Amusement ride shut down; people see swastikas.


A new ride at a German amusement park recently raised quite a few eyebrows on social media for its bizarre design. Now the ride, called the Adlerflug or “Eagle’s Flight,” will reportedly be shut down after so many people pointed out the obvious: The ride looks like two giant swastikas.

Rüdiger Braun, the director of the park, has apologized for the swastika ride and insisted to the local Bild newspaper that, “We didn’t notice the gondolas are in the form of a swastika. It wasn’t obvious from the manufacturer’s sketches.”

Braun has reportedly proposed giving the ride three “spinning eagles” instead of four, which he says, "will have this problem under control."
