Geiselwind started as a classic German Märchenwald (fairy tale) park that featured some animals like birds and ponies. It was founded by Ernst Mensinger, who bred exotic birds. The park focused on those animals in their first years, it was only in the eighties Geiselwind became a theme park when they started to add the first attractions.

In 2016 the park has been sold to showman Matthias Mölter. Geiselwind is a small park containing some birds and other small animals, and a collection of fairground attractions. The park has almost none to little theming.  The main ride of the park is its Vekoma Boomerang coaster, which is Germany’s only Vekoma boomerang coaster!
