Movie Park Germany

During the summer we like to make a trip over to Germany and spend a day at Movie Park.  It has fairly reasonable prices, and there is generally some kind of coupon or discount if you look for it.

Besides the decent prices there is plenty for the adults and adventurous kids.  There are at least 7 fast rides including roller coasters that even the little ones can go on.  Our daughter went on her 1st intense roller coaster at Movie Park when she was 3!  (She's a bit of an adrenaline junky... she went on Space Mountain at Disney when she was 4!)

Our daughters favorite part of the entire park is Nick Land of course and the Dora log flume is top of her list.  For the less adventurous kids there are slower rides, two playgrounds, and a handful of shows.  The parade is on the weak side, but the character show & stunt show are worth it.  And of course there is plenty of yummy treats along the way.

For the adults there are 3 large roller coasters and 4 other intense rides.  And for the entire family a couple 3D/4D rides.  My favorite ride is definitely the Van Helsing rollercoaster, it's fast & partially in the dark so you never know which direction you'll go!

The park tries to convince you to return for a 2nd day, but I feel you really can do everything in 1 day if you're willing to buy a Speedy Pass.  Instead of waiting 1 hour per ride, you can whip through the park not missing a thing.  We highly recommend the Speedy Pass, we've tried both Silver & Gold... you just have to read the details and decide which one works for you.

This time at the park my husband convinced me to go on one of these trampolines that soars you high in the air thanks to harnesses.  He would have done it himself but he weighed too much, see it's actually for kids but I met the weight requirements and convinced them to let me on.  And to be honest, wow, it's a little scarier than you imagine.  I pictured Cirque Soleil, and instead I flew around uncontrollably for a while.  Then went I attempted front flips, I ended up just screaming and wimping out halfway through.  But then I built up the nerve and finally did a back flip!  Once you get the feel of it the back flips are pretty easy.  (You can use your arms to pull yourself up & over.)  I would do it again, and definitely recommend it to the older kids!

So if you're ever in the area and looking for a fun summer day out, head over to Movie Park Germany!  (Only say summer because of the fun water rides, not something you want to miss out on because of the winter cold.)

Bye! Dag! Adios! Namaste!
