Not far from the city of Verden an der Aller is the Magic-Park and therefore the only place in the triangle of Bremen, Hamburg and Hannover where there was something new for me to ride. The park is a similar children’s paradise like the Rasti-Land, which is 40 km away from Hanover, but gives a much better impression, even if the number of attractions here is a bit smaller.
Much of this park was bought second-hand and so it is not surprising that you sit in the former Seeschlange roller coaster of Hansa Park when riding the Familienachterbahn. Even if the train creeps a little over the hills, the ride within this family roller coaster with its four laps special is very entertaining. In direct comparison with the sister park in Hodenhagen this ride does a lot better.
A few meters aside the roller coaster is the log flume Wildwasserbahn of the Magic-Park, whose manufacturer is Big Country Motioneering Ltg. The track is very similar to an oval, only you have to pass some small curves before the chain lift. The first and only drop is very convincing and the degree of wetness is high.
Since a small park in Germany can hardly do without dinosaurs, there are some specimens here, too, but they were placed quite well and thus give the miniature golf course of the park a certain finishing touch. It’s just a pity that the courses do not make the best impression.
You can feel just like in the Dutch amusement park Efteling when you follow the fairytale trail. On the edge of the path you will find a total of six elaborately designed scenes that are brought to life by numerous animatronics. The individual fairy tales are also very well presented, even if I didn’t know the fairy tale about the flower miracle until now.
Past the ship swing Schiffschaukel, which you can operate yourself, we now go to the large playground part of the amusement park, where you can find some interesting play equipment, a vintage car ride and the Drachenbahn (a small monorail) from Metallbau Emmeln. Normally, every child should be able to use up his or her remaining energy in this part of the park.
For the roller coaster fans among us it is recommended to visit the park from 15:30 p.m., because then the entrance fee is only 10€ or nothing at all if there is nobody in the cash area. Also one could serve free drinks at the right moment, as at some snack stands there was nobody to be found. As I am honest I waited of course. Unfortunately many small amusement parks seem to want to do without money.
