Theme parks are my absolute favourite. Hurling into that make-believe world, carefully crafted to thrill and amuse. It's addictive! I will be visiting Germany soon and I am absolutely delighted, but not really surprised, by how cool their theme parks are.
Defying stereotypical theme park standards, there are no long lines, even in the peak season. The food is excellent and reasonably priced. Looks like the rest of the world has a lot to learn from the Germans.
The Germans take pride in making exceptional things, and their theme parks are no exception. They tend to be themed around original, homegrown inspirations rather than borrowed from Hollywood tropes and American superheroes.
Germany also has a vibrant film-industry, where some of the world's most iconic movies are made. Several theme parks are built around state-of-art German movie studios, a treat for any movie-geek.
From super-fast rollercoasters to magical film sets, Germany is really winning the game when it comes to theme parks. Here's a peek at the scene.
