KALEIDOSCOPE<br />

BEACH BALL<br />

Presented: The “Beach<br />

Ball” game booth, Damian<br />

Traber and Franziska Koch<br />

AWARD<br />

Text & Photo: Michael Petersen<br />

In a ceremonial act at<br />

the city hall on fairground<br />

Monday, showman<br />

Hans Göbel was<br />

honoured for his merits<br />

to the largest fair on the<br />

Rhine by the Düsseldorf<br />

Mayor Conzen.<br />

Text & Photos: Norman Vogt<br />

At the Maimess in Mannheim,<br />

Damian Traber and<br />

Franziska K och fr om<br />

Freiburg celebrated a<br />

successful première with<br />

their brand ne w electr o-<br />

nic “Beac h Ball” ball<br />

throwing attraction, b uilt<br />

by the Dietz firm.<br />

Due to its “beach” theme,<br />

with the front area featuring motifs of the popular<br />

beach sport, painted by Daniel Geibel, the<br />

spacious wagon makes a highly appealing impression.<br />

The lighting is a combination of LED<br />

and neon lighting, so that the single letters of the<br />

name sign can shine in different colours, and to<br />

the right and the left of the attraction there are<br />

two decorative palm trees. All in all, there are five<br />

differently coloured games tables, each of them<br />

with five holes that have to be scored by the<br />

balls. Once a ball falls into a hole, the number of<br />

points is shown on an electronic display in the<br />

upper section and there is a sound effect. If a<br />

ball hits the hole in the middle, the player has<br />

free choice. However, there is a rotating disc in<br />

front of each hole, so that there are only a couple<br />

of seconds to hole a ball.<br />

Before the new attraction was purchased,<br />

Damian Traber performed in his parents’ stunt<br />

show, and Franziska Koch worked in her father’s<br />

travelling gastro operation after she had<br />

successfully served her apprenticeship. This<br />

year, “Beach Ball” has already been, and will still<br />

be presented at, among other venues, Goslar,<br />

Geldern, Passau, Kapfham, and Erbach. ■<br />

HAPPY CARS<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Kai Morawetz<br />

In an entertaining<br />

speech, the Worms<br />

showman expressed his<br />

thanks for the long-term<br />

cooperation with the city<br />

authorities and the<br />

Schützen. He gave an<br />

outline of his career as a<br />

showman and gave<br />

special thanks to his<br />

wife Christine and his<br />

family.<br />

■<br />

The newly purchased “Happy Cars” kiddie ride<br />

from Petra Hadlok from Güterfelde went into operation<br />

in Potsdam.<br />

According to the of owner the attraction, mounted on a<br />

wagon was ordered at the GeRe-Games Ltd and built in<br />

Slovakia according to DIN EN 13814. For Petra Hadlok,<br />

the most important considerations for the purchase were<br />

the kiddie carousel’s compact dimensions and its low<br />

total weight of 2,500 kg, due to which it can be quickly<br />

relocated with a larger regular motor vehicle or a van.<br />

Further decisive features were the short build-up time of<br />

only 2 hours and the small diameter of 8 metres. The<br />

mounts in the shape of various vehicles and animals<br />

accommodate 20 passengers. Due to the LED-lighting,<br />

the carousel has electrical requirements of only 5 kW.<br />

Petra Hadlok tours “Happy Cars” throughout the east of<br />

Germany. The tour schedule included the Hanse Sail in<br />

Rostock and the Rudolstadt Vogelschießen. ■<br />

30 YEARS TELSTAR BLUM<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Norman Vogt<br />

For 30 years, Thomas Blum from Kaiserslautern<br />

has been touring the “Telstar” Twister.<br />

The ride was built in 1972 by the French Reverchon<br />

firm for Fritz Becker from Kaiserslautern and was<br />

also under the ownership of Hans Becker, before it<br />

came to Thomas Blum after some 12 years. Every<br />

winter break, the ride’s visual appearance and<br />

technology are overhauled. Last winter, for<br />

example, the 12 gondolas, the visors and the arms<br />

were newly painted. Moreover, the electronic components<br />

were replaced and the construction was<br />

partially rewired, and it will not be long before the<br />

centrepiece will also be newly painted. As a result,<br />

the immaculately maintained Twister, which is now<br />

42 years old, is always presented in excellent condition.<br />

The ride is built up, dismantled and<br />

relocated by Thomas Blum and operated by his<br />

daughter Nancy, who has been the manager for the<br />

“Telstar” for some time. The ride is a regular guest<br />

at events in the south west of Germany, first and<br />

foremost in Rhineland-Palatinate, the Saarland and<br />

Hessen.<br />

APPEAL TO OUR READERS<br />

With the outbreak of the Fir st W orld W ar in<br />

August one hundred y ears ago, the sho wman<br />

industry also f ound itself in a dramatic<br />

situation, as most of the Volksfest events were<br />

either cancelled or at least subject to considerable<br />

restrictions, as well as man y other<br />

reasons imposed by the conflict.<br />

Dr. Michael H. Faber, freelance editor of the<br />

Kirmes & <strong>Park</strong> Revue of many years standing, is<br />

currently investigating – for the first time in cultural<br />

science – the situation of the showmen and Volksfest<br />

events in the four war years. The Kirmes & <strong>Park</strong><br />

Revue will present the results of his efforts in an<br />

extensive article. As there are hardly any photos<br />

on this topic available in the archives, the Kirmes<br />

& <strong>Park</strong> Revue would like to call upon the readers<br />

for assistance. Urgently sought are privately<br />

owned photos of exhibitions and fairgrounds, as<br />

well as other documents concerning the showman<br />

industry during the war years 1914 to 1918.<br />

Photos and documents in jpg-format, with a minimum<br />

resolution of 300 dpi can be sent to the editor<br />

by email at ralf.schmitt@gemiverlag.de up until<br />

late October 2014. Submissions can also be sent<br />

to the editor by post. Original photos and documents<br />

will be returned immediately after processing.<br />

It goes without saying that the sources of the<br />

photos and documents will also be published. All<br />

the participants will receive a free copy of the<br />

relevant Kirmes & <strong>Park</strong> Revue issue.<br />

KALEIDOSCOPE<br />

DONKEY KONG<br />

Michael Schottenloher’s<br />

newly purchased attraction<br />

“Donkey Kong”<br />

CRAZY TRIP<br />

With regar d to the<br />

article about the revival<br />

of the “Crazy Trip” Walkthrough<br />

construction<br />

(Kirmes & P ark Re vue<br />

No. 204, page 60), showman<br />

Lutz Hofmann from<br />

Rudolstadt inf ormed<br />

us:<br />

“The Geisterhölle was<br />

built exclusively according<br />

to my own ideas and<br />

by the mentioned craft<br />

enterprises in 1988, and it<br />

was the first two-storey<br />

Walkthrough construction<br />

in the GDR.”<br />

■<br />

Text & Photo: Helmut Bresler<br />

At the Erlangen Bergkirchweih,<br />

Michael Schottenloher celebrated<br />

the première of his transportable<br />

c limbing gar den “Donke y<br />

Kong”, the onl y type of this<br />

attraction in the whole of<br />

Germany.<br />

On Family Day, he was hardly able<br />

to cope with the crowd in front of<br />

his attraction, due to the rush of<br />

visitors. The first owner, Dutch<br />

showman Klaas Verwijk from Amsterdam (see Kirmes<br />

& <strong>Park</strong> Revue, August 2012), sold the construction to<br />

the Belgian showman enterprise Michielsen-Boonen.<br />

When Michael Schottenloher saw the attraction on<br />

the Internet, he immediately contacted the owner.<br />

Initially, the deal did not seem to work out as they<br />

could not agree on the price. However, Michael<br />

Schottenloher could not put aside the idea of an<br />

experience course with a jungle decoration in the<br />

style of the highly popular climbing gardens.<br />

Eventually, a contract was entered into, and the construction<br />

– so far transported on a trailer – was<br />

changed in order to meet German statutory requirements<br />

and recommendations, and specifically the<br />

latest DIN standard 13814, as its owner informs us.<br />

Along the 50-metre course, over hill and down dale,<br />

visitors have to negotiate various obstacles such as<br />

the balance beam and the chicken ladder, as well as<br />

suspended and bouncing bridges. Every child is<br />

secured by a solid safety chain, which is fastened<br />

with the combined belt at the start and accompanies<br />

every visitor on a guide rail through the adventure<br />

course. As is to be expected in the jungle, various<br />

animals are lurking along the course, amongst them<br />

snakes, spiders, and crocodiles as life-size decoration<br />

elements. The “Donkey Kong” has a front of 11<br />

metres and is 9.5 metres deep with backflash. Its<br />

name refers to a video game figure highly popular<br />

with children. Further effects are currently being<br />

prepared. Michael and Janet Schottenloher also<br />

continue touring their historic fairy-tale carousel, as<br />

well as the “Tool Time” hi-striker.<br />

■<br />

DSCHUNGEL TRIP<br />

Andreas and Lena Schultze<br />

and their kiddie track ride<br />

“Dschungel Trip”<br />

Text & Photos: Kai Morawetz<br />

Andreas and Lena Schultze from Berlin purchased<br />

the “Dschungel Trip” kiddie track ride from Manuel<br />

Freiwald this spring.<br />

The kiddie ride with a 3.50-metre high and 14-metre long<br />

backflash spreading over the entire length of the ride was<br />

built by the SBF firm in Italy in 1994. Due to its compact<br />

dimensions the attraction requires only a small centre<br />

trailer with twin axles. As loading the additional large paybox<br />

is quite tedious, a new trailer – which is to be rebuilt<br />

for transporting the second paybox during the winter –<br />

has already been purchased. Before the Schultze family<br />

started touring the attraction (the first venue was the<br />

Baumblütenfest in Werder on Havel), it was partially overhauled.<br />

The capped bulbs were replaced by LED-lights,<br />

the running gear of the centre trailer was overhauled, and<br />

a new crossbeam was mounted for the draw bar. Moreover,<br />

large soft toys and a number of plants were<br />

purchased as additional decoration elements. During<br />

the winter break all vehicles are to be newly painted, and<br />

a short waterfall is to be built into the attraction. The<br />

kiddie track ride has a front length of 14 metres, is 7-<br />

metre deep, and has electrical requirements of 10 kW. ■<br />

7 years, the Volksfest will once<br />

again begin with the tapping of the<br />

keg. Ever since 2007, the tapping<br />

of the keg in the “Dinkelacker” tent<br />

by the Lord Mayor had been postponed<br />

to the evening hours, so<br />

that the Volksfest opening could<br />

be broadcast live by the SWR-TV,<br />

although the rides on the fairground<br />

had already been making<br />

their rounds since 3 p.m. and beer<br />

galore was already being served<br />

at all beverage outlets as well as in<br />

the Wasen tents. Indeed, in the last<br />

few years, the breweries and<br />

publicans had all laid claim to the<br />

first keg tapped, and celebrated<br />

their own pre-openings; this leading<br />

to confusion and getting quite<br />

out of hand. So now the Stuttgart<br />

Lord Mayor Fritz Kuhn will tap the<br />

very first keg on Friday, 26 th September<br />

punctually at 3 p.m., and in<br />

front of the other tents, heralds will<br />

sound their bells for the official<br />

beginning of beer consumption. At<br />

the same time, a fireworks display<br />

is to be held at the fruit column –<br />

as could be read in the announcement.<br />

One can only hope that the<br />

organisers have taken into account<br />

the fact that it will still be as<br />

bright as day at this time of the<br />

day!<br />

Shameful Scenes 2013<br />

The Cannstatt Volksfes<br />

in Stuttgart<br />

Stuttgart<br />

Once a gain, as man y as 4 million visitor s are<br />

expected to visit the largest Swabian fair, the<br />

Canstatt Volksfest in Stuttgart. The 169 th Volksfest<br />

on the Wasen-fairground – this year accompanied<br />

by the “Landwirtschaftlichen Hauptfest” agricultural<br />

fair according to an annual rotation – will<br />

be opened on Frida y, 26 th September and celebrated<br />

up until Sunday, 12 th October.<br />

There will be an important change to the opening<br />

ceremony on Friday. For the first time after a break of<br />

Hopefully, the early opening will<br />

also prevent last year’s shameful<br />

scenes when drunken visitors<br />

drowned Lord Mayor Fritz Kuhn’s<br />

speech by whistling, shouting<br />

loudly and sometimes insulting<br />

him in the worst possible manner,<br />

or at the very least prevent such<br />

scenes from being broadcast live<br />

to all the households in the SWR<br />

broadcasting area. This time, the<br />

regional SWR television station contented itself with a<br />

report in the Landesschau programme on the evening<br />

of the opening day. Andreas Kroll, chairman of the<br />

organising in.Stuttgart firm commented, “I wanted to<br />

have an opening, at the time the event is really<br />

opened”, and regarding the missing live television<br />

coverage he added, “There will be a two-hour SWR<br />

programme on the Volksfest a week later instead. All<br />

in all, this is a sensible solution.” On 22 nd August, the<br />

Stuttgarter Nachrichten published a long article on the<br />

The site map 2014<br />

(subject to change)<br />

“Volksfest opening” topic, and the newspaper also<br />

reviewed the SWR channel 3 live television coverages<br />

from 2007 to 2013 in a humorous and scathing<br />

commentary, “The regional television station broadcast<br />

a 90-minute live coverage from inside the beer<br />

tent – in a time slot well-known for generally succumbing<br />

to music. For this reason the SWR television<br />

station had announced that there would only be a live<br />

coverage if there were “seven folk music top acts”.<br />

The city authorities responded, “It is not only the hour<br />

of folk music but also the Volksfest opening,” and<br />

insisted on local acts, such as the “Zauberer Topas”<br />

and the “Wirtschaftswunder” live band. In the following<br />

years, mood music retaliated, with the SWR proving<br />

true the ironic 'industry wisdom' “Three eyes see<br />

better than two.” After all, once the SWR audience was<br />

younger than the leading actors. Thus the audience<br />

learnt that Heino was still alive, Tony Marshall was still<br />

able to thrust his hands up melodramatically to the<br />

sky, and the "Wildecker Herzbuben" duo had not yet<br />

burst onto the scene. So much for the Stuttgarter<br />

Nachrichten! One last thing on the topic of “SWR and<br />

Cannstatt Volksfest”; recently an original sticker from<br />

1977 has been found in the Kirmes & <strong>Park</strong> Revue<br />

archive showing the “Äffle und Pferdle” (little monkey<br />

and little horse) – the popular cartoon figures from the<br />

Süddeutsche Rundfunk (now Südwestrundfunk, or<br />

SWR) – advertising the “Canstatt Volksfest mit Landwirtschaftlichem<br />

Hauptfest 1977”. And we already<br />

have the keynote to the next festival theme: As is the<br />

case every four years, the Canstatt Volksfest on the<br />

Wasen fairground will be accompanied by the “Landwirtschaftliche<br />

Hauptfest” once again this year from<br />

27 th September to 5 th October, resulting in less space<br />

for the showmen. At the LHW, “the largest farm in<br />

Baden-Württemberg”, more than 600 exhibitors and<br />

organisations inform visitors about the latest news<br />

from agriculture, forestry, and dietetics.<br />

Among the showman attractions presented at the<br />

169 th Canstatt Volksfest, three constructions are<br />

Local patriotism –<br />

T-shirts and at the long<br />

Volksfest procession<br />

particularly heralded, namely the “Mega King Tower”<br />

(Zinnecker) as the “tallest transportable Freefall<br />

Tower”, the double-looping coaster “Teststrecke”<br />

(Steiger Achterbahn firm), and the<br />

“Skyliner” (Skyliner GmbH) as the<br />

“tallest transportable observation<br />

platform”. Among these three attractions,<br />

only the Freefall Tower will be<br />

presented at the Volksfest for the first<br />

time – the construction has already<br />

appeared at this year’s spring<br />

festival in the Swabian metropolis,<br />

however.<br />

Due to the agricultural exhibition<br />

being held this year, there will be less<br />

space available for the showmen. As<br />

a result, a water ride will be missing<br />

this time, and the “fun sector” will also<br />

make a very modest impression. No<br />

longer presented among the major<br />

constructions in comparison to last<br />

year will be, The “Berg & Tal” coaster,<br />

“Spinning Racer”, “Psycho”,<br />

“Freddy´s Company”, “Kristallpalast”,<br />

Ferris Wheel, and – as previously mentioned – the<br />

beginning at 9 p.m. The price for a litre of beer in the beer tents will<br />

be between €8.90 and €9.40 this year – an increase of up to 30 cents. It<br />

remains to be seen if there will be too few taxis for the Wasen visitors or<br />

those going home once again this year. This was a big problem last year,<br />

and the city authorities and the taxi office have already announced that<br />

they will closely watch the situation. The organisers are expecting between<br />

3.5 and 4 million visitors at the Volksfest, a figure comparable to<br />

the 3.7 million people coming to the Cannstatt Volksfest last year. ■<br />

As usual, the complete list of all the ride and funhouse attractions presented<br />

at the 169 th Cannstatt Wasen will be available in the preview in the<br />

rear section of the Kirmes & <strong>Park</strong> Revue issue.<br />

Traditional Morning, Parade, Family Day and More<br />

The most important events of the supporting programme: The “Traditionsmorgen”<br />

(traditional morning) on the first Saturday (27 th September) will<br />

be held together with the opening of the Landwirtschaftliches Hauptfest<br />

this time. On the first Sunday (28 th September, from 11 a.m.) the long Volksfest<br />

parade with about 3,500 participants proceeding from the Kursaal<br />

through the historic alleys of Bad Cannstatt to the Wasen-fairground will<br />

attract up to 250,000 visitors. The parade is organised by the Cannstatt<br />

Volksfestverein, which was founded in 1994 to preserve the Cannstatt<br />

Volksfest tradition and has about 560 members. Another highlight will be<br />

He will be sadly missed<br />

at the 169 th Cannstatt<br />

Volksfest: the<br />

chairman of the<br />

Showman Association<br />

Süd west, and<br />

Stuttgart Chairman of<br />

many years standing,<br />

Joachim (Jogi) Hohl.<br />

On 8 th April this year,<br />

the Stuttgart showman<br />

veteran lost his fight<br />

against a serious illness,<br />

and passed away at the age of only 58 years in his home<br />

town. His last trip was in an ambulance from the university<br />

hospital in Heidelberg to a hospital in Stuttgart, and his closest<br />

friends (Martin Blume and “Wasendoktor” Rolf Kübler to name<br />

but two) as well as his family made the impossible possible –<br />

making Joachim Hohl’s last wish come true; namely, to see “his”<br />

Wasen once again, where the spring festival was being built up<br />

at that time. And when the ambulance eventually reached his<br />

beloved and familiar fairground - Joachim Hohl was deeply<br />

moved and filled with happiness once again. A few days later,<br />

he succumbed to his illness and passed away. An enormous<br />

crowd of people bade farewell to Joachim Hohl – who leaves<br />

his wife Eveline, his daughter Carolin, his son-in-law David and<br />

his grandson Pauli – at the funeral service in Stuttgart on 14 th<br />

April. At the funeral service, the Stuttgart Volksfest organiser,<br />

Marcus Christen, said, “He leaves a large void on the Wasen,<br />

as he had fought, above all, for the most vulnerable among the<br />

side stall operators”, and Karl Maier (“Göckelesmaier”), Hohl’s<br />

deputy at the Showman Association Südwest added, “Jogi’s<br />

commitment was overwhelming. He knew everyone and everything,<br />

and was respected by the showmen and officials<br />

throughout Germany.”<br />

HISTORY<br />

CANNSTATT VOLKSFEST 55 YEARS AGO<br />

Text: Ralf Schmitt<br />

Photos: Official programme magazine of<br />

the city of Stuttgart,1959<br />

Of course, the<br />

landmark of the festival was the<br />

cover picture of the 1959 official<br />

programme of the city of<br />

Stuttgart: the Fruchtsäule.<br />

The published site map gave a<br />

rather vague idea about which<br />

attractions were presented on<br />

the Wasen-fairground<br />

It goes without saying that in 1959, issue No. 20 of the<br />

official programme of the state capital Stuttgart,<br />

which was also dubbed as the “newsletter for the<br />

members of the Stuttgart tourist office”, was completely<br />

given over to the Cannstatt Volksfest. It was the 114 th<br />

Volksfest, which began on 26 th (Saturday) and not – as<br />

printed on the cover picture by mistake – on 27 th<br />

September, and closed on Wednesday, 7 th October.<br />

The greeting read in part, “The spacious Cannstatt<br />

Wasen will once again be the meeting point for those<br />

who treasure spending a couple of hours among<br />

happy people. May all our worries disappear like<br />

autumn fog in the sun at the – hopefully – gloriously<br />

sunny 114 th Cannstatt Volksfest. No matter how cosy<br />

the atmosphere in the magnificent beer tents may be,<br />

at some point in time everybody will want to have a look<br />

at the new attractions that can be encountered at the<br />

fair this year. An umbrella would only be a hindrance<br />

when doing so.”<br />

While the editorial text was lacking any further details,<br />

and the site map (lovingly drawn, it must be said) also<br />

provided only at best a rough overview of the type and<br />

number of attractions – identifying, for example,<br />

merely 3 roller coasters and 2 Ferris wheels – the<br />

advertisements for a number of showmen's operations<br />

actually provided much more information about the<br />

rides and tracks offered at the 114 th Volksfest.<br />

18


The owner of the “Calypso” (without the name<br />

being given) for example advertised: “The big<br />

hit; the Calypso novelty; appearing in Stuttgart<br />

for the first time”! The effusive showman went<br />

on to promise “only smiling faces due to the<br />

beautiful and pleasant ride provided!” Hugo<br />

Haase from Hannover heralded “the vast roller<br />

coaster offering speedy rides” as well as the<br />

“Zeppelin-Wolkenflug”, George Malfertheiner<br />

preferred “the unique jungle and tropical show”,<br />

and Rudolf Feldl presented the “Original<br />

Münchner Teufelsrad”.<br />

The Löffelhardt firm announced two attractions,<br />

“Löffelhardt brings America’s ride hit No. 1 Hula-<br />

Hoop – a wonderful new ride for the Volksfest!<br />

Moreover, the Mars-Express proclaimed multilevel<br />

horror; laughter in the dark”, and the “Roxi-<br />

Betriebe” (R. and J. Kinzler) advertised the<br />

“Cortina-Bob”, “Etagen-8-Schleife” and “Die<br />

Tombola”. Also mentioned were the large and<br />

small beer tents, their publicans presenting at<br />

the Volksfest 1959 the Dinkelacker Beer Tent<br />

(Paul Greiner), the Stuttgarter Hofbräu Beer Tent<br />

(Göckelesmaier), the Schwabenbräu Beer Tent<br />

(Willi Grob), the Wulle Beer Tent (Willi Schropp), the<br />

Plochinger Waldhornbrauerei Beer Tent (Erich<br />

Geissler), and the Walter Weitmann's Max Weigel<br />

brass band, that lured the visitors to the “Stimmungsvollen<br />

Alpenglühen” spectacle in the Schwanenbräu<br />

Nagold Beer Tent. The most important events of the<br />

not yet very substantial supporting programme at the<br />

114 th Cannstatt Volksfest: The opening ceremony at the<br />

fruit column with a speech given by Lord Mayor Dr.<br />

Arnulf Klett accompanied by music performances of<br />

“Im schönen Schwabenland”, “Drobe uff d’r rauhe Alb”<br />

and “Uff de schwäb’sche Eisebahne”. Moreover, a<br />

procession was held on the first Volksfest Sunday, and<br />

a fireworks display on the first Wednesday as well as<br />

the second Tuesday of the Volksfest. In addition, there<br />

were tips on what was on offer in Stuttgart by way of<br />

nigh time entertainment, such as the “Maxim” Cabaret-<br />

Dance-Bar presenting a “Pariser Wäscheschau”, or<br />

Paris Lingerie Show, with the 15 Maxim catwalk<br />

models and “Daily Dance from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.” ■<br />

Bremen<br />

The 979 th Bremen Freimarkt will be celebrated<br />

from 17 th October to 2 nd November on the Bürgerweide-fairground<br />

this y ear. In ad dition, the<br />

nostalgic “small” Freimarkt will entice the public<br />

to the market in the city centre.<br />

Even though the Osterwiese in spring alleviates the<br />

wait until the Freimarkt, the Bremen residents and<br />

visitors from near and far nonetheless eagerly<br />

anticipate the autumn Volksfest. Fairground director<br />

for the second time since the end of the Freimarkt<br />

2012, Raimund Klug, and the most important<br />

contact person for both the media and showmen<br />

regarding the Freimarkt, the Osterwiese and the<br />

Christmas market ever since, has been in charge of<br />

the selection and placement of the attractions. Of<br />

course, he also has to take some criticism, such as<br />

the complaints from showmen and their spokesmen<br />

about the late issuing of approvals and rejections<br />

prior to this year’s Freimarkt. Apparently, the showmen<br />

received them only in late August, so the showmen<br />

had no way of reliably planning their tour<br />

schedules. Even Wolfgang Ahrens, the new<br />

manager of the Bremen Showman Association and<br />

former Bremen fairground director, considers this to<br />

be far too late, and would also like the showman<br />

associations to have a stronger say in the placement<br />

of approved attractions. Taking a first look at the site<br />

map of the 979 th Freimarkt one will find hardly any<br />

novelties among the ride and funhouse attractions,<br />

and a second, closer look reveals that a number of<br />

familiar attractions will be missing. Let’s start with the<br />

novelties that are to welcome the guests, which will<br />

include the “City Skyliner” viewing tower – the first<br />

large attraction built up directly at the main<br />

entrance to the Bürgerweide-fairground (on last<br />

year’s “Transformer” site). By the way, in the late<br />

1990s – as some of our readers may still recall – the<br />

slightly taller viewing tower “Top of the World” from<br />

the Finnendahl firm was built up almost on this very<br />

site.<br />

New: “City Skyliner” and “Down Town”<br />

Another novelty among the funhouse constructions<br />

on the Bürgerweide-fairground will be the “Down<br />

Town” labyrinth from Lutz Hofmann, which has been<br />

allocated one of the Walkthrough construction topend<br />

sites in the final third of the course circuit.<br />

Further along the course visitors will encounter yet<br />

another novelty; the “Atlantis Rafting” water ride<br />

from Jens Vorlop making its Freimarkt debut on last<br />

year’s site for the “Bayern Rutsch’n”, and the very<br />

site held in the past by the “Wild ‘n Wet” from<br />

Löwenthal, which went into operation in 2005 and<br />

has no longer been on tour since 2011, but rather<br />

Last year’s Bremen<br />

Freimarkt from the Ferris Wheel<br />

perspective. Back then nobody<br />

knew that it would be the last<br />

appearance of the “Frisbee” in<br />

its home town<br />

SPECIAL<br />

The site map of the 979 th<br />

Bremen Freimarkt<br />

(subject to change)<br />

has found a new home in the Allgäu-Skyline <strong>Park</strong> in<br />

Bad Wörishofen. The other novelties at the Freimarkt<br />

2014 may be considered to be “type of attraction<br />

known, but version/owner presented for the first<br />

time”, such as the “Looping the Loop” (Marquis instead<br />

of Olnhausen), “Psycho” (Bergmann), “Musik<br />

Express” (Baier, instead of Krause last year and<br />

“Troika” the years before), as well as the Mondial<br />

turbine “Gladiator” (Kriek) instead of “Flasher”<br />

(Ahrend).<br />

Returning to the Freimarkt after shorter or longer<br />

breaks will be the “Tower Event Center” (Blume),<br />

<strong>Park</strong>our (Aigner), “Daemonium” (Blume), “Commander”<br />

(Hanstein), “Alex Airport” (Goetzke),<br />

“Toboggan” (Fischer), “Flash” (Weber), “Black<br />

Hole” (Schierenbeck), “Alpina-Bahn” (Bruch) and<br />

the “Hexentanz” (Markmann). They will be joined by<br />

attractions also presented last year; namely, “Breakdance”<br />

(Dreher), “Happy Traveller” (Gack & Co.),<br />

“Happy Sailor” (Howey), “Wellenflug” (Hanstein),<br />

“Top Spin” (Ludewigt), “Euro-Rutsche” (Kuschenbauer-Roden),<br />

“Rotor” (Pluschies), Riesenrad<br />

(Steiger), and – despite rumours to the contrary –<br />

the large water ride from Löwenthal. The “Frisbee”,<br />

a cult ride of many years, will no longer be presented.<br />

After its appearance at the Hamburg Sommer-<br />

Dom, it was sold to Dubai and therefore cannot<br />

celebrate its 20 th birthday in Bremen. In other words,<br />

the Bürgerweide-fairground will provide many changes<br />

and a comeback for many familiar attractions –<br />

but the bottom line is that, apart from the viewing<br />

tower and the labyrinth, there will not be anything<br />

extraordinary or truly new. True, there have not<br />

actually been too many genuine novelties this<br />

season, but why will none of the new tall Freefall<br />

Towers be presented on the Bürgerweidefairground?<br />

Moreover, wouldn’t it have been<br />

possible to present the large show attraction (from<br />

a showman not exactly unknown in Bremen) that has<br />

only just celebrated its world première at the Munich<br />

Oktoberfest as a still “brand new” novelty also to the<br />

public at the Freimarkt – thereby honouring the<br />

showman’s willingness to invest?<br />

Noticeable also is that a ride from “Polyp” type –<br />

truly a “must” at the Freimarkt due to its great<br />

popularity – will be missing. Even more noticeable<br />

is the fact that after very many years, the attraction<br />

contingent in Bremen will not include a “Wilde Maus”<br />

type coaster – also enjoying outstanding popularity<br />

with the public – either. Neither the “Wilde Maus<br />

XXL” from the Eberhard firm, a prominent novelty<br />

very well received and frequented in Bremen last<br />

year, nor the standard-size “Wilde Maus” from the<br />

Kinzler firm, a regular participant of many years, will<br />

be presented.<br />

With the “Höllenblitz” yet another large track ride,<br />

also ranking among the regular participants at the<br />

Freimarkt up until recently, will be missing for the<br />

second successive time. Not even small coasters,<br />

often called kiddie or family coasters – highly<br />

The Freimarkt hit 2013, the<br />

“Wilde Maus XXL”, will not be<br />

presented this year – and no<br />

other standard Wilde Maus either!<br />

popular at many events and available in multiple<br />

versions – are not very popular with the organisers<br />

in Bremen. As far as the placing of the large<br />

attractions at this year’s Freimarkt is concerned, the<br />

only issues presenting a possible problem are the<br />

two major rides, the “City Skyliner” and the “Tower<br />

Event Centre” being built up rather close to each<br />

other, and the viewing tower with rotating gondola<br />

at the main entrance being directly followed by the<br />

viewing tower with Walkthrough construction set up<br />

as second-largest attraction in the circuit course.<br />

The fairground map shows where to find the<br />

attractions; for example, the fact that “Cafe Grell”<br />

which has moved to a different site after quite a long<br />

time, while the gastronomic operation “Schau’s Grill”<br />

(Uhse) with seating possibilities is built up on its<br />

traditional site. The Freimarkt used to be one of the<br />

first large German Volksfest events to be presented<br />

on the internet. As far as graphics, contents and updates<br />

are concerned, the now ageing Freimarkt<br />

website urgently requires “renovation”.<br />

The site map of the<br />

Bremen Freimarkt 1994 and<br />

several Freimarkt novelties<br />

from that year: “Krinoline”,<br />

“Old Flying Machine”, “Wilde<br />

Maus” as double-Mouse,<br />

“Grüne Hölle” and the<br />

“Speedy” built by Huss<br />

The list of attractions at the Freimarkt 1994 gave<br />

the following information: Ferris Wheel (Steiger),<br />

4-loop“Thriller” (Bruch), Wilde Maus (Kinzler,<br />

double-Mouse from Maurer), Alpen Express<br />

(Nülken), Magic Mountain (Renoldi), Wildwasser 3<br />

(Löwenthal), Evolution (Eberhard), Frisbee<br />

(Robrahn), Old Flying Machine (Schäfer), Top Spin<br />

(Ludewigt), Alte Liebe (Schneider), Take Off (Rüth &<br />

Krinoline (Roie), Breakdance (Dreher), Happy<br />

Traveller (Gack & Co.), Tornado (Fehrensen), Magic<br />

(Robrahn), Krake (Uhse), Wellenflug (Hanstein),<br />

Happy Sailor (Howey), Super Musik Express<br />

(Ahrend), Grüne Hölle (Blume), Rotor (Pluschies),<br />

Super Mario World (Markmann), Magischer Tempel<br />

(Kinzler), Das Omen (Hempen), and the dodgem<br />

tracks from Robrahn, Robrahn/Van der Veen, and<br />

Vespermann-Hartkopf. Peculiarities, curiosities, and<br />

strange stories from the Freimarkt 1994: Due to a<br />

technical fault, the “Can Can” from the Schneider<br />

firm – presented in Bremen in the “tuned-up” version<br />

for the first time – had to be dismantled during the<br />

event. The “Speedy” from Ludewigt was built up on<br />

its site on short notice. Even though the largest transportable<br />

water ride from Joachim Löwenthal had<br />

already had gone into operation two years before –<br />

it made its debut at the local Freimarkt only in 1994,<br />

when a second base for the huge construction was<br />

available, due to which the attraction could be<br />

relocated from Stuttgart to Bremen in good time.<br />

Records also show the fares for a number of rides.<br />

The price at the “Can Can” and the “Old Flying<br />

Machine” was DM 5,00 per person, DM 3,50 (adults)<br />

and DM 2,50 (children) at the “Krinoline”. For the<br />

world novelty “Frisbee”, the price was DM 6,00<br />

(adults) and DM 4,00 (children). The relatively new<br />

Freimarkt fair passes provided 8 rides for adults for<br />

DM 26,00 or 12 rides for children for DM 20,.00.<br />

Twenty years later, as many as 8 larger ride<br />

attractions, already presented in 1994, can still be<br />

encountered at the Freimarkt, namely the Top Spin,<br />

Happy Traveller, Breakdance, Commander, Ferris<br />

Wheel, Wellenflug, Rotor, and the large water ride. ■<br />

SPECIAL<br />

On Monday, October 13 th , Hersfeld<br />

residents, or “Herschfeller”,<br />

as rendered in the local dialect,<br />

will once again celebrate their 8-<br />

day Lullusf est, the oldest<br />

Heimatfest in Germany. The<br />

nationally reno wned fair is a<br />

showcase event for the city, just<br />

as a f ootball team fr om the<br />

German premier lea gue w ould<br />

be for other locations.<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Helmut Bresler<br />

Accompanied by the impressive battle<br />

cry “Enner, zwoon, dräi – Bruder Lolls“, or<br />

“One, two, three – Brother Lolls”, the<br />

Lullus bonfire will be lit precisely on the<br />

stroke of 12 on “Lolls-Monday”. The ceremonial<br />

lighting of a woodpile on the<br />

market square dates back to a medieval<br />

custom. The “Fierche” was the symbol of<br />

the “Lullusfreiheit”, or the exemption from<br />

municipal duties and taxes during the<br />

festival. Moreover, the Lullus bonfire is<br />

also of practical use. In low temperatures,<br />

a stroll across the fairground is more than<br />

conducive to a good warming up.<br />

According to an ancient custom, the<br />

children throw chestnuts into the fire and<br />

enjoy their bursting in the embers. The<br />

fairground will be built up on the market<br />

square, and every square centimetre will<br />

be put to use. Each year, the organisers<br />

under the management of Wilfried Roßbach<br />

take up the huge challenge of<br />

organising “the best Lollsfest ever”,<br />

where visitors will encounter the most<br />

Bad Hersfeld<br />

spectacular novelties from the showman<br />

industry chosen from 400 applicants.<br />

In addition to speedy hightech<br />

constructions, the event<br />

concept also focuses on familyfriendly<br />

attractions, offering an all inclusive experience<br />

appealing to every generation – from grandchildren to<br />

grandparents. According to a rotation scheme, the<br />

“Bellevue” Ferris Wheel from Bruch is the main<br />

attraction at the Lollsfest every second year. The<br />

Ferris Wheel, which was already approved for its first<br />

appearance at the event during manufacture, and has<br />

been on tour for 20 years now, will be presented at the<br />

event for the 11 th time this year.<br />

Ample Cornucopia of Attractions on<br />

Limited Space<br />

Several Lolls novelties 2014 come from the show and<br />

fun sector. Making its debut will be the “Traumgenerator”<br />

from Häsler & Lemoine, with crazy film and<br />

picture sequences on its exterior getting the visitors<br />

attuned to the not in the least usual journey inside the<br />

“machine”. Another Lolls première will be celebrated<br />

by the “Big Bamboo” (Hempen) built by the Dietz from<br />

the neighbouring city of Schwalmstadt in 2011,<br />

bringing back memories of summer, sun and the<br />

beach in autumn. Also presented once again will be<br />

the “Mäuse-Spektakel” from Henschel/Landwermann,<br />

SPECIAL<br />

First-time appearance:<br />

Hempen’s “Big Bamboo”<br />

The focus of interest:<br />

the Lullus bonfire<br />

as well as the already well-known “Flip Fly” over-thetop<br />

swing from Thomas Clauß, and the “Phoenix”<br />

looping ride from Gusowski. The big Lolls novelty<br />

among the rides will be the “Kick Down” from Maik<br />

Landwermann, contracted once again after a long<br />

absence, as will be the “Nessy”, Europe’s largest<br />

touring swing (Markmann), as well as the “Petersburger<br />

Schlittenfahrt” from Burgdorf, and younger<br />

Lullusfest visitors will be able to enjoy the “Montgolfière”<br />

from Zarnikau. Moreover, the “Traumland-<br />

Reise” from Barth, the “Fantasia” from Bodem, the<br />

“Traumwelt” from Berger, and the “Piratentrip” under<br />

the management of Hardt will also lure the public. The<br />

nostalgic sector will be represented by the Ernst firm<br />

with the well-looked-after Gallopers providing a<br />

romantic atmosphere at the fairground. A proper fairground<br />

includes not only attractive rides and funhouses,<br />

but also good gastronomic operations and<br />

snack booths. The ample selection in Bad Hersfeld<br />

offers something for everybody’s taste, be it sweet or<br />

spicy, and covers the gamut from vegetarian<br />

specialities, shish kebab, bratwurst, salmon flambé<br />

and Langos, to sweet chestnuts, almonds and<br />

delicious fish rolls, brezn and crêpes. Cosy beer tents<br />

will round off the product choice.<br />

Ample Supporting Programme<br />

All in all, 51 showmen have received one of the<br />

coveted contracts for the traditional city festival. With<br />

19 enterprises making their debut and 53 percent of<br />

the approved showmen having been replaced vis-à-vis<br />

last year, the fairground will once again provide a completely<br />

new overall image. The highlights at the city<br />

festival will be the Lollsball in the civic centre (11 th<br />

October), the church service at Distel’s dodgem track<br />

(12 th Oct.), the lighting of the Lullus bonfire and the<br />

procession on Lolls Monday (13 th Oct.) dedicated to the<br />

motto “Lolls – jeder feiert mit.” (Lolls – everybody celebrates<br />

together) Further highlights will be the Lullus<br />

bric-a-brac market with 130 sales stalls on Wednesday<br />

(15 th Oct.) and the open shopping Lolls-Sunday (19 th<br />

Oct.), when the local retailers with their full product<br />

range will also open from midday to 6 p.m. On Lolls<br />

Sunday at 8 p.m. a fireworks display accompanied by<br />

music will once again be held on the tower of the nearby<br />

Stadtkirche church by the pyrotechnic specialist<br />

Woesch from Würzburg. The final day (20 th Oct.) will<br />

once again be a family day with reduced prices. Last<br />

year, the burning of the Lolls devil, symbolising the<br />

burning of all the previous year’s sins, was revived. The<br />

Lolls devil, having already been presented at the procession<br />

on Lolls Monday, will once again make an<br />

appearance in a repeat event at the Feuergrube on 15 th<br />

October at 11:30 p.m. due to the good attendance.<br />

The Origin<br />

The Lullusfest is held in honour of the city’s founder, the<br />

Mainz Archbishop Lull (710 to 786), a pupil of holy<br />

Bonifatius, known as the Germans’ apostle, who<br />

founded the future imperial abbey Hersfeld in 769. The<br />

church festival was created to mark the canonisation of<br />

Archbishop Lull in 852 attended by pilgrims travelling to<br />

the shrine in the newly built abbey. The pilgrimages<br />

resulted in an important market with merchants, jugglers<br />

and cheerfully celebrating participants. While the pilgrimages<br />

became less important, the Lullusfest<br />

developed into a Volksfest event. Nowadays, the Lullusfest<br />

is deeply embedded in the hearts of people throughout<br />

the entire region. In October the “Lolls”, as the locals<br />

call their market, will take place, and a visit to the event<br />

is simply a must: No excuses accepted; the entire region<br />

has a soft spot for the Hersfeld event! The festival opening<br />

has a special, noteworthy feature: it is the only Volksfest<br />

event in Germany that begins on a Monday. With the<br />

Lollsfest a new calendar, the “Lolls Year”, begins for the<br />

“Herschfeller”, who divide the year into “before the Lolls”<br />

and “after Lolls”. The Lollsfest differs from other Volksfest<br />

events due in particular to its tradition, the affinity between<br />

the residents and their event, and the showman<br />

attractions.<br />

INERVIEW: “MR. LOLLS” WILFRIED ROßBACH<br />

Wilfried Roßbac h is called “Mr .<br />

Lolls” in Bad Hersfeld. He is the<br />

indispensable organiser, now<br />

working together in a team with<br />

Julia Sc holz and Helg e Assi.<br />

Since 1980, he has been<br />

responsible for the event, and<br />

thus he celebrates a rare anniversary;<br />

he is no w the fairground<br />

director for the 35 th time.<br />

Mr. Roßbach, which operations were presented<br />

in your first year, 1980?<br />

The Lullusfest was smaller in those days. There<br />

were 36 operations – as opposed to 51 operators<br />

these days. I recall very well the Filmrakete from Kalbfleisch<br />

– a season novelty back then - the Ferris Wheel<br />

from Willenborg, the Animal Show from Sindermann<br />

and the Twister from Nier.<br />

How ha ve re venues fr om fair ground f ees<br />

developed ever since?<br />

Naturally, they have increased over the years.<br />

From Euro 25,000 in 1980 to some Euro 160,000 today.<br />

The Lullusfest 1989 was held shortly before the<br />

German reunification and the opening of the<br />

border between W est and East German y. What<br />

happened in 1990?<br />

We were hardly able to cope with the new mass<br />

of visitors. All of a sudden, Bad Hersfeld was no longer<br />

located in the border zone area – but in the middle of<br />

Germany! Visitors came from, among other towns,<br />

Erfurt, Gotha and Eisenach, and of course we extended<br />

our advertising campaign. It was a big boost to the<br />

Lullusfest, no question about it.<br />

Bad Hersfeld has about 30,000 residents. How<br />

many visitors do you record at the Lullusfest?<br />

attraction and we are proud of it. At the same time, it<br />

is an incentive and obligation to keep the Lullusfest<br />

attractive and alive into the future.<br />

How many applications do you receive?<br />

Currently there have been 432 applicants. There<br />

were years with some 800 inquiries - of every conceivable<br />

quality, it must be said. The introduction of an<br />

application fee some years ago separated the wheat<br />

from the chaff.<br />

Which festivals do you go and see?<br />

This changes annually. A “must” for me is the Allerheiligenkirmes<br />

in Soest every year. Schweinfurt and<br />

Würzburg are also on my tour list. On average, there<br />

are about ten events that I get my inspiration from.<br />

Many times that number; all in all we have about<br />

half a million visitors. This proves the event's power of<br />

Who writes the speec h given b y the ma yor<br />

shortly before the lighting of the Lolls bonfire?<br />

Mayor Thomas Fehling himself. Of course, he is<br />

provided with the current facts. The speech must be<br />

finished precisely at the stroke of 12. Then the<br />

dialogue with the “fire-master” begins. Finally, the<br />

mayor takes over the torch from him and throws it into<br />

the prepared woodpile.<br />

How impor tant is the dialogue between the<br />

“fire-master” and the mayor?<br />

for the dozens of participants. This means that of<br />

course there are discussions about the attractions as<br />

well as participants. More precisely, there were 88<br />

showmen on the short-list for the 51 contracts available<br />

this year. The decisions are made by this<br />

committee.<br />

In February, eight months bef ore the Lullusfest,<br />

you introduce the novelties to the public. Why<br />

that early?<br />

It is a traditional custom, handed down from<br />

earlier times, and is simply indispensable. Now everybody<br />

knows – the Lullusfest is about to begin. Then the<br />

music starts playing and the rides open up.<br />

This y ear, it is the turn of the Ferris Wheel<br />

again, a classic ride at the Lullusfest?<br />

Yes, without a doubt. The Bellevue Wheel from the<br />

Bruch firm is popular with all age groups. At the same<br />

time, the arrival of the 20 containers and the build-up<br />

with a 160-ton crane is always a logistical feat – but the<br />

response is impressive.<br />

The nostalgic trend is s weeping the fairgrounds.<br />

Is this also a topic in Bad Hersfeld?<br />

No, it is not a new topic for us. We always present<br />

one nostalgic attraction, for example “Hex‘n Wippn”<br />

from Michael Zehle last year, or currently the Gallopers<br />

from Dieter Ernst. I would like to have a big organ.<br />

How are decisions made in the Lullusf est<br />

commission? Do y ou still discuss the issue of<br />

participants?<br />

There is a session paper with the layout concept<br />

Because people are curious and “their appetite<br />

is to be whetted” - and of course, to afford the showmen<br />

planning reliability. Further decisive factors at this<br />

point in time are the events taking place at the same<br />

time – such as the Lukasmarkt in Mayen or the fair in<br />

Bocholt.<br />

What is dear to your heart this year?<br />

Among other things, the campaign against<br />

broken glass. We want to tackle this problem head-on,<br />

intensify searches and appeal to the visitors’ common<br />

sense. The last resort would be a ban on glass on the<br />

entire fairground.<br />

How can you explain the success of the Lullusfest?<br />

In addition to an appealing fairground with an<br />

interesting offering for all ages and visitor groups, I<br />

think the citizens’ affinity with their event is particularly<br />

important. This is what my work depends on. I am<br />

proud that we succeeded in embedding the Lullusfest<br />

deep in the hearts of the people, and that the event<br />

enjoys unflagging popularity every year. We bring<br />

people together!<br />

BOCHOLTER <strong>KIRMES</strong><br />

Text: Michael Petersen<br />

Stadtmarketing in Bocholt is in charge of numerous<br />

and varied events. Apart from the local population,<br />

many visitors from the neighbouring Netherlands<br />

also participate in the ample choice of events in the<br />

city.<br />

Particularly enjoyable is a visit between 17 th and 20 th<br />

October, when Bocholt is truly buzzing once again with<br />

activities for the four-day Bocholt fair. Every year, this<br />

event not only enthrals hundreds of thousands of visitors<br />

from near and far, but even the participating showmen,<br />

as it is one of the events with the highest turnover in<br />

Germany. The fair is spreading from the Berliner Platz,<br />

Schanze, Rathausplatz, Gasthausplatz and Meckenemstraße.<br />

A couple of novelties carefully chosen – this year<br />

three attractions will celebrate their Bocholt première –<br />

and several relocations will result in a new fairground layout.<br />

Yet the fair in Bocholt is definitely never reinvented;<br />

it is only ever redesigned here and there, and therefore<br />

provides a new and vibrant image every year. This is not<br />

A LOOK FORWARD<br />

always easy, as the new security concept and lack of<br />

space sets limits to the layout, but the safety of visitors<br />

always comes first. Last year, there was no Ferris Wheel;<br />

instead the “City Sky Liner” smoothly whisked the visitors<br />

high up into the sky, providing them with a magnificent<br />

view. This year however, a Ferris Wheel will be presented<br />

again. The “Europa Rad” from the Kipp family will<br />

certainly be an eye catcher. The second towering<br />

attraction will be accommodated on the Berliner Platz.<br />

After a long absence, the “Power Tower 2” (Schneider)<br />

will make an appearance. With its varied ride programme<br />

it will provide superb ride fun with many thrill effects. The<br />

“Schloss Dracula” ghost ride (Schütze) will move to the<br />

outer row, and with the “Octopussy” (Markmann),<br />

“Breakdance” (Bruch) and “Shake” (Schäfer) the three<br />

open round ride classics will be presented once again.<br />

Also providing rides for the whole family will be the chain<br />

ride from Fuhrmann and Heitmann’s “Disco Jet”. Moreover,<br />

the two dodgem tracks from Schmidt and<br />

Schneider will be built up on the Berliner Platz. Salto<br />

Mortale” from Gusowski-Langenberg will offer visitors<br />

“over-the-top” enjoyment, and in Bruch’s “Spinning<br />

Racer” coaster fans will get their money's worth. On the<br />

access road to the Bayernfesthalle beer tent, visitors will<br />

this year encounter the “Looping the Loop” (von Olnhausen).<br />

The family will also present the second<br />

debutante for Bocholt, the “Villa Wahnsinn”, which will be<br />

placed on Meckenemstraße (along with the “Jump<br />

Street” Miami from Klaasen). Further along in the<br />

direction of the city centre, the “U 3000” (Ahrend) will be<br />

built up on the Schanze-fairground as the third novelty.<br />

The top-end site will be occupied by the “XXL” swing<br />

(Kipp-Denies), followed by the “Venezianische Pferdekarussell”<br />

(Langenberg), and the “Circus Circus”<br />

(Bruch-Gründler) will await the visitors in front of the city<br />

hall. The Twister from Berghaus, often called a “Bocholt<br />

fixture” will be located on the Gasthausplatz, slightly off<br />

the circuit course, and Schäfer’s “Turbo Force” will make<br />

its rounds in front of the grammar school. This appealing<br />

cornucopia of attractions will offer something for everybody's<br />

taste. The large Bayernfesthalle beer tent will<br />

offer an impressive programme throughout the event,<br />

such as the traditional opening of the fair on Friday at 9<br />

p.m., and the seniors already partying inside the tent in<br />

the afternoon. Moreover, a “Bavarian Evening” on Thursday<br />

– when the fair is still closed – will get the public<br />

attuned to the event. On Saturday, with the guests from<br />

the Netherlands celebrating the fair in their very special<br />

way, orange will be the predominating colour inside the<br />

beer tent. On Sunday, the ample music programme with<br />

Olaf Henning, Luna, and other popular pop stars will lure<br />

the public into the Bayernfesthalle. Monday will be completely<br />

devoted to the local music groups, closing the fair<br />

with a terrace party. Further highlights will be the happy<br />

hour on Friday from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. and the fireworks<br />

display at 8.30 p.m.<br />

Jan Vermolen comes fr om one of the oldest<br />

Dutch showman families, and his profession is<br />

dear to his hear t. V ermolen, who has been<br />

successfully operating se veral gastr onomic<br />

operations for some years now, has had plans<br />

for a second career within the famil y so to<br />

speak, for some time; namely a games booth,<br />

operated the wa y true sho wmen do, with<br />

announcements over the micr ophones, show<br />

and close contact with the public.<br />

In 2012, Vermolen happened to see a photo of an<br />

old game focussed on beautifully designed and<br />

colourfully decorated clown figures as the main<br />

focus. Even though he immediately began to<br />

search, it soon became apparent that there were<br />

hardly any games of this type left, and that production<br />

had already stopped<br />

many years ago. From the<br />

1930s, the game was known as<br />

“Laughin' Clown Game” and<br />

quite common mainly in the USA<br />

and in England up to the 1960s.<br />

As previously mentioned, Jan<br />

Vermolen had searched in vain<br />

for a manufacturer for a long<br />

time, so that when he finally hit<br />

lucky and got into contact with a<br />

company, who were able in<br />

January 2013 to rebuild a new<br />

game from polyester according<br />

to a still existing original, he<br />

commissioned 14 examples with little ado. At the<br />

same time, he set out to arrange for an appropriate<br />

arcade wagon and venues for the coming season.<br />

As many Dutch fairground directors were enthralled,<br />

Vermolen succeeded in presenting his<br />

novelty game at almost all the prestigious events<br />

this season. It is a completely mechanical game,<br />

with a small ball disappearing in the mouth of the<br />

moving clown and showing up again on one of the<br />

9 numbered tracks. The player gets 5 balls and at<br />

the end of the game the numbers are added up.<br />

The higher the number of points, the larger the<br />

prize one can choose. While Jan Vermolen will<br />

continue to concentrate on his gastronomic<br />

operations, his son Frederico will be in charge of<br />

the “Happy Clowns”. With his passionate and<br />

entertaining moderating, he even succeeded in<br />

winning the award for the “best game” at the<br />

Tilburg fair 2014.<br />

Once the two transport vehicles (one<br />

articulated lorry and one centre-station<br />

trailer) have been relocated to the new fairground,<br />

the articulated lorry is uncoupled on the<br />

left side next to the measured site, while the<br />

centre trailer is manoeuvred to the very centre<br />

of the front, hydraulically elevated, and the axles<br />

extended. After being lowered and balanced,<br />

the support sections of the station are carefully<br />

propped up with solid, square-sectioned timber<br />

and wooden panels to provide a stable foundation.<br />

This done, the base segments are laid out<br />

behind the station. (1)<br />

Once the centre trailer has been unfolded,<br />

the balcony is folded upwards and locked<br />

into position. Next, the annexes on the<br />

right and on the left side can be pulled out<br />

and mounted. This done, the platform is<br />

installed, balanced and propped up in front of<br />

the station and the paybox is manoeuvred into<br />

its position. (2 and 3)<br />

Once the assembly of the station has been completed,<br />

the base segments for the hall are laid<br />

out at right-angles and connected, set horizontally<br />

with the aid of a spirit level and propped up<br />

with pyramids and wood at regular distances.<br />

Next the floor segments are manually laid out in<br />

6 rows. (5)<br />

are installed on the rear side and the running<br />

boards are mounted. (6 and 7)<br />

Once the rafters have been mounted over the<br />

side sections of the front, the heavy entrance<br />

Next, the hall scaffolding is built up. First, the<br />

posts and roof connectors are laid out on the<br />

floor, before the posts can be elevated one after<br />

the other, and the roof connectors are fitted. Next<br />

the braces are mounted between the posts and<br />

the floor segments and secured by bolts. (10)<br />

After the build-up of the scaffolding, the side<br />

platforms of the hall are mounted, after which the<br />

earth cable for the power supply of the gondola<br />

engines is bolted into position, before the some<br />

SCHNAPS DROSSEL<br />

The new beverage<br />

outlet from the Hamburg firm,<br />

the “Schnaps Drossel”<br />

The Hamber ger famil y fr om<br />

Rostock have been specialising<br />

in tra velling gastr onomy f or<br />

some decades now; their snack<br />

and be verage operations<br />

“Schlemmer Kate”, “Piraten<br />

Grill”, “Sc hlemmer Stube” and<br />

“Old Mill” ranking among popular guests at many<br />

events. With the “Sc hnaps Dr ossel”, a ne w<br />

beverage outlet has been ad ded to the copious<br />

selection of attractions.<br />

Punctually completed and delivered according to<br />

schedule by the Dietz firm, it was possible to open the<br />

“Schnaps Drossel” at the Peenefest in Demmin. The<br />

axles of the compact construction can be hydraulically<br />

lowered, and the name sign and the roof framework<br />

are folded down for relocation. The attraction was<br />

equipped with modern, power-saving appliances. In<br />

addition to refrigerators, an ice crusher and dish<br />

washer, a refrigerated display the same length as the<br />

counter was incorporated. Apart from several types of<br />

beers, the ample beverage choice also includes<br />

various types of high-quality wine and champagne. Of<br />

course, non-alcoholic beverages, cocktails and long<br />

drinks are served as well. The beer kegs are stored in<br />

a cooler next to the counter and can also be used as<br />

a standing counter; the kegs are however connected<br />

with the peripheral beer taps via hoses. The “Schnaps<br />

Drossel” has ground measurements of 7 x 5 metres<br />

and electrical requirements of about 5 kW. The<br />

Hamburg family present their attractions mainly in<br />

Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Saxony, Saxony-<br />

Anhalt, Thuringia, Brandenburg and Berlin. Moreover,<br />

they have made guest appearances also at a number<br />

new snack booth<br />

Daniel Beisel fr om Bad Dürkheim,<br />

Palatinate, presented her<br />

brand new “Dannys Grillhütte”<br />

snack booth for the first time at<br />

the city festival in Mannheim in<br />

June.<br />

The modern 2-axle sales trailer,<br />

built by Spezialfahrzeugbau Pfaff<br />

in Buchheim, near Leipzig, has a<br />

rustic-styled design. The chassis<br />

is hydraulically lowered and the<br />

canopy is also hydraulically folded. The Grillhütte<br />

has been equipped with a telescopic counter,<br />

sliding side windows and electric aluminium blinds.<br />

The roof and the dormer are covered with genuine<br />

wood clapboard. At the rear side, there is an extendible<br />

bay with a built-in oven for the rolls. The highquality<br />

steel frills were built by the KSF firm. The<br />

name sign on the roof was built as a flaming LED<br />

sign by the Reckmann firm in Oberhausen. The<br />

lighting system consists of ball-shaped LED lamps<br />

enhancing the rustic-style appearance of the<br />

attraction. In the sales area there is a flat screen display,<br />

on which commercials for the upcoming<br />

events can be shown. The menu mainly provides<br />

Pfälzer Bratwurst, Saumagen (a pig’s stomach<br />

stuffed with meat and vegetables), Winzersteak<br />

(vintners' steak), fried chips, game specialities and<br />

chilli sausages, as well as a pan-fried dish for<br />

vegetarians. The construction has ground measurements<br />

of 6 x 3.5 metres and is 5 metres high. It takes<br />

about 30 minutes for build-up; when fully-assembled<br />

the draw bar can be folded to the side. “Dannys<br />

Grillhütte” was presented at, among other events,<br />

the Hessentag (Hessen Day) in Bensheim, various<br />

wine and street festivals in the Bad Dürkheim region,<br />

and at the fair in Bad Kreuznach. In addition to the<br />

Grillhütte, Daniel Beisel also tours a kiddie railway<br />

attraction and a crêpe wagon.<br />

Martina Janßen from Bersenbrück presented her<br />

brand ne w sales wa gon “Mandel-Brennerei” at<br />

the Stoppelmarkt in V echta. Her father , Mar tin<br />

Meyer, is a roasted almond veteran, and is wellknown<br />

throughout the region.<br />

Tragically, Martina Janßen’s husband, Manuel<br />

Janßen, died in a traffic accident this May before the<br />

completion of the “Mandel-Brennerei”. The Dietz firm<br />

realised many of the ideas and wishes<br />

of his in the manufacture of the<br />

wagon, which was designed by the<br />

afaw firm after his tragic death. LED<br />

lights were installed for lighting the<br />

attraction, boasting ground measurements<br />

of 9 x 4 metres (including<br />

pulled-out bay). On offer are fine confectioneries,<br />

freshly roasted almonds, delicious chocolate-coated<br />

fruits, candy floss, fresh popcorn and much more.<br />

Martina Janßen has been energetically supported by<br />

her father, her deceased husband’s family, and Harry<br />

Wegener. The “Mandel-Brennerei” will be presented<br />

at many events in Lower Saxony, North-Rhine Westphalia<br />

and North Hessen. This year its tour schedule<br />

includes Oldenburg, Lohne, Nordhorn and<br />

Osnabrück.<br />

PORTRAIT<br />

“Crazy Town” from<br />

Wagner in current design<br />

Glass lab yrinths at V olksfest<br />

events and markets ha ve a long<br />

tradition. In the 1990s, the<br />

Moonen brothers from Holland –<br />

known in the industry for original<br />

funhouses and ghost rides –<br />

introduced a new labyrinth to the<br />

fairground circuit, which despite<br />

being compact has tw o le vels<br />

when assembled.<br />

Enrico (l.) and Ricardo Wagner<br />

Crazy Town<br />

The attraction was sold to Germany after two<br />

seasons. Back then, the Stuttgart Renz firm<br />

bought the attraction, probably as an interesting<br />

alternative to the<br />

“Hollywood” funhouse<br />

(also owned by<br />

the family) that was in<br />

particularly strong<br />

demand. Being on<br />

tour under the<br />

management of Renz<br />

from 1998 to 2004, the attraction<br />

repeatedly featured large and small<br />

changes in decoration, light and design,<br />

the most prominent being the new<br />

painting introducing funny elements to<br />

mere animal motifs. Later on, the affix “Der<br />

verrückte Urwald” was added to the “Crazy<br />

Jungle” name sign at the top of the front.<br />

58


In the winter of 2004, the Renz family parted with<br />

the attraction and sold it to Enrico Wagner from<br />

Karlsruhe, who thereby changed from the ride to<br />

the fun sector – energetically supported by his<br />

son Ricardo. In the course of the new redesigning<br />

the Jungle theme was finally discarded and<br />

the attraction was renamed to “Crazy Town”. The<br />

staircases into the attraction are now also<br />

“history”. They have been replaced by an<br />

additional fun course (built by the Gosetto firm)<br />

with many effects forming the entrance to the<br />

second level built on in front. As a result, visitors<br />

are now offered three walkthrough levels.<br />

Naturally, the labyrinth made of<br />

glass and mirrors – now supplemented<br />

by many classic fun effects<br />

– is and remains the core of the<br />

“Crazy Town”.<br />

According to Enrico Wagner, a new<br />

light concept is currently being<br />

realized to perfectly round off the<br />

attraction’s visual appearance. The<br />

measurements of the “Crazy Town”: front 20 m,<br />

depth 9 m and height 11m.<br />

The construction over<br />

the times: 1996 under<br />

management of first owner<br />

Gebr. Moonen from Holland<br />

(l.). Next: 1998 under<br />

management of the Renz firm<br />

with new painting<br />

Under Renz management<br />

in 1999 a new name “Der<br />

verrückte Urwald” (l.), later it<br />

became the “Crazy Jungle” and<br />

“Crazy Town” – until rebuilding<br />

in 2014 with a staircase<br />

Final results at the lar gest fair on the<br />

Rhine were relativel y modest this y ear.<br />

“Only” 3.6 million visitors enjoyed themselves<br />

on the largest fair on the Rhine between<br />

the Rhein-Knie and the Oberkasseler<br />

Bridg e; some 600,000 visitor s<br />

less than last year.<br />

Several negative factors affected the showmen<br />

and brought about modest overall<br />

results. As is well-known, expectations are<br />

very high in Düsseldorf. The Düsseldorf<br />

Rheinwiese fair is normally a guarantee for<br />

good financial results; within just a couple of<br />

hours extremely high turnover can be<br />

achieved – in good weather for hours and<br />

even days – and last year even throughout<br />

almost the whole event. These results were<br />

clearly remembered by all participants.<br />

While this year’s opening day was slightly<br />

weaker than last year, the first Saturday<br />

turned out satisfactorily for the majority of<br />

participants, as turnover almost lived up to<br />

that of the previous year. Sunday was the first big<br />

turning point though. The finale of the FIFA World Cup<br />

in Brazil, Germany vs. Argentina, mesmerising the<br />

population was held at 9 p.m. There was no other<br />

subject for discussion in Germany, and with people<br />

leaving already in the late afternoon, the Düsseldorf<br />

fairground was completely empty at the time of the<br />

finale. The beer tent operators had prepared themselves<br />

for the mega event, and succeeded in retaining<br />

some visitors with giant screens. Germany<br />

became world champion and night was turned into<br />

day; there was extensive partying everywhere.<br />

As a result, the usually strong-turnover Pink-Monday<br />

was also a failure. Apparently, the party-goers were<br />

exhausted! Moreover, the countless world champion<br />

parties had cost a great deal of money, which was<br />

now not available for a proper fairground tour.<br />

Certainly, school holidays in North-Rhine Westphalia<br />

also resulted in low visitor attendance at the largest<br />

fair on Rhine. On top of all this, temperatures steadily<br />

rose Monday, reaching their maximum at the weekend.<br />

It was unbearably hot, particularly in the afternoon,<br />

with temperatures between 30°C and 35°C. In<br />

the sweltering afternoon, only a few visitors by<br />

60


Düsseldorf standards strayed out to the wonderful<br />

fairground. In short, there was the proverbial gremlin<br />

at the event this year. Well worth mentioning were the<br />

security measures for the fair; everything worked out<br />

perfectly. The police review was equally positive. The<br />

number of thefts was very low, and only two extremely<br />

drunk visitors were arrested – a stark contrast with the<br />

Munich Oktoberfest 2013, when 750 people were<br />

“requested” to sober up. Moreover, only 220 illegally<br />

parked vehicles were towed away; a historic low. 80%<br />

of the visitors arrived by way of the Rheinbahn public<br />

transport system - a record number.<br />

The number of novelties for Düsseldorf was manageable.<br />

With the family coaster “Willy der Wurm” from<br />

Frank Roos, engaged after the cancellation of the<br />

“Schnauferl”, visitors were able to encounter one<br />

attraction completely new for Düsseldorf. The “Super<br />

Chaos” novelty, built up on the traditional “Nessy”<br />

site, was presented without backflash – thus providing<br />

an unattractive view of the baggage van and a<br />

toilet wagon. On its new site “in the bay”, “Nessy” did<br />

not fare very well. Actually, only the “Flasher” did<br />

good business in this section, its site being perfect<br />

with the gondolas racing up the slope towards the<br />

arriving visitors. The unparalleled “Toboggan” from<br />

Fischer, on the other hand, achieved better results on<br />

its new site compared to its previous experience at<br />

the bay. Nevertheless, this unique fun ride truly<br />

deserves a top site too. However, Oberschelp’s “High<br />

Impress” may well have been allocated the worst site<br />

among all the novelties. Built up at the end of the<br />

circuit course – and partially eclipsed by a continental<br />

pick stand offering floral prizes, the fastest<br />

frying pan in the world made a slightly dismal<br />

impression. There was some “light and shade” with<br />

regard to the beer tents on offer. The changes in the<br />

“Alpenwelt” from Renoldi were very well received by<br />

the visitors, and proved really quite compelling with<br />

its spacious beer garden with additional roofing, its<br />

good music programme and its ample range of<br />

dishes, it was very well attended throughout the<br />

event. The open design of the “Schumacher-<br />

Scheune” tent with adjoining beer garden was also<br />

very effective. The “Füchschen” tent is in a class of<br />

its own – first class in all sectors – and is just not to<br />

be beaten. As the elation about the return of the<br />

Uerige brewery to the Rheinwiese fair was considerable<br />

in the run-up to the event, disappointment about<br />

the very simple and plain design of its tent may well<br />

have exceeded the initial elation.<br />

■<br />

A LOOK BACK<br />

OPENING<br />

According to tradition, the<br />

largest fair on the Rhine is<br />

opened by the Düsseldorf<br />

Lord Mayor. That has<br />

always been the recognised<br />

“norm”. And<br />

what about this year?<br />

Where was Mr. Elbers?<br />

The Düsseldorf Lord<br />

Mayer was voted out of<br />

office in a second ballot;<br />

the election results being<br />

a true punishment. Even<br />

though he remained in<br />

office up until 1 st September,<br />

the official end of his<br />

term, he was seen in<br />

public only every now<br />

and then. The Düsseldorf<br />

residents were highly disappointed<br />

about the<br />

conduct of their former<br />

Oberburgermeister. As a<br />

result, the opening ceremony<br />

was held by his<br />

popular junior, Mayor,<br />

Friedrich G. Conzen. ■<br />

The Jacobi-Kirmes is organised by fairground director<br />

The fair was opened on Saturday after the church<br />

service at 6 p.m. by deputy mayor, Maria Schulte-Loh<br />

and showman spokesman, Klaus Rasch. After short<br />

speeches ride chips were showered on the visitors and<br />

the traditional stroll across the fairground was held<br />

afterwards. Built up on Himmelstraße were the<br />

“Adrenalin” Freefall Tower (Bügler) and the “Jump<br />

Street” Miami (Klaasen). On Konermannstraße, where<br />

the “Musik Shop” (Rasch) made its rounds this time,<br />

residents had come up with a special idea. They put<br />

up a banner saying “VIP Lounge” to emphasize the<br />

very good relationship between the showmen and the<br />

“Jump Street” Miami<br />

in Ascheberg<br />

the Wave-Swinger (Wendler) was presented<br />

on the Kirchplatz. Moreover, the younger visitors were<br />

able to enjoy several kiddie rides and a Punch and<br />

Judy show. A number of concession stalls rounded of<br />

the cornucopia of attractions. On Sunday and Monday<br />

a bric-a-brac market was held on Sandstraße and,<br />

according to tradition, Monday was dedicated entirely<br />

to the fire brigade, with events beginning at 10 a.m.<br />

with a major spectacular fire fighting exercise. ■<br />

The Zerbst Heimat und Sc hützenfest,<br />

held fr om 1 st to 11 th August,<br />

is the largest and longestrunning<br />

Volksfest in Saxony-Anhalt.<br />

Ever y y ear, the e vent attracts<br />

thousands of visitors from<br />

near and far to the to wn in the<br />

Anhalt-Bitterfeld district, where<br />

Schlossfreiheit and the castle<br />

garden are transf ormed into a<br />

large am usement area f or the<br />

duration of 11 days.<br />

More than 70 showmen built up an<br />

appealing Lunapark offering racy<br />

and family-friendly attractions on<br />

the festival grounds. At the main entrance, Sobczyk’s<br />

“Breakdance” made its rounds, and on the area next<br />

to the castle ruins visitors encountered Schleck’s<br />

“Europa Rad” along with the ghost ride (Hahnemann)<br />

and the “Star Drive” dodgem<br />

track (Engelbrecht). Moreover,<br />

the fairground's grassy<br />

areas and the castle garden<br />

accommodated the “Musikpalast”<br />

(Jacob), the “Atlantis”<br />

labyrinth (Siewiera & Drechsler),<br />

the “6. Dimension”<br />

simulator, and “Super Hopser”<br />

(Weiß), as well as the<br />

“Magic” (Herrmann). The<br />

younger visitors enjoyed the<br />

“Super 8 Truck” kiddie track<br />

ride (Katzschmann), kiddie<br />

railway (Eckermann), kiddie<br />

carousel (Haase), pony ride<br />

(Glaß), horse carousel<br />

(Siewiera & Drechsler), “Safari<br />

Jet” (Walz) and a Bungee-<br />

Trampoline (Krebs). A Continental<br />

pick stand and a<br />

number of games booths<br />

rounded of the entertainment<br />

contingent. Snack, beverage<br />

and confectionery booths, as<br />

well as several local gastronomic<br />

operations provided visitors with an ample<br />

selection of food and drinks. However, there were<br />

several drawbacks in the layout, as due to the low<br />

number of top-end sites compromises had to be made,<br />

and several attractions had to be fitted between the<br />

trees. The supporting programme: During the first<br />

weekend, equestrian sports fans got their money’s<br />

worth. From 1 st to 3 rd August, the horse riding, jumping<br />

and driving tournament with participants from several<br />

federal states was held for the 58 th time. Moreover,<br />

there were the 10 th Schleifchen Badminton tournament<br />

on 3 rd August, the crossbow shooting on both weekends,<br />

and a skat tournament on the second Sunday.<br />

The lucky draw of the now 113 th “Zerbst Pferdemarktlotterie”<br />

by the town’s Tourist Agency may well be<br />

unique in Saxony-Anhalt; this year’s main prizes being<br />

a car as well as 665 gifts and cash prizes. Further highlights<br />

were the Raketenabend (Rocket Night) with a<br />

short fireworks display on the Thursday and the two<br />

Family Days on the Wednesday and the second Monday.<br />

The “crowning” of the Heimat and Schützenfest<br />

was a brilliant fireworks display under the motto “Ein<br />

Himmel voller Farben und Musik”, or “A sky full of<br />

colours and music” held again in the castle garden on<br />

the second Sunday at 10.30 p.m The event’s financial<br />

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

expectations this year as, there were sometimes very<br />

few visitors on the fairground due to rain (at times,<br />

torrential) with heavy gusts of wind and high<br />

temperatures.<br />

With about 110,000 visitor s, the three-da y “Klein-<br />

Amerika” e vent in the Upper P alatinate in earl y<br />

August ac hieved ne w recor d-breaking visitor<br />

numbers. On the final day, traffic came to a standstill<br />

all over the region – everybody wanted to go to<br />

the German-American V olksfest in Graf enwöhr.<br />

Some 75 hectolitres of beer and shandy, as well as<br />

12 hectolitres of non-alcoholic be verages were<br />

sold inside the beer tent.<br />

After last year’s cancellation due to the Americans’ costcutting<br />

measures, this year’s event brought about highly<br />

satisfying business, with many stalls being completely<br />

“sold-out” on the final day. As usual, the 56 th German-<br />

American Volksfest in Grafenwöhr, organised by the US-<br />

Army Garrison Grafenwöhr and the German-American<br />

Gemeinsame Ausschuss Grafenwöhr (DAGA), was held<br />

in the military training area. On the festival ground in<br />

Camp Kasserine, a large fairground accommodating<br />

ride constructions, including those from the firms Kollmann<br />

(Allround), Mölter (Super Tower), Denk (Simulator),<br />

Perz (Dodgem Track), Armbrecht (Nightstyle), Schinkel<br />

(Polyp), Zinnecker (Rol Over) and Sipkema (Projekt 1)<br />

lured the public. The show and fun sector was represented<br />

by the Hofmann-Jehn firm with “Freddy’s<br />

Company”. In addition, more than 100 stalls with<br />

souvenirs and gifts, as well as an ample international<br />

selection of dishes, such as American ice cream,<br />

hamburgers, cheeseburgers, barbeque ribs, tacos,<br />

barbeque chicken, Hot Dogs, steaks, baked potatoes,<br />

Gyros, smoked fish, chicken, grilled pork and egg rolls.<br />

As is tradition, an exhibition of equipment from the<br />

German Armed Forces and the US Army accompanied<br />

the event. The shuttle buses, providing a smooth journey<br />

to and from the event, still enjoy unflagging popularity. At<br />

peak times, 20 buses, all of them working at maximum<br />

capacity, were running up until well after midnight on four<br />

routes. As was the case in all the proceeding years, the<br />

organiser's revenues from the Volksfest were spent on<br />

social projects, such as the youth and students’ exchange<br />

programme between<br />

Germany an America, charitable<br />

institutions, schools, kindergartens,<br />

kiddie playgrounds, retirement<br />

homes and needy people in the<br />

north of the Upper Palatinate. “This<br />

year, the German-American Volksfest<br />

exceeded all expectations. All<br />

the participants are happy,” the<br />

German organiser, showman Peter<br />

Renner summarized the event.<br />

Colonel Mark A. Colbrook is the new<br />

commander at the US-Army base<br />

Grafenwöhr and a Volksfest fan.<br />

As commnder he is also responsible<br />

for the good connections and cooperation<br />

with the municipality in the<br />

Upper Palatinate, and the friendship<br />

of Germans and Americans. Everybody<br />

hopes that he will continue to<br />

speak up for the event. About 35,000<br />

US-Americans are living in the Upper<br />

Palatinate. Last year, the US-Army<br />

Garrison Grafenwöhr was renamed as<br />

US-Army Garrison Bavaria. ■<br />

The fair in the Münsterland city<br />

of Gre ven was held in the city<br />

centre from 23 rd to 25 th August.<br />

140 showmen were approved for<br />

the event under the management<br />

of fairground director Christoph<br />

Kemper.<br />

On Rathausplatz visitors encountered<br />

the “Phoenix” (Gusowski),<br />

the “New World 3000”<br />

simulator (Welte), “Disco-Jet” (Heitmann), “Crazy<br />

Mouse” (Janßen), the “Formel 1” dodgem track (Heitmann),<br />

“Top Drive” (Ahrend) and the “X-Factor”<br />

(Deinert). Built up on the Wilhelmsplatz were the “Highway<br />

No. 1” (Schneider), “Jekyll & Hyde” propeller<br />

(Thelen), “Wellenflug” (Wendler), “Breakdance”<br />

(Piontek), the kiddie ride (Wöstmann) and the “Jumboflug”<br />

(Wegener). Moreover, the younger Volksfest<br />

visitors were able to enjoy the kiddie chain ride (Altrogge),<br />

the “Zauberwelt” kiddie ride (Wegener), the<br />

“Wilder Clown” kiddie coaster (Weber), the minidodgem<br />

(Wegener) and the Jet Ride (Stippich).<br />

Numerous confectionery stalls, snack booths, games<br />

booths, beverage outlets and sales booths rounded off<br />

the selection off attractions.<br />

On Saturday afternoon the fair began with fully oneand-a-half<br />

hours of “happy hour” time at the ride<br />

attractions. At 3:30 p.m., Mayor Peter Vennemeyer and<br />

the showman spokesman, Philipp Heitmann, opened<br />

the fair at the Westphalia Puppenbühne (puppet<br />

theatre) from Adolf Horz. During the ceremony, the fairground<br />

organ donation of €250 for residents – which<br />

was disrupted by a storm - was handed over by<br />

Philipp Heitmann to the city. The opening was followed<br />

by a performance of the Westphalia Puppenbühne<br />

and the traditional stroll across the fairground. On<br />

Saturday evening a fireworks display was held after<br />

dark, and on the Monday morning the event was<br />

closed with the Lambertusmarkt, where market<br />

merchants offered many useful items for daily life. ■<br />

In five da ys, the 66 th Wine Festival<br />

in the 9,000-resident to wn of<br />

Volkach, located in Lo wer Franconia<br />

between Sc hweinfurt and<br />

Würzburg, attracted about 50,000<br />

visitors.<br />

The Franconian wine festival calendar<br />

gives hundreds of events like this<br />

throughout this wine-growing region,<br />

many of them without showman participation. This is<br />

absolutely not the case in Volkach, where the seating<br />

possibilities under chestnut and plane trees along the<br />

Stadtallee are surrounded by renowned snack<br />

booths, serving products from self-promoting wine<br />

growers, as well as local wine grower cooperatives.<br />

In addition to more than 150 wines served during the<br />

five-day festival, visitors are able to enjoy a fairground<br />

further along the road, on which the Uebel & Sachs<br />

firm from the Schweinfurt district as the lease holder<br />

sets up the “X-Flight” swing, the “Jumper” Miami, and<br />

the dodgem track.<br />

Other attractions presented were the “Super Tower”<br />

Freefall Tower and the shooting gallery from the<br />

Coburg Mölter firm, as well as the classic kiddie ride<br />

from the Aalen Kübler firm. While entry to the wine<br />

festival area is 1.50, admittance to the fairground is<br />

free. The shuttle bus was permanently crowded. The<br />

supporting programme includes the Wine Princesses’<br />

Wunderkerzenzauber, or sparkler event, as well<br />

as a varied music programme. As a number of bus<br />

companies offer day trips to the wine festival, the<br />

7,000 available seats were occupied throughout the<br />

festival.<br />

August) – and the car park<br />

What had happened? Heavy<br />

rain falls during the week of<br />

build up had made the large<br />

car park located at the<br />

entrance of the city impassable,<br />

so the entrance gate<br />

remained closed on opening<br />

day, causing chaos on the community’s roads.<br />

As the few other car parks were occupied in no time, it<br />

took many visitors quite some time to find a free parking<br />

space. Those who eventually reached the fairground<br />

were rewarded for their patient search for a parking spot<br />

with an attractive fair and an adjoining bric-a-brac<br />

market. Built up on the spacious fairground grassy areas<br />

were the “Columbia” Ferris Wheel, the Wave-Swinger,<br />

the Musik Express and the large “Breakdance”, along<br />

with the “Revolution”, “Burg des Grauens” ghost ride<br />

and the “Wilde Maus”. In the city centre, the “Flash”<br />

towered over the colourful fairground. Moreover,<br />

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

rides. After a somewhat quiet start in the early afternoon,<br />

the crowd on the fairground and the streets steadily increased,<br />

and in the evening hours there was barely any<br />

room left to move. A special crowd puller was the party<br />

mile on the market square with live music, food and<br />

drinks, friendly conversation and amicable celebrating<br />

with non-resident visitors. The highlight of the evening<br />

was the brilliant fireworks display that truly enthralled the<br />

crowd. On the Sunday morning, the party went on with<br />

a morning pint event accompanied by the Heid music<br />

band. Monday was a ‘day off’ - although not completely,<br />

it must be said, as there was extensive partying at the<br />

“Flunkyball”, the “Stammtisch Schützenfest” and the<br />

merry “Planwagen-Fahrten” (trips on covered wagons).<br />

The bric-a-brac market, also including sales stalls and<br />

events from local restaurants and retailers, offering a<br />

varied and interesting product choice once again, and<br />

the large animal show on Tuesday marked the end of the<br />

Kärmetze.<br />

This year, the build-up of the Rutenfest (25 th to<br />

29 th July) proved a feat of organisation, with the<br />

majority of sho wmen arriving and commencing<br />

the build-up of their attractions more-orless<br />

on the same day.<br />

The fairground directors having prepared themselves<br />

for this situation in good time, were able to<br />

guarantee a smooth, problem-free build-up procedure<br />

without long waiting times for the showmen.<br />

Not even the arrival with caravans at 2 a.m.<br />

deterred them from welcoming the new arrivals in<br />

person and allocating sites for caravans and<br />

baggage vans. During the build-up, the showmen<br />

proved very cooperative and considerate. Rides<br />

presented on the fairground were “Rio Rapidos”<br />

(Kaiser), “Devil Rock” (Steffen), “Transformer”<br />

(Schmidt) “Musik Express” (Kinzler) “Nessy”<br />

(Markmann) “Wellenflug” (Baumgartner), “Jupiter”<br />

Ferris Wheel (Barth-Kipp), “Traumgenerator”<br />

(Häsler-Lemonie), and Dodgem Track (Vogt),<br />

along with a number of kiddie rides. When the<br />

Rutenfest was opened with the traditional canon<br />

salute on Ruten Friday at 5 p.m. in perfect<br />

and sat in the beer gardens enjoying the<br />

delicacies offered by the sales stalls. While the<br />

weather was rainy on Saturday and rather<br />

unpleasant on Sunday, beautiful weather during<br />

the historic procession on Ruten Monday resulted<br />

in high visitor attendance. Despite forecast rainfalls,<br />

the weather was dry on Tuesday, when a fireworks<br />

display was held. All in all, the Rutenfest<br />

Commission, the showmen and all the stall<br />

operators could look back on a successful and<br />

peaceful event.<br />

Wheel came to Röbel/Müritz<br />

Text & Photos: Kai Morawetz<br />

The Seefest in Röbel on the shore of Lake Müritz is<br />

one of the most popular Volksfest events throughout<br />

the surrounding region. As a rule, the annual<br />

highlight in the calendar of events of the small town<br />

in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania is held on the<br />

third weekend in July.<br />

This year, the 59 th edition of the most popular event on<br />

Lake Müritz, held between the town harbour and the<br />

medieval town centre of Röbel from 18 th to 20 th July,<br />

offered three days of music, fun and high spirits once<br />

again. The highlights of the Seefest were, among<br />

others, the Neptune and Kiddie Festival on Friday, the<br />

marketer mile in the fishermen's village on Saturday<br />

and Sunday, as well as<br />

the traditional ‘morning<br />

pint’ event on Sunday.<br />

Moreover, the event<br />

was accompanied by<br />

various musical and<br />

dancing events. In<br />

addition, visitors were<br />

able to enjoy a fair built<br />

up in the festival area in<br />

the harbour, organised<br />

for some years now by<br />

the showmen Jens<br />

Hamberger and Rainer<br />

Taube. For the small<br />

town, the entertainment<br />

contingent offered<br />

on the fairground was once again quite impressive<br />

this year. Even though a “big hit” was missing, the<br />

attractions built up offered something for all visitor<br />

groups. Attractions presented were the “Breakdance”<br />

(Th. Engelbrecht), the “Star Drive” dodgem track (S.<br />

Engelbrecht), the family coaster “Tornado” (Domke),<br />

the simulator “Time Visitor” (Walkhoefer), and the “Star<br />

of Berlin” Ferris Wheel (Lorenz), offering visitors a<br />

magnificent view across Germany’s largest lake.<br />

Moreover, the newly designed Walkthrough construction<br />

“Fantastic World” built by Rick Hamberger<br />

himself some years ago, provided special 3D effects<br />

and fun for the whole family, and younger visitors were<br />

able to enjoy the nostalgic kiddie carousel (Harndt)<br />

and a modern kiddie carousel from Probst. In addition<br />

to two Continental pick stands, visitors also encountered<br />

a shooting gallery and a ball throwing booth, as well<br />

as the “Whirl Ball” attraction from Simone Freitag, built<br />

by the Dietz firm, celebrating a successful première.<br />

Among the beverage outlets, Jens Hamberger not only<br />

presented his “Old Mile”, but also his new “Schnaps<br />

Drossel” attraction, providing the visitors with drinks<br />

and food, along with other drink, snack and sweets<br />

booths. On Friday and Saturday, two fantastic fireworks<br />

displays were held on Lake Müritz, the “Trilogie<br />

des Feuers” to mark the opening on Friday evening –<br />

financed by the showmen – and another brilliant fireworks<br />

display that transformed the Röbel sky into a<br />

colourful sea of flames. Despite tropical temperatures<br />

throughout the event, the Seefest was very well<br />

attended by locals and visitors from throughout the<br />

surrounding region alike.<br />

TILBURG (NL)<br />

Text & Photos:<br />

Norman Vogt<br />

With 1.3 million visitors, this year’s Tilburg fair held from 18 th to<br />

27 th July attracted fewer guests to the Dutch city in the province<br />

of Nordbrabant than in the last few years.<br />

One reason for the decrease in visitor numbers may well have been<br />

the high temperatures of much more than 30°C at lunchtime on the<br />

first opening weekend which, understandably enough, led to the<br />

luring of only a couple of visitors to the 4.5-km festival-mile. Therefore<br />

it was no wonder that a number of showmen did not open their<br />

attractions at midday as usual, but somewhat later. Moreover, the<br />

atmosphere was subdued this year due to the MH 17 plane crash<br />

(as reported in the September issue), and a fire on the first opening<br />

day that affected several attractions. The largest fair in the Benelux<br />

once again proved tempting with a number of novelties and fast<br />

rides. While the “Teststrecke” coaster, once again built up at the railway<br />

underpass, was presented for the third time, the large<br />

“Monster” swing and the “Tower Event Center"” were new for Tilburg.<br />

Among the other debutantes were “Der Burner” (Meisel), the<br />

“Hangover” swing, the “Das Omen” Walkthrough construction, the<br />

“Dragon” family coaster, the “Commander” (Hanstein), the “Geister<br />

Villa” ghost ride and the purple Ferris Wheel (Bruch). In the<br />

nostalgic section, magnificent and well looked after carousels were<br />

built up, taking one or two visitors back to the good old days. The<br />

event was accompanied by a varied supporting programme including<br />

the popular Roze Mandag and the fireworks display on the final<br />

opening day.<br />

For a proud 125 years, the British association, the Showmen's Guild of<br />

Great Britain, also member of the European Showman's Union, has<br />

been fighting for the rights and interest of its members, as well as the<br />

Volksfests. A very special honour was awarded to the Scottish section<br />

Representatives of the Showmen's Guild of Great Britain, among them President<br />

David Wallis and Alex James Colquhoun, President of the Scottish<br />

Showmen’s Guild, followed as invited guests the speeches of the parliamentary<br />

representatives.<br />

The Parliament initially congratulated the showmen on the 125th association<br />

anniversary and wished them much success for the future. The representatives<br />

further referred to the historic, cultural, and economic meaning<br />

of Volksfests. The showman profession is an essential and integral part<br />

of Scottish culture. The presentations and family friendly offers are unique.<br />

The show-women and our showmen offer visitors an experience world that<br />

one cannot experience anywhere else. At the same time they are experts in<br />

the organisation of the events, and the safety of the ride constructions,<br />

games and attractions. For this, the showmen and show-women deserve<br />

the respect of the Parliament and the people of the country.<br />

Keyword: Showmen’s Guild of Great Britain<br />

The British showman association was initially founded in 1889 as the United<br />

Kingdom Van Dwellers Protection Association in England's Salford. In 1917<br />

the name was changed to the Showmen’s Guild of Britain. The trade association<br />

represents these days the interests of around 4,700 members and<br />

their families in ten regional sections, among them Yorkshire, Southern<br />

Wales and Scotland.<br />

Obituary – Gust Dillen<br />

The European Showman Union is<br />

mourning Gust Dillen, member of the<br />

board of the Belgian showman association<br />

VBF/DFB and Belgian delegate<br />

of the ESU, who passed away on the 17 th<br />

August at 69 years of age.<br />

With the passing of Gust Dillen, the<br />

European showman family has lost a<br />

personality, who through his tireless<br />

engagement earned endless respect.<br />

Gust Dillen was an important trailblazer<br />

for the future of the Belgian and international<br />

showman profession, and is a<br />

role model for our youth.<br />

In his own typical showman and collegial<br />

ways, he fought his whole life long Gust Dillen (f.r.), at the ESU Congress in October 2012 in<br />

for the symbol and support of our profession.<br />

sympathy to his family in the name of the complete association.<br />

EUROPEAN STAR AWARD 2014<br />

EUROPE’S BEST THEME PARKS<br />

EUROPA-PARK<br />

Europa-<strong>Park</strong> was again very<br />

convincing and elected as<br />

Europe’s Best Theme <strong>Park</strong> in the<br />

third European Star Award. The<br />

family-operated park’s outstanding<br />

position is secured by its innovations<br />

and large investments.<br />

Almost every season sees the<br />

opening of a large attraction,<br />

which naturally leads to an increase in visitors annually.<br />

No other park has the good fortune of its operating<br />

family being simultaneously a manufacturer of attractive<br />

rides. And so Europa-<strong>Park</strong> is not only a tourist and<br />

popular recreation destination, but at the same time is<br />

a showcase for Mack Rides. This year’s new development<br />

“Arthur und die Minimoys”, which reached second<br />

place in the category “Europe’s Best New Rides”<br />

should also be viewed from this aspect.<br />

■<br />

PORT AVENTURA<br />

Quite rightly, the Spanish theme park<br />

PortAventura has been voted 2 nd<br />

place once again this year. Located in the<br />

immediate vicinity of the Mediterranean<br />

in sunny Spain, the park has a great<br />

holiday atmosphere often remaining<br />

open until midnight, and the mixture of<br />

family friendly and breathtaking attractions make Port-<br />

Aventura a unique experience that is attractive to both<br />

families and young people. Additionally there are very<br />

few parks in Europe that have made such large<br />

investments as the theme park resort located near<br />

Barcelona, presenting an unparalleled large attraction<br />

almost every year.<br />

■<br />

thrills the European Star Award


DISNEYLAND PARK PARIS<br />

The French Disneyland counts<br />

without any doubt amongst the<br />

best of the best. Added to that, this<br />

European Disneyland contains<br />

more thrill attractions (among them<br />

two Looping Coasters) than any other Disneyland <strong>Park</strong><br />

in the world by far. So it’s not without good reason that<br />

the Disneyland <strong>Park</strong> Paris has been voted to be in the<br />

top positions again, as it not only offers enough variety<br />

for children, but also for teenagers and adults. ■<br />

EFTELING<br />

At over 60 years of age the theme park resort in the<br />

Netherlands stands for fairytales, fun, and entertainment.<br />

It is a huge fairytale land for children, as well<br />

as being a large theme park for young adults and<br />

adults alike. The 200 hectare sized area also contains<br />

the extensive holiday village “Bosrijk” in the style of a<br />

small village. Particular value is also attached to high<br />

quality shows such as “Raveleijn” and “Aquanura”. ■<br />

TIVOLI GARDENS<br />

The oldest, still existing<br />

amusement park already<br />

opened in 1843, and is still<br />

located in the heart of the<br />

capital city of Denmark. It is<br />

not only an attractive theme<br />

park dedicated to both tradition as well as thrillseekers,<br />

but is also “Copenhagen’s parlour”, with<br />

restaurants and concerts inviting guest to visit every<br />

evening. Being open until midnight, the park offers all<br />

night owls attractive rides, very often a party atmosphere,<br />

and a fantastic sea of lights.<br />

EUROPE’S BEST FAMILY PARKS<br />

DISNEYLAND PARK PARIS<br />

The largest resort in Europa by surface area and<br />

visitor numbers is Disneyland and stands as a synonym<br />

for a theme park. There’s not a second park that<br />

brings such a sparkle into children’s eyes as far as fantasy,<br />

adventure, and experience goes. The Resort with<br />

its two parks, huge hotels and varied entertainment<br />

possibilities each evening, is an individual holiday<br />

destination, and in particular a universe for children.<br />

There’s no other park that contains such strong trademarks<br />

as Mickey Mouse, Cars & Co as Disneyland. ■<br />

EFTELING<br />

The earlier fairytale park has developed into a high<br />

value theme park over the past decades with many<br />

breathtaking ride attractions, which mostly do not exist<br />

anywhere else. However the classic fairytale has never<br />

been lost sight of, in fact quite the opposite. The fairytales<br />

here often experience an interactive renaissance<br />

that not only fascinates children. Connected up with<br />

the park owned hotels and the huge overnight accommodation<br />

resort, Efteling offers the perfect conditions<br />

for the multi-day visitor.<br />

HANSA-PARK<br />

The Hansa-<strong>Park</strong> is located directly on the Baltic Sea<br />

coast. This fact alone makes it something special.<br />

However optically the park also has unique characteristics:<br />

the theme areas are dedicated to the history of<br />

the Hanse. Enriched with interesting attractions, the<br />

park offers young thrill seekers enough large attractions,<br />

for example the coaster “Fluch von Novgorod”,<br />

as well family experiences. The beautifully growing nature<br />

and the breathtaking view of the Sea make Hansa-<br />

<strong>Park</strong> a real pearl in the theme park landscape. ■<br />

LEGOLAND DEUTSCHLAND<br />

The German Legoland is a success<br />

model, which over the<br />

past years in particular was continually<br />

extended in the direction of<br />

a multi-day resort. In the meanwhile<br />

there are almost 1,000 beds<br />

– more than in any other Legoland<br />

worldwide. The focus naturally is<br />

on the park where there is not only the obligatory Miniland<br />

made of hundreds of thousands of Lego bricks,<br />

but also a number of unique attractions for Lego,<br />

among them for example the “Flying Ninjago” from<br />

Gerstlauer. The secret of the success of all Legoland<br />

parks worldwide however is the intergenerational fascination<br />

for the small colourful plastic bricks that are<br />

loved by both children and their parents alike. ■<br />

PLOPSALAND DE PANNE<br />

The Belgian Meli-<br />

<strong>Park</strong>, operated by<br />

honey producer Florizoone<br />

between 1936<br />

and 1999, already had<br />

a bee-theme in those<br />

days. However with the<br />

takeover by the Belgian<br />

company Studio 100, the very popular honeybee<br />

Maya found a permanent and “real” home here a few<br />

years later. Additionally the Plopsa Group extended its<br />

home-park consistently, in order to present other well<br />

known comic characters such as the little Viking<br />

Wickie. In addition to over 30 ride attractions, the first<br />

class theming that is attuned to popular European kiddie<br />

series can really be considered as remarkable. ■<br />

EUROPE’S BEST WATER PARKS<br />

SIAM PARK<br />

It is one of the most popular<br />

tourist attractions on Canary<br />

Island’s Tenerife – not only due<br />

to its large number of slide<br />

varieties, but also because the<br />

water park that opened in<br />

2008 has an unusual Thai theming,<br />

as the name suggests.<br />

Added to that, all the slides are<br />

so well integrated into the<br />

craggy terrain, so that there<br />

was no need for any of the<br />

often obligatory steel slide towers. Whilst a number of<br />

the slides travel through pools occupied by sea<br />

dwellers – such as through a shark pool – the 18.5 hectare<br />

sized Siam <strong>Park</strong> also has the longest Lazy River<br />

and a wave pool with the highest artificial breakers.<br />

And last but not least, due to exemplary water management,<br />

it is the first company in Europe that carries<br />

the prestigious title “Green Water <strong>Park</strong>”.<br />

■<br />

COSTA CARIBE<br />

The half Caribbean half Sesame Street designed<br />

water park at the PortAventura Resort was opened<br />

in 2002, and in 2013 was generously extended to twice<br />

the size. Now available are 16 water slides from Pro-<br />

Slide, a large wave pool, a children’s bathing area that<br />

is just as large, and a huge relaxation lagoon area.<br />

Costa Caribe also promises all thrill-seekers as well as<br />

all children many refreshing moments under the<br />

Spanish sun.<br />

There is not<br />

only the 31 metres<br />

highest<br />

water slide in Europe, but also many set pieces from<br />

Sesame Street, which has existed in the neighbouring<br />

theme park since 2011. Four park-owned theme hotels<br />

round off the portfolio perfectly.<br />

a number of restaurants and bars, and a huge<br />

in the countless suites, in simple tents, or simply<br />

on the loungers on the sandy beach. There is aroundthe-clock<br />

AQUA FANTASY<br />

Most probably the most beautiful holiday resort in<br />

Turkey is situated directly on Mediterranean near<br />

Izmir, and offers a gently<br />

sloping sandy beach<br />

with bars, a number of<br />

(indoor) pools, and<br />

2,500 beds. The heart of<br />

the large and most successful<br />

all-inclusive-resort<br />

water park opened in<br />

2000, which in those<br />

EUROPE’S BEST NEW RIDES 2014<br />

HELIX<br />

Europe’s most varied<br />

coaster opened<br />

this year at the<br />

Swedish theme park<br />

Liseberg. “Helix” not<br />

only has seven completely<br />

different inversions,<br />

but also two<br />

launch sections, a track difference of 51 metres, and<br />

a track length of an unbelievable 1,300 metres. Additionally<br />

the ride experience from Mack Rides plays<br />

through without any pause for breath on a green hill in<br />

the middle of Göteborg, and there’s nowhere in the<br />

park that the track course is completely visible. This<br />

leads to many surprising moments – for both the<br />

passengers as well as park visitors.<br />

■<br />

ARTHUR<br />

The longest part of the 505<br />

metres track course of<br />

“Arthur” runs under the 16 metres<br />

high dome of “Arthur – Im Königreich<br />

world’s first Inverted Powered<br />

Coaster, in other words a coaster<br />

with permanent current collector with hanging cars<br />

that can even rotate horizontally. Simultaneously the<br />

construction is a type of Darkride with skillful theming<br />

and a brilliant onboard-sound system with a perfectly<br />

coordinated movement sequence. Children can partake<br />

in the four-minute coaster experience already<br />

from a height of 100 centimetres.<br />

the art” ride in every respect with its<br />

new water attraction “Chiapas”. Almost<br />

all components are prototypes and innovations<br />

from Intamin, for example<br />

the switch-system that brings the boats<br />

from one water canal to the other at<br />

lightning speed. Additionally the new<br />

construction has been themed in detail<br />

fittingly to the Mexican theme area<br />

where it has been wonderfully integrated<br />

– as is usual for Phantasialand. ■<br />

NEFESKESEN<br />

The first large Turkish coaster is<br />

simultaneously a breathtaking<br />

and top class construction. The<br />

Launch Coaster from Intamin catapults<br />

its ride guests 45 metres into the<br />

skies directly after the kick-start. The<br />

immediately following vertical drop is<br />

even more exciting because the attractive “Top Hat”<br />

element has been erected over a cliff of an earlier<br />

quarry. This unique location goes for all of Vialand<br />

<strong>Park</strong>, opened last year: the first modern theme park in<br />

Turkey that to be located on an Istanbul hill. With its<br />

new 660 metres long and 110 kilometres per hour<br />

coaster, it can already be seen from far away. ■<br />

EUROPE’S BEST STEEL COASTERS<br />

SHAMBHALA<br />

The coaster from B&M that opened in 2012, has a track<br />

difference of 78 metres and is not only the highest in Europe<br />

but continues to be the best. In actual fact it’s not only the height<br />

that speaks for “Shambhala”, but also the consistently stringed<br />

together parabola formed hills, which paired with the usual B&M<br />

smooth course characteristics, also offers breathtaking airtime.<br />

The 1,564 metres long airtime orgy is only interrupted by an overbanked<br />

turnaround in the form of a standing eight, and the<br />

nonetheless breathtaking view of the Mediterranean nearby. ■<br />

EXPEDITION GEFORCE<br />

Voted right to the top again this<br />

year is the coaster that already<br />

opened in 2001 from Intamin. The<br />

location of the 52 metres high and<br />

over 1,200 metres long “Expedition<br />

GeForce” is Holiday <strong>Park</strong>. In addition to its smooth ride<br />

characteristics thanks to the perfectly worked bends<br />

and a varied layout with parabola hills, airtime hills, and<br />

steep curves, the first drop offers an 80° steep descent<br />

with simultaneous 90° rotation of the track axis. ■<br />

thrills the European Star Award


ORKANEN<br />

There has been quite a row of the so-called Family<br />

Suspended Coasters realized by Vekoma. However<br />

the customised example at Denmark’s Fårup<br />

Sommerland really is something despite its manageable<br />

track length of 453 metres, and it was considered<br />

to be one of the best steel coasters in Europe this year.<br />

It offers a number of airtime sequences at a continuous<br />

high pace, several “near misses”, a spectacular<br />

underwater tunnel, and a track course leading mostly<br />

over the water surface.<br />

■<br />

OZIRIS<br />

The spectacular Inverted Coaster “Oz-<br />

Iris” at Parc Astérix has justifiably been<br />

voted to a top position once again. The construction<br />

not only has a very attractive track<br />

course and an underwater tunnel, but the complete<br />

tracks are – as is usual for B&M – is perfectly constructed.<br />

The result is 35 metres of height and 1,030<br />

metres of lengthy first class riding pleasure. ■<br />

BLUE FIRE<br />

The first Looping Coaster of their own production<br />

was erected by the Mack family in 2009 in its own<br />

theme park – and with that set new standards that are<br />

of interest to many parks. The result is that there are<br />

now a number of constructions of this type, some even<br />

as a 1:1 copy. The 1,056 metre long and 38 metre high<br />

“blue fire” at Europa-<strong>Park</strong> offers an intensive experience,<br />

and simultaneously very high ride comfort. ■<br />

EUROPEAN STAR AWARD 2014<br />

EUROPE’S BEST WOODEN COASTERS<br />

COLOSSOS<br />

Since the beginning of our<br />

awards, “Colossos” and<br />

“Balder” have been in a neckand-neck<br />

race. This year<br />

Heide-<strong>Park</strong>’s gigantic coaster is<br />

well in the lead again. Europe’s highest wooden coaster<br />

captivates with perfectly designed parabola formed<br />

hills resulting in maximum airtime. “Colossos” was<br />

opened in 2001 and its 52 metre high and 1,344 metre<br />

long ride offers accelerations from +4.5 g to -1.5 g. ■<br />

BALDER<br />

The special characteristics<br />

of both<br />

coasters “Balder” and<br />

“Colossos” is the fact<br />

that the wooden<br />

tracks of both constructions<br />

were prefabricated<br />

exactly<br />

according to calculations per CNC-milling, and with<br />

that make possible an unusually and relatively smooth<br />

ride experience for wooden coasters. The 1,070<br />

metres long wooden coaster at Sweden’s Liseberg has<br />

been erected on relatively compact grounds, however<br />

without it being deprived of abundant airtime<br />

moments. There are even many “near misses” whilst<br />

travelling through its own wooden structure. ■<br />

thrills the European Star Award


TWISTER<br />

The fact that wooden coasters don't<br />

always have to be big in order to<br />

offer fun is proved impressively by the<br />

2011 opened "Twister" at Gröna Lund<br />

in Sweden. Airtime, lateral forces, crazy curves and<br />

near-misses, as well as exciting turns make this Hybrid<br />

Coaster (wooden tracks on steel supports) from The<br />

Gravity Group absolutely unique.<br />

■<br />

JORIS EN DE DRAAK<br />

This wooden coaster is both a<br />

very stately and rare construction,<br />

as in comparison to the USA<br />

there are very few Racing Coasters<br />

in Europe. One of these rare<br />

examples is at the same time a<br />

large-scale structure, as both<br />

courses of “Joris en de Draak” from<br />

Great Coasters are 720 metres<br />

long and 22 metres high. Additionally<br />

the tracks don’t always run parallel<br />

to one another, so that in this<br />

respect one could even talk of a<br />

Duelling Coaster. Since the<br />

opening in 2011, the ride offers a<br />

whole lot of fun at Efteling in the<br />

Netherlands.<br />

■<br />

MAMMUT<br />

The fact that theme parks with well under one million<br />

visitors can annually can erect and operate a very convincing<br />

wooden coaster has been proved by the very likeable<br />

Erlebnispark Tripsdrill. The 860 metres long and 30 metres<br />

high “Mammut” from Cordes Coasters has been spoiling<br />

park guests since 2008 with distinctive drops, sharp curves<br />

and great airtime sections. Additionally there are also the sophisticated<br />

theming and a surprising Darkride sequence. ■<br />

EUROPEAN STAR AWARD 2014<br />

EUROPE’S BEST WATER RIDES<br />

DIVERTICAL<br />

Avery unusual interpretation of a<br />

Water Coaster is located at<br />

Italy’s Mirabilandia. This successful<br />

combination of coaster and<br />

water attraction by the name of “Di-<br />

Vertical” from Intamin begins with<br />

a 55 metres high vertical lift. This is<br />

followed by a deep drop and a<br />

short dip into the cool wet, before<br />

the speedy coaster sequence is<br />

reached. As a finale there is more<br />

water, this time however considerably<br />

more refreshing. The total<br />

length of this attraction is 800<br />

metres (550 metres of the length<br />

are coaster tracks).<br />

■<br />

POSEIDON<br />

The attraction at Europa-<strong>Park</strong> is also a so-called<br />

Water Coaster as it links together real roller coaster<br />

elements with the advantages of a refreshing water<br />

attraction. Two lifts have been built into the 836 metres<br />

long and 23 metres high “Poseidon” from Mack Rides.<br />

Each is followed by a coaster sequence with a subsequent<br />

water sequence. The final drop has a built in<br />

intensive airtime hill. Additionally, the water coaster<br />

has been successfully integrated into the Greek<br />

theme area and is also an optical pleasure. ■<br />

thrills the European Star Award


RIVER QUEST<br />

The perhaps highest, but definitely<br />

most unusual Rapid Ride worldwide<br />

can be experienced at Phantasialand.<br />

Due to little space available, the<br />

340 m long course is located on a number<br />

of levels. The 20 m high vertical lift is followed by a<br />

number of drops – the largest is 11 m deep! A whirlpool,<br />

and even a freefall sequence – an enormous torrent of<br />

water rips the round boats downwards – make "River-<br />

Quest" from Hafema an innovative and unique Rafting. ■<br />

VALHALLA<br />

The indoor water ride at<br />

Blackpool Pleasure Beach<br />

has a length of 610 metres,<br />

and a height difference of 18<br />

metres. However it’s the incomparable<br />

overall concept<br />

(Design from Sarner; effects<br />

from Technifex), that makes<br />

the “Valhalla” from Intamin<br />

something very special: the<br />

elaborate design, the grandiose<br />

effects, the variations in<br />

temperature of – 20° to + 40°<br />

Celsius, and – typical England<br />

– the unbelievable degree of<br />

wetness, are the outstanding<br />

characteristics.<br />

■<br />

PINGUINE! ABENTEUER<br />

With the new 2013 opened Sea<br />

Life Abenteuer <strong>Park</strong>, the Merlin<br />

Entertainments Group has<br />

brought another attractive product<br />

into its portfolio: the extension of the<br />

popular SeaLife aquarium to an integral<br />

theme park experience. And the main attraction<br />

at the first park of this type is the water attraction “Pinguine!<br />

Abenteuer Antarktis” from abc rides. Built into<br />

the 250 metres long course there are a 14 metres high<br />

drop and a ride through a penguin habitat – a very rare<br />

combination in Europe.<br />

EUROPE’S BEST DARK RIDES<br />

TWILIGHT TOWER OF TERROR<br />

The Freefall attraction at Disney Studios <strong>Park</strong> Paris has been chosen as<br />

the best Darkride in Europe for the third time. Themed Freefall Towers<br />

are extremely rare – especially when they as high as this one. The enormous<br />

amount of ride fun with multiple falls is not for the faint-hearted, but in<br />

this case everything simply fits correctly – even the waiting area is part of<br />

the experience. The excellent overall design, the fantastic inside architecture<br />

and the perfectly coordinated sequences make the 55.8 metre high<br />

“Tower of Terror” with a lift system from Otis into a unique attraction. ■<br />

RAVING RABBIDS<br />

An unusual update of an already existing<br />

attraction celebrated its reopening this<br />

year: based on the video game “The Raving<br />

Rabbids” from the French firm Ubisoft. Jora-<br />

Vision developed a completely new, completely<br />

wild and crazy experience with five<br />

scenes, three-dimensional full HD-technology,<br />

special effects and animatronics. ■<br />

thrills the European Star Award


VAN HELSING’S FACTORY<br />

It’s very seldom that an indoor coaster is convincing from beginning to<br />

end. However the situation is quite different in the case of “Van Helsing’s<br />

Factory” from Gerstlauer: starting with the queuing area over the station,<br />

the ride itself right up to the exit, Movie <strong>Park</strong> Germany has managed to<br />

create a consistent overall total experience, even though the attraction<br />

itself is merely 400 metres long and has a maximum height of 7.7 metres<br />

with two lifts.<br />

■<br />

DROOMVLUCHT<br />

The indoor fairytale attraction that scheduled to<br />

open in 1992 (the year when Disneyland Paris<br />

started) was ready in 1993. The ride is enjoyed in open<br />

suspended gondolas that carry passengers through<br />

five different scenes. The 425 metre long ride taking<br />

six minutes was realised under the direction of<br />

Efteling. Playing an essential role was also the Trans<br />

Lift firm which built the transport system with hanging<br />

and rotating gondolas. The highlight is the coasterstyle<br />

spiral, which conquers a height difference of 13<br />

metres. The attraction was completely worked over for<br />

the 2013 season.<br />

■<br />

KNIGHTS RIDES TOWER<br />

Last year there was a world première<br />

at the Austrian Fantasiana Erlebnispark<br />

Strasswalchen. For the first<br />

time a number of effects were combined<br />

with each other in the indoor Freefall<br />

Tower from abc rides, which<br />

opened in 2013: before the fall takes<br />

place from a 16 metres height, the 10-<br />

seat “Knights Ride” gondola stops on various levels<br />

where animatronics and video projectors present mystic<br />

elements. The freefall also has two inbuilt features,<br />

which are generally known from 3D-cinemas – achieved<br />

by way of strips of rubber around the foot area,<br />

riding guests have the experience of spiders climbing<br />

up their legs, as well as the feeling that a thorn is<br />

“boring” into their backs.<br />

EUROPE’S BEST FAMILY RIDES<br />

ANGKOR<br />

Europe’s longest battle boat ride from Mack Rides opened this year:<br />

“Angkor: Adventure in the Lost Kingdom”. The 323 metres long water<br />

canal winds and meanders through the imposing and artificial temple<br />

landscape of Cambodia. It takes a whole ten minutes for to enjoy the very<br />

wet adventure at the Spanish PortAventura Resort that is operated without<br />

any age restrictions whatsoever – in other words a real family ride. ■<br />

DIE SCHLANGE VON MIDGARD<br />

This attraction is the perfect “beginner”<br />

coaster for future coaster fans for whom<br />

Hansa-<strong>Park</strong> naturally also offers a lot of<br />

variety right next door. However the nine metre high and<br />

200 metre long “Schlange von Midgard” is convincing<br />

with a lively layout, good ride characteristics and great<br />

theming. There is even an indoor sequence with lift before<br />

the ride proceeds into the outdoor area offering a<br />

number of thoroughly speedy drops and curves over a<br />

water surface. All park guests with a minimum height<br />

of one metre may partake of the ride.<br />

DE GROTE GOLF<br />

Wickie the Viking has moved into Plopsaland De Panne and at the same<br />

time also brought along a complete Viking village together with two<br />

attractions. “De Grote Golf” is a 40-seat “Disk’O Coaster” from Zamperla that<br />

has been thematically embedded into a rock massif and at the same time<br />

marks the entrance to the new “Wickie Land”. The waiting area of the 92.5<br />

metres long and up to 15.5 metres high comfortably running ride has also<br />

been successfully designed.<br />

■<br />

MAMMUT TREE<br />

It is the nightmare of every<br />

skier: the crash of a ski lift<br />

gondola. This however is<br />

exactly what visitors can be<br />

experienced at the Switzerland’s<br />

Connyland as though<br />

it were real. And if there<br />

would have been a category<br />

“Family-friendliest<br />

Thrill Rides”, the new ride<br />

construction called “Mammut<br />

Tree” from Swiss Rides<br />

would have won hands<br />

down, as the attraction is<br />

the perfect combination of<br />

cable railway and breathtaking special effects.<br />

The 16-seat gondola is brought to a controlled<br />

crash in complete darkness, before returning again to<br />

the lower station – a really innovative ride concept. ■<br />

ALLIGATOR ISLAND<br />

The theme park OK Corral in the south of France<br />

opened a “Jet Ski” attraction this season from<br />

Zierer, which is most probably the most beautifully<br />

themed of its type. Not only are there nine gondolas for<br />

two persons each, designed as alligators, but at the<br />

edge of the major ride lurks a fine specimen of the<br />

species that appears to be only waiting for one of the<br />

other passenger to be thrown off.<br />

EUROPE’S BEST ATTRACTIONS<br />

VERTIGO<br />

The“Vertigo”, which opened at Denmark’s Tivoli in 2009, is one<br />

of the most unusual rides ever. The ride that at first glance<br />

appears to be one of the current and popular “Propeller” major<br />

rides produced by various manufacturers actually turns out to be<br />

at second glance an innovative attraction, on which ride guests<br />

can influence the ride sequence with two joysticks. In the case of<br />

the 37 metres high “Flying Fury” (Technical <strong>Park</strong> term), one of four<br />

passengers per gondola determines just how intensively the flight<br />

manoeuvre should be experienced – at up to an impressive 100<br />

kilometres per hour and with g-forces of up to 5.2 g. ■<br />

TALOCAN<br />

The “Top Spin” is one of the biggest sales hits for manufacturer Huss <strong>Park</strong><br />

Attractions, located in Bremen. The 18 metre high suspended-version can<br />

be met up with at all the parks in the world, but it’s particularly the 2007 erected<br />

“Suspended Top Spin” at Phantasialand that imparts a great and exciting<br />

ride feeling due to its intensive theming for all the senses: water and fire effects,<br />

and a setting that half encloses the ride is simply impressive.<br />

■<br />

thrills the European Star Award


FLYING NINJAGO<br />

The ride experience of<br />

the “SkyFly” attraction<br />

from Gerstlauer is simply<br />

innovative. The wind current<br />

is quite enough to be<br />

used cleverly by passengers<br />

to cause a number<br />

of inversions with a huge<br />

sail – as many as one<br />

wants. Every passenger<br />

can decide just how thrillheavy<br />

the ride experience<br />

should be. The first<br />

attraction from this construction<br />

series is located<br />

at Legoland Deutschland.<br />

■<br />

SLEDGE HAMMER<br />

It was one of the world’s first<br />

and Europe’s first “Giant<br />

Frisbee” from Huss <strong>Park</strong> Attractions,<br />

when it went into<br />

operation in the 2004 season<br />

at Belgian’s Bobbejaanland.<br />

And with an outward swing to<br />

the side of 120° – in the case<br />

of a normal “Frisbee” it was generally<br />

90° – a maximum flight<br />

height of 42 metres and a<br />

speed of up to 110 kilometres<br />

per hour, the ride experience<br />

was at that time still novel. A<br />

ride on such an attraction remains<br />

spectacular even these<br />

days.<br />

■<br />

SYNKOPE<br />

The manufacturer Mondial also offers such a large<br />

swing construction with a rotating gondola. “Syn-<br />

Kope” has been whirling passengers into the lofty<br />

heights at the Spanish theme park Terra Mitíca since<br />

2004. This attraction has a ride height of 35 metres and<br />

reaches speeds of up to 90 kilometres per hour. ■<br />

KINNAREE<br />

Europe’s best water park also contains<br />

Europe’s best water slide, as this year the<br />

novelty “Kinnaree” stands right at the top for<br />

the first time. Manufacturer of this combination<br />

slide from the year 2012 is the Canadian company<br />

ProSlide. This attraction that combines<br />

various slide types offers a funnel slide, a sidewinder<br />

(or rather the function of a steep curve as on a<br />

coaster), and a number of tunnel sequences on a 200<br />

metre length. Large four-passenger rafts provide for an<br />

adequate capacity and disorientating spins on its own<br />

axis. Despite its respectable size it could be perfectly<br />

integrated into the sloping terrain, as with all other<br />

constructions at Siam <strong>Park</strong>.<br />

LE KING COBRA<br />

The colourful and up until now unrivalled<br />

“King Cobra” water slide<br />

from Polin attained first place twice,<br />

but was narrowly beaten this year.<br />

However it still reached a substantial<br />

second place.<br />

The construction that<br />

was erected in 2012 at<br />

the French Aqualand<br />

Fréjus <strong>Park</strong> was the very<br />

first of quite a number of<br />

structurally identical examples<br />

produced. It initially<br />

offers water park<br />

visitors a type of figure-<br />

8-sequence that is partly<br />

roofed over before it<br />

flows into an eight metre<br />

deep and surprising<br />

airtime drop. A sidewinder element awaits the passengers,<br />

which is recreated as a snake head that sprays<br />

water onto bathing guests. It features two side by side,<br />

mirrored, courses that unexpectedly bring guests<br />

together in the final sidewinder element.<br />

FAMILY RATTLER<br />

The combination of “Mega Tubes” in three different<br />

four-person round “Mega Tubes” in which riders rise in<br />

a Halfpipe style on both sides a number of times, have<br />

a diameter of up to five metres. A 134 metres high<br />

the Georgian city of Anaklia, and is part of the water<br />

park called Aqua-Lazika.<br />

HIGH FLY<br />

Avery unusual Bodyslide went into operation<br />

at the Galaxy slide world that<br />

opened in 2007 at Therme Erding: the<br />

“High Fly” from Wiegand-Maelzer.<br />

Viewed from the side it appears similar<br />

to a ski jump, however in this case<br />

there is no use of skis, but lying down<br />

in a bathing costume. The start height<br />

is a considerable 12 metres, and the<br />

total length is 32 metres. Due to the<br />

free flight there are strong restrictions:<br />

only bathing guests from 15 years of<br />

age and with a weight of between 50 and 85 kilos are<br />

allowed to measure their flight.<br />

■<br />

SUPER COMBO<br />

first five placing<br />

make it very clear<br />

what is the current<br />

trend: the combination<br />

of various slide<br />

styles to bring about<br />

a new and unique experience. And the 21 metres<br />

high “Super Combo” from Polin at the Turkish water<br />

park Aqua Fantasy is no exception. It unites four elements<br />

that have never existed in this combination before:<br />

a pipe slide, a bowl-sequence, an uphill-slide and<br />

a new type of sphere. These completely varied elements<br />

are experienced in two-seat rubber tubes. ■<br />

Two European coaster<br />

constructions in Paris in the<br />

18 th century<br />

Roller Coaster History from<br />

The history of this attraction goes back to Saint<br />

Petersburg in the 17 th century, when in wintertime<br />

the local population built huge wooden scaffolding<br />

with a sloping ramps. Water was poured<br />

over the slopes and it would freeze, and the Saint<br />

Petersburg residents would slide down over them.<br />

True to the motto “faster, higher, larger”, familiar<br />

right up to our current day, these constructions<br />

started to grow increasingly taller even way back<br />

then. Some were up to 21 metres tall, and from this<br />

perilous height, thrill seekers sped down the icy<br />

slope.<br />

During the Napoleonic Wars, French soldiers saw<br />

these unfamiliar constructions and took them home<br />

to France, where the first constructions erected<br />

were named “Montagnes Russes” (translation:<br />

“Russian Mountains”) after their origin.<br />

A particularly beautiful construction was the “Promenade<br />

Aerienne”, with the attraction being integrated<br />

into the architecture of the building and already<br />

featured the first curves. This example shows<br />

that coasters are an architectural ride experience,<br />

and that architecture can be experienced as an<br />

immediate body sensation; something that cannot<br />

be felt elsewhere, with the exception perhaps of lifts<br />

and escalators, which are also fixtures in fairground<br />

attractions.<br />

102


a Scientific Perspective<br />

This is only one lineage of the modern roller coaster<br />

however. Another comes from North America,<br />

where the “Mauch Chunk Switchback Railway” is<br />

the forefather. In Pennsylvania, gravity was used to<br />

transport coal to the valley from a coal mine. Coal<br />

was loaded at the top of the hill and the little wagons<br />

simply rolled down. Wagons in the valley were<br />

towed back up the hill again by donkeys. Upon<br />

reaching the top of the hill, the donkeys were<br />

placed without further ado into some of the wagons<br />

and sent back down the hill. On perceiving that the<br />

donkeys actually enjoyed the downhill ride, the<br />

workers – never at a loss for ideas – thought that<br />

might be fun for them as well, and so also sat in the<br />

wagons and rode down the hill! Already a few years<br />

later, this construction was used for transporting<br />

coal in the mornings only, and carried passengers<br />

from throughout the entire region in the afternoons.<br />

All roller coasters, from the first stationary wooden<br />

coaster right up to the modern Looping, Launch<br />

and Hyper coasters, derived from these two ancestors.<br />

What can be seen in both these lineages, from<br />

Russia and the USA, is actually quite typical of<br />

every amusement attraction. They are technical<br />

installations created to provide fun. Originally, many<br />

attractions like these are technical installations that<br />

have been removed from their industrial production<br />

context to produce non-industrious, intangible,<br />

plain good thrills.<br />

In central Europe it<br />

was the transportable coasters<br />

from 1909 that caused a furore:<br />

the pioneer and carousel king<br />

Hugo Haase travelled with a<br />

number of structurally identical<br />

constructions to the American<br />

Roller Coasters with<br />

elaborate theming very soon<br />

made their appearances in<br />

theme parks, often named as<br />

"Gebirgs-Szeneriebahnen";<br />

here earlier examples from 1913:<br />

the Luna-<strong>Park</strong> am Halensee<br />

(Berlin) and the Lunapark in<br />

Leipzig-Wahren (right)<br />

There are two types of thrilled feelings aroused by<br />

a roller coaster; firstly a bodily or physical thrill, and<br />

secondly a psychological one. Physical thrill is<br />

stimulated by directly addressing the body. The<br />

basic element of a roller coaster is the up and down<br />

movement. This comprises two essential construction<br />

elements, one of them creating the experience<br />

of negative g-forces. The train travels up a hill, and<br />

the moment it crests over the top of the hill and<br />

drops down, the passengers are briefly catapulted<br />

upwards. They seem to float out of their seats, experiencing<br />

negative g-forces, or weightlessness;<br />

“airtime” as this effect is called in official, 'roller<br />

coaster language'.<br />

104


By contrast, positive g-forces are experiences<br />

when the train travels through a valley, travels up<br />

again or into a loop. At this very point of the ride<br />

passengers are subjected to a the multiplying of<br />

their body weight. This lasts only for some seconds<br />

however, before airtime occurs once again. As a result<br />

a coaster ride is a kind of choreography, taking<br />

the body to its limits and thus<br />

creating a profound physical<br />

experience for passengers<br />

at the same time. This enhancement<br />

of the body's<br />

normal experience is one of<br />

the reasons why roller coasters<br />

have boomed during the<br />

last few years.<br />

In addition, a roller coaster<br />

ride also appeals to the psyche.<br />

Already during the runup<br />

to a coaster ride, the<br />

excitement builds up. Even<br />

days in advance, excitement grows and grows, and<br />

increasingly so with every step prospective passengers<br />

take as they approach the construction on<br />

the 'big day'. Eventually they find themselves standing<br />

in the queue – another important element for the<br />

roller coaster experience, as on the one hand they<br />

hear the screams, which increase excitement yet<br />

Heinrich Mack from<br />

Waldkirch was very soon<br />

strongly involved in the<br />

construction of transportable<br />

track attractions (all of wood):<br />

the Bob Sleigh coaster (1952<br />

upper left), the Monorail coaster<br />

(1955 up left) and the “Turmbahn”<br />

with a spiral lift (1921, left)<br />

Popular at the beginning<br />

of the 20 th century were also the<br />

multi-month appearances of<br />

exhibitions for which very often<br />

a complete theme park was<br />

erected; here the British Empire<br />

Exhibition in Wembley in 1924<br />

105


The oldest still operating<br />

coaster in Europe is the "Rutschebanen"<br />

at Tivoli – a classic<br />

Gebirgs-Szeneriebahn from the<br />

year 1914<br />

The "Big Dipper" has been<br />

enjoyed by all visitors at Blackpool<br />

Pleasure Beach since 1923<br />

The "Hullámvasút" has<br />

been operated since 1926 at Budapest<br />

Zoo (earlier Vidámpark)<br />

again, and on the other hand, they see the safely<br />

disembarking passengers, which inspires confidence<br />

that the infernal ride will end well! Of course,<br />

a ride on a roller coaster is also a test of courage,<br />

yet it is much more than just that. Those who have<br />

taken a ride on a roller coaster know the two ideal<br />

types of riders; those holding tight and closing their<br />

eyes and those, more often than not sitting directly<br />

next to them, shooting their arms up in delight.<br />

As different as these manifestations are – the introverted<br />

holding fast, the extroverted screaming and<br />

arm-waving with delight – both types of riders have<br />

the same ride experience, and are focused on<br />

thrills. Psychologists distinguish between 'ocnophils',<br />

that is to say 'lovers of thrills' and philobats,<br />

or those erring towards hesitation, if one will. According<br />

to Michael Balint, both types follow different<br />

strategies to reach the same goal; namely to be<br />

at 'one with the world'. For him, as an advocate of<br />

Sigmund Freud’s theses, the world is represented<br />

by the mother’s breast. It is characteristic of lovers<br />

of thrills that when breast-fed they spat out their<br />

mother’s breast and went back to it again in order<br />

to make sure of 'being one with it' through this<br />

primary interaction. Lovers of hesitation, on the<br />

other hand, clung to the breast and did not want to<br />

let it go, in order not to give up this pleasant bonding<br />

experience.<br />

This psychological typology can easily be applied<br />

also to other everyday phenomena, such as horror<br />

films. Some people cannot watch and keep their<br />

eyes closed, while others expose themselves to<br />

these impressions seemingly full of self-confidence.<br />

These films are often called thrillers or<br />

psychological thrillers, featuring the term Balint<br />

uses for this phenomenon, namely thrill. Thus the<br />

term “thrill rides” is highly appropriate for a roller<br />

coaster.<br />

106


But why is it attractive to expose oneself to thrill or<br />

fear? Human beings are one of the few creatures<br />

with a reflective self-awareness, which has the<br />

advantage that they can form an opinion of themselves<br />

and their environment. The price for this ability<br />

is the awareness of their own vulnerability and<br />

mortality. These are two elementary anthropological<br />

anxieties, mythologically adapted as the biblical<br />

'expulsion from Paradise'. Human beings learn<br />

that they are mortal. However, death is an experience<br />

that cannot be grasped cognitively as nobody<br />

can imagine their own death. This thought is so<br />

painful that human beings try to avoid it. These anxieties<br />

are joined by everyday worries. Will everything<br />

work out with my job? Will there be problems<br />

in my relationship? What about money? Anxieties<br />

can have physical effects that can cause further<br />

worries.<br />

The special feature of the unique medium, roller<br />

coaster, is its ability to make one forget all these<br />

worries by providing a thrill. At the point of maximum<br />

thrill, all existential worries are forgotten. This<br />

experience is combined with a substantial enhancement<br />

of bodily experience, providing for a<br />

short-term unity of body and mind. Passengers<br />

experience a state beyond daily life; it<br />

is a train journey to Paradise. This way,<br />

roller coasters have an important function;<br />

they expose humans to an immediacy<br />

they rarely experience in<br />

daily life, but which is necessary to experience<br />

reality in an unreserved way.<br />

For the duration of a roller coaster ride,<br />

humans are natural beings. Thus the<br />

roller coaster is a good example for a<br />

special feature of human culture,<br />

which on the one hand is based on removing<br />

human beings from their naturalness, thus<br />

creating culture. At the same time however, human<br />

beings have to experience their naturalness to feel<br />

themselves as vital beings. In this way, culture provides<br />

gates to a world beyond daily life; it creates<br />

wormholes to the extraordinary.<br />

This feat makes the roller coaster a cult object of<br />

popular culture, where this function is used as a<br />

symbol, from pulp fiction series, such as John Sinclair<br />

with the meaningful title “Rollercoaster into the<br />

Afterlife”, biographies such as “Das Leben ist eine<br />

Achterbahn” (“Life is a Rollercoaster”) by Martin<br />

Semmelrogge, or guide books on raising children<br />

The first attempts to<br />

turn passengers upside down<br />

were already taking place since<br />

the middle of the 19 th century<br />

(see poster from London);<br />

looping constructions called<br />

"Flip Flap Coaster" were being<br />

erected from 1900 in the USA<br />

(photo above in Atlantic City,<br />

photo under in Brooklyn)<br />

The double coaster by the name<br />

of "Loop-the-Loop" was erected on Coney<br />

Island in 1901, and already had elliptical<br />

steel loops<br />

Roller coaster post<br />

cards from showman and park<br />

owner Hugo Haase<br />

with the title “Rollercoaster to the First Milk Tooth” to<br />

serious scientific literature, such as the guide book<br />

on depressions called “Roller Coaster of Sensations”.<br />

Naturally, there are a high number of advertising<br />

photos featuring roller coasters in the background<br />

and, of course, roller coasters also appear<br />

in essential films scenes; for example most notably<br />

in the film “Rollercoaster” with George Segal and<br />

Richard Widmark. This pop cultural inclusion is<br />

rounded off by pop music ranging from characteristically<br />

German Schlager, as well as pop and rock<br />

music (for example by Rosenstolz or Die toten<br />

Hosen) to internationally successful songs, not to<br />

forget the probably best known title “Life is a Roller<br />

Coaster” by Ronan Keating.<br />

However, the metaphor of the roller coaster for<br />

human life is far more than mere symbolism, as the<br />

coaster ride itself makes passengers experience<br />

human life sensually. This is wonderful to see in<br />

modern Launch Coasters, where the train is<br />

launched from the dark station by a linear drive, and<br />

travels on through different inversion elements after<br />

the first hill. Symbolically interpreted, this means<br />

that human beings are launched from the uterus<br />

into life, the first hill is childhood, the first drop<br />

puberty, from where the turbulent journey goes on<br />

to first love, school-leaving, family, divorce, unemployment,<br />

new job, up to a smooth braking into<br />

retirement. However, many roller coaster rides end<br />

just as abruptly as real life.<br />

<strong>Park</strong> mentions: 23,520 /<br />

here; the numbers diverge from<br />

one posting<br />

<strong>Park</strong>s and <strong>Social</strong> <strong>Media</strong><br />

We wish to introduce the first results of our<br />

theme park monitoring. These results will<br />

convey how relevant social media is for this branch.<br />

Additionally we hope that it may well inspire you to<br />

further ideas and suggestions, for further analysis.<br />

We have been observing the discussion volume on<br />

the web with our tool "Radarly" since the middle of<br />

April 2014, in respect of the following theme parks:<br />

Europa-<strong>Park</strong>, Phantasialand, Tripsdrill, Movie <strong>Park</strong><br />

Germany, Heide-<strong>Park</strong>, Legoland Deutschland,<br />

Hansa-<strong>Park</strong>, Belantis, and Holiday <strong>Park</strong>.<br />

Our tool gathers information in addition to mentioning<br />

websites (for example Blogs), about social networks<br />

such as Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Instagram<br />

also. Additionally we measure the performances<br />

of the Twitter and Facebook channels of<br />

the various theme parks, as well as their relative<br />

websites.<br />

Discussion Volume (Total)<br />

We were able to identify 22,652 mentions in the<br />

period between 01.05 and 13.08.2014. During the<br />

season it could be observed that the discussion<br />

volume increased considerably during the summer.<br />

The largest volume was generated by the following<br />

social media channels: Twitter (11.2K), Facebook<br />

(3.8K) and Foren (863). <strong>Media</strong> sites (e.g. Spiegel<br />

Online) generated 1.5K and other websites (5.1K),<br />

also playing an important role.<br />

Considerably fewer contributions were observed<br />

on Blogs (81) and YouTube (66). As these types of<br />

entries are of a bigger effort and mostly of a higher<br />

content quality, the volume should be classified as<br />

notable.<br />

The large number of Twitter entries is due to two<br />

reasons: firstly the younger target group (< 20 years<br />

of age) is very active (35% is active). Secondly the<br />

low privacy settings allow for a better observation<br />

of the channel.<br />

Total Volumes<br />

As already apparent during the process, the<br />

volume in general is of a very high standard. Even<br />

without discussions in the social web fuelled by<br />

advertising promotions and other actions, smaller<br />

parks also reached over 500 mentions in the course<br />

of time. Europa-<strong>Park</strong> has the most mentions by far,<br />

which can be led back to a very strong media presence<br />

(due to events such as the Miss WM voting).<br />

Heide-<strong>Park</strong> and Phantasialand each drop by 3,600<br />

mentions, which on an average means 34 posts a<br />

SPECIAL<br />

Total discussion volume<br />

day. Movie <strong>Park</strong> and Legoland with 2,114 and 1,347<br />

mentions respectively, are slightly behind. Holiday-<br />

<strong>Park</strong>, Hansa-<strong>Park</strong>, Belantis and Tripsdrill have approximately<br />

2,500 postings. When one compares<br />

these rankings with the visitor numbers, there is a<br />

similar picture (cf. Global Attraction Attendance<br />

Report 2013, own data).<br />

<strong>Media</strong> Channels<br />

During channel comparison one can clearly recognize<br />

the relevance of Twitter, with the larger theme<br />

parks in particular having the bigger share of Twitter<br />

mentions. Europa-<strong>Park</strong> in comparison has a lower<br />

proportion, but this is compensated for by the very<br />

high number of Facebook mentions. <strong>Media</strong> and<br />

similar websites enjoy on average one-third of the<br />

mentions. Infrequently contributions could be<br />

identified in forums and blogs. In addition to already<br />

referred-to reasons, very often the motive of the visitor<br />

to make a posting is to inform friends what they<br />

are currently doing, for which fast-paced mediums<br />

such as Twitter and Facebook are more ideal.<br />

Performance of the <strong>Social</strong> <strong>Media</strong> Profile<br />

In the following section we have analysed the profile<br />

of a number of theme parks by comparison: the<br />

data relates to the month of June, and each of the<br />

changes relate to the previous month. The engagement-rate<br />

is calculated by the number of the<br />

interactions (Favs, Likes, Shares, and Re-Tweets)<br />

divided by the number of followers/fans. This is an<br />

established indicator suitable for the measuring of<br />

activities on certain channels.<br />

Twitter<br />

In the case of mentions only explicit references to<br />

the channels are intended (in the case of Twitter the<br />

linking with a @ sign). Europa-<strong>Park</strong> has by far the<br />

most fans, but it can be seen however that only a<br />

low proportion of its followers move to interaction,<br />

such as the case of Heide-<strong>Park</strong>. This phenomenon<br />

is shown often in channels with many followers, as<br />

there are frequently "fake fans" among them.<br />

Despite the high potential, the examined theme<br />

Peak (1) refers to<br />

28.05.2014; On that day two<br />

employees were injured during<br />

work on the coaster "Arthur";<br />

Peak (2) on the 30.05.2014 leads<br />

back to the Miss WM voting,<br />

which took place at Europa-<br />

<strong>Park</strong>, and about which many<br />

media sites (yellow) reported;<br />

through shares, the number of<br />

mentions increased on Twitter<br />

and Facebook also on that day<br />

Performance of the social<br />

Performance of the park<br />

websites<br />

Impressions and themes:<br />

Pictures from the entrance and<br />

Family videos are popular<br />

parks play scant attention to the Twitter channel,<br />

and post little of their own subject matter. Three of<br />

the five theme parks posted under 10 articles in the<br />

past 3 months. Additionally, the channels are mostly<br />

treated as "poor relations" and mostly and often<br />

consist of only copies of Facebook communications<br />

(for example @legoland_DE or @holiday-<br />

<strong>Park</strong>HP). Belantis has even waived the Twitter<br />

profile completely.<br />

Facebook<br />

Facebook is substantially more established in the<br />

theme park branch. Each park has its own page<br />

and fills it more or less regularly with contents. In<br />

the following diagram the number of postings has<br />

been shown as a comparison. For example Europa-<br />

<strong>Park</strong> shows that theme parks are self-propelling,<br />

and even without activation measures, can generate<br />

high engagement rates. The outstandingly high<br />

number of commentaries on the Phantasialand<br />

postings can be led back to a competition, whereby<br />

free tickets were raffled among the commenting<br />

users.<br />

The fan numbers and the engagement rates of<br />

theme park profiles are comparable to large international<br />

brands: IKEA Germany (680,637 Fans; E-<br />

Rate: 0.21), Burger King Germany (674,100 Fans;<br />

E-Rate: 0.06), DB Bahn (332,400 Fans; E-Rate:<br />

0.19). In comparison to the German fan pages such<br />

as "Places / Event-Locations", in Germany, the rankings<br />

of Phantasialand, Europa-<strong>Park</strong>, Heide-<strong>Park</strong><br />

are under the Top-10, and Movie <strong>Park</strong> is in 13 th place<br />

(cf. <strong>Social</strong>bakers 2014).<br />

Performance of the Websites<br />

The page ranking is a key performance indicator<br />

introduced by Google that can accept the values of<br />

1-10. As comparison: t-online.de has a page rank<br />

of 6 – mentions refer to the references/linking of<br />

websites in the complete data record. The website<br />

of the parks shows a similar picture. The number of<br />

mentions depends strongly on the PR-activity<br />

altogether, and the news on each of the relevant<br />

sites. Europa-<strong>Park</strong> and Legoland are very active in<br />

this area. An additional reason for the very good<br />

page ranking of Legoland could well be that the<br />

park guests are younger, and that the website is an<br />

important information channel for the parents.<br />

112


SPECIAL<br />

Impressions<br />

and themes:<br />

Selfies and Onridepictures<br />

via Twitter<br />

Impressions and User Themes<br />

Summary<br />

The contents that are disseminated are mostly very<br />

visual. Subsequently we have closely examined a<br />

number of themes and situations that can be frequently<br />

identified. The way to the theme park is captured;<br />

the entrance to the park is one of the most<br />

popular motives. And the attractions are photographed<br />

from outside and from the cars – similar to<br />

a trophy. A Selfie is a must for most visitors in a ride<br />

construction or during a break, and they are a widely<br />

spread phenomena particularly among the<br />

younger generation. Definition of a Selfie is a photo<br />

taken with a digital camera, showing mostly the<br />

photographer together with others in a special location<br />

or in a particular situation. It is a snapshot<br />

taken with the idea of making it public in social<br />

networks (Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter). Very<br />

often social networks offer additional functions<br />

such as filters or the possibility of integrating tags.<br />

We also discovered another phenomenon: young<br />

families posting elaborately arranged compilations<br />

of their theme park visit.<br />

The theme park discussions volume is of a very<br />

high standard, when compared to other branches.<br />

Contributions from visitors predominate in volume.<br />

It's the younger visitors in particular who use Twitter<br />

and other channels in order to give account of their<br />

experiences and fun. The articles are predominantly<br />

positive and non critical. Communication<br />

media that are visual and fast-paced such as<br />

Twitter, Facebook and Instagram are mostly used.<br />

Unused potential: despite less activity by theme<br />

parks on the various channels, the follower/fan<br />

numbers are on the same level as large international<br />

brands such as Burger King, Adidas and<br />

others. The users integrate with the profiles without<br />

invitation and even place postings (for example<br />

with @ at Twitter).<br />

Due to the positive tonality, social media is perfect<br />

for bringing increased attention with low triggers.<br />

That means that a positive posting for a theme park<br />

is classic word-of-mouth propaganda, and therefore<br />

is of particular value.<br />

A general media presence<br />

leads in the case of Europa-<br />

<strong>Park</strong> to a considerably increased<br />

presence in the<br />

web, mainly driven by media<br />

sites. Negative catch lines<br />

can be noticed in the discussion<br />

volumes, which can<br />

spread. Another interesting<br />

phenomenon could be discovered<br />

on YouTube: young<br />

families making their visit to<br />

a theme park public with<br />

elaborately arranged compilations.<br />

Overall it is shown<br />

that a visit to a park is of huge<br />

emotional value for the visitor,<br />

similar to a concert visit<br />

or a classic holiday. ■<br />
