City Elements


The heart of PAROOKAVILLE and central drop-in center for all questions. At the townhall, all visitors become official PAROOKAVILLE citizens by picking up their own free PAROOKAVILLE Passport and the annual stamp. There you can also find the daily PAROOKAVILLE newspaper, an info point and the official lost & found office.

Bill Parooka Monument

Who, if not founding father Bill Parooka, should stand in the heart of PAROOKAVILLE? The gigantic monument overlooks its entire legacy with a height of 7 metres. Citizens of the first years had the opportunity to immortalize themselves in the pedestal of the statue and thus become a part of the legend.

Parooka Church

The city church is free of conventions and religions. According to the motto: "Marrying who or what makes you happy". There are no limits for a wedding. Afterwards there is a certificate of marriage, a stamp for the PAROOKAVILLE passport and a photo. In hardly any other city do so many people love and marry each other as here.

Post Office

The post office is a historic institution where the vision of PAROOKAVILLE is spread to the whole world. Every year, thousands of citizens are sending postcards to their loved ones and let them know about the legend.


If the luck in love at Parooka Church didn‘t work out, the Lottery can only go well, as it tests the citizen‘s luck at cards. Whether it's a lotto wheel or a wheel of fortune: every day, the sugar sweet lottery fairies care for great prizes from roller coaster rides to PAROOKAVILLE Visa. Good luck!

Bermuda Quadrangle

At this place monster waves and violent storms arising. Although the cause is less mystical than the Bermuda Triangle, it is wild at any time of the day. In the 700 square meter pool, the citizens can cool down and continue partying at the same time overlooking the cult stage Bill's Factory. There also is an award for excellent swimming skills.


PAROOKAVILLE has a special jail for its citizens. Here you get lifelong as art under your skin! Get inked by the arrested tattoo artist and gain a lasting memory of PAROOKAVILLE.
