Postby Hhappy » Sat Apr 24, 2010 2:16 pm

What a cute little park! Speed Snake is an AWESOME name for a coaster... :) Was Wild Eagle an upcharge attraction?

As far as i could see the Wild Eagle was not an upcharge ride. According to a sign you had to hand over 1 euro.. but i'm not 100% sure what for.
Looks like you would get a certificate after riding it.. and i assume this would pay for the costs of making those.
I did not get to ride it since it was closed when i finished my tour to the top of the hill..

I guess i'll have to go back someday..

Wild Eagle looks awesome and so does the rest of the park and your photos. That giant box was DarkRaver (As seen from the photo), and inside was a Round-up ride with its own theme music... scratch that, LOUD theme music! From the looks of someone's youtube video, it is probably the coolest round-up ever! (Spoiler Alert: This video is a pov of the ride taken by a random youtuber.) Link to youtube video.

I had never heard of this place before. Thanks for sharing this report!

What exactly does the Wild Eagle do? I can't really figure out where the ride ends/goes from the pictures.

Nice trip report, and the parks looks like a fun place to visit with lots of random attractions. It definitely looks like a great family park where people could spend a day, and it's a shame that we don't have more places like it her in the United States.

Wild Eagle looks like a lot of fun, and it is something that I can see showing up at Dollywood in the future.

Hanno - you know I'm always happy with a Photo TR from a new park.
As usual, my analysis is free of charge!

Dbru-I believe it was made by the same company that made the ill-fated Vertigo. It is like a cable guided hang glider. You just go down a slope in a straight line and I think (or guess) that they pull you back up to the tower.

Nice pics of this park! I'd only heard of it. Also, they painted the speed snake like a milk snake (probably better as a coral snake which is white/yellow-red-white/yellow-black-white/yellow etc.). Are milk snakes common in this part of Germany?
Some people are like slinkies. They aren't really good for much but still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
