That's awesome. It's a shame people are such p*ssies in America. Something like that would never be allowed to exist.

Can I park my donkey here?

So many things blow my mind when it comes to German fairs

- Each ride seems like its own party with the incredible light packages, talkative ride ops, fog, jingles, and music
- It still boggles my mind how people are allowed to stand so close to the rides while they are in motion and they all know that they shouldn't do anything stupid. Complete opposite of what we find over here
- While I would never ride it, VooDoo Jumper is a real standout on the midway. Seizure-inducing strobes and LED's combined with the flames in the center make for a true visual spectacle
- The fact that some creative showman completely copied the Disney Alien Encounter attraction and made it portable is crazy. I watched a video of it on YouTube and while I didn't understand a lot of it, that attraction alone puts most of the American portable rides/attractions to shame
- The Drifting Coaster looks like a reverse Arrow suspended coaster (i.e- it looks like tons of fun)

All I can say is I love the videos and wish us folks in the States could enjoy a fair of this magnitude rather than the standard State Fairs we have. While they can be quite large, they can never match what looks to be sheer epicness at Oktoberfest.

Thanks for sharing!

I had this thought too. It actually reminds me a lot of the original Bat at Kings Island since the turns themselves are completely un-banked which leads to much more violent swinging.

I'd say it looks like Bat 1.0 had sex with a wild mouse and this is the offspring.

I'd love to see a version come to the states. Will it? Not likely.

^ That's pretty wild. I actually remember this thing at the Seattle World's Fair in 1962!
And it was just as crazy and funny to watch then, as it is now. Only better with booze!
Great video, Robb.
