Italian amusement ride manufacturer Zamperla continues to grow its European footprint, following the completion of two new installation contracts.

The Danish park Djurs Sommerland recently opened a new farm themed family area, named Bondegadsland, with several Zamperla rides being chosen for this latest addition to the park.

Designed by Jora Vision the new area represents a Scandinavian farmstead and all the rides within it were specially themed.

Of course, Zamperla offers many themed rides ‘off the shelf’ so Jora Vision was able to choose the Barnyard and Jump Around Frogs as two of the attractions which went perfectly with the theme of the area.

All that was required was to customise the colour schemes on these rides, thus avoiding any extra costs on aspects such as moulds and tooling.

Also included were examples of Zamperla’s Demolition Derby and Magic Bikes rides, with Jora Vision creating new themed décor for these that our Art Department turned into reality.

In Turkey, meanwhile, the first example of Zamperla’s Air Race 6.4 to open in the country is enjoying much success.

There are now 40 examples of the hugely successful Air Race ride in operation around the world – and up until earlier this year only one in Turkey, an 8.2 model in the Mall of Istanbul.

In the spring, however, that situation changed with the opening of an Air Race 6.4 in Genclik Parki in Ankara.

The spectacular action of the Air Race already makes it a very popular ride but this particular example was enhanced even further by the addition of an eye-catching lighting package featuring over 4,500 LED lights.

The result is an amazing ride with a powerful visual impact that attracts everyone who sees it.
