Spreepark (DE)

Author sophos9 - Last updated: 09.05.2010

On 18 January 2002 Norbert Witte, together with his family and closest coworkers left for Lima in Peru. They shipped six attractions (“flying carpet”, “Butterfly”, “Spider”, “baby flight”, “game River” and “jet star”) in 20 ship containers, having been allowed to do so by the authorities who believed they were being sent for repair.

Since 2002 the park has not opened for visitors. In August 2002 the park was declared completely insolvent. Debts at a level of 11 million Euro remained and the area was allowed to fall into disrepair. The Ferris wheel still stands on the area as a reminder of the old days.

Norbert Witte failed in his attempt to run a “Lunapark” in Lima. On 19 May 2004 he was sentenced to seven years in jail for attempting to smuggle 180 kg of cocaine with a value of £14 million from Peru to Germany in the masts of the “flying carpet” ride. In October 2006 a Peruvian court sentenced Wittes’ son, Marcel Witte, to 20 years for drug smuggling.
