What’s special: here, everything turns
The Breakdancer is not the only ride of its kind on the Wiesn. The performer couple Albert and Christa Aigner bought it in 1990 – since then, the Breakdancer has been an indispensable part of the Wiesn. The first Breakdancer-style ride was put into operation in the mid-1980s — people weren’t sure whether it would be successful. In the time since, the rides have become cult hit, popular with young and old alike. The special thing about the Breakdancer is that everything turns. Four gondola crosses are attached to a large turntable, each with four gondolas hanging from them. In each gondola there’s space for two passengers, so that a total of 32 people can ride along. The gondolas attached to the gondola crosses also swing around their own axis, making you feel like everything’s spinning around you.
