Enjoy a day out at Taunus Wunderland
A host of fun attractions awaits the whole family
at the Wonderful Taunus Wunderland.
Taunus Wunderland amusement park is located in the Taunus hills, in the pretty spa town of Schlangenbad, close to Wiesbaden and about half an hour’s drive from Frankfurt.
New this season: the Dino-Hochbahn
Knall+Fall (Rock and Drop Free Fall Tower)
The 17 meter high multi-motion tower went into operation in summer 2010. The first ride of its kind in Europe, passengers are transported up the tower while at the same time rocking from side to side; on reaching the top the tower leans forwards and after a sllght pause the gondola drops in free fall at a speed of 3 meters per second. The most modern security systems ensure absolute safety and fun and thrills for the whole family.
A host of rides for all ages
There’s a whole variety of rides, to suit different ages and temperaments: from fast, adventurous, scary to more gentle, magical, mysterious. Even the smallest child will enjoy a carousel ride, being a pirate, playing on a climbing frame, or challenging dad to a water fight. American Indians paddle their kayaks, dragons hide behind giant boulders, ghosts are lurking in the haunted house!
For the most adventurous, those who dare can plunge more than 22 meters down a giant water slide, the Wildwasserbahn. Who’s brave enough to ride the pirate ship, too scary for me? Listen to the screams! Or the Silberpfeil, the highest slide in the whole of Hessen. Or the Big Scooter, only for those who love the thrill of speed.
The Taunusblitz roller coaster is situated in the middle of a wood and the curves are gentle enough for the whole family but high and and steep enough to feel in your stomach and knees.
Young children will enjoy petting the tame animals in the petting zoo.
There are four different barbecue areas with seating for 150 people indoors and out. Use of the barbecues is free but they must be reserved in advance by calling 06124-4081 or by filling out the reservation form on www.taunuswunderland.de/grillplaetze.html
If you don't feel like grilling, you can eat in the cozy Panorama restaurant with its great views over the park. Or enjoy a snack such as hamburgers or corn-on the-cob from the snackbar or pancakes or waffles from the crèpe stand.
Celebrate children's birthdays at Taunus Wunderland with special children's menus in the Panorama restaurant - (advance reservations required).
