Ninja training in Legoland


What do you do if you are a fan of the Sky Fly rides of the manufacturer Gerstlauer and completely disregard the opening hours of the Holiday Park in advance but are already in Darmstadt? Certainly not the way back of 500 km to Hamburg, when you can also have a way back of about 1000 km, but with one or the other ride. Surely you shouldn’t make this decision at 10 o’clock in the morning, so that you don’t reach Legoland Deutschland until the afternoon due to the rather modest condition of the south German motorways. At the entrance to the parking lot we found out that the rides close already one hour before the actual closing time of the park, so we only had about 90 minutes left for the park and Flying Ninjago.

Legoland Deutschland

Tempel X-Pedition

In 2013, a good three years after Legoland Billund, the dark ride Tempel X-Pedition opened at Legoland Deutschland, where you can go on an interactive treasure hunt through the Egyptian temple armed with pistols in search of the tomb treasure of the pharaohs. The ride is handsome and original, but a little too short. Although the rides in Billund and Günzburg are the same, the outdoor area here is much more convincing.

Flying Ninjago

In the same year in which the prototype of the Sky Fly rides was presented to the public in Nigloland, France, Flying Ninjago, the second ride of this type, was opened. Since then, the prototype, which was designed after the quite popular in-house animation series Ninjago, has been putting its more or less daring passengers upside down or not, but unfortunately without The Weekend Whip, the title music of the series, as soundtrack. Instead, you accumulate your rollovers under shallow Asian-sounding music, which can be numerous even without much practice. Unfortunately, the ride was operated without the last two rows for most of the time, so that there was some waiting time in the otherwise empty park.

Halloween in Legoland

Interestingly enough, Halloween was already taking place at the time of our visit, which is why the medieval area was significantly redesigned and the Feuerdrache (fire dragon) was therefore shown in a different guise. Nearly all figures were transformed into ghosts with sheets and the soundtracks were deactivated or changed, but this limited the sense of the dark ride before the actual roller coaster part a bit. For the more courageous children there was also a little Maze, which was indeed operated during the week, despite the small crowd.

A few hours in the great miniature world

Legoland Deutschland

If you leave the motorway in the direction of Legoland Deutschland in the Bavarian town of Günzburg, you are immediately confronted with Lego on a large scale. Here you don’t spill, but rather make bricks and blocks, and that in the most figurative sense of all. Legoland Deutschland, which opened in 2002, is already the second Legoland on German soil, after Legoland Sierksdorf, today’s Hansa Park, was not necessarily blessed with success in the mid-1970s due to its proximity to the original Legoland in Billund.

Power Builder

Located directly in the entrance area, the Lego City, a special experience awaits the visitors on the Power Builder. Several robots from the Augsburg company Kuka, equipped with a passenger carrier, are standing around in a hall. The ride is more or less exciting depending on the intensity level (level 1 – 5) and can be either roll-over or non-roll-over depending on the age of the passengers. There is also a possibility to program the ride, but I doubt if the extrapolated sum of the different possibilities is true.


Shaken, you can now continue your tour in the direction of the local knights’ area. In the central castle lives a dragon, which now and then strays into the kitchen to eat something. The partly funny, but very simply knitted story belongs to the Feuerdrache (fire dragon), a big Force Coaster from Zierer with a nice dark ride section, which has a rather nasty drop at the end, especially in the back rows. The actual roller coaster part is driven through quite fast and can be a real test of courage for the little visitors.


Next door is the Drachenjagd (dragon hunt), a roller coaster from the nearby manufacturer Gerstlauer for the very young guests of the park, which has a very surprising first gradient, as the passengers are simply pulled to the right. But don’t worry, children are only allowed to sit on the left side of the train. The ride itself is small, but it’s fast and beautifully designed. Especially the little dragon on the roof, which is haunted by fire from time to time, is very well done.


Pure evil awaits you on the mountain and valley railway Raupenritt, an Old Train from the Mack company. The ride itself would be rock solid, especially since it does not only turn forwards but also backwards, in combination with design elements of the company Lego however an almost merciless torture machine is created – at least for the adults. Children enjoy even such a ride without limits.

Dschungel X-Pedition

To relax a bit I went on the log flume Dschungel X-Pedition, a Reverse Boat Ride made by Intamin. The ride is designed as an expedition and consists of two shots, the first of which is done backwards, passing dinosaurs and threatening plants. The general degree of wetness is quite manageable, so that a ride for somewhat larger children is certainly as much fun as for the water-shy parents.

Captain Nick’s Piratenschlacht

Almost next door is the pirate area of Legoland Deutschland, where young pirates can go to the Piratenschule (pirate school) on a Rockin’ Tug and then compete in Captain Nick’s Piratenschlacht. This is the prototype of the popular Splash Battle by Mack, which has a layout that is too far stretched in some places, which is why you unfortunately don’t meet your opponents that often and the degree of wetness is accordingly limited.

Sea Life Atlantis

Relatively new at the time of the visit was the Sea Life Atlantis, an aquarium with design elements of the sunken city of Atlantis. After watching a well animated Lego short film in German and English the gates to the lost city open. Unfortunately you are out as fast as you came in, which is typical for all Sea Life aquariums of the Merlin Entertainments Group.

Project X – Teststrecke

Close to the 4D cinema, where a larger selection of worth seeing Lego style animation films is shown, you will find the two water rondel Wellenreiter, the somewhat odd-looking cup ride with the inventive name Techno Schleuder, and the Wild Mouse roller coaster Project X – Teststrecke. Like the Matterhornblitz at Europa Park, this one has a slightly different layout, with the emphasis on the shots rather than the hairpin bends.


The other attractions of the park, which are mostly suitable for children, have all been wonderfully staged, but the highlight of every Legoland is, as is well known, the Miniland, which is beautifully laid out in the middle of Legoland Germany. It is quite big and can show a lot of European motives besides numerous German buildings.

Conclusion Legoland Deutschland

Legoland Deutschland is an extremely harmonious amusement park, which is well worth a visit, especially with younger children. Although adult visitors also get their money’s worth, one would have to ask oneself if the high prices still justify a visit. In connection with one or the other offer, one can visit the park without having to worry.
