The Heide Park Resort Soltau in Lower Saxon is one of the largest German leisure and theme parks with 850,000 square meters. There are spectacular attractions such as the famous "Octopus" or "Kolossos".
The Heide Park Resort is ideal for a trip with the whole family. The Heide-Park Express, a little train which runs through the park and gives visitors a first impression, starts directly behind the entrance. There are various breakpoints. The journey by train gives you the possibility of a first overview.
The Park is divided into several subject areas: 'Pirates Bay', 'Land of the lost', 'Wild Wild West' and 'Transylvania' - all areas offer fast-paced thrill as well as quiet and child-friendly attractions.
Altogether 40 different rides and numerous live shows are offered to the visitors. '‘Colossos', for example is the highest wooden roller coaster in Europe. The height of 60 meters, top speeds of 110 km/h - a ride with 'Colossos' is a must for all coaster fans (minimum age 12 years).
All this fun and adventure makes you hungry of course. Between the visits, you can dine and get refreshments at one of the restaurants and snack stations. You can also bring your own provisions.
There is a new attraction from March 2014: Germany's first wing coaster opened at Heide Park Resort Soltau - it offers an entirely adrenaline kick for all fans of loop-the-loops and breakneck speed.
Of course, there are also less exciting attractions. For small children, there are, for example the 'Comic Puppet Theater', the colourful 'Pixie Town Train' or the 'Fairytale Ride'.
Dogs are welcome at the park. They can be brought along if kept on a leash.
A day at Heide Park Resort Soltau is a big fun for young and old! The price quality is reasonable; the park is very nice and leaves nothing to be desired.
