- The ride will be an Apollo swing ride from Technical Park fitted with a combination of motorcycles and dinghies.
- Each vehicle can be individually controlled.
- The minimum height requirement to ride will be 90 centimeters.

Just looking at Technical Park's website as I didn't know what an Apollo Swing was, and some of the examples they have on there are absolutely beautiful! The theming looks just about the best I've ever seen on a family spin ride. Perfect fit for Hansa :lover:

I'm currently at Hansa Park and it is dead. There are probably more employees than guests right now. We actually had to wait at Kärnan because they couldn't dispatch until we had more riders. Wonderful park, but is this normal??

There may be a weight rule to make sure the train completes the course. I don't think I've ever seen it run empty even during morning test runs.

Plus Hansa sees most of its business from summer tourists either from the mainland or abroad. They're not gonna be there on a week day mid-September,

It could also be that there 'Autumn magic by the sea' festival is on, locals etc where probably waiting for that to start (think it started on the 13 or 14th Oct. When it is on many people will probably arrive later (after school time) for the lights and parade midweek.
