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. KÄRNAPULTEN The new for 2017 Gerstlauer Sky Fly is being themed to fit in with the Karnan area. The crown symbol of King Erik from Karnan's story.
