2021_FKF-Award_RideToHappiness_©MarvinSchaluschke1icon_STOPCompany News - (2/13/22) Today the German “theme park and funfair association” Freundeskreis Kirmes und Freizeitparks Parks e.V. (FKF) announced the winners of this year’s FKF-Awards to honor European attractions, parks and showmen from the previous year.
    The FKF-Award for best roller coaster was awarded to Ride to Happiness by Tomorrowland at Plopsaland de Panne in Belgium. “Built by German manufacturer Mack Rides, the Xtreme Spinning Coaster impresses with two catapult launches, five inversions and a well-rounded overall concept with license partner Tomorrowland.”
    Congratulations to Plopsaland de Panne on this prestigious award!

 
    (1/7/22) Plopsa Group opened a new indoor park in the Czech Republic the last week of December called Majaland Praha. Based on the Studio 100 character, Maya the Bee, the small indoor park is intended for children between the ages of 2 and 10. The park features a dozen different rides (many provided by Zamperla) with the list included a Vicky the Viking themed coaster, a Butterfly Swing, Dinosaur Carousel, Bumper Cars, a family drop tower and many more.
    According to this article Plopsa is also working on opening another new park this Spring in Poland to be called Majaland Warscahu (Warsaw). Beyond that they are also working on plans to open two more parks in Poland in Gdansk and Katowice.

 

PLOPSALAND DE PANNE (Adinkerke - De Panne, Belgium)

Park News - (2/20/22) The Ride To Happiness coaster at Plopsaland De Panne suffered from a valley in a most unfortunate location, according to the video below. The spinning coaster trains came to a halt in the dip in the track at perhaps the tallest point of the ride, on the top-hat style element. At the moment we can only assume it was a valley (possible high wind? Bad weather is said to be invovled) and not something  more serious like a wheel issue that caused the train to get stuck like that. At the end of the clip rescue workers are seen arriving at the park to rescue the 7 riders who became stuck up there for a few hours before they could all be safely evacuated.
