Leave it to the germans to do it again. Just when you though led's, strobes, fog, and a million dj lights where enough, they add flame throwers and confeti cannons.

Flame thromers are nice, confeti I can see being a pain at the end of the night.

That is amazing. Maybe Mike Wood should consider some flame throwers on the Magnum lol.

I always thought DecaDance in Belgium had the coolest flame throwers I've seen on a ride, you can see a little of them in the vid. It also has confetti, fog and all the usual European bells and whistles.

The europeans know how to dress up a ride and take it to the next level. Too bad we'll never see that here.

Your right, youll never see open flames on a carnival ride in the U.S.A., OUR SAFTEY REGULATIONS ARE MUCH MORE STRICK, and the europeans are competing against each other for the money being spent. I always wondered how much they charge per ride, as compared to here. When it come to the big rides, we have just as flashy rides as over there, you just might not be going to the right spots....lol.
As far as confetti, looks cool, but i wonder what kind of extra maintenance they have to do to get that paper out of greased up crevaces. Do you really think its a good idea to have "debrea" floating in the face and eyes of the riders, going at high speeds?? Just my take on it, but what do i know, im just a novelty guy...lol
