Winter Wonderland 2016
Cardiff’s great seasonal attraction is back to give the city centre its famous festive sparkle, and this year local major employer Admiral are on board – and there is a brand new additional feature built on to keep skaters dry as the attraction becomes Cardiff’s Winter Wundercoverland

Cardiff’s Winter Wonderland with Admiral Ice Rink will run from Thursday November 10 to Tuesday January 3, and after one of the wettest winters on record last year, organiser Sayers Amusements are reducing the risk of people missing out on skating sessions by looking to keep skaters super dry with a clear span roof and night sky lights.

Cancer Research Wales is this year’s charity for Cardiff’s Winter Wonderland
The beneficiary charity this year for Cardiff’s Winter Wonderland is the current Lord Mayor’s Charity – Cancer Research Wales, with funds raised going to clinical and laboratory based cancer research in universities and hospitals across Wales, including Velindre Cancer Centre, which is a centre of excellence for the non-surgical treatment of cancer.

Cardiff’s great seasonal attraction brings its festive sparkle back on November 10 for 55 days of skating fun, and this year’s ice rink features a brand new addition built on to keep skaters dry as the attraction becomes Cardiff’s Winter Wundercoverland with a clear span roof that offers fantastic views of City Hall, and night sky lights.

The popular crowd puller in the heart of the city will draw around a quarter of a million visitors over eight weeks, so there is plenty of opportunity for fundraising activities, including:

– bucket collections
– collection tin at Nativity
– banners throughout venue
– weekly raffle – VIP tickets for a family of four to Winter Wonderland
– Sunday before Christmas – a candle by night event

Katie Killoran, Corporate Fundraiser with Cancer Research Wales said: “Cancer Research Wales are delighted to have been chosen as charity partner this year at Cardiff’s Winter Wonderland. The money raised from this partnership will help bring advances in cancer prevention, treatment and cure closer to home here in Wales. Thank you so much for your support!”

Operator Norman George Sayers of Sayers Amusements said: “Some of the world’s leading cancer research takes place in Wales. Cancer Research Wales is a terrific charity and appropriately the current Lord Mayor’s Charity, so we are particularly excited to partner with them, and hope that the generous people of south Wales will raise a great amount over the eight weeks of Winter Wonderland.”

Catherine Powell named Président of Euro Disney S.A.S.

Catherine Powell

(Marne-la-Vallée, April 12, 2016) Euro Disney S.C.A. today announced the nomination of Catherine Powell to the position of Président of Euro Disney S.A.S., the management company of both Euro Disney S.C.A., the holding company, and Euro Disney Associés S.C.A., the operator of Disneyland® Paris.

“We are thrilled to welcome Catherine to Disneyland Paris,” said Karl Holz, president of New Vacation Operations and Disney Cruise Line. “Catherine has held a variety of senior leadership roles throughout the world for Disney, including in Australia and Europe, and has proven to be an exceptional leader who has the versatility and experience needed to lead the continued success of Disneyland Paris.”

Powell replaces Tom Wolber, who will return to the United States to take on operational responsibilities of Disney Cruise Line at a critical time for that business. Disney recently announced it is adding two additional ships to the Disney Cruise Line fleet.

“Tom’s knowledge of shipbuilding is unparalleled, as he previously oversaw a number of complex expansion projects including the successful launches of the Disney Wonder, Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy. We are grateful for his many contributions in Paris and are anxious to have him back at the Cruise Line to oversee our latest expansion,” said Holz.

“On behalf of my fellow Supervisory Board members, I would like to thank Tom for his thoughtful leadership of Euro Disney and his dedication to the resort, its Cast Members and all of the Guests who have visited Disneyland Paris,” said Virginie Calmels, chairman of Euro Disney Supervisory Board. “We are excited to welcome Catherine back to Europe and especially to Euro Disney and look forward to her continued success in her new role.”

Catherine will begin her new assignment in July 2016. In the meantime, Tom and Catherine will transition the responsibilities to ensure continued commitment to the company’s long term strategic priorities.

Catherine currently serves as the company’s Managing Director for Australia and New Zealand and has more than 12 years of experience in global roles throughout Europe, the Middle East and Asia. In her most recent role, she has been responsible for leading all of Disney’s business divisions, overseeing global franchises, and expanding existing and new business in the region. Catherine previously led the Media Distribution division of The Walt Disney Company in Europe, Middle East and Africa. Previously, she served as Disney Media Distribution’s senior vice president, Sales – UK, Ireland, Nordic, Benelux and Israel; and prior to that, the executive director – Sales, UK and Ireland. Before joining Disney, Catherine worked for BBC Worldwide for seven years, where she held various senior TV sales roles across territories including Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Germany and Spain/Portugal.

LEGO® Grand Carousel (10196)

Gepubliceerd: 2 juni 2013

Lego 10196 Grand Carousel from 2009 with Power Functions and Sound. Has 3263 pieces and 9 minifigures. This is an edited video from one I made for my original channel jolson37. It was not until I took it apart that we realized everything that was wrong from moving the set. It worked great until I moved it. It is delicate once assembled.

I sold mine to someone in South Korea and used the funds to by more Lego. It was hard to make the decision to sell this set because it is a really cool model.

Kermisgangers genept in saaiste attractie ooit

Kermisgangers genept in saaiste attractie ooit

21-05-2014, 16:16 |

Haarlem – Een attractie op de kermis op de Grote Markt in Haarlem (april 2014) is zo extreem saai dat kermisgangers er spontaan bij in slaap vallen. Op een filmpje is te zien hoe de exploitant Paashuis van de klassieke Copacabana Polyp de spanning flink opbouwt met hilarische kreten als “Willen we nog een beetje sneller?!”, terwijl de molen minutenlang in een slakkentempo vooruit kruipt. Het blijkt een virale reclamespot te zijn van het Verbond van Verzekeraars. Want in een wereld zonder verzekeringen, wordt de kermis nooit echt spannend.

Spannendste kermisattractie ever

Gepubliceerd op 20 mei 2014

Het mooie van verzekeren zijn we uit het oog verloren. We willen weer duidelijk maken dat verzekeringen er zijn om ervoor te zorgen dat je kunt doen wat jij wilt doen – zonder al te grote belemmeringen. Om dat duidelijk te maken halen we heel even de vanzelfsprekendheid weg. In een wereld zonder verzekeringen wordt de kermis bijvoorbeeld nooit echt spannend.
