Europe's largest tropical vacation world becomes Strong Viking's newest venue! On July 1, 2023, the Strong Viking Water Edition will celebrate its premiere at Tropical Islands!
Just 60 km from Berlin, you can go swimming twice. First at our spectacular Water Edition and then under the palm trees of Tropical Islands. On the course of 4, 7, 13, 19 or 42 km you will already be amazed by this huge tropical temple. Because our unique course with over 40 cool obstacles will wind directly past the 360-meter-long and 107-meter-high hall.
On the course, it's all about facing your own challenges, getting stronger, overcoming fears, but most of all: having fun together! Gather your friends, family, colleagues or acquaintances to experience this incredible adventure with you!
In this edition, you will face the famous Strong Viking obstacles such as the Flying Ragnar, Storm the Castle and, of course, the infamous twelve-meter high Fjord Drop. In the immediate surroundings of the Spreewald, you'll always have a fantastic view of the gigantic Tropical Islands structure. A guaranteed fantastic Strong Viking experience!
The Water Edition in Berlin is the perfect place for a weekend with friends. Action at the Strong Viking obstacle course, relaxation in Europe's largest tropical vacation world and only a few minutes by car or train from the capital.
