Although it is not a major "destination" theme park, Movie Park Germany is a very nice, miniature version of Universal Studios, with stylized versions of the Wild West, New York City, Nickelodeon, and, of course, Hollywood--with a bit of sci-fi and fantasy for good measure.
The coasters are a mediocre lot (Bandit is downright bad), but much of the park is nicely themed, and a high percentage of attractions that families can enjoy together, including the very good Ice Age Adventure boat ride and the large selection of Nick-themed rides. Star Trek: Operation Enterprise is a step in the right direction but Movie World really needs one or two "big" attractions to put it on the map, but you can spend a very enjoyable morning or afternoon there.
