The RitterRost Magic Park Verden in Verden (Aller) is a small, family-run amusement park for the whole family. Originally the amusement park started in 1971 as a fairy tale park. The large scenes are still one of the highlights of the amusement park today. With new operators new ideas came and so the fairytale park became a park full of magic. In the meantime, however, with the cooperation of the Carlsen publishing house, a new concept seems to be being pursued and so the Magic Park became the RitterRost Magic Park. This is where the children meet their heroes from the well-known children’s books.

Fun Fact: The RitterRost Magic Park is a sister park of the Serengeti Park in Hodenhagen.

Some hours in Erse Park Uetze


After a few days in the city triangle of Bremen, Hamburg and Hannover, I went to the city triangle of Celle, Braunschweig and Hannover to visit the Erse Park in Abbeile, a small town just behind Uetze.

Originally I had planned to go to Potts Park near Minden, but I couldn’t get into the park because the highway A2 was closed due to a bomb clearance. After half an hour of traffic jam I decided to change my mind and make a small detour with a short stop on the way to Hamburg. Because my Navi did not save the park as a special destination (which surprised me very much, after all it knew the Magic Park in Verden), I finally found the right way after a little detour through Uetze.

Erse Park

When I arrived at Erse Park, I realized for the first time at a park of this size that they wanted my money after all. Here there was not only staff, moreover, they were very nice. The first impression promised a lot, which among other things was due to the beautiful park.

Reise in die Urzeit

A somewhat longer walk followed, past some exhibits of the primeval era, until you reach the first rides of the park. Here you will find with the Reise in die Urzeit a guided motorboat ride through primeval times, which was staged absolutely great, as well as an older Mack’s monorail, which you often find in amusement parks of the 70’s.

If you follow the path, you will soon find yourself in front of some fairy tale scenes that are more or less well done. You can clearly see the age of the scenes, and the same is true for the historical rides that are located in the immediate vicinity, which give a lovely impression.


Meanwhile, things are getting really strange with the shaky Wackeltaxis from Metallbau Emmeln, whose course of travel is extremely wacky due to the eccentrically arranged wheels. As soon as you leave the station, the shaking starts immediately. It is a pity that there are not more installations of this kind. Thus, a ride on the unique piece of equipment is a duty of each visitor of the park.

Heege and the Looping Star

Fans of the interactive rides from Heege, which are often found in wildlife parks and smaller amusement parks, will get their money’s worth at Erse Park. Apart from wonderful airtime in the comet swing, the proven roller coaster fun on the Butterfly, two skydives, a Nautic Jet, a Luna Loop and a water roundabout, you will also find a very rare ride from the manufacturer: a Looping Star. This is a small, interactive ferris wheel, where you can make the gondolas roll over.

Just as well represented is the company Metallbau Emmeln, which, in addition to the above-mentioned wacky ride, offers a self-service boat swing (as you can also find in Magic Park Verden), a carpet slide and an electronic horse riding track, with which you can gallop through a dino landscape.


Close to the horse-riding track there is a summer toboggan run from Wiegand, which does not have any mountains. Although the Bobkartbahn can only offer a very compact layout with a travel length of 300m, it convinces more than many other considerably larger facilities of its kind due to its well thought-out track layout.

Furthermore, in the rear part of the park, one finds some devices that require a sportive participation. Beside the water tricycles which are rather difficult to handle as a single person, the canoe ride is especially recommendable, because here you can get some insights into the very well presented dinosaurs.

Lost World Rafting

The ABC Rides Spinning Raft Prototype Lost World presents a similar picture. Besides the prehistoric exhibits, the prototype can impress with its built-in lift technology. The ride itself has little in common with a real rafting, but it is fun due to the winding descent. The return to the station is unfortunately very slow, as there is only a minimal current.


Since the level of wetness was unfortunately limited, the nearby rubber dinghy slides from Dutch production had to be tested. As they obviously missed to install the boat return in the middle of the layout, you have to carry your boat to the starting position yourself. Similar to the Schloss Beck you are allowed to press the button to start the slide yourself. Especially worth mentioning is the variety of slides, which besides the usual wave slide, had one steep slide and one with a curve.


The park also has a roller coaster with the so-called Familien-Achterbahn. The Force One ride built by Zierer is of course perfect for the target audience of the park and was wonderfully integrated into the park landscape. The train is much more comfortable than on newer installations, only the mechanical brake is a bit unexpected.

Conclusion Erse Park

The Erse Park is one of the small parks that you should definitely visit if you find yourself in this area. The staff members were all more than friendly and you never had the feeling to be unwanted. The park itself has a wonderful portfolio of rides, which you should definitely have experienced once. The continuously present primeval theme may be a bit strange at first, but can show some very well presented, although sometimes violent scenes. Fortunately, this does not belong to the image of an average small park. Erse Park is simply above avarage.

A day at Serengeti Park


After I spontaneously wanted to go to BonBon-Land with Stefan and Hauke and for various reasons it didn’t work out, the trip was postponed for a few days into the future and Hauke and myself went to the Serengeti of the Lüneburger Heide and visited the Serengeti-Park in Hodenhagen.


The journey to Hodenhagen already pointed to a fuller day. The motorways were well frequented, the weather was not the worst and so it happened that we were stuck in a traffic jam for about half an hour. After we left the cash desks behind us and parked our car in the best location to the amusement park part, we visited the park part first, because the Serengetitour was still much too full for us. But there is also the possibility to drive with our own car through the safari.

Froschflitzer and Die! Wilde Maus

In terms of roller coasters, Serengeti Park has two rides. The first roller coaster of the park was the Tivoli Large Froschflitzer, which has an amazing number of pairs of friction wheels and generally rides a bit slower than other rides of this type. The second roller coaster is located in the Wasserland section of the amusement park and is the former fairground roller coaster Die! Wilde Maus from SBF Visa, known from the sister park Magic Park Verden. Although the ride is quite small, the small hills after the helix can make you smile in a flash.

The HUSS Corner

Almost all rides in this park were designed to match the theme and have a good to very good ride program. The portfolio of rides ranges from a Mack’s log flume to a small HUSS corner in the Wasserland, where you could ride a Break Dance, Top Spin, Enterprise, Condor, Pirat and even the prototype of a Rainbow. The ride on this ride was just brilliant and full of funny expressions of various powers, but unfortunately the ride, together with the Enterprise, moved to Sommerland Syd for the 2012 season.Sommerland Syd.


Right next to the top spin you can find another rare ride: A Mack Calypso. As with the Top Spin next door, the Calypso is particularly convincing because of its long running time. Apart from that, the ride has unfortunately lost some of its paint, which is why a refurbishment of the ride would be desirable in order to keep it as long as possible.


Not very convincing was the Zierer kite flight Fledermausflug, whose ride time was clearly way too short. Furthermore, the speed of the ride was simply too slow.

Victoria Free Fall Tower

The Victoria Free Fall Tower, a SBF Visa Tower not far from the Kongo boat swing, clearly belongs in the row of absolutely ridiculous rides. The constant up and down can already tempt one to some highlights, but after some time, the course becomes a little bit too monotonous and the not very comfortable bar makes one want to get out of the ride.

The Safaris

Furthermore, the Serengeti Park offers some unusual rides, which clearly include the two safaris (Aqua and Jungle Safari). A little more serious and informative, but not necessarily witless, is the big safari, which can take 1 1/2 hours by bus. The bus stops at the petting enclosure and at the elephants.


If you are interested in monkeys, a visit to the Affenland is highly recommended. Here you will find monkey enclosures where you can pet one or the other monkey if you want to and the monkey allows it. Unfortunately the ride is quite ugly in places, so that one or the other investment would be worthwhile.

Conclusion Serengeti-Park

All in all, Serengeti Park is a beautiful family park, which has some very rare rides that one would not want to miss. For this reason the park is definitely worth a visit and besides the large amusement park in Soltau and the Weltvogelpark in Walsrode, it is a wonderful destination in the Lüneburg Heath.
