Park News - (3/11/13) It has been confirmed that the Monte Zuma tower attraction at Hansapark in Germany has been removed to make way for a new unknown attraction. Anyone know more?
(10/29/12) Screamscape sources report that Hansa Park is removing the Monte Zuma tower ride, and have noticed that it is also no longer listed on the park’s website.
(6/12/07) I wasn’t aware of this myself, but Germany’s Hansa-Park actually started out it’s life as the world’s second Legoland park, opening in 1973 as Legoland Siersdorf, the follow up to Legoland Billund that had just opened in 1968. Things just didn’t work out for the park and it was closed in 1976 and reopened a year later as Hansaland before adopting the current Hansa-Park name in 1987. Even today the park’s main entrance still has that that classic Legoland style look. This will all change very soon however as the entrance will be converted over the next few years (from 2007 to 2012) into a collection of well known monument structures built 3:2 scale including a 54 foot tall version of the Holsten Gate (Luebeck, Germany) that will be the new entrance.
2015 - New Attraction - Rumor - (10/29/12) With the removal of Monte Zuma, it is rumored that the park may be looking at building a new indoor freefall drop attraction for the 2015 season.
