What's new at the Oktoberfest 2017

In the Munich City Museum, Oktoberfest boss Josef Schmid presented the most important news about the Oktoberfest 2017.

The festival grounds:

The festival grounds will have a size of 34.5 hectares. 545 businesses have been admitted this year, 143 form the gastronomical sector, 151 carnies and 251 vendors. About 13.000 people will be employed at the Oktoberfest.

Six new fun rides will debut at the Oktoberfest 2017: The “Drifting Coaster” is a wild ride with swinging gondolas, the “Voodoo Jumper” shoots you up and down again and again, creating a feeling of weightlessness. The “XXL Racer” lifts you up to heights of 55 meters and the “Jules Vernes Tower” takes you on a 65km/h chairoplane flight in a height of 70 meters.
At the “Oide Wiesn”, things are a bit more relaxed when the “Märchenlandexpress” takes you on a magic ride through a fairy tale land and a 70-year-old chairoplane lets you ride in goats, horses and pigs.
