Owner description: Germany's first theme park, is in the countryside just outside Stuttgart. Erlebnispark Tripsdrill opened back in 1929. Today, there are 100 attractions for all ages, includingthe new catapult roller coaster "Karacho" which accelerates its vehicles to 100 km/h in a mere 1.6 second. Over time, the park was extended to link up more and more with nature, for this is the major appeal of Tripsdrill. Thus today, more than 100 original attractions are laid out over 77 hectares - including the roller coaster "Mammut", one of the few in Germany of wooden construction, with a height of 30 metres, and the new catapult roller coaster "Karacho" which accelerates its vehicles to 100 km/h in a mere 1.6 seconds. Yet little ones also obtain good value for money in Tripsdrill, as many of the attractions are specially conceived with the younger visitor in mind, for example the new indoor playground "Gaudi-Viertel" in the Village Street. The theme park's slogan is "Schwaben [Swabia] anno 1880". All the attractions are centred on this theme and evoke Swabia's tradition and history. In this respect, Tripsdrill's approach is generally tongue-in-cheek rather than serious - but not without valuable snippets of information for anyone interested: about wine-making - "from the vine to the glass", the Swabian housewife - "1850 wash-house", handicraft and many other curiosities. And, since Tripsdrill's origins lie in gastronomy, a great deal of attention is paid to the quality of the meals. The "Gasthaus zur Altweibermühle" waiter-service restaurant on site is reputed for its excellent regional cuisine and game specialties - entirely home-made to grand-mother's original recipe. In the neighbouring wildlife park (Wildparadies), Arctic wolves, bears and numerous wild animals native to Europe await visitors. It is possible to see them up close on a feeding tour with the game warden. Bald eagles, vultures and owls also feature among the residents of the wildlife park. The falconry proposes a walking tour or a flight demonstration in the afternoon. In open-air enclosures, visitors can approach several species of deer and even feed them. For those seeking to experience nature with all their senses, there are the forest adventure path (Walderlebnis-Pfad), barefoot path (Barfuß-Pfad) and adventure playground (Abenteuerspielplatz) to have a good romp. With its original accommodation facilities, Tripsdrill enables to extend this adventure amidst pure nature. In the nature resort, located in front of the wildlife park, there are comfortable shepherds' wagons, and tree houses hidden in the forest. The shepherds' wagons can accommodate up to five people. Each one offers a small sitting area with flat-screen TV, a refrigerator, washing facilities and heating. Showers and WCs are available in a modern central sanitation block. The tree-houses for 2-4 and 5-6 people are comfortably equipped, each with its own sanitation, a sink, a refrigerator and a coffee machine, as well as a living room with TV. From the veranda, it is possible to hear the wolves howling in the evening - an exhilarating experience!

This is THE place for Kids up to 15 years old or more... ;-)
Great installations and good food.
Most of the peak seasons are crowded but this is the same everywhere. For families with kids this is a must go!

We went as a family, ages from 5 to 57. We all had fun. There is always something for everyone. We would go there again. We spent all of our time in the amusement park and didn't even get any time to visit the zoo (animal park)...

It was fun for the kids and less so for me since it was very much as you would expect a fun park to be and one has to be a bit younger to appreciate the fun parks these days.

The Tripsdrill Park has 2 "categories": The Erlebnispark (amusement park) and Wildparadies (with animals). I only visited the Erlebnispark and I can say it was great. Greatest attractions are Donnerbalken, the Mammut (the big, wooden roller-coaster), G'sengte Sau (mustn't miss, it's extremely fun!!) and Badewannen Fahrt (don't have to miss either, it's a great ride!). You can find attractions both for kids (big and small) and for adults. There are many places to sit and have a drink or eat.
But there are 3 bad things about the amusement park:
First, it is expensive (see prices on their site).
Second, it closes at 18:00, which is early in my opinion.
And third, it is hard to find, because it is in a small town, Cleebronn and to reach it we had to go through some villages.

After all, the visit to Tripsdrill was very nice & fun.
