The latest "XXL" fun house to debut in Germany is themed, Fuzzy's Lach Saloon. It is owned by showman Rico Rasch. It was built by ride manufacturer Ride Technic of the Czech Republic.

After going through the fun house, patrons have the option of exiting down the large spiral slide or via the mini free fall tower. It also has a "Sky Walk" (elevated platform that goes out over the midway).
