractions. As a result, visitors can look forward to a newly<br />

designed Easter fair every year. The fairground, which<br />

was once again covered with gravel at considerable expense<br />

to provide for reasonably dry pathways, was decorated<br />

not only with the skilfully designed entrance<br />

gate, but also by many rows of flags this year. As the city<br />

authorities are currently planning physical alterations to<br />

improve the fairground’s condition in the near future, they<br />

have asked the local showman association to specify<br />

which areas, in their view, need to be paved. The topend<br />

and corner sites were once again appealingly occupied,<br />

with the Ferris Wheel built up in the centre of the<br />

fairground offering visitors a magnificent view, and the<br />

“Brasil” Walkthrough construction presented as a novelty<br />

at Iserlohn. The tireless work of the organizer is increasingly<br />

paying off. Unlike at other events, visitor attendance<br />

at the Easter fair at the Seilersee was still very<br />

reasonable, despite adverse weather conditions. ■<br />

COLOGNE<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Michael Petersen<br />

This year’s Cologne Frühlingsvolksfest on the<br />

Deutz banks of the Rhine (30 th March to 14 th April)<br />

provided a first-class occupancy and a perfectly<br />

laid-out fairground. The event’s skyline, visible<br />

from any distance, attracted some 600,000 visitors<br />

to the banks of the Rhine this year.<br />

The illuminated entrance gate welcomed visitors from<br />

near and far and decoration elements matching the<br />

season of the year, as well as colourful pennants,<br />

provided a cosy atmosphere. This year, the entire<br />

length of the fairground between the two Rhine<br />

bridges was once again occupied by fairground<br />

attractions of every kind, with ride and Funhouse<br />

attractions as well as games and sales booths being<br />

built up one after the other, and the huge Cologne<br />

Cathedral forming a truly monumental setting. That<br />

was quite a sight, and many amateur photographers<br />

immortalized this unique motif from the said Rhine<br />

bridges.<br />

With the “Avenger” inversion (Holzem), a première<br />

could once again be celebrated at the Cologne Frühlingsfest.<br />

The swing was built up on the very best site<br />

in the entrance area, where it left a highly convincing<br />

impression. Another novelty for Cologne was the “Rio<br />

Rapidos” Rafting Ride (Kaiser), which had come hot<br />

from Bavaria. Visible from afar were the “Jupiter”<br />

Ferris Wheel (Barth/Kipp), the giant “Mach 5” Propeller<br />

(de Vries), as well as the “The Tower” from Blume.<br />

The “Geisterstadt” from the Fellerhoff family, providing<br />

a creepy atmosphere in Cologne for the first time, was<br />

very well received by the public. The fun sector was<br />

represented by the “Super Marci World” (Markmann)<br />

and “Freddy´s Company” (Hofmann-Jehn), and the<br />

“Wilde Maus” from Barth providing proper coaster fun<br />

also attracted a large number of visitors.<br />

Other ride attractions presented were the “Love<br />

Express” (Kreft), “Insider” (Schöneseifen), “Krake”<br />

(Markmann), Breakdance (Bonner) and “Wellenflug”<br />

(Blume). The two fireworks displays held on 30 th March<br />

and on 13 th April numbered among the highlights of the<br />

supporting programme. On both Family Days (3 rd and<br />

10 th April) prices were considerably reduced at all<br />

attractions, and 5 th April turned romantic on the richly<br />

decorated Ferris Wheel, when as many as four<br />

couples took a vow to spend their future lives together<br />

in the “engagement gondolas”.<br />

Due to the cold weather, turnover did not meet the expectations<br />

of many a showman. Revenues in Cologne<br />

were further reduced by the music being turned off already<br />

at 9.30 p.m. and the lights going out at 10.00<br />

p.m. The influence of a single resident, who had filed<br />

a suit about the noise level at the fairground, seems to<br />

have been a very strong factor. What are the city<br />

authorities actually afraid of? It is hard to fathom that a<br />

single plaintiff spoils fairground fun for thousands of<br />

visitors and the financial results of the showmen. This<br />

must surely give rise to doubts about our judicial system!<br />

Not far from the fairground, the “Flic Flac” circus<br />

had built up its new big top and put up a large number<br />

of posters in the city at the same time. Moreover, the<br />

media repeatedly published the new programme,<br />

which was a further detriment to the fair event. ■<br />

“Rio Rapidos” was an<br />

attraction in Cologne<br />

ELSTERWERDA<br />

“House of Horror”, chain<br />

ride, and Ferris Wheel at the<br />

Spring and Trade Festival<br />

The Caterpillar Ride from<br />

Nachtigall at Elsterwerda<br />

Text & Photos: Rolf Orschel<br />

This year’s Frühlings und Gewerbefest (Spring<br />

and Trade Festival) held in the small town of<br />

Elsterwerda in the Brandenburg Elbe-Elster<br />

district from 19 th to 21 st April, was dedicated to the<br />

motto “Vereinte Wirtschaft”, or united economy.<br />

Enjoying sunny weather, locals and many guests<br />

from near and far enjoyed the varied choice offered<br />

by tradesmen, as well as the fairground laid out<br />

in the Industrial Estate East, located directly<br />

adjacent to the B169 federal highway.<br />

With two huge supermarkets, a DIY market, a<br />

furniture shop, a fashion centre, a market specialising<br />

in wood craft, a number of car dealerships and other<br />

shops, it is an important crowd puller for the surrounding<br />

region. In 1996, the industrial estate advertising<br />

association tried to establish a spring festival in this<br />

area for the first time. From the quite humble beginnings<br />

by today’s point of view, the event has evolved<br />

into one of the largest Volksfest events in the town’s<br />

calendar of events in the last 17 years. For many years<br />

now, the spring fair has been organised by showman<br />

Tino Krämer, who once again succeeded in choosing<br />

and engaging appealing attractions from the applications<br />

received this year. The showman attractions<br />

have been placed in two rows for some time now in<br />

the rear section of Kochortsweg. At the intersection to<br />

Erlenweg, the “Moulin Rouge” Ferris Wheel from Wolters/Domke,<br />

clearly visible from any distance and from<br />

traffic on the B169, provided visitors with a<br />

magnificent view. Moreover, guests encountered the<br />

Breakdance from Sobczyk, Nachtigall’s Caterpillar<br />

Ride, the Chain Ride from Sperlich, the “Free Fall” from<br />

Nachtigall, the “Tornado” mini coaster (Nachtigall),<br />

and the “House of Horror” Walkthrough construction<br />

(Plaenert & Schieck). A number of kiddie rides and an<br />

ample selection of concession stalls of all kinds rounded<br />

off the entertainment contingent, and a number of<br />

snacks, confectionery, ice cream, and beverage<br />

operations provided visitors with food and drinks. The<br />

individual attractions were well spread out, and often<br />

particularly effectively placed along the course. The<br />

events in the industrial estate began on Friday with an<br />

entertainment programme and a fantastic fireworks<br />

display, before the spring festival was officially opened<br />

at 10 p.m. on Sunday evening. The colourful mixture<br />

of a large bric-a-brac market, an antique and flea<br />

market, a varied offering from local companies,<br />

colourful entertainment programmes and a spring fair,<br />

once again enticed many thousands of visitors<br />

this year.<br />

PRAGUE<br />

The traditional Frühjahrskirmes Matejska Pout in<br />

the Czech capital of Prague, held from 2 nd March to<br />

21 st April, celebrated a notable anniversary. For the<br />

50 th time, the event was held in the large area<br />

behind the historic Vystaviste fair halls. The<br />

festival’s origins date much further back, to the<br />

year 1595 in fact, and thereby the Matejska Pout<br />

numbers among the oldest fair events in Europe.<br />

Basically, the current festival ground offers a large<br />

circuit course, and for years a small fee has to be<br />

paid at the entrance to the area.<br />

Represented at this year’s event were showmen from<br />

the Czech Republic, the Netherlands and Austria, and<br />

even though the Matejska Pout was as attractive as<br />

usual, there were only a couple of novelties in 2013.<br />

For the first time presented in Prague was, among<br />

others, the "Geistervilla" from the Sipkema family. The<br />

Dutch showman-family took over this Ghost ride from<br />

the Zinnecker firm in the autumn of 2012 in addition to<br />

their larger Spuk construction, which they presented<br />

in Prague in 2012. A creepy atmosphere was also<br />

provided by the Walkthrough constructions "Zombies"<br />

and "Temple of Adventure”, from the Austrian Stessl<br />

firm in Prague.<br />

The skyline of this year’s event was once again<br />

shaped by high constructions from the Netherlands. In<br />

addition to Van der Beek’s "Around The World" tower<br />

ride, visitors were able to enjoy the high Inversion from<br />

Ordelman and a Booster Maxx from the De Voer firm<br />

in Prague, along with the Snow Jet, River Rafting and<br />

the Super Mouse, as well as the sound machine that<br />

has been popular for so many years, which hails also<br />

from the Netherlands.<br />

The Czech showmen once again presented their<br />

successful constructions. Yet again built up in the front<br />

area of the fairground were the Funhouse and the<br />

Superbowl, as well as a Miami. Further along the<br />

course visitors encountered, among other attractions,<br />

the Booster, Energy Rush and two Breakdance<br />

constructions, as well as Pirate, Enterprise, two Ghost<br />

Rides, Jungle King, coaster, Double-Ranger, several<br />

dodgem tracks, as well as a permanently installed<br />

Ferris Wheel. While games containers offering the<br />

latest games try to entice the public in the Dutch<br />

section of the fairground, every year the Czech showmen<br />

present classic, mechanical shooting galleries,<br />

still highly popular in 2013. Unfortunately, the event<br />

suffered from freezing temperatures, so the Matejska<br />

Pout did not really gain momentum. As was the case<br />

throughout Europe, the long delay in the onset of<br />

spring substantially affected the course of business.<br />

By the way, in addition to the well-known Matejska<br />

Pout, a smaller event is held in the same area in<br />

autumn; namely the Vaclavska Pout, presenting only a<br />

handful of attractions, all from local showmen. ■


A LOOK BACK<br />

NANCY<br />

Long-running hit in Nancy:<br />

“Move in Top”<br />

Text & Photos: Norman Vogt<br />

At this year’s traditional French “Foire Attractive de<br />

Printemps” event in Nancy, held on the Carnot and<br />

Leopold fairgrounds from 29 th March to 28 th April,<br />

visitors were able to enjoy many novelties.<br />

Among them there were as many as five over-the-top<br />

rides appearing in the large French city for the first<br />

time, which were joined by another three rides with<br />

loopings; namely the regular participants “Shaker<br />

Dance”, “Katapult” and “Top Scan”. With more than<br />

170 attractions, this was excessive, even for this large<br />

event in Nancy. “Less” would have definitely been<br />

“more”.<br />

Further novelties for Nancy included, among other<br />

attractions, Kopp’s “Booster Maxxx”, Coquoz’s “Avenger”,<br />

Pfausser’s “New World”, Baptiste’s “Inversion<br />

360°”, and the “Move it 32”. With the “Mini Chenille”<br />

Switchback, there was even a novelty for young<br />

visitors. Moreover, the “Super Railway”, “Move in Top”,<br />

“Bayern Kurve”, “Breakdance”, “Shakers”, “Tokaido<br />

Express”, a Ferris Wheel, “Tagada”, “Simulator”,<br />

Caterpillar Ride and “Twister” were once again among<br />

the long-standing hits.<br />

After a break of several years, the “Euro Splash” water<br />

ride was presented at the event once again. The<br />

“Haunted” and the “Psycho” provided creepy fun, and<br />

a number of Walkthrough constructions rounded of the<br />

cornucopia of ride attractions. The double storey<br />

“Kheops Labyrinth”, taking visitors to the Kingdom of<br />

the Pharaohs, surprised the public with a redesigned<br />

façade. The almost unmanageable number of games<br />

attractions was just as popular. Designated Family<br />

Days were 10 th and 17 th April, offering reduced prices<br />

at all attractions. Once again, it was possible to welcome<br />

more than 1 million visitors at the “Foire” this year.<br />

The high visitor attendance emphasized the popularity<br />

and excellent reputation that the top-class event<br />

enjoys not only among the showmen. The only<br />

negative occurrence was a fire to which the popular<br />

Brasserie “Au Feu de Bois” fell victim during the night<br />

of the 14 th April.<br />

SAINT DIZIER<br />

Norman Vogt<br />

From 30 th March to 14 th April, the 141 st Foire de<br />

Paques was held in the small town of Saint-Dizier,<br />

in northern France. The event, which is highly<br />

popular throughout the surrounding region,<br />

offered a number of novelty and top attractions.<br />

The fairground is located in the town park “Parc Du<br />

Jard”, only a few metres from the town centre. An<br />

avenue with tall trees and small concession stalls<br />

(the large ride and Funhouse construction were<br />

once again built up behind it) lined the main path<br />

of the idyllic area, where the trees were not yet<br />

green this year, due to the long, cold winter.<br />

It was possible to select and engage a large<br />

number of novelties for the Foire, with the “Infinity”<br />

Propeller being repeatedly heralded as the most<br />

impressive novelty in the local press. Directly<br />

opposite, visitors were able to try out the Smashing<br />

Jump ride “Maxi Jumping” - another novelty. The<br />

selection of debutantes was completed by the<br />

“Discovery”, the “Disco Dance” Track Ride and the<br />

“Outbreak”; the latter a unique ride attraction in<br />

France. Presented among the long-standing hits<br />

were the magnificent “Himalaya” switchback, the<br />

Take Off variation “Shake off”, the “Extreme” Breakdance<br />

built in Italy, the “Karting” go-kart track, and<br />

the “Toboggan”. The Walkthrough sector was also<br />

very well presented by the “Showbiz”, one of the<br />

largest Walkthrough constructions currently travelling<br />

in France, along with the “American Show” and<br />

the “Ypser” labyrinth. Particularly noticeable at the<br />

“Showbiz” were the two “Blues Brothers” figures,<br />

singing and moving to the rhythm at irregular intervals.<br />

The selection of attractions from the fun<br />

sector was rounded off by the “Cinema 5 D”, showing<br />

a number of films. Moreover, a large number of<br />

kiddie rides, such as mini-sodgem, train group,<br />

walking-waterballs, coaster, kiddie ride, quart,<br />

bumper-cars and “Happy Sky”, gladdened the<br />

hearts of the younger visitors. Moreover, visitors<br />

encountered several appealing snack booths<br />

serving local and international specialities spread<br />

across the festival grounds. Games attractions,<br />

confectionery booths and sales stalls rounded off<br />

the cornucopia of fairground attractions. ■<br />

Eye catcher:<br />

the small barn area<br />

At the Aachen Osterbend, Frank Roos presented<br />

his extended gastronomic operation. His showman<br />

colleague, Hansi Grass, had built two different<br />

trailers to be integrated into the beer garden. Both<br />

trailers are unfolded and provide wooden seats, and<br />

are equipped with large roofs so that they can be<br />

used the whole year round. While one of the trailers<br />

has a transparent roof, providing a view to the sky,<br />

the roof of the other is opaque. Both trailers have<br />

been tastefully decorated and equipped with romantic<br />

lights. The beer and experience garden can<br />

be built up with a timbered floor to almost unlimited<br />

dimensions. A special eye-catcher is the small 'barn'<br />

section, boasting many animal figures, which was<br />

particularly fascinating for the younger guests. In<br />

addition to a large bar, the gastro section can also<br />

be equipped with a large swing grill and facilities for<br />

preparing fry-up dishes. The rustic style experience<br />

gastronomic operation is to be equipped with further<br />

decoration elements during the year to make it even<br />

cosier.<br />

can be used at events of all kinds all year round. This<br />

ceived and welcomed by the showmen, in Ham in<br />

France unfortunately there were no groups available<br />

that were large enough to take part.<br />

The participants agreed that continued exchange<br />

and the coordinated action over the national borders<br />

would in the long run improve the educational<br />

possibilities for travelling children and youth in<br />

Europe. The Ett Edu-Project is an important step in<br />

the right direction.<br />

<br />

Participants of the Ett Edu-meeting in front of the Reichstag in Berlin.<br />

Education means future. Those who have a<br />

good education have a better chance in life.<br />

For this reason it's important that the framework<br />

conditions in the area of education continue<br />

to be developed and improved for the<br />

showman profession in Europe. From the 5 th<br />

to 8 th May 2013, members of the European<br />

educational project "Ett Edu" met in Berlin for<br />

a working session.<br />

In Germany the school project BeKoSch (Professional<br />

competence for showmen), has been a success<br />

model for many years. It offers the travelling youth<br />

the possibility to absolve their compulsory education<br />

during the winter months. In France and England<br />

young showmen may well profit from the positive<br />

experience of their young German colleagues.<br />

In 2011 the European Commission furthered "Ett<br />

Edu" project (European Transfer of Travellers Vocational<br />

Education) was founded. The task of the project<br />

is the development of a European concept for<br />

the professional training of travelling youth. Within<br />

these frames there are already concrete offers such<br />

as the German BeKoSch-courses, so constructed<br />

Advice regarding educational work for<br />

young showmen in europe<br />

that they can be used in France and Great Britain as<br />

well. The German ESU-Associations are represented<br />

Following the welcoming speech to participants by<br />

ESU-President Albert Ritter and DSB-Chief Manager<br />

Franck Hakelberg, the project team reported above<br />

the progress of its showman schooling: Each team<br />

took part in a specially adapted class for showmen<br />

in small groups for two weeks in their own country.<br />

In Herford and Gloucester the classes were well re-<br />

The international working session was accompanied<br />

by a richly diverse cultural programme with<br />

a guided city walk, a visit to the Reichstag, and a<br />

attraction or as the finale<br />

of an event. However, hardly<br />

any visitor is aware of the<br />

preparation and effort required<br />

to conjure up such as<br />

a spectacle as, for example, a<br />

20-minute fireworks display<br />

with rockets, motif bombs,<br />

golden cascades and star<br />

bouquets soaring up into the<br />

sky. In October 2012, the<br />

Kirmes & <strong>Park</strong> Revue observed<br />

and documented the<br />

preparations for the opening<br />

fireworks display for the Bremen<br />

Freimarkt, learning<br />

many details on this subject<br />

from the organizer of this display,<br />

the Goslar Schneider<br />

Pyrotechnik firm, which has<br />

in the meanwhile celebrated<br />

its 60 th company anniversary,<br />

and has presented fireworks<br />

displays at the Bremen<br />

Freimarkt for 18 years.<br />

has been assembled and readied, the vehicles<br />

team from the<br />

to prepare the build<br />

up. First, they chose<br />

and marked the sites<br />

for the 15 launch battery<br />

groups, and then<br />

unloaded the launch scaffoldings, and deployed<br />

them across the site. At the same time, a number<br />

of staff members began to assemble and line<br />

up the launch batteries. The next stage is the 'job<br />

for the boss'; that is, filling the launch tubes with<br />

bombs according to the precise plan, and<br />

dropping the bombs into the launch tubes. The<br />

charging of the batteries is followed by another,<br />

quite complex stage; that is, wiring the launch<br />

batteries to the so-called "pre-firing chain”. In<br />

addition to the 15 launch batteries, there were<br />

also three launch blocks, each wired to a firing<br />

box for electrical ignition, as well as a large, separate<br />

launch tube for a so-called grid bomb for<br />

the final effect. This was buried a good one<br />

metre deep into the ground. The build up lasting<br />

a good six hours was finished off with the wiring<br />

up of the different batteries and blocks with the<br />

electrical firing cables, connecting them to a<br />

central firing stand, and covering them with<br />

Authority assured themselves of the proper<br />

installation and compliance with legal and<br />

official safety regulations pertaining to major fireworks<br />

displays, as well as examining the launch<br />

material used. Naturally, the firing site was<br />

guarded by the staff up until the fireworks display<br />

at 9:45 p.m., and they also put up further<br />

barriers in the Bürgerpark. Moreover, the Schneider<br />

firm engages additional security personnel<br />

to supervise the densely wooded area around<br />

the firing site. Finally after some 13 hours of a<br />

gruelling workload, the big moment had arrived:<br />

in very mild temperatures a fireworks display of<br />

some 20 minutes duration was conjured up in the<br />

skies above the Bremen Bürgerweide.<br />

and frenetic cheering. While the fair event on the<br />

Bürgerweide-fairground ran at 'full steam' and<br />

the rides and all the other Freimarkt attractions<br />

were veritably besieged by visitors, it took the<br />

Schneider team another two hours to dismantle<br />

and load the fireworks material, before they<br />

could finally head home, tired but very proud. ■<br />

KIDDIE RIDES<br />

ROGGELIN KINDERTRAUM<br />

Hartmut Roggelin from Bad<br />

Doberan in the Rostock administrative<br />

area, tours a<br />

number of concession stalls<br />

and – quite remarkably a – 62-<br />

year-old kiddie carousel that<br />

he took over from his father<br />

in 2007.<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Kai Morawetz<br />

Hartmut Roggelin<br />

According to the ride book, the 15-part kiddie ride<br />

with a 12-section roof structure was technically<br />

inspected for the first time by the Groß-Berlin magistracy<br />

on 17 th April 1951. First owner was the showman<br />

Egon Moskeit from Berlin, who probably also<br />

built the carousel, as the ride book does not mention<br />

any manufacturer. Way back then, the ride was 5.5<br />

metres in diameter and 3.50 metres high. In 1978,<br />

Fritz Roggelin, Hartmut Roggelin’s father, took over<br />

the kiddie ride and repeatedly rebuilt it throughout the<br />

following years. Around the mid-1990s, both the diameter<br />

and the roofing were extended. After that, the<br />

base and the light grids were newly constructed from<br />

metal, and the track was rebuilt from high-quality<br />

steel just 11 years ago. Shortly after<br />

Hartmut Roggelin had taken over the<br />

ride, the entire base was galvanized,<br />

and two years ago the roofing was renewed<br />

altogether. At the same time<br />

many individual parts and the vehicles<br />

were also newly painted. In addition,<br />

the first warm-tone LEDs were installed<br />

in the centre of the ride. Moreover, the<br />

so far nameless kiddie carousel was<br />

dubbed "Kindertraum”, and shortly after<br />

the interior panelling of a small, oneaxle<br />

paybox wagon – purchased second-hand<br />

– was renewed, and the wagon<br />

freshly painted. The old paybox<br />

was put into storage, and can still be used for<br />

nostalgic events. The mounts of the ride are a colourful<br />

mixture of vehicles from many manufacturers, supplemented<br />

by a number of self-made examples. In<br />

1990, a new tractor and a fire engine were added,<br />

and the old fire engine was redesigned into a vehicle<br />

in the ADAC German Motoring Club livery. In 1992,<br />

Hartmut Roggelin was able to purchase two secondhand<br />

motorbikes from the Lutz firm. As the engines<br />

were missing, fake Simson S 51 engines were installed.<br />

For adults who wish to accompany their children<br />

as they ride the "Ostsee-Bus”, an accompanying<br />

chaise is available for this purpose. Apart from the<br />

rocket, the police car has proven especially popular<br />

with the children. The replaced vehicles, such as the<br />

tram and various cars, were put into storage and are<br />

ready for use at any time. Due to its light-frame construction,<br />

the ride can also be assembled in only one<br />

day, and therefore it can also be encountered at<br />

kindergarten festivals every now and then. Hartmut<br />

Roggelin presents the kiddie ride mainly at Volksfest<br />

events in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, and has<br />

also appeared at nostalgic markets in Schleswig-Holstein<br />

and Hamburg. The "Kindertraum” is 8 metres in<br />

diameter, 4.50 metres high and has 15 arms, and electrical<br />

requirements of 8 kW. To this day, the rotational<br />

speed of the more than 100-year-old slip ring Siemens<br />

motor is reliably controlled by a salt water starter.<br />

An urgently needed and<br />

additional near-miss-element<br />

has been available at Thorpe<br />

In the meanwhile the park’s backwards riding<br />

roller coaster, “X:\No Way Out” from Vekoma has<br />

had a makeover to become a completely normal<br />

indoor coaster, presumably to make the backwards<br />

experience of “The Swarm” unique in the<br />

park.<br />

In May, what was the world’s first B&M inverted<br />

coaster, “Batman The Ride” at Six Flags Great<br />

America, near Chicago, will re-open with the<br />

trains completely turned around so that all riders<br />

can experience the 21 year old coaster in an all<br />

new way. The Batman coaster has a reputation for<br />

being intense so, based on “The Swarm”, riding<br />

it backwards could be a step too far for some.<br />

Unlike “The Swarm”, Batman’s backwards riding<br />

will only last for a limited time, likely to just be the<br />

summer.<br />

In the meanwhile<br />

in Japanese Universal Studios, the Hyper coaster<br />

“Hollywood Dream: The Ride” from B&M has<br />

added the tagline “Backdrop” as since the<br />

beginning of 2013 one of its trains travels backwards.<br />

The 44 metre tall coaster that opened in 2007,<br />

also features a new choice of on board music from<br />

Japanese pop band SMAP. The new ride experience<br />

seems to be much less nauseating, perhaps<br />

due to the lack of inversions, with riders finding<br />

the moments of negative g force particularly<br />

fun when riding backwards.<br />

The plan is for the ride to operate this way until 7 th<br />

July, but its popularity must surely be making the<br />

park management think about extending this<br />

The idea of turning trains around for one or more<br />

years is not new. Particularly in the case of<br />

classic Racing Wooden Coasters, this step to increase<br />

popularity has been common practice for<br />

decades. Whether this<br />

current example will<br />

be followed by other<br />

parks, or whether this<br />

is an experiment by<br />

B&M to see how well<br />

backwards riding is<br />

received by the public<br />

as a pilot for future<br />

concepts, remains to<br />

be seen. But one<br />

thing’s for certain, the<br />

relatively simple idea<br />

has given existing<br />

coasters a new thrill,<br />

and the parks marketing<br />

departments something<br />

new to shout<br />

about for little new<br />

investment. ■<br />

The new main attraction<br />

at “The Magic Valley” is a<br />

Rapid Ride from Hafema<br />

Water Rides GmbH<br />

Many people think about David<br />

Copperfield or Siegfried & Roy<br />

rather than theme parks when<br />

the subject magic comes up.<br />

However at Toverland, situated<br />

near the German-Dutch border<br />

in Sevenum, something magical<br />

has been going on for twelve<br />

years now: the change from an<br />

indoor playground into a recreational<br />

destination that instead of<br />

offering a rabbit has pulled a<br />

mobile surprise out of its hat!<br />

De Magische Vallei<br />

Text:<br />

Marc Spies<br />

Photos: Marc Spies, Toverland<br />

Toverland’s General Manager<br />

Caroline Maessen is without<br />

a doubt proud of the new<br />

area and its new attractions<br />

Since the opening of the GCI wooden coaster<br />

“Troy” in 2007 – which by the way still belongs<br />

among the crème de la crème in Europe, and was<br />

for example honoured by a European Star Award<br />

prize – it became rather still at Toverland as far as<br />

large ride constructions were concerned, however<br />

plans here and there of potential attractions<br />

were never discarded, but rather landed (initially?)<br />

into the drawers of owner Jean Gelissen and<br />

park director Caroline Maessen. Instead and in<br />

the meantime, the entrance area of Toverland was<br />

redesigned, a hall was thoroughly renovated, the<br />

gastronomy extended, and a shop rebuilt. Nevertheless<br />

it was foreseeable that ambitious Toverland<br />

would also invest heavily in the future.<br />

Magic Dwarfs<br />

And so it came about at the end of September<br />

2012 that the Spinning Coaster “d’wervelwind”<br />

from Mack Rides (see KPR 12/2012) was the first<br />

attraction to open on a four hectare extension<br />

area, as the fourth coaster of the park. However<br />

it was first in April 2013 that “The Magic Valley”<br />

opened officially, and only a few weeks later the<br />

“Djengu Rivers”, the second main attraction of the<br />

new outside area, was released to the public.<br />

The basic facts about the new theme land are<br />

impressive: eight new attractions, 2.8 million kilos<br />

of stone, over 60,000 plants, a park own soundtrack,<br />

umpteen waterfalls, and a total investment<br />

62


amount of some 14 million Euro. Even more<br />

impressive is that the theming came from the park<br />

itself, based on the homespun legend of Dwervel,<br />

and recreated for Toverland by artist Peter van<br />

Holsteijn. The Dwervels, a folk of small dwarfs who<br />

have magic powers, have settled in the magic<br />

valley and create a sensation – to the amusement<br />

of visitors and naturally also the operator. The<br />

theme area offers a similar landscaping as already<br />

seen at “Troy” with many rocks, water and<br />

plants.<br />

Water March<br />

More or less hidden but present all the time is the<br />

Rapid River “Djengu River” from Hafema Water<br />

Ride Systems. Due to the clever covering of the<br />

course with natural stones as well as a complete<br />

theming of the station building, the track course<br />

is initially not visible from outside. This causes the<br />

feeling that during at least the very first ride, the<br />

460 metre track appears to be extremely long,<br />

and in some cases is not recommended for those<br />

with sensitive stomachs. The ten round boats<br />

accommodating up to nine passengers go<br />

through enormously fast rotations in some parts,<br />

whilst passing waterfalls and fountains for 240<br />

seconds. The passenger loading is somewhat<br />

more sedate as the boats travel along a slowly<br />

running belt. However “Djengu River” has sufficient<br />

capacity of over 900 passengers per hour,<br />

and offers wet and happy ride fun for the whole<br />

family, without completely soaking the guests.<br />

More New Attractions<br />

The water element is omnipresent all over the<br />

Magic Valley: no less than three of the other<br />

attractions have a connection to water: Metallbau<br />

Emmeln delivered “Tolly Molly”, a particularly<br />

lovingly designed variation of the classic duck<br />

ride, where instead of disdainful ducks there are<br />

mystical water creatures that transport up to 24<br />

passengers.<br />

Visitors can be more active on the other hand on<br />

the “Kid’s Survival” trail, where naturally it’s less<br />

about life and death, but more about keeping the<br />

feet dry on the course. The 12 elements stem from<br />

VelopA Omniplay.<br />

As powerful and wet as it<br />

should be on a real Rapid Ride<br />

The track course and the<br />

lift of the “Djengu River” are<br />

well bedded into the theming<br />

63


This water attraction<br />

comes from Metallbau Emmeln<br />

The designs in the new<br />

theme area are harmonious<br />

For those for whom it’s far too strenuous there is<br />

the new fountain show “Katara, Fountain of<br />

Magic” to enjoy. 136 illuminated water fountains<br />

supported by an orchestral soundtrack present a<br />

successful show with lots of spraying water. If this<br />

is too wet for visitors, the show can also be viewed<br />

from the new restaurant opposite. And if it’s too<br />

dry for some, they in turn can try their luck on the<br />

Splash-Insel (Splash Island): there’s a certain<br />

amount of luck and skill required to arrive in a dry<br />

state. The show was manufactured by the<br />

GHESA Fuentes firm.<br />

Not quite as high as the up to 15 metre fountains<br />

but not rooted in the soil either, is the cable<br />

control tower “Coco Bolo” from Heege, which is<br />

also beautifully designed. A newly hatched bird<br />

moves ceaselessly on the tip of the tower, whilst<br />

visitors are spending energy on the cable. And<br />

those who still have enough power after tower<br />

climbing can live it up on a large climbing castle<br />

from Eibe, or a large trampoline.<br />

Quo vadis?<br />

Toverland has done everything right with its extension<br />

around Magic Valley. Added to the main<br />

target group of families with children, the attractions<br />

“d’wervelwind” and “Djengu River” are suit-<br />

64


able for an even broader public. And this is<br />

exactly the aim of owner Jean Gelissen. “With a<br />

wider range of attractions for the whole family and<br />

top class theming, we are increasing the status of<br />

the park considerably. We are convinced that the<br />

Netherlanders, Belgians and the Germans within<br />

a distance of 100 kilometres will find their way to<br />

us”. Toverland expects in the short term an<br />

increase in visitor numbers of around 20% in<br />

comparison to 2012, which means a growth of<br />

100,000; in the medium term, one million visitors<br />

are expected to respond. It is hoped to win more<br />

visitors from the Nord-Rhine Westphalia area as<br />

well.<br />

The most exciting question still remains<br />

however: what sort of magic will<br />

Toverland pull out of the hat next? One thing that<br />

is certain is that entrance into “De Magische<br />

Valley” is to be made possible also from the theme<br />

A climbing castle from<br />

Eibe and a cable tower from<br />

Heege have also been erected<br />

area “Troja”, which until now was only through the<br />

second hall. In the near future, according to Jean<br />

Gelissen in an interview, there is also to be an<br />

additional large coaster at the park.<br />

Furthermore there are existing and concrete<br />

plans for a theme hotel. What will actually be<br />

realised and what will land in the drawer remains<br />

to be seen – but it’s pretty certain that it won’t be<br />

a rabbit! ■ The theme area “The<br />

Attractiepark Slagharen in the<br />

Netherlands is celebrating its<br />

50th anniversary with four new<br />

attractions. Following the takeover<br />

of the family park by the<br />

Spanish Parques Reunidos last<br />

year, the first rebuilding work<br />

has taken place this season.<br />

Jules Verne Adventure<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Olaf Esser<br />

“Fogg’s Trouble”<br />

unfortunately has no design<br />

at all<br />

The currently new named Slagharen Theme <strong>Park</strong><br />

& Resort had already opened in 1963 as the<br />

Ponypark Slagharen, and it was operated by the<br />

Bemboom family for 49 years. As time went on the<br />

park became larger, and already the 1960s and<br />

1970s saw classic rides of these days come into<br />

being, such as the “Ocean of Darkness” the huge<br />

chain ride “Apollo”, and the “Looping Star Thunder<br />

Loop” – all those and other rides from legendary<br />

Schwarzkopf factory.<br />

On the 1 st May 2013, the area “Jules Verne Adventureland”<br />

was opened, where there are now four<br />

new attractions. Unfortunately old and well preserved<br />

attractions had to make way, for example<br />

the unique Darkride “Ocean of Darkness”, in which<br />

ride guests in globe-shaped gondolas passed fish,<br />

octopi, mermaids, and other ocean inhabitants. Another<br />

ride construction, the old “Enterprise” from<br />

Schwarzkopf on the other hand was retained, and<br />

has been integrated a little into the new area.<br />

66


The new Top Act among the four novelties is without<br />

a doubt the “Expedition Nautilus” from Mack<br />

Rides, a successful combination of a “Splash<br />

Battle” and a Teacup Ride, called by the German<br />

manufacturer just what it is: “Twist ‘n’ Splash”. Both<br />

are very successful attractions that can be found in<br />

many parks all over the world. So it’s no wonder that<br />

the combination of the rides is also enthralling.<br />

Following the entry into one of the new round boats,<br />

54 adventurers take off on a wet and fun round trip.<br />

As is also the case on a Splash Battle or similar ride,<br />

there is also a lot of water spraying here, by rotating<br />

the water cannons. This can also be a wet<br />

experience for the viewers, as the cannons reach a<br />

considerable range. But there are also cannons on<br />

the outside that can spray water. The fun is seen on<br />

the faces of both the younger guests and adults,<br />

and great weather here is naturally an advantage.<br />

In the event of bad weather or for the water-shy<br />

there is a small shop that sells ponchos for an Euro<br />

a piece. Alternatively there is also – as known from<br />

other parks – a huge walk-in dryer.<br />

The second novelty is also a kind of interactive, in<br />

the form of bicycles in the air, with visitors reaching<br />

the highest point by pedalling. This attraction has<br />

also been designed for both children and parents,<br />

supported by the extra adjustable seats, so children<br />

have no problems in reaching the pedals and<br />

participating.<br />

Unfortunately the passenger loading takes somewhat<br />

longer in this case, and the design is a little<br />

sparse as well. “Magic Bikes” is surrounded by a<br />

fence and is located on the edge of the park near<br />

an old building. The Italian manufacturer Zamperla<br />

offers various sizes for this attraction, this particular<br />

version having eight gondolas.<br />

The attraction “Fogg’s Trouble” is also from Zamperla.<br />

This is a “Rockin’ Tug” with a capacity of 24<br />

passengers, where eight adults are also allowed on<br />

board. The location and design here is also lifeless<br />

however. The gondola swings in the form of a boat,<br />

rotating on the track here and there. There is no<br />

water, not even on the decoration, only a few leftovers<br />

from the Darkride “Ocean of Darkness” have<br />

been used as decoration elements. The maritime<br />

boat design is also shown less to its advantage.<br />

The fourth novelty is once again a highlight for the<br />

smaller guests; the “Passepartout Explorer” is partly<br />

roofed over and has a large outer area. Here, the<br />

children initially participate in theory instruction for<br />

their driver’s licence and are then allowed onto the<br />

street, after which they drive past their parents<br />

The driving school stems<br />

from Italian manufacturer<br />

Zamperla<br />

The “Magic Bikes” are<br />

also from Zamperla<br />

The main attraction in the<br />

new theme area “Jules Verne<br />

Adventureland” is a “Twist ‘n’<br />

Splash” from Mack Rides<br />

Those who are too wet<br />

from the water attraction can<br />

become dry again in the walk-in<br />

dryer from Haysteck<br />

proudly in their electric cars on a very nicely<br />

designed course. There are also road signs and<br />

even a set of traffic lights on the course. Maybe<br />

some of the drivers will remember their first driving<br />

lessen in Slagharen in their later years when learning<br />

to drive. The manufacturer of the electric cars<br />

is once again Zamperla.<br />

Although the new “Jules Verne Adventureland”<br />

can’t be recognised as a completely new theme<br />

area, the four novelties are all well integrated into<br />

the park, and the mixture of old traditional and new<br />

rides can be felt. Unfortunately the choice of the<br />

attractions is not all that unusual. In the course of<br />

the restructuring of other European parks and the<br />

ever increasing number of indoor parks, one sees<br />

these family rides very often, and the individuality<br />

is lost in the process.<br />

Slagharen lives for the better part from its many<br />

bungalow and camping guests. As a result there<br />

are many families that spend their leisure time here.<br />

The park is ideal for this, as it offers much variety.<br />

There are not many large ride attractions, and these<br />

few are ageing.<br />

And in actual fact mega-attractions don’t fit into the<br />

concept at all. And the new owner Parques Reunidos<br />

is hardly likely to change the situation, so it<br />

can be safely presumed that this tradition will continue<br />

in the upcoming years.<br />

When in 1996 Europe’s largest<br />

shopping centre, the CentrO,<br />

opened in Oberhausen, a small<br />

park with a number of offers for<br />

children saw the light of day for<br />

the first time. This “park for strollers”<br />

was thought up to serve as<br />

a diversion and recreational area<br />

near the actual shopping centre<br />

and gastronomy line.<br />

Sea Life Abenteuer <strong>Park</strong><br />

The new water attraction<br />

“Pinguine! Abenteuer Antarktis”<br />

comes from abc rides<br />

In those days the park was maintained by the<br />

CentrO.-Betreibergesellschaft, however the company<br />

very soon wanted to concentrate completely<br />

on the business and gastronomy area, and searched<br />

for the relevant new operator for the park. In<br />

2001 showman Oskar Bruch Junior took over the<br />

helm. He entered into a lease agreement and rebuilt<br />

the park into a real amusement park, in that he<br />

installed a number of ride constructions at CentrO<br />

<strong>Park</strong>.<br />

For ten years he attempted to make the park into a<br />

profitable business. All the same very soon it was<br />

obvious that it would be a difficult undertaking to<br />

establish a typical all-day amusement park, next to<br />

a shopping mall, as in principle visitors were not<br />

travelling to the “Neue Mitte Oberhausen” to visit a<br />

middle sized amusement park, but because of a<br />

shopping experience. With that, a complete day<br />

price for an amusement park visit didn’t come into<br />

question – besides that offers for day trips in the<br />

Ruhr district – among them Movie <strong>Park</strong> Germany<br />

were substantially more attractive. Oskar Bruch<br />

terminated the lease at the end of 2010 for all these<br />

reasons.<br />

70


When the Sea Life Centre opened in 2004, it was<br />

exactly the right combination in harmony with<br />

visitors to a shopping mile: the aquarium offered a<br />

relatively entertaining experience, which could be<br />

very well combined with a visit to a shopping mall.<br />

With this Sea Life Centre, the worldwide Merlin<br />

Entertainments Group provided the first destination<br />

in the Ruhr area; four years later a second mainstay<br />

came into being in Duisburg, the world’s first<br />

Legoland Discovery Centre.<br />

Whilst during the last two years there was no<br />

amusement park at CentrO any more, in 2012 the<br />

announcement came that together with Merlin<br />

Entertainments, a new user of the area had been<br />

found. Besides the discussions about the takeover<br />

of the park, talks in relation to the further use of the<br />

remaining ride constructions and attractions were<br />

not successful, so Oskar Bruch Junior dismantled<br />

the ride constructions – with the exception of the<br />

available tractor attraction and the park’s railway<br />

from Metallbau Emmeln – and could partly sell them<br />

to Scandinavia. During the past year the Merlin<br />

Entertainments Group announced the extension of<br />

the shopping mall Sea Life Centre into the Sea Life<br />

Abenteuer <strong>Park</strong>, and to relocate the Lego Discovery<br />

Centre from Duisburg to Oberhausen for around 15<br />

million Euro.<br />

A new building came into being directly on the<br />

earlier entrance to the previous CentrO, which is the<br />

entrance to the Sea Life Abenteuer <strong>Park</strong>, and<br />

simultaneously harbours the Lego Discovery<br />

Centre – and as new indoor attraction there is to be<br />

a “Magic Bike” from Zamperla added this year.<br />

The Sea Life Centre by the way remained on its old<br />

location and with that has no direct connection to<br />

the new park. All the same, the entrance fee to the<br />

Sea Life Centre also includes a visit to neighbouring<br />

parks and there are also kombi-tickets to enable<br />

visitors to enjoy all three attractions. And so a resort<br />

came into being with three different recreational<br />

possibilities, leading to a lot of synergy effects in<br />

marketing and operation.<br />

At the new Adventure <strong>Park</strong> a new and large main<br />

attraction has come into being, combining a ride<br />

with an animal experience. This classic water ride<br />

from abc rides is located directly near the new<br />

entrance area, in order to be an “eye catcher” for<br />

guests at the gastronomy area.<br />

The water attraction is 250<br />

metres long, 14 metres high<br />

and has a capacity of<br />

685 passengers per hour<br />

(with the use of 8 boats with<br />

maximum persons each)<br />

Also constructively interesting:<br />

the water attraction only<br />

requires one main support<br />

Werner Novotny (General<br />

Manager Lego Discovery Centre<br />

Oberhausen) and Jörg Meyer<br />

(<strong>Park</strong> Operations Supervisor<br />

Sea Life Abenteuer <strong>Park</strong>)<br />

Right next door a new home has been erected for<br />

15 Gentoo penguins: an Antarctic world with large<br />

visible pools for the animals that not only offer a<br />

themed experience for children and adults, but a<br />

water ride also travels through a part of the new<br />

animal habitat. Something extra special here is that<br />

the water canal leads through a glass tunnel under<br />

the penguin pool, offering a completely different<br />

perspective.<br />

Naturally the whole attraction is supported by a nice<br />

story: the attraction prepares the park guests for an<br />

Antarctic expedition. In the so-called “Briefing<br />

Station” they are primed up for the cold and wind,<br />

to then plunge for a short period into the Antarctic<br />

or rather the penguin enclosure. The whole thing is<br />

underlined by fitting decoration and sound effects.<br />

At the end naturally a typical drop is waiting – very<br />

considerately located directly at the gastronomy<br />

line – and prepares the ride guests for a nice piece<br />

of adrenalin. “Pinguine! Abenteuer Antarktis” is a<br />

special experience that one is used to from Merlin,<br />

and the combination of ride attraction with animals<br />

is very successful.<br />

There are two other ride attractions in the rest of the<br />

park area. The earlier existing tractor ride has<br />

received the name “Jeep Safari”, and has been<br />

equipped with the corresponding jeeps. The technology<br />

has been improved in order to increase the<br />

speed. And there is the “Shanghai Express” travelling<br />

around the Chinese slide tower, without any<br />

really notable changes. Additionally the playgrounds,<br />

the hedge labyrinth, the trampoline and<br />

the gastronomy buildings have been retained as<br />

they were during the time of CentrO. <strong>Park</strong>. The landscape<br />

garden architecture has naturally not been<br />

changed, as the area has grown beautifully in the<br />

meantime, and offers a special note of relaxation.<br />

There is a so-called master plan for Life Abenteuer<br />

<strong>Park</strong> for up to 2017, containing further investment.<br />

New attractions are being considered that always<br />

have a connection to the animal world, and various<br />

continents as theme worlds. A closer choice will be<br />

crocodiles and a small type of hippopotamus,<br />

which apparently will be linked to a track attraction<br />

similar to a coaster. All this depends on just how<br />

successful this new concept will be. The past has<br />

72


shown just how quickly the Ruhr region can<br />

condemn a project: visitors are drawn to the new<br />

park, naturally also by the new location of the<br />

Legoland Discovery Centre; on the other hand<br />

many already know the Sea Life Centre that has already<br />

existed for years. Visitors have access to the<br />

park in combination with the centre, which doesn’t<br />

have all that much new on offer in order to market<br />

it as an individual product. Those visitors who only<br />

wish to use the park, which in principle comprises<br />

only of the new water attraction, will be disappointed.<br />

The grapevine in the populous Ruhr area functions<br />

excellently and has already managed to bag<br />

Warner Bros. Movie World that had opened early,<br />

and which was at that time actually an excellent<br />

park. And the Ruhr prattlers hardly ever forgive.<br />

Even these days, the park has the reputation that<br />

not all attractions have been opened and are only<br />

half finished, just as it had been presented in the<br />

first months after opening. So something could may<br />

well happen to the new attraction at Oberhausen, if<br />

it’s not immediately obvious that it’s an extension to<br />

the Sea Life Centre.<br />

Nevertheless the earlier Centro <strong>Park</strong> has found a<br />

good partner in the Merlin Entertainments Group,<br />

and one can wait eagerly to see which direction the<br />

future will take – also and particularly because the<br />

Zoom-Erlebniswelt in Gelsenkirchen as well as the<br />

Duisburg Zoo are hard competitors in the Ruhr area<br />

in the matter of animal presentation, and could<br />

stand in the way.<br />

■<br />

Nature has conquered a<br />

large part of the park – a very<br />

special relaxing charm<br />

A large part of the park<br />

still looks the same as earlier,<br />

but almost without any rides<br />

BREEZING IN?<br />

Just a ticket for the new Sea<br />

Life Abenteuer <strong>Park</strong> alone<br />

is not possible, but available<br />

always in connection with the<br />

Sea Life Aquarium. An admittance<br />

ticket costs 23 Euro<br />

– for both adults and children!<br />

And unbelievable: children<br />

under the age of 15 years<br />

cannot enter unless accompanied<br />

by an adult. ■<br />

WATERPARK<br />

The deep and steep<br />

drop may well become the<br />

trademark of the<br />

“AdrenaLIM Blaster”<br />

Xocomil with an area of almost<br />

8 hectares is the largest and<br />

most visited water park in Guatemala.<br />

It is a part of the Xetulul<br />

Theme <strong>Park</strong> Resorts, and is<br />

located directly next to the<br />

largest theme park in the country.<br />

And only a few months ago<br />

it received the new “AdrenaLIM<br />

IRTRA<br />

he so-called “Uphill Water Coaster” is enjoying<br />

Tincreased popularity, transporting by way of<br />

the attractive ride dynamic of a coaster course on<br />

a water slide: namely by providing not only descents<br />

but also ascents. The world’s first slide of<br />

this type was developed by NBGS in 1994 for its<br />

own water park Schlitterbahn in Texas. In 2006, the<br />

Canadian water slide manufacturer Whitewater<br />

West, known these days as WhiteWater, took over<br />

the patent, and since then has been selling worldwide<br />

under the label “Master Blaster”. Powerful<br />

water jets provide for sliders being vigorously<br />

“washed to the top” on every type of ascent, which<br />

is quite a lively and fun experience.<br />

The slide course is hardly<br />

visible from outside<br />

The start height of 17<br />

metres has to be reached by<br />

visitor’s own power, before the<br />

speedy slide fun<br />

74


In the meanwhile competitor company ProSlide<br />

developed an uphill-slide with linear induction<br />

motors, and the appertaining magnetic rafts.<br />

Although the ascents on these “HydroMagnetics”<br />

named slides are substantially drier, they are however<br />

a lot more powerful. The first slide of this type<br />

opened in 2005 at the American Six Flags New<br />

England <strong>Park</strong>.<br />

WhiteWater has now its own LIM-variation in its<br />

portfolio, and has erected its first so called<br />

“AdrenaLIM Blaster” at the Central American<br />

water park Xocomil.<br />

Following a start height of 17 metres, it all about<br />

ascents and descents. Altogether the rafts catapult<br />

to the top six times per LIM, blasting riders uphill<br />

with the use of a magnet on the waterslide floor<br />

and a metal plate on the bottom of the inline<br />

inflatable boat.<br />

As a surprise, the deepest drop is located at the<br />

end of the 307 metre long water slide, where 2-<br />

person, 3-person and 4-person inline inflatable<br />

boats are allowed. The maximum speed is 46 kilometres<br />

per hour (13 m/s), and the construction’s<br />

capacity is 480 persons per hour.<br />

The new “Uphill Water<br />

Coaster” at Xocomil has a very<br />

interesting track course<br />

The lush vegetation in<br />

particular gives the water park<br />

an atmospheric and consistent<br />

overall picture<br />

75


The “Family Raft Ride”<br />

and the “SuperBowl” from<br />

WhiteWater<br />

The water park that was erected in 1997 around<br />

an artificial Maya pyramid already has a Multi-<br />

Lane Mat-Racer”, a “Boomerango”, a “Super-<br />

Bowl”, and a “Double Wave Pool” from White-<br />

Water. New to be added this year are two<br />

“AquaLoops”. However, the operator also has water<br />

slides from other firms in the programme, for<br />

example a very well themed Lazy River and three<br />

large water playgrounds from aquakita.<br />

The operator of the leisure resort in San Martín<br />

Zapotitlán is the public welfare organisation IRTRA<br />

(instituto de recreacion de los trabajadores de la<br />

empresa privada de Guatemala), which also<br />

operates other amusement parks, water parks,<br />

and hotels in the country. All members and their<br />

families enjoy free admittance; all others have to<br />

pay 100 Quetzal (almost 10 Euro); children may<br />

enter at half price.<br />

The tower of the slide is<br />

also impressive<br />

UNIVERSAL STUDIOS ORLANDO<br />

It has been obvious for quite<br />

some time that the extremely<br />

successful theme area “The<br />

Wizarding World of Harry Potter”<br />

that opened in 2010, is to be<br />

extended. And details have now<br />

been revealed.<br />

Text:<br />

Frank Lanfer<br />

Photos: Universal Studios,<br />

Google Earth<br />

In addition to the imposing magic castle “Hogwarts”<br />

and the village belonging to it called “Hogsmeade”,<br />

there will also be the well known “Daigon<br />

Alley and “London” joining them out of the well<br />

known films and novels, from 2014 on.<br />

The marketing strategy in the process: the extension<br />

of the theme land will not take place at Universal<br />

Islands Of Adventure, but at the neighbouring<br />

theme park Universal Studios Florida. Although<br />

there will be a connection between these two<br />

magical locations with the “Hogwarts Express” with<br />

which the guests can travel in proper style from<br />

park to park, however to experience the complete<br />

Harry-Potter-World, all train passengers must be<br />

the owner of an expensive Two-<strong>Park</strong>-Ticket, or<br />

alternatively the so-called <strong>Park</strong>-Hopper-Ticket.<br />

With the huge success with “The Wizarding World<br />

of Harry Potter” Islands Of Adventure could show<br />

an visitor increase of over 20% despite the crucial<br />

times, and so the second park is to be extended. If<br />

one wishes to view it so – a reverse step of a theme<br />

park concept: not more themes in one park, but a<br />

theme in two parks! The question as to whether or<br />

not there is only one license fee to pay to Warner<br />

Bros., still remains unanswered.<br />

The “Hogwarts Express” travels – as in the film –<br />

between “Hogsmeade” and “London”. Although<br />

both end stations have been designed in detail, the<br />

ride itself takes place over a supported track bed.<br />

Three trains travel along this course, which have<br />

windows without a view to the real backstage area<br />

in order not to disturb the illusion, and instead a<br />

“real” ride between “Hogsmeade” and “London”<br />

and reverse, is played on monitors. A total of six<br />

different films, for example, day and night travel,<br />

have already been produced.<br />

78


In the new park area there will be, in addition to the<br />

many shops and restaurants that Harry Potter fans<br />

already know from the films and novels, a new ride<br />

construction as well: “Gringotts Coaster” leans<br />

thematically towards the magic bank of the same<br />

name. The darkride and coaster attraction harbours<br />

an Indoor-Highspeed-Coaster, which will delve<br />

deep down into the bank and dragons will be bound<br />

to be encountered.<br />

Unfortunately with the erection of the Harry-Potter<br />

area at Universal Studios, a milestone of the park<br />

and Studio will disappear in equal measure, as the<br />

new theme area comes into being on the area of the<br />

“Jaws” attraction. The axed boat tour was located<br />

between “Earthquake – The Big One” and the auditorium<br />

“Fear Factor Live” or alternatively between<br />

the area “San Francisco / Amity” and the “World<br />

Expo”.<br />

THEME PARK & RESORT WORLD ASIA CONGRESS 2013<br />

Conference organiser Oppland<br />

is for the second time coordinating<br />

the Theme <strong>Park</strong> & Resorts<br />

World Asia Congress in Shanghai,<br />

taking place on the 12 th and<br />

13 th of September 2013. The<br />

event is aimed mainly at the<br />

countless real estate developers<br />

who are active all over the<br />

People’s Republic, and who –<br />

quite regularly due to taxation<br />

reasons – also are involved in<br />

theme parks.<br />

One of last year’s<br />

speakers was Zeren Dai (Vice<br />

President China Dinosaurland)<br />

On the speaker list from last year when the<br />

congress first took place, representatives of<br />

theme park operators were for example Zeren Dai<br />

from China Dinosaurland, Makoto Sato from the<br />

theme park sector of the “Hello Kitty”-firm Sanrio,<br />

and Miikka Seppälä from the Finnish theme park<br />

Särkänniemi, who was obviously invited by Rovio<br />

China in order to speak about his success with the<br />

Angry Birds-brand. In addition to these practical<br />

persons from the branch there were mainly representatives<br />

of design firms such as Forrec, the<br />

Sanderson Group, or licensors such as Paramount<br />

or Rovio, who explained in their talks about the<br />

planning of theme parks and the potential of licensing<br />

contracts in example projects.<br />

This year, the congress will take place in Shanghai<br />

once again, however at the new location at the Le<br />

Meridien SheShan in the large city. Speakers have<br />

been announced as, amongst others, Andrew Bolstein<br />

from Disney Resort in Shanghai, Barry Cox<br />

from Merlin Entertainments, Junyang Lei from<br />

Happy Valley Shanghai and Jian Li von OCT Vision<br />

. All will be talking about their experiences in the<br />

operation of theme parks and amusement facilities<br />

in Asia.<br />

A few stands will be available for rent in the foyer of<br />

the conference hall, available to sponsors of the<br />

event to present their products and services.<br />

The event is not the only one of its kind though:<br />

another, the Theme <strong>Park</strong> and Resort Expansion<br />

Summit, has already taken place for the third time<br />

in April this year. This conference also takes place<br />

in Shanghai, and the agenda has similar themes.<br />

Just how many of these types of events can be<br />

carried by the Chinese market in the future, remains<br />

to be seen. In principle there is a demand,<br />

particularly the IAAPA Asian Attractions Expo with<br />

its extensive conference programme, which however<br />

has avoided Shanghai as event location, with<br />

the exception of the year 2006. IAAPA has a<br />

traditional preference for Hong Kong.<br />

The Fort Fun Abenteuerland located in the depths<br />

of the Sauerland has a new ride construction since<br />

the 9 th May, which is operated under the witty word<br />

play name of “YuKan Raft”.<br />

Nevertheless: it’s not completely new, as although<br />

generally overhauled and newly painted, it is a<br />

showan attraction which family Plaenert was on tour<br />

earlier. This is a “Top Spin 2” from Huss Rides, in<br />

other words a small 28-seat version<br />

of the well known “Top Spin” family.<br />

The “YuKan Raft” has been placed<br />

on the location of the Swing Boat<br />

“Pirat” from Huss, which had provided<br />

a lot of fun at the park until<br />

2011. The new ride construction<br />

looks very attractive, integrated into<br />

CHESSINGTON WORLD OF ADVENTURES<br />

After several years of improving<br />

and expanding the animal habitats<br />

at “Chessington World of<br />

Adventures”, the park has now<br />

merged ride with animal exhibit<br />

for the first time. “Zufari: Ride<br />

into Africa” gives guests the<br />

chance to experience a safari<br />

adventure, coming face to face<br />

with zebras, rhinos, giraffes and<br />

ostriches.<br />

Text & Photos: Marcus Gaines<br />

The ride takes up the area of land behind the<br />

Wanayama section of the park, which opened<br />

in 2010, producing the African area of the park. It<br />

seems apparent that “Zufari” was in the pipeline<br />

right from the inception of Wanayama.<br />

The ride begins with an interactive pre-show<br />

during which research leader Chase Van-Drive<br />

explains that they discovered a new area of Africa<br />

which they’ve named “Zufari”. Chase asks guests<br />

to go on an expedition to log the animals found<br />

there. A friendly lemur called Gozi takes over to<br />

explain more. Courtesy of the latest technology,<br />

and a witty cast member hidden from view, Gozi<br />

interacts directly with guests asking questions<br />

and telling jokes.<br />

Upon exiting the pre-show, adventurers board<br />

one of the 6 ex-army Leyland Daf trucks. The extensively<br />

themed trucks do not run on rails, although<br />

they do follow a well used path.<br />

The first port of call is a splash down into a small<br />

river to see flamingos, which sadly are difficult to<br />

spot beyond the indiscreet electric fence. Travelling<br />

past mysterious rock drawings, and an<br />

animal house that could do with a bit more themeing<br />

to make it less obvious, riders get their first<br />

view of the savannah and its inhabitants.<br />

Guests can enjoy great views of giraffes, zebras<br />

plus a number of ostriches – if only the fences and<br />

animal shelters could have been blended into the<br />

landscape more subtly.<br />

Then it’s time to search for the biggest and most<br />

impressive inhabitants: “Zufari” is home to three<br />

white rhino and from the trucks one has great<br />

views of the animals. But uh oh, the rhino appear<br />

to have knocked down a tree blocking the path.<br />

And it appears as though the only way out is<br />

through the cave that visitors were told to avoid<br />

during the pre-show.<br />

82


Given the nature of the ride it’s inevitable it’ll be<br />

compared with “Rhino Rally” at “Busch Gardens<br />

Tampa”, and “Kilimanjaro Safari” at “Disney’s<br />

Animal Kingdom”, and the short answer is, it’s not<br />

as big or as impressive. “Zufari” is considerably<br />

shorter, has far fewer and less variety of animals,<br />

and the cave finale is rather disappointing. But for<br />

those who’ve not been to Florida and for kids, the<br />

very target audience of<br />

the park, it’s truly<br />

exciting.<br />

Kids genuinely believe<br />

they are going on a real<br />

safari and being able to<br />

get so close to the animals,<br />

is an experience<br />

they won’t forget. A<br />

major advantage of<br />

“Zufari” being on a<br />

smaller ground area, is<br />

that one can get seemingly<br />

a lot closer to<br />

animals than in Florida.<br />

Wheelchair users and<br />

those under 110 centimetres,<br />

are unable to<br />

take part in the ride,<br />

however almost all<br />

animals are visible from<br />

any of the viewing<br />

areas.<br />

“Zufari” is great fun and<br />

is unlike anything the<br />

less well travelled will<br />

have seen, and for<br />

those concerned, the ride is aimed<br />

to be an exciting adventure.<br />

Maybe in time more varieties of<br />

animals can be added, and the<br />

cave be made more scary – or<br />

even better, it could be dropped<br />

completely.<br />

OAKWOOD<br />

The British Oakwood Theme<br />

<strong>Park</strong> has announced that its new<br />

£4 million family area of the park<br />

will be called “Neverland”, and<br />

themed on Peter Pan.<br />

Text:<br />

The rides all take inspiration from the book<br />

written by J M Barrie, and there will be a “Skull<br />

Rock” log flume, “Captain Hooks House of<br />

Havoc” soft play, “Lost Boys Adventure”, “Crocodile<br />

Coaster”, “Tink’s Flying School”, “Jolly Roger”<br />

mini galleon, “Neverland Chase”, and “Sights of<br />

London Taxi Ride”. All park guests will be able to<br />

enter the new themed area through an interactive<br />

Walkthrough called “Journey to Neverland”. The<br />

experience takes visitors on the journey from the<br />

Darling house, flying over London, before arriving<br />

at “Neverland”.<br />

Many of the rides were purchased from the<br />

Camelot theme park that closed at the end of the<br />

2012 season.<br />

All the rides have been substantially re-themed to<br />

shed the knight and medieval look, and to fit to<br />

either “Neverland” or London, where Peter Pan<br />

befriends Wendy, John, and Michael Darling.<br />

The log flume has become unrecognisable from<br />

its “Camelot” days, as it now has a pirate themed<br />

darkride portion and a climax with a splash down<br />

as it comes out of an eye of the large 12 metres<br />

high “Skull Rock”.<br />

LINNANMÄKI<br />

The Finnish capital city park<br />

has had its existing Haunted<br />

House completely renovated<br />

during the past off-season.<br />

<strong>English</strong> theming specialist Nick Farmer took the<br />

situation into hand, and once again produced<br />

his usual successful work. The newly opened<br />

“Kyöpelinvuoren Hotelli” on the 27th of April doesn’t<br />

look particularly inviting to overnight<br />

guests from the outside. Inside there are no<br />

beds awaiting the supposed guests, but 4-<br />

seat cars instead. These are equipped with<br />

lots of special effects such as air blows,<br />

vibrations, and passengers being touched<br />

on the back. Two long minutes of thrill are<br />

guaranteed during the 100 m ride into the<br />

unknown with new scenes – however,<br />

everything is ‘only just’ family friendly, as<br />

fitting to a family park. After all, park guests<br />

with a minimum height of 100 cm are already allowed<br />

to participate (accompanied by an adult).<br />

Manufacturer of the new ride attraction is the Italian<br />

Darkride specialist Gosetto.<br />

■<br />

Not all the rides are from Camelot, “Tink’s Flying<br />

School” had already existed at the park,<br />

the Larson Flying Scooters were called “Plane<br />

Crazy” and were themed as aeroplanes at an<br />

airport, but now it’s been repainted green,<br />

complete with Tinkerbell standing in the centre<br />

overlooking riders. And it’s not just the rides that<br />

have been themed, as the entire 3 acre area of<br />

the park has been landscaped with appropriate<br />

theming so as to create an immersive area,<br />

essential when creating a branded area within a<br />

park. Director of Oakwood, Dominic Jones, said;<br />

“What better inspiration for a theme park could<br />

there be than Peter Pan – ‘the boy who<br />

would not grow up’? This is by far the<br />

biggest investment at Oakwood in<br />

recent times, and it will completely<br />

transform and add significantly to the<br />

visitor experience.”<br />

“Neverland” is expected to open at the<br />

end of May.<br />

BARRA MALL<br />

An unusual attraction has just opened in the<br />

Barra shopping mall complex in Rio de Janeiro,<br />

which is operated by the Brazilian company<br />

Multiplan.<br />

The facade, which is more or<br />

less a copy of a travelling Ghost<br />

Ride in Europe, contains a<br />

combination of two ride constructions:<br />

on the upper level a<br />

Darkride with 2-seat cars, and<br />

on the ground level of the<br />

attraction a mini-dodgem. The “2-in-1”<br />

construction was realized by Italian<br />

company Gosetto.<br />

Die Stadt Neunkirchen (Saar), der Verkehrsverein und die DPD GbR haben in<br />

den vergangenen Jahren mit einem neuen Konzept den Grundstein für einen neuen,<br />

einzigartigen Weihnachtsmarkt in der Mitte der Innenstadt Neunkirchen gelegt.<br />

Um diesen seit Jahrzehnten bestehenden Weihnachtsmarkt noch besser, schöner<br />

und größer zu gestalten, suchen wir besonders Händler, die ihr Handwerk anbieten<br />

und vorführen, sowie auch andere Anbieter zum Beispiel von Glas, Holz, Töpferwaren,<br />

kunsthandwerklichen Artikeln, Weihnachtsschmuck und alle Artikel,<br />

die zu einem Weihnachtsmarkt passen. Der Veranstalter stellt einheitliche<br />

Weihnachtshütten mit Außendekoration in verschiedenen Größen zu Verfügung.<br />

Auch Verzehr wird berücksichtigt. Ein Kindergeschäft mit sehr aufwändiger<br />

Weihnachtsdekoration wird auch zugelassen.<br />

Schriftliche Bewerbungen mit genauer Beschreibung und Fotos des<br />

Warenangebots bis zum 30.06.2013 an folgende Adresse:<br />
