@MaBi: First of all, thank you for your pics from the Munich "Wiesn", compatriot MaBi!
Sorry for my long Offtopic now: So true...yes. It was a shame, what Arrow did with the fantastic and spectacular former portable 4er Looping-Carnival-Coaster "Thriller" from showman Oscar Bruch Sr. ---> "Zonga" @ SFMW (now SFDK) in Vallejo.
The modification - or rather - the reduction of the first drop was more than a shame and of course the new (uggly) trains as well !!
I´ don´t know exactly, if the rumors that the "Olympia Looping" from showman Rudolf Barth Sr. will have its last season 2010 are true...; last rumor what i heared is, that the Olympia Looping will start his new season 2011 on the "Hamburger (Frühlings/Spring) Dom" but don´t know if it is a fact...!
But i could very good imagine, that if his most and big competitor Oscar Bruch will get some new big portable Loopcoaster maybe the next time - well...Rudolf Barth will get also something new and very soon and want´s to sell his "Olympia Looping"... but it´s only my opinion ... no more.
You have to imagine, that only the Non-Loop-Coaster "Alpina Bahn" in Düsseldorf sucks for a big and famous Carnival like the "Düsseldorfer Rheinkirmes" the next years. And: the other two big coasters like "Olympia Looping" (showman Rudolf Barth Sr.) or the Douple Loop "Teststrecke" (showman Steiger OHG) are not welcomed (and was never there in history, and will never be in Düsseldorf as so long as Oscar Bruch has a big coaster like his last one - its "Alpina Bahn") in Düsseldorf because of the familiy Oscar Bruch, who is a so called iconic Showman-Family from Düsseldorf...you know i mean?! The Family Bruch has its roots in Düsseldorf and has big influence to this city and the "Schützenverein" in Düsseldorf as well. Believe me, i can tell you that.
So, Oscar Bruch has to bring something new portable coaster - and to my opinion - very soon for Düsseldorf (!)...
That´s very interesting for me as a 100 percent Schwarzkopf-Fan, what you have heared! Have you something more infos about that "rumor" of the consideration of a "recreation" of the Olympia Looping @ Bobbejaanland?
Would it have been a "1:1 - Recreation" of the Olympia Looping or a little bit modified creation of the original Olympia Looping from showman Rudolf Barth, if the Bobbejaanland had decided for such a classic Schwarzkopf Loopcoaster? Do you know more details of this, Dragon Khan?
That what i heared for about four years, was that there was some consultations with Wieland Schwarzkopf but they found no resolution (and with the dutch manufacturer Vekoma about a Flying Coaster also...; here an article (25.10.2006) unfortunately only in german language from Coastersandmore.de Typhoon - Wie entsteht eine Achterbahn); i guess because such a compact Multi-Loop-Coaster allá Schwarzkopf would be very very expansive (perhaps too expansive for the Bobbejaanland...), so... but i don´t know exactly the reason why they decided finally for a Gerstlauer "Euro-Fighter"-Coaster...ya...ok, one reason i could imagine: a Euro Fighter is much more cheaper than a compact coaster (for example Olympia Looping) in the style of Schwarzkopf!
So for sure...yes, it will be very exciting where the Olympia Looping will go, if he would sold...
BTW: As the most knows yet for 2011, there is a Maurer Söhne Spinning Coaster for the Bobbejaanland in planning; so...would there be much more place for a Coaster like the Olympia Looping as well in this belgium park, Dragon Khan?
Regards from Germany
P.S: And sorry for my not so well English...
