1) The Sapa Inka Show is a combination of two shows that were already in the park – a laser show with projections, technical effects etc and an animal show with crocodiles, reptiles etc. We had a good relationship with dancer Diana Antoine and wanted to keep her in the park, so we gave all these ingredients to [parent company] Studio 100 and the Sapa Inka Show is what they came up with!


2) Here you can see the some of the new theming in Fontänenplatz. On the left is a place where we sell doner kebab, which is a very popular product in Germany, next to that we sell sweet stuff, then we have the new Holiday Park Museum. We have put a lot of things in there that have been kept in the park for many years, but have never been put on display. It is important to remind people that this is a park with a long history.


3) These fountains were added last year. On hot days this is one of the most popular attractions in the park. In the evening, just before they go home, it is filled with hundreds of children – and they get so wet! I don’t know how their parents get them back in the car!


4) These people are watching our freefall tower, which we rethemed last year as Anubis. It really brings out the crowds, and is still a very popular thrill attraction that never loses its kick.
