Oktoberfest photos

Alex, I worked as a bartender for several years, so I'm aware of the properly sized head for a draught beer. But thanks for pointing it out. My personal nominee for sickest German ride would have to be the Flying Circus The techno music soundtrack doesn't help either.

So long as they're not being used to feed a child. :)

Also, don't forget beer. Boobs, rides, and beer. Sounds like a great time.

Just came back from the Oktoberfest. Went yesterday/Monday. Got into the beertend at noon, left when it closed at 10.30pm, never made it really to the ridesection. :-)

Craziest new ride I have seen was called Rocket which is sure something I never would get on, even if my life were depending on it

Didn't look like there were too many legs dangling from the seats. When I started watching the video, I snickered to myself "I wonder if you could snap the cables." Then the thing rotated, and I'm thinking Holy ****!

I've been to some Oktoberfest here in the states, but from the pictures nothing comes close the the ones held in Deutschland. And does anyone know why it's held in September and not October?

Does it rotate of its own free will or is there an electric motor that induces it? I couldn't see any other infrastructure (CV joints etc) that would cause the spin.

Dick Kinzel will be ordering 5 or 6 of these for next year, just wait and see...

I think the Rocket is made by Funtime. Safe to say we probably won't be seeing one of them in a CF park anytime soon. :)

^ You're right! We'll be getting the new Super duper charged Puking version by Mondial - and sponsored by Cuisinart food processors and Tide laundry detergent!

-Oktoberfest is held mostly in September because the Weather is usually a lot nicer when compared to October(it still runs into the first week of oct)

-The Rocket Ride spinning is controlled

I can see how warmer weather is better to do it in Sept, never thought of that. :)

It's interesting that at certain times, it was called "Autumn Fest." But I didn't see a good explanation why the name was changed.
