The first park, a little over an hour away from Munich Airport was Bayern Park, a mid-sized family run park. The main reason for visiting this park was for their new coaster Freischutz, a new custom Maurer-Sohne launched ride.
More carbonite kiddies.
At the end of the day we were given an hour riding on the caterpillar ride, which went down well, although I think the consensus amongst the group was that the toboggan ride was much better. The park is very pleasant and a nice gentle way to start the trip. We knew bigger and better parks were coming and whilst it was a shame that the signature ride wasn't running I think we all still had a good time.
Subsequent to the trip I've heard that the Freischutz coaster is terrible and no-one who's ridden it has had anything good to say about it...A shame.
