The funny and wet whitewater course

You should not be scared of getting wet here. The guests in the tree trunk boats are just a toy for the god of the seas, Poseidon.

What's special: A ride through a greek temple ruin

You don't only get wet fun at the Oktoberfest beer tents - some rides offer it, too. The whitewater ride "Poseidon" takes you to the greek gods' empire. After boarding one of the tree trunks that serve as boats, the 320 meters long ride through the antique temple ruin begins. During your journey you will meet Nike, the goddess of victory in the Greek mythology, who gives you a taste of what is waiting for you. Further highlights are the waterfalls down in the deep, one twelve meters high and the other one still from seven meters height. No matter if you are sitting in the front, in the middle or in the back: You will absolutely get wet.

Poseidon: For adventurers and water lovers

"Poseidon" is one of the world's largest mobile whiterwater rides. The ride is spectacular but also family-friendly. Five people fit into everyone of the 13 tree trunk looking boats and of course, the bravest one of them sits in the front. The interior design of the whitewater ride may look antique, but technically it is completely up to date. Ten meters high water fountains and four meters high flames turn the ride into a real adventure. It is up to you to decide at which weather conditions you will visit gods' empire.

Poseidon for backseat drivers: A journey through Greek mythology

Poseidon, godfather Zeus' brother, is the god of the seas in the greek mythology. He lives in a crystal palace down in the deep sea and is often pictured with a long beard a trident. Poseidon is the master of the seas, he creates storms or even tsunamis or lets you travel in peace over the calm sea. And if he makes you wet during your ride - please don't take it personal.
