Earlier this year, Matthias Clostermann, chief executive of diversified German attractions group Clostermann Design, noted that many sectors of the world theme park were being pulled back, as operators postponed their purchasing decisions due to adverse economic conditions.

Now, as global markets begin to recuperate, Clostermann told InterPark: "[Operators] seem to want to make up for this delay now all the more, and we are glad that our entertainment concepts have convinced our clients even over these long decision making phases.

"This year started out at high speed for us. So far, we have worked on three major projects: the Eisberg Antarctica-themed dark ride at the Vienna Prater, Austria; the walkthrough family attraction Raeven Hule for Farup Sommerland, Denmark; and the complete surreal design and theming of the German midway attraction The Tower Event Centre."

Clostermann looks set to continue on the same trajectory throughout 2010 and beyond, and the group has recently laid out plans and designs for several themed attractions in several venues across Europe and Asia.

For more than 10 years, Clostermann Design has been developing and fabricating premium quality custom themed attractions for theme parks, museums and themed FECs around the world.
