Premier was an excellent partner for Holiday Park. There was great synergy between the two companies which resulted in the ride opening early and performing extremely reliably. Plopsa is committed to making significant investments to bring our guests the best entertainment product in Europe. Sky Scream certainly validates that commitment.” — Steve Van den Kerkhof, CEO of Plopsa Group
Amsterdam, The Netherlands (September 24, 2014) — Premier Rides, Inc., a Baltimore based supplier of high caliber and innovative theme park attractions, garnered international acclaim at the European Star Awards Tuesday, September 23rd by receiving a European Star Award in the category of Best New Rides. Presented by Kirmes & Park Revue, the awards recognize entrepreneurship, courage and innovation within the European theme park industry. After reviewing attractions spanning across Europe, including Turkey and Russia, a panel of international experts selected “Sky Scream”, located at Holiday Park, as one of the top three best new rides for 2014.
Jim Seay, President of Premier Rides, commented, “We are extremely proud that Sky Scream was selected for a European Star Award in the category of Best New Rides 2014. It was an honor to work with the Plopsa Group, one of the fastest-growing and most successful entertainment companies in Europe. The Holiday Park staff were passionate about creating a first-class highly-themed thrill ride unlike any other in Europe. The results speak for themselves.”
The ride has been a spectacular success for Holiday Park Germany, drawing a record-number of coaster enthusiasts and thrill-seekers to the park since its opening in April. Guests have traveled from both near and far to enjoy the high-adrenaline thrill of Sky Scream.
The zombie-themed launch coaster is not for the faint of heart. The magnetic technology allows the ride vehicle to be launched forward, then in reverse, then forward again even faster. It features a twisting heart line inversion, ascending and descending twists, two vertical rolls and a non-inverting loop.
