when i lived in germany(my dad is military), my parents took us to holiday park, and europa park. for me, both were lots of fun. if you looking for a coaster park, i think europa park has more coasters.

either way, both parks are mostly the same as american parks, only a different language.

Europa park is a must for anyone that loves theming and fun coasters. Europa is located in Rust, Germany.

Ummmm.....Sean--Did you forget that small orange coaster that we rode for an hour and a half during ERT? I could see how easy it is to forget Expedition Ge Force at Holiday Park in Hassloch, Germany. This drop really wasnt that memorable and the layout is something to be left desired! j/k

If you are going to Germany, make sure you hit both Europa Park and Holiday Park. I actually recommended Europa Park to some of my customers, and when they returned, they indeed went to Europa! They totally loved it. I mean how can you not!? They take themeing to the next level on all their rides and throughout the park, its simply amazing!

Enjoy Germany with you grandsons G-Force!

Both parks discussed are more in the northern part of South Germany.

I don't know how many you parks you can visit, but here are the best parks overthere:
- Europa-Park, Rust (Black Forrest, but near the French border)
- Holiday-Park, Hassloch (in the Pfalz area)
- Legoland, Gunzburg (much more to the east)
You can also visit MovieWorld (Warner Bros.), Phantasialand and Tripsdrill...but those parks are more to the north and if you don't have much time it's nearly impossible.

I think Europapark is a good park for Grandsons... and also their Grandpas!
It's a very family-oriented park with the focus on fun. Even Silverstar, the tallest steel coaster in Europe, is designed to be family friendly, and not that fear-inducing.

Europa Park is very close to my hometown, Freiburg. It's down in the south-west of Germany, close to the French border.

Holiday park is more for people looking for machines to turn your stomach upside down and thrillriders... They always have much more "scary" type of attractions than Europapark... they continuously had the most thrilling coasters of any park in Germany over the last decades.

Of course... now there's also Colossus at Heide Park Soltau, in the more northern part of Germany, which is supposed to be one of the best rides you can get in Germany... next to Expedition G-force.

Nope. I didn't forget it, but if I only had one day to spend a day at a park, Europa would probably be it for me. That's not to say I was dissapointed in Expedition, I just found Europa to offer more things to do.

Heide-Park is Norther Germany, not Southern Germany! :)

You could visit Europa-Park or Holiday-Park or Tripsdrill or perhaps even the fabulous Legoland Deutschland. I personally prefer Europa-Park, and absolutely dislike Holiday-Park. But opinions differ on this point.. :)
