Just outside Stuttgart is the Erlebnispark Tripsdrill, which has already been named Europe's best theme park several times. Its 90th anniversary is coming up in 2019. For in 1929, the family business started with an open-air restaurant and the first "Altweibermühle" (old wives' mill) ride. Today, visitors can experience over 100 original attractions, the Wildparadies and the Nature Resort. Tripsdrill offers a wide range of experience and adventure – for all generations: roller coasters, water and family attractions – here you will find the right thing to match your temperament.
The highlight, which already clearly visible from afar, is the catapult roller coaster "Karacho". Like a rocket launch, the ride accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 1.6 seconds. The wooden roller coaster "Mammut" features cars with a saw-shaped design reaching speeds of around 80 km/h. To match this, there will be a new, partly covered adventure playground in spring: Fun for children of all ages is guaranteed – whether it be climbing, sliding, playing in the sand, or splashing with water. Nine different areas with 250 play elements are available over an area of 1,400 m2. The new indoor play area "Gaudi-Viertel" also promises plenty of fun with numerous play areas for juniors, a children's free-fall tower and the lovingly furnished toy museum. Europe's highest water ride "Omis Badewanne" is there to cool off park visitors or – for the smaller ones among the visitors – the Mühlbach-Fahrt ride.
The adventure park also includes Tripsdrill Wildparadies, a wildlife paradise just 10 minutes' walk away. Here animal lovers come into their element, with over 50 different animal species to observe, touch and feed. New to the collection are the otters, which you can watch swimming and romping around. You can learn interesting facts at 2:30 p.m. during the feeding of wolves, lynxes, bears and other animals and during the flight demonstration of the birds of prey on the falconer's stand (daily programme items in the summer season except on Fridays). The forest adventure trail, barefoot trail and adventure playground with ropes course around the rustic "Wildsau-Schenke" tavern ensure plenty of variety.
