Very well received by

visitors: The wine tasting in

Göbel’s Ferris Wheel at the

Mainz Frühjahrsmesse

A restored wooden caravan

and a number of historic showman

vehicles were exhibited

Text & Photos: Norman Vogt

On 11 th April – one day before the official opening

of the Mainz Frühjahrsmesse – the Interessengemeinschaft

Mainzer Schausteller und Marktbeschicker

e.V. (IMSM) (Mainz Association of

Showmen and Merchants) held a wine tasting in

the Ferris Wheel from Göbel, to which they had

invited politicians, media representatives and


The event was moderated by the incumbent Rhine-

Hesse Wine Queen Judith Dorst, who provided

information on every wine served. Among the 8

different types of wine offered there were, for example,

a Dornfelder Rose demi-sec, Chardonnay Classic or

some Spätburgunder dry, such as a “Blanc de Noir”.

After every second round, the Ferris Wheel stopped for

a refill of glasses. Moreover, pretzels, cheese, grapes,

and Fleischwurst were served as a good lining for the

guests’ stomachs during the 2-hour wine tasting,

which proved quite entertaining for the guests. After

the wine tasting, much 'talking shop' was conducted

in front of the Ferris Wheel, where cosy seating

possibilities, a bar and a number of bistro tables had

been deployed along with a fairground organ, two

historic tractors, and a thoroughly restored slat-roofed

caravan providing a beautiful nostalgic flair.

IMSM Chairman Aldo Sottile and the attendant

members were highly satisfied with the course of the

event, which lasted up until the late evening. The 140

attending guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves and

contacts between the showmen and the politicians

were deepened. Ursula Groden-Kranisch, member of

the Bundestag and Chairwoman of her party in the

neighbouring community of Hechtsheim had come

from Berlin, just as had Günter Beck, the Lord Mayor

of Mainz.

A small fairground organ

provided appropriate

background music

With the multi-storey Funhouse

“Gaudi-Hütt’n” that

was taken over from the Bart

firm at the end of the 2013

season, Hartmann & Söhne

now own an impressive Funhouse


The Walkthrough construction

specialist from Iserlohn has now

added the “Gaudi-Hütt’n to their

collection of attractions, consisting

of “Time Factory” and

“Krumm & Schief Bau”. The new

arrival was presented under Hartmann management at

the Hannover Frühlingsfest for the first time. For the Hartman

brothers Dennis, Paul and Riccardo, the appearance

in Hannover was preceded by 4 months of hard

work, as the attraction had to undergo a labour-intensive

renovation before it could be presented as brand new.■

At the Osterkirmes in Saarlouis,

the “Magic” round ride

from the Spangenberger family

surprised visitors with a new

gondola design.

The twelve gondolas have been

covered with foils in strong

colours and circus motifs. Every

group of 4 gondolas has been

painted in the same colour with

the same circus scenes, with pink

having been assigned to artists,

green to clowns, yellow to

animals, and blue to magic. The

Spangenberger name sign and a

number of stars have been

mounted to the front side of the

gondolas. The foils were made by

the "Attacke" advertising agency

in Ulm, and affixed to the

gondolas by an expert paint

After last year’s entry into the

“Guinness Book of Records”

with 1973 women in dirndls, a

new record attempt is to be set

at this year’s Brezelfest in

Speyer. According to plans,

several thousands of people in

dirndls and lederhosen are to

participate in a procession

along Maximilianstraße up to the

Brezelfest, thus breaking the

current world record of 2,664

people held by the city of Nürnberg.

At this year’s Frühjahrsmesse,

numerous flyers have already

called upon the public to

bring this world record home to

Speyer. Whether or not the organisers

will succeed in guiding

the masses of visitors in single

file along Maximilianstraße to the

Brezelfest on the Messplatz on

12 th July at 5 p.m., when residents

and guests will meet for

the record attempt at Altpörtel

and on Maximilianstraß, remains

to be seen. After the event, the

long “Nacht der Tracht”, or Night

of Traditional Costumes, will be

celebrated in the beer tent. ■

To mark the 50 th birthday of the “Geisterstadt”,

having been operated by Hermann Fellerhoff and

under this proud name since 2011, new ghosts

have been installed and the existing residents

have been brought 'up to date' for the 2014 season.

The huge bat in the front, some smaller examples

along the course, as well as the monster in the trolley

come from the American constructer Adam Johnston

from California, who has already developed a number

of figures for the enterprise. The freight landed very

well packed at Nürnberg airport. “But it contains a

dinosaur!” exclaimed an airport staff member while

clearing the formalities. He had probably seen the

head of the huge bat and determined the mysterious

creature to be an extinct prehistoric creature. Further

novelties are two figures from the Hippel workshop:

the jumping monster and the vampire with a monk’s

habit. Unimportant for the public, but a significant

saving of labour for the operator, is the new

galvanized heavy load flooring. It provides for a

saving of five hours of build-up and dismantling time.

Jennifer Fellerhoff herself is responsible for the

impressive make-up of the staff, taking about 30

minutes for just one face. In addition to heads with

seemingly painful injuries fitting neatly into a ghost

ride, there is also the likeable clown stirring up the

frightened visitors. The actors make their appearance

in the station area as well as behind the hinged doors

at the entrance and the exit. The history of the ride:

First owner was the Löffelhardt firm, who thought

there were too few turns inside the ride and

immediately considered a reconstruction, in order to

be able to install a higher number of scary moments.

The last owner prior to the takeover by Fellerhoff was

the Austrian Bachmeier firm from Wels. A similar ride,

almost identical construction, is toured throughout

France under the name of “King Kong”. Both

attractions are exotic and unique rides.




At the Palmkirmes in Recklinghausen,

visitors were able to try

out the new “Sky Drive” ride

track at the “Tower Event Centre”

presented by Charles Blume. In

addition to this new ride

attraction, the owner also talks

about a “considerable increase

in the overall appeal” of the

tallest transportable skyscraper.

Having been installed directly above the

entrance area, the new ride track immediately

catches the visitor's eye from the outside. The whole

“Sky Drive” construction is built onto a 40 foot

container. During the build-up the ride track, which

is freely laid out above the entrance area, is unfolded

from the front in order to extend the track. In some

sections, the track itself takes a right-angle; a

feature well-known from the “Wilde Maus”. The effect

is much the same – passengers have the sensation

of careering towards an abyss, but sheer away at the

very last moment. The construction of the vehicles

resembles a Segway.

On the tower, the vehicles do not operate as

independent units, but are track bound and permanently

installed. Passengers simply get in, are enclosed

by well-padded safety restraints giving them

the feeling of absolute safety, and it is reassuring to

know that a three-point locking system has been built

in. At a height of 7 metres, the vehicles travel to the

outside and provide passengers a varied and quite

spectacular ride experience for all the passers-by to

see. This ride attraction was built by the German

Sunkid firm, which also built the new coaster trains

for the “Teststrecke”. The development took a lot of

time, but the result is well worth seeing and



experiencing. On completion, the construction was

approved by TÜV Süd. Taking a ride in this attraction

is voluntary; no visitor is forced to partake! At the time

of our visit however, we found that about 95 percent

of the visitors wanted to try out the new fun experience.

However, passengers have to be at least

1.20 metres in height. According to Charles Blume,

further new investments include the new LED illumination

of the top of the tower, more than 120,000

new LEDs in a new light tunnel, two new LED

screens on the 7 th floor, as well as lighting effects in

the themed rooms. The new lighting array was made

by the DMX-Concept firm. “Master Salvatore” still

welcomes the visitors to the outdoor area, and also

appears several times inside the construction; for

example the master’s head spitting water and a

second Dali head that immediately blows the

visitors dry again. The great Master welcomes the

visitors quite grumpily, while continuing to simply

apply himself to his painting.

Furthermore, new figures from the Hofmann firm and

from Power-Metal-Art were integrated into the construction.

The almost 2-metre Terminator and the 2-

metre Dali figure were equipped with laser effects.

Every visitor can choose how long to stay in the

Event-Tower. Many visitors also enjoy the view from

high above, having refreshments in the Skyline-Café.

For wheelchair users, 3 floors of the Tower are

barrier-free and wheelchair-friendly, and a lift takes

wheelchair users and other handicapped persons

comfortably up to the Skyline-Café. The construction

is almost 31 metres tall and requires a ground area

of 22 x 15 metres. 980 m 2 walk-in space on 9 floors

offer not only the new ride track, a Sky-Vie, a Sky-

Walk Walkthrough, the Skyline-Café, 7 bridges and

balconies, 12 themed rooms, 26 gaming devices, a

24 m 2 LED video screen, free toilet facilities,

distorting mirrors, spider tunnels, light tunnels, the

singing rock granny, and many other effects. ■




The brand new 2-pillar dodgem

track “Ocean Drive” from Theo

Hahn from Schwanau built by

Adesco celebrated its première

at last year’s Martinimarkt in

Gengenbach (Black Forest).

Sascha, Theo, and Thomas

Hahn (f.l.t.r)

Last July, Theo Hahn, who had been touring with a

6-pillar dodgem track built by the Mack firm since

1962, contracted the Adesco firm to build the attraction.

The quality as well as the light-weight and

compact design of the dodgem track provides for a

fast relocation of the construction – the build-up takes

only six hours – all tipped the scales towards the

choice of this manufacturer. The Mack dodgem track

was sold to the Eifelpark, and the 23 dodgem cars,

newly purchased only a couple of years ago, are now

used on the new construction. As the Hahn family has

always been enthralled by Florida, this theme was

chosen for the new dodgem track. Heavy Harleys,

typical American pick-up trucks and limousines have

been mounted on the rim, and the construction

features surfers, stars and starlets, as

well as highway motifs. Paul Deputter from

Belgium was in charge of the dodgem

track’s visual design, which he carried out in

the manufacturer’s halls. A total of 8,500 LED

lights provide the perfect lighting for the

dodgem track. The platform has been made

of aluminium; the steel parts have been

galvanized and the sound equipment from

the Bell firm provide the perfect acoustic

experience. Relocating the “Ocean Drive” with ground

measurements of 25 x 11 metres, a height of 6 metres,

and electrical requirements

of 50 kW

requires 3 transport

vehicles (1 centre

trailer, 1 chaise wagon,

and 1 paybox

wagon). The new

dodgem track will be

presented at about

25 venues each

season. Apart from

the Martinimarkt in

Gegenbach, the events in Kehl, Offenburg, and Oberkirchen

are among the regular venues of the Hahn

Many large events are held at Pentecost – also in

Bavaria; for example in Erlangen, Bayreuth, and

Ingolstadt. Yet Amberg, the almost 45,000-resident

city in the Upper Palatinate in East Bavaria, is

rarely mentioned in this regard, and quite unjustifiably

so, in our view. Both of Amberg's Dult

events – at Pentecost and in autumn – have

developed very well over the years.

In how many cities, we may ask, is there a director of

the city archive who meticulously edits the history of

an event, giving differently themed speeches and

commanding a large, interested

audience in the run-up to the

event? Only in Amberg! Here Dr.

Johannes Laschinger has packed

the results of his research into the

650 Dult years into exciting stories,

the telling of which makes history

well-worth experiencing. Well

done to him! The list of operators

for the anniversary Dult are well

worth considering; the “Atlantis”

Walkthrough construction (Drelischek),

“Cyber Space” (Kaiser),

“Star Dancer” (Störzer), “Street

Fighter” (Zinnecker), dodgem

track (Perz), Simulator (Kollmann),

Swing Boat (Buch), “Rund um den

Tegernsee” (Hohmann) and the

“Orion 2” Ferris Wheel (Drliczek),

along with attractive kiddie rides,

sales and game booths. But that is

not nearly all. There will also be a

historic Dult section, where Buch’s

Chair-o-Plane, a large fairground

organ, as well as old and fully

operational Hanomag traction

engines from Günter Perz will

bring back the good old days.

Moreover, the bric-a-brac market,

offering everything from hosiery,

flags and sheets to sunglasses

and fabrics, will leave nothing to

be desired. To mark this year’s

anniversary, there will also be “Der

billige Jakob” (Cheap Jack), who

is well known throughout Germany

and can almost be considered as

a show booth operator with his

impressive, ribald announcements.

In short – everything has

been thought of, even the specially

brewed Dult beer from the

Amberg Kummert brewery.

For several years, the Amberg Dult

has been organised by the municipal enterprise of

public law, and by the Amberg Congress Marketing

(ACM) with its manager Petra Strobl. She is supported

by fairground director Markus Bayer, as well as the Dult

coordinator Maria Frank. Sandra Hofmann and Kathrin

Stich work professionally on advertising. Josef (Joe)

Richthammer from the municipal Public Order Office

used to organise the Amberg Dult events for about 35

years before the organisation was handed over to the

ACM in 1997.

On the occasion of the anniversary, there will be a festschrift,

or commemorative publication, a new Dult

poster and, naturally, the popular Dult flyer providing

an overview of all relevant information.



Dear Dult visitors,

Our Amberg Dult is a very special event, no question about it! Not

only because it captures the kiddies' hearts with its exciting

attractions including numerous attractive rides, but it also offers an

ample choice of culinary and musical delicacies to young people and


Further to the modern ride attractions and the always up-to-date programme,

there is also the bric-a-brac market that offers goods that

leave nothing to be desired. It is also an especially important fact that

the 10-day Dult, held twice a year, will celebrate its 650 th birthday,

which makes it truly an outstanding event.

The event ranks only second among the oldest Volksfest events in

Bavaria – following the Gillamoos in Abensberg. I would like to use

this anniversary as an opportunity to say “thank you” with all my heart.

First of all my thanks go to Kurfürst Ruprecht I von der Pfalz (Elector

Ruprecht I), who on 13 th September 1364 granted Amberg the right

to hold three fairs and markets every year, which started the longterm

tradition of the event that has been preserved to this day. Moreover,

I would also like to thank the Amberg Congress Marketing,

which has been organising the two Amberg Dult events in spring and

autumn since the 1990s. Thank you also to the countless operators,

marketers and all the other participants; it is due to their efforts that

the event is very well attended and highly popular with the public

every year.

I also heartily congratulate all

those who each in their own

way, from the distant past

right up to this very day, have

contributed to the success of

the “Dult project”, and I celebrate

their commitment which

will certainly be rewarded

with crowds of visitors also in

this anniversary year – a prodigious

number indeed of

both young and old visitors

alike; in other words, absolutely

everyone who has the

possibility to celebrate this

event and at the same time

enjoy the best entertainment.

On this note, I wish the

Amberg Dult, the 650 th anniversary, which will be celebrated with a

festive opening ceremony at the beginning of the season on 6 th June

2014, many further enjoyable and entertaining years!

the event's family-friendly flair that appeals to every

generation. As is the case in many other

cities, the first event after the long winter

break is “better” than the autumn event. The

Amberg Dult spreads over an area of about

20,000 m 2 , and oh yes, the price for a litre of

beer is less than €7 in Amberg.

For Vera Blum, Amberg is her second home.

She has already seen some 100 Dult events

and her memories are only vague of the very

first ones. She works at the shooting gallery,

where nothing can unsettle her, and her

style of communicating with the visitors is

simply all part of the fun for everybody.

Berg poster 2014

Rarities from the

Berg archive

The Bergkirchweih introduced in 1755 numbers

among the oldest Volksfest events in Germany.

Actually, it dates back even further into the past,

and now the Berg is calling again.

In the late 17 th century, the first rock-cut cellars of the

breweries were built at the foot of the Burgberg, and

the Schießhaus, or shooting house, where the Altstädter

Schützenkompanie used to hold its Vogelschießen,

or bird-shoot event at Pentecost, was built

in their vicinity in 1729. As this event - above all the

“Vögeleszug” procession, in which the Schützenkompanie

marches to the Schießhaus carrying the

wooden eagle - attracted many non-resident visitors,

the council of the united Erlangen old and new

towns decided to combine the old town fair events

that had been abolished in 1744, and hold the threeday

event in front of the Altstädter Schießhaus

beginning on Whit Tuesday. Due also to the

enthusiastic students’ reports, the Bergkirchweih

evolved into a popular beer fest enjoying cult status

in the middle of the 19 th century, attracting visitors

from Nürnberg and Fürth even back then. Repeatedly

extended and finally attaining a 12-day duration,

the cellar operations and the “Budenstraße” (Street

of Booths) were continually extended, whereas the

goods fair and the Vögeleszug disappeared, and the

shooting was relocated. Despite being interrupted

during the two World Wars, the “Berg” steadily

developed into an event where visitors now far outnumber

the Erlangen locals.

259 Years Erlangen Bergkirchweih

Huguenot city, Siemens city, university city, health

city – Erlangen is well-known under these names, but

Erlangen is far more than all these. Erlangen is a

traditional beer city. Karl May praised the excellent

quality of Erlangen beer, and in the second half of

the 19 th century, Erlangen even took the top position

in Bavarian beer export – back than there were,

believe it or not, 18 breweries in the city. While this is

naturally well-known among experts, Erlangen’s

reputation as beer city becomes evident to anyone

visiting the city who may not be 'in the know' every

year around Pentecost, when thousands of thirsty

visitors descend upon the Burgberg to enjoy a fresh

litre of beer and cheerful music, and to spend

The Berg entices masses

of visitors

Showmen at the Berg Event

Nowadays, the Berg event is a glittering, sparkling,

loud experience course with a varied choice and

crazy ride attractions, quite unlike the quiet Berg

event back in 1755. At that time there were no rides

and Ferris Wheels. The Berg was a market, with

travelling vendors offering their goods for sale, foodstuff

being much praised, charlatans and quacks

offering their dubious services, fortune tellers seeking

and finding their crowds and publicans serving

beer. The entertainment programme was also extended

– showmen came to Erlangen with their show

booths and presented their rarities, circus artists,

freak shows, Panopticons, dog and monkey theatres,

menageries, flea circuses and Punch and Judy

shows. In the early 19 th century the old Ferris Wheel

(a humble predecessor), a Switchback, as well as a

double-floor carousel attracted the visitors. The cinematography

is a true sensation and the predecessor

of the cinema is a crowd puller also at its Erlangen

appearance. The steam engine takes the place of

muscular strength and replaces horses used as

working animals as well as for transport. The showman

trade as it is known today develops slowly in the

19 th century and rapidly from about 1950, when technology

brings about new movement sequences and

hydraulics allow for elevating and lowering movements

to be constructed in changing combinations.

Futuristic names for ride and Walkthrough constructions

inspired by the spirit of the times

appeared at the Berg. Round-up, Enterprise, Ufo,

Ikarus, Ranger, Rainbow, Super Bowl, Commander,

Hexentanz, Playball, Schwabinchen, Bayern Kurve,

Sound Factory, Sputnik, Disco-Express, Astro-Liner,

See-Sturm-Bahn, Freefall Tower, Imagination, Magic

House, Hollywood Dreamland, Miami Ride, Night Fly,

Jumping, Die Spinne, Star Dancer, Petersburger

Schlittenfahrt, Countdown, Domino, Frisbee, Take

Off, Shake, Let’s Dance, Wikinger-Schiff, Zugspitzbahn

or Zeppelin were just some of the striking

crowd pullers.

Novelties 2014

For the first time, the Deinert family from Unna will

present its “Big Spin” at the Berg. With another firsttime

appearance, Thomas Clauß’s “Flip Fly”, a

speedier ride will be built up at the end of the Berg

fairground. After a pleasant swinging movement, the

operator steps on the accelerator and the passengers

are turned upside down.

Thomas Clauß has known the Berg from childhood,

and indeed from his parents and grandparents, and

now he will present his own attraction for the first time.

According to tradition, a showcase attraction from the

show and fun sector will be built up in the centre of

the Berg fairground. This year, it will be the family

attraction “Krumm & Schief Bau” from Hartmann. Presented

once again after a break, will be Josef Dölle’s

“Hot Shot” Ejector Seat. For the second time, the

Nülken family will come to Franconia from the far

north with their large “Sky Dance” chain ride, soaring

high up into the sky. And naturally there will be many

regular participants in the culinary, games and entertainment

sectors, which liven up the Berg and leave

nothing to be desired. With a proud 55 metre depth,

the 300-ton “Europa-Rad” will provide its passengers

a magnificent view of the Berg. For 25 years now – a

proud quarter of a century - the showman family Kipp

has been a very popular guest in Erlangen.

Berg Classic: the Dodgem Track

Once again to be the classic meeting point for the

younger generation; the dodgem track. There are two

reasons that keep it young, the preference of the

latest hits blaring powerfully from the loudspeakers

and legal driving without driving licence – even if it is

only on a 13 x 26 track. It goes without saying that

many contacts can be made at a meeting like this –

the dodgem track has always been and is still the

ideal place for flirting. In 1959, the Erlangen showman

firm Kunstmann introduced their brand new and,

Berg build-up: Here

Nülken’s giant “Sky Dance” ride


The dodgem track in Erlangen: “Der große Crash” (Kunstmann)

at that time, top-grade modern dodgem track built in Germany, with only

six pillars supporting the roof. That was a technical revolution. Only a

couple of years before, the roof structure was still supported by 36

heavy wooden pillars. Back then six transports were required to relocate

the dodgem track from one venue in Franconia to another; every single

part had to be moved during build up and dismantling. In 1973, the

“Kunstmanns” were once again at the forefront of technology, which had

taken a big step forward – after all it made work much easier. The roof

structure was supported by only two stable pillars which were unfolded

at the ground and could be hydraulically raised. Since the year 2000 the

Wilhelm Kunstmann oHG – its official company name - has owned a

further improved variation: now the whole track construction, the

podium, and the roof structure are folded up and built onto a heavy

centre trailer. As a result only two transport vehicles are required for

transporting the dodgem track, which can be built up ready for operation

within 10 hours by a coordinated team. The paybox wagon, an eye

catcher due to its artwork, is also the garage for the dodgem cars. The

100 th Kunstmann anniversary is fast approaching. It started in 1920 with

the first Berg appearance – back then with a chair-o-plane and a

shooting gallery.

For about 30 years, the Augsburg puppeteer family Aprill have been a

participant in Erlangen. Their repertoire comprises 40 plays, and there

are often more adults than children at the Punch and Judy show.

A small booth and a nail beam belong to the enterprise,

and bring in enough for the Punch and his

friends to live on. These days, the performances that

used to last 20 to 25 minutes have been compressed

to about 10 minutes. “Neither the children nor their

parents have free time and are always in a hurry,”

says impresario Fritz Aprill. Long gone are the days,

when his predecessor, Arthur Nenninger, presented

evening performances including the classics of world

literature in his sold-out theatre.

The age pyramid is changing – steadily decreasing

children and steadily increasing pensioners. Even

though the university city of Erlangen accommodates

many young adults, this is an urgent problem. An ever

increasing number of older visitors will not get anything

out of the Berg party zone. Binding them to the

traditional event that they used to love is quite a

challenge for the organisers from the Erlangen city

authorities. One possibility would be a nostalgic Berg

with a matching offering, for which the area at

Schützenweg would be ideal. Simply think about it …

The Berg goes wild – in the Erlangen pubs from midnight,

this is guaranteed! Nobody wants to spoil the

party for young people – but the orgies have grown

wilder from year to year. The Berg is disqualified from

being the aperitif for a long party night, simply because

of all the money spent in the pubs, and not at

the Berg event. Many visitors say, “It’s the showmen’s

own fault if there is no more business.” Nonsense!

They have been fighting this trend for years and want

to change the opening hours. At 10 a.m. the fairground

is deserted, and by the time it’s hustling and

bustling at 10.30 p.m. it is not long before it has to

close. These two contradictory aspects are hardly

harmonious! Visitors come to the Berg later (summertime,

hot temperatures, etc.) and want to celebrate

longer. In future, the Berg can remain attractive only

if it can maintain its excellent reputation in the showman

industry. Therefore, it is high time to take action.

Abolishing the traditional beverage booth from 2015

to counter alcohol abuse is received with bafflement,

just as are discussions about reducing the alcohol

content of the so-called “liquid bread”. There are

many subjects for discussion relating to the Berg and

its future. But now it is high time that it beckons us

once again. By the way, one thing the Berg can do

without is the car! Visitors who want to join the party

should leave their car at home. The Berg area is

easily accessible by public transport, and it is always

quite a special experience to see the route “S”

This year’s Sterkrade Corpus Christi Fair, which

will be celebrated from 18 th to 23 rd June, will begin

with a two-hour long 'Happy Hour'! For six days

visitors will be in high spirits, and enjoy fun and

culinary delicacies. A high standard fair event

both in quality and size will be presented on the

colourful fun-mile spreading through the entire

city centre.

Due to construction work and redesigns, city centres

change over the years, often resulting in regular

losses of sites for fair events, just as the case in Oberhausen

where there is no longer any available site for

one of the huge coasters. New retail outlets, green

areas, parking facilities and parks have shaped the

image of the city centre for some time now. Sometimes

a fair event has to make way for new changes;

it just has to cope with new situations. For a fairground

director like Sina Illmann in Sterkrade, this proves a

big challenge every year, not to mention ongoing discussions

about whether the safety regulations for

large events make any sense.

The fair will be opened after the Happy Hour. On

opening day Sterkrade citizens tend to keep things

rather to themselves, and bizarrely celebrate their

“Christmas Eve” fair on this opening day. Circles of

friends, staff and societies will meet for a joint stroll

across the fairground or extensively celebrate at

“their” beverage outlets. It is the day and night of the

drink and snack booths, whereas the ride attractions

tend to be at a disadvantage. This will change on

Corpus Christi Day, when business will go full swing

in Sterkrade immediately after the church service. In

the last few years, the city centre was buzzing with

activity on this public holiday. Once again, the

“Bellevue” Ferris Wheel from Bruch will make its

rounds on the car park at the Technisches Rathaus

this year. On the Eugen zur Nieden-Ring, on the

access road to the Hirschhügel, Hartmann’s “Time

Factory” and the debutante “Flip Fly” from Clauß will

be available to the visitors, while further along, adjoining

the Bunker, Fackler’s Go-Kart Track “Rallye

Monte Carlo” will be built up. With as many as seven

large fairground attractions placed up to its foot, the

Hirschhügel hill itself will already offer a proper fair to

visitors. The “Starlight” dodgem track (Petter),

“Turbo Force” (Schäfer), “Beach Jumper” (Wegener),

“large Ghost Ride” (Schütze), Caterpillar Ride

(Steiger-Buchholz), “Breakdance” (Bruch), and the

“Auf Manitus Spuren” water ride (Heitmann-

Schneider) will provide varied ride fun. The collaboration

between Kaiser’s “High Energy” and Kreft’s

“Love-Express” on the Kleiner Markt already proved

successful two years

ago. On the Neuer

Markt visitors will encounter

the following

ride attractions this

time: Bruch’s “Spinning

Racer”, “Nessy”

and “Octopussy”

(both Markmann),

“Wellenflug” (Wendler),

and the “Schloss

Dracula” Ghost Ride

from Schütze, while

the Zilianplatz will be

occupied by three

large rides, including

the “Diamond” dodgem

track (Hartkopf-

Osselmann), the


(Schmidt) and “Circus-Circus”

Oberhausen citizens alone. On Saturday, the designated

Children’s Day, the younger visitors will be

offered an ample choice of special events. A fireworks

display on Monday evening will mark the end

of the superb six-day fair event. Those, who would

like to take home a souvenir from the Corpus Christi

Day Fair will easily find something appropriate in the

fairground office opposite the Ferris Wheel. ■

Impressions of the “Mega King

Tower” appearance at the

There can hardly be any more transparency – and the

fans and all those interested were delighted. Thanks

to high demand from organisers, the tour schedule for

the première year had already been fixed relatively

early. After Recklinghausen, Stuttgart, and Kaiserslautern

the tour schedule includes Bayreuth, Oberhausen-Sterkrade,

Goslar, Erbach, Crange, Erding,

Bad Dürkheim, once again Stuttgart (Cannstatt Volksfest),

Schloß Holte, Werne, Parchim, and Hochheim.

Two further venues have now been added at short

notice. Details are given in the following interview with

Andreas Zinnecker, in which the “Mega King Tower

owner also gives his detailed opinion on other topics.■

The advertising vehicle is

Mr Zinnecker, today is the last opening day in Stuttgart –

what is your first review after the first two venues?

Absolutely positive. We are highly satisfied with both the tower

and visitor attendance!

Really nothing negative?

Not with the tower itself. But there were some problems with

the lighting. After Stuttgart, the complete tower lighting will be

changed and replaced by a new system, which will first be used

in Kaiserslautern.

Why did you decide in favour of the Funtime construction?

Because this manufacturer has long-time experience with the

construction and building of tall towers, such as their successful

‘Star Flyer’ constructions. After the inspection of the first Funtime

Freefall Tower in Munich, I knew it was a good construction with a

brilliant construction technology – and that’s what I wanted!


And this proved to be true?

Yes, we are very happy with Funtime.

Already during the building phase, I was not

afraid a single day that the construction might not

be completed on time. We have followed every

phase on site, at the same time planning and

realising the required vehicle fleet.

Talking of the vehicle fleet – yours has

caused and still causes much discussion

among your fans and colleagues alike?

You see of course the operation, the ride, or

the construction you earn your money with is

most important. However, other things, such as

a decent, modern, uniformly designed vehicle

fleet, are also part of a company’s corporate

identity. We have a separate traction unit for

every transport of the tower – in other words

seven vehicles all painted in our company colour

royal blue.

Of course we did, but on a

lower scale. We always presented

our ‘Bayern-Breaker’ Breakdance

– even during this period.

What happened next?

When the end of the solar

boom was looming, we withdrew

from this sector in time. From

2012, we once again fully concentrated

on our showman

career, which we were able to do

knowing that we were in a good

financial position and had appropriate

reserves for investments

into novelty attractions. We first

presented the Loop-Fighter ‘The

King’ and now the ‘Mega King Tower’.

Would you like to add anything else, Mr


Andreas Zinnecker

Just as your advertising vehicle. Where

do you get old treasures like that?

The veteran Ford car used to belong to the

Berlin Kindl brewery and was for sale after the

brewery’s restructuring, and I went for it – without

knowing why at that moment. Now I know.

Mr Zinnecker, usually you do not talk

money. But in your case, there is much

speculation going on about how you have

been able to invest so much money into brand

new showman operations in a relatively short

time – and still are?

I know very well that this is much talked

about – mostly nonsense and often also rumours

are spread. I am glad to get the chance to

comment on that – but I have to go a little further


Go ahead!

In 2005, my family and I started a second

career so to speak in the solar industry. We saw

the chance to earn good money in this booming

industry. For 7 years, we have been working in

the solar industry in Spain and may well have

become the largest solar installation company of

its kind in Europe with at times up to 200


Wow! And you didn't work as showmen

during these years?

Yes, I would now that I have the opportunity.

My family and I are sorry that prestigious showman

firms to this day have blocked sites with

false applications for allegedly new 100 m tower

attractions – to our disadvantage – without a

construction like that currently being built.

And if somebody hits the 100 m mark?

First, with our giant gorilla on the tip, we are

currently the tallest mobile Freefall Tower – that’s

a fact. Secondly, what many of our competitors do

not know is that Funtime has had the construction

technology and method of its Freefall Towers as

well as another 50 variations of them protected by

patent and that they will not tolerate any copies.

Therefore, nobody should do any experiments

that could no longer be solved. Third, our construction

is designed for being able to outdo any

height heralded. And I am explicitly not talking

about tips or poles but complete tower sections!

And that’s all there is to say about this topic. My

question to the organisers is if another 5 or 10

metres in height are really important or decisive?

With the height already reached now a couple of

metres more may hardly be recognised.

Another two events have now been added

to the tour schedule already fixed some time


Yes, that’s right. We will now build up our

Mega King Tower’ also at the Stoppelmarkt in

Vechta and at the Christmas Market at the ‘Alexa’

Centre in Berlin-Mitte at the end of the season. ■

Jekyll & Hyde

Ever since 2012 the Paderborn showman –

touring several gastronomic operations

together with his wife – has nurtured the wish for a

ride attraction, more precisely for a propeller

attraction. After repeated talks, Bethel Thelen

decided that this type of KMG construction fulfilled

all the requirements that are

important to him: It is a

compact, spectacular

major ride on one transport


However, due to well-filled

order books at KMG, the

delivery date could be

scheduled only for the

spring of 2014, giving the

Thelen family some peace

and quiet in which to

embrace the new


The new “Jekyll and Hyde”

theme was perfectly realized by

BB Decorateurs. The attraction is

to provide fun and high spirits



Details of the

construction designed by BB


during the speedy ride that

soars up to a height of 40

metres. The overall visual

image of the towering attraction

is refreshingly different. The

Propeller has been painted in

deep green, blue and lilac

colours, giving it an elegant

and prominent appearance.

The painted settings feature

perfectly realized scenes from

the film of the same name. The

mast is dominated by “Big Ben”

and is a real eye catcher, just as

the classic phone box and the

six lanterns in the station area.

Initially there were plans to

purchase an original English

telephone box, however, due to its weight of about

800 kg, Thelen had a carpenter build a model

instead. This resulted in a weight reduction of

about 600 kg for a phone box that proved almost

identical in appearance. As the cast-iron lanterns

were also too heavy, new ones were made of cast

aluminium, weighing just a fraction of the original

lanterns. The LED screens on top of the paybox

were built by the SAZ Media firm. The letterings and

spotlights were fitted out with LEDs with changing

colours accompanied by the matching sound from

a sound system from the Hoffman firm. Fire and fog

effects surprise passengers and spectators alike

during every ride. “Jekyll and Hyde”, which has

been built according to the latest DIN standards,

has been successfully approved by TÜV Süd. This

season, the attraction will be presented at, among

other venues, Kevelaer, Menden, Halver, Gevelsberg

and Eschwege.



“Predator” première at the

Frühjahrsbend in Aachen

With the “Predator” from the

Löffelhardt family, a spectacular

major ride has now returned to

the fairgrounds. The comeback

of the ride, built by the Sorani &

Moser firm, which once was

known under the names “Transformer”,

“Star Gate” and “Star

Trip”, was enthusiastically awaited

at the Bend in Aachen. The

Kirmes & Park Revue interviewed

Reiner Löffelhardt about

his newly purchased ride.


Our son Sandro was almost crazy about this ride,

and we knew that it was being sold.

Text & Photos: Michael Petersen

Reiner and Manuela


What were your experiences at the appearance

in Aachen?

Visitors stopped in front of the ride, watched the

spectacular ride experience high up in the skies, and

long queues formed in front of our paybox. We are highly

satisfied with the public’s reception at the Öcher Bend.

How did the purchase of this heavy ride

attraction actually come about?

What condition was the ride in when you

purchased it?

Quite dismal! As it is now well-known, the construction

had been decommissioned for some time

and had a number of shortcomings. We were well

aware of this. Together with the Dröge firm, we

examined the ride and then decided to buy it.

When exactly was that?

In the spring of 2013 we made the deal with the

Lemoine/Ernst family, and in the summer we transported

the construction to our property.

What changes were made?

The centre trailer was a 7-axle trailer. We reconstructed

the sub frame into a 4-axle trailer suited

to hauling by lorry as an articulated vehicle, so that

relocating the ride requires only three transport

vehicles now. But that was by no means all – the ride

was almost completely rebuilt with the focus being on

the electrical equipment, which was completely renewed

by the Dröge firm. Moreover, all the motors,

bearings and gears were overhauled or replaced. The

gondolas were completely overhauled and the locking

devices on the restraints were renewed before everything

was newly painted. You may well call it a

complete technical reconstruction.



“Predator” details

and in action

Is there any drawback?

Yes, transporting the ride still requires a special

road permit.

Who is responsible for the design?

The draft is by Konstantin Krenek, who is also

responsible for its effective realisation. We deliberately

chose printed foil, as it has a number of advantages

over paintwork.

What about the backflash?

Yes, we did it ourselves, installing the latest LED


Unfortunately, it has not yet been completed – we

simply have not managed that yet.

Have you succeeded in putting together a good

tour schedule for your première year?

Is the lighting on the backflash, paybox, and

the arms new?

Yes, we are highly satisfied. Our next venues will be

at Neuwied, Aschaffenburg, Würzburg, and Crange. ■




Ewald Schneider twice –

father and son

The towers literally reach for the

sky: After already attaining a

height of 66 metres, the next step

was the 80-metre mark. Now the

magic 100 metre goal is to be

reached! Ewald Schneider announced

the novelty “Hangover”,

which is to be introduced

to the fairground circuit this

season. In an interview on the

occasion of the Nürnberg Frühlingsfest,

he revealed details to

the Kirmes & Park Revue for the

very first time.

How crazy do you have to be to take on such

a risky venture?

Couldn't the Maurer Söhne firm also build a

100-metre tower?

Text: Helmut Bresler

Photos: Helmut Bresler, Heiko Schimanzik

Ewald Schneider (grinning): Certainly it's a risky

venture – but nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Along with trust in God, a good family, and a little bit

of luck, with a little bit of craziness all helps!

When actually did the decision begin


In late summer last year. The final decision was

made in autumn.

Have you continued to push on with the two

new 80-metre towers?

I wouldn't say pushed, but they were the driving

force behind our hitting the 100-metre mark now. By

the way as the first transportable ride worldwide.

Many people were surprised by your choice

of abc Rides as manufacturer …

I can understand that. But Willy Walser is at abc

Engineering. He worked some 15 years at Intamin

and knows the ins and outs of Freefall Tower technology.

He is a true “Gyro Gearloose”. We now want to

turn the idea into a success story together.

Certainly – no question about it! Cooperation

with the Munich company has always worked very

well, and I remain true to the ‘Power Tower 2’.

Do you want to tour with two large towers?

I don’t, it's more the family. My son Ewald grew

up with the attraction and knows every nut and bolt.

In the future, he will be operating the ‘Power Tower 2’

– and the parents will give him all the support he

requires, if necessary.

Hangover translates as “Kater” or ‘Katerstimmung’,

or possibly ''Absturz' (drop) in

German. Who came up with the name?

Well, it has to be acknowledged that the US

feature film trilogy of the same name was very successful!

The drop is included in our programme, and after a

ride on the attraction, there will certainly be visitors with

a queasy feeling in their stomach. My adult children had

the appropriate flash of inspiration for the name.

Going up 100 metres into the sky in a rotating

gondola sure provides for a beautiful view. This is

already well known. But what are the additional

two special effects that visitors are in for?


[Laughing]: There is much speculation going on

about our two special effects. OK then. First: There

are no shoulder restraints locking the passengers in.

There are only lap bars. Shoulders and torso are

unobstructed. Second: At the highest point, there is

a mechanical irritation causing a surge of adrenaline

in every passenger. You don't see it, but you feel it –

just before the freefall!

Where do you want to start?

Initially my optimistic guess was the Düsseldorf

Rheinkirmes. But perhaps I was a little bit too quick

off the mark. Now I think it may well be in autumn or

winter. The première is planned for this year; in other

words in 2014!

Currently, I reckon with eight transport vehicles

for the construction alone.

Technical Data?

Ground measurements 23 x 23 metres. The

gondola accommodates 27 passengers, and the

complete construction meets the DIN EN 13814

standard requirements.


The latest LED standard with a special programme

for brilliant light.

Investment volume?


Aren’t you tempted by the Oktoberfest?

I would be pleased if my 'Power Tower 2' will

once again appear at the Wiesn. But I don’t think the

Wiesn needs a new tower sensation every year. Both

towers – Goetzke’s 'Skyfall' and my 'Power Tower 2'

– have their specific visitors and offer different


(Taking a deep breath): At the moment, costs

have reached about €3 million.

Playing with the public is the big strength of

the 'Power Tower 2', especially with your wife

Christina making announcements over the

microphone. What will it be like at the new


You can build up the new tower in two

variations, can’t you?

Yes, as an 80-metre version or as a 100 metre

version, depending on the organizer's request and

the general conditions at the event.

How is the build-up done – with a large

mobile crane?

There are two possibilities, either by mobile

crane or with the hydraulic construction system.

We will continue this form of dialogue. Our

guests love it – the more individual the better. That is

to say, we not only haul the passengers up, provide

them with a magnificent view, and release them

again; we play with them! A little bit of theatre is

simply a must. After all, the term showman comes

from ‘making a show’. Therefore, we will continue to

offer a show, and one acted out at the highest level

– 100 metres! ■

Project “Hangover”: up until now

not much more than this

announcement has been revealed

What is the organisers’ reaction to the new


They are curious and ask a lot of questions. I

am pleased with their interest and find that the

'Power Tower 2' is still considered a crowd puller.

Who will be responsible for the artistic

design and do all the artwork?

One of the best in this sector - the Düsseldorf

artist Maciej Bernhardt. Initially, our favourite was

Klaus Hriesik from afaw in Bremen. However, he

could not incorporate the ideas and expectations of

our family, so that’s why it did not work out.

How many transport vehicles are required?

Bruch’s “Spinning Racer”

in Aachen

“Willy der Wurm” (Roos)

surprised visitors with new

decoration details

Text & Photos: Michael Petersen

At Easter and in August the Öcher Bend is celebrated

in Aachen. “Öcher Bend” – what does that

actually mean? “Öche” is dialect form for Aachen,

and “Bend” means “large meadow”. The Frühjahrsbend

2014 was celebrated from 19 th April to 5 th May.

In the last few years, the quality of the Volksfest has experienced

a considerable upward trend in its overall

quality, and the Sommerbend - somewhat weaker in

earlier years - has significantly improved. The organiser

has succeeded in contracting attractive large

rides, such as the “Teststrecke”, for Aachen. The Bend

fairground has a very good infrastructure with paved

walkways. In earlier years, walkways were deliberately

laid out in a circular course with many top-end and

corner sites, and it was a pleasure to visit the

appealingly designed fairground. A couple of years

ago, a centre row was integrated into the course, and

the organiser talked of

an open layout of the

fairground. Actually, no

showman wants to

build up their attraction

in the centre row, as

this location presents a

financial risk, especially

for concession stalls.

Showmen have had to

struggle in this row also

in Aachen. This year,

the centre row was not

occupied by a Ferris

Wheel, but by the

“Spinning Racer”

coaster as a crowd puller. This time, the Bend was

prominently occupied, and with the “Predator” from

Löffelhardt visitors could also enjoy a ride première.

The fairground was skilfully laid out, and another site,

unfavourable for concession stalls, benefited by the

placement of the dodgem track from Grass. It seems

that the organiser in Aachen is capable of learning

from experience, accepting the showmen’s criticism

and acting accordingly. This time, the “Movie Star”

Ferris Wheel from Henschel made its rounds directly

adjacent to the main entrance. Further attractions built

up were Loosen’s dodgem track, Musik Express (Milzv.d.Bosch),

“Artistico” (Köhrmann), “Gladiator” (Kriek),

Lemoine’s “Mäuse Circus”, the “Volare” Wave-Swinger

(Blume), “High Impress” (Oberschelp), “Circus

Circus” (Bruch-Gründler), “Fantasy Drive” (Heinen),

“Kristall Palast” (Sturm), “Willy der Wurm” (Roos),

“Piraten Fluß” (Heitmann-Schneider), “Nessy” (Markmann),

“Avenger” (Heinen) and “American Swing”

(Schäfer). Two family days, a Ladies Day and other

events attracted the visitors to the fairground also on

weekdays, and the event was finished off with the fireworks

display on the final Monday. By the way, the fireworks

day turned out to be a strong-turnover day for

the showmen. Aachen has a new problem however;

there are hardly any car parks in the direct vicinity of

the Bend fairground. The spacious area at the railway

station is no longer available due to reconstruction

measures. At the time of our visit on Family Day,

queues of vehicles with potential visitors from

Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands fought their

way through the jammed streets all around the fairground.

It remains to be seen how this problem can be

solved. Frankly speaking, this can only be done with

shuttle buses from a large car park.




Impressions of the

Braunschweig Frühjahrsmasch

Text & Photos:

Uwe Holzmann

In Braunschweig, the traditional Frühjahrsmesse

was held from 28 th March to 13 th April


The occupation could not have been more

balanced for an event this size. The Ferris Wheel,

coaster, Ghost Ride, Walkthrough construction,

and a Simulator were joined by the major ride,

Swing, as well as the Breakdancer, Schlittenfahrt,

Musikexpress, a chain ride, a dodgem track, and

the younger visitors were able to enjoy a kiddie

track ride, Jet Ride, kiddie carousel and a Bungee

construction. All this was rounded off by snack

booths, shooting galleries, games and numerous

confectionary stalls. After disastrous results at the

Braunschweig fair events due to adverse weather

conditions last year – ice and frost at the Frühjahrsmesse,

and a flood and heavy rain at the Masch in

summer – the showmen’s expectations were high,

and in warm and sunny spring weather throughout

the first opening week satisfying turnover could be

reached. Unfortunately, the Sunday half-way

through the event was “wiped out”, as due to the

explosive football derby of Eintracht Braunschweig

against their rival Hannover 96, the Schützenplatz,

located in the vicinity of the Eintracht stadium, and

the entire area had to be cordoned off and

secured by thousands of policemen due to

expected football hooliganism. As the expected

riots did not materialize (and Eintracht had won),

the showmen at the Frühjahrsmesse were the real

losers on that Sunday. The second opening week

could not make up for losses incurred and moreover

suffered from a lot of rain, so that too few

visitors enjoyed the attractive Crazy Mouse

(Ahrend), Booster

Maxxx (Hoefnagel-

Denies), Rocket

(Weber), Aqua

Velis (Hofmann), or


(Rasch), but

maybe took a

round in the Ferris

Wheel (Kröker), a

ride in the “Jaguar-

Express” (Ahrend),

or the “Astro-Liner

X1” Rocket (Meier),

or enjoyed delicious

roasted almonds

from Dannehl,

a Thuringia Bratwurst from Becker, or a cold

drink in the cosy beer garden of Berweke’s Weinstube.




The Herford Osterkirmes

on the Freiheit-fairground

“Musik Express 3000”

(Spangenberger) in Kehl

Text & Photos: Michael Petersen

The Osterkirmes in Herford (19 th to 27 th April)

was advertised with an unusual poster motif,

that did not focus on the type of event, but

gave the “Auf der Freiheit” venue in large

letters. Moreover, the poster showed candy

floss with the slogan “made in heaven” and

finally in small print the date and “Volksfest

in Herford”.

The nine-day Osterkirmes in Herford has

established itself in the heart of the city, on the

“Auf der Freiheit” street. Including build-up and

dismantling the city-centre main street is closed

to road traffic for two weeks. This is quite unusual

and proves the attachment of the city authorities

to the local showmen. Both entrances were

decorated with large Easter eggs, Easter

bunnies, and flowers, but the entrance area at

Stephansplatz was somewhat “obstructed” by

the “Breakdance” from Noack. Visitors were led

up to the backflash of the ride – a layout mistake

that was certainly avoidable. Positively noticeable

were the many seating possibilities on the

fairground. Benches decorated with flowers

invited the visitors to linger and enjoy themselves

in several locations and were very well received.

The Ferris Wheel from Cornelius and the

“Around the World” chain ride (v.d. Beek) were

contracted as main attractions. The fairground

wound along Freiheit in the direction of Gänsemarkt

like a great worm. In addition to the aforementioned

main attractions, the dodgem track

from Küchenmeister, Becker’s Simulator, the

“Ghost” (Burghard), Musik Express (Noack/

Steuer), Ruppert’s “Frisbee” and the “Shaker”

Miami (Fick) awaited visitors. On the Gänsemarkt

people were able to admire and experience a

Switchback from 1938 making its rounds, and

Willy Fellerhoff’s “Fahrt ins Blaue” quickly turned

out to be a crowd puller for fans of nostalgic

rides. Moreover, the younger fair visitors enjoyed

a free Punch and Judy show. The stage programme

was well worth seeing, and between six

and eight entertainment programmes were

offered every day. The Osterkirmes was open

daily from 2 p.m., and Wednesday was the

designated Family Day with reduced prices. A

fair flyer with information on the fair, the ride sites,

car parks and stage programme rounded off the

advertising measures.

A harmonious mixture of ride and Funhouse

attractions awaited the public at this year’s

Ostermarkt held from 19 th to 27 th April.

This year, the Theo Hahn firm from Schwanau organised

the Easter market for the 62nd time. The new

“Rio” Funhouse (Dietz) occupied the top-end site

opposite Spangenberger’s “Musik Express 3000”.

Also new this year was the “Ocean Drive” dodgem

track from the organiser. Also built up for the first

time was the “Show Time” from Haas, presenting the

public hot fire tricks for free. The “Panoramica”

Ferris Wheel from the Boos brothers provided the

visitors with a view as far as neighbouring France.


Rides presented once again were the “Free

Style” Swing (Agtsch) and the “Breakdance”

from Zöllner. They were joined by Kollmann’s

“Magic”, the Wave-Swinger from

Kurze, a Pony Ride (Bügler), and a Miami


The designated Family Day on Thursday

was once again very well attended. On this

day there were also many guests from

France as the shops and schools in neighbouring

Strasbourg were closed in the

afternoon. Most of the guests combined

their shopping trip also with a prolonged

stroll across the fairground. This year, the

fireworks display on the second Saturday

was held half an hour earlier as a heavy

thunderstorm was forecast and the

organiser did not want to present the

visitors with the pyrotechnic spectacle to

the accompaniment of thunder and lightning

and in pouring rain.

This year, the Paderborn

Maspernplatz once again transformed

in a colourful ‘fair mile’

from Easter Saturday 19 th April to

27 th April.

The fairground is adjacent to the

city centre and directly opposite a

large car park that is also used by

fair visitors. This year, parking

there turned out to be quite difficult,

however. On Easter Saturday,

the city authorities held the long

Easter race for which parts of the

city centre and the city centre ring

were closed to road traffic. As start

and finish were in the direct

vicinity of the fairground, most of

the car parks were occupied by the

cars of the participants in the

Easter race.

This year, a ride première was celebrated at the Lunapark,

where the local showman Bethel Thelen presented

his new “Jekyll & Hyde” Propeller for the first

time. The Lunapark on the Maspernplatz was once

again laid out in a classic circuit course with a cross

row and Klünder’s “Katz & Maus” built up in the

entrance area in close proximity to the Propeller. Other

rides presented were the “Breakdance” (Dreher-Vespermann),

Musikexpress (Schneider/ Krause), the

dodgem track from Petter and Gerste’s recently

purchased “Hot Fly” Miami. Moreover, the “Paderborner

Pferdekarussell”, now making its rounds under

the management of the Noack family, provided a

nostalgic flair, and the Funhouse sector was represented

by Hartmann’s “Time Factory” and Eisenhauer’s

“Hippie Trip”. On Wednesday visitors were

enticed by a three-hour Happy Hour event, when it was

“pay once - ride twice” from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., and on

Friday evening a fantastic fireworks display illuminated

the Paderborn skies.

up as a replacement ride –

and was a big success

The “Musik Palast” from

Jacob in Erfurt

As part of the Erfurt Altstadtfrühling

marking the

beginning of the open-air

season on the Domplatz of

the capital city of Thuringia,

the traditional Frühlingsvolksfest

was held

from 5 th to 21 st April.

More than 50 showmen built

up their attractions at the

start of the new season. On

a front of almost 700 metres

the event with rides and

concession stalls in a spring

décor once again provided

a special flair in front of the

setting of the cathedral and

Severiekirche church. This year, the organiser, the

Sachgebiet Märkte und Stadtfest der Kulturdirektion,

received more than 300 applications

from which more than 50 attractions were chosen

for the event. New for Erfurt were the “Magic” from

Meyer & Sohn, the brand new Walkthrough construction

“Chaos Airport” (Haberkorn) and the

“Super Tower” (Mölter). Rides presented were

Hahnemann’s Ghost ride, the “Musik Palast”

(Jacob), the “Street Style” (Mölter), the “Die goldenen

50er” Switchback (Stoll), the “High

Explosive” coaster (Vorlop), the dodgem track

from Krebs, and Kirchner’s “Flying Circus”. Contracted

as top attraction was the “Mach 5” Booster

(de Vries-Harms) which, effectively placed in front

of the cathedral steps, was to plunge its passengers

head first into the fun from a height of 55

metres. This did not happen though, due to

missing test certificates at the TÜV inspection. As

the missing documents could not be obtained at

short notice, the major ride had to be dismantled

from Tuesday during the first opening week. The

“Extrem” propeller (Mölter) stepped in as a

replacement at short notice, was built up on

Friday morning, approved by the municipal Office

for Public Construction, and whirled its first

passengers through the air punctually at 2 p.m.

The Propeller quickly turned out to be a fullyfledged

replacement ride. Long queues formed in

front of the paybox throughout the event, and on

peak days the ride was virtually besieged. The

younger visitors were able to enjoy the “Super-8-

Schleife” (Malfertheiner), the “Piraten-Rutsche”

(Schultze & Söhne), Stoll’s kiddie carousel, a Jet

Ride (Bang), the “Märchenbahn” (Kirchner) and a

Galloper (Volklandt). They were joined by

numerous snack and beverage booths, sweets

and ice cream booths, Continental pick stands,

and further games of chance and skill. The occupation

of the fairground was appealing and

(apart from the required emergency routes) without

any gaps. On Friday 4 th April at 6.30 p.m. an

ecumenical showman church service was held at

the dodgem track, accompanied by the “Heavens

Garden” gospel choir. On Saturday at 3 p.m. the

event was opened by Mayor Andreas Bausewein

at the market entrance. The market was open

daily from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. – apart from Saturdays,

Sundays and public holidays, when the

rides made their rounds as early as 11 a.m. On

Good Friday the fair remained closed. And

Wednesdays were the designated family days


with reduced prices at all ride attractions. At

Easter, the Easter bunny appeared on Domplatz

to distribute 1,000 surprises to the children, and

from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. the “Hoppelband” played

lively Dixieland rhythms. Despite a colourful

mixture of thrill and fun, as well as an extensive

campaign advertising the event, overall visitor

attendance was low due to poor weather. After a

rather modest start, the event did not really gain

momentum at Easter. While a couple of participating

showmen were quite satisfied with their

results, others left greatly disappointed. ■

It was a fantastic Palmkirmes (4 th to 13 th April)

with many novelties, a successful première, very

good visitor attendance and adequate results for

the participating showmen.

The advertising campaign was almost completely

focussed on the première of the new 80 metre Freefall

Tower from the Andreas Zinnecker family. Even

the posters showed a Freefall Tower. That was quite

a risk, as there are often delays in delivery with

novelty attractions. At no point in time, communication

between the organiser and the Zinnecker

family left any doubt that the Freefall Tower

première would take place in Recklinghausen.

Poster advertising was particularly noticeable as

there was no competition with a circus this year. The

Palmkirmes does not only thrive on local fair visitors,

but about 1 million guests are also enticed from

throughout the entire Ruhr region. Advertising on the

internet is of steadily increasing importance. An upto-date

website and being present on social networks

seems to be indispensable these days.

Interestingly, photos were already posted showing

the departure of the Freefall Tower transports in

Austria. Already in the early morning hours on the

Sunday prior to the opening, a number of fair fans

arrived in Recklinghausen, impatiently waiting for

the arrival of the vehicles. In the end, the arrival and

the build-up of the tower evolved into a real event

the Zinnecker family would rather have done without.

When the vehicles had been positioned on the

originally allocated site, there was a surprising

change of location. At the last second, the fairground

director had learnt that the ground had not

been sufficiently compacted after sewer system

works. As a result, it was not possible to build up the

tower at the allocated site. That's the reason the

tower had to be built up on the circuit course in the

immediate vicinity of the Ferris Wheel.

The layout of the fairground was compelling this year.

The oversized security thoroughfares criticised last

year were considerable narrowed. Only the southern

entrance made an uninviting impression. True, the

Wave-Swinger had been moved further to the

entrance area, but the entrance was still too wide,

thus providing a look behind the scenes.

Also interesting was the close proximity of the

“Voodoo-Jumper” and the “Shake & Roll”. Placing

the once again approved Galloper at the fork between

the “Spuk” Ghost Ride and the “Breakdance”

proved very effective. The few top-end sites were

perfectly occupied and the uninviting gaps between

the attractions had almost disappeared. More

changes were not possible as fire and construction

rules had to be met. Security comes before visual

appearance. Nevertheless an almost perfect

solution was found due to negotiations and on-site

inspections. As is now tradition, the Palmkirmes was

opened at the “Dorfwirt” Bruno Dreßen's establishment.

Just as has been the case in the last few

years, business was rather slow on Friday afternoon,

gaining momentum only in the evening hours

before the opening fireworks display. In ideal

weather, results were good to very good on the

weekends, they were rather modest on the family

day much to the showmen’s surprise, and the

remaining weekdays were tolerable with regard to

revenue. All in all, coming to Recklinghausen has

once again proven worthwhile for almost all the

showmen. It was fun to visit the newly laid out Palmkirmes

and to experience the many new features.

The Palmkirmes will not be able to maintain a high

standard of novelties, though. However, this is not

necessary; two or three novelties and a couple of

relocations is enough.

The Berlin Frühlingsfest held by the Showman

Association on the central fairground on Kurt-

Schuhmacher-Damm from 28 th March (until 21 st

April) was prominently occupied.

In addition to the “Wilde Maus”, “Juwel” Ferris Wheel,

“Eclipse”, “Melodie Star”, “Jet Force”, “Breakdance”,

“Tanz der Vampire”, “Labyrinth” and the dodgem track,

providing fun for teenagers and adults, there were also

a number of attractions for the younger visitors in

addition to an ample selection of games booths,

Continental pick stands and gastronomic operations.

With the ball gun (Andre Welte), concession stall

(Sipkema), arcade machine (Müller) and the “Beverly

Hills” Pusher (Barthel), as many as four operations

were inaugurated at the Spring Festival. The “Zirkus

des Horrors” also built up on the fairground attracted

additional visitors to the Volksfest (especially on weekdays),

just as did the three flea markets held on the

Sundays. The weekends and the kiddie days were very

well attended and resulted in most of the some 60

showmen being well satisfied with their good to very

good financial results.

Railway station Deggendorf, a sunny

Saturday in the late afternoon. The train

from Zweisel arrives, hopelessly overfilled.

Get in there? No problems, everybody

is getting out in good humour and

dressed in Lederhosen or Dirndls,

wandering towards the 64 th VdK-Frühlingsfest

on the festival grounds.

This was the start of the first weekend of the

of the 11-day event at the beginning of April.

The large festival tent from Widmann and the

Weißbier tent had to be closed in the evening

due to overcrowding. However this promising

start to the season didn't continue. There

were quiet week days, a disappointing

Family Day and an average finale due to the

Deggendorf Frühlingsfest, always taking

place around Labour Day on the 1 st May,

being put forward due to the opening of the

State Horticultural Show.

The Ferris Wheel "Orion 2" from Drliczek was

chosen as the large attraction for the event,

having made its première here 20 years ago.

Further attractions were the "Top Spin 2"

(Kollmann), Autoskooter Miami "Super

Gaudi" (Sonntag), "Star Dancer" (Störzer),

chain ride (Thalkofer und Söhne), Schunkler

"Bavaria Dance" (Thalkofer), as well as the Twister

"Hawaii-Swing" (Neigert). The previously announced

sensation on the list which was to celebrate its prepremière,

Störzer's ride novelty "Black Out", didn't

happen, much to the disappointment of the owner. He

actually had wanted to correct any possible teething

problems beforehand, and then proceed well prepared

from Deggendorf on his première tour. Alex

Zinnecker stepped in with his Swing "Street Fighter".

Werner Siller (78) is 2 nd Chairman of the VdK Deggendorf,

and has been organiser for many years. Parallel,

he also looks after the Homepage of the association

drumming up business, and he also makes regular

appearances at the VdK raffle ticket booth. Preparations

for next year are already underway and he has

also conceived a consumer exhibition without an

entrance fee. His word and his experience carry a lot

of weight. In short – he's a bundle of energy living for

"his" event, is an idealist and an excellent candidate

for an official tribute at a state or federal level. The VdKlocal

committee of Deggendorf has no competition in

Bavaria with around 3,600 members; on a national

level the largest social community has 1.7 million

members. The VdK-Frühlingsfest of today came into

existence due to a small garden and grill party. It has

developed well, and these days, has around 50 show-

Danube. 700,000 visitors from Bavaria as well as

neighbouring countries such as Austria and the Czech

Republic are expected. And a Ferris Wheel is also

present there. Some bad news: the Deggendorf Volksfest

in summer will not take place due to the Horticultural

Show. Apparently there is no replacement area

and the show gastronomy should – according to the

municipality decision – have no competitor. The new

"Deggendorf Donaufest" is to begin in 2015 for which

operators are requested to supply clearly defined

attractions such as for example a wooden Ferris

Wheel, fairytale carousel, or a steam railway. ■

stand shortly before destruction. The latest example

is the “Sinksenfoor“ in Antwerp. Following

legal action by real estate investors the

traditional fair has been driven out of the inner

city and will be held on a railway property far

away from the city-centre statting in 2015. The

Belgian showmen demonstrated at the end of

March 2014 in Antwerp for the retention of the


A comment from ESU President Albert Ritter

(photo) regarding the safeguarding of the

traditional fairground culture in Europe.

“Volksfests have been a permanently established

part of European culture for centuries. They speak

through their multi-dimensional offers for almost

all segments of the population. A strong emotionality

is connected to the leisure time Volksfests.

With all due right, European politicians speak of

the Volksfests as a “traditional cultural possession“,

which should be protected. They praise the economic

strength of the events and applaud the engagement

of the showman. Action however

should suit the words. Those who feel committed

to the care of tradition, customs and European cultural

sentiment should not allow – as the example

of “Sinksenfoor“ in Antwerp shows – the economical

ambitions of a few real estate speculators

to be over and above the interests of hundreds of

thousands of fairground fans.

The European Showman Union is one of the oldest

European professional organisations. It has fought

for 60 years for the future of the Volksfests and the

interests of the showman. We will not allow the

traditional festivals to simply disappear from the

map. And this is not just all about the securing of

fun and amusement for the citizens, but also

about the retention of workplaces in thousands of

small and middle sized companies. We showmen

depend on functioning festivals in order to live. We

can't simply change to another profession when

the fairground is in a state of collapse.

Great emphasis is put on keeping old traditions

alive in Europe. The showmen are the ones who

keep the tradition of the Volksfests and Christmas

markets alive – and they also finance them. There

is hardly a fair or Christmas market where showmen

don't have to pay their fees to operate. That

means that all the costs that come about through

a Volksfest are not paid out from a culture pot or

budget, but funded by the showmen down to the

last cent. Showmen don't want a subvention, however

the framework conditions have to be right.

The displacement or relocation of the Volksfests in

Europe means an employment ban for the showmen

at the same time.

We showmen will continue to fight and put up

resistance for the retention of the traditional European

Volksfest culture. And the fact that this resistance

is worth it is shown by a current example in

Germany. In Jena recently, the development of the

festival area has been stopped after two-thirds of

the locals voted against the steps in a survey. The

public relation works of the German Showman

Association in cooperation with both of the Thuringia

showman associations played a significant

role in this happy development.

In a strong association such as the European

Showman Union we showmen can successfully

resist against the destruction of the Volksfests.

“Unity gives strength!“

The European Showman Union is fighting for

carousels to be able to continue to turn in Europe in

the future.

International meeting of the European Show-women Union

Thank you for the support

At the end of the meeting the President of the

In response to an invitation from the European

Show-woman Union (ESFU) show-women from

Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, England,

Sweden and Finland met up in Paris on the 7 th

and 8 th of March 2014. A colourful programme

had been prepared for the “Rendezvous in

Paris“ which thrilled participants.

The highlight of the two-day meeting in the

French capital was a visit to the showman museum

“Musée des Arts Forains”. The world famous

collection that belongs to the owner of the des

Pavillons de Bercy, Jean Pauls Favand, harbours a

unique choice of fairground attractions such as the

historic carousel, concert organs, and rides. Director

Jeans Paul Favand personally showed the

guests through exhibition rooms after a heartfelt

welcome. The unique exhibition made the hearts

of the show-women beat a little faster. Additionally

Jean Pauls Favand had many anecdotes and

stories to tell about the exhibits.

After refreshments of champagne and canapés

the guests enjoyed an exclusive tour through the

warehouse of the museum – which is a museum

in itself – where under normal circumstances visitors

are not allowed entry. Whether a comfortable

togetherness in the Café Barjot in Quatier Bastille,

a private boat ride on the Seine, a wine tasting with

fine wines and champagnes, or a visit to the Eiffel

Tower and the artist quarter in Montmartre... the

women's day in Paris left nothing to be desired and

gave participants enough opportunity to have

talks within a colleague's circle.

A ride on Liseberg's

new Looping Coaster

promises very intensive

airtime in parts

When the layout was first

introduced almost two years

ago for the first time, one could

already surmise that it would

be an ambitious project. However

that what went into operation

in April 2014 exceeded

even the highest expectations:

"Helix" is currently and most

probably the best “classical”

looping coaster in Europe and

catapults – in every sense of

the word – both the operator

and manufacturer into new

Since time immemorial, with his attractions

Liseberg has understood the art of how to be

noticed. Directly at the gates to the city, the in

1923 established amusement park is an ultra

large and unusual salutation to all Göteborg visitors

and those returning home. This has been so

for many decades, even if the appearance of the

park repeatedly changed over the years. However

there has never before been such a lasting

and decisive change as this year! And all simply

because the reserved looking green-coloured

new looping attraction is highly visible due to its

immense size from the autobahn facing the

mountain, having an elongation of around 300

metres, and with that utilizing almost complete

Liseberg, the nearly 40 metres high hill after which

the theme park was named.

When entering the park entrance, visitors don't

notice anything initially – not acoustically and not

optically. The over 1,300 metres long "Helix" with

a height difference of more than 50 metres is hidden

behind the trees and adapts to the park's



And one can hardly hear the trains anyway, and

maybe "Helix" is even the quietest large coaster

in the world. But still waters run deep ... or in this

case, surprisingly different.

It's quite logical that the manufacturer is naturally

excited by his own product. Anyway, for Roland

Mack a ride on "Helix" on the eve of the official

park opening, it was definitely something very

special: "It was my first roller coaster ride after my

accident last year when I broke 12 ribs. As a precaution

I went to the doctor this morning, but

everything is alright. That speaks for itself

doesn't it?" he said, before taking part in the first

official coaster ride on the morning of the 26 th April

2014. And in actual fact it does speak for itself,

because despite the many inversions and track

layout that doesn't allow for any breathing space,

a ride on the "Helix" is a first class riding delight.

The exit from the station

leads immediately into the first

drop with a subsequen

interesting ride figures on



With us you are in the first row!

An exklusive interview mit Park

Manager Andreas Veilstrup-Andersen:


and on our youtube channel:


A Complex Track Layout

To write down an exact ride description on paper

is hardly possible due to the complexity of the

experience, and wouldn't do justice to real riding.

However we've made an effort just the same,

which began initially in our attempting to overcome

32 metres of height, which lies between the

entrance arch of the park and the station area.

This is possible either on foot or on a moving staircase.

We decided on the last possibility as did

most of the other park guests. Arriving at the top

are not only the waiting area for the 116 metres

tall Intamin Freefall Tower "Atmosfear" but also

that for "Helix". This appeared to be just as long

as the coaster itself and meandered and wound

through a cement-steel ensemble, which reminds

one of the very simply designed but still very

architecturally appealing buildings from star

architect Tadao Ando.

Arriving at the station area we could choose –

unfortunately a rarity these days – where we wanted

to sit, although the pull-down lap bars offer

maximum freedom in all rows. Additionally they

are slightly heightened so that even the more taller

passengers can experience the upcoming ride

with freely hanging legs. Additionally, the socalled

"Stadium Seats" are used with a higher

seating row in each car, in order to ensure an

optimal view from all seats.


And finally we take off, but what sort of surprisingly

intensive ride start is this? The 20-seat train

rolls directly into the steep 10.5 metres deep first

drop, which already supplies a terrific airtime particularly

on the back rows! There's no time to wonder

as the first inversion follows that is a type of a

somewhat slowly travelling corkscrew containing

a small hang time. A long drawn out 180° curve

to the left leads us directly to the first approximately

50 metres long acceleration course. At

high speed we enter an unusually large

corkscrew – the second highest elevation on the

ride. Following a curve and a continually intensive

reversal turn, after another curve we enter the significant

pretzel element directly, which actually is

an elongated Norwegian Loop, in other words an

Inclined Loop and subsequent Immelmann. However,

because it travels and looks like a pretzel,

this 27.5 metres high ride figure is also called that

officially by the park. And the entrance into this

ride figure is strictly speaking only a near-inversion.

That really doesn't make any difference to

the ride fun naturally, because it really does feel

like a real inversion. A further genuine inversion

on the other hand is the exit from the pretzel. And

no less spectacular, the ride continues along with

an intensive airtime hill followed by a Zero-g-Roll

or alternatively also known also as a Revolution

figure that stands us on our heads with only very

low contact pressure. A "Stengel-Dive", a strongly

inclined airtime-sequence to the side, leads into

the 360° helix, to which the coaster owes its name.

Hardly had the train reduced its speed a little, the

second launch waited behind a sharp 180° turnabout.

On the 70 metres long and 10° ascending

course we were once again catapulted at maximum

speed only to stand on our heads immediately

in the lofty heights in an Inverted Top Hat.

Following this highest point of the attraction we

climbed a second airtime hill, which can almost

be described as a monster-hump as we drop 25

metres into the depths with very intensive weightlessness.

Following a long drawn out ascending

180° curve, a nice S-curve-sequence comes

about, and another turnabout on the Liseberg

plateau leads us back to the station – but not without

an inversion for the last time, provided by a

long drawn out Heartline-Roll with an appropriately

long hang time, which is typical of

Europa-Park's "blue fire" coaster and others of this

ride series.

A Unique Ride Experience

of ride time without a pause. An endless stringing

together of different ride figures completely without

the noticeable and often disturbing trim

A view of a part of the

track course / Photo right: the

subsequent Heartline-Roll with

hang time

"Helix" offers airtime not

only on the two humps and the

reverse turn, but also in the


brakes – that's not found anywhere else! In actual

fact, both launch sections also serve as block

brakes and make the simultaneous three train operation

possible. The consistent high speed, and

not a second of boredom despite the length and

the fast succession of the various elements correspond

to the spirit of the times, as for example

also reflected in the always faster and faster film

cuts. If anything, then the continuous slight vibrations

– more in the front as the back – is noticeable

but not disturbing. But one must keep a

watch for changes during the years of operation.

“Helix” Maximizes the Topography

However there's hardly another coaster in the

world that could use the available topography

better. "Helix" almost playfully exposes the sloping

grounds, and that's the way it should always

be, and the reason why "Helix" may well serve as

a model for All-Terrain-Coasters. And so "Helix"

follows in the footsteps of the 1987 from

Zierer/BHS erected "Lisebergbanan", which with

its 1,340 metres track course has a height difference

of 45 metres.


And with all this, the relatively tranquil Liseberg

Park leads the way for the second time, in front of

other world known and occasionally financially

stronger parks, and shows how to deal best with

available local characteristics, in order to achieve

an individual and world class attraction. One

could think for example of Six Flag Magic Mountain

also “named” after its local mountain, where

unfortunately only very few new rides reflect a reaction

to the local topography. In Göteborg however

it was all done correctly and the visitor numbers

will without a doubt confirm this fact impressively.

And one can only hope that more parks are

brave enough to recognise their own strength in

order to produce a unique ride experience.

idea was scrapped in September 2011 and the

project restarted. Our new guidelines were a long

course with one or two built in launch sequences,

and for reasons of noise we wanted the main part

of the construction to be erected on the eastern

slope of the Liseberg Mountain, facing away from

our neighbours. Only few highlights of the ride

were to tower over the mountain, and the natural

height difference of the mountain was to be used

to maximum extent. And the new station area was

to erect on the site that was occupied of the

earlier 3D-cinema.

The two coasters that

have a lot in common meet up at

a number of points: the "Lisebergbanan"

(built 1987) and the

new "Helix"

Interview with Andreas Andersen

For many years you were Vice President

of the Copenhagen Tivoli and one of the driving

forces behind the erection of their huge

Floorless-Coaster from B&M. When you stepped

in as the new Park Manager at Liseberg in

Sweden in early 2011, was it already evident

that the first thing you wanted to do here was

to also realize a large coaster project?

Not directly, as my predecessor Mats Wedin

had already pushed for the development of a new

mega-coaster. Originally it was to be an 84

metres high Hyper Coaster from Mack Rides,

however due to the expected noise pollution for

residents and the less aesthetic overall effect, the

As Liseberg is open until

late in the evening during the

main season (frequently until

11 p.m.), an attractive

illumination is very important

You are an experienced Park Manager but

also a real coaster fan. What was more important

for you: a coaster from Mack Rides or

the cooperation with Werner Stengel?

One has nothing to do with the other. Following

a visit to Europa-Park it was definite quite early

that we wanted a coaster similar to “blue fire”.

However our project very quickly reached dimensions

that would have been very difficult to

realize without Stengel’s participation, as it’s a fact

that Stengel is a guarantee for first class riding

pleasure. The first sketches were developed by

Mack’s engineer Dennis Gordt, and Mack was

bringing the Stengel offices on board early

enough in order to implement such a challenging

and complicated track course in the best possible


When first layouts were released, one could

get the impression that the new coaster had a

lot in common with Intamin’s “Cheetah Hunt”:

two launches, a track near to the ground. inversions,

an out-and-back design. But “Helix”

is however quite different in nature.

We took the best elements from many

coasters, amongst them “blue fire” and “Cheetah

Hunt” in order to build something completely new.

The biggest difference is however that our

coaster looks like a tangle of spaghetti instead of

a more stretched out layout. For this reason we

don’t classify “Helix” as a Launch Coaster, but as

a Looping Coaster with launches. But we didn’t

want to use traditional loops, in fact quite the opposite.

On “Helix” passengers can even experience

airtime in the inversions!


Considerably many prominent guests from the branch at the opening among them

naturally also Roland and Michael Mack from Europa-Park, alternatively Mack Rides

With “Kanonen” from Intamin there is an

there never thoughts of extending the portfolio

the end we found that our ideas were best realizable

Now, a total of around 80,000 m 2 are

available for future expansion. This is

very comfortable for an inner-city park

such as Liseberg. Actually we are thinking

about erecting a hotel or an indoor

water park, or even both. However, we

are in the very early planning stages,

and the project could very well also take

a different direction.

Extreme drops and

extreme acceleration are

the benchmark data of the

new coaster at Holiday Park

Who would have expected it?

Recently, Holiday Park, now

under Plopsa management, had

heavily invested in the family

public with "Majaland" and

"Anno Tobak" being redesigned

into "Tabalugas Abenteuer",

clearly showing the direction

the park was going. But a new

coaster was then announced

that is anything else than a

harmless family coaster!

Van den Kerkhof and Bernd

Beltz opening the attraction and

simultaneously absolving the

first official ride

Sky Scream

Absolutely nobody expected something like "Sky

Scream", and evil tongues even maintained that

Holiday Park had erected an attraction that passes

by complete target groups. This is naturally complete

nonsense as in a park where attractions such

as "Expedition GeForce" stand and waiting times

are way over the 60-minute-mark at times, it very

much appears that "thrill" continues to have its fans,

regardless of how colourful, happy and family

amusing "Majaland" may be.

"Sky Scream" extends the ride portfolio of the

park in the Palatinate excellently. Although

somewhat lower than Intamin's "Expedition

GeForce" (Built 2011), it travels upside down

– and that at its highest point of almost 46

metres. The attraction is located at the back end of

the park on the earlier location of "Super Wirbel",

Germany's first inversion coaster in a park (built

1979), which unfortunately had to make way in

2013. "Sky Scream" is now the core of a new area

that is devoted to the world of the undead and vampires.

Very soon everything will look just as creepy

here as on the sketches and model, complete with

"Fear Snack", bakery, shop and further infrastructure,

all very necessary in the otherwise – and sorry


for the wordplay – lifeless part of the park. There's

been very little done in the area around the new

coaster for the family public, but they have already

been well served in the past years. Over 25 million

Euro has been invested in the park since the

takeover by the Plopsa-Group in 2010, the lion's

share going towards beautifying the park, and new

family attractions.

The decision for "Sky Screamer" was relatively sudden

during the IAAPA exhibition last year in November.

"As we heard the condition that the attraction

had to be operational within five months, well,

we saw that as a challenge. And it was pretty close"

admitted Jim Seay from the American manufacturer

Premier Rides. The relatively mild winter was a

little helpful in being able to introduce the new ride

to the press a few days prior to the season's start.

time, so that the complete track course can be absolved

forwards. The roll is travelled through at a

height of 45.7 metres – a manoeuvre that reminds

one a little on the roll in the lofty heights on the "Sky

Wheel" attraction from Maurer Söhne – as does the

whole ride actually if there were not the differences

of the LSM-launch and the extended course. The

train then travels towards the abyss but is slowed

down by the electromagnetic brakes – in order to

proceed slowly, actually provokingly slowly to tip

vertically. And it's here that the floodgates really

open: the vehicle group drops vertically into the

depths rotating simultaneously on the longitudinal

axis and accelerating within two seconds to a good

80 kilometres per hour speed – ride guests hang

"Sky Scream" is located

Not for Weak Nerves

A ride on the "Sky Scream" is something else. The

second installation of the ride type following "Superman

– Ultimate Flight" at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom

is really nothing for those with weak nerves.

The 12-seat car group is launched three times, first

forwards, then backwards, then forwards again.

The first forward launch is quite placid and therefore

the train just makes the climb on first quadrant

arc. Then the car rolls backwards... and all hell

breaks loose! The reverse launch really pulls the

socks off when the train is accelerated to reach

almost the peak of the non-inverting-loop.

The ride continues downwards and with a lot of pep.

The powerful LSM goes into operation for the last

happy that there are any at all. Massive negative g-

forces are followed directly by intensely positive

forces when the ride continues upwards and into

the twist in the non-inverting loop, before the train

makes its final dive and descends into the station.

The station is then travelled through by the train

completely and climbs the first quadrant arc once

again before it rolls in reverse and is braked, coming

to a halt at the loading position. Wow!

One can justifiably claim that there is no other

coaster that offers such a thrill on such a small

ground area. Even the well-versed coaster-addicted

confirms the intensity of "Sky Scream". This attraction

is definitely only for the very, very hardened

who are really into thrill moments in maximally concentrated


The decoration on the day of opening didn't go past

a temporary solution, but is understandably due to

the short time span between ordering and comple-


tion. Steve van den Kerkhof: "We are confident that

everything will look just as on the sketches and

model by the end of June at the latest". Until then

"Sky Screamer" more for thrill-purists, will serve its

guests excellently. The capacity of a good 430

passengers per hour can also be seen as very acceptable

for a construction of this type.

Sum up: Holiday Park has extended its offer for its

target group excellently with "Sky Scream". The

construction ranks in the top class of European thrill

machines, and will give real pleasure to whiteknuckle-fans.

With "Expedition GeForce", "Sky

Scream" and the "Free Fall Tower", Holiday Park

offers enough reason to travel again to Hassloch

not only for the family public, but also young

adrenalin junkies.

When all the riders are safely secured, the gondola

begins moving and offers a beautiful view of the

"Cobra" and other surrounding attractions. Approximately

halfway through, the ride passes inside a

giant tree and continues on its way, stopping above

the main entrance. Due to the sudden stop, the

gondola swings back and forth a couple of times,

and then begins to move backwards. Once inside

the tree, it stops giving the feeling that something

is not quite right. At this point, the all around speakers

produce a loud sound similar to thunder, and

the doors of the tree close, leaving the riders in total

by fans producing wind and mist and by the

storyline, the cables snap and the ropeway vehicle

In reality, the ride remains well secured inside the

giant tree and the end of the storm is marked by the

reopening of the doors and a voice yodelling, which

is the traditional Swiss way of communication

around mountain regions. Then the attraction slowly

goes back to the station.

The total ride time is approximately three and a half

minutes. At the time of copy deadline, "Mammut

Tree" was still in its test phase. After completion and

before the official opening, the park has advised

that more effects such as fog and lightning would

be added.

All in all "Mammut Tree" is a lovely and very interesting

new ride concept, and without a doubt future

constructions will be even more perfect and

equipped with further effects. Despite the minimal

theming, the giant tree is very well made and

thoroughly realistic looking. The special effects can

be quite surprising, especially as the inside of the

tree is well insulated from the outside, making it

hard for riding guests to predict what is going to

happen. For a park like Conny-Land the "Mammut

Tree" is a new attraction which will be enjoyed by a

wide range of guests, bringing this small park in the

spotlight for many amusement park enthusiasts.

Interview with Roby Gasser

Mammut Tree is the new ride at Conny Land.

It is a really innovative ride concept; can you tell

us how this idea was developed?

The original idea for the ride came directly from

Swiss Rides and in their very first concept thoughts

were of a recreation of the Matterhorn. Unfortunately,

this was way out of proportion for a park the size

of Conny-Land so we had to come up with a different

concept, and this is how the idea of the giant

tree came to life.

Let's talk for a moment about the construction

of Mammut Tree; what were the biggest

challenges you had to face?

As usual, when building a ride during the winter,

the biggest problem is to secure everything

against adverse weather conditions. This meant

that while building the tree, there had to be scaffoldings

all around it to protect it. Luckily, last winter

was better than others in the past, and with very

little of snow the work was carried out right on


At the moment Mammut Tree is still undergoing

a testing phase; has an opening date been

decided yet?

No, at the moment we still have not set an official

opening date for the ride. But as everything is

functioning without a problem and only minor adjustments

need to be made, everything will be completed


What kind of adjustments will be made?

The sequence inside the tree will be extended

and more effects will be added. There will probably

be smoke screen projections. Due to the presence

of fire and sparks flying along the walls it is not possible

to install video screens so smoke screens will

be the only possibility to show images.

Will there be more theming around the ride?

Yes, we will add some theme to the station and

around the turn-station in the parking lot.

Thank you for the interview and we wish you

a successful 2014 season.



A good coaster doesn't

apparently have to be large

for children to like it – even

the smallest coaster in the

world has managed it

A very special type of world

novelty has been present in

Germany since 2014 – and that

four times simultaneously: the

smallest coaster in the world!

The prototype of this “world

record attraction” opened in

the East German Erlebnispark

The construction is a small roller coaster that has

been adapted to the special requirements of

small children. Its height of just about two metres

is hardly higher than an adult, however for the little

ones the attractive construction appears to be

quite spectacular! One can see it in the eyes of

the kiddies when they give a twitch of joy with the

first view of "their" coaster.

Additionally they experience their first and own

coaster ride without the company of their parents

on the "Huracanito"! This is an exciting experience

that isn't so quickly forgotten and can be told to

friends in kindergarten. It's rather a pity then that

there is no Onride-Video for sale, despite the

shortness of the ride. Which parent wouldn't like

to have a professional video of their offspring on

the first coaster ride in life?

The little brother of what was opened in

2010, the 32 metres high "Euro-Fighter"

looping attraction that also came from

Gerstlauer, is the main component of the

new kiddie area that includes playground

and electric autobahn. Park Manager Erwin Linnenbach:

"We wanted an active waiting area whilst

papa is riding with the older siblings on the


The coaster with the simple oval track course

looks just as colourful and also has a similar name

to the larger "Huracan" next door! A ride begins

with the 30° steep chain lift. The 180° curve in the

more or less "lofty" height travels into the first drop.

With a top speed of 15 kilometres per hour, the

nicely designed cars travel towards the ground –

a real thrill for daring kids. However that's not all:

there is even a connecting and small airtime hill,

before the second 180° curve leads passengers

in the direction of the station. And if there's not a

long waiting queue then the operator can even

initiate a second round.

Adults however are (unfortunately) deprived of a

ride on the smallest roller coaster in the world, as

the one metre long and 60 centimetres wide

soapbox designed cars have only enough room

for one person with a maximum weight of 40 kilos.

Only children between three and eight years of

age, or alternatively with a height between 90 and

120 centimetres are allowed to partake.

Due to the really quite slow passenger changeover

with small children at the loading and disembarking

area, the maximum capacity per hour

is 60 passengers.

Nevertheless the "Kiddy Racer" appears to be

developing into a sales hit: introduced for the first

time a year ago on the Gerstlauer company

grounds, a further three structurally identical constructions

have gone into operation this year: The

Erlebnispark Steinau, Trampolino Andernach, and

the Jaderpark each purchased a "Kiddy Racer" –

all of them in comparison to the prototype at

Belantis – are self-operational. An accompanying

adult must secure the individually adjustable

restraint, close the station door, and press two

buttons simultaneously in order to start the chain

lift. In an emergency the "external operator" can

transport the car from the lift to the station backwards.

This saves personnel costs, which is very

important for small parks in particular, and for

which the "Kiddy Racer" was originally designed.

The necessary ground area for a ride selfoperational

construction (including fencing and

loading platform) is 10.5 by 6.6 metres.

Event Park GmbH is also interested in a further

construction. Erwin Linnenbach: "We would love to

have a transportable version as well, which we

could use for our events that could be transported

on a trailer without much effort, and built up

quickly and simply.”

Erwin Linnenbach is the

majority shareholder and new

General Manager of Belantis

Interview with Erwin Linnenbach

The very likable 53-year old family father Erwin Linnenbach

is considered as one of the most influential

personalities in the German private radio

branch. Two years ago, the native-born Saarland

personality ended his radio career in order to commence

something new once again. Since the 1 st

April 2014, he is the Belantis-boss.

Shortly before the new season started, you

took over management of the theme park as

majority shareholder What were the reasons

for this?

I was a shareholder of the Event Park GmbH

& Co. KG right from the beginning, which operated

Belantis, and since a number of years also the

event agency EmiR Entertainment. The only thing

was I wasn't involved actively in operation. But

after I had been in private radio for almost 25

years, I wanted to begin something completely

new; for example I would have gladly been

Manager of FC Barcelona – my childhood dream.

But it all turned out differently?

Yes. As I'm happy in central Germany and see

great potential in the Leipzig Lake District, I took

the opportunity to purchase more shares in

Belantis and became therefore the majority shareholder.

I was significantly involved in the development

of Belantis, so in a way it's always been "my"

park. I am now not only an employee Manager, but

also owner. And I'm very keen about it all. It is a

matter very close to my heart to further develop

Belantis and to lead it into the future.

In the times of private-equity-purchasing,

your personal commitment sounds very agreeable.

What however will the future bring




We have achieved much during the past 12

years, but all took its time. And also everything

around our park took longer than originally

planned, and the renaturalisation and touristic

development of the surrounding landscape

remains incomplete. However we stand before a

very deciding phase: the Leipzig Lake District is

taking shape much more and with that Belantis will

take on a special supra-regional role. Already now

the earlier surface mining area has become a

huge local recreation area. In two years time the

flooding of the large lake, the Zwenkauer See, will

have been completed, which with an area of

almost 1,000 hectares boarders in the immediate

vicinity of our property. What would make more

sense than to develop a complete tourist


So the erection of a park-own hotel is to be

expected in order to create a multiple-day


In last October, I would have answered that

we would have our own hotel in two years. However

in the interim it has been confirmed that the

largest holiday resort in the Leipzig Lake District

is to come into being. 1,600 beds alone are

already in planning. This offers a simple cooperation.

Nevertheless I could well imagine that we

could also establish our own overnight accommodation

without going into competition with a

holiday resort.

And which developments will come about

in the actual theme park?

The next step will be the long overdue

ringschluss with a very attractive ride attraction

between the North and the South American theme

worlds. Further along we want to put the original

overall theming into concrete terms, in order to

make the idea of a journey through different countries

a more intense experience.

The simple but effective

track course for children

The water only has to rise

3.5 metres to reach the planned

edge of the banks; a huge holiday

resort is planned to be

erected in the immediate nearvicinity

of Freizeit Park Belantis

were co-initiator of Belantis. How did that come


Aventura in Spain. This terrific park naturally plays

in another league, but I absolutely wanted to adapt

the theme travel here.

This ancient looking world

map is the Belantis park map

In the radio business, it is necessary to come

into contact with politicians and other important

personalities. When the gigantic 500 hectares

Karl-May-project that was already in the planning

phase had failed, there was a discussion with the

Saxon Prime Minister Prof. Kurt Biedenkopf and

personnel. More by accident than anything, the

subject came up as to why we as a private radio

group and event agency would not use our communication

strength and entertainment competence

for the operation of our own theme park. That

was in 1998.

And you took up the challenge?

Naturally as a radio man I had no idea about

theme parks, even though I'd always been closely

tied to them, having grown up near Holiday Park,

and my favourite park has always been Port-

In the newly formed German States there

wasn't any theme park at that time. Why then

of all places in an industrial wasteland and not

for example near to Berlin?

The search for a location took over a year, and

we are of the opinion that with central Germany we

made the right decision. Here we have the necessary

political and regional support and also

enough space for future expansion. Additionally

we were visionary in our thinking: what would

happen in 10 or 20 years time when the renaturalisation

was completed, an autobahn had been

built, and the lake landscape was taken on by

tourism? In those days there was nothing here except

huge surface mining cavities. Nobody could

imagine that on Europe's largest landscape remediation

site there would one day be an attractive

experience landscape – with a theme park as

a touristic beacon.

Did you consult an architectural office

specialising in theme parks?

The RSH (Radio Schleswig Holstein) also belongs

to our group, and so we had contact to

Hansa-Park. Park Manager Andreas Leicht gave

us a lot of input and a lot of advice and assistance.

Finally we contracted architect Rüdiger Renno to

undertake the feasibility study and the approval

for the reuse of the Brownfield land. Financing was

available in 2001 and already on the 5 th April 2003

we could celebrate the opening.

Thank you for the interview. We wish you a

successful journey with Belantis in the upcoming

decades also.



Abundant water battles

occur on all these types of

attractions, new however is

the extension with a somewhat

more tranquil boat ride

PortAventura is being talked

about once again this season,

because everything that the

Spanish park destination near

Barcelona tackles is s size bigger

than anywhere else: following

Europe's highest coaster

(2012) and Europe's highest

water slide (2013), in April 2014

sees the opening of the longest

boat-water battle in Europe!



Frank Lanfer

Frank Lanfer, PortAventura


With a course length of 323 metres the "Angkor:

Adventure in the Lost Kingdom" is by far the

longest construction in the category of "Splash Battles"

and "Boat Battles". The ride duration is a whole

ten minutes along the water canal, which meanders

through the imposing, artificial temple landscape of

Cambodia. General Manager Fernando Aldecoa:

"In the case of most attractions of this type the ride

course runs into a large pool, which at first glance

is completely manageable and where the

occupants can only spray each other at a maximum.

We however wanted an interactive river


And those who really want to be soaked will not be

disappointed in "Angkor" either, as following a more

or less placid boat ride through ancient temples

and typical river villages, there's a second part of

the ride: about half of the course comprises of a

strongly winding water canal with five turnabouts.

In this section there is enough cooling down

guaranteed under the Catalonian sun, as in parts

there are very close encounters with other boats as

well as with park onlookers who operate the water

cannons from the shore. Due to the abundant

theme elements that always hide a part of the track

course, these meetings are often very surprising –

and wet.


And maybe best of all is that on "Angkor" there are

no limits for the passengers. Ergo: "Here really

everybody can participate, even small children

who are too little for the ride constructions in the

neighbouring Sesame Street area! And with that

"Angkor" is a real family attraction that perfectly

rounds off the park portfolio.

Other novelties this year are a new 4D-film in "Sea

Odysea" and three new shows at the park. Additionally,

the artistic group von Cirque du Soleil will be

making guest appearances in the summer months

with its new programme "Kooza" at PortAventura

Resort – exclusively at a European theme park.

Naturally PortAventura is already casting long

shadows in the full sense of the word with its next

large project, the planned "Ferrari Land" for 2016,

about which we have already reported in depth

(see KPR 4/2014). Further details were announced

occasion of the opening of "Angkor": "Ferrari Land"

will in all probability not be a part of the Port

Aventura-Park, but be operated as a separate

theme park. Additionally the licensing contract with

Ferrari has a clause stating that no other European

theme park may erect a Ferrari-relevant area. This

way the Spanish resort secures yet another unique

selling point, which without a doubt will entice an

additional circle of customers. Fernando Aldecoa:

"We are expecting more visitors from Italy,

Germany, the Benelux countries and Scandinavia

in particular. The investment amount in Ferrari-Land

is around 100 million Euro."

The 2016 planned Ferrari

Land will not only contain

Europe's highest coaster but

also other attractions, and a

new 5-star-hotel (the only one

in a European theme park)

version of the article "PortAventura – Ferrari

units move synchronously to the flight pictures of

should: according to

rumours, the businessman

is to be listed on the stock market.

In 2007 he purchased much of the real estate of the

Merlin-portfolio in a controversial "sale and leaseback"

agreement for 622 million British Pounds, in

order to allow Merlin then to re-lease the properties

(among them for example Alton Towers, Thorpe

Park and Heide-Park). With this step Merlin Entertainments

could prove very good business figures

in a hit, and could also prepare for a successful listing

on the stock exchange, which was realised in

2013 Investor Nick Leslau also apparently wants to

profit from this wave of success. The estimated

value of Prestbury Investments is around 1.5 billion

Pounds. Whether or not Merlin intends to repurchase

its grounds again is not known. The listing

on the London stock exchange will be secured

by the Lloyd Bank, amongst others. ■

Schierenbeck's travelling construction "Black

Hole" is making a guest appearance at the Franconian

park in Geiselwind this season, which is

located between Nürnberg and Würzburg, directly

on autobahn A3.

During the Berlin Christmas Market, the Managers of

the park, brothers Oliver and Michael

Mensinger, were able to close the deal for

the dark coaster's appearance for one

season. For many years now there is an

exchange area at Geiselwind that is occupied

each year by another construction

– following the "Wilde Maus" and a

large Ghost ride, there is now the "Black

Hole". The attraction built in 1987 by

Zierer was first owned by showman

Ludewigt, but has been managed by

Peggy and Heiko Schierenbeck now for

20 years, who normally travel the 420

metres long track attraction throughout


At the end of the Bavarian school holidays

in the middle of September, the 14

metres high dome will be dismantled and

relocated at the Eisleben Wiesenmarkt.

The reason for the five-month engagement

is not due to insufficient bookings

or reduced demand, but the permanently

increasing costs of a classic tour. Freizeit-Land

also profits as it can present a

novelty each year without any investment


In addition to the "Black Hole" there is also a new film

in the 4D moving cinema. The show programme has

also been newly designed.

The park opened in 1969 as the "Vogel, Pony,

Märchenpark" (Bird, Pony and Fairytale Park); 20

years later the start of ride constructions began with

the rides "Blauer Enzian", "Wikingerschiff" and "Marienkäferbahn".

Many previously touring attractions

have landed here, for example Finnendahl's large

viewing tower "Top of the World", or Roie's Freefall

the "Black Hole" can be seen
