When zombie-like made-up children plunge into a black hole, waves tower like a tsunami, blood-red water fills the swimming pools, and ear-splitting shrieks demand a foam party! Then is knax-halloween-party in the aqua riese in bad staffelstein. The third edition of the event in the sports and recreation pool was also completely sold out with over 300 children and 100 adults. Only two weeks after the announcement of the event date there were no more tickets available. This shows that the event has established itself as a fixed rumpus in the region.
But also beyond that, thomas schwander of the sparkasse coburg-lichtenfels tells us: "we even have guests from nurnberg, dachau, munich and siegen, who came especially for the halloween party and secured their tickets early!" that is already great! The well-rehearsed radio-one-presenter-duo julia bach and tim pechauf knew how to inspire the crowd of children from the very beginning. This is how they transformed the sports pool into a giant wave pool with the help of 600 children’s legs. DJ volker ernst always provides the appropriate musical framework. For the blood red water the in-house animation team of the sparkasse coburg lichtenfels is responsible. The trainees of the regional bank transform the water into a blood-red sea with the help of special swimming pool paint and are always right in the middle of the party action during the entire event.
The foam party is of course also part of the program.
The entire sports area is covered with white foam flakes. But where everyone else is partying, the safety of all guests must also be ensured. With over 400 guests, red water and lots of foam, this is an extreme challenge for the supervisors of the aqua giant. It helps a lot, says martin luders, manager of the swimming pool, that with the DLRG bad staffelstein a powerful troop is on hand to support the fun non halloween party with supervisors, rescue divers and sanitation workers.
