Oh I love how my friend feeds me news, and it goes mainstream *do note: I gave mark the information, he asked if he could put it on TT and I let him :) * :lol:


I have to admit, from that list I gave you Mark, the ones I'd expect are the wheel/Ghost House & Power Tower 2, but personally I'd like to also see:

Image
Mondial Inferno "New Comer"

Image
Bazin's Mondial Capriolo "MaxXimum"

Image
Aigner's Mondial Shake "Insider"

Image
Heitmann/Schneider's MACK "Wild Wasser 2"

Image
Oscar Bruch's Maurer Sohne "Spinning Racer"

Image
Kipp/Kroon's KMG XXL "XXL"

Image
Kaiser's Zierer Star Shape "High Energy"


That's my pick, I mean, look at them! :lol:

I went to that fair last year. The giant wheel was alright, the ghost train was cool, but none of those other rides were there.

For those who dont know this is a 4 million pound travelling shot and drop tower and travels on 10 lorrys. Its 62.0 m / 203.4 ft high and seats 32.

Documented as the best travelling tower in the World. This is not to be missed.

I'll probably come to the HP:WW again like I did the last two years.
I don't think I'd have the courage to do that tower, despite the fact I've been on drop towers before.

UPDATE

The Zierer Blackhole Coaster is also set to come to London also:-

Are they going to theme all the rides again :roll:
I want them to look at least slightly original.

---- Post Info Added ----

This is the operator to look out for. It's Christina! She's one of their best operators. [url=" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;][/url]

Hope she speaks as good English as German.

what does she do that is so special? all she does is talk down the mic, add some echo on to it and send the ride. ohh and does a little dance :S . if she is one of the best what are their worst like?.

I just love how at the German fairs the mic echo's last for ages, really adds to the atmosphere and quite spooky when the bass is affected. Reminds me of Edward Mellor with Space Roller.

I'm looking forward to Winter Wonderland, should be a good fair this year.

Exactly my point Adzy.

Anyone can speak down a mic, it's what you say, how to say it and the approach you take towards saying something. She really knows how to create a big atmosphere on a ride which normally wouldn't have any. She also knows when and what to say when the rides at different stages and motions during it's cycle, which is really good.

They do have longer lasting effects on the mic, it's been the German Kirmes way for years as I've been told, it might sound spooky to you, as the German language seems to be a lot more dramatic than ours and that's what I like about it.

It makes for a very good experiance 8)

That ride looks impressive to look at and you'd think it would be good. To be honest that is pants and looks boring as hell, and she'd get on my nerves very quickly. :P

Why is it funny? I think it's very well thought out and I love the lift level feature, which tells you which floor it's supposedly at :clap:
