Amusement parks in Germany.
Amusement Parks Roll Out the Fun –
From roller coasters to shows to Lego blocks to nature walks, there’s lots to do outside.
Let’s start with the good news. First, Europe’s amusement parks open earlier and will stay open later this year. Want more good news? It will be a banner year as some parks celebrate anniversaries, while other parks open new rides. That’s not all. More parks are providing hotels and other on-site accommodations to make a trip to an amusement park a several day affair. Some also provide two-day passes and season passes at very reasonable rates.
As for the bad news, the only thing that we can think of is that there are so many amusement parks in Europe, you won’t be able to check them all out in just one season. Here are a handful of parks that are centrally located and that you might be able to fit into your schedule this year.
These parks are all easy to get to and many of them offer special discounted tickets via the USO.
