At Allgäu Skyline Park near Bad Wörishofen in southern Germany, there’s plenty for adrenaline junkies and families alike. On top of the numerous amusements and rides, the park also puts on a wide-ranging and varied show programme throughout the summer months to ensure that there’s something for everyone here.
Adrenaline for Days
There are a number of top-notch rides for action fans here, including a couple of stand-outs: The 33-metre “High Fly” is the largest pendulum ride at any German theme park, while the “Sky Wheel” is the highest European rollercoaster with upside down sections. And as if that wasn't enough, a world first was also opened at the start of the 2017 season: the “Sky Dragster”. This is the world’s first interactive “motorbike coaster”, allowing you to control your own speed, with up to 60 km/h possible. The “Zero Gravity” is another great highlight new for 2017. In this huge centrifuge, visitors leave the floor behind and magically defy the forces of nature.
Fun for the Entire Family
Take to the sky with the entire family in the Free Fall Tower, climbing garden or Sky Spin rollercoaster, which features cars rotating on their own 360° axis. If you fancy a refreshing cool-down on hot summer days, then the Skyline Park also boasts several exciting water rides like the Water Splash, water scooters and waterslide fun pool. On top of that, there are also two log flumes and a wild water rafting ride to enjoy.
The park also has plenty to offer for younger kids, too. Budding drivers can get behind the wheel on the Formula 1 bumper cars, kids’ cars and funny cars, while young pirates can take to the air in pirate ships in the “Flight of the Caribbean” ride or explore the lake on children’s canoes. The Kid’s Farm and petting zoo is a more tranquil retreat from the action and a great place to spend some time.
Allgäu Skyline Park opened in 1999 on the former site of the Kirchdorf amusement park, which closed one year previous. The Löwenthal family of entertainers initially set up mobile amusements here with the long-term aim of making them permanent. Nowadays, the theme park offers more than 60 attractions across a roughly 25,000 square metre area.
