KALEIDOSCOPE<br />

PARKOUR<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Helmut Bresler<br />

Satisfied with the new<br />

lighting: “<strong>Park</strong>our” owner<br />

Andreas Aigner<br />

Convinced by extensive<br />

testing at<br />

the backflash of<br />

one of the gondolas,<br />

Andreas Aigner<br />

has now also<br />

had the remaining<br />

19 gondola backflashes<br />

equipped<br />

with the latest<br />

LED lighting elements.<br />

Meanwhile, more<br />

than 10,000 modern<br />

lighting elements provide the perfect lighting for<br />

the ride. Classic spotlights are used during loading<br />

to illuminate the entire round ride with bright light<br />

for security reasons only. During the ride, the<br />

attraction is completely illuminated by LED lights<br />

though. Even though the seller’s promises relating<br />

to the new light concept at the gondolas had<br />

whetted the owner’s curiosity, he had hesitated at<br />

first and wanted to try out the effects with only one<br />

gondola. Immediately convinced by the experiment<br />

at the Bremen Freimarkt, Andreas Aigner<br />

had the remaining gondolas re-equipped during<br />

the Hamburg Frühlingsdom. According to Andreas<br />

Aigner, the variety of colours as well as the impressive<br />

brightness of the LEDs, highly effective<br />

also in daylight, tipped the scales towards the<br />

investment. There are 140 LEDs on each gondola,<br />

amounting to a total of 2,800. Since 2009 – in other<br />

words for five years – the unique “<strong>Park</strong>our” ride has<br />

been in the Munich showman family’s collection.<br />

The construction is based on the “Sound Factory”<br />

round ride from Schwarzkopf, and was thoroughly<br />

overhauled and modernised by Gerstlauer Amusement<br />

Rides.<br />

■<br />

The “Devils Manor” has<br />

become “Terror Factory”<br />

TERROR FACTORY<br />

Text & Photos: Patrick Vanstipelen<br />

This season, the ghost ride from Stephane<br />

Vanderzeypen/Janssens from Belgium surprised<br />

visitors with a completely new design. The “Devils<br />

Manor” has changed into the “Terror Factory”.<br />

According to the owner, redesigning the ride with the<br />

new “Terror Factory” theme included the installation<br />

of many new animatronics. For the first time, the<br />

newly designed ghost ride could be admired at the<br />

Sinksenfoor in Antwerp.<br />

PIRATEN TRIP<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Norman Vogt<br />

After 15 years, Nik Schultze from Bochum parted<br />

with his “Piraten Trip” kiddie ride last autumn.<br />

The new owner is Marcel Hardt from Bonn.<br />

With this ride, Hardt has purchased a very popular<br />

guest of many years standing at many prestigious<br />

events, which has thoroughly impressed visitors, not<br />

least because of its<br />

flamboyant theme.<br />

The construction,<br />

which requires just<br />

one trailer for transportation,<br />

has<br />

ground measurements<br />

of 12 x 4.5 m,<br />

a flight height of 8 m,<br />

and electrical requirements<br />

of 40 kW.<br />

The ship accommodates<br />

24 passengers,<br />

including<br />

adults. Perfectly fitting in with the theme, the ride<br />

chips are collected by a member of the staff in a<br />

pirate costume. In the second half of the season,<br />

Marcel Hardt will present the “Piraten Trip” at, among<br />

other venues, Speyer, Friedrichshafen, Coburg,<br />

Wittlich, Bonn, Crailsheim, Bad Hersfeld, Rhede,<br />

and Werne.<br />

AQUA KING<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Michael Petersen<br />

In early June, Oliver Jung and his<br />

partner Melanie Bartling from<br />

Kreuztal near Düren took over<br />

the “Aqua King” ride from the<br />

Fehlauer family, who had themselves<br />

purchased the attraction<br />

from Andreas Zinnecker only at<br />

the beginning of this year.<br />

Oliver Jung has now parted with his “Disney-Flug”<br />

kiddie ride in favour of the “Aqua King”. His new<br />

purchase is a true novelty for the fairgrounds in North-<br />

Rhine Westphalia as this unique ride (at least, unique<br />

within Germany) has only appeared in Aachen once<br />

before so far. Under management of the new owner,<br />

the attraction has already been presented at the<br />

Schützenfest in Düsseldorf-Eller, the Halver Fair, and<br />

the Remscheid Summer<br />

Fair. In addition to<br />

the “Aqua King”<br />

Oliver Jung and Melanie<br />

Bartling also<br />

tour a “Churros” operation<br />

and a crêpesbooth.<br />

NEW PRODUCTS<br />

FREAK<br />

Text:<br />

Helmut Bresler<br />

Première in Bayreuth:<br />

Zinnecker’s “Freak”<br />

The proud owners Alexander<br />

and Angelique Zinnecker<br />

At its première at the Bayreuth<br />

Volksfest, the new propeller<br />

attraction from Alexander Zinnecker<br />

fascinated the public with its<br />

predominant colours green and<br />

yellow. After a particular attraction<br />

was cancelled in Bayreuth, Alexander<br />

Zinnecker stepped in at short<br />

notice, building up his novelty ride<br />

virtually overnight. Originally, the<br />

delivery date had been scheduled<br />

for the late summer, but the Dutch<br />

manufacturer KMG rescheduled the<br />

building of the “Freak” to an earlier<br />

date at short notice. More than 40<br />

examples of this ride type have<br />

already been delivered all over the<br />

globe. The specialists from KMG<br />

were present when the construction<br />

commenced operation, and no<br />

problems arose either during the<br />

build-up, or during the first test runs,<br />

thereby providing for the complete<br />

satisfaction of Alexander and<br />

Angelique Zinnecker. According to<br />

the owner, the short build-up and dismantling<br />

times, the compact<br />

measurements, as well as the construction’s<br />

impressive 40-metre<br />

height were the reasons for purchasing<br />

the ride. They offer new potential<br />

to make the Freak a revolutionary<br />

attraction and a real crowd puller, true<br />

to the chosen motto: “Arouse the<br />

freak inside you!” The première<br />

planned to take place in Neustadt/<br />

Danube was cancelled. Further<br />

NEW PRODUCTS<br />

“Freak” during<br />

construction in Wiesbaden<br />

venues planned for this season that have either already<br />

taken place or are currently scheduled are, among others,<br />

Wiesbaden, Waldkraiburg, Geneva (Switzerland), Landshut,<br />

Freising, Delbrück, Amberg and Cologne. The backflash<br />

for the “Freak” is still being constructed and is conceived<br />

to conspicuously further justify the chosen name.<br />

“It will be a solid backflash; no tarpaulin”, said the owner.<br />

In addition to the “Freak” Alexander<br />

Zinnecker also continues to operate<br />

the “Street-Fighter" swing. Technical<br />

details of the “Freak” propeller:<br />

Ground measurements 18 x 6<br />

metres, approved by TÜV Süd<br />

Munich, 8 seats, LED-lights only. ■<br />

HANG OVER<br />

Text & Photo:<br />

Ton Koppei<br />

At the end of April, the young Dutch showman Frits Dauphin<br />

from Bergen op Zoom celebrated his première with his<br />

novelty “Hang Over”. The compact and colourful swing, which<br />

was delivered by the Czech firm Fun Light located in Brandys nad<br />

Labem, was presented in Oegstgeest for the first time. Afterwards<br />

it appeared at, among other venues, Venlo-Blerick and Heerlen.<br />

This season, Dauphin, who will also continue to tour his “Walking<br />

Street” Walkthrough construction, will present his new ride at,<br />

among other venues, Oss, Alkmaar, and Sittard.<br />

NEW PRODUCTS<br />

DISCOVERY REVOLUTION<br />

The brand new “Discovery<br />

Revolution” at the Vienna Prater<br />

providing over-the-top rides<br />

Text & Photos: Ralf Schmitt<br />

The new star among the major rides at the Vienna<br />

Prater has arrived; the “Discovery Revolution”.<br />

With an impressing flight height of 37 metres, the novelty<br />

from the Steindl family outdoes its predecessor<br />

“Discovery” by far. Moreover, the new attraction provides<br />

an over-the-top ride experience. It is the first “Discovery<br />

Revolution” built by Zamperla in Italy with the passengers<br />

seated facing inwards. On the other three previously built<br />

examples (constructed in the USA, Italy, and New<br />

Zealand), visitors are seated facing forwards. ■<br />

The previous model was<br />

dismantled after the 2013<br />

season and then the site was<br />

prepared for its large successor<br />

SPRING RIDE ROTATING<br />

KMG NEWS<br />

Text & Photos: Ralf Schmitt<br />

“Lollipop” is the name of a new<br />

15-metre family tower attraction<br />

at the Vienna Prater.<br />

The owner of the “Spring Ride<br />

Rotating” example from Moser<br />

Rides is the Kern firm. No doubt,<br />

the special feature is the mast<br />

rotating on its own axis, while the<br />

12-seat gondola is bounced up<br />

and down hydraulically. Another<br />

interesting feature is that the construction<br />

requires a ground area<br />

of just 6.10 x 6.10 metres. The<br />

“Lollipop” takes the site of the<br />

rather unfortunate “Octopus”<br />

ride.<br />

■<br />

The ride manufacturer KMG has yet again announced “full<br />

order books until August 2015”.<br />

First, three “Freak Out” constructions were built and delivered to<br />

customers in the USA early this year. The months of April to July<br />

were reserved for the production and delivery of attractions for<br />

European customers, among them the “Speed” Propeller for<br />

Dutch showman Bethel Thelen (“Jekyll & Hyde”) and Al (“Freak”),<br />

as well as an “Inversion” called “Swing Out” for Hugo Johansen<br />

from the Norwegian “Hugos Tivoli”. Moreover, “Inversion”<br />

examples will shortly be delivered to Powers Great American<br />

Midway and PJP Happee Days Shows in the USA. The first<br />

example of a completely new version of the KMG classic<br />

“Discovery” was ordered by the Australian customer Caine Brown.<br />

The new version will be taller than its predecessor, has 20<br />

suspended seats and a backdrop, is equipped with a LED/RGB<br />

lighting system, has low energy consumption and can be built up<br />

and dismantled by 2 people within 3 hours. Prospects 2015:<br />

There are plans to build the prototype of a “single transport” ride<br />

accommodating 24 people – further information will be announced<br />

by KMG late this year. Prospects 2016: The first “Giant Inversion”<br />

is scheduled to be delivered to a European customer in the spring<br />

– height: 62 metres! Further already known details of this giant: 4<br />

transport vehicles and 24 seats. The design of this construction<br />

will be introduced at the EAS in Amsterdam.<br />

Crange<br />

“So geht <strong>Kirmes</strong>” (“That’s how a fair<br />

should be!”) is the motto of the 579 th<br />

Crange Fair that will be held from 1 st<br />

to 10 th August, and will no doubt<br />

once again attract more than three<br />

million visitors from near and far to the Rhein-<br />

Herne-Kanal. Let's take a closer look at the<br />

largest fair in North-Rhine Westphalia, then consider<br />

the event’s facts and figures that so<br />

impressively prove that the Crange organisers<br />

truly know “…how a fair should be”.<br />

From more than 1,600 showman operations applying<br />

for approval to this year’s event, some 500 were<br />

chosen to once again offer visitors a colourful<br />

mixture of regular participants and novelties. For<br />

many years, the Crange Fair has been extensively<br />

advertised. With Timo Krupp, the authorities are<br />

able to also afford a city spokesman who keeps the<br />

fair in the mind of the public the whole year round,<br />

as well as keeping those responsible in the specialist<br />

departments focused on the event. Interesting<br />

facts and upcoming novelties are announced<br />

throughout the year. This “baiting” works out<br />

perfectly and arouses the public’s curiosity about<br />

the event. Already at this early stage, social net-<br />

Text: Michael Petersen<br />

Photos: Norman Vogt, Heiko Schimazik<br />

works are involved in the promotional initiatives, as<br />

they are an important advertising medium today.<br />

Moreover, the ample choice of merchandising<br />

products is becoming increasingly popular from<br />

year to year, with the limited edition of fair pins being<br />

the best-selling article. This year, mascot Fritz will<br />

ride on the ghost ride accompanied by a spook. The<br />

pin is available at the Stadtmarketing Herne GmbH<br />

Ticketshop at the city hall gate and at the Wanne city<br />

office. The opening of the Crange Fair will be held<br />

on 1 st August at 2 p.m. this year with Lord Mayor<br />

Horst Schiereck tapping the first keg of fair beer in<br />

the presence of VIPs from the local and regional<br />

scenes and the subsequent performance of this<br />

year’s guest star, Heino.<br />

Horse Market, Fireworks Display and<br />

<strong>Special</strong> Events<br />

As is well-known, the Crange Fair has its origins in<br />

a horse market. According to this ancient tradition<br />

various presentations and sales stalls will be offered<br />

at the traditional venue on Thursday, and in the<br />

evening the "Citizen Night" will be celebrated in the<br />

Bayernfesthalle beer tent. Outstanding programme<br />

highlights will be the opening and the closing fireworks<br />

displays, two magnificent events offering the<br />

latest pyrotechnic effects. On Saturday, the long<br />

festival procession will wind through the streets.<br />

SPECIAL<br />

Evening atmosphere at<br />

the Crange Fair<br />

ANNIVERSARY<br />

The Herne showman<br />

Reinhard Meeß celebrated<br />

a special anniversary<br />

with his kiddie<br />

baroque chain ride at<br />

the Crange Fair this<br />

year.<br />

For 20 years, it has been<br />

“Piel op no Crange” for<br />

him and his magnificent<br />

kiddie ride. The chain<br />

ride has been equipped<br />

with various new LED<br />

light segments, and the<br />

wrought iron crowd barriers<br />

have been ornately<br />

decorated. While the<br />

children are making their<br />

rounds, their parents can<br />

take a little rest on the<br />

new benches in the<br />

middle of a beautiful<br />

flower display. ■<br />

With a successful combination of traditional and<br />

modern themes, a mixture of carnival, Techno, Pop<br />

and folk music, groups on foot and festival floats, it<br />

will prove to be a procession of generations for<br />

every generation. All the other programme highlights<br />

during the opening week, including the<br />

Family Day, Senior's Day, Tag der Vereine<br />

(Associations Day) and other special events, will<br />

remain unchanged. The fair passes are now a<br />

fixture within the ample array of special features.<br />

After initial justifiable criticism, the benefit gained<br />

from fairground passes has now become clear.<br />

Somewhat weak weekdays are livened up by them<br />

and entice more visitors to the Rhein-Herne-Kanal.<br />

This feature is not free for the showmen though as<br />

every voucher is “subsidised”.<br />

Crange Novelties<br />

“At Crange” the latest and most spectacular attractions<br />

are gathering – along with fairground classics.<br />

At the press conference, Werner Friedhoff, head<br />

official at the Herne Public Order Office, was able to<br />

announce a number of novelties for this year. With<br />

the “Mega King Tower” from Zinnecker, the Crange<br />

Fair will present what is probably the most spectacular<br />

novelty of this season. The tallest transportable<br />

mega Drop Tower will provide a magnificent<br />

view across the fairground and the Ruhr region at a<br />

height of 80 metres.<br />

Crange is “Ruhrpott pure”<br />

Greetings from the<br />

Crange Fair<br />

Thrill seekers / adrenalin junkies will also get their<br />

money’s worth on the second novelty, Löffelhardt’s<br />

“Predator”, which turning the world upside down,<br />

guarantees a particularly intense and varied ride.<br />

The “Traumgenerator” (Lemoine-Häsler), a show<br />

with many effects and surprises, will take its passengers<br />

to a futuristic world of dreams. This year, two<br />

novelties will provide a creepy atmosphere. Fellerhoff’s<br />

“Geisterstadt” will make its début in Herne,<br />

bringing with it a horde of new, moving figures.<br />

The classic multi-storey ghost ride with its magnificent<br />

first-class interior will give its passengers some<br />

creepy experiences. Moreover, a creepy show programme<br />

will be offered in front of the Geisterstadt.<br />

This is also true for the “Horror-Lazarett” (Lehmann/<br />

Weeber), where "patients” are “helped” without<br />

appointments or health insurance. A visit to the<br />

military hospital – particularly with the gruesome<br />

operating theatres, doctors, nurses and the grisly<br />

mortuary – is an experience not for the faint-hearted.<br />

The selection of novelties for Crange also includes<br />

the “Twister” from Eick and the large “Around the<br />

World” chain ride. With the “Alpina-Bahn” from<br />

Bruch, the largest transportable family coaster will<br />

come to the largest Volksfest in North-Rhine Westphalia<br />

once again this year, along with Renoldi’s<br />

“Höllenblitz” and the popular “Wilde Maus” (Eberhard-Göbel).<br />

A total of five dodgem tracks will be<br />

available to the visitors once again. With the rebuilt<br />

and newly designed example from Karl Quante,<br />

there will even be an (almost) completely new construction<br />

along with the “Diamond” dodgem track<br />

(Hartkopf-Osselmann), “No.1” (Isken), “Drive In”<br />

(Schmidt) and the traditionally presented Petter’s<br />

“Starlight”. In addition to the aforementioned<br />

novelties from the show and fun sector, Lehmann’s<br />

“Geisterschlange” will also be built up at Crange.<br />

While the fortune tellers Ronja and Medusa will<br />

provide visitors with a glimpse into the future,<br />

Wheel” on the Saturday afternoon,<br />

for which 50 OV readers will be<br />

drawn by lot as participants. On<br />

Sunday at 10 a.m. a church<br />

service will be held in the Niedersachsen<br />

beer hall, and the large<br />

horse and cattle market will open<br />

WENDEN<br />

Text:<br />

Michael Petersen<br />

The community of Wenden<br />

(19,900 residents) is located in<br />

the south of the Olpe district, in<br />

the southern-most corner of the<br />

Sauerland. Currently there are<br />

100 too-few residents for<br />

Wenden to obtain municipal<br />

rights. The “Kärmetze”, as the<br />

largest Volksfest in South Westphalia<br />

has always been called,<br />

always begins on the third Tuesday<br />

in August. It is officially<br />

opened on the previous weekend<br />

though, and remains closed<br />

on the Monday. In other words,<br />

with so much celebrating going<br />

on it is deemed necessary to<br />

close the event for one day!<br />

This year, the Kärmetze, which<br />

evolved from a church festival, will<br />

be held on 16 th , 17 th and 19 th August.<br />

The Cologne Suffragan bishop in<br />

earlier times scheduled the date of<br />

the parish fair for the Sunday prior<br />

to “Assumption Day”. Merchants<br />

and jugglers met all around the<br />

church, and the event focused on a<br />

large bric-a-brac and livestock<br />

market, known far beyond the<br />

Wenden region at that time. Only in<br />

the second half of the 19 th century<br />

did the first comedians, carousels,<br />

shooting galleries, barrel organ<br />

players and Wheels of Fortune<br />

come to the community. Over the<br />

centuries, the event evolved into the<br />

largest Volksfest in South Westphalia. This year, a total<br />

of 400 showman enterprises and market merchants<br />

were chosen from the applications received. The brica-brac<br />

market offers a varied product range and boasts<br />

a vast amount of goods. The official opening of the event<br />

will take place in front of the town hall on Saturday at 3<br />

p.m. After the music programme by the Heid Musikverein,<br />

there will be a joint stroll to the opening ceremony<br />

at the Ferris Wheel where, after the speech and the<br />

tapping of the keg by Mayor Peter Büser, the rides will<br />

eventually make their rounds. On the Saturday evening<br />

the fireworks display will once again illuminate the<br />

Wenden skies. The church service on Sunday will be<br />

followed by the morning concert inside the beer tent,<br />

and the rides as well as the bric-a-brac market will open<br />

at 10 a.m. On Monday, the event will be closed as<br />

already stated, and on Tuesday the hustle and bustle<br />

will begin as early as 8 a.m. with the livestock show and<br />

the awarding of prizes. From 9 a.m. the fairground will<br />

open its gates once again. Nine large ride attractions<br />

and seven kiddie rides will be presented this year. Built<br />

up in the town centre and on the fairground will be the<br />

“Revolution” (Kinzler-Nickel), “Flash” (Weber). “Musik<br />

Express” (Wendler), dodgem track (Mennecke),<br />

“Columbia-Rad” (Burghard-Kleuser), “Wellenflug”<br />

(Wendler), “Wilde Maus” (Barth), “Breakdance No. 2”<br />

(Bonner) and the “Burg des Grauens” Ghost Ride (Burghard).<br />

The younger visitors will enjoy two Jet Rides, the<br />

“Truck Stop” kiddie track ride, a kiddie carousel, a<br />

kiddie Wave-Swinger, another kiddie ride and the<br />

“Crazy Clown”. This time, the attractions built up at the<br />

Kärmetze event will once again offer something for all<br />

age groups and will leave nothing to be desired.<br />

So let’s go!<br />

PREMIÈRE<br />

Première on the island of<br />

Majorca “Formula Maxx”<br />

Already last winter, the very first<br />

photos of a novelty ride on the<br />

Fabbri premises in the small<br />

Italian town of Calto were<br />

circulating on the internet. With<br />

this construction, the Fabbri<br />

Group has now realised the<br />

previously introduced “Dragon<br />

Claw” concept, but as a mobile<br />

version for touring. However, the<br />

ride that seems at first glance to<br />

be a semi-finished “Booster”<br />

turns out to be a powerful XXL<br />

swing named “Formula Maxx”.<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Andre Blunck<br />

The 12-seat gondola is<br />

mounted to the swinging arm<br />

Formula Maxx<br />

Four years ago, for example, he<br />

purchased the prototype of the<br />

“Inversion XXL” ride, which is now<br />

touring throughout the Netherlands.<br />

He also operates a Booster Maxx<br />

The prototype was delivered to the Spanish “VB “Gigant”, whereas he sold his standard “Booster” to<br />

Grupo” of Vicente Banuls, one of the largest France a short time ago. Moreover, the showman<br />

showman group in Spain. Banuls has always been, enterprise is currently presenting a number of rides,<br />

and still is, known to Fabbri as a good customer. such as the “Jungla Encantada Rapidos” (River<br />

22


PREMIÈRE<br />

Rafting), several Spinning Coasters, the “Extreme”<br />

(Top Scan) and many other attractions throughout<br />

Spain.<br />

Now the “Formula Maxx” has been added to Banuls’s<br />

selection of attractions. While the giant propeller ride<br />

type “Booster” provides thrill seeking passengers<br />

with a number of inversions, high speed and strong<br />

g-forces, the “Formula Maxx” is more family oriented<br />

for the simple reason that it does not turn its passengers<br />

upside down. Nevertheless, the attraction<br />

should not be underestimated; after all, its arm with<br />

the gondola locked to it has a maximum outward<br />

swing of 95 degrees, and its daring passengers are<br />

subjected to g-forces of up to 3.6 g as they are then<br />

hurled through the boarding area. The ride is<br />

effectively accompanied by fog effects and the shrill<br />

noise of Formula 1 engines further enhancing the ride<br />

experience.<br />

At the time of our visit, the ride was very well<br />

frequented, even by visiting families. With the arm’s<br />

maximum outward swing of about 30 metres, the<br />

attraction does not break any records though as far<br />

as height is concerned. The prototype is dominated<br />

by the colours red and yellow, has a Formula 1<br />

design, and is equipped with a number of LEDs and<br />

an LCD screen. “Formula Maxx” celebrated its<br />

première at the “Fira del Ram” on the island of<br />

Majorca, from where it went on to the well-known<br />

“Feria de Abril” in Seville. Further subsequent<br />

venues were Chiclana de la Frontera and San Juan<br />

en León. The attraction, similar in construction to the<br />

successful “Booster”, requires only two transport<br />

vehicles. The manufacturer offers this ride type also<br />

with other themes.<br />

PREMIÈRE<br />

The “Swiss Tower” at its<br />

official inauguration in<br />

Frauenfeld<br />

On 14 th June 2014 at about 10<br />

a.m., “Conquest of Paradise”<br />

sounded from the loudspeakers<br />

of the “Swiss Tower” on the fairground<br />

in Frauenfeld, Switzerland<br />

– and the gondola rose up to<br />

a height of 80 metres for the very<br />

first time after its official inauguration.<br />

Riding with it was its<br />

owner Hanspeter Maier and his<br />

wife Fa, as well as showmen<br />

pastor Katharina Hoby, celebrating<br />

this third construction from<br />

the “Mega Drop Tower” series,<br />

built by Funtime, on its première<br />

ride.<br />

operation, as well as their colleagues,<br />

friends and media representatives for<br />

gracing the event with their presence. Even<br />

the “Stadtpräsident” (Mayor), Carlo<br />

B<br />

Papolari, was present at the inauguration,<br />

ack on the ground again after the exhilarating freefall,<br />

the passengers were welcomed by some 100 on his operation of the newly purchased attraction. Then<br />

and wished the newly purchased attraction all the best<br />

applauding guests invited to the inauguration party –<br />

and all the daredevils from the public were then able to<br />

board and try out the latest and tallest showman attraction<br />

in Switzerland. A so-called pre-opening of the “Swiss<br />

Tower” had already taken place at the Chilibi in Urdorf<br />

some days earlier where, according to the owner, the<br />

construction had worked flawlessly. In Frauenfeld, the<br />

elegant white tower, provided with exquisite lighting<br />

after sundown by 52,800 LEDs from the Kairies firm, was<br />

visible even from the autobahn. After the inauguration<br />

ceremony held by showmen pastor Katharina Hoby,<br />

Hanspeter Maier – himself hailing from Frauenfeld –<br />

thanked those responsible from the city authorities, the<br />

Funtime firm, for the harmonious and unhindered co-<br />

Hanspeter Maier put on gloves and smashed a bottle of<br />

champagne against the handrail, thereby opening a generous<br />

buffet. While the attraction is predominantly painted<br />

in white, its supports and centrepiece are a deep<br />

red. The metal panels along the stairs were covered with<br />

pictures of cities where Maier regularly presents his<br />

attractions. Apart from Zurich there are, among others,<br />

paintings of St. Gallen, Lucerne, and Basle – all of them<br />

cities where the “Swiss Tower” will make an appearance<br />

this year. Maier’s tower does without a backflash, as it is<br />

to be built up in the centre of the fairground at most Swiss<br />

venues. Between the two stairs, a decorative Swiss cow<br />

“slouches” – also sporting a “Swiss Tower” tattoo.<br />

Further venues of the tower in its première year will be<br />

24


Winterthur and the Seehasenfest in Friedrichshafen,<br />

Germany. H.P. Maier even had to tell a short but<br />

enthralling story at the opening; specifically that the<br />

tower had been struck by lightning during a heavy<br />

thunderstorm just the day before! However, after a<br />

moment of shock, a subsequent reset and a rebooting<br />

of the computers, the “Swiss Tower” ran without any<br />

problems. “I am completely satisfied,” said Maier. ■<br />

and "The King" (Zinnecker)<br />

Very simple: the<br />

"Lautrer Kerwezelt"<br />

Text & Photos: Norman Vogt<br />

The largest Volksfest in Western Palatinate<br />

(23 rd May to 2 nd June) was opened on Friday<br />

at 6 p.m., and four hours later visitors were<br />

able to enjoy a colourful fireworks display.<br />

Even though visitor attendance was low on the<br />

Thursday (Ascension Day) as well as on the<br />

Monday and Tuesday, the participants were<br />

satisfied to very satisfied at the end of the event.<br />

“It was ok,” said many of them. This was not<br />

only due to the mainly good weather, but also<br />

to the harmonious mixture of operations put<br />

together from some 140 approved attractions.<br />

The “Mega King Tower” free fall tower<br />

(Zinnecker), engaged as the highlight of the<br />

event, set new height records in Kaiserslautern.<br />

The Zinnecker family also brought their<br />

“The King” ride to Palatinate. Another novelty<br />

was the “Big Bamboo” Walkthrough construction<br />

from Hempen, just as was Schramm’s<br />

“Disco Fieber”, which quickly turned out to be<br />

the favourite among teenage visitors and<br />

offered an electrifying show with music, smoke<br />

and light effects. The centre of the fairground<br />

was once again occupied by the “Jupiter”<br />

Ferris Wheel (Barth/Kipp), with the “Dschungel<br />

Train” (Blum) built up in front of it to its left, and<br />

the “Wellenflug” (Nickel) to its right. Also presented<br />

once again was the “Breakdance” from<br />

Becker, the meeting point of the younger<br />

visitors and those who are still young at heart.<br />

Further attractions on the fairground were<br />

Bergmann’s water ride, the “Take Off” (Ruppert), “Geisterschlange”<br />

(Lehmann), two dodgem tracks and the<br />

“Kerwe tent”, which was erected in the rear section. It<br />

was set up entirely without decoration and made a rather<br />

dismal impression, despite offering live events on an<br />

almost daily basis. The selection of attractions was<br />

rounded off by kiddie rides and<br />

concession stalls, as well as a<br />

varied selection of gastronomic<br />

operations. Moreover, market<br />

merchants built up their stalls<br />

on the Lautrer Maimarkt in the<br />

“Shopping-Gässje”. Just as on<br />

family day (Wednesday), the<br />

closing fireworks display on<br />

Monday once again attracted<br />

many visitors to the fairground.<br />

In addition, the Showman Association<br />

Barbarossa Pfalz-Saar<br />

e. V., in cooperation with the<br />

Kaiserslautern Kreissparkasse,<br />

came up with a special feature,<br />

“Kerwemoney” worth 10 x €1 that could be bought at the<br />

Sparkasse bank at €9. The “Dollar Day” on the second<br />

Friday was also well received, particularly with the main<br />

target group, the US Americans soldiers stationed in<br />

Kaiserslautern, who were able to pay with US Dollars at<br />

a favourable exchange rate at all the attractions. ■<br />

BAMBERG<br />

A LOOK BACK<br />

Impressions of the<br />

"Bamberg Frühling" on the<br />

new festival area<br />

Text & Photos: Helmut Bresler<br />

New name, new concept, new fairground and new<br />

momentum; that was just what the showmen in<br />

Bamberg had wished for! On the close of the threeweek<br />

event, they have achieved a decent financial<br />

result.<br />

For about 30 years, the “Bamberger Plärrer” has been<br />

held on the Breitenau fairground, and its list of participating<br />

showmen can boast of well-known names, such<br />

as Finnendahl’s “Fantastische Reise” and Barth’s<br />

“Fünfer-Looping". During the last few years there has<br />

been no consistency, however. First, the event had to<br />

be cancelled as the space was required as a car park<br />

for the Bamberg state garden show, and then a new<br />

site had to be found as the area is to be developed.<br />

One can only hope that the new “Bamberger Frühling”<br />

event has now found a permanent new home on the<br />

former site of the German-American Volksfest, at the<br />

junction of Zollnerstraße and the Berliner Ring. The<br />

area still belongs to the Americans up until the full withdrawal<br />

of the US troops on 30 th September. After that,<br />

the Bundesanstalt für Immobilenaufgaben (German<br />

Federal Agency for real estate) will decide on its future<br />

use, but the Bamberg city authorities, as organiser of<br />

the event, also hope to be able to continue to use this<br />

space as a fairground. The required infrastructure is<br />

available, but has to be adapted to requirements in<br />

some places. The fairground was successfully laid out,<br />

leaving nothing to be desired. New in Bamberg were<br />

the “X-Flight” (Uebel-Sachs), “Traumgenerator”<br />

(Lemoine & Häsler), the “Fahrt zur Hölle” ghost ride<br />

(Dom-Jollberg), as well as Alex and Störzer’s “Black<br />

out”, for which it was the second venue after its<br />

première in Nürnberg. There was no mere beer tent but<br />

a “Bierdorf”, or Beer Village, presenting different<br />

culinary offerings; a good idea, but one that requires<br />

improvement in order to present all the suppliers to<br />

best effect. The cooperation between both the<br />

professional associations has proved very successful<br />

in calling the public attention to the Bamberg Frühling.<br />

The request of the Americans to prohibit the parking of<br />

vehicles and caravans on the site for security reasons<br />

was granted. Despite good public transport connections,<br />

the current lack of car parks is a problem however.<br />

What will the future bring? Already on the old site,<br />

the autumn event in October used to cause lots of<br />

problems. A new concept and new ideas are urgently<br />

required to also continue and enhance this event. Both<br />

Bamberg events are currently going through a phase<br />

of change. While the “Bamberg Frühling” has enjoyed<br />

a good start, the autumn event is still waiting for some<br />

new inspiration.<br />

Impressions of the<br />

Maifest in Saarbrücken<br />

From 25 th April to 13 th May, on the occasion of the May<br />

Festival, the “Saarterrassen” fairground in the<br />

capital city of the Saarland was transformed into a<br />

colourful fun mile once again.<br />

A balanced entertainment contingent including an<br />

attractive supporting programme for both young and old<br />

was presented. In addition to many games and sales<br />

stalls, visitors also encountered ride attractions providing<br />

either nerve-wracking, or rather less 'demanding'<br />

ride experiences. New for Saarbrücken was the “Polyp”<br />

from Massel. The completely overhauled<br />

Schwarzkopf Monster 3<br />

celebrated a successful comeback<br />

and was very well received by the<br />

visitors, just as was the “Blue<br />

Hawaii” Twister (Pistorius), which<br />

was very well frequented. Other<br />

rides presented were the “Safarie<br />

Express” (Heiderich) and “Musik<br />

Swing” (Pistorius). Two dodgem<br />

tracks and the “Hyper Coaster” simulator<br />

rounded off the selection of<br />

attractions. Moreover, younger visitors<br />

were able to enjoy a number of<br />

kiddie rides, including the appealingly<br />

designed “Kleine Dschungelreise”. Every Tuesday,<br />

children paid reduced prices, and the Family Day with<br />

fares reduced by half on all rides was held on 8 th May.<br />

The May Festival was closed by a magnificent fireworks<br />

display in the skies above Saarbrücken on 13 th May. ■<br />

The 492 nd Pfingstmasche event,<br />

which was organised by the Altmärkischer<br />

Schaustellerverein,<br />

opened its gates in temperatures<br />

of more than 30°C on 7 th<br />

June at 2 p.m. Up until the Sunday<br />

after Pentecost (15 th June),<br />

the rides made their rounds on the fairground near<br />

the town centre.<br />

Up until some years ago, the “Masche” was one of<br />

the largest Pentecost Volksfest events in Saxony-<br />

Anhalt. This gradually changed from the mid-1990s,<br />

after the city festival in Magdeburg developed into the<br />

longest party mile in the federal state. Previously, the<br />

Magdeburg residents used to come to the Pfingstmasche<br />

en masse, but nowadays the locals rush to<br />

the easily reachable city festival in the state capital<br />

about 30 kilometres away. In addition to the regular<br />

participants represented at the Pfingstmasche every<br />

year, the Altmärkische Schaustellerverein always tries<br />

hard to engage new attractions for Halberstadt. This<br />

is no longer easy however, as participating in the<br />

Magdeburg city festival is more lucrative for the showmen.<br />

At the opening of the event Werner Jacob Jnr.,<br />

the chairman of the showman association, was able<br />

to welcome only a couple of visitors with a short<br />

speech. Afterwards, Mayor Norbert Eichler tapped<br />

the keg of beer, which was then dispensed to the<br />

visitors free of charge, by courtesy of the Showman<br />

Association, and after a loud three-cannon salute<br />

from the Schützengilde 1485 Haldensleben, the rides<br />

started to make their rounds. During the traditional<br />

stroll across the fairground, the guests of honour from<br />

the district, the city authorities and the Schützengilde<br />

tried out several ride attractions. Rides presented this<br />

time were the “Magic” (Herrmann), a chain ride<br />

(Sertic), “Schunkler” (Kazimierski), “Musik Palast”<br />

(Jacob), a ghost ride (Hünniger) and Meyer’s<br />

dodgem track. The younger<br />

visitors were able to enjoy a<br />

kiddie railway attraction (Eckermann),<br />

a kiddie carousel<br />

(Gabriel), a kiddie track ride<br />

(Pönitz) and a bungee-trampoline.<br />

These were joined by a<br />

shooting gallery, a hook-a-duck,<br />

a ball and dart throwing booth,<br />

and a number of snack, sweets<br />

and beverage operations providing<br />

the visitors with food and drinks. Wednesday<br />

was the designated family day with reduced prices at<br />

all attractions, and on the Thursday from 10 a.m. until<br />

midday, disabled people invited by the showmen<br />

were offered free entertainment on the fairground. On<br />

the Friday, the showmen held a lamp procession once<br />

again. This proceeded from the market square to the<br />

fairground, setting off at 8.30 p.m., and every child<br />

participating in the procession was able to enjoy a<br />

free ride on a ride of his or her choice, before the<br />

magnificent fireworks display was held after sundown.<br />

Let's talk about business: Due to midsummer<br />

weather with temperatures of more than 30°C and the<br />

Magdeburg city festival, business was quite modest<br />

at the beginning of the event. With the heat lasting<br />

almost throughout the entire event, the fairground<br />

stood almost empty in the afternoons. As visitor<br />

attendance was quite low due to the hot temperatures,<br />

financial results did not live up to the showmen’s<br />

expectations.<br />

The Sterkrade Corpus Christi Day Fair, the first of<br />

the three major summer fairs in North-Rhine Westphalia,<br />

was held from 18 th to 23 rd June.<br />

Shortly before the beginning of the event there were<br />

some unplanned changes that required fairground<br />

director, Sina Illmann, to relocate a number of ride<br />

attractions. Instead of the originally chosen “Bellevue”<br />

Ferris Wheel, the “Sky Lounge Wheel” made its rounds<br />

A LOOK BACK<br />

"Mega King Tower" at<br />

Oberhausen-Sterkrade<br />

on the site next to the Technisches Rathaus; the very site<br />

where it had been presented as the “Expo” Ferris Wheel<br />

four years ago. Moreover, the “Mega King Tower” was<br />

allocated a new site as it arrived in Sterkrade earlier than<br />

expected. As a result, the Freefall Tower soared into the<br />

sky visible from any distance on the Hirschhügel, the<br />

highest point of the fairground. In addition, Wegener’s<br />

“Beach Jumper” was slightly moved and almost cut off<br />

from the circuit. Due to being exquisitely operated, this<br />

ride ranked among the real “winners” of the event.<br />

Finally, the “Turbo Force” was placed on the Zilianplatz,<br />

and the “Transformer” occupied the site at the railway<br />

station originally allocated to the Freefall Tower. In the<br />

end, all relocations turned out to be more than successful.<br />

The “Mega King Tower” seemed to be even taller on<br />

the Hirschhügel, the collaboration between the propeller<br />

and the “Circus Circus” ride was highly effective, and the<br />

“Transformer” once again made a convincing impression<br />

on its site at the railway station – the area around<br />

which was noticeably enhanced by appealing concession<br />

stalls this year. Apart from these changes, the layout<br />

of the different areas was much as described in our<br />

preview. Results at the Corpus Christi Day Fair were<br />

positive, although not as outstanding as last year. ■<br />

BREMERHAVEN<br />

The Bremerhaven Frühjahrsmarkt was held on<br />

Wilhelm-Kaisen-Platz from 16 th to 25 th May. Some<br />

70 showmen built up their operations on a newlydesigned<br />

fairground, as the area had virtually<br />

been reduced to half its original size due to a DIY<br />

store being constructed within the area.<br />

Organiser Jürgen Fuhrmann was able to present four<br />

novelties: The “XXL” Swing (Dennies-Kipp), “Euro<br />

Coaster” and “Jumper” (Rasch), and the “Happy<br />

Family” (Heine), along with the “Avenger” (Holzem),<br />

“Breakdance” (Dreher/Vespermann), “Night Style”<br />

(Armbrecht), “Petersburger Schlittenfahrt” (Burgdorf),<br />

Dodgem Track (Robrahn-Böker) and the<br />

Ferris Wheel from Cornelius. Moreover, the younger<br />

visitors were able to enjoy a number of kiddie rides.<br />

Numerous confectionery stalls, snack booths,<br />

games booths, beverage outlets and sales booths<br />

rounded off the selection of attractions. The Frühjahrsmarkt<br />

was opened on Friday evening and an<br />

opening firework display was held after dark.<br />

Wednesday was the designated Family Day, and<br />

there was another firework display on the second<br />

Friday before the Frühjahrsmarkt closed on the<br />

Sunday evening.<br />

BAYREUTH<br />

A LOOK BACK<br />

Text & Photos: Helmut Bresler<br />

No top attractions, worries<br />

about the future<br />

organiser, and a dissatisfied<br />

beer tent<br />

patron; these were the<br />

headlines reporting on<br />

the Pentecost event in<br />

Upper Franconia.<br />

Andreas Zinnecker’s<br />

“Mega King Tower”,<br />

heralded as the highlight<br />

in advertising, was conspicuous by its absence.<br />

According to the owner, the short-term cancellation<br />

was due to technical problems, but the tourism<br />

Director Jan Kempgens did not want to speculate<br />

about the real reasons. After all, he was concerned<br />

about finding a replacement, and hit it lucky with<br />

Alexander and Angelique Zinnecker and their<br />

novelty attraction “Freak”. Behind the scenes there<br />

is a hot political infighting about the future of the<br />

Volksfest, or rather about the future organiser. For<br />

some years now, the “Bayreuther Marketing &<br />

Tourismus GmbH” has mastered this task with ease.<br />

Now it has turned out that contracting an organiser<br />

without a European-wide tender procedure<br />

probably infringed the national competition law;<br />

therefore there will be a new call for bids. Naturally,<br />

the showmen would like to continue to work together<br />

with the tried and tested partner, as they are worried<br />

about private organisers who only want to make<br />

money on the Volksfest. A decision will not be taken<br />

before late October or early November.<br />

Jan Kempgens: “We are now beginning with the<br />

tender and planning of the spring festival and the<br />

Volksfest. By the end of this year everything will have<br />

been fixed for the season 2015!” He is undoubtedly<br />

right. Built up along the large circuit course were,<br />

among other attractions, “The King” (Zinnecker),<br />

“Fahrt zur Hölle” (Dom-Jollberg),<br />

“<strong>Park</strong>our” (Aigner), “Rotor” (Pluschies),<br />

“Flipper” (Meeß), “Rio<br />

Rapidos” (Kaiser), “Happy Family”<br />

(Heine), the “Twister” coaster<br />

(Kaiser), “Breakdance” (Diebold)<br />

and the “Nürnberger Wellenflug”<br />

(Distel). Unfortunately, a Ferris<br />

Wheel – shown on the poster – was<br />

missing once again. Diebold’s<br />

dodgem track changed its traditional<br />

site and provided the fairground<br />

with a new image. Just as at the<br />

Erlangen Berg and the Amberg<br />

Dult, the extremely hot Whitsun<br />

Weather permitting and the festival streets<br />

in Bayreuth were well frequented<br />

weekend resulted in low visitor attendance and<br />

affected the end results. During the 12 years that<br />

Jan Kempgens has been responsible for the<br />

Bayreuther Volksfest, he has seen five beer tent<br />

patrons; Uwe Hölzgen, Gerhard Widmann,<br />

Hermann Murr, Bastian Schuhmann and, now for the<br />

second time, Jochen Mörz. Therefore it is understandable<br />

that he hopes for continuity and<br />

earnestly desires that there are no further changes<br />

in the future. In principle, the cooperation with the<br />

present beer tent patron works well, even though<br />

there is a need for negotiations at the moment. Mörz<br />

is critical of the high number of beer and snack<br />

booths all around his beer tent and calls for a<br />

substantial reduction. For Kempgens, a classic beer<br />

tent is an indispensable must! For the first time in<br />

many years, the Miss Bayreuth contest – the 'mega<br />

event' during the Volksfest – was fiercely criticised<br />

for its poor attendance and unbearable attendant<br />

noise. This is a pity, as the candidates would have<br />

deserved a truly professional event – another<br />

matter requiring urgent action.<br />

HALVER<br />

Text: Michael Petersen<br />

The 370 th Halver Fair, celebrated<br />

from 20 th to 23 rd<br />

June, was prominently<br />

occupied.<br />

On the occasion of the anniversary,<br />

the organiser had<br />

slightly increased the number<br />

of participants and contracted<br />

two spectacular ride<br />

attractions. The section at the<br />

former railway station made a<br />

convincing impression this<br />

year due to the effective<br />

placement of the two towering<br />

ride attractions, “Star<br />

Flyer” and “Artistico”. Also<br />

built up in this section were<br />

“Die verrückte Farm”, a<br />

dodgem track and the<br />

“Crazy Mouse”. In front of the<br />

Sparkasse building, the<br />

“Liberty Wheel” Ferris Wheel<br />

and the Musik Express made<br />

their rounds. The street<br />

section was livened up by the<br />

“Disco Dance” Miami, and on<br />

the Jugendheimplatz “Break<br />

Dance No.2” and “Aqua<br />

King”, which replaced the<br />

“Jekyll & Hyde” propeller, but<br />

did not fare too well next to<br />

the large Breakdance. Particularly<br />

noticeable was the<br />

very good selection of concession<br />

stalls. In the end, the<br />

anniversary fair was very well<br />

attended, but it did not really<br />

stand a chance against the<br />

WM football frenzy. As a<br />

result, it was not really surprising<br />

that business on the<br />

Saturday evening proved a<br />

big flop. Next year, the Halver<br />

Fair will be smaller due to<br />

construction work in the area<br />

at the station, but now alternative<br />

sites are becoming<br />

available.<br />

A LOOK BACK<br />

SOUTHAMPTON (GB)<br />

Craig Danter’s<br />

Many attractions at the<br />

Common Easter Fair 2014<br />

in Southampton<br />

Text & Photos: Marcus Gaines<br />

What a difference a year makes, gone was the<br />

snow and arctic cold weather of 2013, replaced by<br />

weekends of glorious sunshine and April showers<br />

during the week. The sunshine over the Bank Holiday<br />

weekend helped to attract the crowds making<br />

for a busy weekend for showmen.<br />

The fair is located in the middle of Southampton’s<br />

largest open park land, so families took advantage of<br />

the sunshine with picnics and football games, and<br />

then ventured to the fair for a few rides.<br />

However it wasn’t all good news. The lateness of<br />

Easter meant that straight after the Easter weekend<br />

the school holidays finished and there were few children<br />

to visit the fair during the weekdays. Add in some<br />

heavy rain and even the evenings were quiet. Luckily<br />

the sun returned for the second weekend of the fair<br />

38


and the rides were busy once again. As the largest<br />

fair on the South Coaster of England, the ride line up<br />

was of the usual high calibre. Making its first appearance<br />

at the fair was Graham Sedgwick with his “Rock<br />

Rage” KMG Inversion. Unfortunately being tucked<br />

behind a burger stand meant that walking through the<br />

fair in one direction was a little obscured, except of<br />

course when running. For the 2 nd week of the event<br />

Graham Sedgwick debuted a 2 nd ride, the “Superspin”<br />

KMG Experience, which had been open elsewhere<br />

for the Easter Weekend.<br />

As is now common the fair had a couple of<br />

duplications, with Marissa Wall’s (previously John<br />

Wall) dodgems and William Cole’s dodgems present,<br />

and Keeley Wall’s "Super Star" and Leigh Danter’s<br />

"Super Star" also in attendance. But all were riding<br />

well despite the immediate competition.<br />

Star attractions at the fair also included Edward<br />

Danter’s “Oxygen” KMG Booster, John Searle Jnr.'s<br />

“Jumpin Jaks”, Perrin Stevens "Jump n Smile", Craig<br />

Danter’s ARM “Superbowl” and George Brewer Jnr.'s<br />

“Midnight Express” Sobema Matterhorn. Unfortunately<br />

Midnight Express was strangely closed<br />

for much of the busy Easter weekend.<br />

Creating an olden time area of the fair was Ricky<br />

Smith Jnr.’s “Big Wheel” Ferris Wheel and Tommy<br />

Chipperfield's "Helter Skelter". A<br />

traditional cork gun side stall<br />

helped finish off the vintage feel to<br />

the section. With its dated facade<br />

Charles Lock’s “Energy Rush”<br />

Rotor didn’t look out of place<br />

positioned here either.<br />

The juvenile section of the fair<br />

continues to grow, with even more<br />

rides catering for the younger<br />

visitors. There was just about<br />

every genre of kiddie attraction in<br />

attendance from the traditional<br />

train ride and toy sets, to mini<br />

paratroopers and inflatables.<br />

Charles Ive Jnr.'s “Runaway Train”<br />

Roller Coaster was once again<br />

popular with the more daring<br />

youngsters. With so many families<br />

with young kids enjoying the<br />

spring sunshine these rides were<br />

undoubtedly the busiest of all the<br />

attractions on offer. With such a<br />

diverse range of rides for all ages,<br />

what a fair of this size is really<br />

missing is a large roller coaster.<br />

It’s been 6 years since James<br />

Mellors last attended with his<br />

“Magic Mouse” Spinning Coaster<br />

in 2008. But then the UK has less<br />

than 10 adult roller coasters on the<br />

travelling circuit.<br />


FOIRE DU TRÔNE IN PARIS (F)<br />

Text:<br />

For almost two months (from 29 th March to 25 th May), the<br />

traditional “Foire du Trone” Volksfest was celebrated in the<br />

French capital city of Paris.<br />

This year, the two major novelties among the showman<br />

attractions making a guest appearance were from Germany; the<br />

large “Daemonium” ghost ride and the mega drop tower “Sky<br />

Fall” both went to Paris for the first time. The Huss Freefall Tower<br />

“Countdown” took a break in favour of the “Sky Fall” this year,<br />

and its passengers enjoyed both the magnificent view across<br />

the roofs of Paris from the very top, and the “freefall” experience<br />

from a height of about 80 metres. The “Daemonium” was also<br />

very well received by the public, despite the French being<br />

already quite spoilt by the “Train Fantome”. The fare prices at the<br />

two Ferris Wheels presented on the fairground were a muchdiscussed<br />

topic this time. While a round on the modern “Roue<br />

de Paris” with its closed gondolas cost €5, the other Ferris Wheel<br />

– an older example with lattice masts and open gondolas – tried<br />

to put one over on its competitor by offering a “cut-throat price”<br />

of €2 per person.<br />

NOSTALGIA<br />

NOSTALGIC EXHIBITION IN NÜRNBERG<br />

The largest and most diverse<br />

nostalgic exhibition Germany<br />

has ever seen – apart from the<br />

“Oide Wiesn” in Munich – was<br />

presented as a special attraction<br />

at the Nürnberg Frühlingsfest.<br />

After an experiment in the<br />

autumn of 2011, some ideas were<br />

taken on and integrated into a<br />

completely new concept, and<br />

visitors rushed to the exhibition<br />

under the patronage of The Nürnberg<br />

Lord Mayor and President<br />

of the German "Städtetag", or<br />

Congress of Municipalities,<br />

Ulrich Maly who was the patron<br />

of the exhibition.<br />

Some impressions of<br />

the nostalgic section at the<br />

Nürnberg Frühlings Volksfest<br />

Last year’s 125 th anniversary of the South German<br />

Showman Association provided the theme for the<br />

exhibition. On a corner of the fairground course<br />

visitors could find the historic Caterpillar Ride (Buchholz),<br />

the Toboggan (Fischer), the flea circus from Birk<br />

(the previous owner, Hans Mathes from Nürnberg-<br />

Schweinau appeared in his home town in 1977 for the<br />

last time), and the swing from Eschenbacher.<br />

Therefore, the public almost automatically moved into<br />

the historic section with the usual separation between<br />

present Volksfest culture and the nostalgic section<br />

seamlessly blending; a concept both elegant and<br />

ingenious! In addition to the displayed tractors,<br />

several large organs (Roie/Frankfurt, Diebold/<br />

Augsburg, Kunstmann/Erlangen, Braun/Nürnberg,<br />

Schneider/Munich, Heitmann/Münster, Kinzler/<br />

42


Stuttgart, Kalb/Nürnberg,<br />

as well as the example of<br />

the Verein Nürnberger<br />

Straßenbahnfreunde, or<br />

Association of Nürnberg<br />

Tram Friends) took turns in<br />

playing music. If one also<br />

counted the two organs<br />

from Eschenbacher, the<br />

Kündiger example, the<br />

Perz organ and the<br />

Hartmann-Wunderle organ,<br />

they added up to the<br />

imposing number of 14<br />

examples ready to be<br />

played. Where is there<br />

more to offer?<br />

The visitors rediscovered<br />

crossbow shooting, curiously<br />

watched the<br />

tractor rarities presented<br />

by Peter Nolde and Sebastian<br />

Bichler, thoroughly<br />

admired the showman<br />

caravan from Lotte and<br />

Heinrich Feldl, built in<br />

1920, which accompanied<br />

the showman couple<br />

on their tours throughout<br />

Europe for almost 75<br />

years and was provided<br />

by Peter Münch. The large<br />

circus tent presented a<br />

colourful cornucopia from<br />

the showman world<br />

ranging from the past to the present day. The large<br />

books of memorabilia were a real crowd puller once<br />

again. Short written explanations at the exhibits<br />

provided the visitors with important information. A high<br />

number of members from the Showman Association<br />

dedicated themselves to the exhibition with Denny<br />

Morawski and Georg Schweizer being the tireless<br />

driving force. The Historische Gesellschaft Deutscher<br />

Schausteller e.V. as well as the Berlin showman and<br />

collector Rolf Hartmann also earned much praise for<br />

his support. An elegant and visually perfect solution<br />

was the tent entrance with the historic Walkthrough<br />

construction “Das Land des Lächelns” built up in front<br />

of it providing the motto for the exhibition. The<br />

exhibition was supplemented by the very well<br />

attended four-day model fair exhibition in a separate<br />

tent, the first-time presentation of traditional hot-air<br />

balloons accompanied by appropriate music, and the<br />

tractor meeting for the finale. The event was well worth<br />

seeing and an experience nobody should have<br />

missed. Currently, there are no plans to repeat this<br />

oganizational feat.<br />

NOSTALGIA<br />

The “Hurrican” with the<br />

serial number H110 from the<br />

Jacobi firm in Leipzig, 2014<br />

After almost 50 years, this author<br />

once again encountered a ride<br />

type he had been fascinated by in<br />

his childhood days at this year’s<br />

Spring Kleinmesse event in<br />

Leipzig. Way back then, his<br />

grandfather had repeatedly<br />

treated him to rides on the<br />

“Hurrican”, and watched his<br />

grandson enjoying himself as<br />

the boy raced through the sky in<br />

the rocket-shaped gondolas at a<br />

height of up to 8 metres. It was a<br />

compressed air ride from the<br />

“Hurricane X” series built by<br />

Klaus from Memmingen.<br />

Hurrican<br />

However, in Leipzig it was not the “Hurrican” with<br />

the serial number H73D, purchased from the<br />

Bremen Renoldi firm and operated mainly in<br />

southern Lower Saxony from 1963 to 1967 by<br />

Richard Franke from Braunschweig from the 1960s,<br />

but the Hurricane H110 built for the Fähtz firm in<br />

1963 and finally taken over by the Dessau Wieser<br />

firm after several changes of ownership. Wolfgang<br />

Wieser operated the compressed air ride from 1995<br />

to 2013. Since then, the ride was passed on within<br />

the family to Bettina and Nico Jacobi, who now<br />

lovingly care for the “Hurrican”. In addition to the<br />

compressed air ride, now presented at the Leipzig<br />

Kleinmesse, they also tour the “Pirates Caribbean”<br />

Miami and several concession stalls, mainly<br />

throughout Saxony-Anhalt and Saxony.<br />

With details such as the boarding lattice in front of the seat benches<br />

in the gondolas, the perfect sitting comfort inside the rocket, the<br />

hissing of compressed air during the fast – indeed decidedly racy –<br />

ride, and the fantastic ride experience in which the passenger<br />

controls the upwards and downward movement of the rocket, the<br />

attraction took older visitors back to their childhood days allowing<br />

them to re-experience these bygone days; a delightful “flashback”, so<br />

to speak, to the 1960s.<br />

Willy and Britta Fellerhoff purchased the ride, being rewired and equipped with new sockets to<br />

boasting a diameter of 12 metres, travelling be remounted at the centre of the ride during the<br />

up and down three hills and valleys, equipped with<br />

massive, richly carved wooden gondolas, from<br />

showman Mario Caspari after the Christmas<br />

Market in Gotha in 2012. Having purchased and<br />

taken over the ride Willy Fellerhoff began to<br />

thoroughly restore the ride, as it was in quite a wornout<br />

condition, and he felt that it should be presented<br />

in its original condition if at all possible. Before the<br />

gondolas were restored, the arms and supports<br />

were upgraded; that is to say, they were newly<br />

painted and equipped with new seat upholstery.<br />

year. The rounding board is also still being restored<br />

and all the decorative pictures are currently being<br />

overhauled and renewed. The platforms below the<br />

floor segments have been covered with motif foil<br />

and will be repainted over time. The paybox is some<br />

40 years old and comes from the “Das sündige<br />

Dorf” Funhouse that the Fellerhoff family used to<br />

tour. “As restoring the switchback takes a lot of time<br />

and is quite expensive, it can be carried out only by<br />

degrees, but the ride has already been successfully<br />

approved by the TÜV.<br />

For covering the gondola gaps<br />

and for the roof, new tarpaulins<br />

“Blue Hawaii”<br />

About a year ago, Reinhold<br />

Pistorius from Saarbrücken/<br />

Völklingen took over a Twister<br />

built by the Fähtz firm in 1983.<br />

Previously, the ride equipped<br />

with “Hollywood Star” gondolas<br />

had been operated by a French<br />

showman for many years, and<br />

then sold to the “Walygator”<br />

be ready to tour sometime soon. ■<br />

President Albert Ritter<br />

Volksfests in Flanders Recognised as an Intangible Cultural Heritage<br />

Huge Success for Belgian Showman Industry<br />

Flemish Minister for Culture Visits Joke Schauvliege Visits ”Sinksenfoor“ in Antwerp<br />

Volksfests in Flanders have been accepted as<br />

an intangible cultural heritage. This was announced<br />

by the Flemish Minister for Culture on<br />

the 23rd of June during a visit to the ”Sinksenfoor“<br />

in Antwerp. ESU-President Albert Ritter<br />

congratulated Belgian showman colleagues on<br />

this huge success.<br />

”Fairgrounds are culture“ The Flemish Cultural Minister Joke<br />

Schauvliege at the ”Sinksenfoor“. Left: ESU-Vice President Franck Delforge.<br />

Right: General Secretary Steve Severeyns.<br />

The recognition of the Volksfests by the Flemish<br />

Government is one of the prerequisites for the application<br />

for acceptance on the UNESCO intangible<br />

cultural listing.<br />

In her speech Cultural Minister Schauvliege firstly<br />

congratulated the Belgian showmen, for their convincing<br />

concept for an important contribution for<br />

the recognition of the Volksfests. A big fairground<br />

fan since childhood, the Minister spoke of her<br />

”warmest memories“ of the fairgrounds: the boisterous<br />

atmosphere, the attractions and the gloss<br />

of every visit to the grounds. The fairground was a<br />

meeting place for many. Comfort and fun go hand<br />

in hand during a visit to the fairgrounds, since the<br />

middle ages. And even though much has changed<br />

since then, the atmosphere on the fairs has<br />

remained the same: ambience, togetherness and<br />

relaxation.<br />

With a wink Joke Schauvliege also told of the romantic<br />

meaning of the fairgrounds – after all just<br />

how many love stories have been written there<br />

and how many pairs had first met at a fairground.<br />

As finale and with a lot of applause for her well<br />

thought out speech, the Cultural Minister Schauvliege<br />

reminded everyone of the work involved in<br />

the future for the acceptance of Volksfests on the<br />

national list of cultural heritage, as it must be preserved<br />

. The history of the 2,500 Volksfests in Belgian<br />

must be continuously written.<br />

Tradition must be maintained, and<br />

handed onto the next generations.<br />

Joke Schauvliege assured showmen<br />

of her support. President Albert<br />

Ritter called the decision of the<br />

Flemish government ”an important<br />

signal for neighbouring<br />

European countries to protect their<br />

Volksfests as a cultural heritage in<br />

the long run.“ The Volksfests and<br />

Christmas markets in Europe are<br />

not unique only because of long<br />

tradition. Volksfests have had a<br />

considerable influence on the development<br />

of society, socialisation<br />

and tourism for many centuries in<br />

Europe. ”And we showmen are the<br />

supporting pillars of the events“, emphasised the<br />

ESU-President.<br />

General Secretary Steve Severeyns (right) and<br />

Flemish Cultural Minister Joke Schauvliege.<br />

The ”Sinksenfoor“ is one of the oldest Volksfests<br />

in Europe.<br />

Keyword: Cultural Heritage<br />

Within the fames of the regulatory powers of<br />

UNESCO there is in addition to the world culture<br />

heritage to which for example Amsterdam's<br />

famous ring of canals, the medieval city of Bruges,<br />

and the Cologne Dom also belong, other<br />

possibilities to protect immaterial cultural heritage<br />

through UNESCO. According to UNESCO<br />

it's not only outstanding constructions and natural<br />

sites that are worth protecting for future<br />

generations. Cultural diversity is also reflected in<br />

living forms of expression such as Volksfests,<br />

customs, dance and theatre, music, languages<br />

and craftsman techniques. In 2003 the UNESCO-<br />

General Conference finalised the preservation<br />

of intangible cultural heritage. After being ratified<br />

by 30 countries, it became effective on the<br />

20th April 2006.<br />

PORTRAIT<br />

CRAZY TRIP<br />

On 5 th April Joe Probst from<br />

Güterfelde near Potsdam introduced<br />

his newly purchased<br />

attraction, the used two-level<br />

Walkthrough construction<br />

“Crazy Trip”, at the Frühjahrs-<br />

Jahrmarkt in Halle/Saale. Probst<br />

is just 22 years old and founded<br />

his own showman enterprise<br />

with a Continental pick stand and<br />

a pick up trolley three years ago.<br />

Last November, he took over the<br />

Walkthrough construction that<br />

had been kept in storage for<br />

quite some time, from Ilona and<br />

Jürgen Parniske from Leipzig.<br />

Proud new owner of the<br />

“Crazy Trip”: Joe Probst<br />

Even though the attraction was in perfectly preserved<br />

visual, technical and ready-foroperation<br />

condition (despite rumours to the<br />

contrary), it was nonetheless redesigned after the<br />

takeover. All the effects were removed and replaced<br />

by new ones. The new fun effects include,<br />

among others, a suspension bridge, a broom<br />

carousel and different floor effects; and all, just as<br />

is the case with the new outdoor course, with<br />

various obstacles, were built by Joe Probst himself.<br />

Currently, a short labyrinth is being built into the<br />

attraction. Having negotiated the last obstacle on<br />

the upper level, visitors reach the exit via a spiral<br />

slide or staircases.<br />

The Funhouse was built as “Geisterhölle” by the<br />

showman Lutz Hofmann and his<br />

father-in-law, Günter Topf, from<br />

Mansfeld in the southern Harz<br />

Uplands, as well as two ride manufacturers<br />

in 1987/88. Günter Topf<br />

was a technically-skilled showman,<br />

who together with several experienced<br />

craft enterprises built the<br />

“Holliday Star” Waltzer ride in the<br />

early 1950s and the two-level “Lachhaus”<br />

in 1987, according to his<br />

ideas and drafts. After minor<br />

revisions, the construction of the<br />

Lachhaus was taken over for<br />

building the “Geisterhölle”. The<br />

upper level is lifted by four hydraulic<br />

cylinders; the lower level has two<br />

bays. The undercarriage and the<br />

skeleton structure with the<br />

hydraulic system were built<br />

by the Leipzig Paselt firm also<br />

way back then. Next the<br />

skeleton structure was<br />

sheeted by the Brausemann<br />

firm. While all the other work<br />

was carried out by Lutz<br />

Hofmann and Günter Topf,<br />

the showman artist Andrea<br />

Patzer was engaged for the<br />

imaginative artwork, successfully<br />

passing her first<br />

major practical test. In the<br />

winter of 1991/92 the attraction<br />

was redesigned as the<br />

“Crazy Trip”. The entire front<br />

was newly painted, a spiral<br />

tube was installed from the<br />

upper level, and a speaking,<br />

water-spitting tree was put up<br />

in front of the attraction. One<br />

year later, Lutz Hofmann sold<br />

the “Crazy Trip” to Ilona and<br />

Details of the new outside course<br />

and the spiral slide<br />

Jürgen Parniske from<br />

Leipzig, who first installed<br />

new effects and had the<br />

front newly painted. In the<br />

winter of 2001/2002 the<br />

“Crazy Trip” was redesigned<br />

once again and<br />

was equipped with a 20 x<br />

3 metre extension to the<br />

front with four water basins<br />

and illuminated fountains.<br />

Due to the showman enterprise switching to smaller<br />

attractions, the “Crazy Trip” was shut down and put<br />

into storage two years ago. After another owner<br />

changeover last year, the attraction was presented<br />

in tip-top condition and well received by the public<br />

at the Frühjahrs-Jahrmarkt in Halle/Saale. This<br />

season, Joe Probst will also present the “Crazy Trip”<br />

at Volksfest and city festival events in Brandenburg,<br />

Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia. The construction,<br />

requiring two transports (1 centre trailer and 1 small<br />

baggage van) for relocating, has ground measurements<br />

of 18 x 7 metres, is 9.50 metres high, and has<br />

electrical requirements of 25 kW.<br />

■<br />

The attraction changing<br />

over the years: 1988 – in its<br />

original condition as “Geisterhölle”,<br />

1992 – as “Crazy Trip”<br />

after its first redesign, and in<br />

1998 – having been newly<br />

painted once again<br />

MODEL CONSTRUCTON<br />

A view of the Lego<br />

fairground from Artur Fritscher<br />

Many things can be built from the<br />

colourful LEGO plastic bricks,<br />

panels, gearwheels and sundry<br />

small parts – even powered<br />

models with different rotating<br />

movements and functions. At<br />

present there are some 78,000<br />

different components in 96<br />

colours, and they can all be combined<br />

and put together in any<br />

way one likes. Twenty-three year<br />

old mechanical engineering<br />

student, Artur Fritscher from<br />

Cologne, has been busying himself<br />

with this construction kit<br />

system for 17 years; in recent<br />

years specialising in building<br />

fully functional fairground<br />

models.<br />

Text: Rolf Orschel<br />

Lego Fairground<br />

day he took his first ride on a “Breakdance”.<br />

Ever since that very day, he has<br />

been obsessed by the idea of building a<br />

perfect model of this ride from LEGO<br />

bricks. During the last 6 years, he has<br />

His passion for the popular toy brand was succeeded in building an impressive, fully functional<br />

aroused in 1997, when he was given his first Breakdance model - and without a specific example<br />

construction kit for his 6 th birthday. Visiting a model to model it on. The ride was designed according to<br />

construction fair one year later, he saw fairground his own ideas; only the backflash was modelled<br />

models assembled from the colourful bricks for the after the example of the Piontek firm, the design of<br />

first time, and deeply enthralled by them, he began which he likes very much.<br />

to build a ride from LEGO bricks that very day. Some At the same time Artur Fritscher built a 1.20 m Ferris<br />

years later he built an “Airwolf”, “Take Off”, “Flying Wheel on three centre trailers, a “Cadillac” dodgem<br />

Circus”, “Frisbee”, some dodgem tracks and Miami track, a Jet Ride, a kiddie carousel, the “Glückshaus”<br />

constructions, as well as a “Top Scan”, closely resembling<br />

the original rides. Artur Fritscher also built hook-a-duck, the “Spiel Shop” arcade machine, the<br />

continental pick stand, the Dutch “Lucky Duck”<br />

vehicles and many other models right up until the Chinese snack booth “Mandarin”, a beverage outlet,<br />

Ready to go: The<br />

“Breakdance” centre trailer<br />

a crêpe stall, an ice cream stall, a pick up trolley,<br />

including a matching vehicle fleet for each of these<br />

models! It took him between half a year and 2 years<br />

to build each model.<br />

In addition to further fairground models, Fritscher is<br />

currently building a major ride, which is to be<br />

finished this year. Prior to building the rides and concession<br />

stalls, the model builder takes many photos<br />

and obtains the relevant measurements and drafts.<br />

Due to the shape and size of the LEGO bricks he has<br />

to make compromises every now and then, and<br />

occasionally he even has to process individual<br />

bricks to achieve a perfect finish. Apart from<br />

adhesive decoration elements and gearwheels<br />

which have to be selectively fixed, the rides and concession<br />

stalls can be dismantled. All the rides are<br />

powered by standard LEGO motors, and technical<br />

elements were used for the gears. A number of<br />

LEGO railway transformer stations supply the<br />

models with a 9 volt direct current. Initially the model<br />

builder purchased construction sets and a<br />

complete collection, from which he could not<br />

assemble all the components though. However, as<br />

this kind of material procurement was too expensive<br />

in the long run, he has for some time been purchasing<br />

suitable components in special internet shops,<br />

where he can search for particular colours<br />

according to his specific needs. The turquoise bricks<br />

for the Breakdance vehicle models cost the model<br />

builder a veritable fortune, as the bricks - no longer<br />

produced for some time now - are coveted rarities.<br />

Three years ago, Artur Fritscher displayed his fairground<br />

models at the “Circus & <strong>Kirmes</strong>modellbau”<br />

exhibition in Oer-Erkenschwick for the first time,<br />

which immediately proved a big success. In 2012 he<br />

designed a 7 m 2 miniature fairground with a total of<br />

1,500 LEGO figures, so-called “minifigs”, which he<br />

has presented at a number of model construction<br />

and LEGO exhibitions in Germany and France ever<br />

since. This year the construction will be presented<br />

at, among other venues, the “Inspiration Modellbau”<br />

in Mainz from 19 th to 21 st September and at the<br />

Modellbautage in Aschersleben from 22 nd to 23 rd<br />

November. Artur Fritscher also occasionally decorates<br />

shop windows with his models, and will this year<br />

display a Christmas diorama made of LEGO bricks<br />

in the Römerapotheke in Arloff, a district of Bad<br />

Münstereifel in North-Rhine Westphalia, and would<br />

like to present his fairground models also at other<br />

model construction exhibitions and trade shows, as<br />

well as undertaking more shop window commissions.<br />

Extra Gigante" can't be ridden in real life, because<br />

it describes the vehicle in Norway's most<br />

successful film "The Pinchcliffe Grand Prix" from Ivo<br />

Caprino.<br />

The vehicle was designed by Kjell Austen, one of<br />

the most well known illustrator and cartoonist in<br />

Norway. Although there is a replica fit to drive, it has<br />

to be satisfied with only 550 Horse Power – due to<br />

the intervention of Formula One racing legend Niki<br />

Lauda.<br />

Already three years ago there were first plans for<br />

erecting a large coaster for this year's anniversary;<br />

however definite plans only came into being a year<br />

ago.<br />

The first vegetation clearance began in the summer<br />

of 2013, in order to complete a large part of the work<br />

as soon as possible, due to the difficulties of working<br />

outdoors in winter with temperatures of up to<br />

minus 30°.<br />

Thus it's even nicer for visitors to the Hunderfossen<br />

Familiepark to be able at long last to take a ride in<br />

the famous “Il Tempo Extra Gigante” cars. The new<br />

coaster attraction is already visible from the adjacent<br />

dual carriageway E6, although due to its dark<br />

green supports it blends into the surrounding<br />

forest and only the glaring red tracks can be recognised.<br />

The real optical highlight however is the<br />

currently worldwide most elaborately designed<br />

coaster train.<br />

66


In order to remain as close as possible proportionally<br />

to the original design from Kjell Austen and to<br />

be able to realize the colossal sized bonnet and<br />

mudguards, a complete row of seats were waived<br />

in the front car – so 14 instead of the regular 16 passengers<br />

speed through the richly curved course.<br />

The best place to be is – and where else should it<br />

be – the first row. It's only there that guests have a<br />

detailed cockpit together with plastic steering<br />

wheel, various knobs as well as a functioning gyroscope.<br />

The realized design comes from Heinrich<br />

Richter from Zierer. A special gimmick is also a<br />

functioning horn in the front car, which is very popular<br />

with many of the passengers – at least the beginning<br />

of the ride!<br />

But at the very latest after climbing the 25 metres<br />

high lift hill, which due to its hillside location affords<br />

a very wide view into the valley, most prefer the restraint<br />

rather than the horn, especially when going<br />

through the right angled first drop, at the foot of<br />

which the highest speed of 65 km/h is reached. This<br />

is followed immediately by a 540° ascent helix to<br />

the right, and after a short breathing time, the ride<br />

beings again with a strongly angled right curve,<br />

with passengers being pressed strongly into their<br />

seats by a 270° left curve travelling near to the<br />

ground. This is followed by a near-miss with the corner<br />

of the station building, where the train absolves<br />

a strongly banked curve only a few centimetres<br />

away from the building. The ride experience is<br />

rounded off by a small bump and Trimbrakes, a<br />

right hand curve, and the final brakes. This layout<br />

has already been realized in the German<br />

Schwabenpark; slight changes have been limited<br />

to being only at the end of the ride. In comparison<br />

to "Force One" at Schwabenpark, "Il Tempo Extra<br />

Gigante" has been designed for two-train operation.<br />

Actually however,<br />

only one train<br />

is in operation.<br />

Perhaps the best designed<br />

coaster train in the world –<br />

definitely unusual and<br />

elaborate<br />

67


Fitting to the new attraction:<br />

the merchandising articles<br />

The station area and<br />

the troll theming in the<br />

complete park area<br />

Nevertheless "Il Tempo Extra Gigante" is completely<br />

different to the "Force One" in Germany. Due to the<br />

hillside position the station is underground, whilst<br />

visitors use the roof of the station as a viewing platform<br />

simultaneously. And so viewers also get their<br />

money's worth as they can see the attraction very<br />

well from there. Additionally a lot of glass covering<br />

has been used in the waiting area, so that one can<br />

have close contact with the ride already, increasing<br />

anticipation immensely. The ride also appears to be<br />

loftier due to its hillside position but is not so present<br />

in the park due to the reserved colours as well<br />

as the hardly noticeable ride sounds. The still present<br />

vibrations at Schwabenpark are notably less<br />

here, and fit perfectly to the imaginative racing cars.<br />

Other super effects are the stroboscope lights in the<br />

station building, and the illuminated lamps on the<br />

vehicles that are equipped with LEDs that are lit up<br />

the whole day (charging up for the evenings).<br />

Sum up: With "Il Tempo Extra Gigante", the second<br />

largest individual investment in the park's history of<br />

around 3.8 million Euro, the Hunderfossen Family<br />

<strong>Park</strong> did everything just right. In addition to the very<br />

successful embedding in the park grounds on the<br />

slope, the best designed roller coaster train has<br />

also been realized. The ride itself is speedy but family<br />

friendly. And due to the required and relatively<br />

low minimum passenger size of 120 centimetres,<br />

the new coaster is ideal for almost the complete<br />

family.<br />

Interview with Hogne Høstmælingen<br />

Mr. Høstmælingen, first of all congratulations<br />

on your anniversary season. How long has<br />

the Hunderfossen Family <strong>Park</strong> existed, and how<br />

many visitors do you have annually?<br />

We are celebrating our 30-year anniversary<br />

this year, in other words we have been open since<br />

1984. Currently we have around 300,000 visitors a<br />

year. With that we are the second largest park in<br />

68


Norway, only Tusenfryd and Dyreparken have more<br />

guests, but there are definitely more people living<br />

in the direct catchment area there.<br />

What in your opinion is the difference between<br />

the family park Hunderfossen and other<br />

parks in Norway?<br />

The location of the park<br />

and with that the coaster, offer<br />

beautiful views<br />

Direct comparison is difficult as there are<br />

undoubtedly more tourists there as in the region<br />

around Lillehammer.<br />

That's true of course. On the other hand the<br />

Lillehammer region is very interesting as a tourist<br />

area for Norwegian residents both in the summer<br />

and winter, because of good skiing conditions on<br />

the Hafjell Mountain, and in the near surroundings<br />

the world's best white water rafting can be found.<br />

The region is visited annually by around two million<br />

guests, and so we are open in summer and winter,<br />

in particular in the peak season with our troll nights,<br />

during which time our employees dress up as trolls.<br />

During the winter our outdoor constructions are<br />

closed, compensated for by sledding trails and<br />

other actions at the park.<br />

We attempt to extend the portfolio for our<br />

target groups correspondingly, and we place great<br />

importance on the theming. Additionally we are in<br />

cooperation with companies such as Mercedes-<br />

Benz or Volvo, in order to be able to offer our<br />

younger guests a ride in true-to-original small versions<br />

of the Mercedes SLS AMG or Volvo trucks.<br />

And our larger rides such as the indoor Freefall<br />

"Trollfallet" from abc rides have been designed by<br />

Farmer Attractions. The theme Edutainment is also<br />

very important to us. In addition to a large sciencecentre,<br />

we also have stop-offs on our tractor-train<br />

where with animatronics and video screens the procedures<br />

on a farm are explained. Primarily though<br />

Hunderfossen has been thematically dedicated to<br />

trolls and Norwegian fairytales – and that makes it<br />

something really special.<br />

coaster (to the right is the<br />

<strong>Park</strong> Manager Hogne<br />

Høstmælingen sitting in his<br />

favourite place in the front<br />

I found your Troll-Restaurant very impressive,<br />

offering a very nice atmosphere and<br />

good food. How important in your opinion is the<br />

theme gastronomy at parks?<br />

The "Trollsalen"-restaurant was awarded the<br />

title of best park restaurant in Norway last year. In<br />

my opinion gastronomy is very important in order to<br />

have satisfied visitors – which is a very important<br />

criterion for us. For this reason we have for example<br />

no ban on food brought in and consumed at the<br />

park. We even offer BBQ facilities where guests can<br />

grill their own food, and can also purchase baked<br />

goods from our own park bakery. On the other hand<br />

we offer in addition to the classic fast foods also<br />

high quality gastronomy, which is of the best quality/price<br />

ratio. We also tried to establish an additional<br />

offer of healthy foods at the park, but this<br />

was not particularly well received by the guests.<br />

By the way trolls: whilst a large part of the<br />

park is designed with Norwegian fairytales and<br />

trolls, your new main attraction has a completely<br />

different theme. How did this come about?<br />

Designing a coaster with a troll theme is not so<br />

easy. We wanted however to use a typical Norwegian<br />

theme, so we fell back onto the car design<br />

from Kjell Aukrust which had played a big role in the<br />

very well known Stop-Motion-Film in this country<br />

"Flåklypa Grand Prix", from Ivo Caprino. To this end<br />

we needed a company that could implement our<br />

design wishes. We had spoken to quite a number<br />

of manufacturers and finally found the correct partner<br />

in Zierer and Heinrich Richter, who could design<br />

the train according to the original drafts.<br />

Did you test other deliveries of the Zierer’s<br />

Elevated Seat Coasters in the run-up?<br />

We took a closer look at "Polar X-Press" at<br />

Legoland Billund, "ForceOne" at Schwabenpark<br />

and "Verbolten" at Busch Gardens Williamsburg,<br />

which together with the ride characteristics finally<br />

convinced us.<br />

Up until now you have only used one train<br />

operation on the "Il Tempo extra Gigante" but<br />

have all the systems for two-train operation.<br />

How has the visitor number changed since the<br />

opening of the attraction?<br />

In comparison to last year our visitor numbers<br />

have risen by a high two-digit percent figure and<br />

the peak season is yet to come – we are therefore<br />

very satisfied. The national media presence is also<br />

very high.<br />

Thank you very much for your answers. We<br />

wish you all the best for this season. ■<br />

INDOOR<br />

Attraction and nature<br />

united – that's the storyline,<br />

and that's the attraction<br />

Normally every theme park<br />

makes sure it offers as many attractions<br />

as possible that are<br />

independent of weather to its<br />

guests, so that even on rainy<br />

days enough carefree amusement<br />

is available to them. However<br />

there’s really never any<br />

bad weather in Germany’s sunniest<br />

region, and that’s the reason<br />

that the new indoor experience<br />

world will not be marketed<br />

as an indoor experience initially,<br />

but as a new and terrific experience<br />

attraction at Europa-<br />

<strong>Park</strong>. And “Arthur” is that without<br />

a doubt, and much more!<br />

Text & Photos: Frank Lanfer<br />

The new theme area is<br />

reached by a bridge<br />

Arthur<br />

Finally “Arthur” opened in July 2014 almost three<br />

months later than it originally was planned.<br />

Manager Michael Kreft von Byern explained with a<br />

twinkle in his eye: “We promised our park guests a<br />

new attraction for spring 2014, and in fact could<br />

open shortly before the calendrical summer<br />

beginning.” <strong>Park</strong> Manager Miro Gronau is also<br />

happy about this fact: “We’ve spent a number of<br />

years mulling over this perfect ride, and are simply<br />

just happy that it’s here now.”<br />

And the waiting was well worthwhile. Whilst other<br />

parks open new ride constructions earlier and the<br />

appropriate theming is only completed during the<br />

running year or even in the following season,<br />

Europa-<strong>Park</strong> definitely wanted to present a complete<br />

experience right from day one – which in the<br />

case of “Arthur” definitely makes a lot of sense<br />

because the theming belongs with the ride!<br />

The idea of ride and theming came from Junior<br />

Manager Michael Mack: “We wanted in particular<br />

to produce a special attraction for our large number<br />

of French guests.” And it’s thanks to him that<br />

the contact with film director Luc Besson came<br />

about, who not only produced the animation trilogy<br />

“Arthur” that is hardly known outside of France, but<br />

also the film sensation “The Fifth Element”. But even<br />

without any knowledge of films, the “Arthur”-ride is<br />

a special experience between a coaster ride and a<br />

theme ride.<br />

72


The four-minute ride begins with a film clip from the<br />

first Arthur film. Here also every non-French person<br />

will also understand that they are zooming into the<br />

world of small animals that live in the grass at<br />

ground level. The train travels uphill in a spiral form,<br />

with oversized bees and butterflies passing by. This<br />

is followed by the first meeting with the Minimoys,<br />

but suddenly a pit bull appears. The evasion<br />

manoeuvre leads directly into the mouth of a taxicaterpillar,<br />

and travels for the first time into the<br />

open. Following a 180° curve, the train disappears<br />

once again inside. On a second screen, a film clip<br />

from the second Arthur-film can be seen, before the<br />

coaster train flies with its passengers over the<br />

“Paradise Alley” scene. After surprising vibration<br />

effects, the cars glide through the circular hall. The<br />

ride then energetically goes into the second and<br />

longest outside sequence that even<br />

leads over the Ely rivulet – it’s the first<br />

time in the history of the park that<br />

available and appealing nature has been<br />

included in an attraction. The train nears<br />

a beehive and after a curve the station is<br />

reached again where passengers alight<br />

onto a synchronised, walking-pace moving<br />

walkway.<br />

However, there’s more to discover under<br />

the 16 metres high dome of “Arthur – Im<br />

Königreich der Minimoys”: the ten<br />

metres high “Poppy Tower” is hidden behind<br />

huge poppies, where all visitors<br />

look like small Minimoys. The tower that<br />

has a drop height of eight metres stems<br />

from Zierer and offers not only children a<br />

first class freefall feeling at Europa-<strong>Park</strong>.<br />

Another attraction is the “Mül Müls<br />

Karussell” from Zamperla with two-seat<br />

gondolas that are partly covered by<br />

plush fur. The portfolio is rounded off with two<br />

slides from atlantics, the small “Minos Spielecke”<br />

from eibe, a chill out room, and “Jack’s Deli Snack”.<br />

Aditionally, there are also 50 animatronics from<br />

Heimotion. Further companies involved in the<br />

theming were AAB, TAA, P&P, Neverland, Kraftwerk<br />

und Rockworks.<br />

From the park planning point of view, the “Arthur”<br />

area was to be an extension of the fairytale forest<br />

to bring it back to life, as although the section was<br />

elaborately renovated over the past years, it was<br />

not always well frequented. This has also been<br />

hugely successful as shown during the first<br />

opening days. The earlier and French-born park<br />

architect Frederik Pastuszak, who was Creative<br />

Director of the project confirmed: “The visitor flow<br />

showed a significant increase.”<br />

From a technical point of view “Arthur” is the world’s<br />

first Inverted Powered Coaster – in other words a<br />

coaster permanently powered by electricity and<br />

with non-freely swinging hanging gondolas. Each<br />

train has three 4-seat passenger carriers that are a<br />

little bit less than three metres wide, and also have<br />

an incredible more than three metres axis centredistance,<br />

offering unimagined freedom. Unique<br />

also worldwide is the control system of the Powered<br />

Coaster, which allows the trains to travel at<br />

various speeds on the open course or even to stop<br />

completely, for example to view a short film sequence.<br />

<strong>Special</strong>-effect seats known up until now<br />

only in 4D-cinemas have<br />

also been used for the first<br />

time on a coaster: they<br />

vibrate when passing certain<br />

scenes. Added also is the<br />

controlled horizontal rotation<br />

of the gondolas that (seemingly)<br />

rotate independently<br />

of each other, giving a varied<br />

ride dynamic together with the quite curved coaster<br />

tracks. Although the cars can be rotated individually<br />

by the press of a button shortly before the<br />

second open-air section so that passengers may<br />

experience a sideward and backward ride, the<br />

system most probably only becomes accessible for<br />

frequent riders due to the already permanent<br />

motion sequence.<br />

Not so decisive for a Powered Coaster is the height<br />

difference, however between the lowest and<br />

highest points of the track there is after all eight<br />

metres. And with a total height of 13 metres, the<br />

visual stimulus is definitely surprising, particularly<br />

74


when travelling through the dome and the pending<br />

two open-air sequences. The attraction has been<br />

given the green light by the TÜV for children from<br />

four years of age and with a minimum 100 centimetres<br />

height.<br />

“Arthur” is a surprising (indoor) ride, but much more<br />

than that. It is a kiddie ride but reaches more than<br />

just this target group. It is a French attraction, but<br />

can also be understood by other nationalities – to<br />

characterize “Arthur” is not so easy. Quite simply a<br />

résumé is not necessary: it is a surprisingly exciting<br />

and dynamic family-indoor-theme-coaster like<br />

no other. And it will without a doubt be taken note<br />

of by Disney and Universal, which with their megaexpensive<br />

“Harry Potter” and “Ratatouille” attractions<br />

didn’t produce a particularly exciting overall<br />

ride experience. Added to this, the Mack prototype<br />

is extendable to include every customer wish – for<br />

example open downhill sections could be integrated,<br />

in order to emphasise the coaster feeling more.<br />

Europa-<strong>Park</strong> however didn’t want a thrill ride, but a<br />

ride that is equally attractive to both children and<br />

young adults – a tightrope walk that appears to be<br />

very successful here, when watching the reaction<br />

of the riding guests. One can only offer<br />

congratulations!<br />

■<br />

The two other rides are the<br />

"Poppy Tower" from Zierer and<br />

the "Mül-Müls Karussell"<br />

from Zamperla<br />

Everybody is thrilled<br />

about the opening of "Arthur –<br />

Metallbau Emmeln<br />

Nestled in the picturesque and<br />

quintessentially <strong>English</strong> landscape<br />

of the South Downs lies a<br />

family owned zoo. Not far from<br />

the seaside towns of Brighton<br />

and Eastbourne, Drusillas <strong>Park</strong><br />

started life in 1925 as a tea garden<br />

attracting motorists on a<br />

pleasant drive through the<br />

countryside to a stop for a spot<br />

of afternoon tea.<br />

The entrance to the main<br />

attraction and the operating<br />

family (f.l.t.r.): Cassandra,<br />

Caroline, Laurence, Oliver and<br />

Christine Smith<br />

Faced with growing competition, the owners<br />

Douglas and Drusilla Ann decided to add a<br />

small zoo. Among the early residents were a<br />

kangaroo, a chimpanzee and a ring-tailed lemur.<br />

The zoo helped to make the tea gardens a huge<br />

success, which attracted a great deal of attention<br />

– for example Entrepreneur Reginald Goddard<br />

visited the tea gardens to seek advice from<br />

Douglas Ann on how to set up a similar venture<br />

which then opened in 1931 as the Chessington<br />

Zoo. That venture exists today as Chessington<br />

World of Adventures, a well known theme park<br />

belonging to the Merlin Entertainments Group.<br />

After the Second World War the park entered its<br />

next stage of evolution with the addition of<br />

“Kiddies Corner” with pedal cars, climbing frames<br />

and the park's first ride, a Switchback.<br />

In the 1960's the park found itself struggling to<br />

compete with the rising popularity of drivethrough<br />

safaris such as Longleat and Windsor<br />

Safari <strong>Park</strong> (now Legoland Windsor). Under the<br />

guidance of Douglas Ann's son, Michael,<br />

Drusillas <strong>Park</strong> was promoted under the slogan “a<br />

child's first zoo”, a slogan which fits equally well<br />

today. The zoo was expanded with the introduction<br />

of flamingos, penguins, a rare breeds farm,<br />

76


PORTRAIT<br />

capuchin monkeys and tamarinds. The tea rooms<br />

were no longer the main focus; instead the zoo<br />

was the priority.<br />

In 1997 the Ann family sold Drusillas <strong>Park</strong> to<br />

Laurence and Christine Smith. The husband and<br />

wife team quickly introduced many new animals<br />

to the zoo including racoons, bats, mongoose and<br />

prairie dogs. In 2007 a well known character appeared<br />

in the park with the signing of a 10 year<br />

contract with HIT Entertainment bringing “Thomas<br />

and Friends” to Drusillas. It was the first time the<br />

kids' favourite would be seen "real" in a European<br />

attraction. Thomas provides train rides around the<br />

zoo and past scenes from the books much to the<br />

delight of youngsters, especially when the Fat<br />

Controller also appears to make sure Thomas is<br />

running on time.<br />

And now on the 18 th May 2014 another well known<br />

character has made her European park debut at<br />

Drusillas <strong>Park</strong>. For the first time outside of Asia,<br />

families can step into the cartoon world of “Hello<br />

Kitty”. The Japanese character created in 1974<br />

has become a global brand. According to the<br />

stories, Hello Kitty was born in London not far from<br />

Drusillas <strong>Park</strong>, so it seems natural she would have<br />

a Secret Garden nearby.<br />

Topping 1million BP, “Hello Kitty Secret Garden” is<br />

the biggest investment in the park’s 89 year<br />

history, and harbours three new ride constructions.<br />

Of course there is also “Hello Kitty's House”<br />

for that all important meet-and-greet opportunity.<br />

And at one end of her house is her Beauty Parlour.<br />

Wonderfully designed to look like a real beauty<br />

parlour, it's in lots of pink and scaled down to kids'<br />

size. In the parlour, little ones can have their faces<br />

painted with the design of Hello Kitty's face seeming<br />

very popular. In addition to the “Hello Kitty's<br />

House” and a gazebo with a Hello Kitty statue, the<br />

area has little in the way of structural theming.<br />

Instead, the new land takes advantage of the<br />

area's name and the early history of the park with<br />

lots of traditional British flower<br />

borders creating a colourful<br />

garden.<br />

All the rides feature Hello Kitty<br />

in some form. The “Hopper<br />

Ride”, a Zamperla Jumpin' Star,<br />

features the cat’s head on the<br />

top. The teapot on the mini<br />

Zamperla “Tea Cups” has Hello<br />

Kitty peeking out.<br />

But the “Car Ride” from Metallbau<br />

Emmeln is the most extensively<br />

themed of all the<br />

rides. The individual cars have<br />

a cat shape, and the surprisingly<br />

fast drive takes visitors<br />

through several tunnels, past<br />

shaped topiaries, around a<br />

large water fountain, and<br />

through the lovingly maintained<br />

flower gardens.<br />

Just like the staff in the zoo area,<br />

those working in “Hello Kitty<br />

Secret Garden” are wonderfully<br />

friendly and cheerful, helping to<br />

create a fun and happy atmosphere.<br />

Exactly what parents are<br />

looking for on a family day out<br />

with young kids.<br />

Naturally a beauty parlour<br />

can't be missing<br />

77


The two "Hello Kitty"<br />

attractions from Zamperla<br />

Drusillas <strong>Park</strong> is laid out in such a way that one follows<br />

a continuous path through the zoo, venturing<br />

past and through themed enclosures that allow<br />

visitors to get up close to many varieties of small<br />

animals. At the end of the trail there is a large area<br />

of play structures, indoor soft play, bouncy castles,<br />

and now “Hello Kitty Secret Garden”. There is<br />

a little short-cut that gets guests to the rides much<br />

quicker, which is worth taking advantage of as<br />

naturally the new land is busier later in the day as<br />

families reach the end of the zoo trail.<br />

Despite being a character typically loved by girls,<br />

the choice of rides appeal to all children although<br />

it would appear that girls are the ones who get<br />

most excited by the prospect of visiting Hello Kitty.<br />

Drusillas <strong>Park</strong> is a bit of a hidden gem that's been<br />

much loved by those nearby for many decades.<br />

No doubt the introduction of a major brand to the<br />

park will attract much more wide spread attention<br />

boosting attendance. “Hello Kitty Secret Garden”<br />

may not be the largest of the branded areas to<br />

have opened in the UK over the past couple of<br />

years, but then the park isn't the largest zoo in the<br />

UK either. The size, choice of rides, and indeed<br />

the chosen theme, fit well with the early idea that<br />

Drusillas <strong>Park</strong> is “a child's first zoo”.<br />

Interview with Laurence Smith<br />

How did you decide on the Hello Kitty<br />

brand?<br />

We saw lots of children walking around the<br />

park wearing Hello Kitty hats, t-shirts and bags so<br />

decided to investigate the brand. We then realised<br />

just how massive it is and how popular. It also<br />

complemented our Thomas the Tank Engine train.<br />

So we approached the London agents Fluid World<br />

to suggest a Hello Kitty land at Drusillas. It all took<br />

a while to organise but we signed the deal in June<br />

2013 and could open a year later.<br />

This is your first venture into rides. How<br />

has the project gone?<br />

Very successfully, it’s been really popular with<br />

our visitors and has added an extra dimension to<br />

our park. It's also increased the value for money<br />

aspect of a day at Drusillas, which was a key<br />

priority for us.<br />

What was it like working with the ride<br />

manufacturers and theming companies?<br />

No problem. Zamperla were excellent and so<br />

were Metallbau Emmeln - who we dealt with before<br />

when they built Thomas. We had dealt with<br />

both theming companies before so that made life<br />

easy - RMA and Meticulous.<br />

Was it more challenging than introducing<br />

new animals to the park?<br />

usual last minute rush that seems unavoidable<br />

however well you plan things in advance.<br />

Will we be seeing more rides in the park?<br />

Not sure yet but it's something we are considering<br />

but the zoo is the heart of Drusillas and<br />

we don't want to lose that.<br />

Thomas and his Friends<br />

was realized for the first time<br />

worldwide at Drusillas <strong>Park</strong><br />

Not really just a bit different. There was still the<br />

Thank you very much for the interview. ■<br />

SANTORINI FANTASY<br />

The Santorini Theme <strong>Park</strong> that<br />

opened last year was extended<br />

by a new water park at the end<br />

of 2013. Both are located directly<br />

next to the Cha-Am Premium<br />

Outlet Mall in Hua Hin near<br />

Bangkok, and are all owned by<br />

the same company.<br />

The first building phase comprising of a 16,000<br />

m 2 sized ground area contains 12 water slides,<br />

a water playground, and a wave pool for an approximate<br />

investment amount of 2.3 million Euro. The<br />

Santorini Water <strong>Park</strong> Fantasy has been designed<br />

for a capacity of up to 3,500 visitors, with the park<br />

design and all the slides stemming from Polin.<br />

Highlights amongst the water slides are the repeatedly<br />

award-winning 15 metres high "King<br />

Cobra" in snake form, the translucent "Looping<br />

Rocket" with an almost twofold (horizontal) helix, the<br />

"Space Shuttle" with a huge closed sequence, the<br />

"Freefall", and the "Bowl"-slide.<br />

The facility was conceived by Supoj Tantichirasakul,<br />

Chairman of Pena House Public Co. Ltd.<br />

He is known in the fashion world as a clothing manufacturer,<br />

but is also well respected in the business<br />

world for his creative thinking in the development of<br />

new concepts for tourism. He plans to extend the<br />

whole region for the tourist industry, as already<br />

almost 20% of visitors come from overseas. ■<br />

SEA WORLD AQUATICA<br />

WATERPARK<br />

Text:<br />

The water park that opened in 2008 in Orlando<br />

received a breathtaking novelty in the most<br />

literal sense of the word this season: the<br />

quadruple Freefall slide "Ihu’s Breakaway Falls"<br />

from ProSlide.<br />

An interesting fact about this attraction is that each<br />

of the four slides appears to be the same at first<br />

glance, but of course they're not. The orange<br />

coloured is the longest slide at 128 metres. The<br />

green has the shortest freefall sequence, and the<br />

blue slide has the steepest drop. The lilac coloured<br />

pipe slide isn't a real Drop Slide, and is the only one<br />

without a freefall mechanism and is a completely<br />

normal slide.<br />

All four slides have a simultaneous start at 24 metres<br />

height and offer after the introductory 60° to 80°<br />

steep freefall, a final horizontal 360° helix before –<br />

only seconds after the start – the brave park guests<br />

land in the lively outlet.<br />

ZAMPERLA WINS COURT RULING<br />

Innovation for ride attractions<br />

is the essential point in business<br />

with theme parks and<br />

Volksfests, and a good idea can<br />

very quickly develop into a<br />

sales hit. This fact however<br />

also induces imitators to make<br />

plans almost as quickly, to offer<br />

cheaper prices due to lower development<br />

costs – and in contrast<br />

to the original manufacturer,<br />

most probably haven't had<br />

the need to invest in less successful<br />

developments earlier.<br />

Text & Photos: Jochen Peschel<br />

However not only direct economical reasons<br />

speak for taking action against copyist. When<br />

a non-original ride construction is involved in an<br />

accident, the resulting negative publicity is often<br />

directed at the original manufacturer out of ignorance<br />

– and the considerable damage to the<br />

original manufacturer's image is hard to remedy.<br />

The protection of own ideas can be undertaken in<br />

various ways, summarized under the term<br />

"intellectual property". The copyright protection,<br />

which automatically evolves by creating a work,<br />

applies particularly to the copying of catalogues<br />

and photos. Based on this fact the Shanghai China<br />

Union Fun Equipment Manufacture Co., Ltd was<br />

prohibited from distributing its catalogue at the EAS<br />

2008 in Munich, Germany.<br />

Other possibilities are patents and trademarks,<br />

each of which must be applied for at a competent<br />

government organization at a fee, and in most cases<br />

involves costly prosecution proceedings. Such<br />

protection however applies only in countries where<br />

the application was registered or granted. In addition<br />

there is also the hard to grasp Law against<br />

Unfair Competition, which with certain prerequisites<br />

also protects against imitations.<br />

Antonio Zamperla SpA und Zamperla Inc., have<br />

proceeded with legal action in two cases in the USA<br />

based on a patent and the Law against Unfair Competition,<br />

and won the cases in the District Court of<br />

Florida. Both decisions apply nationwide. The first<br />

verdict prohibited the distribution of certain<br />

brochures by the Peking Shibaolai Amusement<br />

Equipment Co., Ltd. Additionally the decision forbade<br />

the advertising, marketing, sale and delivery<br />

of Zamperla constructions that correspond to the<br />

Disk´O, Moto Coaster, Power Surge, Rockin' Tug or<br />

Jump Around, or are very similar.<br />

The second judgement was against the Zhongshan<br />

Golden Dragon Amusement Equipment Co., Ltd.,<br />

and also enjoins the distribution of certain<br />

brochures as well as the advertising, marketing,<br />

sale and delivery of attractions of type Disk´O, Sky<br />

Drop, Jump Around, Flying Carousel, Flying Tigers,<br />

Moto Coaster or Rockin' Tug, or similar ride constructions.<br />

The enforcement of intellectual property rights is a<br />

permanent battle. Achieved verdicts pertain essentially<br />

only to the said defendants; new proceedings<br />

must be initiated against each new<br />

imitator. However judgements have a deterrent<br />

effect on third parties, and should the rightful owners<br />

discontinue their efforts then all dams would<br />

break.<br />

And so we must agree with Antonio Zamperla's<br />

statement when he said "We will continue to protect<br />

our company and the public from rides that appear<br />

to be Zamperla equipment, but which have not<br />

been engineered and manufactured according to<br />

our standards". He may also enjoy the economic<br />

bonus.<br />

LEOLANDIA<br />

Really quite clever: the erection of next year's attraction<br />

will be an attraction itself! The new<br />

theme land announced for 2015, "Peppa Pig’s<br />

World" at Italy's Leolandia is already enticing<br />

many small onlookers even this year.<br />

There's quite a lot to experience on the "Mr. Bull's<br />

Worksite", for example "helping" to blow up<br />

pipelines at the press of a button. Whilst all figures<br />

of the popular kiddie series that first became real at<br />

England's Paulton's <strong>Park</strong> in 2012, are only two<br />

dimensional figures in Italy at the moment, but<br />

Peppa Pig can already be experienced and<br />

touched "live".<br />

LEGOLAND DEUTSCHLAND<br />

There's a novelty to experience<br />

once again this year at the<br />

south German Legoland Resort<br />

– the erection of the large<br />

"Königsburg".<br />

Text:<br />

Frank Lanfer<br />

Photos: Frank Lanfer, Legoland<br />

With the establishment of an extensive accommodation<br />

offer at Legoland Deutschland<br />

Resort it appears that the resort has its finger<br />

firmly on the current trend, as family short-holidays<br />

are more popular than ever!<br />

The first houses for "Legoland Feriendorf" were<br />

erected in 2008, and extended to 72 in number in<br />

2011. In addition to restaurants, evening programmes,<br />

a lake area with climbing garden and<br />

playgrounds and a mini-golf course, the "Ritterburg"<br />

was added in 2013 with 34 rooms. Marketing<br />

Director Stephan Prien: "The success of our<br />

'Ritterburg' is overwhelming. And so it was easy to<br />

recommend an unscheduled investment to the<br />

Merlin Entertainments Group."<br />

With this step the accommodation offers could be<br />

increased this year as well. With the opening of the<br />

large "Königsburg", the capacity has been extended<br />

to an impressive 68 attractively designed<br />

rooms with 284 beds. Additionally the "Königsburg"<br />

is the first real hotel at the Legoland<br />

Deutschland Resort, offering a large buffet<br />

restaurant and a bar, and with that is independent<br />

even in the colder months of the year from other<br />

central facilities on the 11 hectares sized holiday<br />

village.<br />

Despite the current capacity of almost 1,000 beds<br />

(including the camping area with 1,900 sites), the<br />

increase in overnight accommodation is already<br />

foreseeable: Stephan Prien confirmed that a<br />

further extension in the upcoming years is already<br />

planned. In 2013 the holiday village was able to<br />

greet 12% more guests than in the previous year.<br />

57% of guests come from abroad, boosted by<br />

both Italy and Eastern Europe with the average<br />

length of stay at 2.6 days. Prien added: "2013 was<br />

our best result until now. And it appears that we<br />

may well top that again this year."<br />

84


This year's novelties at Legoland Deutschland will<br />

also make a definite contribution: in addition to the<br />

new show "The Original Cuban Circus" and a new<br />

ocean dweller at "Legoland Atlantis by Sea Life",<br />

the snake-neck turtle, there are also the world's<br />

largest Lego-model and the new Lego-cinema<br />

film.<br />

The largest model ever built from Lego-bricks is a<br />

"Star Wars X-Wing Starfighter" with a total length<br />

of 12.8 metres, a span of 13 metres, and a height<br />

of 3.3 metres – that is 32 times the size of the<br />

special model available in toy shops (see small<br />

picture on left side). The model made of 5.3<br />

million custom Lego-bricks and weighing around<br />

20 tons can be seen at the "Lego Hero Factory"<br />

together with other Star Wars exhibits (the reason<br />

for dismantling half of the 10 Kuka "Robo-<br />

Coasters").<br />

Just how long the travelling exhibition loved by<br />

Star-Wars-fans will remain at the German<br />

Legoland is unknown at this stage; the previous<br />

year it stood in New York Times Square.<br />

The current success film worldwide, "The Lego<br />

Movie", can be seen at all Legolands. An agreement<br />

with Warner Bros., has secured the rights for<br />

the Lego-concern: each Legoland may show the<br />

film once a day.<br />

The computer animated comedy of Australian firm<br />

Animal Logic (Directors Phil Lord und Chris Miller),<br />

shows only buildings that can also be recreated<br />

with Lego-bricks. And the Lego-figures, principal<br />

actors in the film, don't move smoothly deliberately,<br />

so that everything looks like authentic<br />

Lego. The message of the film: don't build only<br />

according to directions, but build what you like.<br />

The world première of "Lego The Movie" took place<br />

on the 7 th February 2014, and received many good<br />

reviews.<br />

GARDALAND<br />

Accompanied by the announcement<br />

regarding a new 42 metres<br />

high Dive Coaster from B&M for<br />

2015, and with already some<br />

ground work in progress,<br />

Gardaland opened its gates on<br />

April 1st for another exciting<br />

season.<br />

Text:<br />

Whilst next year's novelty<br />

is already being built, Manager<br />

Aldo Maria Vigevani opens the<br />

new kiddie and water land<br />

As for the 2014 novelties, they already welcome<br />

guests immediately behind the park entrance.<br />

Located in the medieval section of the park and<br />

occupying the surface once occupied by “Ikarus”,<br />

a Huss Condor now operating at Miragica and by<br />

a medieval stunt show, “Prezzemolo Land” is a<br />

themed area entirely dedicated to summer entertainment<br />

of the youngest visitors.<br />

The idea of an attraction of this kind came from a<br />

guest who submitted it during the past season for<br />

the contest: "Il Gardaland che vorrei" (<strong>English</strong> translation:<br />

“The Gardaland I'd like”). The lucky winner<br />

and his family were among the main guests at the<br />

official opening.<br />

The central element is a small "castle" surrounded<br />

by five colourful waterslides and a set of powerful<br />

water cannons that can be used either to attack the<br />

castle from the outside or to defend it from the<br />

inside. The area is also filled with hidden fountains,<br />

barrels and other water tricks. A final measure to<br />

stop brave guests entering the castle is a giant<br />

bucket located right above the main gate which<br />

periodically releases quite a lot of water.<br />

The area can be enjoyed wearing swimsuits with<br />

changing rooms being provided. Also, to get dry in<br />

no time, there are two big yellow up-charge dryers<br />

available.<br />

On one side of the big castle there is a dry playground<br />

dedicated to the creations of Prezzemolo,<br />

the Inventor, who is clearly Gardaland's tribute to<br />

Leonardo Da Vinci. In fact the area contains flying<br />

machines, a planetarium and a large section<br />

dedicated to the art of painting featuring the<br />

masterpiece of Prezzemolo, which is no doubt a<br />

reminder of the Mona Lisa painting. Rounding off<br />

“Prezzemolo Land” there is a snack bar and<br />

another smaller area containing jumping mattresses<br />

for children.<br />

86


All in all, Prezzemolo Land is a nice and colourful<br />

addition to Gardaland and a more than welcomed<br />

refreshment for hot summer days.<br />

Due to the erection of the next large attraction for<br />

2015, the Intamin Freefall Tower “Space Vertigo” will<br />

not be available this season, and according to unconfirmed<br />

announcements the park is apparently<br />

to part company with the coaster "Sequoila Adventure"<br />

(the world's first "Screaming Squirrel" from UScompany<br />

S&S).<br />

POWERPARK<br />

Photos: Powerpark<br />

A completely new and unusual Funhouse went into<br />

operation at the Finnish Powerpark this year. The<br />

simple facade harbours the attraction "Working in<br />

Progress".<br />

It's an attraction where fun can be had by the whole<br />

family – which were the thoughts of the operating<br />

family Lillbacka. For this reason the 36 gags and<br />

tricks were attuned to this public, among them a<br />

small slide, the obligatory rolling barrels, moving<br />

floors and so on. However the theming as a building<br />

site is the special characteristic. There are a<br />

total of seven scenes that can be watched with<br />

builders. Manufacturer of all elements is the Italian<br />

firm Gosetto.<br />

KNUTHENBORG SAFARIPARK<br />

With a total area of over 500<br />

hectares, it's the largest safari<br />

park in northern Europe, and<br />

still remains in private ownership.<br />

It is visited by over<br />

220,000 guests annually but is<br />

now to receive its first ride construction.<br />

Text:<br />

Photos: abc rides<br />

Earlier visitors were enticed by an extensive area,<br />

its roots going back to 1867, when Count Eggert<br />

Christoffer Knuth had a landscaped garden installed<br />

based on <strong>English</strong> models. In 1950 a few animal<br />

enclosures were added, and in 1969 the first exotic<br />

animals arrived. These days a 15 kilometre long<br />

road network can be travelled by car, and – as a<br />

special characteristic in this segment – visitors may<br />

alight from cars in many places to watch the 1,000<br />

animals living there, at close range.<br />

A few restaurants, a large nature-playground, and<br />

a water playground round off the offers at Knuthenborg<br />

Safaripark on the Island of Lolland (1.5 hours<br />

by car from Copenhagen). However on the 10 th May<br />

2014 a water attraction from abc rides opened in<br />

the African theme area, which can even boast<br />

about being the steepest construction of its type in<br />

the whole of northern Europe!<br />

"Congo River" has a total length of 395 metres with<br />

the lift transporting the 6-seat boats to a height of<br />

16 metres. From there visitors have a view of the<br />

park that they couldn't have earlier, however this is<br />

followed by a 15 metres depth and 51° steep drop<br />

into the lake. The simultaneous operation of seven<br />

boats results in a capacity of 250 passengers per<br />

hour. The total ride time is around seven minutes,<br />

and all park guests who are a min. age of 6 years<br />

and have a height of 120 cm may partake. ■<br />
