Yes, you get the tickets at the booth that is located at the barrier to/from the parking lot. It is near the bottom of the stairs to the road bridge (but I think I've seen some ticket machines near the main entrance as well, iirc).

A newsletter from Hansa Park says that two new family rides are coming next year along with Kärnan's upgrade, but it comes at the expense of two rides leaving.

El Paso Express (the Schwarzkopf Superbob in the back of the Mexico area) is getting torn down due to lack of spare parts, while Torre Del Mar (the Starflyer) is leaving the park due to Kärnan's tower apparently causing issues with changing wind conditions. Speculation has it that Torre Del Mar is heading to Terra Mitica in Spain as that park has put up advertisement for an 80m tall ride coming next year. Details for the two new additions aren't known yet.

^Interesting that they have decided to remove the starflyer rather than just re locate it.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Its a shame that the Starflyer is leaving as I always enjoy riding them. As for El Paso with the way it was being operated during our last visit I have no issues with it leaving at all. There can't be many of those ride left now can there?

It's quite disappointing to see El Paso leave, it looked like a very unique attraction at the park.

El Paso's demise has been a long time coming methinks. I think it was even supposed to be removed last year going by early versions of the 2015 park map where the ride was clearly missing.

As for Torre Del Mar, most of the available space to relocate it is already too close to Kärnan. The only other spot I could think of would be the grass field to the northwest beside Barracuda Slide, but it seems to be used as outdoor storage for now (they placed most of the pieces for Kärnan and Fluch there during construction).

Remember the lanterns on the back of Kärnans train? Well they light up at night =) There is some lights at the front of the train aswell wich means that I was lucky enough to get a front row lights on ride :br I was geeking out so bad :lmao:

By the way do anyone know the lift speed of Kärnan? it's hauling up that lift!

Two new rides for 2016:

Der Kleine Zar ("The Little Tsar")
- a kiddie coaster, but adults will also be allowed to ride
- themed just like the big coasters of the park
- with a unique soundtrack
- located in the middle of the park, near Novgorod

Hansa-Flieger ("Hansa Flyer")
- a wave swinger
- in the entrance area of the park


No further details unfortunately.
