Holiday Park | First trip in Germany
A few weeks ago, we made our first trip since our arrival in Germany. Yes, it was just a day trip, but I believe it was a perfect debut for our family.
The truth is, I researched a trip to give to Diego who had his birthday at the beginning of September. The park was my chosen destination, which was fun for the whole family.
I’ve been dying to start visiting the castles and villages in Germany, but I know they’re not the most attractive trips for kids, so I’m holding back (for now!). Diego is not a kid, but he loves an amusement parks, so that’s where I based my research.
With 1h and 20 minutes by car, we arrived in the region of Haßloch where the Holiday Park is and the route was very quiet, this distance is a match for our kids patience.
I confess that I thought it was a small park with no huge infrastructure would impress me, but I am positively surprised.
Why to visit the Holiday Park
The Holiday Park was well structured, clean, full of things to do and had several options for snacks and food. Everyone had a great time, including Arthur, who ended up being tall enough to participate in some attractions that required a minimum of 85cm in height.
There are several attractions for children, so the three of them here enjoyed it a lot and had a very good day, without tantrums and boredom. For babies, some attractions allowed parents together or older siblings (Alice helped and went with Arthur in some of them).
For bigger kids and adults, the Holiday Park has some more radical attractions. We spotted two big roller coasters (only one was working), free fall tower and also others with water (not that radical, but fun).
We also liked that they had a playground area, for them to run and climb on their own. The girls did not want to leave.
We also loved a closed area, which would be perfect for rainy days (which, luckily, we didn’t need)
The kids found everything interesting. The highlights were a huge structure to go up and down, ball pit, carpet slide, some spin attractions, a baby area and a stage for small shows.
What to eat at the Holiday Park
We had one meal at the park and it was like fast food. Hamburger with french fries and chicken nuggets, but I’ll say it was super tasty, everyone loved it! The “adult” size dish, the one with cheeseburger and french fries, cost around 10 euros.
From what we’ve noticed since we arrived, for Germans, that is considered expensive. For Canadian and Americans, however, 10 dollars for a dish is considered cheap! We saw several families with huge refrigerated boxes and pull carts, full of snacks, food and drinks.
Some large groups looked like they intended to open a mini-market!
Jokes aside, I thought it was cool that the park accepts that people bring whatever food and drinks. For alcoholic beverages I am not sure, but I believe so.
Holiday Park charges by height, less than 85cm is free, and from there, tickets range from 12.50 to 35.50 euros. Parking costs $6. From November to March, the park has reduced prices for the winter period (park with reduced attractions too!).
