Lütge Land

19th August 2011

Lütge Land is a tiny children's park located to the side of a housing estate in the top left hand corner of Germany. The entrance booth has a sign on the wall advising that its target audience is children under twelve, and that is absolutely true. We were there for ten minutes, which was just long enough to complete one lap of the park and ride the Schmetterling (#1660).

 

Nordsee Spielstadt Wangerland

Our next stop was at the family entertainment centre with the rather unfortunate name, at least from the perspective of the foreign tourist. Nordsee Spielstadt Wangerland is predominantly an indoor facility built into a converted warehouse, with brightly lit rides casting colourful shadows around the place. Though the admission fee was higher than we'd have liked, it did include unlimited soft drinks, ice cream, coffee, and french fries; more elaborate choices were also available at an extra cost.

There were two ride operators on duty for our visit, and they were rotating between attractions based on where children were waiting. As such, we had to wait twenty minutes to ride Achterbahn (#1661), a particularly lively version of the Zamperla family coaster. We disembarked after four laps, but the children were still going around fifteen minutes later when we left!

The final stop of the day was at a substantial zoo with a good selection of animals augmented by a medium sized amusement area at the back. The largest ride was a flume, but there was also Holzwurmachterbahn (#1662), a medium tivoli design from Zierer. With the credit complete, I completed a lap of the cycle railway for an overhead photo, before wandering around the rest of the park. There was an interesting children's attraction next to the giraffe enclosure which looked at first glance like a mixture between a drop tower and two ferris wheels. Closer inspection showed that either wheel could be lowered (slowly!) to ground level for loading, before being raised to a suitable height to watch the animals. There's no way I'd have fit on board which was a shame; it looked fun!
