Northern Germany’s biggest and best leisure park offers a magnificent world of adventure to be discovered spread over 850,000 square metres. Colossos, the world’s fastest and highest wooden roller coaster; thrilling shows in the Bay of the Pirate’s Skull, the Desert Race catapult-start roller coaster; Scream, the world’s highest gyro-drop tower: along with countless other rides and facilities, these make for an outstanding day out for the whole family. The park’s short-break destinations include the four-star pirate outpost Hotel Port Royal, as well as the Caribbean-themed Holiday Camp. Heide Park Resort upped the stakes once again recently by opening its latest big attraction, the KRAKE – Germany’s first dive coaster – in spring 2011. Heide Park Resort is part of the British Merlin Entertainments Group, which owns numerous other leisure facilities such as Alton Towers, Legoland, Sea Life and the Madame Tussauds waxwork exhibitions.
