Parkscout.de – Amusement Park of the Year 2016

HANSA-PARK receives “Amusement Park of the Year 2016” award

Parkscout.de, Europe‘s biggest web portal for amusement parks, asked its users to vote on the “Parkscout Award 2016” in six different categories. More than 50,000 amusement park fans complied and cast their vote.

HANSA-PARK won in the category “Amusement Park of the Year 2016” and “HANSA-PARK Resort by the Sea” came in first too!

“Our heartfelt thanks go to all users who voted for HANSA-PARK, Germany’s only event and theme park by the sea. We are very proud of these two awards. Having been crowned “Amusement Park of the Year 2016” - the most important award of the amusement park industry - is a great honour for us and all our employees. It shows that our unique mix of nature, park, history and award-winning action directly by the sea is exactly what our guests want,” says Christoph Andreas Leicht, personally liable partner and Managing Director of the family-led enterprise.

“However they also motivate us to further strengthen our position in North Germany, Germany and Europe. Real quality simply counts among guests and is worth more to them than mere size and run-of-the-mill fare. To us and to our guests, Germany’s only family and theme park by the sea is more than just another amusement park because it tells a story presented in a way that is possible only at HANSA-PARK located directly by the Baltic Sea and the Bay of Lübeck - a story from the Medieval Ages, a story of trade and shipping, of freedom and adventure, a story that has become a legend, but is still very much alive: “The HANSEATIC LEAGUE in EUROPE”. Every year, piece by piece, the theme world “symbolises” the Park’s name a bit more - and that’s what makes HANSA-PARK so unique in the world,” explains Leicht.

And all that without foregoing top-quality standards! As such, HANSA-PARK is Germany’s first amusement park that has been awarded the quality seal “OK for Kids” applicable to the entirety of the Park by TÜV Nord, a German testing and certification body, in accordance with the strict criteria of Deutscher Kinderschutzbund, a German child protection agency. So far, no other park in North Germany has received this impartial quality award.

And the message to our guests from all over Europe is: Visit the Baltic Sea region because it is home to Germany’s only family and theme park by the sea - HANSA-PARK - that offers heaps of fun at an absolutely affordable price!

Guests purchasing a season ticket, which is only € 80, can use all attractions and watch any event every day, as often as they wish – if that isn’t value for money, what else is?

It shows that not “only” do our attractions, such as the   hypercoaster KÄRNAN with its reverse free fall that is unrivalled in the world, feature state-of-the-art technology, but the Park is also at the top of the field when it comes to digital and web technology,” says a delighted Andreas Leicht, Managing Director of HANSA-PARK.
