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, so that since a few years there is another attraction of this kind on the Wiesn, the "Breakdance No. 1" by Tanja and Jörg Kaiser-Grünberg.
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.
