Theme Park in Germany Closes New Ride

6 posts in this topic

This is an interesting story coming out of Germany where a new ride has been closed, and will be redesigned, due to the appearance of the ride being compared to a swastika.

How could the designer possibly have made such an obvious error, especially when the ride's in Germany?

I can't figure out the manufacturer, but news reports suggest the ride manufacturer is Italian.

I'd suggest without the 'eagle' theming, the ride probably doesn't look that way. The ride structure without the theming wouldn't resemble the swastika, and when the theming was added, they'd have looked at the gondola in isolation, not in action.

Its a fairly honest mistake to make. It's a whoops, and an epic one at that.

I'm off to sue god because the cloud i can see out my window right now resembles Donald Trump.
