You get in. The restraint bars close... Click!... Now there’s no turning back.
Hangover starts moving! Slowly, the gondola rotates in the sky. You get a breath-taking view over your city.
After 40 metres you realise how incredibly high Hangover the Tower really is. But you're not even halfway there yet.
A few moments later you've reached the summit. Slowly, the gondola turns in the sky in all four compass directions.
...Whoosh!... you plummet back to earth at almost 100 km/h! The gondola brakes gently just before it reaches the ground.
The 85-metre-high ride was built for 2.8 million euros by the famous manufacturer Funtime in Vienna. On 18 July 2015, the time had finally come for the fair on the banks of the Rhine, and Hangover the Tower set off on its maiden trip. It had it all.
The Schneiders were the first to offer not only a rotating gondola, but also minimalist restraint bars and other surprises such as its ‘Magic Fingers’. What's more, half-height free fall is also possible to offer countless possible variations to the audience in front of the ride and the passengers themselves alike.
Dates for 2021 are in preparation.
As a result of constantly changing regulatory requirements during the coronavirus pandemic, we can only announce the dates for Hangover The Tower at short notice.
See you soon for the biggest hangover of your life!
