Thats a possibility it just seems that the organisers are too scared to try anything out of the ordinary!

Do we know 100% that 'Showtime' will be attending this event, also do we know at this point what other attractions are defiantly returning?

I would naturally think that as well as 'Power Tower 2' both 'Snow Jet' and the 'Christmas Coaster' will be making a return.

Looking good so far, considering they did so well last year i'm not surprised that Abie Danter has returned with 'AIR'. Would you mind me asking where you got the info? And is there anything else on the site which would suggest any other machines would definitely be attending?

Rather enjoyed this last year, and will certainly make the effort to return at some point this time around! It's worth it for Air alone, really, and (even if it's massively overpriced) the atmosphere is fantastic. :)

My stand out attraction was...............The Carousel Bar.

Nothing better than sipping on a warm mulled wine while feeling slightly disorientated on a moving bar!  :drunk:

I guess this is not the same winter wonderland that **ssed everybody off.
Yeah that one that was muddy and...I think the main attraction was 2 reindeer that were chained up.
Hey, atleast they didn't use golden retrievers with reindeer hair bands.

I'd say golden retrievers was a bit to classy for that winter wonderland, I heard it was two ferret's.

London City Coaster from Buwalda is attending this year.

Some people might know it as Grizzly Bear from Lightwater Valley.

There seems to be a lot of rumours flying around the various forums online.

Some of which come from genuine posters also who do know a lot about the event. We are only here to provide 100% confirmed rides arriving from the UK and Europe, but we have listed below some rides which have strong possibility of attending.


Rasch's Giant Der Grosse Irrgarten Fun House/Mirror Maze.
Alpen Hotel
Schierenbeck's Black Hole Roller Coaster
The Mondial Gladiator Turbine ride from Buwalda-Kriek

Time will tell!
