    As well as the new family flat ride Barcos del Mar for 2018 Hansa Park are continuing their project to theme the entire park to the Hanseatic league.

    Nessie is being rethemed. The station and surrounding area will look like the ruins of a castle. They've started adding rockwork on the tunnel in the picture. The coaster's name will stay the same.

    The entrance street is receiving two new buildings representing the Hanseatic cities of Danzig (now Gdańsk, Poland) and Krakow.

    Part of the Mexican area will be rethemed and incorporated into the Realms of Northern Europe area (home to Karnan).
    For this the park's spinning raft Rio Dorado is receiving new theming, new boats and a repaint. It will now have a pirate theme and be renamed Störtebekers Kaperfahrt. Störtebeker was a well-known pirate during the time of the Hanseatic League. He was sentenced to death and the legend has it that he asked the Mayor of Hamburg to set free as many of his men as he could walk past after his own beheading. Stortebeker's headless body managed to walk past 11 of his men but he was then stopped by the executioner who tripped him up. Nevertheless, the eleven men were executed along with the others. The senate of Hamburg asked the executioner if he was not tired after all this, but he replied he could easily execute the whole of the senate as well. For this, he himself was sentenced to death and executed by the youngest member of the senate.

    The new for 2017 Gerstlauer Sky Fly is being themed to fit in with the Karnan area.

    I have to say, this park looks absolutely stunning for a small, independent theme park!

    This park is simply beautiful and I loved all the effort they put into theming when I visited in August. Nessie's station did feel a bit dated so I'm glad it's getting an update. The raft ride fits in a lot better now!

    I meant in terms of visitor numbers, as Hansa never seems to appear on the TEA top 20 in Europe. No park with a Gerstlauer hyper in it is small.

    The Nessie area always was the weakest, but that looks amazing now! Love it!
    Just need some nice high capacity rides now.

    Finally, the park invests in good theming. Ofcourse,they have to because it needs to compete to Phantasialand and Europa-Park.

    However, they still have a lot of work to do. I'll come back in a couple of years. ;)

    The big fish mouth? That was a definite highlight.

    Glad they're doing the Storm Surge thing, was always rather hideous compared to the surrounding magnificence.

    Looks great, but it's a shame that all those buildings that once housed the Schwarzkopf aren't being put to use.
