KALEIDOSCOPE<br />

TWISTER<br />

The “Twister” has<br />

changed ownership from Lothar<br />

Honecker (l.) to Aljoscha<br />

Eickholt<br />

Cynthia Hauck and Nicola<br />

Renz have taken over the “Sky<br />

Glider” from Prumbaum<br />

Text & Photos: Norman Vogt<br />

Shortly before the beginning of the season,<br />

Aljoscha Eickholt (Augsburg/Stuttgart) took over<br />

the Reverchon “Twister” from Lothar Honecker<br />

from Mutterstadt, Palatinate. The family ride was<br />

handed over and built up under new management<br />

for the first time at the Reutlingen Frühlingsfest.<br />

During the very first build up, the new owner was<br />

supported by the previous owner, Lothar Honecker.<br />

Even last year, after he had parted with the “Star<br />

Café”, Eickholt wanted to tour with a used Twister.<br />

Initially there were plans to buy a Fähtz construction,<br />

but the deal was called off shortly before handover.<br />

Eventually he hit lucky with the French Reverchon<br />

example from Honecker that had been put up for sale<br />

(formerly from Mutterstadt). Very quickly a contract<br />

between the two showmen was entered into and the<br />

ride was ready to be handed over “out of the<br />

baggage van”. The ride was built in 1974 and initially<br />

went into operation under the Papst firm from Eggenfelden.<br />

After that it was owned by the showmen<br />

Wendler from Iserlohn (under the name of “Musiklift”),<br />

Sperlich from Mertendorf (“Mr. Twister”), and lastly by<br />

Honecker from Mutterstadt. It was above all the<br />

clever theme and the fine overall condition that<br />

tipped the scales towards the purchase of the<br />

attraction. Moreover, the ride can be adjusted to<br />

operate at any speed. Eickholt wants to tour the<br />

newly purchased ride (front 16 m, 17.50 m deep, ride<br />

height 12 m, power 40 kW), which was very well<br />

received at the Reutlingen Frühlingsfest, throughout<br />

Baden-Württemberg, Rhineland-Palatinate and<br />

Bavaria.<br />

SKY GLIDER<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Norman Vogt<br />

The only touring "Sky Glider" ride in Germany has<br />

a new owner: Nicola Renz and Cynthia Hauck from<br />

Stuttgart and Homburg took over the interactive<br />

ride from Stefan Prumbaum from Cologne.<br />

It was, among other factors, the compact and lightweight<br />

construction, the appealing design with a<br />

colourful backflash, as well as the fair price that<br />

persuaded Renz and Hauck to buy the "Sky Glider".<br />

After the takeover, they presented their attraction at the<br />

Pferdemarkt, or horse market, in Heilbronn in February,<br />

before they moved on to Kirchheim/Teck. This season,<br />

the ride will appear at, among others venues, the fairgrounds<br />

in Aalen, Völkingen, Speyer, Winnenden,<br />

Pirmasens and Merzig. The ride has ground measurements<br />

of 14 x 6 m, a height of 12 m and electrical<br />

requirements of 15 kW, and requires one transport<br />

vehicle for relocation.<br />

A great honour was given to the Markt and Schaustellermuseum<br />

Essen; a number of scenes from<br />

the documentary film "Peter und der Wolf – Story<br />

of a World Success” were shot inside the museum.<br />

The museum is revealed in 15 to 18 minutes – spread<br />

over 7 parts of the total film, and out of a total film<br />

length of 52 minutes, and provides for a lovely<br />

ambience. On Sunday, 4 th May, the film première took<br />

place at the Essen “Lichtburg” – one of the most<br />

beautiful cinemas in Germany – in the presence of,<br />

among others, producer Axel Fuhrmann, author Axel<br />

Brüggemann, Oscar-award winner Suzie Templeton,<br />

and actress Isabel von Karajan (the daughter of the<br />

great conductor). The employees of the Markt and<br />

Schaustellermuseum were also present at the<br />

première.<br />

KUDDEL THE SHARK<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Ralf Schmitt<br />

The family coaster "Kuddel der Hai" from the Belli<br />

family started off into its second season at the Hamburg<br />

Frühjahrsdom with a number of new features.<br />

Since its première last year, there have been a lot of<br />

changes to the coaster, boasting a total track length of<br />

135 metres, according to Sascha Belli. New features are,<br />

among others, a fountain basin in front of the construction,<br />

as well as several life-size figures from the<br />

maritime world (including a pirate, which has become a<br />

popular much-photographed motif) in front of and inside<br />

the attraction. In the station area with barrier-free access,<br />

the waiting time for the passengers proves quite<br />

amusing and entertaining, due to air and water jets being<br />

installed along the stairs. Also a new feature is that the<br />

cars of the coaster train are illuminated, so that it is easier<br />

Many new features at the Belli’s<br />

family coaster “Kuddel der Hai”<br />

The friendly “Kuddel der Hai” crew: Rudolf,<br />

Ina, Bianca, and Sascha Belli (f.l.t.r.)<br />

for spectators to follow the course of the<br />

train. This is further enhanced by the right<br />

hand upper front cover having been removed<br />

so that the public outside can follow<br />

the moment when the train comes out<br />

of the upper right curve and pulls into the<br />

long straight. In addition to the appearances<br />

at the Dom events in Hamburg, this<br />

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

other venues, the Baumblütenfest, or Tree<br />

Blossom Festival in Werder, as well as the<br />

Schützenfest in Hannover.<br />

NAME SIGNS<br />

LONDON<br />

Text: Owen Ralph<br />

After a prolonged tender<br />

process by London’s<br />

Royal <strong>Park</strong>s, PWR Events<br />

has confirmed that it will<br />

continue to promote and<br />

manage Hyde <strong>Park</strong> Winter<br />

Wonderland through until<br />

2017. “We have loved<br />

creating Hyde <strong>Park</strong> Winter<br />

Wonderland from the<br />

beginning and are delighted<br />

that we can continue<br />

to build on its success,”<br />

says PWR Events<br />

director Jamie Wells. “Our<br />

team will continue to develop<br />

the event and make it<br />

even better in the coming<br />

years.” “The free-to-access<br />

event has become a<br />

popular destination for visitors<br />

from around the world,”<br />

adds Penelope Boyd, head<br />

of events and filming at The<br />

Royal <strong>Park</strong>s. “PWR Events<br />

have been instrumental in<br />

making the event a huge<br />

success and it is now firmly<br />

established as a top<br />

attraction in the seasonal<br />

calendar. Holding events<br />

not only attracts a diverse<br />

audience to our parks; they<br />

also provide a vital source<br />

of income.” PWR, which<br />

also organises ice rinks and<br />

a handful of concerts at<br />

prestigious sites in and<br />

around the British capital,<br />

launched Winter Wonderland<br />

in 2007 together with<br />

AEG Live, but has been running<br />

it solo since 2011. It is<br />

understood that The Royal<br />

<strong>Park</strong>s received at least one<br />

rival bid for the new fouryear<br />

contract, including an<br />

application from AEG. ■<br />

DODGEM TRACK<br />

Text & Photo: Helmut Bresler<br />

At the Würzburg Frühlingsvolksfest, Heiner Distel<br />

introduced the new LED-illuminated power poles<br />

on his dodgem track - a visually very effective idea<br />

realised by only a couple of dodgem track owners<br />

so far.<br />

A new and comic feature is the fact that the LEDs<br />

reflect the colours and the rhythms of the façade<br />

lighting, thus providing new effects for the track. The<br />

driving force behind the idea was his son, Heiner<br />

Photos: Ralf Schmitt, Michael Bonhoff<br />

New name signs could be seen at two large<br />

attractions in Hamburg and in Berlin at the beginning<br />

of the new season. At the Hamburg Frühjahrsdom,<br />

Fellerhoff’s Ghost Ride was equipped with the new<br />

“Geisterhotel” neon-lit lettering. Moreover, the “Jupiter”<br />

wheel from the Worms Göbel firm has now become the<br />

“Juwel” Ferris Wheel. The new name sign was presented<br />

at the Spring Festival in Berlin for the first time. As of now,<br />

it can no longer be confused with the “Jupiter” Ferris<br />

Wheel from the Barth & Kipp firm from Bonn. ■<br />

Distel Jnr., who sees the realised theme only as the first<br />

development stage. The small control boxes in the<br />

cars, for example, can also register the kind of<br />

crashes; identify which side they came from and,<br />

according to the data registered, the power poles of<br />

the most aggressive and the most defensive driver displayed<br />

in red or green, as well as further options for<br />

many other gimmicks. The public’s response was<br />

highly positive. The new feature was realised by a<br />

company from Italy specialising in the electronic<br />

ignition of fireworks displays.<br />

NEW PRODUCTS<br />

FUZZY’S LACHSALOON<br />

The building of the<br />

construction has already begun<br />

Text: Ralf Schmitt<br />

Photos: Archiv Rasch<br />

The draft for Rico Rasch’s<br />

new Funhouse “Fuzzy’s<br />

Lachsaloon”<br />

Rico Rasch from Lunden (Schleswig Holstein),<br />

who has specialized in ghost rides, will now<br />

also join the fun sector. His brand new Funhouse,<br />

“Fuzzy’s Lachsaloon”, will go into<br />

operation before the end of this season.<br />

With a front length of 25 metres, a depth of 7<br />

metres and a height of 14 metres (excluding the<br />

name sign), the multi-storey construction is without<br />

doubt to be classified as an “XXL” attraction. The<br />

name “Fuzzy’s Lachsaloon” may well be known to<br />

“more mature” fair enthusiasts in Germany. After<br />

all, a combination of a ride and walkthrough<br />

construction of the same name was toured by,<br />

among others, the Peeters firm many years ago.<br />

Rico Rasch revived this name – and with it also the<br />

currently somewhat neglected “Wild West” theme<br />

for funhouse constructions. While the construction<br />

is built by the Czech manufacturer Ride Technic<br />

(which recently has caused a huge furore with a<br />

number of its projects such as, among others, the<br />

new Prater ghost ride as well as the construction<br />

of Ferris WheelsFreefall towers, walkthrough<br />

constructions and giant chain rides – and can<br />

already list several German customers as references<br />

for future contracts), the experts from the<br />

Dutch BB Dekorateurs firm were contracted for the<br />

design. According to the draft (and as Rico Rasch<br />

explained in an interview with the Kirmes & <strong>Park</strong><br />

Revue) “Fuzzy’s Lachsaloon” will boast several<br />

unique features and novelties. At the end of the<br />

multi-storey experience course, for example,<br />

visitors can choose between several options to<br />

come back downstairs; either through the 12-metre<br />

giant spiral slide, via a sliding pole, or even in a<br />

“freefall” from the built-in Freefall tower. Less<br />

daring visitors can also use the conventional staircase,<br />

however. But even the stairs inside this funhouse<br />

hold many surprises, he did not want to give<br />

any further details at that stage.<br />

The construction will be built on two centre trailers.<br />

“Fuzzy’s Lachsaloon” is to go into operation this<br />

season, in late autumn – or possibly at a very wellattended<br />

Christmas Market. In anticipation of the<br />

new purchase, Rasch has parted with his “Fantasmagor”<br />

Ghost Ride.<br />

Just as announced in the autumn of 2013 (“planned / ordered<br />

/ confirmed delivery March 2014!”!), the brand new “Mega King<br />

Tower” from Andreas Zinnecker has now gone into operation.<br />

The photos shown here were taken on the “launch date” at the<br />

Palmkirmes in Recklinghausen, from where the Freefall Tower<br />

toured on to its official inauguration at the Stuttgart Frühlingsfest<br />

at a lightning pace. In Stuttgart, the “Mega King Tower” was<br />

presented with the second paybox still missing in Recklinghausen,<br />

further decoration and lighting elements – and the monkey on top<br />

of the tower. More details will be available in the next Kirmes &<br />

The third staging of the Wuppertal Mega Fair at the<br />

stadium/zoo will be held from 9 th to 12 th May.<br />

Although the event has proven successful from the<br />

very beginning, some people are still critical of the<br />

name “Mega Fair”. Those responsible for organising<br />

the event take some note of the criticism, but<br />

with some amusement and a wink of the eye however.<br />

After all, the deliberately chosen and<br />

provocative name was an essential part of the<br />

marketing campaign.<br />

Never before has the regional media covered a fair<br />

event in the 'cable car city' so extensively. The Westdeutsche<br />

Zeitung newspaper, Radio Wuppertal, and<br />

the WDR television station with its series “Lokalzeit<br />

Bergisch-Land” covered the event in detail and<br />

praised the new fair event in the city’s centre. Therefore,<br />

there is no reason to change the name. The Mega<br />

Fair has established itself and provokes a great of<br />

debate in Wuppertal. The date of the event has been<br />

rescheduled from June to May, however. The first two<br />

events took place immediately after the Sterkrade<br />

Fronleichnamskirmes; in other words on the second<br />

weekend after Corpus Christi Day, so that some of the<br />

showmen were able to relocate to Wuppertal from<br />

there. A second argument in favour of this date is the<br />

“football free time” in the stadium at the zoo. This year,<br />

on the occasion of the FIFA World Cup, an outdoor<br />

screening was to be held inside the stadium – yet two<br />

large events could not really be held at the same time.<br />

However, the plans for this event apparently have now<br />

fallen apart. Nonetheless, Wuppertal’s largest city<br />

festival, “Lange Tisch”, or “long table”, with a total<br />

length of 13 kilometres, is to take place on the said<br />

weekend, with the locals celebrating their own festival<br />

with more than 40 stages along the Talachse. Everybody<br />

places tables and chairs in front of their doors<br />

and bring out food and drinks. The fair event would<br />

hardly have stood a chance against the city festival<br />

being held only every five years. This is the reason that<br />

the city authorities offered the second weekend in May<br />

as an alternative date, as the Wuppertal Sports Club<br />

has an away match on this weekend and thus<br />

A LOOK FORWARD<br />

INFO<br />

Opening hours:<br />

■ Friday 2 p.m. to 11 p.m.<br />

■ Sunday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.<br />

■ Monday 2 p.m. to 10 p.m.<br />

everything should work out smoothly. Next year, the<br />

Mega-Fair can be held on the second weekend after<br />

Corpus Christi Day again.<br />

This year, there will be even more space available for<br />

the Wuppertal Volksfest. While only the area in front of<br />

the cable car station and in front of the stadium stand<br />

could be used for the première in 2012, it was possible<br />

to place the “Spinning Racer” coaster on the<br />

additional football pitch last year. Now the city<br />

authorities have ruled that fairground attractions can<br />

also be built up on this additional football pitch. In<br />

principle, this is a reason for joy – but in the meantime<br />

there have been some dark clouds appearing in the<br />

fairground sky. As the circus and fairground site on<br />

Carnaper Straße is currently being developed, it will no<br />

longer be available for the Easter Fair and circus<br />

appearances, and there are plans to use the<br />

additional football pitch at the stadium as a general<br />

festival ground. As a result, the Mega-Fair would lose<br />

its unique feature of being the only event held in this<br />

area. In theory, this area is completely unsuitable for<br />

other events, as it is partly fenced-in and circus or other<br />

Volksfest events lasting more than two weekends can<br />

only be held during the football season's summer<br />

break. For that reason alone, the city authorities should<br />

look around for a more suitable site. Unfortunately, the<br />

communication between the city authorities and the<br />

two showman associations concerning the search for<br />

other festival grounds has proven quite poor.<br />

More Space Available<br />

This year, visitors to the Mega-Fair will be able to enjoy<br />

six novelties for Wuppertal. With the “Jupiter”<br />

(Barth/Kipp) a 50-metre Ferris Wheel will come to<br />

Wuppertal for the first time. The Ferris Wheel, clearly<br />

visible from any distance, will be used as the primary<br />

advertising medium for the fair. It will be built up in the<br />

entrance area with Markmann’s “Nessy”, a large<br />

family swing, standing directly opposite. With Hartmann’s<br />

“Krumm & Schief Bau”, the funniest construction<br />

site in the world will make its début directly in<br />

front of the cable car station. The “Hexentanz” (Markmann)<br />

will await visitors directly in front of the<br />

additional football pitch, along with two further<br />

novelties; namely the “Shake & Roll” (Schäfer) and the<br />

“Sky-Trip” from Hartman. The additional football pitch<br />

will be laid out as a classic circuit course where the<br />

dodgem track from Fuhrmann, Sterzenbach’s simulator<br />

“Adventure Live” and Kreft’s “Love-Express” will<br />

be presented. They will be joined by Fuhrmann’s chain<br />

ride and the kiddie rides from Kretz, Bauer and Hartmann.<br />

10,000 Flyers and Synchronized Fireworks<br />

The advertising campaign will be further intensified<br />

with huge, eye-catching posters at the cable car<br />

stations and throughout the city, as well as by 31 radio<br />

commercials aired during the week of build-up and<br />

throughout the event. Moreover, large advertisements<br />

will be placed in the Westdeutsche Zeitung newspaper,<br />

the BILD tabloid and in cinema programmes,<br />

and 10,000 flyers will be distributed to local households.<br />

Even though there will be numerous car parks<br />

in close proximity to the festival grounds, visitors are<br />

recommended to use the cable car operating throughout<br />

the event. For the opening of the fair the<br />

synchronized fireworks display will once again be held<br />

on both stadium stands, and Monday will be the<br />

designated Family Day with considerably reduced<br />

prices.<br />

■<br />

The “Krumm & Schief Bau”<br />

from the Hartmann firm is<br />

another novelty at the mega fair<br />

PREMIÈRE<br />

Première at Langenfeld:<br />

Maik Landwermann’s speedy<br />

“<strong>Kick</strong> <strong>Down</strong>” ride<br />

The Italian Fabbri Group did not<br />

build many “Contact” rides. As it<br />

was launched at the very<br />

beginning of the swing and<br />

propeller attraction boom, only<br />

little attention has been paid to<br />

this ride type, even though the<br />

construction scores well in<br />

public consciousness due to its<br />

attractive ride pattern and<br />

economic efficiency. Two examples<br />

are currently on tour<br />

throughout Germany. Maik Landwermann<br />

has now purchased<br />

one and redesigned it as the<br />

“<strong>Kick</strong> <strong>Down</strong>”.<br />

fter the “Fliegender Teppich” (Zierer), Maik<br />

ALandwermann and his partner Stefanie Hohmann<br />

operated from 2005 to 2012 this newly<br />

purchased attraction, which is the second ride for<br />

the show couple hailing from Asendorf and Munich.<br />

Having sold the “Fliegender Teppich” to the<br />

Ukraine two years ago, they explored the<br />

market, checked various options, and certainly<br />

did not make a hasty decision. Last year however,<br />

they eventually hit lucky with the “Eclipse”<br />

ride – a “Contact” built by Fabbri from the Störzer<br />

firm in Marktheidenfeld in Southern Germany.<br />

Landwermann was immediately impressed by this<br />

attraction, discussed it with his family, and then<br />

contacted the owner family Störzer. This spontaneous<br />

approach revealed that, given the fact that the<br />

Störzer family were planning a new purchase<br />

(“Black Out”), the “Eclipse” was indeed up for sale<br />

– but “with a heavy heart”. Nonetheless, the<br />

Störzer family came to be highly satisfied with the<br />

deal, which was duly struck in a relatively short<br />

time. After its last appearance under Störzer<br />

management at the Herbstvolksfest in Cologne, the<br />

ride was handed over without any hitches. Maik<br />

Landwermann was determined to give the ride a<br />

facelift, and the “Eclipse” duly turned into<br />

the “<strong>Kick</strong> <strong>Down</strong>”. In addition to a thorough<br />

technical overhaul, he invested heavily in<br />

the ride’s visual appearance. Uwe Elfering<br />

(the Landwermann family’s “house artist”<br />

of many years standing; among other<br />

notables, he designed the Ferris Wheels)<br />

was the “Master” of redesign, creating<br />

among other features the striking new<br />

“<strong>Kick</strong> <strong>Down</strong>” name sign. The Reckmann<br />

firm supplied the new lighting system,<br />

including the prominent flame LEDs on the<br />

backflash and the side walls. While the<br />

Dröge firm was responsible for the electrical equipment,<br />

cables and wiring, the brand new sound<br />

system was delivered by Uhlenbrock. The Plexiglas<br />

panes were removed all around, as well as the ride<br />

disc handrails, which were<br />

replaced by new handrail<br />

bars built by a locksmith,<br />

providing not only an<br />

appealing visual appearance<br />

but also a better view<br />

of the passengers. Finally,<br />

the “<strong>Kick</strong> <strong>Down</strong>” was ready<br />

for its première at the fair<br />

(with city festival) in<br />

Langenfeld, which turned out to be a big success.<br />

The ride was virtually besieged, largely by<br />

adolescent passengers, and made its rounds<br />

almost continually with the specially produced<br />

“<strong>Kick</strong> <strong>Down</strong>” song, played after a 'countdown',<br />

accompanying every ride and evolving decidedly<br />

into a catchy song. After the successful première<br />

the “<strong>Kick</strong> <strong>Down</strong>” went on to the Frühlingsfest in<br />

Hannover, where it will make another appearance<br />

at the “largest Schützenfest in the world” this<br />

coming summer. Further venues this season will be,<br />

among others, Hof, Oesede, Gesmold, Neuss,<br />

Bruchhausen-Vilsen, and the Lullusfest in Bad<br />

Hersfeld.<br />

PREMIÈRE<br />

Première in Erfurt:<br />

Haberkorn’s “Chaos Airport”<br />

The première of Erfurt couple<br />

Andrea and Mario Haberkorn's<br />

brand new Funhouse attracted<br />

an impressive number of visitors.<br />

With the “Chaos Airport”<br />

built by the Dietz firm, the first<br />

transportable airport in the world<br />

went into operation at the Altstadtfrühlingsfest<br />

in Erfurt, the<br />

capital city of Thuringia, on 5 th<br />

April.<br />

firm in 1994, which the Haberkorn family closed<br />

down for economic reasons after the Altstadtfrühlingsfest<br />

Andrea and Mario Haberkorn came up with the idea<br />

quite some time ago of a Funhouse providing visitors<br />

with an ample variety of action and excitement on a<br />

PREMIÈRE<br />

A number of sections and<br />

course through “Chaos Airport”<br />

question as to<br />

whether or not the<br />

visitors would accept<br />

the attraction is a<br />

clear “yes”, absolutely<br />

without any<br />

“ifs” or “buts”. Even<br />

during its première<br />

the novelty was very<br />

well frequented, and<br />

visitors - both young and old alike - noticeably had<br />

great fun and enjoyed the heady trip through the<br />

chaotic airport, which was equipped with a large<br />

number of distinctive decoration elements such as,<br />

among others, an original serving trolley from the<br />

former GDR airline “Interflug”, an authentic baggage<br />

trolley from Erfurt airport, a large aeroplane above the<br />

construction, as well as several newly designed<br />

moving elements. Due to the open design of the<br />

construction, spectators have an unobstructed view of<br />

almost all sections of the two-storey obstacle course.<br />

The completely open front section is dominated by a<br />

large water basin serving as a “kerosene lake”, a<br />

rolling barrel, an escape slide just as in a real plane,<br />

and an airport control tower designed as a climbing<br />

tower.<br />

But let us start at the very beginning: Having acquired<br />

the boarding cards at the paybox, visitors have to<br />

negotiate the obstacles in the water basin with spitting<br />

fountains. Next comes a rolling belt and a labyrinth,<br />

The Airport tower can also be<br />

climbed<br />

unpredictably moving baggage trolleys, rotating suitcases,<br />

moving baggage lockers and a shaking platform.<br />

Moving staircases lead up to the top storey,<br />

where the course first goes through a dark, smoky<br />

chamber – the "smoke box” as it is known in airports.<br />

From there conveyor belts, glass floors and a moving<br />

balcony lead to a scaffolding replete with obstacles.<br />

After this, the course runs down again to the rolling<br />

barrel (which can also be bypassed) and to the<br />

climbing tower, either via the escape slide or on foot<br />

At the inauguration, the<br />

guests were provided with food<br />

and drink by flight attendants<br />

from “Haberkorn Air”<br />

barrels, and a moving stairway. By way of another<br />

moving stairway, visitors finally find themselves back<br />

on the ground.<br />

The “Chaos Airport” logo and the name sign have been<br />

mounted on the roof of the construction. On a multimedia<br />

LED wall of several square metres, mounted<br />

below the rim, an amusing video spurs on visitors to<br />

take part. It will not be long before live scenes of the<br />

visitors inside the construction are also to be presented<br />

on this media wall. The construction is<br />

equipped with the latest LED technology and the bicoloured<br />

name sign is illuminated by neon light and<br />

LEDs. Even on the first opening day one could see that<br />

the Funhouse was frequented by both young and old,<br />

as well as by whole families, who experienced much<br />

fun inside the chaotic airport. After the successful<br />

première in Erfurt, the “Chaos Airport” will also be<br />

presented at, among other venues, the Frühlingsfest<br />

in Chemnitz, the Freischießen in Peine, the Brezelfest<br />

in Speyer, the Fischerfest in Gernsheim/Rhine and at<br />

the autumn Dippemess, as well as the Herbstmesse in<br />

Freiburg this year. With ground measurements of 22 x<br />

10 metres, electrical requirements of 25 kW, with the<br />

climbing tower being 12 metres in height, relocating<br />

the Funhouse requires two transport vehicles (1<br />

centre trailer and 1 roller incorporated into the<br />

construction).<br />

Premiere in Saarlouis:<br />

the “Rio” Funhouse from the<br />

Dietz family<br />

On 4 th April, the brand new Walkthrough<br />

construction “Rio” from<br />

the Saarbrücken Dietz family,<br />

who are also touring a Miami,<br />

went into operation at the Osterkirmes<br />

in Saarlouis. After its<br />

inauguration by showman pastor<br />

Manfred Simon, the attraction<br />

was opened in the presence of<br />

numerous showmen colleagues<br />

and friends.<br />

The four-level Funhouse was built as a prototype<br />

by the Czech firm Ride Technic last year,<br />

but unfortunately the scheduled date of completion<br />

was repeatedly delayed. On completion<br />

the construction was transported to the Dietz hall<br />

in Saarbrücken in October, where a number of<br />

effects (ordered from the Gosetto firm) were built<br />

in, and some technical details were changed.<br />

According to the owner, the Funhouse is the first<br />

in Germany to feature a “Sky Walk”, enabling<br />

visitors to walk above the spectators’ heads at a<br />

height of 10 metres. Providing a beautiful view,<br />

visitors can also take photos from this platform.<br />

Along the Brazilian-themed course, visitors have<br />

to negotiate more than 20 obstacles, including a<br />

bouncing suspended walkway, a rotating barrel,<br />

moving staircases, neon cords, vibrating floors,<br />

a water course, rotating discs and a slide. LED’s<br />

and spotlights illuminate the construction after<br />

dark. The front was colourfully painted with much<br />

naked skin, and the Samba dancers in short outfits<br />

may well attract much attention.<br />

Further light effects, spotlights and decoration<br />

elements are currently being installed. After the<br />

première in Saarlouis, the Dietz family will also<br />

present their attraction at, among other venues,<br />

Kehl and Kusel this season. The Funhouse has<br />

ground measurements of 19 x 6 metres, a height<br />

of 14 metres, and electrical requirements of about<br />

15 kW. The complete construction is transported<br />

on two trailers (1 centre trailer and 1 baggage<br />

van).<br />

REUTLINGEN<br />

The poster and a<br />

number of impressions of the<br />

Reutlingen Frühlingsfest<br />

Text & Photos: Norman Vogt<br />

Every year, the Frühlingsfest is held on the Bösmannsäcker<br />

fairground in Reutlingen – this year<br />

from 22 nd to 30 th March.<br />

For several years, the event has been organised by<br />

Kai Weeber, who succeeded in putting together a<br />

varied selection of fairground<br />

attractions once<br />

again this year. The Ferris<br />

Wheel from Jost, visible<br />

from any distance, provided<br />

visitors with a<br />

magnificent view. Highly<br />

popular with the younger<br />

generation were the<br />

“Intoxx” (Pandel) and the<br />

“Flipper” from Meeß. They<br />

were joined by Ruoff’s<br />

“Jaguar”, a dodgem<br />

track, Eickholt’s “Twister", and the “XXL Funhouse”<br />

from Renz, and the younger visitors enjoyed a Jet Ride,<br />

a kiddie ride and a kiddie track ride. Near the entrance<br />

there was a small but very cosy rustic-styled beer<br />

garden. While reduced ride prices and special offers<br />

attracted many visitors to the fairground already on the<br />

Wednesday and Thursday, the Spring Festival was<br />

very well attended also during the second weekend<br />

due to beautiful weather.<br />

■<br />

SCHRIESHEIM<br />

Funhouse” in Schriesheim<br />

About 160,000 visitors were recorded at the 435 th<br />

Mathaisemarkt in Schriesheim, which took place<br />

from 7 th to 11 th and from 14 th to 16 th March this year.<br />

As is now tradition, the Matheisemarkt began with the<br />

coronation of the Wine Queen on the Friday. This year,<br />

the event achieved record visitor attendance, as not only<br />

beautiful weather but also this year’s 1250 th city anniversary<br />

attracted the visitors to the fairground at the fire<br />

station. Due to the city anniversary, the festival procession<br />

on the first Sunday was extended from 40 to 95<br />

28


participants and began early at about 1 p.m. Moreover,<br />

another procession with a number of marching bands<br />

was held on the second Sunday. Once again, the Mathaisemarkt<br />

offered a highly varied supporting programme.<br />

Boxing matches, the rally of medium-sized<br />

companies with Baden Württemberg Prime Minister<br />

Kretschmann inside the beer tent, the big FM-Disco-<br />

Party, the Kiddie Day and the fireworks display contributed<br />

to the event’s success. The fairground at the foot<br />

of the Strahlenburg was well worth seeing. Even though<br />

no genuine novelty was presented this year, a varied<br />

selection of fairground attractions, including the “Breakdance”<br />

(Bruch), “Dschungel Train” (Bruch), the “Juwel”<br />

Ferris Wheel (Göbel), the “The King” (Zinnecker), “XXL-<br />

Funhouse” (Renz), Dodgem Track (Haas), and several<br />

kiddie rides could be enjoyed by both young and old. ■<br />

from 28 th March to 1 st April this year.<br />

Bügler’s “Adrenalin” Freefall Tower, a real highlight,<br />

could once again be contracted for this<br />

year’s event after a 10-year break, when visitors<br />

were last able experience freefalls in<br />

Schneider’s “Power Tower” a decade ago on the<br />

occasion of the Hessentag, or Hesse Day. The<br />

“Street Fighter” from A. Zinnecker offered the<br />

public lots of swinging fun, with the “Millennium”<br />

dodgem track from Göbel being placed directly<br />

opposite.<br />

Moreover, the “Taiga Jet” was presented as a<br />

family ride and for the first time under the<br />

management of Schneider. In Bügler’s “Simulator”,<br />

visitors were able to experience racy<br />

chases. Also presented were two classic kiddie<br />

rides, a kiddie chain ride and a nostalgic swing<br />

boat, as well as concession stalls of all kinds and<br />

a beer garden. The Family Day on 1 st April was<br />

held in marvellously sunny weather.<br />

BERLIN-SPANDAU<br />

Freiwald’s “Breakdance"<br />

on the new fairground at the<br />

Spandau citadel<br />

The first “Frühlings-<br />

Spar-Volksfest” at the citadel in<br />

Berlin-Spandau<br />

The Frühlingsfest in Berlin-<br />

Spandau was held at a new<br />

venue and with a new concept<br />

from 22 nd to 30 th March.<br />

The organiser Thilo-Harry Wollenschlaeger<br />

relocated the<br />

festival from the site near the<br />

“Spandau-Arcaden” to the new<br />

festival grounds at the underground<br />

station “Zitadelle”<br />

Spandau, only two stops away.<br />

Providing fun and entertainment<br />

to the visitors on this site were,<br />

among others, the “Nessi”<br />

coaster (Schuder), a dodgem<br />

track (Noack), “Remmi Demmi”<br />

(Janßen), “Breakdance” (Freiwald), kiddie track ride<br />

and another kiddie ride, as well as a number of<br />

sales and games booths, shooting galleries,<br />

Continental pick stands and gastronomic<br />

operations. The official<br />

name of the event was<br />

“Frühlings-Spar-Volksfest”,<br />

or Spring-Savings-Volksfest<br />

– even though it was<br />

referred to as “1-Euro-<br />

Volksfest” by the organizer’s<br />

flyers. Indeed, there<br />

were many special offers –<br />

but not everything was<br />

available for €1 as many a<br />

visitor may well have interpreted<br />

the information in the<br />

advertising. At the “Breakdance” for example, the<br />

fare was really €1 – but only if one bought 10 ride<br />

chips for €10. The same principle applied to the<br />

dodgem track, where the fare was €1 if 5 chips were<br />

purchased, and at the “Remmi Demmi” Funhouse<br />

the entrance fee amounted to €3 for three visits per<br />

person. Really available for €1 were, for example, a<br />

crêpe with sugar, a fried sausage, and a mini<br />

portion of fried chips as well as various drinks. The<br />

tip for saving as much money as possible in the<br />

organiser’s press release said: “Those who want to<br />

save money cleverly simply join up with other Volksfest<br />

visitors and buy the required number of ride<br />

chips at a special price of €1. At the same time, this<br />

encourages communication and helps in making<br />

new contacts.” True, the new venue of the Spring<br />

Festival lacked “customers passing by” as there are<br />

almost only business operations all around, but it<br />

had a good connection to the underground system;<br />

indeed, with the “Zitadelle”, its very own underground<br />

station. At a press conference held already<br />

prior to the event on 19 th March, the organiser Thilo-<br />

Harry Wollenschlaeger handed over a €800-<br />

cheque (the revenues from selling Christmas trees<br />

at the last Spandau “Weihnachtstraum” event) to the<br />

“Stark ohne Gewalt” (Strength without Violence)<br />

initiative.<br />

the Send in Münster<br />

The Frühjahrssend (22 nd to 30 th March) was very<br />

prominently occupied. Apart from the "Traumgenerator”<br />

boasting excellent animations by the<br />

popular and well-known "Cyborg”, there was no<br />

other novelty this time.<br />

In addition to what<br />

was covered in our<br />

preview, Schäfer’s<br />

"Voodoo Jumper” and<br />

the looping swing<br />

from Marquis enhanced<br />

the selection<br />

of large ride attractions.<br />

The Schlossplatz<br />

fairground was<br />

convincingly laid out<br />

with the critical corner<br />

sites being prominently<br />

occupied this<br />

year, and the Ferris<br />

Wheel having been<br />

relocated further towards the centre of the fairground.<br />

Moreover, with a larger number of marketers selling<br />

their goods at the side of the castle this year, this<br />

section made a more unified and generally cosier<br />

impression. Unfortunately, the Topfmarkt had been<br />

reduced to a bare minimum though. After all, the<br />

“miracle cures” that used to be sold at markets can be<br />

found almost everywhere these days, especially on TV<br />

and on the internet. All in all, the Frühjahrssend offered<br />

an appealing layout. Unfortunately, there were insufficient<br />

seating possibilities available outside the<br />

showman attractions; and indeed, small rest areas<br />

would certainly be very well received due to the<br />

increasing average age of visitors. Being able to linger<br />

and relax from time to time might well entice this visitor<br />

group to stay longer and spend more money.<br />

Particularly noticeable was the fact that two regular<br />

participants from the gastronomic sector of many<br />

years standing were no longer present. Indeed,<br />

several showmen have disappeared from the Send<br />

over the last few years. Thanks to the weather, the<br />

participating operators were largely satisfied with their<br />

turnover – some of them faring better and others<br />

worse, as was also the case at all the other events. ■<br />

COMMENT MÜNSTER<br />

Text: Michael Petersen<br />

The Send in Münster refuses to settle down.<br />

Changes have become the order of the day at this<br />

traditional event, and there has been no year without<br />

such changes throughout the duration of the event's<br />

existence. The coming summer's Send as well as<br />

next year’s events will also be rescheduled. It should<br />

be remembered that the Send can look back on a<br />

tradition of more than 1,200 years, and has evolved<br />

into a Volksfest event known nationwide during the<br />

course of the centuries. The Send is held on the<br />

Schlossplatz three times a year; in spring, summer,<br />

and in autumn.<br />

The duration of the event has always been five days,<br />

from Thursday to Monday; a fixture known to the<br />

locals and guests from near and far. But then the<br />

spring Send was extended from 5 to 9 days, no<br />

longer beginning on Thursday but on Saturday. With<br />

the extension to 9 days, and thus 2 weekends, the<br />

32


organisers hoped to be able to contract attractive<br />

large rides. Moreover, the extended duration might<br />

sometimes make up for poor weather. Hopes at least<br />

for large ride attractions have not come to fruition to<br />

this day, however. With the duration of the autumn<br />

Send also extended to nine days in yet another<br />

change last year, the former total of 15 days have<br />

now been increased to 23 opening days. But that is<br />

not all, due to the FIFA World Cup, this year‘s<br />

summer Send has been postponed to July, thereby<br />

overlapping with the Düsseldorf Rheinwiese. Even<br />

though a huge football event is fierce competition for<br />

the showmen, they have to cope with it every two<br />

years all the same. Fan miles and the joint<br />

experience of the World and European Football<br />

Championships are extremely popular – as long as<br />

the German team is still competing in the<br />

FÜRTH<br />

Text & Photos: Helmut Bresler<br />

For the sixth time now, the Fürth<br />

Frühlingsfest (29 th March to 6 th<br />

April) has been staged with a new<br />

concept, but still with the usual<br />

colourful mixture of market<br />

merchants and showmen. At the<br />

end of the 9-day event, the<br />

organiser Eduard Wentzl was<br />

highly satisfied.<br />

“Fantastic weather, a varied supporting programme and a<br />

good list of operators”, was his succinct summary of the<br />

reasons for its success. A prominent landmark was the<br />

“Extrem” propeller, presented under the new management<br />

of Matthias Mölter and very well received in Fürth. An open<br />

shopping Sunday, a Kiddie Day, a daily-changing stage<br />

programme, a laser show, as well as the now traditional<br />

“tractor meet” on the last opening Sunday attracted the<br />

public in droves. In appropriate spring temperatures,<br />

everything went well. It was a successful start. ■<br />

“Happy Butterfly” from Eschenbacher<br />

and “Extrem” from Mölter, the beautiful<br />

flowers as a welcome at the entrance, a Lanz<br />

tractor, and showman Matthias Mölter (m.) with<br />

the municipal organisers of the Michaeliskärwa,<br />

André Hollitzer (r.) and Thomas Oberndorfer<br />

tournament. But that is not nearly all, the spring Send<br />

2015 is also rescheduled to be held only on the<br />

second weekend after Easter, when the Easter<br />

festivals in Cologne and Aachen also occur. Does<br />

this postponement make sense? There may well be<br />

hope for better and warmer weather, but the weather<br />

can also be not too 'fairground friendly' after Easter.<br />

With the spring Send being held late, next year’s<br />

summer Send will be postponed until July.<br />

The Münster Send events should soon be back to<br />

regular schedules. What do the organisers really<br />

want? Is it a long spring Send with a late beginning<br />

and a long autumn Send and no summer Send, or<br />

three Send events with new schedules? One can<br />

only hope that the fair tradition in Münster will not be<br />

shipwrecked due to permanently changing<br />

schedules.<br />

SOLINGEN<br />

Text & Photo: Michael Petersen<br />

After snow, freezing<br />

temperatures and ice last<br />

year, the Solingen residents<br />

were able to celebrate<br />

a proper spring fair<br />

in beautiful weather from<br />

28 th March to 6 th April this<br />

year. Due to pleasant<br />

temperatures, visitor numbers<br />

noticeably increased<br />

in comparison to last year,<br />

bringing the showmen<br />

good financial results. The<br />

classic circuit course on the<br />

fairground was once again<br />

prominently occupied and<br />

appealingly laid out.<br />

Relocating a number of ride<br />

attractions resulted in a new<br />

overall image. The “Ghost<br />

Hotel” fitted perfectly into<br />

the narrow top end site, and<br />

the new sites of the “Breakdance”<br />

and the “Rainbow”<br />

were also well chosen.<br />

Somewhat unfavourable<br />

was the location of the<br />

“Fluch der Piraten” round<br />

ride (Polyp) as a mere side<br />

stall, though. Moreover, this<br />

ride was presented completely<br />

“naked” and without<br />

any decoration elements,<br />

as the operator had not<br />

been able to install these<br />

components after an entire<br />

renovation. In addition to<br />

the two weekends, the<br />

Family Day was also a<br />

particularly strong turnover<br />

day.<br />

NOSTALGIA<br />

Pascal Raviol’s<br />

historic Raupenbahn is<br />

currently being restored<br />

Unusual measures are currently<br />

being taken by Pascal Raviol to<br />

save a historic ride from being<br />

scrapped. After already personally<br />

investing €45,000 into this<br />

project, this initial fund is now<br />

considerably diminished; about<br />

€20,000 more is still required for<br />

completion of the restoration,<br />

and is now to be raised by the socalled<br />

“Crowd-funding” technique.<br />

Project Caterpillar Ride<br />

A restorer is to reveal<br />

again the paintings’ original<br />

visual glory<br />

Crowd-funding is a method of raising funds for<br />

projects, products or business ideas. The<br />

money comes from a large number of people,<br />

generally internet users, as crowd-funding is<br />

mostly to be found on the World Wide Web. Many<br />

start-up companies have been founded in this<br />

way, some of them to later become multi-million-<br />

Euro outfits. Pascal Raviol’s “Caterpillar Ride”<br />

project may now well be the first of its kind in the<br />

showman sector, although it is not about making<br />

profit, but about raising a relatively small<br />

amount to preserve a historic ride for coming<br />

generations. And as the initiator cannot thank<br />

the supporters with shares or dividends, they get<br />

“things you cannot buy” as a way of saying thank<br />

you such as, for example, five free rides on the<br />

Caterpillar ride for a contribution of €10 to €20.<br />

€100 entitles contributors to free use of the ride<br />

for a lifetime, as long as the ride is operational<br />

and under Raviol’s ownership, and €500 gets<br />

those concerned a priceless experience;<br />

namely spending a whole weekend at the Caterpillar’s<br />

venue, including accommodation in a<br />

caravan, free rides on the Caterpillar, a look<br />

behind the scenes and, on request, also helping<br />

during build-up and dismantling, as well as<br />

getting a lift on the traction unit. Pascal Raviol<br />

has come up with many other “things, you cannot<br />

buy”, all of them listed on the project website<br />

(see box).<br />

But, what happens with the supporters’ money?<br />

It allows for further restoration of the Caterpillar<br />

ride built in 1946 by the Cologne ride manufacturer<br />

Achtendong, boasting a special diameter<br />

of only 10 metres. Despite this “small” size,<br />

the ride is no kiddie Caterpillar – also adults may<br />

take a ride. Pascal Raviol and his team do the<br />

major part of the restorations – but certain jobs<br />

have to be carried out by craft enterprises or<br />

specialists due to lack of tools or know how. By<br />

the way, the wooden baggage van belonging to<br />

the ride is currently also being renovated. In any<br />

case, the ride’s original winter outfit is to be<br />

preserved so that it may well be presented also<br />

at a Christmas Market.<br />

(France) from late November<br />

2013 to early January 2014, was<br />

a huge roofed-over fairground<br />

boasting many attractions with<br />

colourful circus touches.<br />

visitors. In the end, they even<br />

succeeded in providing this<br />

symbiosis of fair event and<br />

not in the least “kitschy”, overall<br />

image. The offering was well<br />

suited to children in particular,<br />

KIDDIE CONSTRUCTIONS<br />

A magnificent symbiosis of the<br />

fairground and circus worlds:<br />

“Le Monde Merveilleux”<br />

shows were presented on the stage inside the –<br />

naturally heated – event tent in Metz. Even at the<br />

entrance, the younger and older visitors were<br />

heartily welcomed by a clown. At the paybox<br />

visitors could choose between several options.<br />

There was scaled entrance fees; the cheapest<br />

price being €9 per child accompanied by an<br />

adult for unlimited use at all attractions. Further<br />

offers (from €14 to €20) included food/table<br />

reservation in the gastro section, a souvenir,<br />

sweets and several surprises additionally.<br />

Actually, the appearance in Metz was a test run<br />

for this new concept, which can not only be presented<br />

as a single attraction just as well as a<br />

circus, but also as a feature of a major event, such<br />

as a Christmas Market for example. The<br />

operators were highly satisfied with the visitor<br />

attendance at the première in Metz.<br />

MODEL CONSTRUCTION<br />

H0-scale: the GDR<br />

fairground from Rico Mäcke<br />

from Chemnitz<br />

Nowadays, 1:87-scale fairground<br />

models and dioramas are sometimes<br />

built to a quality scarcely<br />

conceivable not so many years<br />

ago. Constructed down to the<br />

smallest detail and with true-tooriginal<br />

movement sequences<br />

and lighting effects precisely<br />

reproduced, these superlative<br />

models evidence their builders’<br />

extraordinary handicraft skills.<br />

However, the premier league of<br />

H0-scale model construction is<br />

reserved for only a couple of<br />

specialists who possess the<br />

required tools and machines.<br />

There is however, also a simpler<br />

version of fairground model<br />

construction that requires considerably<br />

less effort, and such is<br />

the means by which hobby<br />

model builder Rico Mäcke from<br />

Chemnitz (Saxony) built his<br />

small nostalgic fairground.<br />

Text: Rolf Orschel<br />

Photos: Archiv Mäcke<br />

H0-scale Nostalgic Fair<br />

Rico Mäcke is 36 years old and grew up in his<br />

parent's showman business. Even though his<br />

father tours a kiddie ride and a confectionery booth<br />

to this day, Rico Mäcke’s parents wanted their son<br />

to learn a different profession. After graduating from<br />

school, he first trained as a locksmith and later he<br />

was also a qualified machining technician. To this<br />

day, he likes to recall his childhood and youth, as<br />

he was strongly formed by his time spent on the fairgrounds,<br />

which naturally also influenced the<br />

construction of his fairground models. Rico Mäcke<br />

busied himself with fairground model construction,<br />

given that his parents had presented him with a fairground<br />

model kit every Christmas up until a<br />

number of years ago. Having assembled a small<br />

fairground model with a number of rides and<br />

concession stalls, he realized that it did not really<br />

mean much to him. Therefore he decided to build<br />

a model of the miniature fairground of the 1980s<br />

with rides and fairground booths, where he used to<br />

play as a child. That was more than five years ago<br />

– years in which he busied himself with his project<br />

for several hours after work. The 1 m x 40 cm<br />

construction features seven functional rides, a pony<br />

ride and nine concession stalls. All the details of the<br />

model fair were built according to the hobby model<br />

builder’s own memories, old photos and trade<br />

magazines.<br />

A view from the rear<br />

“Everything is to look as<br />

authentic as possible. The<br />

attractions have been placed<br />

close together just as they used<br />

to be back then. Apart from<br />

eleven electric motors, many<br />

Preiser figures and several<br />

reconstructed customary vehicles, I built everything<br />

myself – a truly unique model,” Mäcke<br />

proudly reports. “For building the models I mainly<br />

used wood, cardboard, pins, matches, wire, and<br />

various glues and paints. The pillars of the large<br />

rides were made from pins, and painted cling film<br />

was used as ride tarpaulins. It took four months and<br />

a little skill to build a ride from the wooden components,<br />

cardboard and wire by grinding and<br />

painting them,” says Rico Mäcke. Base plates and<br />

drive systems from the Faller Musik Express model<br />

kit were used for the Matterhorn, the Fahrt ins Blaue<br />

and the Waltzer ride. Moreover, the Faller chain ride<br />

and swing boat were rebuilt as more realistic<br />

examples. Laying out his model, the model builder<br />

also attached much attention to details he recalls<br />

from this childhood. Taking a closer look at the small<br />

nostalgic fairground, one discovers among other<br />

details a candy floss stall, a rotating table wheel, a<br />

long queue in front of the bratwurst stall, a child<br />

Matterhorn, Fahrt ins<br />

Blaue and Waltzer ride<br />

MODEL CONSTRUCTION<br />

Even kiddie rides and<br />

concession stalls have been<br />

built up on the miniature<br />

fairground<br />

Russian Wheel and<br />

Matterhorn<br />

dragging his father to the swing boat, and a group<br />

of happy adolescents at the dice booth. Premium<br />

fair model builders may be reluctant to build fairground<br />

models without conforming to precise exact<br />

scales, but in this case the result certainly justifies<br />

this method. Rico Mäcke did not want to simply<br />

accomplish a prodigious feat in fairground model<br />

construction, but rather just simply to enjoy<br />

tinkering in his free time. His models clearly show<br />

that it was most important for him to keep alive the<br />

memories of the time he experienced on the fairgrounds<br />

as a child.<br />

Portugal's Showmen Demonstrate for their Future<br />

President Albert Ritter in Talks with Colleagues in Lisbon<br />

President Albert Ritter with Portuguese showman<br />

colleagues.<br />

In the middle of March 2014, President Albert<br />

Ritter met up with representatives of<br />

the Portuguese Associação Portuguesa de<br />

Empresas de Diversão (APED) for talks. Discussions<br />

were about the current questions<br />

and problems of colleagues. Portugal has<br />

been experiencing a difficult economic crisis<br />

for years, which naturally also has an effect<br />

on the showman industry. President Albert<br />

Ritter promised the support of the ESU.<br />

Protest for the retention of the Antwerp „Sinksenfoor“<br />

■ Unjustified police brutality against showmen<br />

■ ESU condemns strongly against inappropriate police action<br />

■ In Belgium, as in countless German states,<br />

the fairground tradition is to be wiped out<br />

Showmen demonstrated at the end of March in<br />

Antwerp for the retention of the traditional<br />

"Sinksenfoor" fair. In the process there were<br />

massive excesses on the part of the special police<br />

task force. The Belgian task force exercised<br />

brutal violence against the showmen. Around<br />

40 showmen, among them ESU Vice President<br />

Franck Delforge were violently arrested. The<br />

European Showman Union condemned this<br />

police action strongly and called on all show-<br />

Even before the beginning of the new Volksfest<br />

season, the showmen in Portugal had big problems.<br />

„In particular it's the location fee to the<br />

organiser that makes difficulties“ emphasised<br />

Luís Paulo Fernandes, President of the Portuguese<br />

showman association, to President Ritter.<br />

Fernandes surmised that particularly due to<br />

the economic recession, the communities in<br />

the strongly troubled regions of the country<br />

with their high fees are „milking" the showmen.<br />

Albert Ritter clearly rejected this policy: „We will<br />

not tolerate communities lining their pockets<br />

paid for by our colleagues. We will put up a fight<br />

in the whole of Europe against this political arbitrariness<br />

against the showmen," declared Ritter.<br />

Since over a year Portugal's showmen have<br />

been protesting for better conditions; lastly on<br />

the 6th March in front of the Transport Ministry<br />

in Lisbon. The colleagues are demanding a harmonisation<br />

of the traffic rules and the sinking or<br />

Portugal's Showman President Luís Paulo Fernandes<br />

(right) during talks with EU Parliament President<br />

Martin Schulz.<br />

men in Europe for solidarity with our Belgian<br />

colleagues.<br />

Wednesday 26th March 2014: in the early morning<br />

hours a couple of hundred showmen demonstrated<br />

with their vehicles on the streets in the direction<br />

of Antwerp. With their action they were protesting<br />

about the court decision that the traditional „Sinksenfoor"<br />

fair is to take place outside of the city in<br />

the future.<br />

Unity give strength! Demonstration of showmen<br />

exemption for example of toll fees and road taxes.<br />

Additionally, they require less bureaucracy<br />

and a uniform authorisation.<br />

The drastic steps in saving and new tax laws<br />

lead in Portugal not only to less turnover but also<br />

to endangered employment and with that<br />

the existence of the Volksfests in the long term.<br />

The Portuguese government and political representatives<br />

have repeatedly announced their<br />

willingness to help the showmen in the past,<br />

without any results worthy of mention to date.<br />

As a result the Portuguese showmen will continue<br />

to protest.<br />

President Fernandes thanked President Ritter in<br />

the name of all Portuguese showmen for his<br />

support and the solidarity of the European<br />

Showman Association.<br />

Kirmes with Great Tradition<br />

The „Sinksenfoor", that had its regular place in<br />

the historic harbour area of Antwerp, looks back<br />

at a centuries old tradition. With one million<br />

visitors annually, it is one of the largest Volksfests<br />

in Belgium, and offers more than 150<br />

showmen an income. However to real estate investors,<br />

the traditional event has been a thorn<br />

in their side for a long time. For this reason they<br />

initiated a court case due to noise pollution. The<br />

real background: the city section where the<br />

event takes place has developed into an attractive<br />

residential area with expensive shops, restaurants<br />

and art galleries, and the real estate<br />

prices are accordingly high. The festival area will<br />

apparently be used for real estate projects in the<br />

future, in order to increase the prices of the<br />

shops, houses, and apartments. The "Sinksenfoor"<br />

has been allocated an earlier station area<br />

in the city suburb of Borgerhout, with an approval<br />

for use for only three years.<br />

Military action against showman protest?<br />

The new location is however not acceptable for<br />

the showmen. And so they took to the streets<br />

at the end of March. During their protest against<br />

the moving of the „Sinksenfoor" the showmen<br />

were inappropriately and massively attacked<br />

by the police. There were brutal assaults and arrests<br />

by the officers of a special task force. And it<br />

will get even worse. Cathy Berx, Governor of the<br />

Antwerp province is of the opinion that her ad-<br />

The Sinksenfoor is one of the largest Volksfests<br />

in Belgium.<br />

ministration and the city of Antwerp could well<br />

call on the military for help in the case of renewed<br />

protests and street blockades on the part of<br />

the showmen. This sort of action has been approved<br />

for some time by the Belgian Defence<br />

and Interior Ministries, according to Berx.<br />

„Police Operation is a Breach of Democratic<br />

Rights"<br />

The European Showman Union has strongly<br />

criticized the inappropriate police assault and<br />

also the possible deployment of the military<br />

against the showmen. „Our solidarity and recognition<br />

to the Belgian showmen who have<br />

demonstrated for the protection of the fair in<br />

Antwerp. The police action against our colleagues<br />

is a breach of all democratic rights within<br />

the European Union. An additional deploy-<br />

ment of the military is not acceptable. It can't be<br />

true that the economic ambitions of a few real<br />

estate speculators are more important than the<br />

interested hundreds of thousands of fairground<br />

fans" said Albert Ritter. He also appealed<br />

to the Lord Mayor and the Antwerp City<br />

Council: „It's not only about the employment of<br />

many showmen that is at stake, but also the future<br />

of the cultural possession of the Volksfest in<br />

the city of Antwerp. We showmen will not allow<br />

our democratic right of the freedom of expression<br />

to be taken by pepper spray and policetruncheons.<br />

Unity gives strength!" ■<br />

The new Launch<br />

Coaster is located directly<br />

at the entrance to Vialand<br />

and is noticeable from afar<br />

The Turkish Prime Minister<br />

Erdogan may well restrict the<br />

freedom of the press, disable<br />

Twitter, forbid YouTube, and he<br />

can answer peaceful protests<br />

with a massive show of the authority<br />

of the state, and yes he can<br />

maybe even re-implement the<br />

God state, and in his own<br />

interest not prevent corruption.<br />

But there is one thing that he<br />

doesn't do, and that's to forbid<br />

fun for the Turkish population!<br />

Vialand – an Update<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Frank Lanfer<br />

The irrepressible urge for entertainment is not<br />

only expressed by the pulsating night lift in<br />

Istanbul and elsewhere, but also in the many new<br />

park projects in the whole of Turkey. There's no<br />

other country apart from Asia that currently has so<br />

many theme parks coming into being as Turkey<br />

(see KPR 4/2014). The first large project of this<br />

type was the Vialand Tema <strong>Park</strong> that opened on<br />

the 29 th May 2013 which is a part of the total project<br />

called Vialand and which includes an outdoor<br />

shopping mall that arose on an Istanbul hill (see<br />

KPR 8/2013). The première took place a year<br />

ago, however without both main attractions, a<br />

Launch Coaster and a large Darkride. There are<br />

many reasons for this situation, however in the<br />

end, it couldn't have been better – at least in the<br />

opinion of Vialand – that the next large project in<br />

the 15 million metropolis, The Mall of Istanbul<br />

including a large indoor theme park, is planned<br />

to open in May.<br />

In the case of the Launch Coaster, the cause of<br />

delay was due to the supports: to start with, the<br />

location of the attraction was changed at short<br />

notice, moved from the lower park level to the<br />

geographically seen almost highest position.<br />

Apart from the fact that it was a future-orientated<br />

idea and that the coaster now can be seen from<br />

far away bringing attention to the park, new calculations<br />

for the supports of the already completed<br />

tracks were necessary. Additionally the park<br />

didn't want them completed by Intamin, but by a<br />

large Turkish steel company – the wrong decision<br />

as it very soon turned out to be. Despite a number<br />

of improvements, the supports remained unusable<br />

and were finally scrapped. It was first in<br />

April 2013 that Intamin was contracted.<br />

Punctually to the start of the season on the 1 st April<br />

2014 everything was finally ready: "Nefeskesen",<br />

Turkey's first large coaster could open! And only<br />

a few days earlier we were able to test the master<br />

work of modern engineering extensively.<br />

After we had taken our place in the 16-seat train<br />

and locked the generous lap bar, we rolled out of<br />

the station. A six metres drop brought produced<br />

the first butterflies in the stomach, and transported<br />

us directly to the 100 metres straight acceleration<br />

course. The 3,200 kW LSM took hold<br />

swiftly and sped us in only as few seconds to 110<br />

kilometres per hour. Following the intensive start<br />

we were rammed vertically into the Turkish spring<br />

skies, only to go into a not less than 180° intensive<br />

turnaround, the so-called "Top Hat" element,<br />

and only 40 metres further along, to then plummet<br />

nearly vertically towards the ground. 45 metres<br />

along below, a small tunnel swallowed us before<br />

absolving a camelback with good and proper airtime.<br />

An Immelmann that we travelled to from underneath<br />

discharged us upside down towards the<br />

steep slope where a 122° inclined Stengel-Dive<br />

awaited us immediately. The following turnaround<br />

let us win quite a few metres height, only to turn<br />

us upside down again in the lofty heights. When<br />

passing the Heartline-Roll (also called Inline-<br />

Twist) we experienced some hang-time, before<br />

the magnetic brakes take a hold on the downwards<br />

leading straight section towards the station,<br />

starting the final brakes. Unfortunately – we<br />

actually wanted to say – as the kinetic energy lets<br />

in a number of spectacular elements. However<br />

the sequence of the ride figures is speedy and<br />

A clear and furious track<br />

course identifies "Nefeskesen"<br />

The Top Hast element from<br />

another perspective<br />

more than unusual: no trimbrakes, no recuperating<br />

time or breathing space. "Nefeskesen", translated<br />

meaning "Breath Taker", lives up to its name!<br />

Pumped full with endorphins we rolled back into<br />

the station after 50 seconds without having the<br />

feeling that it should have continued – apparently<br />

it's not always all about length. "Nefeskesen" offers<br />

– and who would have thought it! – simply the<br />

best that a coaster can offer at the moment. An<br />

absolute must for all coaster fans!<br />

Fatih’in Ruyasi<br />

The second novelty is of a completely different<br />

nature but no less interesting, and will go into operation<br />

at the latest on the 29 th May 2014, the day<br />

of the conquest of Istanbul by the Ottomans in<br />

1453: the gigantic Darkride "Fatih’in Ruyasi"<br />

(Fatih's Dream). We had an exclusive insight into<br />

the impressive indoor attraction. A total ground<br />

area of almost 4,000 m 2 tells the story of Fatih The<br />

Conqueror, which can be educationally experienced:<br />

This ride is about a school boy named<br />

Fatih having a historical dream that every Turkish<br />

child knows. Here the Ottomans forged their<br />

weapons and swords, in order to conquer the<br />

mediaeval Byzantine Empire. As the first attempt<br />

was not successful, Fatih the Conqueror had his<br />

ships transported over the mountains to attack<br />

from the Marmara Sea side. This time he was successful<br />

and could move into Istanbul in triumph.<br />

In addition to the preview-room and the station<br />

48


area, eight scenes are travelled through, which<br />

are partly very impressive in their equipment and<br />

size, for example the sea battle scene with a 12<br />

metres and a 14 metres long ship. However they<br />

are all richly detailed, and even during repeat<br />

rides there are always new figures and gimmicks<br />

to discover. Among them are cannons, waterfalls,<br />

special effects and 119 life-sized Animatronics<br />

from Heimotion. A Tow Boat Ride from Intamin was<br />

chosen as transport system.<br />

Further Innovations<br />

With 460,000 park guests in the first year of operation,<br />

the numbers are behind expectations. In<br />

the medium-term, four million guests are targeted<br />

annually with an almost all-year-round opening,<br />

whereas the park was only open for five months<br />

in the past year.<br />

<strong>Park</strong> Operations Manager Cem Tuna: "We are<br />

very confident that we can increase the visitor<br />

numbers significantly already this year. We have<br />

already sold 62,000 tickets by advance bookings."<br />

No wonder then that due to both large attractions<br />

Vialand will without a doubt be properly<br />

recognised by the population for the first time,<br />

and not only optically.<br />

And more investment has also been made in entertainment:<br />

the character of a family park is<br />

strengthened by street shows, live acts and<br />

gimmicks, expanding the fun factor. New and<br />

elaborate ways and designs provide for a first<br />

class park ambience. A new pantomime show<br />

and a new 4D-film will be offered in the 4Dcinema.<br />

And last but not least there will be more<br />

characters added in addition to the park mascot<br />

"Pilot Gaga", for which the licence has been purchased<br />

from Spongebob Squarepants and Dora<br />

the Explorer. Cem Tuna, who was earlier <strong>Park</strong> Operations<br />

Manager at Australia's Dreamworld not<br />

only thinks about the increase of visitor numbers:<br />

"We will also be installing more transportable lotteries<br />

or draws in order to increase the park<br />

turnover. At Dreamworld, around one-third of the<br />

total turnover was generated by all types of competitions!"<br />

A small downer though: The "Kong<br />

Kong" from Huss Rides has to take a break for a<br />

season. Cem Tuna: "Although the ride is fully intact,<br />

we have the problem of ground subsidence<br />

in the earlier quarry area, and must lay a new<br />

foundation where our King Kong will then be<br />

placed."<br />

Interview with Tolga Alisoglu<br />

Mr Alisoglu, as General Manager you are<br />

not only responsible for the theme park, but for<br />

the whole of Vialand. Would the shopping mall<br />

be possible without the theme park?<br />

Absolutely not! The theme park is the strawberry<br />

on the cake. This way we lift ourselves above<br />

other large shopping malls in Istanbul, and with<br />

that have a unique selling point. We had a total of<br />

8.5 million visitors, and even if only a few of them<br />

visited the park, their reason to visit is clearly stated<br />

as an addition to the premium mall. The total<br />

turnover in the last fiscal year was 30 million Euro.<br />

In only a few weeks the Mall of Istanbul will<br />

open with similar contents. How do you estimate<br />

the competitive situation? Are you<br />

worried?<br />

Not really. At most we anticipate a very shortterm<br />

impact due to the novelty effect. This year<br />

we estimate a total visitor number of 30 million, of<br />

which 1.2 million will also visit the theme park. Vialand<br />

with its outdoor activities is not comparable<br />

to an indoor theme park and an indoor shopping<br />

mall. Whilst the Mall Of Istanbul is only limitedly<br />

extendable and must be convincing alone<br />

50


through its design, we can on the other hand still<br />

expand in the future.<br />

In two years another outdoor park will be<br />

opening, with its General Manager Mehmet<br />

Emec being Vialand's earlier General Manager.<br />

Do you see a serious competitor in the project<br />

called Tema Istanbul?<br />

For a start it's a completely different concept<br />

as the theme park there is occupied with the<br />

marketing of residential properties, and not retail<br />

like us. But in both cases the theme park is the<br />

strawberry on the cake. Therefore we are of the<br />

opinion that the competition animates rather than<br />

hinders. Each park calls attention to the other, and<br />

each tourist in all probability will visit the other as<br />

well. A big plus point for us is that we are close to<br />

downtown, while the Tema Istanbul property is<br />

located far outside, near the Ataturk airport. Additionally<br />

we are well equipped: in 2016, which is<br />

the planned opening year for Tema Istanbul, we<br />

will be realizing a large coaster.<br />

At the moment, probably not. The area mentioned<br />

is unfortunately not useable without soil<br />

and foundation engineering as we have the problem<br />

of landslip in the earlier surface mining area.<br />

There are rumours that a Vialand <strong>Park</strong> will<br />

be erected in Pakistan. Is this true?<br />

Yes, we have had a meeting with Pakistan's<br />

Premier Minister Nawaz Sharif, who would be<br />

glad to erect a theme park. Due to our experience<br />

we would support him in construction and operation.<br />

Nevertheless the project will naturally be<br />

very different with other attractions and fitting to<br />

the local market and local conditions. By the way,<br />

most probably there will be a further Vialand in<br />

Turkey at a different location.<br />

■<br />

The way the planned extension in 2016 will<br />

look: a coaster will be located in the exterior area<br />

General Manager Tolga<br />

Alisoglu (left) and Cem Tuna<br />

Are there other novelties planned?<br />

Yes, already in June we will be opening our<br />

Vialand-Hotel, and we also have the option to reerect<br />

a cable railway from the lower area of the<br />

park, to the entrance area.<br />

And what is the situation with a water<br />

park? For example in the lower area that once<br />

was planned as an active park section, but is<br />

completely unused until now?<br />

COASTER<br />

The intensive pretzel<br />

element has been built into<br />

a track layout on a Wing<br />

Coaster for the first time<br />

Only three years after the opening<br />

of Germany's first Dive<br />

Coaster "Krake" from B&M,<br />

another B&M coaster has moved<br />

into Heide-<strong>Park</strong>: Germany's first<br />

Wing Coaster.<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Flug der Dämonen<br />

The entrance and the<br />

station building<br />

The newly realized demon-theming has been<br />

limited to two Transylvanian figures in the outside<br />

area, and the design of the five metres wide<br />

trains. Apart from that, the beautiful building<br />

ensemble has been put to use, which the earlier<br />

owner of Heide-<strong>Park</strong> had once erected for his<br />

second water attraction.<br />

At that time, during the four-year building phase,<br />

there was not only an almost 30 metres high hill<br />

raised for the attraction that would found the later<br />

Swiss theme area, but also a massive station and<br />

adjoining buildings built for the 23 metres high and<br />

575 metres long "Wildwasserbahn II" built by<br />

Schwarzkopf and API (Amusement <strong>Park</strong> Industrie),<br />

which Hans-Jürgen Tiemann had purchased as a<br />

used construction from the closed Eulenspiegel-<br />

<strong>Park</strong> near Hannover and re-opened in 1990 in his<br />

Heide-<strong>Park</strong>.<br />

52


Existing Theming<br />

And it appears that his farm, castle ruins, defence<br />

walls and mines were ideal for the stereotypical picture<br />

of Dracula and his consortium. Since 2012 this<br />

area – together with the Gyro Drop Tower "Scream"<br />

and the "Schweizer Bobbahn" – have been transformed<br />

into the new theme land "Transilvania", and<br />

in the process the over 20 years old and unusually<br />

high quality buildings for a theme park have served<br />

their purpose well. The highlight: a complete and<br />

qualitative theming was already available for the<br />

new coaster without added costs! The British<br />

owner, the Merlin Entertainments Group, simply<br />

couldn't let the opportunity slip by and gave the<br />

green light for the new project only three years after<br />

the opening of the Dive Coaster "Krake".<br />

This deal was contrived by Heide-<strong>Park</strong>'s earlier<br />

park manager Hannes Mairinger, who had<br />

dedicatedly led the North German park for 12<br />

years, but had to leave the company in 2013: "A<br />

company such as Merlin doesn't give away anything,<br />

and naturally wants to maximize its profit. But<br />

there is an annual total budget available to parks<br />

belonging to this group. We were convincing with<br />

our concept and qualified for a new coaster." But<br />

why was one of the water attractions sacrificed for<br />

the new attraction? Mairinger: "This water ride was<br />

Heide-<strong>Park</strong> remains true to<br />

its new coaster as well, and<br />

affords its visitors many views<br />

of the progress of the coaster –<br />

a feast for the eyes of all park<br />

guests<br />

very popular in the park, but could only continue to<br />

operate at huge expense. We therefore removed it<br />

for this reason and retained the older one from Mack<br />

Rides. Additionally the location was ideal for the<br />

new coaster." And why should it be a Wing Coaster?<br />

"It has great advantages to be a part of a park<br />

group. Immediately after the opening of 'Raptor' at<br />

Gardaland in 2011 it was obvious to me that we<br />

have to have such a coaster at Heide-<strong>Park</strong> as well!"<br />

revealed Mairinger enthusiastically.<br />

Early Completion<br />

And so it came about in spring 2014 that the new<br />

coaster at Heide-<strong>Park</strong>, the first Wing Coaster in<br />

Germany could go into operation – and punctually<br />

at that, thanks to the almost overall unusually mild<br />

winter in Europe this year. So there's no reason for<br />

any late openings in 2014 due to a heavy winter in<br />

one or the other park, which is the usual excuse in<br />

the branch. And in the case of Heide-<strong>Park</strong>, the early<br />

completion was used for a demonic-offer to all fans,<br />

who could book a hotel stay including a tour of the<br />

technology and take exclusive ride time on the new<br />

coaster two weeks before the park opening, and<br />

before the official park and coaster opening took<br />

place on the 29 th March with the obligatory superstars.<br />

In the case of "Flug der Dämonen" one can search<br />

for the characteristic "near misses" in vain. And<br />

whether or not the missing near collision elements<br />

can be rated as negative is purely a matter of taste.<br />

Most probably they would have given the complete<br />

experience an additional kick, but even without, it<br />

can already be revealed that the track course alone<br />

is very convincing.<br />

54


Unfortunately only guests from 10 years of age and<br />

a height of between 140 and 195 centimetres are<br />

allowed on the ride. The attraction initially leads<br />

through a long and dark tunnel and ends in three<br />

successively activated zigzag-waiting areas, which<br />

are located under the track course, and sweeten<br />

the waiting time a little with a view to the pending<br />

flight adventure. It's only then that the path leads to<br />

the newly erected station building.<br />

Before entering the station we must decide on<br />

which side of the coaster we want to take our place,<br />

as there's a huge difference if wanting to experience<br />

the first drop: on the left side we summersault<br />

180° under the track directly after climbing the lift<br />

to drop towards the ground, and on the right side<br />

we are ripped away over the track in a speedy turn,<br />

to immediately also turn head over at almost 100<br />

kilometres per hour, dropping towards the ground.<br />

Both sides have something in common: the socalled<br />

"Dive Drop" – comprising of a half Inline Twist<br />

and a half Looping – offering an intensive and<br />

breathtaking experience in all seats! The following<br />

Camelback presents us with intensive airtime<br />

before we cross over the merchandising shop<br />

where there are almost 50 different articles for sale.<br />

However there's naturally no time to go shopping<br />

because we are immediately pulled upwards in a<br />

huge Immelmann and stand on our heads for the<br />

second time. Instantly we enter the Revolution-turn,<br />

before we increase speed after a high three-quarter<br />

curve and travel into a pretzel type of element,<br />

which is keeping two intensive inversions ready for<br />

us. As successful finale we travel through a 90°<br />

inclined track section that leads into a 180° curve,<br />

before we enter the station again with the final<br />

brakes.<br />

A view from the other side<br />

of the park lake's shore<br />

Extremly Wide Trains<br />

The outside seats offer a more intensive ride experience<br />

than the suspended inside seats due to<br />

the Wing Coaster's longer lever arms and the resulting<br />

big dynamics spectrum. For the same reason<br />

however there are small uneven areas in the<br />

track under the outside seats in order to feel multiple<br />

power – after all the Heartline for all outside<br />

seats is circa two metres away from the ideal line.<br />

But even the usual quality from B&M, which is also<br />

plentiful here, can't do too much aligning. On the<br />

whole, the ride is relatively comfortable despite the<br />

immense size of the trains, and apart from the<br />

pothole shortly before the finale.<br />

World Première with Pretzel Element<br />

The new "Flug der Dämonen" was the "park baby" of<br />

the exited park manager, who in the meantime is self<br />

employed and counsels theme park and tourist<br />

branch companies (Mairinger Consulting GmbH).<br />

We wanted to know if he has already ridden his Wing<br />

Coaster. "No" laughed Hannes Mairinger, "since my<br />

departure in January 2013, I have never again entered<br />

Heide-<strong>Park</strong>. I would have loved to have tested<br />

the coaster, but at the moment that's not possible.<br />

There are simply too many emotions involved."<br />

We couldn't give any comforting words though, because<br />

a flight with Germany's coaster demons is<br />

simply too spectacular. In addition, Heide-<strong>Park</strong>'s<br />

new addition has the best and most exciting track<br />

layout on a B&M Wing Coaster throughout Europe –<br />

also thanks to the very first realized pretzel element<br />

worldwide on this coaster type.<br />

Grandiose views of<br />

"Chiapas" in the Mexican<br />

theme area of<br />

Phantasialand<br />

Phantasialand has managed to<br />

build a so-called "state of the<br />

art" ride in all respects with its<br />

new water attraction "Chiapas"!<br />

Even the rather critical theme<br />

park scene on occasions is in<br />

raptures about this new world<br />

novelty that opened one year<br />

later than planned!<br />

Text & Photos: Wolfgang Payer<br />

It's just logical that water<br />

plays the main part in a water<br />

attraction – actively as well as<br />

creatively<br />

Chiapas<br />

Phantasialand had invited over 200 theme park<br />

fans to a pre-opening-event on the 30 th March,<br />

two days before season begin, in order to test the<br />

new attraction. Who other than the fans who had<br />

already ridden similar attractions all over the world<br />

could put the attraction through its paces, thought<br />

Phantasialand. Much to the disappointment of the<br />

park there are also fans who still have a whinge at<br />

a high level, but for once all were in agreement:<br />

Phantasialand had built the most modern and impressive<br />

construction in the Log Flume category.<br />

Construction time was delayed by around 30<br />

months, in order to implement Phantasialand's<br />

most expensive project in its history.<br />

The cooperation with Intamin was very good, emphasised<br />

the park. Phantasialand had searched<br />

for a partner that was flexible and able to address<br />

major challenges. The development was worked<br />

on together, and almost all structural elements are<br />

prototypes. The biggest technical innovation is the<br />

switch-point system with which the boats are<br />

moved from one canal to the other. To this end<br />

Intamin had built a water basin in which the<br />

parallel points were tested for six months. Coaster<br />

technology was also used, for example the<br />

restraint system, the magnetic brakes and the<br />

double chain lift.<br />

58


The new attraction has been integrated into the<br />

Mexican theme area, and is, as in the meantime<br />

usual for Phantasialand, very detailed and beautifully<br />

set in the scene. The entrance area to the station<br />

is very varied in its decoration, and is divided<br />

into different sections. The station has been hidden<br />

in the attraction's rock massif. The track course<br />

travels over six levels including the station, and<br />

begins with a right curve to the first almost 15 metres<br />

high lift. This is followed by a short straight<br />

stretch that leads to the first relatively open cave.<br />

Here the boats travel through a large right curve<br />

to an almost ten metres drop that once again leads<br />

into the open. The journey continues in the canal<br />

past a waterfall and into a second cave where both<br />

points are situated, which turn the boats to the next<br />

section. A richly curved passage is travelled<br />

through backwards, passing also smaller caves.<br />

The next stage leads into an indoor area where a<br />

merry party atmosphere is achieved by way of<br />

varied lighting technology and a large animatronics<br />

figure. After leaving the indoor area, a<br />

ten metres deep reverse drop follows. Finally the<br />

boats stop in a cave and are moved sideward by<br />

way of a parallel switch. The second lift hill is<br />

climbed in a forward position and is followed by<br />

curves along a Maya pyramid. For the third and<br />

last time the ride travels upwards – here also unusually<br />

fast for a water ride. A left curve follows<br />

leading into the lofty heights where passengers<br />

have a great view of the Mexican theme area.<br />

The final drop<br />

seen from two completely<br />

different locations<br />

Lower Photo Row: Onride<br />

The final drop is, according to the passengers, a<br />

little oppressive, but before they can think about<br />

it, it's downwards on the 53° world's steepest drop<br />

on a "traditional" water attraction. However the 15<br />

metres high element is even more dramatic, as it<br />

has been incorporated into the artificial rock<br />

massif as a narrow gorge. At the deepest point of<br />

the drop, the boats travel under a bridge and shoot<br />

further along over a relatively large camelback<br />

and with a little airtime, into the final splash zone.<br />

The wet factor is not too high and family friendly.<br />

A large right curve leads back to the station area.<br />

The ride is also surprising even apart from all other<br />

effects with its extreme smoothness over the<br />

camelback. Ride duration is circa six minutes and<br />

is supported by an especially composed soundtrack.<br />

The topography of the construction with its<br />

winding channel makes unusual visual angles<br />

possible during the ride. There has been a small<br />

circular route made for viewers that gives great<br />

insights into the attraction. The two old water<br />

attractions that were demolished in November<br />

2011 would have had a capacity of 1,800 passengers<br />

per hour together. With "Chiapas", the<br />

hourly capacity could be increased to 1,800 alone.<br />

This capacity is attained with 29 boats, each with<br />

six individual seats, one behind the other.<br />

"Chiapas" can be ridden by passengers with a<br />

height from 1.2 metres.<br />

The complete Mexican area is now consistent.<br />

Already when entering this area, visitors feel integrated<br />

into the scene, and the atmosphere of the<br />

Mexican water attraction. The so-called eye<br />

catcher of "Chiapas" is the many roaring waterfalls,<br />

which thunder down from a considerable<br />

height. The splash zone can be viewed quite well<br />

by visitors from three different sides, amongst<br />

them a restaurant. The almost labyrinth type of<br />

cave system with the winding water canal has<br />

been excellently implemented by Phantasialand.<br />

One can pose the question as to where the park<br />

has hidden the complete ride system, when<br />

remembering the old water constructions on the<br />

cramped area. However Phantasialand has been<br />

60


successful in building a long course and creating<br />

a generous new open area, resulting in the<br />

"Mexico" section looking a lot larger as before,<br />

optically.<br />

The name "Chiapas" derives from a state of the<br />

same name in south-east Mexico, which fascinates<br />

with its diversity and many waterfalls in the<br />

middle of a branched cave system. Maya ruins are<br />

located in Chiapas, and the locals celebrate old<br />

festivals such as the "Los Dias de las Muertos",<br />

glorifying the "Day of the Dead". These festivals are<br />

very high spirited and accompanied by much<br />

music. The symbol of the skull is traditional, and<br />

can be seen everywhere, just as on the water<br />

attraction.<br />

The wish, or alternatively the specifications of<br />

Phantasialand for the new water attraction was<br />

that there would be much variety combined with a<br />

huge fun-factor. Variety has been beautifully created<br />

with the many levels, smoothness and caves.<br />

And the fun-factor, which is generally associated<br />

with the theme water, has been increased by the<br />

Darkride sections, when a party of guests is presented,<br />

according to the example of the Festival<br />

of the Dead.<br />

In an interview with Robert Löffelhardt, the<br />

Manager of Phantasialand explained that it was<br />

due to the permanent lack of space that many<br />

innovations came about. Because of this situation,<br />

exciting attractions have been repeatedly created.<br />

And he knows that the Phantasialand fans<br />

expect Disney quality in the meantime, but the<br />

challenges are gladly accepted. He emphasised<br />

however that Phantasialand does have difficulty in<br />

delivering this Disney quality as it naturally doesn't<br />

have a budget as large as Disney. Added to that,<br />

the park also has to realize its projects in a shorter<br />

building time. Selling experience and emotion is<br />

the target of Phantasialand, said Robert Löffelhardt.<br />

And indeed this has all been achieved with<br />

"Chiapas". Phantasialand has once again proved<br />

that it's not all about the size of the budget, but the<br />

finding of ideas that is important.<br />

RAAPA 2014<br />

The 16 th International RAAPA<br />

EXPO-2014 was held from the<br />

12 th to 14 th March at the All-Russian<br />

Exhibition Centre (VVTs) in<br />

Moscow, which thanks to warm<br />

and sunny weather in Moscow,<br />

made all industry professions<br />

very enthusiastic about the upcoming<br />

park season.<br />

RAAPA<br />

The largest event of the amusement industry in<br />

Russia was organized by the Russian Association<br />

of Amusement <strong>Park</strong>s and Attractions (RAAPA),<br />

and supported by the international umbrella association<br />

IAAPA, and the TSI Company (UK). General<br />

Sponsor was the “PAX” Group of companies, and<br />

for the first time there was a true exhibition edition<br />

of the Kirmes & <strong>Park</strong> Revue, which was printed<br />

directly in Moscow. The event was inaugurated by<br />

RAAPA President, Mr. Vladimir A. Gnezdilov and his<br />

guest Larry Chickola, Vice-president of the Six<br />

Flags Group. 220 exhibiting companies participated<br />

in the exhibition. Among them were 75 foreign<br />

exhibitor companies from 26 countries.<br />

RAAPA Expo 2014 demonstrated the current trends<br />

on the global entertainment market again. In addition<br />

however, arcade complexes were widely presented<br />

at the exhibition, even by those companies<br />

that previously had not specialized in this type of<br />

equipment. Whilst the Bolid Company presented<br />

several options of arcade games for family entertainment<br />

centres, Zapevin's Manufactory introduced<br />

unusual prize machines designed in an<br />

interesting Indian style.<br />

The Eastern European Company built up a whole<br />

cave in the exhibition hall presenting themed decoration<br />

entrances to theme parks and attractions.<br />

Visitors showed a lot of interest in “fog” technology<br />

62


used to project pictures and different subjects in the<br />

air. Great interest was also caused by the themed<br />

entertainment complex “Dark Ride”, which combined<br />

unique decorations, interactive technology,<br />

and virtual effects.<br />

One of the largest exhibitor stands was from Polin<br />

Waterparks & Pool Systems (Turkey) showing a<br />

creative approach in its decoration and content,<br />

with the presentation of innovations in technology<br />

solutions, and water park slides.<br />

This year the number of 5D equipment and virtual<br />

cinemas was slightly reduced. Experts explained<br />

this as a temporary decline of interest from visitors<br />

and operators for this type of entertainment. But the<br />

situation still allowed the introduction of major players<br />

in this field.<br />

Traditionally there were many presentations of kiddie<br />

and family rides. The largest number was from<br />

Italpark and PlaySpace. The largest Ferris Wheels<br />

were promoted by the PAX Group of companies.<br />

The Stroitelnye Attraktsiony Company demonstrated<br />

how to turn an excavator or other construction<br />

machines into an extreme ride.<br />

Major manufacturers of fast foods for parks and<br />

family entertainment centres, such as Dippin' Dots,<br />

Business Russia, Technika +, and Food Service<br />

also participated.<br />

The number of presentations in active leisure<br />

equipment had significantly increased and ranged<br />

from kiddie playgrounds to rope courses. A large<br />

number of interactive<br />

attractions were<br />

introduced such as<br />

an interactive sandbox,<br />

turning a sand<br />

castle construction<br />

into a thrill attraction.<br />

Our special exhibition<br />

edition for RAAPA Expo 2014<br />

RAAPA Expo has always not only been an effective<br />

commercial platform, but is also the answer to many<br />

social themes, among them the importance of increasing<br />

safety of entertainment equipment, and to<br />

develop leisure activity in parks. In this segment<br />

were exhibitors such as the Moscow Palace of Pioneers<br />

on Vorobyovy Gory, and the Moscow State<br />

University of Culture and Arts.<br />

This year's event also offered programmes attended<br />

by nearly 300 professionals, among them the international<br />

conference “City Amusement <strong>Park</strong> of the<br />

21st century as a main place for recreation and entertainment”<br />

and others with themes such as kiddie<br />

centres, the US experience in operation of entertainment<br />

complexes, and personal efficiency of<br />

management in entertainment business. There<br />

were also discussions devoted to virtual attractions,<br />

and the safety of water park operation.<br />

A newly introduced event was the “Business Breakfast”<br />

devoted to the topic “Ideal entertainment business<br />

from the professionals’ point of view”.<br />

Additionally a behind the scenes visit was made to<br />

the "Cosmic" leisure centre. The developers of the<br />

centre – the “Brunswick/KidsPlay” company conducted<br />

an interesting lecture on “Food and beverage<br />

in a family entertainment centre: investors’<br />

headache or joy?”<br />

As usual gold medals were awarded to a number<br />

of exhibitors (from the organiser RAAPA Expo), as<br />

well as the Golden Pony Awards (a joint event<br />

hosted by RAAPA and Facto Edizioni (Italy), each<br />

year.)<br />

Over 5,000 professionals attended the three-day<br />

exhibition. The RAAPA Expo – 2014 was once again<br />

a success with both Russian and foreign experts<br />

unanimously agreeing that the RAAPA Expo these<br />

64


days is the most dynamically<br />

developing amusement industry<br />

exhibition in the<br />

world.<br />

The next RAAPA events are<br />

already planned and will<br />

take place as follows:<br />

PROJECTS<br />

Biblical theme parks<br />

as well as Noah's Ark parks<br />

are often in planning<br />

As every year we once again are<br />

introducing the latest park projects<br />

in our spring issue. New<br />

this time however is the split up<br />

in two parts: in the past April<br />

edition we reported about the<br />

variety of projects in Turkey.<br />

Here we are reporting about<br />

other exciting park projects<br />

around the world, with the exception<br />

of those we have already<br />

reported about last year.<br />

Text:<br />

Frank Lanfer<br />

The park design of Grand<br />

Texas reminds one very much of<br />

the parks from Six Flags Group<br />

New <strong>Park</strong> Projects<br />

Arc Encounter<br />

Biblical park projects have been and are many. No<br />

wonder then that there are many themes that are<br />

known almost all over the world. However until now,<br />

there has only been one realized: the Holy Land Experience<br />

in Orlando, opened in 2001.<br />

Although there are no ride constructions there, the<br />

Christian association, Answers in Genesis, now<br />

wants to erect a theme park, which not only retells<br />

the Old Testament, but also that guests experience<br />

it as a ride experience. On an area of over 300<br />

hectares including an antiquated village, there will<br />

be as highlight a reproduction of Noah's Ark "in<br />

original size", the themed Tower of Babylon, the 10<br />

Egyptian plagues, and even the parting of the Red<br />

Sea. The location of the 120 million Dollar project<br />

has been chosen to be Williamstown, around 80<br />

kilometres south of Cincinnati. The park is to be<br />

financed by donations alone; for example the<br />

"individual mortal" would receive a "lifetime-boarding-pass"<br />

for 2,000 Dollars. Construction will apparently<br />

begin already this year, and the opening is<br />

planned in two years time.<br />

Grand Texas<br />

In the small Texan town of New Caney in Montgomery<br />

County, a new experience world is to come<br />

into being on an area of 260 hectares. It is to contain<br />

a horse centre, a baseball stadium, a shopping<br />

centre, a 16 hectares sized Big River Water <strong>Park</strong>,<br />

and a 28 hectares sized theme park. The last mentioned<br />

will contain seven themed areas, all of which<br />

will be dedicated to the history and culture of the<br />

State of Texas<br />

66


The opening of Grand Texas Theme <strong>Park</strong> & Big<br />

Rivers Water <strong>Park</strong> is planned already for 2015. The<br />

management and operation of the park will be<br />

taken over by Innovative Leisure Partners.<br />

EarthQuest <strong>Park</strong><br />

The Los Angeles located company Contour had<br />

also targeted a property in New Canay in order to<br />

erect a new theme park. However due to the many<br />

restrictions and perhaps also because of the announcement<br />

that another park project, namely the<br />

Grand Texas Theme <strong>Park</strong>, is to be realized there,<br />

the company decided to remain in Montgomery<br />

County, and purchased a 200 hectares property<br />

north of Houston. Chris Brown from Contour, the initiator<br />

of the project:"We want to erect a theme park<br />

a la Disney, because this type of park is completely<br />

missing in Texas." The overall theming will revolve<br />

around dinosaurs, volcanoes, glaciers, and<br />

environmental friendliness. As a result there will not<br />

only be ride attractions, but also educational content<br />

and a zoo.<br />

Awaza Theme & Aquapark<br />

Turkmenistan has a powerful dictator,<br />

a highly complicated bureaucracy,<br />

ludicrous uniforms,<br />

and golden statues. However the<br />

totalitarian state has never had a<br />

theme park until now. And that is<br />

to change very soon, as the newly<br />

founded health resort Awaza<br />

on the Caspian Sea will receive<br />

an experience world as the centre<br />

piece of the resort. In addition<br />

to two hotels, a golf course, an indoor<br />

aqua-park, and the National<br />

Congress Centre, there is also<br />

a 3.5 hectares theme park including Ferris Wheel,<br />

coaster, and other attractions in planning. Themed<br />

subjects are to be international landmarks such as<br />

the Eiffel Tower, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and<br />

world famous castles. With these plans the leaders<br />

in the capital promises national and international<br />

tourists.<br />

Both park areas are<br />

separated by a street: Awaza<br />

Theme <strong>Park</strong> & Aqua <strong>Park</strong><br />

The Earthquest <strong>Park</strong> in<br />

Texas is to be an imposing and<br />

strongly themed water and<br />

edutainment park<br />

67


The popular comic figure<br />

Spirou in the whole of Europe<br />

will have its own theme park<br />

Siam <strong>Park</strong> Gran Canarias<br />

There have been rumours flying about for quite<br />

some time, but now they are confirmed: the Siam<br />

<strong>Park</strong> on Tenerife, which won the European Star<br />

Award as Best Water <strong>Park</strong> in Europe, is to have a<br />

sister-park on one of the neighbouring Canary<br />

Islands, Gran Canarias.<br />

Who or which manufacturer of the water slides will<br />

be, has not yet been decided. Company Vice President<br />

Christoph Kiessling explained: "The decision<br />

has not been made for the respective service suppliers.<br />

What is definite however is that we have already<br />

purchased the appropriate grounds on<br />

southern Gran Canarias with an area of 174,000<br />

m_." In the interim a Siam <strong>Park</strong> project in China was<br />

also in planning, but due to the language barrier the<br />

matter was dropped again, especially after a solution<br />

came about on Gran Canarias. It took almost<br />

two years of negotiation with the private owner, but<br />

it was well worth it according to father, Wolfgang<br />

Kiessling: "The grounds are located in a valley,<br />

which is natural protection against wind. This is a<br />

great advantage for an outdoor water park, as our<br />

visitors will not freeze on the very few not so nice<br />

days."<br />

Around 60 million Euro will be invested in the new<br />

150.000 m 2 sized water park by the Kiessling family,<br />

which is to open in 2016 – so long as the<br />

authorities play their part.<br />

Parc Spirou<br />

The comic world from Spirou and Fantasio will have<br />

its own theme park, which is to open already next<br />

year near the French city of Avignon – at least if it<br />

all goes according to the plans of comic producer<br />

Éditions Dupuis. 14 attractions are planned initially,<br />

and in addition to medial attractions there are<br />

also to be two coasters, one of steel and one of<br />

wood. 500,000 visitors are expected in the first year<br />

of operation.<br />

The Kiessling family will be erecting a second Siam Water<br />

<strong>Park</strong> on these grounds on Gran Canarias<br />

Hennie Van der Most will be erecting a small indoor and<br />

outdoor theme park directly on the edge of Rotterdam's harbour<br />

68


Speelstadt Rotterdam<br />

Twentieth Century Fox World<br />

The Netherlander Hennie Van der Most, operator of<br />

Wunderland Kalkar, wants to erect a small theme<br />

park in the Rotterdam harbour area. The opening is<br />

already planned for 2015, and the narrow elongated<br />

ground area will hold, in addition to a playground,<br />

mostly used attractions, among them a<br />

"Shuttle Loop" from Schwarzkopf (earlier at Toshimaen,<br />

Japan).<br />

Croatia<br />

The first modern theme park in Croatia is apparently<br />

to open in the Croatian city of Belgrade in 2015.<br />

Details are not yet known, however there will be at<br />

the very least one coaster among the ride<br />

constructions.<br />

Vialand Pakistan<br />

A modern theme park is to be erected in the Pakistani<br />

city of Lahore, in order to encourage the<br />

tourist branch and the increase in economic and<br />

trading activities, explained Pakistan's Prime Minister<br />

Nawaz Sharif.<br />

He announced the plans during a meeting with a<br />

delegation of various Turkish firms, among them<br />

also the Manager of Vialand Tolga Alisoglu, the<br />

Construction Director of the Gursoy Group Mustafa<br />

Karaty, and the Manager of Turkish Airlines, Alp<br />

Yavuzeser.<br />

Shahbaz welcomed the cooperation of Vialand for<br />

the theme park project. He stated that the government<br />

of Punjab wishes to profit from the experience<br />

and knowledge that the Turkish firm has in the erection<br />

of theme parks. For this reason a feasibility plan<br />

is being prepared in cooperation with Vialand.<br />

It was first during the laying of the<br />

foundation stone that the name of a<br />

new theme park project was announced,<br />

which will come into being<br />

on Genting Island in Malaysia:<br />

Twentieth Century Fox World.<br />

This will be a mutual project of the<br />

entertainment giant Twentieth Century<br />

Fox Consumer Products and<br />

building contractor Genting<br />

Malaysia, and is planned to be<br />

opened in 2016.<br />

More than 215 million Euro is to be<br />

invested in the just 10 hectares<br />

sized park, in order to offer visitors<br />

an impressive experience presenting<br />

figures and stories from Fox<br />

such as Ice Age, Rio, Predator, and<br />

Night at the Museum.<br />

A mixture of media-based thrill<br />

rides, Darkrides, kiddie ride constructions<br />

and water attractions are<br />

being planned, as well as of course themed shops<br />

and outlets.<br />

"As it will be the first theme park of this type, the<br />

Twentieth Century Fox World will be built in great<br />

style, made up of unique and creative concepts<br />

with more than 25 ride constructions and film<br />

attractions", explained the Chairman and General<br />

Director of Genting Malaysia Company, Tan Sri Lim<br />

Kok Thay.<br />

Vice President of Twentieth Century Fox Consumer<br />

Products, Greg Lombardo, declared that the erection<br />

in Asia is an important step in the global theme<br />

park strategy of Fox, in order to bind the public to<br />

new and exciting ways.<br />

The first Film <strong>Park</strong> worldwide<br />

from Twentieth Century Fox<br />

will come into being in Malaysia<br />

The future Movie<br />

Animation Studios in Malaysia<br />

will be mainly covered over<br />

containing indoor attractions<br />

The 8City is a new harbour<br />

city together with theme park,<br />

hotels, and casinos<br />

MAPS<br />

The Australian Sanderson Group had searched for<br />

a new investment possibility and found it with<br />

MAPS. The Movie Animation <strong>Park</strong> Studios is to be<br />

realized for a calculated amount of 100 million Euro<br />

in the Malaysian city of Meru. A film park will apparently<br />

come into being on almost 21 hectares,<br />

and according to an announcement by Steve A.<br />

Sanderson it will be at the very least as good as Universal<br />

Studios Singapore, or even better. Different<br />

to the last mentioned and the planned Twentieth<br />

Century Fox World, at least 60% of the total area will<br />

be covered over and air-conditioned according to<br />

Sanderson. The opening is planned for the end of<br />

2015 with an anticipated 1.4 million visitors in the<br />

first fiscal year.<br />

8City<br />

By 2030, a huge 200 billion Euro theme park and<br />

gambling oasis by the name of 8City is to be realized<br />

in the South Korean port city of Incheon. In the<br />

event that the project gets the green light, the<br />

coastal resort on Yongyu-Muui Island located near<br />

the international airport Incheon, will contain casinos,<br />

hotels, promenades, theme parks, race tracks<br />

ski-slopes and a yacht harbour. The main attractions<br />

are to be installed in a phallus-formed<br />

elongated glass dome.<br />

Universal Studios Beijing<br />

Following the 2016 opening of the fifth Universal<br />

Studios Resort in South Korea, there are plans for<br />

further expansion in Asia with the opening of the<br />

sixth resort in the Chinese capital of Beijing.<br />

Initiator and investor is USJ Co, which already operates<br />

Universal Studios Japan in Osaka. 1.45<br />

billion Euro is planned to be invested after years of<br />

negotiations. Construction will already begin this<br />

year in the Beijing district of Tongzhou.<br />

In the meanwhile USJ Co has confirmed that it is already<br />

looking for a further location in Asia, in order<br />

to open the seventh Universal Resort in 2020. There<br />

has however been no comment about the matter<br />

from Universal Studios Theme <strong>Park</strong>s, a subsidiary<br />

of NBC Universal.<br />

PROJECTS<br />

Wuxi Wanda City.<br />

Western Sydney Theme <strong>Park</strong><br />

With an investment volume of a calculated 4.7<br />

billion Euro, the Chinese billionaire Wang Jianlin<br />

(Wanda Group) intends to build a mega-theme<br />

park, which apparently will outshine its direct competitor<br />

in the neighbourhood, Disneyland Shanghai,<br />

opening in 2015.<br />

The specialists from Forrec have been engaged as<br />

park designer. On an area of 120 hectares there is<br />

to be a Movie <strong>Park</strong>, an indoor kiddie-park, and an<br />

outdoor theme park erected. Construction officially<br />

started already at the end of February, and the first<br />

building phase should open in 2016. It has been<br />

calculated that after the complete realization 20<br />

million visitors will attend the park annually.<br />

The newly founded proprietary company of the<br />

same name is currently searching for an ideal location<br />

in order to resurrect Australia’s Wonderland.<br />

The 1985 theme park erected by Taft Broadcasting<br />

and last operated by the Sunway Group closed its<br />

gates in 2004, after having to deal with setbacks<br />

due to the attacks on the 11th September 2001 and<br />

in Bali in 2002, and the SARS and bird flu epidemics,<br />

from which it could not recover. However<br />

Ammar Khan now intends to realize a park of the<br />

same name with a Multiplex-cinema, hotels, restaurants,<br />

shopping mall and convention centre, and<br />

is now searching for grounds and investors. A decision<br />

is expected this year.<br />

A WATERPARK FOR OCEAN PARK<br />

Text:<br />

Stefan Rothaug<br />

With the opening of the "Polar Adventure" the<br />

master-redevelopment-plan for the "new"<br />

Ocean <strong>Park</strong> in Hong Kong in 2012 has been successfully<br />

completed, and quasi as reward the<br />

prestigious Applause Award was received. And<br />

once again in 2013 a visitor record was attained<br />

with 7.7 million guests.<br />

However this year there are also two new attractions<br />

– the animal presentation "Adventures in Australia"<br />

as well as a large shark aquarium. Next year<br />

the long awaited underground<br />

connection will go<br />

into operation, with which the<br />

park hopes for a repeat increase in visitors, especially<br />

by individual visitors. 2016 should see the<br />

opening of the long planned hotel with 495 rooms,<br />

and in the summer of 2017 the "Thai Shue Wan"<br />

water park will come into being on an as yet empty<br />

park area. Additionally the kiddie area "Whiskers<br />

Harbour" is to be renovated. And believe it or not<br />

there apparently will be 30 new attractions in 2017,<br />

25 of which will be in the water park in both the indoor<br />

and outdoor areas. 13 water slides and the<br />

longest Lazy River in the world have also been<br />

grandly announced. Flamingos and turtles will also<br />

populate the water park area. In 1990 Ocean <strong>Park</strong><br />

had closed its own water park. The now planned<br />

reopening cleverly coincides with the 40 th anniversary<br />

of the park, a shot at competitor Disney which<br />

can't motivate itself to bring older visitors back as<br />

repeaters to relive childhood memories on wild<br />

water slides. The investment announcement also<br />

came practically simultaneously with the opening<br />

of the new Chimelong Ocean Kingdom in Hengqin<br />

(Mainland China), located not far from Hong Kong<br />

at the end of January, and which serves a very similar<br />

target group.<br />

erected by Ocean <strong>Park</strong><br />

KOLMARDEN ZOO<br />

Shortly after the new season<br />

began, and before most of the<br />

novelties in the Scandinavian<br />

theme parks opened, the tranquil<br />

Kolmården Zoo stole the<br />

show from all of them! A<br />

gigantic project has just been<br />

announced by the Scandinavian<br />

company <strong>Park</strong>s and Resorts,<br />

which also owns Gröna<br />

Lund: the installation of the<br />

"Wildfire".<br />

Text:<br />

Photos: <strong>Park</strong>s and Resorts<br />

On a somewhat difficult terrain with cliffs and<br />

chasms there are plans for a 1,300 m long and<br />

57 m high coaster that will reach speeds of up to<br />

113 km/h, a depth of 49 m, an 83° steep drop, three<br />

inversions, and many other interesting ride elements.<br />

Manufacturer is the Rocky Mountain Construction<br />

(RMC). The company's European agent is<br />

Vekoma from the Netherlands, which simultaneously<br />

is producing all mechanical elements as well<br />

as the control system and electronics. Peter<br />

Osbeck, Ride Manager of the park group, <strong>Park</strong>s<br />

and Resorts: "We have taken some of the best elements<br />

of the world’s best roller coasters, added<br />

new ideas and created a unique ride.”In the official<br />

video, the "Wildfire" will be currently extolled in the<br />

world as the largest wooden coaster in the world,<br />

but this pertains to the height. In actual fact "Wildfire"<br />

belongs more in the Hybrid Coaster category<br />

due to its massive steel "Topper Tracks". Nevertheless<br />

this fact doesn't reduce the ride fun, in fact<br />

does just the opposite. "Wildfire" will without a doubt<br />

create a furore alone due to its unusual terrain and<br />

the exceptional ride figures – and not only in Scandinavia.<br />

The first turning of the spade has already<br />

been done, however completion is only targeted for<br />

the year 2016.<br />

Already last year Sweden's Kolmården Zoo celebrated<br />

its 50 th birthday, and will be presenting the<br />

20,000 m 2 kiddie area "Bamses Värld" in celebration<br />

of the occasion. The very popular comic figure<br />

in Sweden is already represented in the zoo, but will<br />

now have its own theme world with 4 rides, a water<br />

playground, a small outdoor theatre, a restaurant<br />

and shops. Jora Vision from the Netherlands is responsible<br />

for the theming, and the show will also be<br />

staged by its subsidiary Jora Entertainment. ■<br />

"Wildfire" will be playing<br />

DISNEY’S ANIMAL KINGDOM<br />

MAGAZINE<br />

Text:<br />

Already at the end of 2011 Disney secured its<br />

worldwide rights for the use of the Avatar-films<br />

and characters in the theme park segment by an<br />

agreement with Fox Filmed Entertainment and<br />

James Cameron's company, Lightstorm Entertainment.<br />

And now it has come to the realization of the first<br />

Avatar-theme area at Disney's Animal Kingdom<br />

(part of Walt Disney World in Orlando).<br />

"Pandora's Mystical Universe" is to become real for<br />

an investment amount of 500 million dollars. From<br />

2017, all park visitors will be able to submerge<br />

themselves in a world living in harmony with nature.<br />

It will be interesting to see how the soaring Banshees,<br />

bioluminescent rainforests and floating<br />

mountains can be implemented for rides.<br />

There will be two ride attractions that are already<br />

confirmed: the first will be a boat ride through an<br />

illuminated plant world, and in the other, visitors will<br />

be able to fly through nature (probably a floating<br />

cinema as for example Disney’s "Soarin’ Over<br />

California"). The design team will be guided by the<br />

Avatar producer Jon Landau and Disney-<br />

Imagineer Joe Rohde (who for example is well<br />

known for his ability in setting the large coaster<br />

"Expedition Everest" skilfully into the scene). ■<br />

HOLIDAY PARK<br />

In the shadows of the large media<br />

hype about the opening of<br />

"Sky Screamer" from Premier<br />

Rides, the good old water attraction<br />

"Teufelsfässer" from<br />

Mack Rides went almost unnoticed<br />

with its new appearance<br />

after being completely<br />

overworked, also opened punctually<br />

to the start of the season.<br />

Text & Photos: Olaf Esser<br />

The Holiday <strong>Park</strong> has already shown in the past<br />

years that it can set even older areas and<br />

attractions newly into the scene, which is also the<br />

case of the "Teufelsfässer".<br />

And who else should be godfather other than<br />

Wickie the clever Viking boy and his friends. The<br />

devilish decoration of the "Teufelsfässer" was removed,<br />

and Wickie, Halvar, Ylvie, Snorre and Ulme<br />

moved in. All the buildings now have a very colourful<br />

design, resulting in a friendly Viking village coming<br />

into being. The new name for the flume ride is<br />

“Wickie Splash” now.<br />

The entrance area has been moved nearer to the<br />

actual station. For this purpose a new bridge has<br />

been erected that crosses over the waterway. Only<br />

a small part of the old waiting area is used, but on<br />

peak days there is still the possibility to use a part<br />

of the earlier waiting area.<br />

The new design has been perfectly implemented<br />

on the outside, and visitors are integrated into a<br />

colourful Viking world. Unfortunately there is nothing<br />

new in the inside of the attraction, and even the<br />

loading area remains unchanged. In addition to the<br />

lovely scenic landscape course in the open, there<br />

are only dark track sections on the inside. But this<br />

doesn't really bother the actual ride experience, as<br />

even after many years, the 1992 water attraction is<br />

still perfect in performance and is equipped with<br />

everything that a lively water attraction needs. With<br />

a length of more than one kilometre, three drops, a<br />

reverse ride, and a final drop from a 20 metres<br />

height, the changes with action and beautiful views<br />

are perfect.<br />

We will be reporting about the 50 m high coaster<br />

from Premier Rides that opened on the 12 th of April<br />

in our next edition.<br />

After a long lean period the project from Ilyas<br />

and Mustafa Galadari is now financially secure<br />

and will be brought quickly to an end.<br />

The indoor and outdoor park already under construction<br />

will receive a cash injection of 325 million<br />

$ from the Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank, with which the<br />

first park of the earlier Dubailand will finally be<br />

realized. Following a number of announcements,<br />

it apparently will be the largest indoor<br />

park in the world with 140,000 m 2 . Around<br />

20,000 visitors are expected daily – perhaps somewhat<br />

too highly estimated.<br />

The theming has been secured by licences from<br />

Marvel Entertainment and Cartoon Network. One of<br />

the main attractions will be an LSM-Coaster from<br />

Mack Rides (with a similar layout to the "blue fire" at<br />

Europa-<strong>Park</strong>).<br />

Further investors are the Al Hilal Bank, the Commercial<br />

Bank International, the Noor Islamic Bank<br />

and the Sharjah Islamic Bank.<br />

QUIOTO<br />

A new cable railway is in planning in the Ecuadorian<br />

capital of Quito. As announced by the<br />

Lord Mayor Jorge Albán, the attraction will apparently<br />

be 14.5 km (!) long, which will connect<br />

the highest-lying capital city in the world (2,850<br />

m) with its international airport.<br />

In the event that<br />

the plans that<br />

have been submitted<br />

by the public<br />

Transport Association<br />

(Aerometro)<br />

can be realized,<br />

the new attraction<br />

“Metroférico” will<br />

be able to transport<br />

approximately<br />

4,000 passengers<br />

a day (including<br />

baggage) in<br />

up to 160 cabins<br />

(á 25 persons). Construction begin is anticipated to<br />

be in autumn 2014, and completion at the end of<br />

2016. The background here is the increasing<br />

attractiveness of the old colonial city for tourists and<br />

business people. The new construction will be the<br />

longest person-cable railway in South America.<br />

Construction will apparently be undertaken by the<br />

Austrian-Swiss Firm Doppelmayr/Garaventa AG.<br />

Quito already has the smaller cable railway “TelefériQo”,<br />

which is part of the small park Parque<br />

Volcano, travelling high into the skies.<br />

MOVIE PARK<br />

Anew and surprising<br />

cooperation of two<br />

European parks has<br />

come into being between<br />

Movie <strong>Park</strong> Germany<br />

(<strong>Park</strong> Group Parques<br />

Reunidos) and the Efteling<br />

theme park in the<br />

Netherlands: all new season-pass<br />

holders have<br />

the right to visit the other<br />

park once during the<br />

season.<br />

Whether or not this<br />

cooperation will be further<br />

developed was not<br />

known at the time of<br />

going to press. ■<br />
