Jena turned out to be a very popular venue in the World Cup calendar, but as the V-style was invented, the old K111 hill design was made obsolete and the decision has been made to renew it. Due to the popularity of the competitions, Jena made a succesful bid for the organization of the 1993 Nordic World Ski Championships. As there was a need for a normal hill a K90 hill was built in place of the old k86 hill, which consumed most of the funds assigned for the hill complex, so the K111 hill had to be modernized into a K120 hill at a relatively low cost. The reprofiled large hill turned out to be a big hit both for fans and for the jumpers, as the profile allowed for very long flights. After the 1993 NWSC, World Cup competitions were held on this hill yearly from 1994 to 2007. The 2007 WC competitions were the most epic ones, as the jury allowed flights near 150 meters. Unfortunately then FIS decided that this was too dangerous, and so the hill had to be modernized again.
