RUB Bauwesen CompEng


On Friday, the 26th of October 2018 CompEng visited the Movie Park amusement park in Bottrop.

With its numerous attractions and an area of 40 hectares it is always worth a visit. Especially the Halloween Horror Fest is an annual must see. It features over 250 scare actors and extra attractions like mazes and scarezones, as well as shows.

At 9 in the morning we started our journey at the Bochum main station. After everyone received their entrance card along with a map of the park, the fun began! We had the whole day to experience and discover the different attractions in the park and luckily, we benefited from our early arrival as we didn’t have to wait in line for too long to go on to the rollercoasters. For some it was their first visit to an amusement park and we are really happy they had a good time!

Attractions like the 60 meter high Free Fall Tower or the MP Xpress, which travels up to 80 km/h, ensured adrenaline rushes and unforgettable moments.

Those, who managed to stay until 6pm, experienced the park turning into a horror show! Fog and atmospheric lights, monsters and special horror attractions guaranteed an eerily beautiful adventure. Even the heavy rain could not disturb the mood.

Thanks for everyone who participated. We really enjoyed the trip!


A special shout out to the FSVK, who helped to realize this event with their financial support.
