Heide Park Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Thanks! 

Hmm, ok. Interesting to know 🧐 There was this sort of "street market" in the area by Krake (IDK if this is a temporary thing or not) which did sell a bunch of stuff, including food. So I did have some choice, it was just annoying that I initially walked to a few particular food places I had seen in the map and then had to go elsewhere.

Is Colossus the thing to rope drop now? Because I'm staying at the on-site hotel, so it'd make way more sense for me to start with Krake and Flug der Damonen. But I'm not sure.

I'll be there on a Monday, and it doesn't look like they're even offering Express Butler for sale that day, which I'm hoping means they're expecting minimal crowds, which would hopefully mean minimal waits on everything. But maybe y'all know more and can correct my misconceptions.

I'm expecting that the aforementioned B&M's, Colossus, and Desert Race will be my favorite 4 rides in the park in some order. I doubt I'll want to do more than 1 lap on any of the other coasters, but I have heard the bobsled is actually pretty good, so who knows. Ghostbusters 5D and the drop tower and maybe the water rides (if I'm in the mood to get wet that day) are on my list to do. Beyond that, just flats and mild stuff like the monorail, train, and gentle boat rides. Anything notable I'm missing that I should prioritize?

Their website says "attractions close at least 1 hour earlier" than the posted operating hours. How much more than an hour earlier? And why? Is this like where they cut off the line so everyone can go home at park close time? Or do they start shutting things down mid-afternoon if the park is slow that day?

Any other tips/advice I should keep in mind? I've heard that this isn't the best park in Germany, and that's fine. But I do want to try to make the most out of the day I'll have there.

^Tacking onto the above questions...

Some friends and I are visiting Hansa Park and Heide Park in mid-June. Unfortunately, due to scheduling, we'll have to do one of them on a Saturday (and the other on a Sunday).

Does anyone have advice on which park we should do on which day? Is one park more susceptible to Saturday crowds than the other? The issue is that Heide Park seems to have a lot more rides to experience...but Colossos is probably the only coaster we'll care to reride (hopefully a few times). Whereas Hansa Park seems smaller with fewer rides...but Karnan, Fluch Von Norgod, and Nessie all seem super re-rideable.

Would love to hear thoughts from locals or anyone who's been in a similar situation with these parks before!

I visited Heide Park last year in september. We stayed in the 'Holiday Camp', which has a dedicated park entrance (next to Scream). We started our two days with Dämonen and then Bobbahn and Limit and we then just made a tour around the park. I recommend to do these rides first, because right after park opening, the lines are usually short for these rides. I wouldn't go to Krake first, since it is the first big ride visitors pass when they enter the park via the main entrance.

 

On the second day of our visit, it was raining like hell during the afternoon, but it stopped raining around 3pm. At that moment, the park was already dead (it was a weekday and no school holiday, so before the rain it was already really calm at the park), but all (major) rides stayed open until 5 pm (1 hour before the official park closure).

It was so calm when it stopped raining that I could do 11 consecutive rides on Dämonen without me having to leave my seat once between 4 and 5 pm.

I have no idea at all. My prediction is that it will depend on the weather that weekend. The park you visit on the best day will probably be the busiest...

We usually go the Heide Park first, since it is the closest to home for us, so we can have more sleep on the night prior to the trip.
