Boasting over 60 attractions across eight themed areas, Belantis Theme Park just south of Leipzig in the Leipzig Lake District is the largest theme park in eastern Germany.
Even the names of the themed areas sound exciting: "Valley of the Pharaohs", "Beach of the Gods", "Island of the Knights", "Coast of the Explorers" and "Prairie of the Indians" are just some of the Belantis worlds that visitors can explore.
There is plenty to keep even young visitors entertained in the various themed areas. They can head off on a desert expedition, take part in a temple rally or compete in the "Tour de Franz" on a wobbly bike. Bigger thrill seekers will be in their element too, rising to the challenge of the Huracan rollercoaster and its five loops or controlling the wings of their own plane on the Flight of the Gods ride. The site's lakes provide the perfect opportunity for a ride in a Native American canoe.
