They're not just an attraction for kids and teens, Germany's theme parks are also record breakers when it comes to fun and speed.
Looking for thrills and spills? Then a visit to one of Germany's theme parks is guaranteed to deliver – whether you're enjoying one of the world's largest drop towers, the fastest wild water ride, or the scariest ghost train. Few other European countries have such a wealth of theme parks, many of which feature record-breaking attractions. Phantasialand near Cologne, for example, is the home of Taron, the world's fastest multi-launch rollercoaster, which also features the world's fastest launching system. At Europa-Park in Rust near Freiburg you will find Silver Star, one of Europe's longest and fastest rollercoasters. And if you prefer something a little more retro, why not visit Heide Park, situated between Hamburg and Hannover, for a ride on the world's highest and fastest wooden rollercoaster.
