A visit to Taunus Wunderland

Taunus Wunderland

Taunus Wunderland in Schlangenbad near Wiesbaden is a medium-sized family amusement park. The park was opened in 1966 by the Maxeiner family as a fairy tale forest and petting zoo. The first attractions moved into the park in 1998, when the showman Otto Barth took over the park.

Quite quickly after the takeover by the Barth family, one of the family’s Wild Mouse roller coasters found its way into the park. In 2001, the construction of the large log flume by Mack Rides followed. Starting in 2016, the small amusement park was restructured into a proper theme park. The themed areas of Opa Alfreds Dinotal, Rosis Zuckerwatteland and Onkel Bernds Bauernhof are all quite successful and have a very different charm than the loosely placed fairground rides before.

Wilde Maus

The main attraction of the Rosis Zuckerwatteland themed area is the Wilde Maus family roller coaster, which towers over all the other attractions due to its hillside location and thus offers a great view of the surroundings. The ride itself is a classic of German funfairs and is thus a guarantee for a good time.


At the rear end of the park is the entrance to the Grape Slide. The log flume from Mack Rides scores with its high shot at the end of the ride. Before that, the boat bobs a few meters through the canal and turns a lap around the lift before it is sounded. Once at the top, two turntables and a very short backward passage in between await the guest. This is followed by the final plunge into the cool water, whereupon the ride comes to an end.


The entrance to the small roller coaster Kuhddel-Muuuhddel is located slightly below the log flume Traubenrutsche. The spinning coaster from SBF Visa turns several laps through the short layout, which can be very entertaining due to the rotation of the gondola, which is very easy to spin depending on the load.


Other highlights in the park are the small break dance from SBF Visa, a tube slide and the small free fall tower Knall und Fall by abc rides. Currently, a new themed area is being constructed directly by the entrance, where, among other things, a Mondial Top Scan, a true thrill machine, will move into the park. Likewise, the Galaxie Express from the former Space Center Bremen will finally find a new home in Taunus Wunderland.

Conclusion Taunus Wunderland

The Taunus Wunderland surprised me a little. The themed areas are all really nicely designed and have a pleasant flair. The future expansions of the amusement park already make me want more, so I’ll be happy to stop by.

Odenwaldbob (2016)

On my way back from Stuttgart to Hamburg I stopped with all my belongings at the summer toboggan run Wald-Michelbach, which was somehow on the way. The Odenwaldbob can hardly be overlooked on the way there, after all, one winds up the mountain halfway parallel to the Kreidacher Höhe.

In a slightly sloping right turn you leave the station and pick up some speed on a straight line. After a short left-hand bend, you now cross a country road and, after a drop, plunge directly into a left-hand roundabout. At full throttle, you now make several small right/left turns and immediately after that a wide right turn. After a left-hand bend, the ride continues downhill at high speed via several jumps parallel to the lift hill of the ride. After a short left turn, a right turn follows in a slightly serpentine fashion, which then merges into the second roundabout of the ride. This releases you into a wide right turn parallel to the slope, which then releases you into two hairpin bends and shortly afterwards into the braking section. This is followed by the return to the station.

Although the track is consistently equipped with brake swords of different materials resulting in different braking effects of the magnetic brakes on the bobsled, the ride on the Odenwaldbob is consistently fun and you never really had the feeling of being too slow, especially compared to conventional rides with centrifugal brakes on the sled like the Trapper Slider at the Fort Fun Abenteuerland amusement park. The 1000m long downhill run has a good mix of different elements, which makes it dynamic until the end and therefore a lot of fun.
