Heide Park Resort – Northern Germany's largest family

amusement park turns every day into a fantastic adventure

Whether you are a family, an adrenalin junkie or on a short break,

Heide Park Resort offers entertainment and fun for every kind of

adventurer. In 2012, young people and action fans will particularly

get their money's worth. With Germany's first dive coaster, called

KRAKEN, and the new chamber of horrors named KRAKEN alive!,

guests will experience a package of thrills unique in Germany in

the form of a roller coaster and a new dimension of horror



Step inside and experience fantastic adventures: Race downhill at 120

km/hour on Colossos, the world’s fastest and tallest wooden rollercoaster, or

take on daring challenges in the Bucht der Totenkopfpiraten (Bay of the Skull

Pirates). Heide Park offers endless possibilities for spending a fun-filled day with

the whole family, all within 850,000 square meters of parkland.

Depending on adventurousness, age, and thirst for thrills, each visitor to

Northern Germany's biggest family and leisure park selects their own individual

experience from more than 50 attractions and shows. The 40+ rides available off

all levels of entertainment, from leisurely and pleasant to fast and breathtaking.

You can plunge into the deep in a free fall at lightning speed on Scream, the

highest gyro drop tower in the world. Amusement park fans can experience the

world upside down on the suspended-loop ride Limit, blast down an ice channel

track as fast as an arrow on the Swiss bobsled ride, or rock through rugged

mountain landscapes on the white-water ride.

With shining eyes children excitedly ride on the Wichtelhausenbahn (the Elf

House ride) or the Roten Baron (the Red Baron) and sometimes get totally

soaked on the mountain rafting ride. Don't forget the vast adventure playground

for romping and climbing, the popular Kindermeile (Children's Mile) for the very

small ones, and the children's free-fall tower Screamie as well as the brand new

Lucky Land for adventurous cowboys and Indians. Whether walking acts,

jugglers, or pirates - in the fantastic adventure world of Heide Park Resort,

entertainment is at the top of the list. On stage at the Bay of the Skull Pirates, a

highly engaging pirate show featuring stunts, comedy and acrobatics and the

colourful comics with Wumbo & Co. brings a smile to visitors' faces, both young

and old.

The Holiday Camp, which opened in May 2005, is also very popular. Located

directly at the park, a holiday oasis with a Caribbean surfing atmosphere has

taken shape. Families and groups as well as solo visitors can come here after a

busy day to either relax or have even more fun. 81 colourful wooden houses with

comfortable heating and 536 beds offer good value accommodation in a relaxed

atmosphere. While the kids frolic in the adventure playground, adults can enjoy

cocktails at the beach bar or comfortably sit together at the 300 seats provided

in the camp’s central area. In addition, there are communal picnic areas for

barbecueing in the evening as well as karaoke and dancing in the Beach Club to

get visitors into a holiday mood. Sports fans have not been forgotten either: a

beach soccer field, a volleyball court and table tennis tables offer multiple

opportunities to get active. Free parking, a small store, game rental at the

reception and a modern lavatory building with central in-floor heating are also

available for use.

On 29th June 2007, Heide Park Resort made history with the opening of the first

ever themed hotel in Northern Germany. The Port Royal Hotel is a unique pirate

castle that appeals to families as well as conference guests and adventure-

seeking visitors with very special attractions: the treasure island under the

themed hotel offers its guests 166 themed, family-friendly rooms, a buffet

estaurant called La Tortuga which serves breakfast, business lunches, and

dinner, the pirate bar Captain Hook, and a small à la carte restaurant. Divisible

conference rooms and a market place with indoor and outdoor stages are also

available. Like in the olden days, pirates on leave can retire to their impregnable

fortress here to recover from their strenuous raids, meet fellow adventurers of all

kinds and have fun in every possible way.

Some highlights of the past few years: In 2009, Maya Valley was opened, an

archaeologically-themed adventure area with seven rides waiting to be

conquered by the whole family. In particular, La Ola the wave-rider, who honours

his own name at lofty heights, enjoys a dizzying popularity. Only those who

confront the challenge and defeat the gods of the Mayas will escape their


Since 2010, pirates of all ages have experienced fantastic adventures in the Bay

of Skull Pirates. Everyone gets caught and everyone gets wet on the splash-

battle ride called ToPiLauLa. This interactive attraction invites all Skull Pirates to

take up water cannons on boats and on land to fend off the onslaught of the

lousy landlubbers - a real pirate battle!

New in 2012: Germany's first dive coaster KRAKEN, that has been making

waves with the pirates since last year, has now got some back-up in the form of

the multi-dimensional chamber of horrors KRAKEN alive!. As a double bill, these

two independent attractions provide a packet of thrills for young people and

action-seekers that is unique in Germany; the beast on the hunt for pirates lives

both on the roller coaster and in the horror ride. While KRAKEN plunges its

occupants straight down from a spectacular height directly into the mouth of the

beast, KRAKEN alive! promises guests the fright of their lives with its live scares

and special effects. Visitors have the clock running against them in this seven-

roomed attraction that is styled as a ship wreck, while the beast, KRAKEN,

threatens to tear down the sinking ship. Those who manage to escape to

freedom will hopefully take one of their best and most intensive shock

experiences home with them as a souvenir.

The 2012 season at Heide Park Resort goes from 31st March to 4th November.
