History edit

The park was founded in 1969 by Ernst Mensinger under the name "Vogel-Pony-Märchenpark" (fairy tale park with birds and ponies). It was opened next to a newly built section of the Federal Motorway A3.[3] In the beginning, the park had a focus on animals. Later, more and more amusement rides were added. For several decades Acapulco divers entertained the visitors.

The new owner after the death of Mensinger in 2017 is Matthias Mölter.[4]
