The Heide Park Resort in Soltau is northern Germany’s largest theme park, boasting fun for all the family with over 50 attractions and shows. Visitors aged as young as three can test their mettle in the themed “dragon taming” world, while the children’s “Wüstenflizer” gives youngsters the chance to drive through a desert oasis and take on various obstacles as they go.

The park attracts visitors from far and wide with some truly top-notch attractions. With a vertical drop of 71 metres, the gyro drop tower “Scream” is the world’s tallest. Luckily, underage youngsters can take on the child-friendly alternative “Screamie”, which clocks in at a slightly more moderate 12.6 metres. The Heide Park Resort is also home to Germany’s only wing coaster – the “Flug der Dämonen” coaster sees passengers zip past seven obstacles at speeds of up to 100 km/h. The Dämonen Gruft has been located right next door since March 2024. This is Germany's scariest dark ride experience. Colossos, the highest and fastest wooden roller coaster in Europe, has also been back in operation since April 2019. After a three-year break, the coaster shines in new splendour under the title "Clash of the Giants".

Dead pirates, Ghostbusters and a catapult start

In the “Dead pirates’ bay” themed area, visitors can try KRAKE – Germany’s first drive coaster. After being pulled for 41 metres across Heide Park Lake, the cars plunge vertically into the deep at 103 km/h. If you need refreshment on hot summer days, the “Mountain Rafting” wild water ride is just the ticket – think waterfalls, vortexes and raging rapids galore.

Visitors aged six and over can also enter the interactive “Ghostbuster 5D” haunted house if they dare. Armed with a laser proton gun, ghost traps and 3D glasses, you can fight side by side with the Ghostbusters against a band of sliming ghosts.

The “Desert Race” rollercoaster features a catapult start, accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.4 seconds, launching you on a white-knuckle tour through the sandy desert dunes. In comparison, Totenkopf Lake is an oasis of calm which can be explored on rafts as you watch the resident bird life.

Short breaks at the Heide Park Resort

The Heide Park adventure hotel offers 164 themed rooms with a sauna area and leisure pool. Room themes include pirates, daemons, western, dragons, Ghostbusters and jungle for a truly unique accommodation experience. The Holiday Camp is also home to colourful wooden huts with space for up to twelve people, while retro fans can spend the night in renovated original T2 camping vans in the Bulli Camp. Companies can even hire themed seminar rooms for special events here.

Historical Information

Hans-Jürgen Tiemann opened the theme park in 1978 on the site of the former Heidenhof wildlife park. The park originally only featured six rides but has been expanded on an annual basis ever since.

In 2002, one year after building the world’s largest wooden rollercoaster, the English Tussauds Group acquired the park. Unfortunately, the wooden rollercoaster is currently undergoing renovation work for an unspecified period of time. In 2007, Heide Park became part of the Merlin Entertainments Group and has since been rebranded as Heide Park Resort.
