Slagharen

1 stem

The park Slagharen located in Slagharen exists since 1963, it was started by a shopkeeper who built houses around a farm with the extra for each house a Shetland pony and a cart, there was also built a large outdoor pool with a playground and sandbox in that year this ensured that a day visit was possible but at a low entrance price.

 

From 1965 began the growth with some fairground attractions, laughter mirrors, a theater with water organ and the number of houses went to 100.

 

In 1966 four things were added: a bowling alley, Diorama, a barge boat basin and a pony track, at the cottages there was also a possibility to ride with two-wheeled carriages.

 

In 1968 "Onderwaterland" came to the park later called Nautilus and the holiday park became bigger.

 

In 1969, there were bumper cars and a calypso, then very famous fairground attraction`s to the park.

 

From 1972 onwards, a one-time entrance fee instead of all the attraction`s will cost one trip.

 

Slagharen had twice a Ferris wheel since 1973, befor the modern Chuck Wagon there was a Viennese Ferris wheel.

 

In 1981 a violent fire raged in the park, which was possibly lit. In this fire, the cowboy village "Texas in Holland" went up in flames also a theater, a monorail station with two trains, a merry-go-round and some other attraction`s where lost in the fire.

 

Unfortunately, the founder of the Park Henk Bemboom (93) died on 27 May in 2014.
