    The park was originally called Kulturpark Plänterwald. During the times of the GDR it was immensely popular and attracted around 1.5 million visitors a year.

    After the reunification of Germany, the tender for the park was to be sold and seven different applicants hoped that they would be the lucky ones. In the end the Wittes were chosen, there is speculation now that the references were not properly checked!

    Things changed at the park new rides were brought in and the park was given a facelift and an overall entrance fee to bring it in line with “western” amusement parks. It was also given a new name Spree Park.

    It appears that now Spree Park did not have a captive audience of East Germans to keep it busy the popularity of the park soon waned and when the parking for the park was dramatically reduced it appeared to be a death knell for the once popular attraction. The owners reported debts in 1999 and in 2001 they decided they could no longer continue and closed the park.

    There was a big fire (or several at the same time) late last year ... so they may have stepped security up a bit.
