|Heide Park has some good coasters, but until Colossus, the first Intamin pre-fabricated wooden coaster, is fixed fans will be bitter with the park. Desert Race is a launched Intamin steel coaster in a compact format. Krake is the first B&M Dive coaster on the European mainland. Flug der Dämonen is the first B&M Wing Coaster in Germany|
Huss fans refer to one area of the park as Hussland, as it houses many Huss creations (Breakdance, Rainbow, Top Spin, Condor, Enterprise, Flipper, and Magic). Heide is also known for having many rides in duplicate (Flume, Pirate Ship, Monorail). The park is fairly spaced out and worth the time to explore every corner. The park also has a moderately challenging ropes course
A newer area to the park is themed to "How to Train Your Dragon" for the kids.
|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.|

|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! |

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).

|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|
