doesn't have much in the way of amusement parks. Given it's popularity as a
holiday destination, I'd think setting up a city amusement park would be a
pretty good investment. Something along the line of Weiner Prater in Vienna
would be ideal.
It does have
one area called
Luna Park that's basically a small funfair, and not that great an
example. when I've visited Prague it's always been shortly before Christmas
so it's not been open. From what I've seen it's not really worth going out
of your way for, but the Prague Aquarium in the same park and Prague Zoo
nearby mean you do have a reason to be in the area.
looking for thrill rides in Prague this is what I'd recommend. It's a bit of
the usual tourist trail, you need to get the Metro to a station called Palmovka,
and from their get a bus two stops to a stop called Kelerka. There you
should be right by the car park and entrance.
bobsleigh there is some debate to if it's a roller coaster or not. I
personally count full circuit ones like this as a roller coaster. This one
consists of a huge layout, I had a look on Google maps and it takes up a
plot of land approximately 300 metres by 60 metres. Unfortunately the first
part of the ride feels like a bit of a waste as there's no steep strait at
the start to give you an initial speed boost, so the first part of the ride
is to mainly just gather momentum. Once you've got this momentum though the
ride becomes a thrilling prospect, it can take a couple of goes to get used
to breaking the cars. Once this has happened you can tear around at a
thrilling rate, and you do feel a genuine sense of danger as you gather
speed coming in to some of the corners.
touch I should mention is at the end of the course they've put a speed trap.
Don't worry you won't get any points on your licence, but you do get your
speed displayed on a screen as you pass. This is a nice way of adding a
challenging and competitive element to proceedings. It's something that will
be on my itinerary on future trips to Prague.
