Photo TR: Cranger kirmis - The fair in Herne, Germany


Recommended Posts

Yesterday I went to the Cranger kirmis.

 

The main reason I went was because the Olympia Looping was there, but since I was there anyway I rode a few other rides as wel.

 

ADMIN NOTE: After checking out Wishmaster's awesome photos, download the POV Video of Olympia Looping in the members only section: http://www.themeparkreview.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=21986

Olympia Loopings!

And then there were loopings!

It spins really fast and keeps you hanging upside down for a long time. What more do people want?

IMG_0001.jpg.f86b310196f246a489073288fc91667b.jpg

Vortex is a great ride. I just wonder why there were so few people on it.

I really enjoyed that ride! :twisted:

A hint: If the opp askes if you want to go again, yell "Nein". As a punishment, he might let you have the extra rounds at an ever higher speed than normal! :twisted:

The "Herr der Lufte" was there as well!

Yay, Olympia Looping Bahn! That ride is unbelievably good.

 

One of the main reasons our fairs aren't like theirs is because lack of common sense prevails here in the States.

The Predator looks amazing, but the Stargate looks so fake. Sorry, but Sci-Fi fans like me always criticize. I hope you had a good trip and thanks for sharing with us!

 

That's exactly what I was about to say Other than that, German fairs look really nice compared to North American fairs !

The fair looks awesome! Olympia Looping looks amazing, and the flying wolf thing looks cool, too. "Want to go again?" "Nein." "Okay!" *woosh* "AAAAAAAAAAAAAH" Something that scared me, though, is that the Top Scan looks like the one that the woman at Adventureland got flung off of and flew into the parking lot! Even the backround is the same! I wouldn't go on that thing if I were you!

There is one thing I think is problematic is that if someone is sick or suffers BADLY he is doomed. While looking at the TopBuzz I spotted a girl inside that felt really bad. She was crying and looked very sick. She was hysterical and it was clear this far too much for her. the first part of the ride ended and while being in the air the ride op asked everybody if the wanted more ? - she and her friends just screamed NOOOOOOOOO and tried the best they could to show the ride op this is an emergency. But the stupid ride op didnt care and the ride continued even faster. The girl puked all over herself and the ride. She was extremly ill later and was crying outside the ride.

That pissed me off and I decided not to get into any of the wilde rides out there as it was clear I might died inside and none will stop it.

In a theme park each ride got its exact duration but in a fair they just do what they wish. It can be fun if you enjoy it but it can be BAD if you are sick.

But Olympia Looping is not the only large transportable coaster traveling along German fairs.

 

Here are some pics i have taken from those coasters at the Dusseldorf fair last july.

Another great coaster is the "Alpina Bahn". This is a large and very smooth Schwartzkopf speedcoaster.

First the worlds only and largest transportable inverted coaster called "Euro Star". It´s nickname is "Euro Ouch" because of it´s very rough ride. This coaster is build by Intamin.
