What’s special: rude sayings with Bavarian charm
Whoever visits the Teufelsrad (Devil’s Wheel) for the first time will be surprised: There’s no modern technology, no “faster, higher, wilder,” but instead a concept as simple as it is ingenious. In the middle of the wooden arena is a large disc that rotates. At the command of the moderator (among others, Wiggerl Kugler with his twirled moustache and rough voice) - for example “All children ages 8 to 14 years ride!” or “All girls over 18 in dirndls!” - the aforementioned group elect storms the disk and sits down. The best seats are in the middle. Then the disc sets itself in motion - slowly first, then faster and faster, accompanied by the sayings and tales of the moderators, which are sometimes rather rough, but always charming in a Bavarian way. One passenger after the other slides off the disc due to centrifugal force, and those who don’t get off by themselves are “shot down” with a skillful lasso throw or a large ball hanging from a rope.
