Amuse­ment parks


Ex­traordin­ary ca­rou­sels and rides

Not every family excursion needs to lead into nature, to the playground, or a bathing lake. Some aim high instead, driving up adrenaline levels. Amusement parks such as the Movie Park Germany in Bottrop or Phantasialand in Brühl offer high-tech rides, carousels, and exciting shows for action-loaded variety. One takes its guests into the Wild West, another has them climb the walls of the cooling tower of a planned power plant. An air of nostalgia may spread when the youngest family members are climbing into the ladybug roller coaster in front of the late Baroque backdrop.
