Things began to change quickly with the “take-off of the Affenwald, Speedride and Waldhaus brands” and the “going live” of the website. Formerly a small zoo in the outback of Thuringia, the facility, which was usually only noticed regionally, became one of the most popular destinations in the middle of Germany almost overnight. If you sit down in the monkey forest or go down the countless steep curves of the summer toboggan run in a fast lap, you will hear voices from all over the world: USA, Netherlands, Poland, India, South Africa, England, France, Russia, Belgium, Austria, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Australia and, among many others, of course from Germany. The Monkey Forest has arrived – also thanks to our very successful work – where it belongs: on the big stage of the “must-see animal attractions” worldwide. And along the way, sales have increased x-fold.
