Has this been any of your guys' experiences? Like would I have to get a lot more comfortable driving manual if I intend to rent a car in Germany?
You can easily get an automatic if you request that while booking. It may be an additional fee, though.

Awesome, will keep in mind once we firm up some things!
Another side question for those in/around Germany... As far as navigation goes, is using phone navigation such as Waze good enough to get around the country? Or is it worth me buying the dedicated GPS maps for Europe for my Garmin? Debating on if I really need to or not, seeing how awesome the Waze app is for navigation (here in the US at least!).
As far as I know I can recommend Google Maps. It's free of charge and will be working perfectly for your purposes.

Go there! It's well worth it's price an the detour you will have to take. You only need a couple of hours to reride everything you want if you can hit it on a weekday. Even oh the weekend or a holiday a full day is good enough.
G'sengte Sau is the first ever Gerstlauer Coaster. Mammut is the first wooden coaster to be completely planned and built by germany companies. Karacho is a great Gerstlauer. Rasender Tausendfüßler is a nice Zierer. And there's a Sky Fly with a revoluion counter. Also, food is affordable and yummy and Parking is free!
