Hi-Sky München celebrates "topping-out ceremony"
Munich. Only five weeks to go before ‘Hi-Sky München’, the world’s biggest transportable Ferris wheel, celebrates its maiden ride. The gigantic masts of the new attraction meanwhile tower up into the sky above the Werksviertel-Mitte district, right next to the Ostbahnhof station, and already give an idea of the ‘Hi-Sky’s’ dimensions. Operator ‘Hi-Sky Consulting GmbH’, a member of the Motorworld Group, took the opportunity of this ‘topping-out ceremony’ of a different kind to publish the prices for rides on the ‘Hi-Sky’ for the first time. Alongside numerous special experiences, Munich’s citizens can look forward to discounts and special offers. Providing the construction continues on schedule, nothing will stand in the way of the public opening on April 14, 2019.
Residents of the Bavarian state capital in particular can look forward to their new Ferris wheel as they will be entitled to special discounts upon presentation of their identity card. For example, a 30-minute ride on the ‘Hi-Sky’ will only cost them 12.50 euros instead of the regular price of 14.50 euros. Corresponding discounts for Munich’s citizens are also planned for special experience rides on the Ferris wheel, which incidentally will also be the biggest in Germany. “The ‘Hi-Sky’ should become part of the state capital and stand for beautiful, one-off memories,” says Arantxa Dörrié, Managing Director of the operating company. That’s why passengers will be able to book experience packages right from the opening day on Sunday, April 14, 2019.
As well as spectacular views over the whole of Munich on the one hand and towards the Alps on the other, these packages will offer truly special moments. With the support of local exclusive caterer Minga Catering, the ‘Hi-Sky Minga’ and ‘Monaco’, for example, will provide additional culinary delights during the ride with a richly filled picnic basket replete with either Bavarian or Italian specialities (price per package for 2 persons on a 60 minute ride: 180 euros). A veal sausage breakfast, the ‘Hi-Sky Blau Weiss’ (price per package for 6 persons, 60 minutes: 360 euros) is certain to become a popular choice. Anyone who wants to learn more about the city during the ride can book the ‘Hi-Sky Guided’ package, and be accompanied in the gondola by a city guide, who will tell passengers everything they want to know about Munich (price per person, 30 minutes: 17.50 euros, Munich residents 15.50 euros). “Be it a conference in the gondola or a marriage proposal – we can also offer bespoke experiences,” continues Dörrié. The 20-strong ‘Hi-Sky team’ will then take care of the suitable outfitting and decoration of the gondolas (prices on request).
