Submitter’s comments: Having attended the texass state fair, I came away with some things to look up… ride manufacturers!
I think that without a question Andernoch/Bruch/Düsseldorf comes in first. I visited their site and found an amazing number of things to be disgustingly scary.
The content area is about 90px.
On pretty much every page you view, there is sort of band of grayed out pictures. One would expect this to be a visual relief; however, it is actually MORE navigation. So, in addition to the existing navigation, there is also entire separate unlabeled navigation bar. And under this navigation bar on select pages there is another navigation bar. Holy shit! These guys just can’t get enough navigation.
On top of the poor usability, this site is like Photoshop-land! Every single page is a veritable carpet bomb of poorly airbrushed images, and badly designed logos; this site is the gift that keeps on taking. I’m sure you’ll continue accidentally locating new pages in this heap of crap.
Vincent Flanders’ comments: The grayed out pictures are actually Mystery Meat Navigation, a term I’m proud to have coined.
As far as I can tell, the only way to find their content is to go to the sitemap and click either “Bilder” or “Technik” under the different rides.
This German site sucks. Or as Google Translate says, “Diese Website saugt.”
