A rainy day at Skyline Park

Skyline Park

With Bernd, his mother and his cousin we went to Skyline Park in Bad Worishöfen. This park is owned by the Löwenthal family of showmen, so it comes as no surprise that there are some former fairground rides in the park.


One of the cars is parked over the park’s entrance, while the others are still making their rounds on the Schwarzkopf roller coaster. As usual with the large Wildcat coasters, the ride is a lot of fun. Even more so when you ride it in the pouring rain. Unfortunately, we left the park a bit too early, otherwise we would have probably experienced a rollback and got stuck.

Formel 1

Right at the entrance to the park is a rather strange attraction. SBF Visa’s Formula 1 is basically a kart track with bumper cars. However, they are quite difficult to control, so the races are not that easy. In addition, you can drive in the typical bumper car manner and play with unfair means. Great fun for all the family!

Skyline Express

In addition to some rides from the park’s earlier history, such as some rides from the Heege catalogue, there is also a double Bavarian curve from BHS in this area, which can also be found at Hansa Park as the El Paso Express. Strangely enough, the lifting mechanism on the cars in the Skyline Express doesn’t work that well, so half of the train stays open, making for a very interesting ride.

Cinematrix 4D

Following Bernd, we entered a strange mine with various obstacles, which ended in a room with two rather strange looking devices. This simulator was showing a space film, which was played twice thanks to an emergency stop. Unfortunately, this emergency stop was almost before the end of the film and after the second time, not only Bernd felt sick. Unfortunately, the film did not fit in at all with the mine design of the waiting area in front of the simulator.

Swimming Pool

To take some of the strain off the body, the Wave Swinger was tested next to the park’s outdoor pool. It’s a good idea, but it wouldn’t hurt to expand it a bit and create the first German Summerland with a fully grown outdoor pool.

Bob Racing andSky Fall

The park has a very nice and original corner with an amazingly long, fast and well-designed bobkart track called Bob Racing. The Fabbri Jungle Jack Sky Fall, which is a bit off the beaten track, also benefits from this. This machine rides so crazy that it is bloody good. An orgy of airtime is guaranteed, as well as a fresh smile on your face.

Sky Rider

Nearby is a truly unique roller coaster, Sky Rider. The ride features rotating, swinging gondolas and a vertical lift, as well as no friction wheels inside the station. As a result, the ride is quite ingenious, and the swinging at the end of the ride is not to be underestimated.

Pirateninsel and Sky Twister

The Sky Wheel attracts visitors from far and wide, but to get to the coaster you have to cross a special feature: a field surrounded by an amusement park. Here, in the second part of the park, you can also find a bumper car made up of two different bumper cars, the Sky Circle, which is built at a different location every year, the Pirateninsel log flume, which can also be ridden backwards, and the former Heide-Park Condor, called Sky Twister.

Sky Wheel

The Sky Wheel itself is a rollercoaster experience that is difficult to describe. The moment before you are released from the upside down lift, gives you a strange feeling in your stomach, which returns to normal with the first roll. This is followed by a descent with wonderfully high centrifugal forces in the valley, before you fly backwards through the valley again. This is followed by a vertical brake before you either return to the station or get back up again. Compared to the longer version in Madrid, the ride is better just because of the backwards part.

Closing Words

Another special feature of Skyline Park is the many pirate-themed lakes. This is especially true of the Alte Liebe swing ride and many of the other attractions, but the park itself is somewhere between a very well themed amusement park and a classic funfair. Skyline Park is definitely worth a visit.
