There are four sit-down restaurants in the park: Panorama (the largest restaurant with many options), Brauhaus (serving traditional German food), Capitol (American specialties, including many varieties of burgers), and Small Smutje (which promotes its burgers and fish and chips). Of course, there are plenty of quick-service stands around the park.
The park is open from mid-April to October
Established Seasonal events

Access & Location
If you prefer to travel by car, simply follow the A7 and exit at "Soltau-Ost." Then follow the road signs to the pleasure park!
If you prefer to travel by rail, catch the train straight to Wolterdingen / Soltau and continue on foot: it's only 2.000 metres to Heide-Park. Or take the train straight to Soltau from Hamburg, Hanover, or Bremen.
You can catch the bus straight to Heide Park from Wolterdingen and Soltau railway stations.
It's really easy to get to the Heide-Park by bus and train. There are bus connections from Wolterdingen and Soltau stations (Prüser Buses) and direct connections from Hamburg (KVG), Lüneburg (KVG), and Hanover (Enders).
You can find a map of all the routes covered by the traditional "Heide Train" on the "Heide Train" page. Please refer to the "Heide Train" website at
The park has three options. Abenteuer Hotel is a fabulous four-star hotel with five different types of themed rooms. Holiday Camp offers Caribbean-themed bungalows for families accomodating 2-12 people. The verdict is still out on the newly added Bulli Camp, which features accomodations for two in VW buses
Virtual Queue Options
Heide Park offers "Express Butler" an electronic Fast Pass system using Lo-Q technology at Gold and Platinum levels.
The park's longest-running shows are for children. However, the park also has a couple of fast-paced action shows for a broader audience: Gold of Port Royal (pirate themed) and Anger of Mayas (archeologist upsets the natives).
Thrill-seekers will have a god day. You'll find an awesome wood-coaster and some other great thrill-rides there (Scream!). The log flumes are worth a visit as well! But in the end, it all appears to be a little loveless. Coaster-traditionals and well-known flat rides as far the eye can see. 'We've got some place left? Okay, lets build a coaster there! We don't need to do something unique, we just need a little bit of everything'. I always thought the park could be a little cleaner. However, I don't like it very much. But this is just my opinion.
A great mid-sized German park. Colossos, Desert Race, and Bobbahn are pretty high up on my list. While Limit has to be one of my most painful ride experiences, I was pleasantly surprised to find that Big Loop didn't deliver any head banging and was actually an enjoyable ride!
They also have plenty of flats to keep you busy, including a great Intamin drop tower and an assortment of Huss flats.
Don't miss the flumes, they are landscaped and themed so well!
I was last there in August of 2011 and had another great day. The new Krake dive coaster is a blast, (albeit a bit short). Even though the crowds were light, they were still running 3 trains and it was a walk-on all day long. I have never seen them run less than 3 trains on the awesome Schweizer Bobbahn coaster, either. Always two trains on Desert Race as well. Strangely enough, they seem to only run single trains on all other coaster, including Colossus, which can lead to long waits. Colossus is still one of my top woodies, although it is starting to get somewhat rough in the valleys... There is great bus transportation to the park from Hamburg, with the round trip journey and park entrance costing €38, which is a real bargain!
