Father's Day here in Germany is celebrated during the church's celebration of the Ascension of Jesus into Heaven. So since the Ascension took place on the 2nd of June, it was a holiday for many of us. To celebrate Father's Day, we went on a family adventure at Tripsdrill.
The weather was fine and it was perfect for a family outing and what better way to do it than to spend it at an amusement park. Tripsdrill is located just outside Stuttgart and offers over a hundred attractions for visitors of all ages. The best hits and with the longest lines are the newest wooden rollercoaster ride called The Mammut, racing down a raging torrent in a washtub, racing to the finish line in a soapbox race among others.
My little girl was so ecstatic, she wanted to try all the rides. But since she is still small, she can only ride the kiddie rides. Wait a few more years and we can all take the rides that we want to our heart's content.
If you want to have a relaxing day, try Tripsdrill and experience culture, fun, adventure. Entrance to the park costs €23.00 per person but for a mixed group of at least 20 persons, each person only pays €16.50. Children below 4 years old are free of charge.
