We all love amusement parks.
Whether you come for the food, the rides or just the ambiance of having many people around you, they really offer heaps of fun.
But there is always one ride that leaves you shaking just by looking at it. However, one amusement park in Germany came under fire after a clip showed one of the rides that look like a giant swastika.
7News.com.au reported that the ride, Eagle Fly, was recently added to the Tatzmania in Loffingen, Germany. But it was only when a video of it was shared online that people started to notice the resemblance to swastika, a symbol known as a sinister emblem of the German Nazi forces.
The first one to see the design flaw was Rudiger Braun, the amusement park owner. He said to SWR that he wanted to ‘apologise to anyone who feels disturbed or offended by our design’ and that he would make sure no rides will look like a Nazi symbol in the future.
Braun also said that once he saw the sign in the skies, he would shut it down immediately and wait for its new design.
State Agency for Civic Education Michael Wehner said to SWR: “There are company blind people who, due to their non-occupation with history or the political education of the present, do not immediately realise that this geometric form is historically a no-go.
“[But] one would have to recognise in the architectural design drawings, in which direction this geometric driving device goes.”
The manufacturer said the ‘heads of the ride’ will be ‘taken back and revised.’
