Hans Von Hofen's Freakadelic Circus's route to the 'hof has been unveiled!
Roll Up! Roll Up... Hans Von Hofen's Freakadelic Circus is coming to town. In the early hours of Saturday 1st April at the beautiful Ridge Golf Club in sunny Maidstone, Kent, and much like the scene of many Chaucerian tales, Kent road marks the beginning of an epic adventure... Here you'll arrive to a carnival atmosphere of performers, circus oddities, DJs, acrobats and the odd bearded lady (plus probably a fair few bemused golfers for goof measure), and get the chance to meet your fellow road trippers to start the ultimate mission to the mountains!
Here you can collect your SB wristband and grab a complimentary bacon roll and coffee before making your way to join the starting party, with yet more dance offs, games, competitions and much more freakishly fantastic fun. Hans Von Hofen will be making his first public appearance in aeons, in his official capacity as Road Trip ringmaster, and our motley crew of Snowbombing DJs will be giving you the ultimate send off before you head for the ferry! The game is afoot...
The Hotel - Gutentag Frankfurt!!!
After the ferry you’ll be heading full steam ahead for Frankfurt, your overnight pit stop! One of Germany's most flamboyant and free party capitals, this famous city is clearly the best possible place for our freaky carnival roadshow to stop off for the night. 2017 sees us partnering up with the esteemed Melia Hotels, offering a luxurious pitstop at the 4* QGreenHotel. The hotel is priced at just €60 ( single room inc breakfast) and €80 ( double inc breakfast), and also boasts free off road parking any SBRT17 participants. Plus, if you fancy a little livener on the Sunday morning ahead of an epic day of travelling and celebrating, the gym and sauna are free to use for all Roadtrippers. Wunderbar!
"Furnish your Fiat in Fancy Dress, stock up on Haribo, wind down the windows, stick your tongue out at sing along. They don't call it the open road for nothing..."
This is one roadside crib which will fill up faster than a freakshow itself, so make sure You book by 2nd March or run the risk of missing out on all the fun of the freakadelic circus!
We will be providing a special SBRT17 booking link in order for you to reserve your hotel room at the QGreenHotel. Please only book through this link and not direct as you will not get the special prices or included extras such as free parking and breakfast! We will be releasing the link very shortly!
PIT STOP PARTY
The infamous pit stop party is what makes the Road Trip really special. Legend has been written across various European cities and towns of the antics from Road Trips past, and this year it’s bigger and better than ever before. To kickstart your evening we welcome Bongo’s Bingo! The sedate British pastime has been given a new outrageous lease of life by turning into something more akin to a rather riotous rave. Hosted by the flamboyant Jonny Bongo, it's been selling out weekly in Liverpool, Manchester and Leeds for the past 18 months... And now it's confirmed for our manic mission to the mountains!
Prizes have included a sailing boat, a Porsche, mobility scooters and most incredibly... Boxes of Coco Pops. Jonny Bongo is known for hosting outrageous pub quizzes and holds the record for the biggest one ever (has someone told him we also own a few Guiness records ourselves...). Forget everything you thought you knew about Bingo because they’ll be heating up the Road Trip diesel style and you’ll love every second of it - (On a last note leave your nan at home for this one...)
Leading the night in to the later hours we have The Dance Off Crew preparing you for battle. This is YOUR chance to settle those road trip scores, let loose and show off. You’ll be stepping into to the Dance off boxing ring to do battle over three rounds where everything and anything goes as the DJs blast out tune after tune!
THE LAST LEG
The next day you’ll be setting off early but fear not your most bleary of bleary heads, our friends from Cool Bananas will be doing a special Wakey-Wakey-Rave-And-Shakey! This'll be just the ticket to get you in the mood, and fill you with more energy than a Duracell Bunny on Red Bull (and that is a fair amount of energy). Then, you'll be primed to begin the much fabled ascent to the mountains, as part of Hans' travelling band of lovable rogues, this motley crew of murky merry makers. This is your travelling circus, let's ensure it lives up to the legend!
Arriving in Mayrhofen to a heroes welcome!
And you’ve made it! The cars will congregate at the Horberg lift just outside Mayhofen, and ere you’ll celebrate with your new found friends for life and fellow freakadelics. Han’s will be down with a free BBQ for all, and you can also collect your certificate to prove your heroic journey on the Freakadelic Circus. At around 18:00 we will head in procession for the town centre for the welcome procession. Expect flocks of Snowbombers cheering you through the town, cow bells, false moustaches, several gaudy inflatables, an infectiously fun atmosphere... And Mistajam on the decks with a very special mix to bring you to your final destination.
After Party & Awards
At 20:00hrs the After party will be kicking off with Snowbombing’s favorite duo, Apexape. At 20:30 we will then be handing awards... The first prize is a whole trip to Snowbombing 2017 for your entire car! It's not as if you're not going to want to come again now is it...
All aboard for the most magical way to mission it to the mountains!
