Erlebnisberg Sternrodt (2011)

About 15 km from Willingen in the Hochsauerland is the village of Sternrodt, where you will find an Alpine Coaster of the manufacturer Wiegand on the Erlebnisberg with the Sternrodler. For a price of 2€30 you can take a ride as an adult, but apart from some curves and straights the ride has hardly any elements worth mentioning.

The speed that one can reach on the track is absolutely ok, but unfortunately the drive can be ruined very quickly by a sneak. Since this is a sports facility, you can regulate the sleds independently, which can cause long delays and traffic jams, especially due to anxious people. You can guess what happened. Accordingly, my credo is that it is best to ban these persons from all rides of this kind.

However, the Sternrodler is on the whole rather one of the weaker installations of this kind of summer toboggan run, in terms of ride quality it is even more boring than the Weserberglandbob and by far worse than the Alpine Coaster at the Alpincenter in Bottrop, which is more convincing by its location alone. For a little stopover, a ride in Sternrodt is at least nice; but that’s it.

Alpine Coaster am Alpincenter Bottrop (2011)

After a successful fight against vampires in the newly opened Van Helsing’s Factory, we headed towards the city of Bottrop to visit the Alpincenter, located on a mountain with a considerable gradient.

The Alpincenter is quite well accepted, which surprised me a bit. The prices are a little high for some activities (for example for the seemingly easy high ropes course). Besides the usual activities on and around the ski slopes, there is the possibility to go indoor airdiving, play paintball or ride an Alpine Coaster.

The latter has a length of one kilometre and has some nice sections, including a steep curve that is a real challenge. During the ride you have to struggle with the vegetation in places, as some plants have decided to grow along the track. The ride itself is not bad and can therefore be taken along with you on your next visit to the theme park in Feldhausen.

Towards the end of the ride the weather worsened massively and thus we went on the lift towards the meanwhile very black clouds. Shortly before the end it started to rain slightly, before suddenly a quite strong storm broke out. Thereupon nobody was allowed on the lift for the time being and I raced to the car and even though it was only a few meters I got completely soaked.
