Movie Park Germany is one of the major theme parks in Germany and has a past going back to the early 70s. In that time it has gone through half-a-dozen name changes, which perhaps gives an indication of the problems that have blighted this park. When I visited it in 2004 it was under the ownership of Warner Bros. who were having difficulty getting the park to work, and back then it was closing rides. So it would be interesting to see how it had fared under the new owners.
On the upside making that decision did give us first goes on this coaster, the new addition since our last visit, and because we were first we were sent around a few times, bonus! The coaster is a kiddy inverter and alright.
Nightcrawler was my favourite character. Played by 3 different looking chinese men (so the teleportation section looked legit) he was terrible and must have joined the team not realising he was going to be face-painted like a smurf 2 times a day, and 3 during peak season.
Overall Movie World succeeds in having a range of attractions from very good (Van Helsing) to hilariously bad (X-Men) so enough to please everyone; optimists, pessimists and masochists alike. We could have spent more time in the park and ridden the SLC and some of the other rides but we chose to leave the park for a smaller family one further down the road.
